LSS Thermopylae

This is my first really big digital Lego model.  Naturally, it’s a spaceship.  It has a sort of “Classic Space goes to war” vibe that I’m quite pleased with, and is obviously largely inspired by seagoing battleships and their spacegoing equivalents.

I built the rear of the ship so that it would open up to reveal an internal shuttlebay, but being unfamiliar with some of the foibles of MLCad, the way I did it was completely unconducive to grouping all the door bricks together into a single unit that could be rotated open together.  I know better now, but I was building as if it were real bricks and doing what I would have naturally done.  So I had to tear the back off in order to show you the inside:
