  1. Miua, Toa of Water

    I've had this MOC together for some time now, but I just made a eurobricks account. I hope I did this right. Miua was created to be something of a self-MOC for my girlfriend. She never grew up with Bionicle like I did, but I thought she may like the rich lore. She's not crazy about it, but she's not disinterested, in fact she encourages me to continue MOCing, which is nice. And even though she's not as captivated by MOCing and Bionicle as I am, I wanted to include her in some way, and Miua (MYU-ah) was born! I made sure to have her input on every step of the process, just to make sure she'd like it. Blue was picked because it was her favorite color, and I had a blue Rau. She didn't really like the Rau until I told her the power it grants the user, as she loves languages of any kind. In fact, Miua got her name from a combination of Mizu and Agua, the words for water from Japanese and Spanish respectively. Another of her interests is fantasy of all kinds. Hence the sword and daggers. Unless I giver her some kind of crossbow in the future I don't plan on giving her any weapon that fires. I like this as it represents both her interests and provides a clear contrast to Zeren, a MOC designed around sci-fi soldier characters and firearms. Anybody who plays Soulcalibur may recognize some of these poses, as many of them were ripped right from some of the characters. Full Album available here
  2. Hello everyone !!! So after some on and off work designing this thing both IRL & LDD i am very proud and happy to show you my Batmobile as it appears on Batman V Superman. I tried to make this model as accurate as i could and the recent images,game DLC´s & toys helped a lot,not only that but the model is very stable and i know this is a small detail that´s pretty much standard with other Batmobiles but... i managed to make the wheels roll with all the armor on it !!! :D So let´s start with the front,definetly a challenging part to do as at first i had no idea how to pull off the shapes & angles, not only that but belive it or not i had trouble doing the turret Things got difficult on the sides, as the actual car has a lot of angles and shapes that are almost impossible to make a 100 % acurate representation on this scale.... however i think i did a fairly decent job doing those The back was fairly simple to do... it took me a while to find a correct size of tires but once i did everything went smoothly.... BTW Credit to JANGBRICKS for the idea of using that motor piece for the Turbine/engine/exaust pipe... So that´s pretty much it guys i hope you like this build as much as i do and if you do want to build this yourself here´s a link were you can buy the instructions : http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/222084491318? Happy building !! -Prime
  3. For a few months I've been playing around with redesigning the 10215 UCS Obi-Wan Starfighter (Delta-7 Aethersprite) with a few objectives in mind: Change the colour scheme to match Anakin's Delta-7, as per the Clone Wars animated series... but only in bricks. Improve the canopy to rear cockpit lines so that the curve is smoother and continuous. Have landing gear that can carry the weight of the set Have the option of a droid socket in front of the cockpit. Ideally this would be sized to fit the 30611 R2-D2 polybag build. As is always the case with a Lego design/build, compromises are made between style, colours, parts availability/count, function, build stability, etc. I've redesigned pretty much every aspect of the original design, with only a few core elements left untouched. The wings, engine shrouds, central hull and cockpit have all been changed extensively. I've yet to build this in bricks, so I don't know if what I've chosen so far will work. I do know that some of the pieces I've selected aren't available in the colours I want. Here's a few test renders. I'd be interested to hear anyones thoughts and feedback on how to improve this.

  5. Hello! Several months ago we were able to get to know the new First Order machine "Gorilla Walker". When I saw the version released by Lego 75189, at first I thought it was necessary to build it in version "plussize" :) The design requires a lot of parts so I do it in LDD, after designing, I will order the appropriate parts. Current work lasts about 1.5 months, maybe I'll finish it by the end of the year :) How do you like it? All suggestions and comments are welcome :) More photos on flickr https://flic.kr/s/aHsm97P5CD
  6. [MOC] Millennium Falcon

    Hi There This is my first post here.. errr topic , and it will be about my MOC. Nothing really fancy here, i just want to have a bigger Falcon to sit down with my UCS Slave 1 (which i haven't build yet). Since the UCS Flacon is out of reach, i decided to create a bigger falcon out of 2 system scale falcons (75015) plus some extra bricks. My Goal is to make it similar to the system scale but bigger, meaning it should have an interior. Here it is: It is a bit smaller than the UCS version.. i think.. but almost the same scale as the UCS Slave 1.. i think.. I want to detail the underside, but my wallet said no. Sorry for the bad pictures!
  7. [MOC] Blow, Harry, Blow!

    Three brave survivors (or maybe not so brave... or maybe not all af them, but nevermind) on the raft escape from ancient beast. After a sea battle with Imperial ship, Harry and Olaf were trap on a raft under leadership of old sea dog Bartholomew Gingerhead. While Harry blowing the sail, and Olaf work with a paddle, fearless captain throws harpoon after harpoon into the monster! It won't eat them! Or?.. Place your bets, Gentlemen!
  8. 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 chrdvorak@hotmail.com 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: https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/139982-moc-ucs-cr-90-corellian-corvette-–-blockade-runner-tantive-iv/
  9. The work building a Rebel Fleet continues! The latest addition the Rebel Fleet is the CR-90 Corellian Corvette, better know as a Blockade Runner. The CR-90 was built by the Corellian Engineering Corporation for the Empire, but many of them were stolen by the Rebels. Over time they became a mainstay in the Rebel fleets. This specific rendition is of course Leia’s counselor ship: the Tantive IV. The model is built using the same 2-meter/stud scale as the rest of my Rebel ships and fighters. Thus the 150-meter ship becomes a 75-stud model. My goal was, as always, to capture every little detail of the studio model. However, this time there was also the challenge to improve the two official renditions of the ship. Comparing the TLG versions with the studio model, it became clear that getting the proportions right seems to be difficult - since both version are pretty far off. As always the design process began in LDD but ended in bricks – some things are simply more easily designed in real life :) When I was done the model consisted of just over 2800 bricks distributed across 250 brick types. The Tantive IV. Chased Through Space. This angle shows off the command section - which was one of the last parts I built. I knew all the proportions of the section; it was just a question of how I could represent them best while retaining crucial detail. It was tempting just to use large cone bricks. But I did not want to compromise any detail. I ended up using a lot of different slope -and wedge bricks and plates, combined with hinges and tiles. Dark red round 4 x 4 plates in combination with 3 x 3 discs was the solution for the red markings on the sides of the command structure. However, this also meant I had to make room for technic axles inside the cockpit – alongside hinges, the spine of the ship, and other stuff. Suffice to say, it is a very cramped bridge :) Model Side View. As mentioned above, getting the proportions to fit with the studio model was a priority when designing the ship. Using pictures and diagrams of the studio model, I have gotten with within a pretty tiny margin. Model Top View. Another challenge was to replicate the smooth transition from the body to the engines section. To achieve that I used corner slopes. Comparison pictures of the studio model can be found here: http://www.modelermagic.com/?p=57848 The Main Dish. The mold for the main dish is the same as the one used on the two TLG versions of the ship. The way it is mounted is inspired by the movie version - using droid arms to get the proper detail. Just below the dish, the studio model has two angled door-like vents on either side of the base. I have recreated this detail using hinges and grilles. On the same base, facing the engines, are also four small, horizontal cylinders – these are visible in the picture below. The area around the antenna sports an almost fin-like structure. The purpose of this structure is to stabilize the otherwise very slender body of the ship – considering the combined torque provided by the 11 Girodyne Ter58 Ion Turbine Engines. I tried to convey this thin structure in a multitude of ways. The cleanest solution I found was using flags. Flags are quite thin and can be placed at the desired angle with no fuss. Using several flags in a row I could slightly adjust the angle from flag to flag to approximate the desired lines. Docking Rings. Beneath the antenna we have the symmetrical docking area. Here we find the docking rings where the CR-90 can dock with other ships. An interesting side note: since the early concepts and prototype models of the Blockade Runner was referred to as the “smugglers ship” aka the Millennium Falcon, the round housings around the docking rings were originally supposed to represent a one floor walkway. The equivalent on the final Falcon is the side docking rings – in the Smuggler Ship’s original form these we 1:1 with the ones on the Falcon. In the final version of the Blockade Runner, the docking tubes are representing several floors of walkways. In this picture it is also apparent that the ship if made up of a number of slightly different sized cylinders. To get these shapes I once again turned to the curved slopes I used in the GR-75. It turned that I could render most of the core body of the ship using these bricks – all I had to do was to create a long square 4x4 center with studs on all sides running through the entire body :) The Main Turrets. As with the docking rings the main turrets were originally equivalent of the turrets seen on the Falcon. Since the ship changed purpose and scale substantially during production of “The Star Wars”, the turrets grew from anti-fighter duty, to heavy turrets effective against large ships – although still immensely underpowered against the shielding of an Imperial Star Destroyer :) Main Hull. The main hull of the ship houses the living quarters. We also find a number of smaller anti-fighter turrets. Oddly these turrets are only found on the dorsal part of the ship, rendering it vulnerable to fighter attacks from the ventral angle. This part also sport a bit of discrete piping. On the spine of the main hull is more detailing and I have displaced some of the slopes one plate to give the side of the spine some texture. Escape pods. But who cares about fighter attacks or encroaching Star Destroyers, when you can jettison yourself to the desolate safety of Tatooine’s sand dunes? As you can see, several of the escape pods have already taken off – perhaps one of them were carrying a couple of oddball droids? The escape pods are made up of a 2x2 cone brick with a 1x1 round tile on top. Jettisoned escape pods are represented by a 2x2 round dbg tile with a hole in the middle, to convey the scorching from the explosion that shot the unlocked escape pod into space. Side Detail. On the sides of the main hull there is a narrow band of greebling on the studio model. The band wraps around the entire section and, like with the section itself, I used hinge bricks to capture the different angles. Main Turrets Bottom View. In this close-up we see more of the detailing of the main turrets. This area also hides the ship’s front landing legs – where the transparent stand is. However the ship is in flight right now so the legs have been retracted :) Engines! Now to the best part of any ship :) The official UCS version (10019) of the Tantive IV was one of my favorite ships for a long time. But when seeing the movies, it is clear that the Lego version has some issues regarding proportions. It is very bulky and square looking and does not properly convey the slender nature of the ship. This is especially true for the engine section, which is a large square block with oversized engines placed directly next to each other. In this regard the later 10198 is much more accurate. I my version the engines have the correct diameter and length in relation to the ship’s overall proportions. The horizontal spacing between the engines are ½ engine diameter. The vertical spacing between the three rows of engines are around half a stud. Each engine sports brick built panel with detailing – no stickers :). I used a bracket brick to have the panel run down the sides of the cylinder. Engines Top View. The 11 Girodyne Ter58 Ion Turbine Engines in all their glory! Here you can see all the details and cables on the engines. I considered using rigid cables, but I had to heat them up to get the proper shape. The cables were also too thick. However, I found that by placing a 1x2 bracket in the side panels I could place levers on top of them. The levers convey thin cables running from the sides of the engine to its core. Engines Close-up. The engine housings were also detailed looking at the studio model and as you can see not two engines are the same. It is worth noticing the angles of the engine housings. I have tried to get as close to the studio model as possible, while also taking into account that the side-most engines have a steeper angle. The middle (seen from the side) engine housings also have their own specific angle. These features were completely ignored on the official TLG models and contributed to the 10019’s blocky appearance. Engines Bottom Rear View. As mentioned above, each engine is different. This is not only in terms of detailing, but also how they are attached to the ship. Top, middle and bottom engines are attached differently. Top engines are placed on the top of a plate, middle ones at the end of technic bricks, and bottom ones are attached to the bottom of plates. Since the engines are mirrored left/right not two engines are the exact same. The detailing of the nozzle of the engines is made using a sailing ship rudder and a lot of 1x1plates with side clips and 1x1 tiles. And yes, the exhaust should have been yellow, but there are no trans-yellow 3x3 dishes :) Scale Comparison. As always, I have a scale model with my MOCs. This time the model is my 7½-week-old son. He is a huge Lego Star Wars fan :) The Tantive IV Flying Away. Enjoy, and please comment!
  10. Today is the 20th anniversary of LEGO's first video game, LEGO Island! I've been built the Island in real life in honor of this anniversary as well as to honor Wes Jenkin's legacy, who sadly passed away last week. Here is an introduction video I did of the Island: I also modeled all the buildings in Stud.io so that you can download and view them in 3D and easily export them into Bricklink wishlists if you want to build your own Island! Here's a sampling of the Information Center. If that piques your interest, you can CLICK HERE to see the rest of the buildings! To download the Stud.io files CLICK HERE!
  11. Here is my latest Modular MOC, a Tiki Bar & Restaurant with a townhouse next door. I completed this MOC in the spring but just got around to photographing it this past week, so I thought I would share it here. This will be a very image-intensive post, so if you want to see all of the images on Flickr, check out my album here! Here's the full front view, with both buildings side by side. A closer view of the facade of the Tiki Bar. I named the bar HAU after the Infected Bionicle mask that adorns the entrance. Now to look inside! The A-frame Archway clips on and can easily be removed in order to access the individual floors. The A-frame Archway, Disassembled from the main structure. Top floor of the Tiki Bar. The chef prepares Polynesian-inspired chicken and seafood recipes in the kitchen. The best seats in the house are at the banquet table on this floor, giving diners a unique experience. The second floor of the restaurant and the bottom floor of the townhouse. More townhouse pictures are coming up. This floor of the restaurant has an opening that overlooks the bar below. The dining tables on the second floor. The walls are adorned with traditional Polynesian-inspired Tiki decor such as nautical paraphernalia and seashells, and globe lamps light the restaurant from above. Overlooking the bar below is a loft area with a giant Tiki idol and a colorful banner. The stairs leading to the top floor have some hidden skulls beneath them. All of the great Tiki bars have lots of hidden details. The bottom floor of the restaurant, with the bar and additional dining areas. The bar area has lots of traditional Tiki mugs lining the shelves made from an old boat hull. Another large Tiki statue looms from the archway in the back. The front door from the inside, showing the torches that help to create the appropriate level of lighting. The lavatory is hidden off in the area behind the bar. After getting past the Tiki idol on the ground floor, patrons will find the stairs to the upstairs level, along with a door to the outside... ...where they can find cozy outdoor patio with intimate seating for two. And now, for the adjoining townhouse: The top floor of the townhouse, with a loft-style bedroom and bathroom. The townhouse bathroom. The open kitchen on the first floor, with a small dining nook. A cozy living area allows the resident to watch their favorite TV shows or relax with a good book. The back of the apartment has a small porch with flowerbeds and seating. Thanks for looking! Again, the whole gallery can be located here!
  12. Hi guys, im looking to build some 12v models in alternative colours. E.g. 7745 in all black or 7755. Looking at Bricklinking cheaper parts. Wondered if anyone had some pictures they may have of stuff they had done for some inspiration? Thanks in advance and I look forward to hopefully seeing some of your creations. 😃
  13. Custom Bulldozer MOC

    A little moc bulldozer i built awhile ago. I wanted one that was more minifig scale as i dont care for the city set which is huge.
  14. This steam locomotive is a 2-6-0+0-6-2 Double Mogul (Garratt-type) steam engine. This type of wheel configuration was built for use on railways in South America, Australia, Africa, and England in at least six different track gauges, according to Wikipedia. None were built for use in North America like my model is supposed to be, but I'm ignoring that fact. The engine I have made traces it's lineage to a model originally designed by Anthony Sava as a 4-6-0+0-6-4 but with fake pistons and with small-size friction bearing wheels. I added Big Ben Bricks medium flanged and blind driving wheels for use with the working pistons. The very inspirational original Sava engine is available for purchase in PDF instructions format at Mr. Sava's official Bricklink store here. Even with the added pistons, the engine easily can go around corners and switches quite easily. I did have to add two weight bricks for the pistons to grip the rails sufficiently to move instead of scrapping along the track like they were before. The engine also features a nicely decorated cab with plenty of printed tiles. (The letters BRS are the initials of my fictional railroad: Brick Railway Systems.) I got this picture from Google as an example of how close my LEGO Garratt engine is to the real deal. (I couldn't find a "real" picture of this specific type, but I know it exists according to Wikipedia. So this O gauge model of it will have to do...) As usual, I have a color-matched train in the works that this engine is to pull. To see the Maintenance of Way crane train's topic click this link. Please let me know if you have any comments, questions, suggestions or complaints. Thanks for looking at my model! EDIT 10/16/17: I edited the engine by extending the boiler four studs. The pictures have also been updated as well.
  15. I recently felt a hankering to rebuild the first year Toa, only seven years (SEVEN!) after my original attempts (here). And so . . . Hold on. Wrong magnification. Obligatory daft joke out of the way - I started indulging my nostalgia with some brick-built mini-Toa but enough time spent staring at those lovely, lovely first year masks made me want to go the whole hog as it were. I'm not sure my Toa design stacks up against some of the designs out there but it's pretty darned flexible, which is a definite plus. More photos are available here. There's more to come - my table is covered in Bioincle builds at this point - but for now, let me leave you with some brick-built Rahi and a WIP howling void. Enjoy!
  16. The 5th vignette! This MOC took an extra bit of time due to my having to catch up on some sleep. Nonetheless, I'm forging on! Perhaps one of the creepiest scenes from Raiders, this scene depicts Indiana Jones and close friend Sallah retrieving the Ark of the Covenant from the Well of Souls in Tanis, Egypt. Little does Indy know that he will soon have to find a way out the snake-infested (asps to be precise) pit. Thanks to all the builders from the Harry Potter vignette story collaboration for inspiring this series.)
  17. Skulltail - The Pirate Ship

    I think the Pirate Ship is a dream of everyone who was a kid in late 80s/early 90s. This was time when LEGO introduced the classic Pirates series. I remember staring for hours at set 6285 (Black Seas Barracuda). It was so awesome that for me it become an icon how pirate ship should look like. It is the reason behind why I like to build playable set-like ships instead of realistic ones. This is one of them Read more » Bigger photos and full story here: LEGO Gallery - Skulltail - The Pirate Ship Follow my new MOCs and articles at: Facebook | Flickr | Google+
  18. I present to you the back bone of the Rebel Alliance – the GR-75 Rebel Transport: After having tweaked and tweaked for my last MOC (Medical Frigate) and built a fleet of fighters and smaller ships for it, I wanted to build something bigger - but in the same scale. I chose the beautiful, organic looking 90-meters long, Rebel Transport. The Medical Frigate can be seen here: http://www.eurobrick...pic=129607&st=0 http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=131170 The Transport is the workhorse of the Rebel alliance, transporting equipment from base to base. The ship can house dozens of odd sized containers kept in place by strong magnetic locks. The Transport, like so many other Rebel ships, have a very organic and beat up look – getting this look right was the biggest challenge when designing the moc. The scale of the model is 1: 250 meaning it is built at 2 meters per stud. Thus the Transport is 45 studs long. Building the most detailed 45 stud version of the ship was my main goal. Based on pictures of the movie model I calculated the width and curvature of the ship – I fired up LDD and began building. What I ended up with was an 850+ brick model made up of 150+ brick types: The Transport takes flight! Front view. In this picture the curvature of the ship is very pronounced. To my luck the range of curved bricks fit perfectly with curvature of the ship. When placed along a central spine they further underline the lines the Transport has across the hull. Don’t mind the small hole in the front – one of the hinges is slightly too bent. Top view. I have mostly used white 1 x 4 curved slopes to get the proper shape. However, to get the dirty, rugged look of the ship, I have mixed in a number of different colors and other curved slopes. The Cargo. The GR-75 can carry a LOT of containers. Creating this part of the ship was kind of a chore but also very fun. At this scale I had just enough resolution to attempt recreating every single cargo container and detail from the studio model. I found a picture of the model showing the bottom up and began mapping every container pipe and greeble I could. I recreated it all with bricks of matching colors, pipes, taps and odd shaped pieces. The end result matches the haphazard stacking of the studio model – I’m glad I put the magnetic locks in place… :) Containers from the back. As with the Medical Frigate, one of the challenges was creating a sturdy non-interfering stand. With this ship one of the stands is placed in the middle of the containers. However I did not want to sacrifice even a single compartment so I found a workaround using transparent wall pieces. The slim piece is fitted snugly in between a number of containers and is just connected via two studs – but it seems to hold :) Container close up. They are all there :) Starboard profile view. This angle reveals the slight sloping of the hull towards the rear end of the ship. The curving effect was achieved by a number of plate hinges and four sections with slightly different angles. Port profile view. The profile views show the gap between the top and bottom hull plates. This gap has a jagged effect on the studio model – conveyed here by 1 x 1 and 1 x 2 plates. Side detail. Yes, there is actually detailing in the narrow gap between the hull plates. Again, the greebling is based on looking at the studio model – and on what was possible in such a small area :) Engine view. As always, one of my favorite parts of a ship. Getting all the engines to fit in there was a bit of a challenge. Rear view. As the Transport flies out of focus the uneven surface is again evident. The Transport has a very small command/deflector module - the little thing on top of the spine. To be in scale this module should actually be about half a stud smaller – even smaller than a B-wing cockpit section. However, the 2,5 stud test I did, did not look very good :) Lastly a scale comparison with the Medical Frigate – and the rest of the rebel fleet :) Thanks to all the supporters of the Medical Frigate project, you have helped make this model possible! Everyone can get the LDD for the Rebel Transport here: https://www.dropbox..../GR-75.lxf?dl=0 Enjoy and please comment!
  19. Hi there, Recently I've seen amazing lego build on: Lego Ideas. Unfortunately it did not come through. So I decided to build one myself. Using Icemann pictures as references and studying sideshowtoy.com collectibles I've come up with somewhat different build than original Icemann's. Went through dozens of ideas how to create round probe body and head and trying to decorate it as close as possible to movie and star wars wiki designs. And I've ended up with this build: Some more pictures can be found here: https://imgur.com/a/2jOkj Drone stats: Brick count: ~950 (got 100 blocks bump from version 1.0) Dimensions (WxDxH): 12cm x 12cm x 10cm / 5" x 5" x 4" + arms stretch about 12cm (5") [excluding antennas] All arms can move independently - each arm joint has it's own lego-joint and whole arm is mounted on towball joint type, also head can rotate freely. Feel free to comment and have a good day :) ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- UPDATE: ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thx for all replays and for pointing out one major flaw in probe design - to small head (thx Meatcan!). I did some work and here is it, improved probe - had not time to bricklink it thou :) As promised, I'm posting LDD file for a probe, but this time with detailed PDF manual. If you'd like to throw some money in my general direction - please do not hesitate :P [paypal] Here are some new renders of the new version: https://imgur.com/a/80VR1 And here are files to download: PDF: https://goo.gl/cQ6pFX LDD: https://goo.gl/qg83ua Best

  21. Hi All, After 2 years of non-castle building I've finally had time and inspiration to do a small castle build - Woodsford Hold. For this build I've decided to go classic with the stronghold belonging to a crusader knight's lord, some forestmen passing through (and one up to mischief) and some devious black falcon knights observing from the trees. I've also included some internal lighting so that the stained glass windows show up properly. Feedback welcome. Thanks, More photos in my flickr album https://www.flickr.com/photos/brickknight/albums/72157687277962034
  22. Hallo, I've made some digital inspirations for future project of our LUG - MicroCITY. Inspiration comes from existing blocks of flats built in our city in 1950s, modified and adjusted to fit in modules of 32x32 baseplates. Built in LDD, rendered in Bluerender.
  23. And here is my latest MOC, a Gozanti-class cruiser modified for deep-space exploration of the fringes of the known Galaxy. (/U version) Gozanti in space by Veynom, on Flickr First, a quick introduction to this Gozanti spaceship. It appear briefly in the prequels and can be more extensively seen inside the Star Wars Rebels anime series. I've chosen to built the latest from SW Rebels. The most visible difference is around the wings and the reactors but also regarding the color scheme based on 2 shades of greys. However, and let's be blunt, whatever the subversion, this ship is plain ugly and by far not the most elegant from the Star Wars universe, except maybe for those (a bit like me) who consider that because it is ugly then it must be an attractive ship. TLC has already released a set about this hip under reference 75106: But, without any second thought, we may agree that this is not their best rendering of a Star Wars ship. In short, it is just ugly and the only few sections where it could have been sleek have been slaughtered by an horrible greebling. Thereofre and because it was so ugly, I decided to make a nicer less ugly version of it. The main idea was to make a model more or less 3 to 4 times bigger and thus multiplying all dimensions of the 75106 by a factor of around 1.5. The final result is this model: Gozanti/U-class Cruiser by Veynom, on Flickr A small ship of 109 studs long (89 studs with the probe). As I built it during the month of September, I decided to add a forward probe in order to reach the mythical lgenth of 100 stuffs and participate to the SHIPtember contest. It results in a version which is a bit less canon but still probable within the Star Wars expanded universe. The resulting asymmetric forward body helps in breaking the otherwise monotonous aspect of the Gozanti without crippling the ship with excessive greebling. I could have also easily added the 11 missing studs to reach the 100-stud's length but as I worked without any detailed schematics (and online pictures are often contradicting each others). And in the end, basta, you will see many Lego Gozanti without a probe but mine is unique. Gozanti nose by Veynom, on Flickr I have integrated the playability features from the original set, except the shooters and springloaders that I despise in an very imperial way. Gozanti - Zoom on the central engine section by Veynom, on Flickr When you turn the black section of the central engine, both turrets will rotate. Absolutely useless but quite fun during a fair. The TIEs can be launched exactly like in the original set. I should make larger TIEs as well. There are 7 opening panels of all kinds: cockpit, forward port side, lateral sides (port & starboard), forward roof, main body and Ackbar hatch. A friend of mine felt quite inspired by my model and created several renderings. All of these are pure digital rendering and my original MOC is indeed grey. Those pictures are just for the sake of having fun.

  24. Inspired by the Speed Champions cars. Last year I built a car showroom to show them off. Al's Autos is built on 3 large baseplates. On the left baseplate the blue and white sign has doubled sided brick plate writing and rotates on a Technic turntable. The showroom has a roller door entry behind the office on the left. It is fully tiled inside and lit with PF LEDs. On the right baseplate the brown turntable also rotates on a Technic turntable. The footpath is designed to match up to the Modular footpaths. My own creation cars are a Pick Up truck with removable Camper. A Ford GT40 reverse engineered from a LEGO YouTube movie. The black Pontiac is a KITT replica and has a working red LED scanner in the front. Next was a service centre / workshop for the showroom.The back section is a parts department. On the right are two service bays. The front one has a working Technic pneumatic hoist. Also PF LED lighting. The shipping containers can fit a Speed Champions car or spare parts. To keep the cars clean I next built a car wash. This has a working Technic based linear actuator to move the brushes back and forward over the car. So after a long day. It's off to the Drive In movies. The diner has a projection room, kitchen, counter, seating and toilet. My own creation cars are two NYPD police cars with working light bars. A yellow NY taxi. The two Porsche 911's are modified with brick headlights and door handles. The ambulance has working LED light bars, headlights and taillights One day I will get around to doing close up and interior photos.
  25. I have lost a collection due to flooding. The background information can be found here - The issue I am having is with pricing. I know I am selling as bulk but this is really bulk sets and not bulk parts. I need to know where I should set the reserve price. I am thinking of around .08 per piece. Below is a list of my sets. I will ship overseas but it will be expensive. I shipped one set to my nephew in Sweden and it was $75... This is not going to be easy but it is a great opprotunity for a collector and a great parts hoard for the MOC builder.
