I'ts been a while since I finished this model, probably some months after getting my hands on original Saturn V. The latter seemed lonely on the shelf and it was my mission to build it a company. As an engineer I always admired these large structures but always been too lazy to do something in that direction. After seen the proposal at Lego Ideas for Umbilical Tower, I started to gather ideas, pictures and most important the - bricks. Since 20th of July marks 50 anniversary, it seemed like a good idea to present this project. Therefore I took model from the shelf, dusted of some dust and took some new pictures. The last time I didn't get the time since I was running late for our BrickFest. 1. Planing and Building As any good creations, this started as a plan, something like this: The next step was scaling. I am sorry Sariel, but I am more familiar with pen and paper than your great tool (the top should be at aprox. 140 studs). The internals of the Launch pad was made out studded technic bricks which are quite suitable for carrying a lot of load. These proved vital in the later stage when Pad is occupied with the tower and Saturn V. The outside was tiled with tiles and the building of the tower could go on. The most critical component was how to attach the tower to 4 points, while allowing beams to be at angle in both direction (from the plans and pictures it could be seen, that tower is getting narrower and thinner at the same time). A person is added at the corner to get a feeling of a scale of the tower. The solution is presented here, an angle connector at 157.5°: 2.The Big Thing The result is here: I've tried my best to show the whole thing but my dining area seems too small. It looks more beautiful with Saturn V: And picture from behind: On the top there are some knobs to conrol the support rods, the position of the white room and the top support above the capsule. Please note that crane is also fully operational. Another picture of the top with crane in lift-off position. The central column (gray) has room for an elevator, however it was not added since it would be very difficult to observe White room and the Apollo 11. I hope the astronaut on the plank is not late. And bottom up view. 3. Details Mobile transporter is simplified to the bone: just some necessary things. And of course it should be capable of having a tone of bricks on its shoulders: A functional crane is simple but I hope it adds to the character of the tower Pad is almost clear with exception of some service buildings Some more files can be found at my Bricksafe page. I hope you like it. It's always an conversation starter at home. Please feel free to comment or ask a question.
CustomJoe_MD posted a topic in Minifig Customisation WorkshopThis will be the official topic for a long running project. Project Beyond Welcome to Phase 1 Our first crowdfunding effort to get minifigs PAD printed. We believe these will never be made by Lego oficially. Its a 2pack of villains + a super dupper secret girl minifig. It will be similar to kickstarter but privately held (you need to email to get the link to the funding page). See here how to donate and help us out. https://www.flickr.c...05/14034537019/ READ it a couple times before asking questions. ------------------------------------------------------- You can see what characters inspired minis we will be making in this first phase (link above). If you are a fan and want them to be made plastic, HELP US make it so. We only need 250 people to step up with less than 50 euros each. NACM will do the printing as they have done before. Parts will be original lego parts and plastic, so you know it will be top shelf product. We however are using a different way to fund our efforts, by basically having all 250 figs (each model) pre-sold before printing in order to cover the costs. You will be left with a voucher to checkout the minifig you supported at out BL seller's store (In FRANCE). More info in the link and please email us if you wish to be one of the 250, or MORE. More details will be added as we get things organized. a FAQ is on the way. Right now we need 250 people at least to say yes. YES I will help, Yes I want this to happen. We can't do it without you. Phase 2 Will include a slimy villainess and an ear shatering villain ;) ------------------------------------------------------- a sneak peak at something that we are working on NOW Lets call it a super T-shirt https://www.flickr.c...N05/14191606803 ---------------------------------------- Our previous product: Black spidey head PAD Print - Legomazing project http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=95120
CustomJoe_MD posted a topic in Buy, Sell, Trade and Findshttps://www.flickr.c...02/16627810401/ Our latest project is finally ready to reveal, an updated and improved version of the initial rendering posted last summer that we have been making as accurate as we could. Introducing Killstrike It will be available in a month and half. For now enjoy the render, i'll post pics of the prototype as soon as we have it. (a week or so) Killstrike features 360° PAD PRINTING This is a colab between Legomazing toys and the former powerbrick team (Now cyclopsbricks) for previous projects see flickr links and hope you like what we are doing. More deluxe projects coming. Enjoy. And let us know what you think as more pics are released. Lmazing team
So after a long absence here I am back on the horse, and its a black horse.:D https://www.flickr.c...05/14077040061/ Final Result: It was designed, so you can get an extra head and remove the print for the mouth design and have a classic spidey. So it's 2 for 1 design. Just add an official Venom torso and your good to go. This was a personal and very dear project to me, and took some serious work, the right people and time to pull off. Hope you like it. This is also my little revenge on the Comic Con figure (Arghh!). And before you ask , Yes it comes in black. Really happy with how it turned out. When you really want something done, isn't that right? More projects on the way, and I'll be resurrecting my original crowdfunding idea (originally for the arm patch project) for new designs (stuff that has a slim chance of ever being done oficially and variations on official stuff, that didn't quite get done right). PS: Sneak peek on how it looks with a torso https://www.flickr.c...in/photostream/
