If you're reading this, then you must have paid attention to the text of part one and are now looking at part two of my gallery featuring the Crystal Spark, my largest MOC ever! Let's continue with the photos, then.
About this creation
This is the other half of the bridge. It occurred to me after completing the model that I had mostly three of each interior feature while there were four crew members. I hadn't planned ahead that much, I guess...
Here's the captain, sitting in his swivelly chair. I put a lot of time into designing the captain's chair, as it's something of a centerpiece for the interior of the ship.
If you look closely, you'll see the captain waving at you from behind the window. This window is older than the ones in the middle corridor, so it was more blurry and dulled out the inside more.
This is about the only feature of the middle corridor- the way onto the ship! In previous models I had neglected to install a door, so I remembered to put in two this time to compensate.
This satellite was the first exterior feature I put onto the ship. It is on a long axle that lets it slide up and down the midsection of the ship, and it can swivel in all directions thanks to the ball-and-socket connection.
No ship is complete without missiles! I stashed mine between the wings, which is a new feature from previous designs.
When I built this ship, I wanted it to be something I could enjoy playing with as much as just looking at. I've entertained the thought of maybe doing a comic series featuring the ship, but you'll have to wait and see for that.
Well, that's everything I have to say on the Crystal Spark. Thank you for reading this 2-part series on the pride of my MOC collection. If I ever finish the other two "big ships" that I've been remodeling, I'll post them right up next to this one, so stay tuned!
