Hello everyone ! I am very excited to show you a MOC that i've been working for a while and that i really wanted to show you, my new and improved X-Wing. Now i know there's been a... X-Wing fattigue (for lack of a better term) here, and with such great models as Inthert's or Maciej Szymansk's, i knew i had to live up to those standards, weather or not i did it's up to you, so since i knew i couldn't do this alone so i asked for help from LiLmeFromDaFuture, Kit Bricksto and Inthert to help me out with this model, the result.. what i consider a decent (at best) representation of the iconic ship. Now, my main goals with this was to use the new windshield piece and to make it look organic into the model itself, i also wanted to give the nose a nicer/smoother look and to give it that nice angle from the nose to the windshield, to keep it as smooth as posible (since i prefer that style of builds), give it the right proportions, keep it minifig scale and to give it the hexagonal shape that the X-Wing it's known for. My all time favorite color scheme for the X-Wing is Luke's so i wanted to get as close as i could to that specific set of colors with my model and throwing some random tan & light bluish gray, some old darker and slightly discoloured pieces,along with newer ones to show wear One mayor thing that was missing from my previous one was a proper targeting monitor, so i made sure to include it this time around, one thing that's easier to note in this pic is the fact that i tried to hide the technic as much as i could, it aint perfect yet but it does the job for the time being. One big improvement was the back of the fighter, you can see that the main body looks waaay better now and i added some extra greebles there just for the heck of it. And one of the sections i'm the most happiest of it were the 2x2 round brick/mechanism activator is, i used hinge bricks and plates along with tiles to give it that nice outline on the back while keeping the shape, that's an idea that Kit and Inthert gave me and i cannot thank them enought for that. I think this picture (the trench run pic as i like to call it) shows the new nose in all it's glory. And that's pretty much it guys thanks for taking the time to read this, oh wait there's more actually heh, the last time i uploaded a X-Wing quite some people wanted instructions for it, but i didn't make any because that model wasn't the most stable, however i designed this one to be quite sturdy (it's not as solid as a LEGO set but it should do, it's ment to be a display piece anyways) so i'm very happy to announce that for anyone that woul like to build this... well now you can, i made a full PDF file with the actual instructions and some further stuff you need to know about this. The X-Wing that's on those instructions is a blank looking one (what i mean by that it's that it's mostly if not fully white and with complete red marks) so you can come up with your own color scheme, it can be a Black X-Wing, a member of the Rogue Squadron or even one of the new cool gray X-Wing squads that will be on Rogue One the choice is up to you. Because it took quite a while to develop this unfortunally the instructions do have a cost they're only $6.50, this can help me develop and fund more awesome builds like this but i'm willing to lower the price if i see that enought of you think it's too high. You can find the instructions here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/LEGO-Star-Wars-Custom-X-Wing-Fighter-Instructions-/222292473912? And they will be on the Bricklink MOC page soon ! (i'll post the link when they go up) Sorry for that huge plug, and thanks again for taking the time to read this, i hope you all like this as much as i do, and huuuugee thanks to Kit,LiL & Inthert for their help Have a great day and May the force be with you ! -Prime
I know it's like beating a dead horse already but after watching TFA, I felt compelled to post this. I made it like a playset because I have a 5 y.o. son who is into LEGO minifigures as well. The droid detector is also working (the flashing lasts for about 2 days without turning off completely) but I am looking for a way to use 3rd-party lights to add more LED lights. This is my attempt to recreate the Mos Eisley Cantina scene in episode IV and be faithful to how the characters should appear. I strived to put each characters in the location I believe is correct but of course there are many ways to interpret where they are because some of them moved around. So I just assumed the internet references I used are correct because after watching this scene over and over I am still confused where some of those aliens are located. Why work in progress? I feel that it is too small for 64x64 ... to be minifig scale. Should I move it to a bigger plate dimension? What I like with my current model is that each 32x32 plate are 'modular' so I can snap them on and off whenever I am moving them around for display.
