  1. MOC: Imperial Shuttle

    This is my upscale Imperial Shuttle, not quite mini figure scale, but close. I have finally built it after my original UCS set was in many pieces, something i regret not finishing as i was going through my "lego dark age" when i received it. The shuttle can fit one figure in the head and around 6 in the main body. The ramp extends down and has enough headspace for a mini figure to stand under it. The landing gear is retractable, and can also be mounted on a stand. The only issue with this design is that i underestimated the strength of the gear system. The wings are heavier then expected, thus the gear box can't lower and raise the wings with out carful assistance. It is strong enough to hold the wings in place, however. Perhaps when i feel brave in the future i will modify it and add an extra 2 gear boxes to strengthen it. More photos on my Flickr.

  3. Greetings, adventurers! This is my entry for the 60th Anniversary of the Brick contest on Brickset, a microscale version of the classic Adventurers set 5988 The Temple of Anubis. Here is a picture of the original set for comparison: Here is a closer look at some of the more detailed parts of the set such as one of the Anubis statues, the truck, and the hot air balloon. I hope you like it and keep on adventuring!
  4. Recently I was in the mood to build stuff in space theme. Professionally speaking it's called Neo-Classic Space ;) It means that MOC is referring to the series of LEGO sets from the 80s but with the usage of newer bricks and more modern design.

  5. (07-03-2013) I've redone the photographs with a white(ish) background. This should show the model more clearly. Hope you like! Hi all! I'm diving deeper into Star Wars starfighter obscurity with this very niche model. The Missile Boat only appeared in a handful of Star Wars games (like the extended edition Tie Fighter and X-Wing Alliance). Oddly enough, after making my Star Wing/Assault Gunboat known to the public I've gotten requests to do the Missile Boat next (more than one even). So here it is! Not a render: a real brick build ship! As always: it's buildable (duh), in minifig scale, (almost) no rare parts and no flick-fire missiles. And unlike my first MOC (the Star Wing), this one is rock solid from the get go! Seriously, it's smaller than the Star Wing, but still weighs about the same. It's very sturdy and swooshable. TL;DR: model files are at the end(ish) of the post. For those unfamiliar with the craft (which is probably 99% of you ) The Missile Boat was an advanced Imperial starfighter designed by Admiral Thrawn and built by Cygnus Spaceworks. Designed as a countermeasure against the rogue Grand Admiral Demetrius Zaarin and his supply of TIE Defenders, the Missile Boat was a descendant of the Alpha-class Xg-1 Star Wing, also manufactured by Cygnus Spaceworks. The Missile Boat relied primarily on warheads for dogfighting and assaults, a notable difference from other Imperial starfighters, which relied more heavily on laser cannons. The Missile Boat also included an innovative propulsion feature known as the SubLight Acceleration Motor (SLAM). (source: Wookieepedia) And there you have it. Finding source material was even harder than for the Star Wing as the craft only makes its appearance in two games. To make it even more challenging, the models differ greatly between the two games. Oddly enough the X-Wing Alliance Update project also did their (rather excellent) version, which is also diffent. I've included a comparison below. What can I say? I like a challenge! These images and the fact that it's supposed to be 10m long (about 32 studs in minifig scale) was what I got to work with, so I've taken a few liberties as well. Luckily, there are a number of similarities between the craft, like the way the wings are angled, the missilepods on top, big rear engines, narrow(ish) cockpit. I've tried to use similar techniques to the Star Wing; as they are related, it should show. Here are some more views of the result. And I do apologise for my feeble photographing skills: all I had to work with were a bit of cloth, some desklamps and an old compact camera. From the front: Shot from the rear: A side view: Next to it's older brother: Lego®-vision drawing: Render of possible color variations: I'm actually rather taken with the blue one (though I build a red one as the craft in the games are all with red markings). As always, I've shared my lxf files so you can build it yourself. It's 654 pieces in total (165 unique; and that's including the mini-fig) and all can be found on bricklink in good quantities. There are a couple of things you need to mind, but I'll get to that later. Files v1.0: The model assembled v1.0 (in parts): The model broken down in main components. If you are going to build it in real bricks, I suggest you use this file as it will force LDD to generate instructions for each major component, making building easier. Building Notes As I've mentioned before: all parts should be available in good quantities. There are, unfortunately, some parts you need to mind: The Classic grey wedge 6x4; you'll need two and only the 6153a variant is available in this color (which is not in LDD; only the b-variant). There's no alternative (sorry) but the part seems to be available in good quantities. Any suggestions on how to do the nose section without this part (and dump classic grey altogether) is very much welcome. The Light Bley Brick, Modified 2 x 4 x 1 1/3 with Curved Top; it turned out to be way harder to find than I expected, but it looks good on the model. If you have trouble sourcing it, or find it too expensive, you might want to consider using only 2x1x1 1/3's instead. It might require some extra reinforcement underneat though. The Wheel 30mm D. x 13mm (13 x 24 Model Team); it's an older part (last set to feature it is C-3PO from 2001), so most likely you'll only find used ones. Do not confuse this with partno. 60208. The 2695 has a shallower rim and has rounded edges as well. You could use the 60208 (for example if you want the thrusters in dark bley) as it fits, but I personally feel that they don't look right. As with the Star Wing, I suggest that you build it in main components (grab the parts file!) and later assemble those. As always, the LDD instructions are weird and unlogical, so I suggest you spend a little time looking around the model and skipping through the instructions a couple of times just to make sure you won't have to wedge a plate inbetween two brick already there. A quick pointer while building the main hull: LDD will want you to build it in one go, but I advice you to build it in 3 seperate components. A 4-step plan below. Start with the cockpit and internal skeleton (much like the instructions) Seperately, construct the top panel To the same for the bottom panel (just follow the instructions, but don't add it on to the model) Assemble! Unpictured step: the engine part (the dark bley bits at the end) is pretty straightforward. Add it before putting the top panel on. And that should do it. Thank you for reading!
  6. As a kid growing up in Transylvania, TAF skidders built at the IRUM plant in Reghin were a mainstream sight. I was always impressed by the power of these monsters, and how they defied anything Mother Nature could throw at them: snow, ice, mud, step gradients, big logs. My machine is not a scale replica, but rather a representation of the concept, drawing inspiration from the ol' reliable TAF 690 OP, the upgraded 690 PE (with Perkins engine and electronics) and the brand new TAF 2012 (especially the G version). For all intents and purposes it's a trial truck, built for the february contest held by RoLUG, so extra-functions are rather lacking. Stats: 4x4 drive provided by 2 XL motors, geared 8.4:1 (12/20, 12/20 bevel, 8/24 portal), steering provided by 2 linear actuators powered by a geared L motor Working winch, only pulls the cable when the tractor is moving forward (hard coupled to the drivetrain of the front axle). The sole purpose of this winch is to help the skidder over obstacles or deep snow pendular front axle (realistic) blade turning with front axle (realistic) manual grabber (rather esthetic detail, easily motorisable by adding a pneumatic pump and a switch) snowchains (realistic) LEGO Custom RC forest skidder - inspired by and modelled after IRUM/MAVIPROD TAF 690 PE and TAF 2012G.

The batteries are extremely low, so the performance is lacking, especially when it's steering, but with fresh batteries i'm sure it'll perform admirably. First video before the upgrade.

  7. Minifig-scale Alpha-class Xg-1 Star Wing (06-03-2013) Small update replacing the pictures with a black background by ones with a light one. (06-03-2013) For improvement of general swooshability! I've updated the internal structure to something that is way way way more stable (I can't stress this enough). If you're thinking about building: use these new model files (2.0). Really. Throw away the old ones. The result? See? No more hanging parts and disintegrating sidepods! Much better. (02-03-2013) It's done! I've added a build report below (after the files section). You know what they say: "A bird in the hand is worth..." (01-03-2013) So it turns out that real brick building is still rather necessary if you're inexperienced with 100% from scratch MOCs: the sidepods weren't strong enough to support the wing weight, so they have been redesigned internally. Also my solution for mounting the ion cannons on the sail didn't work as well in real life as it did virtually, so that has been modified as well. I'd strongly recommend getting and using the updated model files(posted below) if you're serious about building the model. Also, expect a write up of the build soon (with pictures! ) (30-01-2013) This model is now on Cuusoo! Please consider voting for it if you want TLG to make it. Thank you! (31-01-2013) I've updated the model to v1.2. The differences are all internal; the model should be sturdier now. IMPORTANT: if you're gonna build it using LDD instructions, please consider using the model-in-parts-file. This will force LDD to generate the instructions per major component (there's 9 in total), making it much easier to build. I've also added a wallpaper-like scene at the bottom of this post! (30-01-2013) New colors and updated images! ..or better known as the assault gunboat from the X-Wing/Tie-Fighter game series (Mu 1 anyone?). You can find more background info at this Wookieepedia entry. It's one of my favorite craft from the games, but unfortunately Lego never released an official set of it so far. As this thing cannot be missing from my starfighter collection*, I fired up LDD. It's my first 100% original, from-scratch MOC. Yay! I'm not really sure if I feel this model is done: I'm starting to suffer from "model blindness". Also the fact that there doesn't seem to be a definitive model of the Star Wing in the lore doesn't help. It's not even in the Essential Guide To Vehicles and Vessels. The model is rather bleyish, but for the love of me, I couldn't figure out a color scheme. I've included the LDD model below if you want to have a go at it, though I suppose most imperial craft are bleyish. So I'm hoping that you guys and gals can comment on whether or not I've done a decent job so far. Here are pictures so you can make your mind up (or you can just download the model file below). (minifig included for size) Some background info TL;DR: keep scrolling! The files are down below According to the lore, this ship is 10 meters long, 15.1 wide and 7.2 high. If my calculations are correct, that translates to 32x48x23 studs (about scale 1:40ish, which is minifig-scale). I believe the model is about that size (anyone got ideas on how to measure models?). It has 689 pieces of which none are rare according to LDD Manager. The model features foldable wings as well as landing gear and holds true to my "no flick-fire missiles in my house" policy. The ion cannons on the dorsal fin can rotate. There's a cockpit and the pilot has a chair. Because there are two technics axles running through the model (they connect the pods), it should be stable and probably quite swooshable. I won't find out until I build it of course (which may take a while since building the B-Wing burned through my budget rather quickly). If anyone has a better idea on how to construct the cockpit with these angles, please let me know. At first I used transparent panels on the sides of the cockpit, but they gave me design headaches up to the point where I was tempted to cut off the top bit (with the studs) from the panels to give the pilot some more room and raise him a bit so he can see outside the window properly. This is why I went with the small panel / transparent plate setup. I wanted to use this Windscreen 3x4x3 as it was the only one that kind of matched the angles I was looking for (when you use it on its side anyway). Files The main model file: v2.0 Model in parts (for building instructions): v2.0 (in parts) Play around with it. Maybe one of you can come up with a color scheme. Let me know what you think (31-01-2013) Here's a group of Star Wings patrolling around an ISD (click for big). *See my B-Wing MOC post: I collect starfighters from the X-Wing/Tie Fighter game series in minifig-scale. The Build I've finally managed to real-brick build the model! So here she is: Turns out that although building with virtual bricks gives you a lot of freedom to experiment, there is no substitute for real-brick building. In this paragraph I shall share some things I've experienced while converting my virtual model to something real. First problem I had was with the ion canons on the sail. Turns out my old grey frictionless pins are not fond of jamming bars in them. So I've opted for the solution shown below (which still looks rather neat). Then there was my "ingenious" solution for mounting these two canons really low and close to the sail. The original plan was to use a brick with an axle cross and jam the pneumatic "T" pieces in there, which oughta fit according to LDD. Turns out, they don't. Well, they fit, but (probably due to wear or tolerance) the brick doesn't hold them properly. Below you see the more standard solution for the problem. Note that in the new model file it is done slightly different, which you can also see in the first picture in this post. And then there was sidepod stability... my biggest problem (as I had predicted and feared). My original design turned out to be very fragile. As the picture below illustrates: just the weight of the main wing was already enough to have the assembly split and come apart (notice the black gap in the middle grey part). I've come up with a redesign that kind of works (I'll get to that in a minute). This is the main reason why, if you have already downloaded a model file and intend to build this thing, you should get the updated model files I've posted here. The version number should be 1.5. Unfortunately, that rework of the sidepods didn't stop the axles that connect them to the main hull from bending. The result of that is a model that looks like Star-Wars-meets-Salvador-Dali (apologies for the slightly blurry picture). I've already modified the main hull so that a pair of extra axles is present near the read. This helps, but doesn't stop the hanging. I'm afraid that if I want to make is internally strong enough, I've got to go with an entirely different solution. Probably lose the axles and use beams/thick liftarms instead. I might play with that after I'm done building my Missile Boat (coming soon ). The solution I'm using at the moment to combat the hanging is simple: support the sidepods! As you can see, I've used a 1x16 technics brick and it works really well. Ideally, one would use a 1x14 brick, but I don't have one. Sure, the stand is a bit bulky, but nothing I'm currently annoyed with. So it suffices for now. Other than these issues, the build went rather smooth. I was particularly happy with the sides of the nose: they are much sturdier than I expected, allowing me to remove one of the 4 connection points so I could make the internal cockpit a bit sturdier. I'm happy with how big it turned out; getting a sense of scale is always difficult when you work digitally. I hope you've enjoyed my little report and good luck if you attempt to build this!

    She has changed her style.
  9. I’ve been busy with this little guy since I saw the leaked Solo poster, the one with the four characters and the tiny, pixelated hint of the new Falcon to one side. At first didn’t like the look of the new Falcon in that leaked Lego set image but on the poster it reminded me of the ship from Flight of The Navigator, and who doesn’t love that! But I guess if you’re going to mess with an icon you’ve got to do a really good job, we’ll find out soon enough how popular it is but I think this could look pretty sleek in the film. However they explain away the change of shape I took it as something bolted on the front (or just there originally and eventually removed) that is more or less a spoiler with a really nice GPS. I've always wanted to make a mini Falcon using the cockpit from the micro fighter and here it is. The gps-spoiler just slots in, so apart from the colours and dish it’s a quick job to change it between its original and Kessel Run look. I built the top and bottom separately, studs-out so I could add those Tie cockpit turrets (big thanks to RickJockey whose idea I’ve shamelessly pinched!) but I think it adds to the rounded the shape overall and turned out to be a neat and solid way to build anyway. I was really pleased with finding the 90’s octagonal slope part which I originally just bought in dark grey because it was really cheap, but last week I discovered that there’s only one person on Bricklink selling it in light grey and they won’t take orders for less than £100, so annoyingly the dark part stands out a bit. If anyone’s got any suggestions for different ways of building the tunnel I’d be grateful to hear them, otherwise it will just be great to hear what you think of the MOC!
  10. [MOC] Lego BR class 08 diesel shunter

    This is a Lego BR class 08 diesel shunter I built over the period of three days. It's built off of a train base design I made awhile back that uses the PF train motor with a third wheel set attached to the motor. Here's the train base with the cabin and front removed. The front detaches easily allowing easy access to the battery. And finally here's the motor base itself. (Note) It's important that the third wheel set be assembled by cutting a length of flexible 318 tubing (my digital caliber says 1.35 inches long), slipping it over the metal train axle, slip on two 1x2 technic bricks with stud pins in them, and finally attach the train wheels. This assembly removes any free play which allows the train to enter switches without derailing. Thanks for looking! Comments and opinions are always appreciated! Cheers LMF
  11. This is the second mod I have done to Lego's 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS set. I used the same height lift as I used on my previous Porsche mod and moved forward the bottom arms in the front and the rear of the chassis to add negative camber. The car was able to roll without the body on, but once I put it on, it couldn't roll. This means the car is now purely a display model. As much as a JDM fanboy I am, I'm kind of upset with the result of the car not moving, but at least I'm glad that I stanced this car anyways just for the fun of it. Although, quote automotive YouTuber GasKings, the camber angle does seem a bit too much on here like "a baby giraffe taking its first steps." So, what do you think of this mod I have done? Is it CamberGang worthy? I think it looks neat, but I would like to get rid of the camber (and the height lift) so I can roll this car around again. Here's some more pictures of the car I took. Thanks as always for checking this out, and I hope you'll stick around for my next builds.
  12. Hi Guys, just signed up Eurobricks, I am not new to this website though. But glad to be able to discuss and share with lego builders around the world :) Here is my recent work, a transformer (actually it is more like an animation )check out and give me some feedback :) Axcavator - Lego Transformer by David vc, on Flickr
  13. Finally, an official addition to your Rebel Fleet is here! After over a year of tweaks and specifics, mortesv's CR-90 Corvette is officially ready to be released to the public! The MOC itself contains 2,808 parts, and its manual is 133 pages long. The MOC is built to the same scale as the Nebulon-B, making a perfect addition to a rebel fleet. Lots of interest has been generated for this MOC, and mortesv and I are really glad to make its release to the community! Looking forward to seeing all of the improved fleets as well as those that will begin with this ship. If you would like to build this MOC, we are happy to share it with you in exchange for $30. Included is the pdf instruction manual, an xml part list, LDD files, and any help you need throughout the process of making the MOC. For more information please PM me or contact me at A rebrickable page will be available soon, but for now the xml part list will be included Here are some pictures of the MOC and of the pdf manual:–-blockade-runner-tantive-iv/
  14. Bat Wolf, the chopper seen in the Lego Batman Movie, it first appeared when Robin managed to sneak into the Bat Cave, and appeared again around the 1 hr 05 min mark in the movie. Its image is also included in the LEGO® BATMAN MOVIE: The Making of the Movie book. Its not a very accurate build as my only reference was still images from the movie, so I went for simple, straight-forward building technics for this chopper :) Regards, KMP
  15. [MOC] UCS Zeta-class cargo shuttle

    Greetings everyone! After a couple of months work I am proud to present my minifigure scale Zeta-class cargo shuttle. “Manufactured by Telgorn Corporation with Sienar Fleet Systems, the Zeta-class shuttle carries a modular ‘interstellar orange’ cargo pod for versatility mounted on a 35.5m length frame.” Ever since Rogue One introduced the design, the industrial mining tug aesthetic appealed to me. It has the kit-bashed sensibility that I love in Star Wars, so I set about a UCS sized build. The lower cargo deck has space for troops and features a communications patch bay. I’m still working on finishing touches to the upper deck, but it houses the two seat command console and aft tech station. The gearing mechanism from 10212 locks the wings upright. By simply lifting the top deck away I can adjust the angle if required. The wingspan measures 1.15m, so I have yet to find space to photograph the wings in flight mode! During construction I used LDD for rapid prototyping. I still need to update the final build into the program, but the current ballpark is 4000 pieces. The Rogue One ultimate visual guide and Battlefront Scarif DLC were invaluable for determining the proportions. My personal technique for ‘minifigure scale’ is to calculate in-universe size against stud length. Small craft like speeders and skimmers skew towards 4.0s/m, starfighters 3.5s/m and large craft (e.g. UCS Slave 1 and Lambda shuttle) at 2.7s/m. Therefore I aimed for 92s long and 75s high. The final model measures 88s (l) 70s (h) 48s (w) / 70cm (l) 56cm (h) 38cm (w). Finally I threw together a Scarif landing pad for a diorama. Hope you all like it! (Link to the flickr album is here.)
  16. This is my creation of Westeros where the epic fantasy saga “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R. R. Martin and the HBO show “Game Of Thrones” mainly take place. The project fits in the Architecture Skyline theme. I recreated six of the most important locations of the show, going from south to north: Sunspear – The seat of House Martell and the capital of Dorne King's Landing – The capital of the Seven Kingdoms Pyke – The seat of House Greyjoy The Twins – The seat of House Frey Winterfell – The seat of House Stark, is considered to be the capital of the North The Wall – The massive barrier of mostly ice stretching across the northern border of the Seven Kingdoms, defending the realm from the wildlings who live beyond Total parts: 442 Measures: 44 x 8 x 10 studs 35,5 x 7 x 8 cm 14 2,8 3,2 inches More images on Flickr Album with details on single location.

  17. [MOC] A Summer In Tuscany

    A Summer In Tuscany Hello guys! I've been fairly present in the forums lately, but haven't released a MOC in about seven months, so it's about time! A Summer In Tuscany by Pau Padrós, en Flickr This is “A Summer in Tuscany”, packing 4497 pieces, mimicking the sizes of Assembly Square and towering 33.6 cm (13 inches) tall. There’s a certain je-ne-sais-quoi that some wonderful modulars capture, and I wanted to capture some of that in mine as well. What better place to look for it than Italy, then? Inspired mostly on the buildings and summery atmosphere of the Emilia-Romagna (I know the name doesn’t say that…) – Piacenza, Parma, Modena and Bologna, to name a few. A Summer In Tuscany Side by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Another point of view on the two façades. Vines climbing up walls and fences, flags being blown by the soft breeze. Gelato signorina? Have one at Giolitti! Have fun looking for references hidden throughout the whole model! PD: Genie’s lamp as decoration on the yellow building The Orange Building: A Summer In Tuscany: Orange Building by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Fun and reckless! Orange isn't the safest colour to build a modular out of, and even less when you decide to stuck a 45-degree façade on it. Nevertheless, I feel this building is the crazier part of the model and brings that needed extravaganza to make a great modular. The rooftop detailing is subtle but one of my favourites Ground Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Giolitti Gelati by Pau Padrós, en Flickr “Giolitti Gelati” has all the ice-cream flavours one can ask for: Lime, Orange, Olive Pistachio Green or Flame Vanilla Yellow, all wordplays on Lego colour names. Middle Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Le Lampade di Roberto by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Roberto has any lamp you might need in stock. From a Luxo Jr. studio lamp to a cinema focus. Many of the lamps are from Lego’s official modular (not just Palace Cinema's) Top Floor: I'm sorry I didn't take a picture of this, but rendering took way too long and stopped it. Inside is a stained glass artist studio. Fairly cool, huh The Yellow Building: Didn't take a specific shot for this one, as it would be too similar to the second one. It feels like the anchor of the model. (Call me crazy for saying this), but it's the building I played it safest with -and I know it's yellow! . It works as a harmonious counterpart to the Orange building. Adding as shallow dark orange roofing is something I'd been wanting to do since I finished Italian Villa. Desires one by one fulfill themselves, don't they? Ground Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Bike Shop by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Hard at work, trying to fix a greasy bicycle. Through the back door, it leads to a little garden. He’s so concentrated in fact, he hasn’t seen somebody peeking through the window… The same "somebody" who's been secretly placing flowers on the man's outiside bicycles! Middle Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Puppet Theatre by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Shush! The play is about to start. Suitable for kids and adults alike. Curtains closed, phones off. Oh! Forgot we're not in the present! Top Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Astronomers' Club by Pau Padrós, en Flickr As night falls and stars start sprinkling all around the sky, seeing planets is the new black for our ABS friends! One final picture: A Summer In Tuscany's Best Friends by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Magic Shop and Sweets & Co. hugging their new friend and compainion to the modular street. Hope you enjoyed my little tour around my newest model. Drop in any comments (hopefully praises ) or dislikings, of course if you feel like so. Thanks again, have a very very nice day wherever you are in our wounderful world!
  18. Hey I'm working on a MOC of The Mole from Thunderbirds in LDD and I need help with a few parts of it like a sliding mechanism for the drill itself and to make the hull round. I've seen a lot of great cylinder techniques that I could use for the hull but all of them were either too fragile, you couldn't make gaps in them for the tracks and sliding mechanism (yes there are tracks on the base as well, take another look) or not hollowed out, which is a problem for me cause I want it to have an interior. also I could use some help with the frames of the chassis and base, not to mention the part with all the crossbars which carries the drill. if you're unfamiliar with what this thing even is then here EDIT: Also I need help with a sliding door for the interior of The Firefly (another vehicle from Thunderbirds), the wall needs to be like 3 plates thick with the studs hanging off the sides and for the door itself to be 1 plate thick
  19. I just thought that I'd share a bit of a different MOC with you guys. Here's my Wayne Manor Exterior MOC I created. I felt like the front was just lacking and it needed more so here we go:
  20. I've already posted these builds separately on AG and SoNE, but I wanted to show them together and as we displayed them at BrickUniverse. These four sections are my attempt to make Star Wars modular buildings a thing. Join our Flickr group if you have modular builds you'd like to share, too - Modular Sci-Fi Jedha Dark Red 1 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr Jedha Medium Dark Flesh 1 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr Jedha Medium Azure 1 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr Jedha Market 1 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr The rest of the build (temple, tank, carts, and eastern buildings) was done by Dwight Neal, a fellow DFWLUG member. Jedha 2.0 BrickUniverse OKC by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr Jedha 2.0 BrickUniverse OKC by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr We've been working on this collab since some of the first trailers came out last September, starting with Dwight's tank and street, Dwight's Jedha by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr displaying the first version of it in December for BrickUniverse Dallas. Rogue One - Jedha - BrickUniverse Fair Park 2016 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr Rogue One - Jedha - BrickUniverse Fair Park 2016 by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr My sections changed quite a bit between Dallas and OKC to make it a 360 build and our layout changed to accommodate Dwight's new Jedha temple. Once we get the blurays I'm sure we'll change/add some more. Feel free to post screenshots of architectural details on Jedha. Again, we'll be displaying it next at BrickFiesta in Mesquite, TX June 29-July 2, which is an AFOL focused convention with a lot of potential for growth. If you can make it, let me know so we can meet up and talk Star Wars MOCs.
  21. After taking a shot at creating a couple of 9-wide 2017 F1 cars, I though it would be fun to turn the clock back 50 years… to 1967. The cars back then were incredibly dangerous mid-engine-missiles, but I have been a fan of their classic look and simplicity for a long time. I made an effort to recreate one in 8-wide LEGO as a kid, but I was never fully satisfied with the results. Today I’ve started all over with new designs, and I’ve done my best to capture some key details that made these cars look so distinct. I present to you the Ferrari 312 vs. the Lotus 49. ^ And here they are! The yellow racing livery on the nose of the Lotus is made up of five individual custom stickers, and nothing is folded. I felt there were no attractive options for brick-built livery, plus I knew I’d have to make stickers regardless for the racing numbers, “TEAM LOTUS” logos, etc. ^ The ’67 Ferrari 312 is one of my absolute F1 favorites, producing what is perhaps my favorite engine sound of all time. It was featured prominently in that Ferrari/Shell V-power commercial showcasing a variety of Ferrari’s Grand Prix machines. ^ The iconic Lotus 49 was easily the fastest F1 car in ’67, but arguably lost the championship because it… broke a lot. Still, with the innovation of bolting the engine directly to the chassis to act as part of the car’s structure, Lotus effectively changed the sport. ^ The raised lip surrounding the cockpit is, in my opinion, an important aspect of these classic cars’ look. I tried several ideas for capturing it before settling on this one. ^ The sections of the Lotus’ low lying exhaust pipes seen beneath the rear axle are actually attached separately from the rest of the pipes seen in the rear, using minifigure “Tool Box Wrench” pieces. ^ These two models, like their real life counterparts, differ most visibly in shape towards the rear. While there was no way to capture every detail in this scale, I did my best to approximate the distinct look of each car. The Ferrari’s 3-litre V12 engine is very different from the Lotus’ famous Cosworth DFV V8. ^ Note that the rear tyres are wider than the fronts, just like the real cars. Those older LEGO tyres actually fit perfectly on the newer Speed Champions wheels, which really worked great for these MOCs. ^ These classic cars are essentially in scale with both of the 2017 F1 cars I built a little while ago. The wheelbase of this Ferrari 312 is just over 2/3rds the length of the wheelbase on the Ferrari SF70H, which is accurate! The 2017 cars are also a bit wider than the 1967 cars (9-wide vs. 8-wide), which is also just about right. ^ While full minifigures can’t fit in the cars’ narrow cockpits, it is possible to build “drivers” using minifig heads on 1x1 bricks with a round 1x1 plates underneath. They may look like bizarre board game pieces on their own, but they work well inside the cars for display. Thanks for taking a moment to look at my MOCs! I've also posted this on MOCpages (link), and larger images can be found on my Flickr page (link). Comments and feedback are always appreciated.
  22. Hello, I always wanted to have a LEGO train as a kid and in (I think) 2008 I bought 7897 passenger train. But because I always wanted cargo train and as I have nicer looking 60051 I decided to rebuild 7897. I tried few times to find any inspiration as the 7897 has specific train base (6x30) but I started to believe that nobody wanted to "play" with it and couldn't find any MOCs. So I tried to create some kind of clone of BNSF loco, but let me say that it is the beginning I hope :) Anyway I am sharing my progress so far and would love to see your creations/modifications to either my creature or your own with 7897 train base. Pls, feel free to download LDD file and modify it. train white no trainbase.lxf?dl=0 Looking fwd to see your MOCs
  23. [LDD-MOC] Battlestar Galactica

    After finishing up the in-the-brick Pegasus, I finally dusted off (virtually) the LDD design I had started on for a version of the Galactica scaled to it. All 100% my own work, this time! I originally designed the sidepods (based on the top half of the Pegasus ones) pretty quickly, but then got so hung-up on the curves and ribs for the engines that I got stuck in a rut and gave up on it. When I came back to it I started at the front and worked my way back. When I got to the engines I used some of the artistic license I had learned to apply to do the missing plating/ribs, and that allowed me to push through to the end result below. She currently weighs-in at a svelte-for-her-age 3087 bricks, and according to LDCad she's 65L x 11H x 25W in bricks (not technically long enough to be a real SHIP, but hey) or ~51cm long by 10cm high by 20cm wide. Pegasus is 54cm long x 13cm high x 26cm wide - and generally a lot bulkier - in comparison. I've still to design a stand, or sticker sheet (need some for the engine nozzles for sure - can't texture them out fully with Lego at this scale), but those can come as I gather the bricks. May need to build this one before I get to the @mortesv Nebulon... So here she is - the grand old lady herself: The pods slide in and out on rails, and kinda recess into the bodywork (as much as I could with Lego, anyway). They're a real PITA to move around in LDD... And here's a view of the underside and engines (the 4 technic 32530 pieces in the middle are placeholders for connecting the stand) with the pods retracted to show how they integrate with the main body: There's another underside shot (front perspective) plus my reference image in my Flickr album. I may go & fire up my old Mac to do a 360 render now... Any feedback, comments or suggestions are welcome!
  24. Does anyone know that is it lego minifigure or moc?? this is so awesome!!!! there is a sword and shield. can its accessories and parts be playful?? where to buy it anyone can help me pls!!!!!!
  25. Thought I would share. Liked the Buggy set so much got a second set (after Christmas clearance). While having the two sets was nice, thought would look better if they differed a bit as if they were competitors. Was able to moc the green and gray one with parts I had on hand. Would have liked a few more stickers, but the one's that came from TLG were all red and purposely avoided this color in my moc. Think I have less than $7 in this total ($5.5 was the clearance price). Had a lot of fun with this project, planning more like this in the future.
