S.H.I.P Work In Progress (Stage 1)
With the new Mars Mission sets out I was inspired to build a quality Mars Mission creation.
About this creation
With the new Mars Mission sets out I was inspired to build a quality Mars Mission creation. After weeks of planning the idea finally came to mind late one night in a hotel room, I should build a Mars Mission SHIP, a first! Not only do I want to build a Mars Mission SHIP I want to strive and build the largest Mars Mission SHIP to date (big dreams for a 12 year-old). I set out to acomplish this daunting task and so far I have this:




The SHIP already measures over a ft. and 1/3 long. I am planning to make this an aircraft carrier of sorts, only it carries spacecraft. The long framework section will be used to hold little snub fighters like this:



I am generally happy with how the snub fighters turned out but my only current complaint is the number of astronauts the craft can hold. For what I have been able to acomplish so far the craft (It also needs a name) can only hold seven astronauts. Four Marines/Pilots, one Combat Engineer, one Pilot, and a Squadron Commander.

If you have any comments or suggestions feel totally free to give me your ideas. Constructive critisism is welcome!

Leg Godt,
Shbagoogly

UPDATE: The frame section has been lengthened. Three more Frame modules were added today. Work will now begin on the engines, I am 90% done in terms of how close I am to the big 100 stud mark! Pictures of the progress will be up soon on a new page. Hasta Lavista, Derek

Oddly enough Shannon, I can barely imagine that as well. But here's our chance! You're off to a good start there, Derek. Here's wishing you luck on hittin' that 100 studs mark. I'll look forward to more updates!

A SHIP being at least 100 studs long, which works out to 31 or 32 inches, I calculate you need to double its current length. Good luck, and keep us posted on the process. I'd love to see what a good Mars Mission ship looks like. I can barely even imagine such a thing...
