[MOC] UCS Tantive IV - CR-90 Corvette

Recommended Posts

This model is really cool, much better the official LEGO version! I would be happy to build this if the instructions were available.

Excellent work! You have captured many difficult shapes!

 

The Corvette is actually 150 meters long, the 126 number is from the older CR-70 variant. The numbers have been moxed up so now both CRs are 126 meters in many sources.

@Kit Bricksto this thread has me so excited. I have been checking back here hourly to see if there are any updates. Does anyone know if the intent is for these instructions to be shared? I am very disappointed in Legos most recent tantive release. I would MUCH rather spend my money towards this beauty

Hi everyone!

I am very sorry that progress has been so slow on the instructions but to assure you that I am still intending to finish them, here's a little update on what I'm up to right now:

I have finished the instructions for the main body of the ship right back to the fins that connect it to the engine block. I am now splitting the digital model of the engine block into sections for the instructions since Blueprint can't handle the file for the whole thing.. I hope to get the engine block finished in the next couple of weeks so that the only things left to do then are checking the instructions for inconsistencies and mistakes and figuring out the (digital) logistics of selling them.

I really appreciate how many people are so intent on building my model for themselves and really don't want to disappoint you guys. That being said the process of making these instructions is quite tedious and this is the first project (except the AT-RT :D) that I have made proper instructions for. I hope you'll stick with me and I'll do my best to speed up work a bit!

As for some stats about the build:

Parts count: 5701 (to be checked once the instructions are finished)

Estimated parts-cost according to BrickLink: ~450€ (as of March 2019)

Thanks again for your patience and stay tuned for further updates on my progress!

Thank you! I must say that I had hoped to be able to steal a lot of ideas from your fantastic model but the difference in scale really made that impossible.. :D

That's what I had feared... I had seen some sources where it was 126m long and others that said 150.. As 126 happened to fit the scale I was building at very well I decided to go for that. Well, I guess it's not perfectly 1/3 minifig scale then but who really cares anyway.. :P Thanks for the information though, the inconsistency of sources really bugged me when I was building this!
