The EF76 Nebulon-B escort frigate was a 300-meter-long warship that was built by Kuat Drive Yards for use by the Imperial Navy, to protect convoys from Rebel starfighter actions. It was, however, used more famously by the Rebellion.
About this creation
The standard Nebulon-B frigate was armed with twelve turbolaser batteries, twelve laser cannons, and two tractor beam projectors. It was designed to carry twenty-four TIE series starfighters.
Escort frigates were often used to support larger capital ships, such as Imperial-class Star Destroyers and Rebel Mon Calamari Star Cruisers. The frigate was known and respected for its efficiency against fighters and bombers, and both sides preferred to use the Nebulon-B frigates in anti-fighter assignments.
The Nebulon-B was originally designed to protect Imperial convoys against Rebel starfighters. However, the Rebels were able to find other uses for the ships which took advantage of their sophisticated sensors and deep-space multifrequency antennas. Escort frigates were used as long-range scouts, search and rescue ships, or to relay information to command ships during battle. In small, shorthanded Rebel task forces, Nebulon-B frigates often served as the command ship.

This is probably my favorite lego nebulon-b model. Others are larger, but this one really captures every little detail. It also is to scale with my DP20 gunship. Very good job! (PS can you check out my own model of this ship?)
good job on this, i like nebulon-bs too XD lolz (see my stuff), its kinda rare to see a ship this small with so much detail. My only complaint is the stern section isnt shaped right (engine section) its like a lopsided diamond lolz. but somehow it still looks good lolz good job, keep up the good work
