    MOC: Music Dioramas

    Thanks Retro. The Talk Talk one was pretty hard and I actually might revisit it and improve it more in the future because I don't think I'm that happy with how it came out. I want to find a better way to replicate the circular shape and still make it look like a tree. Maybe attaching the animals should be a secondary consideration.

    [MOC] Eta-2 Actis-Class Interceptor

    Thank you! I too was surprised how well the windscreen came out. It's all about carefully pre-bending those 3mm hoses.

    MOC: Music Dioramas

    Almost a year later, here I am with 5 more dioramas to show. My Lego free time was mostly spent making Star Wars models this year, and it was great to get back to this project last month. Sorry about the Dutch angle shots lol. 26. The Internet- Ego Death 27. Fiona Apple- Fetch the Bolt Cutters 28. Red House Painters- Roller Coaster 29. Talk Talk- Laughing Stock 30.

    [MOC] Eta-2 Actis-Class Interceptor

    Hello all, Today I have some Jedi interceptor MOCs to show you. My plan going into this design was to find a happy medium between the large size of the official LEGO models (so, not use the bubble canopy piece) but not go for perfect minifigure scale either, as that would significantly limit the amount of detail I could add. In this, I think I succeeded fairly well, even if the models look clunky in a few areas. An up-close shot. Here might be a good opportunity to remark on my attempt at recreating the armor surrounding the canopy on the actual model. This was a real challenge and went through many revisions, but ultimately I settled on a combination of flag pieces and the "door rail" plates in the center so as to not cover up too much of the sides. A side profile without display stand. An aerial view. It is only now that I'm realizing the dark grey clips on the front don't match up and are bending the bar slightly. Oops. Lastly, a view of the interior. There is just enough space for one minfigure and you have to take the model apart to get the pilot in there. And here are the interceptors amongst my other models I made earlier this year! Thanks for looking at my creation!

    Thanks! I was worried the studs might look ugly but I think it came out looking just fine

    [MOC] Snoke's Throne Room Diorama

    Hi all, Just wanted to share this 16x32 MOC that I made a couple of years ago after TLJ came out. It depicts the dazzling sequence with the Praetorian Guards in Snoke's throne room, after he gets impaled by the Skywalker lightsaber. I went for a diorama approach rather than a playset-like approach, to suit my personal style. I also took the time to add power function lights to the throne itself, which gives the Snoke minifigure a lot of presence, as he should have. Thanks for looking!

    [MOC] TIE/LN Starfighter

    Thanks!

    [MOC] TIE/LN Starfighter

    Hello there, Today I present my MOC of the standard TIE/LN Starfighter used by the Empire in the OT. This is the final of 3 Star Wars ship MOCs that I have posted to the forum today. Apologies for the photography and cluttered background; I tried my best but I don't have a great set-up at the location I am now. Where to start... Well, there are a few different sizes for this TIE fighter. What I've depicted here is the 6.3m x 6.4m x 7.5m variant, the smallest one. Perhaps the most striking aspect of this MOC is how I've designed the cockpit (yes, it is about as fragile as it looks!). Creating the spherical shape in this scale around the 4x4 piece is one of the hardest things I've attempted as a MOC builder. I'm quite proud of how it came out, though I acknowledge it doesn't look great from some angles. A big challenge I faced that, honestly, I don't know if I ever really overcame, was the transition between the sphere and the "beams" that lead to the wings. It's a lot more pronounced on the actual model, but more of a gradual shift on my rendition, making the cockpit appear larger than intended. From a distance, though, it doesn't look too bad, at least to me. A view of the backside, of course with the "twin ion engines" which form the acronym TIE. I think what I've done with the shaping here is great, and if I could have, I would have made the front look like this. However, since I wanted to use the 4x4 windscreen piece instead of the 6x6, I had to do something different there. I don't think the wings are that great looking, but it's really difficult to capture the thinness effectively. As such they have a lot of bulk and weight to them, requiring reinforcement from the sides which I've incorporated onto the display stand. I don't think I did too bad, but maybe I will go back to the drawing board later down the line. An aerial view Here is what the pilot looks like inside if you were curious. The figure is pretty much trapped in there, though, since I could not find a way to design it such that I can easily remove it. And that about covers the MOC, I think! This is definitely the most complex of the three models that I designed this summer, but I don't know that it's my favorite. I'm curious what you all think of the cockpit technique; I haven't seen any other TIE moc take this approach. And any other comments you'd like to share are welcome as well!

    [MOC] T-65B X-wing Starfighter

    Greetings Eurobricks, I have for you today a MOC of the T65-B X-Wing Starfighter seen in the OT. Specifically, this is Luke's Red 5. This is the second of 3 Star Wars ship MOCs I will be posting to the forum today. Apologies for the photography and cluttered background. I tried my best but I don't have a great set-up at the location I am now. So, I have taken a stab at creating this iconic model in LEGO, and I have come out a changed man. This took about two months of consistent work to get it how I wanted it, and I'm pretty happy with the result. But, gosh, was the process grueling at times. There are so many images, movie-stills, and diagrams of this thing, and they all have varying degrees of difference between them. The result of my MOC basically encompasses all the things that they have in common, with a few liberties of my own. My biggest point of pride with this creation is probably the nose section. I think I got the shaping just right, and I like how the angling of the side panels came out. I haven't seen anyone else try to replicate the leveling-off/slit portion of the silver head, so I took that challenge head-on, and I think it came out looking pretty spectacular (though I'm sure it could be improved!). A couple of images of the back and back fuselage: I'll say the only thing I'm not happy with here is how I've attached the wings. This was one of the biggest challenges I faced, since the stiffer ratcheting hinges bring too harsh of an angle but the more adjustable clip method does not support the weight. Since I definitely did not want to use ugly rubber-bands, I ended up doubling up on 2x1 ball joints for each wing, which works but still doesn't hold super well. But, since functionality is second to appearance for this model, I probably will not fix it. An aerial view. Like my Naboo Starfighter, this model is scaled almost perfectly to the astromech droid head on top, which is just slightly bigger than minifigure scale. Cockpit view I think that about covers it. Thanks for viewing and I hope you enjoyed my rendition of this ever-popular MOC. Any thoughts you have are welcomed in the comments!

    [MOC] Naboo N-1 Starfighter

    Hey Eurobricks, I have for you today a MOC of the Naboo N-1 Starfighter seen in the prequels. This is the first of 3 Star Wars ship MOCs I will be posting to the forum today. Apologies for the photography and cluttered background. I tried my best but I don't have a great set-up at the location I am now. This is one of the sleekest ships in Star Wars, and I tried my hardest to replicate that quality as best I could without compromising its beautiful shape. As anyone who's tried to design one of these before probably knows, this is a very difficult ship to capture in LEGO, particularly at minifigure scale. After many revisions, this is what I settled on and I think it came out great. To remark on the scale a little bit actually, it is slightly bigger than minifigure scale. I scaled it almost exactly with the astromech droid head on the top, however, so everything is pretty proportional. This was a good strategy because the cockpit shield piece is huge even at this scale (hence why I pained some yellow over it). I also shortened the back by removing about two 2x2 round bricks because, at that point, it was longer than my x-wing and it didn't look right. A side and back view A peek inside the cockpit Thanks for giving this a look! Any thoughts are welcome in the comments (especially from anyone who have attempted one of these before).
