  1. Well I haven't done any big mocs like what you want to accomplish. But all I can think of what you need to start with is a good frame to hold the entire thing together. a good foundation is what is needed, then fill in your interior where you can and modify your structure. Are you working with real bricks or in a program? I would hope DTS would come in a and comment, since he is the one that has the experience with the thing. Good luck, this project will be a big challenge. I have seen many people say they are building one but never follow through.
  2. I love to 3D print. and these turned out pretty good as far as 3d printing goes. But as actual minifigs they kind of look like horrific/scary force ghosts. lol. Though these are a cheap solution to fill the void. Personally I would try to mold transparent minifigs. It's a good start though to custom figs.
  3. Back when sets were simple and easy to build and not afraid to disassemble because they could easily be built back. Very fond memories with this set, an easy army builder. Has anyone else's leaves completely broken off?
  4. I just looked through your instructions, I really like this build. Maybe someday I will attempt this. It's funny, all you basically did was double the size of the set to be a more accurate scale. Can I ask, how you made your instructions?
  5. I'll admit, I am not a fan of a bunch of tiny pieces crammed into a small MOC , with all the illegal techniques and custom parts. But I suppose it is it's own art form. Droideka is the coolest CIS droid, and you captured all the detail. I really like the upside down helmet (that is new). and your background to showcase it is stunning!
  6. they look like a custom mold. Reminds me of wuzzupbobs customs. Very well done figs regardless
  7. Wow that is one ugly toy! you did a good job of recreating it in lego form!
  8. This is easy. I like the start you have. One play feature I would want to see in this set would be the pods be attached to a wall/structure, and pulling a lever/pushing a button to eject the pod as if it's being flung at Yoda, I think Palpatines podium should be included as well. Some Minifigs Such as Royal Guards I think would be a great addition.
  9. Welcome to the forums! This looks awesome! I love the mostly SNOT design, Millennium Falcon looks a lot better without studs. and using the System scale cockpit helps bring it full circle. I like how the radar dish and other protrusions are neatly sculpted around with plates, just fits seamlessly. I feel the plates that go around the top need to slope a bit more rounded to give it that disk shape. but other than that the model is perfect. I would like to do a build like this someday. I don't feel your brass pieces are too far out of line from being a purist model, as long as they act the same a lego piece in it's place, though you did solder some together. Being a display only model, it's not like LEGO has never used metal in their displays for structure. Great work, Do you have a Flickr or something to visit?
  10. Great work! The ship is slowly growing on me. The shaping and everything looks appropriate. The added stickers on the window help a lot pulling the model together. The only thing I find wonky is the front bottom half of the ship, It might be the inverted sloped bricks. but the rest of the ship is well done and captures all the slopes and shapes. Well done!
  11. Hey Thire5! I remember always seeing these MOCs on Brickshelf back in the day and I would always look at them in admiration. I was never into the UCS back then. but looking back these are really good looking models for the time. My favorite would be the AT-TE, and I would say it would be partially inspiration for eventually making my own . It's easy to say your work has vastly improved. Do you plan on making anymore UCS ships in the future? (now I know why I couldn't find them in your Brickshelf folder..)
  12. I am sure that would look great next to the UCS Shuttle. Great job!
  13. Is this a Moc or a Mod? Has a most of the design from the new Y-wing set. The Body is the only thing changed.
  14. TLG(C)= The Lego Group (or Company) LDD= Lego Digital Designer You should ask this in the general questions section Forum Information Page. These are commonly used terms here. You may also see AFOL, which is Adult Fan of Lego. Now lets get back on topic.
  15. Looks great! I have a half-built V-wing with similar techniques, it does look a little stretched (vertically), over a good build.
