  1. And here is my latest MOC, a Gozanti-class cruiser modified for deep-space exploration of the fringes of the known Galaxy. (/U version) Gozanti in space by Veynom, on Flickr First, a quick introduction to this Gozanti spaceship. It appear briefly in the prequels and can be more extensively seen inside the Star Wars Rebels anime series. I've chosen to built the latest from SW Rebels. The most visible difference is around the wings and the reactors but also regarding the color scheme based on 2 shades of greys. However, and let's be blunt, whatever the subversion, this ship is plain ugly and by far not the most elegant from the Star Wars universe, except maybe for those (a bit like me) who consider that because it is ugly then it must be an attractive ship. TLC has already released a set about this hip under reference 75106: But, without any second thought, we may agree that this is not their best rendering of a Star Wars ship. In short, it is just ugly and the only few sections where it could have been sleek have been slaughtered by an horrible greebling. Thereofre and because it was so ugly, I decided to make a nicer less ugly version of it. The main idea was to make a model more or less 3 to 4 times bigger and thus multiplying all dimensions of the 75106 by a factor of around 1.5. The final result is this model: Gozanti/U-class Cruiser by Veynom, on Flickr A small ship of 109 studs long (89 studs with the probe). As I built it during the month of September, I decided to add a forward probe in order to reach the mythical lgenth of 100 stuffs and participate to the SHIPtember contest. It results in a version which is a bit less canon but still probable within the Star Wars expanded universe. The resulting asymmetric forward body helps in breaking the otherwise monotonous aspect of the Gozanti without crippling the ship with excessive greebling. I could have also easily added the 11 missing studs to reach the 100-stud's length but as I worked without any detailed schematics (and online pictures are often contradicting each others). And in the end, basta, you will see many Lego Gozanti without a probe but mine is unique. Gozanti nose by Veynom, on Flickr I have integrated the playability features from the original set, except the shooters and springloaders that I despise in an very imperial way. Gozanti - Zoom on the central engine section by Veynom, on Flickr When you turn the black section of the central engine, both turrets will rotate. Absolutely useless but quite fun during a fair. The TIEs can be launched exactly like in the original set. I should make larger TIEs as well. There are 7 opening panels of all kinds: cockpit, forward port side, lateral sides (port & starboard), forward roof, main body and Ackbar hatch. A friend of mine felt quite inspired by my model and created several renderings. All of these are pure digital rendering and my original MOC is indeed grey. Those pictures are just for the sake of having fun.

  2. Very nice design. Original and so YT-esque at the same time.
  3. Great design, excellent built, nice colors, and the containers add-on is simply fantastic. Congrats for this MOC 100% SW Expanded Universe.
  4. While preparing the next exhibition, I am building some small modules to place along my Star Wars 12V train layout. Those modules will be integrated into larger layouts. So first, find a couple of small Twin Laser Turrets, that are very effective against flying speeders or fighters. Twin Laser Turrets by Veynom, on Flickr Turrets can rotate and laser can elevate. Part of the design is directly inspired from one of the recent battle packs. Twin Laser Turrets by Veynom, on Flickr Next comes a watchtower made in collaboration with my 11-year son. He had the original idea and first design. I mainly added some details and industrialized the built so that we could build 2 of them. The Watchtower by Veynom, on Flickr Rear view with the ladder: The Watchtower by Veynom, on Flickr Tower top with mounted blaster and light projector. Watching the area by Veynom, on Flickr Those modules are easy to duplicate, relocate and provide a nice immersive feeling to large layout. Comments welcome.
  5. [MOC][LDD INSTRUCTIONS] TIE Reaper

    Thank you for sharing your instructions. I may Base my own version out of your model. Keep on building!
  6. And here comes my latest MOC: the hybrid crossing between a STar Wars Y-Wing and a Star Trek USS Enterprise. Hybrid Bomber Wing by Veynom, on Flickr I based my model out of the Lego 75172 Y-Wing set and then started really heavily modifying everything. A new prototype is ready by Veynom, on Flickr The resulting model is very sturdy, fully swosshable, and not-so-ugly-kind-of, at least if you like flying junk ships. Preparing the new Wing bomber by Veynom, on Flickr Loading the bombs by Veynom, on Flickr As play features, I kept the bombing compartment, the rotating gun, the astromech slot, and the opening cockpit. The colors have moved from yellow to black, LBG, DBG, and white. A darker scheme in the end. Good job, Admiral! by Veynom, on Flickr It looks like the rebel admirals are relatively satisfied with the resulting hybrid bomber. I have been told it looks a bit like the Firefly Serenity, which I did not know before. I'm still looking for a valid name for that ship. One of the proposals on the table would be a Goose-Wing as it has a duck look. Comments welcome.
  7. [MOC] Medical Corps

    Thank you. The shuttle is a MOD from the Phantom 2. In a future picture, I will display them both. Thanks. :) This is indeed how I envision the notion of "expanded universe" with Star Wars. Thank you so much for this very nice post. To be 100% honest, the medical logo already existed within the Star Wars universe. I merely included it in my custom clones and generalized the use of the logo on the vehicles, like we can see on existing military units.

    Fantastic work, thanks for sharing it.
  9. [MOC] Medical Corps

    Medical Corps by Veynom, on Flickr The Medical Corps is a military unit providing medical services too all army personnel, in war and peace. The Medical corps services were formed during the Clone Wars and incorporated to the Grand Army of the Republic. The decision to create such unit was taken by the Senate of the Republic as the war started to prolongate and to expand onto a growing number of planets through the Galaxy. A majority of senators acted that then that it would be less expensive and faster to attempt “fixing battle-damaged clones” than growing more. However, and still for budgetary reasons, the future Medical Corps would be granted only second-grade equipment: modified outdated ships and speeders, old droids and equipment… Still, the Medical Corps was voted in and assigned with the task of identifying, evacuating, healing clones wounded on the various battlefields before sending them back to active duty. With the rise of the Empire, the Medical Corps was simply renamed into Imperial Medical Corps. Equipment were barely upgraded on a strict necessity basis and the overall budget did not really increase. Classified documents from the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order (COMPNOR) later revealed that showing wounded troops and casualties had to be considered as negative propaganda that could only serve any rebellion movement. Therefore appearance, size, and image of the medical care activities should keep a low-visibility profile. Armor and Gear Medical Platoon by Veynom, on Flickr Medical Corps members were first clones and as such had standard clone armors retrieved from the Grand Army surplus. Only a specific medical marking pattern based on dark red was applied to distinguish them from regular combat units. Because of the budget restrictions, not all armors were similar across the unit. HowTo: Helmets are from Clone Army customs. All minifig torsos, arms, legs and accessories have custom decals (water transfer). 614-AvA Speeder Bike Medic-Variant 614-AvA Speeder Bike Medic-Variant by Veynom, on Flickr Several types of speeder bikes, including 614-AvA types, were used by the Medical Corps after an adequate painting job was performed to add the medical logo and standardize markings. Several container crates were also generously lent to the Medical Corps. Rumours from the field report that often, speeders, crates, and other equipment were simply recycled from various battlefields and repaired for active duty inside the Medical Corps HowTo: The speeder bike is a MOD from the 75090 set while the crate is a recolouring of the 75141 crate. The crate can be attached to the speeder. The medical logo is a custom decal (water transfer) Medivac Platoon in action by Veynom, on Flickr QH-6 LAVr Medilance QH-6 LAVr Medilance by Veynom, on Flickr The LAVr QH-6 chariot is a multi-functional speeder universally exploited by various ground forces as a light transport vehicle. The Medilance variant has been adapted to medical care and can carry one stretcher. QH-6 LAVr Medilance by Veynom, on Flickr HowTo: MOC with custom decals inspired by the old LL-924 design. The root can be opened to add or remove the pilot. Several accessories can be moved inside to simulate medical activities. The stretcher easily slide in and out. Medivac Speeders by Veynom, on Flickr Sheathipede-class Medivac Shuttle Sheathipede-class Medivac Shuttle by Veynom, on Flickr Several old separatist Sheathipede shuttles were retrofitted into medivac shuttles. These could carry up to two wounded troopers on stretchers, a droid (often a EG-6 Power droid to power medical devices), and the pilot. Medivac Sheathipede back by Veynom, on Flickr Medivac Sheathipede top by Veynom, on Flickr HowTo: MOD based on the 75170 Phantom set. 8 studs longer, with custom decals (water transfer), additional details and greeble, detailed interior and place for a custom power droid. Medical Corps by Veynom, on Flickr All vehicles have playable features (opening compartments, rotating devices…). They are all highly swooshable and quite sturdy. So, what is your favourite element of this Medical Corps ? · The custom medic minifigs · The Speeder bike · The Medilance speeder · The Sheatipede Medivac shuttle · Gonky, the power droid I’m now considering building a capital ship for the Medical Corps. Maybe a Pelta-class or something more exotic. Ideas welcome …. Size matters not. Comments, remarks and constructive criticisms are most welcome.
  10. [MOC] Eadu Turbo Laser

    Very nice turret. I'm a big fan myself of that kind of MOC. Your ladder and subtle greebling is neat. Regarding the muzzle, maybe try adding 4 2x1 round bricks ?
  11. [MOC] [LDD] Star Wars Rebels Interdictor Class Cruiser

    Nice work. This has been one of my favorite ships since quite over a decade. Will you share the ldd once completed? I could attend a built at it. Regarding greebling, I suggest you not to over-greeble. The Armada version is a bit too much when compared to Rebels or Legends materials. Keep on the nice MOCs !
  12. [MOD] Rebels Phantom II Shuttle Ugrade

    Nice enhancements to the shuttle. I will soon post something similar. Good job.
  13. [MOC] In the meantime, on Scarif...

    I can tell you that even when you have a large stock of parts, it is not easy to reproduce the orange crates, mainly because of the modified plates. Quite a rare element. I had more fun inventing the bombs (on the left, with the orange 1x1 tiles). Common parts, easy creation. I will post additional pictures of the interior very soon.
  14. [MOC] In the meantime, on Scarif...

    Absolutely. Recolouring it and adding a couple of details. Yes. I also extended the surface, to break the recognizable shape and tiled it for consistency. Thank you all for the very nice comments.
  15. [MOC] In the meantime, on Scarif...

    Thank you. But actually, this is a 32x32 plate. :)
