    [MOC] 007's Aston Martin DB5 in minifig scale

    I love the play features you got into the tiny vehicle.

    [MOC] The X-Wing Strikes Back

    If I can get the x-wing done to my liking I think I'll tackle my falcon idea merging Marshal Banana design with new ucs cockpit. I saw a new picture surface that he already began doing this. I decided to hold off modding my ucs falcon when I saw this photo. I love how all the unique designs and alterations on the forum. I wish the ucs falcon redesigned the ship from the base structure instead of relying on the original idea. For now I'm working on small models and eventually want to do my firehouse now that I have all the pieces. My biggest issue I find is LEGO keeps coming up with awesome part designs that actually make my models better. I will be posting new vehicles in other sections soon.

    [MOC] The X-Wing Strikes Back

    Jerec posted on the forums here and acknowledged he drew inspirations from a bunch of us. I bought his instructions to figure out what he did differently. Since my gear structure requires a bit of modding and my personal one actually cut a lego piece I think I may try to modify my structure to house a stronger gear system. As for the rest of the ship, I think I may take his side panel idea and try to figure out a way to incorporate his smooth panels into my design. I also love his landing gear solution as well. In general I think the following can merge with my idea to make it more accurate: 1. Merge the side panels together 2. Modify my gear box 3. Incorporate the landing gear idea

    Thanks for this video link. That sure is a nice model.

    I have to admit this one makes mine look a bit dated. I see a lot of great solutions and I think I may fuse the two designs together for my next ship. Great job. I may need to build tour ship just to figure out how you solved that fuselage. The next thing I love is your solution to the bottom. I love the fact that you don't have to add or subtract parts to make the landing gear work. I simply gave up on my design.

    Go through the whole thing. I offered a link as an update and plenty of instructions on mods done for this x-wing version through the 6 pages. Thanks. For those who may not understand it, are you able to take off the side panel and show them your inside view of it? I Did this for those confused by the instructions.
  8. How stable is it? Is the bottom now a solid piece instead of those frame pieces lowering down to make the center seem taller? Looking at what Marshall did, the bottom appears solid. Looks like you are making it quite strong as well.

    Would you please share your modifications to your side panels? I think I know what you did, but if you could do an exposed photo or a photo showing the parts from the inside or back of the side panel. Looks great. I didn't even think of those cannon ideas you did. Please feel free to do a tutorial for people in this thread. I went with a custom design with lots of custom parts, but I think this option will work best for purists. That is a great looking X-wing. I am excited for the new 2018 X-wing LEGO is doing. I cannot wait to use the stickers and parts on my version. I plan on doing a series of x-wings (rogue 1-5).

    I pushed down the 2x2 gray plate away from front nose since it holds up, it gives it a bit of a gap, but the top aligns with the side better. The landing gear on the front just attaches to the white bottom plate. The back landing gear fits inside the engines. I would take the 1x1 gray cheese wedge out. You can make a 1x4 red tile fit there and it sorta keeps the sides on. Bottom Gear: Take off the half cylinder and attach the gear as follows. Should work just fine. Front landing gear is attached only using the hinges and white plate. I didn't put a lot of effort into placing the landing gear inside since it was for display only. The side 1x6 tiles are attached with a round hinge top. The side 1x4 tiles. I chose to change them in order to make it Red 5 style. I took the 1x6 red tile out and made it 2 1x4 tiles. What I may do about that gap on the nose you asked about, I may use the new 2x2 lego part 33909 plate 2x2 with reduced knobs, then use a cut down hinge to fill the gap.

    Hope this helps... The nose, in question. I cut down a hinge to make the space filled. Same technique as what I did in the wings. Gears: I forgot to mention since my last update I did the following mod to the gears to make it work better: the 2 stud axle concept works if you take out the longer axle from image 2 and replace it with a shorter one. You need to use a shorter axle so the one on the right doesn't stick out so far. This will allow you to keep the original black 2 stud axle without cutting it. Th This is a cut down axle, you do not need to do this in my design. I did it as a placeholder for me when I decide to build a stand.

    The gears offer 2 ways to make the thing work. I designed it to be one or the other. 1 way is to have the gear go to the back of the x wing and use the 2x2 round plate to open the wings. I also made the gear have the ability to switch to a vertical option where you can make it work with a stand or have the gear go to the top and turn from there. The gear box and s foils have to be put together at the same time. I used my lap to hold the wings together while placing the gears in correctly so that the lego parts line up correctly so the wings open properly. This too a few times to get right because the wings require both the top and bottom gear to line up perfectly. I am not sure what parts you need to glue. I can take a few photos of the middle to help you out.

    Interesting take on the main hex shape.
  14. LEGO stores (USA) have a double points program going on until Sunday. I just purchased my Millennium falcon and got 1600 points. This will not include any new LEGO purchase such as the new Y-Wing. But, considering they had 16 UCS Falcons in stock for the event, I could not pass this opportunity up. They also gave me a free Darth Vader mini bag kit. Now I need to think about how I want to spend that $80 in points next time.

    21314 - LEGO® TRON: Legacy

    Doesn't the LEGO team work with the original designers to develops the final project? Based on the video review it sure sounded like they went back and forth quite a bit in order to nail the design.
