Hello all, today i present to you something different, (deja vu here)
It's a battlestar!!!! Anyway, after reading El Barto's latest wonder, i decided, its time to build myself a battlestar, here's the result, Shout out to El Barto for creating such an awesome continuation for BSG...
About this creation
Length: 57 studs (18in or 48.5cm)
Width: With flight pods retracted: 20 studs, (almost 6.5in or 16cm)
with flight pods extended : 24 studs (7.5in or 19cm)
Height: 11 studs (4.1in or 8cm)
Now for the pics:
The front batteries
Didn't see that one coming did ya? Missile tubes
watch the 2 sliding parts carefully
Now, an airtight seal is created
Another setof main batteries
Starboard flight pod
YES! the flight pods can retract for jumps!
Here's the mechanism, the tubes holding the flight pod slide over that smooth surface, and since the are flat on top, slide under the square plate
And that 1x4 plate physically stops the tube from falling off
Another set of batteries
As you can see, drawing inspiration from galactica, this ship also has 6 sub-light engines.
Main Batteries, Anti-Ship ammunition! FIRE!
Anti Ship missiles Armed!
Juat another view of the ship
The bottom, as you can see the starboard flight pod was a bit off when i took this pic
The top, again
The tubes are more than capabel of holding the flight pods in place, even in Earth's gravity ;)
Hey, Dude! Awesome ship! It's got the two features mine doesn't, the retractable pods and the missile tubes. Some nice close up shots, especially the one into the starboard flight pod. Glad you like the show and that it inspired you to make your own battlestar. Thanks for the shout-out!
