  1. Hey there - don't post much but the new xwing windscreen being available in trans-yellow inspired me to update one of my MOCs that I was never quite satisfied with until now. Backstory: In order to combat the increased incursions from the Blacktron forces and protect against their raids on commerce lanes, the Legoland Space Forces commissioned the development of a new scout and patrol craft. A decided departure from earlier, lightly armed, exploration craft, the LL919 is a high-endurance, single seat combat vessel designed to fill commerce escort, interception and interdiction roles. The Galaxy corporation developed a series of prototype craft from the successful LL901 light scout vessel. The basic spaceframe was stretched to accommodate an advanced high-power compact fusion reactor, a FTL jump drive, high performance sublight drives, additional armaments and an advanced AI system to assist with target tracking and identification and navigation on long patrols. The wing area was increased to accommodate additional radiator capacity to dissipate the heat generated by the advanced combat systems as well as improve trans-atmospheric performance. Armament features dual high rate blasters on each wingtip to engage smaller craft. Dual forward particle cannons and 6 under-wing hard-points carrying auto-seeking anti-matter torpedoes allow the LL919 to effectively engage heavy vessels. The FTL jump drive capabilities are classified but experts estimate that a jump drive in a craft this size would be capable of around 6 intersellar jumps before requiring maintenance and refueling. However, the craft does appear to have dorsal Bussard scoop which might allow the LL919 to extend its maximum endurance by travelling through dense clouds of interstellar hydrogen gas to replenish its fusion reactor. The craft features retractable nose gear and the ventral fins pivot to serve as the rear landing supports. The LL919 has had nothing but praise from the initial test pilots and it is now being rolled out to the LLSF's elite units. The photo below shows an LL919 wearing the famed "Scarlet Vipers" squadron colors. It is expected that the LL919 will be sent to equip all of the LLSF's patrol squadrons, replacing the current issue X-1 patrol craft, Cosmic Cruiser, FX-Starpatroller and other units, once Galaxy Corp. completes the initial Low-Rate-Initial-Production models and is authorized to begin full scale production. Link to brickshelf gallery Builders Notes: This MOC is proof that a build is never done. I have had different variations of this build in LDD for several years and I was never quite satisfied with the look. The new T70 xwing canopy struck me as perfect for this build so I recently re-designed the canopy section to include it. There is a "design progression" picture in the brickshelf gallery that captures many of the iterations of this design over the years. The nearly studless exterior features significant SNOT construction techniques. Total piece count is 343 bricks including the pilot minifig. The design is obviously inspired by the Buck-Rogers Earth Directorate "Thunder fighter" with the tail section somewhat inspired by the A-wing. For now, this MOC will likely remain a virtual creation as acquiring some of the pieces in the colors needed will be difficult. This is my first attempt a using "Bluerender" and I just want to say a big thank you to those who developed it. I found it very easy to use on my first go-around and can have the satisfaction of a more realistic visualization of this creation until I can find a color scheme I like that where all the elements are commonly available. One of the next things I need to try is to figure out how to include the classic-space logos in the render. Anyways - thanks for looking drc

    [MOC] The Monolith of Mara

    Humanity discovered the relics of alien civilisations long before it encountered other life-forms themselves. When deep-space survey ships like the LL919 left their local sector they found strange ruins and abandoned artefacts on distant worlds like Mara. The next time they launched, the survey ships carried teams of civilian xenoarchaeologists. It would be decades before they even began to understand the objects they had found; over a century before their researches pointed the way to true contact. The Monolith couldn't be scratched, even with tempered diamond-tipped tools. Although initial survey missions were usually carried out by a solo pilot, the LL919 could carry science teams or civilian researchers. It was pretty cramped in there for long flights. Flickr album
  3. Hello, I reccently rediscovered some of my old Tente sets hidden away, and decided to reinterpreted as Neo-Classic Space. Tente was a construction toy that was produced in Spain from 1972 to 1993. It felt much more brittle than LEGO and pieces snapped easily, however in the 80's, when I was spending long summers in Spain and was right in the target age group, they made some interesting sets (especially space themed), and I managed to collect a few. So far I've rebuilt 4 of the 5 space themed sets I have, Tente went in for a lot more domed screens than LEGO and had some interesting pieces that LEGO don't do, so a number of the sets have been changed significantly, but that was partly the point. I'd be interested to know if anyone else had Tente and if you've ever rebuilt them in LEGO. The original names of the sets are, from top to bottom, Space Patrol, Vigilantic, Pegasus and Krang, the orignial sets can be seen here: http://www.latentete.../?serie=Compact The whole Tente range is worth checking out; the best archieve site I can find is www.latenteteca.com/

    [MOC] Exo-Walker

    Whipped this lil' beauty together within the space of a couple of hours to test my leg-building skills, and I'm pretty pleased with the result. More images on my Flickr. Enjoy!

    [MOC] Neo-Classic Space Loadlifter Mech

    Do you ever have that feeling, like you just can't lift all of those heavy pallets with your own two arms? Your inter-galactic shipping business starting to stack up on you? If so, then no more worries - I present to you, the Mk. IV Strongman heavy loadlifter mech, capable of lifting up to 90 Zonian tons(for all of you androids, that's 001100010011000100110000 Gixxilian Primal tons). Tired of how your mech's pinchers or claws are always denting your space pallets, leading you to lose valuable customers? If so, then this mech was made just for you, with forks carefully crafted so as to be able to pick up even the strangest of deliveries. Tired of how, even if you get your current mech to carry something, it falls over as soon as it takes its first step? No worries - the Mk. IV Strongman is built just for you! With a carefully designed counterbalance, and feet designed with the latest tech in interior gyroscopes, you couldn't tip this mech if you tried! Now, just look at that reach, and tell us, are you going to be able to find that on any of the latest competing models? Of course not! Just watch it streeeeeeetch those pneumatics! And if you're still not satisfied, for a limited time, we're offering this set of fifty-year warrented Hypaxxian steak knives for free in addition! Just don't go cutting through any hulls on us!
