    Star Destroyer - Set 75055 UCS Mod

    Thanks! My goal was to offer a highly detailed alternative to the UCS Destroyer, as it's just too big and too expensive for the average person! I can afford to buy it currently, but I simply have no room to display it if I did. This model is just under 2' long and takes up far less space, and being based off an existing set offers a good starting point for someone to mod. There are also few Imperial-II Star Destroyer models out there, both UCS to date have been of the Imperial-I class Devastator. I made sure to stay away from using exotic parts as well. I'm working on plans in Stud.io, will be offering them once complete.

    Star Destroyer - Set 75055 UCS Mod

    As beautiful as it is, not everyone has either the funds nor the display space for the UCS Star Destroyer. To that end, I offer a highly detailed yet modestly sized alternative that is a modification of an existing set, 75055. This is a model of Vader's Imperial-I class Star Destroyer Devastator as seen in Rogue One and A New Hope, but can also be reconfigured using easily swapable modular parts into an Imperial-II class Star Destroyer as seen in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The original set has had the internal playset removed, a complete ventral hull added with main hangar, detailed engines, and two new command towers. The model has been slightly enlarged to 1/2700 scale and is 23.5" long. The command tower, main batteries, and dorsal axial cannons are modular to convert between versions. The Mk I also has removable waist mounted quad cannons and engine thrust vanes. Completing the model is a display stand and a microscale Tantive IV Corellian Corvette, that while slightly overscale still fits perfectly in the main hangar and can be attached there. I used photos of the original Devastator filming model from A New Hope and the larger Avenger filming model from The Empire Strikes Back as reference.

    Incom-FreiTek T-70 X-Wing

    Because of the funky minifigure proportions, I "fudge" things as necessary. In this case I went with the most readily visible part of the figure in the model, which is the head.

    Working on making one available.

    Incom-FreiTek T-70 X-Wing

    Look at the studio model picture I posted above. The current LEGO minifigure/x-wing size relationship has been closer to 2/3 scale. My design is closer to a true 1:1. When building my T-65B (off which my T-70 model is based) I also used a 1:72 scale Revell X-Wing kit, as well as pictures of the various studio models and planform drawings.

    Incom-FreiTek T-70 X-Wing

    Look at pictures of the studio models. If anything I'm undersized. Note the size of the pilot in relation to the size of the craft. I posted a T-65B X-Wing the other day, this model uses the same basic hull. The color on this one is white (muted it in the render).

    Yes it is.

    Incom-FreiTek T-70 X-Wing

    Adaptation of my Incom T-65B X-Wing model. Features the same geared S-Foil mechanism, working landing gear and opening canopy. LDD does not yet have parts from the Force Awakens sets, so I substituted an R2 astromech and Rebel pilot for now. Will post pics of real model once I've collected the parts.

    Incom T-65B X-Wing

    Collecting the parts currently, almost have them all. Also working on a T-70 model, will post pics when it's finished.

    Incom T-65B X-Wing

    Yes I have. There is no adequate transition for the studded end, and they would preclude the ability to feature functional landing gear.

    Incom T-65B X-Wing

    Thanks! Seamless design is always a big goal of mine, as is as nearly studless as possible. Overall I strive for accuracy first, playability second, and size/number of elements a distant third. That's why so much of my work is huge! This is actually one of my smaller sets. That said, I think I actually nailed all three on this one. No worries, a better TIE is on the way!

    Incom T-65B X-Wing

    I set out to create a more screen-accurate minifigure scaled X-Wing, and this is my result. The model is built to accept the canopy used in the new Poe's X-Wing Fighter set (75102), but it is not yet available to use in LDD so I created a stand-in for now. I am collecting the pieces to build the model, which is 1471 elements total. It features a geared S-Foil wing system controlled by the wheel on the back, opening canopy, and positionable landing gear with doors. Please visit my Mocpages to see more of my work. Comments/feedback appreciated!
