The Regent is an attack cruiser in the Space Force fleet
About this creation
A funny thing happened on the way to the scrap heap when I was painfully taking apart Gibraltar in early fall 2001. I had the sudden inspiration to whip together an attack cruiser, sort of "Gibraltar Lite." So after much recycling, Starship Regent joined the Spaceforce fleet.
This ship was built on the fly and didn't open up or have any interior details. I built it to fit in with the fleet at the time, like an escort cruiser for Gibraltar. The basic design would resurface with Dragonstar.
The conning tower from the starboard side, complete with the airlock from Gibraltar. I made the Regent's bridge 4 studs narrower and 6 studs shorter than Gibraltar's so that it wouldn't look so oversized.
The ventral cannon. This was my first attempt at building a detailed underside for a cap ship. My previous ships couldn't feature details because I used baseplates underneath. When I redesigned Dragonstar, I abandoned baseplates for a fully detailed underside.
Great job, seems quite professional. I love trunk segmentation design also as Classic Space colour composition. I would like to see some pictures from interior, if I may. I wonder how you such a huge ship hold together. I use vertical beams and layer of frame bricks to compress hull of ship. Cannons are very beautiful work also. I hope you have enough bricks to not need to scrap such creation. Hold on :D
Nice work. It is interesting to see how large ships have developed even in the last 10 years. I build in much the same style as you (see my Enterprise carrier and Firefly class cargo ship) but I have been trying to learn from the likes of M Kelso to build more interesting shapes.
Very nice probably my second favorite after the Dragonstar. btw i feel the quad guns are perfect for that ship. escort ships and frigates are meant for taking on fighters and lighter capitol ships, such as a pirate might acquire and the quad guns come across as that sort of weapon to me.
i hope you don't mind, but i have "borrowed" your Airlock Design for my Next(3rd ever, first on my new site) big thing.
lol, i think i have already commented on this a Shadowscorp (a long time ago in a bedroom not so far away)
OMFG!!!! just like all of your other ships this one is brilliant. I especially love the overall shape of it (mostly because it is completly different from my ships) bravo! any chance you could email me some tips andor tricks? please?
OK Great ship,Sort of a "attack Cruiser"
What are the round things at the front?
They look like Droid Fighters.
And if you could e-mail me with some tips for Making Mini-fig scale Cap ships that would be great!
