She packs enough fire power to obliterate [insert city here] 10 times in an instant.
About this creation
Here is the British Orbital Ship, the HMS Churchill. I've been hard at work lately using LDD, which by the way, it quite annoying to work with. This ship took me about 10 hours to complete, but I think it was worth it. Currently, I do not have the funds to purchase the necessary parts for her, but I am purchasing parts for another, smaller ship. Alright, so here's the specs for this beast:

Name: HMS Churchill
Classification: Orbital Battle Cruiser
Length:256.032 meters (840 feet)
Width:46.939 meters (154 feet)
Height excluding the bridge:34.137 meters (112 feet)
Height including the bridge:53.34 meters (175 feet)
Number of Decks: 14 (Four located in bridge tower)
Crew:640

Armaments:
-Two heavy forward cannons and one heavy aft cannon
-Eight broadside cannons
-Twelve missile silos contained in 3 silo bays (Silos can launch a variety of missiles)
-Twelve light torpedo launchers located at the bow
-Ten heavy torpedo launchers located on the port and starboard lower decks
-Twelve anti-aircraft platforms

Other Features:
-Docking clamps
-One main engine; four secondary engines; three tertiary engines; four back-up engines/thrusters; eight maneuver thrusters
-One three-story hanger bay
-Rounded bow
-18 escape pods (hold 40 people each)
-Magnetic landing system
-Four entrance hatches



A side view of the ship. The ship is symmetrical, so it's basically the opposite of the main picture.



A top view from a bow angle. Note the slight greebling in the areas around the bridge. The telecommunications array is also located behind the bridge tower.



A shot of the immense engines. After the invention of cold fusion, ships such as this were constructed. The HMS Churchill uses three cold fusion reactors, one cold plasma reactor, and twelve enormous electrical generators.



A side view.



A quick underside view; here you can see the other two missile silo bays as well as the magnetic landing system and some slight greebling.


So that's it for the HMS Churchill. Thanks for checking this MOC out, feel free to rate and/or comment. And before you go....

-Did you know this model contains 854 lego pieces?
-Did you notice that the AA platforms are just horizontal claws because LDD won't give me minifig hands?
-Did you know that cannon design was originally seen on one of Juan.'s pages? By the way Juan, credit goes to you. Thanks.
-Did you know there are enough escape pods to hold over 700 people? Can't be too careful...
-Did you notice that the stud to foot ratio is 1 stud/14 feet?
-Did you know that even if you wanted them, I wouldn't give out instructions for my orbital ships?

Auf Wiedersehen!

Nice work! I've never been too much of a fan of LDD building, but this is very good!

Quoting Peter www.tirpitz.net You like to have comments but no negative ones ... we'll see what I can do ;-) Building a ship is a REAL hard job. I know that. A spaceship can be a little bit easier but I think you took it too easy in this model. You skills in LDD look quite good and the ship looks good. But - there is something missing. That "something" that the visitors forces to say "wow! what a MOC!". For a model with the size of your orginal in the scale you used it is difficult to build this "wow!" thing. You have to make something special or you have to make LOTS of tiny fancy details. For a large orginial with large scale model you have to be patient and nitpicking (you may have a look at my models, you will see what I mean). So have a second look at your model and ask yourself some questions: what color might me an enrichment for which details? What would I expect to see that would attract me? What "special" unanticapted thing would make people laugh, cry, or whatever else instead of clicking "back" in the browser. For the good overall impression it is still a 4/5. Just one addition: you may use MLCAD instead of LDD. It allows you to use all possible LEGO parts and not only all at LEGO purchasable LEGO parts. See http://www.tirpitz.net/equipment.html for all what you need with links.
Thanks so much for the comment. Very constructive indeed. I am actually a big fan of your MOC, the Tirpitz. Indeed, the design for this is probably easier than some of the other mocs on this site, and this thing couldn't stand up to the Tirpitz. I'm starting to branch off though, and I'm experimenting with some new structural designs. I will try the programs you have suggested, hopefully I will really be able to get creative. And by the way, when I wrote negative comments on my page, I meant the ones that are like "this sucks." Haha, I just like a little more constructive criticism.

Quite nice, I personally don't use LDD since I have little to no patience so kudos for creating such a detailed ship ;)
