About this creation

Details











Description


" Long struggling with a reputation for being the ugly duckling of the Caldari ship repertoire, the Hookbill recently got a new lease on life, being upgraded from a routine patrol vessel into a fleet-standard frigate. With the advancements brought on by the upgrade, the time is nigh for this little slugger to prove itself on battlefields throughout Caldari space and beyond.This custom orange marked issue is part of a bountyhunter squadron looking for ISK in every corner of new Eden. Particularly efficient with missiles, this frigate is a long distance fighter: blazing away whilst bombarding enemies with a barrage of missiles, wether it be thermal, EM, explosive or kinetic damage."

Thanks Isaiah, this color scheme is custom. The original consists of grays and dark blue patterns. The orange adds a nice contrast with the overall gray layout. The process from sketch to build and edit took roughly two and a half weeks. I had an iteration while building having to fortify the frame as the ship was getting heavier. All in time for SHIPtember ;)
Quoting Isaiah Marc This creation is really well done, I love space ships, and this design is by far one of my favorites. I love the color as well, Excellent photography. How long did it take you to build?

Thanks Tim, it wasnt really my intention finishing this baby this month. But when I realized it could well be a 100+ studs.. I thought I might as well join in on the party that is SHIPtember ;) Had to rebuild once using a better framework, guess that was a learning point. When things get heavy..better have some solid tech inside.. Making the angles work was fun and challenging as well. But you know all about that ;) Glad you were able to make it in time. The Astraeus is massive!
Quoting Tim C Man, this turned out so awesome, Pico! I love the shaping of it, and that you used plates for the shaping. It is not an easy task and you pulled it off with a beauty that one can only find on your page. Great work on the coloring and, of course, you photo editing abilities are unmatched. Really nice work.

Hey Mike, the Hookbill is a Caldari frigate from the EVE universe (mmo). Their ships are edgy, unconventional and have always had my interest when playing. See http://goo.gl/7MY6qN for some examples. Never say never though, I didn't expect to have this SHIP standing when I revived my Lego building ambitions last year. Thanks :)
Quoting Mike Johnson Where do you come with these beauties? Between the sheer amount of detail combined with the unorthodox hull designs you create I dare say you are at a level that I shall never obtain. Bravo sir, bravo!

Thanks Wesley, the stand you're seeing is for display purpose. The frigate actually is a space-only spaceship. It remains in space, hops from system to system and docks at stations and hubs. Therefor it has no known landing gear! Ingame the ship has no real cockpit. The capsuleer flying it docks a small capsule into the ship and uses the capsule as a taxi to go between ship and station. Would be a challenge to create a landing gear for this though..ship weighs a ton :P
Quoting Wesley Kreiss This one is Epic (and nice to include specs)! Is that a pic of optional landing gear? Cool. I always like to see spacecraft with working landing gear, as I feel thats an important detail. Your ships are awesome.

Yup, that's how Caldari Navy feels about it anyway.. I found it's one of the coolest designs. Glad you share that feeling, thank you.
Quoting Grand Admiral Thrawn Ugly duckling? I think not, its a beautiful design! I really like the shape and use of parts and greebling. Fantastic job!
 I made it 
  October 3, 2014
Thank you! The ship originates from online mmo EVE. Ingame the capsuleer flies the ship and hops from station to station, system to system and actually never leaves space. I guess that's why it isn't limited to conventional shapes with landing gears of sorts. But I guess that missile barrage would work either way ;) You just dock around anywhere in space
Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head Wow, super cool ship. It looks like it would difficult to land in a pinch, but I imagine it could created a landing area with all of its crazy missiles. The ship for some reason reminds of a heavily armed train folded like origami into a space ship. Definitely a cool and unique design.

Quoting Stephan N I was allowed to examine the individual building steps. And I'm fascinated with what you prezision this ship have built based on the template. It corresponds to the template to 100 percent. The ship as such looks absolutely gigantic, it looks heavily armored and ready for big battles. For me, a particular highlight is the fine textures. A Unique ship Pico. Hats off
