obijon posted a topic in LEGO Star WarsNEW MODELS WILL APPEAR IN THE REPLIES TO THIS THREAD Models now included in this thread: Night Buzzard Tie Dagger Bestoon Legacy UA-TT DN-25 Treadable Sea Skiff Fortitude "Lucky Lander" (NEW) NIGHT BUZZARD Hi all To celebrate the home release of Ep. IX here is one of the interesting vehicles form the movie. The Night Buzzard was a modified Oubliette-class transport used by the Knights of Ren. The Knights made several alterations to the Night Buzzard to better suit their tastes, such as altering the vessel's appearance to match their dark side aesthetic. The vessel's engines were also crudely modified to generate more thrust, although this took a toll on the insulation baffles, causing the Buzzard to spew noxious gas as it flew. It was well armed, with a forward laser cannon turret, a mid ship laser cannon turret, a rear heavy laser cannon turret, and rear-facing fixed laser cannons. The Night Buzzard served as the home of the Knights of Ren, as well as their transport. I have got most of the features in to this little model, although no noxious gas I’m afraid! The angles of the sides and front have been achieved by using hinge bricks. They just happened to fit together nicely after a bit of playing around. It is a little bigger than maybe I would have liked but the build method dictated that but apart from that I am really pleased with how this one turned out. It still fits on the display stand with the Knight Of Ren minifigure so it is not massive! I hope everyone is well in these trying times. Luckily LEGO can keep us busy for a while. Let me know what you think. Jon
Hi all I thought I would take a break from Resistance models and publish something more interesting/popular. This has actually, for the most part, been built for a while but I was just waiting for those black pointed 2 x 4 wedge plates from Bricklink from the official Sith Fighter set. The TIE/dg starfighter, also known as the TIE dagger, or the Sith TIE fighter, was a type of Sith affiliated TIE line starship that was forged in secret by forces under the command of the reborn Emperor Palpatine and seen in Ep. IX during the Battle of Exogol. The new pointed wedge plates are perfect this little ship. They also come in dark red and I was toying with adding some of these to the model to add the red edges to the panels but to hide them to show the right amount of red would have made the panels 3 studs thick and too wide so i ditched that idea. I have managed to add the little gap between the panels and the light grey part at the back from the original design of the ship. I have done this using clip plates and the 1 x1 round plate with bar. Apart from that it is a simple build and once again it is on display with a minifig - the Sith Trooper. Hope you like it. Jon
