Aside from the four particle cannons, this ship is also equipped with two Anti-matter rockets.
They may be small but they pack a devastating punch.
Um Barak, is the most skilled pilot in his entire fleet and has more kills than any other pilot on his home planet.
Particle cannons are the Eclipse's primary weapon. Each cannon can rotate almost 360 degrees and fire four rounds per second. With four particle cannons, that equals out to sixteen rounds per second, which is more than enough to cut through just about any target.
This is a close up shot of the lower tail.
All of the green spheres and light green dishes on the ship (except for the canopy) are thrusters. When used together, they make the ship extremely maneuverable. The thirteen thrusters allow the ship to move not only forward and backward, but also straight up and down.
This is the fancy base I built for it.
Why is the ship surrounded by lava? Simply because it looks REALLY cool! Honestly, what doesn't look cooler surrounded by lava?
This is one of my favorite parts of the ship. I'm not entirely sure why, but it is.
Northern Notes: How is everyone doing? Good? Good!
I haven't been building all that much since the Moc Olympics ended. I guess I'm suffering from post-Olympics burnout. With the MocAthalon just around the corner, I had to get my butt in gear and get back into the groove.
Not only did this MOC serve in returning my motivation to build, it also scratched the Sci-Fi itch I will probably get when the MocAthalon starts. There might not be a Sci-Fi related category in the competition so I figured I'd get that urge out of my system before we get started.
Anyway, Good luck to all the teams competing in the MocAthalon! Your gonna need it!
Great design and use of greeb's to cover gaps. I have just got onto MOC's and have started an medium epic build thanks to my little boy and Thomas Haas and yourself. Loving getting back into the Lego (an adult addict now) and creating. Thanks for the insight and it would be great if you would check out - herald 1 in spacecraft listings, cheers .ATG
Compelled to Comment, even on something wildly outside my Genre: Wicked, Sick, Epic; and those are just the first three that come to mind. Fantastic build, great narration (WITH structure justification, instead of just random greebling) and an excellent colorscheme. I cringed at the Trans bits lost to the Lava effect =) All those things that they could've been... =P But that's why there's a BrickLink. HIGHEST compliments!
Beautiful! The shape, colors, playable features, and cockpit are perfect. The only thing is that I would think a ship like that would have a sleeker profile, instead of going for the Borg decor. But that's a personal thing... Keep on brickin'!
Okay, I'm just going to come out of lego hibernation for over a year to tell you that I really like this. Your favourite part is also my favourite bit of the ship. The greebles are pretty refreshing. I would consider giving the canopy a slightly different colour from the engines.
Great to see you back and building Jason! You might not remember me, my previous account name was Commander Sidewinder. I stopped uploading creations as I went through a dark age, and when I came out of it, I found my building skills had increased exponentially, it's like a building tumor was removed and my brain flourished! Aside from the pleasantries, I decided to delete my old account and start a new one for a belated new years revolution of having only my best Mocs on Mocpages. Don't know why I'm telling you all this, probably because you have given me so much inspiration. Anyways, just wanted to tell you that, and I can't wait to compete with you in the MocAthalon :D
On to the creation: As usual we see another example of Jason Corlett's unimaginable imagination! Your use of parts always astounded me, and I see you have managed to pull-off another jaw-dropping Moc! Wonderful use of pieces, and the shape of the ship is superb!
Again I can't wait to compete in the MocAthalon, good luck!
Only you would call this a quick warm-up! Superb MOC, the greebling and angles are truly astounding. I see you've used more pieces from your MocOlympics prize, show off! Fantastic work all around, and the base really helps the presentation. Good luck in the MocAthalon to you too, you might need it as well!
