  1. Not as interesting as the front, although perhaps it is for anyone who'd want to replicate it I guess .

    75060 - UCS Slave I MOD/MOC

    Thank you, the angled wedge bricks for the skirt I'm definitely going to look into.

    75060 - UCS Slave I MOD/MOC

    I was actually looking for a similar topic to the UCS Millennium Falcon mods tread but I couldn't find it. The main adaptation I did was the functional boarding ramp, as demonstrated below. It took me a while to figure it out but eventually found a solution where I didn't have to sacrifice too much of the original set. Other changes include; Bulkhead between cargo bay and crew quarters ladder connecting cargo bay, crew quarters and cockpit bunkbox behind pilot chair conical blaster anchorages on the hulll Light functionality This was very fun to build in. There's actually a small maintenance compartment above the bed but It's impossible to see without taking apart the upper hull. The ladder goes down to the crew quarters. Depending on the orientation of the ship, this is either a vertical or a horizontal shaft. The pilot chair can still rotate. The crew quarters, located below the pilot chair (in flying mode) isn't that much to talk about. The space is very limited. The structural beams within the ship limited the position of the platform. Fixing this will require some serious modifications. The cargo bay. I used to have shelves on the starboard side as well but had to remove them in order to fit the door-ramp mechanism. Like the crew quarters this area could also use some finishing touches but I haven't decided yet on which way to go here. One of the light bricks shines all the way through the ship interior (the other one only in the bunk box). To max out the available space in the crew quarters I had to place the pilot chair in it highest position. Therefor I had to change the energy shield shroud, which is located above the pilot, in order to have Boba Fett utilise his helmet gear. That's about it, feel free to make suggestions, I'm not finished with this one yet .
  4. Thanks, that was indeed some calculation, I designed this one on paper .
  5. This wall painting depicts a scene based on this youtube video. Anyone who has a feline companion may have observed the knocking-down-cups-from-the-table syndrome many cats seem to be showing. And while there is probably extended scientific literature around to explain this behaviour, the general consensus seems to be that cats are monsters but we still love them. I reckon the ancient Egyptians knew this long before we did so I thought it to be a funny Idea to make a painted wall fragment displaying precisely that. At the same time I grabbed this opportunity to do an extensive SNOT study. I wasn’t able to include this in my Egyptian temple, it is too big and the yellow background doesn’t match the rest of the temple (some constructions required a specific part that is not available in tan). I did like working in this scale, it allowed me to put in some more details such as the golden anklet, the striped hair and belt on the female figure. Incase anyone would wonder, the hieroglyphs are printed tiles originating from the very first Star Wars Naboo Fighter.

    [MOC] La Flora

    She's a beauty, that's for sure. There's really nothing to criticize, except maybe that little area where the galleries merge with the broadside, I hadn't noticed that earlier (so it's really nitpicking now), the pearl gold directly on the yellow is in great contrast to that over the black of the galleries. It kind of breaks the whole of the galleries I think.
  7. I'd think the main reason for technic panels looking how they look is to limit weight with a decent level of aesthetics. You'd be able to make a much more accurate vehicle using system parts but it'll be a lot heavier as well, making it less interesting for motorised creations.

    [MOC] Pirate Barque: The Spectre

    Thank you, I'll go through these web archives to see if I can find my archive page somewhere. I am looking into using my YouTube channel more often so a video of this ship might be a good Idea. Although I prefer to let the footage speak for itself.

    [MOC] Pirate Barque: The Spectre

    I haven't used glue so far but I can imagine this might the way to go for the shrouds to prevent deformation.

    [MOC] Pirate Barque: The Spectre

    I don't think I've kept many of the pictures from this ship during the build. But this tread has a lot of WIP pictures from one of my previous ships. It's not as refined as the Spectre but the principle on which the hull structure is based is basically the same. It doesn't have the 1/2 offset you can see in below picture though. I hope this helps.
  11. Nicely done, I don't think I've ever seen coral colour on a MOC ship before, you might be a pioneer here. It makes me want to experiment with red-dark red-coral colour schemes.

    [MOC] Volvo FH

    I'd say it's a little bit of both, a hybrid! A System cab on a Technic chassis as it were.

    [MOC] Volvo FH

    I have some WIP shots for the interested; I considered adding a windshield but that wasn't a succes, It looked more like shattered safety glass . Then it hit me, most Technic models don't even have windshields, what a waste of time. I was actually prepping the Spectre in the background, I've been working on way too many MOCs at the same time, it gets really chaotic at times... There are more WIP pictures in my Brickshelf gallery as well as some additional pics of the finished model.

    [MOC] Volvo FH

    Thank you, I did not use any linear actuators on the bogie lift, the 2nd drive axle is lifted via a leverage (orange beams) connected to a rotating axle in the rear. That function is controlled by an M-motor which is located in the wheelbase of the vehicle (not in this picture) I'm having some trouble making the hooklift work in a consequent manner so I intend to redesign that part.
