  1. [WIP] Classic Porsche 911

    It's fantastic. My only question is are there any alternate tyres/wheels you could use? A lower profile tyre or one with less deep-set tread might look nicer. But that really is nit-picking what is otherwise a sensational build!
  2. I've still got my fingers crossed for some sort of revival of the theme based on the LEGO movie sequel or as part of the 40th anniversary... I'm prepared for disappointment though.
  3. Classic Space Lego pile comes back to life

    Wonderful stuff! Really enjoying seeing all these sets, even though I have one or two of them myself. Your collection is just fantastic and in much better condition!
  4. [MOC] The Sphyrna: A Freighter Wars Entry

    I didn't know where best to post this piece of news, but the result of the freighter wars contest has been put back until Nov 24th... didn't seem significant enough for it's own thread. (quoted below from the comments page). "REBRICKADMIN Hi everyone! Unfortunately we've had to postpone announcing the winners because there were so many awesome entries for the judges and Lucasfilm to look though. This extra time will allow them to carefully review all the amazing entries that were submitted. We are sorry for the delay but appreciate your patience!" Oh, and thanks @roadstermatt!
  5. [MOC] The Sphyrna: A Freighter Wars Entry

    Thought I'd just share a few more shots as I managed to find some time to edit them. Top and bottom, this picture might be a bit dark, I forgot to adjust the levels. All the panels open. Ryk's Lego room! For the freight being carried by the Sphyrna, I thought it would be fun to use the new Falcon we are all trying to win. To make a sticker for the 2x2 tile, I had to simplify the box art somewhat, oh and 'remove' the logos! Although this looks a bit rough and very basic, anything more complicated or accurate looked awful when printed out at size! Finally, here's the very rough design sketch I did before I started building as a guide for where I was aiming to get to. The basic frame structure owes a little bit to the 4504 but I deviated from it quite a bit in the end, especially where my mandibles connected. At the scale there aren't too many options open. I just hope that won't count against me.
  6. Survey: New parts and new colors

    5,6,9 and 10 definitely! I'd also add 18990 and any other sized domes they saw fit to add!
  7. Next UCS Set

    I've seen this sort of thing suggested a few times over the years and I've always thought they'd great. I like your additions of the minifigure and stand though, takes it to the realms of possibility. Definitely collectable and they'd be great parts packs too!
  8. [MOC] YT-2700 'Break of Day'

    This is brilliant. Good work all round, and some great play elements!
  9. [MOC] Naboo N-1 Starfighter + Breakdown

    It's really, really good. Fab detailing and you've captured the shape perfectly.
  10. [MOC] YT-1300 Space Pirate Ship

    Really great little features and clever detailing make this a nicely believable variation.
  11. [MOC] Dashing Banshee - YT-1300 Mod

    Really nice! This contest has really created some great variations, this is in keeping and believable. Lovely details.
  12. Fast Food Falcon [MOC]

    Nice idea! Great stuff.
  13. YT-Andromeda

    It's great. I know it's a bit odd to pick on one thing but I love the cargo container attached to the side, lovely bit of detail that gives scale and context!
  14. [MOC] The Sphyrna: A Freighter Wars Entry

    Thanks man, those are some very kind comments! I do have a few other interior shots, but I ran out of time to edit them! I'll try to add more pics in the next couple of days :-) Thanks for the kind words. I was pleased with the radar dish but having used Nexogons fairly extensively on a few previous occasions I was tentative about using one again, it just came together really well though, so I had to use it!
  15. [MOC] YT-1930 Nebulon Baron

    Think you nailed it with that colour scheme. The dark blue against the olive work really well. Nice shape and detailing too.
