Sebeus 1
The spaceship I've been working on for so long.
About this creation

The Sebeus 1 was named after a builder I have great respect for and highly admire, Sebeus I.

What is the Sebeus 1 anyway you might ask? If you thought "space container" you were almost correct. It is, in fact, a space equivalent to a camper van! It was made from a salvaged "Classic Space Industries" cargo container (the big boxy red part), to which a cockpit and an engine were attached, and the inside was tidied up too - we'll get to that in a bit.

The right side of the ship. The added life support and gravity generating technology is visible on the outside in the form of greebles, since noone really cared to add a plate over it. It looks cooler this way anyway.


The ship up front. Three large windows were installed on the front plate as well as a tiny mast on the top, above the second hatch and engine.


Top down view. You can see the large number 1 spelled out on the roof. It's also worth noticing how the white engine+cockpit part wraps around the red housing module.


Left side. Features the cockpit (sideways) and the "micro nuclear powerplant" manufactured by the "Cheap & Cheaper Technologies". It's the part with the danger sign. Behind it is the access cover and the main engine.



The rear. The powerplant access hatch is seen together with both ion engines. The top one is a lot smaller and is used mainly for maneuvering.








The communication array in all it's glory. Falls apart easily.


The big 1 on the roof along with more greebles and the second access hatch. Since it lacks an airlock, it's useless in space, but I guess it helps if you park your ship in a really tight area and can't get out through the normal boarding hatch.


The cover of the nuclear generator space.


The nuclear generator itself - a clusterduck of wires, tubes and UZrH fuel. Best to be left alone for own safety.


Finally, the cockpit! Pretty standard, except for the fact the pilot lacks vision of the entire right section. Luckily, a set of parking cameras was installed.


There's a set of gauges and a sonar (for all the space submarines) on the wall, so the pilot can monitor heat levels of the engines and generator (and space submarines).




The boarding hatch cover. Inside is a boarding ramp that unfolds


Like here!




finally, we got to the inside!
It's the main point this was built. I wanted to make a ship that fits a standing minifig that can also live there. So here we go: on the left is the tech section and on the right are the living quarters.


The living section:
Features an armchair in the front part with a monitor that opens from the wall.


As seen here, Eris the travelling spaceman is chilling in his armchair, working on his laptop while checking the... the satellite trajectory? I think it's time I get myself a sticker machine.




The living half of the ship also has a small kitchen with a stove, a minifridge and a "Brewtron 3000" coffee machine. Next to the kitchen is a Bosch Automatic cleaning and disinfection unit. Automatic as in "turns on by itself but never works when you want it to".




The tech side! has all the controls Eris needs to keep this baby running, and then some. from right to left: The life support controls and information screens (and greebles inside the wall), to the left two crates of supplies and a jar of... of.. something. Next is the door to the airlock and boarding hatch and on the rear wall the engine controls


Life support. Evident from the tubes and gauges.


A tiny portable TV, for when the constant oxygen levels on the screens get too boring.


There's also a trashcan full of tools and a severed droid head beside it. Eris picked that up in the shadowland of Kashyyyk and it's been around since.




Airlock door open. Sweet sweet freedom!


Eris working on his laptop again, waiting for those long space days to end. It's kinda meaningless to call them days if you're not orbiting a star, but he likes to think he's still on Earth.
Space days are generally measured by the equation "Time of one rotation around nearest star divided by 365". If you're not orbiting around a star, one day is still 24 hours, but there cannot be any years. If you're orbiting around a planet, a day is one rotation around the planet. The complexity at which space days are calculated makes writing journals very hard for the poor space travelers.


After a long space day, Eris likes to lay back in his reclined armchair with a nice mug of tea.


interior, again. I deliberately mixed old and new gray and new and aged white colours as to portrait the age of the ship and make it look used.


Also, it has really awesome landing gear that I couldn't really take a picture of since turning it upside-down is very risky business.


Eris says hi!

Quoting David Whitaker WOW! - 10/10, I love the attention to detail, it's amazing, the mixture of old and new colours gives it a really nice look - keep up the good work, p.s. thank you for the amazing comment on my yacht, it means a lot to me :)

Crazy curves and stunning SNOT, sort of feel inspired to make my own large bulky space thing with submarine monitors. Really great work, I love the messy greebles, a spaceship can never have too many greebles...

Quoting david drake I'm not sure if it has been said before, as I didn't read everyone else's comments, but let me say in nevertheless, ... Falcon-esque!! Love the asymmetrical design that ignoring aerodynamics opens up. So many little clever design techniques you incorporated into this spacabego, like the shower fixtures, coffee pot, the Lazy-Boy recliner, and man, oh man, that opening hatch is incredible!
Thanks! It's interesting to note that the millenium falcon didn't pop into my mind at all while I was building it. And yeah, if you throw aerodynamics out of the door the ships get a lot more interesting ;)

I like the boxy look of this spaceship, with aerodynamic pretensions at all. The mix of colours gives it that worn, used look that you wanted but you've used them carefully and it isn't a jumbled mess. I think that that is a very difficult thing to do.

Quoting Steven Taylor Hi Alex Sonny :D ... This ship belongs in an episode of Futurama, the style is really cool. It looks great! Eris must have a great view through those windows when drinking his tea. Shame about the dodgy shower not working ;(. The whole space on the inside is interesting. I found myself imagining what Eris would be doing in that space, similar to a 'Mighty Max' playset. Seeing that the opening style of the door is quite stylish, Eris might one day be tempted to play with it and get sucked out into space - along with all the contents he collected from his journeys. It's an inspiring build!! :)
thank you for the wonderful comment!! I am thinking of including Eris into all my future space builds.

Nice spaceship. I love the idea of having a spaceship that you can live in, it's like having a house and... space submarine... all in one! I once made something like this, but it burned up in re-entry before I could take pictures of it. So now, I'm turning my attention from tanks and space ships toward something in between... Anyways, awesome ship, good luck getting that stickers machine!

This ship really you have to look at just to see all the lovely details. The cockpit, the antenna and all the detiails otherwise distributed many all over the ship. The boarding lucke is the hammer ... what a mechanics. The whole acts as cobbled together, but that is intentional, yes. It seems to trade on me like a little private ship. Reminds a bit of Elite. Real cool.

Thanks everyone! To answer in bulk: I do realise it has a lot in common with the Millenium falcon, but that actually wadn't the inspiration for this. And GIFs are something I plan on adding to creations with movable parts, I actually used to do stop-motion too.

Wow this is a magnificent ship. It reminds me of the Millennium Falcon in the few ways such as That Eris won't get rid of the old clunker and he has come to love it's quirks and glitches. Also I hope I wasn't the only one to be a bit surprised when I saw the GIF. You don't see that kind of think often. Really just a beautiful creation. Keep up the amazing work!

I am honored that you have called a spaceship after me, a very nice spaceship for that matter. I haven't seen anything quite like it before but I bet I will see more later as it's pretty inspiring, I also feel the need to make myself one now. You have a special talent with loading ramps. Thanks, I don't often comment these days but I enjoy your creations, keep it up!

Quoting Reaper . Perhaps the only criticism is that there appears to be no way to access the cockpit from the cabin
The chair actually can swiwel out of the way and there's extra space available, but I really didn't bother. Let's just say that if you were a minifig you'd squeeze in one way or another ;)

This is a seriously excellent build. I love the grittiness of the interior, and the hatch mechanism is simply brilliant! The use of contrasting and complementary colours both inside and outside is great. This is a fantastic MOC.

Well, if it's discussion, no. I want each person that comes here to choose whether they like it or not, and like it and/or comment on it. But when a discussion starts, you already like it (since you're talking about it) and there's no need to like it again. liking is about letting the creator know you enjoy his work :D

What a unique design! You did an amazing job with the greebling on the side. I like the look of this vessel and how the interior looks cozy. A ship with couch, coffe maker, and a shower is all one needs to travel the stars! The interior is really cool too. It's full of everything, hahha! Plus that air-lock door is brilliant! Keep on Brickin!
