mcphatty posted a topic in LEGO Star WarsA long, long time ago I started working on a micro scale Millennium Falcon. To begin with all I wanted to do was add detail to the Microfighter but I kept tinkering and before I knew it I had a growing collection of micro Star Wars freighters and fighters, and here they are! Instructions for all these little builds are on my Rebrickable page. Since this all started with that Falcon Microfighter the cockpit piece (a light blueish-grey 2x2 truncated cone) became my yardstick for scale. Luckily trans-black 1x1 slope pieces work as fighter cockpits at the same scale so all the ships are, and will continue to be, as close to scale with each other as I can manage, at least based on these pieces and whatever reference images I can gather from Google. Rather than carrying on doing new posts for each new ship I plan on adding them all here. All the instructions are on my Rebrickable page and there will be some photos of the real builds somewhere in this post, plus a few more on Flickr. I’m having a lot of fun creating at micro scale, it’s quite fast and satisfying and makes good use of those tiny spare parts you always get with retail sets, so if you like what you see then why not have a go yourself! I hope you enjoy these little builds and thanks for stopping by :)
This is my version of sydag's wonderful delta-7 model (which you should view here www.flickr.com/photos/sydag/sets/7215765181084275), which also incorporates elements of legorevolution's model (www.flickr.com/photos/legorevolution/albums/7215762721077...). Originally I just built legorevolution's eta-2 as per the instructions, but a while later i found sydag's version of the ship, which blew me further away. I ended up having a cockpit module from legorevolution and the wings from sydag's. But I did this before he produced his instructions and also showed his lovely series of fighters, so parts of the wings were not exactly the same to begin with. For a while I was satisfied and they began collecting dust while I did other things. I can't remember exactly when but in the second half of last year I picked it up again and started putting together obi-wan's red interceptor from the same battle, and the blue one that goes to Utapau. I fiddled with these for a while, but because I didn't have all of the parts I needed for obi-wan's ships, this one was the template for the rest. I basically finished it then, but without sticker details. This weekend I sat down and put those on, and here we have it. I'm quite proud of this one, although it's definitely too big. But that's alright with me because I felt that the movie ships themselves were unrealistically small anyway. So here you have it. Large chunks of this have remained untouched from the source material (in lego), but there are several areas, including the back wing sections, the bottom, and most of the cockpit which I have rearranged to suit my personal preferences. Enjoy ! You can view the rest of photos in the album (www.flickr.com/photos/48109771@N05/sets/72157671270667370).

addemlit posted a topic in LEGO Star WarsI heard about all the negative things about 75135 before it even came out, so I decided to mod it as soon as I got it. Using a bunch of extra pieces, some pieces from 75135, and one bricklink order, this is the finished product. https://imgur.com/gallery/I64te
