Regent
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 sides of Regent were the largest recycled sections from Gibraltar. The wings got a extended by a few bricks and I added reverse thrusters in front.

   A rear view showing the propulsion systems. The reactor vent in back was particularly greebly. The "V" tail in the back would later appear on the Dragonstar.

   A head on view of the business end--the forward torpedo launcher.

   A shot of Regent with one of Gibraltar's fighters for scale.



Enlarge image
   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.

   This shot is just aft of the conning tower on the starboard side. I threw in the minifigs for scale. Note the same escape pods as Gibraltar.



Enlarge image
   The port side of the conning tower features the ship's antennae array. Note the Classic space wall panels/vents (in light gray). These would later be featured on Dragonstar.

   The main engine. On future ships, I would use trans bricks as opposed to solid colored.



Enlarge image
   A quad-cannon from Gibraltar with minifig for scale. The one thing I didn't like about that design was the way the whole unit tilted up or down, rather than just the barrels.

   Elwood "Sparky" Farnsworth, always spacewalking too close to the reactor vent.

   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.

absolutely amazing, very nice your ship has become. The colors and shape are stunning, it looks so easy like you think the ship. But with the many details I can not imagine that it is so easy for me.

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

Wow, a truly beautiful job. Your level of detail is stunning, and your other ship which was scrapped is amazing as well. One of my favorite parts of this model is the bridge, it fits perfectly!

the pic of you holding it is questionable, it looks somewhat shopped. and if it is, your a good photoshopper.

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.

5/5 nicely done btw have you ever made or considered to make a "building station" kinda like a drydock station from star trek for your uncompleted ships?

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.
