An Australian deep space battleship/carrier capable of multiple roles as needed to defend the far spread of the Australian Galactic Federation. (188 studs long)
About this creation
It was a strange place for such an historic moment, but in 10120 AD, the PAX Humanica as devised by GAIA director P.Levens was ratified aboard this vessel, by the Emporer Phillip III of GAIA, Prime Minister Karen Phillips of AUS-Space, President Tanya Roberts of AM-Space, Ming Xia Ping Director of Galactic China, and Garek Mobasa of the New Afrikan League.
Dignitaries from around the galaxy sit aound an aussie mess-room dinning table signing the PAX Humanica, aboard the HMS Southern Cross.
After the second Alien war, Human factions faced off in several destructive engagements. It seemed a re-established ANZUS treaty was at loggerheads with Galactic China, while GAIA was busy mopping up Draggone rebels who refused to cease hostilities. The PAX Humanica may have seemed the unlikliest outcome of a such a time but ended up being the response to the sudden outbreak of the 3rd Alien War - touted by experts as a war with no end in sight. (It seemed the Draggone figured that while humans turned upon each other, victory would be swift.)
The key point to the agreement was that GAIA's template for division of military assets and chain of command be applied throughout all territories of the human race. As such, there would never be fear of civil war between human factions again, and all concentration could be turned to destroying the Draggone menace once and for all!
Wow,now that is very awesome!You have quite a style of your own with these ships of yours,I'm very fond of that.They are all very unusual and resemble actual real ships!Don't know how I missed this,keep it up man!

Dude! I mean, malaka! Your lull, if you had one, didn't last long.
Hahaha, yeh, I kind of chipped away on this over the course of a month. I no longer have the wish to just sit and build for hours, but I found by just permanently dedicating a room to Lego mess, I can still churn out stuff, if more slowly- but this was actually fun, I really thought I hadn't another in me. Cheers mangas!

Brilliant bit of work Parrington! Great details on the ship and a nice presentation to boot!
Thanx man, I'm satrting to consider a better camera, I think my cheapy is making life more difficult than need be, but I'm thrilled to hear to the presentation is pleasing, It took me a long while to get that up to scratch... Cheers mate...
Uber-awesome! What a beast. Nice job on the nose and ladar array on top. Look at these broadside cannons - hehe, death from down under! If my mind wasn´t so empty, I´d like to build something biggish, too. ~Cheers

Mate, this is sweet! It's not only massive, but superbly detailed as well. Glad to see that despite your moaning and groaning, you still pour your heart in to whatever you build. =P ~H
Hahaha, cheers buddy, groaning just comes with old age! Wait till I'm 60! LOL...

You really are the spaceship-which-looks-like-a-boat-at-micro-scale master ! And I love this giant array of radars which looks like a sail...
Haha, thanx mate, the sail look is EXACTLY what that radar array was about, together with that Trireme bow, and the triple deck long cannons (representing an oar look, ) I was going for an ultramodern space Trireme look! Cheers for looking mate.
Great stuff man, glad I can finally see all the pics of this beut. Man, I love the bow of the ship, that shape is fantastic. Glad to see you're still active. I don't know how you pump these giants out so fast, I have a ship I've been working on (off and on) for months now, and still it's not even close to being done.
Is it just me or are you trying to compensate for something (insert dastardly snicker here)! Feels strangely warm and gooey to comment again after such a long hiatus. By the way, did you steal that name from Robotech? Any hoot, she's quite a beast you got there no matter how you slice it. Nice work.
This is definitely one of the best ships I have seen. I think it's great that your space ships have retained the earth bound (water) ship's hull. If I had to choose a favorite part of this build it would have to be the unique details that really make it pop and instantly recognizable....such as the radars, comm towers, and the shield pieces used to create the ships ident. Bravo mate....BRAVO!
I'm sure the captain is crocodile dundee !!!..... hum ok i go out ..... frankly dude, your ships become beter and beter !!!! i really love this one... and more, there is always beautiful ladies in it !!!!

Some good ol' AUSSIE firepower here mate, nice work! Some interesting repetition of shapes all over, lots of ideas to steal from ;) Also that trans yellow window in the interior shot is wicked!
Bldy Oath mate! Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oi, oi, oi! LOL - And the site is running like lightning!
Well, apparently my comment got modded... >.>
However, that was a funny one because there were no pics. This is the serious one. Now that I see the pics, it is much more amazing than I could have pictured otherwise! You've outdone yourself big-time on this one, the whole thing is breathtaking, really. Great detail, and a creative integration of the center-line and broadside orientation of the guns!
Hahaha, thanx guys, this is a great embarrasment but I thank you for your humor. To anyone who visits, I am so sorry there is nothing as yet to view... But I am sure the problems will all pass by soon enough. Cheers to all the Lego faithful!
