Finally have my SHIP done and off my bucket list. It was a big love hate relationship getting this completed. My intention from the beginning was to build a ship that had a hanger bay with mechs in it. I've seen a lot of ships built over the years with hanger bays in them but it looked to me like frequently the hanger bay was an after thought and what goes in the hanger even more so. So I started with my smallest pieces and built up from there. Built mechs big enough to house a minifig, then built a hanger big enough to house 3 mechs, then built a ship big enough to house the hanger (which by the way increased in size 3 different times till i finally was satisfied with its proportions). This ended up being a lot bigger than i initially envisioned. It is 6 feet long, but i'll include several specs below. Any ways i'm so glad this labor of love is done. I owe a big thanks to my wife and family for allowing me to spend way to much time on this project.
