    [MOC] TIE Bomber

    The third model in my classic imperial TIE class ships line up. Both hulls are based and joint together with a technic frame which makes the model rigid and solid. The panels are built with the technique I've introduced in my TIE Interceptor. That makes the upper and lower parts of them locked securely in place and with the right angles, as I pay much attention to the proportions. All of the details are intentional - they are supposed to resemble the real built of this very interesting ship in Star Wars universum. Shaping of the front of the bomb hull was obviously inspired by Jerac (credits) yet it is definitely different built. It is pretty heavy as for its size - the piece count is 1643. There is a tight space for a minifig pilot in the cockpit. More pics on my flickr account here. If you like it, you may find pdf step-by-step instructions on rebrickable.

    UCS Rey's Speeder

    I was just wondering how come there are over 5500 bricks at yours. Seemed impossible unless you used just 1x1 plates inside :) Now that explains everything. Thx. Have you tried to fix it with rebrickable?

    UCS Rey's Speeder

    Great design. I love all the roundness of it. I was naturally comparing it to dmarkng's one. Of course it's just my opinion, but yours is no question much better. It is also very interesting, that the piece count of yours is 1541; dmarkng's over 5500 whilst they seem to be pretty the same size. Anyways - I would be very happy to have it in my collection. Waiting for the instructions! Can you estimate the cost of the bricks necessary?

    Thank you guys. Yes, I keep on working on SW projects. One of them (around 1100-1200 pieces) should be ready in about a month.

    [WIP] [MOC] A/SF-01 B-Wing Starfighter

    So far looking very good. My favorite style - sleek and smooth. I don't mind studs - they are the essence of Lego but hiding them where possible is a good direction. Of course not by all means and of course having in mind, that there are places where they are just the best way of detailing. Can't wait to see the finished model. PS. What is this blaster doing in pilots hand? Isn't he supposed to be piloting the bloody ship? :D

    SB00301 B-PROJECT (MOC Resistance Bomber UCS)

    Looks stunning. I didn't like this ship at all (being disappointed with TLJ in general) but seeing this incarnation in LEGO makes me change my mind. Who knows, perhaps I would build this one sometime. Absolutely impressing. Congrats!

    AT-hauler 75219 mod

    Here is my take. it's pretty simple - I was just having fun adding details and filling gaps so that the model looked richer. I wasn't even checking the source material, so this mod is more my idea on how it could look than how it appears in the movie. Nevertheless I assume it looks much better now. Sorry for the poor quality of the pics - I just took them directly from my Lego shelves. I have a plan to design a UCS style MOC of this vessel but have to finish two other projects at the moment. I guess I'll start it in the second part of the year.

    Nothing special: just an ordinary shadeless tent + tripod + old Sony compact WX300 camera

    What do you mean by setup?

    [MOC] TIE Bomber

    It’s a tight fit but yes. These are real bricks and there is just a cocpit space for the pilot. I was focused on stability and shaping.

    [MOC] TIE Interceptor

    After learning some basic skills on modifying First Order TIE Fighter and designing Imperial TIE Fighter based on official LEGO sets, moving on to TIE Interceptor was an obvious and natural choice. I really like the ship. It’s shapes are way more interesting than the standard fighters, yet the Interceptor is stylish and what is even more important for me - 100% classic. Basically all I had to do was to create it’s panels. My first decision was to abandon the use of locking hinges because the angles of the upper and lower parts of the panels are significantly and visibly bigger then 45 degrees and my priority was to get the best proportions. I ended up with this solution and I’m satisfied with it. The angles are just right and the upper and lower parts are locked securely in position. Even though it is a display piece, the model is solid and swooshable. I’ve also managed to include lots of important details. I am aware there are imperfections mostly regarding details but I think I got it just right as for minifig scale and classic build which matches well official LEGO sets. The piece count is 774 + 50 for the stand. More pics on my flickr account here. If you like it, you may find pdf step-by-step instructions on rebrickable.

    [MOC] TIE Interceptor

    Thx. Strength is indeed my priority even though I accept compromises that LEGO would probably not in production sets. Than go proportions and last but not least details. Of course I don't mind using my idea of corner-cut 1x2 slopes for shaping the ball in your mod. I would rather call it inspiring than copying. And in fact you're not the only one who was inspired. That just makes me feel satisfied :) This mod of yours looks much better than the original set, which in my opinion is quite disappointing. I can't resist the feeling LEGO designers put greater effort in using some not ordinary pieces than properly shaping the model. Too bad for the model.

    Thx. 774 pieces for the model + 50 for the stand.

    yep - finding the right connection method for the panels was the most challenging part of this design. go for it :)

    [MOC / MOD] [Instructions] Imperial TIE Fighter

    Thx! I've just added link to the model in the first post.
  18. Thank you! Actually I've just finished LDD designing of a true MOC of this spectacular vessel. The size is not much bigger, yet the proportions and detailing are at a completely different level. It is 2500 pieces, so it fits well within UCS standards. I think I'll be ready to present it in January. Stay tuned :)
  19. It was about a year ago and it was my very first, long (3 waves of bricklink orders) and enjoyable try on building something big and different than official Lego set. I started with the idea of just fixing the "wings problem" and replacing all light blueish gray pieces for mostly black ones. The inspiration for the construction for that came from Rebel Builder's technic hinges technique (credits!). When I was done I realized it is so majestic, it really deserves to be in black. And there it is... :) I made lots of different modifications both in wings and fuseloge. They are mostly not visible but very important to make it sturdy enough not to come apart during play with the wings position. And I was happy to manage the goal. What I was really proud of were the guides for the wings that prevent them from wobbling in any position or direction. The very front part with the mean red windows is designed as in Jang's version of this MOD (BIG Up Jang!). I do not know if I made it the same way as he did, but the shape is, as far as i recognize, the same and in my opinion absolutely perfect. I would really recommend this MOD to everyone, because the end result is much more than pleasing. Of course if you do not own 75104 and want to built the black beast, don't buy official Lego set, because you would replace most of parts.

  20. Hi there. I've just finished over 700 pieces project in step design. I try to generate instructions but unfortunately I can not do it. I hit the button "(Re) Generate from steps" but nothing happens :/ . When importing a new model from lxd file everything works just fine. Any ideas about the reason?
  21. It is my second try at creating a model the way Lego does but at the same time being as sleek and faithful to original as possible. It is not a 100% MOC, because it incorporates some basic structure techniques of 75101 mixed with 75211. 759 pieces plus 56 for a display stand.

    [MOC / MOD] Imperial TIE Fighter

    It was designed in LDD first. Originally I planed to buy 75211 but after counting pieces I could have used, it appeared there is absolutely no point. Buying original set + needed elements would be much more expensive than just buying parts I needed on BL. If you want original set anyway buy 75211 but for instance the panels build resembles more 75101 (there is critical difference in connection_to_fuselage part of the build).

    [MOC / MOD] Imperial TIE Fighter

    It is 22 studs wide on these photographs but I have narrowed it to 20 as in official sets. Proportions are much better when it's 20. 100% agree. This latest TIE Fighter looks like they just wanted to use strange techniques instead of designing a nice model. THANKS EVERYBODY for your positive feedback. As I've written above - I've narrowed it to 20 studs and done some minor tweaks as well. Brick count is 732 at the moment and the LDD file is ready. I will be putting it on Rebrickable in couple of weeks.
  24. Happy you like it! And once again: I've done lots by myself but credits go also to Rebel Builder and Jang.

    [MOC / MOD] Imperial TIE Fighter

    Now that is a compliment. Credits for Jerac. That is exactly what I meant writing "the way Lego does". It is indeed as stable as last Lego sets. Thx for appreciation. Yes. I have designed it in LDD. Still have to tweak it just a little bit, but there is a plan I put it (also divided into main parts) together with BL xml file on bricklink for couple of euros. I want to dig into it soon. I am totally fresh in these matters at the moment.
