Veynom posted a topic in LEGO Star WarsAnd here comes my latest MOC: the hybrid crossing between a STar Wars Y-Wing and a Star Trek USS Enterprise. Hybrid Bomber Wing by Veynom, on Flickr I based my model out of the Lego 75172 Y-Wing set and then started really heavily modifying everything. A new prototype is ready by Veynom, on Flickr The resulting model is very sturdy, fully swosshable, and not-so-ugly-kind-of, at least if you like flying junk ships. Preparing the new Wing bomber by Veynom, on Flickr Loading the bombs by Veynom, on Flickr As play features, I kept the bombing compartment, the rotating gun, the astromech slot, and the opening cockpit. The colors have moved from yellow to black, LBG, DBG, and white. A darker scheme in the end. Good job, Admiral! by Veynom, on Flickr It looks like the rebel admirals are relatively satisfied with the resulting hybrid bomber. I have been told it looks a bit like the Firefly Serenity, which I did not know before. I'm still looking for a valid name for that ship. One of the proposals on the table would be a Goose-Wing as it has a duck look. Comments welcome.
Following the creation of the first version of the USS Enterprise I have modified the MOC some time later (also some time ago): As you can see I have changed the overall structure to reduce the mechanical strain on the different parts. Of course, the drives are now less spectacular... The crew is happy nevertheless. .. that is how the ship is structured. It is possible to separate the ship in two parts. C&C welcome! Live long and prosper!
Hello Space-Travellers! The MOC I will present today was built some time back together with my children, who wanted to have a model of the USS Enterprise to play with: So we decided to re-use an old Millenium Falcon to build the main part of the space ship: We managed to get the basic shape alright, but in terms of stability the ship was a nightmare... The weight of the main part was a challenge. The ship was supposed to be able to stand on the ground without tipping over. (Don't worry, I'll show the crew in a later post) As counterbalance the back of the ship also had to become heavy. I.e. I had to use as many bricks as possible to add weight. (And this is why it does not look so good...) The front part of the ship could be separated from the back as you can see by means of technic bricks. That was reasonably stable. A lot of SNOT technique was used for the engine room. There was also room for a small shuttle: So, for a while, my kids were happy (and I had actually dreamt of a playable Enterprise since I was a kid myself). However, after a while I felt I had to redesign the ship because of the mechanical strain on several parts of the construction. (And I did not like the drives). This is why what I present to you is actually no more. Yet I thought it was worth while presenting (even if it has a kind of "this is not how to do it"-idea to it) as my 2000th post in this forum. Thanks for watching!
