BFG Fanatic: My Lego Lunar Class Cruiser

So here is a project I did a few years back. A Lego Lunar Class cruiser. All in all it is within 85% to scale with the model, limited by the size of cetain lego pieces and a little short towards the aft (running out of critical structural pieces). The level of detail is better in person. The colouration (red) washed out some of the depth perception in these photos. Speaking of colour, I would have liked it to be more uniform, but I worked with what I had. Another let down was my inability to incorporate torpedo tubes, due to the complexity of the armoured prow (which is ironically the most fragile part). Although, I do like how the prow turned out, eagle and all.

Not shown is the interior. Ther are 3 decks and the bridge, each with crew on them. Unfortunately, due to space limitations with keeping it to scale, I had to put the strategium on the main deck rather than the bridge. It still has a rotating door and a command throne though. Right behind the Stategium (which is directly under the bridge) are the engineering spaces and forward of it is a main space, then a hatch, then the gunnery decks. Each Lance turret has operators and the weapons batteries also have crews.
