    [MOC] TIE-Lambda - new MKII version

    Thank you all for the nice comment, and special thanks to @BEAVeR for the always detailed, positive, and constructive feedback. I will be honest about the cones used for the shield generators: I did not do it on purpose. Instead, I used the few remaining cones I had left. The alternative would have been old grey 4x4x2 cones but then it would not fix perfectly with the wing pylons. Similarly, I had only 1 LGB cone left in my stock and I used it for the wing connection. Then I used two 4x2x3 half cone panels in DBG. Maybe I should apply some stickers to improve the texture a bit. However, I purposely used the the 1x2 plates with handle ´╗┐on the central wing base to exactly fill in the gap. My first idea was to use a 1x2 plate with a cheese slope on the side to give a more angular effect, but I have not such a part in LBG. That's what I slapped plates with handles. You are absolutely right about the ugly LBG Technic connectors. Unfortunately, as I work with real bricks and my stock is not infinite, I had only 1 black connector left. Hiding them with panels ? Maybe, but it would create thickness. I will work a bit more on the top hatch and the wing rear plate to improve that and come back to yo with a 1.1 version in the coming days.
  3. Note: this post has been edited to become a full story on its own, following some great feedback from BEAVeR. TIE-Lambda MKII by Veynom, on Flickr The TIE Lambda was a design from Sienar to cut costs, yet provide a vessel of similar quality to the standard TIE Fighter. It came about after the death of Emperor Palpatine at the Battle of Endor and the Empire was in disorder. Imperial Warlords through out the galaxy joined forces and created the NEO Empire. With this new beginning, it was decided to create new more powerful fighters to reek havoc on the New Republic forces, the Lambda was the first to go into production, intended to replace the TIE Fighter, it has a stronger hull and is faster than it's predecessor. The Cockpit or pilot's compartment is fitted with flight computers, communications, and life support. Either side of the cockpit from first glance still have the wing braces from the original TIE designs, but these in fact are shield generators. With a single wing, it is a maneuverable and tough variant of the TIE, but the design is reported to be a little uncontrollable within an atmosphere. Weaponry for the Lambda consists of two chin laser cannons. The first prototypes were delivered by Sienar and went through a thorough testing and approval programs under authority of Imperial Regulator BEAVeR. TIE-Lambda MKI by Veynom, on Flickr TIE-Lambda MKI by Veynom, on Flickr Following BEAVeR's detailed report revealing a few design flaws, Sienar provided several updates and improvements to the TIE-Lambda resulting in the release of a Mark II version by Sienar. TIE-Lambda MKII by Veynom, on Flickr TIE-Lambda MKII by Veynom, on Flickr The MKII version is now awaiting production approval from the Imperial Regulator. About this TIE-Lambda: This TIE is not canon and seems to come from the fandom universe, like the TIE-Torpedo Bomber. The 1st paragraph comes from http://galactic-voyage.com/Dark%20Side-Starfighters-TIE%20Lambda.htm. The MK2 version is storyfied based on the excellent feedback of BEAVeR. I found the missing black straight technic connector for the wings on my TS-4 Tow Speeder MOC. I could replace it with a a different type of connector. I could swap the 2 LBG technic connectors from the botto wings thanks to the Catwoman bike from my son. I did not hesitate for long. The MKI cockpit was originally based on the cockpit of the officiel TIE-Fighter 75211 set. I had created the new wing and modified the ball cockpit to fix the new wing. However the MKII version is heavily modified with maybe only 20% of the original design. The resulting model is relatively sturdy with a limitation on the vertical axis where a single technic bar is used to link the cockpit to the wing and only friction keeps the wing attached to the cockpit when you take the TIE in your hand from the cockpit only. For the detailed list of differences, please refer to the below pictures: TIE-Lambda Version Comparison by Veynom, on Flickr I hope you enjoyed this model and the small story around it.

    Very nice little built rendering justice to a not-so-well-known Star Wars ship. Nice fleet that you are building there.

    [MOC] Geonosian smugglers

    Here is a small MIC that will be integrated into a large Star Wars layout of around 100 baseplates (32x32) planned for BrickMania Anvers on 30/11 and 01/12 this year. My section should be around 28 baseplates, inclduing the 2 I present here that were built by my son. Smuggling Geonosians by Veynom, on Flickr Given the Star Wars theme and the fact we decided to go for a desert-like landscape, my son wanted to participate by building something slightly more original than the usual Empire vs. Rebels. He therefore decided to go for some kind of smugglers that would be caught by surprise by some famous bounty hunters (Bossk & Boba Fett). He started with the cave, added details around it then upon starting the second plate and the small rock, he asked me for a battered original ship that could fit well with his mini-story. In short: "Dad, no TIE-Fighter of any kind!" Take away: Idea, landscape , minifig selection & positioning: all by my son (13y old). The supposedly flying pice of junk: all my fault. Smuggling Geonosians by Veynom, on Flickr Personally, I like very much the positioning of his minifigs. It is very dynamic and immediately helps us in understanding the situation. Smuggling Geonosians by Veynom, on Flickr The shuttle is a rebuilt of the official set, a bit longer and a bit more detailed and much more colored. Recycled Sheathipede by Veynom, on Flickr She is sturdy, swooshable, and playable with opening cockput and rear doors. Recycled Sheathipede by Veynom, on Flickr Feel free to comment, I will pass them along to my son.

    Hola Ismael, Muchas gracias por el LDD. You did a great job and I have added your name to my original post.

    [MOC LDD] Midi Nebulon-B Frigate

    Very interesting version and I think you did a good job at that scale. I would maybe have added a tiny bit of additional greebling on the front face of the read module but this is it. Good build anyway. Would you agree to share the LDD file ?

    [MOC] AT-DT: The Walking Gun

    Correct, only hips movement is possible but practically, it is useless. Unless I want to use the gun as a AA gun or from the top of a cliff to shoot at the bottom. Yes, the raised tiles are held through 1x1 brackets and the tiles are hiding the empty location due to these 1x1 brackets now being thick as a plate. Thanks for the nice words. Actually, I've used the FLAK 2cm and the FLAK vierling designs already ... I suppose the 88mm will be next, once I unleash myself on the WW2 theme ... Imperial Quad Laser Turret by Veynom, on Flickr AA Gun - Clone Wars by Veynom, on Flickr I often use the 2 above turrets on my layouts, as standalone or mounted on a vehicle. Thank you. Source accuracy is what it can be. In the movie, you mainly see this walker crashed on the ground. On the internet, I mostly found pictures of the toys. I have not a copy of the books where official pictures could be found.

    [MOC]First Order TIE-SF Heavy Bomber

    This is a very sleek, elegant, detailed and all-in-all wonderful design.
  10. And here comes my latest MOC/mashup. This is an AT-DT which is very briefly seen in Solo, a Star Wars story. Its turret immediatly made me think to a mix between a German WW2 sIG 33 and a FLAK 88. AT-DT by Veynom, on Flickr For this model, I have really mashed up existing MOCs found on the Internet, existing sets, and my own freedom. The turret is based on the excellent model from Bricksfeeder on Rebrickable. The front armored panel was modified to remove a stress issue and suppress the gaps between the front and side panels. Side panels were also adapted. The main body is taken from the set 75201: First Order AT-ST but updated (rebuilt) for balance purpose. I kept the rotating mechanism. For the legs, I first started from those from the 75201 but then I completely rebuilt them to better match the canon shape. I found a robust solution with the feet connection from set 75083 (AT-DP) allowing me to connect th enice design of Bircksfeeder's feed to my legs. Balance is maintained as long as you do not shake it too much. Rear view: a minifig can easily sit inside. AT-DT rear view by Veynom, on Flickr AT-DT by Veynom, on Flickr Regarding scale, it can be compared to a minifig and to a smaller AT-MB (Mobile Battery) AT-MB and AT-DT by Veynom, on Flickr AT-DT and AT-MB by Veynom, on Flickr Then I've asked my friend Muad'Brick to abuse of his virtual skills on my pictures and he came up with this: AT-DT - Ewoks Killer by Veynom, on Flickr And this: AT-DT Flower Power Variant by Veynom, on Flickr Ans because size does not matter, here is the microscale version (13 parts): Micro AT-DT by Veynom, on Flickr PS: ABefore you ask, no, I have no LDD of my final model but the excellent original model from Bricksfeeder is available on Rebrickable.

    [MOC] TIE Experimental M1

    Thank you. I had built the stairs for my Duck-Wing (see below) and recycled them for this picture. A new prototype is ready by Veynom, on Flickr Regarding the "big gun", this is actually a turbolaser ... much more powerful than the usual lasers. And from what I remember from playing, these flying idiocies were really fast and agile and rotating all around you and pesting you like hell.
  14. This is truly a sleek and nice DX9. Very well done.

    [MOC] TIE Experimental M1

    Thanks. Display is not so difficult as can easily add some black 1x8 slopes at the bottom and it will provides a stable support. for the wing.
