    [MOC] [INSTRUCTIONS] UCS Tantive IV - CR-90 Corvette

    Hi Everyone, My model has been standing for a year on the top of the wardrobe, but it was time to store it somewhere else. It was very difficult to remove the dust from it, I could't reach some areas from below and was afraid of to brake the engines easily (despite of some strenghtening). After moving to my new appartment, the stabilizing of the engines will be on my list. It will last for a few months, because I'm quite busy now. You can see here, how the middle engines are tilted upwards due their on weight after one year. I'd like to fix this issue somehow. 5A54F0BC-2B55-4EAE-8E52-762E56257F8E by Gyula Herr, on Flickr

    Awesome, how far you guys went with the interior design! They add so much extra features to the Falcon. How do these MODs influence the stability of the ship?

    Hi, I think you've done the best solution to reproduce the Marshal Banana's version and be more accurate to the reference pictures! Great job! I like it a lot!

    Yes, it is yours! Great design, thanks for sharing!

    This a a funny scene, because they've used only a backround, instead of a real Falcon model. It's a well detailed artwork, it's hard to notice that i'ts only a poster. About the design: it's not my idea, I've just copied it, but unfortunately I can't name the creator...

    I've posted my Falcon for inspiration. I don't think that this old docking ring design fits less to the 2nd edition of the MF. It looks very similar to your last reference picture. I can't see any curved lines inside the ring, so I find the 3L bar more accurate in that location. You're right, that it's hard to find a good reference, I've just looked the Bandai model, it's very detailed. 50654039716_2a219614fb_o másolat by Gyula Herr, on Flickr I've used this guide to build the rings. You can see here, how the tiles are attached. As I've mentioned before, it is quite fragile, but this way you can face the tiles to center a little. 45962749322_0fb4deaf83_o by Gyula Herr, on Flickr I'm following how your new design progressing. I can say in the name of many members, that we welcome any better solutions, especially in terms of sturdyness! I think you are on a good way! Keep going!

    Kit's version is microfig scale. Interior was build only for play features, but it's not in the right scale.

    Hi, Here's my docking ring. It's not my own idea, there were some post about the structure at the beginning of this thread. I'm very satisfied with it. There is little tension at the main connection and it's quite fragile, but it does its job. I've made it about a year ago, and since then there was no problem with it, even in this tilted position.

    This is a perfect addition to the new Black Seas Barracuda ship! I will definitely build it someday!

    75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017 MOD/MOC

    It's a great MOD, which looks much better than one of the factory model. For some critics: there is too much gap between the outer side of the ring and the panels and I'm missing the red and brown colours from it, but I don't have any suggestion, how to solve them. Anyway, nice job! 337577_big másolat by Gyula Herr, on Flickr 401406_big másolat by Gyula Herr, on Flickr

    Looks great! Looking forward to see how it looks like on the Falcon!
  13. Hi Everyone, I haven't seen any posts about displaying minifigures in picture frames recently, so I thought I share with you my version. I made these 5 display frames for my Lord of the Rings/Hobbit minifigure collection. It doesn't contain all the minifigs from the themes, I deninitely wanted to create a nice display instead. The 5 frames are: Elves, Orcs (including 1 goblin soldier), Wizards (=Istari, incl. 2 blue wizards from other themes), Dwarfs (+Bilbo) and the fellowship of the ring (incl. Gandalf the White, King Theoden, Elrond and Gollum). I can place some bigger minifigs (for ex. Goblin King) on the top of the frames. I've used IKEA Ribba frames (23x23 cm). I've edited special backrounds for the individual displays. The minifigs are standing on 2x4 bricks, which are glued to the background. These bricks allowed me to apply stickers to sign the minifigs and to add extra parts (for ex. the arkenstone for Thorin). Unfortunatey, I couldn't use the glass of the original frame, because there wasn't enough space due to the equipments of the minifigs. Thus, I can't prevent them from dust... Creation process: As you can see, the bricks aren't glued on the photo, they are connected directly to the board. The final result: Thanks for stopped by!

    Modding the Barracuda thread

    Just a quick update on my POBB set. Old meets new: D06B5D73-B25A-44E4-A3AB-F08EE4E4DEE0 by Gyula Herr, on Flickr Raft Raiders joined to the crew. The white sail is made of paper and it has the same custom logo as the big torn sail. I've expanded the water section, so it has now three different layers (DBG->LGG->tan) and some foamy effect too. FF084166-FD81-4336-958E-81042A66A6CC by Gyula Herr, on Flickr There is a little bending on the edges due to the repetitive plate connections, but I'm OK with it.

    Looks great! I like how you've created a 3D effect with the transparent "cheese" slopes. However, I can't see clearly, how the parts are connected... Could you show us more photos, please?

    I've just finished the torn sails on my Barracuda Bay set. I've made 3 of them. They are based on @Alazon's vector files with some minor changes. Their upper line is not completely straight, they have just a slight curve on top, like the official sails have. I've applied the biggest one onto the tallest mast with a custom crossbones logo. The sails are printed on 140 g photopaper. I've edited a dirty canvas-like background instead of white to make it more worn-looked. It was a nightmare to cut them out with scissors, but I'm satisfied with the fnal result.

    Hi, Thank you for mentioning my MODs. Have a lot fun modifying your Falcon and don't hesitate to post the end result!

    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    I think basically it's not so different from the IDEAS model... There's a reef with shore, plants and shipwreck... but is more colourful and has much less room. I like to fade its colours later.

    Sorry about that. It's not part of the set. As mentioned above, it's from the 8th Series of the Collectible Minifigures. I'm collecting pirate captains recently, and I store them at the Bay...

    Hi, you can check the pearl dark gray colour on the official set (75244). In my opinion, it looks darker than the normal DBG and I feel it too shiny for this model.

    I think it would work only from a definite perspective...

    Hi Everyone, Let me share with you my pirate vitrine! I can display the Pirates of Barracuda Bay set only this way at home: 2F0823A1-6D04-491A-BCC1-E39D2B44DEA2 by Gyula Herr, on Flickr I had to rotate the island, thus there was no place for the original azure blue plates. Therefore I've built the surrounding water with transparent blue tiles, like others did before (I always wanted to try this technic). There are three layers, so it's quite sturdy. The second layer consists only of tan and LBG plates. Other mods, specifications (mostly because of lacking space): - front mast is removed - main mast is 4 plate shorter - no flags on the top of the masts - one palm tree is removed on the right - no rock on the front-right side - custom background based on the box art - custom sails based on @Alazon's vectorized Silent Mary sails. I used my modified skull-crossbones logo for the big one - maybe it's a bit to emphatic... These are only prototypes made of paper, I'm still working on them. Thanks for stopped by.
