Charger C70 MOC
Posted 24 May 2012 - 02:26 PM
Hello after 25 years away from Lego I started building again because of my son. He is deeply into Clone Wars, so I thought after a few test builds I'll try something bigger. Important was to make the MOC playable for my kids, so it had to be stable and close to minifig scale.
I ended up with a MOC of the charger C70 retrofit in 2/3 minifigscale, which is 1,52m length and 0,8m width. The proportions are not exactly right to keep it playable. The cockpit is 10% too big so 2 minifigs can sit side by side, the rear a bit too small to keep weigt and size down...
I realized after a while into the build that my color choice of light grey was wrong, since many bricks are only available in light bluish grey. It does bother me less than I thought thou.
The capsule unter the cockpit features some beds and a converence situation and can be released with a click switch. It then falls down out of the mount.
Since i had a hard time building at night, I didn't put as much work into the details as I would have liked. So the landing gear is not as detailed as I wished and I just did use some old computer bricks for the console... But well...
Hope you like it.

Could you please resize your pictures to a maximum of 800 x 600 when you get the chance?
Thanks for sharing this, it looks great.

And despite you mentioning the oversize of the cockpit/undersize of the rear, it still retains a really nice look to it from the source version =D
And there is an interior as well! Very much a nice clean build there :)

I am planning to add some armor to the surfaces in the middle section. Other than that the charger in the series seems to be really smooth. So I don't want to over do that.

The only constructive criticism i can think of, is that the exterior has a lot of large bland surfaces. I know it's a pretty smooth ship without much greebling, but maybe you could use some tiles to create the appearance of hull plating?

Just a minor point but the Consular-class was the one from the films, the Charger-class was from TCW .
