    Lego Death Star Project

    Very excited to see this come together! Already most impressive.

    @AWproductions I was mistaken! 30361c is available in tan. Pay no attention to me. And I'm glad to hear the connection is strong enough! Lego can pleasantly surprise sometimes.

    As 3d designs go, this looks great! Very impressive if you were able to keep the cost so low for such a large ship. -redacted- One comment though, the angled panels in the rear (not sure what they're actually called) have a 1-stud connection point. Not sure if that's enough to support the weight of these panels. At the very least, they'll be prone to falling off. Not a problem if it's on display and out-of-reach, but it could be annoying nonetheless. Again, as with the AT-ST, I'd highly recommend building this before distributing it so that potential buyers don't have a frustrating build experience. Also, if people can see photos of a real build, it will increase their confidence in the integrity of the design, and your sales will likely increase! Personally speaking, no matter how thoroughly I THINK I designed in 3d, there's inevitably something that needs tweaking on the actual build. Physics, although a wonderful thing, can throw a wrench into even the most well laid lego plans.

    At-St (Movie Accurate)

    The appearance looks very good, but, as others have pointed out, the ability to stand on its own is a critical component. At least it would be for me if I ever chose to build one. I honestly don't think those mixel joints are rigid enough to hold the weight of the "head". Brickvault just released instructions for their own AT-ST. Despite having a more robust mechanism here, it still has some wobble to it. You might consider trying a similar technique if you decide to build it. At timestamp 3:04 in the below video, you can see it better.

    X-Wing gearbox

    I modified mine to remove the rubber bands based loosely on Krispijn's design (pictures from his flickr below). However, it's a bit wobbly still. I believe the worm gear solution is more robust and less prone to wobble, but I don't know if the instructions for the mechanism itself have been shared. Plenty of X-wing mocs use it.

    @Darth Watto Thanks! Unfortunately, I haven't made instructions yet. Will post here when/if they get made!

    "Reverse engineering" Razor Crest MOC WIP

    @WickNole I'm happy to see more people tackling the ship at this larger scale! One can appreciate the vastly different build styles between yours, the OP's, and others. I'll admit, I'm happy to see someone utilizing the curved bricks around the engine cowling.

    This is magnificent! Keep 'em coming!

    [WIP] [MOC] Malevolence

    Glad to see you're continuing this project! Despite being a massive untertaking, do you have any plans to build it IRL if you're happy with the digital version?

    @jedi44 Here you go. Admittedly, it's not quite as polished as I remember, but c'est la vie.

    @jedi44 this is an oldie! Almost forgot entirely about these builds. Yeah, I can dig around later and find some additional views.

    @bricksmarlin Great progress photos! Looking forward to seeing consecutive updates. One small request though, would you mind putting these images in spoilers? Makes navigating the page and the screenshots much easier.

    YES! I was looking forward to seeing updates on this. Looking good!

    I was contemplating how to tackle a larger scale version, and I think I got very lucky with the pieces available at this scale. The combination of 41747/41748 and 41749/41750 allows for a very smooth bow section. To tackle a larger scale, I think the armor panels would inevitably be more blocky. The designer for the Munificent linked below did a good job in my opinion, but he had to create a stepped pattern to achieve the slope/taper at the scale. https://moc.bricklink.com/pages/moc/mocitem.page?idmocitem=7652 With that said, I've learned that few things are impossible with Lego. Raskolnikov demonstrated that smooth curves can be achieved even at larger scales with his MC80. Unfortunately, my skills aren't on that level! ...yet.

    I'm especially thankful for things like Lego during times like these because they can add a semblance of normalcy and joy to an otherwise chaotic and stressful set of circumstances.
