What is the approx brick count?
I have no idea :laugh: I guess something between 5000 and 10000

..Can you fold the wings?
Yes, it can, there is a mechanism using technic liftarms and cogwheels to fold/unfold the wings. Maybe I'll take some pictures of it.



I put some more photos to my Brickshelf folder, but unfortunately BS is currently offline.

definitely interested in instructions. I love this and your Venator. I'm putting up with the lego versions so far, but your MOCs are hugely better (and hugely huge!) :P

Stunning work indeed, but IMO the ship looks from the side little bit thick and there are also some discrepancy in the back of the ship.. But I like the overall look.

This is awesome!  You've definitely captured the fighter.  I especially love the engine intakes, but the whole ship is gorgeous.  Great job!

Pretty! :wub:
I wish I could build something like this, but I prefer building in System scale rather than UCS, so if I wanted to make an accurate ARC-170, I would have to make it with plates instead of SNOT. :hmpf_bad:

Well, I agree that it's little bit more higher than it should be (1 or 2 bricks), but I can't see any inaccuracies at the back. I used mainly pictures from the movie as a reference. But maybe I overlooked something...

Great to hear instructions are coming along! And fast too!! Are you working on it in MLCAD or LLD?

Does this set on a stand? I couldn't see one in the pics on Flickr or Brickshelf?!

I have to say, excellent MOC and use of SNOT techniques, though I imagine at that size that kind of structure must be very fragile. Also, I'd love to be able to build such a great ship, yet I worry, that with the forthcoming instructions I still won't be able to build this simply because of how expensive that many pieces is. Once again, I congratulate you on what I can most certainly call the single greatest ARC-170 moc out there.

Now that I have had a chance to "flip" through the instructions, all I can say is WOW!

The engines, the mechanics for the wings opening and closing, and nose are, IMO, awesome. Lots of pieces to achieve those shapes! Lots of trial and error, too, I assume?!

Thanks for the instructions. I for one, will be adding this to my collection soon.

Thanks again, Jamie
