Star battleship construction log update 16/8

Postby dilanski » Wed Jul 29, 2009 7:38 am

I decided to keep a better log of the construction of my star ship seeing as it will be the largest creation on the forum.

29/07
Spent some time today working out how big the finnished product will be orignally my target was 130cm 10cm longer that natalya's corvette, but I've decided to go further to 160cm. I also upgraded its missiles to MK4 tactical ISBM's (think ICBM's)

07/08
Just placed a PAB order for some parts, also i'm working on a few little things like the warp core and computer desk's.[/u]

PISSED OFF EDIT:in order to shut you all up for a bit a few pictures of the ship.

Image

my next order will hopefully double it's size and let me actually do something with it.

Image

My flag is on the ships hanger bay. Below the hanger bay you can see some of the in atmosphere engines.

Image

From left to right:My chair with a computer on it. A prototype warp core with a semi-circle desk, i'm going to replace the empty curves with computer's. Holograph emitter showing a planet. prototype sensor array.

I couldn't be bothered to get all the desks and other details i'd made out becuase

A: i'm lazy.

B: There under a ton'O'crap.

11/8

While i'm waiting for my PAB order to arrive i find myself making little things, mainly surface elements to be later added, and one of those things i made today, i liked so much for no good reason i thought i'd share it with you.

Image

these are two in atmospheric stabilizing fins i made, on the end of each fin is a small railgun, i do have another large ramp piece but it wasn't in my work area at the time.

Image

A closeup of the railgun.

16/8

Image

This is my progress to date, i haven't yet put ANY of the details on yet so it is very bare and blocky.

I honestly had my doubts about this getting off the ground by damn that looks like it will be one fine ship when you've finished. It does cry out for lots of bits and stuff on the outside to make it look right, which I'm sure you are intending to do anyway so I'll shut up. Over all, good work.

Very nice, I'm done griping, I like the schematic on the wall.... Are you going to be true to the design, or do you think your going to change it up a bit?

Its kind of hard to get precise stats but i have a good idea, also im holding out to the last second to counter, any new creations out, Guesstimation:

Size:
max Height:30 bricks?
length:160 cm
average width:14 studs(the main body is 12)

Crew:
1 Grand admiral dilanski
3-5 commanders
10 general crew?
3 mediks
3 enginers?
+star marines

(i'm not so sure about the crew so don't hold it to heart)

Weapons:
15 MK4 ISBM's
2 Super specail awesome secret weapons

(im not sure about the rest)

Other basic stats:
speed:15"
Warp speed:9
Armour level:5-6(c'mon its my flagship)

This is all i have got at the moment, but i'll get more later.
