  1. Hello all, I’m new and it’s been a while since I last purchased a LEGO set. 

    I love airliners such as commercial ones, jets, any modern airplane really... 

    I purchased the Boeing 787 Dreamliner (10177) however, this seems to be the only set that’s actually decently sized, and not a MOC.  I’ve tried googling and all forums to see if I could find others but to no avail and MOCs of aircraft I do find, either have no instructions or very small/basic construction... so if anyone can show me the right place to find decent well made models instructions or even alternative builds ? It would be amazing,

    You’re the boss, boss. It’s your call. There’s no way someone hasn’t yet scanned sticker sheets that have the shapes you’re after. Just use that outline and make yours from scratch. It won’t be easy though, matching colours is gonna be a bitch and a half.

    If i match the decals from say the mercedes F1 car and kind of fit them to size within the sticker sheet that may work? but i dont know how good the quality is... ill give it a try... any program you'd recommend? all I have is microsoft paint

    Your best bet would be to replace as many of the gapped panels with ones that aren’t, that way any stickers you make will be large enough to have details. As to making stickers, I’m sure there’s something you could find from a quick Google search.

    I have searched everywhere, even putting in quotes between words to search for that exact phrase (lego "mclaren mercedes") nothing comes up, the DIY stickers that come up involve dipping them in some bill nye solution, I wasn't sure if there was a website or program that would allow you to pull up the stickers for specific models and allow you to edit them.... however, if they are the same size as the ferrari 1:8 model, it should be possible to measure the dimensions of the stickers I have now, and be able to replicate that back up on some program, and be able to print custom decals?

    The 787 will require a total fuselage overhaul because the livery is brickbuilt

    Wasn't sure what was available as an aftermarket / moc fit, getting back into building stuff like these after more or less 12 years. (25 now)

    In what way, I never used them. I do believe I hard some foil once though.

     

    - As for the Formula 1 Silver Champion (8458) car, how would I go about creating custom stickers that would replicate the 1999 McLaren Mercedes MP4/14 or the 2010 Mercedes MGP W01  since it seems rather close...

  5. I just picked up the Boeing 787 Dreamliner (10177-1) and the Silver Champion (8458) and was wondering how I can go about adding my own livery to each of them? or if at all possible? Such as getting custom stickers created? is there a website or program that would be helpful in creating custom stickers for these sets?
