This Moc took three days. I built it using parts from the Star Destroyer set and my own parts.
The YT-1600 Light Freighter is a small cargo ship built by the Corellian Engineering Corporation. It is a evoultion of the YT-1300 Light Freighter. The craft is smaller than the older 1600 model but has approximately the same cargo capacity. The ship consists of two decks. The main deck houses four cargo bays, the hyperdrive and sublight engines, the boarding ramp and weapon systems. The upper deck houses the cockpit, mess hall and a single bunkroom. This particular YT-1600 has been heavily modified by the smuggler Kyle Ceran. A quad CAC AG-4G laser cannon has been installed, along with a stolen Imperial light ion cannon. The ship also is equipped with two forward proton torpedo launchers each with a magazine of 15 torpedoes.
It is 90 studs long, 58 studs wide and 28 studs tall.
About this creation
The command deck has a pilot and copilot chair, bench seating for passengers and a fold out bunk which can double as a table.
The viewports offer limited forward and side views of space. Most navigation is done using an advanced holographic interface.

This view shows the bridge (center) the quad laser cannon (left) and the radar dish (right) It also shows the recessed hull detail.
This view shows a perspective view of the dorsal front hull.
The powerful quad turbo lasers are more than capable of destroying fighter craft.
The stolen Old Republic radar dish has enough range to allow the ship to track most civilian vessels while staying out of range of their sensors.
The aft view shows the powerful sublight engines and the E-tech 600 series hex-power converter system which supplies power to the hyper drive, weapons, life support and sensors.
This is my most highly detailed model to date.
It is also my most massive.
The ventral ion cannon has a 360 field of fire and is powerful enough to be used to disable even medium commercial freighters and gunboats.
The boarding ramp leads up into the cargo hold and to the elevator.

Locating the cockpit in the center of the ship instead of on the side means that the ship needs to produce a smaller shield bubble. This saves energy and improves the effectiveness of the shields.
The ship is slightly smaller than YT-1600.
The engine power converters are vital to supplying the rest of the ship with electric power.
The loading deck automatically interfaces with many space station loading ramps and ports to allow quick loading and unloading of cargo.
Parts of the hull plating have been removed to allow easy accesses to non vulnerable systems.
The radar dish is huge, over 10 feet tall in scale. It rotates 360 degrees and moves up and down.
The quad laser cannon is more accurate when controlled from the gunner seat as opposed to when is computer controlled from the bridge.
The engines have thrust vector control.
The ships powerful sub light engines give it incredible speed. However their center mounting means that the ship is less maneuverable than some freighters with side mounted engines.

The boarding hatch really opens and closes flush with the hull to allow mini figures access. If mini figures could walk that is…
The ship is very reminiscent of the Millennium Falcon, but it is smaller and was built with parts from the Imperial Star Destroyer Lego set (cost $200)
The loading dock is where most cargo is brought aboard.

Cool! But I've gotta admit, it looks a lot like you copied the falcon.
That was kinda the point. Did you read the description? It would be the next ship in the series. I dont have any Falcon sets though,so I just looked at pictures of the $500 official lego set and used parts from the Star Destroyer set.
Three days? Dang, that would have been months of work for me. First thing, what everyone here has said about awesome details, ditto here. The intricate details just make this thing mind blowing. And, this ship has two decks? I gotta see that. Multiple decks are challenging, and this ship is smooth and it is hard to tell whether there are two decks. Also, if you put as much love into the interior as you did the exterior, then this thing needs ten smiley faces rather than five -- but I gots to see it! (if it still exists)
Really great work on this one. It's massive and yet very detailed. I admire people who pulls off such big MoCs and manage to keep them conceptual. I love your detailed descriptions and explanations to every picture, I wish I had the same ability. You're definately one of my fav builders!
hey, great moc! i got the windshield for my pelican from one of those arctic sets from a few years back (it came with the snow plow set), and then i hand painted it...so if you want one, thats what you gottan do
WOW! Thats awsome! There are so much details to see! The quad laser cannon is cool, but I'm wondering where the cockpit is. Is it in the middle of the ship? Excellent job on this! You really should make the Outrider! That would be great!
