Gibraltar
Gibraltar is the second largest Lego spaceship I've built.
About this creation

Starship Gibraltar in space with accompanying F1 Fighters.


Gibraltar is a starfighter carrier in the Lego Space Force fleet. The model is built to minifigure scale and measures 186 studs long, 88 studs wide (at the wings), and 44 bricks tall. It can carry up to 10 starfighters or other small craft and has a crew of 22. It is the second largest spaceship I've ever built. Although Gibraltar is built similarly to my first carrier, I consider it a vast improvement over the first. It features a greater array of details, inside and out.

Initially, I built the ship before I had the Lego Space Force theme in mind. I just liked the neat Classic Space logo and wanted to use it on my next big ship, not really thinking about how others regarded it. So I inadvertantly went Classic Space on this model but I decided to stick with it and make Lego Space Force a part of my Lego universe. I consulted the Grand Admiral regarding uniforms and ranks so that our universes could overlap.

   Gibraltar was built using large gray baseplates to create the huge flight deck. Although the baseplates greatly limited my design options, I didn't have to use a ton of gray pieces. Ultimately, the shape was very boxy but I didn't mind since this was a carrier.

   The side view gives a good idea of how tall Gibraltar was. Note the bare underside, one of the drawbacks of using the large baseplates.

   This picture shows the breakdown of each section. From the left is the flight deck, then the main deck, the mid-deck and the command deck.



Enlarge image
   The ship had 1 airlock, located on the command deck behind the captain's quarters. This door leads to the airlock.

   The outer door open. Note the captain's quarters on the right (with the captain standing in the window). I used this same outer door design later on Dragonstar.

   The bridge. Seated in the center is the captain. In the foreground is the pilot and navigator. On the far left is flight control and on the far right is weapons.



Enlarge image
   The captain's cozy quarters, located right behind the bridge. I like the placement of the captain's quarters on this ship.



Enlarge image
   A group of crewmen with 1 of the ship's 4 escape pods. Each escape pods can hold up to 6 people.

   An exterior view of the starboard escape pods. Note the crewman at lower right blasting away at pesky, parasitic fleebnorks that cling to the hull and chew on the power couplings.



Enlarge image
   The lead starfighter (because I didn't have the parts to make more than one). Ideally, all of the fighters would look like this.



Enlarge image
   The black fighters were the attack variants armed with torpedos.



Enlarge image
   The gray and red fighters were the stock fighters of the ship. I made 7 from the A-Wings I bought for the first carrier.



Enlarge image
   A somewhat fuzzy view of the ship's galley. Note the robo-chef.

   Crew bunks and lockers along the wall.

   A full view of the interior layout of the main deck. From the left is the galley, then sickbay, the crew quarters, and the bathroom.



Enlarge image
   The officers quarters in the mid-deck (the neck of the bridge tower). Check out the spacious, elegant accomodations!



Enlarge image
   I think I had watched the movie "The Right Stuff" just before I took this picture.

Hey, Daniel, I have a way to add at least some features to the underside of a base plate bottomed capital ship. Here is what you do to make them happen. You simply get a few LEGO bricks to jut out from the sides of the vessel and then get some LEGO plates along the length of those jutted out pieces. After you get a layer or two of plates, you can interlock some more LEGO plates along the bottom and then add things like engines, lifts, etc., along the bottom. It might take a lot of LEGO plates but I believe that is the only way that it can be done with at least some strength. Please let me know what you think of my suggestion, Daniel. Thank you for the comments.

Very nice! Where did you get that many Lego pieces to build that and how much did it cost? I ask because I want to turn my virtual Lego ship into a reality :)

I love it. There are so many details in it that I don't have space to rave about them all. I'll try some, though . . . Lessee. Airlocks! Those are great. The Captain's quarters are also excellent. Escape pods, now those are very cool. I love the crewman on the outside cleaning them off. I also like the torpedo room. Great work! ~Brickfan93

It is the BEST spaceship I've ever seen! And I think you can make it be a very big dropship by removing the aircraft and putting the infantry. And don't forget the troop ramps. Good luck!

This inspires me to make my own ship, even if I don't have a zillion pieces like you do. But unfortunatly I have projects of my own to get done first.

One of my favorites of your ships, Dan! Only the Dragonstar is better. Very nice details, like the hangar equipment and fighters. (gotta love the fighters)
