Starship based on a Star Wars Extended Universe vehicle. The Sheild Ship is used to protect ships when passing close to a sun from the extreme heat. *This ship was featured in Timothy Zahn's Thrawn Trilogy.*
As pointed out in one of the reviews I did utilize the Millennium Falcon model to make this, and used almost exclusivley pieces from that set. So, think of it as an alternate model.
It would have to be at least large enough to shield the official UCS Mellinium Falcon that is coming out this year, sence that one is actually built to proper scale for minifgs. In any case not a bad attempt. I have always liked the flying umbrella design they used for the shield ships.
I have read about these shield ships but not seen one visualised in 3D. I think your spot on, especially the tea room, it must be hot work.
In response to the review below, I was thinking how a shield ship would work and how big it would need to be. well I don't think it would need to be that big because the shadow behind the shield would be bigger than it and the shadow should get bigger the closer the shield gets to the source. Just a thought, great MOC.
