It turned out fantastic. I feel like I've come to the end of a very long journey... well done!

WOW! :o This is amazing! Everything, form the main gun to the hangars to the observation and bridge to the engines is so well done and perfectly executed, it looks like a display model. My favorite feature (aside from the sheer scale) is the use of multiple circle forming elements and the rounded observation deck next to the main gun. And retroactively thanks for posting how you did the circular bridge deck, I would've asked.

I cannot tell a lie--the fighter bays are there because I thought it would be cool to have fighter bays. Practicality was never a real concern. :csmini:

This photo shows how the bridge is held together:

Aaah. Gotcha. Im glad to see that at least one other builder also is willing to use off-colored SNOT bricks on the inside. It gets frustrating trying to keep to only using gray hinges and mounts.


Yes... Two other non all same color brick using builders! :D I thought I was th only one!

That is freaking insane. I could not dream of building that. (partially because I don`t have the pieces (or the money to get them off of bricklink)
