I thought it would be nice to see some pics of the Beast coming together. Unfortunately they aren't all of the best quality. I wish, I had taken more during the build!
About this creation

The first parts have arrived and I couldn't resist, although I had no parts for the inner skeleton.



The thing was sturdier than expected!



Yes, it starts looking like a ship!



Red parts of the front and rear half layed out together on the floor.
This is almost as long as the finished MOC.



As more and more parts arrived, the bow starts taking form.
Still, there's a lot more blue to come!



Bow Close-up.



Front skeleton.



Hey, even the rear was growing! Sorry, for the blurry pic.



The retrorocket covers already exist.



Base frame of the command pyramid area.



Looking into the cargo hangar below the command pyramid.



I have no clue who the lunatic behind the WIP is. Seriously!



Starts looking like a ship, doesn't it?!



Still, no deck...



I can see right into you!
What's that on the right? A foot, or what? Dang!



Side hangar opening.



Cranes without grab.



The portside planet killer missile silo is not yet completed, but I just had to try to fit it into its slot.
The silo vents are still missing, too. AARRR, waiting for all the parts is so dang hard!



Empty silo slot.



In the end there will be six engines.



Looking at the secondary hangar.



Complete, but without deck and ceiling.



Cargo hangar of the rear section.



A foot! Again? Why? --- Dunno!
The sloped alcoves are the launch bays for the lifeboats.
Above you can see the barge hangar area.



The Technic pin serves as the standard docking port.



Barge docked. How much fun these little builds were.



Quite comfortable ships, with big panorama windows.
To give you a sense of scale, one of the white Threshold Marking-like stripes is 3m x 15m in size.



The black parts in the hangar wall were supposed to give the illusion of some dark space behind the balcony, when being looked at from the hangar entrance.
Didn't work that good. Oh, well.
Some blurry standard GAIA cargo containers in the front.



Hangar ceiling applied.



One of 62 turrets installed. Building them seemed to take like forever!



Once again a slot for the planet killer missile silos.
The other side is already completed, I just forgot to take a picture of that.



It fits too, but the studs ave to be facing the other way.



That's better.



Lettering applied. I was lucky to find some decent looking lettering stickers.
Initially I wanted white ones, but silver works, too.



Four times the 'Big Bertha', please!



...and installed!



Be careful when you're taking photos of your MOC standing upright.
Don't knock it over!



DANG! But hey, it is sturdier than expected!



Alternate colouring. GAIA non Earth Fleet colours.

Quoting Oran Cruzen This really deserves more comments so here is another one for ya Edge! Out of this world NICE! If I had tried this it would have been dropped on the floor more than once.
Ha! You have no clue. I've stopped counting, how often I almost dropped her, while moving her around. She is so big, you just keep on hitting something, when not being careful. Walls and door frames are everywhere... Anyways, thanks for the comment Oran!

Quoting Clayton Marchetti Wow Marc! The shot with you in the picture really gives it scale. What a beast! It's awesome to see how this ship was built. I love how you made the landing bays. So much detail. Outstanding job Marc!
Good to hear you dig this, thanks!

Quoting Henrik Jensen Great to have this inside wiev of the mighty Misirlou.
Thanks, who doesn't like a good peep show? ;-)

Quoting Nick Barrett Oh my! This looks amazing, and a whole lotta fun to build. Sturdy too, which is fortunate :-) As one block, it must be incredibly heavy! Start pumping that iron...
Be sure that you had a good breakfast, before lifting it! :-) Hehe, thanks!

Quoting Topsy Creatori Hey, Marc, these are great, thanks! I especially like that shot in the hall as it really brings home how large the vessel really is! :)
Thanks, Topsy! Love your build for the collaborative, too. Now I know, who's got the pants on!

Such a beautiful name for such a terrible beast!... A tremendous amount of work here and an outstanding result. Respect for this impressive creation.

Quoting Stephan Schumann That's going to be EPIC! Overall likely-welldone shape and scale-proportions, nice details, and stable built! Exhilarating, stunning Wip!
Thanks, Stephan! If you haven't seen it already, here is the fished SHIP: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/413162

Phenomenal build Marc! The sheer size is impressive enough, but the detailing and interior sections really push this over the top. Incredible work!

lol, of course, Taking off the glasses always helps make being an AFOL non-geeky! lmao. So it was the STrek design that did that to you, lol, classic. Yes that would have a stupid centre of gravity haha...

Das habe ich mir schon gedacht. Auch ich überlege ob ich mit diesem Rumpf mal experimentiere

Quoting Parrington Levens Love the surprise at the end! Always good to see an Exo-Force colour scheme :) LOL when I saw you take a pic with it on its nose. Did the same thing myself and was terrified it would fall and explode! Misirlou looks tough enough to survive the fall, but then again, Lego really can come apart lol. I remeber I built a big ole cs ship back in 2002 when I had a brief emergence from my darkage, it was like built on top of several road platforms. I made the mistake to pick it up and it just fell in half out of my hands and exploded right throughout the loungeroom. I simply couldn't believe it. The biggest surviving chunk had maybe a hundred pieces in it! Anyway, enough of my sob story, guessing you never dropped this one. Yeh man, so good to see another post concerning this epic Lego build man. And who is that lunatic? ;)
Haha! Dude,I know that thing just too well. You cannot imagine how often my Excelsior exploded, when I tried to move it around. Well, almost every time I moved it around. Strange wobbly Star Trek design. That lunatic seems to be me, just without my glasses - didn't want to look to nerdy! ;-)

Thank you, Commander! I'm really curious about the guts of your Galactica! ;-)

Quoting Stephan Niehoff Schön noch einmal alles zu sehen. ich würde sagen es ist Zeit für ein neues Projekt :)
Es geht schon wieder etwas vor in meinen Gehirnwindungen... Einen Tender vielleicht. Nur ganz so groß wird es dann aber nicht mehr werden. Max. 100 - 120 studs und ich muss Parringtons gekrümmten Rumpf ausprobieren!

Quoting David Roberts I hadn't really realised quite how big this ship was until I saw the pboto ofit in your hall and the photo of you next to it. Very, very impressive but it looks like it was a fun and enjoyable project too.
Oh, it was an incredibly fun project and educative! I learned that the next time I build something that big, I'm gonna make it at least three sections and a lot more modular. Although such a solid block of bricks has its advantages...
