I am so happy to finally complete this! Months ago, I concieved an idea of fully SNOTed battleship that would like sea serpent, or if you please - Regalecus glesne. Ship is made of two mirror symmetrical halves. Its axis is made of sturdy framework that protect ships "internal organs", in fact this is a organ-like mega computer that houses many Phantoms that are experts on learning foreign technology. It generates great force-field that can sense enemys tactics and, through energy tentacles, it can give this information to other Atritian battleships, Siarons especially. Laterally from axis ,there are four pairs of great domes that house astronauts and living facilities as well as engines and cannons. Ship is dedicated to Asthean mage Nox, who is personally piloting the first one of this ship series.
About this creation
Nox is probably the most complex ship I have done yet. I decided to make fully SNOTed creation, and axial symmetry was the best, but definetely simpliest option. Had to make domes symetrical in perpendicular plane to avoid nessesarity of doing both sides separately.


Ship is little bit bulky in comparison to what I planned to do, but from lateral aspect it is pretty slim and curvaceous.


Morph note – receding segment size : I tried to adjust segments size to look a little heroic – great cyphotic thorax, little pelvis and long tail.




Ship is named by Nox, very famous Ashean mage that is probably the most battle-hardened person in Atritian army. I needed to delete some of head sections to expose him. He looks pretty satisfied with his ship, I hope 


Ship is covered by all metallic colors in LDD to look more plastic


















As always, it is not possible to fully understand my ships strucure if you can not see it from inside. LDD is pretty bad in looking mode to make creations looking plastic or composite. So, from far my ship looks like random mess, but its because of amount of detail it has.


Idea note – planar forcefield : As you can see, ship is made from one axial section that contains golden „organs“ and two lateral dome-like degments. Idea is that axial structure is iradianting an plane of forcefield that is so strong it must be isolated from living quarters. Its strenght helps better absorbtion of energy shots from enemy, and is so strong that it deviate trajcetory of shots from ships lateral parts, which was previously the main absorbing structure (as in Siarons). It both spares astronauts from forcefields negative effects and protec living quarters from the shells.


Ships framework. It was a first etape in ships construction. I have purposedly left it lying on its side to be able to construct SNOTed lateral parts in normal plane. Because of need to work on current segments, I made each segment from different color to be able to color-select it and copy to another file to work on segment separately.


First = thoracic axis segement. It is the most complex and largest part of the ship. As always, as most protected part, it contains ships „brain“.


Main bulky part is a support for thoracic dome, diagonal parts are wing supporters that contain main energ vaults that power another „organs“. Irregular dorsal parts are „spines that use to be at dragons back, and are both the support for main cannons and contain rotateable shield emitters that can adjust a main shield field.


Thoracic organs in all their beauty. Main brain has its parts : Most upper is the forebrain (hemispehers) for ships thinking, below it is a limbic system, that is respoonsible for non-rational ships reaction and for its intuition. More below there is a cerebellum, which controlls ships movementsvia engines and energy tentacles. The lowermost is ships „brain stem“ that channels energy through ships axis and is responsible for ships survival.


Note that ships shield emitters are hanging on framework and are one of few not SNOTed parts in this ship. Azur plaque on surface are energy veins, and golden parts have darker or lighter parts that are to emulate cells in body. Transparent parts are „Phantom crystals“ that house Phantoms – souls of deceased Atritians that can serve as ships „soul“. They can not be destroyed, but by destroying crystals they lost their access fro material world and then pass into eternity.


Axis is itself axially symetrical, and has a litte space between both its halves, but it is so small that it can not deattach from framework.


First = thoracic dome. It is a main living quarter combined with teleportation station and main hover engine.




Internal structure of dome. Note face bricks that create horisontal attachment place for furniture. Beams are to compress all structure to not fall apart from axis. As quarter-domes are very tricky to use, I made four pairs of beams to reinfoce on most places.


Fisrt etage contains beds, second tubes with strategical tools and weapons and the lowest have hygienical facilities. I made them attached on the ceilling, because nothing can be attached to quarter-domes. But, as this ship already does manipulate with greavitation, it is not difficult to use them.


Teleportation station It has many lateral cavities to house ones that want to teleportate. As ship has no connecting main corridor, teleportation is only way to move around. it is a great battle advantage, as enemy can not infiltrate more than one dome. In addition, Atritians teleportate routinely, so they have not problem to move around and fight in this ships.


Main engine tower. Its contains are meant to contain devices to collect space energy that directly fuel engines.


Main cannon bearing elements. Thorax is the only are that havve three of them, and they are the biggest ones. It is logical to put most cannons to defend the most vaulable part – the „brain“.


Morph note : these cannon towers are horisontal in ship, but to build anything is good to make it in normal plane.


All cannontowers have vertical beams that attach them to holder, plus in ship they are protectedy with heavy plating.


Abdominal axis segment. Note heavy plating on the ventral side that is meant to resemble sixpack  . Its puspose is to suck energy from shiled field and to deposit it. Disk-like machines are to absorb energy.




Rocket-like and parabola-like machines are to circulate energy both over ship and over forcefield. It is fucntionally regulated by the brain and acts like both heart and liver.


Internal abdominal anathomy. Two central holes are for astronauts to walk between halves of abdominal domes.


Abdominal dome. In dorsal half, it contains three more beds, in ventral part there is a crystal system for directing energy.




Lateral tower has a implode core for absorbing shits that are missed by main forcefield.


Detail of beds


Wings segments. Originally, I meant them to be low strucutures to just cover a framework, which would nicely visually emphasize the domes. However, I have again not estimated their size and since this, plating became wings. Using of cylinders were purposed, as they are hollow and narrow, so they can cover their framework. More importantly, cylinders are joned to each other, so they should not fall apart if this model was from real LEGO.


Wings are made in tow pairs – both of them are wider in front area, which visually resembles birds wings. One is ascending, one descending to emulate conducting of air in bird flight.


Detail of wing framework.


Pelvic axis segment. It is a smallest segment, with wings so coles to each other, that I had to reduce its dome considerably.


Main contain of this segments are generators made from round segments.


Note that generators have axles in them to hold both halves of organ together and minimalize sliding or fragmenting.


Pelvic „dome“. In fact, it very much reduced to ship mounted on a tower and serves as lifeboat or – if you please – dropship.


Ship is only loosely attached to be able to depart very quickly.


Internal anathomy of the tower.


Tail segment. It has a majority of ships generators because its domes are meant to have regenerative function – to form replaceable parts to repairt ships injuries. Sesond purpose is to form new tools and machines to adapt ship for its espionage function.






First tail dome. You can see four golden apparates that form new shield here.




Second tail dome. It is crystal deposit that works as a reserve to store very extensive enemy shots. When overloaded, it just spits a crystal with energy, that acts as a torpedo and hits closest enemy ship.




This ship must have had a lot of battle, as its crystal vaults is almost full.


Head axis. Its main contain is navigatory and sensory system and pilots and navigators cockpit.


Posterior aspect viewing through heads oral cavity.


Heads organs. Two seats for pilots and three „brains“ for aiding them in battle.


Noxs personal seat.


Heads plating. I tried to emulate gingiva with tooth plates.


Atritian dragons and their relatives have usually triple of normal creature pars. So, beside triple pelvis and triple thorax in Siaronic ships, there is also tripl eye.


Eybrow from darker cones.




Axis elements joined together.






























Thank you for watching :) ship has 75 images, so you must have be patient to come down here :)
