Stargate BC304 Daedalus Battlecruiser

This is my scale model of the BC304 Daedalus from Stargate Atlantis.


I am a huge Stargate fan and wanted to build my favourite ship from the series, with as much accuracy and detail as I could manage in Lego form to create a worthy display model with a challenging build experience. The model contains 2291 parts and has a complex structure, using advanced building techniques to ensure detail is on show from every angle. I decided on a fairly limited scale, which proved quite difficult, but it was really rewarding working out how to create some of the more complicated shapes and features at this size.


The BC304 "Daedalus" class battlecruiser is a deep space carrier designed by the United States, operated in coordination with Stargate Command. Unlike its predecessor, the BC303 Prometheus, the Daedalus class was designed around the inclusion of alien technology, particularly those gifted to Earth by the Asgard in return for their assistance in the war against the Replicators, including shields, sensors, communication systems, transport beaming, and intergalactic hyperdrive technology.


Upon completion of the first Daedalus, it was immediately dispatched to the Pegasus galaxy to support the Atlantis expedition in the war against the Wraith. A further five BC304 vessels were constructed and were critically important in protecting humanity from a number of existential threats.


The BC304 is manned by a crew of 200 people. It can carry up to 16 F302 fighter-interceptors in its two hangar bays, and is armed with railgun emplacements and missile launchers. They were also later retrofitted with Asgard plasma beam weapons.


This scale display model includes:

  • Highly detailed hull identified with the Tau'ri symbol

  • Primary and secondary sublight engines

  • Dual primary and secondary hangars

  • Railgun emplacements & 16 missile bays

  • Central bridge

  • Shell superstructure with sensor & communications array

  • Two F302 fighter interceptors

  • Tau'ri symbol display stand
