    [MOC] The X-Wing Strikes Back

    I learned a hard lesson using that stand. My x-wing fell forward and crashed onto the floor. I didn't account for all the weight in the front of the ship. Either I need to use axles through the entire stand running into the ship or thicken the stand and add technic bricks with reinforced lift arms. I am redesigning the peg and stick portion of the stand to account for this mishap. The good news I found out how durable the vehicle is falling from a 4ft drop. The ion cannons flew off, 2 jet engines fell off and all 4 thrusters, the side panels broke where they connect to plates and the nose came off. The frame and side panels from the torpedo holes to the rear of the ship stayed together. The ship can be held in front of the windscreen. I have done thin plenty of times while building the model. I grabbed it from this area when doing the photography and repositioning it on its thrusters. The ship can be swooshed just fine. I tested it this. If you do recreate a turbulence effect then expect the ion cannons to fall off of my design in the photos. The old boxy ion cannons seen in my Studio file are solid and do not fall off as much.

    Tim Burton's 1989 Batmobile

    Thanks. I modeled my car off the Sideshow Hot Toys car proportions. The real car fins only add 11.5 inches to the body above the rear tail light. When you lay the car over the lego model it actually doesn't go back as far as you may think. I understand what you are saying. I think the fact I am using a cheese slope for my third fin makes it stick out too far and the fins look shorter. The blueprints online are not accurate. They were heavily modified during production and The Hot Toys car is The only accurate model since they took the specs off the production car. If you had another solution to the fin I would gladly swap it out. Ideally I need a curved slope that is 1x6. Another solution I wish I could figure out is the rear wheel placement. In order to fit it inside those slopes I needed to keep it half a stud forward. If LEGO had those 1x3 curved slopes with a stair step stud I could move the wheel. The wedge plates work okay flipped the other way as well, but it was flipped because I wanted that circular design on top. If they had all the wedge plates as tiles I wouldn't even consider this idea. The smooth tile effect could work if people used modified tiles or flip the side wall to fit a 1x4 tile, but then you lose the inner angle. If you had another solution I would be glad to try it. If we also had more slope options I would try those. Lucas used curved slopes to solve this issue and I would have tried a similar solution had these parts been available in tiles or regular slopes. I chose the top view to help determine my shape and parts. That wedge plate fits perfectly on the side panel and connects to the right angle I needed. Other people have spent a lot of time doing this car. Lucas created the best 21 stud long model. He makes all his cars equal 1 stud to a foot. I like his collection a lot. He crams a bunch of stuff into those models. I just like my larger scale a bit since I worked on my Delorean. That model made me decide the larger scale since I couldn't figure out how to get the car smaller than 15.5 studs long. Once I figured out it was about 1:35 to 1:40 scale I decided to model every vehicle to that proportion.

    [MOC] 1966 Batmobile

    Beautiful design. I am glad you decided to scale it larger than other models in your fleet. The slight size increase makes this set work well. You fit a ton of stuff inside the cockpit and add this to my collection.
  4. Tim Burton created one of the most beautiful set and vehicle designs on screen in this film. The challenge for me is coming up with a version much smaller than my first version. The idea was to have a more slender profile, while maintaining the shape in LEGO parts. My older design on rebrickable is based on a 12 wide design, and a second model based on a 10 wide design. So many people have approached this car and I didn't want to make it look any of their designs. Lucas makes some of best vehicles in his Batman collection and each one is scaled at 1:43 perfectly matching 1 stud to every foot. I am always amazed how he does this with each vehicle. I work in a bit larger scale, 1:35-1:40 range. This gives me more flexibility and still feels in scale to other models out there. Like most my other vehicles this car features an internal structure. This time, I have tried to recreate the turbine engine as well as the front cylinder engine. This car does fit 1 minifig and has plenty of places to add on other features such as a grappling hook, turntable, gun turrets, and the side wings. With this said, I present to you my newest version of the 1989 car.

    Tim Burton's 1989 Batwing

    Batwing 1989 by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr Batwing 1989 by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr Batwing 1989 by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr Batwing 1989 by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr Batwing 1989 by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr Batwing 1989 by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr Batwing 1989 by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr Batwing 1989 by Chris Ehnot, on Flickr If you want to see a few more photos, check out my flickr page. The cockpit fits 1 Batman minifig. I also built a simple turbine engine inside the main structure. The design is slightly larger than the bat mobile by 3 studs because I chose to make the ship as close to the movie as possible, focusing on the bat symbol. The vehicle should actually be 3 feet shorter than the batmobile. If you want to build this vehicle, feel free to see my Studio page Tim Burton's 1989 Batwing Studio Page

Tron Legacy Display Base and Light Cycles Each light cycle uses 74 parts to form the sleek design. The models feature the double circular engine, a quick release for the minifies and Tron sticks, and a smaller design contouring the body. The display bade features a modular structure easy to swap out other elements or add your own. The basic structure gives you a base for the light cycles, the ability to convert it into a bus stop seen in the Tron Legacy video game, a removable "Tron" logo shaped loosely based on Clu's aircraft carrier seen at the end of the film, and a wall with he number "2" on it. There are a few studs on top to place Quorra. The Billboard display is designed to disconnect from the main frame and act as a bus terminal covering. Customizable parts, easy to expand this whole structure into a battle scene or Grid games.

    [MOC] The X-Wing Strikes Back

    DOWNLOAD VERSION 3 FILE HERE I successfully rebuilt the x-wing. I plan on taking some photos soon. The Version 3 file has been updated. What does the new version fix? Stronger side panels Fixed connections I forgot to include to side panels (several ares did not connect to the ship at all) Reinforced cockpit Redesigned R2 Compartment area to connect the side panels tot he main structure. New reinforced nose connection Stronger frame and internal structure Finalized cutaway x-wing parts I admit, the area where the life support is probably one of my better solutions. By flipping the 1 stud hinge upside down and sticking a cut hose inside 2 reversed round plates with holes you get a strong hold, but also used 2 modified plates with clips on both sides. One set flipped upside down with the hinge plate. They are connected to two other clips via 1 stud long 3mm cut hoses. This whole new Cockpit and Astromech area keeps the high at the right height to connect to the side panels without forcing them downward like my last version. Right behind the seat you can see some clips (2 on each side). Add a 1 stud long 3mm hose to secure connection. Behind the seat you will find 4 1x1 round plates with holes flipped on top of each other. Add a 1 stud long 3mm hose inside them to keep them together. The photo below shows 4 red hoses to mark where you need to place the cut hose to secure the sections mentioned above.

    The Journey back to Echo Base

    I did extensive research on this in my hanger bay topic. The hanger is 3 bays long and the set was too. Falcon sits in front of one. best scene to see the bat is when chewy is on top of the falcon and Han yells at him while fixing stuff. They built everything and there are references from official schematics showing the bay is 3 short bays that are long, and 2 tall ceiling bays where they held the speeders. I Will admit the games over the years changed it a lot. I did a whole topic for people on Eurobricks about the hanger bay proportions and what George Lucas actually intended it to be for the film. Hope this helps you.
  13. Boy does that move quickly. Before you fill the area in i suggest taking a bunch of photos and list out the parts for people.

    [MOC] The X-Wing Strikes Back

    I finished the wings and engines. Worked on the gearbox and rear body. The side panels need reworked. I realize now I need to fix things. At some point I deleted critical parts to attach the plates that fit in the panels. These plates had 2 connection points before I built an internal frame and I must have hid them to work on other areas. The frame inside the front side panels may need to go away in order to properly connect them. My file has been updated, but I am not going to release it until I am quite happy with the updates. The new wing structure works better than my original. I modified the gearbox to use a thicker gear because of loose parts shifting inside I only had to raise it 1 brick to get a fatter gear to fit. This did not affect the size or shape. I had plenty of space to make adjustments. I will share photos of the WIP later this week if I solve the side panels. still waiting for parts to complete the side panels. Made 9 different orders and missing 4. Fortunately I ordered things based on sections so I could build each area and modify it as I need. The file does contain new changes and solutions such as a more detailed internal engine area below and behind the r2 unit seen in the cutaway drawings.
