[Instructions] Mortesv's CR-90 Corvette - Blockade Runner (Tantive IV)

Recommended Posts

So...............which Tantive IV should I build?  This one or the new official Lego one (75244)   Are both worth building or is one clearly superior?

Need you ask? The MOC is clearly superior in every way. Do you want to go the easy route to have what any person can have for bucks or put in the effort to have something special? Here's some moto for you:

I recently made this model again and decided to make a time-lapse this time around!

Review coming soon! In the meantime I may experiment with modding it to the single stand version, but am not sure quite exactly how to go about it.

Nice review! Yes, the single stand version that EKae and I reverse engineered is not as stable as your "official" version but works very well. No issue if you keep the stand short, but dicier as you make it taller. This would be a fun project to go back and redo with some of the new parts that Lego now has out that were not available 3 years ago (!) when we all worked on this beauty. Mortesv hinted at a different way to do the fins but never publish the idea that I recall. Maybe an updated set of instructions could capture the blue variant from Rogue One.

Have no ldd File for all changes but basically i used a 32555 as it was more stable than a few studs longer spine. Something like this:

But with that change you also need to change the engine section a bit, as the height would be wrong if you just remove a technic brick and use 32555 instead.

Very interesting. I'll definitely take a look some time in the future at modding the instructions for this model and possibly creating a Rogue One version.

Currently I'm working on a really awesome MOC I can't wait to share, but once that wraps up later this spring I'm estimating, I will put this model on the ole To-Do List once again.
