Sucellus
This was built in September as an entry for the SHIPtember building challenge over on Flickr.
About this creation
After 23 days of building, close to ten thousand pieces and two and a half hernias trying to lift it. I give you, Sucellus.
She measures in at 125 studs long (137 if you include the antennae),46 studs tall, 24 studs wide and weighs around 30 LBS. That makes it the biggest SHIP I have ever built and it's the longest I've ever spent on a single MOC.

Now for some fantastically futuristic storytelling!
In the year 2140, Earth's temperature has climbed to unlivable heights. These temperatures have made it impossible to grow crops and going outside for a walk would kill you in five minutes flat. To solve both of these problems, NASA launched Sucellus, the first of many agriculture ships into orbit around the sun. The curved side of the ship faces the sun and can house millions of crops of varied species it has large ventilation fans to expel excess heat and an extremely thick hull to protect the crops and crewmen from the dangerous radiation.

The flat side of the ship solves the other problem on Earth. This side houses hundreds of thousands of civilians. Each home has a breathtaking galaxy view and all the fresh fruits and veggies you can eat. This side is facing away from the sun so most of the radiation is blocked.
Within the next twenty years, at least fifty of these ships will orbit the sun. Some will be modified to carry livestock, factories, and even recreational facilities. Thus creating a home away from home.

I also made a stop-motion 360 spin of Sucellus that you can watch Here.

Mobile colony, ho! Nice design, and very interesting. You classifed them as a ship, and not a station, so I assume these will not remain in a stationary orbit? ^Blub^

AHHH where is my jaw:-) Se looks mighty fine and what a fantastic story. If You layed down the ship with the color side up, You also have a good start on a broad spaceship. Once again, a very nice creation.

Awesomely fantastic and unconventional! In spite of that, it seems like something straight off the drawing boards at NASA. It looks like a real starcraft. The details are wondrous and the textures and greebling are entrancing. Great color blocking and killer style. That curvature is trick and the six sided thrusters are intriguing. Stellar ride!

I was wondering if this was going to show up on MOCpages. Just a wonderful build, Jason. I actually thought you should have gotten higher honors in the contest. The greebling is top notch, the shaping is interesting and believable, (which I put higher empahasis on than most other builders, or judges for that matter), and I love the back story. Well done, Jason, and glad to see this one get the full MOCpages treatment;)

Huge, unusual, and really well thought out SHIP. At first glance I thought it was a WIP, but your well written sci-fi intro makes good sense! Nice one!

Epic ship, glad you posted to MOCpages. One of my favourites from the month.

Great styling. But cooling fans are ineffective in vacuum of space. Or, if they are not in vacum, the ship will continously loose some cooling gas which should be replaced from somewhere. Moreover letting out gas in such a big fans will create reactive force, which will divert the ship from its trajectory.
