    What I expect 75222 to be

    I think that the rumors saying 75222 will be a UCS CC are true. So I´ve made a list of what I think the set could contain. Minifigures: Lando (updated version from 10123) with medium sized black blaster Luke (updated version from 10123) with blue lightsaber Han (version from 75192) with small black blaster Han (in Carbonite) Leia (updated version from 10123) Chewbacca (new head-piece with studs on back for carrying C-3PO) with stud-shooter-crossbow C-3PO (version from 75192 with printed arms and side-printed legs) Lobot (new "hair-piece" with bald head and AJ^6 cyborg construct) Bespin Guard (2x (different faces) ) with small silver blaster Cloud Car Pilot (2x (different faces; new hat piece like this one but more flat and with intigrated "glasses") ) with small black blaster Ugnaughts (2x (different head-piece-printings) ) Darth Vader (version from 75159) with red lightsaber Boba Fett (version from 75060) with black blaster (like the version from 75060) Stormtrooper (2x) with medium sized black blaster Builds: Display Modell of the Cloud City (about 200€ of the Set-Price) Twin Pod Cloud Car (in minifig-size, with two cockpits and small storage room for blasters) (about 40€ of the Set-Price) Main Build with the following rooms (about 260€ of the Set-Price) : Rooms: Corridors (about 4x) (for connecting rooms) (designed all like this but all four a bit varying too) Carbon-Freezing Chamber (like 75137 but with complete "platform", crane-arm and also as a complete room with pipes and cables) bridge and rooms where Luke and Vader are fighting (can be conected with Carbon-Freezing Chamber) (action-features: destroying window, throwing things, cutting pillar) Torture Chamber (small room with torture machine) Dining Room (with a table and about 6 seats) Living Room (with sculpture in the middle and a couple of seats and small tables and ornamented wall) "Trash-Destruction-Room" (I mean the room where Chewbacca finds C-3PO) (big mess ) (with conveyor belt) Entrance Hall (designed like Corridors) with this blue thing Platform 327 (small part of the platform with bridge connected with Entrance Hall (like they did in 10123) )

    [MOC] Storm IV Twin Pod Cloud Car

    I'd like to share my version of the Twin Pod Cloud Car: Storm IV Twin Pod Cloud Car 01 by James Shields, on Flickr The Cloud City part of Empire Strikes Back has always been one of my favourite parts of the Star Wars saga, and I think the cloud car is one of the most under-rated vehicles (it doesn't even get a mention in DK's "Complete Vehicles" book). LEGO have only attempted it once at minifig scale, all the way back in 2002: I've always felt the LEGO version could be improved on, and that feeling has only grown as the selection of orange curved parts has grown over the years. A couple of years ago I started collecting parts for my own version. I made several attempts to build one, but always got frustrated and ended up putting the project on the back burner. "You will not deviate from your present course." by James Shields, on Flickr Back in June, I decided to give it another go, using some techniques I'd picked up since my last attempt, as well as some better reference material I'd found. This version came together relatively quickly. Cloud Car over Bespin by James Shields, on Flickr I'm still not 100% satisfied, but I'm reasonably happy with the basic shape, and it scales pretty well to the UCS Millennium Falcon, so I think it's a good size. I expect I will keep tinkering with the design, and hopefully will keep making improvements. I also made a little bit of Cloud City: Cloud City Landing Pad 01 by James Shields, on Flickr The landing pad actually rests on the table, but I thought it would be fun to make it look higher, and add some other Cloud City buildings in the background. Thanks to Rhys Knight, who helped with the custom cloud car pilots:

    Star Wars Cloud City 2017/18?

    The Cloud City playset from Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Backs…https://ideas.lego.com/projects/163944 I wanted to design a fun and playable set which would include the ionic scenes from the Empire Strikes Back film. The aim was to create a set that resembles the shape of the cloud city and offers a playable platform like the Death Star play set. I’m a keen Star Wars fan and as Cloud City hasn’t seen a new set since 2003 I thought I would have a go. I hope you enjoy and welcome your creative input into my project. Thanks for your vote…

    Cloud City Play set MOC

    I've been waiting for Lego to release a new Cloud City play set, but since it has not been forthcoming I decided to make my own. There have been a couple great MOCs over the last few years, notably some fine work by StoutFiles, darththeling, and Lobot. My objective was to make something that would believably pass for a model that Lego would produce, as opposed to a diorama like most of the MOC attempts I've seen. As such, the emphasis is on play features and accessability, with an aesthetic that captures the overall feel of Cloud City without necessarily being totally movie accurate (e.g., the front facade is basically taken directly from the original Lego Cloud City, since I actually started this process trying to recreate that set). I was aiming for something roughly half as large as the 10188 Death Star set, with the idea that the set would come in at roughly half the price. According to LDD this set has about 1500 pieces. That is fewer pieces than, for example, the Ewok Village set, although weight-wise this Cloud City is a bit heavier (roughly 5 pounds compared to 4.75). Here it is: The set has three main pieces: a landing platform, the body of the set, and a catwalk/dueling platform. These pieces separate: The top level of the main body includes a hallway, a waiting room, and the dining room. The challenge with the hallway was to capture the feel of the movie scenes while also allowing enough space for hands to move figs around (i.e., it was not possible to put a roof on the set). In addition, there is an elevator that connects the top floor to the bottom. If you take the stairs instead of the elevator you'll find the trash/ugnaught room. This room has a working conveyor belt, controlled with a knob on the other side of the wall: Below the trash room, on the bottom floor, is a prison cell, with a door that slides open: After going down the elevator, a doorway leads into the carbonite chamber/dueling room: This room features a platform within the carbonite chamber that goes up and down, a string/winch that drops though the cone above the chamber (controlled with a knob on the side), and a light brick behind the chamber. Opposite the chamber is the large window that blows out to lead to the catwalk/dueling platform. The window sits on a spring/shock absorber that is sprung by a lever on the side: On the opposite side is the landing platform. This is much smaller than the one in the official Lego set, but I think it does the job. I'm still waiting for Lego to put out a new Cloud City, but this should hold me over for the time being. I'd love any feedback or tips on how I might improve the model.
  6. So over at minifigpriceguide I saw this picture of a prototype Cloud City Boba Fett. According to the website owner, it belongs to a collector in France. Now, I can imagine that if the regular Cloud City Boba Fett sells for hundreds of dollars, then this prototype would be insanely expensive, and must be even rarer. I was simply curious as to whether or not anyone here knows more info about this figure or has more pics. It is certainly interesting how it differs from the regular Cloud City Fett.
  7. Lando: "Lord Vader, we only use this facility for carbon freezing. If you put him in there it might kill him." Darth Vader:" I do not want the Emperor’s prize damaged. We will test it on Captain Solo." Hi guys, finally I can present you the second part of my Cloud City MOC.It is one of the famous Scene on Cloud City: Han Solo get frozen in carbonite,because Vader want to test the facility.The bulding technic from the round plattform is from markus 1984,here a link to his MOC: https://www.flickr.c...157634782465354 Enough words,here is my MOC: For more pictures follow the link: https://www.flickr.c...157655753319244 Here a reference picture: KevFett2011

    [MOC] [LDD] I Am Your Father

    The Empire Strikes Back's Duel on Cloud City between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader is one of the most iconic and significant scene in the Star Wars saga and in film history as well. Also emotionally this is the most dramatic turning point or climax in the whole story. In that case this epic moment deserves a Lego set. Lego already released the 10123 Cloud City set in 2003 roughly with all the Bespin scenes. Now we're focusing on the lower levels throughout the chamber, where Vader revealed the truth to Luke. The project based on the original location that we see in the movie and also uses the behind the scene photos as reference for the sizes, shapes, colors as accurately as possible. What do you think about it? Is it really a must have scene? If you like the idea please support here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/139111 Also if you want this to become a real set share it with your friends! Thank you! Cheers!
  9. Official S@H Description: Help Han Solo escape his frozen prison! Han Solo has been taken to the Carbon-Freezing Chamber and is about to be frozen in a block of solid carbonite! Can he defeat Boba Fett and escape or will he be frozen for all eternity by the Ugnaught? Only you can decide. • Includes 3 minifigures: Han Solo, Boba Fett and an Ugnaught. • Features a control center, freeze bed with freeze function, staircase and an elevator. • Lift Boba Fett into position with the elevator so he can keep guard. • Pull the knob to engage the freeze function. • Includes Boba Fett’s blaster. • Also includes Boba Fett’s helmet • Recreate unforgettable scenes from Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. • Measures over 5” (13cm) high (with carbonite bed raised), 7” (18cm) wide and 5” (14cm) deep. Box size: 26cm x 19cm x 6cm Weight: Approx 363g Parts: 231 Price: £19.99 (UK) Year of release: 2016 Introduction Longer-term members of Eurobricks will probably be aware that I’m just ever so slightly obsessed by all things Cloud City, so when I heard the first rumours of a new Freezing-Chamber set I was rather excited by the prospect. Did it meet my high expectations? Well, read on and find out! I’ve said it before, but I really don’t understand TLG’s apparent disinterest for Cloud City, especially when you consider the huge array of sets that have been made since 1999. Several of which seem to have very little appeal to anyone (e.g. 7111, 8012, 7252, 6205 and 75024 to name just a few!) and yet whilst we’ve had multiple Droid carriers, AT-ATs, AT-STs, X-Wings, Y-Wings etc, if I recall correctly there’s only been three previous Cloud City-based sets: Firstly, we had 7119 (Twin-Pod Cloud Car) which although adorable is seriously out-dated, 10123 (Cloud City) which is looking similarly a little ‘tired’ these days if I’m being honest, and finally 9678 (Twin-Pod Cloud Car & Bespin) which was released in 2012. Considering that Cloud City takes up a decent percentage of the screen-time in The Empire Strikes Back (aka Episode V) that’s a pretty dismal show over a 15 year period in my opinion I’d always wanted a 10123, but I just couldn’t bring myself to spend the sort of money that a MISB version cost when I left my dark-ages a few years ago, and the cost has spiraled upwards ever-since. I kept thinking that a new version would be produced and, after 5 years of waiting, my dreams have been realised, well sort of, with the release of a brand new and shiny Cloud City-based set for 2016! I'd intended to buy this from Shop at Home as soon as it was available, but it seems to have been on a continual ‘back-order’ since the start of January, so I ended up picking it up from a local store. I usually wait for a decent sale before buying sets for my personal collection, but I was happy to pay the full RRP for it. The box Ok, I’ll admit that I’m a bit biased about this, but it’s a thing of beauty! They’ve captured the feel of the scene really well and, if it wasn’t for Kylo Ren lurking in the top-right corner, it would be just about perfect. The reverse is just as good, with a nice array of images showing specific details and play-features of the set. Top marks TLG designers, the box-art for SW sets keeps raising the bar The contents My initial impression was that it was worth the cost; it’s quite heavy for that price point at about 363g (especially compared to the new Escape Pod). The box is almost filled with two bags plus a set of instructions. The great news is that the set is DSS (Dreaded Sticker Sheet) free! Another TLG oddity is the lack of consistency in the back (numbering) styles; I’m sure that there’s a reason why each of the bags are different but it does seem a little strange! The set consists of 231 parts and there’s a nice array of LBG, DBG, Trans-Orange and Black. It also includes a Dark red 4x6 plate, and a bright Yellow Technic axle which I haven’t encountered before – an interesting addition! The instructions The build Firstly apologies for the rubbish photos. In keeping with my previous reviews, the weather in the UK is typically dismal at the moment and best described as ‘grey and overcast’! The instruction booklet is 68 pages and is broken into 75 steps. I’ve included photos at around 15 page intervals. Page 15 - The partially built Technic assembly to raise/lower/rotate the Carbonite block Page 30 - Technic assembly completed and Chamber platform partially built. Note the torture chamber(?) located on the bottom-right of the set which uses the 4 x 6 Dark red plate. Page 45 - Most of the platform built, part of the elevator in progress Page 58 - The end result. Your own, small but perfectly formed Carbon-Freezing Chamber! The minifigures This will probably be the most interesting part for most; according to Bricklink 3 of the minigures are new. Firstly we have everyone’s favourite bounty Hunter, Boba Fett, who is virtually identical to the version included in the £170 UCS Slave 1. Apart from a lack of arm-printing he looks identical (as shown below) so personally if I didn’t already own the UCS set I’d be more that happy with this as an alternative! Next we have an Ugnaught which is the first ever time that it’s been made in a LEGO form, and the designers have done a great job. I wasn’t too impressed when I saw the initial images, but he’s just about perfect. I would have liked to see him with a spanner (or possibly a white toolbag, but that probably just shows my age and fondness for the old Kenner minifigures) but you can’t have everything. Han (and carbonite) look very similar to the version in the UCS Slave 1 and Jabba’s Palace. The Unusual Suspects Reverse view - not the prettiest....! Comparison - New version (75137 left) and older UCS (75060 right) Summary Previous comments and reviews have highlighted the size, or lack of it. I agree that it isn’t massive, but personally I think that its great value. For £19.99 you get 3 minifigures (or 4 if you include the Carbonite!), a nice mix of 230 parts and a set that which feels solid and is a reasonable replica of the ESB scene. Functions wise, there’s a basic elevator to the right-side of it which is moved up and down via a small lever, and a Technic axle/assembly which enables you to either rotate the Carbonite block around, or move it below the level of the main platform. To be honest, the latter doesn’t work that amazingly, but it could be fun for little ones. In addition, there’s an odd 2x4 black plate which twists on a pivot and the box indicates that Han should be attached to it! I assume that it’s an attempt at replicating the torture room, but I could be wrong! Overall, it’s a great set and my scores are as follows: Minifigures: 8/10 – New Ugnaught (finally!) plus the chance to own a new Boba Fett at a reasonable cost. Parts: 8/10 – For this price point it includes a great selection of parts; lots of Greys, Black and Trans-Orange. The full parts list is available on Bricklink. Design: 8/10 – A great little set, which feels quite solid. The consol and pipes located on the side of the structure are nice additions. Playability: 7/10 - Not bad for a little playset and I’m sure that the target audience (7-12 year olds!) would have quite a lot of fun with it Value: 8/10 – Considering that the former wave of SW sets of a similar size (AAT & T-16 Skyhopper) were both £24.99, this seems very reasonable at £19.99 in the UK. That’s 78% if my maths is any good! C&Cs welcome; I hope that you enjoyed my review

    [MOC] Cloud City

    Cloud City is one of my favourite movie locations... it just has something charming. I was building something else when I stumbled across round corner bricks of 6x6 and 10x10 and somehow Cloud City just popped into my head. After a couple of hours the design was ready. Inside the structure there are 2 LEGO light bricks to emphasize the many windows. The build was photographed on a poorly lit orange background to give it a subtle orange sheen. Apart from the background nothing is digitally edited.
  11. Here is my last MOC for a TechLUG contest. I choose to reproduce a scene from the the Empire Strikes Back. Here are the pictures from the movie. It gave me the details I needed for my MOC. I looked in the picture to find some elements and I tried to reproduce them on my MOC, so you find : 1. incinerator door 2. abandonned droid 3. a half round window 4. a conveyor belt 5. a box with C3P0 parts 6. Chewbacca 7. One of the 3 hugly guys (didn't find their name...) 8. a demijohn 9. some boxes with dump... Here is what I did with that : The incinerator door is lighted by a light brick : Backside : How I made my half round window : All the parts : C&C are welcome !
  12. Hi guys, Finally I can present you my last part from my Cloud City project.It is the dinig room,in which Darth Vader waits for the rebels.Here are the pictures: Episode V-Cloud City Dining Room by KevFett2011, on Flickr Episode V-Cloud City Dining Room by KevFett2011, on Flickr I hope you like it!

  13. (WIP) I was escorting the civliains out of cloud city when Stormtroopers started to close in. "Come on!" I said. Then, one of the Imperials lobbed a thermal detonator our way... "Get down!" I shouted. Fortunately, I was able to avoid the explosion. But just barely. (Yes, I know it is kinda small. Comments and suggestions welcome)

    [MOC] first post! Bespin duel

    Hey, I've been MOCing scenes from the Star Wars movies (pretty much exclusively OT) but I've only just gotten round to posting! This is my latest - the infamous Bespin Duel. Checked loads of movie stills, but couldn't find a single view of the whole gantry, so I've taken a bit of artistic licience. The main reason it's taken so long to get round to is the lack of a Bespin Luke minifig - I've put him together from a rebel technician torso and Johnny Thunder (jungle) legs! https://flic.kr/p/wn2iaz https://flic.kr/p/wjfUPC https://flic.kr/p/w4XH5h https://flic.kr/p/vpy9y3 https://flic.kr/p/wkUu2W https://flic.kr/p/w4Xwvu https://flic.kr/p/wmzexk I couldn't resist getting Luke to throw himself off at the end! https://flic.kr/p/wn2m6V
  15. Hey guys, I'm just looking for some advice on a sort-of LEGO related topic... I have two cousins who each gave me a complete Cloud City set back in 2005... I didn't know the value and gave one full set to my best friend, who is now in his Dark Ages. As for the other, I completely demolished it and distributed the parts to my other friends... My only remnants are the Cloud City Luke and Leia... Anyway, I mentioned that my friend is in his Dark Ages. Do you think it would be rude to ask for it back? I'm sure he doesn't remember that I gave it to him... Thanks for the advice, legozebra

  17. Here is my entry for SoNE Ep. I: In the deep of Cloud City The squad with the soldier Wedge09 is tasked to reach a Rebel cell hinding in the lower sections of Cloud City. The squad find the rebel cell but the Imperial find them and the fights began. In the rebel retreat, soldier Wedge09 is the last man to retreat in the technical room. The Imperials are coming... ...and the rebels retreat. If you use lights? In this two last photos, I try to give more atmosphere using some lights. C&C are always welcome, I hope you enjoy my small work
  18. 'Fixing' the hyperdrive Hi, this is my entry for Episode I of SoNE. The main problem with this MOC was a lack of source material that I could use, just Google 'Hyperdrive' to see what I mean Anyway, I based it on a design that I found in my, ever useful, 'Millennium Falcon Modified YT-1300 Corellian Freighter' Haynes Manual. And, for non-UK folk, the wonderful people at Haynes usually write manuals on DIY car repairs.... so it's a bit of a change from their typical books! In my MOC, Lobot (still in Stormtrooper armour), makes some delicate 'adjustments' to the Hyperdrive so that the rebels won't be able to escape the Imperial blockade. I originally intended to make this a lot larger, but from the cross-sections in the manual it's really cramped, so I decided to keep it small. 'Isn't that pretty, it's almost a shame to break it': As usual, I've illuminated this using Technic LEDs. Side view: I'm quite pleased with this, especially the main 'cooling tower'; it took far longer that I'd hoped but I'm a very slow builder. Another side view: This shows the entire MOC. I built it to be modular, so the sections can be split apart. View from above: I used lots of dark bluish-grey grills this time, I thought it might help to break up the light-bluish grey Completing essential repairs on the Hyperdrive: I appreciate that in The Empire Strikes Back, Chewbacca spends most of his time trying to re-build C-3PO, but I just couldn't have a Falcon MOC without Chewie. In this scene Chewie is overseeing the repairs to the Hyperdrive, by a Cloud City technician, or is that vice-versa? C & C welcome. Cheers, Robin

    [SoNE EP.1] Was that a Wookie

    Red Squad Six located and rounded up several civilians ready to evacuate. It’s time to make our way to the rendezvous point on the East landing pad. Upon opening the entry to the main hall we heard a sound "AUGUUUGUUUGUUUGRRRGHHHHH!" "Was that a Wookie?" "Get back, Stormtroopers!"
  20. (Previously) Rebels were evacuating the citizens, luckely we arrived just in time to counter their escape. It really was close, if we would have arrived just a moment later they would have escaped. I had taken position on a tower to control the battle zone from above with my newly upgraded sniper. I hope you like it. More pictures of the Corellian Freighter can be found here (brickshelf).
  21. Mission brief: Rebel Pilot Pihlbrick, you will be carrying two troopers to a small landing platform in sector 30T. The area is controlled by Imperial stormtroopers, but a small group of rebel friendly civilians have evaded them so far and are waiting for a vessel to carry them out. For this mission you will be flying the RM-09 Shuttle Transport. It is especially vulnerable when the landing gear is exposed, so try to keep it in the air, in stead of landing on the platform. We have Y-wings in the area, which will be able to supply some air support should you need it.

Closer to the RM-09, my character is visible Close up of the scared civilians - You can clearly see the Y-wing rushing to provide cover.

    [SonE Free Build] Sabotage

    This is my third Ep 1 free build, to get the complete story check these out first: http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=85637 http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=85976 It didn't take us long to find them. The Imperial Forces had hidden their TIE fighters in the one of the Cloud City service hangars.Out of sight but still ready to be deployed at a moments notice. We'd seen 3 fighters take off as we were approaching, but if we could put the remaining 5 out of commission our evacuation shuttles could hopefully approach without being blown to bits. "Prepare your thermal detonator" Sgt. Logan told me. He placed his detonator on the fuelling station, and I quickly followed suit. The resulting explosion would blow out the entire hangar and send what was left of the TIE's plummeting towards Bespin. As we were about to head out, both the doors to the hangar slid open. I saw their white boots even before the door was open: Stormtroopers. "Braze yourselves" Sgt. Logan yelled, "We're gonna have to shoot our way out!". The sneaking part of the mission was definitely over... Some detail shots: And a bonus shot of the greebling: Original image here: http://farm4.staticf...73b657908_c.jpg C&C welcome! I must admit I was not very inspired while building this, feels a bit square and boring to me (or am I just bored of my own ideas? ). There are a few things I know I need to do: - Build a foundation or something so the bottom shadow is eliminated - Move the Endor rebel by the stairs a bit so he's not blocking the only thing that's not square in the MOC - Maybe change the color of the thingamabob in the botom left corner to break things up a bit - Maybe adjust the camera angle a bit, a little higher so the walkway is more visible. Edit: Updated MOC, added a few more photos. Ready to be scored!
  23. With Episode One of Shadows of Nar Eurbrikka now launched and Bespin under invasion, I thought I'd have a go at creating one of Cloud City's residents, someone LEGO hasn't yet had a spin at. The Cloud Car Pilot, part of the Bespin Wing Guard, the security forces on Bespin. LEGO have only released one Cloud Car in the Star Wars Line, 7119 back in 2002 (thats not including the recent mini-build), and that came with Lobot, so no actual cloud car pilots have been made. Because they only feature in the film for a split second, there is little information on the uniform, so this version is mostly constructed from the action figure, which is why he has that awesome seventies moustache. Also included is the parts list so everything matches up. (Forgot to add that he is equipped with a DC-17 tiny blaster) Click the image to go to my Flickr Page, where the full size image can be downloaded for your enjoyment. I would love to see where in the universe he ends up (especially in any Nar Eurbrikka free-builds), so if you do end up using him, please post some pics or links. If there's demand for it, I can make a few more alternative pilot heads and ranks when I get a chance. ^_^
  24. Episode I - SoNE free build - Cloud City This is my first attempt at a free build for Episode I, and I'd like it to be scored As most of you know I'm just a little bit obsessed with all things Cloud City. In my opinion it's the best Star Wars environment in all of the OT & PT films, it's just magical, nothing else comes close. Actually Dagobah isn't that bad....... Anyway, all of the scenes below show Lobot (in Stormtrooper armour) searching through the Incinerator Unit and two of the corridors of Cloud City whilst looking for any remaining rebels. All of the scenes have been illuminated with Technic LEDs and I designed them to be 'modular' similar to the classic set 10123. Incineration unit: This is the room where Chewie finds C-3PO in lots of pieces. If you look closely, you'll find part of him left behind, the facility has been totally abandoned by the Ugnaughts who usually work here. The incinerator unit was horrible to photograph, never again! Main corridor: Lobot contines his search of the facility, supported by another Imperial trooper. I based the design on the corridor where Luke & Darth duel, insert music to Pulp Fiction here Another corridor: Lobot encounters a solitary droid who continues to monitor the weather station, oblivious to the choas erupting around it. Over-view: An over-view of the build without all of the LEDs, showing how it links together (well almost!). Oddly I was most happy with my design of the weather monitoring equipment (they had a lot in the City, just take a look at the scenes where Luke is hanging beneath it!) Apologies for the rubblish photo....it was late, I was tired and just wanted to finish it!! C & C welcome
  25. "We were positioned above the Prisoners and Evacuees, who would walk down with all their possessions, (precious few things at that) , to be moved to a less dangerous sector. Of course, they have to get past the Empire on Bespin first, but everyone knows that Stormtroopers can't shoot so if I were leaving I'd be more worried if they were aiming for the ship next to mine. Still, we've captured a few Imperial officers; they're off for questioning I think. No resistance. Jon McEncy. End log" My entry for episode 1 . I can't really make anything big, so I decided on a chunk of corridor. The lighting isn't good but I couldn't help that. I'm going to make a few free builds after this.
