  1. 10212 UCS Imperial Shuttle Mod

    Well it has been awhile since i posted anything and now my weird obsession with the UCS Shuttle has brought me back again. So I have never been happy with the landing gear and decided to tear into this project again. i always felt that the landing gear needed to be attached to the structure of the model and not just an add on, also I wanted it to be able to be displayed on the stand in the landing position. So after tearing the ship apart one last time I think I'm satisfied with the outcome. I also went with some SNOT techniques around the ship as well as updating the engines, ramp, and rear gun. https://www.flickr.com/photos/151718857@N06/albums/72157689196649305/with/37322744156/ Not sure if my Flickr link will work

    Thanks for the reply, the set was one of the originals in the old light gray. I'm kicking myself because I didn't buy it, I was given first dibs but thought it would be too difficult to acquire the right color...I was wrong. It was swiped up real quick. I'm kicking myself because it was a great deal.

    So I had an opportunity to purchase a used UCS ISD but ended up passing on the purchase because it wasn't complete. My question actually is centered on the instruction manual, everything I've seen online states that it had a spiral bound instruction booklet but this one had a standard book bound manual. Has anyone else seen this? I'm only curious, didn't know if it was exclusive.

    Ended up buying it for $378 US after taxes, so the negotiated price was actually $350

    What would you pay for a used UCS Blockade runner? the stickers are crumbling and the UCS plate is missing, on the upside they do have the instruction booklet and all white pieces seem to be good without fading.

    LegoSWfan, The AT-AT is at about 1 1/2 mining scale it is Cavegods model, if you are wanting the instructions to it look through the forum there are specific threads on this topic which identifies the individual you can purchase the instructions from. As for my mods to the Imperial shuttle just PM me with your email address and I’ll send you the PDF file, as stated earlier I’m still working on the ramp LDD and will send out when finished. Thanks for the interest in my mods this is the first time I have sent these out so seeing interest makes me feel like appropriately updating already fantastic models.

    Adam, PM me and I’ll send you the LDD PDF for the landing gear it uses many components from the set so if you have sufficient bulk it should be relatively easy. one thing that I haven’t detailed is that you have to remove the (4) Dark Grey 1x2x4 pieces to allow for fitment of the 1x4x6 on the landing gear. I don’t have the LDD finished for the ramp yet but as soon as I do i’ll let you know.

    Ok so I decided to re-enigneer the landing gear for the Shuttle, I like the way it came out because it gives me another way to display it without the clunky set that was originally designed for it. if anyone one is interested in the parts/design I can post it here later.

    Thanks Lobot, I have struggled with posting pics which is why I’m using Flickr.

    So this morning I decided to tackle adding a ramp onto the Imperial shuttle. I ended up first designing on LDD then i went to work addressing the model itself, attached are the finished pics. I also mode the landing by adding slightly more height allowing for the minifigs to stand underneath the cabin. I think it finally gives the model a better representation when the wings are folded up and the landing gear are on. Tell me what you all think. https://www.flickr.com/photos/151718857@N06/shares/gL08tf

    Truthfully I don't remember the actual cost I do know it was around $500.

    If your referring to the imperial shuttle it was relatively easy compared to the other 2, the key is to try and limit the amount of stores to go through. I think the most expensive part was the cockpit window other than that pretty straight forward.
