My fondness of Midi-scale ships doesn’t end with Star Wars and this SHIELD Helicarrier by Ewok in Disguise is a fantatsic build that would look great on a shelf next to the Millennium Falcon. It uses some great techniques like the mixing of the old and new wheel hubs for the rotors, the angled upper deck and I even like the sticker use. One little detail it’s missing is the 64 on the side of the hull, since seeing the movie it’s left me wondering if this helicarrier is a heavily retrofitted USS Constellation or if the number is just an obscure shout-out to Whedon’s favourite game system.

I’m a sucker for the now defunct midi-scale line and this 22 inch version of the Executor, Darth Vader’s personal Flagship, would make a great addition to that series. Pellaeon‘s Dreadnaught Class Super Star Destroyer is a bit larger than the previous official Midi models and tiny compared to LEGO’s UCS version, but still manages to pack in the details and balance them well in this difficult scale. Any day I get to quote the Ackbar is a good day indeed.
