75060 - UCS Slave I MOD/MOC

I was actually looking for a similar topic to the UCS Millennium Falcon mods tread but I couldn't find it.

The main adaptation I did was the functional boarding ramp, as demonstrated below.

It took me a while to figure it out but eventually found a solution where I didn't have to sacrifice too much of the original set.

Other changes include;

  • Bulkhead between cargo bay and crew quarters
  • ladder connecting cargo bay, crew quarters and cockpit
  • bunkbox behind pilot chair
  • conical blaster anchorages on the hulll
  • Light functionality

This was very fun to build in. There's actually a small maintenance compartment above the bed but It's impossible to see without taking apart the upper hull.

The ladder goes down to the crew quarters. Depending on the orientation of the ship, this is either a vertical or a horizontal shaft.

The pilot chair can still rotate.

The crew quarters, located below the pilot chair (in flying mode) isn't that much to talk about. The space is very limited. The structural beams within the ship limited the position of the platform. Fixing this will require some serious modifications.

The cargo bay. I used to have shelves on the starboard side as well but had to remove them in order to fit the door-ramp mechanism.

Like the crew quarters this area could also use some finishing touches but I haven't decided yet on which way to go here.

One of the light bricks shines all the way through the ship interior (the other one only in the bunk box).

To max out the available space in the crew quarters I had to place the pilot chair in it highest position. Therefor I had to change the energy shield shroud, which is located above the pilot, in order to have Boba Fett utilise his helmet gear.

That's about it, feel free to make suggestions, I'm not finished with this one yet :pir-classic:.

I like the bed.

The dishes around the cannons are nice as well but the way the cannons are attached become meh.

The macaroni tile to rounden the body near the windscreen is cool. Maybe you can find a way to improve the angle made with LBG wedges ?

The door movement is very cool. Anyway you can make the knob less visible ? Maybe a lever hidden on the back of the ship ?

As for the skirt, you should try both parts 42862/48165.

Thank you, the angled wedge bricks for the skirt I'm definitely going to look into.

Great looking mods!  The door-ramp function is very cool, and I particularly like the area at the top of the ladder.  The pass-through lined with white cheese slopes and tiles give it that M Falcon corridor 'padded' look.  The detail around the little bed looks really good, too.  Nice work!

Impressive modifications, I have always dreamed of having this UCS because It is beautiful, but always felt that the interior was lacking, I wanted so bad to have a kind of full interior as you have achieved. Simply incredible, I wish LEGO would rerelease the UCS Slave I due to the Mandalorian with an updated interior.

Really nice work with the ramp! 
Will definitely attempt to do this sometime in the future.

This is incredible! I didn't think it would be possible to cram an interior into this thing. That Ramp mechanism is really clever and just makes the model so much better.

This is absolutely perfect! I need to implement these into my Slave I. Is there any way we could get a breakdown/instructions for this beauty?

Also, I would suggest the mod that brickvault did to their slave 1.

I love this! The door mod is really well done. If only it was possible to do this for the 20th Anniversary set...

That's a beautiful mod. Strangely,  I found it on YouTube before I found it at eurobricks.

I have a UCS Slave I sealed and safely stored under my bed. I want to open it, build it, apply your mods, and then directly put it into a showcase to avoid dust.

Do you have a parts list for the additional parts used? I don't have any other parts at home right now and want to get them in one Brick.Link order before opening the UCS Slave I set.

Thank you, I'm afraid I didn't keep track of the changes, it wasn't very practical because most of the adaptations didn't work the first time. I might at some point create some kind of instructions, when it's completely finished perhaps.

While I certainly agree that the stabiliser wing anchorages could use some work, I'm not very keen on losing the 1/4 circle slopes in order to create that cavity. But it is an interesting modification nonetheless. Thanks for sharing, I'll see what I can come up with for this area...

That is strange indeed, I thought I had it on "private" on youtube so it could only be viewed via this page :pir_laugh2:.

What you're trying to do seems a bit cumbersome, a little dust is easily taken care of with a big soft paintbrush. I don't have a part list unfortunately. I would encourage building the original set first, that way you'll have a better understanding about what the possibilities are and who knows, you might come up with some other solutions.
