    [MOC] ISD Chimaera

    Spain, but not sure which city right now.

    [WIP] [UCS] MC75 "Profundity"

    I absolutely love the hull shape. Especially the bottom curves, I imagine start trek enterprise-like passing shots will look marvelous. That said, I also liked offcolored details and hatches from this very first photo: If the hatches are too bright, maybe do them in DBG too? Anyway, if you could incorporate some of these details, it would be even better. Congrats on the build!

    [MOC] TIE cockpit ball

    I hope! Two years after mine it should be better, after all! :D Thats the best thing in lego. Few new pieces and entire new way of building stuff emerges. I do have problem with some of the gaps buuuut this is an interesting new direction which is worth exploring. Good job!

    [MOC] mid-scale Millennium Falcon (WIP)

    I'd consider removing few of the tiles on the 3x12 wings, especially nearing the center area, to break up the striped texture a little bit. It still looks fantastic anyway and this is a minor issue. Overall, this is the best looking MF I've seen so far.

    [MOC] BTL-S3-ish Y-Wing x 2

    I didn't scale to any "official data", as my experience tells me most of these values are outright wrong. For example: https://www.starwars.com/databank/a-wing-fighter A-Wing's listed length is 9.6 meters. Someone did research on this already. If we consider average pilot height to be 1.75meters, then the ship would be... just 4.5 meters long. It is very rough estimate, but even if we are really far off and have 50% error, this still gives us up to 6 meters in length. You can safely ignore all official data regarding Star Wars starship sizes. That said, I scale the ships to available pieces, most often cockpit canopies or other areas which would be hard to get right without specialized pieces (for example y-wing nacelle domes). If Y-Wing was scaled to the same scale as the X-Wing, it would be bigger than the UCS Y-wing, at least according to what I could see in the movies.

    Fraud MOC sellers.

    Is it just me or all these fraud sellers are also selling lighting kits? Maybe this is literally one person?

    SFS TIE/x1 Advanced

    Proportions. The x1 has 9-"long" ball while standard TIE has 8-"long", as it looked better. This in turn allowed me to make better gun & cockpit canopy mounting. But yes, I can't say I am fond of the original design anymore. Sadly, updating an existing design is a complicated process so it got stuck, two times already...

    [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 ;)

    Floating castle with motors and lights.

    RESISTANCE RZ-2 A-WING

    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?

    [MOC] BTL-S3-ish Y-Wing x 2

    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.

    [MOC] Star Wars: The X-Wing Story

    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
  13. 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.
