Most of the stuff I've posted has been small-ish MOCs usually from Nintendo or Warcraft. This is because most of my original creations are never 100% complete. Today, I managed to finish my largest creation ever, the Crystal Spark. This model of the ship is version 3.0 from a previous version I built in the summer, which was in turn an improvement on the original one. I never quite completed either of those, and three days ago I scrapped the whole thing and reset with a new design that was 50% bigger. Somehow, it was actually easier to do than the first one. So now I am proud to present my biggest MOC to date, the Crystal Spark!
About this creation
Here's a view from the side of the ship. Ver. 2.0 had 4 bubble windows in the front corridor and 2 on the bridge, and the original only had 3 windows total. Most of the key parts to build this thing I actually got from the Lego Inside Tour at Billund. I'd like to take the rest of this paragraph to give those guys special thanks. Thank you, guys!
Here's a top-side view. I love how the wings look from the top. The wings are the only surviving part of version 2.0, as I carried them over exactly from the previous model.
Here's the back of the ship. This is my third "big ship" that I've ever done, and each time, the back is always the hardest part for me. I thought the boxy rear end looked awkward with such a stream-lined ship, but then I got over it. That window sits right behind the captain's seat, but more on that later.
Here's the front of the ship. This was the part that gave me trouble on the last design, so I decided to build it first this time before I did anything else. The blue panel on top isn't just for show. It's actually helping to hold the windshield onto the ship. You can, however, lift it...
To get to the pilot inside! I searched for about an hour to find that little trans-green screen. It just looked so perfect.
The windshield isn't the only part that comes off. The whole roof can be lifted up to see inside the ship. The middle part is just a hall with a couple of exit doors, but the bridge is worth a bit more of a look at.
This bridge had the most detail of any other that I had done before. I had tried to envision a way to put the bridge on a second level, but then I put in the cool skylight instead.
The computer consoles of the ship. That's just about all I can say on this picture.
This isn't the end of the gallery! Continue on to part 2 to see more of the Crystal Spark!
