  1. I commented on Reddit too, but I love this ship and the crew. :) having the cockpit mounted where it is is pretty original, and the color scheme and greebling are top-notch! The mandible shape is also pretty interesting, and if made them larger you could've called it megaloptera instead of trichoptera! ;) if you have any shots of the interiors of the body or cockpit, I'd love to see them!
  2. Fast Food Falcon [MOC]

    That's super clever man! I like the use of pepperoni and mushrooms as detailing. :)
  3. [MOC] YT-1930 Nebulon Baron

    Looks pretty great man, the shape is very fun, it almost has a classic space feel to it. I feel like a jonesin' addict, but... Ya got any of them interior shots? :)
  4. [MOC] The Sphyrna: A Freighter Wars Entry

    Great ship, man! I love the little "toy sized" YT1300 in the crew area. and the interior engine area is superb, I love the use of the engines from the old Zam speeder chase set! The overall shape is awesome, very original, and I like (what looks like to me) the tank treads around the cockpit hallway. Color scheme and greebling are stellar, and the crew is very cool! The brick-built droid is rad as well, plus your sensor dish is great. Any other interior shots? I'm a sucker for them. Best of luck to you! :)
  5. UCS Jedi Interceptor

    That interior looks great, well done! And I hope they make the pieces you need. :)
  6. UCS Jedi Interceptor

    Excellent job man, I love that you built both Obi-Wan's and Anakin's. You captured the cockpit shape very well, and your wings turned out perfectly. What parts did you have to paint? And can I see the cockpit interior? :)
  7. [MOC] Dashing Banshee - YT-1300 Mod

    That's gorgeous! As others have said, I love the studless design and the color scheme. The TIE-like fins work really well with the overall lines of the ship as well! Do you plan on building it in the future? And is the interior detailed at all? Best of luck to you man! :)
  8. [SWEU] - Cat. B - I-7 Howlrunner

    This rendition of the Howlrunner is spectacular, I love the greebling and the lines of the ship! It's so sleek. The power generator and shield array in particular are stellar. I know that this is an old post and I hate to be "that guy", but do you have any tips or instructions on how to replicate this? Thanks! :)
  9. [MOC] The Corellian Eclipse - Armoured YT-1300

    Great looking ship, Kit! It's a really cool interpretation of a YT, and I really like the attention to detail. I especially love the use of a mjölnir hammer as a liquor bottle! The crewman chasing the rat (small womprat?) is a nice touch too. Like some others posted, I'd love a few shots of the engine compartment (if it's finished) and the cockpit interior! :)
  10. [MOC] Ebon Hawk

    Great job man, like others, I really like the color scheme! The mix of red, dark red, and brown is great. I also love the boarding ramp photo from Flickr, you should've posted that as well! Do you have plans on adding more detail to the interior?
  11. [MOC/MOD] T-47 Airspeeder ''Snowspeeder''

    Thank you for the heads-up, I've checked it out! :) I do prefer your color additions though. And holy cow, that's a lot of work on your plate. Best of luck on building, may the force be with you!
  12. [MOC] YT-1450 Light Freighter - "The Nadir"

    Hey man! That's a gorgeous ship, I love the overall design. You definitely stayed true to the overall YT design, but it's unique and sleek! The dual cannon emplacements look fantastic, as does the cockpit area. Do they both actually rotate? I'm not sure why, but I really enjoy the use of the half-circle tiles on top of the large dish on the top of the ship (the color scheme overall and the greebling both are outstanding). Can I be super weird and ask for a shot of the bottom of the ship? It looks like you've finished that off as well, and it'd be a shame for it to go to waste! :) I checked your Flickr and didn't see it there. Thanks for posting the Nadir, I hope you do well in the contest! :)
  13. [MOC/MOD] T-47 Airspeeder ''Snowspeeder''

    Looks great, man! You did an awesome job overall, especially with the color palette. The inclusion of the olive green and tan accents really does make it look more worn! The angles of the front are likewise really well-executed. Could you include a shot of the back, the undersides, and inside the cockpit? I'd love to see the radiator fins, it looks like you did a great job on those. :) I can't speak to the etiquette of topic-making, though, sorry! I look forward to seeing the rest of your ships regardless.
  14. Hey man! I just made an account, figure I should actually comment on this thread. I love your MOC, you've done an amazing job, and I've loved watching your progression of the model over time! It's vastly superior to the original Lego version. In regards to your cockpit interior, I think you've done a fantastic job with the joysticks and the printed panels. Maybe make one or two of the top ones non-buttons, and something more holographic looking? That's the only suggestion I've got! :)
  15. [MOD] 9500 Sith Fury

    Hey guys! I posted this a week or two ago over at the Star Wars Lego subreddit, and figured I'd post it here for my first posted topic! I decided to modify my Sith Fury, and I found @billyamy's post before photobucket held it for ransom and stole a bunch from it took inspiration from it. Let me know what you think, criticism is always welcome! I'm pretty freshly out of my dark ages, so there are a lot of parts and building techniques that are still new to me. Not seen is a bunch of structural changes I did to the interior, filling holes and generally reinforcing the model. The pictures aren't amazing, but I hope they're okay! The first mod I did was to fill in the interior of the wings with a plate and some light greebles. Seeing inside of the wings really bugged me in the stock model, I wish Lego had done something to fill it in. Next was to replace the flick-fire missiles with black telescope parts on a SNOT bracket, with a TIE wing circle tile for detail. I don't really like flick-fires, and I don't need the play feature, so out they go. I also switched the old cockpit with one of the new TIE cockpits. Not exactly canon, but I like it better! I also changed the top, but there'll be more photos of it later. Here's a view of the ship from the front. You can see the (slightly out of focus) black slopes covering trans-red plates on the tips of the wings, which I added for fun, but later found out that the in-universe ship has something similar! Here's that top view I was talking about. I'm not super thrilled about the tiles and slopes around the cockpit, but it's what I settled on. Ideas are appreciated! You can also see that I've replaced the click hinge portions over the cockpit and troop area, I don't really need to get into those areas and I like them better covered with plates and greebling. The former troop area is now a reactor area, so I added vents and an engine block above that area. However, I feel like there's too much black. Next is a cockpit interior shot! I've added some joysticks and some printed panels, and you can see at the top is a mudguard piece. I copied this from @Bricks Feeder's amazing TIE Advanced Prototype post, where he used it right on top of his TIE windshield. I have some issues with the offset of my windshield here, since I can't make it sit in deep enough... If you guys have ideas on how to fix this, I'm all ears. Anyway, the mudguard lets it sit slightly more evenly on the part where it touches the ship. Next is the back, where I took a lot of direction from @billyamy again. I realize it doesn't look nearly as nice as theirs, nor as nice with the wings folded out, but it lets in more light. I added octagon modified plates with clip plates around the engines to give more detail to the nacelles, and some slopes, vents, and assorted greebles around the engines as well. Here's a not-so-great shot of the technic mechanism that @billyamy used in their post to open up the back of the ship. I think it's brilliant and blends in much better with the ship Instead of troops, you get this! It's a smashed-together engine/reactor thing. I looked around and didn't find many ideas, so I cobbled it together. What dyou guys think? It's a mess of trans red studs, some curved slopes, some vent pieces, and some gumption. That's it for my first topic! I hope you guys like it, let me know if there are more photos that you want.
