  1. Hello all! This is my first attempt at a UCS style MOC. I've been wanting to redo all my playset Star Wars sets, so I decided to start with the TIE Fighter, and I am really happy with the results. If you want to get the instructions, I posted them on ReBrickable for download. Here is the model from the front and back: And here it is with my other UCS sets: For those who are interested, here is some of the earlier versions of the model. First, this is what I dubbed the fat TIE. Then, the wings got slimmed down. At this point they were still plates instead of bricks. This was the last iteration before I built the physical model. It looks a lot like the final version, but it could not support its own weight, so the cockpit and arms were completely changed.
  2. Hello, I'd like to present here my current project - Venator in UCS scale. I set few requirements: - as faithful to the original model as possible - completely SNOT/studless - interior (all 4 hangars) - use only active and relatively accessible Lego parts - easy to transport in separated modules - the same size like my previous Venator
  3. 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
  4. Hello Eurobrickers! I have a great announcement for you guys, especially those who are interested in Cavegod's UCS AT-AT. Over the past month or so, I have worked a countless number of hours in order to bring all of you guys something that this MOC deserved ever since its creation, a proper instruction manual. Yes, that's right, the famed issues of LDD will no longer be apart of this project thanks to this manual. Now I'm sure you're wondering, how big is a 6000+ piece manual? Well, to answer that question, the manual is a massive 1,089 pages. No that is not a typo, ONE THOUSAND AND EIGHTY NINE PAGES!!! In order to receive this manual, it is available for a price of $35 per copy. For information or to talk to me about purchasing a copy, please PM me or email me at . If it is a common question and not one specific to you, please feel free to comment it here, and I will answer it, unless you want to PM or email me. A special thanks goes out to both Cavegod and drdavewatford. Cavegod designed a masterful MOC, one of the greatest ever, and drdavewatford was kind enough to allow me use of some of his photos throughout the manual. This could not be achieved without you guys! Enough of me talking, here are some images directly from the manual:
  5. 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 A rebrickable page with a parts list is available here: Here are some pictures of the MOC and of the pdf manual:
  6. Hello everyone! I've recently got back into LEGO as an adult after a 20 year hiatus. My last LEGO sets purchased were the initial 1999 wave of Star Wars sets and with the 20th Anniversary sets released last year I was pulled back in by nostalgia. Sets today are so much more complex and well thought out and the ideas and building techniques that the community come up with are really inspiring. I am an engineer by trade and work with 3D software frequently, I credit many of the skills I've developed over my life due to the foundation that LEGO provided during childhood. I really enjoy having to solve problems using the limited catalog of parts that LEGO currently provides, it really fosters creativity in an aging brain. I decided to jump headfirst into Mortesv's Nebulon-B MOC in February and I was hooked by the complex construction methods and thought I'd give it a try myself. Rogue One is my favorite Star Wars movie and when looking online, I hadn't seen too many Hammerhead Corvette MOC's at UCS "scale" and thought I would start there. Here is the 97% completed model, there a few pieces missing that I am still needing to source but its almost completely done. I tried to make it in the similar 1/250ish scale that the Nebulon-B is in, but it looks to be ever too slightly larger. Trying to find reference photos that show each angle were challenging and many photos show the ship with completely different features. I tried to match the movie model, but alas there are some creative liberties made. Without an exact 3D model, its hard to get every detail just right. The model is almost completely solid, save the front and rear which are shells. All of the engines and center section are modular and completely removable. The entire model is "swooshable" but at 9lbs its really heavy! I haven't worked with LDD or, but I plan to make a digital version as well and possibly release instructions if there is enough interest. I welcome any and all feedback, that's how we improve and make things better! More photos on Imgur, I can only get one photo on here due to file size.

    [WIP] UCS Jabba's Sail Barge

    Work In Progress Ever since I bought the Sail Barge (75020) in 2013, I fell in love with the ship. It quickly became my favorite set. Sadly, recently, I've been taking apart most of my non-UCS sets to make room for the bigger models and to have more pieces to MOC with. I had refrained from wrecking the Barge and the MTT from 2007 because they were my two favorite sets. Eventually, when I got into making car MOCs (Chevrolet Bel Air and Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II), I took both sets apart to make a brown Plymouth Special Deluxe but, after seeing I didn't have enough brown bricks to go through with the project, all the pieces just laid there. Now, while waiting for the UCS Millenium Falcon to come back in stock, I've been having the minifigure-scale fever. I've built a couple of rebel ships (X-Wing (MOD), Y-Wing (WIP), A-Wing (Bought the latest one)) and now, after seeing all he brown pieces I had in stock and all the cool minifigures I wanted to use for some iconic scene, I've tackled Jabba's Sail Barge - The Khetanna. Here it is with my Desert Skiff and the brand new parts that have just arrived: There's a full interior for the barge. Kitchen, droid torture room, "lobby", driver's cabin and, of course, the party room at the back. I'll post pics of the interior as well as more of the outside once I make some progress with the new parts.
  11. Finally, an official addition to your Rebel Fleet is here! After over a year of tweaks and specifics, mortesv's CR-90 Corvette is officially ready to be released to the public! The MOC itself contains 2,808 parts, and its manual is 133 pages long. The MOC is built to the same scale as the Nebulon-B, making a perfect addition to a rebel fleet. Lots of interest has been generated for this MOC, and mortesv and I are really glad to make its release to the community! Looking forward to seeing all of the improved fleets as well as those that will begin with this ship. If you would like to build this MOC, we are happy to share it with you in exchange for $30. Included is the pdf instruction manual, an xml part list, LDD files, and any help you need throughout the process of making the MOC. For more information please PM me or contact me at A rebrickable page will be available soon, but for now the xml part list will be included Here are some pictures of the MOC and of the pdf manual:–-blockade-runner-tantive-iv/

    Star Destroyer - Set 75055 UCS Mod

    As beautiful as it is, not everyone has either the funds nor the display space for the UCS Star Destroyer. To that end, I offer a highly detailed yet modestly sized alternative that is a modification of an existing set, 75055. This is a model of Vader's Imperial-I class Star Destroyer Devastator as seen in Rogue One and A New Hope, but can also be reconfigured using easily swapable modular parts into an Imperial-II class Star Destroyer as seen in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The original set has had the internal playset removed, a complete ventral hull added with main hangar, detailed engines, and two new command towers. The model has been slightly enlarged to 1/2700 scale and is 23.5" long. The command tower, main batteries, and dorsal axial cannons are modular to convert between versions. The Mk I also has removable waist mounted quad cannons and engine thrust vanes. Completing the model is a display stand and a microscale Tantive IV Corellian Corvette, that while slightly overscale still fits perfectly in the main hangar and can be attached there. I used photos of the original Devastator filming model from A New Hope and the larger Avenger filming model from The Empire Strikes Back as reference.

  13. Hi guys, so what happened was that I accidentally build a BRAND NEW EF76 Nebulon B Medical Frigate! (It is ok if you skip past all the text and jump straight to the pictures below :) ) A rainy Saturday afternoon in December, I decided to put my old Nebulon model back together after it had been displayed at AFOLCon. Since I had to build the entire thing again, I thought it would be fun to see if I could improve it in some way and update the design. Thus I revisited the site I had used the first time I designed the model. They have 200+ pictures of the model used in the movie. The model was one of the last finished models created for the Empire Strikes Back back in 1980. As with most ILM models it was made from a wonderful cocktail of kit-bashed and custom-made parts. If you look closely at the studio model, you can find old model kit parts – warship hulls, rockets, racecar fenders, engines of all sorts, and different kinds of weaponry. Even the frames used to hold the different kit parts have found their purpose. Back when I was building the old version of the ship I even found some guys trying to recreate the studio model – identifying the old model kits parts and all, a few years later the guy is still at it! But I digress… Looking at the pictures again I got a few ideas for modifications and extra details. But, more importantly, it somehow looked like the front half maybe needed to be… bigger?? I knew that the official 300m length and 72m width of the ship did NOT fit the proportions of the studio model. I had taken that into account when building the first version of the ship – where I repeatedly had to redesign the entire front again and again to hit the correct proportions. But looking at the pictures with fresh eyes it still looked “off” from certain angles. However, I couldn’t pinpoint how much exactly needed to be done… Until, I found the Empire Strikes Back BlueRay! On the BlueRay there were additional pictures AND a video of the movie model rotating. The goals were (as always) to get the proportions and details of the ship as accurate as possible. And, using the BlueRay material, I discovered that the entire front needed to be MUCH bigger than before to be accurate. Thus, a brand new design process began. During this process I built an entirely new front half of the ship with a ton of new features, which made the old model look, well, like a model. When that was done I began tweaking and rebuilding the rest of the ship; the neck, the back sections, the aft Deflector Control tower, the engine detailing, etc. etc.. Even the mini Falcon needed to be changed to another model entirely to fit with the larger construction. In the end I had built a brand new model! When designing the old model I had been pretty uncompromising when it came to angles of the ship. I wanted to get everything as close to the movie model as possible and not just having either straight or 45degree angles - this mantra has continued with the new model. This meant there were no easy solutions to make most of these angles. The “off” angles combined with all the specific detailing resulted in the original ship ending up using more than 450 types of bricks. This was also due to the discrete coloring found in the movie model, which I tried to replicate. Due to the much increased size of the new model it can afford much greater detailing – especially the front half, which was way too small before, is now infinitely more detailed compared. As I had originally done with the engine section, I could now begin to interpret every little piece of detailing on the front of the studio model. This also means that the brick type count with the new model has gone past 500 – and the ship is now several thousand bricks larger than before. Enjoy! This ship has a ton of detail and sections so I have tried sorting the pictures a bit – beginning with the front. The Front The Medical Frigate is a very “forward heavy” model. The entire front section takes up nearly half of the models total length (and much than half of the bricks). The front section has several defining features: The huge dark water tank, the antenna arrays and the dominating “stalactite” housing numerous smaller pods. The water tanks sports a lot of piping - but also a lonely canon (AKA a dbg 6246a screwdriver :) ). The Stalactite was one of my favorite areas designing the first model. However the increased size has allowed me to have details not possible before. Each section is like designing its own separate model. My way of working was to think of each "pod" as a separate, detailed smaller ship – which actually fits with the lore of these pods being interchangeable. I also like the haphazard cover plates encapsulating the pods. Some of the plating seems almost to float in space. This angle also reveals some of the several, otherwise hidden, viewports of the ship. Each part of the ship is designed as if it were a separate micro model. Just like trying to make the scale Falcon as precise as possible (Thanks Tim) each section is built for optimal detail. For comparison is a picture of the studio model in the same area below: Here the dirty, used look of the model along with the subtle splashes of color is evident. These are features I have tried to recreate in the design of the model. Before we move on here is a shot of the top of the front. The short-range communications array is in focus. I have always been curious as to what the purpose of the grilled area is? The Middle The area where the front section meets the neck is where we find the medical bay. Here is the iconic window where Leia and Luke watch the Falcon depart with Chewie and Lando in the search for Han. Getting the shape of the window correct was a challenge when using plates and tiles for the plating. I did a test using a “brick wall” approach, which made it easier to get the desired shape of the window, but forewent the nice texturing afforded by the lines between the tiles of different shapes and sizes. Just now writing this post I got an idea. Looking at the window in the picture above I decided I could clean it up a bit, but also set in the proper picture of Luke, Leia and the droids (the picture was found in the aforementioned post). This only goes to show that no Lego model is ever truly done :) (too bad I delivered back the good camera so this picture is taken with my phone ><). And now I got an idea for my next moc – I will build this medical-bay-window-scene in minifig scale, put in the minifigs, take a picture and place it in this window frame – it is the Lego way! :D The Falcon. In scale with the Medical Frigate, docked as seen in ESB. The excellent design is thanks to Tim Goddard. I have updated it a bit with a new cockpit section and a few other modifications. The Falcon is attached to the “Docking Neck” which is detailed below. The docking neck up close. Loads of piping, but also a few slopes thrown in to approximate the not quite round, but not quite square, shape of the studio model. The detailing continues all the way around – even under the neck. This was the only place I did not detail on the old model, but this time around it has gotten the proper treatment. Connecting front and back. Getting the Falcon to hang on properly and NOT fall down was "fun". Looking at the film shot it is actually docked in the exhaust vent right under the turret (which also makes little sense). Trying to getting it to hang in that area meant that it was too off the center of gravity and I would need a seperate stand for the Falcon. Or I could revert to the smaller, lighter version used in the old version. I am still considering a solution :) The Back The back section’s main features are the engines, the static discharge vanes and the Deflector Control tower. However, there are also plenty of more subtle features to pique the imagination. This angle shows off the details of the Deflector Control tower nicely, but it also reveals some detailing not seen from the angles shown on film. I have found no description on what the pipes are meant to be, but they look interesting and are part of the section of the model labeled Engineering. There is also a row of holes in the model here, which I suspect should be windows. However, on the studio model they are not covered with the kind of film the other windows are. Maybe it is an omission or maybe the holes serves a different purpose – in any case I have recreated them here. The static discharge vanes are also prominent in this picture. They must serve their purpose in atmosphere or perhaps more gaseous parts of space – perhaps inside a nebula eh? :P Here is the opposite side of the same area. Although the model is overall symmetrical, the different detailing techniques of the modelers working on different parts of the model is evident when looking at the studio model. I have tried to interpret the different styles using bricks :) Now to the juicy stuff – the engines. The engine section of the studio model sports an obscene amount of detail. Dozens and dozens of plates, placed in an intricate system. Looking at this section on the studio model from different angles continuously reveal new details. Just as you thought you had the look nailed, a new picture reveals plates jutting further out than expected or until then hidden nuances. This is why another picture of the exact same area, but from a slightly different angle, is needed. Looking at the engines from different perspectives also revealed that they are placed at slightly different “depths”. In general I had to revisit this area quite a few times because nothing lines up as neatly as initially expected. Even though it can look like it, the sides of the engine section does not slope at exactly 45 degrees – which makes recreating it that much more troublesome. Another perspective. The deflector control tower has a weird air intake looking thing at the top. The “Dark Side” The starboard side of the ship is not really shown up close in either ESB or RotJ. The main reason for this is that this is the side where the model was mounted to a large steel frame for shooting. The side sports a lot of unique detailing, as also seen on the back section. When looking at the starboard side of the stalactite, several unique features stands out compared to the port side. I have tried to recreate all these features, but I have also improvised a bit of additional detailing because this side was somewhat barer. Looking at the green command module there were no windows on this side and some weird plating. This lead me to believe that at some point the modelers had to prioritize their time to get the model done - and stuff that would not be seen in the movie suddenly became less important to flesh out. Thus I have taken a few liberties with this side. I recreated all the unique features, but I also added detail. For example the starboard windows to the command module – only having windows on one side struck me as weird. Since the other side of the same module had piping and cylinders I added a bit of those here as well – without mirroring anything, because no mirroring is to be found anywhere else on the model. I did more or less the same with the tan module adding some detail to compliment the opposite side. However, I have tried to make my own detailing subtle enough as to not take focus from the unique features found here. All in all, this side is a bit more of a playground compared to the rest of the model where every area is exquisitely detailed. The more modest texturing here begs for continued tinkering :) Heading into Hyperspace! The Nebulon B - ready to jump to lightspeed! Overview On the shelf. The model is done for now, but a model is always a work in progress. I am always tweaking here and there. I have already made a few modifications since these pictures were taken – I will keep you updated here :) I got a lot of builders asking to send them LDD of my old model. Well, I have good news. I will be making (not me personally) instructions for this if anyone is interested. When they are done the will be available alongside the LDD, Excel Sheet with the bricks needed and an XLM wanted list to upload to Bricklink :) And yes, it is swooshable! Please comment! Go here for updates to the design and instructions: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=131170 UPDATE:
  14. Hello everyone! After receiving so many enquiries seeking instructions for my Zeta-class cargo shuttle, I am pleased to announce the release of a professional 768 page instruction manual for purchase. The final piece count is 4418, just surpassing 75159 Death Star. The completed model measures 70 x 56 x 38cm (wings upright). I have put together a package that includes the 768 page pdf instruction manual, parts list and LDD file. All of it is available for 25 British pounds (£25). If you would like to purchase the plans, please either PM me or contact me at I will have a public parts list uploaded to rebrickable very soon (for simplicity, red coloured pieces can be anything you like, they are not visible from the exterior). I’m sure everyone appreciates the long hours that went into designing both the physical model and step-by-step build. I had a lot of fun putting this one together and hope others will too! The Rebrickable parts list is now live here. Here is the original thread from February 2017 and the Flickr album. I have revised the attachment between the wings and main body, but not been brave enough to motorise it - I'll leave that to someone else to try! Below are a few excerpts from the manual: Please feel free to use this thread to discuss anything about the model design, building steps, part substitutions, etc.
  15. BW-2001 RTT-Initiative (Rebel Troop Transport UCS) I was born in 1977, the year Star Wars A New hope was released. I remember watching Return of the Jedi in the movie theater to this day as well as the people who accompanied me to see it; my father and my brother. I was hooked. Anything to do with Star Wars I loved. As a I grew older and started a family, I found myself sharing Star Wars with my own kids which led me down the path of building LEGO space ships. I purchased several books and discovered a subculture dedicated to pop culture LEGO MOCS. I was instantly hooked. The first MOC I ever built was by MIRKO from @StarBricks. I love his work. I've said to him and others, he set the bar really high for when I would one day create my own MOC. Over the past several months, I've been working on a build from Star Wars The Force Awakens. It's somewhat of an iconic scene with the ship in the background - and it didn't get much screen time as it brought Han Solo and Leia back together. LEGO released a version of this ship (set 75140) which didn't do the ship justice in my opinion (other than coming with some really awesome min-figs). I researched cross sections books / visited fandom and star wars wiki sites and consulted original concept artwork for the details of this build while also adding my own creative touch. After 3 failed attempts, I hit my stride and started to become really happy re-creating a piece of movie screen history. Build Details * Total Parts: 4342 Total Lots: 410 28.2" Wide, 15.6" Length, 6.8" Height Weight: 147.877 ounces. (9.3Lbs) Instruction Progress: 10% completed * As this is the alpha version of this build, part and lot counts will change. Pieces have been ordered to do test builds and stability checks. The interior POD and Ion cannon sections are still in progress. Main transport ship hull is 95% complete. Exterior ship build is 90% complete. I welcome any feedback (both positive and critical). Note these are Alpha renders and may have some subtle difference from the final version. If you are interested in instructions, please send me a message Once my site goes live, I can provide further information on availability and release of instructions. All top panels are easily removable. I included a great deal of detail and I wanted the compartments to be easily viewable. Additional Interior details. In true rebel fashion, the main transport hull can be excluded entirely and connected to the ion cannon.
  16. Hello there! Some might remember me as the one who always was confident that we would eventually get a new UCS Millennium Falcon back in the days when there was speculation galore. I always wanted one, but I was not willing to pay 800 Euros for a set, even one as cool as the MF. Before christmas last year, however, I managed to get one for slightly over 600 Euros and finally pulled the trigger. Even before I received the enormous box I decided to not build the model according to the instructions from start to finish, but to built the majority of the outer shell and the details myself. First of all, I wanted to get cleaner lines and surfaces, especially on the circular hull plating and the mandibles, as well as creating movie-accurate detail. As for the detail, I aimed to build the clips to which the piping is attached into the plane of plates, so that all the pipes are resting flush on the hull plating. I also didn't want to bend soft or rigid hoses to create piping detail. As a general guideline, I always opt to achieve a 'clean', pleasing-looking finish, and I'm willing to approximate details in order to achieve that rather than trying to build them as closely to the reference material as possible, often ending up with something that looks super-accurate but clunky in Lego form. That's simply a matter of building style, not of 'right' or 'wrong'. Also, I avoid results that look cool but are wobbly. I start this thread because the model is finished for now, with all major problems on the outer shell solved and all outer details built and attached. As for the circular plating, I went with a 'pizza-slices'-approach, since that gave me clean edges and the right directions of the studs to achieve the piping like I described above and also get the right shapes and alignments for various coloured parts of the hull. I also moved the maintenance acces ports in the mandibles two studs to the front to create space for the circular plating and more accurate proportions in that whole area. In the coming months, I will most propably improve some things here and there, as is usually the case with such a huge model, and maybe tackle incorporating a full interior. We'll se about that. As for now, here are the first two photos of the heavily modified build, and I'll post more in the coming days. I hope you like it - in any case, tell me what you think!
  17. From the designer of fantastic UCS-scaled MOCs comes a Hammerhead Corvette. The MOC contains 3,606 pieces in total, and measures 35 inches long, 13 inches wide, and 14 inches tall. Take down Imperial Star Destroyers with a UCS-scaled Hammerhead Corvette from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Despite the fact that the scale of this model is unknown, the model itself does not disappoint in terms of both accuracy and detail. There is an instructions bundle available for this MOC which includes a 480 page pdf instruction manual, a parts list, and LDD files. All we ask is an exchange of 35 U.S Dollars ($35) for the entire bundle. For more details about purchasing the bundle, please either PM me or contact me at via email. As for sticker, The manual includes a plate to where the sticker will go, but until more information is learned about the Hammerhead, a sticker will not officially be released. Here are some images from the manual that show the design and completed model: Parts list: Please use this topic to discuss anything about the MOC including the building process, questions, part substitutions, etc.
  18. Was anyone else slightly disappointed with the UCS A-wing? Don't get me wrong it is a beautiful and striking looking model but (in my opinion) flawed with a few issues. In particular the loose/wobbly engines, large stickers and flimsy looking tail fins. I modified mine to fix these issues and I've published free instructions of these mods on Rebrickable: Lenz/ucs-a-wing-starfighter-modifications/?inventory=1#comments To see more photos of this model see my Flickr page: What do you think?

    [WIP] UCS TIE Variants (All of Them)

    I've been away for a little while (again), but I've been busily working on some designs for my UCS TIE project. First up is a model I had been avoiding for a long while, the iconic standard TIE Fighter. Overall I really like this design, but the cockpit ball could use some work. It's decidedly more curved than any other TIE I've done, but is a bit too cylindrical, as opposed to spherical like it should be. I really don't like the sloped method used by TLG in the official TIE Interceptor and TIE Advanced, and this curved method allows for a SNOTed pylon, which I really like a lot. Once the venerable TIE Fighter was done, it opened up a lot of variations on the theme. Like the TIE Experimental M1. And the TIE Experimental M2. And once I had started doing TIE Experimentals, I just had to do all of them. TIE Experimental M3 TIE Experimental M4 TIE Experimental M5 And then I realized that the M3 was the perfect starting point for the Emporer's Royal Guard Interceptor Next came one of my favorite TIE variants, the Lancet Aerial Bombardment. Needing a break from the starfighters, I next moved on to the TIE AP-1, also known as the TIE Mauler. And that led into the Century Tank, or TIE Crawler. I did a few of the odd-ball shaped TIEs next, the TIE Lambda and the TIE Raptor. At this point I returned to the standard TIE variants, starting with the TIE Fire Control. Followed by the TIE Reconnaissance, and the TIE Ground Targeting. Next up is one of the more unique shaped TIEs, the TIE Scout. Then for something completely different, the TIE Neutralizer. It was finally time to tackle the Bomber variants, starting with the TIE Electronic Warfare. Then came the TIE Heavy Bomber the TIE Interdictor the TIE Hammer and finally the TIE Lander The Lander needed two renders, just to shhow off the landing skids I had designed. The TIE Shadow Squadron was next on my radar. After that came the TIE Sentinel Then I finished up the Standard TIE variants with the TIE Vanguard and 'completed' the TIE project with the Nsiss Chiss-Class Clawcraft. I say 'completed' because, even though I've created a model for every variant I intend to, there is always room to improve them. So I looked at the older models I had made, and realized that they didn't age well next to the new methods I was using now. So I set about re-designing them. First was the TIE Bomber the TIE Boarding Craft and the TIE Shuttle. The TIE Predator got a cockpit update, but I couldn't find a combination of slopes that I liked for the wings, so the old design has to do. The trio of the TIE Clutch TIE Phantom and TIE Shadow received updates, though the main hulls remained from the old versions. The last five all received complete make-overs, starting with the TIE Hunter. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a mechanism to make the wings open and close. Then came the TIE Avenger TIE Aggressor TIE Oppressor and last but not least, the TIE Torpedo Bomber The only two original models that have not gotten a facelift are the Scimitar Bomber and the TIE Droid The Droid's wing angle makes it very difficult to brick-build the wings while keeping the pylons from looking like crap warmed over. The Scimitar's complex wing design doesn't lend itself readily to a brick-built design, and the hull I am extremely happy with. None of these new designs have been built yet. I believe I have ordered all of the parts for my interpretation of the TIE Defender. Stay tuned, as soon as the parts arrive I will begin construction. If you have questions or comments, or want different views from some of the models, feel free to ask.

    [WIP] [UCS] MC75 "Profundity"

    Hallo! Various fantastic Star Destroyer MOCs have been posted but Mon Calamari ships are very rare to find. I guess the organic shape is one of the reasons. Creating curved designs like this in Lego is on another level. Currently raskolnikov building a huge MC cruiser which finally pushed me forward to put on my own hands on a MC cruiser. A UCS „Profundity“ - Admiral Raddus´ MC75 cruiser will be my next project. As reference for the scale I picked the 10030 ISD. The result should be a counterpart with 72 cm in lenght. Despite the small dimensions I chose it really is a challenging ship due to its sleek, curved design. Fortunately it has a big armorbelt which is a bit easier area to realise and in my opinion looks a bit cooler with the “military” elements Link to album Here is my first attempt with curved slopes. Simple, with a nice result. And the docking bay will be easy to include. The surface is sleek but unfortunately the nose is to chubby. The front isn’t convincing me anymore. Its closer to an BATTLESTAR (Galactica e.g.) than a MC cruiser. I will change this for sure. Another big thing will be including "pods" on the the hull. Well, thats all so far folks. Greetings Kommander
  21. From the designer of the most famous AT-AT MOC comes a UCS Tie Defender. The MOC contains 1,676 pieces in total. Despite being a relatively simple design consisting of a base with 3 identical wings, the model itself does not disappoint in terms of both accuracy and detail. There is an instructions bundle available for this MOC which includes a 162 page pdf instruction manual, a parts list, and LDD files. All we ask is an exchange of 20 U.S Dollars ($20) for the entire bundle. For more details about purchasing the bundle, please either PM me or contact me at via email. For the sticker, I recommend printing it at 122mm width by 61mm height after downloading the original file in the bundle. Here are some images from the manual that show the design and completed model: The Rebrickable listing will be approved soon for an easy to access parts list. Please use this topic to discuss anything about the MOC including the building process, questions, part substitutions, etc.
  22. After many months of hard work here finally my last MOC has finished. MOC name: TS-PROJECT - SB00201 TIE-Silencer - Personal ship of Kylo Ren - Number of pieces: 3176 - Minifigures: 2 - Length: 74 cm - Width: 35 cm - Height: 17 cm Main features: - solid and separable structure for transport - hatch opening (90 °) - fully accessible cockpit with 90 ° screen opening - side panels that can be opened with access to the engines - preparation for lighting system (engines and interior) I attach a flickr link because I can not upload photos here... and I do not know why! :-(
  23. I present to you the backbone of the Rebel Alliance – the GR-75 Rebel Transport: After having tweaked and tweaked my last MOC (Medical Frigate) and built a fleet of fighters and smaller ships for it, I wanted to build something bigger - but in the same scale. I chose the beautiful, organic looking 90-meters long, Rebel Transport. The Medical Frigate can be seen here: http://www.eurobrick...pic=129607&st=0 http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=131170 The Transport is the workhorse of the Rebel alliance, transporting equipment from base to base. The ship can house dozens of odd sized containers kept in place by strong magnetic locks. The Transport, like so many other Rebel ships, have a very organic and beat up look – getting this look right was the biggest challenge when designing the moc. The scale of the model is 1: 250 meaning it is built at 2 meters per stud. Thus the Transport is 45 studs long. Building the most detailed 45 stud version of the ship was my main goal. Based on pictures of the movie model I calculated the width and curvature of the ship – I fired up LDD and began building. What I ended up with was an 850+ brick model made up of 150+ brick types: The Transport takes flight! Front view. In this picture the curvature of the ship is very pronounced. To my luck the range of curved bricks fit perfectly with curvature of the ship. When placed along a central spine they further underline the lines the Transport has across the hull. Don’t mind the small hole in the front – one of the hinges is slightly too bent. Top view. I have mostly used white 1 x 4 curved slopes to get the proper shape. However, to get the dirty, rugged look of the ship, I have mixed in a number of different colors and other curved slopes. The Cargo. The GR-75 can carry a LOT of containers. Creating this part of the ship was kind of a chore but also very fun. At this scale I had just enough resolution to attempt recreating every single cargo container and detail from the studio model. I found a picture of the model showing the bottom up and began mapping every container pipe and greeble I could. I recreated it all with bricks of matching colors, pipes, taps and odd shaped pieces. The end result matches the haphazard stacking of the studio model – I’m glad I put the magnetic locks in place… :) Containers from the back. As with the Medical Frigate, one of the challenges was creating a sturdy non-interfering stand. With this ship one of the stands is placed in the middle of the containers. However I did not want to sacrifice even a single compartment so I found a workaround using transparent wall pieces. The slim piece is fitted snugly in between a number of containers and is just connected via two studs – but it seems to hold :) Container close up. They are all there :) Starboard profile view. This angle reveals the slight sloping of the hull towards the rear end of the ship. The curving effect was achieved by a number of plate hinges and four sections with slightly different angles. Port profile view. The profile views show the gap between the top and bottom hull plates. This gap has a jagged effect on the studio model – conveyed here by 1 x 1 and 1 x 2 plates. Side detail. Yes, there is actually detailing in the narrow gap between the hull plates. Again, the greebling is based on looking at the studio model – and on what was possible in such a small area :) Engine view. As always, one of my favorite parts of a ship. Getting all the engines to fit in there was a bit of a challenge. Rear view. As the Transport flies out of focus the uneven surface is again evident. The Transport has a very small command/deflector module - the little thing on top of the spine. To be in scale this module should actually be about half a stud smaller – even smaller than a B-wing cockpit section. However, the 2,5 stud test I did, did not look very good :) Lastly a scale comparison with the Medical Frigate – and the rest of the rebel fleet :) Thanks to all the supporters of the Medical Frigate project, you have helped make this model possible! Everyone can get the LDD for the Rebel Transport here: https://www.dropbox..../GR-75.lxf?dl=0 Enjoy and please comment!
  24. Nebulon-B Medical Frigate by Dranac feat. Onecase (photo by Onecase) Hello every one. A few years ago, I revealed my UCS Nebulon-B frigate. It is now time to update this post, with new photos... new version and new instructions. It is now the the sixth version (v6) and I think it will be the very last. Because, Onecase (one of the best star wars mocer), added some welcome details, I decided to add some of these improvements to my Nebulon-B (with his kind authorization), I also rebuilt some parts of the frigate, for better resistance, optimization and better rendering. Because I'm not a very good photographer, I asked him if I could add to my photos some of his. He accepted and I thank him. I also decided to fully remake the instructions (PDF). It is a very nice and clear version, accessible to everyone. The instructions + part list are still on sale. Here is the part list (Red and lime colors can be replaced by anyelse) This new version is made of 4585 parts (the v5 was made of 4200 pieces), but keep the same proportions : 85 cm long This moc is still as strong as before (you can move it with one hand without any risk), as stable as before and still 100 % modular (you can disassemble it easily to show it in any convention ! ^_^) Enjoy !
