WIP - The Dark Aster - 2018
This is the 2nd WIP but nothing is the same.... since 2015 i changed everything many times... to figure out the height to the wideness of each section is really hard. But i think this one could go for a further try. Even the first Version of this Version (1 stud wide slides) was too short - so i redesign the middlepart from one plate distance to each slide up to one and a half plate distance.... The complete middle part was mostly done, but for the complete length from 100 studs it was too wide (12studs) so i delete also the middle part and start a new version in 8 studs wide... so that i came to a total of 108studs wide(length) maybe i can figure out the rest of this beast until Shiptember. and then still need to order some pieces :-)
About this creation

















let's see what will happen in reality with this... the plan is to rotate only the outer slides and then rotate the hole wings, like it do in the movie :-)
I talked to Tim Blake (the original Designer of the ship) - and asked him what function the turning should have - the answer was just: "it looked cool" - and yes it looks really cool i think.

Quoting Pa'Haka C. whoof that is one big ship really good structural design, is it easier in LDD or with real life bricks?
mmh that's an interesting question... In LDD i think you can easiliy calculate an angle an then try something with the point you need. For real you would have to build 30 slides and the looking where your stops are going. So for this ship i would definitly say that LDD is to figure out the measurments more easy.

Quoting Sven ;o) Was watching the movie last weekend and still impressed by the design of the Dark Aster. Your work looks really promising and wish you best of luck for it's completion in real bricks! :)
Hey thank you... ;-) The middle part is really hard to imagine in fact that there are no good reference pics where you can see for example the hole window front.... and the designer said that everything is in marvels desk - so there are no blueprints etc. to get.

Quoting Tom Remy Nice! So, no reinforcement in the wings? You think they will support their own weight?
Hi, no reinforcement is planed... i will support the wings on the outsides 2 times. But i think for the rotating mechanismus only by turning the outer slides.
