The Charon is a ship of the line developed as a joint project between the Tripartite Alliance. The prime principle of design is to bring maximum firepower to bear on a target while presenting the smallest profile in return. With this in mind, all of the main turrets can fire in the forward arc of the vessel, while presenting its thin, spearhead profile towards an enemy. This warship is 957.6 meters in length.
Technically, it was a test in building a mostly-hollow warship with no obvious "up" in terms of studs on the bricks. The forward hull was the funnest part to build, and relies on a series of hinges and self-supporting panels.
Have you thought of moving the turrets forward, the bridge to the middle, and then adding one or two turrets on the rear to defend against enemies attacking from that angle? What about anti-aircraft defenses? Or even weapons on the bottom to protect that angle as well? Very well done, I'm very impressed.
Wow wow wow !!!!! Looks dangerous and efficient !!! Solid and not so indestructible..... Pfffff really beautiful job. I love the "no stud apparent" for starship and your is just fantastic !!! When will you make bigger ????
It's even more amazing that at first look, I didn't see that it was digital! Even finer job! great build!
I like it

Wow Kelso, this is a great build. I really like how you... wait... what? This isn't Mark's? Why didn't anyone tell me?!!? Kidding dude, this thing is AMAZING! I love the sloped look of it! Can't wait to see more from you in the future! ~ Chris.
Yup, this is stunning. No doubt a winner. Great turrets and a real futuristic sleek look to it. The nose, the engines the fins, it's just bladdy great. You couldn't do me a favor and see what you think of
