Imperial Cargo Shuttle SW-0608 "Rogue One"
About this creation
This is a MOC that has quite the story. First of all, I knew that to replicate the scale, it would have to be absolutely GIGANTIC. So, the story begins the night Rogue One came out, December 16, 2016. Within ten minutes of getting home from the theatre, I already had the technic structure of the wings done, and was wondering how I would attach them to the main body that was to be built a day or two later. So, it all was great and all, just building along. Then I went to see the movie a second time. That's when I realized that I had to rebuild the entire body of the thing. The only thing I could think about at the time, of course, was, "this STINKS." Well, it turned out not to be too hard to redo it, and building went fine the rest of the way, all the way to the end.
And then IT happened. That's right. IT. When it was all done, I had some friends come over to hang out, and it was up on its stand on the kitchen table. With the four heavy ratcheting joints, I wanted to show them what it was like when it was in landing mode, but I kept it on the stand. THEN, before I knew what was happening, while folding the wings, the stand shifted, AND HALF OF THE ENTIRE SHUTTLE SHATTERED. It was horrible, pieces were everywhere, and all I could think of in my head are things that should not be repeated. On the inside, I was in fuming, but on the outside, I still had to play it cool, since my friends were there, and didn't want to be a jerk. They kindly helped me pick up all the pieces, and show about twenty minutes, I had it all reassembled again. At this point, I'm just glad I remembered how to put it back together again.
So, after all that drama, and about a month and a half of building, I have something incredible to show you today. Onto the creation, its dimensions are 21 12 in. long, 23 in. tall in landed mode, 13 in. wide in landed mode, and 37 in. wide in flight mode. My guess is its about approx. four to six THOUSAND pieces, and when I put it on the scale, it weighed EIGHT 1/2 POUNDS of plastic. This is even bigger than my previous Venator, which can be found here. Overall, through all the stress, to me, it was worth it. This is my first announcement of this, but this will be put in another moc I hope to build, which is Scarif. I hope to make the landing pad and bunker, and am planning on 30" x 30". With that being said, I leave for Disney world in a few days, and am planning on attacking the PAB wall for parts. I am super excited for it, and just can't wait.
I would appreciate if you would make me one of your favorite builders, and as always, please comment and like!
