    1978 ... I was 5 years old when my father took me in the modest village cinema to watch a movie ... I was struck by what would have forever changed the way of making films ... Star Wars.
    The next day, rummaging in the "keg of dixan" full of Lego bricks started to build my first spacecraft in the saga.
    From then on it was easy to combine two of my biggest passions that generated the complete collection Lego Star Wars UCS.

    The suggestion I can give is this: the shoulders should be positioned backwards and the arms bent slightly forward in order to balance the weight of the upper body and move the center of gravity of the masses in axis with the pelvis. In doing so, the weight will push in axis with the pelvis and will not have poroblems. Mine has been mounted for over two years and is straight.

    Hi Unclejeffie thanks for reporting and I have already corrected the error. Sometimes bricklink updates the code of some parts and loading the list gives an error. Without asking you to write me an email to send you the correct list, I suggest you download and install the "BrickStore" program. It is a small program that is used to manage the parts lists. Opening the list in the "BrickStore" program should automatically correct the code. Then save the list and reload it in bricklink. I hope I was helpful. If you have difficulty write me an email with the address from which you contacted me for instructions and I will send you the correct list.

    Hi William, one piece of advice I can give you about finding parts is this: LEGO.com has greatly enhanced the "Pick a Brick" service for purchasing parts in recent months. I believe that 80/90% of the parts can be purchased directly from the LEGO.com site and if you consider that the shipping costs are free above a certain amount, that is very interesting. In fact, with Bricklink you are forced to make many orders to buy all the parts and you have shipping costs for each order. With the "Pick a Brick" instead you will have a single order and all the new parts. The only cumbersome thing is that you have to manually enter the part numbers for the search and in some cases the part numbers of "Bricklink" do not correspond with the part codes that you find on "Pick a Brick". If you do not find a piece on the "Pick a Brick" it will be sufficient to open bricklink and check if the piece has alternative codes to look for. In 90% of cases you will find the part. Hope I've been of help and have fun!

    Good job! I hope all the steps were clear and simple.

    If you mean the black brick technichs I would say that in principle you can replace them with other colors (except those that can be seen when you open the side doors of the bomb bay). As for the 2x6 bricks I would say that they can be replaced with other 2x2 - 2x3 - 2x4 bricks because I usually use them in the filling areas or, in the case of the black ones, in the contour areas of the base. In the base you can also use longer bricks such as 2x8 and 2x10. However, I always recommend that you take a look at the construction phases first in order to realize the pieces that you can replace. Remember, however, that bricks are almost always present in the store of the LEGO site and you should buy them there because you can find large quantities.

    Fantastic! When I was a child Grendizer and Mazinger Z were my favorite themes! Well done!

    Hi Lahh001 I am happy that you have completed the MOC and that you enjoyed it. As for studs, I think it's a matter of personal taste. I have always considered the stud to be a distinctive element of the LEGO building system and personally I like to see it. This is why in my MOCs I don't mind it being in sight here and there. However this is a subjective opinion. Great job anyway and thanks for the positive feedbak!

    SB00601 AR-PROJECT (MOC AT-RT 501 version UCS)

    hahaha! In fact, in my work I deal with anti-seismic structures for residential buildings. Perhaps that is why I dedicate a lot of time to studying the statics of my MOCs.

    SB00601 AR-PROJECT (MOC AT-RT 501 version UCS)

    Hi Kevin, yes you are right! Working at night is not good! :-) He stands upright, in perfect balance. I have been testing the construction for 6 months and it has not dropped 1mm .. Thanks for the greetings. I have no intention of taking breaks but I always have very little time to devote to this passion of mine and the commitments with my family and my work in the office in the last two years have increased. Thank you all for your good wishes and compliments. It was a demanding MOC but I am very satisfied with the final result. As usual, I favored design and proportions but I devoted a lot of time to the study of solidity and balance
  11. Strength and balance AR-Project SB00601 UCS scale MOC of the AT-RT (All Terrain Reconnaissance) first appeared in Star Wars episode III Revenge of the Sith. Here proposed in the livery of the 501. The design and construction was a challenge to the laws of physics and a "balance exercise". Composed of 4395 bricks + 1 minifig it is in perfect scale with the TR-Project.

    I'm working on the instructions but I don't have a certain date yet. It depends on work commitments and family commitments. However sooner or later the instructions of the TR-Project will also arrive
