About this creation
Hello
Here's My take on the famous Marathon-Class cruiser- UNSC "In Your Face". I tried to stay true to the original design, but had I more bricks I would improve few more things. This creation features 18 Point defense guns, including four oversized turrets on top, and 2 at the front. I wasn't sure where the archer pods were on the orignal, so I've put them on top and above the bridge (Sloped Grills ;)). Originally there should be 24 Longsword fighters aboard, But I could only fit 4. Maybe in the future I'll rework it a bit so that it could hold more. Below the Longsword hangars (notice the rotating hangar gates;)), are escape pods (Round plate 1x1). In this scale normal Bumblebee pod would be 1/2 of a stud, so those pods are able to hold 18 people each. It's 16 pods overall, so a total of 288 crewmen can escape. There are two additional escape pods, below the bridge, so that the most important part of the crew could easily escape. As for the back, I really wanted to use those 2x2 transparent dishes, on the auxiliary engines, but unfortunately- I don't have any. Oh yeah, one more thing- those levers that are on the sides are not Lego- they're COBI, not that it makes any difference:D






Stripped down View- It is really easy to dismantle and modify the ship.

"Archer Pods"

Here's my heavy frigate for comparison

The oversized Point Defense Guns


The round 1x1 light grey plates are escape pods


Here's where the Longswords are. There are two more on the other side. I could fit more but was to lazy to rebuild that part. The hangar gates are opening by rotating.







The three photos above are the V1 photos. The one presented right now is actually V3. You can see that the original design has been greatly improved;)

Quoting Perry B. Nice looking ship, but I'm missing a picture of the side.
I knew something was missing on this page. I've added the sideview pictures now.
