Like last year we (The Dutch Moonbase team) were asked by Hein-Jan Kemperman from The Little Arms Shop to help in building new MOC's for the Star Wars Event in june 2011 in Legoland Germany.
This year was a particular challange because we had to build all new MOC's as last years MOC'S were taken down.
Sky4walker (Mike van Leeuwen) started on a large scale build of Tatooine where several scenes from the 6 movies were depicted. After 4 months of hardcore building he ended up with a 7 x 1.8 meter layout.
I started on a build that started as a joke. On Legoworld 2010 in Zwolle (NL) I was challenged by Mike and Hein-Jan to build a 10 meter long trench from the film A New Hope. Well, I accepted ...
It took me 3 month of building to complete a 6 x 1.2 meter trench including X-wing's, Tie fighters and Y-wings. All build to a 2/3 minifig scale. Tricky but it worked.
It wasn't 10 meters long but I was out of parts, baseplates and space in my hobby-room.
Other MOC"s were the enormous and highly detailed Droid Factory by a German builder, a hangar with ships from Mike's son Mitchel and a scene by Hein-Jan with the Millenium Falcon.
The event stared sad as Hein-Jan's father pasted away the first day the guys were in Gunzburg. Hein-Jan returned to Holland and Mike started alone with setting up the tent with the help of some young ladies from the park.
The event was a great succes. Just have a look at the pictures and our WEBSITE as pictures talk louder than words.
