Hello from France Guys ! I'm Bricks Feeder and it's my third topic on Eurobricks! :) Today, I show you my MOC of the A-Wing using the design seen on the SW Rebels series and based on the Original A-Wing Concept of Mr. McQuarrie. I will make some pictures of my advance in the future but for the moment, I give you some videos (of my YouTube Channel) of my prototype on LDD. This MOC is based on the Jerac's A-Wing but I made a lot of change. For the moment, It's just a prototype on LDD. I tried to build a functional Landing gear. But I have to test the structure in real. I made Three version : Two A-Wing of the Phoenix Squadron (534 Bricks and 523 Bricks) and the A-Wing that Ezra used in the season 3 to go to Tatooine (523 Bricks). Although, These MOC need some stickers for the details. I take all advice if you have! :) You can see my other topics about SW : ITT : [MOC] ITT (Imperial Troop Transport) from SW Rebels TIE Advanced Prototype : [MOC] TIE Advanced Prototype (aka Inquisitor's TIE) from SW Rebels A-Wing (McQuarrie / SW Rebels Design) : [MOC] A-Wing (McQuarrie / SW Rebels Design) Batman's Batmech : [MOC] Batman's Batmech
DarthTwoShedsJackson posted a topic in LEGO Star WarsTaking a few critical looks at my original A-wing MOC, I decided that a few important improvements were in order to get the shapes and proportions right. So I spent a few hours during the past few weeks to revisit the built, and a lot has changed - quite a lot, especially with the internal frame and the way this model is built. The changes were neccessary to accomodate the more correct outer shape, and to retain the sturdiness of the original MOC. Now Ahsoka's ride was finally finished, and after a few intelligence missions into imperial territory and a daring escape, Ahsoka asked Chopper to check her A-wing for imperial transmitters in an abandoned facility from the Clone Wars before returning to Phoenix Squadron. "What have you done, Chopper?! When I told you to take this thing apart to check for transmitters, I meant it figuratively, not literally!" "Badoop, ba ba. Arrrrrh!" "Ach, okay. Now let's check these sub-assemblies, and then help me put this thing back together, understood?" "Woop, woop!" If anyone would like to create an lxf-file - be my guest! Enjoy and have fun!
It's been a while. Recently, when I re-watched REBELS season 2, it occured to me that a) the A-wing has always been my favourite starfighter back in the days of X-wing vs TIE fighter, b) Ahsoka has been my favourite Star Wars character for some years now, and c) in season 2 my favourite Star Wars character is shown to fly my favourite Star Wars starfighter! What better excuse is there to have a go at a MOC of the REBELS-version of the A-wing, and to build it with the livery of the particular ship Ahsoka is flying in the episode which culminates in her kicking two Inquisitor-butts? This little model initially started as a MOD of the A-wing from set 75150, but as I went along, I started to ditch everything regarding the build of the fuselage and built it from scratch. The clever shooting-mechanism of the original model from the set went first in favour of mirroring the upper half of the front section of the fuselage to the bottom half, and including a retractable front landing gear. The goal was the flat and sleek profile from the show while retaining stability and using legal building technigues, as I prefer with all my MOCs. Also, using detailed renders from the finished show concepts, I set out to brick-build the livery as accurately as possible instead of resorting to stickers. In accordance with the final concept renders, I also fixed the rear part of the fuselage, especially closing the gaps between the engines and the fuselage, thereby incorporting the engines partially into the rear fuselage, as with the model from the show. Last but not least, the cockpit-interior has received much needed detail, and even more importantly, has been build with enough headroom and space behind the pilot to allow for the upcoming adult minifig-version of REBELS' Ahsoka to fit into the cockpit. Nothing fancy, but sturdy, sleek, with much less exposed studs and brick-built livery. Here's the finished, improved, completely SNOTted model:
sparkart posted a topic in Watto's JunkyardThis playset is a kind of alternate universe foil to LEGO set 7668 Star Wars Rebel Scout Speeder. The Rebels have little chance of success against three Imperial Shocktroopers and a Supercommando in an armed speeder! The Star Wars Imperial Shocktrooper Speeder by SPARKART!, on Flickr. If you appreciate Dark Horse Comics' The Star Wars, you understand the impetus to create this slightly askew rendition of the familiar Star Wars Stormtroopers. The Shocktrooper minifigures in this set are inspired by concept artist Ralph McQuarrie's early drawings for George Lucas's Star Wars, in particular, this illustration. The Supercommando with the brick-built rocketpack is inspired by the artwork that evolved into Boba Fett. I wanted the rocketpack to resemble the real-life Bell Rocket Belt that would've been familiar to the concept artists in the 1970s, when the nascent Star Wars story and movie was taking shape.
