  1. Hello all! This is my first attempt at a UCS style MOC. I've been wanting to redo all my playset Star Wars sets, so I decided to start with the TIE Fighter, and I am really happy with the results. If you want to get the instructions, I posted them on ReBrickable for download. Here is the model from the front and back: And here it is with my other UCS sets: For those who are interested, here is some of the earlier versions of the model. First, this is what I dubbed the fat TIE. Then, the wings got slimmed down. At this point they were still plates instead of bricks. This was the last iteration before I built the physical model. It looks a lot like the final version, but it could not support its own weight, so the cockpit and arms were completely changed.

    [MOC] Star Hawk II

    Hi everyone, This is build for the contest on LowLUG: Recreate a set. I wanted to build a new version of the Star Hawk II of the Unitron. For more pictures, please look into my Flickr album.
  3. Yet another LEGO TIE Fighter. How far can this classic design be pushed? How many ways are there to build an eye sandwitched by hexagonal solar panels? Is there a perfect design already? This is where beauty of LEGO as form of modelling strikes with full power, as answers to these questions are: Very far, infinite ways, and no, there is no perfect design available and never will be. In 2014 I have built this: It worked, and I think for 2014 and what was available back then, it was pretty good. It had obvious flaw though: no space for a minifigure, and it was also a little too small in scale. I was limited mostly by the fact there were no proper cockpit pieces, and my attempt with literally the only other one was... not spectacular, not to mention it needed painting with A LOT patience required. The new model takes advantage of this cockpit piece, which allowed me to push that original 2014 design further. I know, I am late to the party, years - literally - behind other designers of great TIE models, like Bricks Feeder or Rebel Builder, yet I hope I can bring something new into the T/F building scene. Originally I thought I would just stretch the build here and there but no, heheh, no way. Literally the only unchanged parts are the eight quarter (or one-eighter?) dome pieces, which are to me still the only way to have smooth and roughly spherical design without holes all around. Unfortunately when we look at a closeup of a real movie-filming model of the T/F we see how far are we from true modelling but I say we're collectively inching towards it pretty nicely. I have said this plenty of times but original designers of TIE Fighters really did all they could to make them unbuildable properly, naturally unknowingly - who would think adult guys 30 years in the future would try to recreate the design using perhaps the weirdest medium available?. The T/F is just a sphere, two struts and two flat hexes. Except: 6-diameter central cokcpit piece would require a 9-diameter ball, minifig-scaled TIE would require an 8-diameter ball and don't even get me started on sources for TIEs dimensions. If you think that Illustrated Guide To Star Wars vehicles is helpful, well, not much. I dare to say this book did awfully lot of harm to LEGO Star Wars MOCing scene. So is my TIE perfect? No, not yet. I promise though, I did all I could to make it as good as possible, with no compromises made. And this time it houses a minifig! The design is super sturdy to my standards, nicely swooshable - for a reason, but I will get to that later. Naturally having a T/F built opens a way towards the Interceptor, which for me is among the best looking spaceship designs in any sci-fi. While the core design is similar, the ball has some differences, mostly to accomodate longer struts. This is because LEGO curiously didn't develop 2x9 plates and for once I was in a situation where I can't really replace 2x9 plate with anything without compromising structural integrity. Having that solved I went onto the wing design and OH GOD INTERNET WHAT HAVE YOU DONE. If anyone knows angle on the panels and can prove it, gets a free beer. With shipping. Because the wings are angled in all dimensions, good luck guessing proper values from photos. Because of the IGTSWV book, half of the models (and I don't even mean LEGO models) existing are wrong. And then because of SW animated series, the other half of the models are also wrong... ...so my source of reference was this: Then after having all that done, I experienced another unexpected problem: The ship is top-heavy and won't stand straight. I added tiny legs on the bottom edges of wings which help a bit, and because the design is quite sturdy, the T/I requires no stand. There you have it. Yet another T/F and T/I. I hope you like the designs and I hope I managed to introduce something new to the very competitive scene. Enjoy! ...but wait, there is more! I would not build these models if not a commission request from BrickVault: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrhb3SP2lZBgguLHIWWuHOQ Originally it was meant to be just a few TIE models based on the 2014 design I had, just LDD files, but over time we developed a much more interesting designs and... instructions for each of them! The instructions are paid and please understand, it took weeks to develop them, error-proof, make the experience enjoyable and builds sturdy enough to be handled easily. Normally I do not make instructions, as I prefer to build with real bricks than to do electronic designs. The instructions are designed to have dozens of simple to follow steps with just few pieces per step, have submodels where needed, parts list for each step and a total bill of parts at the beginning. Additionally, in few places, there are notes to watch out for some particular details. I can fully understand now what LEGO designers go through and I can imagine amount of effort required for making instructions for larger and more complicated designs. I am pretty sure it took more time to design instructions for the recent UCS Millennium Falcon than to design the model itself. Thanks for watching and Happy New Year!
  4. Over six months ago I posted this starfighter, which won Best Medium Space MOC at Brickfair VA 2019, and received some really good advice for improving the build. For the Mk. II build, I worked on the colour blocking as to differentiate primary hull paneling (red) from more delicate "technical" areas (black and some bits of dark bley). I also improved the cockpit layout as well as trying to make the weapon/engine pods look more modular. There are some additional changes to the space-frame itself, especially to the internal scaffolding for better structural integrity. Overall, this is far closer to the vision I had for the design of the original Asterion. This MOC was going to be attending Brickfair VA 2020; however, since said LEGO expo was cancelled for understandable reasons I am posting the MOC here instead! Let me know what you all think! More photos on this MOC's Flickr page!
  5. Hey all, I don't know if this MOC is technical enough to be posted on the Eurobricks forums, but I wanted to share with you my current build of the first starfighter MOC I built after coming out of my dark age. It is designed to be a multi-role starfighter, equipped as both a heavy reconnaissance and strike fighter. The Stormdrake is outfitted with three powerful magnetically thrust vectored fusion drive arrays, heavy shields with numerous emitter vanes, a host of sensors and scanners including an advanced reconnaissance imaging and analysis suite, plus a high-gain sub-space radio antenna located on the aft ventral side of the ship. The fighter is armed with four particle beam-lance cannons as well as six plasma-burrowing thermonuclear anti-capital ship missiles. On a build note, the more I worked on this MOC, the more it took on a vaguely draconic appearance, especially the landing struts. A bit of fantasy whimsy in an otherwise sci-fi setting. The inspiration for this MOC came from designing a main hull similar to the Liberty Patriot light fighter from Freelancer alongside wings that vaguely resemble the Vagyr assault craft and lance fighters from Homeworld 2. The role/classification of this starfighter was also inspired by the modern-day combat roles of the F/A-18F Super Hornet. Anyway, thanks for checking this MOC out and let me know what you think!

    [MOC] Focke-Wulf FW190A

    Features: 2 x 8mm MG 4 x 20mm Cannon Canopy slides back to open Throttle lever Cockpit accepts a minifig pilot Naviagation lamps (red, green, white) Retractable landing gear National insignia built in bricks; no stickers used Camouflage painting applied on all sides using bricks Engine can be separated for inspection
  7. Hi all, This is a German jet fighter in WW2. Features: - 4 x 30mm cannon barrels visible on the nose - National insignia made in bricks; no stickers used - Canopy opens backwards - Accepts a minifig pilot - Retractable landing gear - Navigation lamps (red, green, white) - Fuselage can be broken into 2 parts - A transparent support is required when the gears are extended because the tail is heavier than the nose. In the real fighter the nose would be way heavier because of the cannons and the engines, but my model is all ABS plastic so the weight difference cannot be put into practice.

    [MOC] Sopwith Camel F.1

    This is my own creation of a Sopwith Camel F.1 biplane fighter aircraft. You can download the instructions for this MOC from my Rebrickable post here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-43722/BrickHugger171/sopwith-camel/?inventory=1#comments
  9. Hi all, The model is Messerschmitt Bf109, the most numerous German fighter in WW2, if not the most famous. I designed it from scratch and did not take features from other creators' work. I spent about 7 years designing and financing this project, and I finally finished it last year. Thanks to the work-from-home policy I don't have to drive as much, and I have more free time to share my creations with the world. You will see that some parts are in the new bluish grey while some parts are in the old grey. There are different patterns of 1x2 jumpers. A few parts even show cracks. This is the testament to the time spent to build this up, so I decided not to replace them with new parts in perfect condition. The 1x2x3 train door pieces and the 1x1 round plate with tow ball don't come in the new light bluish gray anyway. The building technique I used to make the aerodynamic fuselage is similar to the 3D wooden puzzle made out of interlocking thin boards. You can see the vertical and horizontal layers coming together to form a pixelated curvature. The width of the fuselage starts in 4 studs and reduces to 3 studs, then 2 studs, squeezing all the way to 1 stud. The internal connection is achieved with technic pieces, locking hinges and clips. I use it a LOT in my models because it allows you to add complicated painting schemes to the surface while maintaining the correct form and structural integrity. Notice that I still try to use as much slope/wedge/curved pieces as possible. Features: - 2 x 20mm cannons mounted on wings - 2 x 8mm MG on top of the engine (represented by a pair of black 1x4 hinge pieces) - 20mm cannon mounted coaxial with the propeller axle - Ammunition stowage (accepts any 1x2 tile as ammo belt) - Skeleton canopy opens/closes like the real thing - Cockpit has enough space to accept a pilot wearing an aviator helmet and a life jacket (new small type) - Throttle lever tilts back and forth - Instrument panel represented by 2 hollow studs in black - Service doors on wings - Landing gear retracts completely into the wings (VERY sturdy as well!) - Tail gear may be steered - Navigation lamps. (red, green, white) It's an homage to the tradition of Lego's airport sets that always had navigation lamps on the commercial airliners. - Engine cowl opens for inspection; exhaust pipes and ignition system visible - Behind the engine you can see the turbocharger intake and a hole for the hand crank - Fuel tank cap can be opened - Both wings may be detached for towing on road - Fuselage separates into 4 major components (to swap/combine painting schemes easily) - National insignia is made out of bricks; no stickers used. Designed to be visible from all sides. - A jettisonable fuel tank may be attached to the bottom I have posted a video on YouTube so that you can see the moving parts: Pictures: (The wings may look very fragile because they are hanging on the 1x2 locking hinge pieces, but there's another pair of clips inside the fuselage that connect to the top side of the wings. The wings are actually so strong that you can lift the whole thing by the tip of a wing. Details explained in the video.)

    [MOC] Messerschmitt Me 262

    The Messerschmitt Me 262 was the world's first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft. A historical documentary I saw on TV inspired me to build this aircraft in particular. It features retractable landing gear and just enough space to fit a minifig head inside the cockpit. The main colour of the fighter is Dark bluish gray while the underside of the plane is mostly done in Light bluish gray. by legomanijak, on Flickr by legomanijak, on Flickr by legomanijak, on Flickr In order to retract the landing gear a small hatch has to be removed first and afterwards the landing gear has been retracted the hatch can be returned to it's position. by legomanijak, on Flickr by legomanijak, on Flickr by legomanijak, on Flickr by legomanijak, on Flickr by legomanijak, on Flickr by legomanijak, on Flickr by legomanijak, on Flickr by legomanijak, on Flickr by legomanijak, on Flickr by legomanijak, on Flickr by legomanijak, on Flickr by legomanijak, on Flickr by legomanijak, on Flickr

  13. Hi! Design of my new MOC is ready! This is my first MOC from Clone Wars! Darth Maul's Gauntlet Fighter Main functions: - 735 pieces, - 1 minifigures - Darth Maul from Star Wars Rebels - a lot of details PDF Instructions - read description on my YouTube movie or check on Rebrickable! What do you think? More on my Youtube, link below! Also available on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-32053/EDGE OF BRICKS/mauls-gauntlet-fighter/#comments
  14. The Gauntlet was a Kom'rk-class fighter/transport owned by the former Mandalorian splinter-faction leader turned bounty hunter Pre Vizsla. Designed and constructed by the Mandalorian starship manufacturing corporation, MandalMotors, the Gauntlet took its name from the Basic language translation of the Mando'a word, Kom'rk. Equipped with powerful engines and twin laser cannons, Gauntlet fulfilled dual roles as a troop transport and starfighter, and was maintained by Vizsla— former leader of the Mandalorian splinter-group known as the Death Watch—as his personal transport during the galaxy-spanning Clone Wars. It was later owned by his son, who used it in bounty hunting during the Galactic Civil War era. The Gauntlet was a Kom'rk-class fighter/transport, and like the smaller models of the Kom'rk-class, measured 52.3 meters in length. Gauntlet possessed broad, angular, rotating wings the rotated to an upright landing position when grounded. The starship was also equipped with dual, forward-facing laser cannons located at the nose of the main body, and powerful engines that made Gauntlet one of the fastest troop transports in the galaxy. (not canon) owner info: After being proclaimed dead (Pre Vizsla faked his death at the hands of Darth Maul), and losing his title of leader of Death Watch to the Sith lord, Pre Vizsla escaped Mandalore on his ship, the Gauntlet. He fled to parts unknown, and had his ship repainted into a rusted colors of browns, grays, and black. Pre Vizsla held out for the rest of the Clone Wars on the desert world of Tatooine, hiding his ship in the bustling space-port of Mos Esiley at Docking Bay 93. It was around this time he found himself a wife, one of the refugees from the further out in the Outer Rim sieges. Her name has never been recorded as she died in child birth, but their son has: Par Vizsla. Around the time of rise of the Empire, the father went into business of bounty hunting, and Pre made sure to teach his son the importance of their shared Mandalorian heritage. When Pre died of old age around 3 years Before the Battle of Yavin ( or 3-BBY for short), Par Vizsla took his father's ship and armor and began bounty hunting full-time. He took this profession as a sort of challenge against Boba Fett, the "top dog" of the bounty hunting world, and another Mandalorian-armor wearing hunter. Their rivalry would go on for some time, until Boba was "accidentally" eaten by the Sarlacc. Par Vizsla then had to fight off several new threats to his "top Mandalorian" status, until finally being lost in the deep core chasing a bounty and was then termed MIA around the time of the Battle for Jakku.... though what truly happened to him and his ship will never fully be known. After all, he was chasing the Millennium Falcon! The cockpit seats two figures, one pilot / owner, and one bounty in handcuffs. The cargo area folds up, (and down) and can store a single crate. The ship, while landed, has the two side arms fold upwards 90 degrees. Builders notes: This model is a color-changed and slightly modified version of set 9525 (Pre Vizsla's Mandalorian Fighter). I liked the model, but not the color scheme, so I changed it to match one of the figures in the new Mandalorian battle pack (set 75267), who is going to pilot this ship. I removed the ability for the ship's cockpit to turn 90 degrees sideways while flying as I didn't like how it looked. The landing function still operates as intended, though. The story I wrote that goes with this model is 100% my own fan fiction. It has been inspired by the Clone Wars TV show and other bits of info from the Star Wars Wikipedia about various topics. Most (but not all) of the ship's info is straight from the Gauntlet's page on that wiki. (This model should be built in real life next year, hopefully by mid-March.)

    [MOC] 03's Viper fighter

    Small fighter initially developed by Axos for Yaegers during Xion Wars, with some of the wrecked spacecraft rebuilt and modified by the Terra Confederation. Presented version was developed for Yaeger 03. Technical specifications: Power core - Zirum Crystal based, based off leftover Aeromi technology adapted to human tech. While Axos used exclusively stabilised crystals in all tech, the Terra Confederation used artificially enhanced crystals in their modified fighters. Engines - 3 thrusters capable of propelling the Viper to a (factory limited) max speed of 200000 km/s in space. forward-facing thrusters are used for braking. Weaponry - wide range of customisation depending on Yaeger. 03's version had 4 swappable fuselage-mounted barrel guns and 2 swappable wing cannons as well as missiles. Refractor and shield-breakers were installed along with un-disclosed tech. Lore over (for now). This model was an accident most of it's development - it started out during the dissasembly of "Bugeye" , when the 3D panels were placed back to back. The fiting placement of bionicle chestplate as rear part of tail was a pleasant surprise. The Technic looks are missing Technic functionality (only cabin is openable, the main thruster does not rotate for VTOL mode...) but not too shabby in the end. Photos (folder not yet public, but miniatures below can be enlarged)

    [MOC] Pink Huntress in the hangar

    When the Pink Huntress is not scouting the galaxy for criminals, it is in a hangar. Two villains have found the base of the Pink Huntress. They want to end the Pink Huntress once and for all. For more pictures see my Flickr album. Sander
  17. It is my second try at creating a model the way Lego does but at the same time being as sleek and faithful to original as possible. It is not a 100% MOC, because it incorporates some basic structure techniques of 75101 mixed with 75211. 759 pieces plus 56 for a display stand.

  20. Probably the closest the humankind has ever gotten to an irl starfighter. Not a fan of white, but unfortunately that is the dominant color of my panels (wonder why). Heavely basing myself off the Sukhoi SU47 "Berkut" with the angled double tail and FS wings, as starfighters are banned. Started off witht rear part as imo these Mars Mission wheels resemble jet exhausts. Most probably will include basic aileron controls , not so sure about the rudder(s) Maybe a third vertical stabiliser to kick it off? current progress:
  21. This is the final version of my Imperial TIE Fighter based on original LEGO sets. I've made PDF step-by-step instructions as well. If anyone would like to build this one, instructions are available at rebrickable.com for 6,99 Euro here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-19900/barneius/imperial-twin-ion-engine-fighter/#comments Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr

    Hi all, Shameless post here looking for feedback from my redesigned Eris fighter. I can’t post the image here for some reason but this is the link: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/c19983a7-da53-442f-886d-44be3bedeeff Regards Shroud
  23. And it's here! After an hour of hard work (not really) I present to you a Tie Interceptor!!! Made out of only the bricks from 75211 with 8 pieces to spare. Here is a pilot for scale Edit: The 2 light bley 1x6 tiles aren't part of the set The wing connections are very sturdy but the sharp pointed panels aren't really. Any suggestions? These are the spare pieces Some more pics on different angles The cockpit also stays the same Just made a stand for it Let me know in the comments of what you think Thanks for looking!

    MOC: Next Generation Star Hawk

    I wanted to build a long time something for the Unitron series. The Star Hawk II was a great model and a few months ago I got the idea to build my own version of it. The Unitron, Intergalactic Strike Force, was organized to deal with the Spyrius, who were rogues of the Blacktron Future Generation. After many searches, battles and many losses the Unitron was disbanded and the Space Police was reorganized. Now the Black Hole Gang is causing trouble in the galaxy and the police force is not enough to stop them. A pilot, who has lost a ship and a lot of money, has found a graveyard of old ships and fighters and build a fighter for himself. He called it: Next Generation Star Hawk. For more pictures visit my Flickr Album. Various Space Creations Feedback and questions are appreciated. Sander

    [MOC] AS7 "Kestrel" Air-to-Space Fighter

    Swoosh. Meet the AS7 Kestrel, the latest model of variable-environment fightercraft from Studberg Aerospace! The basic idea behind this was to create a small, fast and maneuverable fighter with a modular weapon system that packs a huge punch for its size. It's also highly customizable in theory, as those weapons are modular and can be swapped out, and most of the white and red parts are available in a variety of other colors. The two topside guns (which can swivel to face the rear, making the Kestrel deadly in dogfights) were actually the very first part I designed, then those sat around for a while while I worked out something to put them on. Most iterations were small-ish fighters inspired by similarly-sized Star Wars ships. Some of that can still be seen in the finished product, in particular the V-Wing (which I had the older set of as a kid). Bit of a Star Fox Arwing in there, too. On that note, it does look like something out of a shmup game, doesn't it? Bottom, with retracted landing gear and three VTOL thrusters visible. Initially I wanted to have it attach to a sort of launch rail (idea being that's how it would take off and land) but didn't have the pieces to do that how I wanted. Weapons removed! A lot sleeker, but it loses a bit of personality. Well, that and it's totally defenseless now. That was stupid. . As mentioned prior, weapons can also be switched around or possibly replaced with entirely new ones if the need arises. Here's a lighter-weight arrangement without missiles and the guns mounted beneath the wings in their place. Cockpit detail! I try to fill out cockpits like this whenever possible, because lone control sticks and single control panels (like you typically see in official sets...) bug me and strain my suspension of disbelief somewhat, especially in something as complex as a spacecraft. There should be a ton of buttons and switches and tech-y things! That's all for now! I leave you with our hotshot pilot and a link to the full gallery here.
