  1. Finally, an official addition to your Collection is here! After years of requests and tweaks to the model, Cavegod's Sandcrawler is officially ready to be released to the public! The MOC itself contains 12,110 parts, and its manual is 645 pages long. The MOC is built to minifigure scale, and does a job in capturing the sheer size of the vehicle in a way that no Lego set ever has (Or likely will) ever done. Lots of interest has been generated for this MOC, and Cavegod and I are really glad to make its release to the community! Looking forward to seeing all of the improved collections and Tatooine MOCs. If you would like to build this MOC, we are happy to share it with you in exchange for $60. 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 with a parts list is available here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-13289/cjd_223/cavegod-ucs-sandcrawler Here are some pictures of the MOC and of the pdf manual:
  2. Hi There! 1:45 scale Lego model of the Portuguese Siemens Krauss Maffei Eurosprinter, CP5600 This model has around 2000 parts, custom lights, HA bricks MS wheels, Buwizz 2.0, and two Powerfunctions L motors. Also, I pay homage to the LLMTC guys by using an LLMTC printed brick on that boring huge grey wall. (they gave me these bricks after participating in one of their amazing events last year) This is the most ordinary locomotive in Portugal, currently used in all Intercity Trains (where there is electric wire).
  3. UPDATE - March 2023 - INSTRUCTIONS are still available via PayPal donation - just let me know or write me a mail to boonatix@gmail.com :) Prevously: Working on the instructions is close to the finish... WIP - Instructions by Brickmasta on Flickr UPDATE - FINISHED on 22nd of April The Batwing - Front by Brickmasta on Flickr See the Album with details and more: https://www.flickr.c...th/13973416094/ ----------------------------------- I would like to present my current WIP to you all and love to get some feedback on it As soon as I saw the first Trailer for "The Lego Movie" I was in shock... a childhood dream coming true. With so many awesome creations in it. And one was standing out the first time I saw it: "The Batwing". I immediately knew that I needed to build this asap. Even though I just came back out of the dark ages by end of last year and was very fresh to all the building processes, parts and stuff... I thought It can't be that hard with having the model right in front of me on the screen. But it wouldn't be as easy as I thought... I researched all the internet for more pictures / trailers, fortunately there was more released with special scenes and stuff for this Batwing. I did frame by frame analysis and took a whole lot of screenshots, scratching my head how and where to start. I had the best material of one of the turbines, so I just got to work on one of those! But then I was kind of lost... not enough details, not enough shots of the Batwing. And then somebody on Flickr linked me a video to the Lego Movie Videogame. Woah! There was actually a building process you could unlock in there for it. I had to get the game, started gaming until I was able to unlock this plan and rebuild it over and over to see how they did it. And got to the point where I finally started with one of the wings! The Batwing - WIP #003 by Brickmasta at Flickr And the first challenge occured and I knew it would not be that simple / as easy as I hoped. The wing consists of 4 sections. And each section basically just featured 1 connector, making the whole wing completely unstable, bending and nearly breaking apart. That did not look good. So I got to understand that I won't be able to do a 1:1 true copy of it. The physics in the movie and the videogame are just easier / different because there is no real physics So I got to work again and tried and tried and thought and planned... and found a solution! First step was to double and exchange the connections for each section: The Batwing - WIP #004 by Brickmasta at Flickr But that was not quite enough and after some more thinking I had another idea, so I took the shot and gave the second wing a try with new elements in it and a stabilizer under the wing, connecting the sections and holding them together... and it worked out! "The Batwing" is going to be huge...! That is my progress so far. I am now starting to work on the cockpit and will try out the connections from wing to cockpit asap because I have a feeling they also won't hold up that good... each wing weighs around 260gr wich is around 0,6 pounds. That is quite a lot to be held together by slim Lego connectors. Lets see how this will work out then Let me know what you think! Appreciate every comment and input
  4. I have not seen too many railway bridges on this forum, let alone bridges that move! This MOC is not quite a common type of moveable railway bridge either, it's a double-leaf drawbridge. More common would be a bascule bridge. The difference being that a bascule bridge has it's contraweight either directly below the (rail)road or above it, but then directly attached to the bridge deck. The double-leaf drawbridge has a contraweight attached to a 2nd structure above the road. The nice thing about this bridge is that it allows me to keep the track very low to the ground. My Lego railway simply lies directly on our flooring. The contraweight includes a 2 x 6 x 2 weight brick. Not entirely sure how well the bridge is balanced - a real build would have to prove.
  5. I have recently spent some time designing and building my latest MOC, this is a bush plane, which is a C model of set 42147. I have seen some other planes built from this set but wanted to go for something that would be used in remote areas. One of the highlights of this model is its spinning propeller, which adds a dynamic element to the finished build. As you attach the propeller assembly and give it a spin, you can almost hear the roar of the engine and feel the rush of wind as the plane takes off into the wilderness. The inclusion of a spare wheel and jack adds an extra layer of realism, allowing you to imagine scenarios where the plane lands on dirt airstrips in remote locations, ready to tackle any terrain. This took me about 4 hours to design and build, given the limited part count, I am very happy with how it has turned out. https://paulbtechnic.blogspot.com/2024/04/moc-lego-technic-42147-bush-plane-c.html
  6. It's a rainy and cold evening in Scotland, and you are on the Hogwarts Express as a first year student. You have noted other students have changed from street-clothes into the black robes with the crest of your destination on the front: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You do the same, and then notice the train slowing down, and finally coming to a stop at a small station marked "HOGSMEADE" on a wooden platform sign. You don't want to get too wet in your nice new robes, and feel a bit lost in the hustle and bustle of older students departing and railway staff getting luggage off the train and onto the platform. You spot your trunk on the platform and detrain. It's raining less hard now, and a slightly portly-looking, very tall man in a beard and fur-lined coat comes down the platform shouting above the steam engine's noise; "First years with me!" He leads you and about dozen other 11-year old's away from the nice and neat (and warm!) station down to a series of boats on the water's edge of a huge lake not far from the train. He leads each student into the boat, and then boards the lead boat himself. He taps the oarlock of his boat with his umbrella, and all the boats move away in sync by themselves. You are then astounded to see a huge castle, perched on rocky cliffs on the other side of the lake, lit up by hundreds of candles under the moonlight of the clearing sky. The man then shouts out to everyone assembled in the tiny boats; "Welcome to Hogwarts!" (small note: This movie concept art was taken from the Harry Potter wiki sometime in 2015. It is NOT mine.) I have converted and combined this Hogsmeade Station from two different versions found on Rebrickable, and made it my own using pictures and guesswork. This design is supposed to go well with set 76388 - Hogsmeade Visit - (or my Winter Village MOCs) but of course, in the official Harry Potter canon it's on the other side of the lake from Hogsmeade proper. (But I don't listen to canon!) The entrance to the employees-only ticket counter area is on the side furthest to the camera, while the nearest door is to the passenger waiting room. The model has two rooms under the removable roof, featuring seating from the Disney train set. One one side is the ticket office, with a cash register / ticket window and a sorting desk for tickets / packages. The other is the waiting room with a few bench seats w/ individual arms and a bulletin board. Starting amount of parts: 1,185 Parts found so far: 657 Parts still to find: 528 Over half of the parts have been found so far. (I've also started taking apart my Disney-inspired station for it's pieces, so that has made a dent in this project, with more to come as I start on the ground floor of that older MOC.) EDIT 4/15/24: Sorry for the REALLY late update, but I've finally gotten started on building this in real bricks! (only took three years, but whose counting?) It should be finished sooner rather than later. Thoughts, comments, suggestions, and complaints are always welcome!

    [MOC] KMP's Vehicle MOCS

    Decided to take inspiration from fellow builders and put all my past & future builds into one thread, so I wouldn't feel bad about having to create new threads everytime I had something new to upload. The first pictures are the builds that got me started back in 2017, and ones at the bottom are the more recent mocs that I've made. Jaguar XJR-12 Completed in January 2021 McLaren Senna Completed in January 2021 Lexus LFA Modification of an earlier version that I built back in 2019 Bentley Mulliner Bacalar Completed in February 2021 Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut Completed in February 2021
  8. Hello everyone and thank you for accepting me in the site! After being away from the hobby for nearly 20 years, as if by chance I ended up rekindling the flame for LEGO once again. Over the past year and a half I have been working from home and I have been looking for new way to entertain myself. Accidentally I saw that the Harry Potter line had been revived over the last couple of years, so I decided to collect it as I was a huge HP fan as a child and building stuff after work seemed like a good way to relax while listening to some jazz. One thing let to another and as of a month or so now I have been building a full Hogwarts Castle MOC in quite an ambitious scale too, as it turns out. Like I said, I have been away from the hobby for quite some time, but it is great to see that unlike the 90s, nowadays it is quite easy to share with people and find like-minded souls for any passion you might have. Being an AFOL now and easily being considered somewhat of a boomer (lol), being out there is somewhat new to me, but nevertheless to make this process easier, I have made a YouTube channel and an Instagram where I am documenting my progress and various difficulties I happen to encounter while building and designing. So for anyone who might be interested, any kind of opinions, comments and feedback are more than welcome! Looking forward to delving into the LEGO hobby once again and finding new friends within the community! Thank you _______________ Edit: Nov 2022 Hello all, wanted to share some nice pictures of the current state of the castle for those of you that don't follow me on Instagram. Really appreciate if you follow me on You Tube and Instagram. Really helps a lot. Thanks for all the feedback! https://www.youtube.com/@Uniqueorn https://www.instagram.com/uniqueorn_lego/

  10. Hi, As the Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace - turns 25 (already!!!) this year, and some sweet sets (ekhm...droideka) coming along, I decided to also build one of the icons of the film, and, dare I say, one of the most beautiful Star Wars ship designs ever, the Naboo N-1 starfighter. So, as the N-1 minifig scale built by @Inthert is the pinnacle of this design nearly impossible to improve upon, I went for the model in much smaller (I guess it is mini or larger micro...) scale with an aim to build it as sleek as possible utilizing metallic parts as much as possible. So here it is: N-1 N-1 N-1 N-1 N-1 N-1 I apologize for links, as I could not embed the links as pictures in the post from Flickr properly (don't know why..)
  11. I am very happy and proud to share this with you guys. I've been working on it for past two months, slowly tweaking and adjusting the model in my free time, as well as the fun of day dreaming and brainstorming a story and characters for the world of the Brick Seas. And I must not forget reading all the lore on lunch breaks after discovering these forums, what a joy. This build is inspired by a MOC I built as a child from my Volcano Island set. It was fun remembering playing as a kid while putting this together, and I found myself playing a little as an adult too, which I hadn't done in nearly 30 years haha. It was quite fun and has changed my outlook on 'adult lego' building since getting back into it roughly 5 years ago and I think I will be building to play for now on instead of building to display! I don't have a wealth of parts to draw from and build with; but parts I used were two Scary Pirate Island GWP sets, the Pirate Playground GWP set, a Pirate VIP pack, I took apart and cannibalized my Star Wars Landspeeder I had gotten a few years ago, and I used up almost all my extra pieces I had stored away in Tupperware. All in all, I'm super happy I managed to pull it off with the parts I had, and the almost non-existence of my leftover pieces afterwards. I also fit in a light brick I took out of a previous MOC I built a year ago, though I kept that MOC in tact and did not use any other parts from it. _____________ Welcome to Sharktooth Tower, home of Ironhook The Third. Said to be the great grandson to the legendary Pirate Lord Ironhook, but no one knows for sure and you better not ask ask him about it. They say his father took up the Jolly Roger flag as Ironhook Jr to reclaim his "heritage" and can still be found plundering the seas in Halos to this day. But Ironhook the Third prefers his piracy from afar, letting the loot come to him. With his base of operations acting as a storehouse and bank for ill-gotten goods, he has amassed a fortune of information as well as wealth of gold, a self proclaimed Spy King of the Sea. Though none who know would speak the location, they say the dread den of dogfish stews in a perpetual fog that never lifts. Tooth like rocks and a shroud of heavy mist keep it protected just as much as the fabled canon The Thresher, that sits atop the tower. This terrible Tower juts out of and above a cave in the fearsome Visage of a hungry shark, seemingly swimming in the never lifting haze. Torch lit eyes, it's open maw of toothy rocks hungry for any unfortunate souls that dare raid this stronghold. No Oleander or Corlander have ever set eyes on this frightful fortress and lived. The secret location of Sharktooth Tower is known by few. All who know it, first meet Flotsam Frank. A slippery seal, Flotsam Frank is Ironhook's main go-between and scout, making first contact and brokering with fellow scallywags, before loot is stored away in the deep belly of the Shark's cave. Ironhook is sly, but he is only as good as the men he surrounds himself with. And it's a good thing he's fostered an indomitable crew. Flotsam Frank is all too reliable, but most frequently floating along the stud strone seas. When Ironhook needs a job done, he relies on his right hand man, Mickie Two-Hands. Mickie is quite proud all his appendages and face print are in fact, but he gets his name because he does the work of two men. Quite the opposite of Mickie, the last crewman of Ironhook's small band is Nathaniel Napsalot. With incredible luck and a 'too optimistic' attitude that won't quit, Nathaniel Napsalot is a Privateer who's hard to hate, but still pushes the limit. A bad habit of sleeping on the job always lands him ire of of his cave camping compatriots. But you've never seen a fisherman as fierce as he, nor a friend so Jolly. A stalwart but sleepy guard, his spectacular luck seemingly always flipping his frequent naps into fortune's favor. I've heard rumor that Flotsam Frank has recently made brush pass with several shadow contacts of the Continental Council, and it's no secret Ironhook weeps for no spilt Oleander's blood. But the Thresher canon always bellows smoke on sight of the Corlander flag, and an Eslandolan alliance with such scoundrels could threaten relations. One has to wonder why Eslandola would want an alliance with such a fiend that fancies himself Spy Kings of the Brick Seas. _____________________ I hope you enjoyed my MOC of Sharktooth Tower and the fun characters that inhabit it. They are very happy to meet you I used the glow of an electric fireplace to simulate the perpetual fog, though only in some photos as it hinders view of the MOC itself. For that same reason of atmosphere, I did not use the light brick in my cave for all photos, as it is quite bright. I had many issues uploading photos to this site and it would not let me insert the URLs as inserted media, but I posted the links to each photo. I am also unclear if this entry would be factored into Category A or Category B. I intended it for Category B, as I came up with a story for my characters and their interactions in the world. But I see lots of people entered Category A and also wrote stories to go along with a scene, so I am unsure. Please place it where it belongs. I saw on the entry page we can enter both and have the category A included in our category B if we had multiples, but I only have this one build I made and am unclear if it would count for both A and B. I tried to tie in to the lore the Brick Seas, but also a tie to Ironhook who was the Pirate that ruled the seas of my childhood imagination. He was the dread of both Imperials and Islanders alike in my 8 year old mitts. Thank you for looking at my build and meeting my crew.
  12. A bit background about the last few months of tinkering: Some might have seen that a few users, including me, experimented with small non lego/bricks brushless motors and rc parts to build either smaller cars or trophy trucks. I had my own shot on a trophy truck but sadly at that scale some problems couldn't be solved properly. One of those problems was the wheel mounting, i did use hubs with ball bearings from Zenebricks, but with just pins holding them, they would still come of at higher corner speeds. But i didn't want to give up on fusing RC components and bricks, as i love rc cars and i love building stuff. So i thought maybe even with reinforcements a live axle/multilink suspension at RC speeds and offroad just won't work as i want. That's when i thought ok, then maybe some proper on-road or rally car, best with awd or at least 4wd to get more traction and stability. At that point i only had the Zene wheelhubs with bearings and some might have read the conversation about them, they are not suited for a driven and steered axle. I tried to solve that problem but it boiled down to the fact that i needed at least one custom part, either a shortened/custom u-joint or something else. And as i knew that m3 screws fit well into pins i figured that RC parts that are mounted with m3 screws might fit the lego system aswell, so i ordered some cheap tamiya parts as those are widly available and it did fit well. That set the direction for my experiments, fusing RC wheelhups with Lego/Bricks. But wait..they can't connect to Lego axles, so i needed an adapter. I found someone who helped me with a proper cad design and specs, as some of you might have seen in the brushless post, and i ordered some parts. I got them 2 weeks ago and it all worked so well and i build a small prototype. The advantages for me were/are huge, for one, except for the custom parts every other RC part is cheap to replace, all 4 wheelhups cost less than 10€ together. I can replace worn out ballbearings in the hub(and i can clean them) for very little money and there is almost no slack at all in the stearing. Apart from that, by using toe-in/out can be adjusted, left and right wheel steering can be adjusted and the big problem was solved..RC car tires are secured with a proper nut and won't just come of that easy. Fast forward, after all that text, here are some screens: More screens here -> Bricksafe gallery That is my current prototype chassis, currently with on-road touring tires with 82mm diameter. The whole layout is roughtly oriented on most on-road RC cars, except that i choose to center the motor to move it further back and get some weight on the rear axle. Also i choose to not use geekservos even thou it complicated the steering setup but with all that traction i was worried that the geekservo wasn't strong enough. Also i need them for another project, so i put in a cheaper 15kg servo. Features: AWD Adjustable ride height Adjustable steering Adjustable toe-in/out RC shock absorbers Aluminium axles Zene metal differentials Uses common 12mm (1:10 scale) hex mounts for wheels Internal gear ratio is 7.95:1 (spur and diffs) 3250kv brushless motor on 2s (3s possible) 82mm tires And now for the magic custom part: That small part provides the connection between how RC wheels are driven and the lego system and are currently made out of aluminium. It offers a 1 stud long axle part so any axle connector can be attached, be it an common axle connector or a u-joint. The movement range is a bit more than the old lego cv's, i would say about 40 degrees, but that also depends a bit on the RC axle part. A 2mm driveshaft pin needs to be pressed through the hole at the ball end, i designed it that way cause it's easier to manufacture and the pins tend to wear out after some time, so this way i could replace them. There you can see how it's used an the mentioned driveshaft pin that needs to be pressed in. They do need some space to move that's why there is an o ring in the RC axle and a small spring that pushes the driveshaft in a bit. That was only neccessary for the front axle as there is more movement. A first testdrive showed that all the work was worth it. The prototype is fast, stable and fun to drive until a screw(metal 2l pin substitude from a uk shop) got loose cause it was the only screw where i forgot to use locktide :D Next would be more testing and deciding what kind of bodywork i want to do. From the dimensions it's based on a Subaru Impreza WRC but a Skyline should fit aswell. Think it all depends on whether i can find good 80mm rally tires or not. Feel free to ask questions and discuss and thanks for all the fish.
  13. I'm proud to present my newest build, which took me almost half a year: Grandfather clock with 19 different functions, possibly the most complicated Lego clock in the world. 20240210_133209 by David_Z1, on Flickr Standing almost 2 meters tall, this pendulum clock was an engineering challenge on multiple aspects, but the biggest problem was how to power all 19 functions and how to handle a highly variable friction produced by them. The answer was to use several electric motors triggered at the right time. There's no electronics, just mechanical contacts. Escapement - the central part of the clock that powers the pendulum, is powered by a small dropping weight that is frequently lifted back up by electric motor. This ensures a very steady input power, and thus good accuracy; the mean error is less than 3 minutes/day (after a day of working, it is off by less than 3 minutes). This is possible due to the use of John Harrison's grasshopper escapement, which is the most accurate type of pendulum clock mechanism. The electrical system is based on custom DC motors fitted with RCA plugs: 20240210_163033 by David_Z1, on Flickr Above You can also see the Westminster chime mechanism - at every quarter, it plays a melody like Big Ben. The chimes are made from aluminium pipes, 70-110 cm long, length tuned to specific musical notes. Here's the list of functions: Schem_front by David_Z1, on Flickr Schem_back by David_Z1, on Flickr And here a video demonstrating all of them:

    [BDP] Imperial Frigate Minerva

    Minerva is a fast frigate whose sole purpose is to keep the Oceans safe from those Pirates, and dare I may say a ship that has been sorely missing in the LEGO World. She comes with 12 Minifigures and one small cat to keep the food supplies safe from rats. Please Vote Now () at BrickLink.com if you would like for her to be produced as part of the BrickLink Designer Program: https://www.bricklink.com/v3/designer-program/series-4/1451/Imperial-Frigate-Minerva Minerva is a highly efficient design, which is to say that it does a lot with its 4000 pieces. Although the design is ambitious, I have paid close attention to making it as buildable as possible. What I can definitely guarantee is that you’ll come across plenty of interesting techniques as well as those sweet moments where sections come together and fit just perfectly - just have a look at Minerva’s stern. Minerva has several features that make her highly playable and friendly to Minifigures, as demonstrated in this video: Please Vote (): https://www.bricklink.com/v3/designer-program/series-4/1451/Imperial-Frigate-Minerva Thanks a lot!
  15. Hello all, I would like to share with you my most recent model. It is currently digital, but a physical build will be coming soon (with instructions). UP #844 is one of the most iconic locomotives that has ever graced the main line. Both powerful and elegant, she has captured the attention and imagination of railfans since her delivery to Union Pacific in December of 1944. #844 was the last steam locomotive delivered to UP and the only steam locomotive of any American Class 1 railroad that has never been retired. She has seen revenue and excursion service for over 78 years. During this time, she has had several modifications and upgrades. Some minor, such as a livery change and some major such as a Worthington SA feedwater heater added around 1955. For this build, I wanted to capture her essence and model her as she would have appeared in April of 1949. A careful eye will note several key features: by this time she was modified to be oil burning, a mars light had been installed, she was still using the Sellers exhaust steam injector and she wore the two-tone gray paint scheme in Harbor Mist Gray and Armour Yellow. This model is 8-wide, 1:48 scale and displays #844 as she would have been seen while pulling the Overland Limited, Los Angeles Limited or Portland Rose in April of 1949. #844 represents the absolute apex of duel-service steam and I want this model to represent nothing less. It is powered by two large power function motors with a 3:5 gear ratio so that she has both high tractive effort and can travel at high speed. Next step…building the instructions and ordering parts!
  16. Hello Lotus, James Bond and Speed Champions fans, The Lotus Esprit S1 is a sports car built by Lotus Cars from 1976 to 1978 at their Hethel, England factory. It has a rear mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout and it was featured in the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me, where a car famously converted into a submarine after a road chase. The car used in the underwater scenes is nick-named "Wet Nellie". Building instructions are available on the following link: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-178962/_TLG_/lotus-esprit-s1-007-james-bond-submarine-conversion It is a studless build in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. I wanted to create a clean model which is as accurate as possible in this small scale. I prefer the brick built solutions to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds, and therefore only two vehicle registration plate stickers are used. My intent was to keep the width-length-height ratio of the real car and this size makes it possible. The model contains lots of details: for example the black stripes on the sides, door handles, detailed tail lights etc.. Maybe the most challenging one was the front and the front bumper with brick built headlights. I tried to fill every unnecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The car can be converted to submarine. The model has space for two minifigures with helmets or small hairs.

Microscale is quite a bit outside my comfort zone, but I made something anyway, a container ship: Volumentransport im Mikroformat by Klaas de Wit, on Flickr It's an entry for Rogue Olympics 2024. Hope you enjoy it! I couldn't find a special place for microbuilds, so I think this is the right place?
  19. Hi, guys! I know that, there is February yet and we're before March release, but let's start new topic! So, at first I want to say that 2023 wave is amazing.

    MOC: Time for a rest!

    Hello fellow EB members. A small vignette showing a mid century streamline truck in an Octan livery. The driver stops for a well deserved break! You can view all my creations on my flickr account here if you so wish. Regards!
  21. I'm absolutely delighted to present Darth Maul's Scimitar, or Sith Infiltrator - 100% minifig scale with a fully detailed interior! Build features: Semi-circular opening rear doors with a retractable boarding ramp lead into the lower floor of the main hull, where you'll find a fold-down bunk, a laser-gated holding cell and various storage compartments. A 'repulsor-lift elevator' takes you to the upper floor which is the flight deck, with passenger seating and Darth Maul's control console. From the lower floor a corridor narrows down into a maintenance crawl-space and leads through to various engineering access chambers - and eventually takes you out into the cargo hold, where the Bloodfin speeder and Dark Eye probe droids are stored. An access ramp lowers from the cargo hold (under the very front of the ship) + 2 panels under the ship's hull open for retractable landing gear with a fold-out landing pad under the main hull. The roof of the rear section is removable + the flight deck can also be lifted out to allow access to the lower floor + the whole roof of the front section is hinged to open fully, revealing some of the cloaking shield, hyperdrive and other engine components. I've designed a 306-piece tilted stand to display the ship in 'wings open' flight mode - the front of the display stand is fitted with a black 8 x 16 tile, for those who like to have custom UCS plaques on their ships. The display stand + Bloodfin Speeder + Dark Eye probe droids are all FREE downloads on my Rebrickable page :) During 18 months of it's building and design, I've spent hours studying source material for this ship, especially the floorplans - and I've put a lot of effort into keeping it as close to the original as possible without the whole ship becoming overly large. Having the correct proportions with its incredibly unbalanced front and rear sections + those large folding solar panels on the sides was very challenging - and keeping it all sturdy without any sag was quite a task, but it's turned out to be a solid build - you can swoosh this ship around until your arm hurts (I have!) and it'll be fine :) Specifications: This build uses 4244 pieces (not including the display stand, speeder or droids), is 63.4cm (25") long and 48cm (18.9") wide at the wing panels. Height is 18cm (7.1") standing on its landing gear + 42cm (16.6") high at the tip of the highest wing panel whilst in flight mode on the display stand. Weight is approximately 3.3kg (7.28 lb). TL,DR... I totally geeked out and went nuts on the details and here are a million pics of the results:
  22. If you have followed my WIP Post, you will already have the gist of it. I have finally managed to iron out any issues with my Stud.io design and create the instructions. Basically, I have tried to do the following things: Design a completely new tail section. Replace any offensive colours. Design new panels with less studs. Make the overall shape more like the movie Thopter. You can judge for yourself if I succeeded. Instructions and Part List are available here: https://reb.li/m/179131 Here are some more renderings: And some pictures of my prototype (there are some minor differences compared to the final design):
  23. Here is a project that I have been maturing for 4 years and which finally takes shape from this year, inspired by a french comic strip from Arthur De Pins.. Throughout this topic, you can follow the progress of the project and the WIP. This first post will bring together only the completed games and winks to the universe.

  25. Hi everyone! With this new year 2024 I want to start presenting you my latest work, the result of 3 months of work in autumn 2023. It represents a stone bridge with a stream, a dirt road, a couple of small waterfalls and a water mill. All set in medieval times. In 2018 I had built a Medieval Windmill and knew that one day I wanted to expand it. In 2023, however, I was inspired for a much larger and more ambitious project, namely creating a Medieval Village! The village has been divided into 6 modules (for the moment), the windmill therefore represents the first completed module, while today I present to you the second module. This latest moc is based on 4 32x32 baseplates and is made up of approximately 7500 pieces. The water mill also has movements operated by a lever or interchangeable with LEGO motors. The roof of the mill is divided into two opening sections which allow you to observe the internal details, such as the rotation mechanism of the blades and the grain mill. On the upper floor there is a fireplace with some chests and a sleeping room for the baker. On the dirt road I positioned a horse-drawn cart with two Black Falcon soldiers. The whole thing is completed by lush vegetation with a forestman on lookout on a large tree. I hope you enjoy my latest work and stay tuned soon for module #3!
