    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    Well I started it, but floating castles are just more cool. I will eventually get back to it though, don't worry ;)

    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    Floating castle with motors and lights.

    Very nice! Shame they got so little on-screen time. I'd try curved 2x2 slopes on the sides of engines, or maybe even using very old 3x6x3 engine blocks for engines, to get more curvature?

    Very little. This was not built with matching the 75181 set's parts in mind; construction philosophy is different between these. Cockpit, nacelle dome pieces, few random plates and small pieces and that's about it.

    No, thankfully v9 is only for clarifications in the instructions, so the build did not change between v8 and v9. Sorry for confusion! Btw, yellow stickers look great... :D
  6. We can easily see how the first page of this board has plenty of old topics which rarely if ever go out of it. This is because many new posts are added solely because someone building a MOC with instructions requires help. I've been thinking about this for some time because I am partially responsible for the issue. My X-Wing refuses to "fade" not because it is a great MOC, but because its forum lifespan is extended by the people building it. It feels good to see your creation on the top all the time, but it gets old and makes it harder for other people to gather feedback for their creations. If you do not see this as an issue then there is no action to be don, case closed ;) If you do though, I might have an idea - create a new subforum for all maintenance topics. How would it work: - A MOC with downloadable or purchasable instructions is posted to the forums normally just like now. - For each MOC with downloadable or purchasable instructions, a topic for support is created in the new subforum, and is linked to from MOC's presentation. - For existing MOCs with downloadable or purchasable instructions,a topic for support is created in the new subforum, and is linked to from MOC's presentation and last post. The catch is - it is changing human habits, so there will be a transition period where moderators will have more work to do.

    But that is just what I did.... I wonder if this is not caused by submodels?

    That's odd. Well just ask brickvault to send you the latest version. I also asked them what's up with that. Sorry for the trouble! The differences are minor, but I do not remember if they affect the parts list. It was quite some time ago. I can check this for you later.

    v9 is the most recent one. The only issue is wobbling, but I don't think there is any thing I can do without a very major redesign. Maybe if I'll tackle the T-70 this one would get an update too. All in all this was never meant to be a swooshable ship ;)

    Thanks for suggestion - and I fully agree! The thing is, I have no idea how to do it in, which is why I eventually left it "as is". I just hoped people would realize it would be better to search for entire part. The yellow plates are not an error, they actually are one part of updates I forgot about when taking photos. Both BV and me had prototypes finished some time before we finalized instructions and this is an effect of this. Thankfully the change is minimal... Thanks for the info about the handcuffs - updating the XMLs right away! I even know how this happened - I made "my own" handcuff piece to represent the squished one, but forgot that it won't automatically export if I won't name it properly. And guess what, I did not. As for the plate with handle - yes it very slightly sticks out, but it should not be visible. Landing gear should fully retract, like this: ...and then you fold rear flag piece till it is flush with the body: Big thanks to everyone for appreciation!

    33 studs. So 26.4 centimeters. It fits VERY snugly in a standard IKEA's Billy cabinet.
  12. To me it is not darker. It also wasn't darker for normal Star Destroyers or other models they did, That is the magic of properly done greebling, you can add different colour shade without actually using different colour.

    It is actually super simple. Like, really, I could position it absolutely whenever I want with just adding or removing stacks of plates studs-up, that level of simple. With addition of nice pieces to cover undersides of plates - both tiles and curved slopes - we can finally get back to simple, clean studs-up build style and this shows it is definitely possible. Big thanks for noticing this, too! Okay, I understand B-Wings are thickly shielded, but I am not sure if that rendition of shielding is... accurate. Great fleet though!

    So much better now! :D

    Thanks everyone! :D Yeah I know it was quiiite bold to go with tan, but aside maybe from copper, this really seemed better for me. Anyway you can always swap this for different colour, it is mostly 4L bars and just few 6L with stop (which you can most likely go with cut flex instead, too).
