JHv-21 'Hwuing Nehj'

The JHv-21 is the last in a long line of heavy freighters from the JapanSpace Inc. Shipyards. It's cargo capacity is many times that of an average freighter, and it's speed is near the same. This particular ship, the 'Hwuing Nehj', is configured for carrying metallic ore.

I'm actually really enjoying MicroSpace now, and one day when I was browsing ToyBrickBrigade (a BL store), the shape, color, and size of this ship all just popped into my head. I got a bunch of hinge plates, SNOT bricks, and some lime, and when the order arrived it was done within a day. You can see it's really progressed from it's original WIP form.

During the photoshoot, my cult unexpectedly hopped up onto the workbench and intruded rudely to sniff my ship, ruining a perfect shot.

That's all, folks! Questions? Comments? Suggestions?

Give us pictures of your cult.

The ship, it has some good details, but it looks like a box with stickers.

I think that's the point. The shipping company can't afford anything more elaborate.

Nice ship X, does it have weapons or is it just a big crate?

Ooh, a hexagon. Very nice.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

Yes, hexagons FTW!

And yeah, the stickers are official TLC, from Exo-Crap sets.

I'd like to see a row of these escorted by a pair of fighters each. Then I'll warp in some pirate raiders and BLAM! Instant epic.

Do it UP!

And this thing is awesome Dr. X. I like the idea behind it and I love ugly colors that don't really go together.

This is MicroSpace. It's not minifig scale.

So there's anywhere from hundreds to thousands of people in that thing. Sweet. Microscale is pretty cool. I could dig it. Problem is that it's space combat in a 2D format. Someday we'll have holograms that'll allow us to have realistic space battles, where there really is no up and down.
