  1. Hi Folks, some weeks ago I presented my Millennium Falcon Moc here on this page. ...but after a while I wasn't completely satisfied with the endresult, so I broke it down (which wasn't easy) and began a rebuild. The new version is larger and I tried to get the outer proportions more like the original Falcon, same with the the interior layout. Length: 58 cm (75257: 44) Width: 40 cm (32) Hight: 14 (14) Weight: 4,1 kg. First some exterior images:
  2. I like to present you my Lego town Steinbruck. The name is from Stein=brick & bruck(old German)=bridge. This is my current layout: My MOC and MOD buildings (more detail pictures in the albums; just click the pictures to get there): I'm planning a car wash for the Service Station and will build it in the next months. I also build digital, but can't afford all of them to build with bricks. Click to album.
  3. I always like to mess around with existing LEGO sets, especially with set 3177 (a.k.a small car). So I discovered a BMW M4 with a trailer made from another BMW M4 cut in half. I used that idea to make this thing:
  4. For over a year I’ve been modifying set 75930: Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate, and I’ve finally finished it up. I started by completely removing all of the lab parts in the set. I wanted the place to be more accurate to the movie and feel way more like a mansion. Maisie in front of the Agujaceratops skull. The exterior with masonry bricks, a few new windows, a new doorway, and slopes on the roof. While the movie has lion statues, classic baby T. Rex statues take their place here. “Ms. Dearing, you’re early!” Interior overview Lego’s goblets of plants by the entrance were accurately gold, but unfortunately the real pot piece isn’t available in gold as of now. The right and left sides now connect to other rooms on the bottom floor. Sir Benjamin and the Dimetrodon When the chameleon was made in teal was when I barely realized the piece could be used for a Dimetrodon. I wondered if the rubber mohawk piece could be bent into shape and placed on it without glue or such, but in the end I had to cheat by cutting off a bit of it and using some blu-tack to keep the two attached. Iris and the Velociraptor This diorama came first and is what pushed me to get a Dimetrodon for the other diorama somehow. For both it took some effort to use a stick to move and click them in place between the wall and glass panels. Different angles Lounge area, at least one person who lives here has to like tea. Maisie’s room and the Library I debated turning that whole third floor into either Maisie’s room or Mills’ office, but her room had the door and there were enough unique decor ideas that ended up being the telescope, a nightlight, and a green classic T. Rex as a toy. I’m pretty proud of how the center of the middle floor turned out. I used the brown and black furniture to try to cover up as much of the tan wall as possible. The glass vases of plants worked out great. There’s no other piece like that landscape tile so I was very happy that it exists, and it ended up being an unintentionally accurate decoration upon looking at set pictures from the movie’s production designer Andy Nicholson. The ship in a bottle isn't present in the movie but it’s a reference to how there are docks close to the estate. That table is supposed to be the one found in Mill’s office that electronically displayed Isla Nublar and profiles of different dinosaur species. I didn’t think there was any way to represent that, but some friends gave me the idea to use a sticker from the Dilophosaurus outpost set, so that will be something to use eventually. The Indoraptor may be too big, but Blue can somewhat fit through that door and look like she opened it. Mills’ Office Retained that idea of a table and umbrella holder and gave his space a computer with a sticker from 75917: Raptor Rampage. I'll probably replace that map with the one of Isla Nublar printed on it eventually. I used the portraits of Thomas and Martha Wayne from the 1960s Batman set for both hallways. It would’ve been great if they officially had one for John Hammond. The new transparent piece from the DC collectible minifigure series allowed for that ammonite fossil to be displayed accurately. A simple bust build and a drawer with explorer items on top. Just a look at how the hallways now connect the entire bottom floor together. Eli Mills, Sir Benjamin Lockwood, Iris Carroll, and Claire Dearing. Thanks for looking!

  6. The pictures for Harry Potter 2020 were released just yesterday, and I've already figured out how to make a "complete" 4 Privet Drive (set 75968) with a back half of the building (including a greenhouse and kitchen) and different furniture for the front half, just from the pictures released. The car is a dark blue version of the Anglia in 2018's Hogwarts Whomping Willow set (75953). Here is the front of the house. I added a visible chimney flue, as I didn't like how the set kept the one hidden inside the wall. The rear of the building features a greenhouse and back door. The greenhouse folds up and open to get at the inside of it, which at this point holds only a telephone. On the lower floor of the inside is the living room (with record player, couch, and fireplace), kitchen and dining area (stove, sink, table and two chairs). The upper floor features a lamp on a table and a bed. This 1962 Ford Anglia 105E is based off set 75953 (Hogwarts Whomping Willow), but in dark blue. (and no, it does not fly!) The rear trunk opens slightly. Two of this part are missing in dark bluish gray, and four of this part are missing in dark blue to finish the car. My brother was kind and rendered the picture for me in stud.io, as I only use LDD to digitally build. Any thought, comments, complaints or suggestions?
  7. Back in March 620, Prio Sea, North shore of Tortuga... precisely at Dr Thaum's pied-à-terre The young Iauln is up the tower, searching the horizon with his telescope, the trusted Callaghan is manning the grill, and the doctor... PSHHHHHHHH ! PSHHHHHHHOUUUT ! SHHHHHH ! SHHHH ! KLANG ! Dr Thaum : EUREKA ! It works ! Callaghan, my steam engine is working ! The wheel is turning !! YEEEEEHAAAAA ! TJ Johnson : Excuse me doctor, your parcel... Dr Thaum : I don't give a sh... of that parcel Callaghan, you're a bonehead, Callaghan ! TJ Johnson : This is not Callaghan, doctor... Dr Thaum : UH ?! Oh, sorry, TJ, which parcel ? Errr... OK THE parcel ! You've found him ! Well done TJ ! Here I come ! Dr Thaum : Wonderful guys ! Bring the coffin in my pantry... CALLAGHAN ! Show them in ! And then offer them a drink ! XXXXXXXXXXXXX Dr Thaum : Dear professor, you're finally back to me ! TJ Johnson : Allright doctor, can you explain me what's going on ? I terminated about twenty persons for bringing that corpse back. Dr Thaum : Of course Mr Johnson, You've just brought back to me the corpse of my estimated mentor, the professor Oktober Sippio, he teached me most of my knowledge... TJ Johnson : Talk, talk ! Why should I bring it back untouched and eliminate all witnesses, the 2 altonian captains and some of the crews ? Dr Thaum : OK, OK... many years ago, the war between Oleon and Corrington was in full swing, and with this war, its share of destruction, orphans, famine and diseases, notably the leprosy. The lord-chambellan came to the professor Sippio and asked for a terrible disease, ready to take a heavy toll on the Oleonese ranks and he asked for a cure too, for Corrington, of course, for a stated price... Something as terrible as leprosy. I just defended my thesis and became doctor, with my friend Henry, under the direction of the professor Sippio, and all 3 began to work on this scourge. Callaghan : Wait a minute ! You got paid for that !? For a disease ready to rampage the world !? Dr Thaum : You're a bonehead Callaghan ! I get paid for my care ! The death is offered ! Anyway, the research, especially for the cure, needed a vast amount of money the lord-chambellan was hesitating to provide, and there were suddenly changes in the royalty and the lord-chambellan was dismissed for womanizing, but this red leprosy... Callaghan : This leprosy ?? TJ Johnson : Finish your story doctor... Dr Thaum : This leprosy was good and ready. The cure was ready too, but we barely had only half a dozen unit dose, we do not have fully tested. A cleaning up was then initiated in the ex lord-chambellan business, our lab was destroyed, Henry and I escaped with few samples (including some of the cure) and books and the professor was captured as he was burning the last flasks of Red Oktober. Nethertheless, the professor was the only one to have the complete formula of the cure, but just before I vanished with Henri, he had time to say " I will point to the solution". Since then, I have done all that I can but the professor died in jail and his body ended up in a mass grave. After years the mass grave was found and under my instructions and with some money the coffin was loaded in the LaCrosse, a ship hired for the Sea of Thieves sea link. Unfortunately the ship sank near Terraversa, and it took me almost a year to find the sinking localisation. But when the LaCrosse wreckage was found, that was only to realize that 2 altonian ships found the coffin, probably floating on the sea near the wreck, and take it with them to Ulric. This is where you come in, TJ... Callaghan : Why Red Oktober, doctor ? And were are the flasks you runaway with ? I hope destroyed !? Dr Thaum : Red Oktober... because of the red color of the substrate, and destroyed... No. Have a look around you Callaghan Callaghan : Reuuaaargh !!! This is the Red Oktober ? Dr Thaum : Indeed... Callaghan: And the cure samples ? Dr Thaum : Already consummate Callaghan Callaghan : Let me develop a bit... This is the reason why Henri, Barney, Hadvice, Oggy you and I boarded the Leper Messiah and the Leper Crusader ? You and Henry tried your cure ! And it didn't succeed ! We now have 2 doomed ships storming the seas with full crews of infectious demons !! That's an outrage ! You're a fool ! You lost your best friend and even your son ! And you aren't seeking a solution anymore ? Dr Thaum : Shut up Callaghan ! The cure is a success, as you noticed it, Barney, Oggy, Hadvice, you and I are well, right ? and... TJ Johnson : Why did you give your last dose to me ? Dr Thaum : Some flasks were broken in the skirmish as the lab was destroyed and the professor captured, there was a mini leprosy outbreak after this in the city, and the professor died of his own Red Oktober in jail. So the last dose was for you, as you perhaps have to touch the corpse and bring the last sample back. And Callaghan, the solution is here ! That's why I hired TJ for bringing the the coffin back. The cure formula comes with the corpse of Oktober Sippio ! "The professor point to the solution" Callaghan : You administer me the cure ? When ? Why ? and Henry ? and Hadvice ? Dr Thaum : Enough Callaghan ! Enough ! You have a drink to offer ! Callaghan (leaving) : You smutty old fool! Dr Thaum : Look, TJ, for the cure, "the professor point to the solution", look at that right arm and the index finger... TJ Johnson : A false finger ! How did you notice that ? Looks like a true one ! Dr Thaum : Henry and I made this false finger, the professor asked us to amputate him and replace the real one with this prothesis this is an empty one and he probably hid the cure formula inside. That's why I wanted you to bring me the body back or at least the right arm ! Dr Thaum : All our efforts are rewarded ! I now have the cure formula ! This is designated to be the Doctor's residence in Tortuga, should be licenced as a medium one with court approval @Bregir @Capt Wolf @Bodi @Ayrlego (because of being only a MOD of the old fishing store official) I hope you enjoyed the story... all is not revealed, there is lot more to come ! C&C welcome as usual, bonus pics (of all that was MODed later on )
  8. Hello everybody, I didn't notice yet any MOD page of the Volvo EW160 excavator. I find this a really good set and as I'm an excavator lover, I couldn't resist to add a few modifications. I have already done 2- 3 and I have others in my mind. Here are the first ones I took away the cab elevating mechanism. I find the excavator better proportioned this way. It looks a lot more like the real machine and IMHO also a lot nicer. The cab was in the original model too much forward and got in the way of good playability. I still have to get rid of the grey beam behind the cab. I also put a swivel and turning mechanism on the grab, which also looks better and approaches the looks of the real machine. The mods I'm planning is to arrange the hoses on the boom and add rigid hoses.
  9. Hi Folks, my name is Friedie, I'm from Bonn, Germany and this is my first posting here. I was born back in 1967 and I allways was a big Starw Wars Fan. In the last years I followed all that Lego Star Wars Creations on the Internet but never took part in building Lego myself (what I did when I was a child of course). In 2017 I thought of buying the new UCS Set but I was was a bit disapointed, that the Interior was not complete and they used these "Sticker-Hallways". I know, it is not a play-model, but even a Display Model should be "complete"in my oppinion, even more when you consider the high price. But The Falcon allways was my favorite ship, as Han Solo was my favorite charater of the series. so finally I wanted to have a Lego Falcon at home, so I decided to buy me the 75257 Edition. It was fun to build but the outcome is so much different from the original thing. So I first decided to mod it and got me some more parts from bricklink. Corona came leavin me working at home and having much more spare time. I looked up a lot of mods and mocs on the Internet, and I also found this site of course. There are brilliant works (stifos!) that inspired me from the start ofmy building efforts. Finally I finished my work and it evolved from some simple mods to a fullgrown moc of the Millennium Falcon witha detailed interior. First some Numbers: Length: 53 cm (75257: 44) Width: 37cm (32) Hight: 17,5 cm (14) Weight: 3,2 kg (2,1) I don't know the number of parts, cause I just build the thing together, so sadly I don't have instructions or part lists to offer. But here are the first pics I want to show you... The "Corona" Falcons Overall Exterior:
  10. The upcoming 42082 Rough terrain crane has inspired a whole list of possible improvements because I believe that at this scale some cool functions could/should be modeled (in random order): Two stage outriggers, preferably PF controlled Multiple steering modes (minimal 2: 4WS and front wheel steering) Pendular front axle Luffing jib, folding away against the boom Second winch for secondary hook Replace LA’s which lift the boom with an actuator with a longer stroke for bigger range in the boom angle Cosmetic changes to cabin, engine cover and upper structure to resemble real cranes more like Grove or Terex Some of these are probably overly ambitious and I’m not claiming to be able build all these MODs in one single model, but I am curious to see how far I can take this. My first step is to take a look at possible two stage outriggers. So far I’m tinkering in LDD to find mechanisms for the horizontal stage which are rigid enough to support the Crane and compact enough to fit on both ends of the 42082. I think it must be possible to fit the outriggers in a module measuring 5x7x23 studs. The ultimate goal would be to lift the crane from its wheels, but considering the size and weight of the 42082, I would be happy if the outriggers can simply provide actual support. Progress so far:
  11. Inspired by some of the other excellent threads on this forum, I decided to have a go at lengthening my First Order Transporter: I've added an extra 16 studs, twelve of them in the troop compartment: it can now take a total of twenty stormtroopers. I have rebuilt a lot of the details: I have also shortened the cockpit and moved it back. It is accurate in profile and still fits a minifig. Finally, I've lengthened the engines and added some greeblies to the space between them. Sourcing another 16 stormies was fun but expensive: Battle of Takodana + 2 batle packs + 2 Bricklink orders. Special thanks to our very own Lobot for his rapid and friendly Bricklink service. Many thanks also to Vodnik, deskp, Veynom & Solscud007 for their inspiration. If anyone wants to build this mod, I've created a Lego Digital Designer file: (LXF) This file is slightly different to my "real bricks" version, due to Lego Digital Designer being a crotchety old block. Bonus fun - Spot the differences! To build the version in the LXF, you will need a 75103 First Order Transporter and about 470 extra parts: (XLS). Having an extra 75103 on hand (£40 on ebay with no minifigs) cuts that down to 300 parts: (XLS).
  12. Hi all! I've been trying to mod some of my older sets and after watching the new clone wars trailer, it showed a landed ARC 170 with landing gear, which i don't think we've seen anywhere else. It gives us a glimpse of the front landing gear but not the back. I have a simple solution for the front landing gear but the back is much more complicated. I have tried multiple options but none seem to work. This way the model will look nice but there isn't a way for the landing gear to support the heavy weight at the back. Also the landing gear doesn't fit in the middle as there is a gearbox that takes all the space. Does anyone have a solution?

    [MOD] X-Wing 75218

    Update: The finished MOD along with instructions and parts list, all on Rebrickable, with new photos to follow... https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-36569/ron_mcphatty/red-5-x-wing-t-65-set-75218-mod Thanks for your help guys! Original post- My kids bought me the new X-Wing for Christmas, they’re the best! I’ve wanted one in Lego form since I was a kid and hung on to the idea of a new set since I got back into Lego five years ago. Initially I was disappointed with how this set looked due to that ugly lever on top and similarities to Poe’s X-Wing. However, I recently saw a friend’s set and between us we worked out a few easy mods to improve things on a budget. Starting at the front we added a few plates to the nose to combat how flat the top looks, then added dishes and pins to the laser tips, also replacing the blue pins inside the roots with with black pins plus 4L lightsaber bars to reduce wobble. We added landing gear and a couple of modified plates either side of R2 to box him in. Most significantly took part of the S-Fool lever off and added a removable lid with some detail. I was thinking of adding internal gears connecting to a handle at the back but I really like that rear greebling so for now the lid comes off to to open and close the S-Foils. (Edit: I also added the extra cylinder length to the engines, thanks to Richpepperell for the design and Jerac for the suggestion) Bricklinking the extra parts costed about £6 including delivery, the skids for the landing gear weren’t common but cheap enough as used parts. Hope you like it and happy modding in 2019!
  14. My small tricks: Lego UCS Millennium Falcon engine vents rotate align modify without increase height (clone band). Blue plane: Oxford band brick, Korean air home made stickers + engine support MOD. Hope you like it

  16. Hello everyone, I have recently picked up a 42054. Immediately I noticed the insane amount of backlash and resistance in the steering system. Here's how I fixed it: 1: Finding the problem: The problem was one of these: It was adding lots of friction which caused the grand majority of the backlash. It is added in this step (step 57 substep 2): 2. Replacing the piece. This was relatively simple, I replaced it with one of these: I had to hold the other piece in before placing it into the assembly, but it was totally worth it. There is little to no backlash and resistance. So, that's it! Thanks for reading! BrickbyBrickTechnic
  17. Hello everyone, as i didn't see any Mods topic for this set, i decided to start it myself, and to start, i would like to share with you the LDD file for the official set (not sure if there was one already), there are some parts missing and some pieces are not fully connected (could i have used developer mode to solve this? yes, but for some reason i decided just to place apart the pieces i couldn't fit in), here is the model: Missing parts: -x4 24118 Panels in Dark Purple (Brick-built and grouped in the model) -x11 6167281 (I didn't add any substitute) -x1 6187734 (The rope) LDD file:http://bricksafe.com/files/imanol/42069/42069.lxf And next is my modifications for this set so far, the first thing that i wanted to do was to put wheels and tires, and because this is an snow-themed set, i decided to put tumbler tires, and i knew that these tires didn't look good in those very wide axles, with these tires the vehicle would look silly, but after narrowing the axle a little bit, i think it is looking like an authentic snow expedition vehicle (it even looks like an JLTV from the sides), i also changed some colors, but is just a test (the model is still WIP): The goal is XL-Motor for drive, Servo Motor for steering and M or L-Motor for the winch (and possibly some lights): I hope you like it, i will try to make more improvements, and i am looking forward to see more modifications by any other member, have happy modding.
  18. Since I started LEGO Star Wars in 2015, I wanted to own a Tantive IV. The sets from 2001 and 2009 were far too expensive on the secondary market. That's why I was really happy when a new version was announced. There was a lot of discussion about the set. Everyone had a different expectation. I am glad that it has become an improved version of the 10198. Nevertheless, there were a few things that bother me. The biggest criticism for me is the cockpit. I do not like stickers. In a few years they will take off and then the model looks bad. That's why I built it with bricks. The role model was the @Kit Bricksto UCS Tantive - CR-90 Corvette. More improvements: - Removed the stud shooters!!! - Removed the handle - Colour matching - Facing the bottom with inverted bows - Extension gun turrent on the botton - Radar turett mirrored down - Brickbuilt upper wings between conference section und radar tower My next goal is to change the inside of the cockpit, because at the moment, Captain Antilles can’t sit inside. Maybe you have more ideas for improvements. Then like to post here. Here are the pictures.

    [MOD] Resistance Jaguar i-Pace

    The recently released Jaguar i-Pace really looks like that rare vehicle seen in that rare town, a long time ago… ;-) Yeah, there’s plenty of room at the back of this i-Pace ! Bonus - My version of the Audi
  20. according to the 8110 modification collectors thread we should do the same with the 42009 mobile crane Mk2. and i start with some small modifications on the undercarriage. my first modification adds steering functionality to the flashing lights the second change is widen the body to the width of the stabilizers and chassis comments, critics and your own modifications are welcome.
  21. I got 71044 set for myself and it looks great. However I felt like train station was half finished. Yes, it is build for play-ability, but looked half finished. Since I was never going to play with it and didn't really like all the Disney logos and associations next best thing I could think of was to modify it. First thing the station was missing is, obviously, the back side. My idea was to use the actual train station which is located one of Disney parks, to build the missing back, but strip it from any Disney logos. Most of the build is quite easy since it replicates the portions of the existing set. However getting around to build those windows at the bottom floor was a bit tricky. Last thing original set was lacking is a platform. There's nothing fancy here as it is built on top of two baseplates. These can be separated though, as well as the train station. This makes entire model to be easy to move in three pieces. This is my first train station. So I would be glad to hear reasonable suggestions how could I improve it or its surroundings.

    [MOD] Poe’s X-Wing 75273

    Here’s my attempt at modifying Poe Dameron’s X-Wing from The Rise of Skywalker! I think Lego did a great job with this latest X-Wing, I really like the refined wing mechanism and orange/white patterns and I love the new engines, but when viewed from above or the side that boxy nose is no good and the barely offset wings obviously need sorting out. I also put together some instructions, more on them later... https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-35800/ron_mcphatty/mod-poe-damerons-x-wing-t-70-set-75273-mod/#info Rather than adding the same removable lid from my last X-Wing mod I instead built a hinged hatch, it’s a much simpler mod to build in and to use too. I took that landing axle out when first building the set but if you like that play feature then the wing mechanism still works with it left in. The main modifications are the rebuilt wings, I stripped them back to the engine structure and attempted to make them close in a 100% movie-accurate way. That didn’t pan out so well, the connection of the lower wing to the body was always too weak, so I settled for them overlapping by one plate to balance strength, limit the number of extra pieces and also to keep those blue accents in. I also tried modding the sides of nose, adding a line of tiles on modified bricks to bring the width out a bit. I added some extra plates on top too, hopefully giving the impression of the gentle slope towards the nose. I built in some very simple landing gear and details to the end of the lasers, and that’s it! Overall I used more pieces than I’d’ve liked, about 80, but they’re all common parts and the cost is fairly low at about £5. I’m really enjoying using Stud.io, even the instructions feature. Clear mod instructions are much harder than from-scratch instructions, this time I’ve tried to incorporate references to steps in the original instructions for clarity and completeness. I’m hoping the familiar chunks will help you easily see where my mods start and finish so that stripping back the original set is an easy job. https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-35800/ron_mcphatty/mod-poe-damerons-x-wing-t-70-set-75273-mod/#info I’m always happy to get criticism and suggestions and very grateful if you point out any mistakes in the instructions! I plan to do instructions for my old 75218 X-Wing mod next and then, taking inspiration from @LEGODrongo01’s recent 75213 recolour, apply these mods and new engines to Poe’s old black X-Wing! My old set might need a good dust first, I can hardly believe that came out five years ago now. I hope you guys like the mods, and just for fun here’s Poe and a micro X-Wing :D
  23. This was just a quick weekend project. I am fond of the 42037 set, as it was one the sets that got me interested in Technic. So, I decided to try to do it some justice, and I motorized it, first with an L-motor, which wasn't great, then with an XL-motor, which was about the same, then with 2 L-motors, which was the best. Then, I got a buggy motor. And since I had just taken apart a failed battlebot, and the buggy motor was lying there, begging to be used, I decided to use it. I rebuilt my 42037 Formula Off-Roader, with a few changes, which are as follows: 1. Changed the colors from light bley/med blue/lime/black to black/white/lime. 2. Removed the inline-4 fake engine. 3. Added full motorization, buggy motor for drive, servo for steering, AA battery box with a V2 receiver. 4. Bodywork changed a bit to fit the new colors and cover the gap left from removing the fake engine. And a light bar was added, because I didn't like the round spotlights. 5. Very minor, but I changed the rear shocks attachment point on the rear suspension arms, they were moved out one more stud than shown in the instructions, in order to have better travel and not be under compression, which was an issue in the original model. If anyone is interested, here is the LDD file instructions! Anyway, I know you're all tired of my rambling, so, with out further ado, I present to you the 42037 Ultimate Racing Buggy! 42037 F 42037 FQR It has easy access to the battery box, both to replace it and to turn it on and off. 42037 FQL The suspension is great, one of the best parts of the original set, which I kept and slightly improved. 42037 Mod 42037 FQR-s The source of power and speed! The almighty BUGGY MOTOR! 42037 Rear The required photo of the underside. The wheelbase and chassis are the same dimensions as the original set, though the buggy motor hangs out the back by a couple studs. 42037 Chassis I hope to make a video soon, but it started raining after I took photos, so maybe in a few days. But finals are coming up, so it may take some time. I will also add some cutaway photos soon, for anyone who wants to replicate my mod. Or, use the LDD file instructions. Thanks for looking at this, please give C&C, ask questions. More on my Flickr. - Leonardo da Bricki
  24. Hi all, be kind, this is the first time I've actually started a topic here, and shared pics of my lego fumblings. I've been away from lego for 20 years, and then my GF bought me the lego millenium falcon for christmas, and it's totally rekindled my love (for Lego, not the GF, I loved her already...). Like many, I found the S-foils on the most recent T-70 X-wings rather underwhelming. The X-wings in the movie look so cool, aggressive, dynamic, and the new engine pods and the way the wings fold to become one single plane in cruise mode is very slick indeed. The Lego version is significantly less slick in this regard, and this bothered me. As is well documented, the wings don't even meet, let alone combine into one, the lower wing is studs down, which means the ugly plate underside is on show, and the dreaded blue rubber bands, both look out of place at the back of the engine pods, and pull the wings at an angle. I will say that I like the folding mechanism as a play function, and did not want to loose it. So first off, the closed position: When they're closed, there is no gap, no angle difference, and to all intents and purposes, it appears as though it's one single wing, just as it should. And now, open Again, no angle change due to rubber band tension. The bands are still being used, but I found a way to integrate them such that they pull the wings closed as they should, but not unevenly, and within the forward profile of the wings so that they're not obvious. In fact they now look like some kind of power cables on the engine undesides. Here's some close ups: I'll go into more detail on this tomorrow if anyone's interested, but essentially the now studs up lower wings have some 2x1 modified plates with pin loops with pins going into 1x1 technic bricks as the method of attaching them, with one of the pins sticking out for the bands to locate on. The bands then go around the back of another pin that replaced a cream coloured short pin on the body of the ship, then go up inside the upper wing engine where there's one of thes guys for them to hook on to: It has as much tension as the original system, but looks alot slicker, though i will admit it is a bit trickier to put together. the bands also seem to hold the lower wing onto the engine a bit too, which is nice. The rear landing gear is rubbish on the original, and i wanted something that would retract cleanly. The real ship has landing gear that emerges from the slopes between the curved engine and the wing. This seemed impossible to duplicate at this scale, and with the stuff for the new folding mechanism, so did landing gear on the engines too, so i mounted it to the body, at its widest part. It folds up and becomes part of the body curve at the back, which is nice. I apologise for the crappy lighting, again, I'll get better pics if there's interest. I may swap the grey part for black, but I don't have any at the moment. Elsewhere on the ship, I moved the cockpit back one stud, and started playing around reprofiling the nose a little. This is the next area for my attention and is a work in progress. Please feel free to comment, I'm open for any constructive criticism!
  25. As already shown in a preview in my Hogwarts Express Carriages thread, I have completed my rendition of the "Olton Hall" steam locomotive, famous for pulling the Hogwarts Express in the fictional wizarding world of Harry Potter. Here she is in close-up: [ Hogwarts Express by Phil B, on Flickr This is a model that started as a Mod of 75955, but has progressed far enough from the original set that you can call it a MOC I think. Here is a list of all modifications I made: Lengthened the entire boiler by 6 studs and placed the middle section under a one-plate angle to better capture the shape of the real Hall Class. Widened the engine to 7 studs (almost 10 across the pistons and driverods). This allowed me to accurately model the forward facing windows in the cab, and allowed me to create openings for the wheel flanges to accommodate a larger wheel size, Upgraded the wheels to Big Ben XL Drivers and Big Ben Medium pilot truck wheels - I like how they have true spokes vs the printed spokes on LEGO's regular train wheels. The model works with standard LEGO Large and regular train wheels as well. Extended the pipes from the side to around the nose of the boiler. Redesigned the front buffer beam. Gone is the "lock" from the original model, but it features the same details as the real-life Olton Hall. With the change to 7 wide I widened the cab, but kept the original firebox and gauges from 75955, which was quite an "offset" challenge to do. Completely redesigned the tender to house a LiIon LEGO battery box and a Power Functions IR Receiver, though the model can work with PFxBricks as well. The tender is 6 wide, with one pivoting axle and a fixed PF train motor. On the pictures she is pulling my consist of 5 BR Mk I coaches - 2 First Class, 2 Second Class and a combined First Class/Baggage/Brake coach. Each carriage has a fully detailed interior and is 7 wide. Progress on these carriages has been documented in my Hogwarts Express Carriages thread. Here are the picture and drawing I used for inspiration: More pictures of the engine: The full consist: And the coach interiors:
