    [MOC] Daylight to Brickworld

    I will be taking the Daylight to Brickworld... [to be continued] [album on flickr]
  2. I'm a huge fan of the olive green from 42110 and I've been thinking of how to best use the olive green elements from that set. I eventually settled on Toyota's most recent generation of 4Runners. While I have a ways to go, I've made decent progress on the basic chassis and suspension: I've opted for a 1:10 scale but want to use 2 hard springs per wheel to maintain maximum resistance. Body panels are for reference to adjust suspension height. Chassis is partially inspired by filsawgood's Toyota JS as I used it as a test mule for the live axle design: https://filsawgoodltc.blogspot.com/p/lego-suzuki-jimny-sierra-building.html. I'm still waiting on Bricks and Pieces for some parts so the center differential is a placeholder at the moment. I'm interested in implementing Nico71's CVT design eventually: https://www.nico71.fr/trophy-truck-with-continuously-variable-transmission/. The rear live axle is currently a mess as I balance the various linkages, but I have to add that unfortunately there is no read diff lock like there is in the TRD Pro, I don't think I have the ability to effectively build one yet. One good thing about the higher ride height is that there is plenty of room for the spare wheel. I've also designed it to have a slight front caster angle, though I still have kinks to work out. If you have any suggestions or reference MOCs I should borrow techniques from feel free to make suggestions. March 20: Added prototype roof, doors, and partial front grille. I like the additions from some angles but I'm not completely satisfied. I also still need to work more on the frame and chassis to increase rigidity.
  3. im finally done with my tank moc! i hope you like it if possible like and share it on insta & facebook (links below) it comes with a detachable trailer and a 3DOF arm thanks @thealvacado for the arm I've improved the bracing of the 8 tooth to the 40 tooth gears as they were constantly popping out also changed positioning of some things there is a 4 pin connector on the end so that its much easier to change the attachment on the end I hope you like it :) spent quite a while making this https://www.instagram.com/p/CdnoQmspEut/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet https://www.facebook.com/544771685/posts/pfbid032Jr1QQfEXsTZbEqxBUDAR7LWMGfGzE9wpor93kkCivLbZfqt3ujtvHVqyUvEDkpzl/?d=n https://youtu.be/5j2kXYvjlAM https://youtube.com/shorts/PzlFRePGSP4?feature=share https://youtu.be/X7KmZLrbvlw https://flic.kr/s/aHBqjzQeX3
  4. Hello! this is my first actual moc post here, and hopefully far from the last. I hope you all enjoy this Resistance A-Wing design! I must give a big shoutout to Gumbinger, as a few elements are lifted from his RZ-2 design. I borrowed the general dimensions, the conical-shaped front deflector shield generators, but most notably the engine designs are almost exactly the same. I lowered the height of the top fins, but otherwise, I thought everything about his engine design was too good not to use. This design was the result of about a few weeks worth of first building in stud.io and then some back and forth of testing in real bricks and revising. Compared to the RZ-1, the RZ-2 has a lot more subtle, smoother and straighter angles. The angles coming from the front of the RZ-1 are slightly curved and round out at about the front of the cockpit, with the top and bottom surfaces becoming seemingly parallel with each other. With the RZ-2, the angles taper back from the front very evenly back past the cockpit, without ever really rounding out. This gives the side silhouette a very sharp triangular look, and it's one of the things I wanted to capture most. I feel like it turned out pretty well! The green markings on the red one stick out in an unfortunate way, I really had no idea how to incorporate them more smoothly into the design. They sit right on top of the old style 1x2 finger hinges. If I liked it less, it would be easy to remove the markings and just continue the white tiling. A small thing but I'm only just now noticing that the red 1x1 tile on the ship's left lower fin should be dark red, not white There are definitely a few areas that really could use improvement. Ideally, the panels on the middle sides of the ship could be stronger and easier to put together. It's not totally fragile or unswooshable but I don't love that area's construction either. There's also a good few gaps here and there, I feel like the part directly behind the windscreen could be more smoothly rounded, that area was surprisingly hard. I'm happy to accept all these flaws and just call this a version 1. After a while I'd like to come back and try to revisit all the problem areas in a version 2. Hope you enjoyed the model!
  5. Hello, folks! Without long introduction - here are all my brickheadz so far (more than half are new, others - you could see them, but they have been slightly reworked). Note for mobile users - there will be many pics to load for your device. There are free building instructions for all of them except first two creations, but all that revenue will be transferred to the accounts of organizations providing assistance to Ukraine. I'll add some comments by the way, but pics should do better :) 1) Newlyweds - kinetic model Animation (it may take some time to load): What is love? Baby don't h.. Hm, that's not what should have been said :) This couple celebrates their marriage with great dance. By the way, almost 22000 ukrainian couples got married since the beginning of the war in Ukraine. Love and peace will win! This model is driven manually by rotating a gear in back of the stand and can be motorised if you connect any motor you have to it. Given that the stand, groom and bride are separate models that work together, you can re-insert the bride and groom to make them rotate in the range you want. It also means you can use this stand to make your own brickheads "dance" as long as they have similar structure (all internal mechanics). Building instruction: Rebrickable Important note: all proceeds from the sale of this creation will be transferred to the accounts of organizations providing assistance to Ukraine. Your contribution is very important! 2) Ukrainians A brave cossack; his younger brother; beatiful girl - they all can be the symbols of Ukraine. Let's take a closer look: This brave cossack has an earring in the left ear. Years ago it meant he was the one and only son of his mother. He wears traditional cossack pants - "sharovary" and traditional shirt - "vishivanka". Also, his hairstyle is called "oseledets" or "chub". Animation: Young girl. She also wears traditional combination of jacket and an embroidered skirt. Her flower wreath with colored ribbons is a symbol of youth and girlhood. Animation: Baby cossack - a symbol of ukrainian kids. Animation: Buiding instructions: Rebrickable Important note: all proceeds from the sale of this creation will be transferred to the accounts of organizations providing assistance to Ukraine. Your contribution is very important! 3) Iron man with glow effect Animation: To use him as a pocket defender or just as a nightlight - it's up to you) It's a rework of set #41604, if you already have it - that's at least 40% of needed parts. You can use any PF-compatible power source to make it glow (such as 8881, 88000, 8878 and others). Free building instruction: Rebrickable 4) Ghost rider with glow effect Animation (without a chain): When it's cold, when it's dark, when there is no hope... Here is our hero - he brings light, warmth and hope for better times! You can use any PF-compatible power source to make it glow (such as 8881, 88000, 8878 and others). Free building instruction: Rebrickable 5) Polar four It's not just a company of polar habitants - it's a family: dad, mom, son and a cute bear cub in a sweater that, I bet, behaves and is perceived as a second son :) Animation: Animation: Animation: Animation: Also, you can build a silmplier and less parts-hungry version of a bear cub (without embroidery on the sweater): Free building instructions: Rebrickable 6) Popeye the Sailor Animation: Give this guy a spinach - and he will do an impossible!

  6. Hey everyone, This is it! After the Torment, the Negotiator proudly joins my Midi-Scale capital ship collection, engineered with the same philosophy in mind: maximizing accuracy, features and proportions of the original model in a moderate size. Made of 3,145 pieces, 68cm (27 inches) long, weighing 1,6kg, the Negotiator is a medium-sized, modular Venator-class Star Destroyer holding on a single, unique Lego stand. This piece of work is the result of weeks of designing, engineering and intense testing. I wanted the Negotiator to be dense, massive-looking, intricate and packed with detail, while being compact and manageable. Building at such a scale, I had to take into account every possible constraint (balance, weight distribution, structure sturdiness) while never compromising any aesthetics (SNOT look, thickness, greeble). The Negotiator features every intricate part of the studio model: turrets, hangar and docking bays, engines, bridge, greeble... with utter attention to detail and proportions of the original ship, as seen in the Clone Wars movie. Hope you like it! ► Instructions for the Negotiator are available at Brickvault. All pictures on my Flickr page !

    [MOC] Improved Ulysses space probe

    With the re-release of the rather controversial and hard-to-get Ulysses space probe VIP award, I want to share an updated version of my own custom Ulysses space probe and IUS (Inertial upper stage) that fixes all the problems with the official set. It's now properly scaled to match the Discovery's 1:70 scale and has way more detail (ie: no more yellow!) that matches the real-life probe. I also added a proper display stand that mimics the style from 10283 so it looks cohesive when displayed alongside the shuttle. Additionally, like the Hubble space telescope, It can fit in the shuttle's cargo bay, but now there is much more room to spare! Here's a side by side comparison between it an the original VIP promo. I have no idea why they decided to make the set so fat! If anyone wants to make one for themselves and skip the scalpers, I did make instructions which are available on my rebrickable page for free! The whole thing is around 250 pcs, and I estimate the parts cost should be around $20-30 USD (plus shipping) on BL.
  8. Hi! Today I'm starting my new Castle project it's called... THE TRICKY AMBUSH the project will present a diorama with the ruins of the castle. Brave Black Falcons warriors will want to destroy the new machine of their greatest enemy - Raven Knights This is where my new siege machine comes in - the catapult Contains 187 parts, and the instruction is now on rebrickable! https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-107421/EDGE OF BRICKS/siege-catapult/#details Range - it depends on how I shoot, with the blockade it is only 40 cm, without it even 150 cm! Much more about this project here: I'm starting the construction site soon! See you soon!

    [MOC] 1940 Ford Deluxe Station Wagon

    Huge shoutout to w35wvi for helping me throughout the build and rendering these amazing pictures for me! Thank you very much! The Ford Deluxe In 1937, Ford introduced the Ford Deluxe to fill the gap between the base model "Standart" and the luxury Lincoln offerings. This marketing approach was in response from the different General Motors brands, (Cadillac, Buick, Oldsmobile, Pontiac and Chevrolet), and the Chrysler brands, (Chrysler, Desoto, Dodge and Plymouth). The Deluxe line was build for three years untill it was discontinued in 1941, after the Mercury Eight sales progressed. The 1941 Ford line included the De Luxe and Super De Luxe trim, but these vehicls were not marketed as a seperate line. About the '40 Deluxe In 1940 the Ford Deluxe got it's last facelift, featuring a brand new grille and a sharper hood. The changed front turned out to be one of the most iconic car fronts ever. The fstaest engine that year was the 239 cui (3.9 L) "Y-Head" V8 which produced 95 hp. The '40 Deluxe came in nine different body styles: Coupe, Convertible, Pickup, Tudor Sedan, Fordor Sedan, Sedan Delivery, Ambulance, Convertible Sedan and last but not least Station Wagon or also Woodie Wagon. The 1940 Ford Deluxe is often called the best pre-war Fords of it's kind. What are Woodies? Wood-bodied station wagons, affectionaly known a Woodies, may be gone, but are certainly not forgotten. Originally invented to transport train passengers and their luggage, they became a american icon and also a huge part of the surf culture. Around 1920, car manufacturers started to combine the easy-to-work-on metal and good-looking and structual wood. Wood for cars was used for 30 more years, but it was getting a more and more rare. The last real Woodie with structual wood, the Buick Roadmaster Station Wagon, went of the market in 1953. From then on, wood was only used as a trim piece and got replaced by wood foil in the 1960s. This 1940 Ford Deluxe Station Wagon was built in 1940, pretty much in the peak of the Woodie era. About my MOC As always, I had lots of fun designing this model because these shapes are something I've never done before. This model is basically the complete opposite of my last model, the 1971 Plymouth Road Runner. I'm really happy with the end result, I think the Sand Green goes great together with the Tan and Dark Orange of the wood. w35wvi had a lot of great ideas, for example the rear lights. The interior is mostly made by him. This car has an detailed interior and supports two minifigs. The model is about 8 studs wide, 21 studs long and 6 bricks and 2 plates high. You can use this model as a display piece but you can also play with it. The only problem is that the rear wheels rubb a bit on the fenders. The instructions for this model are easy to follow and for free. If you want to modify this model, no problem, just download the Stud.io 3D file and start building. If there are any problems with the instructions, please contact me. I spent a lot of time and effort in this model so I would be happy if you reply to this topic! I plan on building three more versions of this car, so stay tuned. Watch the FORDS go by! -- 1940 Ford Advert You can find instructions for this model on my Rebrickable page.
  10. Hi everyone, I'd like to share with you a MOC I made based on the game Into the Breach. I have made one complete map / level of the game, which can actually be played something like a board game. It has a modular construction so it could be rearranged to make different levels. Let me know what you think. Here is a video and images:

    (MOC) DSB IC3 (8-wide)

    Presenting another of my Danish State Railways’ (DSB) trains redesigned to 8-wide and digitally rendered (with a bonus livery)... DSB IC3The Danish State Railways’ (DSB) highly successful and innovative InterCity 3 (IC3) passenger train was co-developed by Siemens Duewag in Germany and ABB Scandia in Denmark.The train is operated by DSB in Denmark and Sweden, by Renfe Operadora in Spain and by Israel Railways in Israel.Amtrak in the USA and Via Rail in Canada have tested the train in the past.A trainset consists of three units, two diesel motor units (MFA and MFB) and one intermediary unit (FF).Up to five trainsets can be coupled together. 96 trainset were built for DSB from 1989 to 1991.All are still in service today.My model: Named "Jørgen Vig" Scale: 1:48 Length: 157 studs (MFA: 55 - FF: 47 - MFB 55) or approx. 122 cm Width: 8 studs Bricks: 2.842 (MFA: 1.005 - FF: 832 - MFB 1.005) Locomotion: 2 x 9v or 2 x PF/PUP train motors Power: 9v, 2 x LEGO AAA battery boxes or 2 x BuWizz battery boxes Control: 9v, PUP, SBrick, PFx Brick or BuWizz Designed: 2022 Conversion of my 7-wide model from 2017 to 8-wide with more accurate dimensions. Very high setting render from Stud.io with custom decals added in the PartDesigner tool. Its able to navigate R40 but just barely and would look rather silly tho: Interior with seats for 83 minifigs: Decorative side design for the bogies - a combination of parts and the molded decorative side for train motors: The coupling part can be change to a Liftarm Thin 1x4 (BL#32449) when combining several trainsets. Technique used for the sliding doors: Removing the 1 x 4 Tile as shown enables the door to slide open as a play feature. The fixed outer doors are a necessary part of the construction otherwise the very long body breaks too easily due to the roof being removable. However, they are designed to be rebuilt open when needed and the trainset stationary on display: The trainset is (fictionally) named Jørgen Vig with the crest of Billund added: Bonus livery: Livery when Amtrak tested the IC3 Flexliner DMU (Diesel Multiple Unit ) in 1997:
  12. CROSSHAIR My second release in the buildable figure series from The Bad Batch. The scale of the figure is the same as my other moc of Tech. These are both done in the same scale as the official buildable Harry Potter buildable figures by LEGO. I'm really happy with how the sniper rifle and the helmet came out. I plan on creating the Clone Force 99 version of Crosshair as well. Hunter, Echo and Wrecker are also in the works. Specifications: Pieces: 1178 pieces Height: 11.8 inches / 29.8 cm Width: 7.5 inches 19 cm Length: 7.5 inches 19 cm

    [MOC] 5pin trucks

    Hello! I want ot share my car models. Previously designed trucks and cars 4pin wide, I thought that the truck should be wider than the car - whitch means 5pin, since 6pin - its too much :) 4pin trucks can be seen here p.s. If I made a mistake in the section - please forgive me and move the topic to the ride one. Thank you for the attention! Next trucks ( Which is betten - add new models in the first (main) post or in the following comments? ) My topics: micro city + micro village
  16. February 1905: New prototype electric multiple units delivered to the Lego Railroad and Tramway Company (LRTC). With Botanical Gardens completed, I wanted a nice straightforward project to round off, and so I decided to create some appropriate Edwardian trains to go with the station. The first electric commuter railways ran in the UK in the 1900s using a variety of designs - many influenced by American practice - mainly using third (plus fourth) rail DC systems. Rather than pick a particular train and fail to replicate it, I decided to create a variety of atmospheric Lego-esque motor coaches with the same basic structure, representing the pioneering designs of times past. 8-studs wide was chosen because I wanted them to hold a useful (for commuter rail) number of minifigures (the lowest capacity design seats 12 with 9 standing). The advantages of imaginary rolling stock means that the designer is the sole arbiter of realism! Inspiration comes from the London Underground and Lancashire & Yorkshire railways amongst others, as well as later designs by the NER, L&NWR and L&SWR. I wanted to model tumblehome - a distinctive staple of British railways - with companies trying to squeeze as many people as possible into the restricted loading gauge. Doing this realistically either involves mind bending SNOT or else lots of extra weight and no room inside for minifigures (or both). In the end I settled for aircraft parts to get the smoothest simplest result. The result is a bit extreme, but I think I just got away with it. The Intention was strong imposing looking period pieces. Thoughts: These are all unmotorised and the doors don't open, I am completely at peace with that! The colour scheme is determined by part availability, I'm not a Great Western fan! Annoyingly, the new lantern has a stud both sides, meaning it can't hang vertically from a clip (surgery was required). I am looking forward to a red version, yellow as a safety colour is a relatively recent invention. Suggestions for improved door handles welcome, the plates used almost work but are not quite right. Ditto luggage racks, the solutions used don't work well for many reasons, but whatever I use has to be implementable in a two-studs-wide and six-studs-wide version. Car No 1 has external wiring on the roof for electric lighting. The wires are chopped up antenna (unfortunately not available in white). Bars would be too thick, leading to the dreaded half-plate problem. Suggestions for less clunky lamp holders welcome, they need to be circular. All other suggestions welcome, including for variations on these designs, I have parts left over.
  17. 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. ?

    [MOC] Mazinger Z

    Hi all, After posting pics of my childhood hero Grendizer, I'm sharing some of his cousin Mazinger Z ! He's one of the most famous giant robots of Japan, and I tried to get his proportions right while maintaining great posing value, with joints on all the important places - it's been a challenging build ! I'm very happy with the result - so much that I made some adversaries for him, such as Doublas M2 : When the fight gets very intense, Mazinger can suffer - Here's what he looks like, inspired by the fight he lead in his final episode : And I'like to share a special version I made, inspired by the proposal seen on the Lego Car Blog to build in yellow and blue, which prompted me to make a symbolic gesture to support democracy : The fight is hard. War is ugly. But these cartoons - Mazinger, Grendizer - taught us life is more important than everything. And freedom is paramount. You can see more pics on my Flickr album ! Alexandre

    Venus Flytrap

    Hi, i want to share with you my latest creation. A Venus for our botanical collection :) LEGO IDEAS - Venus Flytrap
  21. 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 _______________

    [MOC] Mage Tower

    It's been almost a year since I posted my tavern, so it's time to introduce the latest MOC. This time it's a magician's tower, inspired by Goethe's "The Sorcerer's Apprentice". On one level of the tower, the water mage's apprentice made a "small" mistake in the summoning. The rooms were flooded and he just made it onto the balcony. The apprentice has not noticed that on the other side, the Kraken summoned into the tower is about to break out. The other mages of the tower have now gathered to defeat the beast. The Fire Mage has summoned an elemental, while the Storm Mage has taken to the skies and throws the first bolt of lightning towards the Kraken. The black mage has summoned a wraith to fight for him while the white mage is still gathering his power. The dryad has grown a tree so her elemental can fight at the right height. Despite the uproar, the astrologer has not allowed himself to be distracted from his studies. His power is certainly not needed that much... Meanwhile, the church has sent a stoic inquisitor and his two guardsmen. The water magician herself is at the market and hasn't noticed all the hustle and bustle. The tower is approx. 85cm high, unfortunately I don't know the number of parts used. The tower will be integrated into my medieval town, probably on a hill opposite the church.

  23. Welcome to Harry potter custom builds and moc's. I'm loving the new Harry Potter range of sets but there is always room for improvement. Interested to see how people have altered, added to the existing sets or just gone crazy and built something themselves. Looking forward to seeing your magical creations.

    [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
  25. Some of you may have saw my "YT Corellian Transport Thread" - This is what I've been working on. (Those who know - please don't share my pics - as I'm keeping things simple for now) Tonight I've hit roughly the 45-49% Mark in terms of proof of concept design wise. So now I feel like revealing the work to get some community feedback/encouragement. To date - no ones ever done one - there's been some miniatures - some rather "smallish" models - but nothing like UCS scale. EDIT: Seems I wasn't the first. Per @Geihlen who found this -> Vieral's Otana - 2012 - 10 years back - not bad - certainly didn't have the luxery of parts we have today. Google didn't see this either - not in any MOC DB's - I did in fact reach out to him as a result. I've been wanting to do this since I first saw this ship. Little background first: https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Star_Wars:_X-Wing_Alliance Back in 1999 this game showed up - I grabbed a copy - and saw this Falcon like ship for the first time and fell head over heels in love with it. To be honest - I never liked the falcon that much - yes its the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy - but as Leia said when she first saw it - its ugly (inferred or otherwise) - The Otana however was glorious in shape and design. As a lego maniac I wanted to build one. Fast forward to today - I now understand why no one's really done one yet - or at least tried and nearly went bald/insane. The ship unlike the YT-2400 and the 1300 is very different in that the cockpit is down the center-line - and it has a larger "saucer/dome" section in the main hull of the ship. Add to that - 1990's computer graphics doesn't help much in rendering. Little to no "hard facts" on this ship which makes it a bit of a challenge to interpret the design. Funny enough - everyone thought I was building the YT-2400 - which is well known as the Outrider which is funny because its already been done - quite nicely I might add (as did copy off the engine array design of one hehe) Some Info on the Otana (keep in mind - open to interpretation) - https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Otana Ive decided to go with this rather nice layout design - with some room to stretch/squeeze as needed. I've put a lot of thought into this project over the years - thankfully I didn't attempt this until now. As one of my new community friends @Kdapt-Preacher pointed out - there are very nice pieces recently released that make these challenges "possible". Thankfully the biggest blessing as this is a symmetrical ship that allows for clone/copy once I get one side done. Hence my unveiling. I've also seen as I researched prior to Thanksgiving - that people have been literally screaming for this MOC - so I'm excited to be in the running for the likely first second? one done of this type or scale - certainly what I call "UCS". So I'm hoping this will get the fans to come out of the woodwork. After many months of work - its ready for poking and prodding before finishing touches. Some questions I'm expecting that ill try to answer: 1: How big are we talking? - Roughly the size of the UCS Falcon - measures at (currently) 32"x24"x11" at 7.5k-7.6k pieces. 2: Are you going to build this? YES - of course I am - but it will take time to budget and gather parts - right now I need to make sure this thing is ready to be built - still need finishing touches. 3: What kind of model aside from UCS? Playable? Insides? - Not a "play model" - there will be a cockpit that ill try to have something to show for it insides wise but this isn't going to be that kind of design - maybe in the future - but not for this "iteration". It will likely require a stand or a cradle as there are weight concerns/structure wise. 4: Are you going to post instructions if so how much? Yes at some point - but I'm undecided on whether i charge or not. Its taking 10's if not 100's of hours to get here - So I may have to consult with other designers and ask for suggestions advice. 5: This (insert this bit here) looks wrong. - Yep there's many bits that look wrong - feel free to point out and suggest. Right now the following areas are "no touchy" - Dome Suacer sections (There will be 4 - 2 on each side) - that thing has stolen days from me in redesign. I may end up having to redo it - however its looking very good. The rest vary depending on the critiquing. My to-do list will be posted so you can check that if your curious. 6:Scaling is off - yep it likely is - it was VERY bad early on as some of my new friends pointed out. Again - check to-do list before pointing something out. 7: Otana has dual gun turrets! - Don't Care :P I'm going Quad Guns - I however would like to figure out where to stick a/the Ion Cannon(s) at (Suggestions are welcome!) (In truth this is not really a big deal but Its just my little "dispute" from the game) - Yes I totally ripped the Falcon's turret off and "smashed" it to fit. I'm open to redesigning this. Yep ok you win - its not the Otana if its not to spec. 8: You going to make changes after release? - I'm going to avoid doing this for obvious reasons - so I'll try not to "rock the boat" with perfectionist syndrome. 9: Bonus Feature - Gun Turrets that drop from hidden hatches (Ion Cannon/Laser Cannon) with sliding hatches. Todo list: 1: Get some volunteers who are willing to help me evaluate this carefully and MAYBE do some test builds to make sure this will hold up. 2: Design a Cradle/Stand/Plaque 3: Surface "Candy"/Greebles/etc. 4: Cockpit needs some refinement (inside) 5: Part Audit (make sure I'm using readily available parts and nothing stupid insane aside from obvious (3 parts estimated at this point) 6: Instructions (cringe) Major Phases: Phase 1: Proof of Concept - done - ready for evaluation. Phase 2: Detail it out Phase 3: Audit to make sure the bloody thing won't fall apart and can be built out (will be looking for volunteers to test/poke) - with colors. Consider bricks and price. Phase 4: Instruction Manual (I'm not looking forward to this) Phase 5: Build it! And pray it works. Phase 6: Release! (1.0) And that's that.....hope you guys are excited as much as I am. Biggest thanks and shout outs to @Kdapt-Preacher with his tolerance of my ranting/screaming/spamming of my progress and "Darth Soban" who gave me inspiration for the dome sections. Those who are interested in helping me out - PM me and we can discuss - I strongly advise you get Discord because these boards are not suited to up to minute detailed chats. The goal is to make sure those who decide to shell out money for this - won't regret the investment (like me for instance). I will charge for instructions yes - but that's yet to be determined.
