    Cavegod UCS AT-AT Instructions

    The modified legs do not have an instruction manual yet at the time of this writing but they will be released within the next few months when I renovate the AT-AT manual.

    75217 Conveyex Mod - full length train

    Great mod to this set/model! Definitely perks up interest in this set now, especially since it is currently on Sale (At least in the U.S. it is)

    (MOC) - Cavegod's UCS Sandcrawler

    Absolutely that would be fantastic.

    (MOC) - Cavegod's UCS Sandcrawler

    Can't believe I've missed so much of this thread, love all of the recommendations and heard all of your concerns with the manual. I was planning on doing a renovation of old manuals, which the sandcrawler would be included (Hint Hint at new AT-AT legs soon), but unfortunately the laptop I used to make the manual crashed and the files for the Sandcrawler were largely lost (I was able to save about 3,500 pieces worth of the file but that's merely a quarter of the manual). I would strongly agree with Cavegod and substitute parts where you can such as panels and slope colors, etc. Remember, this is the Sandcrawler we're talking about, a bit of random colors and mixed browns and faded parts make it all that much better! It also helps on a scale of 12,000+ pieces to cut down a few hundred dollars simply with some part substitutions...
  5. Amazing! I've been waiting to get a look at this model since you first posted progress photos. Any idea on dimensions?

    [MOC] Imperial DS-1 Orbital Battle Station

    This is unbelievable! I mean a 40 inch diameter?! I wish there were a part count estimate for this build but judging by the cost it has to be at least 100,000 pieces. How did you build the inner support structure? It has to be able to hold quite a bit of weight, especially the bottom few layers.

    [MOC] Hoth Echo Base

    Incredible! I love the details done for the cave entrance. Makes me wish the top of the base had the same detailing or something like flowing snow banks rather than the flat stud look.

    [MOC] [LDD] UCS INCOM T-70 X-Wing Fighter

    Sorry to hear that. No rush working on the LDDs or the model, I'm sure a Hard Drive disaster creates many more problems than just LDD files disappearing! Super excited to see how version 2.0 comes out! -Christian

    Escape II - Star Wars animation

    If I could offer one piece of advice if you go through with cutting down on the frame rate, it is to drop nowhere below 16fps. 16fps is where photographers first realized that photos can become stitched together as video, and is generally considered the lowest frame rate where filmmakers can get away with shooting. I know it adds to the total frames, but the difference will be significant. -Christian
  10. At last your Midi-Scale Venator is available! Definitely putting this MOC on the list for future builds! -Christian
  11. The technic beams that make up the inner skeleton can be changed I believe. Panels are placed all over so you should have no issue by switching those colors. -Christian
  12. Just a heads up that this MOC, along with Cavegod's AT-AT and mortesv's Nebulon-B have been listed by a user that goes by the name Ledako Design and has been selling manuals on German amazon and ebay. Please report the listings as it is stealing intellectual property of everyone involved with making these designs and manuals. https://www.amazon.de/Markenlos-CUSTOM-Bauanleitung-UCS-Nebulon/dp/B06Y1W6THT https://www.amazon.de/s/ref=bl_dp_s_web_0?ie=UTF8&field-keywords=Ledkao&index=toys-de&search-type=ss

    UCS Desert Skiff

    Love this MOC. Definitely a huge step up from anything Lego has done (I think that goes for granted with your MOCs nowadays). Great detail as always and I think you can add me to the list of people who would love to see an instruction manual one day.
  14. My apologies for the delay, ran into a few speed bumps with the parts list. It is now live on rebrickable here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/forces-tie-fighter/#infoMOC-17181/cjd_223/first-order-special-

    Trench Run MOC to Display Minifig Scale Ships

    Looks incredible so far. I agree with this though, definitely make sure to "hide" the grid structure when adding the details, yes despite the fact that the actual studio model was built using a grid system
