About this creation


In mid-winter in early 2001, I tried my hand at microfig-scale spacecraft. I drew most of my design inspiration from a blend of different anime. I started off with the cruisers, then the fighters, and the carrier. The most challenging thing about building at this scale is giving detail. I quickly learned that making a small model look huge meant using small pieces. Although I'd say the overall work is not my best, it was good practice for later Lego models.

   A single fighter in the black and yellow scheme (denotes a fighter/bomber variant). The carrier held a total of 12 fighters.

   Just aft of the conning tower on the carrier was this little shuttle craft.

Incredible! I've been drooling over this for years. I have quite the armada myself, but what you have is amazing. The cruisers are my favorite. Have you ever thought about doing more ships in that style on that scale? Like, frigates, more types of cruisers, capital ships etc?

Alas, once again you leave me breathless. No, really, i can't breathe! I've started making some micro ships, but i doubt they will ever compare to yours.

Very, very nice. You should change the colors of the small ships to red and white. You should also post this at LEGO and more LEGO: http://laml.proboards3.com/

Dan, THIS IS AWESOME. I have a craving for parts, but my imitation will have to do. check out my site to see it. it truly stinks, and i'm trying to get more pics of it, but i think my internet is broke (sorta). can you get me instructions for the cruisers? that would be awesome. anyway, keep on building those monster ships too. And the Nasal Avenger. It's one of my favorites.-Phil

Being a MechWarrior fanatic, I've always wanted to build a dropship or two for my BattleMechs to complete my "army", but I've always run out of useful parts. What I noticed when I first saw your models was that they looked big. Then I read they're in microscale! I said "What?!?"...
