Spock's Ship - "Jellyfish"

Spock's Ship from JJ Abrams' Star Trek reboot.

 

It's built to approximately minifig scale, and designed fairly closely to the prequel comic version of the ship, with some minor artistic license because the comic's pictures weren't adequate and the concept art is all quite conflicting.

 

The ship is a SHIP, measuring in at around 110 studs in length (just under 3 feet). Without the stand, it is 92 studs (around 30 inches) tall.

 

The stand is as robust as it is because so much of the weight of the ship is cantilevered. There is no photoshoppery involved, it really is supported entirely by the pillar at the front.

 

It is almost 100% tiled, with less than 10 studs exposed on the entire construction.

 

The project was started in late May, a few weeks after the movie was released. It took about 2.5 months to complete
