Minecraft Wing Commander Tribute Project

Hello

I am currently working (by myself) on a Wing Commander Project in Minecraft.
I will include ships from most of the games (as far as possible) and create some ships inspired by Wing Commander.

here is a link to some of my "creations" so far: ..... (not allowed to post links yet) coming soon. you can google "namco_duckman imageshack" to find my pictures.

The carrier is inspired by the TCS Tiger Claw (Wing Commander Movie) and the TCS Vesuvius (Wing Commander IV).
Carrier_002.png
The size of the carrier is about 630 meters in length. 24 decks.
There is also a Venture class corvette (length 80 meters), a Thunderbolt MK VII (length 33 meters), a Dralthi MK II (length 23 meters) and a civilian shuttle (length 50+ meters) so far.
All complete with interior. currently working on the interior of the carrier ship.

I started the project on January, 12th 2014.

Process so far:
Carrier: 100% Outside, 10% Inside
Venture-Class Corvette: 100% Outside, 80% Inside
Dralthi Mk II: 100%
Thunderbolt Mk VII: 100%
Civilian Shuttle: 100% Outside, 80% Outside
Southampton-Class Destroyer: 0% (not started yet)


Minecraft Stones used: about 1 million stones so far.

Wing Commander Resource pack for Minecraft: 0% (not started yet)

more to come...



I hope, you like my "creations"

Thanks. working on it most of my free time. up to 16 hours on the weekends.
Will make a video of it too. but first i need to finish most of the interior of the carrier.
When i am finished with all ships, maybe i will upload it to a server so everyone can have a look at the fleet.

Awesome stuff you have there. When I saw it on the front page I thought it looked a bit like the Vesuvius. How many hours in the month did it take to build it?
