See replies in this thread for NEW models - I have consolidated all models from this series from other topics in to one thread (and I had time on my hands during lockdown!) Models in this thread - SHADOW CASTER PHANTOM II PELTA-CLASS FRIGATE IMPERIAL GOZANTI-CLASS CRUISER QUASAR-CLASS CARRIER IMPERIAL TROOP TRANSPORT GHOST & PHANTOM INTERDICTOR CRUISER TIE DEFENDER MINING GUILD TIE FIGHER SHADOW CASTER 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
I picked up a Phantom II set (75170) a couple of weeks ago for my 7 yr old son. I was immediately impressed with the figures adding key pieces to our collection, but the shuttle was severely lacking. Like usual, there was no room in the fuselage for any figures. Even the pilot barely fits...wth! So I gave it a go and chose to fix the issues. I wanted to start with a fresh piece so I could take my time and avoid my son asking for his toy every five minutes. Did some looking and found a shuttle, by itself, for $7.00. Grabbed it and got started the minute it arrived. The main idea was to add cargo and passenger room while connecting the rear of the hull with the cockpit, creating a walk through of sorts. I also wanted to maintain the exterior dimensions so we didn't lose the ability to dock with the Ghost. I wanted to keep the build simple and provide strength since it would still be played with. Like most ships, and sets for that matter, this shuttle was over-engineered. I can understand why, but it really was overkill for this application. Original set... Interior structure for top fin...
I am currently working on a Ghost MOC from Star Wars Rebels. I'm basing the design of DarthTwoShedsJackson's Ghost. I really dislike the original Lego set because its too small and has no interior. I'm making it UCS scaled and it would really help if anyone could give me some advice.
