    [MOC] MINIs from Resistance NEW RED ACE

    Cheers. Ah one of the red quadrants (left wing is on the wrong way around). Well spotted! The flat edge should be at the front but i have both on the same way. With the minifigs I have been experimenting with clear stickers as I could not find adequate torsos for the Green and Blue Ace pilots but I like to use official parts where possible. I have only watched the First Series and you are right Clone Wars and Rebels are far superior but my little boy enjoys Resistance.

    [MOC] MINIs from Resistance NEW RED ACE

    Hi all I hope everyone had a good Christmas and Happy New Year. I finally managed to finish this little model of Red Ace from Resistance after I went back to work - I have my pieces delivered to work to stop my little monster getting his mitts on them! :-) This is a simple little model built around a couple of 3L technic lift arms. Nothing complicated in this build. The hardest part was the accompanying minifig. I have painted the helmet slightly but apart from that all official parts but if anyone who has more knowledge of minifigs can think of better prieces to use please feel free to let me know. Cheers Jon

    Thanks again. It just so happens that Red Ace is the first of the remaining aces to be built so watch this space.........

    [MOC] MINI Razor Crest (The Mandalorian)

    Wow. Many thanks. Go right ahead and post the file. It is the sort of thing I would have done myself before my son took away most of my free time.

    Hi again everyone As promised here is the Fireball! I really like how this model turned out. Its also very nice to have a bit of colour in the collection and not just grey for starships. Speaking of colour the choice of yellow/orange and green was down to availablitiy of all the parts needed in that colour. I think the green is too bright but not all the required pieces were available in sand green for example. It is not that complicated of a build. For the most part it is built with bricks with studs on the side. The nose/cockpit section is attached using a 1x1 brick with studs on 4 sides and a technic brick with a hole. The wings I decided to keep simple after experimenting with multiple hinges to get the shape of the gull wings (down then up). In the end i added some cheese slopes to give the illusion of the down bit. The front is built using a headlight brick (which the plate with handles is attached to upside down) and a brick with studs on 4 sides. There are a couple of bars through the middle as well. As i said I really like how this looks and the dimensions (from source material) are pretty much spot on. Anyway, let me know what you think. Merry Christmas! Jon PS. Now to the Aces..........

    Thanks again. Yeah, I am fond of Han's Speeder as well but from memory it didn't get much love at the time. Whether that be because of the movie it came from or the fact that the finished model does not really look like LEGO.......not everyone likes studless!

    Thanks. As I said The Fireball is on the way. As for the rest of the Aces it is certainly a possibility but I will need to work out how to do the minifigs......
  9. Why have I started blushing? These are all excellent little builds. I especailly like the U-Wing with the moveable wings and the shape of the B-Wing cockpit. I never really got around to building any of these Rebel starfighters as they were all built as Polybags/Planets Sets and I always saw my models as filling in the gaps in the collection. I am running out of things to build though...................my turn to be inspired! Great work!

    [MOC] MINIs from Resistance NEW RED ACE

    Hello again everyone After the success of the Razor Crest I am back now to the animated series, at least for now. This week I present the Black Ace Tie Interceptor form the Aces Squadron in Star Wars Resistance flown by Griff Halloran an ex Imperial fighter pilot. This is supposed to be a modified Tie Interceptor but the reality is apart from the cockpit it looks nothing like it! The long thin nose makes it incredibly difficult to build in this scale and keep it looking relatively accurate and in proportion. I think I have done ok with the source material but I am not completely satisfied with it although i am not sure how else to build it! The front section and wings were the issue and I have managed to use clip and handle plates to hold it all together. I am happy with the cockpit and rear section. Anyway enough waffle, let me know what you think. Jon PS. time now to finish off the Fireball...........

    Thanks again. I must admit I can’t take all the credit for the displays. The LEGO planets sets were a favourite of mine after all!

    Hello everyone, as promised here are some pictures of the build in various stages of completion and taken apart. This should allow anyone who so wishes to build this little model. If anyone requires any further help with the build just reply below. Happy building.

    Thanks for the interest and nice comments but as I have previously said I will not be preparing instructions as I do not have the time with work and family commitments. i have also been ill the last week so not got around to taking and posting the exploded pictures yet. It is not that complicated a build so those pictures should give you what you need as and when I get round to them.
