YT-1450 Light Freighter - "The Nadir" - Container Mode

While the tractor beam guides the container in between the mandibles, the YT-1450 ship computer calculates the small thruster moves necessary to position the container in the precise location for the automatic docking procedure to start. The XL standard container flashes "all clear" and the ship starts interfacing. The container has it's own fuel tank, thrusters and onboard computer. The ship and the container exchange control sequences and encryption keys. Everything is in order. Docking is complete. The Nadir is once again ready to haul some precious cargo across the galaxy.

Iv'e been thinking about building the Millenium Falcon ferrying a huge container for several years. Those mandibles had to be used for something right? Then the Rebrick FREIGHTER WARS contest came along and I started thinking about building a YT Corellian Freighter. A few days in to the process I was reminded of the container hauling MF, and I realized I had a great opportunity here. Well, it's not the MF, but it's a YT Freighter of my own design hauling a huge container.

 

I've been building this ship this entire month. Sometimes I had to take breaks from building the Nadir, then I built the container instead. There is a fairly intricate Technic structure inside the container and there are four connection points that connect to the Nadir. It's actually one of the most sturdy SHIPs I've built.
