  1. [MOC] UT-60D U-wing (minifigure scale...ish)

    Got it. I'm still pretty new to this, so I appreciate the follow-up.
  2. [MOC] UT-60D U-wing (minifigure scale...ish)

    Hmm. I'm getting an error uploading to Bricklink that a part (No. 24246) is not within their catalog.
  3. [MOC] UT-60D U-Wing - SB00101 UCS

    Having built mine (and really love it) and after watching the movie again, I wonder if the UCS Snowspeeder windshield might make a better fit for the underside, somehow?
  4. Arrow Scout Kushan Homeworld

    Very accurate!
  5. The amusing microfighter [MOC]

    I love that little U-Wing.
  6. Arquitens-class Light Imperial Cruiser

    Looking at this model, you can see the inspiration: a mashup of the YT-1300 and the CR90 with a Star Destroyer. Awesome!
  7. [MOC] Dashing Banshee - YT-1300 Mod

    I really like this! Looks like a modern, high-tech update to the YT-1300. Would love to see a version in real bricks.
  8. [MOC] YT-2700 'Break of Day'

    This looks great; you've done an amazing job of incorporating familiar YT design elements, while creating something that both looks "purposeful" and has its own visual style. Also I really like how you've incorporated a lot of functionality and play features into the design.
  9. UCS Jedi Interceptor

    Awesome! Not one of my favorite ships, but you have absolutely done the curvy bits justice. Also, getting that much UCS detail with 1,000 pieces is awesome!
  10. [MOC] Naboo N-1 Starfighter + Breakdown

    Man, one of these days I will have to build the whole Inthert starfighter collection . . .
  11. [MOC] UT-60D U-wing (minifigure scale...ish)

    Love this color scheme. Makes it look less "truck-like."
  12. [MOC] UT-60D U-Wing - SB00101 UCS

    All finished. Man, this thing is massive! Very fun build process too, with a wide range of techniques and tricks. Very solidly put together, and a gorgeous end result. This was also my first large-scale Bricklinked MOC, and Mirko's instructions definitely spoiled me. Final thoughts: - The engine builds are probably my favorite part. Durable, lots of detail, and look great. - The wings are huge. Huge! No way I'd be able to display it with them deployed in a New York City office or apartment. As it is, I'm hoping the shelves in my office are wide enough to fit it in there . . . - I love how durable it is. While not swooshable due to weight, you can pick it up and move it around without any issues, so long as you don't grab it by the doors. Much easier than the more recent UCS Snowspeeder. Also the modular construction means that it breaks down for transportation well. - The instructions were great. Clear, easy to understand, and well-organized. There were a few things that were easier to do out of order (e.g., the 2x3 tiles with clips on the main structure (above the wing anchor points) that lock into the tiles on the bulkheads were easier to add after the bulkheads were in place, some of the areas where axles and Technic pieces meant that I had to do a little disassembly to fit everything together on the wings and the stand) but that is a tiny nit on maybe three steps out of hundreds. - I love how few stickers there were, and despite the challenge in putting on the cockpit sticker, the end result looks fantastic (plus the sticker material is durable enough to survive a number of attempts to put it on properly). I'll upload some pictures later.
  13. [MOC] UT-60D U-Wing - SB00101 UCS

    I've gotten through the fuselage and engines; all that's left is the wings and attaching the engines. Will finish after the honeymoon. Really fun build; so far the only parts that were tricky were getting the doors to sit right (they still tend to lean outwards somewhat and fall off easily), some of the joining of larger sections (there are limited points where you can place pressure on large flat constructions) and putting the sticker on the cockpit. However, it looks great and I love how all of the bulkhead plates lock in place (even the plates on either side of the lower windscreen); no flopping around or wiggling! Also the use of the boat weights to balance the construction is really well done.
  14. [MOC] UT-60D U-Wing - SB00101 UCS

    I believe I have all my bricks at this point (and most of the sections are in some degree of assembly, with only the engines completed), but it's unlikely I will finish before I leave for my honeymoon.
  15. [MOC] UT-60D U-Wing - SB00101 UCS

    I love the engine builds in this set. They're the size and shape of Star Wars-ified beer bottles, and are very satisfying to put together.
