    easy words but not keeping general Lego brick physics in mind - gravity is always right.
  3. On rebrickable you can upload csv files to a custom list and execute mass changes, e.g. color swaps. Not sure which items you need to replace but certainly better than in a csv file

    The Tribute to The Razor Crest - Released!

    I guess you are not a hard Friends or City Jungle collector.... Same for me - I found out I didn't have almost any BLO parts when I searched for the parts for the Hammerhead Moc.

    this is now leading to the statement R.I.P. - rest in pieces...

    good news arrived from newelementary https://twitter.com/NewElementary/status/1562055078730944512
  8. just make a proper, relaible stand with 18 pieces...instead of the 1*1 bricks take plates and a 3*3 plate with 1*1 tiles as a base... Okay- that's more supporting the importance of being a superweapon than the ship Or you can add a crushed sun instead like the famous Alderaan set

    Need help with Tiplar purist custom

    I googled the custom figure which is pretty nice but sold out...sorry to hear that DHL is not delivering to Mos Eisley yet ... What about 4 times "Tile, Modified 1 x 2 Grille with Bottom Groove / Lip" - https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=2412b#T=C mounted on a "Brick, Modified 1 x 1 with Studs on 4 Sides" - https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=4733#T=C ? Even mounted on a "Bar 1L with Angled Hollow Stud" https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=65578#T=C ? So you can get an angle for the "hair"? Or Footgear flipper https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=2599a#T=C or a crown? https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=39262#T=C
  10. Here you can find a nice article in german with some pictures from Torsten Plagborg, designer of the first 9V trains 30 years back. https://www.promobricks.de/lego-9v-30-jahre-4558-metroliner-review/114271/ I hope you enjoy it!

    maybe remnants from rendering - should not be related to the real brick itself

    yes, there are discrepancies - I had "some" pieces left after finishing it. Please let me know if you need the parts list

    [MOC] "Gold 5" BTL-A4 Y-Wing

    sure, look at Jerac's Razor Crest - swooshable without almost any technic bricks. When you build it in real life and it is sturdy enough you can check what you can take away again without risking stability

    [MOC] "Gold 5" BTL-A4 Y-Wing

    When you compare your MOC with the offical set 75181 you can see that their connection without greebling is 5 plates high with technic bricks in the middle and additional support below by plates with pin hole 2444. As your engine would have a similar weight two plates for the connection will not be enough. Maybe 4 plates can make it but I would say if you use liftarms or better technic bricks you can attach the greebling directly to the technic bricks.

    [MOC] "Gold 5" BTL-A4 Y-Wing

    nice piece of work - well done greeblings and very good overall design! I simply would try either https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=48183#T=C or https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=43719#T=C to replace the yellow wedge plates. On such bigger models built in real life such small deviations are neglectable and will by anyway only noticed by some true nerds if at all. The connection from body to the engines look also a little thicker on the pictures. For stability reasons it would be good to incorporate maybe two liftarms in each connecting part?

    please try to replace it with 70904 in the xml https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=70904&name=Rubber Belt Large (Round Cross Section) - Approx. 4 x 4&category=[Rubber Band & Belt]#T=S&O={"iconly":0}

    yes, it was this one. We also had the discussion here around page 200 - don't know exactly where

    Now 930 new parts are listed on brickset - so bad they cannot be ordered yet...
  20. here an (actually not such) fast build for the lattice -and the bottle is full -1,5kg. The diagonal liftarms need to be in both directions. I connected the orange liftarms with perpendicular liftarms https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=71710. The diagonal liftarms I did with nine long liftarms put on a triangle with 5-5-7, better would be 3-4-5 of course, than you have also a little more space, too. My first post with pictures - I hope that works
  21. here my two cents to the stand which looks a little adventurous . I would propose a "T" and the vertical part in the center of the gravity. For the vertical stand you need to attach some diagonal liftarms similar to a lattice crane. Also the horizontal part should have a double layer of liftarms with diagonal enforcement. Also you can add some some liftarms to the base to gain a bigger support plate. If that works it will look more elegant than the part supporting the cockpit

    (MOC) IG-88 Battle Mech

    so cool - perfect presentation
  23. so today the instructions were first reduced by 30% and then fully cancelled on rebrickable. I bought some time ago the Tie Bomber instructions which I checked now again. I did not build it yet and will most probably also not, some points didn't please me. From the instruction point of view there was one big repeating topic - putting technic bricks with pins on plates and then adding other technic bricks. Of course this does not work and you have to find your way. Such things (and others) also happened in early instructions from other moccers. This was clearly showing to me three points: - not much experience with building with technic bricks (I would not call it building Lego Technic, this would be a little different) - the instructions were not tested and approved - and it was proving that the Mocopolis has more experiences with constructing buildings and let's say city dioramas It is a pity for you that you had such a bad example of bigger Mocs. Maybe you would have more luck with Thomins Tie Defender which is in a smaller scale I assume.

    you can simply change the url: e.g. from de-de to en-us or en-gb -that works very well ...

    one point is that the omission of the new parts will help to decrease the current delay of 6 weeks. Of course we don't know how much new parts are preferred against others but at least for many people here on EB these are preferred. And at some time they want to sell their new parts again - they don't want to keep them. Anyway also older parts are not visible currently, e.g. 65617 has no parts in other colors available, not only the new one i reddish brown
