    SHIP recreation - EAS Agamemnon from Babylon 5

    That’s pure dead brilliant, @manglegrat. Of course I’ll post pictures.

    SHIP recreation - EAS Agamemnon from Babylon 5

    Thank you @Heuwin for that post. I'm just starting on this adventure myself, also using @manglegrat's LXF file: so your post was very timely. I was wondering why half the pictures I found online had the forward cannon flipped. Now I know. Thanks for that - it was driving me nuts. If you happen to have the Excalibur on your decal sheet, I'm happy to pay postage. PM me once you have 10 posts and we'll discuss.
  3. I believe the part used was 85941. It’s a slightly longer version of the half cylinder part.

    MOC: Lego Ideas - Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale)

    This group? https://www.facebook.com/groups/saturnvmods/. Fortunately, it's public, so anyone can browse it, even if they aren't a Facebook user. And would that be the PDF uploaded by David Welling on 24 Jun at 15:29? I can't check this link because I'm not on Facebook, but I think this should work: https://www.facebook.com/groups/saturnvmods/374219386316652/

    @DanNeely Sadly no. The quarter cylider 30562 is a bomb which has already exploded. You need 14 of them. One rattle-can of plactic-specific orange-brown paint cost me £14.... it's probably the same in dollars or euros. You do the maths.

    @SheldonF I painted a few pieces which I couldn't get hold of any other way using RAL 8023 Orange-brown paint. It is a very close match to the lego colour. It looks perfectly fine in normal light conditions. White is also a valid colour for the tank, by the way. Early missions had tanks which were painted white until NASA realised that it made no difference to heat-shielding, and that they could save a few tonnes of weight by leaving out the paint.

    Thank you very much @KingsKnight! That's fantastic. So many areas where I'm now saying, "Oh, so THAT'S how it was built!" Why the newer clips on the cargo door hinges? Is it because the old style clips are too stiff?

    75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017 MOD/MOC

    @Frenk512 Thank you very much for the breakdown of your docking port design. It's an even better design than the tank tracks that I'm currently using: Just one question - how fragile is it? Does it tend to fall apart if you take it off and put it on again?

    That looks like it’ll work just fine. my own solution was to use the pearl grey one from the Saturn set. They don’t look too bad: but if that colour really bothers you, then this is good.

    That really does look a lot simpler. Are the stacks of 1 x 2 bricks sturdy enough? In place of the red 1 x 5 technic plates, why not try an old 4-bladed propeller: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=3461#T=C This is what I used throughout. They obviously don't lock to the central axle, but it passes through them and they lock even more securely (and simply) to the sides.

    Shiva, thank you for the connector idea. I've tried it and it works beautifully.

    MOC: Lego Ideas - Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale)

    Yes, and I put long axles in the boosters also. There is still a weak point half-way up. I have to be slightly careful of it. My stabiliser fin looks like this: It's attached to four stud jumpers between the engines. It does tend to fall off if pushed hard but it comes off as one unit. I'm not sure how it could be made better without a total redesign.

    Well done Shiva - it's good to see another shuttle completed. I love the idea of using the six-blade rotor 64566 in the mid-section of the tank. I wish I'd thought of that. My solution was more convoluted, but got the job done.

    Adipa, scroll up this page of the thread to my post from March 20th 2017. "Parts List.xls" should be what you are looking for. There are also instruction booklets and - in case you need it - a Lego Digital Designer (LXF) file. I hope this helps.

    Thank you :-). Yes, I made the decals as well. I copied and pasted a bunch of images from the internet onto glossy photo sticker paper.
