    The Tribute to The Razor Crest - Released!

    Excellent very helpful to see - going to need to clear some space for this once its done.

    The Tribute to The Razor Crest - Released!

    Sorry did the same but slower...losing the two carbonite bricks could knock of about $40 but its still going to be around $830/850 plus P&P.. Using Lego B&P for some of the high volume pieces may prove cheaper than BL (its always worth checking but I find it amazing sometimes how cheaper Lego B&P can be) and you only get the one P&P cost but I think at best it might reduce you by a $100 or so (I did the same in £ in the UK). I could only afford it as I had about 3000 pieces in my stash and my lego RZ that I was prepared to throw into the build.

    The Tribute to The Razor Crest - Released!

    Excellent...glancing through the instructions there does seem to be the odd moment I can foresee of getting frustrated but good to know its worth it. Thanks

    The Tribute to The Razor Crest - Released!

    Awesome - looking great. Any tips or lessons learned to share Naixin? I'm waiting for the Lego B&P order to come over to the UK then I am 100% complete on the parts gathering (had about 3000 in, BL'd 1500 and then 500 from B&P) so about 6 weeks away given current delivery timescales.

    The gathering of parts has began....as soon as the kids are back into school I shall start working through my spares stash in the loft and see what I have already and the fun can commence....

    Awesome - this is going to be my first build of 2021....
  8. I think there is a tipping point where its moves from mod'ing the set over to in effect using it as a base as a MOC - I think when you move into the latter territory then the limitations of the official set will come to the fore - I made the decision I'd leave the RZ core structure alone and change around it - once like you I wanted to do more then I looked for a RZ MOC which best fit my budget / parts. Ideally when I have the budget I'll probably look at the amazing Jerac MOC - but at 5k pieces that's going to add up once you add in BL / BnPs P&P for all the orders etc - so that's probably a long term project for second half of this year at the earliest (i'll probably part ouf the modded lego RZ into that build). Don't get frustrated - I keep a gallery of changes people make to sets I have or will get and then over time I look to apply changes where I can - LDD can be useful to help work out the parts you need (or studio IO but I've not tried that myself). I create BL wanted lists by ship and then when I decide to place an order I'll use the WL to see if the shop has any other parts I need - might make getting the parts for any one ship longer but it works out more cost effective than doing lots of orders and being stung for a load of P&P costs. And I am rubbish at coming up with my own stuff, but I still enjoy tinkering and following as best I can some of the brilliant people's creations and lots of people on the forum are always happy to help - I got a lot of help on the two MOCs I have on EB (1 in SW and one in Sci-Fi)..
  9. He has extended the nose a lot as he has moved one of the engine covers 87926 into the canopy and you can see two lots of slopes on the top sides, the engines have had a lot of work on the fronts and rears and are wider and there are a lot of changes along the top and sides. Your either going to have to study the video a lot to work out some of the main changes and then go from there in trying to replicate (I assume from a quick scan of the video makers sire they never offer instructions) which is hard when you can't always see any of the changes being built up. I'd check the main structure is unchanged and then start working my way through in sections - focus on the nose and then work backworks say - but its always a pain to try to replicate someones build from such a limited source. For such a lot of changes from the standard set you may want to start looking at MOCs - I have modded by 75292 but also bought and build a MOC to get a version which looks more accurate but is over 2k parts and hence twice as many as the retail set.

    [MOC] The Razor Crest by Edge of Bricks

    Finished the build, very happy with the result - some quick pics (sorry can't get any decent light on the table so tried using a sheet to help). A couple of fiddly bits but nothing serious so kudos for a lovely build and excellent set of instructions to Michal and his Edge of Bricks MOCs - awesome job! @Kozikyo86 I've made a couple of very minor cosmetic amends to the build and I can now have my series 2 Mando living in this one with all his beskar kit whilst series 1 Mando, Kuiil, Blurg etc can stay in my modded Lego RZ.
  11. This is the rejigged base - I moved the 1x1 with clips around so I could put t in the 2x 1x2 brick with axle holes (I removed the outer one for the pic. One brick worked ok but two keeps the plates above them which form the floor of the RZ more stable. The side without the carbonite is easier as its larger plates, the carbonite side has small plates so I re-built it upside down for ease else some of the piece's will float without hull base plate being attached. You could change how the carbonite section works but I waned to leave that bit alone. Moving the 1x1 with clips means you have to re-arrange the hinge plates on the side panels - easy enough and they remain stable opening/closing. Cheers
  12. Should be straight forward, I'm in the UK and from memory there was nothing expensive or hard to find (other than some sellers being impacted by lockdown etc). I've not been able to breakout the changes to the ship itself this evening - I'll try to do that for you tomorrow.
  13. @DonFulcrum no worries.. From the pics I already had and doing a quick BL check I think the gear parts are; Main gear legs - each leg; 1 x Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Angled 32013 1x Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Angled #4 135deg 32192 1 x Pneumatic Hose Connector with Axle Connector 99021 1 x Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Perpendicular Split 92907 1 x Technical Axle 4 1 x Technical Axle 3 1 x Technic, Axle 2 Notched 32062 1 x Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with 2 Open O Clips - horizontal 60470b 2 x Slope, Curved 2 x 2 15068 (or you could swap one for a 2 x 2 tile and flatten out the gear cover, or another 1 x 2 tile take your fancy) 1 x Plate, Round 2 x 2 with Rounded Bottom (Boat Stud) 2654 2 x Technic, Axle 2 Notched 32062 (or use one and put a tile or grill on the ski) 1 x Technic, Pin with Friction Ridges Lengthwise, Staggered, with or without Center Slots 2780 In the hull you need 2 x Technic, Brick 1 x 2 with Axle Hole 32064 - I can't remember if they where in the original set or not. Front gear (using the two black connections in the kit); 1 x Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Perpendicular Split 92907 1 x Technic, Axle and Pin Connector Perpendicular 3L with Center Pin Hole 32184 1 x Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with Bar Handle on 48336 1 x Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with 2 Open O Clips - horizontal 60470b 2 x Slope, Curved 2 x 2 15068 2 x 1x2 plates 3023 1 x 2x2 Tile, Modified 2 x 2 inverted 11203 (or use another boat stud) 2 x Technic, Axle 2 Notched 32062 2 x Technic, Axle Pin with Friction Ridges 43093
  14. @DonFulcrum sure thing will do. I've got some pics to hand of the landing gear itself - and later tonight Ill see if I can build up the parts list and take some pics of the changed internals of the bottom of the ship (I tiled it over so it will take some time to take apart). From memory I rejigged the internals so I could slot in the gear for when I wanted to show it down hence moved the door supports around to enable me to free up access to a couple of bricks with axle hole (32064)s.

    [MOC] 501st Legion BTL-B Y-Wing Starfighter

    Sweet - works well in the blue and white colour scheme - we can't have too many Y-wings!. Excellent shaping on the body and I especially like the rear engine nacelle detailing - great job. Might make me want to do some more plates in place of studs on my red one. Now we just need a yellow one for the set.
