My first big cruiser that I built. Ever. I think it was about 12 inches long, not big compared to most of the stuff here, but a good start for me. The four pictures I uploaded all look the same to me, but whatever, I hate the one photo per M.O.C. thing going on with these old creations.
About this creation
Picture number two. You must be wondering why this is number "two". Well, main photograph is number one, this is number two, then the others! Who cares this picture didn't get first place and is now crying as he drives away from the award ceremony? Do I really have to describe the features here? Ah, whatever. First off, the color scheme was based on how the Republic spray-painted their junk.
, and that is why I someti-wait! This is a picture of sunset at Artist's Palette in Death Valley, not photograph three! Move along, nothing to see here!
As I was saying, the ship is armed with 7 cannons and 1 missile, and this meager armament makes me sometimes wonder how such a ship was given a grand name like "Cruiser". Well, those paper-and-cardboard biplanes were called cruisers just for floating in the sky, so whatever.
Like all awesome spaceships, this one has a head. A big one! 60 inches of friggin' expensive durasteel just to protect an Mars Mission idiot messing with a computer! What's with all the armor if the guy is so mezmerised by what he is seeing on that glowing screen that he doesn't notice the flying rock, erm, asteroid flying towards the flying-thing-sometimes-called-a-cruiser-for-no-apparent-reason that he is "piloting"?
