It's Midi-scale RZ-1 A-wing! If nothing else, I've taken from this building experience a much increased respect for those who build A-wings. All the curves in this thing are boggling. In the end, at this scale, I just went with straight SNOT, but I'm still not really happy with it. Can't think of another way to do it, though.

I think I may have to build this version!

Really?? I love it, it stands as one of the best in this topic for me. Just a small point the tips of the guns are still red .

But the A-Wing i like even better, i think you captured the basic shapes of the model very well here!

My favourites are as follows:
i) Imperial Shuttle
ii) Slave 1
iii) Millennium Falcon
And a big thankyou for including the LDD files, I'm definitely going to build the Shuttle at some point

2nd, for a Lego newb when it comes to computer building, what is LDD and what programs open up the files you have attached? I would love to tinker with some of these and build them myself. Thanks.

You should be able to open Doc's files with this after you've download them. Cheers, Robin

It's a tree! I debated about what to build today. In the end, I decided to go with this sort of all-purpose tree. I use these for Castle and Heroica MOCs, but the basic design, based on the MMV tree, can be used for a variety of purposes. (I was thinking this would work well in a MINI-scale Endro vignette or diorama)

And last but not least; merry Christmas Doc'. You really gave us a good time by posting your great creations on a daily basis. I think I can speak for all of us if I say it was really exciting to see what designs you came up with for all the vehicles and figures. Thanks for that.
And also to the others members of Eurobricks; merry Christmas.

To finish it all off:
My LDD TIE Collection, including the TIE/in from my forthcoming proper post for the Jedi Community Build.
TIE Advanced x1
Merry Christmas, everyone!
And yes, Fallenangel, I realize the above picture makes evident the problems with the proportions of the TIE x1.

This is really a great choice for a last model. So many great little things about the TIE/in:
Nearly spot-on angles for the panels? Check.
SNOTed pylons? Check.
All ten guns (including some NPU with the pistols)? Check.
Darkened sensor array? Check.
Aft hinge? Check.
One should especially note the wonderfully done engine area, with cheese slopes around a steering wheel. Though I should add a small note... that small area in the middle of the cheese? I do believe that's a window. One could simply replace the round plate, stud, and inverted saucer attached to the ring with ones in black, or even remove them, in which case I would also add:
Inclusion of rear mounting point and corresponding armature? Check.
Another small point; as with your x1, I also think you could have included the darker bits visible through the lower half of the windscreen. But the highlights of this model make that nitpick insignificant.
Finally, congratulations on the completion of your Advent calendar!
