[MOC & Instructions] Renegade Runner & Imperial Flagship ~ Remake

Recommended Posts

I finally did it!
The first two of my ships are now finished!
After the Baracuda Bay appeared, I wanted to renew my old ships as well.

I started with the 6268 Renegade Runner.

To be honest, the ship is nothing more than a nutshell without a cabin, upper deck, etc.
The figureheads of the old ships were also rather poor - if the ship received one at all.


In contrast to the Baracuda, I also bought the Runner a monkey. :pir_laugh2:


I also tried to use a few old design elements from the old sets so that they had a certain recognition value.


On Flickr I have more (and bigger) pictures of the ship:
6268 Renegade Runner – Neuauflage

If any of you want to recreate the ship, I have also created a Instruction.

For a better overview I create a second post for the next ship ^^

The 6271 Imperial Flagship was a lot more difficult to redesign.
I spent a long time tinkering, especially at the rear.


I already announced the new crew at Post your Pirate Crew.


And of course there are more pictures on Flickr:
6271 Imperial Flagship - Neuauflage

I also created a Instruction here.

I have had the original ship since I was 5 or 6.
And I'm more than happy with the new one!

The next big project will be the 6286 Skull's Eye Schooner!
This will definitely be a real challenge given the size of the ship.
Let's see if I can do it over the summer ^^
I think I will then cannibalize the Creator Set 31109.

Rummaging the internet for MOC ideas couldn't hurt either ~

I think you got a nice grip on the nostalgia and also one leg reaching into the new wave design. I quite like both of the remakes!

Thank you!

For the most part, I first created the ships using the studio program.
But with more complicated things like the sloping rear or the door, I first had to practice with real Lego bricks to see if that was possible.

I once made some comparison pictures for my two remakes. :pir-classic:

The Imperial Flagship:






And the Renegade Runner:

Thank you for the posting! :pir-grin:

I also created a new Design from the 6286 ship, the Skull Eye Schooner!

Until now, this is my biggest project. :pir-classic:

Well, since it's already been bumped, I might as well chime in.

I'm sorry that I missed this the first time around.  I've always liked the old Imperial flagship, underpowered though it was, so I generally like seeing what others make of her (some day I might actually own one of my own, too!).  I have to say I like the Runner better, though.  It's a bit understated, and doesn't make her disproportionately tall.  The Imperial flagship makes it a bit tall for my liking, but Lego tends to do that with their Imperial ships, so while I give it points off for lack of realism, those points are immediately recouped (perhaps more than recouped) by the classic Lego feel your redesign gives.

Altogether and individually high quality work on both.
