[MOC] MINI Razor Crest (The Mandalorian)

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody

I thought I would take a short break from building stuff from the animated series and build something “real”.

Also what better way to celebrate the launch of the first live action Star Wars TV series than by building something out of LEGO?!  Unfortunately being in the UK I might have to wait to actually watch it.  

Anyway I present my MINI version of the Mando’s starship ‘The Razor Crest’.  And I must say I am really pleased with how this little model turned out. 

I am especially pleased with how the engines have turned out.  At first I was not sure how to attach them and keep them at the right level but in the end I settled on the minifigure neck brackets.  The engines themselves are built around a 1x1 brick with studs on the sides and the two ends of the engines are connected with a 4L Bar.  I also think those grey ingot pieces give the shape perfectly.

The ship also goes from 1 stud wide to 2 and back again so I could use those new triangle tiles for the rear ramp section.

I have also made the usual ‘Planets’ style display with the new Mandalorian minifigure.

I could go on but I will let the model speak for itself.

Let me know what you think.

Jon

PS. Is it just me or does this ship remind anyone else of the ‘Serenity’ from Firefly?

Thanks very much.  I don't have the free time to do instructions I'm afraid but I will try and post some exploded pictures in the next week or so to show how it was built.

I like this one. Looks great.
Always cool, those tiny creations. So tiny and so detailed.

I find interesting that your not using the gun from the set. In the show I absolutely loved the fact that the Mandalorian uses the gun from the Christmas Special. In the set though, the gun is mailed in (IMHO) and really deserves a mold.

It is on his back. He does have more than one gun after all!

Really nice. The quality of the photos make it look like a little work of art.

Yes it is a very nice design.  There is definitely Something about being built as a model rathe than CGI.

Not to turn this into a thread about the show.. but..  Perhaps one of the reasons I like the Mandalorian is because it feels more like the original Star Wars. This is sort of a funny way to look at it, but I wonder if having a TV budget (albeit a big TV budget) helped force the producers to shy away from too much CGI.

Thank you :)

Thanks for the interest and nice comments but as I have previously said I will not be preparing instructions as I do not have the time with work and family commitments.

i have also been ill the last week so not got around to taking and posting the exploded pictures yet. It is not that complicated a build so those pictures should give you what you need as and when I get round to them.

Hello everyone, as promised here are some pictures of the build in various stages of completion and taken apart.  This should allow anyone who so wishes to build this little model.  If anyone requires any further help with the build just reply below.  Happy building.

thank you very much for sharing the MOC idea, and even better the instruction step by step, BTW, the way you display mini ship and MF and label are very impressive

Thanks again. I must admit I can’t take all the credit for the displays. The LEGO planets sets were a favourite of mine after all!
