This was built by trying to find something to do with the white snowslopes from set 3585. After much random positioning, I started working on a way to get them to connect bottom to bottom. This was easy enough, but trying to work this into a reasonable floor plan was a bit trickier. Instead of trying to get the connection out of the way, I decided to use them as engine conduits. This worked very well and lent itself to the story of the ship itself.
I initially wanted to have the ship be long and sleek and gracefully gliding down to a fine point following the lines of the slopes. That seemed like a good idea for awhile, but I decided to defy convention and snub the nose as much as I possibly could. I must say that I still think it is still very sleek and graceful-looking.
