Well, I'm new here, but I think I've been around forums long enough to know how this works. I'd appreciate tips on everything I'm doing wrong. For some reason, my Internet browser (Safari) won't let my paste a copied URL into the 'Insert Image' dialogue box, so I don't know if it will display properly :hmpf_bad: .

This MOC has been one of my ongoing projects on MOCpages; I've already gone through three renditions. It includes opening dorsal hanger bay doors, independently posable turbolasers, and the option of full suspension :cry_happy: ; to name the major points of interest.
Finished February 2010; see more on MOCpages.

I love it! It's completely spot on. I am a huge fan of Micro-mid scale MOCs and you nailed it.

Nicely done 'brickdoctor'! :thumbup: For such a small-scaled ship you managed to put a lot of details, I simply love all the greebling effects. Maybe you could make a few of these to make a whole fleet. Great job once again and welcome to EB!

Micro? If this is mini-scaled, how can this be micro-scale? Looks more like Midi to me.
Anyway, nice model with great detail! But I'm not really buying the whole "suspense" thing. :tongue:

Don't know if you've read the LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary, but it does mention stability as a factor in official LEGO models. This thing has more illegal connections than I can count, and the only reason it's survived so long is that the suspension prevents the top half from crushing the bottom half.

"Micro-scale" simply refers to a model smaller than mini-scale. Mini-scale is approximately 1:200. For comparison, I like to use minifig hands as the height of a mini-scale person. I remember this model as being smaller than 1:900, but I don't remember the exact number.

This is as good as the 120$ minifig version.

It looks spot on!

Eh, only if you're pressed for money and space. I really thought the stacked plates design of the Midi-Falcon was fairly unimpressive. TLG's greatest SW set, IMO, was the Mindstorms Droid Developer Kit. Really, how can you beat a robotic LEGO R2-D2? (the sequel, Dark Side Developer Kit, also had the first walking AT-AT, among other things :wub: )

But really, this kicks... cans?

Cheers, and I promess not o start more conversations that deviate from the topic(if I can), even thought his is probably the best Moc this size, it's like the midi scale millennium falcon... except it looks good...=D

Hasta La Vista.
