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.
Rear view of the carrier. I think my favorite feature was the stacked engine design which enabled fighters to access either side of the fighter bays. This design later inspired my second minifig scale carrier, Gibraltar.
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?
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?!?"...
