    75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017 MOD/MOC

    Not sure if this also goes here, but I just put some lights in my Falcon and I would like to share the result. There are some excellent engine mods in this thread (which probably look even better with some LEDs incorporated!) but I really preferred to keep my model original. So I got a light wire with a light blue color and put it though the hoses. Only changes needed were to replace the blue technic axle pins with regular pins so I could fit the wire through! The battery box could be easily stored in the interior. See the result:

    Thanks everyone! If you're interested in instructions - send me a personal message.
  3. Anyone in the Netherlands already received their card? I assume they're shipping them country by country as I got the Falcon on day one but no sign of the card yet. It looks really nice and my old VIP card is in need of a replacement anyway. :)

    Thanks! I'm pretty sure they're scaled rather accurately, why do you think otherwise? Thanks! :)

    Many thanks! Yes I'm looking forward to building it but first I will need to gather all the required parts.

    [MOC] AT-ST

    Hi! The AT-ST has always been a personal favorite of mine due to it's intriguing design. It's an extremely complicated model to design in LEGO, the boxy head has many very shallow angles and the thin legs need to be carefully designed to support the walker too. I've never been satisfied with any of the official LEGO versions and attempted to design my own several times already. While I was initially happy with my previous version, the steep angles on the head and relatively bulky, short legs were not accurate enough. Thus I redesigned my model again, starting completely from scratch and utilizing completely different techniques. I've spent many many incountable hours on my new model, taking inspiration from many of the AT-ST models out there at the moment and I'm pretty proud of the end result. The model has an interior and is fully posable - I hope the real brickbuild model will be able to support its own weight! Enjoy and suggestions are of course welcome!

    Maybe the sagging is also caused by the tan technic pins you're using. The black and blue versions have extra friction slots which result in a more stable/stiff connection. Especially the 1x1 round brick is now only supported by the two small circular slots on the very end of the tan pin. The tan and light grey versions without friction slots are generally only used if the pin is required to rotate freely or if they need to be disconnected frequently.

    I think you're off to a great start and the basic structure is already there. Like I've said before, just start on one end of the middle section, adding details using brackets and tiles, clips, modified plates, hoses, etc. The useful thing about greebling is that there's little large-scale planning involved and you can just work section by section. I'm not quite sure what difficulties you're having with the body as to me it seems fine?

    EB Xmas Raffle 2017 - Your ideal Christmas tree entry thread

    My ideal Christmas tree is a simple but joyful one. :)
  11. I managed to order before the site went haywire. :) It now seems to be fully functioning again and my order is showing in my account overview. Still no email confirmation though, but that usually takes several hours anyway. Now fingers crossed it's not out of stock by the time they process my order!

    [MOC] BTL-A4 Y-Wing

    I am willing to give the LDD of this model out for free, I would never profit from the work of others. I just prefer to hand out my files personally, hence people who are interested should send me a PM to obtain it. I'm sorry if you thought otherwise!

    Thanks! Yes I do, send me a PM if you're interested in it.

    Thanks! It's quite swooshable actually, but there are limitations. :)

    What can I say, it's simply an amazingly useful part. :)
