First Microspace: 'White Fire' Personal Starship

The White Fire is the personal Starship of Senator Jane De'nrin. It is heavily customized, with no (visible) armaments, but can attain an extremely high speed. It is configured with a lavish state-of-the-art luxury interior, including private bunks, a GalactiNet transceiver, and even a small spa.

I normally like to build minifig scale, and for some reason microscale has always repulsed me. I've been building with Lego for 10 years, and I've never built any serious microscale MOCs. But yesterday, I was trying to build a retro-ish thing and I just couldn't succeed, so it eventually just kinda blorped out into A microspace. It could be better, but for my first microscale creation I think it's pretty good.

And the SNOT in the nose is a lot more complicated than it looks from the outside, by the way.

That's all, bubs! What do you think of it?

Ok. Nice design as always.

And, like you, i prefer minifig-scale, but microscale sometimes gets my attention too.

I like the smooth flowing lines, but the complete lack of detail doesn't look realistic. Even a $50000000000000 luxury yacht ship (cost accurate to Vanguard stats, BTW) would have to have some things like anti-collision radar sets and comm antennas and navigation telescopes and Quantum Waveform Interference Projectors which would need to function all the time and need to be exposed in order to work. Just a couple of greeble pieces on the outer hull would establish scale and make it a lot more realistic.

I like it. Nice and simple-looking. Always best in my opinion.
