Star Wars Darth Vader Skyhook
Darth Vader returning in his Tie to one of his skyhooks orbitting Curascant.
About this creation

I had little to none information concerning Star Wars Skyhooks. I knew that they were orbitting Curascant and that inportant persons owned one to keep their precious things safe rather than having them on the surface. Darth Vader owned several of them. Having found nothing but a comic book picture of one I just let my imagination go and ended up with this round baby.




Round constructions are always a bit of a gamble, but the construction went rather good. Starting with an inside structure of technic parts the whole thing kept fairly together. In between the top and bottom I had to put some 80 smaler circular units, that join both sides together.




Its about 60cm large (23,6inch) and about 18cm ( 7 inches) high. I used 6900 parts to build it.

Very curious, while I see indeed the Skyhook I also see a red lego car in the main picture, a wee bit left on tom of the skyhook, easter egg ?

Quoting rob messenger if I was impressed by the roundness and watertightness of the droid ship this just blows it away. again, I'd love to know how you built the ring and the ribs to such precision
This is an early creation. You could call it a try out. Wedge plates are kept together with hinge bricks. The top part is a reflection of the bottom parts and both parts are kept together with technic parts. The construction is not that strong as the droid control ship, but it's ok...as long as my cat does not try to jump on it.

25.876452131 out of 5. you woulda gotten 26, but I need more info: what is a skyhook, apart from your laughable description of a description of some words in a book somewhere? Try making a World Devastator. they're awesome and a worthy challenge for you! Great Job!!!

Do you know what kind of skyhook it was, because there is one type which would slingshot you around it (like a gravitational pull..) an increase your speed 10 fold!

Quoting alex Mc That's pretty beastly. the curves seem almost natural thanks to the huge scale, and the level of detail is amazing. is there a reference picture on the internet?
No, nothing at all. There were a lot of skyhooks hanging over the planet. Strangely enough no one knows how they really look. But they existed in different shapes and sizes. The only picture is one by the brothers Hildebrand, and the shape of it looks rather classic, so I gave it my own interpretation. And as I like round shapes and rather difficult constructions, I made this round one.
