Looks good but no it wouldn't give me a hard time. One shot would incinerate it.

A tip on construction:

You are using lots of plates arranged flat across the ship. Try seeing if you can get some at angles to really fill out the fuselage to make it beefier in the back.

Thanks, yeah I have been looking at some of your work and trying to figure out just what is behind the plates to make it so sturdy. I'll need to change gears in my mind to work that way but I'll get it eventually. Presently I have a disorganised style of just sticking things together until I'm happy... I used to be faster at this stuff but I'm out of practice... anyway enough excuses...

I think the speed and manoeuvrability (compared to a cruiser) of a squadron (say three) of these MIGHT give you a hard time... they are rigged for anti shipping, it's what they do... though you do have turrets. Anti Fighter/Missile Escort ships would be a good idea to keep off the fighters and their missiles while the Cruiser fires the main gun at the big stuff. (It's conventional Navy tactics WWII style in space).

I call it old-school building vs. new-school building. I generally build in the same way that you do, which is classic-style lego construction. New-school designs use a lot of curves, flat plates, and angled SNOT.

Yeah... but the new way is clever and looks dead smart. I've been thinking of building a Fleet Carrier all night... only problem is the BlackStar is a one only model, I don't have the same parts for more. Still, I can make some others... just not the same... Maybe an Escort Carrier (Smaller)...

Sweet. Everything I thought it would be.
