  1. Hi there, I'm trying to build a moc, that requires a big cylinder in the center, something like this (diameter is 31 studs, length 44 studs, file): Around it will just be some light decoration, but at the front and back of the cylinder it will be closed off, and there will be more (not too light) structures attached. Since the cylinder will be the central part of the moc, it needs to be sturdy enough to support the whole model when picked up. However I can't seem to find an interior, that would allow me to get this form, and that is also very study. Has anyone got any tips how to achieve this? Best regards, Christian

    Babylon 5

    Hey, I used this as a reference: I'm not sure how precise it is (some colors are definitively off), but since it has a nice 2D view of the station, I could trace the outline in LDD/ At first I tried to replicate the Saturn V cylinder aswell, but I just couldn't get the different transistions in diameter to look acceptable. But good luck to you, I think it would look much better without the gaps in the surface.

    Babylon 5

    Thank you! The animation was done by converting the LDD/ files to 3d meshes using Mecabrick, and then animating them in AWS Sumerian. I had to split the station and the cruiser up, so I could rotate a part of it. The physical station is not able to rotate (that would be quite a challenge, considering the scale and the fact the original was never designed to be used in gravity). However the mid-section of the cruiser does rotate in the physical model.

    Babylon 5

    More Images The Babylon Project was our last, best hope for peace. A self-contained world five miles long, located in neutral territory. A place of commerce and diplomacy for a quarter of a million humans and aliens. A shining beacon in space, all alone in the night. It was the dawn of the Third Age of Mankind, the year the Great War came upon us all. This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations. The year is 2259. The name of the place is Babylon 5. About Babylon 5 Babylon 5 was a TV-series, running from 1994 to 1998. It centers around a large space station (8km long), with an epic story spanning 5 seasons. Babylon 5 is the fifth of the Babylon stations, with the first three being destroyed during construction, and the fourth vanishing when it was completed. The station was build as a place for all the races to gather and settle their differences peacefully, and is home to over 250.000 humans and aliens. The main cylinder of the station is hollow and constantly rotates, generated gravitation on the inside. The back of the station is used for industry and power generation. About the model The model is 85cm long, the cylinder is around 10cm in diameter, and its height is 28cm at its highest point. About 2200 parts are used. It took about two months to design, and another month getting the parts, building it and gradually improving it. I've also created an animation to give you a better impression: A few notes to about the video: The models of the Hyperion Cruiser and Starfuries are created by Christopher Deck of, the model of the Centauri Vorchan ship is created by ink panther at, all other models are created by me. The model of the station in the video is a modified version to allow it to rotate, the model in real life is not able to do so. Best regards, Christian

    Hello, my name is Christian

    This is my StarTrek shelf: I've used designs from, the Bricklink Gallery,, and several others I can't seem to find right now. And ofc (even if not real Lego):

    Hello, my name is Christian

    Hello there, I got back to Lego after many years when I built the Saturn V last year. After that, a colleage ask me the far-reaching question, if you could buy bricks separatly. After googling I found Bricklink, LDD and the likes, and by now I've got several shelfs full of models, and start running into problems to make more room. I'm a big fan of Sci-Fi series, so I got a lot of StarTrek models, several from BSG and Babylon 5, some (unofficial) StarWars models, as well as some individual items from films and series (Dune, 2001, Interstellar etc.). I started building models from unofficial instructions, continued with reverse engineering models from pictures, and by now I'm designing my own models from scratch. I still wish to learn how to improve the stability of bigger models tho, it's a little bit disappointing when parts of the model that look so stable in LDD just break off in real life ;) If there is any interest, I can post some pictures of the models. Best regards, Christian
