Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello Community, I would like to say hello ...

I read this site over a year now and before I post something, I should introduce myself ...
Well, I am made in Germany, my age is something about 50+ years
and I am interested in Lego Star-Wars models.

Here are some pictures of my Star-Wars spaceship interpretations (MOD) ...


Thank you very much and best regards lGhgRUknVTqTiCKIKGrq.png

Hello community,


to give some background information about the model:

It is a Fury-Class Interceptor II / ECR.

That means it represents the Electronic-Combat-Reconnaissance variant.

So it includes:

- a stronger hyperdrive

- improved armament and defense components

- an advanced electronic reconnaissance and sturgeon system.


To the structure:

The holder of the inner sidewalls is based on the ideas of billyamy. They were a little modified by me, so the + rod was raised by a plate thickness to achieve a better centering of the side plates.

The engines are based on images by Marco Cheung (I think they were from him).

At this point, many thanks to the gentlemen for the inspiration!


The upper wings were set by me with two other ball heads, they now rest like the lower wings.

All in all, my goal was to fix all the parts so that they would not rattle any more .

Well, I managed to stiffen the model a bit.

 

To the look of the model:

It should look, if not old, at least revised / repaired. Therefore the different colored sheets and attachments.

They simply make more variety, more details and the model just look better.

(The ECR variant has been used often and much in the Outer-rim-area ...)

As far as the story.

Great to see someone who loves the Fury as much as I do!  I know you said you were trying to make it look old but truth be told it looks a little bit too old, busy, and almost junky to me with all the greebling and details you've added, but that's just my opinion.  You've done a great job filling in the wings a la @billyamy, and the cannons look great! I really like the trans orange 1x2 plates around the engines, it looks very slick and the landing gear was sorely needed.  Additionally great job on the rear of the ship on the "back door" section, it looks nice!  Did you make any changes to the interior compartments?

Hello DrMutton Chops,

thank you for your reply and your constructive review.

 

First of all, I opened the conopy and found that I had just added a computer panel (1x2 / on the right side) to the cockpit interior.

 

As far as the side walls and upper and lower wing surfaces are concerned, I have to say that I have tried different variants.

The simple possibility only with black nubs, than black, smooth panels and panels in combination with ventilation grids / vents.

As a result, you get a clean, slimline spaceship of normal operational service.

I am convinced that the model would be perfectly combined with a TIE-Fighter or TIE-bomber.

 

But ...

at this stage, I came up with the idea of sandblasting different, smooth panels to dull its surfaces, just to get a change of color ...

Well, that was not a good idea in this case, because it meant making the parts unusable for another use.

Under the line, I was glad to have the parts at all.

So I had to decide. The answer shows a used, under front conditions repaired spaceship for special operations sorties.

Maybe the story (and thus the model) changes, if I get a model that could be used as a supplement - we'll see.

So far.

 

Greetings

Miller

Hello Community,

here I show you another model of my small collection.

(I love the combination of sand with gray!)

 

LEGO Star-Wars Set: Sandspeeder 75204

The changes are relatively few and simple.

- installation of a 1x2 stone in sand color in the cockpit frame (to stabilize the hood).

- The attachment of two under-wing stabilizers.

- The addition of a winch at the rear, as well as a slight revision of the rear section

and a revision of the laser cannons with a few attachments.

 

Thanks for watching

Miller

Now to the cause of all evil ...

 

My first Lego kit after nearly 45 years.

I have only carefully revised it so that I can live with it.

 

- new laser cannons

- new panels

- some new position lights

- two new swiveling exhaust outlets
