  1. I don't know about the ring, since I haven't physically built one, but the fighter itself is very swooshable. No loose parts to speak of. As far as instructions go, there is a pretty good probability of that.
  2. The scale I use for all of my "minifig scale" MOCs is 1m = 3 studs, which I believe is 1:41.67. The Delta-7B is 8m long, which would be 24 studs, mine are technically 1 stud to long at 25, that's due to the 1x4 plate that sticks out of the front, I just like how it looks that way. It's easy enough to swap out to make 24 though.
  3. Thought I might as well post the rest of the Delta-7B's that appear in Clone Wars since I have them. None of these are built in real bricks yet. First, Adi Gallia's Delta-7B. I couldn't figure out a way to do the pattern in bricks, so I left it solid and would add stickers or something if build. Next, Barriss Offee. Hers isn't seen for very long, but is a palette swap of Obi-wan's Delta-7B. Keelyvine Reus's Delta-7B. Only seen in the webcomic, hyperdrive ring is a palette swap of Mace Windu's. Kit Fisto's Delta-7B. Luminara Unduli's Delta-7B. Only appeared in the table top game, there are very few pictures of it and all are fairly low res. This is what I came up with, hyperdrive ring is a palette swap of Anakin's. Mace Windu's Delta-7B. Obi-wan Kenobi's Delta-7B. Plo Koon's Delta-7B. Same deal as with Adi Gallia's, left solid. Saesee Tiin's Delta-7B. Is a palette swap of Ahsoka's, as such so is the hyperdrive ring. Enjoy. IcarusBuilds
  4. Sure thing. Delta-7B (3) Anakin's Delta-7B (2) Ahsoka's Delta-7B (2) I would like to build the rings at some point, but not sure when. I'm trying to save up to build some other MOCs, so the rings are lower on the list.
  5. So a few years back I set out to make my first Star Wars MOC (as an adult that is). I was really into The Clone Wars and decided to start with something small. I finally decided on the Delta-7B, as it was featured heavily in the series. And I had a bigger goal that I was aiming for, that it would be a part of. This was my first minifig scaled MOC, long before my Ghost, Phantom, etc. Though I've had these sitting on my desk for years, it wasn't until recently that a few new pieces came out that finally added the finishing touches to them. So I've finally decided to show them off, in lieu of the bigger thing I'll be showing in the "hopefully" near future. So lets just jump into it. Anakin and Ahsoka's Delta-7Bs. Delta-7B (1) Delta-7B (2) Closer look at Anakin's. Anakin's Delta-7B (1) Anakin's Delta-7B (4) Closer look at Ahsoka's. Ahsoka's Delta-7B (1) Ahsoka's Delta-7B (4) I also designed Hyperdrive Ring's for them. But haven't built either yet. Anakin's Hyperdrive Ring (1) Ahsoka Hyperdrive Ring (1) And just for a size comparison, with my Phantom. Delta-7B (4) by IcarusBuilds, on Flickr Hope you enjoy. IcarusBuilds
  6. [MOC][WIP][LDD] Minifig Scale Rebels Ghost Build

    Hello everyone. Back at the beginning of December I had mentioned re-uploading the files for my Ghost and Phantom. I have been super busy with life stuff and haven't had the time to do so, and I thank you for your patience. However during this time some users have felt it necessary to bombard me with messages asking me to re-upload the files faster. After explaining that I simply haven't had the time, it stopped. But has now started back up under different usernames. Due to this harassment, I have made the decision to not re-upload the files. I apologize to anyone who was really looking forward to building my model. I look forward to showing off more MOCs in the future. Thank you for your understanding. IcarusBuilds
  7. [MOC][WIP][LDD] Minifig Scale Rebels Ghost Build

    @BrickVault Hey thanks for posting! It's great to hear from another Ghost designer. First things first, I'd like to apologize, in no way was I trying to imply that your Ghost copied mine in any way. I was simply trying to differentiate us as being different people. As far as any similarities go, there are only so many brick combinations available when building the same thing at the same scale, similarities are going to happen. I personally find it exciting that more minifig scale Ghosts are being made, for a while I was the only one that I could find, which was partly what spurred my desire to make one in the first place. It's pretty neat to hear that you had the same driving force behind yours. I hope to see more of your creations in the future.
  8. [MOC][WIP][LDD] Minifig Scale Rebels Ghost Build

    Well that is not me, so not the same designer. There do seem to be a some similarities, but overall they seem to have tackled many aspects differently, so good on them. It's always interesting to see others take on the ship. I was notified of a builder who took on the challenge of building my version though, which is quite the task. Link to his build progress here: https://dmarkng.wixsite.com/dmarkng/single-post/2017/07/26/Rebels-Ghost---A-16k-Brick-Project On another note, to the many asking for a copy of the LDD files, I have been considering making them available again. At this point, I really don't know if I will ever have the time or money to build this behemoth myself, as much as I would like too. So by sharing the files and having more people build it, then maybe one day I will be able to see it built in person. I will try to re-upload the files soon. And if you take on the challenge, please let me know. Thanks.
  9. Made some minor modifications to the nose section to flare it out near the back, not super noticeable unless you are looking from the top. But I think it is a bit closer shape wise looking back at it. BTL-B Y-Wing Starfighter - Reshape by IcarusBuilds, on Flickr
  10. @Ellisss_2 While I have heard of POV-Ray I am unfamiliar with how it works, and I'm not sure I've heard of Stud.io. Regardless, I did a quick render the features the display stand I built for it. The model with landing gear is a total of 1840pcs. BTL-B Y-Wing Starfighter - TEST2.lxf by IcarusBuilds, on Flickr
  11. Hey everyone, So I recently started re-watching Clone Wars since I finally got it on BluRay, and thought I'd take a stab at some of the ships since Clone Wars was the first series I started making MOCs for. (One day I may show my earlier stuff once I update it all.) I had forgotten how neat the Republic Y-Wing was, and thought I'd tackle that. I had planned to show this off as real bricks but it's going to cost a bit more than I had originally anticipated, so here is the LDD version for now. Anakin's BTL-B Y-Wing Starfighter (1) by IcarusBuilds, on Flickr Version with landing gear, there is unfortunately no room to fold it in, so it has to be removed and bricks placed over the holes. Anakin's BTL-B Y-Wing Starfighter (2) by IcarusBuilds, on Flickr They had the design drawings available on the Star Wars website, so I used those to get my design as close as I could scale wise. Anakin's BTL-B Y-Wing Starfighter - Full (1) by IcarusBuilds, on Flickr And then a collection of the different colours seen in the show. BTL-B Y-Wing Starfighter - All Colours (1) by IcarusBuilds, on Flickr BTL-B Y-Wing Starfighter - All Colours (2) by IcarusBuilds, on Flickr BTL-B Y-Wing Starfighter - All Colours (3) by IcarusBuilds, on Flickr As a side note, there is enough room to fit Anakin and Ahsoka in the cockpit, I tried to fit a clone, but the helmet is just way to big to fit under the canopy. Also I am aware that these do contain some pieces that do not currently come in the shown colours. Anyways, let me know what you think, and enjoy.
  12. [MOC][WIP][LDD] Minifig Scale Rebels Tie Fighters

    @Inthert I think your tie was one of the ones I borrowed ideas from. And since you mentioned the Mining Guild and Sabine's Tie, I took a little time and moc'd some up. Mining Guild Tie: The altered wings took some playing around with, but I was able to make them work. Though I'm not sure of there strength if made in real bricks. Star Wars REBELS - Minifig Scale Mining Guild Tie Fighter by IcarusBuilds, on Flickr Mining Guild Tie Scale Project-TEST by IcarusBuilds, on Flickr Sabine's Custom Tie: Getting the colours to look good on this is pretty challenging without the use of stickers, and unfortunately with the wings, the colour comes through on both sides, not sure how to remedy that.

  13. Hey everyone, Was just browsing the board and noticed @Forresto asking about Rebels style Tie Fighters, so I pulled up the ones I designed a little while back that I hadn't posted yet. I haven't had time to build them in real bricks yet, but once I get some free time I'll probably give it a go. First up in the Standard Rebels Tie Fighter; I combined multiple techniques from different builders from here and on Flickr to get the ball as round as possible, I can't remember who right now, but if I remember I will try to add names. Changing the wing size from the standard was a bit of a pain but this seams to hold together. Next is my version of the Inquisitor's Tie Advanced Prototype; The wings were also a pain to build on this one, I tried to keep them as thin as possible, which unfortunately means they aren't the strongest design, but they will work for now. Hope you all enjoy, I realise tie fighters are a dime a dozen, but I tried to go in a different direction with my design to better fit the Rebels aesthetic.
  14. [MOC][WIP][LDD] Minifig Scale Rebels Ghost Build

    Hey Jamie, thanks for the comparison pic. I did a lot of researching while building the Ghost and based on everything I found, my Ghost should be the same scale as the UCS Falcon, just goes to show how big it really is.
  15. [MOC][WIP][LDD] Minifig Scale Rebels Ghost Build

    Interesting changes, though unfortunately the cockpit design wouldn't work for a real brick build, due to some of those pieces not existing in trans-black. I'm currently not uploading the interior, I'm holding on to that for now, also with the stability issues of the Ghost model trying to add in the interior immediately crashes LDD. As far as the landing gear, I went for accuracy over practicality, a brick built model would need additional support for sure. I would like to make some more things from Rebels, currently I have an Inquisitor's Tie Fighter that's scaled to my Ghost that I've been working on.
