anyway, it's brilliant!  :oD
sure, it's very old stuff, not particularly sophisticated or realistic, but he did a great job!
as a kid i also tried to build the x wing (who didn't!) but i never did all these mocs! i'd really like to see that isd from up close!

Cool, isn't it?  The best part are the ghosts which are supposed to be snowtroopers; Best of all is the ISD he made back then; almost a lookalike of what LEGO launched themselves...

Well for the pieces of lego that were available at the time i think that this is by far the best moc's of its time, as for that ISD that is a thing of beauty and i doubt many of us could do better.

I remember seeing that ages ago. Considering the parts available back then, it's truly amazing!

I like Leia's room in Cloud City. Well done. It even has this strange spiral sculpture in the middle.

Wow, that's great!  :-D

It's kind of like seeing the story told with those Ralph McQuarrie visualization paintings, before the looks of the characters, beasts, and tech were totally nailed down all the way.
Great use of the parts of the time Posted Image

Fantastic!  Some of his ships are spitting images for the official versions that Lego later made themselves..... poor fellow was ahead of his time!

I REALLY like the way he did Yoda.  I have often wished Lego's version was more like that, with the standard minifig-shaped head.  Booooo to too-realistic molded heads!
