    Yes, exactly. If you do it right it will be perfectly level. Do you perhaps have an idea how to show it in the instructions?

    Unfortunately this is the biggest issue I had, and despite all the work I put into it, I couldn't find a definite solution. This is also a problem studio models had. The gearbox is providing all the friction. However, please show me few photos of the rear area from different angles, with wings open and closed. I might find some issue. I understand perfectly. Yes, you need to rebuild this section. There will be no straining pieces or no damage or anything, but the wings will be always slanted in relation to the fuselage. It is important to get the gears and axles straight in the first few steps of the build.

    Now I know how people designing cars feel when they see their creation with crazy aftermarket parts. Amazing, in a good honest way! I love all the little changes people do. Please keep them coming! I'd like to do a compilation of every non-stock ship one day.

    Right. I see what you did with the strip near the cockpit. As you can see, it is already showing a gap. It really needs to be 1x4 plate instead of pair of 1x2s. Since this change affects structural integrity, this will definitely void the warranty :D On a more serious note, this is okay for display purposes but it means the nose is now very weakly connected and can snap off during moving the ship. If I can recommend something, use a white 1x4 under the hinge piece and make the strip with a red sticker. As for the engines it shouldn't be a big deal.

    Can you show a 3/4 shot, top-side-front? Certainly it looks interesting! I totally did not get that idea of using printed tiles... damn!
  6. Hah can I trade with some of mine? :D
  7. Does it require such massive stands? Could it be supported on one central stand? What was the total parts cost? What is the instruction's cost?

    The hinges. They are always causing issues... Maybe there is a better way to make the wings? But overall feel of this area is good, the ship is narrow and sleek like it should be. The only area which is not right is the barrel-shaped barrel at the top of the nose. It definitely should be bigger diameter than the nose, and here it really seems like it should be a 2x2 round brick. Maybe the variant with two holes on the sides?

    Well the T-70 is in pipeline later this year, altough most likely it won't be finished in 2018. I intend to use the very same solution for wings, unless their smaller width causes issues warranting developing a different solution.

    Thanks! Yeah, the build really gets its final stiffness very late when all the parts are attached. This is a side effect of external submodules being the load-bearing ones.

    NOT THIS AGAIN. I heard that every creator passes some of his traits or soul into his creations, whatever the medium. I think it is sentimental... thing* but in this case it is all true: I am a short guy and the pilots for my ships have to be short as well. First, the TIEs, where I fixed it finally with the First Order design. Then the Bomber, which had a major redesign. Then Vader also wouldn't fit initially, As for X-Wing, we tested this with BrickVault. I specifically removed one tile from the seat to add that one plate height required to fit the new helmet. It was all right. AND IT IS LIKE THAT AGAIN. But I strongly believe it should fit, because by that time we usually had way more reports of issues with the helmets... try checking all the parts, especially the submodule with the seat piece. *do you know Eurobricks forum autofixes offensive words, in this case the droppings of a male cow, into "megabloks" word? :D

    Ah this gap.... no, sorry, it is a side effect of this being done the way it is (the top half is installed half a plate height lower than normally). You can cover it with additional 1x2 curve slope but to me it looked too bulky and the gap was an acceptable tradeoff.

    Thanks for feedback! I will investigate what's up with instructions and missing pieces later on when I return to my workshop... must be something with the rendering process because the model has these printed pieces and they don't just disappear. I was wondering about moving to Studio 2.0 but it is far too slow to be able to handle such a big model, sadly. There should be no gap, and especially not any assymmetrical one. Can you please take a photo? As for blue pins, the guns have stripes which are kind of bluish in hue... I liked this detail so I added it.

    It looks that bad.

    Review: 75230 Porg

    I am not a fan of this set to be honest. A porg is two spheres merged: its belly and a head. The LEGO set is more like three spheres, more like a snowman. Why is it like that, no idea...
