A ship capable of carrying people to distant parts of Sar V or IV or even to distant planets!
About this creation
When the Sar had established a stable amount of city-states they started contruction on metal vehicles that could travel great distances. No, it wasn't a car, but this ship. This is the later, more upgraded version though.

   The Sar have a tendancy to see the down side of life, and thus most of the vehicles are dark colored. The first version had no coloring.

   Very aerodynamic and disc shaped.



Enlarge image
   It needs a lot of power to haul it's precious cargo.



Enlarge image
   These doors took a while to come up with, but they sure do look cool.



Enlarge image
   It looks like a face . . .



Enlarge image
   I'm sure some people will find it simplictically greebalicious.



Enlarge image
   It also comes equipped with hover pads on the bottom, found before leaving Terra Nova.

   I found a way to use halberds well!

   See how cool it is?

   Each quarter of the disk comes off for storage when landed.



Enlarge image
   They all connect, and food and water can be stored inside without spoiling in a newly formed colony.



Enlarge image
   With the containers gone, it can no longer go into space, but it can fly faster on the ground, and in the air.

   The roof removed for inside viewing.

   Yep, lights. Most people forget that minifigs aren't all like Vin Diesel.



Enlarge image
   The control board for the engine. It's so smooth, so many buttons . . .

   A veteran watching over a rookie. This ship doubles as a military transport.



Enlarge image
   The cool controls with the cool floating controls. The way you fly it is by moving your hand around the yellow ball, causing the ship to do the same. It's kinda like a computer mouse.



Enlarge image
   The engine also removes to give a colony power.

   And if you remove any more unnecessary parts from the ship you get a hovercraft for the colony to transports goods on.

Just awesome. The whole concept of a ship capable of starting a colony is sorta fascinating to me, so this is just neat. Interesting how it can become so many things, like a cargo hovercraft or a transport. I also like how the various parts can detach and be used for storage or power. Awesome. Very well executed and a very good concept you're going for there. I love it.

Funny that I never noticed this when you first posted it. Cool creation. I love the idea of a mobile transport that serves as the foundation for a colony, and you executed it very well. Awesome work.

I definately agree with Keith. I love how the quarters seperate to serve as storage for colony goods. It would be pretty cool if you managed to get some doors on the inside that would close when the quarters were seperated, allowing space travel. Of course, that's kinda pushing it.;)
