    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    Jerac, I'm absolutely intrigued by your gearbox solution. Do you see any obvious flaws in trying to adapt it for T-70's split S-foil design? I have Inthert's T-70 sitting just across the room and love it to bits except everything about the S-foils is ridiculously brittle. Your solution, on the other hand, looks remarkably solid.

    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    Whoa, so the solution to your riddle was an X-Wing! I'll probably build this one in the near future! :) It's a beautiful build, well done! And I truly appreciate the look at your frustration behind the scenes since I'm feeling a lot of that myself as a beginner to Lego design. Just a quick Q: why did you reject a brick-built cockpit so early on?
  3. The other consideration is that ball joints can only carry so much weight. Perhaps click joints ( might work better? I haven't done the comparison.
  4. Nice work! :) I'm excited for this. How does it fare on scale – is it "true" minifig scale or slightly smaller?
  5. Ah, that's a good one! I'd be interested in building that. Looks roughly in scale, too; is it? I'm guessing wings don't move (and that they shouldn't).

    Kinda OT, but I like the Imperial LAAT/i in the background and would love to see more of it! :)

    Updating Your Minifigs

    I'm starting to run out of shelf space for models and will have to redirect my Lego obsession towards minifigures for a bit. :D I'm really enjoying current Star Wars comics and would like to represent its original and already iconic characters. A couple of very nice Doctor Aphras have made the rounds but no Inspectors Magna Tolvan so far. Someone's mocked up decals of her face and body which could be readily printed but necessary equipment's prohibitively expensive for a private collector. Is anyone aware of a company that would offer small-batch bespoke minifig prints? Alternatively, this thread's clearly full of people with more money & enthusiasm than sense; do people reckon it'd make sense to band together and approach, say, Firestar with specific requests and pledges to buy 10+ of the desired minifig? Essentially a Kickstarter for minifig designs? At this point I don't even know if that'd be economically sensible for them; would it?
  8. Here you go! :) They've been gracing my shelves for several weeks now and they're lovely little builds!
  9. I ordered enough parts to build two – one for each of my patrol stormtroopers. Looking forward to assembling them! :)

    TIE Fighter & TIE Interceptor

    That's a solid riddle Jerac! :D Sounds a bit like an X-Wing but I think it'll turn out to be something else. Good luck fixing the wobble!! :) JarJarBonks: Agreed, the TIE/D makes sense and most of the design is directly adaptable from the Interceptor. Although perhaps the pilot bubble would have to be substantially rebuilt since the two horizontal pylons keep the model together to a large extent.

    TIE Fighter & TIE Interceptor

    Jerac, any teases for upcoming designs? :) BTW just built your TIE Bomber; the sleek design is absolutely stunning and comes at no sacrifice to swooshability, which is much appreciated!

    Loving your Aphra!! :)
  13. I'm trying to figure out if the new triangular tiles on Brickheadz Boba Fett's helmet are red or dark red. What do people think?

    First Order TIE Fighters

    I'm currently assembling the TIE/fo and trying to figure out why you exchanged the bottom dish from the TIE/ln and TIE/in (and later reused for the TIE/x1). My original hypothesis was that this was forced by a lack of a black 6x6 dish but that's not it. Was it the vertical engine layout? Edit: Just noticed the double post – sorry. :(
  15. No Elthree though. :( Odd since we got K2 in the first wave of Rogue One sets.
