  1. See replies in this thread for NEW models Hello again everyone This week I present the Shadow Caster a Lancer-class pursuit craft - the ship of Bounty Hunter Ketsu Onyo from the excellent (well last 3 series anyway) Star Wars Rebels animated series. I was ill a while back and my attention span at the time was only an hour or so so watching a few Rebels episodes at a time fit nicely. It made me realise that there were a lot of vehicles from the animated series, not just Rebels, that I have not built or could update form my old collection so this is the first of many from this genre so keep an eye open. This is not a very tricky build, The difficult part was getting the colour scheme right whilst not making the model too thick. The new maccaroni tile pieces and 6x3 semi circle plates certainly helped with that once I realised that they existed. I tend to find out about new parts now when my son gets a new set! I think i have the overall shape and dimensions just about right. I am surpised an official minifig scale set of this was not made. As this was not the case I have also had to build a Ketsu Onyo minifig from official parts for the display. This is not my speciality so if anyone can think of better minifigure parts let me know. Anyway, enough waffle, here is the model. Let me know what you think. Jon

    [MOC] Harrower Class Dreadnought

    I don't have any experience with the games, but I saw a picture of the Harrower and was inspired. Aesthetically, I love the aggressive shape of the ship. The engine design is quite different from typical ISD style designs and I really like how the ship is absolutely covered with quad laser and quad turbo emplacements. Strategically speaking, this ship makes a lot more sense than "newer" Republic or Imperial style destroyer designs. A few retro improvements (in my opinion at least): - Command bridge is less exposed compared to Acclamator, Venator, Imperator - Engines are recessed and less exposed compared to Acclamator and Venator -Quad laser turrets are placed on the top and bottom sides of the hull which provides better coverage than if placed in the trenches. -The front and side hangar entrances are recessed which would give ingress and egress of fighters more protection Time will tell if I make this IRL. Either way, it was a fun little build. More views in the spoiler. Reference Image:
  3. This transformer robot's name is White Astronaut. Because the robot mode looks like astronaut. :) This mini robot is a triple changer transformer. It could change into a fighter jet and a monster.

  5. Hello there! Even though TLC finally stepped out of using big blocky engines, the newest rendition of fake engines isn't very good. Mostly due to the ugly long brown axles and big "crankshaft". Now, it is possible to use the ovaloid-shaped liftarms as the crankshaft with 2l axles and half-bushes, but the entire assembly still occupies a lot of vertical space, specially the Ø3L crankshaft. Now, making something smaller with Technic pieces wasn't possible, so I resorted to System parts. 1x1 plates with 1x1 round plates were the solution looked for. Even though the "pistons" don't have much vertical movement, the engine still sounds great and both inline and v-shape setups can be made, theorically with infinite cylinders as the crankshaft isn't limited by maximum Technic axle length but by how many 1x1 plates can be stacked together. Advantages: Small volume - 3 studs vertical by 2 studs width Little extra space required - approximately quarter of a stud around the crankshaft (Technic axles can be placed alongside it) Produces sound as well as other fake engines V-shape or Inline engines possible Disadvantages: small vertical piston travel Crankshaft doesn't use Technic pieces so can be difficult to correctly space (stacked plates height vs Technic stud width) and might break if too long or abused too much Here's a video showing both setups and sound (e-motor is very quiet so the engine can be heard)
  6. Having finally set free the buggy motors from TC16, it was time for something speedy again. Having seen the new 2019 transporter, that scale got me again, so making a car "compatible" with that set was very interesting. And having 8649 box on display made it clear which one I wanted 2 make. After a day of non-stop building this abomination somewhat resembling the original was born: The build was based off this year's Corvette wheelbase - 20x15 studs. 8649 has oversized wheels, giving it a cartoony apperance, but that wouldn't work for this one as space in the rear was required for a double buggy motor setup. Low profile tires in combination with old rims were a perfect tuner combo and gave resemblance to the 68.8 six spoke wheels. This also allowed to place the rear wheels much closer to the buggy motors using a non-standard 36z - 16z gears combo (1:2.25) with half-stud on-axis offset [see picture below] powered through the slower, outermost motor output to an approximate 2000rpm to the rear wheels. This gear combination resulted quite reliable when braced properly and withstanded all crashes, slides and racing that was thrown at it. In contrast, the front axle is a real mess. Having to place the m-motor right after the BuWizz made it really weak, and the flex axles make it hinge forwards. It does stay in place though due to all the bracing, so good enough? Also low-pros are amazing for drifting, which makes this vehicle very enjoyable to play with . Bodywork-wise it is NOT a "modern beauty" but carries the approximate lines of the original model. All the interior details are present - double NOS bottles in the rear, Red bucket seats and a tuner steering wheel (RHD version for some JDM powah ). Supercharger was a no for me - it looked terrible on the original. Big a$$ exhausts were kept to annoy the neighbours In the end it is not fully compatible as it probably wouldn't be able to drive up the ramps, but does drive cool. Welp, here's the video and LDD file https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-26855/syclone/mini-rc-nitro-menace-8649/ Best Regards, Dan. Cya later!!!

    Golden Ninja Issue

    So I was messing around with 70503 The Golden Dragon (the old/first set). And I notice the arm joints at the shoulders were stiff on Lloyd (The Golden Ninja). As I was trying to loosen the joints I thought just taken arms out would help. That is when I broke the arms off. Now I am wondering has this happen to anyone else? Is the plastic just poor in the first place? Then after messing with the torso A little more I was able to get the "rest of the arms" out. And now I am wondering if putting in some "green arms" in the torso would look alright.
  8. Hello again everyone Following on from my Snowspeeder post a few weeks back I realised I had neglected to build the Rebel Transport from Empire Strikes Back. So I decided to rectify that. There are no really tricky elements to this build. It does switch from 2 to 3 studs at the bottom using the new 2x3 jumper plates. This then allows the 5-stud wide main body to get the shape at the front. It is not as round at the front as it should be but you can’t always do everything in this scale and you have to approximate. It also uses the old finger hinge plates to attach the side “panels”. It would have needed a 1 plate high gap between the clip/hinge and the main body to use clips or the clicky hinges so sometimes old is better! Hope you like it Jon
  9. My second MOC :) Nano transformer from human type to crab robot
  10. Hello again everyone This time I present my last (I can’t think of anything else to build?) model from Solo – Han’s Landspeeder. Han Solo acquired his overpowered Mobquet M-68 Landspeeder under circumstances he doesn’t care to explain. 😉 The M-68 is a favorite of Corellian speeder enthusiasts, as its repulsorlift generator is easily modified and overcharged. This was quite a tricky little build to keep the overall shape and sleekness in this scale. It is supposed to resemble a sports car after all. The first problem I came across was the windshield. 1x1 clear cheese slopes looked too small and the 1x2 panel was just too upright and looked terrible. In the end I managed to use some slopes which have been turned on their ends. They are attached using bricks with a stud on the side and a tile on the studs of the slopes. Luckily it fits perfectly in the space for them. Another part was the “spoiler” at the back. Luckily those new 1x1 brackets came in dark blue! Then the engines. I went through a few different versions before finally using this: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=11458&C=63#T=C&C=63 These pieces are then attached using 2 headlight bricks in the main body of the model and then attaching another 2 to these to be able to attach the above piece. Anyway, I think this model looks pretty good if I do say so myself, nice and sleek! Hope you like it. Jon
  11. Hi again everyone This time I present one more model from Rogue One – the Eta-Class Supply Barge. This “super tanker” can be seen entering Scarif through the shield gate. It is the big brother/sister of the Zeta-Class Cargo shuttle: I also cannot recall seeing any other MOC’s of this monster. This was quite a simple build – it is mostly a flat-bed after all – but the pieces that inspired me was the new 1x2 wedges for the prongs at the front. The only other “tricky” part was making the 8 wings so that they were sloped but not too sloped. I eventually settled on door rail plates at the bottom of each wing to give an illusion of a slope. It is a bit bigger than I would normally like to build but with the front having to be 4 studs wide (difficult to make it 3) it dictated the overall length of the model. My photography is not very good but the orange containers contrasted against the dark-bluish gray is quite striking. Let me know what you think and there will be more MINI madness soon Jon
  12. Hi again everyone The Imperial Arrestor Cruiser first appeared in the Star Wars canon in the 2018 film Solo: A Star Wars Story, barely visible in an Imperial recruitment film. However, in the script for Solo, the Millennium Falcon was at one point to be captured by a tractor beam ship, which was developed into the Arrestor Cruiser. However, this full appearance in the film was eventually cut but can be seen in a deleted scene where Han crashes his Tie Fighter. A scene I wish they had kept in. Colin Cantwell originally pitched the design of what would become the Imperial Arrestor Cruiser directly to George Lucas, for use in the 1977 movie Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, although it was ultimately discarded in favor of the Star Destroyer. I built this model fairly quickly, again in between finishing other models. It is a fairly simple design with the only complicated part the “nose”. It needed to be slightly tapered and bricks would just not cut it. I have attached this using clip tiles and handle plates to attach the side tiles. I have also then used door rail plates to close the gap at the front. Anyway, here is the model. Jon
  13. Hello again everyone This time I present a MOD rather than a full MOC – a mod of the 30498 AT-Hauler polybag which I tinkered with over the Christmas break. I quite liked the overall design and construction of this but there were a few things that I felt needed changing: · Changed it from white to grey. Think grey is better fitting for a cargo vessel and for most vessels in Star Wars. · Added the gantry underneath. A simple addition with 4 extra parts which I am surprised were not included in the original. · Beefed up the lifting arms as they looked too thin. · The big one – the cockpit. This is what made me want to MOD the polybag in the first place. The use of the slope in the polybag is a bit lazy so I have built this using bricks with studs on the side and wedge plates. · And like all my other models a display stand with Rio Durant minifig. More new and original stuff soon. Jon
  14. HI again everyone The final bricklink order I needed has arrived and as hinted at in the Profundity topic here is the Raddus from The Last Jedi. I actually started building this before the Profundity but with all the tinkering and rebuilds it has taken longer. As with most of my builds a certain piece defines the build and it is then built form there. For the Raddus it was the wedge for the nose (as discussed in the Profundity topic). The piece does not come in light bluish or dark bluish grey, so I have used flat silver. It works fine so no major problem. From the front I have used wedges and slopes to create the main section of the hull with the main section being 4 studs wide tapering back to 2 studs wide before the engine section using the 10x1 curved slopes. These slopes have been attached using headlight bricks through the middle of the model so the model is not wider than the wedge at the front. I have also managed to build the engine cluster at the back and have used 1x1 trans-blue plates for the hangar on either side near the front. The model flows quite nicely from front to back but as with most Mon Calamari vessels it is very difficult to get the curved shape completely right with LEGO, especially in such a small scale. I am not 100% happy with this model but I think I have got most of the details in and I am not sure what else I could change without losing the overall feel. Compromises have to be made in this scale after all. I also think the Vice Admiral Holdo figure looks cool next to the finished model. Let me know what you think and Merry Christmas to all! Jon
  15. Hi again everyone This time I present a model I have tinkered with a lot - Admiral Raddus' flagship from Rogue One the Profundity. This is another example IMO of a nice ship design from the Disney era being used only once then blown to bits! The build itself has a few transitions from 2 bricks wide at the front to 3 bricks and then back to 2 on the tail to attache the nose section and to get the sleak shape which tapers to the tail. I also tinkered an awful lot with the nose section to get the hangar in. I must have built this section 4 or 5 times but finally settled with using the door rail pieces to mimic the hole as this meant that the nose would not get too thick throwing out the whole shape and feel of the model like some of the other attempts I made. I also attached the engines using clip tiles so the tail would not get too thick. Now to finish building the ship named after the commander of this one.......... Anyway let me know what you think. Jon
  16. Ski Speeder Post 1 Hello again everyone This time I am going back to The Last Jedi with this new little model. I present The V-4X-D ski speeder, also known as the Resistance ski speeder seen in the Battle Of Krait. I have tinkered around with this little model for a while. You would think it would be quite an easy build but to get the dimensions etc "correct" took a couple of tricks. The cockpit has been built using bricks with studs in the side and is attached to the main body using 1x1 clip tiles. The gun on the other side has had to be attached using hinge plates to get a piece that is 5 studs long otherwise the wings become too thick. My favourite part of this little model is the rear section and the rudder. The steering wheel with the T-bar and 2 clip plates attached do the job perfectly I think. In fact this was the first part I built and the rest of the model and scale was determined by this section. Anyway let me know what you think. Jon and on display Planets style with Rose:

    [MOC] Miniature Steam Machines

    Hi everyone This is the first time I've posted a MOC in the train forum and although these models are not trains, they are still locomotives of a sort and I thought this would appeal to train and especially steam fans. "Miniature Steam Machines" is my collection of 3 steam engines designed at a small scale. I set myself a challenge to see if I could build these little engines using a very limited amount of bricks but still maintaining a decent level of detail. They are all very small. The biggest of the 3 models only contains 128 bricks. Traction Engine The Traction Engine is the smallest of the 3 models and only uses 82 bricks. The basic structure of this model forms the basis for all three models and this one in particular is intended to represent a miniature version of my LEGO IDEAS project, The Old Workhorse - Traction Engine. Steam Roller The second model is a steam roller and this one is made from 109 bricks. Showman's Engine The third model is a Showman's Engine. This model is the biggest of the 3 and contains 128 bricks. I designed these mini models to act as a sort of side project and to help promote my LEGO IDEAS model called "The Old Workhorse - Traction Engine". This a much bigger and more detailed model. Here is a picture showing the mini models alongside the Old Workhorse. If you're interested in reading more about The Old Workhorse then it has its own topic here on Eurobricks. The Old Workhorse - Traction Engine If you like the model I'd also be massively grateful if you could please vote for it over on LEGO IDEAS at the following link. https://lego.build/2vRfVGL Many thanks for reading and I hope you like these models.
  18. Hey! I have to say that this is my first lego supercar, as i'm more used to trial trucks and trophy trucks. I worked on this one for about three months and the goal was to get a supercar over 1kg, wich I barely passed. First, some overall pictures of the car. Yea, I know, i've got some pretty bad panel gaps around the rear wheels and the whole back of the car isn't too great but it actually was built for the functions. Moving on to the manual functions the car has: Opening hood revealing the RTC system (locking) Opening butterfly doors Opening engine bay cover (locking) +the whole rear lifting in 2 sections to provide access to the BuWizz (large one is also locking) One huge challenge was to get a curved roof at such a small scale, wich you can see in more detail here: It's also fully suspended, front is independent with MacPherson and rear is pendular. I guess I could've squeezed something independent in the rear too but it was too little space and I was running out of time. Functions powered by BuWizz (wich is located behind the rear axle) Drive with an L motor, working V8 engine Steering with an M motor, working steering wheel Linear 2-speed gearbox integrated in the chassis powered by an M motor Here's a little game: Try to find all the motors in the car. Also, I would like to know what do you think about it.
  19. Good Day! So I was really bored this friday, and wondered how small a buggy motor powered car can be, just for pure interest. As it turns out, 2 buggy motors don't occupy that much space XD. So here it is, mini-size car powered by two beasts, Azimus! Needless to say, it's crazy fun! Design was inspired by Lexus concept vehicle from Minority Report, and Deora II from HotWheels. Albeit it was mainly made that way to accomodate the BuWizz as low as possible and turned out different from both. Pics on G-Drive and Brickshelf whenever it approves. Video&photos below (click to enlarge) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCORMtsr1JY Have a Nice Day!
  20. Building Lego Technic creations and posting videos is a common bussiness for every MOC designer. Coming up with small and large inventions and sharing them is a continuing activity that never bores. However, there is one common dream, one ultimate goal that every Lego enthousiast silently dreams about: to design a professional Lego model. Several builders do what is called 'commissioned work'. Building a Lego Technic model and selling whatever it became to a company or private party. In general, Lego Technic custom models are loved by non-Lego enthousiasts because 'it works'. Several years ago, I got the unique chance to do commissioned work because a company CEO's brother accidentially saw my scale model. I first refused to sell my beloved Luctor, but two years later the one metre model was ready I got positive reviews about the looks, but the most comments were: "wow, it really works". Somehow this model must have been leaked inside 'CEO-land', as one year ago I was asked by the Hoeflon company (based in the Netherlands) to build a give-away Lego Technic model, to be used as a business gift. How cool is it to not receive the 32st boring USB drive, but a complete custom Lego Technic model.. The company builds mini cranes that go inside buildings to do heavy lifting. My task was to build a scale model of a machine that is already very compact in real life. As a result, I present a 1:14 scale model of the Hoeflon C6 crane. (please note I'm NOT paid by Hoeflon in any way, the whole story is just about how things happened and to explain the link with reality). The crane is my smallest MOC for a long time. It was really a challenge to fit all the functions inside the cramped body. The functions are: Track widening Boom rising/lowering Boom extension Fly Jib Rotating superstructure Friction winch Self-locking outtriggers Variable angle outtriggers with over 90 degree range These functions happen in a Lego Technic model of a smaller volume than the 9391 Technic crane set. Over the years I had lost some creativity to build small models so this one was a real challenge. I'm happy with the current setup but who knows.. The model is delivered with black or LBG tracks. LBG track links are slightly more expensive and this quickly adds up when 100+ cranes need to be made. To be fair, I find the looks of the 9391 stunning for the low part count. However, as I show in the video, it does not really work as a crane. The above photo shows the comparable sizes of both models. The front view. Please note the relative widht of the tracks: They are each 3L while the vehicle width is 7L. The resulting chassis is one stud in width! To widen the tracks, the crane has a shifting axle system with half bushes as stoppers. The final result is not the strongest system, but the crane at least has the function! The top view shows why this crane is called the 'Spider Crane': the outtriggers can be seen as the legs. The great thing about building such small models is that every part can be seen and every part has its function. There are very few 'unused studs'. This crane has a 3-section boom. In transport shape, this crane is 12 cm high so all of it should be folded. Therefore it looks like a proper mess when folded in. It is a common known fact that Hoeflon cranes will lift their own weight, because one crane should be able to lift another crane into a cellar. Hopes were low for the scale model as it is fully made from plastic Lego pieces. Under these loads, they will simply bend. Using the correct crane position and the winch, I got one crane to lift the other - just. On this small scale, I could not use the same strong structure from the real C6, so it was a nice result that my building resulted in something with the same strenght. The crane in full extended mode. The shape changes dramatically when the boom is unfolded. It reaches a maximum height of 42 cm. This model is meant as a business gift. This box was developed by a third party and it looks great. It is just big enough to contain the 425 parts and the A5-sized building instructions. I spent really hours drawing a 3D model and creating building instructions with lPub. By doing it yourselves, it becomes clear how much time goes into it.. The agreement with Hoeflon was: me delivering the PDF, Hoeflon doing the printing. I'm really pleased with the end result. To conclude, this MOC shows that you don't need a lot of parts to build a fun Technic model. I have many parts now compared to five years ago, but all of it is useless when someone knocks on the door to ask for a small scale model. This model also shows the problem of modern Technic sets from the store shelves. They are built large, very large. The 8265 Wheel loader is an example. It is enormous, while having less functions than this small crane that will fit into its bucket. Now the size may speak to the inner desire of the (hu)man to posess big things, but personally I like finesse and elegance over size. It is my big hope that TLG sees this in time, otherwise the awesomeness of new Lego Technic sets will fade away. The video
  21. Hello out there, it's amazing how time flies, I'll admit I'm not a super moccer, I was when I was younger, before there was such a thing as "mocs" ;) ha anyway, I'm still dabbling here and there and wanted to share another small moc I made. This is celebration of the 60th anniversary and of classic space which I loved then and still do and wish Lego would re-boot it. This is my mini take on LL918, which I had back in the day. I designed with LDD and just finally got around to getting pieces for it. Even Benny approves of this Spaceship! Spaceship! Spaceship! Some more photos available in my Flickr Gallery Thanks for checking it out and hope you enjoy it. It was a small fun little build. I took a bit of liberties adding the flames for a bit of a fun affect. I like how the wheel turned out for the engine and the light saber handles for the landing gear.
  22. Hello everybody, a long time ago I was lucky enough to have my Millennium Falcon kindly blogged on these pages... Today I would like to present you my latest little model, a Mini Scale version of Sleeping Beauty Castle from Disneyland Paris. If you enjoy this build, you can find more pictures on my MOC-page. http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/433830 I am giving a shot on Lego(R) Ideas, so, if you like it, please support it: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/156528 Many thanks for watching, keep building, keep dreaming!
  23. Hi again everyone To celebrate the recent release of Solo (i must admit I have not seen it yet) I decided to build a Millennium Falcon in its honour. I decided to base it on the MINI model which came with the Lego Star Wars magazine: But in true Lando fashion I decided to pimp his ride back to the state it was in before Han got his grubby mits on her. The original model is a nice size for a mini with the saucer section six studs wide. 8 studs and you start getting a much larger model. I have changed it to white with blue, changed the radar dish to be flat, changed the gun and added the cargo pod at the front as well as a few other changes which add a bit more shape to the back section. and as usual on display with Lando planets styling and profiling: Let me know what you think.
