    The Tribute to The Razor Crest - Released!

    Sweet fix Fuppylodders - I fettled around with mine to get it about right so long as I don't touch it - so next time it gets a dusting I'll give this change a whirl! (two weeks ago I finally decided to go back on some recent engine changes to a part old/part new setup and having to then re-fix the front angles left me not wanting to so much as breathe on it for a while).

    Curses never used stud.io only LDD and badly at that....the new engine front nozzles are better than the original - does changing those need the Stud.io expertise can I ask please? (I can live with the sides for the medium term).

    Nope I also had the same problems but suggest to "fettle" it at the end once its all done - then its about just getting it as best you can - there will be little gaps if you look at my and other pics - but with trial and error you can get it about right.

    [MOC] The Razor Crest by Edge of Bricks

    Thanks. The cost ended up about £170 as I swapped out some parts post build. The build was a mix of Flat Silver, Metalic Silver, PLG and sprayed lego parts - as you are aware there are only limited parts in silver available - the effect mimics the drum lacquered approach Lego uses to make its own metallic gold and silver parts and is not destructive/permanent. I'm not a Ghost fan to be honest so I can only say the RZ is a great build, looks great and my lad loves playing with it.

    Sweet - this is a lovely looking ship.

    Yes will do - away at the moment but I'll do that when I get back. Can't recall the specifics - check page 6 of the thread (instructions 1492 > 1494) - mine sound similar to Naixin so I played around as others have done with the bracket and removed the hinge. Ill check and confirm once back home.

    Display on the stand - but I've had it break on me when the cabinet its displayed on was knocked, the wobble caused the stand to go at the front - luckily I caused the bump so was able to catch the ship before it hit the floor with some minor separation. I made some minor changes to the stand but it still seems to be under a lot of stress from the weight.

    Ta - some more pics in the https://bricksafe.com/pages/hold0511/lego/razor-crest-moc-by-jerac folder. Ignore the engine two - I'm still playing around with either going down the Lfm55 or trying to make the slopes fit better - no time at the moment. Now that's a clever idea - I stuck with either LBG or DBG as I knew what the effect of the paint would have.- but I bet you saved a lot of time and money once you had worked out the parts you had to get right v's any cheap and available.

    I built the model over two weeks on and off, having sorted the parts into the tubs I use to group them. So I did about 2 / 3 spray "batches " a day over that period, based on how many parts fitted into the large lego box I used as my spray booth and a rough look ahead over any specific parts being used in the next 100 steps or so. Each spray pass is only a couple of minutes - its the sorting/drying which takes the time together with the smaller number of parts which needed a second coat (covering more than one side say). Had I decided to do all the spraying in one go - its probably only an hour or so to do - assuming you have the space to lay out all the parts at once for spraying/drying which I don't (two kids and dog would not be able to resist with the "touchy touchy"). You could do in sub assemblies with some planning, but you lose some of the patina and also it will then "glue" parts together and you risk the paint pooling - doing them individually means they are still "normal" bricks.

    You know that has never actually occurred to me to do....hmm....but now you have said it.....masking the two front bars would be the hardest part with the curves - the rest of the lines are stright.

    Sliding in somewhat - I sprayed mine with Plastikote - doing each brick individually with varying coats/layers/directions etc gives you the variations in tone/shade which then enables you to get a more natural effect/ In effect its a similar approach to Lego drum lacquering their pieces. Mix in the standard Lego Met Silver, Flat Silver, PDG, PLG etc and it works well. Appreciate its not for all but worth it with this ship. I can pm you if you want any more details so as not to disrupt the thread.

    Mandalorian ship box?

    Yup resolved. There was a period where the usual scalpers where trying to sell the post resolution UK box with "RZ and not the Mando transport" boxes to the unsuspecting.

    Mandalorian ship box?

    It was to do with trademarks - https://brickset.com/article/53520/75292-razor-crest-renamed-following-trademark-issue All sorted now and hence why its back to being the RZ in UK, Germany etc
