Post your FINISHED SHIPs here.
Include one photo with your SHIP's longest axis along the horizontal, with the front pointing to the RIGHT (point ----> way) - so we can put together the uber SHIPtember 'schematic' poster. This can be a side angle, or top angle, or ... bottom angle if you so wish ;)
Whatever you think is bested.

(like Luke's below - AND a high contrast background would also help for cropping purposes...)

As well as any other photos/videos you might have of your SHIP to show off (as this is probably where the Judges will troll through at some point).

When posting also include fun vitals like:

SHIP name:
Final SHIP length:
Short SHIP Bio (all good SHIPs need a good story):
Number of SHIPs you have built in your life (I bet someone that number of SHIPs built will have no bearing on awesomeness of said SHIPs).

Please tag ALL photos with: "SHIPtember"

SHIP name: U.S.S. Ethan Allen
Final SHIP length: 111 studs.
Short SHIP Bio (all good SHIPs need a good story): //logentry

Almost one hundred years after the most devastating war in universe history, another war has been declared. The United States has gone through 2 recessions since the War of the Galaxies (3163-3165 a.d.), due to the fluctuating economy because of the war costs, but it managed to come back through both, surviving, if not thriving. I'm Captain Allen, of the U.S.S. Ethan Allen, and appropriate name I believe. I'm not quite sure who Ethan Allen was, but he was a famous historical character sometime during the Revolutionary War. I've been given permission to search out and destroy all enemy vessels, which isn't hard considering my weaponry. I have a fearsome array. I am the only captain of the entire fleet who is capable of running this ship, deteriorating though it may be. Sadly, many people are claiming it's "unfit to fight". It may be discoloring and aging, but it's still got a lot of fight. I would know, I'm the captain! My crew and I are determined to win this war for America, and like the Marines say, we are "Semper Fidelis", or Always Faithful."

~ Captain Robert Allen


A year later, the Ethan Allen was scrapped and the captain and crew disappeared. They couldn't bear the scrapping of their beloved ship, and even when it was being ripped apart they still loudly protested that it was still very serviceable. They left and haven't been seen since. It's believed they became pirates in some far galaxy. Wherever they are, I wish them all well.

~ Joseph Allen, son of Captain Robert Allen.

SHIP Bio: The CIS developed this ship later on in the Clone Wars to transport Super Battle Droids across planets quickly. It not only took the Droids, but had storage capacity for ammunition and fuel for the front-line. Unfortunately for the Federation, they were put into service so late on that they barely saw any action before the end of the war. In the years that followed they were either cannibalized by pirates and sold in separate parts or taken by companies as part of freighter fleets.

T.S.S. Skipjack, Unitron Light Escort Frigate

Length: 108 studs

United Terran Space Force Dorado class (refit) long-range escort frigate T.S.S. Skipjack

As part of the Space Defense Force’s Fleet Modernization Project, the remaining ex-Futuron PTY-51 Dorado-class escort/patrol frigates were extensively overhauled to extend service life. Upgrades including a redesigned bridge module, extended crew space, a new drive assembly, and upgraded sensor package significantly expanded the ships’ operational range as well as improving its fighting ability. PTY-5171, the TSS Skipjack, was the second ship of the class to undergo refitting. Though lightly armed, the fast Dorado class is more than a match for any typical pirate vessel.

Short Bio

When the human race went to Alpha Centauri in the year 2378 a peaceful settlement was build. They all lived in peace until the Darterians ( a robot race ) arrived and changed their lives forever. In the years to come humans lived in hidden homes to hide themselves from the ruthless robot race until a small group rebelled. The rebels fled to a nearby star system to build a weapon so magnificent they could attack their suppressors and strike back. They called it "Proteus" ....

Technical data

The Proteus is a heavy gunship class.

6 dual ion guns
2 dual short range defense guns
70 missile launcher tubes
1 railgun capable of launching "moonkiller" projectiles

28 fighter launch bays
4 shuttle launch bays
2 big hangars

630 meters long
65 meters wide

Length: 120 STUDS without the antennas in front and back.

This is my second SHIP build. The first one was called the Interstellar Transport Ship ITS. Both in micro scale.

This ship was build after Red Spacecat told me to give it a try. Normally I prefer building in mini fig scale.

I was told about SHIPtember and want to participate. I hope you guys like it ....

Leviathan by ted @ndes

Excerpt from “Unexplained Mysteries of Deep Space, Vol. XII”:

“… At the time of construction, the Leviathan was considered an engineering marvel. Much has been written about its technical prowess that gave it superiority in countless battles during the Third Galactic War. However, much less is known about the mysterious circumstances surrounding the Leviathan’s sudden disappearance.

Sometime after the Battle of Delta Cygni, Capt. Ezra Blackthorn reported that they had encountered a strange, green-glowing orb during a deep-space patrol. It emitted immeasurable amounts of energy. Capt. Blackthorn felt that if they could find a way for the Leviathan to harness that energy, the ship’s offensive and defensive power would be insurmountable and they could bring about a swift end to the war… The results of those efforts are uncertain. The last known communication received from the Leviathan was that they had successfully coupled the orb to the power-core, and that they were routing its power to all systems…”

Errant Venture - ToroLUG SHIPtember Build

The Errant Venture was an Imperial II-class Star Destroyer captured by the smuggler Booster Terrik. Originally commissioned into the Imperial Navy as the Virulence, under Terrik's ownership she became a sort of mobile shadowport, and was for many decades the only privately-owned Imperial- or Imperial II-class Star Destroyer in the known galaxy, distinguished by its unusual red coloring.


Built by ToroLUG at SW Days @ LDC in Toronto, this might not be the biggest ship built studwise, but at 102 studs long, it's the longest physical SHIP, ... at roughly 25 feet long XD
It's built entirely out of the squishy bricks from kids play area.

FB 21 - Freight Class Botany

After the first experiments on Terranova, they reached their goal to raise plants successfully. The European Defence Alliance (EDA) wanted to force populating the planet. Time was short, because the conditions on earth were getting worse every day. So they decided to transport grown-up trees to Terranova for producing oxygen as fast as they could. The adapted Freighter Class was engineered and after rooting out some of the last trees on earth, an armada of freighters started their way into the new world.

N-Class A.04 "school carrier"

Length : 1.1 km
Weapons : none
Crew : 400 + 500 students.
Propulsion : huge main thruster sufficient for it cruising speed, 4Rocket thrusters for an emergency boost, 2 additionnal thrusters mainly used for agility, afterburner system for all of them. with all of them at full thrust, it can maintain a speed of more than 1km/s for several hours.
Jump drive: internal Jump system, allowing it to jump to a distance of 100 LY max.
Features : 3 docks for cruisers, huge hangar for 5 to 10 frigates, maintenance bay, An agile arm with a claw to recover wrecks.

This carrier is an old class exploration carrier converted into a Flying Academy.
It's the most prestigious academy of the federation and a very expensive one, with only 500 students living there 8 months a year, really exploring the galaxy while studying.

It's equipped with 3 cruiser sizes ship that can dock on it side;
The yellow one is the Transport ship of the school, nicknamed the "Yellow bus". It can carry up to 600 people + supplies.
The blue one is a recon cruiser, unarmed but very hard to detect as it carry a camouflage module and it's equipped with a lot of different sensors.
The red one is a Battle Cruiser, Not a very well armored ship but very fast and agile, and equipped with 4 deadly triple-canon turrets and a big railgun on it center, wich can only fire straight forward but can deal a lot of damage.

In addition to these 3 cruisers it carry 5 frigate, 2 yellow bombers and 3 battle frigates

The carrier itself isn't armed and only one of it side is armored, so in case of battle it commander have to be very skilled to keep it under fire from the right side at any moment.
For that it can rely on it 2 wing thrusters wich help it be the most agile ship of this size. plus in battle condition it 1km/s top speed also makes it one of the fastest.

Name: The Nolan
Length: 129 studs
Weight: 10 lbs.
# of SHIPs: 1

The Nolan - sideview

The Nolan is an Apollo-Class science / exploration vessel from the Krakozhian system of planets. Captain Josh Baskin keeps to the ships schedule, as it travels through space. A large team of scientists make their home of the vessel, tasked to study the area known as Perdition in the system, looking for various unknown planets and phenomena.

The science staff make use of three types of vehicles to get a closer look at some other their subjects: larger vessels known as ‘Woody’s’ contain small research stations for extended stays on the surface; short range transports, called ‘short stops’, allow teams to enter the atmosphere of new-found planets; small lifeboats are also available for emergency getaways.

Since the Nolan is away for often years at a time, the vessel utilizes an energy-saving circular wave propulsion system to move it through space. This allows for stability in flight and ease of maneuverability.

As the Krakozhian system is a peaceful place, the Nolan has no weaponry adorning its hull.

This was a lot of fun to figure out and build. I was hoping for a challenge such as this, so I am grateful for the opportunity to build it. ‘Hanks’ for the memories!

UEA Columbia (BCVF-22)

The second Washington-class battle carrier to be commissioned by the United Earth Alliance Navy, The UEA Columbia entered service in 2237 and serves as flagship of Carrier Strike Group 4 based at UEA Third Fleet Headquarters, Enif Station, Epsilon Pegasi star system. Her hull classification BCVF indicates battle carrier, fusion-powered. The Columbia is named in honor of the United States NASA space shuttle orbiter Columbia OV-102.

The Washington-class combines the roles of carrier and battleship and was developed as a response to the limitations in direct engagment firepower observed in the Challenger-class carrier. The Washington-class is able to engage enemy forces directly with superior firepower, eliminating the need for escorts to maintain close proximity defense of the vessel in most combat situations. This ability effectively allows escorts to deploy further away from the vessel, greatly increasing the strike group's effective area of operations within a star system.

SHIPtember PEA Shooter by LegoSamBo

The Space Police were realising they were losing the battle against the increasing threat of the Blacktron forces. The SP assembled a small team of elite space commandos who's job was to quickly board and take control of Blacktron ships and small installations. In order to accomplish this, a specialised ship needed to be constructed. This is that ship.

Code named PEA Shooter due to it's highly focused weaponry which is designed to punch a small hole in the heavily armoured hulls of enemy ships and smaller space stations. Its prime function is to warp in at extreme speeds, blow a hole in the hull of a ship, with the commandos then flying in with their jetpacks and quickly over-powering the bridge of the enemy ship. The weaponry is set to forward firing only, meaning it requires escorts if it encounters multiple enemy craft.

Powered by two massive warp drives, this ship is capable of reaching speeds of over 8x the speed of light. For non-warp flight and maneuvering, it also has 4 large combustion rocket boosters. These two engine types enable the PEA Shooter to warp in from outside of sensor range and have the commandos board the target ship before the enemy have time to react.

Here are a few other unedited photos:

Yaguchi-class Siege Cruiser

The Yaguchi is a Japanese-made cruiser designed to master the galactic battlefield. At over 400m in length, the ship is armed with several conventional ship-to-ship weapons able to outgun most capital ships. The real sting in it's tail comes from the Starscorn-class Siege Cannon, a dual-barrelled, fixed-fire rail cannon which, when charged and in adequate range can punch through the armour of the most hardy opposition ships and stations. In a synchronous orbit, the cannon can even precision target planetary opposition with devastating effect.

Although deadly and dangerous, the Yaguchi (roughly translated to 'Arrow Mouth') is very expensive to purchase and maintain. It's many weapons require tonnes of ammunition and fuel to operate for an extended period. It also requires outside protection from enemy snubfighters and bombers, armed with only nominal AA weaponry.

Length: 404m
Crew: 200, including marinces.
Role: Siege, ship-to-ship, battleship escort.
2 x Dual STS Cannons
2 x Armour-Piercing Plasma Cannons
2 x 'Longshot' Frag Cannons.
2 x AA-Ion turrets
1 x 'Starscorn' Siege Cannon, fixed.

The Terran-Zhikan War is now into its 10th year. As more and more heavy naval units are drawn to the warzone at the Border, the Terran Empire needed replacement units to police the Core Systems, as well as defending against strategic “terror” strikes by the enemy.

The Fire Drake Class was developed as a fast response light carrier, used for system defense and patrol within the Empire Core. Each carrier has a complement of 20 Fire Wasp Starfighters and is heavily armed, to be able to engage enemy Capital Ships on its own.

The Fire Drakes are produced by Shenzhen Space Industries from orbiting shipyards around their Core World Neo-China, the same manufacturer of the Fire Wasp Starfighters.

Poster worthy photo:
The HORIZON (SHIP-Tember) by Blackout (Kylie)

Being nearly the largest vessel in the fleet holding position at a planetary defense station, the Horizon Is a combat ready vessel ready to deploy smaller vessels to defend the UIP's. (United Interstellar Planets) It among many other vessels hold the defenses from all Aliens and Humans looking to destroy them. The Horizon was first put into service in 2186 as the very first of its design and structure. Since that time the Horizon has fended off 7 attacks on the Planets. This is a vessel that will go down fighting!

Also, I realize that this is completely digital and SHIP-Tember is all about building in real bricks... All I have to say is whether its built in real bricks or not wasn't going to stop me from a challenge I saw. ;) I know it doesn't qualify in the contest. But being one of the few people using LDD for this (If not the only person).. I think that says something right? :D ..This has been one of my most challenging builds! And I love etttttttttttt. Its like 3 feet long :DDDDDD My biggest ship EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Any and all feedback is welcome! :)

Btw.. I've built somewhere around 20 ships in my lifetime. Most while I was younger and most I have little to no memory of or pictures of.. /: ....

Steam Punk Ashigaru
125 studs length
SHIPs: 2

Steam Punk Ashigaru

Built from the Yokosuka naval shipyard in the early part of the the 19th century and successor to the Katsuragi-class corvette, the Ashigaru was a combined wind & steam propelled warship whose bronze-steel hull protected its undersides and was manned by a small platoon of experienced battle-hardened samurai.

The ship was designed for fast rapid deployment, reconnaisance, raid missions and was equipped with ten medium range cannons for main firepower. During bombing raids it used two depth charge ramps near the bow on both sides of the ship that can deliver explosive barrel charges as well as rock battery at the stern that can inflict severe damage to anything that's underneath it. Wing flyers are deployed for short recon around the ship and at random times to watch for enemies that might try a sneak attack.

Leopard class destroyer
Length: 150 studs
Ships built: 6

The Leopard-class destroyer is the T'borek Heirarchy's smallest and most numerous ship of the line. It is heavily armed and armored and capable of prolonged firefights. While it is not as well armored or shielded as the Jaguard-class battlecruiser, the Leopard is a lot more agile. Armed with a spine-mounted Hellbore cannon capable of extreme long distance engagement and three dual-turreted plasma cannons with excellent firing arcs, these warships punch well above their weight class and are dangerous opponents at any range.

Improved AI technology and automation allowed the Blacktron fleet to use smaller, more efficient ships with greater firepower even than the relatively ancient flagship, the Blacktron II. A crew of less than a dozen, including two fighter pilots, flying in the new Blacktron frigate, could strike fear into the hearts of far larger ships and small merchant fleets. Active shields plus armour plating renders it nearly impenetrable to all but the toughest weapons.

Name: IHS Rocktopula
Length: 155 studs
Number of SHIPs built (lifetime): 1

The IHS Rocktopula was built in 3853 by the Indi Halton Space Hotel and Cruise Lines to travel at non-relativistic speeds between planets and moons in the Sigma Orionis system. It has a capacity of 1400 passengers and 600 crew. It is a luxury liner, with various entertainment and activity rooms along the central corridor, and front sections. Passengers can dine at one of luxury 10 restaurants, gamble their intergalactic credits at the casino, and partake in zero-G squash, zero-G laser tag and other sporting activities. Passengers are also able to take advantage of the Spa to rejuvenate, as well as slow-sleep beds for reduced aging on longer cruises. Two observation towers adorn the mid-section of the ship for passengers to take in interstellar and planetary sights.

The liner is 1550 metres long, and has a top speed of 2500 kilometres per second. It has 3 main docking ports: one opening into the front reception area where guests arrive, and two along the midsection for loading supplies and crew.

The liner is rated 4 stars by Intergalatic Cruising Monthly.

Designed to fit the biggest energy cannon into a narrow frigate body, the energy beam directors ended up looking like a big claw - hence the name. Long range beam guidance is assisted by 2 retractable sensor array.

Additional armaments include 4 retractable anti-fighter gun turrets, and 2 missile+decoy turrets.

Two wrap generators allow long range wrap travel when expended, and can be fully retracted to reduce frontal profile.


LEGO talk:

First time building a ship this big, and it was harder than expected. Ship was build into 3 sections for easier transport. Used many hinges but nothing too tricky. Warp arms used warm gear + bevel gears, similar to the wings in a X-Wing set. I am not a big fan of a bridge tower, but the the burger bridge was too good to throw away.

Opening main gun is inspired by Macross etc. Retractable warp wing inspired by Argonaut from Heroic Age anime.

Swoosh is no problem. And I need a better camera that works with in-door light.

Name: Guthlac
Type: Colony ship
Length: 129 studs
Crew: 144 000
Lifetime SHIP number: 1




Backstory takes the ship's name from Anglo-Saxon poetry and combines it with the history of the British "Pilgrims" coming to America. All the Earth is united in error under a sensual pagan church and becoming hostile. A portion of remaining Puritan Separatists construct an experimental ship and set out on a course guided by faith alone, aiming to create a shining example of freedom and prosperity on a more friendly heavenly body.

Rather than bending space or some such technique, the engines overcome the problems of faster-than-light travel in a novel way. They emit gravitational pulses in patterns amounting to a language which simply rewrites a particle's kinetic state. As a weapon, they can deflect incoming projectiles and bat assailants aside with a mere word. This uses comparatively little energy and sounds ridiculously overpowered - almost miraculous - but is greatly limited by the speed of the onboard processors, and maneuvers are limited by the precision of their timing, which is necessary to hold the whole ship together. To save processing power, objects and personnel within the hull use more conventional means of movement. With a course known only to God, and possible pursuit from Earth, the colonists will have to rely on divine providence to make it through.

Build notes: Nearly as solid as a...Rock. The construction is all one piece, basically a two-sided brick sandwich across a double-spine of Technic beams, all held in place by the friction of plus-rods jammed inside the standard tubes on the undersides of all the bricks, and reinforced by plates on every exposed surface. Used up all my 4-stud rods and more than half of my 2-studs. As you can see in the video, its integrity is unquestionable. No play features, other than flying it around carelessly and smacking other objects with it!

THE Lincoln (final, side) by Arkimedes


THE Lincoln (final) by Arkimedes

THE Lincoln carries in it the Lincoln Memorial from planet Earth. A partial replica of the Reflecting Pool is also maintained. Along with this national monument is a large supply of gold and related treasures. (It's currently unknown as to why gold is kept along-side the Lincoln Memorial.)

THE Lincoln (mid-section interior) by Arkimedes

To protect these treasure, THE Lincoln is armed with 6 large scale gatling guns, 6 laser batteries, and an unknown weapons platform known to have 2 mobile weapons systems on both port and starboard sides. Each of the 4 mobile weapons systems can cover an arc of at least 100 degrees.

Mysterious Weapons Platform by Arkimedes

In addition to the external weapons, THE Lincoln has launch bays for 6 Unnecessarily Large, Anthropomorphized, Robotic Defense Units, or ULA-RDUs for short. Though these units are not short, having a height that exceeds that of the Lincoln Memorial they protect.

Unnecessarily Large, Anthropomorphized, Robotic Defense Units... Check by Arkimedes

(Based on the size of the Lincoln Memorial, 1 Stud would be approximately 20 feet, bringing the ship to a length of about 2300 feet. The final SHIP length of 114+ Studs does not include the science fiction-colored thruster exhaust from any of the main thruster units, nor the forward antenna array. They would add an additional 13 Studs or 260 feet - just under 1/2 mile.)

Coming in at roughly 250 studs--it's taller than me and almost touches the ceiling when standing up.

Is it swooshable? Well, you can pick it up with 2 hands and move it around. It needs some reinforcing as I found out when I put it on the table.

I had 3 criteria going into Shiptember--

1--had to carry CS ships
2--had to use parts from that era
3--no bricklink orders (or other purchases)--only using parts from my existing collection

1 was taken care of
2 was mostly ignored
3 was tough but I did it

This past month my son was in school for the first time and started coming home with germs and such, so this past week we've been having fun with that. Now the bugs have taken up residence in me so I'm not putting any more time into this for the competition. I may improve/add details later for shows and such, but this is it for now.

SAFS P-Boat Banana Hammock 'Tintin'

Name: SAFS P-Boat Banana Hammock 'Tintin'
Length: 105 Studs
SHIPs built: uno

With the creation of One of Pluto, the Moon was no longer entirely safe for either SDR or IMA forces. Helium-3 mining outposts were all but abandoned, and only the the most foolhardy pirates would raid the outposts looking for fuel and supplies. As a result there was a sudden need for Helium-3 and Deuterium resources for both sides of the war. The SDR had small prospecting outposts set up on Titan and a few exploratory mining operations on Saturn. Steps were taken to upgrade these bases to full production capacity immediately.

The Mercenary Army, however, was not quite as prepared and as a result had to rely on raiding SDR supply lines. FOB Chasma was already well established on the Martian surface, and supply posts were dotted throughout the asteroid belt. Now all they needed was a means to intercept and steal the SDR fuel shipments. Once again Merc engineers were tasked with developing a mission specific spacecraft in record time. Instead of designing an entirely new spacecraft, they simply took components from a number of already successful designs and combined them into a near perfect hit & run attack vessel. The engine module was taken from a fast & fuel efficient freighter craft and connected to a research vessel command module by way of the hammock. Universal docking couplings along the hammock allowed cargo and SAFS pod modules to be easily connected. A Jeffries tube runs along the hammock giving the crew access to all parts of the ship. As a result of the command module being taken from an advanced research vessel, it already had highly sensitive sensor assemblies integrated, just now instead of studying the cosmos they were being used to hunt Strahl ships. Avionics, jamming, armour and weapon systems were all upgraded to military specification. A crew of four could now go on extended missions into SDR territories for up to a month at a time.

Within the Strahl held Jovian and Saturnian systems, Deuterium and Helium-3 production was at full capacity. A.I. tankers would transport the refined fuels to where they were needed. However, because the tankers would travel over such great distances they were often unescorted as there was no fighter craft within the Strahl arsenal that had that sort of range. Instead they simply relied on the A.I.s outsmarting any would be attacker...which was typically successful. Up until this point there was no way the Mercs could overtake an A.I. ship as they had no means of shutting down the mind. And after One of Pluto the Mercs were a little hesitant to rely on viruses. That is, however, until Cpl. Beth Poleski in the Electronic Warfare division designed a virus that could shutdown a freighter's A.I., wipe it's memory and upon reboot would make it think that it was a Merc vessel all along. The only problem was the virus had to be implanted at the source.

That is is where the Banana Hammock comes in. The team would patrol within the Asteroid belt and jam the sensors of any nearby SDR vessel. This would allow them to get close enough to deploy the SAFS strike team who would board the freighter, implant the virus and then reroute the ship to a Merc supply base on Ceres.

So long story short this is the LRDG...in SPACE!

Here is my ultimate version of the CR90 Corvette Tantive IV.
It had been a while that I wanted to modify the old 10019 Tantive IV in order to improve it seriously. When the 10198 set was released, I jumped on it but was also disappointed by several aspect of the model. So let’s review the pros and cons of each set.

10019 Rebel Blockade Runner (2001 - 1747 pieces):
- Its size, it is massive;
- Its shape, it is recognizable and elegant

- No playability, no space for minifig;
- Worst stickers ever (mine peeled);
- Some details and construction technics are obsolete today.

And about the 10198 Tantive IV (2009 - 1408 pieces):
- No sticker;
- Somewhat detailed interior;
- Nice engine pods;

- No landing gear or support;
- It is small!!!
- The cockpit top metabricks are ugly, particularly the white color does not match with the rest;
- Accessing some of the play features was complex (un-mount then open);

So in the end, what I wanted to build was:
- A large massive CR90 of over 100 studs;
- It should have a detailed interior, easy to access without un-mounting 300 parts.
- No sticker;
- A landing gear that is integrated and that can support the weight of the beast.
And here is the result, mostly rebuilt from scratch.

Name: CR90 Corvette Tantive IV
Length: 102 Studs
Weight: 4.4 kg
Swooshability: yes
Number of SHIPs built: 1
Number of pices: 2500 (estimated)

As the days of the Old Republic waned, the CR-90 Corvette came to be the flagship vessel for those looking for a small, multi-purpose capital ship. Also known as a Corellian Corvette or a Blockade Runner, the ship's modular design allows easy re-configurations to suit almost any use, from government and private organizations to pirates and smugglers. It can easily be refit to the roles of a troop carrier, a light escort vessel, cargo hauler, or a passenger liner, and its modular system became so popular that it has been continued in later product designs.

Often tasked with fending starfighters off of the larger capital ships in a fleet, CR-90s can also be found as front line warships in some smaller navies. Its speed makes it popular among rebels, pirates, and smugglers, lending it the nickname "blockade runner". Though sporting a respectable armament, it is slower through hyperspace than most other ships of comparable size.

Its array of weapons allows the CR-90 to stand against many foes, from starfighters to other small capital ships. Its heavy lasers provide excellent protection against starfighter attacks, and its turbolaser batteries help to ward off larger enemies. The only disadvantage in the CR-90's weapons systems is the presence of, in standard configuration, a large blind spot in the ship's firing arc to the rear, as it cannot fire at targets directly behind its large engine block.

Thanks so much to you all during SHIPtember for the great feedback and critiques. How lucky we all are to be part of such a wonderful collaborative community.

Unfortunately I ran out of time this month as real life intervened in a huge way, and was not able to complete my LED lighting. I will revisit this build in the coming months, and post new pictures once I have time.

Lots more shots on my photo stream. Just because of the way we built it I didn't take shot with the head to the right. The only way to do so would be to turn it upside down... can it be edited to fit? (And if so, do I need to upload a shot of the SHIP lengthwise?) Thanks!

Edit: A "swoosh" shot... well, more like a "hope it doesn't split in half now..." shot...

gid617: I'll take a lengthwise side view, and I can flip it to point right if that's OK with you.

Name: "Besther" Imp XIV
Length: 131.3 studs.

"Besther" Imp XIV by Pepa Quin

The Imp class of light cargo freighters was produced by the Corellian Engineering Corporation. The base freighter design, like many CEC ships, was modular and came with many options. The 'Besther' model, named for the project lead, featured individualized cargo pods which could be customized to accommodate specific needs.

The Besther Imp XIV was made in the first production run and has faired decently in its 34 years of service. Many non-essential systems no longer function well or at all, and it's space-worthiness is in doubt, but it works well as a planetside-only cargo transport.

Name: "Besther" Imp XIV
Manufacturer: Corellian Engineering Corporation
Model #: IMP-1492013299
Length: 40 meters
Width: 12 meters
Height: 7 meters
Hyperdrive rating: Class 0.8*
Crew: 3 (Pilot, co-pilot, astromech droid*)
Cargo capacity: Variable, up to 750 metric tons
Escape pods: 2
Defense systems: Light shields*
Armament: Ballistic escape pods.
Sensors: Standard cargo class*

*System damaged or inoperable

This ship is based on the Cargo Transport seen in the demo for Star Wars 1313. If you haven't seen that, watch it now and then weep for it's cancellation. This took me two weeks to build.

The N-11 (SHIPtember entry) side view by N-11 Ordo

„The N-11 is one of the Republic’s most advanced space ships. With it's experimental hyperdrive it is able to reach an extraordinary speed for a battle cruiser. It is armed with torpedo launchers for ship to ship battles, a boarding tube, escape pods and also features a large hangar for starfighters and troop transporters. It’s landing gear also makes it able to land on planets, just like the Venator star destroyer !“

I shall edit and take more photos later. Right now I don't have time to spare. I start university tomorrow.
I understand these where the bare minimum photos I could have taken so I had to take them I really didn't want to miss the deadline, hence the hastily rushed... everything. I can't apologise enough.

I also wanted to say a very very big thankyou to everybody. I've always wanted to build a SHIP. Its been a boy hood dream if you will!
So Boy hood dream = ACHIEVED :D
I just hope theses awful photographs do it some justice... probably not.

Go ahead and flip or whatever is needed. Does that mean you want me to upload the top of the picture there separately? I don't think I have a different angle.

Man, I had this done weeks ago, but it took me a while to photograph it, and even after a couple tries, I'm still not entirely pleased. Oh well, it looks cool in person!
