More Progress:
Image

(ignore the box under the rear section, and the poor photography, the connection isn't strong
enough yet and needs support and this was taken with my ipod as my camera's battery just died)

Also, if you're wondering where that chair is going to be or what it is, it is one of the two
work/entertainment stations located in each cabin (2 cabins=four bunks) on either side. It
will be covered by a large windowpane. Also the ship isn't going to be lopsided, so there
will be another engine on the closer side of the same design as the far one. If you have good
vision, you may have spotted the diagonal piece directly underneath the previously mentioned
cabins. This is going to be the boarding/cargo ramp.

EDIT: More Progress on back and better picture:
Image

Basically all I have to do now, is finish the bottom of the rear section, make panelling for
the nose, and finish the roof off. I also may try to make the inside more accessible when
the rest is done.

Tell me if you like the engine design and if not, how I can improve it.

Also here is one of the two small air scooters stored in the cargo hold:

2nd EDIT: here is a pic on the progress of the very front, keep in mind that this
design is not even completed, much less final.

Also I am thinking about working on a stand so I can better reach the underside.

Comments and criticisms welcome!

Comments:

-love the use of the steering wheels on the bike!

Criticisms:
-(not really a criticism, more of a sugestion) I want to see a minifig on this, just to see how it looks.

Here's a picture of the scooter sporting minifig:

Only one leg (of course) can fit on the scooter at a time and the other simply hangs off.

If you can't figure out how to build it yourself (which I bet you can) I can post an exploded view


I bet you couldn't guess that I have a dog. He he....

I love this thing! I must build one... It will go great with my current MOC... (hint hint)

Oh, and what breed is your dog?

Looking forward to seeing that Moc! My dog is a Labrador. I'd love to see what you use the scooter for. Thanks again!

You guy's will be waiting for a while before the MOC actually gets posted... I'm a little short on money, and I need the Mill. Falc. to get a good start. I also need about $80 for my pick a brick order. So wait a few months, then she'll be ready. ;)

I've added more to the interior (including a "refresher") and completely reworked the front. More pictures coming soon.

Very soon! However there are pieces I need for the nose (these ones) of which I know that I have exactly four but can only find three of (arrg!) On a positive note, the landing gear is coming along nicely, though I'm still debating on whether to make it look pretty or actually function.
