Product Idea

Homeworld Kushan "Blade" Interceptor

The idea for this model I have from a computer game named Homeworld. This battleship is one of the smallest in the Kushan fleet. The color is original like in the game.

For more information about the game and the story klick here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homeworld

 

Set includes:

  • The model of a Homeworld Kushan "Blade" Interceptor spaceship
  • The stand with the sign for the spaceship
  • (Additionally) electric system to light up your model you will need: 1x 8878; 1x 45517; 1x 8871; 4x/5x 8870 (as bright as you like your power unit)

 

Other data (ship with stand):

  • 1017 bricks
  • 21.0 cm width
  • 37.6 cm length
  • 13.7 cm height

 

Explaning the parts of the ship:

This is the cockpit. It is somewhat bullish. It have to for more armor to save the pilot.

This is the fuel tank near by the cockpit. Don't worry, this fuel can't blow up ... I hope ;) The fuel is still unknown.

This is the improved control as the Scout (my other project) and it is below the cockpit for better weapons control and ship control. Of corse it needs more space and in addition it is well armored, that's why the ship has a jowl.

This is the opposite of the jowl. Because the jowl has more mass, on the other side you also had to apply some mass to get a better stability of movement.

Here you can see the twin projectile cannon with extended barrel. The extended barrel is for a higher impact.

These four little lights are used to light up objects in space. With electrical modifications on the model this lights can shine.

This is the armor for the extended barrols. On the top you can see the cooling system for the cannon. The same armor is on the buttom too.

This is the driving force of the ship. It is the crux of the ship. It supplies the ship with energy.

Behind this armor is the life yupport system. It sits on the length with the cockpit for nearby support.

Like the Scout (my other project) this is a sensor system to locate other objects and ships in space. The sensor system of the Interceptor isn't as strong as the Scout. The sensor has some position lights.

This is the interconnect modul between the driving force and the power unit to supply the power unit and had to be extra cooled. The cooling system is in the middle and cools the two pipes next to it. The direction of flow of the energy is from red (hot) to black (cold).

The cooling system for the power unit is much smaller because the most heat is gone on the interconnect modul.

This is the power unit of the Interceptor and it's much bigger than the Scout (my other project). The Scout is even faster, because the Interceptor has more mass by means of his armor and bigger cannons and the bigger moduls. The power unit can light up on this model with some electrical modification.

These four black bricks are the docking system to get a save docking on other bigger ships - it's just like the original ;)

This is the connection point with the stand to get electricity on borad.

This is how it look's like if it is coupled with the stand. You also can see the connection point on the stand. To get your ship light up you need the following Lego parts: 1x 8878; 1x 45517; 1x 8871; 4x/5x 8870 (as bright as you like your lights). If you already had the Scout and the needed electrical parts for it you don't need for the Interceptor 8878 and 45517! You can combinate these two ships.
