Sorosuub Byuppo-class light freighter: The Runaway
About this creation
As part of the FBTB MOC Madness 2010 contest, a bounty hunter ship had to be made. While I was one of the last to post my entry onto the forum, I spent the entire month planning and building it. The Runaway is a Sullustan ship designed to be used by Sullustans. As such, our hero Rave had to make some modifications to suit his needs (and size). The pilot's quarters have been refurbished as the prisoner's cell, and he uses the left segment of the ship as his meditation chamber (if you follow my MOCs, he pops up a lot as a Jedi; currently he's trying to hide that fact). Armed with two standard blaster cannons and a specialized ion cannon, The Runaway holds its own in the Dark Times as a force to be reckoned with!









Here's Rave, the Jedi incognito. To hide his previous identity further, he rarely uses his lightsaber, preferring to use twin blaster pistols.










Now, a good project needs some WIP pics, right? These are concept drawings I made.










I started with the hard part (IMO), the cargo bay segment. I used long Technic bricks attached to each other to make a very strong connection to the plates attached to them. Did I mention they're connected?










Now we're getting somewhere. The shield generator on top has stuck with the ship the whole time, and I'm glad it did. As you can (hopefully) see, I used headlight bricks (the kind with the half-plate indentation) to achieve studs on bottom and top, so the floor could be studs up.










You'll see this kind of pic a lot; this is the hallway connecting the two segments, and while the technic pieces stayed with it the whole time, I really just wanted to take a skeleton pic of the overall design to give you readers a sense of what I was envisioning. Between the time this pic was taken to the next WIP photoshoot, I worked solely on it.










Hallway = done! Its design did not change at all after this.










Look! Rave can walk through it!










I also put in lights. Just a little detail.










Landing gear! For the other segment, though; I was going to have to make larger, stronger ones for the cargo segment.










Engines and a floor! Lucky for me I had 4 x 1 tiles and 2 x 1 grills in bulk! The engine room design is based off of the one you see in Battlefront II.










Butt shot! Obligatory.










Landing gear! Again! Using droid torsos, they retract somewhat easily.










I decided that when it came time to take pics of the completed ship, I wouldn't take pics of this again. Too much hassle. Plus it wasn't very stable anyhow...










Almost there! Crucnch time begins. That's when my mind goes into overdrive for ideas. Kind of sad, isn't it?










Looking down the cargo hallway! Tread spam!!










Prisoner cell and engine room. I actually (painstakingly) added four studs of length to the back; too cramped, if you ask me. It put the total stud length of the ship at 42 studs, dangerously close to the limit of 48 studs.










Prelminary pic of the rooster-pit. Like the first hallway pic, it's just to show the skeleton of what I'm building.









--I then spent the final two days before the deadline making the rooster-pit.--








The finished product!










Here's the rooster-pit, with hallway attached.










It has the ability to detach from the main ship, running off of the reserve power generator in the back. Rave's various weapons and macro binoculars are kept on the wall of the meditation chamber.










Here you can see the door! Which slides!!! Undergoing a few mino changes here and there, both ends of the hallway have a sliding door.










One more angle of the ship. Here you can see Rave's pilot seat, based off of the design in Lego Star Wars (the first level).










Rave at the controls. One of the first things completely built for this section of the ship!










The final design for the landing gear of this side of the ship. Again, didn't want to use them, for fear of fragility.










Here's a better pic of the prisoner cell, complete with a Weequay crime boss comtemplating the meaning of life...










And of course, the final butt shot!!









Thanks for reading! Tell me what you think of it.

Quoting Jp ... Nice MOC! It's great to see how you've built some parts of this ship, there are pretty interesting techniques here. I should maybe also do some concept drawing, it might be quite useful! Thanks for the inspiration provided, and keep on building :)
Thanks man, it means a lot to hear that. I'm in a bit of a dark age at the moment; this was a very big undertaking by my standards, and it burnt me out a bit when it was finished. Still, at some point I'll probably fish through my horribly disorganized Legos and get back to building stuff. Thanks again for the encouragement!

Quoting Matthew 'Blue-Wolf' Blanchet This is a great looking ship! I can see you put some time into this, the walkway between the parts of the ship is killer, and the cockpit is a very good use of the new piece! Well built!
Hey thanks! Towards the end of the month I got General Grievous' ship and it provided me with a ton of parts I desperately needed, especially the windscreen.
