Hammerhead Assault Frigate WIP

Post by DarthPineapple on Sun Dec 20, 2009 6:03 pm



I'm building a large ship again, this time based upon the Hammerhead capital ship used by the Old Republic. The clone is just for scale, this ship isn't Minifig scale.

The frame looks good, DP, I hope the exterior will look as good. Wink

Thanks for the replies. I've added some plating to the bridge (the hammer part) and to the 'neck'. And yes Troopa Daisy I also really like the engines. Sadly those yellow pieces don't come in bley or any other grey color, only yellow and orange, which means I can't cover them up completely. I did put a 4x4 round plate to the back of the engine, followed by a 3x3 trans - light blue dish (don't have 4x4's Sad).

Maybe make the back part longer...the square part before the engines...should be longer, or else it looks funky. Razz

There's a fin between the 2 engines. It may look very square now, but there will be some sloped plating. Wink

This looks really good DP. I like the fact that it is an original MOC from the old republic

Uh no, this is not from the Old republic. I am making my own ship, based upon the Old Republic one.

Another update!



I lengthened the back and added some plates. Won't take long to complete anymore. It will be finished before Christmas! Smile

Some special facts:

- This is my largest creation to date, with a total lengths of about 70 studs, it beats out my previous largest by 20 studs.
- The total ship weighs over 1,2 kg already.
- I was originally planning on making a Star Forge model, but it didn't work out, so I started making a ship based on a Hammerhead, which is (sort of) related to the Star Forge. Razz

Heh, I took apart my UCS AT-ST & Vader's TIE for this, and maybe my AT-TE needs to go too. You may be surprised how big MOCs you can actually make when you take apart a few big sets.

This actually looks like one of those medical frigates to me. You know the ones from CW? Wink

Anyways, I think it does look better now that you lengthened the back, but is it just me, or are the engines wobbling a bit? Smile

They are attached to the ship by a rod and they are made out of technic links, so yeah. Razz

The ship really looks great so far, you just have to add a bit more colour.

Thanks for the replies. As for color, it will get some dark red markings, and a large Open Fleet symbol sticker. Anyway the large tail fin has been completed, and the part between the 'neck' and the tail fin, which is the hangar, has the sides added with hangar doors. Just some more sloped plating and it's done in time for Christmas! Smile
