Sebeus 1 . The spaceship I've been working on for so long. .
The Sebeus 1 was named after a builder I have great respect for and highly admire, Sebeus I.
What is the Sebeus 1 anyway you might ask? If you thought "space container" you were almost correct. It is, in fact, a space equivalent to a camper van! It was made from a salvaged "Classic Space Industries" cargo container (the big boxy red part), to which a cockpit and an engine were attached, and the inside was tidied up too - we'll get to that in a bit.
The right side of the ship. The added life support and gravity generating technology is visible on the outside in the form of greebles, since noone really cared to add a plate over it. It looks cooler this way anyway.
The ship up front. Three large windows were installed on the front plate as well as a tiny mast on the top, above the second hatch and engine.
Top down view. You can see the large number 1 spelled out on the roof. It's also worth noticing how the white engine+cockpit part wraps around the red housing module.
Left side. Features the cockpit (sideways) and the "micro nuclear powerplant" manufactured by the "Cheap & Cheaper Technologies". It's the part with the danger sign. Behind it is the access cover and the main engine.
The rear. The powerplant access hatch is seen together with both ion engines. The top one is a lot smaller and is used mainly for maneuvering.
The communication array in all it's glory. Falls apart easily.
The big 1 on the roof along with more greebles and the second access hatch. Since it lacks an airlock, it's useless in space, but I guess it helps if you park your ship in a really tight area and can't get out through the normal boarding hatch.
The cover of the nuclear generator space.
The nuclear generator itself - a clusterduck of wires, tubes and UZrH fuel. Best to be left alone for own safety.
Finally, the cockpit! Pretty standard, except for the fact the pilot lacks vision of the entire right section. Luckily, a set of parking cameras was installed.
There's a set of gauges and a sonar (for all the space submarines) on the wall, so the pilot can monitor heat levels of the engines and generator (and space submarines).
The boarding hatch cover. Inside is a boarding ramp that unfolds
finally, we got to the inside!
It's the main point this was built. I wanted to make a ship that fits a standing minifig that can also live there. So here we go: on the left is the tech section and on the right are the living quarters.
The living section:
Features an armchair in the front part with a monitor that opens from the wall.
As seen here, Eris the travelling spaceman is chilling in his armchair, working on his laptop while checking the... the satellite trajectory? I think it's time I get myself a sticker machine.
The living half of the ship also has a small kitchen with a stove, a minifridge and a "Brewtron 3000" coffee machine. Next to the kitchen is a Bosch Automatic cleaning and disinfection unit. Automatic as in "turns on by itself but never works when you want it to".
The tech side! has all the controls Eris needs to keep this baby running, and then some. from right to left: The life support controls and information screens (and greebles inside the wall), to the left two crates of supplies and a jar of... of.. something. Next is the door to the airlock and boarding hatch and on the rear wall the engine controls
Life support. Evident from the tubes and gauges.
A tiny portable TV, for when the constant oxygen levels on the screens get too boring.
There's also a trashcan full of tools and a severed droid head beside it. Eris picked that up in the shadowland of Kashyyyk and it's been around since.
Airlock door open. Sweet sweet freedom!
Eris working on his laptop again, waiting for those long space days to end. It's kinda meaningless to call them days if you're not orbiting a star, but he likes to think he's still on Earth.
Space days are generally measured by the equation "Time of one rotation around nearest star divided by 365". If you're not orbiting around a star, one day is still 24 hours, but there cannot be any years. If you're orbiting around a planet, a day is one rotation around the planet. The complexity at which space days are calculated makes writing journals very hard for the poor space travelers.
After a long space day, Eris likes to lay back in his reclined armchair with a nice mug of tea.
interior, again. I deliberately mixed old and new gray and new and aged white colours as to portrait the age of the ship and make it look used.
Also, it has really awesome landing gear that I couldn't really take a picture of since turning it upside-down is very risky business.
Eris says hi!
