    (MOC) IG-88 Battle Mech

    Hiya Here is the second MOC in this series which follows on from Boba Fett's Battle Mech. I was reluctant to start this one as IG-88 has been done many times before and I wasn't sure how to tackle it and it stayed unfinished for a long time whilst I worked on the other mechs in this series. The upper torso with it's space for the minifig and the shoulder joint gave me no end of grief but seeing IG-11 in action in Episode 1 of the Mandalorian helped me realise how he would move in battle (instead of the stiffly awkward way he was portrayed in Empire) and that the important thing was to try to capture this sense of motion. Anyway, here he is and I'm glad to get this one out of the way haha. I hope you like it!

    [MOC] update from the LEGO city

    Hello there, after a long break, I wanted to get back in touch and show an update or the current state of my LEGO city. Since my last post, the city has grown significantly. You can see the current state directly in the first picture below. The river has been extended and got a rock wall on one side, which extends to the river mouth. On the other side I have started some time ago with the construction of the city park. It will be the central place of the city. Currently I'm working diligently to expand the park and add many small details. To give you an overview, especially about the park, I have also attached a few pictures of the park: I still make a YouTube video for each progress. So if you are interested in how the city has grown or how it will progress in the future, feel free to check it out. The latest video about the park can be found here: I hope you like the update. Please let me know what you think about the current state of the city.
  3. Happy May the 4th everyone! Toady is a special day. That's why I'm releasing my first MOC: the Torment Imperial-II Star Destroyer. Made of 3,011 pieces, 25 inches long (79 studs), weighing 2,07kg, it's a medium-sized, modular Imperial-II Star Destroyer holding on a single Lego stand. It features all of the recognizable elements of the real studio model: turrets, antennas, hangars, bridge, neck, engines, with close attention to every detail and proportions of the original Imperial-II ship from Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. Designing took about 70 days, plus 15 days for building / testing, & another 15 days for making instructions and photos. More than 3 months of work. My goal was to build the most accurate SD as I could, in a limited scale - a moderately-sized build that could still easily fit on a desk or shelf, and be moved freely. This choice of scale made working on greeble and proportions a real challenge. Designing a single, secure stand was not an easy task either. But after all this work, I'm really happy with the result. ► The instructions for the Torment are available (762-page PDF). If you want to buy them, hit me up at flyinspace.mocs@gmail.com All photos in my Flickr album. I plan to make more soon. Hope you guys enjoy it, and may the 4th be with you!

  4. I missed out on the 5571 Black Cat as a high school kid (other priorities...), but ever since I got my hands on it a few years ago, and inspired by Andrea Grazi's truck and Ingmar Spijkhoven's trucks, I wanted to build a "Black Cat v2". An upgraded version with modern parts and more functions, such as full suspension, working engine, pneumatic pump for trailer attachments and a working fifth wheel coupling. This is turning into a "Magnum Opus" for me, since I've been working so long on it, rebuilding again and again various parts. Now that I have a rolling chassis, I felt it was time to share. I'm building digitally also, mostly to assess what parts I need to purchase and try out things: The differential that's peeking through the chassis is intended to have an idling engine by the PF motor (while e.g. the pneumatic pump is running) and that is "added" to the motion of the rear wheels. I posted the rear and front axles before. The fifth wheel coupling is adapted from @functionalTechnic Scania-inspired truck. Since I now got a rolling chassis that I'm happy with, I hope to make progress a bit faster and provide updates. Feel free to comment in the mean time; advice is always welcome too.

    [MOC] Airwolf Supercopter

    Hi all, I'm happy to present you my Airwolf 1:25 scale model ! I started this project in 2013, inspired by Lego's 9396 Technic Rescue Helicopter. Seeing its front end, I thought "at last ! It must now be possible to make a convincing Airwolf model out of Lego !". I used Technic panels to get the aerodynamic shape properly, and have had good fun since then improving the model with new parts (the curved slopes for the exhaust for example). The model is based on the Universal Studios blueprints. It accepts 3 minifigs inside - Stringfellow Hawke, Dominic Santini and Caitlin O'Shanessy. Weapons can be displayed in or out, like the landing gear - I considered making those articulated, but at this scale I just could not figure out how to do this so these are add-ons parts. At the time I wished Lego would accept it in their Ideas project, but I got a reply that "being a military vehicle, Airwolf would not be allowed Lego support". I was quite gutted and just kept it for myself. Anyway, I'm happy to share it now ! After completing my Airwolf model, I felt I needed to make a full set of toys to make it more playable. The Bell 206s are based on the factory blueprints - also at 1:25 scale - and my first version of the Jeep was loosely based on Zed's MOC Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. Since 2013 it has evolved quite a bit, though ! Also, it was good fun reproducing Archangel's limousine FIRM 1 ! As a Cadillac Seville owner in the eighties, it was nice trying to get the lines of this Fleetwood Brougham limo properly. I wish Lego would make studless wings for the front end, though !!! You will note that I could not resist creating minifigures for Archangel and his lovely bodyguards ! You might even recognise Marella and Gabrielle ;) I still feel compelled to show my models with Ukraine colours as the war is raging on. It must stop ! I remember watching Airwolf episodes where the Russians (the usual villains, the Cold War was still on) were pictured as normal people just wanting freedom and democracy. I hope this is still true ! You can see more pics Flickr album of course : I wish I could make nicer renderings, as the photos are far from perfect. But I still can't manage chrome and transparency properly with Blender. Talk about a learning curve... Anyway, I hope you will enjoy the pics !

    [MOC] Great Mazinger

    Hi all, well... Geihlen asked for a Great Mazinger after seeing my Grendizer MOC earlier, so there it is ! and in a less thunderous pose : My Flickr album is here : Enjoy !
  7. Dear all, While the news went out that lego was designing a new liebherr crawler crane, I decided immediately to build my own version, with 6 PU motors, 3 L ones and 3 XL's. the boom will have 9X9 dimension. The body uses the turntable of the 42082 rtc. Untill now the body is more or less finished, but it needs still tweaking and further adjusting while the build advances. Now I'm waiting for parts for the boom including some weights for the hook. Here are some photos, including 1 with the previous 42042 crawler crane This is an early work in progress, the cogs are better reinforced and everything is working smoothly now Here the main body is more or less finished, including cabin and ballast (2 times 9 big panels) Here is an image from behind, I used the linear actuators for support of the ballast, and to connect the ballast directly to the axle of the pulleys. I thought it looked very cool a construction like this. The batteries of the batterybox can be easily replaced (no screws). You can also see part of the drivetrain, maybe this has to be geared down a little bit more, the crane runs still a bit too fast. And last but not least a photo for compairison of scale. I hope you liked it for now, as always comments or questions are always welcome

    [MOC] Getter 1

    Hi all, I'm still working on my "Lego Nagai" collection, this time I've prototyped my version of Getter 1, another 70's super robot originally designed by Go Nagai of Mazinger / Grendizer / Cutey Honey / Devilman fame. The cartoon showed three jets that could combine, and according to the combining order, the resulting robot would be more suited to certain tasks. The transformation is practically impossible in real life so I've skipped the possibility with my 20cm figure. But I might still work on Getter 2 and 3 when the mood takes me ! Here are some pics : I tried and built a version with a more rounded face and more "holes", as in the original cartoon (for robot's eyes and pilot's cockpit) but the robot ended up looking like an ugly machine from Matrix, so I came back to my semi-cyclops 4-petal plate ! And a special version to say "enough with war !" - Getter is not carrying his "Getter Tomahawk" club / axe this time : The Flickr album is here : Hope you like it. Enjoy !

    My LEGO Daily Planet MOC

    For the past few months I’ve been working on a LEGO modular Daily Planet in my spare time, and I wanted to share it with everyone here. This is also my first "real" post (I only recently joined) so it's highly probable I'm gonna screw this up because, well, I'm an idiot. Please be gentle, and if this is the wrong place I do apologize. I host the images on my own site because I'm given to understand that Eurobricks doesn't host images, so I hope I've done that correctly as well. Anyway, on to the model. It has 4 floors plus an accessible roof, and currently consists of 5,894 LEGO pieces. At the outset I started tracking my time and it also represents about 325 hours of work all done in Bricklink Studio. When I got the idea, I formulated a list of some things I wanted it to have: Large globe on top The “stairstep” look from the comics The lobby globe like was shown in the 1978 movie Face-to-face desks in the “bullpen” for Lois and Clark. Lois’ desk would be a big ol’ mess with a hairbrush, food, and crumpled papers next to the waste basket, while Clark’s desk is neat as a pin. Because we’re big Smallville fans and so many fun moments took place there, the model also features roof access where Lois can go to smoke or take a ride with Big Blue, and includes the roof access structure where Clark (finally) took flight in the finale of Smallville. A copy machine/room Break room Janitor closet for Clark to change in Perry White’s office Desk for Jimmy Office details like water coolers A store room with boxes of papers You can probably see that I've iterated the outside colors, and very significantly changed the uppermost floor to no longer have windows but rather a large clock. The reason was two-fold; first I thought it looked kind of cool that way, and I wanted to motorize the large globe on top to turn (and have a Superman minifigure flying around it. And just for fun, I couldn't resist photoshopping Superman into one of the renders. So there you have it. I make updates to the model fairly frequently and will make updates here if there's interest. Here's a few more images:

    An Excess of X-Wings!

    When I was a kid wasting time browsing Brickshelf, I always liked X-wings most. I had a mental list of custom X-wings I liked best and I wanted an X-wing just like them. But I wasn't willing to break up my sets to make a custom X-wing like the amazing ones on Brickshelf, so I never got one. As an adult wasting time browsing Flickr, I always like X-wings most. I have a mental list of custom X-wings I like best and I want an X-wing just like them. But I'm not willing to break up my sets to make a custom X-wing like the amazing ones on Flickr, so I'm never going to get one. Oh, what the heck. It's been 20 years now that I've wanted a super awesome custom X-wing so I should just go ahead and get one. I'm an adult now. I don't need to ask anybody's permission, I should just do it. Show that I can get something done in my life, even if it's as unimportant in the grand scheme of things as a silly little Lego build. But there are so many good ones! How can I pick just one! Obviously I should make my own custom design that takes all the best parts of the best models and corrects the worst parts. But that would take a LOT of hard work and trial and error ... a friend of mine built his very own custom X-wing design in 2018 and it consumed him for months. So, like a fool, I spent money instead of time (though time is money) and just, um, built them all. (Though I'd note that there are at least a dozen more great X-wings on the internet that I'd also like to build .... ) Full Flickr album here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/149520828@N02/albums/72177720298365006. I apologize for the bad photography, I don't have a light box or a nice place to take pictures outside. My very own little T-65 X-wing, based on a childhood makeshift (1998ish, 2021) This one is an idealization of the makeshift X-wing I built as a little kid without a lot of parts, either before or shortly after the first set came out. I remember using the 4x9 wedge plate in red to form the nose, and using that shape of windscreen in trans-light blue with that top hatch, and that I used 2x6 plates for the wings. This takes the concept of that old childhood build and makes it like an actual retail set. It's about the same size as the 4+ X-wing sets, though not quite as simple. My very own design for a T-65 X-wing retail set circa 1983 This one is all mine! It bears no debt whatsoever to any other X-wing ever made. It's my impression of what an X-wing set would have looked like if it had been released in 1983 to tie in with Return of the Jedi, instead of in 1999 to tie in with The Phantom Menace. Some molds come from as late as 1987, but it seems fair to me to imagine those molds being made in 1983 for this set, since the 1999 set used an awful lot of new molds. The canopy uses sticker strips cut from unused sticker sheets. I really like the brick-built R2-D2. The contemporary finger hinges are too weak to hold the wings up or down on their own, so pneumatic tees are connected to modified plates and sandwiched between 4x1 hinge plate assemblies. They swing in and prop the wings apart when they're open, and rails near the top and bottom of the aft fuselage prevent the wings from opening too far. A 2x2 plate at the base of each lower wing provides enough clutch power to keep the wings together and level when they're closed, but not so much that the wings are hard to open. Like any 1983 set, this uses the Classic Space landing legs, and the contemporary Classic Space canopy works really well for the X-wing - so well that Dan Nelson used it independently in 1997 and Mike Psiaki used it again in 2011. This is much smaller than most custom X-wings, but it's still a very substantial size for swooshing and play, and it feels like a good size relative to the minifig. It's got a spacious cockpit and it's easy to get the pilot and droid in and out. It's also very close to the size of contemporary Lego spaceships in 1983, 1985, and 1987, so it's not too large to imagine as a 1983 set. So yeah - there are many custom X-wings out there, and this is my humble contribution to the field! Dan Nelson T-65, 1997 This is actually 98% My Own Creation, but I'm crediting Dan Nelson because it's heavily inspired by Dan Nelson's childhood makeshift X-wing circa 1997. This is my imagination for what an X-wing set would look like circa 1997 if it had been released to tie in with the Special Edition movies rather than with The Phantom Menace. I've swapped out some old molds that are now very expensive on Bricklink for their modern counterparts - which mostly means swapping finger hinges for modern 3.18mm clip hinges. I really like the brick-built R2-D2. There's room for storage accessed from a hatch on the rear fuselage step, like in Dan Nelson's version - a rare feature in custom X-wings. The canopy framing is white strips cut from unused sticker sheets. Mark Chan T-65, 2001 Back in the old days of Brickshelf, when the world was young, this was an X-wing I really admired. I still think it's pretty neat, nice and sturdy and detailed, but its proportions are a bit off. As with all the other X-wings, I've swapped some old molds for new ones in this build. Mark Chan posted an all-new fully modern X-wing to Flickr in 2018, but I actually don't particularly like that one, so I made no effort to copy it. Niko T-65, 2003 This one is a very lightweight and simple X-wing, mainly notable for not having upside-down lower wings. The proportions are bad and it can't fit a complete droid, but it's lightweight and sturdy, so it's good for swooshing. It's notable that Mark Chan, Niko, and Bruce Lowell all posted their X-wings with simple nose taper before Lego released the set 4502 with simple nose taper, just as fan-built X-wings used 4w cylinders for the engines long before Lego finally used them in set 75218 in 2018. Bruce Lowell T-65, 2003 Back when Brickshelf was the leading place on the internet to post your Lego creations, before Bricklink was as useful and well known as it is today, Bruce Lowell's X-wing was the best! It was copied as widely in its day as Mike Psiaki, Tom Loftus (Inthert), or Jerac's X-wings have been, in no small part because like them, Bruce Lowell posted step-by-step instructions for how to build it. For instance, David Low's excellent "Minifig Collector Scale" X-wing from 2006 is, upon close inspection, a lightly modified Bruce Lowell, so I chose not to build that one. This one is bigger than Mark Chan and Niko's X-wings, but not quite as big as Brian Tobin's, and smaller than any modern X-wing. The build is very sturdy and has excellent proportions and detail. The hexagonal profile and detailed greebling of the aft fuselage was unsurpassed for eight years, until Mike Psiaki posted his famous X-wing in 2011. As with other old X-wings in this collection, I've swapped some old molds for new ones. The problem with this X-wing is the wing opening geometry - opposite wings don't line up very well, so it's not a very convincing X. Brian Tobin T-65v3, 2004 Brian Tobin continuously upgraded his childhood makeshift X-wing from 1983 until 2001, but never managed to get the wings to actually open! His is the most prominent old "big" X-wing I can find pictures for on the internet. The last Brian Tobin X-wing was this one, which was heavily inspired by set 4502. As with other X-wings in this album, I've swapped out some old molds for new ones. I've also included a very large cargo space behind the seat for Luke's Dagobah camping gear, which is a rare feature for custom X-wings. The problem with this model is that the wing geometry is altered from the 4502 set such that it no longer works! The wing jacks get caught on the engine cylinder pieces and are unable to open the wings. You have to open the wings manually and rotate the wing jacks between them. Also, the rubber bands aren't strong enough to hold the wings open and closed with this geometry, so the wings flop about a lot. I copied the geometry faithfully though, so I guess Brian Tobin's build must have had the same problem. Despite its flaws, Brian Tobin's X-wing was one of the best on the internet between 2004 and 2011. This is the largest of the pre-2016 X-wings, but still smaller than any modern X-wing. Mike Psiaki T-65v3, 2011 When this X-wing appeared in 2011, it made an earthquake in the AFOL community. It wasn't the first X-wing with true center-pivot wings, but it was the first one to have true center-pivot wings and complex nose taper, and its use of the old Classic Space canopy was ingenious. Thanks to Mike Psiaki's generous posting of full instructions on Brickshelf, this was the most widely copied X-wing from 2011 to 2016. Various adaptations used the windscreen from set 7140 or the windscreen from set 75102, or turned it into a T-70. It's a little smaller than modern X-wings of the latest generation. The canopy uses strips of white sticker material cut from unused sticker sheets. Unfortunately, the nose is a little fragile. The geometry isn't exact, so it takes a little persuasion to stay there. I don't think anybody is building Psiaki X-wings anymore: the key parts for the build, the hinge plates that form the side of the nose, cost me $6 each on Bricklink. Ouch! Jerac T-65v1, 2018 Jerac's original T-65 has set the standard for the last four years, with good reason. Although it's fragile during construction, it knits together very well and is surprisingly sturdy afterwards - except for the lower aft fuselage step and the 4w engine cylinders. Unfortunately, the lower aft fuselage step is so fragile that it's hard to grip the model near the center of gravity, and the 4w engine cylinders have such a fragile connection that you can't open the wings to their full range of motion without having one or more engine cylinders pop off. (I can't anyway.). The greebling on top of the aft fuselage leaves something to be desired too. It's so shallow that I don't find it very convincing. The retractable landing gear works well, but the hinges are inadequately supported and prone to detaching unless treated very gingerly, and it's a bit tricky to reattach them. Koen Zwanenburg T-65, 2019 Koen Zwanenburg posted the Studio file for this on Eurobricks for a few days, but he removed it after Brick Vault complained that he was affecting their sales of the instructions for Jerac's 2018 version. In fact, the build is completely different. The brick built Red 5 stripes on the wings are excellent. The 4w engine cylinder mounts are much improved, so the wings can be opened to their full extent, which is wider than on the Jerac model, without losing anything. The aft fuselage profile is a much nicer hexagon. The lower aft fuselage and aft fuselage step are much stronger than on the Jerac model, but at the cost of losing the nice SNOT tiled underside. The landing gear doors are simpler and theoretically stronger, but I still end up having to take them off any time I want to get the landing gear out, so it doesn't actually end up much better than the Jerac model in that respect. The nose construction is much simplified, with no attempt at achieving the subtle bank of the sides; instead, they're straight vertical. The nose cone isn't attached to the nose side panels with Mixel joints as in the Jerac model, but is mounted on a rigid pole extended from the cockpit. This theoretically should make the structure simpler and stronger, but in practice it makes it much harder to assemble and much more fragile when assembled, because the parts remain under high stress rather than having flexible joints that accomodate the stress. The big cylindrical bases of the wing guns are modified from Marshal Banana's modified Jerac X-wing. Chris Ehnot T-65v3, 2020 After Tom Loftus's (Inthert's) revolutionary T-65v2 in 2016, Chris Ehnot was the first to post a fully modern X-wing with the windscreen from 75102, paneled/tiled nose sides, and 4w engine cylinders. He revised his build over three years - this is copied from his version 3, posted in 2020. Like Koen Zwanenburg's model, this one has wings that open wider than Jerac's without popping off the engine cylinders. Though it looks similar externally, the build is completely different than in Jerac v1, Jerac v2, or Koen Zwanenburg. It's distinguished by several subtleties of shape compared to those. Baby bows are used on the bottom of the fuselage to suggest the subtle angles on the bottom, where the filming model is in fact not flat. The wedges beside the engine cylinders are more smoothly integrated into the wing and have a subtle edge above the plane of the wing as on the filming model. Behind the engines, there are the little jigsaw-tabs that are almost always omitted on custom X-wings. The upper aft fuselage has a nice depth of greebling, and has the small, limited 45-degree sloped edge that characterizes the original ANH filming models, but which is lacking from the full-size model used in the ESB Dagobah crash scene and from the Special Edition CGI models. Because Chris Ehnot's model has no rear landing gear, it can have four complete engine cylinders for a better look underneath. The modeling that connects and smooths the junction of the aft fuselage and nose is very detailed and subtle. Unfortunately, this is also the most fragile X-wing model in the collection, such that it can hardly be touched in order to take photographs. Jerac T-65v2, 2022 Jerac's T-65v2 is the best X-wing of the lot. It's amazingly sturdy, unlike all the other fully modern X-wings with the post-2015 canopy part and 4w engine cylinders, and easy to build too. The nose knits together very well, and the line of panels on the side is completely level and unstepped, unlike on the Jerac T-65v1, the Koen Zwanenburg, and the Chris Ehnot models. The worm gear box is amazing. It holds the wings steady as a rock when open and when closed. The back engine extensions are held on very steady. The Ninjago sais and candles work very well to simulate the flashback suppressors at the tips of the laser cannons and the varying diameter of the gun barrels. It's easier to get the pilot in and out than on the previous model, and the droid. The bottom of the forward fuselage is covered better than on the old model. Most importantly, the aft fuselage step, which was previously very fragile, is now much simplified and completely solid, and the 4w engine cylinders, which previously popped off tremendously easy, no longer do, even though the wings open wider with the new mechanism than they did with the old version. The greebling on the top of the aft fuselage is also much improved, and there's even greebling on the sides of the fuselage between the wing jacks! Also, there's added greebling inside the wings on the engine "shadows", and representation of the "greeble panels" at two stations along the wingspan. The rear landing gear is now fully supported, so the hinges won't pop off if you press down on them too hard. While some subtleties of shape are lost on the lower aft fuselage compared to the previous version, the tailcone has the proper subtle 7-sided shape for the first time. The visible gaps on the sides of the nose cone leave something to be desired though. Jerac T-70, 2022 This is nearly unmodified from the Brick Vault instructions, with just a couple small color swaps on the nose. It's a surprisingly easy build and very sturdy. The nose knits together extremely well. The worm gear mechanism for the wings is amazing. They hold their position steady as a rock either open or closed. The visible gaps on the sides of the nose cone leave something to be desired though. All of them together! I don't have enough room to take a really well-staged fleet shot, so this will have to do.

  11. I want to build something inspired by this beast, although my yellow panel collection is rather light on, so it will be in black/LBG. Here is my progress so far: and under side shot: There is currently: 1 PU L motor for drive. 1 PU L motor for steering. And 1 PF M motor for tilting the bed using these pieces https://rebrickable.com/parts/32039/technic-axle-connector-with-axle-hole/71/ I am planning for it to powered by buwizz 3.0
  12. Hello everybody, I would like to present you my first ever architecture style MOC, that was built for our LUG's forum Architecture competition. It's called Whydooshna Metropolis, but more on that weird name later. First some shots... The biggest challenge was to find good enough amount of bricks to finish a building, as most of my inventory consists of Technic parts. I tried to use some fancy techniques but only manged to do some snot and double-oriented plates in the base plate... Regarding the buildings, I immediately decided to make fictitious skyscrapers, as it is hard enough as it is and I really admire those who are able to reproduce real buildings in such small details. Now about that weird name: Whydooshna is read in English the same as we pronounce my home time in our dialect. It is correctly written Ajdovščina, but we call it Wajdušna and if I want it to sound like we say it in English... it became Whydooshna My fellow countrymen are also fond of a joke, because we say W instead A in front of our town's name: Name three places that start with "W". -Wimbledon, Washington and Wajdušna (Whydooshna) I know... not that funny, but I guess everyone has a not-so-funny joke up his sleeve. Anyway, I hope you like my Metropolis, I apologise for the photos not being of the finest quality. Thank you for your attention and constructive criticism. I put below some more details about the creation... Best regards! Miha

    [MOC] Sabre Island Anno Domini 2021

    Ahoy! The Barracuda has set sail and Redbeard is threatening the shipping routes once again! So the Bluecoats had to up their game to protect Imperial trade. For the start they have hastily restored the tower on the Sabre Island. What do You think about their effort? I designed this MOC as a tribute to my second Pirates set, that I think I got in 1990 and loved like hell. But I also wanted it to closely match the style of the new Barracuda. I also didn't want to use too many fancy and exotic elemens but efficiently use the stuff that most of us already have in our inventories. It's not too big with 1443 elements (excluding minifigs). The build is rather sturdy (maybe except for the furniture) but it still empoys some techniques and tricks that you might find interesting. I have published the instructions on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-71657/SleeplessNight/sabre-island-anno-domini-2021 There are also a few more pictures on flickr: Stay safe and fair winds!
  14. In honor of the new "Lightyear" sets that were revealed yesterday, I decided to reveal my Space Ranger version of the spaceship in the style of PUG-Z from the old LEGO Worlds video game. I named the ship "42" in honor of the "Buzz Lightyear of Star Command" TV show's ship from twenty-two years ago (Was 2000 really THAT long ago?!?), which I watched a lot when I was younger and sadly is not streaming anywhere since Disney / Pixar have virtually disowned it. NOTES: The origin of the original ship itself is from the totally awesome (and sadly defunct) online free-roam video game LEGO Worlds, then recreated by user TOB1 and made into PDF instructions over on Rebrickable. The rear of the ship, featuring a main engine and two boosters. The landing legs can fold up for flight, as shown above. (yes, I dusted the ship after these shots... the model has been sitting on a table since December, and needed a storage bin until yesterday. I didn't think about dusting them until after taking photos. Sorry!) Buzz sits in the front to pilot, and the alien Bunny lady from Vydio will sit behind him when she gets here... I haven't figured out what she does. Scanning? navigation? weapons? Ideas would be nice, if anyone has any. Space Rangers from Left to Right: - Nic (short for Nicodemus) is a highly evolved rat with cybernetic implants for eyes because he was born blind. From a world called Thorn V.\ - Buzz Lightyear needs no introduction. - E.R.I.C. is a utility robot programed to help maintain starships. This one takes care of Buzz's rocket, 42. - Izzy Hawthorne (info redacted) - Clover comes from a world called Watership. She is an empath and can sense emotions / feelings in others. (I borrowed some characters from famous literature for the aliens: Nic is slightly based off the rat leader Nicodemus from 'Mrs. Frisby and Rats of NIMH' novel, while Clover is based (in name only) off of a character from the book 'Watership Down') Comments, suggestions, and complaints welcome. Would love to hear all you guy's thoughts on all of this!
  15. Treasure of the Spanish Plate Fleet, 1716 On July 31st, 1715 one of the wealthiest Treasure Fleets in history wrecked off the coast of Florida. Millions of Spanish coins, jewels, and other valuables littered the shallows. After months of Spanish recovery efforts a small fortune remained lightly guarded on the beach, open to anyone daring enough to steal it. In early 1716, a small group of pirates lead by Henry Jennings, Sam Bellamy, and Benjamin Hornigold raided the small Spanish garrison and made off with a haul equivalent to 10 years of wages for only a single nights 'work'. The wealth of this raid and the inspiration it provided for would-be pirates across the New World, kicked off the final stages of the Golden Age of Piracy.

    [MOC] AT-AT Walker

    Hi everyone! I haven't been here for a long time ... Over 4 months ago I started building a new MOC The idea came up a long time ago, but each time I started a different project. In October 2021 I ordered the 75288 set and I knew it was high time for my AT-AT :) AT-AT Dimensions: 4882 parts (list of parts here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1crWVI4Cygw0i5zEefJh7ClROWkN2_iGy/view?usp=sharing) 46,1 cm height, 52,1 cm lenght, 18,4 width. It is much larger than the playset 75288 but smaller than the UCS 75313. I think that for many of us this size is the perfect solution. Personally, I don't have a place for UCS at home, it's too big for me. In addition, he did not make such an impression on me live - he has too many studs :) It is possible that my design is similar in size to Raskolnikov, that is, such PlusSize. The project has a huge number of functions, I will mention some of them: - movable feet and legs - rubber bands under the feet, improve stability, - bottom with details, the possibility of attaching a rope from Luke Skywalker, - a lot of tiles on the side panels, - all side panels open to get inside, - a speeder bike stand mounted on the back, - fuel tank, - black interior trim, - a lot of control panels inside, - 2 racks for weapons, - special seats for Snowtroopers, - 2 lightbricks and a switch on the roof - movable neck - moving head - the head can be detached very easily - head interior for 3 minifigures - 20+ minifigures can be given in the entire vehicle PDF Instructions Contains 3 files, 2 are ready now - if you are intrested ask me on kozlowski.michal86@gmail.com Project will be available on Rebrickable soon! Today will be movie on my youtube where you will see all the details
  17. Given the internet's love for the misadventures of aristocrat-turned-pirate Stede Bonnet and his crew aboard the Revenge trying to make a name for themselves as pirates, I had to do a liitle MOC.
  18. For a long time I wanted to build some Rock Raider MOCs. I loved playing the game and with the sets when it was new and remember playing a lot with it and building things from the game (with the wrong colors). Sadly I never had the big sets but I did have the the Loader-Dozer and a couple of small sets so I did have most minifigs and the rock monster except the Chief. So I recently started putting some figs together and started updating them, and also added some extra characters. Rock Raiders 2.0+ by Ids, on Flickr From left to right: - Raiden (a new miner to expand the team) - Nari (a rookie engineer, helps Sparks with his tasks) - Wiz (a Zotaxian expert in energy crystals and Voltstones) - Sparks (an expert on all things mechanical and electrical) - Jet (the most courageous and strong-willed of all the Rock Raiders, she is a very skilled pilot) - Chief (the oldest, wisest and most experienced Rock Raider) - Docs (the head Geologist and Commander) - Bandit (the greatest sailor) - Axle (one of the best drivers of the team) - Rocky (a robot) - Krenxx (a demolition expert) When building the figs, I realized I had to also build some vehicle for them, for FebRovery (see also this topic: [MOC] Febrovery 2022 a story of rovers - LEGO Sci-Fi - Eurobricks Forums) I made one: FebRovery 2022 - 25 by Ids, on Flickr Heavy Tunnelator by Ids, on Flickr The search for energy crystals continues, the Heavy Tunnelator is a new Rock Raiders vehicle, the drill can be pushed out of the vehicle to drill from a safe distance. An experimental function of the vehicle is that the drill can be remotely controlled from inside the cabin, and can continue to drill without being attached to the base. And today I also finished some small ones: Rock Raider scouts by Ids, on Flickr Two small Rock Raider vehicles. Made an updated Hover Scout and a small scout rovers. Thanks for looking and let me know what you think, I will probably work on some more vehicle when I have an idea.
  19. In this topic I hope to collect all of my future mocs. I mostly build vehicles, as they are my favorite topic. I mostly build in black and orange for bodywork because I have the 42111 charger and 42093 corvette. The first moc I will share is a quick, simple pullback chassis with three pullback motors for rear wheel drive.
  20. The Ruins of Green Mire Keep I present my MOC of the ruins of an old keep. A Knight and his guards hire a local peasant to lead them to these mysterious ruins known for strange goings on. These ruins seem to have become the home of a Necromancer. Thank you for checking out my MOC!

  21. "Wrecker, easy with my ship. "Your ship?" My Midi-Scale collection expands again with this nanofig-scaled Havoc Marauder from the Bad Batch series. Despite the small size, I once again went for a full SNOT look and paid close attention to proportions of the original shuttle. The build comes with a discrete, transparent stand to be displayed in flight mode. ► Instructions for the Havoc Marauder are available on Rebrickable (163-page PDF). More pics in my Flickr Album.

    Wither Woods Windmill

    The agricultural zone of Kaliphlin may be small compared to its massive desert, but it's one of the most populous regions due to the easy availability of food. An enterprising miller has recently constructed this large mill to harness the power of the wind for grinding the region's grain. I wanted to try something with a function and a windmill seemed to hit the sweet spot of being a little complicated, but not too much for a first attempt. There's more to this than first meets the eye though. Of course the sail spin, but the whole roof can also rotate in order to catch wind coming from any angle. Here's the back of the windmill with the sails turned to the right. I had fun adding little details like sunflowers and wheat sacks. The stone base technique is also a variant on those blocks that I used for my Fighting Pit! The real challenges of the mechanism are inside of course. Connecting the vertical shaft to the horizontal (slightly angled) sails would have been pretty difficult but fortunately I remembered this worm piece which has a unique combination of an axle hole but no friction. That way the roof can be removed and replaced easily. So the whole thing is designed to come apart into these three pieces, the base with the interior, the walls, and the roof. I did a time lapse for this build just like for my Fighting Pit--and I also put it on LEGO Ideas if you'd like to support it! And as usual there are more pictures on my blog if you'd like a closer look! Hope you've enjoyed this creation, feels good to have another large build for the guilds again. I took a pretty long hiatus before the Fighting Pit I know, but hopefully there'll be more coming this year! C&C welcome! Thanks for checking it out!
  23. Hello! I'm excited to share my nearly complete MOC of HMS Diana, a fifth-rate Artois class frigate launched in 1794. I set out to make this ship as close to true minifigure scale as I could get it, and I am pleased with the result. I also wanted to improve on the design of my previous frigate in terms of achieving greater accuracy and detail. IMG_1171 by Andrew Cardy, on Flickr The ship took me over a year to design and build, which included lots of time reading up on rigging. I'll include a list of the books I read at the end of this post in case anyone is interested. I re-designed several aspects of the ship multiple times. IMG_1168 by Andrew Cardy, on Flickr IMG_1202 by Andrew Cardy, on Flickr The ship is built with 100% LEGO elements, including all of the rigging. When I began working on it I intended to make the masts and rigging the same way I did with my first frigate, but I soon realized that I could improve on that design and make it more accurate, albeit with far more pieces and many more LEGO strings. All of the standing rigging (the lines which support the masts) is included, as well as some of the running rigging. All of the spars are supported with a series of ropes, just as they would be on a real ship. The spars can all be lowered and raised using the rigging, in these photos the spars are in the raised position, where they would be when the sails were set. IMG_1161 by Andrew Cardy, on Flickr The ship is 45 inches tall at the mainmast, and 46 inches long when measured from the beakhead to the taffrail. It is 65 inches from the tip of the bowsprit to the tip of the driver boom. IMG_1166 by Andrew Cardy, on Flickr IMG_1197 by Andrew Cardy, on Flickr Click the album for more detailed pictures, it was difficult to get some decent shots with the entire ship in frame but I did my best! Some books I read: Mondfeld, Wolfram zu. Historic Ship Models. New York: Sterling Publishing Company Incorporated, 1977. Ball, Nick, and Simon Stephens. Navy Board Ship Models. Barnsley: Seaforth Publishing, 2018. Petersson, Lennarth. Rigging Period Ship Models: A Step-by-Step Guide to the Intricacies of Square-Rig. London: Chatham Publishing, 2000. Lavery, Brian. The Arming and Fitting of English Ships of War: 1600-1815, n.d. Anderson, R.C. The Rigging of Ships in the Days of the Spritsail Topmast, 1600-1720. New York: Dover Publishing Inc., 1994. Lavery, Brian. The Ship of the Line: A History in Ship Models. Barnsley: Seaforth Publishing, 2014. I also used the Anatomy of the Ship series extensively, especially the one about HMS Diana of course, but also several of the other entries in that series. I hope you all enjoy the model and let me know what you think of it!
