Hallo! Various fantastic Star Destroyer MOCs have been posted but Mon Calamari ships are very rare to find. I guess the organic shape is one of the reasons. Creating curved designs like this in Lego is on another level. Currently raskolnikov building a huge MC cruiser which finally pushed me forward to put on my own hands on a MC cruiser. A UCS „Profundity“ - Admiral Raddus´ MC75 cruiser will be my next project. As reference for the scale I picked the 10030 ISD. The result should be a counterpart with 72 cm in lenght. Despite the small dimensions I chose it really is a challenging ship due to its sleek, curved design. Fortunately it has a big armorbelt which is a bit easier area to realise and in my opinion looks a bit cooler with the “military” elements Link to album Here is my first attempt with curved slopes. Simple, with a nice result. And the docking bay will be easy to include. The surface is sleek but unfortunately the nose is to chubby. The front isn’t convincing me anymore. Its closer to an BATTLESTAR (Galactica e.g.) than a MC cruiser. I will change this for sure. Another big thing will be including "pods" on the the hull. Well, thats all so far folks. Greetings Kommander
See replies in this thread for NEW models - I have consolidated all models from Ep. VIII from other topics in to one thread (I had time on my hands during lockdown!) Models in this thread - SUPREMACY RESISTANCE BOMBER TIE SILENCER MANDATOR IV SIEGE DREADNOUGHT LIBERTINE SPACE YACHT CANTO BIGHT POLICE SPEEDER SKI SPEEDER XI-CLASS SHUTTLE RADDUS MC85 CRUISER NINKA BUNKERBUSTER SUPREMACY A nice simple model this time. Supreme Leader Snoke's massive starship from Ep. VIII. The only slightly tricky part was getting all those engines on without the model becoming too high. I managed to get 14 engines on to this little model by staggering the brackets but it is still not enough to be completely accurate. Overall a nice simple build which gets the message across. How tricky can a flying wing be? Hope you like it. Jon and on display planets stye with Snoke himself:
HI again everyone The final bricklink order I needed has arrived and as hinted at in the Profundity topic here is the Raddus from The Last Jedi. I actually started building this before the Profundity but with all the tinkering and rebuilds it has taken longer. As with most of my builds a certain piece defines the build and it is then built form there. For the Raddus it was the wedge for the nose (as discussed in the Profundity topic). The piece does not come in light bluish or dark bluish grey, so I have used flat silver. It works fine so no major problem. From the front I have used wedges and slopes to create the main section of the hull with the main section being 4 studs wide tapering back to 2 studs wide before the engine section using the 10x1 curved slopes. These slopes have been attached using headlight bricks through the middle of the model so the model is not wider than the wedge at the front. I have also managed to build the engine cluster at the back and have used 1x1 trans-blue plates for the hangar on either side near the front. The model flows quite nicely from front to back but as with most Mon Calamari vessels it is very difficult to get the curved shape completely right with LEGO, especially in such a small scale. I am not 100% happy with this model but I think I have got most of the details in and I am not sure what else I could change without losing the overall feel. Compromises have to be made in this scale after all. I also think the Vice Admiral Holdo figure looks cool next to the finished model. Let me know what you think and Merry Christmas to all! Jon
