    [MOC] Porsche 911 Turbo VV

    "Built from the salvaged carcass from the 20th century, the Porsche 911 Turbo VV is, like its predecessor, one of the best racing hovercar of its category. The front of the car is built around two antigrav generators, while the back houses the powerful VV hydrogen repulsor motor, which was integrated in the old bodywork without disrupting the lines. The interior features very old accessories like the strange levers between the two seats, but also top notch controls."

    [MOC] Wasteland Explorer #911

    Years ago, I stumbled upon <a href="https://www.artstation.com/artwork/rWJO6" rel="noreferrer nofollow">Daniyar Kdyrov's work</a> and knew that one day I'd build something inspired by it. When I got the Porsche 911 set, it was clear that it was the perfect candidate for the transformation... The MOC is actually fully powered, with two motors, battery pack, working suspension and steering. But sadly, the frame isn't rigid enough for the car to drive for more than a meter... I actually built this one before the flying 911 I posted earlier. So I carefully removed the underframe, and transfered the bodywork on a new frame to build the hovercar. And then did the same thing in reverse. I decided to keep the red line that runs from the front to the rear, to tie a bit more the two builds...

  5. Set information Set Name: Road Runner & Wile E. Coyote Set Number: 40559 Number of Pieces: 205 Theme: Brickheadz - Looney Tunes Year Release: 02/2022 Prices: £17.99 / $19.99 / €19.99 (Euro prices may vary) #40599 on Brickset #40559 on Rebrickable Box and content As usual with dual Brickheadz sets, the box contains 2 numbered bags and two instructions booklets, one for each character. The front of the box shows the two models, while the back shows... exactly the same... The build I started by building Coyote. It is a simple classic brickheadz build. Nothing fancy here... I think Lego missed an opportunity here as on my copy, I replaced the 2x2 pink brick (aka the brain brick) with a printed TNT brick, which to me seems a bit more appropriate. Road Runner build is a bit more interresting. Both the body and head use two black Brick, Modified 1 x 2 x 1 2/3 with Studs on 3 Sides. The head attach to the body with a 1x1 brick with axle hole that is positionned sideway. The final models look decent, but I think Coyote's head should have been done differently as it is too "square" (even for a brickheadz) compared to the its shape in the cartoon. Conclusion Design: 5/10 - While Road Runner is ok, I think Coyote's design could have been so much better. Parts: 5/10 - The part selection is average, especially for Coyote, as Road Runner's part selection is a bit more interesting. Price: 4/10 - With a high ppp of 0,097€ the set is quite pricy. Overall: 16/30 (53%) - An average Brickheadz set, with some misdesigns.

    [Alternative build] Alpha-1 Rocket Base 920

    Please refrain from bumping old topics. Thank you.
  7. Set information Set Name: Temple of the Endless Sea Set Number: 71755 Number of Pieces: 1060 Theme: Ninjago Year Release: 06/2021 Prices: £89.99 / $99.99 / €99.99 (Euro prices may vary) #71755 on Brickset #71755 on Rebrickable Box and content The set come in a pretty large box, with the front showing all the parts of the playset. The other side of the box shows the back of all the buildings and their various play features. The box is filled with 9 numbered bags and two instruction booklets and a stickers sheet protected in a plastic wrapping. The first visual impression looking at the bags is that there is a lot of black, teal and gold in this set, which is a very good thing! The build The instructions are easy to follow, but building all the different aprts of the set may require some time. With the first bag we'll build Kai's small submarine and a small building with a clam shell. Bag 2 will start the construction of the sea serpent Wojira... ...And it's finished with bag 3. Bags 4 to 7 will guide you in building the biggest part of the temple. Glutinous laboratory and Wojira's shackles come with bag 8. And finally bag 9 gives us a part of the temple with a small prison and a spring shooter on top. Minifigures The minifigures are really nice, with detailed printings. Nya's minifigure is my prefered, with its pearl trans blue hair, a trans blue arm, and a simple but quite nice front and back printing that extends on the legs. On the good side we have Scuba Kai, NRG Nya and prince Benthomaar. A focus on the new scuba parts for our ninjas. On the evil side we have Glutinous, prince Kalmaar and two Maaray guards (and a manta ray) The completed set When assembled, the set looks really nice. Each part of the temple can stand on it's own or be attached to another part with clips. Both sides of the buildings are detailled. I'm justs a bit disappointed by Wojira, as I think it could have bee a bit beefier (especially on the neck area). Conclusion Design: 8/10 - Some very nice builds here, with a vibrant color scheme. Parts: 8/10 - The part selection is rather good (if you like black, gold and teal) with some unique or rare parts. Playability: 9/10 - There's a lot to do with this set and all the different buildings. I like that a small submarine is included. Minifigures: 8/10 - The minifigs selection is great, even if only prince Benthomaar and Glutinous' body are exclusive to this set. Price: 5/10 - With a ppp of 0,095€ and 7 minifigures, the set is a bit overpriced. Overall: 40/50 (80%) - A very nice playset, with nice minifigures. The set's color scheme is really nice even jsut as a display item..

    [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.
  13. 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.

    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).
