  1. Building Mortesv's Nebulon-B Thread

    Impressive, most impressive! I downloaded your LXF file for the stands ages ago (thanks again for sharing!) but I only finally bought the actual instructions the other week - not working for a few months put the brakes on my Lego habit... Loving how that's working out in the brick for you so far! Can't wait to see how it looks when it's finished, so I'll know what mine will look like when I get to it.
  2. [MOC] Dashing Banshee - YT-1300 Mod

    Looks like a lot of awesome SNOT work involved in that - well done. I love this updated clean "modern" take on the YT-1300 - though not quite 100% on the TIE-like wings. They might grow on me... I'd love to see what sort of internal structure you've got underneath that beautiful exterior shell! Can you share any renders with "her" clothes off?
  3. OoooOOOOoohhhh! Been waiting for an "official" version for a while. It's been great to see the creativity involved in the remakes, but I'm definitely keen to see what you guys come up with. Bring it on!
  4. [MOC] UCS Tantive IV - CR-90 Corvette

    Beautiful as just a display model and playable with minifigs at the same time - major kudos for achieving both goals @Kit Bricksto!
  5. She was mentioned earlier (in 2014) as having two back then, but Cate Blanchette now has 3 minifigs over 3 themes: Galadriel (LOTR) Irina Spalko (Indiana Jones) Hela (Avengers)
  6. [MOC] Lego Ideas - Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale)

    I noticed today that this project has broken through the 10k mark! Congratulations, @KingsKnight! I really hope it gets approved, good luck with the next stage of the process!
  7. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Sceptic +1. But willing to be wrong - guess we'll find out soon enough! OK, so there are modern parts on it and superficially some areas seem to be legit compared to the teasers and thoughts about new cockpit parts, etc. but it just doesn't seem different enough at the back to be a totally new Falcon design - it just looks tweaked. Unless all the magic is inside, I guess. Others have already mentioned the rear plates, but also, why would they use the old rigging parts again for the engine grilles when MOCcers have come up with (IMO) much better looking engines? I don't have one but I never liked the use of rigging parts as it looks like they need to be bent to match the curve - even though they used them in the original UCS MF, I'd have thought that was strictly speaking illegal... Not that I'm the judge & jury, of course!
  8. Survey: New parts and new colors

    What about 2x2 and 2x4 versions of part #15672 (alt. 92946) Slope 45 2 x 1 with 2/3 Cutout? And a corner 2x2 version kinda like part #3045 but with 2/3 cut-out in the studded corner? I can think of a few uses for those... Would anyone else use these?
  9. Have you guys seen this Lego Ideas entry that's already hit 10k votes? The builder has a few other similar projects up on Ideas as well - obviously aiming for a modular approach and a whole product line. Looks like this will be in the next Ideas cycle - good luck to them!
  10. [MOC] Lego Ideas - Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale)

    Spotted this on Reddit a few mins ago - supported! I agree it looks much better proportioned than previous official versions. Good luck with this very well executed MOC. Other than stickers, etc. is it actually buildable with current brick colours? I'd be all over instructions or an LDD file for that if you ever want to release some...
  11. [MOC] The GHOST from Star Wars: Rebels

    Yeah, Photobucket just hosed all their users by requiring you to pay $399 subscription to use external links to your pics hosted by them. I've just moved all my 360 renders (the only stuff I don't host on Flickr because they don't do animated gifs) to Google Photos and deleted my Photobucket account. They can shove it! Not a big deal for me as I only had like 20 pics there, but heavy users are really being hit bad.
  12. Racing A-Wing

    That's exactly what I was trying and failing to do in LDD... Cool, thanks - good to have another zero-gap low profile SNOT technique in the toolkit!
  13. Racing A-Wing

    Cool. Thanks for the description of the technique. I can't get this to work in LDD but I think you're saying you used four #92593 plates in two pairs, one pair inverted and rotated at 90 degrees across other, with the smooth parts touching, right? Must give it a try in plastic sometime soon!
  14. [MOD] 10134 UCS Y-Wing refresh

    Yes, good catch, Nathan! They're #2903, "White Wheel 61.6mm D. x 13.6mm Motorcycle".
