The pictures of some of my creations included in my last entry sparked some interest. So, the following are some more pictures of the large space ship I created back in high school (10 years agon now, wow!). What is funny is that I could never come up for a name for this thing, to this day I think of it as "the big ship"; no name I could come up with ever seemed right. Any suggestions?
Length: 5.1 feet long
Width: 3.1 feet at widest point
Average Width: 1.5 feet
Height: 2.25 feet at talles point
Some "Big Picture" shots:
|I had always wanted to build something big enough that it|
could include a monorail. This was it.
|This picture was actually taken from on my roof looking through|
the window. Model was too big to move.
|This front part housed the hanger, labs, bridge and officer's cabins.|
|This middle section was crew quarters (the yellow section) and|
The following pictures show how the model opened so that you could access the inside. My goal was to make it 100% playable (a requirement for all my MOCs) which meant 100% access. I succeeded.
|This shows everything opened and all the removable floors removed.|
|The crew quarters.|
|The hallway, the crew quarters were accessed via hatches in the floor|
(you can see the red in the floor, those are them)
|You can see the monorail dock and the rear access door here|
|The hanger, it was so big I could (and did) stick my head in it.|
|The engine room with the reactor front and center.|
|The mechanical room.|
|The first floor of the medical wing. The hatch to the right accessed the |
mechanical room and crew quarters.
|Top floor of medical wing. This was before sites like bricklink so I had to use |
printed tiles for lack of plain ones.
|Inside view of the hall looking from the front to the rear of the ship.|
|Crew quarters, 3 stories tall, sleeping was on the left and workout room|
was on the right.
|Officers quarters off the bridge.|
|The bridge and stairwell to the officer's cabins.|
A couple of final shots.
