The Battleship Orion . . FINALLY! So I have been at this for the past two months. I generally build after my family has gone to bed, and thatís if my odd work hours donít get in the way, so a build of this size takes that much more time. And Iím sure that many of you can relate to spending a large amount of time building a part of your ship and finding that it doesnít work right with the rest of the ship so you have to tear it back down. Yeah. There was a bit of that, too. But, I can say with no small amount of satisfaction, that it is finished. I have taken pictures in two different types of lighting, so that will explain why some look different than others. I liked how a lot of them turned out, and I couldn't decide which not to include, so I included them all. This work was inspired by, (no surprise here), Star Wars. I love how all of the ships have such intricate textures, so I wanted to bring that to this MOC. You may also notice some touches of the Frigate Redemption in the underside of the front section. Okay, so I donít do dedications. I donít think Iím to the point in my skills where I can make dedications, but I do want to thank David Alexander Smith for inviting me into his micro group which was my main motivator for building this. I donít think I would have attempted this without that gesture. But enough talk. Without further ado, I present, The Battleship Orion. I thought this was a nice dramatic shot. A look at the length. It's about 70 studs long, if I counted right. If not, about 22.5 inches. I know that it doesn't technically qualify as a SHIP. But I'm going to call it that anyway..."Somewhat Huge Investment of Parts?" What do you think? These are the docking bays. I'm calling this a micro build, though I don't think I can build something in a small enough scale to fit in those. Some of the weaponry. There are three different sizes of cannons on this ship, to accomodate all comers. A look at the middle of the ship. I imagine that this is a sort of breezeway that leads to the front portion of the ship. A look at the underside of this ship. The underside from front to rear may be my favorite part of the build. Please try to ignore the stands. I usually try to make the stands an aesthetic part of the build, I just didn't have the pieces for it this time. A look at the largest guns on the ship. I originally wanted one, much bigger gun, but I liked this design better. I built the larger gun...then tore it apart. One of those situations I mentioned earlier. This is the rear portion of the ship. I like how the hinge work turned out along the sides here. The main command deck. After this, there are a few shots that are just some dramatic looks at some of the parts of this build. The rear of the ship. I like how the thrusters turned out on this one. A couple parting shots. Thanks for looking. Tell me what you think.
