[SHIP] The Kraken

Postby PurirideVry » Sun May 08, 2011 1:26 pm

So this is my first SHIP and one of my first space creations at all!
Inspired by some of the recent SHIP that have been finished recently, namely the Manticore and the Calamity Jane, I wanted to build my own. After researching SHIPs and concept art for awhile I came to the idea of building a vertical Alien vessel. So this still keeps to the over 100 stud standard, in fact unless you count the complete length of the tentacles base to the the very top of the antennae is almost exactly 100 studs.

Image

The SHIP has 2 lazar turrets, 2 mini hangars with small attack craft, 2 airlocks, 2 missile bays, and four decks, as well as the four tentacles. The ship is meant as a highly maneuverable battle ship that can snag other ships and crush them with the four strong tentacles.

Image

The attack craft are of a similar design. They're supposed to be extremely fast and maneuverable but lack strong armor or weaponry beside two melee tentacles.

Image

The SHIP has four detailed decks including a weapon control station, main bridge, stasis beds, and airlock chamber.

an excellent SHIP, wouldn't have known it was your first. The paneling is top notch (looks like that's your strong suit) and the inclusion of minifig details are good (mocpage link isn't working so I'm going off your WIP interior, which was quite impressive). Love the aliens taking a walk outside :) Super unique too, don't think I've ever seen a SHIP with tentacles before. keep practicing those greebles ;)

Thanks you guys! It seems like my intent to make a very different SHIP has worked!

It seems Mocpages is down right now. It wasn't working yesterday either.

Hello!

As I already told you on Eurobricks, I think this is a very original and inventive design. :)

Cheers,

A true ugly and cool design, ugly in respect of that I wouldn't buy a spaceship in that shape. But, the design looks authentic and that makes it a really fantastic moc, many nice details.

Nice work on that tentacles base, gives ideas to build a ship consisting out of inside out tires only...

Have you got the right topic? I have no idea what you're talking about.

I think that he is a spam bot. Just ignore it.

EDIT:Why don't we have someone who takes care of these things?
