Battlecruiser GC-4444
GC-4444 is a cruiser loosely based on the shape of the epic spaceship that appeared in Daft Punk's Interstella 5555 movie. I made an early version in the same shape a few years ago (will up soms pics of that soon). It has the base shape of an electric guitar! But now it's packed with guns and some neat little features I added. Enjoy!
About this creation


Attack!






Full side view






Back side, engine detail and fins






The cockpit slides open to the back 3 studs, providing acces to the pilot






Center piece: the cockpit is seen as well as the opened cargo holds.






An astromech droid, located in front of the cockpit to assist in flight + a maintenance drone, located in one of the cargo holds




Here's a link to Daft Punk's 'Digital Love', where the ship it's inspired on is featured.
And here's a link to the full movie if you're interested ;) And here's a pic:



As you can see, all that remains basically in this model is the base shape reference. It's been turned into a war machine packed with lasers and moar lasers! The ship has a more traditional colour combo: black bottom, gray/red on top. It has an astromech droid to assist in flight and in fight. The cargo holds provide room for intergalactic transport of goods / materials etc. One of the cargo holds contains a maintenace drone. The ship has a retractable landing gear and boosters so it can vtol and it doesn't need to crash land like in the movie (lame). The location of the cockpit has been brought more to the back, safer that way. Also the engines are a tad bit different from the original.

Thanks m8, I'm honoured. It's barely swooshable but it's awesome just to look at. The photoshopping bit is as much fun as the build, getting it together and virtually up in space ;)

Aye, I've seen your links to the cover artists and indeed there is a certain resemblance. I'm honoured ;) Thanks.
Quoting David Roberts To my eyes, this has a real retro shape, like a fantasy from the 1970's or one of the book covers that I liked as a child. Great work on the photoshopping, especially the third photo with the guns blazing. I like how this is quite a large ship for just one pilot: I think that this makes it more realistic.

Too hot to handle! Gift wrap would burn instantly ;) So no, no Xmas cruiser..sorry :( thanks Barto
Quoting El Barto ! Awesome! Great overall shaping and details. Will this be available for Christmas? I concur with David, it reminds me of something from back in the 70s...
