  1. I've been craving an LAAT of my own for a long time! I missed the opportunity to get one of the Lego sets during my dark-ages and have absolutely nowhere to put a UCS sized pile of plastic, so I thought I'd continue the midi-scale thing and try to make something bookshelf friendly. This isn't intended to be any particular scale, just roughly the same size as the midi-sized Slave 1 (75312) with room for figures and strong enough to be played with. The cockpit bubble looks oversized and there’s obviously only one of them so I had to throw accuracy to the wind there, but I’ve squeezed in as many other recognisable details as I could. The roof opens up to allow access to the cockpit which has just enough room for two Clone Troopers/Pilots to get cozy. There’s a small weapons locker in the area between the front hatches, though it' mostly for decoration as its very hard to acces, and the side doors hinge outwards and fold back so that four Clones can be seated inside. There isn't enough headroom to have them hanging by a handrail but some fearless perching before deployment is definitely doable. Finally I squeezed a stupidly small BARC speeder up the back end of the ship. Overall the Republic Gunship is a 28cm long (including the guns), 27cm wide and weighs 410g. Instructions are on Rebrickable, I've only used common and cheap parts so the whole MOC with stand will cost around £45 for the 608 pieces. https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-107732/ron_mcphatty/midi-republic-gunship And here's my midi-scale collection so far!
  2. A long, long time ago I started working on a micro scale Millennium Falcon. To begin with all I wanted to do was add detail to the Microfighter but I kept tinkering and before I knew it I had a growing collection of micro Star Wars freighters and fighters, and here they are! Instructions for all these little builds are on my Rebrickable page. Since this all started with that Falcon Microfighter the cockpit piece (a light blueish-grey 2x2 truncated cone) became my yardstick for scale. Luckily trans-black 1x1 slope pieces work as fighter cockpits at the same scale so all the ships are, and will continue to be, as close to scale with each other as I can manage, at least based on these pieces and whatever reference images I can gather from Google. My Blockade Runner (April 2021) is the last ship on my micro Star Wars to-do list, although it’s hardly micro! The size and weight were a new challenge for me, I’ve never had to worry about a moc falling apart under its own weight before, but I enjoyed the challenge and managed to make it pretty easy to pick strong. I’ve put together instructions for the Tantive IV as well as the Liberator from Star Wars Rebels, which I couldn’t resist building for myself. Rather than doing new posts for each new ship I’ll edit the very long post below. All the instructions are on my Rebrickable page and there are photos and Studio renders some photos of the ships in this post, plus a few more on Flickr and Instagram. Thanks for looking!
  3. ********************************************************************** INSTRUCTIONS NOW AVAILABLE Given the number of techniques used from JBB_777’s design I have obtained his consent prior to making my instructions available (for a modest USD 10) 486 pages of detailed PDF instructions on Rebrickable ********************************************************************** It took the better part of the year but I present my rendition of a minfig scale LAATi Republic Gunship. It is based on the version from the The Clone Wars television series, which made a stronger impression on me than the one that appeared in Episode II AOTC. The TV show told the full story of the Clone Wars and the considerable extent of the gunship's deployment and impact in battle. I used both the studio model from AOTC and images from the show as reference materials to design this MOC. The MOC uses many of the building techniques seen in JBB_777’s 2017 gunship, which I liked very much, such as the Technic frame and the method to attach the wings to the body. The engine took inspiration from Caleb Ricks’ gunship from 2018. I designed this ship to be as accurate as I could to the source material. One main attribute of the ship I included but that is usually left out in other MOCs is the angled fuselage that widens from front to back. The stepped surface is a compromise to achieve this result given the choice of the internal supporting structure. Other MOCs based purely on the version from AOTC did not have to face this issue due to the omission of doors in the movie model, which left empty spaces on the ship’s lower body. My builds tend to be sturdy and this MOC is no different. However I made a little gaffe – the ship is slightly off balance. The engine and wings of the ship went through several redesigns and by the time I was satisfied with the look I did not realize how much additional parts and weight I had added. However the ships still sits fine on its own as long as no extra pressure is applied to the rear. Additional Facts: The MOC consists of 1917 parts and took 7 months to complete Measures 33cm long (excluding turret barrels) with 38cm wingspan Shares 50% of the parts with JBB_777's gunship The AT-RT from the final image is a moded version of one of JoeChu1980's AT-RTs Chef_LAATi_View1 by Chef Aslopert, on Flickr Chef_LAATi_View2 by Chef Aslopert, on Flickr Chef_LAATi_View3 by Chef Aslopert, on Flickr Chef_LAATi_View4 by Chef Aslopert, on Flickr Chef_LAATi_View5 by Chef Aslopert, on Flickr Chef_LAATi_View6 by Chef Aslopert, on Flickr Chef_LAATi_View7 by Chef Aslopert, on Flickr Chef_LAATi_View8 by Chef Aslopert, on Flickr Chef_LAATi_View9 by Chef Aslopert, on Flickr Chef_LAATi_Geonosis by Chef Aslopert, on Flickr Thanks for reading!

    Suggestion, mod of gunship

    Hi everyone, after watchin the recent Jurrasic World trailer, I have realised that lego has relased a clear bubble spherical canopy previously. I aproximated it to be around 8 to10 studs wide, but has anyone tried fitting a pair of those to the gunship? Thanks if anyone can pose some picture. If it is feasible, I might try to find them to moc my gunship

    Anyone Else got this Problem?

    Hey guys, I just got around to getting the 2013 Republic Gunship and has stuck Padme's head on sideways, assuming I could rotate it later. When I tried to move it, it wouldn't budge. I even asked several people in my house to try incase my hands were sticky, and used a rubber wine bottle opener, to no avail. I couldn't even pull it off. When my dad finally used plier and jammed it off, I noticed the black stripe on the neck attachment piece was printed sideways. I am not sure if this means anything. Also, most of it had rubbed off and stained the inside of the head black... I have never noticed this in LEGO minifigures before, but has anyone else encountered the same problem? Thanks, legozebra
