  1. Being a big fan of color variants, I can only applaud your red Y-Wing. Congrats!
  2. Far from my usual MOCs, here come my first custom minifigs. They are all based on Star Wars The Clone War serie and the famous 501st Legion [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Captain Rex & his clones[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr From left to right: Captain Rex, Sergeant Appo, Kix, Jesse, Dogma, Havoc, Echo. Rex is the TLC minifig with custom accessories. All other clones mix custom decals, custom helmets, custom weapons, custom pauldrons. [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Quarter turn right, right![/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr Decals on arms provide real appeal and some are even different. But admittedly, the medical logo on Krix's arm is not fully correct. [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Backview[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr Back view showing again some differences. [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]6 custom clone troopers[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr The 6 custom clones with decals on their torso, back, arms and legs. Jesse has also a custom belt. Zoom on Dogma: [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Dogma[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr And now on Kix: [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Jesse[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr The Arc Troopers Havoc & Echo: [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Havoc & Echo[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr And all of my 501st as of today: [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]501st Legion[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr For your info: - Weapons come from [url=""]The Little Arms Shop[/url] - Pauldrons come from [url=""]Cape Madness[/url] - Custom helmets are from [url=""]Clone Army Custom[/url] - Decals are homemade. I scanned a sticker sheet purchased on eBay then printed (inkjet) it on an empty decal sheet (hard to find). Afterward, I had to apply varnish all over the printed sheet, using a spray (because using a pencil was diluting the color). Once your decal sheet is dry, cut carefully the decals, put them into the water and wait until they slip off their support. Apply carefully on the minifig. I also use Microscale products to ensure that decals can stick to curved surfaces (arms & legs) and on the borders. Finally, I apply one last touch of varnish so that my son can play with them. I learned a lot during the process and there are a few mistake I will not do anymore. on the bright side, I am now fully equipped to produce a battalion of clones. :) My army is progressing :mrgreen: Comments welcome...
  3. Simply brilliant, congrats!
  4. Some very interesting ideas. And thank you for sharing the file.
  5. TIEs are not far off either. :) Let's not forget the bad guys.
  6. Excellent rendering. I truly admire the level of details yo umanaged to include in your MOC. Very elegant result. What is the length of your model exactly? I had also built a [url=""]large version of the Tantive IV[/url]. But I rather concentrated on the playability (ok, with 4.5KG, it became relative). I still improve it and my next step will be to improve the head, using a brick built technic. Nice work, keep them coming anyway!
  7. A very nice hangar, indeed. There are plenty of charming details and still, nothing is overloaded. Having 3 different levels contribute a lot to its success as well. Great work.
  8. Thank you again for your very positive comments. @Zelda: not sure. I also found a picture of a similar TIE variant with 2 pods and a larger wing on top. Possibilities are endless.
  9. Thank you all for your very nice comments. @miles teg: the technic requires a thick top to make it strong. Not sure the standard TIE has room for this.
  10. I was fan of the Tyrant already but then seeing a truly original design is so great, particularly when built with such impressive skills. You have done a great job at reproducing the legendary Interdictor. The fact that you mixed both the Immobilizer and the Rebel versions does not bother me at all. The global design is great. Having it with a detailed interior and to scale with the Tyrant only adds further to the cheers. Excellent MOC, great design choice, splendid execution. It only deserved to be blogged.
  11. Nice rendering, even if I would have used a few more dark blueish grey parts on the sides to highlights the shape. Speaking of the shape, I believe the reactors should be located slightly higher, based on the following [url=""]reference image[/url]. Good work anyway!
  12. Here is my latest MOC, a TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber, also known originally as Torpedo Launcher. [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr Do not look for this TIE craft in any of the movies, anime, or comic books as you will not find it. It is based on the 3D model created in the early nineties par Marco SPitoni for his excellent animation fanfilm: "[url=""]Join the Empire[/url]". (Look from 27" and also in the credits) I then decided to build it using my bricks in order to complete and expand further my LEGO TIE collection. [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr This side view shows the technic beam used to link the top wing to the TIE body. It provides structural strength and thanks to it, you can play with the TIE and replicate any kind of space combat. [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr The rear side offers a view on an unusual feature for a TIE craft: the presence of 2 distinctive engines under the wing: [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]TIE/tb Torpedo Bomber[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr Here is a shot at the wing global shape. Note that the middle section has built using an odd number of studs in order to respect the symmetry with the body and the support pylon.

  13. Great design. And so nice from you to share 2 designs at once and the LDD as well. Nice built, keep them coming.
  14. Thank you all for the very nice comment. :)
  15. Here is the result of spending a few restful days at the seaside with a handful of arctic sets: the Goliath, a heavy arctic snowcat. It is built from parts coming from the other arctic vehicles in order to combine some of their play features. [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Arctic team in action[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr The Goliath is great at crossing any kind of difficult landscape: [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Goliath in Action[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Arctic Goliath Snowcat[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr The Goliath is packed with many features; - forward cab to host the driver and an additional passenger with room for some equipment as well; - large storage compartiment in the centre to put 2 crates; - fully equipped lab at the rear side; - tow cable; - Plenty of powerful lights to enlighten the arctic night; - remote camera on the roof; - Additional storage locations around the vehicle to clip many different tools; - radar and radio antennas. Rien de tel pour épauler l'équipe : [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Goliath deployed.[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr Here is the lab: [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Inside the Goliath[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr More pictures: [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Arctic Goliath Snowcat[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Arctic Goliath Snowcat[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Arctic team in action[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr I know making an arctic vehicle during summer and taking pictures on the beach is not perfect as background for the model, sadly, I can't change sand into snow. ;) [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Arctic team in action[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr [url=""][img][/img][/url] [url=""]Arctic Goliath[/url] by [url=""]Veynom[/url], on Flickr I love holidays.
