CHECK OUT MY OTHER MOC'S

***** Please note: a couple of the pictures here were added after the page was initially done (and they were taken with a much clearer camera). Most notably, I gave the ship a quick nose job, which is reflected in the pictures with the squared-off nose. *****

The great loose end of the Star Wars universe - the Sith Infiltrator. Surely it sits somewhere forgotten on Naboo (?). I have seen a few MOC's of this ship, and the common theme seems to be that people were disappointed with the version put out by LEGO. I never bought that set because I felt the same way (nor did I buy the other set that had the Darth Maul minifig). So, now I have built the ship, and I am without a Darth Maul for it. But, then again, that's part of what MOC's are all about. This ship is made mostly from spare parts from old sets and some newer Star Wars sets. A couple of the most recognizeable peices are the large black curved (shell) peices that came from Jango Fett's Slave I. Two of those had been on my Mandalorian ship, but I changed them on that ship to another color to use the black ones on this ship.

I want to call out a couple of things about the way I built this ship. First is that I tapered the end of the nose some instead of leaving it squared-off. I know that's not 'correct', but it really helped the look. Second is the way I built the main compartment. To get it to look the way I wanted, I did what I call "double-decking". I built the foundation of two decks that had studs up on the top (normal), and studs facing down on the bottom (upside down). That way I could build a section for the bottom using peices that would normally only be 'top' peices. I used bricks with holes through them for pins, and pinned them against each other in opposing directions with the pins. Hopefully you can get the idea from the pictures of the bottom.

   Front view from an angle, down low. Ground level view. The front gear folds up nicely into a cool position. You can see what I mean on one of the pics of the bottom.

   Rear view from an angle, down low. The two bright green peices are from the Jedi Starfighter kit, and were a perfect match for the drive section. This angle does a decent job of showing the overall ball shape of the main compartment.

   Bottom detail. Picture came out a little blurry, but again shows some of the double-deck.

Good, but I don't think the front was quite as pointy as that.
