    No problem, and that's perfect. Thanks for the file!

    Hey @blbills it looks like you are sharing your own link to the file. The link text looks like "https://www.dropbox.com/preview/Public/T-70 complete.io?role=personal". That link will only work for you, as it assumes the browser is logged in with your account. To share with everyone, you need to go to the .io file in File Explorer, right click it, and select the option which says "Share" (and on Windows at least has a little dropbox icon beside it). You then go to the bottom of the dialog which appears and click "copy link". You should get a link which looks more like this: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zjmn7jlf4ybhtv3/Executor.lxf?dl=0 (And yeah, that's a lego LXF file for a midi-scale model of the Executor SSD I did a while back, based on the work of Pelleaon - thread is here.) I hope this helps! -- David

    The Tribute to The Razor Crest - Released!

    That looks great . The bars with clips look fantastic in there. re: the holes, if you look at some good reference material, e.g.do a google search for the Hasbro Haslab Razor Crest model, there is a ring of vents right behind the engine opening. I bet your holes match up pretty well.

    I really like this one. I may give it a go myself. Thanks also @Jeracfor sharing other ideas. I like them all better than the clip tiles .

    Can't do much about the friction, but how about the inverted bracket plus a plate? https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=36840#T=C&amp;C=86

    May I suggest a slight alternative? This creates a slightly larger diameter (8 studs as opposed to 7) which ought to work better with Jerac's original front. I don't have enough pieces to try this myself right now but I might give it a go at some point.

    This looks very interesting. It looks better than the 1x1 clips for sure.

    Tell a lie, it was this part, not ARC 170 at all, sorry. I did think about using the ARC part but it was too small. I haven't come across that train part and can't seem to find it in the Bricklink catalog. Do you have a link perchance? @Hold0511I think you crashed Jerac's brain. Anyone here know how to reboot a Master Builder?

    The Tribute to The Razor Crest - Released!

    Yes to the ARC-170 parts. I think the red doesn't look too bad, but I might design some stickers and put them on blank dishes at some point. Thank you for the nice comments :-).

    This looks absolutely stunning. It's beautiful, I love it. The patchwork effect of slightly different colours really helps sell it. I also feel better that someone else felt it worthwhile getting out the paint for this model .

    Not too hard. The trickiest bit was moving the centers of the engines out by a stud to accomodate the extra girth. I've been looking for the "perfect" Razor Crest engine fronts for a while now. Yours come close in many ways,but I wanted something that was mine :-). Thank you for the nice words about the cockpit and guns.

    The Tribute to The Razor Crest - Released!

    I finally got my build finished this week. As you can see, I made a few minor adjustments. It isn't visible, but internally I substituted a lot of pieces which were not going to be seen (basically anything tan or brown was fair game, barring pieces for the cockpit and sides). I was building my own MOC of the Razor Crest when Jerac posted his first pictures. I had my own engines and guns 90% completed. They were about the same scale, so I decided to use them on Jerac's model. I used parts of Jerac's gun design, as I liked it better. I've shortened the cockpit tube and moved the windows around, and lengthened the area in front of the escape pod to compensate. Finally, I used the three-piece window solution (because I had the parts) and created a set of custom stickers to complete the cockpit. Here is a copy of my window stickers, in case any of you want them for your own builds:

    It took me weeks to build it: but I went slowly and savoured the process. Enjoy!

    I read what Jerac suggested, and did it. I used Bracket 99207. https://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=99207&amp;colorID=11&amp;in=A I put it 1 plate further away from the location of the hinge brick. I ended up removing the hinge brick as it was just getting in the way.
