SHIP designed LEGO Space craft for carrying mecha wherever they may go.
About this creation
Dragon is designed in mind with mecha based special forces units. This ship is a smallish (roughly Yacht sized) and equiped to penetrate defenses unseen and punch a hole to escape if seen. Dragon has a sizable cargo hold with a secondary fighter drone bay. Crewing is minimal (6) with the bulk of passengers being the special forces unit and their support. The bay is awfly dark in the aft portion so I added what LEGO based lighting I had. (two single lights and one double light) The battery box/switch is accessable through a removable panel directly aft the dorsal turret. Enjoy the MOC.
Those are hallfire droid wheels sandwiched between NBA inverted 1/4 domes. I envision it as a shield generator/cloaking device. Others think it's a loading system for the gun. Whatever tickles ya. :) The big panel that says "03," That's a door.
Weapons? Yes. Let's see two capital class autocannon, two capital class projection cannons, 3x12 shot reloadable anti-cap ship missle bays, 2xMladen-esque missle racks, two dual anit anytihng side guns, 6x point defense pulse lasers, etc...
This drove me crazy. Angle the brick like this. So, if you have technic brick, and the vertical section is 10 bricks high and you want a nice sloped portion attaching to those technic bricks, how many bricks/plates should the sloped portion be seperated by? I won't tell. Figure it out. ;)
Dragon's crew and compliment. That's a crew of 6, four engineers, four mechs, four mechwarriors, three fighter drones, two support drones, six man tactical squad, one heavy support tank and a mascot. (not pictured, sniffing camera)
Wow, this is not a bad vehicle at all, Mark! Anyway, I just saw that you had a video on YouTube and it mentioned another vehicle that you had built, namely the Universal Explorer. When will you be posting links to that nice vessel of yours? Anyway, I wish that people like Mark Stafford, Kyle Keppler, the rest of the old guard LUGNet users, and others like Crismo Giger, Daniel Jassim, and other capital space ship builders on here would show you some support on here. Finally, nice job with both of those builds, I would love to build something with you if you're around the Twin Cities area, and, if you would like to do so, you can check out, as well as comment, on my few builds. Thanks.
I actually hadn't planned on it. I may still update this however. I continue to get comments from MOCpages, and that tugs at me. My brickshelf gallery is sort of an archive at this point, I have not updated that either. I've moved on to flickr for most of my MOC display needs:

Are you planning to post your newer stuff on here?
Absolutely incredible!!! YOur attention to detail and lighting use adds a level of Awesome that lego creations are seldom capable of reaching in my book. I love ships and frigates.
If I had as many pieces as you do, My perfectionist mind would have a joygasm.
Nice use of the old sets.That is one very impressive crusier.Snaps for you!Youve inspired me greatly and I want to build a thing from an old animie tv show called(ZOIDS) that was broadcasted by toonamie on cartoon network years ago. Its called a (WAR SHARK). That thing is huge and has not many hard to create details. Easy for me to creat. OH AND CHECK OUT LEGO ZERO'S SITE.
just wondering... how many bricks do people like you have??? and do you get outdoors too? anyway: superb creation. the colors are indeed kind of a silly combination. oh well, with mechs anything is possible. I think I will have a go on a (small) giant spaceship myself... this is a nice inspiration.
Dearest Mark, please, please send me instructions for this beast. I am currently looking at the pictures and taking detailed notes of all the parts used. I think I have some of the Bionicle pieces you used but I need to get some of those basketball hoops and trans green Duplo train tracks to finish out my parts list. And a note to Mr. Goldman...watch your back! Yeah, I think you can take Goldie right Mark? He's a punk anyway. Yeah. yeah.
What a great SHIP! very detailed and the angles are awesome. The pics and art backround really add to the story and overall greatness of this SHIP. Nice work.

Wow. Utterly wow. The dtails, the construction, the sheer size. The mech bay is my favorite part. It works well with the rest of the ship and is very functional. Unlike other ships this big though, you managed to pull it all together without making it boxy. I think you're also the only other person besides myself that integrated droid wheels into a large ship. Well done! 50/5 stars!
