No ship pods
These ships were built some time ago and inspired by prequel era Dune. They are ships which hide anything inside from prescient vision, and itself from more conventional means of detection, like radar scanners. They are mainly used in covert operations.
About this creation
I'm sorry that I haven't been updating more frequently lately. I've been very busy with work. The two SHIPs that I had planned aren't even started on yet. So in the meantime (to show you I'm still alive), I dug up some old MOCs I built about 5 or 6 years ago. I am certain I made more of them, but I can't seem to find the pics. Barbie's pod at the bottom is a bonus recent build. It was a bit of a request from Mark Kelso, who at some point asked if I could do a pink ship.

The no ships and no chambers from the Dune universe have always intrigued me. Here are some wiki 'facts': In the Prelude to Dune prequel trilogy (1999-2001) by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, the creation of the Harkonnen no-globe is attributed to a man named Chobyn. He invents the technology and builds the no-globe for Baron Vladimir Harkonnen immediately prior to the events of Dune (1965). However, Chobyn is killed and the technology lost until it is reinvented by the Ixians millennia later during the reign of Leto II.

The ship above reminds me of either a Roman soldier, or a Terran marine from Starcraft. Or both. Hence the name Legion.


The Eraser is one of the deadliest no ship pods around. Since these small ships can only be seen with the naked eye, they are mainly used in covert nighttime 'search and destroy' operations. The no-field protects the ship from any instruments detecting it before it is too late.


The Ghostpod is fitted with all kinds of spying instruments and scanners. A small gun makes it not totally vulnerable in case of accidental discovery.


Nightmare is the only pod that isn't actually a pod, as it has a large engine section at the back. It is rather fast and rather deadly. It is mainly deployed to take out enemy aircraft, like gunships.


And here it is: Barbie's very own pink no ship pod. Well, it's mostly purple, and grey, and white. And a bit of silver. But it's definately the pinkest no ship I've ever made.


Frontal view. This baby really packs a punch. I hope for Ken's sake he hasn't been up to something of which she disapproves of.


Opening of the pod. The techniques I used aren't very dazzling. But hey, I came up with this style years ago! ;-)


Pod interior. You can see the detection screens and the guns controls. What more do you need, really? Pilot it? Nah.


Sup.

The Dune prequel series didn't really interest me... I read the primary series and made an ornithopter though.

Love the concept, may have a go at one of these soon. They look fun! No worries about being caught up in real life -- your stuff is always worth the wait anyway.

Quoting Marcus Forsberg Really nice pods here, great concept. Small, quick-built, stealthy, I might try to build one myself if that's ok with you... I like the Nightmare best, retro, classic in colour.
Thanks! And of course it is okay the try your hand with them yourself. It's not like I own the rights to it ;) I'd be very interested to see some more of these done by others.

Quoting ZEO CMF Fun no ships, i want no ship do want? I'm confusing myself now. how about a no ship ship carrier. lol
Ha ha. A carrier? Nooo. No ships operate solitary. And wouldn't a carrier kind of give away the fact that there are no ships around?

I like how this is a series showing the different configurations that are possible with the design. I also like the combination of detail/playability. Dune is my favorite sci-fi too.
