Dark Augusto Armageddon-class Mother Ship
I've got good and bad news for you. I'll start with the good news. My SHIP is finally done! Now for the bad news. It's not actually finished. Now, before you give yourself a headache trying to figure that one out, let me explain. I've been working on this thing for three month now and you start getting really sick of looking at it after a while (now I know how you married guys feel). I've also spent WAY too much on it already and if I finished it, I would still need to spend another two or three hundred bucks on tiles to finish it! On top of all that, every time I look at it I think of something I could use this part or that part for. It was driving me up the wall! Anyway, I finished as much as I could with the parts I had.
About this creation





Bridge.






This is an Anti-Matter cannon. It is almost identical to the one found on the DA-70 Apocalypse... except a LOT bigger! The smaller one on the DA-70 is capable of disintegrating a city. The cannon on this can destroy an entire planet. Unfortunately, it takes a tremendous amount of energy to use it, which takes time to gather. So, long story short, it can't be used very often.






Communications array.


This is one of the eight heavy laser turrets on the ship.


Escape pods.






Shield generator and docking bay. There are two generators and two docking bays on the ship(one of each on both sides)


In case the ship is somehow taken down (HAHAHA... keep dreaming!), the bridge disconnects from the rest of the ship. And if something should go wrong with the bridge, it is also equipped with eight escape pods of it's own.






There are six thrusters on the bottom of the ship for movement. They aren't built for speed, so the ship doesn't move very fast. The ship is, however, capable of creating wormholes for traveling long distances.


More thrusters.

In case your wondering, The SHIP is 2'5" in diameter(93 studs) and 8 1/2" tall.


Northern Notes:

I'm pretty disappointed that I could actually finish everything but I guess my eyes where bigger than my wallet/patience/willpower this time. I've already decided that my next project is going to be a nice and big steampunk moc of some sort. I also want to build a new transformer. I'll be starting those as soon as I get this thing torn apart and sorted.

Thanks for taking the time to listen to my ranting and look at my poorly photoshopped pictures. Feel free to whine about how unfinished it is and how I really need to start using color blocking in a comment! Also feel free to rate it if you've got a spare half-second! See you all next time!

WOAH! THIS IS TOTALLY AMAZING! Love every part of it, but this is one of those mocs whereit is big scale, even though it is mini-scale (way too big for figs). If ya know what I mean. Overall, whoever has to fight against this bad boy is totally screwed.

A great SHIP, unfinished or not - a very unusual shape and beautifully greebled! I'm in the same situation - started a SHIP a couple of years ago, got to the point where I could hardly lift it and certainly wasn't happy with how it was going, and it's been sitting on top of a cabinet for about a year. Glad I saw this, you helped me make a decision - it's smashing time :)

Great SHIP but I think what I like most is your honesty! You've helped me in a round-about way. I've got a few MOCs brewing, one in particular, that I need to just call it good enough and post it. Such is the struggle of a lazy, impatient, broke perfectionist! The peices surrounding the thursters are great, I like the curves in there.

That is one moth@r of a ship. Too bad you couldn't finish it, or it might have been something. ;^} (since I don't know you yet, I'll emphasize that was definitely a joke). And, BTW, us married guys deeply appreciate sympathy from young bloods like you. ;^} Get the he[] outta here and go buy another 20,000 LBLEY parts. It's your destiny, young blood.

Quoting Crazy Russ The 3rd Wow, that is superb. Very nice design and greebling. I am just wondering, how strong is the design? Did you cross-brace it or does it just have a strong central design?
It's kind of hard to explain how everything is held together, but the gist of it is, All the panels are held on with a lot of clips and technic braces. They are very fragile though. I must have broken them at least a hundred times.

  February 17, 2011
Quoting Anubis . Awesome build, you are added to my favorite. Love the starwarish design A have a question thou, how did you attach the pieces that make up the thrusters?
The thrusters are on there own separate panels. Those panels are held in place with a couple brackets and heap of gravity.

Quoting Zane Houston Wow, this is amazing! the inset greebles are great, I especially love the thrusters on bottom. However, just for the record a "SHIP" is typically regarded as at least 100 studs in length, but that's just my OCD getting the best of me. Anyways... great job!! I hope you do more stuff like this in the future
Yes, a SHIP is usually 100 studs or greater. BUT, considering this thing used up pretty much my entire collection plus all the parts I ordered for it, I figured it would fit into the SHIP category.

Quoting Jonathan Ladner That gun looks a liiittle small to destroy a planet, and isnt that over powered? Couldnt they just slowly move on planet to planet destoying lif because thats their purpose? And why would robots need escape pods? :P I mean their massed produced robots, theres got to be a million more of em. Other than that awesome ship! :D
Anti-matter is really potent stuff (look it up some day). As for the escape pods, Why do the separatists need escape pods? If this puppy got shot down you'd be losing a lot of troops. On top of that, the DA home world is quite a long way from the battle field. It would take a long time to get more troops to the field.

Quoting Master Shifu Leo J What do you mean it's not finished?!?!? Were you gonna populate the top side with pole dancing girls?!?!
Of coarse! What mother ship is truly complete without a generous population of pole dancers?

Quoting Danny Morgan Scary, dark, imposing, this thing is a monstrosity. Was it inspired by the big ship in District 9?
Actually, this was inspired by the train tracks that I have collecting dust in my collection. I figured it was time to do something with them.

  February 17, 2011
Quoting Wes Pitter I'm not seeing that nice picture of the bottom-side your WIP post had. I guess it's okay, since I've already seen it...Very impressive. I tried a SHIP recently but I couldn't seem to get that project off the ground (har-har). Maybe someday it'll happen, and then I can say you've inspired me.
After adding all the top panels, it made it pretty much impossible to flip over to take shots of the bottom. There wasn't anything different or even interesting down there anyway :)

I LOVE IT! Even if it's not finished, I like how it isn't. My point is, how you have those openings that go down, with the comms array, hangars, shield generators, etc. It looks epic. The thrusters are cool, the birdge looks like an amazing ship when it's detached, And the dark matter cannon is SPOT. ON. I love it!

Despite being unfinished, I have to say, that is one great-looking ship! I especially like the ufoish shape to the ship.

How dare you post such an unfinished piece of schlock on these hallowed pages! You you should be ashamed of yourself. Now get back in there and spend the next six no eight months getting all the details just perfect. Kidding, really! Don't shoot me with that anti-matter cannon! Despite your personal feelings this is an outstanding work in its current state and is still far superior to what most people currently post around here, including myself. So put it to rest, engage in whatever debauchery drowns your sorrows and begin your next masterpiece. Your loyal fans await.

Wow, you certainly don't see capital ships like this every day, let alone ones that are not only disc-shaped but also made so well, that are also SHIPs, AND capital class and yet also, strangely enough, micro-scale. If you think that THIS would be a SHIP, then you have to imagine just how much that a LEGO minifig-sized version of this vessel would be in terms of a SHIP! Anyway, it's a nice job and rarely has a creation that is microscale, a SHIP, and capital class sized...wait, it's the only MOC that I've seen that is all of those things...well, anyway, it's just plain impressive and I hope that you get the parts that you need. By the way, Craigslist, swap meets, garage sales, flea markets, and yard sales are your best friends if you want some good deals with LEGO, in case you need some more parts, anyway. In fact, I'm going on Craigslist to check out some deals with LEGO today myself.

LOLWUT? Have humans decided to go retro alien UFO now? Anyway, great build, definitely unique, although I have spotted a flaw; what if the bridge gets asploded first? It'd be the Executor all over again, and that was costly.... XD

Yes a circular ship, finally. This is great in every way and the greebles are well executed. I like the fact that you say it is not finished yet. At that point you could imagine that it is been to combat and it gives a worn out look, or the long travels across the far reaches of space has teared the ship slowly. If you want to stay on circular ships go for the mothership from independence day next time:-) Please check out my creations. The latest ship is having a makeover and is soon finished.

An impressive MOC. I really like the layering of the surfaces. The large differences near the bridge, thinning out to one uniform depth as you work out toward the rim of the circle. But my favorite parts are on the bottom. I really like the work with the macaroni bricks around the engines. Really nice to see the different sizes of curved brick used together like that. Attack!

I know exactly what you mean. A huge MOC can be a burden over time. Losing interest then is very easy. But hey, I've seen finished MOCs that look much more unfinished than your beauty here. And what was that about your photoshop work? Poorly? I don't see why. Take some more pics, show the real thing some more friends and then rip it apart and create something as cool as this one.

Very gorgeous ship. The pics are so great. Even when it's not even finished, it's still great. Tip: If you have only a limited amount of one Lego piece, just create one side, one front and/ or back and a top and you don't have to build the whole thing. In the 1986 flick "Aliens" they built a space ship and showed only the faces that makes the ship look "complete". Take pics of those views you only want to show and the problem is solved easily. If you can visualize the idea you want to display, then that idea counts. I think I'll do that in one of my next creations, and if I'll need a contrary view, i'll apply a few little changes and mirror the whole thing in photoshop. Great work!

I now realize that watching this thing come together on flickr, I've made a severe underestimation of it's epic-ness. This level of detail is truly a tour-de-force, and overall the style and execution are immaculate in their own right. I totally feel your pain on getting tired of a MOC before it's "finished." When you're as detail-obsessed as us, it happens. I've got a model that's been in the works since October and, yes, I despise it. I'm also right there with you on the "too much money down the tube already" feeling. My advice: now that it's up for everyone to gaze upon it's beauty, rip that bad boy down in dramatic fashion--smashing it into a wall, dropping it from high position, so on and so forth. Keep it real, Canadian.
