    [MOC] DP20M Medical Frigate

    Of course, they do! With or without minifig. But nothing is planned to be carried outside of the speeder.

    [MOC] Imperial Turbolaser Battery

    @DrMuttonchops: very nice interior, full of details with an excellent choice of decorated tiles. My turbolaser is empty inside. This is a deliberate choice for 3 reasons : 1/ The inside is not accessible. Why doing anything then? I had considered an system to open the battery in 2 like old sets did but nothing was practical. 2/ Even if accessible, the inside is very narrow and does not offer much playability. 3/ My bricks are not infinite. I have a good stock of bricks but as I keep this MOC for a few years for expositions, I preferred saving bricks for interior of other MOCs that are more visible and accessible.

    [MOC] DP20M Medical Frigate

    Thank you for the nice comment. And yes, I am now considering a base of some kind. @DrMuttonchops: Wow, thank you for that galaxy of nice comments. I don't know where to start to answer you. - The towball in the wall: yes, I like it as well. It helps to secure the crate while swooshing the ship. All minifigs and accessories are therefore secured. Still the looping is not recommended as the rear panels would fall open. - I totally agree with you on the light blue bacta tank. I own the light blue bricks, just not at the same location as my DP20M. I would also add the 2 official medical droids then. But just like you, I have a crunch for Gonky, the medical droid. - The piston bars just stack on the grey tile when open. To close the panel, I simply open a bit more the panel and so the bars can be manually rotated back against the side wall. A simple move that can be performed blindfolded, even by children. - The beds in the middle section are similar in design to the ones you mention but not the same. Here, they have an extra computer in the front and they are fixed as they have not the inverted slope dish underneath. To be complete, I considered building a small place to store these beds with opening panels in the front area of the rear section but ultimately, I dropped the idea as if was adding quite some complexity in an already complex area and the panels would not fit tightly. - Greebling: well, I am not totally satisfied mainly because the rear section is mainly studfull (I ran out of white tiles and curved slopes) while the middle and forward sections are completely studless. However I really enjoyed building these middle and forward sections as they are full of SNOT.

    [MOC] Imperial Turbolaser Battery

    @DrMuttonchops very nice result. I really like the extra details you have provided here and there. I can assure you that in an exposition, this is a very popular build and also one you can display close to the public as it is sturdy. Small question: did you build the interior as well? I did not. Keep on building!
  7. Here we go, almost exactly 3 years after publishing about my Star Wars Medical Corps, I finally completed the capital ship that I envisioned to build. Better late than ever... Please discover below my DP20M Medical Frigate. For additional background and history, I invite you to read my original Star Wars Medical Corps topic. DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr About the DP20M: The DP20M is an unarmed modified version of the famous DP20 Corellian Gunship. As often with vehicles and spacecrafts assigned to the medical units at the end of the Republic Galactic era and during the Empire, these were either 2nd-grade ships, either refurbished ships. The DP20M is no exception to the rule. The structure of the ship being sturdy and robust, it was common to find DP20 that could still travel around the galaxy but whose weaponry was damaged during combats. Some of these DP20 were then recycled into medical frigate by completely removing the weapon and extra shielding systems. The spared volume allowed for the installation of additional health support and medical equipment. DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr The DP20M was designed to provide a small surgery room along with a bacta tank, a reanimation room, and a small hangar hosting a tiny speeder as well as a first-aid container. Here are the various modules: DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr Playability: The cockpit can be opened and a pilot minifig easily fits inside, even with a large helmets DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr The central section can host 2 medical beds with extra medical equipment around. DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr The rear section contains 2 different modules: - the surgery room with a bacta tank DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr Apparent studs allows for minifigs to be placed in several places inside the room. The bact tank can be opened to welcome a minifig. Several accessories are available to play around. - The small hangar can host a speeder and a first-aid medical container. DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr There is also an extra stud to clip the speeder and a join ball to clip the container. Accessories can also be stored on the wall. The lateral panels open vertically and rotating bars are available to block them in open position. The manipulation is very easy and can be done blindly. The build is sturdy, easy to carry and fully swooshable. The Medical Corp is now complete: Star Wars Medical Corp by Veynom, on Flickr Star Wars Medical Corp - Play features by Veynom, on Flickr Technical details: 70 studs in length Initial idea inspired by the half cone panel from the Tantive IV set from 2009 3 years of time between the first idea and cockpit prototype and the completion of the ship. Once the technic backbone frame was drafted, the build went fast, starting from the rear until the cockpit. Lot of SNOT in many locations. The "good old piece of junk" aspect is emphasized through the extensive use of old "not so white anymore" bricks from the 70s and 80s.

    [MOC] Porax-42 Gunship

    I've added a digital render of the on-screen version to the original post. And here is a bonus picture: Hangar Bay for Porax-42 by Veynom, on Flickr

    [MOC] Porax-42 Gunship

    Thank you for the nice comments. This is not a Rogue-class fighter. The tails are much shorter on this one and the cockpit has a different shape. But it is similar, it's true. The Rogue-class is derived from the Porax-38. As this one is more recent, I simply increase the number. And 42 is the best answer anyway. 😁 The landing gears are fixed and do not retract. But they can easily be removed. I'm even considering creating the LDD.

    [MOC] Porax-42 Gunship

    And here lands my latest MOC ship: the Porax-42 Gunship. On-screen version: Porax-42c Gunship by Veynom, on Flickr Concept art version: Porax-42 Gunship by Veynom, on Flickr This gunship is based on The Mandalorian serie, and particularly episode 6 where it can been seen in a hangar at the end of the episode. It also appears among the concept arts. Note that the on-screen version is a bit different from the concept art, specifically the reactor pods front. Porax-42 Gunship by Veynom, on Flickr I decided to change the color code because I had a bit enough of the usual 50 shades of grey. I would have like trying a black and (dark) red color scheme but I lack the necessary curved slopes. Porax-42 Gunship by Veynom, on Flickr Porax-42 Gunship by Veynom, on Flickr The resulting ship is quite compact and relies on extensive use of SNOT.

  11. Here is a small reversible vignette made for a contest on BrickPirate. The concept is simple: DO a vignette and make its mirrored counterpart (a bit like Stranger Things). I have selected Anakin Skywalker becoming Darth Vader in a very classical way. Light side, dark side by Veynom, on Flickr Dark side, light side by Veynom, on Flickr A few highlights: Anakin becomes Darth Vader, that's the obvious central point; Clones become Stormtroopers, still a natural evolution. Trade Federation droids become rebels ... this is a daring evolution. Blue lasers become red, and vice-versa The light side is chasing droids in an evil environment but the dark side is hunting down rebels in a bright and white environment. In the end, which side will you go for ?

    [MOC] TIE-Lambda - new MKII version

    Great feedback and thanks for the memo, @BEAVeR. This one, I will save andkeep for my future photo book I intend to build after I reach 10 years of MOCs. Speaking about my own TIE design .... well, I think I've been there already with my TIE-Viper: TIE-Viper Specifications by Veynom, on Flickr

    [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.
