Starship Paladin
I got bored and then the LEGO finger started to itch again, so I started building. I always like to revisit a past MOC and remodel it. This time I redid the Guardian. Because of time shortage I ignored the interior and tried to focus mainly on the shape of the ship. Ohh, and to make it as Studless as possible. I tried to avoid it, but ol grey is almost impossible to get now on Bricklink. Hence the mixing of grey and bley.
About this creation
BACKGROUND: The Guardian performed it's combat tasks very well. So Fleet asked for a dedicated combat version without the transport option. This resulted in the Paladin.

The Paladin uses lots of SNOT. It's almost 60-75% symmetrical left-right and top-bottom.

The most common critique I got for the Guardian was the lack of a beautifull behind. I hope that's remedied in this version.



















As a Macross/Robotech fan, I just needed to have one of these. Hatch opening revealing tons of mini-missiles.

Beautiful. Its seems like an improvement from the last one you built, but I would still like to see some interior not saying I could build this. Cause I couldn't.

Quoting søren johansen Just took a close look at the pictures. The top and bottom seems very similar in the slope design, so you didn't use inverted slopes for the bottom right? Maybe bricks with studs on the sides were used? Just curious to ask since I love the sleek design. Great work.
That's correct, not a single inverted slope was used. Through the use of hinge-plates I managed to make a spinal core along the whole length of the ship that has studs facing up and down. This enabled me to make a virtually identical top and bottom from the end till midship. Only differences are the radar-ish thingy on top, the landing gear setup at the bottom and some minor greebling.

Very nice design! It must have taken a long time to build... have you ever thought about entering it into the Brickfair or other LEGO event?

Excellent job! Believe it or not, I had an idea for a very similar shape, name, and color ship. I do believe I should get credit here for you reading my mind! LMAO Just kidding, we all know you nailed it way better than I ever could! :P

Dang! All the extra work with the hatches and hidden things is really well thought out. Adds extra points to an already sweet ship.
