  1. 75204 Sandspeeder REVIEW

    Thank you so much! I was about to ask :) . The helmets are gorgeous. And the rest of the pilot minifigs - well, could be a nice material for, say, a Gray Squadron of X-wings in some huge Yavin IV project :) .
  2. [MOC] Project: Endor

    Thank you. It took only 13 years :) . Unfortunately no, there are - and never will be - no plans for the platform. It's just too huge.
  3. [MOC] The X-Wing Strikes Back

    Now this borders a personal insult (just kidding ;) ) so let me explain: X-wing gun recipe by Maciej Szymański, on Flickr Note: Technic 8 tooth gears are available in two versions - some with stubby teeth and some with slender teeth. Only the first ones fit into the wheel rims; slender teeth are too big! Also, in case anyone is wondering how the guns are connected with wings, please, notice the square holes in the rims - short pieces of flex tube (hose rigid) fit there nicely or must be slightly squashed (if you happen to have thinner flex tubes). That's all, I guess. Good luck perfecting your model!
  4. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Spot on, mate! And same situation here, in Poland: you have to spend your average MONTHLY salary to get this UCS Falcon. By the way, it is some 100 pounds more expensive in Poland than in the UK. I, for one, can't afford this beautiful set.
  5. [MOC] BTL-A4 Y-Wing

    Well, if you say so then ok, I believe you.
  6. [MOC] BTL-A4 Y-Wing

    A business venture, huh? If so, then I regret helping you out with this build.
  7. [MOC] Snowspeeder

    All the trans parts you used to build the cockpit - brilliant. I'm afraid I'll be exploring this solution even further if you don't mind :) . Great little model overall; the only thing I'm not sure about are all these wedge plates in the front - kind of chaotic to my taste. But the cockpit rules. Congrats!
  8. [MOC] Project: Endor

    Haha, thanks, man :) . It wasn't that bad in our bedroom but the thing was set up on the floor for quite a while and we had to be veeery careful getting up and zig-zaging towards the door. On the other hand, I must admit it was quite a pleasure to open my eyes in the morning and see those meter-tall trees right in front of me :) .
  9. Mission accomplished, then :) . I knew you could do this. Good luck with the rest of your X-wing!
  10. Having finished a 200 kg model recently, I know exactly what you mean when talking about strain in the structure ;) . OK, I did my duty and i'm not going to nag you anymore. Good luck with your project - you're gonna need it, as Han said ;) .
  11. The key word here being "simple" :) . Come on, you are building a very impressive, beautiful, huge scale model here! No place for compromises! Don't go the "simple" way; make your model so that no-one (a grumbling old fart like me, for instance :) ) can say "nice build but could have been better"! Please, don't read all these exclamation marks as scolding - I'm just trying to cheer you, to make you try even harder, because I believe you can :) .
  12. I hope it's not too late to ask this question but... Do you trust your blueprints 100%? The rear landing gear you built according to your blueprints does not look exactly like the real thing. The struts are paralel in your version, while in the film it's clear that only the rear strut is vertical, while the front one is somewhat slanted towards the rear one. Please, take a look at the picture below.
  13. Only very obscure and non-canon characters begin with X, according to the Star Wars Encyclopedia. I guess I'd go with X-wing pilot. Easily recognizable. About N - it's either Nien Numb or Nikto (both are available as LEGO minifigs).
  14. Ring-Worlds - An ongoing project

    Neat idea. And such elegant circles. It looks like a very, very, very long term project, considering the number of Star Wars locations ;) . My favorite is Galen/Krennic scene. The planet was wonderfully austere with a sudden patch of green and you conveyed it perfectly. (Even though I'm not a fan of spilled round plates ;) .) Great job!
  15. [MOC] Project: Endor

    Thanks, guys. Yeah, I couldn't resist. There are seven light points in the personnel bay of my AT-AT and they are all good ol' 9V LEGO light bricks with blinking function, depending on the direction of current. Disco connection was too obvious to be ignored ;) . AT-AT (WIP) Lights in the night by Maciej Szymański, on Flickr
