Hoth V 150 Planet Defender (anti-orbital ion cannon)

Here is a midi scale version of the ion cannon of the rebels base. This is an assembly of pure Lego parts, and sticker-free of course.

In reference to it's well known look (see movieshot below), I've tried to construct a ball shape weapons system from the given rounded parts.

That results to a size somewhere between a golf and tennis ball. You can imagine it's dimension by comparing it with the minifigure. To give it an appropriate angularity, it's stand on a hidden hinge.

Today, the Planet Defender is placed seamless to my small private Hoth base (another MOC).

I hope you'll enjoy this small-sized construction and may build your own copy.
