  1. Mission Log from Cpt. Bannon: The squad had just established the camp when I received the message from High Command. I am to abandon the current mission and rendevouz with Commander Bryce on board the ISD Relentless in the Uquine system. I’ve passed command of my squad to Lieutenant Kelstrap. Information has been limited. I look forward to being briefed upon arrival. Onboard the Lambda-class shuttle Pelicana Pilot over the comms: Welcome on board Sir. We apologize for the mess. This ship is retrofitted for ordnance and equipment not officers, but we were your fastest option. Make yourself as comfortable as possible. Some time later... Pilot over the comms: Sir. We’re making our final approach to the Relentless and have clearance to board immediately. Lieutenant Markland will show you to your quarters on board. Cpt. Bannon: My quarters? I’m wasting my time… They’re sending an old shuttle to pick me up and now they’re letting me wait... This is not the Empire I fought for… At least this gives me time to change into something more formal… To be continued...

    Krennic's mini ? Shuttle

    Hello everyone ! I think it's no surprise that i am pumped to see Rogue One TONIGHT ! I've been waiting for the movie since it was announced, and a specific group of people have caught my atenttion ever since day 1: the Death Squad, i just love the idea, looks, and function of Krennic's special team, and Krennic himself, and it has grown after reading Catalyist. I am a sucker for SW's shuttles, unfortunally most of the TLG's sets and MOC's are huuuge since they are in minifig scale (or close to it) and i don´t have the space to display them, i still wanted to make Krennic's shuttle since i am in love with the ship so i thought "Why not do it in a mini-midi scale ?" and that's what i did. Now i could be wrong of this being on the mini scale, but to be honest i don't know in which scale this fits I gotta say that it was hard to recreate this ship in this scale (specially since i wanted to keep the wing folding, landing gears and ramp in the final model) and while not perfect i am really happy with the result since i think i re-created it fairly well. This Shuttle has some interesting and sharp angles that were definetly a challenge while building it, but i think it came out looking quite well,,, atleast it's recognizable Moving to the back, i had no idea of how i was going to do the enginee of the ship, it finally ocured to me to use clips and grilled tiles to get the look of the enginee, the rest was pretty simple to do so i'm not gonna get into it lol i am very happy that i was able to pull of this mode, you can't see it very well here but the model is sitting on it's landing gears along with the retractible boarding ramp, this wing-folding function was very difficult to re-create due to the size i decided to build the model on, as a consecuence of this the wings're waaaat thicker than i'd like to, but what are you gonna do.... I am still pleased wih the result. And that's pretty much it, thank you guys so much for taking the time to read this, i really hope you like this little thing, i am very happy to anounce that the instructions (this means the PDF & LDD files) will be up by Friday for free !! they will be posted here so keep an eye out for that May the force be with you ! -Prime
  3. Hi Everyone, This is my first post on here but I have been following some of the amazing minifig scale Star Wars MOCs' on here. I have been fascinated with them and decided to give them a bash. So far the rebel fleet includes UCS Slave 1, UCS Falcon (2017), Most recent A-Wing, I have made Intherts' X-Wing, U-Wing, as well as created a Y-wing using his cockpit and reverse engineered the main body of the ship form images. SO, to add to the fleet the Rebel scum have stolen the plans for a Lambda Shuttle.(I) They have gotten pretty far with the rebuild/reverse engineering of the design from the images on Marshal Bananas' Flickr but I have gotten stuck with the landing gear and how to connect the cockpit at those angles! I have started ordering parts for the real build. I'm about 50% delivered and will be starting on the cockpit first to try work it out in actual bricks. Would welcome your comments as well as any advice you guys may have about the build. https://www.flickr.com/photos/150280550@N02/ MB Lambda Shuttle by Hamish Dobbie, on Flickr MB Lambda Shuttle #1 by Hamish Dobbie, on Flickr Capture4 by Hamish Dobbie, on Flickr Capture5 by Hamish Dobbie, on Flickr Capture6 by Hamish Dobbie, on Flickr Capture3 by Hamish Dobbie, on Flickr Capture1 by Hamish Dobbie, on Flickr Thanks!

  5. Hello everyone! After receiving so many enquiries seeking instructions for my Zeta-class cargo shuttle, I am pleased to announce the release of a professional 768 page instruction manual for purchase. The final piece count is 4418, just surpassing 75159 Death Star. The completed model measures 70 x 56 x 38cm (wings upright). I have put together a package that includes the 768 page pdf instruction manual, parts list and LDD file. All of it is available for 25 British pounds (£25). If you would like to purchase the plans, please either PM me or contact me at renegadelight@googlemail.com. I will have a public parts list uploaded to rebrickable very soon (for simplicity, red coloured pieces can be anything you like, they are not visible from the exterior). I’m sure everyone appreciates the long hours that went into designing both the physical model and step-by-step build. I had a lot of fun putting this one together and hope others will too! The Rebrickable parts list is now live here. Here is the original thread from February 2017 and the Flickr album. I have revised the attachment between the wings and main body, but not been brave enough to motorise it - I'll leave that to someone else to try! Below are a few excerpts from the manual: Please feel free to use this thread to discuss anything about the model design, building steps, part substitutions, etc.
  6. Hi! I want to show you my new project - First Order Xi-Class Light Shuttle from Last Jedi movie! Minifigures scale, now 1070 parts, 50% complete. now, LDD project, but after designing, I'll make real model and instruction. How do you like it? Any sugestions?

    [MOC] UCS Zeta-class cargo shuttle

    Greetings everyone! After a couple of months work I am proud to present my minifigure scale Zeta-class cargo shuttle. “Manufactured by Telgorn Corporation with Sienar Fleet Systems, the Zeta-class shuttle carries a modular ‘interstellar orange’ cargo pod for versatility mounted on a 35.5m length frame.” Ever since Rogue One introduced the design, the industrial mining tug aesthetic appealed to me. It has the kit-bashed sensibility that I love in Star Wars, so I set about a UCS sized build. The lower cargo deck has space for troops and features a communications patch bay. I’m still working on finishing touches to the upper deck, but it houses the two seat command console and aft tech station. The gearing mechanism from 10212 locks the wings upright. By simply lifting the top deck away I can adjust the angle if required. The wingspan measures 1.15m, so I have yet to find space to photograph the wings in flight mode! During construction I used LDD for rapid prototyping. I still need to update the final build into the program, but the current ballpark is 4000 pieces. The Rogue One ultimate visual guide and Battlefront Scarif DLC were invaluable for determining the proportions. My personal technique for ‘minifigure scale’ is to calculate in-universe size against stud length. Small craft like speeders and skimmers skew towards 4.0s/m, starfighters 3.5s/m and large craft (e.g. UCS Slave 1 and Lambda shuttle) at 2.7s/m. Therefore I aimed for 92s long and 75s high. The final model measures 88s (l) 70s (h) 48s (w) / 70cm (l) 56cm (h) 38cm (w). Finally I threw together a Scarif landing pad for a diorama. Hope you all like it! (Link to the flickr album is here.)
  8. My model of Lambda-class Imperial Shuttle was created from scratch and it is based on the construction solutions of the 75094 set. First it was created in LDD and later, after ordering the bricks, I made a number of significant adjustments. The biggest challenge was to keep the proportions as decent as possible, which, apart from the limitations resulting from the use of the 75094 skeleton, does not seem to me to be a simple thing on this scale. Among other things, for this reason, I finally gave up the opened interior (on which I did not particularly care about). Wherever possible, I tried to reproduce or refer to the details of the original. You may attach the landing gear but my model will always be presented on the stand. It is very stable and consists of about 1600 parts and therefore roughly over 600 more than the progenitor. I have designed the wings from the beginning in SNOT. The body is two studs longer, and in a large part, is a completely different construction than 75094. The wings are better embedded in it and they are less swaying, which is important because they are heavier. The fin is also proportionally extended by two studs and embedded somewhat differently. I have managed to slim down the cockpit and get a minimal nose down reduction in relation to the bottom, keeping the place for the stressed Han Solo. In this scale in flying mode, it matches the height of the UCS Slave I and it is the optimal scale for this model for me. 10212 UCS in flight position (and this is the only way I imagine presenting it) is monstrously huge - I mainly mean the height. I think that my model next to the UCS would not be too ashamed.

    [MOC] Kylo Ren shuttle

    Hi, I present you my version of the suttle of Kylo Ren. It's not an UCS (some details are differents) but it correspond to the idea that I have of this ship : a black shadow. I kept the sytem to open the cockpit at the front and the back, but I didn't worked inside yet. At the begining, wings could be vertical, but considering the weight of wings, I have to change and they are fixed (but it's only to display in my dedicated room) Complete album flickr of this MOC : https://www.flickr.com/photos/138759056@N05/albums/72157687270801021 IMG_20171019_175236 IMG_20171019_175013 IMG_20171019_175203 IMG_20171019_175101 IMG_20171019_174854 IMG_20171019_175026 IMG_20171019_175051 IMG_20171019_175328 IMG_20171019_175306 IMG_20171019_175738 IMG_20171019_175643 IMG_20171019_175546 IMG_20171019_175505 IMG_20171019_175343 IMG_20171019_175844 IMG_20171019_175922
  10. My new and improved Space Shuttle orbiter MOC with landing gear. LDD file available on my Bricksafe page.
  11. Yes, ANOTHER thread with MOD´s of the Imperial Shuttle and First Order TIE. :) Well I thought I´d share these anyway. The Imperial shuttle is one of my favourite vehicles of the OT, so what started with a couple of tiles ended up with a couple of Bricklink orders. The wings are made in the same way as the top fin (and UCS wings). Bricks and Technic beams. The end result turned out very nice. The cockpit needed to be thinner when made out of all white parts. The designers of 75094 and 10212 used gray in a very clever way to make the cockpit look thin yet still hold figs. In my flickr there is a before and after photo of the cockpit during the mod. There is no room for a copilot anymore but the troop area remained unchanged. Alot of tweaks and rebuilds later I feel finished. There is room for improvement but at the moment i´m satisfied. b] shuttle01 by mordatre, on Flickr shuttle03 by mordatre, on Flickr shuttle04 by mordatre, on Flickr shuttle08 by mordatre, on Flickr And now the First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter 75101. Main differences are the now white wings and the inner spokes on the wings. The inner spokes are, as you know a problem since the first TIE Fighter released. I am satisfied with the solution I came up with using technic connectors and axles. I tried using longer axles but then they bent outwards because of the plates, so I used the shorter ones for a sleeker look. The top cannon got rebuilt to look more like the one on Hasbro´s model. I also extended the main body so the model is two studs wider than the official set. FOSpecialForcesTIE01 by mordatre, on Flickr FOSpecialForcesTIE02 by mordatre, on Flickr FOSpecialForcesTIE04 by mordatre, on Flickr There is already a great version of the standard FO TIE in this forum by user belkor. He inspired me to make my own. I based mine on 75101. I´m currently awaiting parts to incorporate the spokes on the inside of the wings as I did on my Special Forces TIE. Other than that this one is also two studs wider. FirstorderTIEfighter02 by mordatre, on Flickr FirstorderTIEfighter04 by mordatre, on Flickr FirstorderTIEfighter03 by mordatre, on Flickr

    [MOC] Medical Corps

    Medical Corps by Veynom, on Flickr The Medical Corps is a military unit providing medical services too all army personnel, in war and peace. The Medical corps services were formed during the Clone Wars and incorporated to the Grand Army of the Republic. The decision to create such unit was taken by the Senate of the Republic as the war started to prolongate and to expand onto a growing number of planets through the Galaxy. A majority of senators acted that then that it would be less expensive and faster to attempt “fixing battle-damaged clones” than growing more. However, and still for budgetary reasons, the future Medical Corps would be granted only second-grade equipment: modified outdated ships and speeders, old droids and equipment… Still, the Medical Corps was voted in and assigned with the task of identifying, evacuating, healing clones wounded on the various battlefields before sending them back to active duty. With the rise of the Empire, the Medical Corps was simply renamed into Imperial Medical Corps. Equipment were barely upgraded on a strict necessity basis and the overall budget did not really increase. Classified documents from the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order (COMPNOR) later revealed that showing wounded troops and casualties had to be considered as negative propaganda that could only serve any rebellion movement. Therefore appearance, size, and image of the medical care activities should keep a low-visibility profile. Armor and Gear Medical Platoon by Veynom, on Flickr Medical Corps members were first clones and as such had standard clone armors retrieved from the Grand Army surplus. Only a specific medical marking pattern based on dark red was applied to distinguish them from regular combat units. Because of the budget restrictions, not all armors were similar across the unit. HowTo: Helmets are from Clone Army customs. All minifig torsos, arms, legs and accessories have custom decals (water transfer). 614-AvA Speeder Bike Medic-Variant 614-AvA Speeder Bike Medic-Variant by Veynom, on Flickr Several types of speeder bikes, including 614-AvA types, were used by the Medical Corps after an adequate painting job was performed to add the medical logo and standardize markings. Several container crates were also generously lent to the Medical Corps. Rumours from the field report that often, speeders, crates, and other equipment were simply recycled from various battlefields and repaired for active duty inside the Medical Corps HowTo: The speeder bike is a MOD from the 75090 set while the crate is a recolouring of the 75141 crate. The crate can be attached to the speeder. The medical logo is a custom decal (water transfer) Medivac Platoon in action by Veynom, on Flickr QH-6 LAVr Medilance QH-6 LAVr Medilance by Veynom, on Flickr The LAVr QH-6 chariot is a multi-functional speeder universally exploited by various ground forces as a light transport vehicle. The Medilance variant has been adapted to medical care and can carry one stretcher. QH-6 LAVr Medilance by Veynom, on Flickr HowTo: MOC with custom decals inspired by the old LL-924 design. The root can be opened to add or remove the pilot. Several accessories can be moved inside to simulate medical activities. The stretcher easily slide in and out. Medivac Speeders by Veynom, on Flickr Sheathipede-class Medivac Shuttle Sheathipede-class Medivac Shuttle by Veynom, on Flickr Several old separatist Sheathipede shuttles were retrofitted into medivac shuttles. These could carry up to two wounded troopers on stretchers, a droid (often a EG-6 Power droid to power medical devices), and the pilot. Medivac Sheathipede back by Veynom, on Flickr Medivac Sheathipede top by Veynom, on Flickr HowTo: MOD based on the 75170 Phantom set. 8 studs longer, with custom decals (water transfer), additional details and greeble, detailed interior and place for a custom power droid. Medical Corps by Veynom, on Flickr All vehicles have playable features (opening compartments, rotating devices…). They are all highly swooshable and quite sturdy. So, what is your favourite element of this Medical Corps ? · The custom medic minifigs · The Speeder bike · The Medilance speeder · The Sheatipede Medivac shuttle · Gonky, the power droid I’m now considering building a capital ship for the Medical Corps. Maybe a Pelta-class or something more exotic. Ideas welcome …. Size matters not. Comments, remarks and constructive criticisms are most welcome.
  14. The Platipus Class Imperial Shuttle never saw extensive service. It was designed to be slightly smaller than the Tydirium Class with heavy missile armament, but its dependency on supply lines quickly got the project cancelled after a handful of them saw limited action against pirate raiders. The foot soldiers liked it because it was a mix between a Tank Buster and a Transport vehicle ( MI-24 Hind wink wink ) I wanted to design something that had the marks of a Star Wars craft with added shapes inspired by real life animals (Platipus) and aquatic insects (Water beetle) with a Tie Advanced jammed in there :D The craft has no internals. It is just for display. Feedback is welcome
  15. Hello guys, I have finished now the Imperial Shuttle I started already a while ago: Now all of the functions actually work, and the details of the ship have been finished so that everything should look as smooth as possible. The work was pretty hard balance between accurate looks, working functions and durability, and I am now quite happy with the result. ^^ Here is a video showing the functions that include: - 2 x lasercannons - 2 x missiles - Backcannon All of the cannons are launched by pressing different buttons at the bottom of the ship. The mechanisms behind this are rather complicated and they are based on the use of fishing wire that delivers the force to the right place. - Wings automatically turn the landing gear open and close. Also, the white covering plates of the landing gear open and close automatically. The wingcannons also turn up and down automatically, though on the video they are a little jammed. - Boarding ramp and an opening and accessible hatch. - Removable walls, wall and cockpit canopy. - Cockpit seats 4 minifigures, the interior has 2 seats, but can accomodate a platoon of up to 8+ minifigures or even more, if you don't care about comfort. - Samppu
  16. Finally got my Kylo Ren command shuttle converted to all black with red viewing port and folding wings. I think it turned out decent and is still very playable and swooshable! Started on it last January, but became addicted to Star Wars Battlefront for way too long after getting a PS4 at Christmas. Anyway with the recent release of Krennic's shuttle in mostly all black, I got inspired to pick up the black pieces from many Bricklink orders and finish my conversion of Kylo Ren's shuttle. I wish I could have gotten the red viewing port "fangs" to transition a little better into the top portion, but it still looks pretty good from a distance. Removing all the cross linked technic beams opened up a lot of room in the interior. I added two sets of the technic rotation joint disks to each wing and now they have three clickable positions for folding up and down. 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command ShuttleIMG_4497 MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr Command Shuttles Comparison by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr Command Shuttles Comparison by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr
  17. Hey guys. I thought I would post a video of my Airport. I "think" I am finally done messing with it for a while. It now has a general aviation area, a much larger main terminal, a rebuilt tower, a seaport and many other improvements. I also wanted to incorporate the new airplane sets that came out this year. So here it is. Hope you like the airport. Next project is finding a place for the modular coming out in Jan!
  18. I have decided to build the, what is in my opinion, best ship in Star Wars: the classic and sleek imperial shuttle. From making a wanted list and ticking off what I actually have, is there any other advice you guys can pass on to me? It is a bit daunting but I have amassed about 25% of the total parts and just thinking of that beauty pushes me on. Thanks.
  19. This is my movie-accurate Lambda-Class Imperial Shuttle, designed from pictures of the movie model, set photos of the full-scale mockup used for filming, and the book Star Wars Complete Cross Sections. It is highly detailed inside and out, with a full interior with space for 6 minifigures in the cockpit and a further 18 in the cargo/passenger compartment and a detailed drive section. The wings are fully positionable, as is the boarding ramp, wing cannons, and fully retracting landing gear. The MOC borrowed the basic head design from the UCS model but is 1.5 times larger and much more faithful to the source material. This MOC took a week to build, with particular challenges in the wing fold mechanism and landing gear. Would love to hear feedback! http://mocpages.com/moc.php/380384

  21. Hi all, I wanted to present this MOC that I built originally for the Evolved contest on FBTB but due to various circumstances, I could not complete it on time. Anyway, I thought it was a brilliant contest idea and therefore I decided to complete my MOC eventually. The most important aspect of a MOC contest is not winning. It is not even participating, but it is definitively building one's own creations. :D Therefore, please let me present you my Sheathipede-class transport shuttle Evolved. Thirty years after the fall of Palpatine, the First Order is running at full speed its rearmament program. In order to be able to quickly ship troops to all corners of the known and unknown galaxy, the First Order looks toward reliable, effective, multi-purpose transport ships providing a flexible and large freight capacity. Some of the First Orders engineers decided to base their design on an old separatist shuttle dating from the Clone Wars: the Sheathipede. And they made it evolve...

  22. Location: E11 - The Fascini Cluster Tags: Vehicle, Spaceship, Land Vehicle, Exploration, Civil --Weekly Explorer's Transmission-- --Log of Eagle-Eye Silver-- --12 Oktobrinali 3815-- After Kawashita spent some time mining Sector E11, a treaty was struck to share the awesomnium-rich asteroid field between Kawashita and Octan Corp. The sharing agreement gives Octan Corp. the opportunity to acquire the precious resource. I’ve been piloting an OT-14 Zelus dropship-style shuttle this past week making cargo runs between the large asteroids in the Fascini Cluster. It’s fairly menial work, confirming a different manifest a few times a day and running between asteroid and fleet endlessly. At least the Zelus is nimble and quick. The four Pegasus TFG thrusters are controlled independently by the flight control computer and that vectoring makes for impressive maneuverability for landing and docking as well as at high speed. There’re even rumors of Octan SpecOps modifying some of these shuttles for their use, and of course painting them black. After piloting this thing for a week, I can certainly see the appeal. --End-- I really need to build more in the week! More pics tomorrow-ish, I need some sleep...
  23. Hi All, Back in february I started to work with LEGO trains again, after many years. One thing I wanted, was to see if I could make a train wagon to transport the Shuttles (set 10231) orange tank! I don't have any Maersk trains or anything like it, but anyway, the build started. So, after some trials and errors, I ended up with this design: IMG_0502 by Marook, on Flickr It's basically two ends with a long rod inbetween, normally seen on some huge trucks with special transport (like windmill parts etc..) The end looks like this, up close: IMG_0503 by Marook, on Flickr And here is the middle facing side: IMG_0504 by Marook, on Flickr Loaded, it looks like this: IMG_0505 by Marook, on Flickr IMG_0507 by Marook, on Flickr As far as I could meassure, it's 47 studs long without the tank loaded. I still need something to fix the tank during transport, but it's actually quite stable, and runs LEGO curves fine.. Hope you like it..

    [MOC] Upsilon-class Lander

    Figured I wanted to make somethin' like a Sentinel-class Shuttle to carry all the shiny stormtroopers I got for Christmas, but since 1. I don't have the correct color or shape of colors to make a perfect Sentinel and 2. I also wanted my shuttle to carry AT-STs, I decided to go my own way with this. So, here is construction log one: As you can see, I have a tidy little gearbox that the wings are attatched to. Here's the crank that operates it (I'll turn it in to something prettier later.) And here's with the wings folded down. That's it for today! Come back tomorrow for more!
