    (Work in Progress) EMD F7A in 8-Wide

    Great job capturing the essence of the F7! Especially the "sad eyes" front windows. Hope to see some plans made available so that it can be "kit-bashed" into other road color schemes which are endless!

    [MOC] Hammerhead Corvette - Rouge One

    Not trying to be a troll but your model is very similar to this version which has been for sale for over a year now. Is this what you used to make your version? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lego-Star-Wars-UCS-Hammerhead-Corvette-INSTRUCTIONS-ONLY-Collectors-Edition-MOC/182776860292?hash=item2a8e598e84%3Ag%3ADXAAAOSw409ZwXRy&_sacat=0&_nkw=hammerhead+corvette&_from=R40&rt=nc&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR1.TRC0.A0.H0.Xhammerhead+corvette.TRS0.TSS0 I used the plans and built a squadron for my fleet: DSC02092 by Scott Roys, on Flickr

    Y-Wing after-burner visual building guide

    It's the same stand as the UCS Y-Wing, set #10134.

    Building BMR Freight cars

    Here is some good news for the crowd. Looks like then new Harry Potter set #75952 (Newts Case of Magical Creatures) will re-introduce a part that we have all been wanting: Part # 48336, reddish-brown plate with handle on the side! Yes, we can finally build the PS-1 box-cars in a very prototype color and not break the bank! Here is a shot of the set with the suspected parts circled in red. One could assume that the set has at least 4 in it. I wish I could say that I was the eagle-eye that spotted it, but Cale Leiphart noted it in a Facebook post and I thought that ya'll might like to know.

    TIE Fighter & TIE Interceptor

    Any plans to do the TIE Brute from the Solo movie? Or just include it as an option with the regular TIE?

    ......and 6 to 8 weeks delivery time! Good to know that though....

    TIE Fighter & TIE Interceptor

    I'm not the best one to ask that question as I had a bunch of parts, ordered a bunch of parts and built in multiples. Some where, Jerac posted info on the basic cost of parts. The regular TIE should only run about $100, I think. The bomber is the most expensive as it has the highest part count. I will give you one warning, though. Since these plans have hit the market, the price of Part number 88293 (Light Bluish Grey, Round Corner 3x3x2 Dome top) has become a little scare and expensive. You need eight per ship (expect the bomber).

    TIE Fighter & TIE Interceptor

    I have really enjoyed building these model. I should have taken better notes on the builds but overall, the plans have been very clear. I did assemble all the hinges before putting together various sub-assemblies. The bomber is the most difficult build with the way the ends of the tubes narrow down to match the 6x6 dishes on each end. I've got a couple of Interceptors to go to finish out what I want to build for display and am working on some stands. Anybody out there have a good design?
  9. All the info you need is in the first page of this post. Just send him an email.

    [MOC] MG-100 Bomber (1:250 Scale)

    Oh, no! Another Star Wars MOC with those hard-to-find screw drivers! They do make great guns though, don't they! That's a super model and will be a great addition to the 1/250th scale fleet.

    Steam locomotive Instructions

    Here's a link to one of the more accomplished steam engine builders and seller of instructions: https://store.bricklink.com/AggieSava?p=AggieSava#/shop?o={"showHomeItems":0} The Brick Model Railroader guys have a stream locomotive in the works which we will hopefully see this year. Here's a link to the Lego set 10194 Emerald Night instructions that show how they geared their engine. https://www.lego.com/biassets/bi/4611661.pdf The seconds book shows how the Motor and IR receiver were installed: https://www.lego.com/biassets/bi/4581168.pdf Here's a link to mods that we have made to the EN running gear to improve performance. https://forum.brickset.com/discussion/15407/emerald-night-10194-running-gear-improvements#latest Hope this helps!

    Building BMR Freight cars

    How cool is that! Any shots of how you built the open door since that is a pretty significant departure from the BMR plan?

    SFS TIE/x1 Advanced

    I don't see why you couldn't just chop off a short piece of 3mm rigid hose and use it in that spot. It's not seen and so as long as it holds the robot arms (which it will just fine) it will not matter. Just depends on how much of a purist you are. (Oops, as the master says!)

    SFS TIE/x1 Advanced

    I'm about to place an order for the TIE Collection as I have been looking for something to build and am not the best at designing things. Thanks for sharing!

    [MOC] nanofigure-scaled AT-AT

    @pharmjod: Did you just make it over here from Brickset? Anyway, you need to have 10 post I believe before you can PM.
