    [MOC] 1400mm X-wing

    Random progress. Dash rough sketch V0 Dash V1 Dash V1 Radar / weapon system screens are 3 tiles deep so I can place graphics in the mid depth Random New wing version to be tested. System seems more stable than earlier mostly Technic solution. Rough seat sketching! :D This will be interesting to solve!
  2. New photo of this old model. And a very small "making of" about soft light setup and 3d rendered background. Final image Screenshot of 3dstudio: original camera file is placed on plane among 3d mountains and scenery Another final image Cheap setup for soft light using curtains and daylight

    New version for front 1/3 of the upper side of the hull. This technique allows for later changes / updates for the "paint job" / squadron markings. This solution will be easy to texture.

    [MOC] The Return of The X-Wing

    Very good work and proportional accuracy! Amazing detail considering the scale. Loving the underside of the wing near engines. That "engine reveal" detail is very hard to do without causing the wings to sag.

    Yep, I tried the cone earlier and found it hard. This thread has few photos of it a few pages earlier. A-Wing: Yes! Go for it! Drop me a message if you start build thread I would like to follow it. Also I would like to also build an A-Wing. Now that I have some experience on larger Technic models I have analysed the A-Wing to be the perfect challenge. It has very good cockpit detail to fusealage size ratio! Also it has very "solid mass" so you won't be battling the gravity in the build. The challenge will only be the curved surfaces!

    Okay I will try to increase speed! :D Just finished first version of triangular surface beneath the cockpit window. Will do for now and if it sticks out later then it's time for iterations. I think next up is a better version of the canopy. I think I'll leave the front cone last it will be hard! Very small tutorial of the triangular surfaces.

    Experienced moc designers here for hire?

    Hahaa! You hit the nail! Every new part released creates millions of new possibilites on how to improve an already designed areas of ongoing models :D If you are making a long term project one good idea might be not to look at new part releases! :)

    Some progress on rear wall greebling. This was nice to build with trial an error. Minifigure hands and rigid hose seem quite useful combination :)

    [MOC] 1400mm X-wing

    Haha thanks! I think this shows more of my hobby time usage than anything :D I think my progress could have been packed into 6 months if I worked on this model every day. In reality I think I have worked on this maybe once every 2 weeks. I have prioritized my work career and there the progress has been amazing! I still think I will be able to finish this X-Wing in my lifetime :)

    [MOC] 1400mm X-wing

    Hey thanks! Nice looking storage with clear drawers. I'd like to build / get led panel lights behind drawers to light up the part collection. Also center island desk: yes! My primary wish currently. I think I'll design and build one with wheels so it could also be moved against a wall. I'll post more renderings when I have first design options ready!

    [MOC] 1400mm X-wing

    I have now modeled the new building room as an empty space from the drawings. Next I'll start designing building desk and drawers for parts. I should be moving in after 9 months :) If you have any good ideas or proved storage systems please let me know! View towards balcony. Right side wall consists of sliding doors, they have 900mm storage depth inside. View towards apartment.

    [MOC] 1400mm X-wing

    Hey do you have already something to show? Update: New Lego room for late autumn 2021! The house is being built right now. It's time to start designing storage system, building desk and lighting! Room dimensions are roughly 3300mm x 2700mm. Glass starts from floor and extends to ceiling! Also here is the state of the X-wing and my part collection:
