How To Build This Ship?

Postby Goober » Sun Jun 09, 2019 10:02 pm

I'm trying to make this ship in LEGO, but I'm having some trouble. The base of it can be similar to the basic IO ship PALAU's catapults, but I'm not sure how to accomplish the triangular peaks. Most pieces are a smaller slope. Putting two 2x2 (or 1x2, 4x2, etc.) sloped bricks together at their bases makes an appropriate peak, but then the only connection point left sticks outwards, which is awkward to connect to anything.

Any ideas?

Going by just the image provided, I tried to make something resembling the vessel. IT'S NOT PERFECT, but it just might be a decent starting point.

Here's an LDD file as well Hakob Dreadnaught LDD

I apologize in advance if it's not exact to the imaged, but again, I think it makes a decent start.
I hope this helps.

Ooo, this is really good! I was starting from a much larger size, so I hadn't considered that angled piece. I'll see what I can do with this.

Thanks!
