The Shell Galacian, one of several tankers carrying petroleum from the legendary Oil Asteroids of Alpha Sigma B. It also carries crew for restaffing the Oil Platforms. Humanity: terra-forming through greenhouse effect, one planet at a time!
Yep. Oil Asteroids of Alpha Sigma B. Imagine a world where oil producing bacteria go out of control, making entire oceans of oil for millions of years. Then an unlucky meteorite or comet impact smashes the planet to bits, and there you go: oil asteriods.
Or you could try to figure out a better reason for an oil tanker in space!
Current Status: Dissembled
I should point out this is microscale, as some people don;t seem to realize, then rate it very badly because it doesn't fit a mini-figure - MOC pages can be weird!
nice backstory too:p
only a little disappointed by the underside (specially in the front)
upside down snot would have worked great there i guess..also the control tower/deck seems oversized compared to the tanker volume. if a planet was full of oil, there's plenty of oil to haul around;p
great job anyway
I might've misread it, but bacteria don't produce oil. When organic things die, get buried under something, and extremely high pressure is put on, over millions of years oil, or coal, will be produced. Anyways, nice ship.
