Day 29 Bonus: NCS Rocket Transport

We can't get enough of big rockets and rocket transporters over here at NCS Central and Adrian Florea doesn't disappoint with his NCS Rocket Transport

The advancing Ugokin forces have forced peaceful colonies to adapt their strategies in defensive purposes. Many of the newly inhabited planets have used their existing equipment to counter the threat. In one such case, backwater forces on Verta 6 of 8th quadrant, have modified existing missile carriers, which would normally be equipped with terraforming rockets. The newly improvised vehicle was a medium sized missile carrier able to launch cluster missiles.

"Although I too was Inspired by the old rocket transport set, " Adrian writes, "I took a different approach than what Brickfrenzy built. I couldn't stop myself from adding stickers, and I have barely any old gray parts."

We think you'll agree that what Adrian has achieved with just a few old grey parts is impressive.

Day 29: LL-998 – The Sapphire Condor.

This immense ship from Ed Diment certainly ensures he lives up to his online handle of "LEGO Monster".  LL-998 is massive, heavy and incredibly detailed from top to bottom, and it contains a surprise for anyone foolish enough to engage it in battle as this video will attest.

 

LL-998

 

Motto: ‘Making your bad day worse.’

“When you absolutely, positively have to drop on to a hot LZ, accept no substitute” – The words of Brigadier General Knackerjacker after his successful campaign to have the Federation Raptor assault ships reinstated to full service with the fleet.  The LL998s (Ultramarine Osprey, Prussian Eagle and Sapphire Condor) were moth-balled nearly a decade before the Ugokin threat materialized.  Replaced by smaller more efficient military transports with dedicated fighter support, the Raptors were considered too expensive to maintain.

Day 28 bonus: Blue Haven

It's funny how one day a small prospecting outpost can suddenly hit a rare mineral, and before you know it a busy mining settlement has sprung up. That certainly seems to be the case with Alexander Schranz's Blue Haven.

Blue Haven

What's particularly impressivbe is the time he built it in - everything has been built since the beginning of March.

Blue Haven

Alex has produced a fantastic collection of ships, vehicles, buildings, and even a monorail. Many of the components would be very worthy of individual mention, and as a collection they are doubly impressive. We also really love his brick-built Classic Space logo.

Blue Haven Ships

Keep up the great work, Alex!

Day 28 Bonus: Grand Admiral's Mini Fighter

Small fighters have proved invaluable for deploying from carriers, and Mark Sandlin's mini-fighter is no exception.

Mini Fighter

We really love the double canopy, and the "ring of fire" parts are fantastic for this ship's engines. Mark has even managed to cram in a great little set of landing gear.

Day 28: LL-451 Manta at the Battle of Solice IV

Take a look at this beauty from James Shields. We've been following the secret progress of this model for many months. Now that it's finished, it doesn't disappoint.

LL-451 Front

Nobody knows quite why the Ugokin war started, but all attempts at finding a diplomatic resolution met with disaster. The war was proving long and bloody, and with the Ugokin almost never retreating, and self-destructing rather than surrendering, any victories came at a heavy price.

LL-451 Side

The first major break for the Federation came at the battle of Solice IV. Although hardly more than a skirmish in militaristic terms, it was the capture of a Ugokin "Hunter" class starfighter intact that allowed Federation scientists to decode secrets about the Ugokin spacecraft that are still classified today.

Day 27 Bonus: Space Marine Cyborg faces off Ugokin Warrior

A brave Space Marine Cyborg stands guard, blocking the way against the first of what will surely be a horde of Ugokin warriors, hoping his modified body will be strong enough to give his squad enough time to escape. Death may be certain for him, but at least if his buddies survive, he will be remembered as a hero.

Space Marine Cyborg

Pete Reid's Cyborg is truly an awesome piece of work, demonstrating many incredible ways of connecting bricks together. like all of his amazing robots.

Day 27: LL-077 Solar Enforcer

Today we catch up with the military arm of the Federation, and one of their "big guns", Mark Stafford's LL-077 Solar Enforcer.

Solar Enforcer

The LL-077 was one of the most heavily armed ships of it's era. Capable of decimating ground targets and maneuverable enough to more then hold it's own in a dog fight with the emerging threat of Blacktron. It's only drawback was it's own firepower, if all guns were fired at a target straight ahead the ship it would stop it's own forward momentum after only 5 seconds of firing, and early test pilot often found themselves in negative spins.

Solar Enforcer

Mark says: Face it, whatever the classic space ship looked like, to a kid of the 70's they looked something like this in our heads, bristling with guns and ready for action! Just like in that Star Wars movie or Battle Beyond the Stars! Hope you all like it!

Day 26 Bonus: LL-562 Defender

A small, fast, heavily armed starfighter, Peter L Morris's LL-562 looks very swooshable indeed.

LL-562 Defender

Peter says: So, this is more along the lines of what was going through my mind when I was asked to do a MOC for NCS month. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I went with the Seraph, but it's not exactly swoosh friendly. It can be swooshed, but the wings get in the way and tend to bump into things. Plus it's a pain to just set somewhere, as something ends up getting bent out of whack. This is more my speed. Simple landing gear, relatively tough, and not too terrible to look at.

Day 25 Bonus: Classic Space Channel 5

Another great bonus at Miniland scale from Jason Railton.

"Hey there, space cats - Ulala here coming at you live on Classic Space Channel 5. I'm right here on Starbase 059 where the Ugokin have just boarded the station and seized control!"

"I'm waiting for my translator to relay their demands. They're telling everyone to get down... get... get on down! People - I think they want to DANCE!"

Day 25 Bonus: LL-009 Tactical Fighter

Another amazing bonus from Nnenn, the LL-009, a slightly out dated model, but still a work-

Without various upgrades and additions, the ancient LL-009 would be completely dilapidated. Differences in ground crew over the years have kept any two ships from looking identical. And though an embarrassment to most pilots, at least Synths will fly them.
