    [MOC] Two Vipers' Brewery

    When traveling to the blacksmith, the captain of the black falcon always stop by his old friend's Leon. The two of them were in the same unit of the royal guard, until Leon quit the army, after getting back from a too long mission patroling the western border of the realm, only to find his wife had succumbed to a disease. After some time he decided to reopen the family brewery: the Two Vipers' Brewery. My entry for BrickPirate summer challenge for which we were asked to make a medieval building with a maximum size of 32x32.

    [MOC] The Uterceptor - UCS U-Wing / Tie Interceptor ugly

    According to Wookiepedia, the size of the wing is pretty good. A Tie Interceptor is 9.5m long while the U-Wing is almost 24m, so the Intercptor wing is almost 1/2 the length of the U-Wing. I based my calculation on the "Owner's Workshop Manual" books for both Alliance and Tie Fighhter (https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Fighter-Owners-Workshop/dp/1683835271 https://www.amazon.com/Star-Wars-Starfighters-Owners-Workshop/dp/1683839366) Everyone should need a UCS ugly!

    [MOC] The Uterceptor - UCS U-Wing / Tie Interceptor ugly

    Thanks. I spent a lot of time measuring the schematics to get the sizes as close as possible to the real thing. I was not that fond of the U-Wing before working on it, and now I find it very interesting. And I always loved the Tie Interceptor!

    [MOC] The Uterceptor - UCS U-Wing / Tie Interceptor ugly

    Thanks everyone I have a thing for uglies since I was a kid Thanks, I soent way too much time on these pictures. Well it is UCS sized. It should have roughly the sale size as @StarBricks U-Wing.
  6. The Uterceptor, Zar Mioln's personnal starfighter, was built from a damaged U-Wing salvagedby the Dawn's Raiders Guild from a recent space battle opposing the Rebellion and the Empire. After being brought into the Harvester's main hangar, the U-Wing damages were assessed. The ship lost its starboard engines, wing and door, but was otherwise in good condition. Wingss and twin ion engines from Tie Interceptors were used to repair the U-Wing. The missing door was replaced by armor plates and a missile launcher pod was added. The Uterceptor is used as a command and support ship, adding firepower to salvage parties when needed. Due to its shape, it can't land anywere but on a specific dock inside the Harvester's hangar. The Uterceptor by BobDeQuatre, on Flickr The Uterceptor by BobDeQuatre, on Flickr The Uterceptor by BobDeQuatre, on Flickr Finally done... It all started as a micro build last year, and I decided to start working on it during the last lockdown. I bought books to have access to schematics of both U-Wing and Tie Interceptor and made lots of measurements to get all the shapes and angles right. Of course it's not perfect as I had to make some choices. Sometimes getting one part right was messing up another part... I also faced difficuties adding details on the inside, as the measurements of the interior didn't quite matched the space available. I also tried not to look at other UCS sized U-Wing. I just compared solutions used on a few areas. I decided not to use the UCS X-Wing canopy as its shape isn't really great for the U-Wing, and switched for a "no glass" solution that I'm not completely happy with. I also tried Light My Bricks stuff for the first time, and it was a really great experience. I'm impressed by the small size of the leds and wires. Anyway, I hope you'll like it.

    [MOC] Vigilance - Venator class-star destroyer (WIP)

    Very nice rendition of the Venator! I really like that the hangar is openable and that it holds some tiny vehicles :)

    [MOC][Instructions] UCS A/SF-01 B-Wing

    According to Rebrickable, 10227 has only 31% of the parts needed for my MOC. Using the cockpit part of the 10227 was a strong no from the start. I don't like that part, it has more drawbacks than benefits (mainly the canopy printing).

    [MOC][Instructions] UCS A/SF-01 B-Wing

    Thanks. The exact same size, as it was initialy based on the 10227.
  10. It's finally done! Last year I started to rebuild the UCS B-Wing I built years ago, trying to fix design flaws and inaccuracies, and it was a blast! I love the B-Wing, and I wanted to do it justice by trying to be as close as possible to the ILM model. I also redesigned the stand to give it a more dynamic stance, as the old one was vertical. And I also designed a small stand for a "bust" version of the B-Wing, with only the cockpit and engines blocks. I hope you'll like it, and if you're interested, the instructions are available on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-77953/BobDeQuatre/ucs-asf-01-b-wing

    [MOC] The Ancient Gate of Qarava

    I really like this build, very inspiring and inspired. Glad you could be in touch with the original creator! The only part that I don't like is the blue line at the top of the "water fall".

    [REVIEW] 41682 - Heartlake City School

    Set information Set Name: Heartlake City School Set Number: 41682 Number of Pieces: 605 Theme: Friends Year Release: 06/2021 Prices: £59.99 / $59.99 / €64.99 (Euro prices may vary) #41682 on Brickset #41682 on Rebrickable Box and content The box contains 7 numbered bags, an instructions booklet and a loose stickers sheet. For set of this size, and a stickers sheet of this size (20 stickers!), I'd prefered it to come in a thicker plastic bag. The box front shows the facade of the buildings, while the back features the inside and all the activities that can be done. The build The build is pretty straightforward, with no difficulties. With each bag, you build each individual room, starting from the bottom left to the top right : the canteen, the school hall, the drama and music classroom, the art classroom, the bathroom (the mandatory toilets are included) and the lab. Bag one contais the 3 minidolls, the bike, the basketball panel and the canteen table that can be attached next to the canteen or used as an outside table. The completed build looks really good from both sides. The facade is especially very nice, with the colonnades, the dark orange brick bricks and multitude of windows. There is a lot to do in this school, and each room is greatly detailed (with the use of lots of stickers). My favorite classroom is the drama and music one, with all its accessories and its two glow in the dark shields! The sandwiches in the canteen are also cleverly done. There is no roof over the second floor rooms, so you can easily play with the minidolls. But the second floor don't detach, so the first floor rooms are maybe less playable.. Minidolls The set comes with 3 minidolls: - Olivia - Marisa - who makes her debuts as a Friends minidoll - Julian - Only appeared in set 41448: Heartlake City Movie Theatre There are sadly no animals on the school grounds. Conclusion Design: 7/10 - A simple build but very nice looking, especially the facade Parts: 6/10 - The part selection is average, nothing too fancy in this set, excepts if you really love windows. Playability: 8/10 - With 6 different rooms and the beginning, lots of accessories, of an exterior playground, the set offers a great playability. Minidolls: 6/10 - The 3 minidolls are nice, but one more for a set of this size would have been better. And no animals.. Price: 4/10 - With a high ppp of 0,107€ and 3 minidolls, this set is overpriced. Overall: 31/50 (62%) - A nice looking set that would make a great addition to any Friends display, but the price is too high for what the set offers.
