    Hope the inventory and manual will be available soon. Should have more than 3K parts in my stash.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer

    Look at the hull plates for example - they are double layer with plates. Maybe you didn´t build the 10030. For me thats a great update other than the 2stud wide plates on the backside. Also the bridge - im not talking about the greebling but the building style. This is way better than the 10030 in terms of gaps and shape. As for Inflation i already calculated it for you.You made your calculations without here: "10030 - 2002 Release, 3096 pieces, $298 retail. 9.6 cents pp 13.75pp" 75252 - 2019 Release, 4784, $699 retail. 14.6 cents pp. " I partly agree with you. If you compare prices of products or services which cannot be outsourced in "cheaper countries" as education, healthcare or building costs you will find much higher inflation numbers.

    You forgot the inflation! Based on this inflation calculation the same parts (3096) would cost 13,75 cents pp furthermore 75252 has more than 50% more parts. Price is fair, you´re welcome.

    Looks good - price seems fair - plenty of larger plates. What i don´t like is that rainbow color inner structure.

    Sorry @rockpig no idea. Scheyjosh hope this helps: the lbg technic plate should connect with the slopes, you have to move the hinges.

    [MOC-LDD-WIP] Imperial Tank

    Hello, i´m not sure if i this project will be finished soon or built with real bricks. I started with the container - because of the very limited orange part range! The final model should be somewhere around scale 1:15 (60Studs long, 27Studs wide, 15Studs high) with Interior and RC and 2 L-Motor for the tracks and 1M-Motor for the cannon. One container consists of 385Parts which makes 1155parts alone for 3 containers but one goal is to achieve a high detail level and sturdy connections.

    Identify the "rarest" parts first! Look for them first, see which common parts you can get in those shops as well. Use the [Apply Order] function in your Wanted List.

    Great Model!! I used your link to Bricklink, and did an "Easybuy". Unfortunately it shows one more time how corrupted the "Easybuy" function in Bricklink is.

    Building Mortesv's Nebulon-B Thread

    Hi, the build starts with the engine section - just replace the lowest (thin) vertical liftarms of the engine section with the biggest stand. For the Front section i just used a few liftarms to get that thing "in level" as early as possible to build the midsection on both stands which is easier for the lazy ones. The page to finally integrate the Stand is 528 the DBG Liftarm, but nothing wrong if you do it at around page 800. regards MC BTW: i need a bigger buerau

    Aggressor or Monarch?

    Probably i'm biased, i built the Agressor. Both have a great design. When looking over the part lists of both, the Agressor parts are not that rare and should be easier to achieve all over the world, while the Monarch´s partlist shows more rare pieces and some very expensive ones. Both will cost about the same for "late builders" but with the Aggressor you have a 15K pile of parts instead of 11K. Viewed from this point more value for the money. Edit: my 6 year old daughter defeated Vader with her rey minifig a few times, Aggressor is sturdy enough for Play sessions!
