Very cool! Is that Ron's face Anakin's sporting? I really like how you used a past version of the N-1 fighter! I can't wait to see more!

Very nice, AC. I am instantly reminded of playing the first LSW video game from this.  :thumbup: The starfighter is a bit simplistic, but I'm glad you included it anyway.

After just seeing TPM the other day, this scene is fresh in my mind. Great recreation of it, as usual. Another great build with all the details we've come to expect out of one of your builds. I like the way you portrayed the action in the scene.

Excellent work again, AC! The scene looks very accurate. I like how you use minifigs and sets from the first waves. It gives your entries a nice nostalgic touch, even though they don't match the high quality of the MOCs they are being used in. :thumbup:

I'm lovin' the unique and effective combination of modern snot-building techniques with the use of the classic circa-99 N-1. Though I'm quite curious to know why you used it instead of the updated one (was it size/space consideration?)

Great stuff as always AC! :thumbup:

Another nice build.
I am so envious of those dark tan skateramps you've got.
So many great uses for those and I have none :cry_sad:

:oh: :wub: all that old yellow faces, and the old N-1. This is great ACPin, even better than the last :thumbup:. The recharge ports on the back wall are a great touch, and the crates and chrome engine pieces are lovely.

great build! love the back wall.

but isn`t it a bit too small? I see you had to remove back antena from the model to menage to fit fighter inside the box.

Ah ACPin you kill me. I always have a good laugh when I click on a new post and look at the image and go wow! This is amazing who is this. Then I look to left and oh yeah of course, ACPin. Still I love it. I’m sure this means you’re in the middle of building a full scale version of this. If so can’t wait to see it.  :grin:

Could be, I just picked it out of the box which I thought had the facial expression appropriate for the scene.

Sorry, never played the game so I don't know exactly what you're referring to.

After the build, it's always fun to get the action shot for the final touch.

I always like to use the older sets plus I'll leave the mods to others when it comes to vehicles/ships. Only mod in this one were the silver pieces to the engine intakes.

Thanks for the blog and you're right on about the reason/s why I used the older starfighter set.

Good amount of details where necessary do add to the overall effect of the scene.

I didn't remove the tail as there's a hole for the exhaust port at the back which you'll see in  the top one.

Nice one ACPin ! I love the details , and your posing of the figs makes the moc come alive ! Although I ust admit that after seeing all those moc's of yours through the years I was expecting the whole Bay !!Posted Image
Edit : I just read the other comms and found out you're making the whole thing . I'm looking forward to this even more than I'm looking forward to the summer sets !!

It's always good to read the other comments first so you don't wind up asking the questions that have already been answered. These modular builds are aimed to be both independent of each other or merged into bigger builds. Think about how cool it would look if you got several of these side by side of each other!  :grin:

I love the extreme level of detail here- just looking at the N-1, it would appear you even included the 'donut hole' added my ILM to make the N-1 fit in the stall!

Yes, the tail of the N-1 fits securely through the exhaust port!
