    All-New TIE Fighter MOC

    I’ve finally finished my first real MOC! My goal was simply to make a minifig-scale TIE Fighter that is as accurate as possible in its proportions and details. (Note: if any of my terminology confuses you, feel free to consult the glossary.) I started working on this in March, after completing my mod of @Jerac’s TIE Fighter (working from his first version). My mod changed a lot of the details, but kept the internal structure of the cockpit and spars. It also kept the wings mostly unchanged—not because I was satisfied with them, but because as a novice, reworking them felt daunting. Wing Hubs I knew that the technic 6-blade rotor had potential for a wing hub (thanks to Koen Zwanenburg) but it doesn’t come in LBG. I found a way to skin it that closely mimics the ship’s greebling, and isn’t too thick. Once I made these wing hubs, I knew I wanted to make a whole new TIE Fighter to match them. Wings I built a rim with the correct size and shape, and filled in the wing panels with my stacked 1x1 technique that suggests ridges running perpendicular to the wing edges. Coincidentally, 1 stud is very close to the right spacing for these ridges, so the overall look is quite accurate. I wanted to minimize gaps around the spokes, which meant using a lot of 1x1 plates (almost 150 per wing). I placed pairs of plates together where possible, to give a suggestion of the subtler parallel ridges. For the spokes I wanted smoothly tapered tiles rather than the standard steps and exposed studs. The spokes are less sturdy this way, but the wings overall are reasonably solid. The angles are a perfect 60 degrees. It’s annoying that TLG printed a tile for the central wheel with quite accurate details, but shifted the angles to 45/90. Spars Once I had the wings I moved inward to the spars, which present a trilemma: ideally you’d want your TIE spars to be cylindrical, sturdy, and free of non-Lego parts. You can have two of the three. My cylindrical, axle-based construction looks far better than stacked plates, but makes for wobbly, droopy wings. With standard Lego axles, this model is for display only. Following Cereal Eating Builder’s lead, I caved and bought metal axles. The hardest detail in the whole model to render was the “shoulder plate” on either side of the cockpit. I made a couple dozen prototypes (some early ones here) before finding one that represented all the angles (so many angles!) and wasn’t too chunky and distracting. I don’t love the gaps and exposed studs, but this is the best solution I could find. Cockpit Exterior I still prefer quarter domes for the cockpit. They really limit interior space but the smoothly rounded shape can’t be beat, and the greebles I wanted to include fit nicely in between them. The main inaccuracy in this model is the size of the canopy and top hatch, which should be 5 studs in diameter at this scale. The only solution would be to scale the ship up to match the 6-stud canopy, or down to the 4-stud version. Maybe someday. The canopy hinge and the quarter domes also push the cannons too low and wide, but I was able to get them just a bit closer than my previous version. I’m convinced that space binoculars are the best piece for the “bowties” beside the canopy, but they seemed impossible to attach. I struggled for a long time to make even an asymmetric connection with a clip or minifig hand, and I almost gave up before hitting on a sneaky solution. Can you guess how I did it? There’s a hint in the interior shots below. Rear The rear cone was a challenge. My previous TIE had a crude version with handlebars and 1x1 clips. I wanted something cleaner, and posing stands (now in LBG!) seemed promising. The trick was filling in the gaps between them. Purists may feel that I’ve cut my pneumatic hoses too short, but I’m pretty pleased with the result. The main issue again is that it’s a little oversized—6 studs wide rather than 5—but I’m ok with it because it’s in scale with the hatch and canopy. I was able to include the cone hump at the top—another oft-overlooked greeble. To me the dark bowties around the engines are an essential detail, and I was determined to include the red engines, which I couldn't fit in my previous TIE. I considered cutting a red hose, but I was ultimately able to work in a nipple tile. Cockpit Structure It was challenging to attach the spars securely to the cockpit. 1x2 bricks with axle holes are the obvious choice, but I couldn’t handle the asymmetry. There aren't many other options, so I ended up using 2x2 bricks with pins, reinforced by 2x4 technic plates and brackets. With metal axles they're almost solid—in spite of the reinforcements, with swooshing the spars can pull free and rotate forward slightly on the pin bricks. The quarter ellipse liftarms are structural, and not only do they make for a smoothly rounded exterior, but their half-stud width is ideal because the details around the edge of the cockpit—the hatch side greebles and the shoulder slopes—are 1 stud wide. TIE builders who prioritize smoothness and disapprove of my wanton greebling might still be interested in this technique. Cockpit Interior I wanted to include the shape of the dark grey “dashboard” and the triangle at the top of the canopy, since these are visible on the exterior model (although missing from the cockpit set). The interior is very constrained by the quarter domes and the structure holding them together. I was less concerned with modelling the interior accurately, but I did want to make sure that it fit a TIE Pilot (with oversized helmet) and that it looked reasonably cool. The pilot sits quite centred in the cockpit. There’s no space for a seat, but the movie set didn’t have one either. I was tempted to add a bunch of interior details with stickers, but once you start with that it’s hard to know where to stop. In the end I restrained myself to just 2: the iconic targeting display, and a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the rear “window”. Other designers have included transparent rear windows in their designs, but I haven’t seen any that put the interior window the correct position—high up behind the pilot’s head. Struggles with Scale This is my first attempt at scale modelling, and in the end I found the proportions are not as precise as I’d hoped. Part of the problem is that the hubs, although reasonably flat, are much thicker than the “real thing”. I wanted to define the overall width by the centre of the wings from the front view, meaning that the chubby hubs encroach into the spars’ space, and the T-shaped end plate gets squashed. But beyond that, my spars ended up being a bit shorter than the reference, for reasons I don't fully understand. I may try to fix this at some point, but I’d probably need to learn digital design to really nail it down. The side view, however, fits like Cinderella's slipper. Acknowledgements & References I’ve enjoyed discussing TIE Fighter building with Jerac, Cereal Eating Builder, and others. (If anyone else would like some feedback about a TIE in progress, get in touch! In building this I’ve gained a lot of knowledge that is really only useful to a freelance TIE MOC consultant.) My primary reference (the white overlay above) was the blueprint from the TIE Fighter Owners’ Workshop Manual. Unfortunately, I’ve recently noticed some inaccuracies compared to physical models. The EFX prop replica seems more reliable, and you can find some pictures of the original props here. Glossary I tried to keep this introduction short and sweet (seriously) but I am prepared to discuss every detail of this model at length if anyone cares to ask. In anticipation, I’ve created a visual glossary of all the greebles I tried to include, so we have some shared vocabulary. What do you think?

    Modified TIE Fighter MOC

    I've made a lot of special modifications myself. Hi, this is my first real post here. Let me know what I'm doing wrong! I built @Jerac's TIE Fighter a couple years ago, and I've been tinkering with it off and on ever since. This was the first MOC I bought and built, and I remain very impressed by the strength, elegance, and ingenuity of the design. I've seen a lot of TIE MOCs since, and Jerac's is probably still my favourite. I wanted to say that clearly at the start, before getting into the nit-picking! Here's what I changed: Wing Gaps I always found the holes in the wings very distracting. They're easy enough to fill with 1x4 tiles, if you remove a plate from the base of the horizontal spokes. The result not only looks better, but holds the spokes in place more securely. I added 1x1 plates to the top and bottom corners to fill another gap. Canopy/Gun Mount I was also dissatisfied with the canopy/guns/controls assembly, which is a precarious stack of rods and clips. It's fiddly and fragile, and leaves extraneous T-pieces sticking out the front. Why did Jerac build it this way? I think because the cockpit's top, front and bottom dishes wrap around the quarter domes and they need to fit snugly to approximate a sphere, so the space available to mount the canopy and guns is incredibly tight. My solution was to mount the canopy on old robot arms. They're the right length, and they have a squared off neck where I've attached the gun mounts, which helps hold the guns in position (at least on 1 axis). Top Hatch Mount The top hatch in Jerac's model sits noticeably to the rear of centre. It's a bit tricky to fix because the hatch mount connects to the top of the central hexagon, which also needs to be positioned precisely. I had to rework my initial solution when I redid the rear - more on that below. Wing Construction I love Jerac's smooth stacked-brick wings, but they give the impression of subtle stripes running parallel to the wings edges, like concentric hexagons, whereas the real TIEs have prominent ridges perpendicular to the edges. It occurred to me that I could suggest these by using tall 1x1 bricks instead of long bricks. Stacked 1x1s do not make a strong wall, but because the hub/spokes/rim design is so secure, the finished wings are plenty solid. The main drawback of this design is that light can shine through the tall seams when you look straight on, lessening the sense of solidity. But I find the overall effect delightful. I used 1x8 tiles for all the spokes, to clear some extraneous studs off the wings. Interior I spent a lot of time trying to mimic the cockpit's triangular panels in some way, but couldn't find a solution at this scale. So I went for a looser interpretation, inspired by the beautiful Inthert version and Jerac's TIE Defender. The interior space in this model is very limited (even the Defender has an extra stud of depth) but I was able to include a lot of detail. I also made space for the newer, oversized TIE pilot helmets. I borrowed the control design from the Bricks Feeder/Inthert interior. I'm disappointed that LEGO has never printed the TIE Fighter targeting display. I may print my own sticker for that. The top hatch isn't functional, but it does need to swing up for cockpit access, so I added some simple details underneath. The scale is way off, but I like the way the 1x2 grills evoke the skylight pattern on the hatch. Cockpit Side Greebling I wanted to include the little dark grey bow ties on either side of the canopy. This was challenging for a few reasons: They should be centred, which means holding a small piece in the middle of a 2-stud space and minimizing the gaps around it. Everything should be curved to match the quarter domes. I also wanted to accommodate interior detailing in this space. Finally, there's an identical pattern in the rear, around the engines. These areas should look similar in front and back (see below). I'm quite satisfied with this solution: Wing Spars The arms (technically "spars") attaching the cockpit to the wings are full of Lego-unfriendly details: cylinders, thin rings and fins, and the notched plates next to the cockpit that slope in like 4 directions at once. Their diameter is small and they need to be strong. I did my best to imitate the details while sticking with Jerac's sturdy plate-based design. I swapped the 1x4 brackets for 1x2s to clear a couple studs off the front. There are more brackets inside to add strength and attach interior details. I tried a lot of different pieces for the bent T detail next to the wings. Pneumatic t-pieces seemed to best capture the shape. I'm dissatisfied with basically every part of these arms, but I haven't seen other versions at this scale that I prefer. Most of the key details are at least present, although crudely represented. Rear The central rear ring is the last piece of the original that I altered (so far). I'd done earlier revisions of the engines and hatch mount that retained the quarter ring tiles. I appreciate their smoothness even though they're too flat, and sink the central hexagon behind a circular cutout. I finally noticed that the outer diameter of this ring should match the top hatch and front canopy – it should be 5 studs (scaled to the overall model) or 6 (matching the canopy and hatch). That pushed me to build a custom ring with the key features of: 6 stud diameter Outer cone shape Inner inverted cone, and Prominent central hexagon with slightly recessed black interior. Drawbacks: I couldn't find a way to keep the red engine centers with this design I also couldn't include the bump on the top of the cone. The top hatch sits ~1mm too far forward (but closer to centre than the original) The outer diameter is 6 studs, but only at the points where the handlebars attach The handlebars aren't angled quite right, so the clips that form the ring are a bit skewed The inner inverted cone is too deep And of course this segmented design is not as smooth as the rest of the model. In spite of all that, I think the shapes are quite accurate for this scale, and I'm satisfied with the result. A Note on Scale The cockpit is about 9 studs tall, including the top hatch and bottom dish. At that scale the front canopy, top hatch and rear cone should all be 5 studs in diameter. It would be interesting to see a TIE MOC scaled up to fit the 6x6 dish – a cockpit diameter of ~11 studs. Conclusion I've changed most of the pieces and the details in this model, without changing much about the structure or general appearance. I'm still tinkering with it. I've got some ideas to rework the wings and spars, but that's quite a big project. Some of these modifications are a matter of taste, but I'm quite pleased with the results. I'm interested to hear others' opinions. Credits In addition to Jerac, I appreciated and drew inspiration from: Inthert and Bricks Feeder: Beautiful interiors Koen Zwanenburg: Clever cockpit side details, more accurate shape of the wing hubs (although I stuck with Jerac's for now) Fuku Saku: Nice front and back cockpit details. The rear cone piece is clean and accurate, but loses the center details. Force of Bricks: Interesting arm details and rear shape. If I do a more thorough redesign I'll likely borrow a lot from this model. Pasq67: Impressive details at a smaller scale. Cereal Eating Builder: Incredible accuracy at a much larger scale. Reference Photos The EFX prop replica seems to be the most accurate model available. This gallery is my main resource.

  7. For ages known as Zebra (a code name before release, similar to banana for Hidden Side), TLG officially announced today (July 1st) the new LEGO Art theme, starting with four sets: 31197 Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe 31198 The Beatles 31199 Marvel Studios Iron Man 31200 Star Wars Sith Each set makes one of 3-4 mosaics, with the Iron Man and Sith sets being combinable to form a mega picture from 3 sets. With one set you can make 1 Beatle, 1 Marilyn Monroe, etc. The prices for each set are US$120/€120/£115. These will be available from August 1st everywhere excluding US and Canada for The Beatles, Marilyn Monroe and the Sith. Iron Man is available universally on August 1st. For those thinking this has been mentioned before, it has, but not in its own deserved thread, and basically only names of sets + theme. There was never the deserved own thread, and no pictures, which is why I’m creating it now! I don’t know about everyone else but I’m hyped for these - though disappointed at the price... Discuss here.
  8. Hello there! Here is my second iteration of one of my favorite ships of Star Wars -- the Delta-7 Aethersprite Delta-7 Jedi Starfighter. @khatmorg & @atlas_er are big influences on this design -- especially the cockpit area of @khatmorg's, and the wings by @atlas_er. Biggest difference in mine is the overall length; it's shorter by two studs (which I think is more accurate). Making it a little smaller in comparison, but still has a lot of detail. Overall I'm really happy with how it came out. I tried my best to eliminate all gaps, and make it smooth as possible. I've very proud of the green accent on the back wings, and how I was able to keep the front wing/hood area smooth. The only thing I'm bummed about is that I couldn't squeeze in rear landing gear, but I love how the smooth underside came out. And the little bit of stickering on the back section to better convey the curve of the green. It's quite sturdy, but it does have some weakish points in the design. Thanks for checking it out!

  10. This is the Endar Spire from the beginning of KOTOR (Knights of the Old Republic) that I designed. It is quite an iconic ship and it's an absolutely massive model at 6,000 pieces. This was probably my longest project that I've ever worked on. The only one that comes close to this in terms of the 'time it took to design' would be the C-9979 Landing Craft which was around 5000 pieces. So this model is actually a lot more structurally sturdy than one might think. There is a massive technic "skeleton" that is reinforced by a lot more technic, bricks, plates, inverted slopes, etc. And the stands help to keep the model up and distribute the weight of this massive beast. The head itself acts as a frontal stand. It aligns perfectly on the ground with the other 2 stands which ensures that it stays nice and sturdy on display. endar spire2 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr endar spire image taking by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr endar spire image taking_2 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr endar spire_8 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr endar spire_6 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr endar spire_5 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr endar spire (white) by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr endar spire (white - orange) by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr The interior: There are 5 "rooms" in this hammerhead cruiser. The largest room is in the back. This is where you first wake up in the KOTOR game and meet Trask Ulgo. The second room is kind of like a bridge of the cruiser - lots of chairs for computers. The third room is the escape pod entry, where there are 3 escape pod entrances. The fourth room is a cargo room/hallway. The fifth and smallest room is another smaller cargo bay. It is also possible to remove the sides walls as seen in one of the images. And color swapping is quite easy as well. I made 2 versions. A light-bluish gray one and a white one. I also did some color variations like orange, yellow, and dark blue just to see what they would look like. Here is a link for the instructions and parts list if anyone was curious: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-89244/RendiliBricks/endar-spire/#details Let me know what you all think!

  12. Hi everyone, this is my first MOC design, a minifig scale UCS style 501st Legion BTL-B Y-Wing Starfighter. The inspiration came after watching the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It was awesome to finally see the BTL-B Y-Wing in 501st colours and I knew instantly I wanted a minifig scale version to go with my other Star Wars minifig scale ships. I've been slowly chipping away at this over the last few months, and I’ve spent a lot of time finessing the shape, proportions, colouring and details to make this design as accurate as possible. I think I have found a good balance of aesthetics, ease of construction and strength, as the design is very robust and "swooshable" for a model this big. It is approximately 1800-2000 pieces (need to update the Studio model before I know for sure), 61cm long, 28cm wide and 9cm high. To keep the proportions and look of the BTL-B Y-Wing correct, the cockpit is built with removable seats to allow minifigs to be placed for display if desired, and I opted to only allow the head of an astromech droid to be added for the same reason. I've made sure to add all of the weapon detailing, including an opening bomb bay with proton bombs, and have also added folding landing gear. I’m finishing off the instructions now and should hopefully have them done in a few weeks. I'll post the link on here once they are complete. Thanks for looking! I hope you like the design and happy to hear any feedback :)
  13. LEGO did a great job in re-releasing R2-D2 as 75308, but there are still some parts not the same as the real one. So I've made the followings: - changed the outlook of the leg's fuel cells - flushed the third leg outlet panels (front and rear) by 1 plate - completed third leg outlet panels by adding the left and right sides - switched the position of the buttons and pillars of the legs (same as the 2012 version) - changed the outlook of the middle exhaust vents - moved the tools compartments further outward and made it taller - filled the gap between the head and the body - more SNOT outlook - push-to-open the lightsaber cover 195 extra pieces are required. Spare parts are also needed, about 80 original pieces will be left. Instruction available at https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-85457 Happy building. Have fun and enjoy!
  14. This is the ARC-170 Starfighter - it's a massive starfighter, both the moc itself and in-universe. I first made the regular version as seen in Revenge of the Sith, and then later I color swapped it to the Muunilinst 10 colors (I did dark blue and regular blue for that). I also color-swapped the regular version to a bunch of different variants just to see what they would look like. The dark blue and yellow looked the best to me. arc170 starfighter by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr arc170 starfighter_2 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr image taking_2 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr Muunilinst 10 (dark blue) muunilist arc170 starfighter by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr Muunilinst 10 (blue) UntitledModel by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr These are the 11 other color swaps I did on the regular ARC-170: https://bricksafe.com/pages/starwarsfan66/arc-170-starfighter-color-variants I didn't want to upload a bunch of unnecessary pictures here. But anyway, the regular ARC-170 ended up being 2102 pieces (including the stand) and the Muunlinst version was 2113 pieces (including the stand). In terms of stability, it is excellent in my opinion. The body of the ship itself is very securely packed with technic, bricks, and plates. And the main wings and 4 smaller wings are all brick-built (with technic liftarms). Those 4 smaller wings can easily "close up" for when the ARC-170 isn't in battle. The larger 2 wings are attached quite securely to the body of the model, but I included 2 small support stands at the ends of each wing just because the wingspan is so large. Though I am pretty confident that the supports will not be needed - of course, the wings will droop a little bit without them just because of their sheer weight. For my C-9979 Landing Craft, I included stands to go underneath each of the 4 wings, but after someone built it in real-life, they told me they didn't even need the stands. By default, I made the instructions to sit on the stand, but I did make an option for landing gear as well. The stand is very simple and tucks into a 4x6 hole on the underside of the model. There are 2 modules of landing gears (one for the front and one for the middle). The front module easily attaches to the front of the ARC-170 and the middle one goes into that 4x6 hole. So in order to display the ARC-170 with landing gear, the stand will need to be taken off. Also, I know that the large wings of ARC-170 are supposed to be light gray underneath the spot where the smaller wings go, but for the regular version, I liked the look better when it was all white. But it is just a simple color swap from white technic liftarms to light-bluish gray technic liftarms to get that accuracy. I used the light-bluish gray on the Muunilinst version though. I'll include a link for the instructions / parts list if anyone wanted to take a look. It will also have some more images of the starfighter as well.

  15. Hello there It's been an awfull long time since I posted something over here. This is a custom projects I started years ago and finally finished (more or less, I still have troubles making decent pictures). The main theme is still the same, Duplo duo's. I used supersculpey for Yoda's head and Luke's hairpiece. For Luke's lightsaber I modded an antena with miliputt. At first I gave Yoda a cape, trying to do so in "the spirit" of Lego Duplo, but it didn't work well at all. So I just inspired myself by the minifigure. Hope you like it.
  16. This is the collection of lightsabers I have designed. It includes most of the well-known sabers in the star wars universe, like Darth Vader, Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, etc. And there are also a lot of not-very-well-known lightsabers that I have designed like Quinlan Vos, Ventress (from Dark Disciple), Mara Jade, Anakin Solo, etc. There are 37 total lightsabers. I may do some more in the future because there are some important ones that I haven't done yet. test by ice chips, on Flickr This is an image with the names of the respective owners of the lightsabers in the Star Wars universe all with names by ice chips, on Flickr And these are probably the ones that a lot of people are familiar with the most: UntitledModel by ice chips, on Flickr I did have to get very creative with a lot of these sabers because since I designed most of these with a 4x4 circular width, I was kind of limited in what I could do. That's just the way it is when designing sabers. Once you pick a width, there are some limitations you have to stick to. But nevertheless, I think these turned out really good. I included lightsabers from all across Star Wars. The Prequel trilogy, Original trilogy, videogames like Fallen Order, KOTOR & SWTOR, and EU legends. What are your thoughts on these sabers? And which one is your favorite? I'm kinda curious to see what saber people think is the best one. And I'll include a link to the instructions for these. This particular link is for the entire collection, but on my Rebrickable profile, I have all of these sabers listed individually as well. https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-88594/RendiliBricks/lightsaber-collection/#details
  17. The Y-45 armored transport hauler, also known as AT hauler, built by Kuat Drive Yards and used for the Galactic Empire, with its very agressive and intimidating design, was a great Midi-scale challenge. Accurately Microfig-scaled (or trophy-scaled), and made of 623 pieces, this MOC features all the typical angles and details of the original cargo ship: agressive cockpit shape, intricate wing angles, lower bridge with its guard-rails and stairs, ion engines and magnetic clamps, holding on a single, secure Lego stand. With very simple connections, both arms can be installed upwards to put the ship in landing mode. ► Instructions for the AT Hauler are available for purchase (high quality 180-page PDF & parts list). If you'd like to buy them, hit me up at flyinspace.mocs@gmail.com or visit my Rebrickable page! More pictures on my Flickr album.
  18. This is a re-built MOC that I made last year which previously had an unusual cone shaped 'air intake' style nose that was apparently sacrilegious to some fans lol... It's been sitting on the shelf re-built for quite a while so I finally got round to taking some pics.I called this the Incom T-88 X-wing fighter (long before the Resistance series was shown!), painted in colours favoured by the 'Flame Squadron'... oh and there's an E-wing attack mode too, good for strafing ground targets ;)

    [WIP] Alien Moon Stalker

    I usually don't post my Studio MOCs on Eurobricks, but a friend of mine IRL said Eurobricks might get a kick out of this one. I've read in several places online that some 80s kids used to use the old Alien Moon Stalker set (#6940, year 1986) as a substitute for an AT-AT when playing Star Wars with their Lego way back when. That makes last year's AT-AT set (#75288, year 2020) the natural starting point for a remake of the Alien Moon Stalker. This is still a rough WIP, lots and lots left to do, but I hope you like the idea! Comments and criticism welcome.
  20. Hey everyone, today I bring you my take on a minifig scale LAAT/i or Republic Gunship. Firstly, this thing is complicated... I started working on this early last year, but took a break from it because trying to figure out how to translate the complex shape of this thing was driving my crazy. While there are a lot of really nice gunships out there, I really wanted to see if I could match the narrow profile of the front of the ship, as well as get the flare out to the back that it has. Needless to say, accomplishing that in Lego is not easy, but I think I came up with a decent solution. The entire upper part of the gunship actually tapers from 6 studs wide in the back, down to 4 in the front. The "floor" of the gunship also tapers, which is one of the most common things people seem to avoid in other MOCs, probably because it's a major pain to do and it messes with the door alignment. The doors utilize technic fig hands and mixel joints to achieve the sloping from the front to back of the gunship. The doors were a real challenge due to the angles, and my first go at it didn't have enough head room to allow for a fig to stand inside, so I had to take another go at it, but this version seems to hold up. As usual a pic with my Delta-7B for scale. And some other colour variants. I've also done some test building to make sure that this thing actually works, I was worried that with all the angles it would be extremely brittle, but it holds together better then I thought it would. Inspiration notes: Under wing supports as well as some frontal structure inspired by Caleb Ricks. Front nose roundness inspired by Maelven. Engine build inspired by Chef Aslopert. Engine cones inspired by Kit Bricksto. Flood/Search lights inspired by David Buchholz.
  21. To me, the “purist” line is drawn at using fake/custom/3D printed moulds and permanent modification. For many of my custom figures, I make pauldrons and kamas out of paper, and sometimes even torso wrap-around things. I also make “paper decals” (idk) where I would usually just create markings and the like which I use blu-tack to stick onto the figure. As LEGO fans, would you approve of this and/or consider it “purist”?
  22. Hello everyone, throughout the last 1,5 I updated you guys regularly in my WIP thread for my Empire Strikes Back in Lego Project. Now I am finally done with the project and I'd like to present all my 63 scenes in this new thread to you. The goal of this long lasting project was to re-create my all time favorite Star Wars movie entirely out of Lego covering all iconing scenes. The most challenging parts for sure were that I wanted to re-create everyting out of Lego so I needed to build all the backgrounds for Hoth, Dagobah and Cloud City as well. After watching the movie like for the 200x time in my life and making notes of which scenes I wanted to build I had quite a long list of 60+ scenes. As I already re-build A New Hope in LEGO in 54 scenes it was clear for me that I didn't want to pay less attention to Empire Strikes Back. Hence I took this challenge and now after 1,5 years I am really happy that I covered all 63 scenes :) I hope you enjoy my project and that you will also follow me on my journey of buidling Return of the Jedi (starting in November 2021) The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (1/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (2/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (3/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (4/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (5/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (6/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (7/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (8/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr The Empire Strikes Back in LEGO (9/9) by Codyaner_bricks, on Flickr PS: you can have a look at all parts in high quality on my FLICKR Album.

  23. Hi! During this summer I've gotten back into building with and designing Lego creations after several years abscence. Two of the first MOCs that I designed are these two. Both of the models are built in the scale of 1:125, meaning that one stud equals one meter (just over three feet). The AT-TE consists of 152 pieces, and the LAAT/i of 198. The AT-TE features rotating guns and (somewhat) poseable legs. The LAAT/i features an opening rear ramp, "sliding" (moveable) side doors, rotating guns and is capable of holding up to ten microfigs. Both xig_brick and ridgedbrick over on Instagram have been huge sources of inspiration. If you would like to see more images of these models, or have a look on some of my other work, please check out my Instagram or Flickr. Best Regards, Dammtuss (a.k.a. Björnbrorsan)
  24. Hey everybody, I'm new to the community but I've been MOC designing for sometime now and I have finished my massive project. I've been working on it for just under two years, The ISD II The Eviscerator. It sits on a single removable stand measuring at 148 studs long with 19,225 pieces. I really wanted to capture that "It doesn't look like Lego" feel and try to give it a studio model vibe. One of my goals for this build was to have only one stand that the model sits on securely. This was an incredible challenge due to the size and weight of the model. In fact, it's what took the most time to develop through out the build. Overall, I'm satisfied with how the model turned out. This is more accurately representing an ISD II Destroyer. I tried to pay attention to every detail I could, based on a couple of star destroyer sources. It's a very modular build making it easier to assemble and disassemble. There is no interior in this model. Just pure structural integrity throughout the entire inside. Just the frame and stand are 6,000+ pieces, but this was my goal. Create as accurate of model as I could, displayed on one removable stand, and not having to limit detail because of weight and size. Anyways, enough rambling: You can view the rest of the photos here: Flickr Album Now here is some great news. If you want to build one yourself, you can! I have made instructions for this build that are available at https://www.brickvault.toys/products/imperial-star-destroyer

    [MOC] AT-RT

    This AT-RT is probably my fifth try to build it in minifig scale, or at least roughly the right size. I guess is's still a little to big but I think it captures the desing of an AT-RT quiet good. Hope you like it. Let me know what you think about my version.
