TS Home Skillet
The TS Home Skillet is a reconnaissance version of the Thinships Fleet.
About this creation
The TS Home Skillet was produced to infiltrate enemy lines and assess their battle tactics. It does not usually engage the enemy, but it is well-armed to fight in the event it gets detected during a reconnaissance run. This ship is currently one of the fastest in the fleet.





- SPECS -
Class : Thinship (TS)
Subclass : Reconnaissance
Manufacturer: Space Homeys Interstellar Technologies™
Affiliation : Agency for Shroud of Stealth
Length : 10m
Width : 0.6m (excl. side rails)
Total Width : 1.2m (incl. side rails)
Engines : 3 Reactionless Space Thrusters
Speed : 30G
Power Source: 1 Nuclear Fission Reactor
Weapons : 1 Electron Particle Beam, 2 Sidemount Multidirectional Ion Blasters
Defense : Force Field, Signature Damper
Personnel : 1 (pilot/gunner)




Electron Particle Beam.




1. Vacuum and Cooling Systems
2. Linear Particle Accelerators
3. Storage Rings
4. Klystron Array
5. Sidemount Multidirectional Ion Blaster




To cut down on weight, the TS Home Skillet was not fitted with a canopy. Instead, side rails were ample to keep the pilot within the cockpit. I mean, how do you enjoy space if you are not one with it? Nothing like getting sindged by solar flare.




Three Reactionless Space Thrusters.




Front View.




Back View ... Not quite the Sir Mix-A-Lot spread, but it has some mondo thrust power!




Zooming through enemy lines!




Although enemy side attack is still an issue, the Sidemount Multidirectional Ion Blasters offer some counterstrike.
















If the TS Home Skillet happens to get hit by enemy fire, it breaks up and releases the Escape Pod.

UPDATE (11/03/2009): I entered this ship in the 18th Deep Space Fleet's Starfighter Contest. It garnered a 2nd place finish!

This Ship Due To Its Unique Shape, Is Very Eye Catching, It's Not What Would Come To Most Minds When Someone Would Think Of a Space Ship, But It Works.

Really cool design Shifu, love the fact that it's all only 2 studs wide. I have yet to check out Yuri's stuff but I will now. This is very inspirational because it's way 'outside the box'! Great creative work here, Master.

I really can't figure out head from tail on this one (although I'm not really sure whether or not that's a good thing) but it really looks cool! It has this look-it's not that amazing spaceship built by Nannan Z that's universally acknowledged as one of the best spaceships in the world, but it's amazing in it's own way.

"Don't taze me bro!" This beauty reminded me of the personal tazers people carry when you need to fry some scumbag's nuts off for snatching a purse or coping a feel! It's sleek, very well built with lots of details and the breakaway hull with the escape scooter is perfect for this design!

Quite possibly the strangest ship I've ever seen! Which also makes it one of my favorite! I've never seen such a unique design as this before, 5/5 for being to original and creative!! Awesome job!

Quoting Giovanni Seynhaeve With the lighting the black almost looks like bronze.
Gotta credit Crimso Style lighting on that one - fluorescent light + default white balance on the camera gives it that "yellowish" color. Thanks!

This has to be my fav creation from you. With the lighting the black almost looks like bronze. The nose is unlike anything I've seen outthere and the structure is just lovely: detail and beauty all in one!

Love this! The black and the transparent red really go great together. I'm actually working on a ship with the same color scheme. Once again great job and keep up the good work. p.s Thanks for the comment.

Thinships are an interesting concept. Gonna have to design one for my star armada worlds. Yours has very crisp, clean styling.

A nice addition to the fleet. I am especially fond of the nose of the ship. Lee.

Hmm, I commented on this last week, must have said something naughty to get banned. Oh well, let's try this again. This is a great design and as already pointed out, the acronyms you used are great. Sir Mix a-lot, wow, that takes one back.

Quoting Samuel Diprose Interesting, I like the 'open plan' feel those girders give the MOC! I'd feel pretty exposed as the pilot though. :)
OK, I got "exposed"! Hehe... Honestly, I do not have any space-themed parts so I had to make up a story about not having a canopy. The girders were used to take up space; not enough black bricks!... XD

Quoting Yuri Fassio About the scale problem (in Space Pirate's comment), I "mean" my builds to be at 1:42.5 scale. This way the fig is an average guy. That's how I based all my measuring for the ArcheoGenis series, anyway.
Eek! I did not know there were exacting specs for this design. I just kinda eyeballed your MOCs and estimated values based on Steef's versions.

Quoting Moodswim . This is a very "gripping" design:) I love the escape pod idea. Nice acronyms too:)

hehe...well, actually I don't really bother ;) but to be formal...a minifig is 5 studs, your width is 4 studs. At 1.2m (1.2x5/4) your minifig is 1.5m tall...umm...short :P

Quoting Master Shifu Leo J I apologize for not asking permission before I posted, but I notice you already commented on my version! Thanks! I need to investigate the movie you mentioned. Sounds really interesting! Thanks for the inspiration!
No need to apologize: "imitation is the highest form of flattery". It would have been enough to mention me, but you went beyond and also added a link. Thank you :)

Flat like a flounder, hardly visible and attackable from the front. Just be sure, there is nobody coming from the sides. The escape "cradle" is neat!

Quoting Steef de Prouw ... And that weapon? An Electron Particle Beam? What, you mean a taser? ;)
Shazam! Looks and zaps like a taser! HAHAHA!!! ... I did not wanna call it TS Taser. TS Home Skillet sounds funnier... XD

Quoting Mark Kelso With that unique shape I'd have expected it to be called the Gut Wrench or something. Whatever ya call it, though, that's a crazy-fun design!
I was thinking around the lines of cast iron skillet, but the several iterations of the build got away from the original idea. I was too lazy to rename it... XD

Quoting Chris Phipson ... I'm hoping you keep with this line and provide us with the Home Slice and the Home Fries... ~ Chris.
What?!?! More home builds? I was scraping for parts to build this... XD

Quoting Space Pirate I like the front view with the side-mounted ion blasters coming out! Very cool. I doubt that 4 studs are 1 m though...rather 1.5
I'd compromise for 1.2m... XD

Fantastic. There's a great skeletal feel to the ship, and -as mentioned before- the front side is very interestingly shaped. The escape pod is a bonus that had my by surprise. A great addition to the TS fleet. And that weapon? A Electron Particle Beam? What, you mean a taser? ;)

Yuri, I JUST bought that movie Monday night when I picked up transformers! Haven't seen it in years and am looking forward to it again. ANYWAY, Shifu, I'm hoping you keep with this line and provide us with the Home Slice and the Home Fries. mmmm home fries... Ok, hungry now, thanks a lot Shifu... ~ Chris.

Agree with Dave for the front part, but it's the whole thing that is epic in term of part usage ! Some areas are quite intriguing "how does he made that" :D Yuri can be proud - Fantastic !!!

You can't understand how much I liked this unless I tell you how much I love the movie "Black Hole". Your thinship reminded me closely of the Cygnus (which I never saw in LEGO) and it has an escape space scooter!
