    (MOC) - Cavegod's UCS Sandcrawler

    1. Difficult to judge really, but it took me about 5 months, including collating and setting up an inventory for all the parts. 2. Havent noticed any amendments, and only minor modding required of the top corner A frame connections. 3. Don’t think there any issues with swapping panels for bricks; indeed you may find this is the only way to complete it nowadays. As for the weight, the structure is pretty robust and should take the extra weight easily IMHO. 4. Might as well buy the instructions now I reckon, no point collecting the parts otherwise. And anyway they are a quality piece of work, I actually enjoyed just flicking through them. good luck, it’s extraordinary how good it looks when completed.

    Trench Run MOC to Display Minifig Scale Ships

    This looks really well thought out. Can not wait to see it evolve. Maybe avoid too much of a regular grid pattern, and add some randomness to it. Only a suggestion, and good luck.

    Looks incredible, love the mods too. I ended up going down the SNOT route for the roof and cockpit section, maybe getting slightly carried away! Bricksmarlin; how did you attach the plates here, can’t see the half pin, yet on mine it looks very noticeable. Thanks for your help.

    Finished. Most enjoyable out of all my sets; huge thanks to Cavegod for releasing it and thanks for the decent instructions too.

    Some of those dark brown bricks are hard to find; I used dark brown inverted slopes 1X2 and just turned them sideways on, so you only see the back portion, i.e. the 1x1 side. as for the replacement for the motors I believe it would be quite a simple mod, but maybe worth buy one to see how it would have to replicate the holes for the technic pins.

    Outstanding effort all round there. Taken it too another level...like the MB touches to the roof as well.

    Looks great, can’t wait to see it finished. Are you using the extended interior module to support the cockpit?

    Both main A frame side walls, completed, but had a stability issue with the left hand side one, requiring some re-enforcing plates, which was after several rebuilds due to it self destructing. I’m missing a few parts for the roof, which I’m going to eventually greeble more I think. But I have to say, it looks incredible. This was the one MOC. I really wanted to own, however it’s a massive project and has taken me months! But the satisfaction is worth overcoming the odd difficult bit.

    Well done, it looks great from here. Now it’s finished, what do you think of the build?

    Yeah, I’m now doing the same, they just seem to prevent the alignment of the sides against the frame. Did you notice the use of the the plate hinge on both the side panel and the main part of the body? Seem to get in the way of each other?

    Great work, plus excellent photos too. I’m working on the front interior but I need to order more parts as I’m short some how. I look forward to seeing how you attach the first forward side panels.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/127267303@N04/27427836477/in/dateposted/ What’s going on with the double hinge plates here? Looks like there meant to be protruding but in the various Flickr shots, they look combined with the structural sides?

    Looks like you’ve done well so far to be honest.
