I had a thread on this in the old forum, although I don't remember when I last updated it. Since this is an ongoing project, I'm starting a new one.
The Manticore is my third SHIP. It's a war ship centered around a gigantic weapon. The main weapon is loosely inspired by a ship from an old computer game, and so I've named this ship after it. The ship in the computer game was in turn named after a mythological monster with the body of a lion and the head of a human. It seemed like an appropriate name for a ship that is bristling with weapons.
Here's the latest WIP photo. I've made substantial progress since I took this picture. The port side (which is largely missing in this photo) has now caught up with the starboard side.
Construction is about half done now. If I remain true to my sketch, the ship will be about 190 studs long when complete. I started this project nearly 4 months ago, so I don't expect to finish it any time in the immediate future.
