    Building Mortesv's Nebulon-B Thread

    Hi Eric L, The stand does not have a manual. You must use the Lego Digital Designer file that @churcholo provided to make it. Good Luck. Rockpig

    75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017 MOD/MOC

    Here you go. https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-10219/Lucioswitch81/effermans-vertical-stand-for-millennium-falcon-75192/#comments
  3. Someone earlier in this thread solved the problem by using 1/2 pins instead of the 2L pins. This seems to be the easiest solution. I took the wall apart and built it in place. The toughest part was the piece with the top pin. You will have to repeat this solution on page 82.

    You are welcome, Sir. I can't say this enough. Churcholo's stand is the only reason I decided to make this build. Build only as much as you have to with the stands to get the two halves together. Then go back and fill in the details. You'll find it less frustrating. Yes, the used parts were received in great condition. At the time I purchased them, they were just not available new or very expensive in new condition. Feel free to ask any questions about the spreadsheet. Enjoy the build. rockpig

    Hi All, Use the link below. I cobbled this together from my parts purchase spreadsheet, my notes on this thread and my actual build. It is not from a page by page reconciliation, so it should be 99.9% correct. If anyone finds any error, please let me know and I will incorporate the fix. It includes the parts for the @churcholo stand and removes only the Trans-Clear parts for the original stand. You will have the plates that make up the bottom of the original stand as extra. Always good to have some extra parts. Have fun! Found an error. Link updated 7/29/19. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1vD711GEs95ZKdHiMHnb74yMwCBwTrVj4/view?usp=sharing BTW - The half barrel (4424) from this link will require some drilling. I used a drill bit that fit comfortably into a pin connector. It worked perfectly.

    Hi, I just finished this last weekend and I can provide you a parts list with 99% of the changes and @churcholo's stand. It will take me a little time to do so. I can post a link for you in a few days. BTW - @churcholo's stand is the way to go. I can't imagine how anyone had the ability and patience to build this without it. I tip my hat to them. rockpig

    Great effort and work. Beautiful design. Any chance of ever adding the crawler?

    Yes that would be a cool thing to see. You could do the same with Lego UCS sets. Death Star 10143 has a SSD, SSD 10221 has a Star Destroyer, Star Destroyer 10030 has a Blockade Runner and then Rebel Blockade Runner 10019. That would also be a nice display.

    I purchased everything I could as new. I need the parts again. I don't have any display room, so this will be photographed, left on the table for a few weeks and then disassembled. I will be using about 3500+ pieces from this MOC to build MOCs 15881, 23556, 8143 and 23104. Doing the same thing, building, photographing, leaving it on the table for a while, disassemble and reusing the parts. The upside - I get to build them all and have plenty of parts for the next new big Star Wars MOC. The downside - I don't get to look at all of them together. Another upside. Instead of having to buy 48,000 + pieces to build all 5 MOCS. I can make them all by purchasing about 29,000+ parts. That cuts the cost around 40%.

    I just finished building this MOC yesterday. Part 4274 is used to hold the UCS plaque. Blue would be ok as they are not visible. The stand should work correctly with friction ridges or without. I prefer with friction. Here are my notes on installing the stand. I hope they are clear enough to follow. Front stand Attach front stands (1 x 15 liftarms) as per pages 528 – 529 and 535 – 536. (Note: the (4) 1 x 15 Black Liftarms from stand replace the (4) DBG 1 x 9 liftarms from these pages. 9 holes are for model, 6 holes belong to the stand.) Be mindful of pin placements in these steps. Back stand. Remove middle (4) hinge plates attached from page 6. Remove liftarm assemblies from pages 13 – 15 including pins. Remove the 4 top liftarms from stand and replace the (2) 1 x 11 liftarms installed on pages 16 with the 4 black liftarms from stand. Use 3L pins with Bushstop to attach to Technic, Brick 4 x 6 Open Center. Use 2L pins to attach to Vertical liftarms from page 11 & 12. Hope this helps. This build is as satisfying as it is occasionally frustrating. Good Luck, Rockpig

    I should add, churcholo designed an outstanding stand (no pun intended). Being attached to the internal structure makes it very secure and stable. I'm up to around page 450 (not counting the steps I jumped ahead that were required to get the front stand on). I have picked it up and turned it around at least a dozen times without anything falling off. So far, the only times parts have fallen off is due to my clumsiness.
