Blacktron II Centurion
About this creation
This is my first large scale ship and first puplic presentation of one of my creations. Ever since I was 8, I dreamed of building a large scale Blacktron II ship. I have named it the Centurion. The name comes from the term given to a Roman leader of 100 soldiers. I gave it this name because the ship was designed to bring 100 soldiers or two Aerial Intruders into a battlefield.
The ship can be likened to a WWII Higgins boat but on a larger scale. It was bulit to be large enough to encounter cruiser or destroyers. It was not designed to be a cruiser for space battles or a long voyage space craft. The sole purpose is to transport soldiers, equipment and or ships to the front. It in most cases it performs one of the follow tasks. It brings 100 soldiers, 2 AA guns, 6 jeeps and 4 remote machine guns into a battle or it brings 2 Aerial Intruders and two extra flight pods into a conflict. The ship has removable engine componets, several turrets and a spacious interior.

It took me 3 months to build this 126 stud long 52 stud wide ship. I focused hard on combining playabilty, size, and creative building. I am really proud that every place on the ship is accessable via either sliding roof or removable modular rooms and celings. I also worked hard on the engines. Several parts of the engines open, slide and move in some way shape or form. I also attached a battery pack to the engine core to create a sparkling blue lighting effect of an engine core in use. I hope you enjoy.

   The turrets have extra shielding for protection.

   The turrets can also track multiple targets with the same gun placement.



Enlarge image
   These turrets provide intense forward firing power. I believe the Executor on The Return of the Jedi could have used a pair also.

   These core units use fule rods to ignite the engines.

   The Engine super core ignites. Look at the door on the core that opens for access. Where is Spock when you need him.

   This is the bridge. It tracks ship operations, course and enemy targets.

   The galaxy is filled with Death Stars.



Enlarge image
   This is the control tower. It regulates ship to ship traffic, launching of ships and troops. They hate to be "Buzzed" so dont try it Maverick.

   2 AA Guns

   The AA guns have plantable feet to allow a fixed postion o be established.

the ship as a whole is great, gotta love those turrets! You should have a pic of a guy sitting in it, though. It'd look a lot more… actiony… the doors are cool, and the interior is sooo cool. though, the black and white color scheme must really do a number on the Centurion's crew's vision! heheh, jk, jk… come see my stuff!!

It's nice. I don not doubt that it required loads of time, energy, and pieces. However, I am reluctant to give you 5 =)'s. It really needs some greebelies. That, and the inside might need some colored flat tile pieces. Congrats on MOC of the day, though.
