welcome ladies and gentlemen to the fourth installment of the SHIP WIP series!
Image
In this installment the rear lift has been recovered from the 1,0 version.
Image
another pic the lift has been widened and a pair of uav landing platforms are on the roof
Image
insert machinery noises here.
Image
its big (inb4 thats what she said)
Image
front view of the marlin escort gunship.
Image
for now the marlin is only armed with point defense clusters but i will add some railguns or a miniature hellbore
Image
just a little peek inside the hangar where a pair of unbuilt airsuperiorety buzzards will reside.
Image
to the rear is the bridge were the ship is piloted. not much there yet tho
Image
another look.
Image
engines for speed not done yet obviously.

Image
it opens for great justice.
Image
comparison between my WIP assault carrier with no name and the WIP marlin
Image
a top view of the marlin which curiously enough started life as a oneman speeder i kid you not.
Image
comparison with a minifig.
when these two are finished the AN will be a force to be reckoned with! :twisted:

I am agog with amazement, loving the Battlestar look of the front and the ribs on the side. Great work!

Great! I can't wait to see them in action.

Commander: Crap!
Private: We're being bombarded!
*explosions*
Guard at the door: Here they come!
*More explosions and gunfire*
*screams*
*radio static*
TRANSMISSION ENDED.

One question, Fredde.

Do you live outside of the US?

Because I really want to battle you.

Lovely ship! And an escort that fits the theme, I'm in awe. Great job. Nynäshamn... it's 400 kilometers from where I live, maybe... ;)

If nothing else it'll inspire me to dig out the boxes with my lego (left at the bottom of the heap after me moving to new place) and finish my ship. Also, I see now it needs an escort and some fighters... and an opponent.
