  1. These are builds inspired by or taken from the first MMO made for Lego: LEGO Universe. This game had very few real world items in sets, but two things did come out: ...a astronaut for people who pre-ordered the game in 2010... ...and a rocket that was modular in the style of the game (Nose + Cockpit + Engine) and was released in a LEGO Club event to build your own rocket. (both pictures from Brick Link) The game lasted barely past it's first birthday (October 2010 was when it started), with the plug being pulled on February 1st 12:01 AM 2012. As a testament to the game I played and loved, I built some models that continue the story past 2012 and into 2015 and beyond. Here are those builds: The Neo-Nexus Force, pilots, droids, and officers. The NIFT-E robot was designed in 2015 to compliment the thousands of Sentry (set 4416) series robots produced in 2006 by the X-POD corporation for the original Nexus Force founders. Thirty-four of these newer robots were produced in 2018 as a test batch, called the Nexus Iron Friendly Teammate - Engineer class (NIFT-E) for use as spaceship ground-crew and heavy engineering duties, including fueling and heavy duty maintenance, computer updating, and guiding ships into landing zones. They are used alongside human counterparts who work on the harder to reach areas of a ship's engine, and on life support systems. Each human master mechanic (of which every base has at least two or three of them, plus several apprentices) is assigned an NIFT-E counterpart, in which they are equal partners working towards the same goal: keeping the ships flying, the base humming with life, and repair bay as empty as possible in case of emergencies. I copied this back in 2012 from a desktop download from the old LEGO Universe game. It was carefully cut out and switched to gray scale to save ink. It is the logo of the Nexus Force. Due to the Nexus Force logo not being found anywhere but a expensive mini-figure torso from a limited edition polybag, I have decided to change the logo to something different. This new logo is seen in the 2014 CITY Arctic sets. I figure this is my in-universe explanation of the logo change: This moon base-like space base model was inspired by set 60036 (Arctic Base Camp), with a rooftop shield generator partially lifted from set 75098 (Assault on Hoth) and a sensor array inspired by set 76157 (Wonder Woman VS. Cheetah) The base consists of eight separate, interchangeable, modular sections, all of which have opening roof / wall sections for ease of access. These sections include (but are not limited too): a common bunk room, a spaceship control tower, a fusion generator, communications room, break room, and several more. Fictional history of the base: The Nexus force landed on an ice world named DY-17, (this was soon to be renamed Ice Station Destiny) in a bit of desperation, as the Maelstrom had damaged their escape cruiser, the Bright Hope, to the point of near hyper-drive core failure. The ships sensors located no technology on the surface, and not many life forms, but a lot of geothermal activity in the form of large heat/steam vents from the core to the surface, which could be used for emergency power. The ship landed, and soon the base camp for the crew of the Bright Hope was set up. It was then discovered the planet had many mineral deposits that happen to be compatible with the metal in the Hyper-drive cooling system. So, the minerals began to be mined, and pretty soon the crew had a good operation going that was almost self-sufficient and very eco-friendly. A vote was taken, and the crew chose to stay on the ice world they re-named Ice Station Destiny, as the planet had supplied all of their wants and needs. The logo was repainted to show the original Nexus logo as a distant star, signifying the journey taken by the Bright Hope to their new home world, which was symbolized by the ice-covered world on the logo. The Bright Hope and crew were eventually discovered two years after their landing on Ice Station Destiny by the Norstas of the nearby world of Beta Polaris. Bob formed a friendship with this like-minded race, which eventually became an Alliance between the two forces, and the rest is history Common bunk room, as everyone on the base sleeps in shifts in these bunks. This corner hall module also leads outside via a back door. (not visible here) The beating Nuclear heart of the base. It is powered by cold fusion, and is situated at the center of the base, under the radio communications antenna. This deep-space communications room is where every listening post the Nexus Force has comes to bear it's potentially deadly load. What are they listening for? No, it's not the latest M-TRON corporate gossip or Blacktron III secret battle plans. It's whether the Maelstrom has figured out how to invade our universe from the old pocket dimension they have been sealed away in. This ultra top secret project has listening posts attached to an uninhibited asteroid or comet in almost every known sector of inhabited space. They plan on finding out where and when the Maelstrom ever invade (if they ever do) and planning a counterattack with all available forces before they can even fully emerge through the rip in space-time. The fusion reactor's control room. This module leads outside to the base's elevated landing pad. Upstairs is the flight control tower. This tower makes landing large spacecraft easier, and helps keep an eye out for unwanted guests. It sits on top of the previous module. These computers analyze rock samples looking for fuel traces to be mined. The break room is mostly taken from set 60036, with the addition of the Death Star plans. (Why not?) The radio array on top of the nuclear reactor. SPACE VEHICLES This ship was originally set 70816, Benny's spaceship (x3), with the Unkiitty seat and radar dish removed in favor of a skylight and laser gun turret instead. The sliding wings were redesigned to be stationary and thus provide space under the turret for commander Bob. The ship also has separate passageways for crew to walk so they don't have to go outside to go to Bob, engineering, or the bridge. More recently, I combined the ship with a more elongated nose taken from the 2015 DC Comics set 76028 (Darksied Invasion). I was inspired to build this model by this cool ship by Oran Cruzen as seen here. The ship has three areas for up to eight crew to be placed, with passageways for the figures to "walk" from section to section. The rear of the ship has three engines and a rotating, elevating laser turret above. This rocket was originally poly-bag number 55001 from the failed 2010 MMO Lego Universe. Just like in the game, it can split into three modular parts connected by Technic axles. These sections are the following: -Nose-Cone -Cockpit -Engine The rockets can be dissembled into the three component sections and are interchangeable with each other, and with about 15+ other rockets available in LDD form from the Lego Universe Wiki. Also, the completed rockets can seat 1 mini-figure each. This small and nimble fighter was designed after looking at a Classic Space model I found on my hard-drive. (I think it was inspired by a model my brother bought off Brick-Link a couple years back.) Anyway, I then tore the model apart and have added four guns, larger wings, and the larger air intakes from my Nexus tower rocket. The ship features an enlarged cockpit with controls and seating for one figure. The rear of the model features one tail-fin and two engines exhaust ports. This Ambassadorial Cruiser model was originally a @hachiroku model of the the Nubian Royal Star-ship from Star wars Episode I, as seen here. This specific Naboo Royal Yacht (now a Ambassadorial Cruiser, as previously stated) has Y-wing-style engines instead of the temperamental Nubian ones for added power and a new color scheme to better fit with my Neo Nexus Force. The rear of the ship, featuring those huge Y-wing engines. (with all their original paneling still intact, which is a rarity in any galaxy!) The roof folds back, landing gear come down, and the loading ramp lowers. There is a cargo area, a bridge with seating for the pilot, and a mapping / negotiation area, because this is an ambassador's ship after all. (This is supposed to come with a globe representing a map of the Systar solar system from The LEGO Movie 2, as the Nexus Force are mapping hyperspace trade routes to that far flung System from Beta Polaris.) LAND VEHICLES This small orange automobile was originally designed as a Mad Max-like vehicle by builder Hachiroku as seen here until I turned back the clock on it into a regular, non-apocalypse version. I then decided it would work well for Bob from the Nexus Force, formerly of the LEGO Universe MMO from 2010 - 2011. (R.I.P.) I added taillights and a license plate to the rear of the car. Their is only room for one mini-figure to be seated, but the space behind the driver's seat can hold some small cargo, such as a 2 x 2 x 2 (with tile lid) crate. So, this early 1960's sports car (seen below) might replace the car already explained above. I was inspired by this Classic Space build by Jens Blomqvist to build my own version in Neo-Nexus Force colors. I guessed at the rear end, and borrowed a bunch of ideas from the front of the car in set 76077. (Iron Man: Detroit Steel Strikes) The car is missing this print on the driver's headrest. The rear of the car features two taillights and the driver / passenger side doors open up. (Side note: My brother is learning how to render in Stud.io, so he asked me for a couple challenges to test his skills... I think he did pretty good with this one and the base screenshot seen as the first picture!) This model is a slightly modified version of set 60033, Arctic Ice Crawler that I call the Mobile Ice Driller . Whereas the original set has a crane hook, this one has a much more useful drill bit. The drill is used for mining energy crystals embedded deep within the ice of the frozen world on which the Neo Nexus Force is stationed. This is a very slightly modified version of set 60035: Arctic Outpost. All I really did to this one was add the symbol to the front fender. The inside of the mobile outpost is a lab, complete with Bunsen burner and microscope with crystal sample. It seems the computer hanging from the ceiling bar is off right now, as the scientist is out collecting more samples that were dug out with the Mobile Ice Drill. The rear of the model is pretty sparse in details, and as such, their isn't much to say about it. The snow speeder you see here is a simple vehicle to aid in fetching luggage and equipment across the base. It is armed with a flare gun and a radio. These come in mighty handy when the sun sets and temperatures plummet to well below minus 125 Fahrenheit! MICRO SCALE This space station (named Odyssey II) orbits the ice world of Beta Polaris, pointed at the direction of the trans-dimensional rip in space-time that leads to Lego Universe, ready to report any threat that may emerge from the space between spaces. Odyssey II is both an advanced weapons research platform and a forum for great minds and leaders from throughout the universe.The station is the headquarters for the Neo Nexus Force, (in cooperation with the Norsta race, of course) and the home of Nexus - Polaris University. This school focuses on the meaning of time and space itself, plus performing experiments on hyper-space streamlining, artificial gravity production, theoretical physics, and sports. (Let's go Nexo-nauts!) Their are meeting rooms on one of the half of the two arms of the station, which provides the gravity for this section like a centrifuge. As such, this section is laid out so that the "ground" is towards the ends of the arms, with the center having lower gravity and the non-public front and back of the station have none and you can float weightless in. The other one of the arms features a large research facility, with many libraries and even a small university focused on the study of space, time and the many mysteries therein. The station also has "the wheel". This module provides living quarters for all the university staff, visitors, and station crew, and gravity is provided by the "ground" being the outer wall of the arms. The engines on this station allow it to move if need be, though this has never happened on a large scale beyond course correction and maintaining balance in it's orbit of Beta Polaris. The solar panels on the station are actually detectors of chaos energy, which would mean the breach between Universes is open once more and the evil of the Maelstrom is coming through. This would mean the station would be evacuated of civilian personnel and the military forces bolstered, ready to attack the swirling mass of darkness. Here we see one of the Neo-Nexus Force ships (the cruiser Bright Hope) docked on on of the four "gravity locks". These allow for the ship to sync up with the station and crew / passengers to disembark the ship. The Bridge Hope in miniature scale. (This was designed by my brother to be a counterpart to the Odyssey II space station. It is based off my mini-figure scale ship of the same name: Bright Hope) (In reality the space station model was inspired by this model by DcotorSpock888: https://www.flickr.com/photos/dr_spock_888/20558633496/in/dateposted/ plus the Babylon 5 and Star Trek TV series', the Star Wars universe, and the old LEGO Universe massive multiplayer online game.) FINAL THOUGHTS Well, that's all I've built so far, but that's not the end of the story or the models. Scott Bourgeois from MOCpages has made some pretty awesome stuff related to the Neo Nexus Force, their first allies, the peaceful Norstas (from the planet Beta Polaris in orbit of the the North Star) and the common enemy, the Xantukans. (inspired by the snake cultists from Ninjago) Here is a link to his Neo Nexus Force page with related builds: http://www.mocpages....lder.php/189764 EDITED 9/27/16: added real pics of the Robots, bob's car and updated digital screen shots of the fighters. The real pics of the space ships should be here by Sunday 10/2/16. EDITED 9/30/16: Added more real life pictures, this time of the space fighter-ships and the entire base as it sits now. EDITED 1/29/17: added new spaceship pics, and photos of Bob's car. EDITED 6/24/17: Added updated real life and digital pictures... new base pics coming as soon as the postman delivers the necessary parts! EDITED 7/1/17: Added real life pictures for update 4.0. Enjoy! EDITED 1/18/19: Added real life pictures for update 5.0, including the revised space cruiser Bright Future and a anew car for Bob. (more to come soon!) EDITED 3/7/20: Added renders of completed space base and new car. Still need to take more recent real world pictures of updated and new models! EDITED 6/22/20: Added Ambassadorial cruiser and new base screenshot. The base *should* have new real world pictures by the next week or two. Any thoughts / ideas / complaints would be appreciated!
  2. Hello everybody! Allow me to introduce my new series of MOC. To begin - Russian frigates pr.1135 (NATO designation - "Krivak"). Built in LDD. Scale 1: 350. Frigates pr.1135 - a unique series of warships, held at the Navy of the USSR and then Russia, Ukraine and India since the early 1970's to the present. In total 49 ships were built, and the construction of a serious improvement is still ongoing. "Krivak I" ASW-frigate "Krivak III" coast guard patrol ship more photos and information
  3. Hello to all, I am new here and wanted to share my very first creation with you. This is Toyota Land Cruiser FJ70 pick-up. I build it by using bricks from following sets 42000,42030,42042,42043. I took inspiration from RM8 creations but also in the past I was driving this car quite a lot in raw conditions and I have big sentiment related with this Toyota model. Pix and Video are not pro quality as this is my very first approach to build and share LEGO creation so please don't judge me too harshly form this point of view. I hope you will enjoy looking at this model. In the near future I have plan to make simple video how to build it. Under the below links you will find pix and video. https://www.flickr.com/gp/156725712@N06/bP6n4Q Below is video instruction for Lego Technic Toyota Land Cruiser FJ70 - body (part 2). Unfortunately due to file size restriction in my camera, there is missing small part of the video where is shown how to build roof and back side of the body. However this two missing bits are easy to reproduce based on the pix. For those who would like to built this body it can be also good opportunity to put a bit of own invention.
  4. Hi, Here is my latest creation. When I started, I selected several goals: - middle scale for RC playability - weight distributed to front for better crawling performance - easy removable hard top - motorized winch - realistic body and proportions as close as possible to original. Full article with building process, WIP photos and result is here in my blog(translate by goolge). It is realtively small MOC, but it has more than 1000 parts and it takes 14 monthes of building and rebuilding. Yes, I am slow builder, comparing to other guys. May be I should hire a hamster to help me:) I wasted too much time for it. So now, I am sure the proportions and functions are good enough for me. features: - Scale approx. 1:12 - Fully motorized and remote controlled - Fully removable hard top with 3 versions. 10 seconds for conversion! - Customs stickers - Openable doors, bonnet and back doors. Side doors with locks - Foldable front and rear seats - Dashboard Technic specs: - Suspension with live axles, supported by 3 links - AWD transmission with differentials in the axles and locked central differential (XL motor). Gear 20:28 - Link steering (Servo-motor) - Winch ready with motorized PTO (M motor) + ready for second PTO motor Dimensions: - Weight: 1050 gr. (including LiPo battery and additional PTO M motor) - Length: 296 mm (37 studs) - Width: 120 mm (15 studs) - Height: 160 mm (20 studs) -Wheelbase 173 mm (21,5 studs) more photos here http://www.bricksafe.../pages/rm8/FJ40 WATCH FULL VIDEO PRESENTATION HERE UPDATE: INSTRUCTION AVAILABLE You can download it now in PDF or watch my picasa album Partlist is represented in 5 versions: 1.Just chassis - 413 pcs 2.Light - 749 pcs 3.Cabrio - 883 pcs 4.Base - 1162 pcs 5.Expedition - 1284 pcs

  6. Not ten months after I gave up the idea of doing a System scale Naboo queen's cruiser with space for minifigs, hachiroku24 knocks it out of the park with his excellent build, Nubian Royal Starship MOC. This video is his build: Using spare parts and wrecking my old build, I pounded my version of this MOC out last Saturday, squeezing some light grey bits from other builds. Even though I've only used about maybe 60-70% of the original build, the result is stunning. A long awaited piece for the Phantom Menace display. I am sorry that I forgot to remove the distracting blue decals from the Mandalorian speeder parts while taking these pics - will take more pictures soon of this build as I try and swap out parts to improve it over time. I was able to get the base pretty close (except the nose) and the top, but took many liberties, especially with the underside and interiors. As for the middle, the original build uses two plates for reinforcement but since I am desperately low on light grey wedges I tried to make it work with only one plate thickness. Really happy with the 4 small interiors - throne room (Queen Amidala from Gungan sub can only lie down with the lid closed), cockpit for Ric Oliee, Droid bay with a little hyperdrive build in the middle and the loading ramp. I sacrificed a bit of slope here to accommodate my interior. Still need to install some landing struts for the underside. Love hachiroku24's use of the flat 3x3 macaroni piece on top and bottom of the cockpit. It really pops from all angles and this build is swooshable as hell! Looks so great next to the N1 cruiser. This is an inspired build, and I'd like to send a special shout out to hachiroku24 for sharing this and other fine builds on his channels.
  7. Zenith escort cruiser The Zenith was designed to escort diplomatic missions. It's sizes are 800 meters long, 240 meters wide and 290 meter height. (1 stud = 5 meters) Four main engines and three thrusters allow the Zenith to achieve high speeds comparing to ships of the same size, both in sub-luminar and superluminar speed. It has strong deflector shield, that could also protect any docked ship. The armament is composed of 3 twin-mounted turbolasers, 20 double laser turrets, ion cannon, concussion missiles and proton torpedos. (Click on pictures for bigger version) I tried some building techniques with the Zenith. First time I used bricks for the hull instead of plates. I let you guess which SW ships inspired me I'm not really happy with some areas, but I had to stop working on it. I also messed up the lighting, so the white areas are hard to distinguish of the light grey ones The internal structure is strong, and define 5 modules: the head, the center-front, the center-back, the engines, and the sides: Here is the LFX file
  8. The Dreadnaught Class Heavy Cruiser is a Star Wars warship well known from the lost Katana Fleet of the Thrawn Trilogy. At 600 meters, it was roughly half the length of a Venator and could be configured with varying combinations of turbolasers, point defense cannons, and missiles. Most of these would be located in the hull "blisters" similar to Mon Calamari ships. I was recently acquainted with the cruiser as I'm reading through the Thrawn Trilogy (Half way through the second book at the moment). Not the most sophisticated-looking ship, but a fun one to design nonetheless. As usual, it's designed to 1:2600 scale. Some additional views in the spoiler below...
  9. Upon receiving the 2016 Clone Turbo Tank I soon became curious of it's potential. I had seen rather negative reviews with the Tank as the subject matter, and soon became worried that I had made an unwise purchase. However, I happened upon BrickBros UK YouTube channel and soon thought of an idea. Perhaps I could turn this around. Using pieces from the Clone Turbo Tank I began work first on a Venator-Class Star Destroyer. Within a short period of time I became convinced that this particular vessel wouldn't work, so I decided to start over again and attempt a Pelta-Class Frigate due to the 2016 Rebel Combat Frigate being on my mind. Once finished and run out of plates I glared down upon my abomination and decided that I would rather see what Eurobricks may try. So here I leave you with a quandary. Imagine: The Galactic Republic ordered a shipment of cruisers from Kuat-Drive Yards to be delivered to Coruscant. Upon arrival it became apparent that there had been some sort of misunderstanding: the shipment contained only Turbo-Tanks! Instead of succumbing to dread, republic engineers decided to use the parts from the tanks to construct the cruisers they had ordered. Your Goal: (If you choose to accept it) Construct an alternate vessel using ONLY parts from the 2016 Clone Turbo Tank. This can either be done in LDD or reality. Upon completion upload an image (or more) to this topic. I suggest for the LDD creation that you use the following file: Clone Turbo Tank Sadly, due to my economic status there will be no prizes for a "winner." However, the best looking ship will most certainly join my fleet of Republic Vessels. The following vessels would be appreciated: + Consular-Class Cruiser + Pelta-Class Frigate + Aquarius-Class Light-Cruiser + Acclamator-Class Frigate + Venator-Class Star Destroyer I would share images of my failed attempt but I fear that its disturbing complexion my cause a disruption in your appetite or cause nausea. I thank you dearly for reading this long and rather odd post. I do hope that you attempt this challenge and post your own creation, whatever it may be! I wish you the best of luck, and may the alternate building begin!

    [MOC] Monster Toyota FJ Cruiser

    My latest build, thoughts welcome.

UPDATE: Instruction avaiable - at BrickVault UCS First Order Resurgent-class Star Destroyer by Kommander, auf Flickr Size: 109cm x 52cm x 25cm Parts: 7855 LEGO STAR WARS UCS FO Resurgent-class Star Destroyer Render by Kommander, auf Flickr UCS First Order Resurgent-class Star Destroyer by Kommander, auf Flickr UCS First Order Resurgent-class Star Destroyer by Kommander, auf Flickr And some instruction pages. Instruction by Kommander, auf Flickr You can find more pictures HERE Original post: Hey Eurobricks I wanna share with you my new project - a First Order Resurgent-class Star Destroyer in UCS-scale. To avoid another long time MOC in WIP Nirvana I started this time with little help from LDD. Dimensions, main frame, angles... took me about a year to set these parts. Because of the LDD file I generated instructions and and part lists for me. On the picture you can see an early version of the ship and one of the latest with much more details. For the moment only one digital render of the ship. There will be some adjustments/tweaks in the "real" version but most of it works fine for me. I already finished the main frame with the instructions... and its good! More pictures will be on flickr Greetings Kommander
  12. Hi everyone, I have build my own version of the 6492 Hypno Cruiser. It is motorized and I will add an IR receiver for the kids at Lego World next week. Here is a picture from another angle. The wheels and the propeller are connected and powered by a L-Motor of the Power Functions. For more pictures see my Flickr album. Feedback and questions are welcome. Sander
  13. Hi guys! I searching a long time for the Republic Cruiser 7665. When I gave up the search it came to my mind to build my own vision of this ship with some parts of the city set 60125. A little later, when the model was finished, I managed to get 7665 ;) However, I do not want to withhold my version of the Consular-Class Cruiser. So I share it with you: RC1 by IRONDUCK, auf Flickr RC_7 RC_5 RC2 RC_3 RC_6
  14. The goal here was to build a MC80 flagship for my Rebel fleet that was: a) As closely to scale as possible with 6211 Star Destroyer. b) Larger (longer) than any of my other Rebel capital ships i.e. Phoenix Home or Tantive IV. The result is below, a build I will continue to preen and cycle out better parts/colors for. I think there should be a smattering of more small orange pieces. I am more concerned with how it looks on the shelf now than with any screen accurate considerations. But it does scale very nicely with the Star Destroyer so far (pic to come). The engines are a little... large. Truth is, those blue minifig stands for Lego Dimensions are way more useful to me in a build like this. I will likely shrink the main rear engines somehow but I also need to figure out how to add the other dual engine pods on either side behind each large shuttlebay. There isn't any inside space, but I do display it with my A Wings, B Wings and next to the bridge part of 7754 Home One Mon Calamari Star Cruiser so it looks good with lots of Rebels hanging out in front of it. Would like to hear any suggestions builders may have on improving it. I was only using my spare parts for this so I could certainly invest in some better components for it someday. Thanks for looking.

    Imperial Arquitens Light Cruiser

    After a looong time, I finally finished it! This is the Thunderwasp (from Thrawn. Apologies if it does not look like it) which measures about 5/6 the length of the SSD Executor. Size comparison The bridge The underside And finally the simple interior.( Side panels openable but LDD glitched) Pls let me know if any improvements can be made!
  16. Hi everyone, I'm back with some new old creations! Those are models that I built between 2008 and 2011 and which have now been disassembled. This is my Midi-scale model of the Acclamator-class assault transport seen in Attack of the Clones, the outstanding Dark Horse "Star Wars: Republic" comics, the 2003 Tartarovsky Clone Wars cartoon, the 2008 Filoni Wars cartoon, and the videogame Empire at War. I built this when I was 13 or 14 years old, so please don't be too harsh on me, I like to think I've improved since then.

Same scale as this one, but much stronger in-universe...
  17. This Classic Space ship was built for my brothers' fleet by me. The windscreen is not available (yet), but it does come on a 2017 not-yet-released Star Wars set. I believe I am the first to use that cockpit for a CS build. This ship features six guns and five crew members, with seats for each inside the easily accessible interior. The front of the ship should feature one of this print. The model has two smaller boosters and one (quite large) engine made of 20 smaller ones. The front canopy and the middle roof lift away individually to reach into the crew areas. Each of the five crew members has a seat. Behind this leaded glass resides the nuclear fusion reactor, the heart of the ship. The five brave crew members, one of which should be wearing this uniform instead as the ship's commander. The LDD file is available here. As usual, comments, questions and complaints are always welcome! I don't know if this one will be built in real bricks, to tell you the truth, as my brother may or may not ever build it. (But if he doesn't I will someday!)
  18. My absence from posting new topics is because of this beast of a moc. Near finished but still lacking an exterior for the rear. imperial light cruiser by Darth Hammy, on Flickr Size comparison with two 75055s imperial light cruiser by Darth Hammy, on Flickr Pls stay tuned for the official launch!
  19. Space... vast and endless as time itself, yet filled with many lifeforms bound by Creativity. The Odyssey project was designed to protect life from the forces of Chaos and Destruction, no matter the cost. But it serves another purpose too, as a gathering place of aliens races' leaders and a meeting of the great inventive minds in the universe. From times of war to times of peace, the Odyssey space station has stood proudly as a beacon of light to the many worlds darkened by the forces of evil. Now that beacon is threatened by mysterious forces from beyond our dimension, plus old foes that have resurfaced in this time of peril. The plea has gone out for help to save Imagination... Will YOU answer the Call? Fictional info: This space station (named Odyssey II) orbits the ice world of Beta Polaris, pointed at the direction of the trans-dimensional rip in space-time that leads to Lego Universe, ready to report any threat that may emerge from the space between spaces. Odyssey II is both an advanced weapons research platform and a forum for great minds and leaders from throughout the universe.The station is the headquarters for the Neo Nexus Force, (in cooperation with the Norsta race, of course) and the home of Nexus - Polaris University. This school focuses on the meaning of time and space itself, plus performing experiments on hyper-space streamlining, artificial gravity production, theoretical physics, and sports. (Let's go Nexo-nauts!) (this picture has a description of the areas of the station. See here for a bigger look at the picture so you can read it!) Their are meeting rooms on one of the half of the two arms of the station, which provides the gravity for this section like a centrifuge. As such, this section is laid out so that the "ground" is towards the ends of the arms, with the center having lower gravity and the non-public front and back of the station have none and you can float weightless in. The other one of the arms features a large research facility, with many libraries and even a small university focused on the study of space, time and the many mysteries therein. The station also has "the wheel". This module provides living quarters for all the university staff, visitors, and station crew, and gravity is provided by the "ground" being the outer wall of the arms. The engines on this station allow it to move if need be, even through hyper-space, though this has never happened on a large scale beyond course correction and maintaining balance in it's orbit of Beta Polaris. Here we see one of the Neo-Nexus Force ships (the cruiser Bright Hope) docked on one of the four "gravity locks". These allow for the ship to sync up with the station and crew / passengers to disembark the ship. The solar panels on the station are actually detectors of chaos energy, which would mean the breach between Universes is open once more and the evil of the Maelstrom is coming through. This would mean the station would be evacuated of civilian personnel and the military forces bolstered, ready to attack the swirling mass of darkness. The Bridge Hope in miniature scale. (This was designed by my brother to be a counterpart to the Odyssey II space station. It is based off my mini-figure scale ship of the same name: Bright Hope) This vessel is included in the LDD file. (In reality the space station model was inspired by this model by DcotorSpock888: https://www.flickr.com/photos/dr_spock_888/20558633496/in/dateposted/ plus the Babylon 5 and Star Trek TV series', the Star Wars universe, and the old LEGO Universe massive multiplayer online game.) As usual, Comments, Questions, and Complaints are welcome! EDIT 3/9/17: The model has been updated, and the pictures retaken and uploaded.
  20. Fictional background info: Built in 1919 by the evil country of OGEL, the Vladek is a diesel powered battle cruiser originally intended for use by finding enemy ships and sinking them with it's nine guns on three turrets. This ship was finished too late to serve in World War I, and so sat until 1922, when Lord Sam Sinister manged to convince the mysterious leader of OGEL to let him borrow it to scourer the globe looking for valuable and dangerous artifacts of immense power. The Vladek has been Sam's base of operations in several campaigns such the Orient Expedition and Dino Island, and he has the full might of the OGEL military behind him as his personal army. Only time will tell if that is enough to stop Johnny Thunder and his pals! In the Real world: This Adventurers-style ship happens to be based off set 3829, Fire Nation Ship from a decade ago. (2006) The ship is 85 studs long, while being made to be 20 bricks in height and 16 studs in width. The ship is modular, with the roof and bridge removable from the war room and each other. The menacing skull on the bow of the battlercruiser signifies it's evil captain and crew! The bow, or front, of the ship is tapered to a point much like on my 1920's Tramp Steamship. while the stern (or rear) is pretty flat. The name "Vladek" should go on the exposed studs back of the ship, as that's the vessel's name. (I haven't got those letters yet!) The vessel features two funnels and room in the lower level for the war room, complete with a large map table. The upper floor features the wheel and a nautical telegraph. The ship has three turrets with three barrels each that can elevate up and down or rotate left to right. The crew of the battle-cruiser Vladek is on the right, while Captain Hawkins is on the left. As usual, comments, questions, or complaints are always welcome! EDIT: This vessel's was constructed just today, 1/4/17, and the page has been restructured once more. I hope you like it!
  21. Hello everybody! Allow me to introduce my new MOC - Russian missile cruiser "Atlant" (pr.1164, NATO designation - "Slava"). Built in LDD. Scale 1: 350. Comments and suggestions are welcome. More pictures.
  22. Hello everybody! Allow me to introduce my new MOC - Soviet "Berkut" class cruisers. Built in LDD. Scale 1: 350. Comments and suggestions are welcome. More pictures. The missile cruiser class "Berkut" over from the beginning of the 1970s to the mid-1980s were the basis of the Soviet Navy. Total was built 21 ships: 4 of the project in 1134, 10 project 1134A and 7 project 1134B. "Golden Eagles" were characteristic of Soviet shipbuilding school aggressive and rapid appearance, rich variety of detection and destruction systems and without a doubt is one of the most beautiful warships of the 20th century. In the Soviet classification of these vehicles belonged to the large anti-submarine ships, but its capabilities are universal, capable of long independent missions in the open ocean, so NATO classification were assigned to guided missile cruisers. Since these three ships are very similar to each other, especially on a small scale, I decided to combine them into a single MOC. I hope you'll like them. Sorry for my English ))
  23. Mods please note, this is a space model using Star Wars sets and ideas... please do not move it to the Star Wars section! This is an Imperial Navy Special News Bulletin : In a press release today, naval officials have confirmed the existence of two new ships to add on to the already constructed Star Cruiser. They are named in the post below: This is the Imperial Home Fleet with the support craft and fighters excluded from view. From right to left, we have the Combat Frigate "Huckleberry", then the Star Cruiser "Sawyer", and finally the Assault Carrier "Thatcher". These three ships form the backbone of the Imperial Home Fleet, and have been used as a threesome on many war-time missions and peaceful encounters. SAWYER - star cruiser (set 9515 MOD) Name: Sawyer Owner: Lego Empire Model: TOM Class Star Cruiser Designer: Imperial Design Dept. Manufacturer: Imperial Shipyards Engines: 16 Twin Ion Engines (TIE) Max Speed: 2,850 MPH Max Hyper Speed: 62% speed of light The ship has 16 regular engines, specifically Twin Ion Engines. The command bridge of the ship features Admiral Oswald Lyons seat (on the right) with Lt. Commander Eliza Burnside (top seat) and Doctor Andrew Sinister (bottom seat) Right: Admiral Oswald Lyons Middle: Dr. Andrew Sinister Left: Lt Commander Eliza Burnside HUCKLEBERRY - combat frigate (set 75158 MOD) Name: Huckleberry Owner: Lego Empire Model: FNN Class Combat Frigate Designer: Imperial Design Dept. Manufacturer: Imperial Shipyards Engines: 9 Twin Ion Engines (TIE) Max Speed: 2,670 MPH Max Hyper Speed: 57% speed of light The rear of the ship features two movable arms to increase the amount of engines from five to nine, bringing the vessel up to it's full speed and maneuverability parameters. THATCHER - assault carrier (set 75106 MOD) Name: Thatcher Owner: Lego Empire Model: BKY Class Assault Carrier Designer: Imperial Design Dept. Manufacturer: Imperial Shipyards Engines: 3 Boosted Output Twin Ion Engines (BO-TIE) Max Speed: 2,770 MPH Max Hyper Speed: 63% speed of light The rear of the ship features three supercharge BO-TIE engines (Boosted Output Twin Ion Engines) that are cutting edge when it comes to light speed percentage. However, they are temperamental and have never been tested to their full power of 63% of the speed of light... usually they cap it at about 56% to keep the fleet moving at the same speed as it's slowest member. Thank you, that is all!

NOTES on the fleet In reality, these ships were originally Lego sets remade in LDD on Eurobricks that I modified either a lot (set 9515 The Malevolence) a little (75106 Assault Carrier), or somewhere in between. (75158 Combat Frigate) They were originally recreated by these Eurobricks users: ADHO15, (for the Malevolence in the middle) ArmstrongYong (for the assault carrier on the right), and TheNerdyOne (Combat Frigate on left) before being modified by me. No LDD file will be made available for now, but the real life pictures (and the file) will be put up as soon as I build them, around the start of November. That's all for now, and if you have any thoughts, complaints or questions, feel free to ask!
  24. First off, I just want to say this set is apparently VERY popular, (and for very good reason!) as I tried in May to get one and the LEGO store was out for a long while. I finally got the second-to-last one on double points VIP points day on the 7th of this month. The following post is not a perfect analysis, but I thought I'd show off what I did to the contents of this set as no reviews are out yet.... though this is NOT a review! This vessel is a slightly modified set 30152,( Weekend Getaways). I removed the tall poles serving as radio transmitters / receivers plus I added a surplus reverse tile to the bridge's computer to keep it stable. The inside is the same as the stock set, with cup rack, stove, sink, tables and chairs. The rear porch and front bedroom are also the same as designed. The ship is incredibly light - more than my similar sized Adventurers tugboat and I would highly recommend it for it's play-ability and cool looks. The rear awning just oozes coolness, and is the one spot where I screwed up. (The fabric holes are just big enough to go onto the pins, not between them and the frame as I originally thought. I nearly tore it taking it apart again, but luckily I did not!) This model was made from leftover parts of set the C model of 30152 (Weekend Getaways) and several pieces from my own LEGO collection. I modified the original design to have four lights for navigation and a gray engine instead of a white one as used in the set. The model seats one figure and has barely enough room for a single standing passenger. ....that's about all I have in regards to this set comments-wise. As always, Thoughts, Comments, Questions and or Complaints are welcome, but please try to be kind! Thanks again for reading, Murdoch17
  25. Good day! This was an experiment for me ,I combined system and technic bricks in one model, something I never done before. This resulted in a failed replica of the original, but served as a good lesson to me. In the last three years I haven't built anything from system, and my pre-2013 creations were really bad. The model I tried replicating was a Vapid Police Cruiser from GTA IV videogame. Fortunately there's a whole wikia dedicated to GTA ,so finding resource information was very easy, there even exists an image of the police livery . For those not familiar with the game , here's a picture of how looks the car: And this is how ended looking mine: I see a lot of errors, most of them are because of my limited resources but others are because I have very small experience building bricks. On a bright side I managed to fit these functions: Drive and steering Working steering wheel Detailed dashboard Opening hood(bonnet) ,trunk and doors Stickers Working front lights Adjustable seat ^probably the most boring underside you have seen in your life^ Bricksafe I haven't made a video yet, I have planned something unusual I hope my camera will be able to film like I want to. LDD is at 90% 100% I hope this isn't too bad to post here , please post your recommendations about the combination of both building styles , because the connectors in system are killing me . I promise the next time I will post something better than this! Vote in the poll, it will help me making better creations :)
