Hammerhead class cruiser and mini Ebon Hawk . The Hammerhead-class cruiser was a type of warship used by the Republic Navy during the Old Sith Wars, the Mandalorian Wars, and the New Sith Wars. . The problem with building a ship from a computer game, is that there aren't that many good pictures or schematics available of it (most of my reference material came from screenshots I took from the Harbinger in KOTOR II). And the ones I did find differ greatly from each other, because it's mainly concept art or comics. One time it has three engines, one time four or six. So I decided I'd make one that just looks both recognisable and awesome ;) I also felt I needed to add an Ebon Hawk to scale, like I did with the mini Millennium Falcon and the Nebulon B. Some stats Model: Hammerhead-class cruiser Class: Cruiser, Capital ship Length: 315 meters (122 studs!) Navigation computer equipped Armament: * Dual heavy Turbolaser cannons (4) * Turbolaser cannons (2) * Point-defense laser cannon batteries (2) * Quad laser cannons(2) * Tractor beam generator (1) Complement * 12 Aurek tactical strikefighters * 2 Ministry-class orbital shuttles * Various support craft Crew * 400 * 300 Passengers Cargo capacity * 4,000 tons Consumables * 8 months What I like about this design, is that the top and bottom of the 'hammer' gets narrower very subtlely (with 1/2 stud offsets). I didn't like it to be straight, and I didn't like it to be sloped or wedge-shaped. I think this is just perfect. The Hammerhead from a front angle. Notice the bridge windows running all the way into the gun mounts on the side. I still don't know why it's called a hammerhead ;) I guess it's shaped this way to increase the weapon range, like the s-foils on an x-wing. Detailed view of the bridge running into the ear-mounted guns. I guess it's the gunner's window. One more from the side, to appreciate just how large these guns are. The patches on the back of the head were directly shaped from screenshots of the Harbinger from KOTOR II. Backside shot with engines. I think these came out well. I had never before used tracks before in a MOC. Not for anything other than tracks, that is ;) Somehow I expected the ship to have a large fin in the back, but it didn't. The ship from an angle you wouldn't want to be seeing it: attack position. Detailed view of the hind part. I like the big gap in the large red thing on the back and the dark gray greebly parts. It's like it's missing some plating after a few battles. Side greeblies. The setup, with stand and Ebon Hark attached to it. And my patented black t-shirt technique for shooting :) Here you can see inside the head during building. The head had multiple layers of jumper plates for the 1/2 stud offset. The Ebon Hawk and the side guns. They're almost the same size! ##### I felt this Star Wars warship from Knights Of The Old Republic (Endar Spire, Harbinger, Sojourn) deserved some Lego attention. I've seen a couple of micro- and nanoscale ones, and one attempt at one at this size (the head). But never a finished one. So I thought I'd do it myself then. Well here you go.
