The Klingon Bird of Prey is, since I can think of, my favorite Spaceship-design and as well the one, which inspired me the most in my childhood and all my own spaceship Models.
After completing the BoP as virtual Model (2008-2010), it was always a dream of me to build it some time with real bricks. I'm really lucky the dream became true six years later!
Really just in time to celebrate and tribute with it the 50th anniversary of Star Trek this year as well as the 30th anniversary of "Star Trek IV - The Voyage Home" where the BoP is (at least for me) the big star on screen... aside with George and Gracie.
Special thanks to Mark Kelso and Marshal Banana for helping me out with the photo-edits and especially helping me to achieve my goal: getting the BoP online before end of the year!
A beautifully made ship! I'll admit, I'm a bit more of a Star Wars fan than I am a fan of Star Trek, but I've always thought this ship had a fascinating design, and I think you've captured that design very well. I particularly love how you've done the engines, along with the wings and weapons. As I said earlier, this is beautifully made and I love what you've done here.
Indeed this is incredible. Not sure though what is better, the Lego build or the photo editing! Both are superb. Glad that you also some less-edited photos so that viewers could actually see the more Lego-aspects of the build. Great submission.
