Minifig-scale Venator Bridge

Post by Oky Wan Kenobi on Thu Jul 15, 2010 8:57 pm

This is my fourth entry in the Eurobricks Community Star Wars Build (EBCSWB). High up on top of the right tower of the Venator there is the main bridge of the ship. On the roof it has scanners and other devices.








The top can be lifted up to look inside:




Jedi generals Koon and Kenobi are discussing war matters while watching the situation outside. The admiral approaches them to report the latest updates on the current battle.




Meanwhile pilots check the ship's systems and troopers are standing guard in the back of the room.




Down in the trenches, clones work relentlessly to keep things running.




Here are the minifigs I created for this MOC. The Admiral's design is based on that of Wullf Yularen.




You can find more pics in this Brickshelf folder.

Wow! I like Yularen, and that greebling on the top is just perfect. I had the same idea for a clone officer, it looks just like the show! Thumbs up

Love the inside a lot. And the Venator pilots are cool. Smile

However, I don't like how the sides are boring compared to the front and top. Wink

Maybe a SNOT floor would be good, and the bridge could be wider and taller. Other than that, it looks great! Wink Smile

I think it would look better with the pilots helmet fins sanded off because it would look more realistic. Pilot See, like that!

^ I'm pretty sure that Oky is a purist.

@Oky-Great job, I love all of the little details, but like TD said, it needs some SNOT.

Thanks for your comments. I thought about using tiles, but that would have been difficult around the trench where there are many wedges, but I suppose using SNOT might have worked, but then again, it would have been hard to pose all those figs. I think bl*c was talking about the officers, but as for the clone pilots, yes, I am purist and wont change them.
@ Troopa Daisy: Didn't you read the description? This is for a community build, so there were size limitations I had to keep. I tried to make it as accurate as possible within the 16x32 limit.

I don't really see anything interesting with this. For the inside, the controls are standard, and most of it is just normal bricks as floors (which is very boring). The outside is just walls, really. Greebs on the top are good, but overall it could use much more detail.

I kinda agree, the top looks very nice, but the rest is meh. The grey/bley mixing makes it even worse. You should also add tiling, especially to the plates on the front. They look odd next to the bricks.
