The planes are well done, but I think you stretched your collection far too thin with this ship. I think that you would make a much better ship if it were smaller.
I think I originally built this around 4 years ago and, perhaps over-ambitiously, wanted a carrier that was as close to a full size minifigure scale as I had the bricks for - to use in stop motion animations.
Even though I've acquired more experience/bricks since then, I recognise that there are others who are much better equipped to build super-large ships like this.
Matter of interest, in case I try for another Carrier at some point, what do you reckon are the best steps that I could take to improve upon it?

A massive project with lots of interesting details! It is obvious that you gave this vessel a lot of thought. Great work! I especially like the briefing room and the gally. Attack!

Very nicely done! I love the interior. However, I would add a little shape to the hull. It would make it more realistic.
Yeah I agree. I'm hoping to upgrade the carrier subsequently when I get some more bricks (pretty much ran out of various elements during the building process) or else if an when I build an upgraded version.
Really like your idea of the Flying Airport. Hope things go well at the competition :)
