Take a leaf from the Spyrius manual – fly it like you stole it

From 1994-1996 various factions and organisations throughout space fell victim to Spyrius — villainous thieves whose vessels sported a distinctive red and black livery. Spaceruner has taken inspiration from some classic LEGO sci-fi sets to build an impressive new flagship for this sinister bunch of space-bandits. The iconic colours are in place, including the signature trans-blue windows and canopies, but the size of this craft is on a whole different scale from the official Spyrius sets.

This beast of a model is 155 studs long — that’s 1.25m. The size is put to great use, allowing the builder space to develop a detailed interior. The vessel has all the facilities you’d expect of a flagship craft, including hangar bays, control bridge, canteen and galley, offices, and even a pool. The ship’s upper surfaces can be lifted clear to allow access to the internal sections…

However, despite the quality of the interior, it’s the colours and external shaping which marks this out as a striking addition to the villainous fleet. Take a look at these views from different angles which give a good look at the impressive engines and, my favourite part, the asymmetric domed section mounted on the craft’s left flank…

    The presence of a Blacktron II member might not be surprising, but the appearance of Classic Space, Space Police and Explorien Droid renegades intermingling in the high-tension hotbed is definitely unsettling…

    Thank you for featuring my build :)
    Sometimes I like to build a battle-ready ship, and sometimes a friendly ship. This is the later one. There are no guns on board and all space factions are welcome here.

    I love the feel of that bridge, a lot of control area on ships is very tight. I have a hard time imagining being in a space that claustrophobic for a whole shift. The spaciousness is cool.
