mcphatty posted a topic in LEGO Star WarsA 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!
The Rogue Shadow: from the first 'The Force Unleashed' game. This build took me almost a year of on-off building and it was certainly the most challenging thing I've ever made with Lego! The hardest things being how to keep its asymmetric shape strong enough to pick up and carry around (it weighs a ton!) + getting the odd 'wing panels' on each side to stay up without sagging whilst being able to rotate 90 degrees. I used the only floorplan that I could find online as a guide (not sure if it's an official floorplan) and I made sure that it incorporated all of the rooms and features detailed in the wiki page, including bunks for 8 passengers, medical bay, training room and more. Outside the engine room, you can see a huge stygium crystal which looks decorative, but it actually powers the ship's cloaking device - in the training room I put a few different assassin droids and a large selection of melee weapons for Starkiller to keep his fighting skills up and next to that there's a small 'Focus Chamber' for him to channel his dark energies! .... anyway I hope you like my build - and thanks for looking!
