    Thank you Sir. Feel free to share some footage here Thank you very much! Particulary with UCS models of this size it is a nice addition ( and quite a challenge to go for the interior, as well as how to include it suitable - even if ideas have been there since the start of this built...). Kind regards Kommander

    UCS Mon Calamari Star Cruiser "CONFIDENCE" (MOC)

    Hello folks, Rogue One, a absolute stunning movie (in my opinion), gave us this great designed, whale-shaped Flagship. It is like a combination between classic McQuarrie concepts as well as modern military submarines. The instructions are now avaiable at Brickvault: https://www.brickvault.toys/products/mc-75-star-cruiser-confidence About this MOC: Dimensions - 89 cm x 20 cm x 46 cm The model contains 5728 pieces 700-pages Instructions The ship features a compact, but playable interior including maintenance hangar, command areas and detachable quarters A Nanoscale Tantive IV can also be fitted right into the hangar bay in front of the ship LEGO UCS MC75 Star Cruiser CONFIDENCE by Kommandant Keller, auf Flickr UCS MC75 Star Cruiser CONFIDENCE by Kommandant Keller, auf Flickr Shame on me I didn´t post an update earlier but some other priorities kept occupied me the last months on further progress. Not to mentioned I took quite long to finish the model digitally. I went through different versions, each iteration with better techniques and quite better shaping... it was always some kind of finding the right balance considering techniques and esthetics. Like for the digital model and instructions: The rear-shape changed another time because the used building methods just were to challenging for implementation. But irl quite easy to archive. LEGO UCS MC75 Star Cruiser CONFIDENCE by Kommandant Keller, auf Flickr In Lego-Universe it always felt like something is missing for the Rebel Alliance Fleets out there. Dozen of ISD, various shapes, types and sizes – but less big Rebel ships. I am very proud of the outcome, especially since there are not many UCS-like Mon Calamari ships out there. And let´s be honest - the color scheme was the most fun part of designing. Doing some happy little drops here, markings there. The ship differs to the well-known PROFUNDITY Star Cruiser but I couldn´t resist to paint it acccording to my wishes and put a name on it. CONFIDENCE!

    The Tribute to The Razor Crest - Released!

    Hey Jerac The video you posted was shocking! I was really impressed about the MOCs sturdyness – despite the fact it looks quite fragile. Great job, especially with the interior you decided to include. You managed to catch the spirit of the ship. This shape is on the edge. Greetings, Kommander

    Hello @Krisproductions, yeah the scale is just right fitting between UCS and Playable Set! Perfect for the shelf - except its height :D @Lego Spotlight, last week I tackled the front hangar bay as well adding some more details at the rear. Unfortuneatly it´s sleekness has been reduced a bit - but for a nice trade :) I can´t promise...but I want to complete it this summer. Next update will be soon. So keep patience! Kind regards, Kommander

    Thank you both for the kind words! @Frizzlefry25 I appreciate your interest, but you better look out for @Raskolnikov "Home One" first. Expecting this MOC being way more forward into publishing compared to mine As well, thank you for the response! Yes, unfortuneatly my whole collection/storage is in another town - I can only visit occasionally. Whenever I spend some buildingtime it is quite short... But I am confident next month (during vacation) I can make more big steps forward. Greetings, Komander

    UCS Mon Calamari Star Cruiser "CONFIDENCE" (MOC)

    Hello! It is still a long way for me to finish the ship due to lack of time but here are some new pictures of the ship. I placed more details on nose and armorbelt. Also, tried to coloring the surface properly - it was a lot of fun! :) In comparison to the ships overall studless shape the nose fit in quite nicely as well. And the bottomside fin with the commandbridge has been improved with some very smooth shaping. Slowly things coming together.

    UCS Mon Calamari Star Cruiser "CONFIDENCE" (MOC)

    Hey, sorry for the long time with no update. This time I tackled the interior for the first time. In a nutshell enough space is rare in this ships size. The komplex shape and the nessesary sub structure are restricting space to work with. Fortuneatly the ships supporting structure in the middle is quite small. With nothing to carry except the armorbelt. So I decided to go for this area with one scene on each side. In order to make the space less confined it is possible to extend one side of the ship. This side is the command area, featuring a movable chair and a nice view on Scarif with a window on the floor. The other side represent a maintenance pit. The upper level on each side will be fitted with consoles as well. Which are concerning me, since I cannot place Minifigures with the belt on top.

    Thank you Jerac, definitetly reconsider the details I built back with the first version and also a coloration near the original. There are many kosmetic things on my list. For example the ship needs way more pods at the surface. And some areas - especially the belt-hatches (or ribs?!) - I do not see any options to include highlights without stickers. Also by removing the front stand there should be more focus on the ventral fin as well as the hangar with a Tantive IV. Kind regards Kommander

    Thank you very much folks! Thank you. I will try my best to bring the design closer to that organic look with every single update. You are also right on the cloth... Those fit quite well with the ship´s shape. I wanted to give it a try and who knows, maybe some areas will benefit from this type of coloring. Thanks - It was a pain to aglin all those joints and hinges in the front Here is the update from last weekend. All necessary parts have been built and finally, the ship coming together. Only a small area at the bottom of the second belt is still missing. Again, I adjusted the inner frame which now can hold the ship on those smaller stands. For the lower fin I tried some techniques and find the following the most suitable for the details I want to add but the command bridge needs some fixing with this bulkiness. Now that the ship is robust enough to hold on its own and the proportions are matching, I can continue with details. From now on the focus will be on enhancing the overall look.

    UCS Mon Calamari Star Cruiser "CONFIDENCE" (MOC)

    Hello, Last couple of days I was pretty busy working on my ship, also in order to provide you with a new update. Depending on building progress I plan to share more pictures this week. Once again the first steps on this update were much more time consuming as expected. I would have started some new areas of the ship but expanding the front was sooo difficult… At least I approached a quick build of the “command-fin”. Just a bit too large isn´t it?! UCS MC75 017 by Kommander, auf Flickr Let´s take a look on this update: With the previous front being a relic for a smaller scale now has been completely redesigned. Some might say with the third attempt it would be easier with each step forward but it was still very challenging. The problems have been the same. UCS MC75 028 by Kommander, auf Flickr UCS MC75 027 by Kommander, auf Flickr The front runs together under a complex shape. With again much try n error and the usage of some unusual bricks I archived a nice result. Key was to align the bricks just in the right position. With little help of ball-joints it wasn´t that hard to accomplish… but finding the right bricks and position! Long slopes have disappeared and so are the unnecessary edges. Which make a quite unique look but aren´t useful in this state of my MOC anymore. Unfortunately due to the gap-filling wedges a few studes have been added. No big deal since its Lego but maybe need to reconsider this. The smaller slopes stayed with a design being similar to the rear. Overall the shape under the armor belt now looks more like it is made out of one piece. The gaps at the nose aren´t the best solution and I will definitely change them later. But for now I am ok with those. Also underneath the hangar comes with a significant increase at the first sign. Let's see how I can take advantage of this now. UCS MC75 026 by Kommander, auf Flickr Last but not least the rear underside has also got a little improvement – it is almost finished at this point. I couldn´t resist to add a few splashes of color.

    Fraud MOC sellers.

    Well, interesting. Thank you for sharing this fraud. Definitely gonna investigate in this one.
  13. First thought: Acurate overall shape so far. Great size. Really looks promising on the first leak and worth to call itself a UCS Set. This set definatly gonna find a nice place in my collection. I am hyped as well. And ready for some more footage.

    Hello! Unftuneatly only a small update on this topic. I revisited the inner structure including the attachment of the armorbelt. Out of that I created some more space for an interior. But most of the time I tried to find some better methods to form the shape. Especially with the rear I entered a quite nice-looking form closer to the original thanks to the use of some technic panels. It is now a bit wider and has been extended. This will be the new limit of the ship´s size. Smaller variants of the tail I experiment with (including the last posted pictures) were not satisfying enough in terms of turning bricks into an smooth organic look. Due to the new rear, the armorbelt will be enlarged as well in the next update but because of the new inside not that challenging any more. by Kommander, auf Flickr by Kommander, auf Flickr by Kommander, auf Flickr Greetings Kommander

    You did a great job with the egg-shaped dome. I wonder how it looks inside. Can the feets hold the construction on their own? Cause it is difficult to see the bottom. Anyways stunning MOC! Greetings Keller
