About this creation
"Carried on divine wings, she soars to the highest reaches of the heavens."
The Goal After my beginning experiments on the Inferno, I wanted to build a ship with a full interior, as well as have a more realistic purpose and logical design.
The Story As a new prototype vessel, the Sanford Class was a departure from the standard Futuron naval design of large, multi-role warships. However, the smaller size and simpler armament allowed for many more of the class to be produced. In combat, the Sanford Class proved very effective in long range strike and support rolls. Unfortunately, the Sanfords performed very poorly in close combat, due largely to the lack of heavy armor and ineffective range of the four dual deck guns.
The deck guns were designed as a dual purpose weapon for offensive and defensive roles. However, their poor rotation rate, short range, and fraility in combat, led many captains to avoid close combat at all costs.
The Sanford is simply awesome, The multi-layers and amount of detail is phenomenal. The kaleidoscope of color with so much of the black intermixed with the white is a bit hard on the eyes in some views, but who am I to talk, when many of the 2 foot high spires of my Lego Coruscant are 2 and 3 colors? Beyond that, which is not meant as a critique but an honest observation, the design and amount of detail, to say it again, are incredible and a feast for the eyes to look at closely. I'm adding you to my favorites and look forward to viewing more of this, and your other creations.
Oh, BTW, what are you planning to name the next ship in your line? The Lamont? LOL
