LEGO Fan and flickr.com member Jake shared this nice star fighter, Nova Dive from the game Star Wars: The Old Republic. The shaping of this star ship is very well done and it resembles the fighter from the game very much. The creator also uploaded a video and more photos in album. The creator of this model also recently shared a smaller scale Star Wars ship MOC CR12 Thranta Class Corvette which is also great build.

Viper Mk.II Model from Battlestar Galactica TV Series

https://www.flickr.com/photos/angelo_s/24353518204/in/dateposted/

We have recently blogged another classic space ship the Cylon Raider from Stefan Käsmayer. This time we blog maybe the most famous and recognizable space ship from Battlestar Galactica, the Viper. This beautifully shaped Viper Mk.II  from 2004 version of the series is built and shared by flickr.com member Angelo_S.. I especially like how the cockpit section is built with flexible hose pieces instead of transparent windscreen pieces. The nose section is also shaped very well and also textured with small details which makes this vehicle MOC even more interesting. The custom minifigure for the Battlestar Galactica character "Kara Thrace a.k.a Starbuck" also fits very nicely to the creation. For more photos check out the photo album.

Military Transport Plane: Antonov 225


We dont't often see MOC's at this size. LEGO model master builder and flickr.com member arwen.romel.hanna1 shared this amazingly huge military transport ship Antonov 225 in his photo stream. The creator also built tanks what can fit into this plane. The nose section opens up to load the tanks. The tanks and the plane itself are all minifigure scale. To understand the size of this MOC better check out this photo. The builder also shared many WIP photos from the building stages.

Cylon Raider from Battlestar Galactica by Stefan Käsmayer


This MOC resembles the original model so much so the fans of the classic Sci-Fi TV series Battlestar Galactica immediately notice this classic ship. LEGO Fan and flickr.com member Stefan Käsmayer recently shared this classic Cylon Raider in his photo-stream. I especially like how the light bluish gray flexible hose elements are used to create the cockpit section. The overall shaping and surface texturing are also very impressive.
