    [MOC] UT-AT

    "The Unstable Terrain Artillery Transport (UT-AT), also known as the "Trident," was a military transport and assault vehicle that served the Grand Army of the Rpublic during the Clone Wars when the use of walkers was unsuitable." Hi Guys, i´d like to show You my Moc Version of the UT-AT. A "blink and you miss it" vehicle of Star Wars Episode 3. I always liked the look of it and finally tried to translate it into Lego. My biggest difficulty was to angle and line up the Panels to be mostly gap-free. It is a bit on the fragile side, but if handled with a bit of care it is very much playable and posable.

    New Clone Wars Comic [WIP]

    Started working on this a while back trying to find a style I like. I'm going for a hand-drawn style that I don't actually have to draw :) Does this look too much like what it is (image processed renders)? Feedback most welcome!
  3. My first ever true Minifig-scale ship is finally here, and what better model to start with than the sleek BTL-B Y-Wing from The Clone Wars series. Being 23 meters long in universe, this accurately Minifig-scaled MOC is quite a unit: 57 cm long, 1,6 kg, 2,954 pieces. It can accommodate two clone pilots - one in the cockpit, the other in the turret. The model is available in three versions: classic (yellow), Rex's (blue), and red. With a spaceship of this kind, the main challenge is to achieve a level of smoothness and fluidity that gets as close to the original as possible. Using the Battlefront II model as a reference, my goal here was to closely match all key features of the ship: the subtle downwards angle on each side of the body, the curvy and tapered front section, the continuous yellow stripes that run across the entire fuselage, the intricate middle-section... and for such a smooth ship, going full SNOT (from top to bottom!) goes without saying. The T-shaped body of Y-Wings usually allow for simplistic structures, but in this case, figuring out the internals was one of the truly head-scratching parts of the build, since I had to properly incorporate angled fuselage assemblies and make a proper interior for Minifigs. Even so, the model is very swhooshable and can be grabbed from the underside, from the rear or even from both wings. Each color variant is accompanied by its specific set of instructions and parts list, giving you the freedom to build the one you prefer. The ship has two display modes, "in-flight" with its fully removable stand, and "landed" with retractable and easy-to-connect landing gear. The swooshing can begin. ► Instructions for the BTL-B Y-Wing are available at BrickVault! More pictures on my Flickr page.
  4. "Commander Cody, prepare the gunships for ground assault!" Let's give the Midi-Scale treatment to another timeless ship: the LAAT Gunship or Republic Gunship from The Clone Wars. Being a fan of the sleek and flush Clone Wars era design, I thought this variant deserved more attention, especially in Midi-Scale. This Midi LAAT/i consists of 1,015 pieces, measures only 22cm (without guns), and is accurately Microfig-scaled. It features a fully SNOT look, openable front doors, and a removable stand that can be tilted to taste. Design-wise, this ship was full of challenges, with lots of subtle angles and curved surfaces everywhere. Shaping the front section wasn't an easy task at this scale, as well as adding that crucial touch of lime green without any stickers. All of this resulted in a pretty intricate structure, especially for the front section. The angled rear section of the body features other details such as missile belts, exhaust slats and tail cannon. The underside of the ship is also fully SNOT-built. Initially, all four doors could be opened, but I chose to remove the less useful rear door mechanism for a smoother, easier building process. ► Instructions for the LAAT are available at BrickVault!

  5. Hello all Just the one model this time. The Ahsoka collection has taken a bit of time due to the recent Bricklink issues............ The latest issue of the LEGO Star Wars Magazine supposedly has a mini model of Yoda’s Jedi Starfighter: Yes, really, that is supposed to be Yoda’s Jedi Starfighter. Even if you use your imagination (like you are supposed to do with LEGO) and give the designer the benefit of the doubt, er no! . Basically it’s a re-coloured TIE Striker. As a MINI builder I know the limitations of these small models but really! This is just lazy and no-one would know what it was if it didn’t have it printed on the bag. The cockpit section is way too tiny compared to the wings for starters and there should be wings/s-foils top and bottom. I have had this one on my to do list for a long while but I have not got round to it but this just made me want to do a proper job on this one when my son brought this home and told me what it was! Rant over, now to the model! 😊 The cockpit is 3 studs wide not 2, and I have used the 3x3 cone as the back of the cockpit. This is all held together with a bar through a 1x1 brick with studs on 2 sides. The wings are angled forward using those rounded 1x2 plates so you can turn the wedges. I also really like how the 2x2 wedges at the back of the wings sit snuggly against the cone so there is no gap. The foils may be slightly too big but are much better than having none and overall the model’s proportions are almost spot on to the source material. Colour wise I have used green not dark green as the cone piece is not available in dark. There are probably too many pieces for a magazine gift model but this shows what can be done. Let me know what you think. Jon Full Bricksafe gallery can be found here with loads of other models: https://bricksafe.com/pages/obijon

  7. Hello there, I'm lucky enough to have a secondary flat at the seaside with a small stock of bricks. As I spent most of my summer holidays there this year, I used my time to build small MOCs, simple stuff, with no particular ambition. The exercice is often about how to use a particular part (NPU), how to make something with colors I use less, and still build mainly Star Wars creations with only what I have at hands (Creator, Friends, City bricks). Here are the various resulting MOCs: My Own Creations - Summer 2023 by Veynom, on Flickr I started with a small vignet, kind of a hangar where I used some clones from the 212th. 212th in action by Veynom, on Flickr If the base is 2-brick high, it is because the dark red ground part is mostly made from slopes (originally from a house roof). 212th in action by Veynom, on Flickr My daughter asked me then to build a kind of weapon shop for smugglers. I built this small bounty hunter outpost, ready to welcome scums and other vilains. I used almost all tan parts I had. Random outpost by Veynom, on Flickr Being close to the beach allowed me to make some cool pictures... Who just said "Tatooine"? Random outpost by Veynom, on Flickr Random outpost by Veynom, on Flickr Lack of tan parts forced me to be creative in many places. Random outpost by Veynom, on Flickr After the outpost, I built more speeders. Starting with this KH-26 Kaddyr, a kind of mini Opel Blitz, Star Wars way. KH-26 Kaddyr by Veynom, on Flickr It looks really rusty and cobbled together from whatever junk parts. Even its driver is a fishbag minifig. KH-26 Kaddyr by Veynom, on Flickr KH-26 Kaddyr by Veynom, on Flickr KH-26 Kaddyr by Veynom, on Flickr Then there was the KH-27 Pekz, to test color matching between lime and some custom clones purchased by my son. Lime does not work. KH-27 Pekz by Veynom, on Flickr But patrolling on the sea shore is a real pleasure. KH-27 Pekz by Veynom, on Flickr I must confess I would love driving a speeder on the sea side like that ... KH-27 Pekz by Veynom, on Flickr Free instructions for the Pekz are available on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-156286/Veynom/kh-27-pekz-speederbike/#details Another speeder variant came next with the KH-28 Rhak-Skuri KH-28 Rhak-Skuri by Veynom, on Flickr I used blue and white for the colors and the engine exhaust is made from a Friend trophy cup! KH-28 Rhak-Skuri by Veynom, on Flickr KH-28 Rhak-Skuri by Veynom, on Flickr Then, with my son, we started a small contest. The goal was to create a small vignette to display his new custom clones. He started with this nice gate for a clone trooper from the 442nd Siege Battalion: Clone Wars - 442nd Siege Battalion by Veynom, on Flickr I really liked his gate. I retaliated with a stairs from Coruscant streets and Commander Fox: Clone Commander CC-1010 "Fox" by Veynom, on Flickr But finally I settled the score for all by merging both creations into a single one. His gate, my stairs. And the 442nd was back. Clone Wars - 442nd Siege Battalion by Veynom, on Flickr I found some discounted 501st battle packs. Figs are nice (ok compared to the custom ones, they are average) but the proposed canon is ... under average. I decided to use 2 of these sets to make 1 better canon. Mobile artillery platform by Veynom, on Flickr And more pictures at the sea side ... Mobile artillery platform by Veynom, on Flickr This is the new Atlantic Wall: Mobile artillery platform by Veynom, on Flickr Mobile artillery platform by Veynom, on Flickr Mobile artillery platform by Veynom, on Flickr I also made free instructions for that one on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-155900/Veynom/mobile-artillery-platform-from-2x-set-75345/#details Most of these MOCs are already back to the bulk but the purpose is to build, not to keep. And when I build, it means I'm feeling good so I can conclude holidays were nice. Hope you enjoyed these, feel free to mention your preferred creations in the comments.

    [MOD] 75333 DELTA-7 AETHERSPRITE

    things changed: -lowered cockpit down roughly 1 brick, changed build around cockpit region to slope into wings, taper into body, round out the rear to more accurately reflect the shape of the model in canon -filled in gaps with 1 tile width across whole body; requires some gaps in wing construction -replaced guns for accuracy; subject to further change to reduce conspicuousness -cut up stickers to apply across model -cut cockpit -nexo tile at front to hammer in the point :) working on instructions if anyone's interested. if ur curious on scale it works like this
  9. "This is where the fun begins!" My latest ship from the Prequel Trilogy has arrived, and it surely was a lot of fun to make: here's Obi Wan's Eta-2 Actis Interceptor from Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and The Clone Wars. This small unit consists of 281 pieces (stand included), and has one major feature: true Minifig scale! There's a handful of beautiful MOCs of this ship out there already, but most of them are based on the huge cockpit piece from the playsets, so they're drastically oversized. So here I am with a, dare I say, more accurately scaled version. It does come with a drawback, you guessed it: you can't put a fig inside. A bit ironic I know, but I chose to go for a brick-built cockpit in order to get as close to the original design as I could, prioritizing accuracy over playability, as usual. The wings were pretty challenging given the ridiculously small scale, and my goal was to have them as thin as possible without compromising the SNOT look. I'm quite happy with the result and I think this makes a nice little display piece. It's also very swooshable despite the intricate wing design. I'm usually not a fan of stickers, but I thought this one deserved some sweet markings. I used the sticker sheet from the playset - it is included in the parts list. The color scheme can be changed to red with only a few part swaps (see last page in the instructions). ► Instructions for the Eta-2 Actis Interceptor are available at Rebrickable. More pictures on my Flickr page.
  10. 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. More pictures on my Flickr page.

  12. "Wrecker, easy with my ship. "Your ship?" My Midi-Scale collection expands again with this nanofig-scaled Havoc Marauder from the Bad Batch series. Despite the small size, I once again went for a full SNOT look and paid close attention to proportions of the original shuttle. The build comes with a discrete, transparent stand to be displayed in flight mode. ► Instructions for the Havoc Marauder are available at Rebrickable or via email at flyinspace.mocs@gmail.com More pictures on my Flickr page.
  13. This is a small display model of the Republic Frigate, also commonly known as the Republic Consular-class Cruiser. This was seen at the beginning of The Phantom Menace (the red version) and many times during the clone wars. And there was a another dark red variant at Scipio as seen in season 6 of the Clone Wars show. I would consider this to be a midi-scale model. It comes with a simple stand that is easy to take on/off. The model itself is pretty sturdy and the design is very straightforward. This isn't really a complicated build at all. I was just aiming to make a nice little display piece. republic frigate (small) by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr republic frigate (small) 2 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr This is the dark red Scipio variant republic frigate (small) by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr republic frigate (small) scipio_2 by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr And this is the version for The Phantom Menace. I made a dark red version and a regular red version. Personally I think the dark red looks better, but the official LEGO version from 2007 (I think) did use a lot of the regular red. republic frigate (small) phantom menace (dark red) by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr republic frigate (small) by Rendili Bricks, on Flickr I did also make instructions/parts list for this and if anyone was interested, here are the links: Clone Wars light gray/dark red (Scipio) versions: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-88820/RendiliBricks/republic-frigate/#details The Phantom Menace dark red/regular red verions: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-88833/RendiliBricks/republic-consular-class-cruiser-the-phantom-menace/#details What do you all think? I feel like the republic frigate is a pretty underrated ship.

    [MOC] Z-95 Headhunter (Clone Wars)

    This is my UCS-like version of the Z-95 Headhunter from the Clone Wars. It is 937 pieces + 125 pieces for the stand. The Z-95 is a pretty sleek starfighter and I wanted to give it that clean look that it has in the Clone Wars show. I think I did a decent job at that - there are not many studs showing and the starfighter overall looks pretty sleek. I did also add in landing gear. There are 3 - one in the front and two towards the back. They can retract when you no longer need them. There is also a little slot in the bottom of the starfighter for the stand to go. There isn't actually a connection; you just place the starfighter right on top of the stand.

  15. 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 :)
  16. 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.

  17. 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.
  18. So I've been working on this on and off for the past 7 years. I wanted to have the Eta-2's to go along with my Delta-7B's. Initially my design was heavily based on Gunner's, which I had seen on this forum. The size was very close to minifig scale, and it served as a good starting point. However I ended up unsatisfied with my result. Four years later after having worked on my Ghost, I took another stab at it and started to make a bit more headway. I focused more and more on correcting my shaping and overall design. By the end of last year I had finalized a design that I was pretty happy with, the only drawback being the lack of 29119 & 29120 in yellow. Thankfully they came out with the introduction of the 76897 Audi. Earlier this month I took another look at my design, and while I did still like it, I felt it could use some final tweaks. And by simply changing the mandibles I found a new love for the design of this ship. So much so that I went ahead and updated my version for Ahsoka, and did up all the other versions from the movies. So here we go; My design progress. Anakin's Eta-2 from the Clone Wars, with s-foils open and closed. Some additional views. The cockpit interior and under the s-foils (showing the hole through the wing). The usual size comparison to my Delta-7B. Ahsoka's Eta-2 from the Clone Wars, with s-foils open and closed. Some additional views. And now the designs seen in Revenge of the Sith. Anakin's Yellow Eta-2. With a comparison to the new 2020 75281 Anakin's Jedi Interceptor. Anakin's Green Eta-2. Obi Wan's Red Eta-2. And finally Obi Wan's Blue Eta-2. As a final note, all of these are buildable except for Anakin's green Eta-2 (There are several pieces unavailable in Dark Green and some in Dark Bluish Grey). I have Ahsoka's test built in mostly the correct colours, I've placed a Bricklink order to get the pieces I need to finish both hers and Anakin's CW Eta-2. Once I have them completed I'll take some photos and add them here. As always, enjoy.

    [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.
  20. Hey everyone, hope everyone has been doing well. I've been busy working away at expanding my minifig scale MOC collection (Still only digitally atm). And thought I'd bring you something that I haven't really seen around anywhere. A minifig scale Hyena-class Bomber. This one was pretty tricky, but I think it came together rather well in the end. The official LEGO Hyena bomber was alright, but left a lot to be desired. The overall shaping of the ship was kind of off and the walking mode looked nothing like the source material. My goal was to get mine as close as I could and keep it in line with my other minifig scale builds. This was a little harder than I had anticipated, and I had to make one sacrifice right off the bat. There was no way that I could get the legs to physically retract the way they do on the actual ship, even more so at this scale. So unfortunately there is a small bit of "parts-forming" required between modes, but I made it as little as possible. I was able to get the wing mounts to extend out of the main body to allow upper leg movement though. The other thing that always made the model look wrong was using the head build method established by LEGO. While the stickers used to make up the "face" look nice, the overall head shape is left extremely flat. It took a week or so of playing with parts, but I was finally able to come up with a brick-built head design I was happy with. While it may not be perfect, for the most part has the general shaping of the actual Hyena bomber. I then utilized variations of the technique to build the other head-like shapes on the ship, including the targeting head below. I've also included a couple photos with some of my other MOCs for size comparison. Prior to working on the Hyena bomber, I had built a minifig scale Vulture droid, but was unhappy with the stock LEGO style head. However after figuring out the head for the Hyena bomber it wasn't too hard to down-scale to get a suitable head for it too. So since they are fairly similar I'm including the pictures of it here as well. Both ships were designed to use The Clone Wars colour schemes, although it could be debated that they Hyena should be sand blue rather than DBG, but given that practically none of the pieces come in that colour, there wasn't much choice. There are scenes from the show where it does look more grey that blue anyways. As always, hope you enjoy! I'll be back soon with my minifig scale ATT and DDT.
  21. This time, I decided to try building something that I have only ever seen one other MOC of. The J-1 Semi-Autonomous Proton Cannon. This thing has a very unique shape, and some fiddly limbs. I did a fair bit of physical brick building to figure out how I could do the legs, I'm happy with what I came up with. The legs can support a reasonable amount of weight, but overall I think this thing would need a stand to help support it. Anyways, here is what I came up with. A side view. The 3mm tubing is a little funky, but given how tricky is is to bend them in Stud.io I think it is a decent approximation. A comparison to 7869, and to my Delta-7b And action shot for fun.
  22. *Your entry has earned 26 XP* Excerpt from Lt. CC-2833’s log [19 BBY]: I don’t remember much from before the mission to Belnar. It’s all a bit hazy to me. We used to report to General Kenobi, but just as the 212th was rerouted to Utapau, our squad was reassigned. We were now reporting to the young Cpt. Bannon, and were supposed to assist him on a covert mission to Belnar. So close to the most decisive battle, and a chance to get back at General Grievous. I wonder who we pissed off in order to get demoted like that. Anyways. Good soldiers follow orders! Continued... Cpt. Bannon had briefed us on our mission to capture three renegade Jedi. Rumor said that they had turned on their clones, and made a run for it. The whole thing didn't make much sense to me or my brothers, until we cornered the Jedi on a shipwreck platform, and received the holo transmission from the Supreme Chancellor himself. “Execute Order 66” And so we did. Or rather, Cpt. Bannon had already executed Jedi master Manari. We had captured the padawan, but the togruta Jedi had escaped. Cpt. Bannon: Search the area for the other jedi, and alert all security check-points. She cannot not leave this mudball! Leave the padawan to me! We searched the surrounding area, but she had vanished - she was now our number one target. /// This was kind of a no-brainer to me. I've wanted to redo one of the first real mocs I ever did, for awhile - so here I go. Check the old build, and a few more shots below. Let me know what you think of the new take - what works/what could be better?
  23. Hi everyone! After 15+ hours, it's finally finished! I'm quite happy with the end results however there are some small bits I'm not quite satisfied with yet. The angled wings were quite a challenge as well as the top but I think I managed to do those decently. Hope you all like it! Part count is 1002 Comments and criticism are welcome!
