Very good design, Doc! I love it, and I think the nose is fine.
Let's just hope fallenangel wont come by to tear it shreds! :tongue:

I was actually about to compliment the brickbuilt canopy... as well as the S-foil mechanism that Psiaki borrowed from me, who adapted it from the one used by Dave Eaton, who based his off the studio model.

I'm actually an Imperial kind of guy, and I think that X-Wing is my favorite LDD MOC, well, ever.  :blush:

Command Station, this is Day 10. Code clearance Blue. We're starting our approach. Deactivate the security shield.

Midi-scale Lambda-class T-4a shuttle, the security deflector shield will be deactivated when we have confirmation of your code transmission. Stand by... You are clear to proceed.

Thus far, this is my favorite MOC from the advent calendar remake. I debated about the fin and wings, but in the end, there really was no better looking way to build them than SNOT, so I scrapped the original model, made it significantly bigger, and ended up with this. The wings do fold, though LDD won't really let you. (uncooperative Hinge Tool and a couple pieces sticking out by about a quarter of a plate) Seriously, this model looks awesome, if I do say so myself. Go download it. Get LDD if you don't have it.

I can't even begin to describe how awesome the general construction is (I love that LDD allows us to see that), so I'll just comment quickly on the measurements... the wingspan and dorsal fin on this thing are enormous... but it looks spot on! What reference did you use?

You were right Doc!  This MOC is the best so far. :thumbup: I can't wait to see what else you have in store.

It's a 3D model, not a studio model, but I used this, because there were a ton of pictures.

Amazing work. Just.. gorgeous.

:laugh: Which reminds me, I didn't have time to tweak the internal structure for strength, so if you're planning to build it physically, you might want to play around with that, first.

You're right, Doc: this IS the best build so far! :wub:   The overall shape and parts usage are nearly perfect! :oh: I especially love the round sections that the wings attach to. :thumbup:

Gotta agree with the general consensus here: This is definitely the best one yet! The accuracy and detail is superb! Keep it up!

The X-Wing is sweet but I have to agree the Imperial shuttle is the best so far - lovely  :thumbup:

":drool: :wub: :drool: :wub:", "awsome", "spot on", "What reference did you use" - It must be good because I don't think I've ever read comments like this from fallenangel  :laugh:

Day 11 has arrived.

It's Miniland-scale OOM Pilot Droid. Ugh. I hate this model. I'm convinced it simply isn't possible to represent something so skeletal at this scale with legal connections. Even the official Miniland-scale models use illegal connections.

Oooo! Very nice work on this one, but I can't help but feel the arms are a little short. Maybe I'm wrong. Can't wait for the others as they come.

The battle droid isn't that bad, it's just a rather simple creation in contrast to the awesome X-wing and Lambda class shuttle. Have you though about using technic parts for the droid? That might give it a more skeletal look and being less bulky.

Admittedly, I did not, but I was trying to capture the Miniland style of bulky, blocky, simplified shapes.

Are you sure about the size? Because Mike Crowley's B1 is considerably larger than this one.

Hm, I agree, the arms and the neck of the B1 are too short. Also, I think you might have gone overboard with the SNOT techniques and the blockiness. It looks like he swallowed a brick. :sceptic: Otherwise not bad though; it's a good start, it just needs to be refined. :wink:

Urgh.  That is not the best way to build that guy but I can't say I would do any better.

Have been watching this tread and I like it really. The figures are OK, but the ships - they are just amazing. Specially the X-Wing and the Lambda Shuttle. These two will certainly be built IRL and placed together with the UCS's...

Sorry for the wait. Was away all day today and yesterday and didn't have much time to build or upload.

Anyways, Day 12:

It's Midi-scale T-47 Snowspeeder! I'm not completely happy with the nose, but other than that, I think it turned out pretty well. Having built the minifig-scale version last year made it hard to ignore some details, notably the absence of braking flaps, but I think I got the major shapes compacted into this pretty well.
