[MOD] MTT: MULTI troop transport 75058
duboismerci posted a topic in LEGO Star WarsBehold the trade federation MULTI troop transport. this beast can carry 16 battle droids. A core element of the trade federation army, it defeated the mighty silly gungan army led in part by the always capable Jar Jar Binks. It seems they had won the day on Naboo for Dart Sidious and the greedy Viceroy Nut Gunray until they were regulated by a 8 year old boy flying a magnificent yellow starfighter. (I do love the Naboo starfighter) Still it will be remembered as the ship who nearly rid the galaxy of Jar Jar (no small feat) I decided to make this MOD (my first one) after reading multiple reviews (and the forums) complaining about the "only 6 droids" problem. These review made me hesitated before buying this set but I finally did buy it because I needed a MTT for my Trade Federation army and also for the minifigs. (ep 1 Obi wan & Qui Gon) Turns out it was a good decision because I love this set. It's movie accurate (look) and full of cool features, like the STAP that fits in the back and the repair droid. So, in a certain way, I made this to help people who were hesitating like me to make up their mind by tackling the major flaw that was the poor droid capacity. So here it is: the 75058 MTT with a 16 droid capacity No structural change were made. I only took out some pieces of the inside so the rack would fit in. It is easy to make http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=6154414 http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=6150890 Both "level" are removable (they slide like the original rack) http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=6150888 Maybe a big flaw, but the doors don't close more then that. (I don't remember if the unmoded version door close more. Probably) http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=6154415 2nd version of the rack. Now the door closes better! http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=6155270 http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=6155271 16 guns fit in the back. It's not pretty but it works. http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=6154416 More pictures on my Brickself http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=547620 Comments are welcome! Edit: The picture were bigger then 800x600 so I removed the deeplink. I don't know how to lower the resolution sorry. Edit 2: Added pictures of an alternate rack. Now the door closes better.
