[stealing someone's MOC] Stargate

3 posts in this topic

Based on this MOC: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=151715 I was able to reverse engineer the rings but I wanted mine a little different. Instead of being inside SGC, I wanted it to be outside on stone base and with DHD.

The inner ring (750+ pieces): http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Lego-0taku/misc/stargate_inner_ring.lxf

The outter ring (1500+ pieces): http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Lego-0taku/misc/stargate_outter_ring.lxf

The DHD: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Lego-0taku/misc/stargate_dhd.lxf

I stored the rings separately because it's hard to combine them in free floating situations plus I haven't gotten the ring angle right so the inner ring isn't closed. The parts in the middle are because of collision issue and illegal design: technic pins (3/4, 2L, and longer pins) do NOT go in plate, that causes excess stress and usually ruins the pin after a while. Only the 1/2 pin's stud end can be used safely in plate.

Anyway I'd like C&C on the DHD. It'll have printed label to form 2 rings of glyphs with gap between inner glyph ring and the red button. (no round trans-red or trans-orange in 2x2 size??) The DHD should be close to the same scale as the gate itself. I haven't figured out how to do the "wing" part around the side of the DHD.

Sorry Otaku, I don't have LDD, so I can't even open your files... So I can't even comment... :sceptic:

Maybe post some pictures next time would get people interested and generate some comments?

Or perhaps a slightly better phrased title? "Homage to <person>'s stargate" or "My version of <persons>'s stargate" would strike a slightly more positive tone... "stealing" while I understand in jest - may make people pass on the thread ? :shrug_oh_well:
