That's amazing! I've seen Baronsat's UCS Shuttle before and thought that he'd captured it perfectly and then you come along!

Will the wings support their own weight in flight mode though? And I think the cockpit should be angled a little steeper.

yes the wings will hold their own weight, i thought that the cockpit should be a bit steeperbut looking at the source photos it does'nt go below the hull, but when you watch ROTJ in the home one hangar it is very steely angled

I second that :wub:

You really do have too much time on your hands since you've got time for this and the other UCS models you've done.

Dammit I need a LEGO room to get started on achieving such skill and ability.

Wow, great job!

I love all the details.

Both of your models (B-wing and this one) are outstanding.

Holy-frickin-crap! So many perfect Lego creations, so little time to reply to them all. They just keep coming! :cry_happy: The engine is spot-on, and the cockpit just :oh3: (in a good way) Its hard to use words to explain it, especially since my jaw has dropped to the ground and wants to stay there...

Good job with the Shuttle Tydirium :) How long did it take to build it?

Which part of the ship was the hardest to build? Where did you get the black window from? It blends perfectly with the cockpit of the ship sention.

I have one of the Kenner 1984 Imperial Shuttles, and yours is almost spot on to the real thing! Awesome job!

the hardest bit was the three wings believe it or not the amount of technic pins and axles in them plus nearly 100 1x1 brick with hole in each one!

the window is a 12 x 4 windscreen with car window tint on.

took about 2 months including parts ordering and working out problems.

That looks great but I have 1 question though...can it hold minifigs?

yes 4 in the cockpit, the body would hold a lot more if you remove the landing gear mechanism.

Agreed.

It's kinda hard making something that bog without it slightly resembling other MOCs.

A shuttle is a shuttle after all.

That MOC makes other peoples effort look bad. Honestly it is just amazing.

I am sure it cost a lot and probably take a great deal of work to get all the angles and shapes right.

Thanks for sharing it with us.

I for one has defiantly learnt some new techniques from the MOC.

Cannot wait until you post some of your other MOCs.
