  1. No worries, if you have any other questions on the parts used, let me know
  2. I built my speeder exactly as stocky13's instructions on reddit, then I changed things bit by bit over the next 2 weeks. The design of the engine core with the 4 reddish brown triangular plates, and how the 2 air sccops are attached remained mostly the same. I removed a plate from his design so the spinner of the enigne lines up with the thrust cone at the back, when that was done, I was able to move the 3x3 wedges closer. The seat was simplied to an arm up plate and a 2x2 hinge plate, with a 1x2 plate for support, sitting on the inverted 1x2 bracket. The air scoop i wanted to keep to 2 plates thick, a 1x8 plate connects via 2 studs onto the hinge plate wihat finger, the second 1x8 is offset by 2 studs for the hinge arms. I used a 2x2 stud plate instead of all 1x2 stud plates to reduce the amount of gaps on the scoop and the grille pieces are not loose. I tried a lot of combinations to hide the hinge connections and not look bulky, I ended up using 2540 plate with bar handle open ends. Engine nacelle is connected by a 32073 axle 5 onto the inverted bracket, it uses one 2x2 round pate, one 2x2 round tile, two 98585, one 73111, one connector axle 2L, one bar with light cover. The thrust cone is a 2x2x2 cone with a vertical swirl round plate. The nozzle is stocky13's design. The rest are mainly superficial changes on how to decorate the 4 sides of the engine. I even used 2 projectile launcher 15301c01 for the base. Stocky13's design of inverted for half of the engine core allowed me to add 2 centreline pieces on the cowling.
  3. cheers, thank you thank you, ah, I have seen quite of few mocs on aliexpress, where the designers don't get credit
  4. I started off with building up the Cobb Vanth speeder using pieces of the 75299 set, based on the guide from reddit user stocky13, very smart use of inverted pieces to create the core of the speeder. The new Round 3 x 3 x 2 with Recessed Center and Axle Hole makes a great engine intake with the Bar with light cover.

    [Review] 75302 Imperial Shuttle

    Thank you for the review, I will pick up this set as I don’t have the 2015 play set, and don’t want to pay the high price for it. With Lego’s price hikes, even their kids sets are getting expensive.
  7. I have no problems with the gun sitting on the plate with bar arm up in the original Lego design. When I moved the plate to the centreline, I removed the tripod base off the E-Web, so I can fit the 2 standing stormtroopers. Interested to see how you attached them?
  8. The 75288 is a great set to start off with, I made some small modifications to have 6 snowtroopers sitting down on sand blue chairs, 2 stormtroopers standing, 1 scout trooper sitting on the speeder bike. I moved the E-Web heavy repeater blaster storage to the centreline, removed some sloped pieces to free up space. The standing 2 stormtroopers need to stand on a 2 x 2 Plate so the side panels can close properly. 72588 Mod by R Y, on Flickr 75288 Mod1 by R Y, on Flickr 75288 Mod2 by R Y, on Flickr 75288 Mod3 by R Y, on Flickr 75288 Mod4 by R Y, on Flickr

    Slave I Retrospective and UCS Comparison

    What a great topic! With Boba back on Mando Season 2, I finally built Slave 1 – 20th Anniversary Edition 75243 that I got on sale last year, to go with the Razor Crest, curiously to know what Mando gets as the replacement to Razor Crest. Very keen to see your comparison 75243 to the others if you have the time to write it up and post it here.
  10. thank you, wow, that is indeed an old piece, I didn't even know it existed, it's great as it slopes on both sides. I will keep it in mind when I do my next bricklink order.
  11. thank you for the feedback, I now see you are referring to the hull is too long, which won't change if I extend the masts.

    [MOC] 21322 + 31109 = ?

    This is very nice, I like how you included a courtyard.
  13. Back in September, as I was posting my version 3 and 4 of the Pirate Ship Mod on social media, Graham Hancock reached out to me from the awesome monthly LEGO magazine, Blocks (www.blocksmag.com). Graham asked if they can feature this build in the magazine, to be honest I was stocked! Initially I thought it was going to be a picture of my MOD with a reference, a few weeks after doing an email Q&A, Graham told me my answers and pics will be featured on Issue 73. I was flattered for the recognition and really pleased with how well Graham put together this 2-page feature. Big thanks to Graham for reaching out to me! MOD article from Blocks Magazine by R Y, on Flickr In the meantime, I have seen other great MODs for the 31109 from fellow members of LEGO Pirates groups, I decided to progress my build to version 5, a larger topsail with a main topgallant sail on a taller main mast. @SteamSewnEmpire @Verodin @Corydoras The topsail was heightened by 2 studs and widened by 4 studs, so there are 5 pieces of white curved panels at the bottom of the sail. Ideally, I needed 2 pieces of white plate 2 x 16, but only 1 was available, so I substituted that with 3 shorter plates. The side edges of the sail were completed by using white wedge plates 4 x 2. The skull and crossbones moved down the sail by 1 stud. The main topsail yard was moved upwards to accommodate the larger sail. I used the same technique to connect the topgallant yard as LEGO did for the topsail yards. 3 white curved panels were used for the topgallant sail. I simplified how the spanker yard is attached to the mizzen mast, by using only a pin connector plate and a hinge plate. The main mast started to sag with the extra weight of the plates, I had to rest the topsail on the mainsail yard to balance out the mast. I now appreciate why LEGO didn’t include bigger sails in the original build, they are just too heavy for standard technic pieces.

  14. It’s a very small ship next to the barracuda bay.

    [MOC] The treasure is at the bottom

    It’s a beautiful design, love how the waterline forms a platform above the seabed filled with fun ideas.
