Built for the current spaceship competition.
About this creation


Category - Cruiser

Spaceship Tournament


This is the battlecruiser HMS Adroit. I used 1x2's to help bend the hull on this one. More photos and details to follow... (77 studs long - the next one I do like this will be bigger :))







Adroit absorbs a direct hit from a Draggone cruiser in a far away nebula of interstellar space.



Some famous dignitaries meet on board the Adroit for a secret summit meeting in the year 10039 AD.


In the Hangar bay with the new Mk IV Samhain Fire.
















Long Live GAIA!!!

Quoting Marc "Edge" R.unde Check the ships from Freelancer, they are quite low polygon models with not sooo crazy angles and there are even some that I haven't built already. ;-)
Wilco. Hopefully I have the time to sneak this one in...

Quoting sinan bitižik Hi Parrington, We will make a spacecraft for the round 2 but I m not good at video games ,so I do not find any thing. What do you think what kind of things..? Also this is my e-mail; sinanbitisik@gmail.com you can reach me here.
Hey dude, yeh, I'm at a total loss also. I really struggle to build to a set category. I scrapped 3 builds already. I hope I get one finished on time...

Excellent color and shape, definitely a cruiser, score 4, I found the 3 secondary cannons just a tad to big.

Yeah, totally wicked dimensions, but so dang cool! I think I'm gonna have to try that technique on my next GAIA ship, which will have to wait some time, because I'm out of LEGO-money...

Quoting Marc "Edge" R.unde With Benny's words: "You really let the air out of my tanks!" This might not be your biggest, but surely one of, if not the best of your ships. The hull technique you used gives it such a smooth look and makes it look bigger as it actually is. And these lines! Pure classic cruiser goodness. You see, I'm totally drooling over this beast. But, your LEGO ships are waaaaay off scale, when compared with your novel specifications. (I know, your LEGO stuff has its own scale.I can live with that.) As a cruiser, this one should be between 10000 and 20000 feet, am I right? These barrels must be ridiculously thick and the windows pretty high! My GAIA SHIP is intented to be to scale with your novel stuff and therefore only a 'Stellar Destroyer'. Yes, I'm gonna post it this year, I'm afraid that I've just taken too many pictures that need to be edited for a clean background. Ahh, I love GAIA nerd talk...
:) Cheers MArc. Yes, funny how after 5 years I finally get the method right. Now I really look forward to the next one which will use this hull bending method for maybe a 200 long craft. But it may be a while off as I want to get back to drawing and writing for a while again. Ah, so can't wait to see yours. I hear you on the scale front. True that. I could hardly build a stellar dreadnought out of Lego with any real detail. I mean, if a 1x1 yellow plate was a bridge area, to stay in scale I imagine I'd need to build a 1000 long model, lol... You have it right as you say, with a 340 long you can easily claim to be a stellar destroyer. A pretty good scale match there. This boat should be about 20000 feet like you say, which means at just 77 studs long, you shouldn't be able to see any real details, lol. Those 1x1 plate windows would be like 100 meters long or something, lol. And yeh, the guns are meant to be BIG! Need to be to pass a suns energy through them, lol...

Looks to me more like a navy battleship than a spaceship, but the wings and thrusters are convincing enough. Also nice CS color scheme. Score: 3

Great shape and, of course, colour scheme. This positively bristles with firepower and your own unique style.

Impressively fast work on this! GAIA is still awesome, and I do love your Battleship Yamato aesthetic. Looks like a shoo-in for round 2 to me!

CHeers David, yeh I have started taking wip snaps here and there as it is kinda fun to see...

GAIA with a twist... that one top view photo lends/shows-off an almost Art Deco feel to the design! Adroit is the perfect name for this! :)

Quoting Marc "Edge" R.unde Oh, you're up for a 300 long one? Haha, come and catch me, matey!
:) Hahah, I am still waiting for you to release yours before I even begin planning, but yes, since ypu have lifted the bar, (My biggest was 225), I have been slowly planning a 300 long myself. But I will need to renovate the house first so I can get back into the garage where I can actually try photograph teh build. Oh and I want to get a better camera first also! I hate how my photos turn out!

Don't ya just hate that? Cheers man, Long Live GAIA :)

Quoting Stephan Niehoff Wow Maty, an ingenious technique to make the hull shape. This is a masterpiece my friend. The guns are really good, and the structures look fantastic. Your way to build spaceships in this way, is now perfected. hats off
:) Now to build the big one! It took me like 5 years to get to the point where I was happy with a hull!

Quoting Commander Bricks Don't forget to add it to the group! And your score:4 why? Because of the lighting on some of the pictures, and it look a tad too much like an earth ship. Very nice build though!
Yeh, cheers. Will add it when it's finished. Was hoping to add better photos and maybe interior shots prior.

Quoting Firas Abu-Jaber Great model with tons of details! Looks way bigger from the thumbs, which is a good thing. Well done mate.
Thanks Firas. Yes! I only made this 77 long, and 10 wide excluding wings, but tried to keep its scaling towards that of real battleship which were generally around 1to8 width to length. Cheers, glad it worked...

Quoting Tom Simon Another big boy. Are you on a sleepless tear?
:D, Just a jobless tear! As well as build this yesterday, I ripped off the carpet of the house. Crazy day. Built between breaks. Unfortunately my photo's were sloppyish as I started taking snaps at about 1.00 am thinking, yeh, have to get this published tonight! lol, should have taken my time but never can. Didn't even build the interiors I was planning. Anyway, I was really happy with this new way of hull building for a GAIA ship. I now need to plan the 300 long ship using this hull shaping method. But that build may be well into the future, lol.
