Well, times got slow. Not much to the EVE Online Reaper other then it is crazy to order the parts for it unless I dedicate it all to the cause. The Y8 Mining Ship is a level all on its own.
I have been feeling the UCS YT-1300 needs a playmate. And I happened to have a UCS Star Destroyer boxed up. So I am planning on using it to build a large ship. What other then one of my other favorite ships known as the VT-49 Decimator, kind of like the Empire's version of the Millennium Falcon. My second favorite ship from the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies next to the Y8.
An example of it is on the main photo here for reference. Anything else you can easily google or go to the Star Wars wiki page. The ship is roughly 4 meters longer then the YT-1300, and I am using that ship there as a reference while I build.
5MAY14- Made a skeleton. I usually do something like this so I get an idea how big it would be and how to measure what I want.
9MAY14- Started making a structure for the main room. Vader is happy...
10MAY14- The main deck interior structure is about complete. Just need to strengthen the rooms together and put the walls in-between them. The cockpit will be later and be able to be pulled off the top to reveal the room underneath it.
26MAY14- So work has been taking over my life leaving me with not a lot of major building. I have been focusing on the main interior and the underside. Mostly beefing up the strength down there. I also added a cargo hold under the middle room with dual cargo doors connecting them. Last but not least was the landing gear. I just did something simple like the Millennium Falcon. It might become too big to easily swoosh, but it would be easier than the MF. I also reorganized my room for bigger floor space. It was getting cramped... and the Yacht was sacrificed for more pieces.

Looks a little big. Isn't this thing only 38 meters long?
Actually that is 3 and a bit X-Wings
My measurements mostly were based on next to the Millennium Falcon after seeing them along side each other back playing Star Wars Galaxies. Other then research outside of that game, I did not really heavily follow stuff outside due to many conflicting numbers.
This project has since last update fallen into very dark times and has since helped with building other projects that thanks to other hobbies aside from Lego (and work...). I have not had much time to actually update anything on here though. But I might someday.
