Recently, VitorFaria posted several IO vessels based off Star Wars vehicle designs. I'm not sure if he posted one of these already, but I wanted to make one of my own. One of my favorite Star Wars vessels: The Blockade Runner (Originally seen in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope). I am aware that the color is off mainly because I did not have the parts in the right colors. Also, this build is a near copy from the Star Wars LEGO set 75011 due to it's nearly perfect IO scale.

Blockade Runner: d6Rd d6Rd Turbolaser, d6B Escape Pod, d6Y Sensor Array, d6G Frigate Engines.

Normally VitorFaria makes Star Wars based ships and I do apologize if my posting one steps on toes, but I wanted to share.
I hope you enjoyed and as always, I eagerly await any and all comments you wish to share.

Just to be clear, is the ship using the escape pods as a counter missile or improvised shield?

I consider the escape pod as an alternate way to increase the crews survival rating. On a more technical level, the pods do increase the overall mass of the main vessel, so if one 'accidently short-circuited' the Blockade Runner looses whatever mass that pod provided, kinda like armor plating that gets blown off in a fire-fight.

It was a simple feature to add VitorFaria. I'm glad you liked it. I was actually paying homage to Episode IV: A New Hope, when the droids used the escape pod to abandon ship and land on Tatooine. Plus I was trying to think of what to use as systems for IO play and the escape pod wanted to be featured lol

Been doing some slight experimenting with the Blockade Runner design. It's actually a bit more versatile than I initially thought

ImageBlockade Runner Variants
TAN: d6Ra d6Ra Support Range Torpedoes, d6Y Radar, d6Y Targeting Array, d6G Frigate Engines
WHITE/RED: d6Rd d6Rd Turbolaser, d6Ra d6Ra Heavy Blaster, d6Kd Frame Catapult with Company, d6G Frigate Engines

I'll play around with the customizations some more, so don't be surprised if I post any more. lol

The Deimos Class Corvette has gained positive reputation as a defensive capital ship, however, there arose skeptics that voiced concerns that flagships need to have a more active role when in combat and have suggested a slight redesign is in order. Though the classic Deimos has more than succeeded in its intended role, an altered Deimos design has been created to test a more aggressive strategy, without sacrificing the Hardened Armor Plates that had earned it predecessor it's success.

Judgement is still on debate on a combat aggressive Deimos design, as this current model has yet to be tested in combat.

Ever so slowly, I do intend to make a coherent fleet of Deimos class corvettes, and here's the newest one I bricked: the Heavy Carrier Deimos. This one uses the same build design as the previous red one.

The whole design is very solid, but I particular love those catapults with hangar bay openings!
