    [MOC] Imperial Star Destroyer

    Thanks a lot Aggron44. I wish I could make instructions; but I still have much to learn about LDD before I could embark on such an enormous task.

    [MOC] Millennium Falcon (40th Anniversary)

    Thanks Brickdad. there are 10 years separating the original UCS and the upcoming one; I really hope LEGO designers found a solution to the interior, and decided to put more attention to the hull finishing like Marshal Banana's MOC, if they did then the new UCS would top every other MOC including mine. Thanks Globemaster8, I also think this is the best size, and my design goal was to combine the right look with the playability we all want to have in our Falcon sets. Thank you very much, I'm glad you think my MOC bested the retiring UCS, the new UCS however might change that score. But until that happens I'll enjoy your great complements as much as I can.

    Thanks Pateras; I'm using a combination of Technic links and hinge bricks. Download the high-res pic shown below; I think it might give you a good view of the connections. LEGO Star Wars - Star Destroyer 17 4K by Khaled Yousef, on Flickr

    Thanks a lot blbills for your offer to help; I still have much to learn about LDD. I will be recreating this model physically, and this time I'll make sure to count every piece and show every step from the start. Thank you Smack. I would like to see the one you'll build :-)

    Actually this is a good idea, and it's not impossible at this scale, though it would just be 2*2 opening and won't fit a minifig through, but it would still be a nice detail and play feature to add.

    Thanks jhaelego; I'm following the progress of your awesome Falcon too on Flickr, such an incredible build.

    Ooh, that's interesting. I bet one of those is a thumbs-up-lighter-thingie

    Thanks. I will be re-building the whole thing again to achieve a stronger frame and create more space for more interior features, and this time I will be taking WIP pictures that shows every step inside out. Thanks for the complements

    Of course, my target is to learn LDD and redesign the ship in a more professional way and be able to make instructions and part list. Now for some more pics.

    Thanks, if I learned how to make instructions some day I'll send it to you for free; you'll need the money for buying all the expensive parts My MOC got blogged today by BrickNerd Check it out. http://bricknerd.com/home/the-fastest-hunk-of-junk-in-the-galaxy-2-2017

    Thanks Raskolnikov, it's your turn now to build a better Falcon like your AWESOME Star Destroyer with interior too.

    [MOC] Millennium Falcon (40th Anniversary)

    WHAT, no worries at all, criticism is always welcome in all shapes and forms, and I value your input. ... and WOW, this castle is HUGE! Thanks, and yeah, the minifigs have pretty damn weird proportions for anyone to be able to come up with a correct "minifig-scale". Thanks Commander Turtle, I thought about doing that, not because my model is that good but because people are anticipating the UCS so bad, but I didn't think people would buy it, even if I used all the professional photography and photoshop in the world. It would only provoke the mods on the pictures and rumors thread to ban me for spreading false rumors

    [MOC] Millennium Falcon (40th Anniversary)

    Thanks, I wanted to build a Falcon I can "live" in, not just a display model. I knew fans would love the detailed interior as much as I do. So much nice complements from a brilliant designer. Your complements makes me happy :-) I'm glad you like the easy accessible interior; designing the removable top hull was really tough because I wanted it to look good closed AND opened, and keep it tough so it won't flip open every time I swoosh it around to escape from TIE Fighters. Yeah I know; the Falcon is just a space burger with a pickle on the side not the most inspiring design of a space ship. I'm glad you liked my model despite all that. Thanks, but you need to send me 40% more grey parts and increase my storage area at home by 40% and extend my free time by 40%, only then I can build the model to the standard you like But seriously, maybe the photos don't show how big this model is; it's huge, about 64 cm long (25 inches) or about 80 studs, you want it to be 112 studs long (90cm)? While this might seem to be the correct scale on paper it looks ridiculous in reality next to minifigs, because minifigs are not proportionate to human body, you need to compromise and put the "chibiness" and tubbiness of the minifig in mind to make a minifig-scale model that doesn't make minifigs look like dwarfs. I generally use a scale of 1:40 and then drop 20% off the overall measurements to compensate for minifig distorted proportions. Now, as promised, the pictures of the bottom hull.

    Unfortunately, I don't use LDD, so I really can't give an accurate piece count. Maybe when I make the size comparison I can get a rough estimate, but we're talking about thousands of pieces, heavy Technic frame, double plated hull, interior deck and details, play features and tons of greebling, so it's quite dense. Thanks man :-) Your wish is my command.

    Thanks a lot mortesv; I will be adding many more pictures of the bottom hull and interior details ASAP, I'm working on them as we speak. Thanks very much roadstermatt and Flandy; I'm sure the LEGO designers will make a much better looking ship from the outside, I'm not sure if they could beat my interior though
