DRK Phoenix (darkstorm empire)

Postby Darkstorm » Tue May 09, 2017 9:14 pm

This is the DRK Phoenix. The below is the first version, later versions with better guns and the finished version can be found later in this topic.
Enjoy! :omnom:

*the below is the original post*

I've been working on a new SHIP. It is only 94 studs long right now, but I am planning on making that bigger!

The bridge is in the back, because it is.

Only 31 inches so far... it should get bigger soon.  :wink:
Spoiler: show
That big size 8 gun on top is not my design, it's borrowed :(
I wish it was though- I plan to replace it with more weaponry  :whoelse: :studgod:

Nice use of tyres and wheels for the thrusters.

:warhead:

also, I like the design and the overall build, if I had enough spare plates I would also make one.

Can the gun aim upwards? Because on mine, it keeps flopping down and it's a bit annoying.

My plan is to add roughly 15-20 stud-length to the back, along with a large central engine (other than the current two), and to make the thin section underneath the huge gun's platform much thicker. More pics to come soon (once it's done (duh))

Nice SHIP!!
I like the use of the wheels for the thrusters, and the bridge looks sweet.
How long did this take you to build?

This took about two days of full-on building (excluding school hours). There's more than this now, I'm going to have to post an update soon. It's still not finished yet! :lol:

Alright, I think that my SHIP is *postable* at this point (finished to the point that it's not crap). I'll try to get pics up within the week (if not today).  :wink:

OK so I built this 14" gun, and mounted it on top, and was like " :fu:  :yuno:  :no:  :fist:
So I had to rework the top, and am adding more to the previous position the 8" gun was at. Should be done by tomorrow or the day after that.

HOOOLY CRAP the pic quality is bad this time (yes, it's usually bad) - more pics to come, they probably all suck. These pics were my hurried attempt to capture the essence of the creation.

Ok.
Here's the machine gun turret on the back.
Image
this is the engine/bridge section, revamped
Image
this is where I docked my shadow fighter.
Image
This is the top deck where soldiers can shoot with as much cover as possible.

this is the rocket launcher-
Image
This is a weapons storage
Image
This is a small scout drone, has a slightly different design than the previous model
Image
This is the part where the model can split in half (for portability)
Image

THE MAIN ATTRAKTION:
Image
SIZE 14 TAKITCAL HIGH ENERGY LASER!

it has massive damage, enough to wrek many ships to briks.

I love a ship with cover for infantry to shoot from  :belushi:
Also some nice shaping, and that is a large cannon.  :tiger:
