    SFS TIE/x1 Advanced

    Does anyone know why all these TIEs seem to be harder to buy parts for recently? Used to be the parts for an interceptor were about 100-120 dollars, but now it seems like it's more around 150-200 with upwards of ten different stores
  2. Hello again everyone; In about a week or two, I should have finished my mods to this amazing SD. Should I make a new post, or just show it here?

    75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017 MOD/MOC

    Awesome, thanks! Does anyone happen to have one of those comparison pictures that shows the outline of the studio model on top of the lego model, that shows where the main areas are different? I can't seem to find one anywhere...

    As of the TLJ MF set 75257, they do exist in LBG. It might take a little bit for them to get on Bricklink, but they're there. That's interesting what you said about the docking rings being too short, I may have a look at that in the future but for now I think that particular issue is last on my list. It may simply look better if I make the lower DBG ring around the turret base LBG, I'm not sure why they made it half dark and half light. I think I will ignore the inner angle of the mandibles for now, because I've never noticed it before in my life until you said it, so I think that's a minor issue lol! Thanks for the resource and all your help, the only question I think I have for the moment is how your connection system works for the hull plates to make the studs radially aligned?

    Yes, there's no way that's real. My bet is that it's either a scam, or they're using LEPIN pieces.

    75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017 MOD/MOC

    Hello everyone; I just got this set built and on Efferman's stand yesterday, and looking forward to starting the mod process. I'm going to go with a more accurate exterior rather than an interior, so this is a short list of planned changes: 1. The gun turrets are too tall, they need to be 1 stud tall/wide/whatever rather than 2 studs tall to sit flatter on the hull. 2. The mandibles need to move forward a bit and the central section elongated so that the forward hull can be the same diameter semicircle as the back. 3. I'm going to strengthen the frame so that it can be carried by the docking hatch areas rather than the bottom. 3. Add more detail on the bottom, cover gaps, and make the hull a more uniform color for the ESB look. They have a large mix of colors but the Falcon is actually a much more uniform light gray. 4. Add more tiled areas to lessen the texture difference between the cockpit and access tunnel and the hull. A lot of people think the Falcon shouldn't be smooth, but open studs are, I think, more accurate because most details on the model are too small for a Lego representation. Especially viewed from further away, the Falcon looks more smooth than stud-y in my opinion. 4. Redo the engine like everyone else 5. Hopefully use some of ScottishDave's hull designs so that the plates are more radially shaped, because a lot of the Falcon's details are radial from the center. 6. Add landing gear flaps to make them look retractable. Does anyone know if the new 4x6 wedge plates are better for the mandible angles, or would we need like a 3.5x6 wedge plate? The current method makes the mandible sides look a little curved, because of the way the 3x6 plates have to be moved out of line to cover gaps.

    This is almost exactly what I want mine to look like! Does he have any pictures on how he made it?

    Do you guys think it would be possible to apply the method from the new MF set that has no hull gaps?
  9. How do y'all think Star Destroyer MOCs will change now that there are 4x6 wedge plates in LBG?

    Great! Where do I get the instructions/ parts list for Efferman's stand?

    Hello everyone; I'm planning on getting this set in about two weeks, and I want to institute several of these mods. Am I all right to resurrect this thread, or is there a more current one?

    [MOC/INSTRUCTION] ISD Monarch

    Hello everyone; Been admiring this piece for some time now! I have the Aggressor built, but neither the space nor money for both of these! So I'm considering disassembling the Aggressor in favor of the Monarch, but I'm having a slight difficulty. Does anyone know of a way to apply the aggressor parts list to a Monarch wanted list so I could simply see what I'm missing, or do I have to manually count all the parts and add them individually?

    When are we going to get a master Millennium Falcon? I'd love to see what you could do with maybe between play set and UCS scale!
