The C.N.S.C.S. (Colonial Naval Star Corps Ship) Auburn was commissioned in 2559. It is a Sienna Class Armed Scout Corvette, armed with twin Flamecoil quad laser cannons, two double missile racks, and multiple smaller weapons. It can carry three ASF-34 Hornet fighters, and has a crew of 14, including the pilots.
This is my first large minifigure scale ship. She's 136 studs long, 39 bricks high, and 48 studs wide. It only took me six days to build, and completely exhausted my supply of plates and bricks. I used baseplates for the bottom, something I never thought of until I saw many ships on MOCpages that use them, namely Dan Jassim's ships (Like the Gibraltar, which is awesome).
Profile shot. Note the big quad cannons, and the greebling around the different levels. I've never been too good at greebling, but I tried with this ship.
One of the four micro guidance jets positioned at all corners of the Auburn. Each can turn 360 degrees and flip up 90 degrees.
One of the two missile racks.
One of the two quad turrets. These took me the longest to build, because I came up with a new way for them to elevate. I've never liked the hinged brick method, because that made the whole turret lift up. See the Quad turret page for how this works.
Poor Hanger Tech Marty always got stuck with fleebnork duty. The triple-barreled plasma torch is the only redeeming quality of the whole duty.
Here's the top of the Auburn. You can see the two rear projections with dual lasers at the end.
The ever-present, ever-voracious, ever-pesky fleebnork.
Here's the interior of the bridge, with the Captain, pilot, first officer, comm tech, and gunnery officer.
Deck 2, with the airlocks and the ship's infirmary. The tall thing near the bed is either an IV or some sort of fiendish hypodermic needle. The big hole in the floor is the way between levels. As I was too lazy (and short on bricks) to make a ladder system or elevator, it is simply a shaft with no artificial gravity, so you can float between levels.
Here's the detail of the airlock opening.
Deck three, home of the galley, men and women's bunk room, and the captain's quarters.
Here's the ship's small galley, enough to seat four people.
The captain's quarters. Not big too big, but they are private. Sort of.
One of the two droids on the ship. They're MaintenanceRobot(MR)-2s, and they're specially designed to be able to easily navigate the ship and help the crew members interface with the ship's systems.
This is how they plug into the ship's systems through the computer terminals. Rather simplistic.
One of the ship's five repair bots, working on an external power conduit.
And the largest level on the ship, the hanger.
These are the engine controls, and the two Engineering Technicians on board.
A charging rack for the repair bots.
The three ASF-34 Hornets. I wish I could have done them all in the white-light bley color scheme, but I didn't have enough pieces.
Refueling after a patrol. There's two of these refueling ports in the hanger.
The mechanic's corner, with one fixing a cannon from the ASF-34
And here's the entire crew of the C.N.S.C.S. Auburn, standing before the three ASF-34s.
Very good! Building at this scale is quite a pickle, but you managed to make a fully detailed cruiser very nicely! One things is really annoying though, there are BURPs in the hangar bay... Butthe bridge and other interiors are splendid!
This is awesome, i'm slightly envious, its a lot better than my battlecruiser andromeda, even though they would basically be the same size. And the bridge is in the same place!!
Any way your ship RULES!!!!
