  1. This is just amazing. Wonderful job, highly detailed, historically accurate. Awesome. Thank you for sharing this great U-boot.
  2. Sturmgeschütz III Ausf. G by Veynom, on Flickr Behind the strange name of Sturmgeschütz III Ausf. G (also shortened into "StuG III"), we can find one of the most successful German armored vehicle of WW2. Initially designed as mobile and armored artillery support for infantry, the StuG III quickly revealed itself as a very effective tank destroyer. In fact, it was so successful that it became the most produced German fully-tracked vehicle of WW2, and the 2nd most produced armored vehicle (just behind the Sdkfz 251 half track). Sturmgeschütz III Ausf. G by Veynom, on Flickr So, why manufacturing a tank destroyer when you already have the best tanks around (Panzer IV, Panther, Tiger)? The answer is quite simple: cost. The StuG III was cheaper and easier to produce than all other more modern German tanks. Still, it could carry the devastating 7.5cm anti-tank gun. Moreover, it offered easy maintenance when on the field. Thanks to that, more than 11,300 units were built (all versions included). This number is to be compared with the number of built Panthers (6,000), Tiger I (1,500), or even with the total number of armored vehicles built on the Panzer IV chassis (8,500). Sturmgeschütz III Ausf. G by Veynom, on Flickr The Stug III's low profile made it hard to spot and target, as the above picture can illustrate. Sturmgeschütz III Ausf. G by Veynom, on Flickr The side armored plates are named "Schürzen" and offer additional protection. The Ausf. G version is characterized by the wider superstructure, and the rotating cupola with periscopes. My model depicts an early-to-mid production model. late-production models have a sloped and rounded gun mantlet and a machine gun on top of the structure. Sturmgeschütz III Ausf. G by Veynom, on Flickr Another characteristic of the StuG III is its capacity to store and carry a lot of equipment behind the superstructure. This was often used to carry spare parts (tracks & wheels), food, water, gas, and ammunition (ok not when in the front line). Sturmgeschütz III Ausf. G by Veynom, on Flickr For the build, my model is freely inspired by those from Brickmania (BKM), Custom-Bricks (CB), and other MOCs from the Internet. The minifig and crate stickers are from BKM. The tracks and tanks stickers are from CB. All of my olive green tiles were used for the camo. That was a challenge: it had to look realistic and yet, the model had to hold together. Enjoy!

    [MOC] The Battle of Hue

    Very nice diorama. Well done. Did you design the Huey yourself or is it based on the BKM version ?
  4. Awesome result, well done. I also like your cannons, these are well done.

    [MOC] TIE Phantom - NOW MINIFIG COMPATIBLE!

    Very nice rendition of the TIE-Phantom. I like the way you connected the wings panels together ! Your cockpit it very nice and it is unfortunate that minifigs can't find inside. I had done the job myself for my DP20M and those SW helmets are really large. DP20M Medical Frigate by Veynom, on Flickr I've downloaded your instructions and I'm adding it to my todo. Thanks for this. I will provide additional feedback later!

    12v track in stud.io

    Personally, I attach the rail to a plate (just a regular 6x2 plate, not even the old modified 8x2 plate) and repeat the process but in the end, while everything looks as correctly connect, there is a deviation. When placing a curve, I see there is an angle of 349.28. I tried moving to 348 and now, I am playing with various angles until it fits.

    I run into the same problem and can't find a solution so far.

    [MOC] Steve Roger Rogers

    Some pretty ideas there. But for Hulk, on TBB, they suggested to use a B2 battle droid instead. :) But the million dollar's question is: Vision. As he is already a droid, how should we represent him?

    [MOD] TIE-Vidiyo

    Here is my infamous TIE-Vidiyo. TIE-Vidiyo by Veynom, on Flickr TIE-Vidiyo by Veynom, on Flickr Built for a contest on the French BrickPirate forum where we had to pick up a Lego set that does not fly, and make it fly, whatever the way. I selected one of the Vidiyo boxes, slapped some TIE-wings on, added a pilot seat, engineered a system to prevent the cockpit from rolling around, and decided to use the soft handle as engine exhaust. My TIE-Vidiyo was born. And some people said the Vidiyo sub-theme would never take off...

    Mandalorian - The Armorer

    Nice design.

    [MOC] Steve Roger Rogers

    Ah, uh .... good question. ;) Maybe a black or dark green 3PO body with a dark red head ? Thank you. They are quite flexible. No issue with the legs, torso, head for example. Concerning the arms, the should/arm junction point is the weakest point, mainly because the grey bar from the shoulder is fixed inside the blue 2x2 dish but cannot go to far because it is blocked by the upper arm grey bar (the one covered by the blue 1x1 rond tile ), so sometimes it falls off when moving the arm. But one in place, it is fine. Then, the elbow is a bit weak. The lack of friction prevents some position, like holding the shield against gravity. Everything else works fine. Hands are strong, 1 stud is enough for the shield to be hold. Well, yes. They are designed to go up and lose against that battle mech. ;)

    [MOC] Steve Roger Rogers

    My latest build: Steve Roger Rogers, improbable crossover between a BI Battle droid and the famous Captain America. Which version do you prefer ? Light or dark ? Marvel or Star Wars? Round shield or vintage shield? Steve Roger Rogers by Veynom, on Flickr After seeing a couple of weeks ago a meme about this, and remembering some cool instructions to make battle droids, I decided to build the meme with bricks. I started with the light blue version, as more bricks are easily available in that color and it was therefore easier. Steve Roger Rogers by Veynom, on Flickr The shield was the real challenge and required quite a few trials and errors. At first, I did not want the easy solution of the pre-print shield from Lego. Besides, when I finally got it, I realised the colors were not matching. I tried multiple brickbuild versions but macaroni tiles do not exist in the needed colors and size. Ultimately, I remembered that Cap also used a different shield shape in the early era. So I built that one instead and loved it. Note that one of my shield attempts resulted in the small grey socles. Not everything was lost in the end. Steve Roger Rogers by Veynom, on Flickr Steve Roger Rogers by Veynom, on Flickr As I had purchased the printed shield anyway, I tried to build a dark blue version of Captain America. I played a bit more with the colors by swapping bricks here and there but in the end, it also looks cool. Steve Roger Rogers by Veynom, on Flickr Steve Roger Rogers by Veynom, on Flickr Steve Roger Rogers by Veynom, on Flickr Now, I have 2 small statues, quite colored, original and highly flexible to display. Steve Roger Rogers by Veynom, on Flickr A few words about the markings: The "A" on the head, and the horizontal lines come from a very old dry transfer sheet from Verling (people who did scale modeling in the 90s should remember). The 3 stars on the old shield and the star on the torse of the dark blue version are cut in a simple white sticker. The 1x1 round tile and the round shield are printed bricks from TLC. I hope you enjoyed this little build.

    [MOC] Nebelwerfer in action

    Thank you all for the nice comments. It is not the first time I use the ice cream as smoke effect. I already used it in a Star Wars modified vehicle inspired by the Russian Katioucha. TX-225 Katyoucha by Veynom, on Flickr

    [MOC] TIE-Raptor

    Probably my last MOC for this year, here lands the TIE/rpt or TIE-Raptor, along with a light maintenance platform to easily access it. TIE-Raptor by Veynom, on Flickr The TIE-Raptor is one of the many TIE variants. This one comes from the X-Wings book serie and is still part of the "Legend" universe. TIE-Raptor by Veynom, on Flickr It is easily recognisable thanks to its small wings in a cross-shape. The body is a classic TIE ball. TIE-Raptor by Veynom, on Flickr In order to display it easily in my imperial hangar bay, I've built a small maintenance platform that can also be used as display tand. Access & Maintenance Platform by Veynom, on Flickr Minimum service but the color code of the platform is aligned with the rest of my accessories. Furthermore, I did not want it to distract from viewing the TIE. Access & Maintenance Platform by Veynom, on Flickr This is so far my 14th TIE variant. The complete collection is available here.
