Finally!! After months of upgrading, degrading, breaking, and fixing, I am finally satisfied with my new Hunters Glory! You have no idea of how many designs and tweaks this ship has had. I've added things, only to find out I don't want them on. But, I guess I like it. Expect a v3. The background info and history is the same, though: This is a Crimson-Industries battle cruiser that the bounty hunter Blue Shadow stole, upgraded, and now uses for missions. Although he named it Windgazer, this ship is is known to carry some of the most notorious bounty hunters in the galaxy, therefore earning the name Hunters Glory. This ship features two laser guns, two long range laser guns, a laser turret, an old R3-A1 unit, a radar dish for tracking and communications, landing gear, storage compartment, smuggler's compartment, a boarding ramp, and a modified HCES-184 Hyperdrive. This is by far my best MOC. Sorry for any blurry pics and light problems, I hate my camera.
About this creation
Heres how I built the engines.
R3-A1 unit. He's only there for extra help and auto-pilot. He is the only droid Blue Shadow trusts.
The duel cannon laser turret. The red stud is a auto lock-on, so no matter how fast the enemy ship is going and where it is, the turret follows the enemy ship.
The satellite dish. When the turret has a lock on an enemy ship, the radar dish follows the lock-on and processes information about the enemy to the pilot's controls.
The landing gear. Although the ramp doesn't extended to the ground when the landing gear is being used (it only works when the landing gear is folded up) I thought the landing gear was a nice touch.
Now onto the compartments. This ship has two flaps that open and close on the side of the ship's "hull". The one on the left holds four smaller compartments for storage of small items.
The compartment on the right side holds the boarding ramp. Here is the ramp folded up.
The ramp folded down for leaving/ boarding the ship.
Cockpit... or cockpits. It seats two minifigs.
Each windsheild opens and closes seperatly, and also is a method of leaving the ship, but the ramp is preferred.
Top view of interior.
Front weapons rack. The pole is for hanging helmets.
Beds for when traveling long-distance.
Rear weapons rack.
One of my favorite features; the smuggler's compartment. I just couldn't get a good angle on it so ill show you a bunch of pics. The compartment is 5 studs deep so you can pile a lot of stuff in it. It can also fit a minifig, in case Blue Shadow captures his bounty, he can lock him up in the smuggler's pit.
It can fit weapons...
and it can fit a minifig and close properly.
Controls to open/close ramp.
My favorite feature of the ship; the hyperdrive. Sorry about all the reflections and lighting.
Hyperdrive by itself.
Back of the hyperdrive. Nothing fancy since this part is up against the wall.
The cockpit from behind, to show you the controls.
Some random decal I found and decided to add on.
This is by far my best MOC, so I appreciate every comment. I will read all of them, and most of the time I will comment back on one of your creations, so PLEASE RATE AND COMMMENT!!
It is the second time I tell you that- you should comment on the 3 MOCs above you when you post a link in the MOC Promoting topic in the TFOL group. I deleted your link, repost it after commenting on Freeling's, Flare's and Private Henderson's creations.
This is such an awesome ship! Well done. Take off the droid though. I can understand its role in the story but on a ship that sise, the auto pilot would probably be inside somwhere. Loving the colors too!
Great ship! Nice color scheme, and awesome details! (You're right, that smugglers compartment could easily fit two, three bodies...) It looks solid, and by that I mean it could crush one of my ships or ricepods just by flying into it. :P
