    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?

    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.

    I was having similar issues. This fixed it for me.

    10212 UCS Imperial Shuttle Mod

    I modified my UCS shuttle about six years ago. Flickr Album: https://flic.kr/s/aHsjXcYDdm I also did the ramp, an interior and tried to motorise the wings. I learned a few things which might be of use to you: 1) It is possible to remove the entire top fin and fit a full interior. 2) If you have two "M" motors, they quickly get out of sync with one another , so that (especially on the upstroke) one wing is moving at a different speed to the other. I never tried a single "L" motor so I have no idea if that would have the same issue.
