  1. Fair enough, I think one aspect that would help would be adding the lighter design part on the wings, but it wasn't something I could easily do with bricks so I omitted it. The photo that I mentioned that showed them looking very grey was this one. But I also did a quick colour swap to sand blue. I admit, it does bring a little more life to the bomber.
  2. Thanks! You can find more pics/info on my Y-Wing an Delta-7B on this forum, see here and here.
  3. Hey everyone, hope everyone has been doing well. I've been busy working away at expanding my minifig scale MOC collection (Still only digitally atm). And thought I'd bring you something that I haven't really seen around anywhere. A minifig scale Hyena-class Bomber. This one was pretty tricky, but I think it came together rather well in the end. The official LEGO Hyena bomber was alright, but left a lot to be desired. The overall shaping of the ship was kind of off and the walking mode looked nothing like the source material. My goal was to get mine as close as I could and keep it in line with my other minifig scale builds. This was a little harder than I had anticipated, and I had to make one sacrifice right off the bat. There was no way that I could get the legs to physically retract the way they do on the actual ship, even more so at this scale. So unfortunately there is a small bit of "parts-forming" required between modes, but I made it as little as possible. I was able to get the wing mounts to extend out of the main body to allow upper leg movement though. The other thing that always made the model look wrong was using the head build method established by LEGO. While the stickers used to make up the "face" look nice, the overall head shape is left extremely flat. It took a week or so of playing with parts, but I was finally able to come up with a brick-built head design I was happy with. While it may not be perfect, for the most part has the general shaping of the actual Hyena bomber. I then utilized variations of the technique to build the other head-like shapes on the ship, including the targeting head below. I've also included a couple photos with some of my other MOCs for size comparison. Prior to working on the Hyena bomber, I had built a minifig scale Vulture droid, but was unhappy with the stock LEGO style head. However after figuring out the head for the Hyena bomber it wasn't too hard to down-scale to get a suitable head for it too. So since they are fairly similar I'm including the pictures of it here as well. Both ships were designed to use The Clone Wars colour schemes, although it could be debated that they Hyena should be sand blue rather than DBG, but given that practically none of the pieces come in that colour, there wasn't much choice. There are scenes from the show where it does look more grey that blue anyways. As always, hope you enjoy! I'll be back soon with my minifig scale ATT and DDT.
  4. Hey everyone, finally got instructions up over at Rebrickable. Big thanks to @supertruper1988 for making the instructions. https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-13841/IcarusBuilds/ib00001-anakins-delta-7bb-minifig-scale/ I will hopefully be adding the instructions for the ring soon too.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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

    [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

    [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.

    [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.
  13. 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
  14. @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
  15. 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.
