  1. Hey man.  Not sure if you saw but I bumped your thread on your UCS Slave 1 mods and was wondering how you did it.  If you visit your thread (

    ), you can see the pics and explanation of where I am stuck.  Anyway man, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    My first Lego space display

    Hmm, I think I’d have the landing pad plate to one side. That way you have two whole crater plates to make a continuous display for small vehicles and ships. Do you find that the different Space styles (classic, Futuron, Space Police, etc) work together? I had been thinking of just using classic space sets to fit with Bennys spaceship and the space squad, but after seeing the various sets together, they don’t look too bad.

    My first Lego space display

    Nice work, am planning something like this myself. Personally I’d turn the base plate on the right so the raised part isn’t separating the figures on either side, and maybe use some plates, slopes or quarter circle bricks to join the two base plates rather than the dark grey plate. Something like this:

    10212 UCS Imperial Shuttle Mod

    Redbird, are you able to send me the instructions too? btw, do the landing gears on your shuttle fold up at all or are they fixed in place?

    10212 UCS Imperial Shuttle - any good mods?

    Thanks, I thought I’d seen some other threads on modding 10212 than this one!

    10212 UCS Imperial Shuttle - any good mods?

    Necrobump! scottishdave, did you ever get the landing gear to fold up? Just scored a cheapo 75094, and am looking at using it for parts to MOC an interior for 10212 and connect the cockpit and main body. Maybe even a boarding ramp...

    The Lego Movie 2 - The Second Part 2019 Set Discussion

    I’m tempted to try the concept Bennys battle buggy design : https://images.app.goo.gl/rRU6jv92vfvXZnpu7 had the Classic space mobile rocket launcher as a kid, so the battle buggy hit a lot of nostalgia spots for me.

    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    Thanks, but I got it sorted a few days back and she’s now sitting proudly in front of the UCS Falcon. 🙂

    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    Thanks. Been fiddling with it again tonight but still can’t see how to get it to work. I can eventually get the side panels into place after some persuading and a fair bit of swearing, but as soon as I try to get the middle sections into place, it all comes apart again. 😬

    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    Nearly finished, but the bottom of the fuselage right under the cockpit is driving me mad. I’ve spent ages trying to get the cargo bay area to work, but the fragility of the subassemblies, the stress they’re under from other sub assemblies, and the fact that it’s the obvious place to pick it up means that it simply isn’t sturdy enough. Anyone else had problems building this area?

    Causes gaps in the top of the fuselage in front of the cockpit when you put the top panels on? Managed to fill most of them with a couple of 1x6 plates. :)

    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    Still working on the cockpit segment after tearing it down and starting again, plus having to get some missing pieces sent through. One thing I didn’t like is that the sides on the stock model bow inwards due to the ball joint parts being too far apart, so I moved them and the black 1x3 plates forward by one stud, and used a pair of 1x1 tiles to fill the gap, as in the pic below, which now lets them sit straight and relieves the stress on them.

    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    Yeah, it’s going better tonight. 🙂 Seemed like a bit of a fragile mess at first, but it’s getting sturdier now and starting to look the business. Can see why Lego wouldn’t make this as an official set though, it’s very complex!

    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    Actually, should the wing mechanism be quite hard to move early on? I’m up to page 25 and finding it tough to open and close the wings using a technic bar and gear (it’s fairly easy to open them manually though), and am wondering if it’ll get easier further into the build.

    Just got the last order for this off BrickLink. Time to set to! So many small pieces!
