    Does anyone have a link to a stud.io file for the main build of 10497? Thank you.

    Good observation! I checked mine and one of my tiles has the red square maybe 2mm too low.

    I did bag 2 today. Thanks for that explanation. Indeed it works.
  7. In the reviews where there were closeups of the swashplate operation I could see that the swashplate has limited front/back motion, with a bias towards front, so I'm not surprised you have this.

    Me too. I'm hoping to work on such a MOC.

    Many people have complained about the scratched up canopies. I haven't opened that bag yet, but I can see the scratches. I'm sure it wouldn't have cost more than a dollar to pack the canopies in their own bags.

    There are a bunch of blue 3x friction pins used to hold the studded technic beams that I think are redundant. Perhaps they give additional strength. I don't get the use of the white 2x axle pins. It's really not a big deal and I enjoyed the build. The yellow arrows indicate parts that I think are odd choices given how the joined parts are secured in place later on.

    @Warbinator I'm not talking about the shape of the frame, but rather the use of the technic pins to hold it together. Some of the pins are needed for the gear and the ramp, but not all of them. I peeked ahead to bag two and I see that the beams are now held by the plates, which is how I would have done it to begin with. Anyhoo, a fun build so far.

    I'm going to build it one bag per day in the evenings. I did bag 1 today.

    Woohoo! I can load the parts list into BrickLink stud.io now directly from the official sets dialog. I get import fails for the following parts 973p90new2 (Torso Space Classic Moon Logo High on Torso Pattern, Inside with Ribs (second reissue)) White x 2, Red x 2 40687 (Plate, Modified 2x 4 with Pins and Thick Reinforced Supports) Light Bluish Gray x 2 I suppose I can live with that for designing MOCs !
  14. I would love to get it, but I got the Galaxy Explorer, so I don't know if I should get a second pricey one this year.
