    [MOC] Midi-Scale TIE Advanced

    As an absolute fan of the original trilogy, I had to build more Empire ships in Midi-Scale. I decided to start with my favorite TIE model, the TIE Advanced, in Microfig scale. This 496-piece TIE Advanced features a fully SNOT and detailed surface. It also includes rear engine thrusters at the back of the cockpit dome. Most importantly, being able to design smooth but razor thin wings was the key to making this build look proportionate and realistic. The same applies for the rear section of the fuselage which, being only 1 tile-high, ended up looking just a thin as the original prop model. Logically, the ship scales well to my previous TIE Reaper - I'll keep exploring more of these in the same scale, and maybe one day have a whole fleet of Midi TIE ships! ► Instructions will be available at Rebrickable soon.

  2. TIE Interceptor™ (ROTJ 40th Anniversary Product Concept) By Rui Miguel “Greetings exalted ones” From the Galaxy Far Far Away I bring you the TIE Interceptor. One of my favourite Empire Starfighters from Star Wars. When I was 12 years old in 2006 I remember receiving on my birthday the set 6206, it was a blast back then, but little did I know it would be the last time seeing another release of this specific class. In 2023, The Return of The Jedi will be celebrating its 40th anniversary so I asked myself: what would a TIE Interceptor look like nowadays? I feel like this is one of those long overdue Star Wars vehicles, us LEGO fans hope to see with a modern take and add to our collections. This is my attempt to fill that gap in your collection. As with my previous projects, I brought into my MOC the same design process in order to present a product concept that could identify with the official LEGO product standards. Bellow you can get access to the PDF file of the building instructions and the Bricklink studio file of the model (without minifigures). You can upload to Bricklink and generate a wanted list of LEGO parts needed to order. Download Links (Google Drive): - PDF Building Instructions (23 MB) Here - Bricklink Studio file (375 KB) Here Features: - 545 pcs (Starfighter and Stand only) - Removable and playable Starfighter - Stand display - Printed tile not included - 4x Spring Shooter Darts I'm very happy to finally be able to share this with fellow LEGO Star Wars fans and I hope my MOC inspires LEGO to consider making a TIE Interceptor in the future, that would be awesome. If you have the opportunity to build my version and add it to your collection I hope you have a fun experience while building, playing and displaying 😉 Until the next project, May The Force Be With You If you haven't, check out my other projects SDCC Ghost Rider Midnight Race Utapau Defense - Crab droid

    Tie Bomber (updated pods)

    Update: as requested, more detail has been added to the pods! Here's a downscaled tie bomber! It's about 3/4 minifigure scale, and has 632 pieces. If you bricklink it, it will cost about $90. There is a hole in the bottom for bombs to drop out of. The bombs are attached to a rapid shooter, and by rotating the back of the bomber, the bombs fall out. The bomb dropping assembly can be detached so that it can be reloaded easily. There's also room for a pilot in the other pod, which has a roof that can be detached I hope you like my moc!

    [MOC] TIE Interceptor

    Hi everyone! today I want to show you my new, little MOC :) TIE Interceptor 853 parts with display stand This is another TIE in my collection, I built it in a few days. I was based on my previous Outland TIE Fighter. I really like the Interceptor, I really like its aggressive and dynamic appearance PDF Instructions is ready if you are intrested ask me on kozlowski.michal86@gmail.com Project is also available on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-113652/EDGE OF BRICKS/tie-interceptor/#details More on my youtube here:
  5. Hey everyone, I'm glad to present you my latest Midi-Scale MOC, the TIE Reaper from Rogue One. The TIE Reaper drew my attention when I discovered Doug Chiang’s wonderful concept art of the ship. The typical empire-like, agressive and angular look of it instantly reminded me of my favorite vehicles from the movie. The main features of this design are: fully SNOT build from top to bottom, accurate proportions, studio model / prop look, removable stand and working ramp. Getting all the very complex angles and shapes, while maximizing the SNOT look, led to a very intricate Midi-Scale build. My main goal wasn’t “swooshability”, but making a convincing, display-only build. Although not intended for play, it can be easily moved around with or without its stand, and safely held from below. ► Instructions for the TIE Reaper are available for purchase (620-page PDF). If you'd like to buy them, hit me up at flyinspace.mocs@gmail.com All photos in my Flickr album. Hope you guys enjoy it! FlyInSpace Flickr ♦ Instagram ♦ Reddit ♦ Rebrickable

    [MOC] First Order TIE Whisper

    Hi! Design of my new MOC is ready! First Order TIE Interceptor - UPDATE 13 Oct 2019, New design and official name - TIE WHISPER! from Episode 9 - The Rise of Skywalker Main functions: - 940 pieces, - Minifig scale, - 1 minifigures - display stand can be connected - a lot of details Instructions PDF file - read description on my YouTube movie, link below. Review on my YouTube channel - Edge of Bricks [ENG Subtitles]
  7. 2021 remake! Initially it started as a minor update to fix few issues, most notably weak guns/windshield attachment, but over time scope of the changes grew and grew and grew. Changes: - Cockpit now can has space for the pilot in any type of the helmet, including the grossly oversized one; - Cockpit interior now features new controls layout and few more details; the "bowtie" detail taken almost 1:1 from 20feet's variant, with a slight modificiation to make it match the intended "flow' of the cockpit a bit more to my liking. Big thanks here! - gun and windscreen attachment is redone to be much more solid; though this particular change was already implemented in First Order TIEs; - top dish was replaced to use 4x4 one. This is a bit controversional, but bricklink prices for the 6x6 one are extreme, because they appeared on only one set some time ago. 4x4 is much more popular and so this is a better option for a model which is supposed to be built by other people too. - side struts were redone to resemble original ones a bit more. I had great help here from 20feet who helped me to go through few ideas and find one which is a nice compromise between screen accuracy and fitting rest of the ship's styling. Thanks again! - side struts were made longer, as I made a slight scaling mistake in the original TF. - wing/panels are basically an entirely new build. The shape, which has proven to be a little bit controversional due to being much more rectangular, is more similar to what movie and Rogue Squadrons game TIEs are using. I know it is not 100% perfect and a bit too rectangular, but this particular layout enabled me to use most of 1x2 grille bricks, aside from the slopes. I believe it is a good trade-off and the angle is definitely closer to the original, even if wrong in the other direction now. - I also tried 20feet's vertical stacked bricks idea and it looks great - on black background. It is included in the instructions pack, and is probably the best choice for people who will display the ship against black background. Otherwise, gaps between bricks are quite noticeable. Still - a super interesting idea and one which got implemented! - New wing cores: Hexagonal, finally! Again thanks for 20feet's insistence on making them better! I thought my original idea was good enough but it was worth pushing a bit more! - New color variant! This was Charlie's idea (one of Brickvault leads) and I was skeptical even after building it. Thankfully, he insisted and so, over time, this variant grew on me to the point that I now believe it is the best looking one. It is a bit assymetrical but overall a compromise worth doing! - New universal stand debiuts here, and I intend to use it - in various similar versions - for all future ships in this size. So, yeah. Quite a remake. I apologize for delaying it this much, especially after repeatedly telling people the update is "soon". Sorry. This is the first time since 2019 where I finally was able to get everything right. Since T/F shares almost entire core with the T/I, I redid it too: Interceptor shares most of the changes with the Fighter. Initially I did not want to redo the panels - I thought they were perfect, but, well, yeah. They were not. Having Rogue Squadrons 3d models as the sources enabled me to get proper dimensions finally. Ultimately, the panels simply required lenghtening the back part and making those weird offset guns at the tips. I still believe it is an odd choice, but nonetheless, I tried to replicate it. The red one is a Royal Guard TIE Interceptor and aside from the obvious new racey paint scheme, it also features smaller additions to the wings. I tried to keep the angles same as on the main panels, which was quite a challenge, but eventually it ended up being perfectly possible. At this rate, 3.0 is scheduled for release around 2024. Let's place bets on what will change, and please tell me what's the weakest part of those designs, so I can focus on them in the future! I want to ditch 3x3 dome pieces as they clog up the interior, and this probably will be the focus of 3.0 - if I get some good ideas to try. And who knows, maybe I'll be able to make a perfect T/F wing panel this time? --------------------- Yet another LEGO TIE Fighter. How far can this classic design be pushed? How many ways are there to build an eye sandwitched by hexagonal solar panels? Is there a perfect design already? This is where beauty of LEGO as form of modelling strikes with full power, as answers to these questions are: Very far, infinite ways, and no, there is no perfect design available and never will be. In 2014 I have built this: It worked, and I think for 2014 and what was available back then, it was pretty good. It had obvious flaw though: no space for a minifigure, and it was also a little too small in scale. I was limited mostly by the fact there were no proper cockpit pieces, and my attempt with literally the only other one was... not spectacular, not to mention it needed painting with A LOT patience required. The new model takes advantage of this cockpit piece, which allowed me to push that original 2014 design further. I know, I am late to the party, years - literally - behind other designers of great TIE models, like Bricks Feeder or Rebel Builder, yet I hope I can bring something new into the T/F building scene. Originally I thought I would just stretch the build here and there but no, heheh, no way. Literally the only unchanged parts are the eight quarter (or one-eighter?) dome pieces, which are to me still the only way to have smooth and roughly spherical design without holes all around. Unfortunately when we look at a closeup of a real movie-filming model of the T/F we see how far are we from true modelling but I say we're collectively inching towards it pretty nicely. I have said this plenty of times but original designers of TIE Fighters really did all they could to make them unbuildable properly, naturally unknowingly - who would think adult guys 30 years in the future would try to recreate the design using perhaps the weirdest medium available?. The T/F is just a sphere, two struts and two flat hexes. Except: 6-diameter central cokcpit piece would require a 9-diameter ball, minifig-scaled TIE would require an 8-diameter ball and don't even get me started on sources for TIEs dimensions. If you think that Illustrated Guide To Star Wars vehicles is helpful, well, not much. I dare to say this book did awfully lot of harm to LEGO Star Wars MOCing scene. So is my TIE perfect? No, not yet. I promise though, I did all I could to make it as good as possible, with no compromises made. And this time it houses a minifig! The design is super sturdy to my standards, nicely swooshable - for a reason, but I will get to that later. Naturally having a T/F built opens a way towards the Interceptor, which for me is among the best looking spaceship designs in any sci-fi. While the core design is similar, the ball has some differences, mostly to accomodate longer struts. This is because LEGO curiously didn't develop 2x9 plates and for once I was in a situation where I can't really replace 2x9 plate with anything without compromising structural integrity. Having that solved I went onto the wing design and OH GOD INTERNET WHAT HAVE YOU DONE. If anyone knows angle on the panels and can prove it, gets a free beer. With shipping. Because the wings are angled in all dimensions, good luck guessing proper values from photos. Because of the IGTSWV book, half of the models (and I don't even mean LEGO models) existing are wrong. And then because of SW animated series, the other half of the models are also wrong... ...so my source of reference was this: Then after having all that done, I experienced another unexpected problem: The ship is top-heavy and won't stand straight. I added tiny legs on the bottom edges of wings which help a bit, and because the design is quite sturdy, the T/I requires no stand. There you have it. Yet another T/F and T/I. I hope you like the designs and I hope I managed to introduce something new to the very competitive scene. Enjoy! ...but wait, there is more! I would not build these models if not a commission request from BrickVault: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrhb3SP2lZBgguLHIWWuHOQ Originally it was meant to be just a few TIE models based on the 2014 design I had, just LDD files, but over time we developed a much more interesting designs and... instructions for each of them! The instructions are paid and please understand, it took weeks to develop them, error-proof, make the experience enjoyable and builds sturdy enough to be handled easily. Normally I do not make instructions, as I prefer to build with real bricks than to do electronic designs. The instructions are designed to have dozens of simple to follow steps with just few pieces per step, have submodels where needed, parts list for each step and a total bill of parts at the beginning. Additionally, in few places, there are notes to watch out for some particular details. I can fully understand now what LEGO designers go through and I can imagine amount of effort required for making instructions for larger and more complicated designs. I am pretty sure it took more time to design instructions for the recent UCS Millennium Falcon than to design the model itself. Thanks for watching and Happy New Year!
  8. Hello, I'm trying to build a TIE/wi Whisper for Rebrickable but I can't quite figure out the brick stacking method. Can someone please help me? Thanks!

    [MOC] Outland TIE Fighter

    Hi! A long time ago I watched episode 7 of The Mandalorian series, where appeared ... OUTLAND TIE FIGHTER I immediately added it to my "to do list" After a long time and many other MOCs, the time has come for TIE - for the Empire! I was building the project for a few weeks - it was not easy because I decided to use a new 3x3 round corner in it. I wanted to do something different, there are so many TIE projects already, it's hard to come up with something new. Project contains 914 parts. This is the Outland version - it has foldable wings. There are a few good mechanisms, I improved it, TJ Lego Room showed it some time ago. I added technic liftarms, changed a few other things. Landing gears is an additional stand - I didn't want to install it permanently in the cabin. This would worsen its appearance and weaken the structure. More on my youtube, link below. Project is also available on Rebrickable here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-72054/EDGE OF BRICKS/outland-tie/#details

    TIE/br Heavy Starfighter

    Hello there! I would like to present to you my first serious MOC: the TIE/rb Imperial Starfighter, also known as the TIE Brute. A variant of the good old TIE as seen in Solo: A Star Wars Story – a not-so-great film, but overflowing with marvellous design language. I loved the lumbering, asymmetric design from the first sight. This heavy starfighter could only be seen in the Kessel Run scene for a few seconds altogether, in rapid motion and bad lighting; conditions that make translating the design into Lego harder, but at the same time more forgiving. Lego never bothered to release an official set (the set wave from Solo included a wonderful version of the base TIE, which took the ‘TIE slot’ in the Lego portfolio for the following few years), and there is a handful of playscale MOCs around, smaller than what I was looking for. The source material was extremely scarce: a few freeze-frames and two-three different toy designs. Being a devoted fan of Jerac’s TIE family, I tried to make the fighter blend in among the rest of the armada, while still maintaining the exaggerated proportions of the original: the enlarged cockpit constructed with the 4x4 quarter-dome bricks and ‘arms’ fitted with additional armour. However, the most notable section of the Brute is of course the additional gun pod, armed with two large cannons. According to one of the Star Wars Visual Guides, this section had the ability to swivel. It was quite a challenge to incorporate this function while maintaining the stability of the build. After a lot of failed attempts, the final design comes down to a surprisingly modest, but stable connection. Moreover, the swivelling movement of the battery does not happen by hand – instead, it is transmitted from turning of the large, round nozzle at the rear of the main cockpit. The cockpit seats two crew members: a pilot and a gunner. The model is minifigure-scale and comprises of 1780 elements. As a beginner MOC designer, I’ll be grateful for your comments and advice. Anyone who would like to rebuild this design themselves is invited to brickvault.toys , where the building instructions and the part list can be found.
  11. Hi, I made this mini MOC using invisible thread for magic (almost invisible, thinner than human hair) and magnetic levitation platform, hope you like it. Same technique:
  12. Hello all! This is my first attempt at a UCS style MOC. I've been wanting to redo all my playset Star Wars sets, so I decided to start with the TIE Fighter, and I am really happy with the results. If you want to get the instructions, I posted them on ReBrickable for download. Here is the model from the front and back: And here it is with my other UCS sets: For those who are interested, here is some of the earlier versions of the model. First, this is what I dubbed the fat TIE. Then, the wings got slimmed down. At this point they were still plates instead of bricks. This was the last iteration before I built the physical model. It looks a lot like the final version, but it could not support its own weight, so the cockpit and arms were completely changed.
  13. 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!

    [MOC] TIE Bomber

    The third model in my classic imperial TIE class ships line up. Both hulls are based and joint together with a technic frame which makes the model rigid and solid. The panels are built with the technique I've introduced in my TIE Interceptor. That makes the upper and lower parts of them locked securely in place and with the right angles, as I pay much attention to the proportions. All of the details are intentional - they are supposed to resemble the real built of this very interesting ship in Star Wars universum. Shaping of the front of the bomb hull was obviously inspired by Jerac (credits) yet it is definitely different built. It is pretty heavy as for its size - the piece count is 1643. There is a tight space for a minifig pilot in the cockpit. More pics on my flickr account here. If you like it, you may find pdf step-by-step instructions on rebrickable.

    [WIP] UCS TIE Variants (All of Them)

    I've been away for a little while (again), but I've been busily working on some designs for my UCS TIE project. First up is a model I had been avoiding for a long while, the iconic standard TIE Fighter. Overall I really like this design, but the cockpit ball could use some work. It's decidedly more curved than any other TIE I've done, but is a bit too cylindrical, as opposed to spherical like it should be. I really don't like the sloped method used by TLG in the official TIE Interceptor and TIE Advanced, and this curved method allows for a SNOTed pylon, which I really like a lot. Once the venerable TIE Fighter was done, it opened up a lot of variations on the theme. Like the TIE Experimental M1. And the TIE Experimental M2. And once I had started doing TIE Experimentals, I just had to do all of them. TIE Experimental M3 TIE Experimental M4 TIE Experimental M5 And then I realized that the M3 was the perfect starting point for the Emporer's Royal Guard Interceptor Next came one of my favorite TIE variants, the Lancet Aerial Bombardment. Needing a break from the starfighters, I next moved on to the TIE AP-1, also known as the TIE Mauler. And that led into the Century Tank, or TIE Crawler. I did a few of the odd-ball shaped TIEs next, the TIE Lambda and the TIE Raptor. At this point I returned to the standard TIE variants, starting with the TIE Fire Control. Followed by the TIE Reconnaissance, and the TIE Ground Targeting. Next up is one of the more unique shaped TIEs, the TIE Scout. Then for something completely different, the TIE Neutralizer. It was finally time to tackle the Bomber variants, starting with the TIE Electronic Warfare. Then came the TIE Heavy Bomber the TIE Interdictor the TIE Hammer and finally the TIE Lander The Lander needed two renders, just to shhow off the landing skids I had designed. The TIE Shadow Squadron was next on my radar. After that came the TIE Sentinel Then I finished up the Standard TIE variants with the TIE Vanguard and 'completed' the TIE project with the Nsiss Chiss-Class Clawcraft. I say 'completed' because, even though I've created a model for every variant I intend to, there is always room to improve them. So I looked at the older models I had made, and realized that they didn't age well next to the new methods I was using now. So I set about re-designing them. First was the TIE Bomber the TIE Boarding Craft and the TIE Shuttle. The TIE Predator got a cockpit update, but I couldn't find a combination of slopes that I liked for the wings, so the old design has to do. The trio of the TIE Clutch TIE Phantom and TIE Shadow received updates, though the main hulls remained from the old versions. The last five all received complete make-overs, starting with the TIE Hunter. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a mechanism to make the wings open and close. Then came the TIE Avenger TIE Aggressor TIE Oppressor and last but not least, the TIE Torpedo Bomber The only two original models that have not gotten a facelift are the Scimitar Bomber and the TIE Droid The Droid's wing angle makes it very difficult to brick-build the wings while keeping the pylons from looking like crap warmed over. The Scimitar's complex wing design doesn't lend itself readily to a brick-built design, and the hull I am extremely happy with. None of these new designs have been built yet. I believe I have ordered all of the parts for my interpretation of the TIE Defender. Stay tuned, as soon as the parts arrive I will begin construction. If you have questions or comments, or want different views from some of the models, feel free to ask.
  16. My new Star Wars MOC: Pasaana Everything is ready, units arranged, photos taken I built one universal baseplate, on which I present 3 scenes from The Rise of Skywalker! The width of the base is less than 70cm, so this is the largest model I have built so far. I have a supply of tan bricks for long time I used about 1000 bricks to build the base, it is even difficult to count it, there were many orders on Bricklink. I used my other projects in the scenes: First Order Transporter, TIE Whisper, Pasaana Loader Skimmer with First Order Treadspeeder. Full review and one additional bonus scene on my YouTube! Edge of Bricks More photos here: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmPhVB1a
  17. From the designer of the most famous AT-AT MOC comes a UCS Tie Defender. The MOC contains 1,676 pieces in total. Despite being a relatively simple design consisting of a base with 3 identical wings, the model itself does not disappoint in terms of both accuracy and detail. There is an instructions bundle available for this MOC which includes a 162 page pdf instruction manual, a parts list, and LDD files. All we ask is an exchange of 20 U.S Dollars ($20) for the entire bundle. For more details about purchasing the bundle, please either PM me or contact me at chrdvorak@hotmail.com via email. For the sticker, I recommend printing it at 122mm width by 61mm height after downloading the original file in the bundle. Here are some images from the manual that show the design and completed model: The Rebrickable listing will be approved soon for an easy to access parts list. Please use this topic to discuss anything about the MOC including the building process, questions, part substitutions, etc.

    [MOC] TIE cockpit ball

    I experimented with Lego pieces introduced with the 2018 and 2019 sets. I hope you like these spacecraft models. I find the TIE cockpit a challenge to model in Lego. It is shaped like an ice-cream scooper with two handles. If done properly, the result should look spherical and be strong enough to “fly” with TIE Interceptor wings (pictured above) or the heavier TIE Fighter wings (pictured below.) TIE Fighter wings are heavier than TIE Interceptor wings. My previous attempt at connecting my MOC to the 9492 TIE Fighter wings didn’t work. I over-applied technic pins for too many of the connections, so wings were wobbly when shaken. This time I extend the plates all the way from the center to the wings. Having 2 studs of overlap between plates ensures minimal bending. I saw two 35299 pieces used in Yoda’s Hut set. Luckily, with Defense of Crait, this piece now comes in Light Bluish Gray. I put two of them behind a 6 x 6 Dish Inverted with SW 8 Spokes Radial Cockpit Pattern. Result: a spherical shape although elongated width-wise. The chin-mounted muzzles are a pair of 35480. The cockpit ball is 9 studs in diameter. There is enough room to fit a 4-stud diameter dish but not a 6-stud one. I originally intended to build a 5-stud wide canopy, but there is not enough space. (update 2019-11-20) Some of you asked: "Where's the Twin Ion Engine?" Well here it is -- the obligatory hexagonal cavity! This is supposedly a window or an ion discharge port. The doughnut-shaped plate on my MOC obscures the hexagon from the camera. I need to find a way to move or lengthen the cavity a tad towards the rear of the spaceship.
  19. It is my second try at creating a model the way Lego does but at the same time being as sleek and faithful to original as possible. It is not a 100% MOC, because it incorporates some basic structure techniques of 75101 mixed with 75211. 759 pieces plus 56 for a display stand.

  20. Hi! This is my first moc from The Rise of Skywalker, Episode 9 - First Order TIE Interceptor! Now is only in LDD design, I'm still thinking if I should build this or wait to official premiere of this vehicle. 904 pieces, a lot of details, I based only on movie trailer What do you think? More on my YouTube:
  21. Hi! My new MOC is ready! Very quick and easy build, just only 683 parts on board Quick and easy design, prepared in 3-4 days. I managed to improve the joining of the wings, I added the brackets, which makes the connection very strong. Soon I will add information about the instructions, a list of parts and a review on my YouTube!

    [MOC] TIE Interceptor

    After learning some basic skills on modifying First Order TIE Fighter and designing Imperial TIE Fighter based on official LEGO sets, moving on to TIE Interceptor was an obvious and natural choice. I really like the ship. It’s shapes are way more interesting than the standard fighters, yet the Interceptor is stylish and what is even more important for me - 100% classic. Basically all I had to do was to create it’s panels. My first decision was to abandon the use of locking hinges because the angles of the upper and lower parts of the panels are significantly and visibly bigger then 45 degrees and my priority was to get the best proportions. I ended up with this solution and I’m satisfied with it. The angles are just right and the upper and lower parts are locked securely in position. Even though it is a display piece, the model is solid and swooshable. I’ve also managed to include lots of important details. I am aware there are imperfections mostly regarding details but I think I got it just right as for minifig scale and classic build which matches well official LEGO sets. The piece count is 774 + 50 for the stand. More pics on my flickr account here. If you like it, you may find pdf step-by-step instructions on rebrickable.

    [MOC] TIE Advanced X1

    Hi! My new project - TIE Advanced X1 685 parts, made in LDD but soon I'll start build real one :) Work in progress, it's not final design :) On the top I use 4x4 dish from 75211 Tie Fighter set, probably I use another canopy - the same like in set 75150, size 6x6. - number of part 18675pb01 Connect of the wings has several improvements and reinforcements, you will see it after building :) How do you like it? Any ideas to impreve this MOC? :)
  24. This is the final version of my Imperial TIE Fighter based on original LEGO sets. I've made PDF step-by-step instructions as well. If anyone would like to build this one, instructions are available at rebrickable.com for 6,99 Euro here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-19900/barneius/imperial-twin-ion-engine-fighter/#comments Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr Imperial TIE Fighter Lego MOC / MOD by barneius, on Flickr

    [MOD] 7181 UCS TIE Interceptor

    Hi everyone, I'm a big fan of the SW UCS theme, especially of the TIE Fighters. My first UCS set was the 2000 TIE Interceptor. I was very proud to have it. However, as I get the Vader's TIE and the new TIE Fighter, the TIE Interceptor didn't match to them at all with its blue and dark gray colours... I decided to replace all blue, dark and light gray parts to light and dark bluish gray. I haven't found a modification like this on this forum, so I'd like to share with you what I came up with. My purpose was to create a nice display modell, which fits to my taste and is faithful to the original set as well. On the other hand, I wanted to customize it to be more appropriate to the film version. I used the elements of the Vader's TIE to build the cockpit (octagonal pieces and the hatch). In addition, I carried out some minor changes on the wings as well (1x8 dark bluish gray plate on the sides, replacement of the hinge bricks to plates, light bluish gray "stripes" on the inner sides). The interior got also an unique colour. It can't be perfectly appropriate to the film version, mostly because of the the inadequate angles of the wings, but I'm satisfied with the final result. Hope, you like it. Thanks for stopped by!
