Hi there, last year I presented my Willis Tower here. Today I want to show you my newest MOC Name: Empire State Building Scale: 1:400 Height: 110cm + 3cm pedestal Bricks: 17.000 (from which about the half are 1x1 trans-black plates and bricks) Planning time: 2 months Building time: 1 month In the meantime I adapted the Willis Tower in scale from 1:410 to 1:400, so they fit together now :) ESB - Looking up ESB - Close Up W34th St. & 5th Ave ESB - Looking up ESB - Close Up Skydeck Bigger photos, more photos, Work-in-Progress-Shots, ... are in my Flickr Album. I hope you like my newest tower If you want to see it in person, it is visible from now on to May 25th in Kaiserslautern, Germany (Dinopark). Then it will be on Comic Con Stuttgart on the first weekend of July. I hope to see you there :) kind regards, Sebastian
JangoFett140 posted a topic in LEGO Star WarsNot one to start small for a few weeks now I've been working on flushing out the Echo Base Hanger display I want to build for my UCS Millennium Falcon. I've been planning this since the set was announced but couldn't really start till I had the set in hand to base everything off. It will be in a glass coffee table I'll be building to display it. The planned layout is currently 47.5" by 41.75" but I may go to 47.5" x 47.5". I'm going to use Stricklybricks 50x50 baseplates with one set getting trimmed down. I'm trying to be as accurate as possible and get all the little details I'm finding as I research that I haven't seen before. This will also display some of the rest of my collection so the ships inside will be a mix besides the Falcon. My 99 X-Wing and probably one of Cehnot's beauties and 4 different official speeder sets spanning the years. I'm using Migui94's Falcon as a placeholder as I work to confirm sizing in addition to the physical test layout I have set up. I see that last week Cehnot also started basically the same project with similar goals but he is going for the whole hanger while I only have room for some of it with size limitation. Can't wait to see his take shape and maybe collaborate on a few elements. I'm building in Stud.io first since I don't have the money to start buying all the bricks and figure it out by physical trial and error. So to get started with where I am at here is an over view of the layout. I have a lot of detailing to do on the walls but I've been waiting till I had the structural strength and sizing dialed in first as I kept tweaking. I originally had 2 full bays but they wouldn't hold an X-Wing so I widened it and also ended up raising them to fit the vents. This top down view with the yellow fence shows the 41" width. and the potential space if I expand to 47". I'm going to curve the wall behind the Falcon some more but I'm not going to go all the way around to keep the sides of the Falcon visible through the sides of the table. This front view of the bay shows the vents in the top of the bays. My current thought was stickers to detail the vents but i will probably revisit them to look ate a brick based option but scale is a limit here. The Cat Walk for the X-Wings is an item that has been done but lacking in detail. I used Enderman eye plates for the side detailing. The current support beam X cross braces are temporary. After much thinking and tinkering I decided to design and print custom pieces to go there. The 3L bar on top will be cut in half to finish the top rail on the ends. I do like Cehnot's top rail better though and may try to rework mine based on his. Some small detail builds I have are the (quite silly) Treadwell 1016 droid briefly seen twice (somehow it gets on top of the Falcon with treads...). I also have a fuel tanker cart seen between the Falcon and the X-Wing. The floor light took days to get the scale right and try to be easily lit from below. The plan it to get vinyl stickers for the sides to cover the trans-clear plates then put an LED under them trough a hole in the baseplate. Not shown here is that the front 1x2 plate is clear while the 2 under the slope grills are trans med blue to get the right light out the back. I have lots more to do but finally felt I had enough to start sharing. Any suggestions on how to improve something are welcome! I will also be overhauling the Falcon itself to be more ESB accurate. Haven't yet decided on adding an interior since it will be in a closed display. -JF140/Cody
Howdy everyone. Just got the Bounty Hunter battle pack yesterday, and I absolutely love it. I wanted a good way to display them, so I made this. Still a work in progress, but here's what I have so far. (More pictures on my Flickr) What do ya think? Thanks for looking, -JD
So, You may or may not remember a while ago, I had made my own AT-AT microfighter, which ended up looking like a mini replica rather than a cute chibi version like TLGs did. I then made a snowspeeder to go with it, as who would have an AT-AT without a Snowspeeder?! Then I got onto doing an AT-ST, because, well, they were also briefly shown to be there, at the Battle of Hoth... So anyways, I then had 1 of each. I have my own minifig scaled AT-AT, but in no way can I ever afford to do a full size Battle of Hoth. So then I got thinking... what about a MF version? So I got to LDD and cracked on with designing it, and revelled in the fact I'd need to make more of the lil guys to go in it. I had a few aims: Include Ion cannon somehow piloted by a minfig. Include Shield Generator. Include fallen over AT-AT (includes 2) Include rebel trench Include the little rebel laser turrets Include rebel base doors that can open and close. I finally managed to take some decent pictures of it this morning so, figured it was now worthy of posting here! *edit* I am also aware that I literally built the body of the AT-AT backwards... the front should be shorter and the rear should be longer... Im slowly working on reversing it... but it isn't a high priority seeing as I have 4 of them wrong lol...
