    75105 Interior to OT Interior

    I've done this kind of modding, and the result was fine to me :) It probably required less than 40-50 pieces, and the rebuilding process was pretty easy (even being quite extensive). No external modifications needed. I've modded both the anterior and posterior chambers in order to make them look like those of the original trilogy MF. As regards other moddings, I would recommend you to mod the exterior "cake slices" in order to fill the gaps between them. There's a topic in this forum that deals with these problems, here's the link: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=117518 hope it helps :)

    [WIP] T-65 X-Wing

    So far, so good! Very nice angles and, as I said at the last update, very "rebel-esque" model! I'm waiting for more updates, keep up the good work!

    LDD TIE Fighter Project

    I'm very curious about the result! In fact, some time ago I was about to design a TIE fighter moc myself, and your model is very close to the "target" i had in mind

    LDD TIE Fighter Project

    Great result! Looks very good and accurate :) Have you considered to substitute the "facet bricks" (87620) with the so called "macaroni bricks"? I think they would look very well and give the cockpit a more spherical outline. In fact giving the cockpit a "spherical" shape was the main issue for me in designing my own TIE advanced. I ended up making it "taller" than that of TLG's 75150, to enhance a little the contrast with the lateral pylons. I think that this would work well also for a TIE fighter like yours. Anyway If you're interested I can send you the link to the thread about my MOC, it's a bit difficult to describe it in words :)

    [MOC] Darth Vader's TIE Advanced in minifig scale

    Very nice, I especially like how the wings were made. The rear deck also looks well built. Proportions seem fine, even if I made some different choices in my own TIE advanced, with more emphasis on the cockpit (http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=136598) Anyway, in summary, very good work! I think I will borrow some of your ideas for the greebling!

    [MOC] The Ultimate AT-AT Walker

    That's fantastic! That's right the kind of project I like, blending an extraordinary accuracy with many play features. Aside from the great exterior, I especially love the interior, the work you did there is awesome!

    [MOC] Boga – Obi Wan's Varactyl

    Very beautiful and lively! I can almost hear Boga's cry

    [MOC][WIP][LDD] Minifig Scale Rebels Ghost Build

    Fantastic interior, very good work! The cockpit especially impressed me, instantly recognizable! This really deserves to be built in real life

    [MOD] Building a better Droideka

    It's strange that TLG did not release any new big droideka in such a long time, I think it would make a very appealing set! 8002 was my christmas present in 2000, I remember its towering appearance on the shelf, making my friends envious I was though really disappointed by the rolling mechanism working not very well... [edit: I forgot to mention that I like the improvement you did, it makes the mini-droideka somewhat more muscular and aggressive! Certainly better than TLG's version]

    [MOC][WIP][LDD] Minifig Scale Rebels Ghost Build

    In fact, the photo of your model from above looks pretty accurate when compared to this picture. Now that i think about it, It's probably a matter of perspective (i got that impression from the last image of your model)

    [MOC][WIP][LDD] Minifig Scale Rebels Ghost Build

    I was waiting for that, a mining scale Ghost! Your project has my enthusiastic endorsement It seems you've done a really great work so far, can't wait to see it finished and built with real bricks. I think that the shape of the Ghost allows to build a very detailed interior, but I am aware that it would require a lot of time to design and build it in depth, not to mention the sky-high brick count the project would probably reach... Anyway, again, astounding work! Proportions look very accurate, maybe except for the rear part with the engines, which looks a little too long to me, but it seems that it can be modified/shortened easily... what do you think about it?

    [MOD] 75102 X-wing S-foil, rubber band, and landing gear fix

    Impressive, your clever rubber-band mechanism deserves really to be taken into account for future MOCs! It transforms a drag into an aesthetic feature! Also, very good work with the shaping of the wing and engines, and that landing gear is very nice and well integrated. By the way, have you considered to design a classic X-wing MOC yourself? I'm sure you would obtain great results

    [MOC] Sebulba's podracer (Microfighter)

    Wonderful! I've always loved Sebulba's podracer, and I think you've captured its shape very well, even in such a small scale! In fact, your micro cockpit looks better than that of the 2011 minifig-scale set I think that Sebulba looking unconfortable is not an issue, on the contrary, that's in the very spirit of microfighters And indeed, I think you could even shorten the anterior part of the cockpit by 1 stud, to make it a little more proportionate towards the engines (but i'm not sure, I would need to try and see the result). Anyway, again, fantastic work!

    [MOC] [LDD] T-70 X-Wing W/LXF.

    Good work, by the way! Slim and aggressive, much like the real one seen in TFA

    [MOC] [LDD] Naboo N-1 Starfighter

    Very nice, looks better than TLG's version. I'm waiting to see it built with real bricks! As regards the nose, I prefer the original version. As a possible improvement, I'll only work a little on the back, especially by finding a smoother alternative to those 4 x 2 yellow angled plates on the sides (or by covering them with some sleek pieces).
