Dragon Class Cruiser
The Dragon Class Cruiser was designed to be good at many things but a master of none. It's goal is to provide support to other, more specific oriented ships. It has a v-shaped hanger bay with 12 fighters and 4 bomber to provide assistance. Planetary cannons for orbital bombardment are on the bottom. An executive hanger for visiting dignitaries complete with gold trim and a red carpet. 6 turbo lasers, 4 broadside cannons and 12 anti-fighter guns. It measures 58 inches long, 14 inches tall (not including the base) and 18 inches wide. It took nearly 9000 pieces to construct and has 8 LEDs.
About this creation
This is the front of the ship. Going from left to right are the battle bridges, the shield generator cooling fins, the front shield projectors, the first turbo laser turret, the executive hanger and the command bridge.

The cooling fins for the shield generator are in the middle of the picture while the port shield projector is to the right.

It's difficult to see but there is a blue glow coming from the shield generator made from 2 LEDs stuck in each end of the engine from the Millennium Falcon Midi-Scale set.

Here's the dual command bridges. They each have an LED though it's difficult to tell in this picture. Some of the gold trim in the executive hanger can be seen below it.

Near the middle of this picture (just to the right of the stand) you may notice a couple of Duplo blocks. These are my son's so I put them in here in his honor as this is the first thing I've built since he was born.

Great ship, and well named. Outstanding shape, very original, and some excellent details and greebling. The angled hangars and executive hangar are great touches, sweet MOC!

I don't have a lot of experience with massive spaceships like this but I do like how the fighter bay is integrated in the ship, very nice, the only advice I can give you is to add some more dark blue in the colorscheme, some concentrated area's/sections of dark blue in the ship could give it some more character, particulary at the front.

Wow! Very nice! The whole thing looks great! All I would say is to improve it, some of the sections at the front end are a bit plain. Either tile them to make them sleek and smooth or add more greebles. Great work though! A lovely ship. --Blast--

It's all been said but wow, great design! Only thing I might change are the colors. The angles all around are stellar.

Ryan, this is a nice design. The hangar part and the fins really make this capital space craft stand out. However, what I would like to see on this capital space craft are more gun turrets on this particular vessel, for there to be a more SNOT-like appearance on the vessel (though the greebling is nearly flawless), for different fighter designs, and for this vessel to be made in LEGO minifigure size. Seriously, Ryan, this would be awesome in LEGO minifigure size and with some Electric System and Power Functions features, it would be even more awesome than it is now. Keep up the good work.

Massive! All sorts of cool details. Well done, Dude!

My only criticism is in regards to its purpose. A cruiser this magnificent and formidable should be at the absolute forfront of any armada. This is spectacular!!! This is something that any planet, with intentions of pi$$ing off, should fear! Beautiful shape, design, proportions, thrusters, greebling, blah blah blah! Highly impressive!

Very nice craft. Not too fond of the bow, but the rest is pure gold! ^Blub^

I think it needs more greebles. Just kidding, the amount of detail you packed into your ship is tremendous! Now you need to train your son to be your assistant!

Gorgeous work. Clearly original. I love all the details from the front to back. The front end has a nice look with the lean. It's one of the better examples I've seen of that technique because it appears so seamless. The thrusters in the rear look great. My favorite part of this is the greebling. Obviously something that took a lot of time and thought. Very well done.

Quite a unique ship, and definitely dragon-like with the bow and those panels on the dorsal hull. Good job!
