  1. Can anybody share a one to one scan of the black cloth sail (http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemPic.asp?P=sailbb53) from the Black Pearl? Thanks, AC
  2. [quote name='Leonardo da Bricki' timestamp='1474255400' post='2660425'] Nice SHIP! The engines look great. Also, the color stands out, I haven't seen a tan and dark-tan vessel of this size before. The lighting is a cool addition. [/quote] Those are my faves and have always built my entries that way for the past three years! [quote name='makoy' timestamp='1474255830' post='2660430'] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Nice name. [/font][/color][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Kargador ACP60 - [/font][/color][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Definitely a fitting name for a freighter. [/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Always admire your work. Mabuhay![/font][/color] [/quote] You got it! AC
  3. The Kargador ACP60 is a cargo freighter that's like a warship with a front and aft section. This cargo freighter has been designed specifically to have the front and aft sections to be detached to accommodate the cargo/payload between them. Upon reaching the designated destination, the cargo/payload can be detached from the two ends of the freighter. The front and aft ends of the SHIP will then attach together and return for more cargo/payload to deliver. One hundred twenty eight studs or forty inches long and probably just between five hundred and one thousand bricks. Like the previous SHIPtember entries, Kargador ACP60 will make its first public appearance at BrickFair New Jersey on the last week of October. Unlike the previous two entries that were deconstructed right after BrickFair NJ for the past two years, this cargo freighter will remain built to go to more shows/events in the future.

  4. [quote name='mortesv' timestamp='1472905950' post='2650440'] Very clever! Tatooine, ISD + BR next! :D [/quote] Nah, I'll let somebody else do that. AC
  5. [quote name='Dannylonglegs' timestamp='1472872699' post='2650236'] Awesome work man! This is an excellent display of some really awesome pieces! Hopefully I'll get a chance to see it in person if I have a free weekend sometime soon! ~Insectoid Aristocrat [/quote] If you do, please let me know when as I'm just ten minutes drive from the library and can meet you up there.

  6. [color=#1D2129][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]For the whole month of September, the following MOCs will be on exhibit at the East Brunswick Public Library NJ ([url="https://www.ebpl.org/main/hours-directions.cfm"]https://www.ebpl.org...-directions.cfm[/url]). - Pisamban Maragul* - Queen Amidala - Nazgul On Mordor - Disney Vignettes* - Causeway Bridge - Terminus* - Roman Encampment* - Red Samurai Clan* - Think Tank *First public display [img]https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8652/29285574572_ff99c88944_c.jpg[/img] [img]https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8225/29285574852_ce4bd6b894_c.jpg[/img] [img]https://c1.staticflickr.com/9/8290/29387975155_26bc107a03_c.jpg[/img][/font][/color]
  7. [quote name='BrickJagger' timestamp='1472697624' post='2648850'] A very interesting toy-ception you have there. I approve. [/quote] Found after building these that others have tried it but with way bigger size. This is more similar to the actual size of the wooden toys. AC
  8. [quote name='FTG Prime' timestamp='1472666576' post='2648578'] That is such a good concept !! I can imagine doing it with other ships [/quote] Yes you can definitely use many different ships as I've mentioned with the same concept. But I'd let others try that... AC

  12. Brain teaser Lego version of the popular six piece Burr 3D cross puzzle. The six pieces were done similar to the existing designs but using the 2:5 stud/plate ratio. It's not entirely perfectly fitting in the middle as there are little half-plate gaps, but it still works and can be solved the same way as the wooden version of the toy. Making toys out of another toy seems kinda redundant and another addition to the office desk toys...

  13. [quote name='Aegis2000' timestamp='1472582333' post='2647929'] That is such a cool idea! Really neat, I'd love to see more like it! [/quote] The concept/design is pretty simple and can be applied with X-Wing/TIE Fighter, Speeders, Falcon/TIE Bomber and so on... [quote name='BrickCurve' timestamp='1472592394' post='2648037'] Great idea! It works really well. [/quote] The base have to be heavy to withstand the spinning motion. [quote name='Athos' timestamp='1472612652' post='2648194'] I wonder if you could put a motor in it to make the ships spin? Steve [/quote] Very possible but I'd leave that to others to experiment on. AC PS. Added the video on YouTube.
  14. Obi-Wan's Jedi starfighter chases Jango's Slave I across the asteroid fields. Still pursuing ideas/concepts/designs similar to previous desk toys. This time it's a mobile balancing toy that would usually have an airplane on one end and a ball on the other end. Putting in a new spin to an old concept and incorporating some iconic Star Wars ships in the mix! AC Click on the pic which will take you to the Flickr page to see it in motion...
