The Minotaur
About this creation

The Minotaur was my first SHIP. It was 146 studs long (almost four feet), and weighed 28 lbs. While I feel that my second two SHIPs were far superior, this one remains popular, so I keep it here.


The Minotaur is a heavily armed battle ship. It features two triple-barreled laser turrets, six ion cannons for orbital bombardment, seven fighter bays (3 on each side and one in front) for its fleet of drone fighters, and a variety of smaller arms.



Some of my favorite angles:

The exterior airlock doors:


A roof section removed to expose the interior of the airlock chamber. Those levers control the interior airlock doors. One interior door leads to the crew quarters, and the other leads to the unpressurized fighter bays:

Now this is a battle ship, heavily armed and armoured with good sized engines. The colour scheme just screams of war and battle. Amazing, one of the best SHIP's i have seen in a long while. If you were to incorporate your large vessels into a universe with background stories i beleive you would get many more views and ratings. Very very nice job. A true masterpiece.

Wow, dude. You've put a lot of effort in this build, and it's rarely that I say it, but this was worth the work. Taking a closer look I saw pieces angled at different angles, which I'll assume was a pain for you to execute. Brilliant work man! -Dylan
