Great design, but I just one question. Where does the red framework that the arms are connected to go? Do they fold back into the dock along with the arms?

I’m curious if the secutoŃ€
with its wide wings fits …

The Novator’s a modular design, meant to be able to dock to many more of itself to be able to service almost any size of ship in the Imperial Navy. So, I guess the correct answer would be: We can make it fit.

OK so each section of the shipyard is basically and independent mobile dock ship that can connect to others of its kind??? WHAT ARE THE SPECS ON THIS???

yes, Thrawn would absolutely approve! this is the kind of ship Cannon SW needs more oof, the unsung but JUST AS IF NOT MORE interesting specialists. watching these behemoths docking with each other would be AMAZING. I would call my dock ship WD 40 as an in-joke.

For some reason 3Ds Max seems to be able to capture a great Star Wars “feel”. I am making SW ships in Blender, yet it just doesn’t have that particular lighting set. I believe it may be due to different render engines. I wish I could post a photo of the Venator i’m working on, you could give some tips.

How are the manipulator arms re-positioned on the framework? Are they on a rail system or do they have to be dismounted and moved manually?

would these ships have a similar relationship to the Harbor-Class mobile space dock as was the relationship between the isd and arquitens? (meaning they were used in more important locations while the harbor was used in less important locations)

so what is the capacity of each individual ship/section? looks like roughly a single ISD sized ship or maybe an Alliegence class battleship? it looks well-defended, no surprise as the rebels would love to borrow one of these with the ship in tow. can it use hyperdrive or move with the dock scaffold deployed?

what are those holes in the side and aft of the ship?

Great job as usual!

I was wondering: Is this just for repairing ships or can it construct new one too?

Some tech questions:
– how many modules may be connected to eachother? Any restrictions?
– Can one module construct ssd with time efficient?
– size of the crew?

Can’t argue about crew estimation:) just some professional deformation with questions:)
What class of hyperdrive it uses? I think second or third, if any.

not much point in a mobile dockyard without hyperdrive to deploy it to distant systems. I’m guessing it would be a class 3-4 as it probably jumps and sets up shop for a long haul. it would be amusing to see these things making more of themselves.

I love the design. My only quibble would be that mounting them tail-to-tail essentially immobilizes them, whereas docking them nose-to-nose would allow them to retain some main drive functionality, sort of like the Field Secured Container Transport.

Okay. I was picturing this either as your version of the Deepdock or as an SWU equivalent of a self-propelled floating drydock.

I always pictured the Deepdock as something along the lines of a single massive unit – with multiple docks attached to the central structure – that was still capable of relocating even with ships in the docks. That ability to stay mobile would be the off-setting advantage to the added expense and complexity when compared to a more conventional stationary shipyard.

This is a awesome model. Would a great mobile base. Can you make a imp.escort carrier. I think your model would rock.

this really goes well with an idea I had about old Lukrehulk Class ships operating as mobile docks in a similar way. a luckrehulks is perfect for such a function as is. the rings could easily be adapted to dock a variety of ships and the main claw arms would be great for servicing larger ships.
