This project has evolved a lot since I started it. It all began with the ship. Then I built a tower. Then a landing pad. Before I knew it, I had a huge diorama taking up all my desk space. Don't you hate it when that happens?
About this creation

This is the loading zone of Cargo Station 06-C. This is where all the cargo is brought onto the landing pad for the Carriers to haul away.


This is the Cargo storage area. All the cargo and containers are stored in this area until it is time to deliver them. The computer is used to track the destination of each container and tell the loading crew when it is to be loaded.


With this being a major shipping facility, The empire keeps a close eye on everything that happens here. Regular Stormtrooper patrols roam the station every day.


Off-duty pilots can relax in one of the hundreds of landing towers scattered throughout the station.


Tower landing pads are usually used to land small craft and even to store unused equipment. This one is being used to store a claw attachment for the Macho-Class Cargo Carrier.


Refueling speeders travel all over the station to keep all the Carriers fueled and ready for flight.


Due to the lack of standard landing platforms or integrated boarding ramps in the ships, portable boarding ladders are used by pilots to enter their ships.


A Stormtrooper patrol looking for anything suspicious.


All Macho-Class Cargo Carriers are equipped with Automatic turrets for protection. These turrets are unfortunately not very reliable and are in constant need of repairs.


Facilities this large become a hiding place for the scum of the galaxy. Just about anyone can blend into the chaotic traffic and go completely unnoticed. That is why Bounty Hunters are frequently hired to seek out unauthorized intruders.


These containers may look small but most of them weigh too much for an human to carry. That's why droids are used to move all small containers to where they need to go.

Now that you've seen the Diorama as a whole, let's take a look at the individual parts by themselves.


This is the Macho-Class Cargo Carrier. It is piloted by one and is armed with one quad-barrel laser cannon on each side of the cockpit and an Automatic Turret.


The engine pods increase the ship's balance and provide it with enough throttle to lift even the heaviest loads.


With three thrusters it makes the ship very maneuverable. Which makes it much easier to drop cargo in small areas.


The cockpit has controls for everything the ship can do. There are joysticks for the laser cannons and manual controls for the turret as well as buttons and switches to control the cargo locking clamps and thruster pod steering.


The quad-barrel laser cannons can rotate 360 degrees and can be angled outward and inward to hit off-coarse targets.


As you can see here.


The turret can also be rotated 360 degrees and angled up and down.


The front and rear landing gears are only used when the ship is not carrying any cargo. When cargo is loaded, the two landing gears in the pod thrusters are lowered to increase stability.


The underbelly of the ship is equipped with two high-power magnets to hold onto the cargo. Every shipping container has the same magnets on top for the ship the connect to.


Here is the underbelly with a standard container attached.


And here it is again with the claw attachment.


Containers are used to ship pretty much anything that can fit inside.


But for things much too large for the containers, The claw is used.


Round liquid material shipping containers are just one of the many things this claw can haul.

Well, that's the Macho Carrier covered. Let's move on the rest of the models.


This is the Refueling Speeder. It has two tanks filled with fuel and a pumping nozzle. The front of the speeder even has a small space to haul small containers.


This is the main loading area of Cargo Station 06-C. It has just enough room to allow a Macho Carrier to land.


This is another form of container. This one is built to carry volatile gases.


Here it is again without the stand.


This is landing tower #17. Like most of the other towers in the station, This one has a lounge for pilots to relax after a long flight. Basically, it's a futuristic version of a truckstop.








The landing pad on top of the tower is a bit too small to accommodate the Macho Carriers but smaller craft should have no problem landing.


This balcony is how the landing pad is accessed. When a privately owned ship is docked, The ladder raises and makes the landing pad unaccessible without the provided security key.


The short range communicators used by the loading crewmen are relayed through these COMM antennae on the towers to greatly increase their range to cover the entire station. Without these antennae, the communicators would only have the strength to reach the other end of the loading area.


This antennae is used to receive communications from the Macho Carriers.

And now for all those minifigures!


This is the loading crew. Everyone from loading, refueling and cargo schedulers.


This group consists of pilots, crew managers, and the bounty hunter.


And of coarse, stormtroopers and droids.



Well, that's all folks! Thanks for taking a look through the pictures and reading all those darn explanations. You look like you could use a nap now. :)

For all you wondering what the canisters are, I found them with a little searching: They're from set 8580 Kraata, but nobody seems to be selling the canister alone, unfortunately. If you read this and ARE selling them alone, leave me a comment on one of my mocs, I'm interested!

How do you plan out what bricks you need and doesn't it take a while for them to come and to build ?

First, time for my favorite line these days... "Sorry for the delay in commenting..." Man I say that too much these days. I loved the parts usage with the container. Nice use of the Death Star there! The entire moc was excellent! All the little bells and whistles just came together flawlessly. Great work! ~ Chris.

Totally awesome! It blows my mind. The only thing that would make it better is if the words on the landing strip were in Arabesh...ok, maybe that's a bit too geeky :)

Speechless!!... Each part is a great MOC. This dio is EPIC, really accurate and a great tribute to SW's spirit. The ship is brilliant, the claws are very clever so are the different loads. A pleasure to watch.

A great vignette, with a nice ship too. I like the tower a lot & the landing pad lettering too. The ability to swap between containers and the claw is clever. Great to see somebody else using the Death Star for another purpose too!

Awesome stuff, Dude! Great close ups, too. Crafty use of the Death Star sphere, as are the tower details. But what qualifies as suspicious?

This is probably my new favorite creation...of all time. The greebles on the ship and the sides of the tower are fantastic, and the words "Landing Zone" are very well done. One question, is the Rodian head from the new Tatooine set, with the podracers?

To answer your question: "Before I knew it, I had a huge diorama taking up all my desk space. Don't you hate it when that happens?" Not when the ship & diorama are so well done like this one. Excellent work on the ship, tower and pad. You just need a big gulp machine and a way to nuke the frozen burritos in the tower truck stop.

One of the best Star Wars dioramas I've seen in a long time. You really nailed the grittyness of the Star Wars/low budget Imperial/freighter look. I could go on for a long time listing everything I like, but instead I'll save us both some time: it's perfect. Chances are I will be borrowing some of these techniques, giving you credit, of course.
