  1. Hello again everyone This time I present my last (I can’t think of anything else to build?) model from Solo – Han’s Landspeeder. Han Solo acquired his overpowered Mobquet M-68 Landspeeder under circumstances he doesn’t care to explain. 😉 The M-68 is a favorite of Corellian speeder enthusiasts, as its repulsorlift generator is easily modified and overcharged. This was quite a tricky little build to keep the overall shape and sleekness in this scale. It is supposed to resemble a sports car after all. The first problem I came across was the windshield. 1x1 clear cheese slopes looked too small and the 1x2 panel was just too upright and looked terrible. In the end I managed to use some slopes which have been turned on their ends. They are attached using bricks with a stud on the side and a tile on the studs of the slopes. Luckily it fits perfectly in the space for them. Another part was the “spoiler” at the back. Luckily those new 1x1 brackets came in dark blue! Then the engines. I went through a few different versions before finally using this: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=11458&C=63#T=C&C=63 These pieces are then attached using 2 headlight bricks in the main body of the model and then attaching another 2 to these to be able to attach the above piece. Anyway, I think this model looks pretty good if I do say so myself, nice and sleek! Hope you like it. Jon
  2. Hi again everyone The Imperial Arrestor Cruiser first appeared in the Star Wars canon in the 2018 film Solo: A Star Wars Story, barely visible in an Imperial recruitment film. However, in the script for Solo, the Millennium Falcon was at one point to be captured by a tractor beam ship, which was developed into the Arrestor Cruiser. However, this full appearance in the film was eventually cut but can be seen in a deleted scene where Han crashes his Tie Fighter. A scene I wish they had kept in. Colin Cantwell originally pitched the design of what would become the Imperial Arrestor Cruiser directly to George Lucas, for use in the 1977 movie Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, although it was ultimately discarded in favor of the Star Destroyer. I built this model fairly quickly, again in between finishing other models. It is a fairly simple design with the only complicated part the “nose”. It needed to be slightly tapered and bricks would just not cut it. I have attached this using clip tiles and handle plates to attach the side tiles. I have also then used door rail plates to close the gap at the front. Anyway, here is the model. Jon
  3. Hello everyone! I'm finally here to show my simple modifications for the 75219 Imperial AT-Hauler set. Since the first concept pictures of this model leaked, I wanted it in Lego form. I really liked the overall look and the idea of a smaller imperial cargo ship, which could bring the walkers into battles. When the pics of the actual set released, it received a lot of criticism for its size and colour. I liked the appearance of the set, looked sturdy and I'm quiet liked the idea of the chosed colours. Probably when the build was designed, they had concept arts, where the final colour of the ship wasn't clear and I think the light bluish gray parts with white works well for very light gray, and it looks good with Imperial shuttles and Landing Crafts. It's not as big problem as the color of Kylo's Shuttle. Based on the official images, I have only 2 problems with the model. The first is the technic hook builds to hold the cargo, which is a decent play feature, but nut too accurate and doesn't look good too. The other problem I had, was the fact that only one figure could fit in the relatively big looking cockpit. As the instructions released for this set, I started working on this modification. Firstly I build one of the "arm" of the ship in LDD to see how could I fit the winches. I usually like to the minimum added parts when I modifying a set. When the LDD file for the whole set became available in the Official LEGO Sets made in LDD, I used that to finalizing the arms and started to make more room in the cockpit. I wanted to make big improvement with as fewer changes as possible. So here is it: Tutorial Winches Here is the original build at the beggining: For this modification you'll need this coupple parts. The first move is to remove the whole technic mechanism, which is part of the main play feature. For that, as first step, the plates from all three sides of both arms needs to remove. After that you could take apart the technic axles inside. I'll use a couple of pieces from the cargo, which is included in the set and spare parts as well. And here are all parts from the technic mechanism. The next step is to installing the string and the winch system, so firstly you secure the hooks to both strings with a knot. Than you have to lace through the string in the holes of the two light bluish gray L shaped pieces. You need use only the first two holes, after that you could pull the free ends of the strings out to sideways. The next thing to build is the winches, and its needs these parts. As the space is limited, we need the smallest parts what could use for its task. Because of that, the red technic bush will be our winch drum. You could lace the string trough the two opening of the bush and then you could put it on the axle. For placing this small assembly the long gray technic brick need to be removed from its place. You put together the two part and then you secure the winch drum with two light gray 1x3 liftarm and one small gray bush. You put back the whole thing to the arm and do the same thing on the other side. After that the plate sidings could go back to the sides of the arms and the you can put the steering wheel pieces to the dark gray axles. So here is the ship with the working winches, you could operate them by turning the steering wheels on the sides of the "wings". In the next step we remove the bigger technic panels and need to chang the position of the technic pieces on it. After you put back it to the underside of the wings, you can see that these change not only moves them down by 1 brick, but it becomes a stop to the wings, when you fold it in flight position. That doesn't let the wing to fold the wings to low, wich was another big problem of the original model. On these two pics you can see how the original one(left) is much lower than the modified one(right) Than comes a couple small details. You can add the smaller technic panels to the bigger ones and put dark gray pin connectors to the four exposed tan pins of the landing gears. And these parts can use on the front ends of the wings. Cockpit The problem with the cockpit is that it's designed to be very sturdy and solid, but unfortunately that makes the inside small. The main thing you could do is lowering the floor of it, but for that we need to take apart the whole structure. From the side panels we have to take off the black curved pieces, because they are in the way of the figures arms. The next thing to do is to put the gray wedges to the insides of the sidepanels from the outsides of them. OntThe original design, when you close the roof of the cockpit, it moves the sides out. With the wedges inside makes the side panels to reach the windshield and the distance between them allows the roof to fold properly. After the cockpit is completely taken apart, we need to rebuild its floor. With lower floor and thinner sides, we could fitt more figures inside, so we add a couple smal black panel pieces from the cargo container build and these will be our seats. In the original set the stickers for the controplanels is placed on a slope and on a tile, but I wanted to use two slopes(inspired by the cockpit of the set 75094), so I placed the sticker on a 2x3 black slope instead of the tile. After the floor is finished we need to rebuild the ship the same way as we disassembled it. So here is the final model. I'm very satisfied with this model. The winches working good and the look of the ship improved well. The cockpit could fit four minifigures total, it's a little bit crowded, but does its job. You could operate the winches very easy and with the two hooks you can lift up a lot of different things. If you needs mor stability to your cargo, then you can pull out a loop of the strings at the bottom of the wings, and you could hook those loops to a couple added pieces. Comparison with the oroginal(left): These are the leftover parts from the set: I didn't want to put the stickers to the cargo container, because they are such a cool designs and I want to use them in further MOCs, so I placed them on a couple of tiles. I really hope, you liked this small modification. The only thing, that I'm planning to design is a technic structure, what can grab the latest AT-ST. You can find my full album: Here
  4. Hello again everyone This time I present a MOD rather than a full MOC – a mod of the 30498 AT-Hauler polybag which I tinkered with over the Christmas break. I quite liked the overall design and construction of this but there were a few things that I felt needed changing: · Changed it from white to grey. Think grey is better fitting for a cargo vessel and for most vessels in Star Wars. · Added the gantry underneath. A simple addition with 4 extra parts which I am surprised were not included in the original. · Beefed up the lifting arms as they looked too thin. · The big one – the cockpit. This is what made me want to MOD the polybag in the first place. The use of the slope in the polybag is a bit lazy so I have built this using bricks with studs on the side and wedge plates. · And like all my other models a display stand with Rio Durant minifig. More new and original stuff soon. Jon
  5. Hi Guys! It's already 2 months ago I made this MOC but I forget to share here with you so... I show you my MOC of the AT-DT! I let you watch the showcase video. And the quick scene I made for a LEGO Convention. Free PDF Instructions are available on Rebrickable : https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-18202/BricksFeeder/at-dt-walker/ Don't forget to mention me if you use this design. ) Let me know what you think about! See you soon!
  6. This is a modified version of 75193, designed to look like the Millennium Falcon as seen in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Featuring its signature blue and white color scheme, this model includes a Lando Calrissian minifigure that can be seated in the cockpit as well as a detachable front pod. Please leave your comments or suggestions below! I'd love to hear what people think of my creations!
  7. Hi guys! This is my minifig’s scaled ARATECH C-PH Patrol Speeder bike used by the Imperial Patrol troopers.

    Conveyex Transport MOC (LDD)

    Pictures of the new Conveyex Transport Set are on youtube for about an hour now which is a nice set. I´ve built a model of it two days ago. Because this was my first project completly built with LDD and I´m not very familiar with LDD, I´ve only built the upper half of the train and without any tracks. The train itself: The inside of the cockpit: The inside of one the waggons: A Coaxium Storing-Box: UPDATE: Edited Trail and second train (for more pictures look at my comment below)
  9. Hi Guys, here is a new 48x48 SOLO: A Star Wars Story MOC. It shows Han's Mission ( to steal Coaxium) on Kessel. I hope you recognize the scene and I hope you like it, please let me know ;) SOLO: A Star Wars Story - The Spice Mines of Kessel by KevFett2011, auf Flickr SOLO: A Star Wars Story - The Spice Mines of Kessel by KevFett2011, auf Flickr SOLO: A Star Wars Story - The Spice Mines of Kessel by KevFett2011, auf Flickr Greetings KevFett2011
  10. Hi again everyone To celebrate the recent release of Solo (i must admit I have not seen it yet) I decided to build a Millennium Falcon in its honour. I decided to base it on the MINI model which came with the Lego Star Wars magazine: But in true Lando fashion I decided to pimp his ride back to the state it was in before Han got his grubby mits on her. The original model is a nice size for a mini with the saucer section six studs wide. 8 studs and you start getting a much larger model. I have changed it to white with blue, changed the radar dish to be flat, changed the gun and added the cargo pod at the front as well as a few other changes which add a bit more shape to the back section. and as usual on display with Lando planets styling and profiling: Let me know what you think. Jon
  11. Microfighters are back again. This ist my entry for the "Han Solo" Contest on RogueBricks.de Because there were only two weeks to build the MOC, I decided to build in my favourite scale, the MICROFIGHTER scale. Hope you like the MOC and the Movie ;-) best regards Boba
  12. Not one to start small for a few weeks now I've been working on flushing out the Echo Base Hanger display I want to build for my UCS Millennium Falcon. I've been planning this since the set was announced but couldn't really start till I had the set in hand to base everything off. It will be in a glass coffee table I'll be building to display it. The planned layout is currently 47.5" by 41.75" but I may go to 47.5" x 47.5". I'm going to use Stricklybricks 50x50 baseplates with one set getting trimmed down. I'm trying to be as accurate as possible and get all the little details I'm finding as I research that I haven't seen before. This will also display some of the rest of my collection so the ships inside will be a mix besides the Falcon. My 99 X-Wing and probably one of Cehnot's beauties and 4 different official speeder sets spanning the years. I'm using Migui94's Falcon as a placeholder as I work to confirm sizing in addition to the physical test layout I have set up. I see that last week Cehnot also started basically the same project with similar goals but he is going for the whole hanger while I only have room for some of it with size limitation. Can't wait to see his take shape and maybe collaborate on a few elements. I'm building in Stud.io first since I don't have the money to start buying all the bricks and figure it out by physical trial and error. So to get started with where I am at here is an over view of the layout. I have a lot of detailing to do on the walls but I've been waiting till I had the structural strength and sizing dialed in first as I kept tweaking. I originally had 2 full bays but they wouldn't hold an X-Wing so I widened it and also ended up raising them to fit the vents. This top down view with the yellow fence shows the 41" width. and the potential space if I expand to 47". I'm going to curve the wall behind the Falcon some more but I'm not going to go all the way around to keep the sides of the Falcon visible through the sides of the table. This front view of the bay shows the vents in the top of the bays. My current thought was stickers to detail the vents but i will probably revisit them to look ate a brick based option but scale is a limit here. The Cat Walk for the X-Wings is an item that has been done but lacking in detail. I used Enderman eye plates for the side detailing. The current support beam X cross braces are temporary. After much thinking and tinkering I decided to design and print custom pieces to go there. The 3L bar on top will be cut in half to finish the top rail on the ends. I do like Cehnot's top rail better though and may try to rework mine based on his. Some small detail builds I have are the (quite silly) Treadwell 1016 droid briefly seen twice (somehow it gets on top of the Falcon with treads...). I also have a fuel tanker cart seen between the Falcon and the X-Wing. The floor light took days to get the scale right and try to be easily lit from below. The plan it to get vinyl stickers for the sides to cover the trans-clear plates then put an LED under them trough a hole in the baseplate. Not shown here is that the front 1x2 plate is clear while the 2 under the slope grills are trans med blue to get the right light out the back. I have lots more to do but finally felt I had enough to start sharing. Any suggestions on how to improve something are welcome! I will also be overhauling the Falcon itself to be more ESB accurate. Haven't yet decided on adding an interior since it will be in a closed display. -JF140/Cody
  13. So I've been going through old minifigures from the Star Wars theme and found miifigs like Kit Fisto and Plo Koon. The paint on them isn't there anymore. Any ideas on what to do?
  14. I’ve been busy with this little guy since I saw the leaked Solo poster, the one with the four characters and the tiny, pixelated hint of the new Falcon to one side. At first didn’t like the look of the new Falcon in that leaked Lego set image but on the poster it reminded me of the ship from Flight of The Navigator, and who doesn’t love that! But I guess if you’re going to mess with an icon you’ve got to do a really good job, we’ll find out soon enough how popular it is but I think this could look pretty sleek in the film. However they explain away the change of shape I took it as something bolted on the front (or just there originally and eventually removed) that is more or less a spoiler with a really nice GPS. I've always wanted to make a mini Falcon using the cockpit from the micro fighter and here it is. The gps-spoiler just slots in, so apart from the colours and dish it’s a quick job to change it between its original and Kessel Run look. I built the top and bottom separately, studs-out so I could add those Tie cockpit turrets (big thanks to RickJockey whose idea I’ve shamelessly pinched!) but I think it adds to the rounded the shape overall and turned out to be a neat and solid way to build anyway. I was really pleased with finding the 90’s octagonal slope part which I originally just bought in dark grey because it was really cheap, but last week I discovered that there’s only one person on Bricklink selling it in light grey and they won’t take orders for less than £100, so annoyingly the dark part stands out a bit. If anyone’s got any suggestions for different ways of building the tunnel I’d be grateful to hear them, otherwise it will just be great to hear what you think of the MOC! https://imgur.com/gallery/u79xD
  15. Hi everyone, this is my first MOC and my entry for the Future of SW Contest (small category) - 16 x 16 studs. A scene from Episode VII: A family day The years pass, the Empire has been defeated and the New Republic rised, we are in the 15 ABY. The Solo family meets together in front of the fireplace; the Solo twins show that they have talent for the Force and "Uncle" Luke is quite happy of this. My Flickr album, soon there will be a post about my creation on Life in a brick C&C are always welcome and hope you like
