The Lightbender, a personally-constructed space transport made up of dozens of freighter hull pieces/components, designed and built by Bo'bin Kranz.

This was provided to me by Shadowstate

It was his intent to see his commission request posted up on dA, and offered it to me. I've created the Star Wars Roleplaying Game d6 stats for it, for whoever is interested. Please check out his original design, which also includes the context of the ship's background, as shown here:

Unique Craft: The Lightbender was designed and built from dozens of scavenged ships and their components. Every Space Transports Repair and Starship Weapons Repair roll required increases the difficulty by one level (easy to moderate, moderate to difficult, difficult to very difficult, etc.). In addition, if a repair attempt rolls a 1 on the Wild Die, the repair is incompatible and requires a new part entirely, due to the customized nature of the ship.

Superb!!  I seem to recognise those trapezoidal (cargo container?) units on the side; were they re-purposed from something in particular?

Intriguing, I recognise adamkop's style. 
Nice of you to give us the d6 stats. Mostly well balanced and and the harder roll for maintainnense is realistic. But 7d damage feels a bit overpowered. 

But I really like the design and it sure looks like something a player group could use

how would you keep this frakenship working?

The more you modify something, the more difficult it is to maintain.

Point in case the falcon.

Technically, the Millennium Falcon was also a frankenship, so you'd need a lot of TLC.

It's also over 100 years old. That's gonna be a problem, combined with all the rebuilding by previous owners.
