  1. Major update on the Lambda Shuttle. I have had time (like most people) the last month to work on other projects so have almost gotten the shuttle complete!! Since my last post: - Internal structure has been sured up, still not motorised wings but they do hold in place with the gearing that is in there. Maybe one day I will make them motorised but not just now. - Cockpit is now complete and comes off like the escape pod with technic pins like its supposed to in the lore - Main hull is now complete - Lights for engines, battery pack and landing lights are built in with switches at the back - Landing gear is on, not that accurate but it is over 4.7kg of lego with the wings at the moment, so would rather they were strong than movie accurate. It does balance on the 2 landing gear alone so thats more inportant to me just now. - The side wings are done but are the last parts to be attached to the main hull as they are a pain in the *** to get off. Still to do: - Engines need to be done, currently waiting on parts from bricklink to arrive for them - The part connecting the top sail to the hull needs to be worked out - The interior needs seats and details added to it but that can come at a later point. - The removable side panels of the hull need a bit of tweaking to sit nicely and need some parts added to them to make them finished.

The wings, main sail and sides of the main hull are done and can attach. This has been the biggest hurdle.

  2. Big update on the MOC. I have given up making the wings motorised. I am sure it is possible but I'm not sure how. I would rather get the design finished and then can try tinker with the internal mechanism once its built.

  3. Finaly an update on this side project of mine! The current mechanism works (technicaly on V6 as I have updated it since taking this video!) The gears dont slip and the motor seems to be holding strong so far. Currently rebuilding the wings to get them at full weight and then see how it copes. Once the motor mechanism works i will see how I can get it inside the shape of the hull. This may end up more 'inspired by' MB's version than anything else!

  4. Yes @Reaper Unfortunatly I think I am going to have to redo a bit of the wings to add in more connection points to the mechanism. I am giving ti another couple runs in Stud.io and then in bricks but I think that the MB design for wings is just too heavy for the mototz/gearing I am using. No idea how he managed it with his version AND had room for an interior. I would also love to see the mechanism used for the Cavegod & Brickvault Zeta Class shuttle as that's motorised and pulls the weight of those wings with no issue it appears. I bought the ones that Regegade Clone made and its just a version of the 10212 mechanism. Unfortunately that isn't holding the weight of these!
  5. I have been slowly working on this. I have used the internal structure (with the bricks I have) from 10212. It is strong and holds the structure and weight of the wings. The 2 XL motors are more than enough to move the wings and in fact I think one would probably do the job. The gears keep slipping unfortunately though and I am not sure what to do to stop that. I am going to hopefully be able to build it in Stud.io and then order the parts I'm missing soon but no ETA on that yet. Anyone built the BrickVault version of the Zeta by Cavegod?

  6. @Lbcwanabe Thank you very much! I am using the digital model to sketch out ideas but not the final design, its all being done in bricks because the weight of the wings has to be taken into consideration and that's all got to be done in bricks! @stormtroopercaptain @La Chupacabra Thank you both for the support, I am hoping to make some more progress now I have the motor functions set and try out the motor! I will update once I have more progress!
  7. Hi folks, Update on the build is that over Christmas I have managed to build the main sail and wings. I am redesigning the whole internal structure of the hull. It's proving to be quite complicated. I started with the design used for 10212 but stretched so that it fits the measurements of the hull but it is somewhat complicated to get right. The flipping the studs on the underside of the hull means that the clear blocks that are used in the body wont fit I don't think. I am working around the idea of it being done with power functions but the wings are so heavy that the internal structure needs to be SOLID and the gearing has to be just right. Any tips from anyone would be much appreciated!

  8. - Update - Unfortunately for the past few weeks I have had to shelf the project as work has gotten in the way. Not to mention the mounting Bricklink orders taking their toll! I think that the internal structure of the model needs totally reworked. I am going to attempt to adapt the internal structure of 10212 to suit this project however I am not 100% sure how im going to do that. The wings are built and have had to be restructured a little bit with regards to technic pins and things to keep the strength in them. It could be stronger but I think that it is okay while keeping within MB's original design, will probably iterate on this at some point too. The build for the wings is much heavier than I had anticipated so I am going to spend a lot longer working in bricks to make sure it holds the weight well. I need to get a good solid base for the main hull to work from first, my current build is a bit weak and wouldn't hold up to the weight of the wings at all! I am not 100% sure when I will be able to get back to this especially with BrickVault having released that perfect B-wing from Inthert! I would like to get the design finished this year however this is coming into a busy period for me but will try to update this again soon. Images of the wings to follow in a couple days.
  9. @stormtroopercaptain Thanks for the support! Yea its an amazing ship design. I really enjoyed working backwards from MBs' photos but I don't think I am going to try doing my own design for a while yet! I think MBs' version is the best I have seen. I love the SNOT design for the majority of it but with some studs on show to remind you that it is lego still. It ties in nicely with the Inthert ships I have built so far! Just waiting for Brickvault to release those B-wing instructions to have all the rebel ships! :D
  10. So the latest update is that i now have 95% of by brick link orders and I am getting going with the build to test bits out with it. I have come across some things that I didn't really consider like rarely of a couple pieces in white but its not a big deal to change the colour to tan/LBG/dark tan or similar with this build. I have done the majority of the cockpit now with the build to hold the angles in place much more steady and feel more secure. Still need to work out the two wedge sections that come up underneath the cockpit though.

I will need to also work on the attachment of the cockpit to the main hull as its a bit weak just now. Lambda Shuttle Build by Hamish Dobbie, on Flickr
  11. Update on the cockpit - I took a second pass at the connections of the different parts and simplified it a bit! It feels more sturdy and takes up less room on the internal volume of the cockpit which is good because this till has to fit over the rest of the hull.

  12. Managed to get a couple hours playing about with hinge parts to locate the angles of the cockpit. It's a HOT MESS but its close to the correct locations for the parts. As a first draft of the connections it works but needs ALOT of work on the joints. Those ball joints are a bit of a lifesaver for this! Again all suggestions are welcome!

  13. Thanks @JarJarBonks The angles of the cockpit are really complicated. Im waiting for a load of different hinge parts to be delivered so I can experiment with how to connect it up! Im planning on updating this thread with progress as I go. If anyone has any advice I am all ears!
  14. @JarJarBonks It is by no means finished. In my OP I mentioned that I'm stuck on the landing gear and cockpit. There is a ramp at the cockpit but at this point I have no plans for an interior but there is plenty of room for it to be added later. The wings are geared so there could be motor functions added at a later date. I want to get the main body worked out and then work out the rest in bricks I think.

  15. @olympicknight12 I dont see why not, I would want to get MB's permission first :)
