The Manticore is my third SHIP (seriously huge investment in parts). At 180 studs, it is significantly larger than my first two SHIPs. I built the Manticore over an agonizingly long 10 1/2 months.
The Manticore is a battle ship built around a super weapon colloquially known as the Destructo Beam. The ship also carries two large laser turrets on the roof, a number of smaller turrets, and two fighters.
