While having a break on my Blacktron ship i started a new projct using LDD. The USCSS Nostromo from the movie ALien I. A spaceship with many crazy angles i thought which will be fun to handle - i thought ;-)....
If i calculated right it will be 89x56x25 studs or ca.70x44x20cm - so i would say a size to UCS models. At the moment i used about 4000 pieces and they getting more... Maybe i will do this ship in real bricks.

Here's one of many referenz pictures i found.
and so far am i...
The main engines are ready to fly.

You must be so patient to do this on LDD. I can only manage a few doodles. This will look amazing when it's finished. Hope your computer can handle all of those virtual bricks and keep going!
Thanks David for the kind words ;-)! Yes patient you need very much... sometimes you want to throw your computer through the room... But this is also a point on my mission (to don't do that) :-)! the different angles are somtimes really hard to handle-the balljoints are the hardest work to get them in position...Cause if you change the angle of 1 direction the 2nd and 3rd change to! For the front exhausts i needed 1 hour to get them nearly the same....!!! And i'm also excited if my computer run that many pieces.For now (4200 pieces) it need 1 1/2 hour to calculate the pieces... But i'm in hope!!!
