It's a spaceship, damn it, not a prom limousine!
About this creation
Seat belts to maximum buckling!

There are some wonderful Futurama MOCs out there, but I've never seen a minifigure-compatible Planet Express Ship before - so I had to change that! Between the color scheme and the ship's round shape, I found out Planet Express Ship is very difficult to make in Lego at this scale. I'm not 100% satisfied with the shaping, but I think it came out pretty good for a first draft. I'm still trying to figure out how to include the boarding ramp on the bottom of the ship, so any pictures I'll be posting will be of "in-flight" mode. The ship includes:

-Opening detailed cabin with space for the intrepid Planet Express crew
-Laser cannon turret - for battling evil Omicronians, or maybe the equally nefarious Yarn People of Nylar 4
-Opening ventral cargo bay - Planet Express does almost ten deliveries per year after all!
-Opening side hatch

More pics coming as soon as I get them rendered!

Quoting Eric Landreneau Aces! A lovely first draft. I think you'll need to make it bigger to fit the features you've outlined. Can't wait to see the result!
Thanks a lot! Actually the ship already has all the features I listed just the way it is (except the boarding ramp). I'll try to get some new pics up soon to show them.

Quoting Allan Hall nice job, as a rama fan it's great to see a build from the show, and especially one that looks so good.
Thanks, glad I pleased a fan of the show!

Quoting Vladimir van Hoek Awesome, I love Futurama! You are very brave to even attempt this MOC, but do a pretty good job of it!
Thank you, it was pretty difficult but I'd love to see more Futurama minifig-scale sets, so I figured it had to start somewhere!

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 even if I m not familiar enough with futurama to recall this ship, it looks great, it has cool shapes and a very attractive overall look, the colors seems unusual though, have you 'shopped' them?
Thanks! No, these colors are just part of the basic LDD palette, and not totally accurate to the ship's color on the show. Pretty close though

Quoting Matt Bace I've only seen Futurama a few times, but that is enough to know that you have done a fantastic job here. I think that the shaping is actually quite good -- you've definitely captured that somewhat unique Futurama style.
Thanks very much, I'm glad you like it - it was no easy task, it definitely is a unique ship

Quoting clayton Marchetti This is so awesome! You got the shape perfect. I love the clear doom on top. Are you going to make the figs? Excellent
Thanks a lot! I wish I could make the figs, but custom renderings of figs isn't my specialty - I wish though! The ship needs her crew after all
