  1. @obijon Thanks you! No I don’t think I’ll bother with lights, I’d like to get a kit for my Tron set first as that seems the perfect candidate for glowing, I might do more if that turns out well and not too expensive. And thanks for the Kubrikkian speeder suggestion, I’ll admit I rushed it when I got frustrated so I’ll try to get the proportions better, Christ Deck’s does look good! @Mandalorianknight Thanks to you too and I’m glad you like the obscure stuff, there’s more of that to come before I tackle my big nemesis... the Tantive
  2. The Mos Eisley Cantina set is awesome, but too big, so I put together a micro scale version. The buildings connect together to make it one A5 sized display, or can be detached and opened out like the real thing! I hope to get all the parts together by Christmas, in the mean tim here are some Studio renders.
  3. Absolutely awesome, and it looks so good parked next to Han’s stolen speeder! I’m not a big fan of totally smooth builds but your use of bars, studs and modified plates for texture is really pleasing to look at. It’s very good, you’ve done a great job.
  4. @MAG85 I haven’t been able to test it for real yet but I think the panels will open to about 80 degrees (where 90 is straight out to the sides), but the ship will need to be held for this. I did try connecting some runners to technic plates which pushed against the sides of bricks, similar to my mod, and the one runner held quite a few books before it broke off so I’m fairly confident it will work, but I guess I’ll have to wait until someone tries it for real to know for sure :) @macaron35 thanks very much! I’m good at talking about interior mods and bad at following through, I’ll do my best to actually try this one... at some point haha
  5. I’ve been working on my own improvements, I haven’t built them for real yet (my kids are getting me the set for Christmas!) and haven’t tackled the interior but the exterior is all done. In summary, the nose area is all new, so are the engine intakes, the engine exhaust is a bit longer and shapelier, I’ve swapped some dark grey for light, moved the guns up by one stud, filled lots of gaps and tinkered with the landing gear so it folds away. I’ve avoided messing with the structure so the modifications should be very easy to do. I’ve also put together some instructions, broken down into chunks for each modified area. Hope they’re of use to someone :) https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-55814/ron_mcphatty/razor-crest-set-75292-mod
  6. It’s been much slower progress over the last two months, I’ve done some mod instructions as well as two more micro builds, the Otana and the Ebon Hawk! I’ve just realised that I never took photos of the Otana, oops, I’ll update these when I can. As always, the instructions are all here. The Otana is from the absolute classic X-Wing Alliance, if you’ve been enjoying Squadrons and have never discovered Alliance then it’s absolutely worth picking up this gem on Steam! The Ebon Hawk is Darth Revan’s gunship from the Knights of the Old Republic games. I think it might be the ‘oldest’ character ship in the entire Star Wars canon, predating everything by thousands of years. And lastly for a bit of fun, something I did in the run up to Star Wars Squadrons releasing and a render of eeeverything!

    Galaxy's Edge: Millennium Falcon Smuggler's Run

    Absolutely stunning, the building and rock slopes are excellent and even with just a few figures in there you’ve brought the scene to life brilliantly! It’s the perfect way to display the Falcon, great job :)

    75218 X-wing MOD

    Great mods, your X-Wing’s looking excellent! The engines look much improved and the curved nose is great, I’m gonna have to see how that looks on mine :)
  9. Good ideas and great mods so far, the dark grey stripe in the middle of the nose is a good place to start for everyone I think and the rest of your suggestions are good! There’s plenty of space for some surface detail on those big triangular wedge plates at the back, I think I’ll be nodding them too. Haven’t tried it yet but the engine gaps look like they could be closed up by alternating 1 and 2 stud wide curved slopes.
  10. I felt unsure of doing constant posts over the summer but since I've just reached a personal milestone and finished my micro Ghost I thought I'd do a catch up post. Since Home One I've added micro versions of the Darth Vader's Castle, Droid Escape and Assault on Hoth sets to my little collection. After them came a few of the unique ships from Galaxy's Edge (Resistance I-TS, TIE Echelon, Utilipede Transport, First Order Fleet Transport, Resistance X-Wing and A-Wings), a TIE Reaper and TIE Striker from Rogue One, unique and recoloured ships from Star Wars Rebels (Blade Wing, Ryder's U-Wing, Hera's X-Wing, Miners Guild TIE Fighter, TIE Defender, Mandalorian Fang Fighter and an R-22 Spearhead) and finally the Ghost and Phantom. I've updated the first post in this thread with links, photos and renders (where I haven't built the ships yet), plus some updated photos, but here are a few extra rebders and pictures of my latest. Instructions for all of them are on Rebrickable... https://rebrickable.com/users/ron_mcphatty/mocs/ I've got a list of ships to add to the pile like the Rogue Shadow, Ebon Hawk, Mantis and Otana, but if you've got any suggestions or ideas for improving wha I've already done then I'm all ears. I hope you like these little ships though, they've been a lot of fun to put together :)

    [MOC] #66 Star Wars 501st Legion Attack Dropship

    That video was extremely impressive, stop motion using renders is so effective at showing the ship off, the sound added a lot and the little story was very funny! The instructions were great too, very nice job. It would be good to have access to them in PDF form too, If you’re not already familiar with Rebrickable.com then have a look and definitely join the community there. The ship looks great too, very faithful to the source, great job :)

    1:125 scale lego falcon

    This is excellent! I love that you’ve done an interior, and a good one too, plus the studs-down underside looks great. Beautiful job, well done.

    NEW Delta-7 Jedi Starfighter - Minifig Scale MOC

    This is really well done, just a bit smaller than most Delta-7 mocs but the perfect size, overall small flat and sleek like it appears when Obi-Wan is standing beside it on Geonosis. Great job :)

    Friedies Millennium Falcon Moc/Mod 2nd Edition

    Incredible job here, the tunnel padding and 4 man cockpit are the cherry on a very well iced cake! It’s a very complex and aesthetically pleasing MOD, I love it.
