Escort ship

Post by BrickSyd » Sat Feb 13, 2010 1:36 pm

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to this short presentation of the Escort ship. The versatility of theses ships is mostly what make them so popular in the sector. They can be used for troops or material transport, can fly in space as well as on planet surface and they include decent weaponry.
Image


Here you can see the Noxarian Starship Fearless (NSS NF-I). This ship is owned by the Order of the Equinox. Every escort include multiple reactors and flight stabilizers that allow the ship to fly, of course, but also to stand still while in the air. The silver dish visible on the engine is the radar system.
Image


One pilot is required. There is storage in front of the ship for the pilot stuff. The stick on the left engine is the communication system.
Image


Cockpit.
The cockpit is large enough to fit heavy armored minifig. There is a small storage compartment behind the pilot.
Image


Cargo bay.
The cargo bay can be loaded with material or personnel.
Image


Cargo bay access.
Image


Side storage allow some extra material to be loaded.
Image


Landing gear operation.
Image


Combat mode.
Two Lx-2 laser cannons mounted on the cockpit wings are deployed. There is also two torpedoes on the wings.
Image


The cargo bay can carry up to six units.
Image


Escorts are modular ships. They consist of a small fighter (called Falcon), docked on a modular section. To detach the Falcon, additional landing gears are deployed from the module. The Falcon landing gear is retracted and the wings are deployed. Then, the Falcon is good to go, leaving the modular section on the ground. The module can then be used as a small outpost since communication and radar systems are presents.

That's it!

EPIC. I've never seen so much functionality compressed into that small a model. I especially like the landing gear.

Wow, awesome. Must cost a brikton as a Brikwars unit, though.

Very functional, very sleek, very awesome. Well done.

Love it!
Why you ask?
-Great Idea
-So much cool things inside.
-Holy Modularity!- I think is the best thing in Lego.
-Your troops looks like mine from Kurvinian army- they have the same torsos and colors. Maybe we should make an alliance?

:D

Nice BrickSyd. I like the fact you can make lots of the same unit from what you have to hand but still make them look good. That's always a smart move. The outpost module is a great idea. Drop and go. Nice mini-figs too.

I have one more type of module that belong to another faction and I'm working on a ship that can carry a Falcon. It can be used to launch an attack, hijack enemy modules or just to be launched as one big torpedo

Where can I see this Kurvinian army?

It's just too awesome. So many compartments and stuff. I can't find words. It's also some nice eye candy.
