Venator Class Star Destroyer "The Legacy" . Venator Class Star Destroyer "The Legacy" . The "Legacy".
Construction time; 20 hours
Size;122 studs long, 66 studs wide, 37 studs high.
Weight; 11.7 pounds
After 20 hours of tough construction, constant swearing, and determination, "The Legacy" is complete. This moc was without a doubt the most difficult I have ever done. It presented problems not previously faced. Ex; connecting the side panels, strengthening the frame, and parts constantly falling off). However, I am satisfied with how it turned out. It could've been better, but, so could Kelso's Invisible hand....well..... maybe not the Invisible Hand.....umm....look! A monkey!
Anyhow, without further a do, I present you my greatest moc-"The Legacy".
Engines. This was definitely a difficult design concept. I couldn't make the engines and fin weigh too much, or they would sag. However, the engines and fins had to be accurately proportional to the rest of the ship. After about 45 minutes fiddling with the engines and fin, I solved the problem.
A nice little view of one of the smaller engines. I was going for a retro design, turned out quite nice.
Details on the main engines. The engines are connected to the fin by a flat 2x8 pieces. This piece supports the engines. Without, they sagged horribly and fell off. So, although it's not movie accurate, it had to be done. Plus, I decorated 'em, so, you can't even really tell they're there.
The underbelly hanger. It's not my Venator's strong point, but, it'll do. (I would've spent more time on it, but, since it would only be in one pic, I figured that complaints about it would be minimal)
One of the two stands. These are extremely sturdy, and are very easy to move into places where overhead weight presented a problem. (Yes, these are the stands from the UCS ISD)
Front view. (Yes, I know the insignias look blocky, however, at this scale it was difficult to achieve a circular shape without the insignias looking blocky)
Close up of the bridge. Although small, it has lots of details in there.
Those round 1x1 pieces sticking off the side are escape pods. For how small the dual bridges look, they are actually about 40 pieces each.
A little scene I came up with while taking pics. A mini Vulture Droid narrowly avoids being hit by the Turbolaser's laser. Up by the bridge, a Vulture Droid is pursued by a Jedi Starfighter.
I hope you guys liked this moc. I spent a LOT of time on it, so, you guys better like it, or i'll have to go all "IMA FIRIN MAH TURBOLAZER" on you. Anyhow, thanks for checking out my Venator.
Now, what to do next.........
Note: I have gotten quite a few complaints about the studs showing. People, please, if you don't like this because it has studs showing, don't whine about them. I don't like to use studless pieces for something this big, so please, get over it. The next person to whine about studs showing will have their comment deleted. If you want to make a studless Venator, the exact same size and dimensions as this one, be my guest. You will see why I opted to retain the studs.
