    [Mod][Moc] Death Star midi-scale

    Hi all, Maybe you know the cool MOC-5505 Death Star II midi-scale (https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-5505/집중/death-star-ii-midi-scale/) here the LDD recreation Death_Star_01 by Rusty B. I've modded that creation to obtain a better solid structure, a transparent stand and more detailed exterior Death_Star_02 by Rusty B. here a comparison of the original moc and my modded version Death_Star_03 by Rusty B. Death_Star_04 by Rusty B. outside the modded version has more detailed curved panels ans a better round disc superlaser, but the major work i've done is inside, the original moc has the round structure of the Death Star, with the curved panels, only posed on the internal structure/stand... the only parts blocked on the structure/stand are the "building" sections of the Death Star... i wanted to fix that aspect of the moc, and found some solutions to fit and block all the external structure to the internal structure/stand Death_Star_05 by Rusty B. now the round section with curved panels is blocked with the internal structure/stand, the result is a more solid creation... the round panels are blocked in position too because someone love the Death Star II and some one the first version, i recreated the both versions, ofcourse with similar but different internal structure/stand Death_Star_06 by Rusty B. But i think someone not want only a Death star as a display set... maybe someone want a playset, or a little diorama inside it... mantaining the lower structure/stand and let the superior curved panel movable, is possible to obtain a little, but usefull, amount of space to create a little vignette here the Death Star I when opening the round panels Death_Star_Playset_01 by Rusty B. and now with all the round panels opened, and rotated emperor throne Death_Star_Playset_02 by Rusty B. i know, i know... the "final duel" was not inside the Death Star I, but is only to explain the potentiality of the space, and because i love the rotating emperor throne for this i made the Death Star II version, more canonical... but with firm throne Death_Star_Playset_03 by Rusty B. i think is possible make other vignette inside, with a bit of imagination... mine are a prototype with not mutch details... but, only changing the emperor throne orientation inside the Death Star I, all other minifig can be stay in that position and the round panels can be opened and closed perfectly... as always, i used only exsting bricks in existing colors... i think to build soon in real bricks one version of my modded moc for Chrstmas, and than i will post more photos of the creation.... for now, i hope you like my work comments, opinions and mostly criticism are always welcome

    [Mod][Moc] Death Star midi-scale

    here there are the modifications by your suggestions: i've changed the color of the jumper tiles and grilles, and modified the trench details... i think now the trench is less visible (as color impact, and maybe only in the render) but looks more detailed... anyway i mantained the plates with rails.... Death_Star by Rusty B. Death_Star by Rusty B. i like a lot those modifications... so, thank you! and for your "taste", the design looks better now?

    ofcourse your suggestion is your opinion... but i think opinions can help imagination, so, i will try to do the things suggested and later i value if i like them or not :) i think the trench is a must... the original Death Star is made by 2 hemisphere with a trench in the middle.... as i said, i not usually work in this scale... but i dont want renounce about details

    [Mod][Moc] Death Star midi-scale

    i used the plates with rails as "obligatory choice" to have a trench of 1 stud high... because i not found another way to have a 1 stud trenc in the middle of a 4 stud high plate... if you got a suggestion to not use all those plates with rails, thanks... for the "middle band" you are right, some studs would give a more believable shape to the trench... maybe some "non continous" studs... for the dish... a 5 wide not exist, for this i preferred to use the 6 wide... for me a dish little more big is better on the overall shape than the 4 wide... and lets to make a complete turbolaser rays system... i can try to replace the ark bluish grey grilles and tiles with stud to obtain a more natural shape for the scale of this Death Star... i'll work on those changes by your suggestions, and than i'll post the result... anyway, thanks a lot for your opinion and suggestion! rarely i work on that scale, so i appreciate a lot the suggestion of other designers to improve my model and my ability above all...

    "love to see the plan of this" i not understand what you mean... thanks a lot or your appreciation! and yes, all the minifig are connected by a floor stud and in that position stay inside perfectly with he DS panels closed... only in DS1 the Emperor throne need to be rotated to let the panels to be closed... for the instructions, i send to you a PM... and i will check Rebrickable to understand how it works... sadly i had a lot of problem in my real life, so my own website is already under construction,,,

    [MOC] Rogue Shadow

    Rogue_Shadow by Rusty B. hi all, this is my last work, a commissioned design about the Rogue Shadow starship seen in "The Force Unleashed 2" videogame. https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Rogue_Shadow Lego made one original set about the first version of the ship, but the commissioner wanted an original design of the second version of the model. ofcourse i rescaled the proportion, because the original one is a big ship, instead i made a starfighter with this design. Rogue_Shadow by Rusty B. Rogue_Shadow by Rusty B. the wings can be opened for the "flight mode" and closed for landing Rogue_Shadow by Rusty B. the retractable landing gear substain perfectly all the ship weight and in closed mode are totally hidden Rogue_Shadow by Rusty B. Rogue_Shadow by Rusty B. the cockpit can be easly opened through the shape of the "mandibles" and at the back there is a storage space that can fit inside a complete lightsaber and 2 blaster... more pics on my Flickr What do you think about this creation? if someone wants the instructions, contact me in private.. as always, comments, opinions, criticism are very welcome! with your feedback i can improve my design skills

    [MOC] Rogue Shadow

    sadly the wedge plate are not snot... and my structure desitn not allow to use more sleek shape... for make it with snot, all the structure would be changed, making the front more fragile... my design is super solid, perfect for let a kid play with it... when the commissioner will finish to build the ship i ask to him to give you his personal feedback about the solid structure i've designed

    Starting SW collection

    the two Death Star are different... and the difference dont make one better than the other... are different... one is newer, but a lot of people like more the old one... if you really want understand the differences, there are a lot of comparsion on internet, here on eurobricks too... but the point is another... asking "what Death Star you guys prefer?" dont make you understand what YOU would prefer... "What differences the two sets got eachother?" is a good question to understand what YOU prefer... but i repeat, this forum and the internet also are plenty of reviews about it... your not seems a question of one who wants make a personal collection... seems a question of one person who want understand what sets are more prestigiable to make a "reselling" business... and it is would not a bad thing... but if someone make a question for helping him with a personal collection for him and his child... he must make different question, not like yours
  13. Rustinidiel

    Starting SW collection

    is the same thing... what do YOU prefer? why buy what WE prefer? is a nonsense for me and for the suggestion of what sets are essential for a collecction... depends: someone prefers little sets, someone bigger... someone prefers minifig scale sets, someone prefers UCS scale... someone prefers old school style, some other prefers new ones... someone prefers light side sets, someone dark side... and there are some people not want original one but prefers buy parts to make their own sets... i really not understand your point: -if you really want make a collection... buy what YOU prefer, with your taste... -if you want know the prestige of some sets, why? but anyway... go to bricklink, high price means high prestige in the most of cases
  14. Rustinidiel

    Starting SW collection

    this is only my opinion: your question was about choosing some sets to have a your own collection playable with your child... but it seems ou want understand what retired sets got prestige... for a personalcollection, and the same for a child playing collection, i think the better choiche you can do is to see all the sets published and choose by your own what is the best for you... because is your collection.. for example for me maybe one set s the best, but for you not... you will buy that set because i said it is the most beautyfull? for another example... if i want buy a millennium falcon, i would buy the 75105 (that i think is the best) and than i will buy the minifigs to obtain the original trilogy crew... i really think you must choose some sets you like, taking in mind your preferences abut factions, details etc... and the preferences of your child too maybe, when you choosed one set, you can ask if the community think this set is a good playable set... but we cant choose sets for your collection... i repeat, this is my opinion, but i really not understand why asking us to choose for you... if you wan see all the sets published, go to bricklink site and you can see them all

    Diy LED system

    hi, i hope this is the right section (if not, moderators move this discussion as you wish) i hope someone can help me: i want light up my creations, town buildings and others... i've seen a lot of light kits online but are very expensive for me... because of it i thinked to create my own "kit" with leds, soldering etc... my question is: someone know a place online with good prices for micro leds (maybe pre-wired) in europe? i cant buy them from USA because shipping cost are crazy for an european user... thanks to all
  17. Rustinidiel

    Diy LED system

    wait... i got a doubt... you said to use 2 batteries 1,5v... fot a 3v of total... this means the led need 3v and with usb (providing 5v) a resistor is needed to downgrade the voltage o 3v... right? but the led strip/chain found on amazon use 3 batteries 1,5v... for a 4,5v in total... my doubt/question is: what voltage need those leds?

    Diy LED system

    cooi, and they need some resistance?
  19. Rustinidiel

    Diy LED system

    i know that product... is a strip, or a chain, with a lot of led together... you use it as strip or unbuilding it and use single led per time? because i need single leds,,, if in a town building i want light up a lamp in an apartment, a strip is not usefull

    What is this tube piece???

    if you zoom the pic, you can see what you try to identify is not one piece... but 2 hoses, one with little diameter, and a pneumatic hose for the part with diameter bigger... the proof is on the right side of that mix of parts... he used the same pneumatic hose... ofcourse the designer had cut the hoses to obtain the length wanted... i hope this helps you
  24. my fault... i've controlled right now... and you are in right: the pdf downloaded from the Lego service have weird names of the file... i remembered wrong because when i search an instruction, i copy the set number... Ctrl+V on the Lego service search bar, and Ctrl+V when save the file... anyway it not takes time to being done...
  25. if you prefer that method... i'm not saying it is nosense... but i not see that complicated the procedure on Lego site as you said... the pdf have as a meaningful name, the number of the set.. i'm registered and when search an instruction, automatically the site select the pdf wirth the right region version... really, for me the official method is very simple and fast... i not see the interesting thing you said... but, well, if you enjoy it, good
