A modular tanker for transporting liquid chemicals across space.
About this creation
I figured it was about time to build a big space MOC in yellow. So I put together this modular space tanker over the course of the late spring and summer. The basic shape draws on inspiration from the Discovery from "2001." There's not much interior on this one but I tried to give it as much detail as possible. Overall, a different looking civilian addition to my Lego spaceship gallery.
YAY!, beat him, jeez that man is persistant....ANYWAY.
I saw this on Flickr about 2 days ago, and thought....hmm? civilian? then you put it here, and i figure, you said, "another adition to my civilian..." or something like that. AND I thought, what, BAH! civilian? stick a couple of insignia on it, and you have got the perfect tug (the shortened one).
May you have fun with your building....what a world, what a world.....
I LOVE IT!! It looks EXCACTLY like the spaceship in Doctor Who: Series 3 in the episode "42" where they take fuel stuff from hte sun and this guys all liek: omg! my eyes r on fire yo! Then he looks at ppl and theyr liieeekk omg!! noooseeee!!! and hes all liek burn with me in this darth-vader-y voice its awesome i love it!!!
This is how a LEGO starship should look like.
I realy like the details. You can tell that there was a lot good thinking done to create this vessel.
Keep up the good work ......

This is everything I wish my silly little tanker made out of nothing but the TIE Collection set (http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?i=1253757) could be! I don't mind it being yellow at all. It's a great color for a non-military craft, IMO. Anyway, awesome job. I bet it got tedious building all of those matching segments!
Woa Awesome! I love it! I'm not a big fan of yellow but it still looks amazing. It looks almost like it needs a few legs and it'd be a catapillar tanker. I love the fold out loading ramp...I've never seen that before. This thing is uber-cool!
Maybe it's just me, but I've never seen such a scwheet ramp and/or docking door like that. Nicely done, the greebles look great, smoothness all over. Your shipyard aims to please and doesn't let down with this latest creation! Cheers! ~ Paul.
