    MOC AT-TE Midi scale

    Hello I recently purchased Captain Rex's AT-TE and it was a truly enjoyable build. The AT-TE has always been one of my favourite vehicles of the Prequel Trilogy, but Cap'n Rex's AT-TE really revitalised my interest and the mechanical Christmas beetles.. I love midi scale builds; I think its a scale that works really good with Lego (not to mention cost-effective), and so I have attempted my own midi-scale AT-TE. I know there have already been some incredible MOC midi AT-TEs, but I hope this brings something unique to the party. I think I might have to try and give it the Captain Rex treatment later on. Thanks for taking a look; criticism and suggestions are always welcome.

    MOC AT-TE Midi scale

    I'm with you there; I was also thinking of trying some other colours like blue, or maybe dark green. I'm not ashamed to admit cute is always one of my main goals, so thank you for noticing! Thanks so much for all your kind comments, I really appreciate it!

    Cheers juke!
  4. I'm really loving the 501 variant, some really great techniques make the cockpit spot on!

    Zug Zug! Remember the War2 Orc Great Hall?

    This is cool! I love strategy game art, like star craft and what not. I reckon the small/skewed scale of buildings and vehicles can work really well in Lego form. Keep at it!
  6. Hi everyone I recently visited my local RAAF base museum, which has on display these two gorgeous beasts. I've created these in 1:48 scale. Although it doesn't leave much room for features, its still large enough for retractable landing gear and snugly fits a minifig. I'd love to try and make a few more vintage planes at this scale, and maybe try my luck with something a little larger, perhaps 1:40? Much inspiration for these came from Daniel Siskind and Ralph Savelsberg I hope you like them, SimonJC.

    Kolobrzeg Lighthouse

    This looks so good, the colour scheme works really well with the building techniques. Very impressive.

    TSJ - Kiyonobu Military Centre

    This is amazing, every inch of it showcases clever part usage. It's so impressive.
  13. Hello Here is the latest for my work-in-progress village, and my favourite so far. I reckon the colours work well together, and I'll stick to bright colours for my next building. I'm pretty happy with the rocks, but they are so parts/labour intensive! I have a new respect for large-scale landscaper Mockers. I might have to rethink the scale of this village... Anyway, I hope you like it. Simon Crystal Tavern (1) by simon crocker, on Flickr Crystal Tavern (2) by simon crocker, on Flickr Crystal Tavern (6) by simon crocker, on Flickr

    Cheers! Articulation isn't too bad, although the shoulders constrain the lateral movement of the arms.

    MOC Crystal Mine windmill

    Thanks soccerkid, really appreciate it. Brickmaster: hah! I might think of renaming the 'Crystal Mine lab' under construction. Thanks so much Archfan, Brickjagger, and Cap'n.
  20. Hullo This is the second building for my Crystal Mine village, a little windmill. I've kept the same building style from the cottage I last built, but thought I'd mix up the colours a bit. Maybe a red roof for the next one?

    [MOC] Aliens APC

    I agree, I would love to see this in real bricks. So well executed.
  22. That's great! The greebles on the side of the tank are superb.
  23. Hi I have designed a couple of medieval-style cottages, but I think this is my favourite scale. It's similar to the little buildings in the Ninjago Temple of Airjitzu, and the Medieval Market Village, which i think works really well. I am planning a medieval mountain village, inspired from the clean lines of Howls Moving Castle and the cartoonish architecture and machinery of Final Fantasy/Zelda RPGs. I'm most proud of the windows, which I think really characterise that robust, animated style. Anyway, I'm hoping to construct a few more buildings in this style, and place them in a mountain top village. Although this plan is still pretty fluid at this stage. I've also experimented with a topo map for a background, from somewhere in regional Victoria...

    [MOC] Crystal Mine Cottage

    Cheers Cap'n, Greeble, and Master! As for the miner and their family, I'm considering whether the village should be inhabited exclusively by cats....I'll give that one some further thought.
