  1. Wonderful TIE-Bomber. Keep them coming!
  2. I realise I never posted pictures showing the cargo capacity of my Mobquet: Mobquet Transport in Action by Veynom, on Flickr Inside a Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr Inside a Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr
  3. Nice attempt at a ship that few people still remember today. Keep on building. If you ever decide to share the LDD, I would be interested in it. ;)
  4. Nice rendering of a not so appealing ship and kudo for the interior. I do enjoy the holo star destroyer.
  5. Thank you very much for sharing this very nice rendering of the snowspeeder along with the full instructions.
  6. Nice ones. :)
  7. Here is my entry for the SHIPtember 2016 contest. Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr This year, I decided to build a Mobquet Medium Transport coming straight from the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Those among you who played to the X-Wing Alliance videogame or read the Dark Empire comics book must maybe remember it. Length: 104 studs Width: 34 studs This is my 5th SHIP. Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr A small zoom on its "head": Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr And on the back, with the engine exhausts: Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr Please note that the back side is not fully conform to the original pictures. Normally, there should be 2 large engines at the bottom-read side. However, for playability reasons, I have decided not to display them. By removing them, the MOC can strongly land on the bottom repulsors and is much sturdier. My build technic is mainly about cladding panels around a strong technic backbone. I am still working on the inside as I want to make it playable for my son. However, here is a small sneak preview of one of the bays. More pictures later. Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr A few features: A handle to easily carry it (and it is not too heavy according to my son) Opening panels on each sides (4 total) and on the top (also 4) in order to easily access the inside. Side panels can be used as access ramps A few visible studs inside the bays in order to attach small vehicles and ships Rear bay transport capacity: 6 speeder bikes (Empire or Clone Wars style) OR 4 speeder bikes & 2 pallets of equipment (small repair area) OR any 6 of the vehicles usually found within battle packs Central bay transport capacity: any of the below lines (all tested successfully) 2 Tank Droids (75015) 1 Mandalorien speeder 1 Jedi fighter (Aethersprite) 2 Geonosian fighters or Canon 2 clone light artillery guns 1 speeder bike with side-car Plenty of crates, or troops or whatever A few pictures from the build : I started by measuring the length, just to have an idea of what I ned to build SHIPtember 2016 Day 1: The beginning of the journey by Veynom, on Flickr Then I try transforming it into a strong backbone (with the handle, it has to be strong) SHIPtember 2016 Day 4: Assembling the backbone by Veynom, on Flickr After the first cargo area, I start the second, while testing the cladding technic. SHIPTEMBER going forward. by Veynom, on Flickr The idea of a double floor for the rear bay is born here .... simultaneously with my fear of not having enough plates to cover the entire surface. Ultimately, it was ok but I have no more black, dark blueish grey or green plates anymore. SHIPTember 2016 Day 27 by Veynom, on Flickr Almost finished .... on one side at least. The second side was still empty and panel-less. Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr And a small image from the X-Wing Alliance game so that you may compare. I hope you enjoy it!
  8. Being a big fan of color variants, I can only applaud your red Y-Wing. Congrats!
  9. 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 Captain Rex & his clones by Veynom, 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. Quarter turn right, right! by Veynom, 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. Backview by Veynom, on Flickr Back view showing again some differences. 6 custom clone troopers by Veynom, on Flickr The 6 custom clones with decals on their torso, back, arms and legs. Jesse has also a custom belt. Zoom on Dogma: Dogma by Veynom, on Flickr And now on Kix: Jesse by Veynom, on Flickr The Arc Troopers Havoc & Echo: Havoc & Echo by Veynom, on Flickr And all of my 501st as of today: 501st Legion by Veynom, on Flickr For your info: - Weapons come from The Little Arms Shop - Pauldrons come from Cape Madness - Custom helmets are from Clone Army Custom - 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...
  10. Simply brilliant, congrats!
  11. Some very interesting ideas. And thank you for sharing the file.
  12. TIEs are not far off either. :) Let's not forget the bad guys.
  13. 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 large version of the Tantive IV. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
