A sample section of the Ember Rayne's hull and an experiment in greebling.
About this creation
This MOC consists of a series of linked nine 8 stud long hull sections (and one 2 wide spacer), each with different greebling. It is 10 bricks in hight - the same as a single deck on the Ember Rayne. There are not too many parts of the ship that are even close to this long without changing shape or angle, so most sections using this sort of wall-set-in -a-sea-of-greebles design will be much shorter in length. There are many sections, though, that are on removable mission modules, which will be hidden from view except when one of those sections is removed. Also, on the actual ship, I will put some more thought into placement of the individual sections, so it won't look as ad hoc as this sample.

Here are two distance shots showing the entire hull section from slightly tilted angles. Since this section is composed of several 8 wide parts, some of the details in the top and bottom “lips” are repeated. This standardization also helps with the idea that the entire ship contains “nodes” of repeated machinery – power repeaters or something.

This series of images moves step by step from one end of the hull section to the other. The word “hi” on the first end is an illustration of hull markings, which will actually most often be numbering on the side of mission module sections – in the scheme “2-1”, for example – spanning two 8 stud wide sections. The last end shows a typical round porthole. Many crew quarter's sections will have windows like this.

Next we have a group of shots taken to show under the “lip” in the top part of the hull. The center section has spot-lights to help illuminate whatever someone might be looking at through the large, sloped window – this hull section is most likely to be used near a docking bay as a part of a control room.

Opposite the top areas are the bottom areas! The second image is again near that sloped window, and has a break in the “lip” of greebling so that whoever is looking through the window has a cleared view below.

This is the fairly simple underside, which sports some SNOT in order to make it a little smoother to contrast the rough texture of the greebling along the sides. Just past this smooth part, though, will be a maze of piping, landing gear, and other undersidey goodness.

A picture of the inside portion of the round porthole. It looks better from the outside.

This simple cross pin and tiled tab design is the connector structure for the hull. A set like this exists for each 8 wide section of the hull, and is designed to slide snugly into the interior sections of the ship. Just below this you can see the SNOT used on the underside of the hull.

Wow. This looks good. Any estimates on cost yet? Or have you already all the pieces? Either way, great build so far. We will watch your career with great interest.
