Love the angles and curves in this beast! Great job on the interiors, as well. We don't see a lot of ships these days where the interiors are done, and it's always a treat. Gives the MOC a bit less of a "model" feel, and provides all kinds of fun playability elements. Terrific work!

THANK YOU all for such kind comments and for taking the time to make them. I've tried to answer some of the direct questions, and would be happy to answer any others. Please have a look at some of the previous creations (Geminon and Aries are among my personal faves). This was my past winter's project (what else is a Canadian to do)...starting to think what is in store for this winter. Thanks again, all!!!

Quoting David Roberts A superb looking craft. I love all of the curves that you've managed to include in its shape. The pattern of interlocking pieces at the top of the dome is skillfully done and looks very nice too. Do the engines light up with electric lights or is it the light shining through them. It's an impressive effect whatever! It might be worth replacing some of the small photos with bigger ones.
Thanks David. There are indeed electric lights inside (was always part of the original concept) to light the engines. The red in the front of the engines lights up too, but I haven't been able to get a great pic of it. Since you ask the question, how exactly does one get larger pics on here? I've had the same issue with all my creations :(

Quoting El Barto ! Impressive beast! Always great to see these massive minifig scale ships. But can it be swooshed?
El Barto asks the question of the day: can it be swooshed. Yes and No. It is currently "free standing" in that there are only four pillars holding it above my table, so there is some measure of structural integrity. The original design was intended to be swooshable and I did everything I could with my lego supply to build the skeleton to support that goal. The idea was that I wanted to be able to have it sit in my extended arms with the back engines to my chest, and be able to flick fire those torpedos in the front - which is why I left gaps in the bottom big enough for my hands to reach into. The reality is that this thing just became too big to reliably do it. And, after a catastrophe near the end that had me rebuild half of the beast from broken bits on the floor, I've been afraid to try again. When it comes time to disassemble, I will indeed see if it is in fact swooshable, and hopefully weigh it to get an approximate piece count. Anyone have some idea of what that count might be?

Quoting matt rowntRee Yup, that one's a keeper! Outstanding detail with a truly beautiful overall design. The only issue I have with it is that you put a "red shirt" in charge. They're doomed! =] Beyond excellent, you should be quite proud.
Next Gen was my first love, so I'm afraid the uniform color is correct from my perspective ;) I almost left him without a helmet just to get a "bald" captain in command. Thanks for stopping by!

Quoting JS Can Fantastic! Did you come up with an idea for the exterior first and then fit the interior to that or did you have plans for both from the start?
It's a bit of both. I generally start with the skeletal structure that will support what I have in mind for the exterior, and leave lots of spaces for where I know I'm going to want to build specific interiors. In some cases, I have concepts in mind of how I will want those interiors to look, so I'll leave some accomodation for that. Sometimes its fun to see what spaces I am left with and adapt to it!

This is a truly great ship! It's massive for a scout vessel. I love the detail you put into every centimetre of this ship, especially the bridge. The background on that tile pic is very familiar

Absolutely adorably shaped and coloured. I would love larger photos, but on the other hand maybe my eyes would not even handle it then.
