Marauder Corvette used during the Galactic Civil War by the Rebel Alliance (turbolaser variant)
About this creation








































This is a Rebel Alliance Marauder Corvette used in the Galactic Civil War and featured in the game Star Wars: Empire at War. It was developed for the Old Republic by Seinar Fleet Systems and equipped with eight turbolasers. It was never widely used but they were employed heavily by the Rebel Alliance in the Galactic Civil War. The Rebel Alliance variant had four concussion missle launchers and was adept at destroying Imperial TIE fighters. It was the 'missle cruiser' for the Rebels in the PC game Star Wars: Empire at War.

I came up with the idea to build the Marauder when i had decided i wanted to build something BIG. Something UCS BIG. I looked all over the web for spaceships that hadn't been build on a large scale out of lego. Two that i knew, the Broadside and Marauder corvettes from EAW stuck out to me. I wanted to do the Broadside but then switched to the Marauder as the Broadside was a bit too complex to create out of Lego. The Marauder I made was used, in my history for it, just after the Empire's rise to power, explaining its Rebel crew but Republic variant. (Turbolasers.)

To build this, it took the last of my available roof tiles, of which there is already a scarcity in my lego 'scrap heap,' many, many rockers and side studs and also many sizes of nose cones. Oh and I also used all ten of my red 8X16 baseplates...

The Marauder I made is slightly modified, it is a cross breed of the two variants. It has two concussion missle launchers in between the sensors nodes in front of the cockpit (the small ones,) six turbolasers and three laser-cannon turrets. The turrets are all mounted on the hull and four of the turbolasers on the wings. The other two turbolasers are on the hull behind the cockpit hallway. It's hyperdrive engines are also housed on the wings. I made the cockpit big enough for two pilots, and then there are two astro droids, two escape pods, and four rebel pilot troopers. The captain is in the cockpit in the red pilot suit.

I am very, very pleased with this MOC and it is by FAR my favorite. I may make a version two with some improvements, if i can aquire some more roof tiles... If you want instructions I might be able to help, though they will probably be vague.

Don't think I've seen any other Mocs like this, and that's why I like it.

Hey this is a very neat Marauder Corvette. So glad someone finally went for it. I like the cockpit area and gun hard points a lot. The colors are well placed too. Not sure I could suggest anything except for some more interior detailing and photos. Keep up the good work!

thanks very much guys, i agree with you all, the top needs more work and the back IS blocky, unfortunately I have zip roof tiles leftover, i wish i could add those details though. I'm considering buying some more from the digital designer or the lego shop nearby (1/2 hour drive) though The only mega blocks i used were those cockpits, i dont know why that makes the whole thing deserve a one...

Yeah, it's a corvette, not a cruiser. Corvettes are a step up from fighters. Cruisers are much, much bigger ships. Excellent job on the interior though, I really like how you made the escape pods and escape shaft.
