  1. I still put poster board on the back side of my lightbox to avoid the wrinkly fabrics and seems. I just cut it to fit the width and let it curve along the backside. I really like the orange rounds on the wall and the broken sections of wall. Good looking greebles, as well.
  2. The Empire has chosen Vardos.
  3. I'm very sad I had to miss this in person. Looks awesome
  4. #3 and #13
  5. Looks like y'all made 10 entries, so I won't bother throwing a minifig on a 32x baseplate. Here's what I put together for the art build...
  6. I was surprised to hear an all call for combat ships from the Black Sun syndicate. Jobs from them have been rather scarce lately, but this was good money and I really needed it. My ship, Zealot 4, had had a rough go of it since my injury on Commenor. To make ends meet I have had to resort to selling off nonessential systems and skimping on cosmetic repairs. After everything the old girl can still do some damage. And I'm going to collect some creds and make it up to her tonight. Notes: if it's not obvious, this is my bounty hunter's ship that Lucas designed as a micro build a few freebuilds back. I'll try to get some links embedded tonight if I can get back to my computer
  7. I wouldn't mind building either but the minimum size is going to be a problem because of other projects. If we only have one or two entries, maybe a 2 week extension and dropping the size requirements could help. If prizes won't be rewarded without 10 entries, I don't see the harm in easing the barriers to entry
  8. For anybody planning to build for the skyhook anyway... http://www.fbtb.net/2017/04/26/micromidis-contest/
  9. I don't think that's rude in the least. Feel free to PM me. I just redid some of the guts to make it more stable and tried a new engine design, so it's fresh on my mind and not packed away yet. It'll also be at BrickFiesta and (likely) BrickUniverse Tulsa this summer if you're local and want to see the insides
  10. Thanks everybody. I dug up another shot I think turned out pretty well. It shows my friend Dwight Neal's temple, which has some great depth around the statues and really stands out in the larger MOC.

  11. Thanks everybody. We did a lot of screenshots of trailers and tried to remember as much as we could from the movie, but nothing (except the X-Wing, maybe) is meant to be a specific building from the movie. It's mostly small details (like windows or greebling) that we tried to recreate in new buildings. I don't have a good working definition for modular, but I think it should be something that is meant to connect to other builds and can be rearranged. I'm sure the City guys have a better standard, but I'm not sure what that is. We're discussing this in the Flickr group if you want to join.
  12. I've already posted these builds separately on AG and SoNE, but I wanted to show them together and as we displayed them at BrickUniverse. These four sections are my attempt to make Star Wars modular buildings a thing. Join our Flickr group if you have modular builds you'd like to share, too - Modular Sci-Fi Jedha Dark Red 1 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr Jedha Medium Dark Flesh 1 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr Jedha Medium Azure 1 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr Jedha Market 1 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr The rest of the build (temple, tank, carts, and eastern buildings) was done by Dwight Neal, a fellow DFWLUG member. Jedha 2.0 BrickUniverse OKC by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr Jedha 2.0 BrickUniverse OKC by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr We've been working on this collab since some of the first trailers came out last September, starting with Dwight's tank and street, Dwight's Jedha by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr displaying the first version of it in December for BrickUniverse Dallas. Rogue One - Jedha - BrickUniverse Fair Park 2016 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr Rogue One - Jedha - BrickUniverse Fair Park 2016 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr My sections changed quite a bit between Dallas and OKC to make it a 360 build and our layout changed to accommodate Dwight's new Jedha temple. Once we get the blurays I'm sure we'll change/add some more. Feel free to post screenshots of architectural details on Jedha. Again, we'll be displaying it next at BrickFiesta in Mesquite, TX June 29-July 2, which is an AFOL focused convention with a lot of potential for growth. If you can make it, let me know so we can meet up and talk Star Wars MOCs.
  13. Thanks. I've been working on the Jedha stuff since the first trailer came out. They're just now ready for shooting after being at a convention. I've got one more section to shoot, but it's an attempt at automating the AT-ST I already posted on top of a base I used for AG so, it'll probably be a while before another larger build
  14. Geonosians are always good for a quick Imperial scalp. With Imperial movements on once Black Sun worlds, there is plenty of opportunity for some prey that has been flushed out of hiding. It also doesn't hurt that the new local garrisons will be available for easy delivery. Political upheavals are good for business.
  15. Yeah, I think they're just more pronounced in LDD, especially when you can't see the texture of the bricks in the rendering
