    [MOC] T-47 Snowspeeder

    Hi everyone! I built this model earlier this year as part of one of my entries to the IDS-MOC Olympics but I never came around to post detailed shots of the Snowspeeder itself. Up until now! I tried to keep it as close to minifigure-scale as possible without loosing too much detail and the ability to fit two figures into the cockpit. I am quite happy with how it turned out but of course there is still room for improvement. If you have any suggestions on how to improve it, I'd love to hear your ideas in the comments! :)
  2. A 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. My latest (September 2020) micro starship is the Ghost from Star Wars Rebels. I only watched the show two years ago but fell in love with it straight away, I assumed it would be throwaway entertainment for kids but it quickly developed the characters and story with life and grit, plus the ships and space battles are so well done! Anyway, here she is, complete with interior and tiny detatchable Phantom. 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 :)
  3. Hello everyone, it's me again with a current Rebrick of the Mocers G-Vortex. Today with the "Working Platform for UCS Hoth Base" (https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-11827/G-Vortex/working-platform-for-ucs-hoth-base/#comments). It was clear to me right from the start that this can't be the size of a real UCS version (see photos). In this respect I find the name a bit misleading. But the platform fits perfectly to my model of the Snowspeeder (75049) and into the showcase behind the starfighters. Therefore I decided to order the bricks and build it myself. All in all a nice MOC, with a very pleasant construction. Especially the struts, on which the platform rests, are in my opinion extremely well done and an absolute eye-catcher. I also decided to use light grey parts instead of the dark grey parts for the railing. Somehow I like it better this way. I also used ladders on both sides instead of only on one side (as described in the manual), because I have a preference for symmetry. A few key facts about the MOC Parts: 231 Construction time: approx. 30 minutes Costs: 22 - 25 EUR
  4. Hi, i'm in the process of making a new MOC. It will be a mini assault on Hoth MOC, BUT with a kinetic walking AT-AT as centre-piece. I have parts to somewhat test the walking mechanism, but I don't have enough parts to build the whole MOC, so I can't acquire good footage and test it properly. I'm asking for someone with quite an impressive lego parts collection to build my moc, test it and take some photos and most importantly a video of it. Together we can improve it and eventually put it up on Rebrickable. Any other suggestions and/or improvements are ofcourse welcome as well. I will add a render of the current state of the MOC, just so you have an idea of the finished MOC. Thanks.
  5. There are many AT-AT mocs. Many with great interiors. Many with great exteriors. This is my attempt at integrating both into one model. The model is minifig scale, has at least 6000 thousand pieces and stands two feet tall. It is stable enough to be picked up and moved.

Check my flickr for progress photos starting from the first LDD files. Special thanks to Cavegod and LILmeFromDaFuture. I got a lot of inspiration from their models/techniques. Let me know what you guys think. Sorry for the cell phone quality pictures. Would buy new camera but can't stop spending money on lego parts ;). I'm considering distributing/selling the LDD files for this model if there's interest. They do need some refinements, however.

    [MOC-WIP] Hoth probably around 75098?

    Hello, i don´t have much that white Bricks in Stock, first Bricklink order has arrived. 2470 used Bricks, mostly bricks, slopes, some tiles, some plates and modified. my plan is a Hoth echo base moc, which will use parts of the new 75098 or just the minifigures of it. :)

    [MOC] Hoth Echo Base

    Finally, my Hoth Echo Base diorama is done (currently being exhibited at Brickorea Convention 2018, 15~23 December in Pangyo, S. Korea). I'm a big fan of the original SW trilogy and my favorite one to watch is Ep.V. I love the look of the Echo Base and the Hoth Battle despite the boneheaded strategy put on by the Rebels (apparently hasn't improved through to Ep. VIII). (Photos updated 2018.12.21) This set focuses on the base itself and depicts the time just before the start of the Battle of Hoth. Dimensions: 160(W) x 256(L) Studs To me two of the most important features of the base are the cave entrance/exit (with heavy shield doors) and then the air/space craft bays. I've tried to replicate the shape of the cave and shield door dimensions as close to the studio model as possible. I figure the London studio just was not big enough the fully feature the original desiger's concept, and thus the makers had to squeeze everything into a modified set. Yes the cave entrance/exit is too small for the Millenium Falcon to fit through. That is why in the scene where the Falcon escapes Vader's troops, the Falcon actually shrinks in size via photographic trickery. I was just happy to stick with the actual studio set (and more economical). Although there are no real accurate maps of the base and the surrounding areas, I always figured the approach to the front of the base would be pretty well hidden by the mountainous terrain of Hoth (as Vader's shock troops are supposed to have blasted their way into the top or side of the base). Thus the front of my base is protected by relatively few troopers (as in the film) armed with some MK II Repeating Blasters. There are only a couple of DF.9 Anti-Infantry Turrets and a 1.4 FD P-Tower Anti-Vehicle Laser Cannon guarding the front (my original plan was to build the MOC in two parts: the base itself and a forward Echo Station). My DF.9 Anti-Infantry Turret design was initially featured in '[MOC] Hoth Generator Defense' with the LDD design link. https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/117121-moc-hoth-generator-defense/&page=2 [/img] My newest MK II Medium Repeating Blaster uses a black ice cream cone and a spanner wrench. Its LDD will be released in a series along with the rest (LEGO may have come up with a new receiver part for the Overwatch series which might work well). I thought of various places to put the Ion Cannon and finally settled here as I didn't want to fill that side with just lots of bricks :-) The Ion Cannon has an LED bulb embedded. You also see a Viper Probe Droid next to the Ion Cannon. The Probe Droid has lots of new design elements which LDD I'll be happy to share with you soon. A shield/power generator with four disks! Also you see a Rebel Combat Speeder in its AA role. You can find more information about the Combat Speeder below. https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/117938-moc-rebel-combat-speeder/ Han Solo returning from a recon mission. I think this is also a signature scene from the movie. Updated 2018.12.21. Now onto my command center. Updated 2018.12.21. There is that Toryn Farr whose popularity I can't quite follow. A little cramped 'Blue Room' but you have to work with what you have. Han Solo and General Rieekan having a discussion. Oh that stare! Your worshipfulness! <An acknowledgement here to Frank Diorio at dioramaworkshop.com for his wonderful command center and other decals which I've adopted here> Although a bit cramped, my command center seems to be quite close to the film set. Medical center which has been done to death. Han Solo: "Alright, don't lose your temper. I'll come right back and give you a hand." Chewbacca: "Grrrrrr!" Updated 2018.12.21. with Jerac's X-Wing Snowspeeder bays follow after actual design changes made to the studio where the base was filmed. Updated 2018.12.21. I thought the shadows over the X-Wings were the essential points. Updated 2018.12.21. You also see three GNK "Gonk" Power Droids to the right. They are really fun designs and I'll release the LDDs soon. Comparison photos. Obligatory mission briefing scene before the sortie. Updated 2018.12.21. Jerac's X-Wing is a perfect match ;-) https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/166523-moc-star-wars-the-x-wing-story/&tab=comments#comment-3017567 YSDWDY's T-47 Airspeeder (Snowspeeder) https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/138237-moc-incom-t-47-airspeeder-snowspeeder/ Also here's my service gantry model which looks good and definitely works.Updated 2018.12.21. One of two Treadwell droid models I know. This also has a nice LDD which I love. The Rebel Troop Carrier is featured in detail below. https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/117121-moc-hoth-generator-defense/&page=2 Miscellaneous: Singing in the Rain trooper. This base features some complex cave networks which cannot be fully shown. It wouldn't be pleasant trying to recover some parts dropped in there! Not the best angle, but this is how a probe droid should look. A 'blue milk' breaktime. Updated 2018.12.21. Updated 2018.12.21. One last shot. Updated 2018.12.21. Well, there you have it. This diorama set has been started in 2011 and finished only last week. That was one long project!! Hopefully now I can go on to something else - only what? ************************************************ <Photos updated 2018.12.21. with lots more goodies>

    [BH - Talz] Summertime

    Early morning in Ken Roman's base ... "I've got great news for you two! There's summer on Hoth!" "Yeah? And what should this fact mean to us?" "You are going there today. I found a really nice job. A Pantoran called me and offered quite a lot for a Talz. And he needs the body as I was told. He seems to, uhm, collect them. A strange fellow, I must admit, he fought in the Clone wars and it seems that left a mark on him. But nevermind, here are the coordinates. He won't be expecting you so take it easy" Ashton and Sid, the Bass brothers, were born on the Mandalore, a planet infected by milleniums of war. Their father, a pacifist through and through, desired a better future for his two children so he sent them away to live with his friend on Coruscant. He raised the boys to live a nice and calm life. But they genes soon came out. They pursued a career of bounty hunters. Unaware of their heritage they became a deadly duo, known and feared through whole galaxy. Now, for the first time, they are headed to the unpleasant Hoth. Somewhere on the icy planet Hoth ... "Are you sure this is it?" "How many bases do you think there are around here?" "Alright, alright. Let's do it. Give me the wrench and I'll open the door. Then shoot the target and let's get out of here. I'm tired of this cold!" "Wait, he said the client needs the body. How will we carry him to the ship?" "We'll find something, we always do." "He'll probably hear this. So hurry up and shoot him before he escapes" "Suprise!" "Huh, that was easy." "We were lucky too. He has lots of radars I see. He was probably sleeping when we came here" "Looks like we haven't ran out of luck yet. Here's our transport!" "Hurry up, it's even colder here than outside" "Well if you'd helped me it would be a lot easier. Now let's go, I have enough of this planet for quite a while. I'll tell Ken to send me to a warmer destination next time. And perhaps the one where targets aren't so heavy!" To be continued ... ---- The photo of the whole build: EDIT: added some objects and a table and fridge so that our target can drink a sip of water before meeting the bounty hunters.

  13. Hey guys, long time viewer, but I decided to make an account to share some of my Star Wars MOCs with you. Most of these mocs are already on my youtube channel, but for those here Ill be posting some images and behind the scenes. First up is the UT-AT from the battle of Mygeeto in Episode 3. Awesome ship with not enough screen time.
  14. hey yall, i recently got the 2014 at at walker and i think its about time i built a display for all my hoth vehicles. i was looking on bricklink at white 32x32 baseplates but theyre crazy expensive, so i want to ask: what is the most cost effective way to get a roughly 100x100 stud area of white to start building?
  15. Hey guys, For the last few weeks I've been working on something that I have never seen done before. I was inspired by Jkbrickworks kinetic contraptions so I decided to make my own, kinetic, motorized AT-AT Walker. This build has just over 600 parts and took me about 12 hours to build, most of which was in getting the moving mechanism to work :) I have made instructions for it and you can get them here: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/222759462918?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 The instructions and renderings are for my 2nd version (Much better) and the video is of my 1st version, just so you don't get confused but the only changes are some colors :) I hope you like my moc and any feedback would be great! Thanks, MM

    Hoth mini-diorama

    I got an inspiration last weekend, and decided to build a mini diorama of the Hoth rebel trenches on a 16x16 base. Once that was ready, I felt I had more in me. This was the result (the pictures are not that good, unfortunately)

    [MOC] Echo Base

    Hi, I have been displayed my version of the Battle of Hoth at shows in Ireland over the last few years. It's mostly using models from sets, but each time I try to add some new custom details. For the latest incarnation, I've added the medical lab, complete with Luke thawing out...

It set me back €3 in my local discount store. In addition to the medical lab, here is the latest version of the command centre. I've tried to do this a couple of times, but never really felt I captured the atmosphere of the movie. I think there's still room for improvement, but I'm much happier with the latest version, below: Echo Base Command Centre by James Shields, on Flickr Echo Base Command Centre by James Shields, on Flickr Echo Base Command Centre by James Shields, on Flickr This is on display in Athy in Ireland tomorrow.

    [MOC] Snowspeeders

    So for a while I wanted custom Snowspeeders for my Hoth diorama. When I saw Brickdoctor's version, I just couldn't resist having a go. I built the first one for a show we held in Naas, Ireland, basically off Brickdor's LDD file, but with a few mods (mostly for parts I didn't have to hand): T-47 Snowspeeder by James Shields, on Flickr However, for larger Hoth displays, I wanted to have a fleet of them. And as I only have LDD on my desktop computer, which resides in a different room from my LEGO, building from LDD is a pain (as if it wasn't already, given the weird way LDD orders instructions). So I built the extra ones by copying the first. Working this way, it makes sense to get a production line going, so I only have to dismantle once. Snowspeeder Production Line by James Shields, on Flickr Here's the completed snowspeeder squadron, ready to defend Echo Base: Echo Base Defenders by James Shields, on Flickr One handy tip. Brickdoctor recommended red LEGO rubber bands to hold the wings together. I used these for the first one but found them a little too long (it's possible mine had stretched from prior use). I found some "loom bands" in the bottom of a tub of used LEGO, and they were actually perfect for the speeders. They're a little thinner than the LEGO ones, and really stretchy, so easy to pul over the desired parts. Once I had my squadron, what's the first thing I do? Why crash one into the snow, of course, recreating Luke's famous scene with the tow cable... Snowspeeder Down! by James Shields, on Flickr Finally, I'll leave you with my version of the box art of one of my favourite LEGO sets... 45000 Rebel Snowspeeder by James Shields, on Flickr
  21. Here is my Assault on Hoth MOC layout. The idea for this build came after building the Raskolnikov AT-ATs half a year ago. They were standing on display next to other SW sets, but I felt that they deserved more. The intention was to make a Hoth display for the Imperial side instead of an Echo Base, which has been done many times already. After designing the layout in LDD I started building and more ideas came to mind. I decided that I still needed some Rebel influences as otherwise the display would be too dull, so I opted to go for a Trench as seen in Episode V. The entire build is modular so that I can easily transport it. The left and right side are both on 2 48x48 baseplates and are connected via technic pins. The 'snowground' is constructed with 16x16 plates and some smaller ones. Dimensions: Entire build: 96x96 studs (80x80 cm) Snowground: 88x88 studs Partcount: 13000+ Credit: I used a lot of inspiration from existing MOCs/MODs and other things. Credit goes to all these people for their builds:
  22. At a recent local show, I displayed my Battle of Hoth diorama. I had about 5 imperial speeder bikes on the display that came from various sets over the years. Most of them are based on a big trike piece, and all of them lack detail. I've realised that these didn't really benefit the display, and I want something a bit better for the next time. I think one or two really well designed ones will look a lot better than a squadron of mediocre ones. I present the 74-Z speeder bike: 74-Z speeder bike by James Shields, on Flickr Although it wasn't seen in the Empire Strikes Back, there are several semi-canon sources that suggest they were used on Hoth. It's built for detail rather than robustness, and some of the connections are a little sensitive! James
