About this creation
This started out life as a pentagonal ring I created using hinged plates.


Forming the pentagonal ring:

1. take 5 hinged plates and bend them to 72 degrees.


2. Attach them so that they form a five sided ring, there will be a gap.

3. Fill the gaps using 1x2 plates.

4. Your finished brick height pentagonal ring.




The idea was to create a star shaped vehicle to tie in with Christmas.

I'm not entirely sure I pulled that off.































The title might need some explanation.

Neo-Classic Space - Modern construction techniques used to recreate or add to the original "Classic Space" theme produced by LEGO in the 70's and 80's.

"Five Star" - Shorthand for "Five Pointed Star" which is a general description of the shape of the craft when viewed from above (or below).

Patrol Vehicle - Craft dedicated to escort and security duty.

Eagle - General description of the bird-like shape of the craft.



MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE



What worked...?

Well I did manage to (finally) get a "star" shaped ship design off the drawing board.

The colours are pure Classic Space (CS) even down to the yellow and black stripes.

The landing gear forming greebles on the undercarriage made me smile when I finished.

I remembered the oxygen tanks on the pilot this time.

(I think) the light bricks are the right way round this time.

I managed to fill in the middle section so that there isn't a huge hole where the pentagonal ring is placed.

What didn't work (so well)....?

I'm not 100% sure it looks like a star as much as a big bird.

I'm also not impressed with how minimal my tail section is, needs better engines.

The ailerons stand up too high, I need to figure out a way to smooth that out a little.

It definitely looks like an eagle star from the top view. Also, it still retains that Classic Space look. Great work!

Even though the end result looks more bird shaped, this is a very well crafted design. Also the final pictures look far more polished in an animated sort of way than I've seen in other LDD pictures from anyone. Whatever it is you're doing I say keep using it because not only can I finally tell what I'm seeing but I dare say it looks on par with physical builds, maybe even better!
