  1. Backstory: Ever since I emerged from my dark age I was mesmerized by Designer Han’s models – especially dragline excavator. I like all kind of excavators so I was slowly gathering pieces for it to buy instructions and build it. I have realized over the time that building from instructions is not entertaining for me and that I can build almost anything if I have the drive (and parts). I still admire Han’s models, but I know that I would be disappointed because of his design choices. Don’t get me wrong – I still like his work, but I don’t want to build it anymore. Long story short – I wanted my own dragline excavator with truck transport. Preparations: First of all I had to pick a reference machine, in this case Sennebogen HD 670 tracked crane. Why this one? Sennebogen because it is not very known and because of this fantastic die cast model: http://www.cranesetc.co.uk/library/rosreviews/203/203review.htm . Such models are very good because you can see the machine from a lot of angles and you can replicate small details from them more easily. The model is however 690HD and I have picked smaller 70 ton 670HD. This is because of whole concept with transport truck. The scale is dictated by wheels, in this case by wheels on truck and wheels on excavator as well. Since TLG is making only two wheels for tracked vehicles it is simple choice. With bigger tracked wheels the scale is 21,5:1, meaning that 49,5mm tires for truck are perfect fit. 690HD with the same wheels would be closer to 23:1 and we do not have truck wheels for this scale. Features: Undercarriage Real crawlers have either retractable tracks or dismount them completely when transported. In order to achieve that I had to place all motors to superstructure and use single battery box. As you can see from datasheet, the tracks can be retracted so they are not wider than body. To replicate it I have built it in such way that both tracks are very easily detachable from central piece that can be swapped for narrow one. Replacing this central piece doesn’t take more than few minutes, it is only necessary to take apart two liftarms on each side as seen in the picture. Another stud or two narrower tracks would be probably better, but I would certainly lose the ability to swap it easily. All four wheels are driven by two shafts from superstructure connected to M motors; final ratio is 9,265:1. Wide track Narrow track IMGP5236 Superstructure The superstructure holds six motors (4x M-motor and 2x L-motor) – two M motors are for tracks, 1x M motor is for slewing via worm gear on turntable (56:1) and rest are for winches. Slewing gave me quite a headache because of the desired gear ratio. The real machine can rotate up to 4 revolutions per minute so I wanted to replicate that. In the end the only viable solution was to use older turntable driven by worn gear without further gear reductions. I use train PF remote to start and stop smoothly. The usage of older turntable meant I had to shorten boom because of its less stability as it bends significantly more than new type. The A frame is fixed – the boom is raised by pulling floating pulleys with attached ropes. Bigger machines uses movable A frame where the angle between A frame and boom is fixed. The A frame can be folded down when the crawler is transported. A frame is Pythagorean triplet with beams length 29-21-20. There are 3 winches for boom raising, bucket lifting and bucket drag. All three are equally geared 5:1. Counterweight is detachable as on real machine, it of course holds standard Technic battery box. Cabin features opening doors and foldable walkway. IMGP5220 IMGP5222 Ready for work side by side Boom Booms on real machines are made out of several truss elements bolted together. There is usually lower boom section that stays on crawler when transported, then are intermediate sections in various lengths (2,9m, 5,7, and 11,2m) and then headpiece section. I wanted to replicate this kind of boom so I focused on correct shape of each section and size as well. This mean that the lower boom section is pyramid-shape: 5x1 studs wide at crawler side and 9x9 studs at opposite end. I guess not all connections on it are TLG legal, but everything fits nicely without any stress and thanks to it truss-like constructions it is very sturdy. The same principle follows at intermediate section, in my case the shortest one (2920 mm => 17 studs). Boom ends with headpiece that is quite similar to lower section but ends with two pulleys. They are of course not real pulleys as TLG doesn’t make anything free-spinning in that size but size was more important to me. The drawback of such modular boom is its weight; it is almost double the weight of boom that would be built in one piece so I had to stay low with total length. There are also two pulleys serving as fairlead so the rope dragging the bucket goes to winch from top, the fairlead pulleys are mounted on lever so they stay in same position regardless of boom angle. Headpiece side comparsion boom Bucket It is brick-build and its size is only guessed from pictures and its volume, I was unable to find any datasheets with buckets. Bucket Greebling, look and difficulties As usually I pay a lot of attention to greebling like railings, mirrors, cabin shape, lights and other small details. I really had fun with this model as it is quite packed with it. The biggest obstacle during the build was constant lack of parts. Together with truck and low-loader it is reaching 4000 pieces and I was even running low on both 2l and 3l pins once. I had selected yellow color at the start, green would be certainly better for Sennebogen, but I already had some yellow parts and green technic is very expensive. Beside that I have seen pictures of Sennebogen machines in various colors like yellow, red and blue, so I think it is fine. The whole internal build is very symmetric; the only asymmetric is gearing on left side for slewing and gearing on right for drag winch. IMGP5223 Playability Honestly, playability sucks. There is one important feature of real dragline omitted – free fall winches. Without it you can place bucket too close and drag it only few centimeters. Grabbing anything with the bucket is also very difficult. Drive and slew works very well though. Truck The truck is very loosely based on this real counterpart: http://www.ditzj.de/html/en/trucks/scania/wiesbr500.html i.e. 8x4 tractor with short wheelbase, 2 steered axles, high cabin and tower behind it. It is driven by L-motor and servo is used for steering. Both steerable axles use the same configuration like in my previous truck – 5l steering arms and hubs with 3 ball joints. There is of course Ackermann steering and different angle on both axles. Rear axles are connected to fake V6 engine. Cabin features two seats, IR receiver between them and steering wheel. Whole cabin can tilt to reveal engine. Gear ratio from L motor is 7:1 because it is meant to haul quite a lot of weight. The truck can be easily modified to low cabin version as the high roof is only held by four pins. The tower is too high then so it is replaced with bare battery box. The whole truck is quite heavy on front and it have sometimes trouble with driving when it is without load so it is possible to add ballast box on its fifth wheel. There is also coupling for draw ball trailer, but it is not meant for pulling. I think the most difficult part of design was not to copy my previous truck. The cabin is still quite similar, I’m aware of that, but in the end I’m happy with other small details that makes it different – flags on front, mud flaps, detachable roof, etc. IMGP5248 IMGP5249 Working fake engine Low cabin Ballast box Low-loader Low loader with detachable gooseneck is based on Motomat’s trailer because in the end you realize there is only one viable way how to build it – two technic beams with plates between. A little challenge was how to mount wheels without using single axle for both sides. The frame between wheels can be only 4 studs wide meaning the axle can be supported by 2 studs. I have used 8L axle with stop supported by thin liftarms. In the end the wheels are supported enough, they can rotate freely and you can take them apart without axle. IMGP5260 Lowloader with detachable gooseneck Instructions I have made instructions for dragline and truck as well. Lowloader will follow soon. Both will appear on Rebrickable soon, I will add link here later. Due to amount of work it took I will sell instructions for dragline for 10€ and truck for 5€. Lowloader will be free as it is not something trully mine. Both instructions are as usually PDF generated by LPub3D. Especially the dragline is compressed into as few steps as possible, with only 115 pages (~2400 parts), so if you don't like TLG instructions for beeing too easy this might be something for you. Dragline rebrickable link: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-17193/Ivan_M/dragline-excavator/#parts Video & gallery Whole gallery is here: https://flic.kr/s/aHskDJiTT8 And one crappy video for end:
  2. Perhaps the new theme park needs a better transport which can maneuver in the city, right? Based on my previous truck design, I did this for moving the raptors. The tractor section has a turret that can be used for any emergency cases like dinosaur escape, and now raptor transport can go through the city without problem! Hope you enjoy this :) thanks!
  3. Hi ! Here is my WIP for the TC6 contest. It's a transport truck with a palfinger crane on the back. My model have 4 powered motors. I use a gearbox, so i have 7 functions motorised. - Selection of operating mode (M-motor) Driving : - Drive (XL-motor) - Steer (M-motor) - Outriggers (M-motor) Handling : - UP arm (XL-motor) - Rotate arm (M-motor) - Open arm (M-motor) + fake engine and suspension When the gearbox is in neutral, it is possible to drive in hand with HOG. And small render with LDD. Very far from the quality of Blackbird.

    [UCS] U-Wing Rebel Transport

    Update 22/11/17 Project abandoned, LDD file here for anyone interested: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wwc7v3p2s2yep72/UCS UT-60D Rebel Transport.lxf?dl=0 Welcome everybody, After recently seeing Rogue One, which is an amazing film, I decided to redesign my U-Wing and make it UCS by recommendation of @brobert as it wasn't very accurate. I have managed to get the model to approximate minifigure scale. The cockpit can accommodate two pilots and the cargo bay around 10 troopers. I am pleased that I have managed to keep the sleek aerodynamic look, as that was my original goal that I set out for myself. For the sliding doors, I have mainly kept TLG's design, but I have hidden the function almost completely as theirs is clearly visible. The wings do swoop back, however, I was having difficulty rotating them on LDD so I do not have any images. Hopefully, I will fix this issue!I have also used their UCS Y-Wing stand as I thought it suited my model well. There is not a transparent piece/cockpit large enough for the bottom of the ship, so I used four transparent 6180s instead. My design is made up of 888 bricks, which is not a great amount for a UCS set. However, this is because there are a lot of big bricks throughout the model. This MOC surprisingly only took 5-6 hours to create. It would not be a UCS Star Wars ship without greebling, so I have included this at the rear next to the engines. The only noticeable issue with the model is the lack of the cannons at the front of the ship, I will incorporate this at some point Please give me your suggestions, so I can improve my model, as this is a work in progress. Thank you for reading! Kind regards, Ellis.
  5. UPDATE : 6th October 2017 The building instructions (PDF + partslist.xls) of my ITT are finally available! The rebrickable link is not valid yet (I'll do an update for that) but you can go to my website (https://bricksfeeder.wixsite.com/bricksfeeder/starwars-1). To help me a little to continue this passion, these instructions are paying (10 euros by paypal). Link to Rebrickable : https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-10166/BricksFeeder/itt-imperial-troop-transport-minifigs-scale/#comments My final MOC has 1154 pieces and has light f you want. https://youtu.be/2S4VYgInwfM I hope you enjoy! :) Keep on building! ----------------------------------------------- Hello from France Guys ! I'm Bricks Feeder and it's my first topic on Eurobricks! :) I show you my third version of my MOC of the ITT (Imperial Troop Transport) seen on the SW Rebels series. This MOC has the dimensions of the mining's scale with 1174 bricks. => Almost 21cm (L) x 10,5 cm (W) x 9cm (H) I'm trying to build a "cool" Interior of the cockpit. I'll continue to work on it. I am not satisfied yet ! I'll show you my advance and if I can, the real one! If you have some ideas or constructive criticisms, share with me please! I want to upgrade my skills! :) Enjoy and have a nice day! P.S. : If you have the time... Check my You Tube Channel! ;) My previous version can be seen in this video.
  6. Creating Tiny Turbo MOC is a great way to design a LEGO Car, it's small and you can add so many details on it. I've done some Tiny Turbos MOCs, so here it is... Let's start with my very first Tiny Turbo creation, Orcar: Orca Car: Orcar by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr The second one, a Hatchback Racer: Hatchback Racer by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr Then get low with this Slance, Slammed or Stanced Car: Slance by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr Got into a concept theme, a Concept Buggy and it's ready for Off-Roading! Concept Buggy by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr And lastly, a Concept Semi Truck: Concept Semi Truck by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr Okay, that's just some of my Tiny Turbos creations, hope you enjoy it!

    [MOC] NEO Fighter

    LEGO NEO Fighter, inspired by TIE Fighter from Star Wars movie. Called NEO because this model using NEXO Knights part, and I cut the NEXO to NEO. NEO Fighter by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr Some more Information in my Blog!..
  8. Standing 58cm tall and 59cm long, this AT-AT from Star Wars is probably my largest robot to date. It is controlled by an EV3 p-brick, and is capable of walking, turning its neck, and shooting balls from a twin-ball launcher located inside its head. Here is a list of the functions of the robot: - Walking: 2 EV3 large motors - Neck turning: 1 EV3 medium motor - Shooting: 1 NXT motor Also includes an EV3 IR sensor for use with the EV3 IR remote. After getting the BWE, I had a plentiful supply of grey beams and panels, which I used in the aesthetics of the model. The head design was the most tricky part of the build. I needed it to look good, while at the same time have enough space for the twin-ball shooter with magazines. However, I'm happy with the end result, as it looks quite accurate to the actual thing. With the amount of pieces I had, I was also able to achieve a (almost) full body cover, which although adds to the weight of the robot, looks really nice. There are also two flaps on top of the head that can be lifted up to access the ball magazines. Walking was especially tricky to achieve in this model, as it was so top heavy. Rubber bands had to be used to help pull in the legs when they bore the load of the robot, otherwise the motors would not have enough torque. All legs are controlled simultaneously by the two motors, so the robot theoretically can't turn. However, I doubt the robot could turn even if the two sides could be controlled independently, since it is so top heavy. The EV3 brick can be accessed through opening of the panels on the side of the body. This was the easiest way to access the electronics while keeping a full-body cover (The real AT-AT in the movies also had opening side body panels). Here is a video of the AT-AT walking, turning its neck, and shooting. More information about the robot can be found here: https://www.us.lego.com/en-us/mindstorms/community/robot?projectid=afba4def-3b6b-49f3-8e0f-f964224763d9 Hope you enjoyed this robot!

    [MOC] First Order Transporter

    This is my first complete piece that I have made as an adult. LOL. Woo hoo! I won't have a brick count until I dismantle, but it is huge. 54 studs long x 20 studs wide, almost as long as my arm. It can carry up to 24 men tightly, 16 men loosely (pictured). The heavy weapon can be dismounted and placed on field mount if tactically useful. The searchlight on the front can rotate a full arc.

    [K - G09] A world of clay

    Location: G09 - Greater Drigo Tags: Exploration, Land vehicle Log #008 – 11 Desembrinali 3816 Oswald is in trouble and HQ sent me to help him back to the cargo station with the acquired water that has rare healing chemicals in It. He can't risk It to flush It away for his research. His transport is not very suited to drive through all this clay in zone C38 on the planet Greater Drigo though. Equipped with a solid detector, I'm scanning our way through where there are hard rock formations under all the clay we're walking on. If there are big gaps between the hard rock formations, we have to walk another path and so on. We explored I think every uncharted area of zone C38 and If I continued this job for 6 months more, I'd develop the universe's biggest thighs. My legs are killing me and they're heavy from all the clay I stepped in, but we finally made It! By the way. Why could I not get a vehicle that floats or something? Is someone pulling a prank on me at HQ because of my inactivity? More information and pictures under the spoiler tag:
  13. Here is my entry for the SHIPtember 2016 contest. Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr This year, I decided to build a Mobquet Medium Transport coming straight from the Star Wars Expanded Universe. Those among you who played to the X-Wing Alliance videogame or read the Dark Empire comics book must maybe remember it. Length: 104 studs Width: 34 studs This is my 5th SHIP. Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr A small zoom on its "head": Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr And on the back, with the engine exhausts: Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr Please note that the back side is not fully conform to the original pictures. Normally, there should be 2 large engines at the bottom-read side. However, for playability reasons, I have decided not to display them. By removing them, the MOC can strongly land on the bottom repulsors and is much sturdier. My build technic is mainly about cladding panels around a strong technic backbone. I am still working on the inside as I want to make it playable for my son. However, here is a small sneak preview of one of the bays. More pictures later. Mobquet Medium Transport by Veynom, on Flickr A few features: A handle to easily carry it (and it is not too heavy according to my son) Opening panels on each sides (4 total) and on the top (also 4) in order to easily access the inside. Side panels can be used as access ramps A few visible studs inside the bays in order to attach small vehicles and ships Rear bay transport capacity: 6 speeder bikes (Empire or Clone Wars style) OR 4 speeder bikes & 2 pallets of equipment (small repair area) OR any 6 of the vehicles usually found within battle packs Central bay transport capacity: any of the below lines (all tested successfully) 2 Tank Droids (75015) 1 Mandalorien speeder 1 Jedi fighter (Aethersprite) 2 Geonosian fighters or Canon 2 clone light artillery guns 1 speeder bike with side-car Plenty of crates, or troops or whatever A few pictures from the build : I started by measuring the length, just to have an idea of what I ned to build SHIPtember 2016 Day 1: The beginning of the journey by Veynom, on Flickr Then I try transforming it into a strong backbone (with the handle, it has to be strong) SHIPtember 2016 Day 4: Assembling the backbone by Veynom, on Flickr After the first cargo area, I start the second, while testing the cladding technic. SHIPTEMBER going forward. by Veynom, on Flickr The idea of a double floor for the rear bay is born here .... simultaneously with my fear of not having enough plates to cover the entire surface. Ultimately, it was ok but I have no more black, dark blueish grey or green plates anymore. SHIPTember 2016 Day 27 by Veynom, on Flickr Almost finished .... on one side at least. The second side was still empty and panel-less.

    [MOC] Forbidden Planet

    This is a set I made for LEGO Ideas, but I figured I'd share it here as well. I'm still very new on Eurobricks and this is only the very first MOC that I've posted, so I'm open any tips anyone has to offer about how to format these sorts of posts in the future. The set is based on science fiction classic Forbidden Planet and includes minifigs of all the main characters from the film, including a block-built version of Robbie the Robot, plus the weird unnamed space-car thing that Robbie drove around. I also included a minifig-scale lego version of the film's poster. I tried to make everything as accurate to the film as it was possible to get at that scale, including custom decorations for the uniforms complete with accurate rank insignias. Here's some various angles of the car thing. Sadly, I wasn't able to make it so the front opens like in the film. Here's some of Robbie. Funnily enough, he actually has greater range of articulation than the original Robbie costume/prop did. And here's some closer looks at the poster I designed for it Let me know what you think. If you like it, please take the time to support it on Lego Ideas.
  15. I'm finally ready to introduce a new, originally-designed speeder to you straight from the classic trilogy: --Rebel Troop Carrier-- Based on the speeder used by the Rebel Alliance at Echo Base on Hoth, this speeder isn't the most recognizable among Star Wars fans, but as a vehicle from the films, as well as being featured as a design element on the Hoth maps of Star Wars: Battlefront, it is still a valuable icon of our appreciation. To date, LEGO has only released one version of this speeder. Included as a supplement in their newest hoth set, 75098, it wasn't my favorite. To me, little-to-no detail was put into the build, as it was a very simple build and, surprisingly, much smaller than I'd previously hoped it be. Needless to say, I took it upon myself to create a much more, highly-detailed rendition of the speeder. Using namely the photos of the speeder from The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Battlefront, as well as inspiration from other LEGO customs designers, I think this speeder turned out great. The scale is perfect for this build. It includes spaces for 4 rebel troops and a driver, as well as 5 spots for easy blaster housing. The front of the model is a very sturdy assembly which houses the different lights seen on the original speeder. It's also built at an angle, just like the real thing. The most challenging aspect of this model was the rear side, as there is a LOT of detail to consider. In the end, I was able to synchronize detail and functionality/playability together, rather than have detail be the "sacrificial lamb: for functinality's sake. The center end opens up so there is more access from the rear side of the speeder for troop entrance. MOCpages Comments welcome. God bless.

    MOC: The Boats of Gelo

    In the year 2561, a gas giant exists known as R7-55, or Gelo. The planet is inhabited by a rag tag society of aliens from across the galaxy, living on towns built on small low-orbiting asteroids in the planets sea-like gases. However, only an approximate 700,000 people live on the planet, spread out among the surface, making economy difficult. So what most inhabitants do to make money, is build boat-like transporters designed to "float" across waves of gasses. These are used to transport goods between towns, and look like this: (sorry you can see my finger in this photo.) These "boats" bring and trade goods at trade stores. You can make a trade right through an open window, or you can also buy something inside the shop while your transporter is being loaded. Transporters are created by building a hull out of pretty much any material you can get your hands on, then adding a "mast",with some pieces of fabric to catch the wind. Engines usually consist of a few gas tanks connected to a compression chamber, to create a small (or large) flame to propel the transporter through the gasses. A rudder is always added for steering, and occasionally an extra fin or two for stability. While most transporters are relatively small, this is the largest transporter ever built, owned by Arnold Henderson and is wife. In this picture, it's docking with Dragon Traders, the planets most successful trade shop. The trade shop is so successful, it had a crane built in 2558 so it could load larger amounts of goods in faster time. The transporter has been designed to go longer distances and hold more cargo, the engine is significantly larger, and also carries a water tank and a generator for the on board cabin. Even though the engine is much larger, you can still see the similarities it has with the other much smaller transporter. here you can see the ships cabin, and its detailed interior. I had some trouble getting a good roof with my peices, so it's a little flimsy. You can see my design though. Sometimes pickup trucks ship out goods to other planets. This is an old one way back from 2234! And here are some shots from inside Dragon Traders. Here you can see the shop level of the trade store. Funny, I thought they stopped selling alien weapons. And for fun here are some goods that are often shipped between towns. Gold, warp crystals, and carbon rods. And always, a transporter operator should be aware of the unpredictable lighting storms that happen in the planets gassy layers, as they can easily knock a transporter off course. hope you enjoyed the post, Th3_Br1ck_Kid
  17. 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...

Sheathipede-class transport shuttle Evolved by Veynom, on Flickr A bulky rear side which offers a large loading ramp. (Who said "a big a.."?) Sheathipede-class transport shuttle Evolved by Veynom, on Flickr Troops can be landed and quickly get out of the ship. Sheathipede-class transport shuttle Evolved by Veynom, on Flickr I am currently also building several cargo modules that will fit inside and maximise both the playability and flexibility of this ship.

Comments are welcome.
  18. A Full Blown Engine, Visible Transmission, Retractable Hood, Adjustable Wheel, Repair Tools - these are just some of the specs of the new Hot Rod 27! If you enjoy my project and you'd like to see it on the shelves, please support it here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/129293 The Story: I've always loved inventing new Lego toys. A few years ago I began building a custom hot rod. I wanted to make a car that would not only look good, but that would also be realistic. That's how I gave it a transmission that goes from the full blown engine to the front wheels, as shown in the video: A few days ago I found out about Lego Ideas and I wanted to submit my car, but I had new ideas. I wanted to make it more playable. That's how I came up with the retractable hood and the adjustable wheel. I made it so that a minifigure is able to enter the cockpit and drive the car, and even wear a helmet. Furthermore, I added some tools near the cockpit, in case the engine malfunctions or there's a flat tire. It also has front lights and tail lights, a radiator in the front, lateral exhaust pipes, adjustable engine pistons, rear-view mirrors, a big gas tank and slick, wide tires in the back. Dimensions: 14 x 7 x 4 cm ( approximately ) With about 140 pieces, the Hot Rod 27 can become an affordable and easy to build custom car!
  19. First of all a shout-out to Delta62, who built and posted an impressive Imperial Troop Transport before I did. To complete my MOCs of iconic ground vehicles from the Star Wars Rebels show, I've finished my minifig-scale version of the Imperial Troop Transport. It is sturdy, and for accuracy in shapes, proportions and details I used the Star Wars Rebels Visual Guide as a reference once again. Here's the model: Here's the vehicle with all doors and hatches on one side opened: The whole top can be pulled off easily to gain acceess to the inside. As you can see, there's a lot of space to transport goods, weapons or troops, as well as a seperate and detailed cockpit section that can hold a driver, an officer and three more passengers. I textured the middle-section of the top so that a few studs are exposed on which cargo boxes holding meilooran-fruits and other luxuries can be attached: Enjoy!

  21. Here is one more or less weird MOC of space liquid waste transporter. I made it in two nights for a space diorama at our local exhibition - 14.KockeFest. This is not a deep space vehicle because it does not have any ultra big or powerful engines. Main reason for building such a vehicle were these big wheels that I used for a waste tank. Hope you like it ;) Regards
  22. Here is my modified version of the 75103 Lego First Order Transporter. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr This transport barge is 6 studs longer than the original set. And there is more. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr I tried to bring a pure studless look to the transporter and this increases the sense of robustness of the barge. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr I also added a few extra details here and there to break the monotonous aspect of the barge hull: extra grids or bars for example. The side propulsors have been "massified" with some extra details and element that render like extra armor. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr The apparent technic beams at the rear have been hidden. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr I removed the spring shooters and replaced the dual stud shooters by a good old E-web for the Empire' sake. The E-web can rotate left, right and up. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr The rear hull section has become a small platform that can hold some equipment or people when landed. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr Regarding passenger capacity, it has been increased from 9 to easily 14, including the weapons of the 14 troopers. It can also accommodate a speeder and its crew. First Order Transporter by Veynom, on Flickr The playability has been respected and this is why some studs are still apparent, mainly inside or on the opening front door. I hope you enjoy it! Now I merely need to add a sea, a beach, a bunker and some dying rebel scum! :)

    [K - A04] Transport away

    Planet: A04 Mynderis The crew of the Landship are anxious. It has been two days since Lieutenant Okura went missing. While the droids search, all they can do is wait. Sir? Have they found her? Unfortunately not. Then why are you here? I was very clear. "Do not disturb me unless you have good news." Well, sir, you are needed on the bridge by command. I hate command. This is not good news. I know, sir. Oh you, Doctor! You've got lovely eyes too! Out of my way! Commander. Vice Admiral. You are being dispatched on- No! You know very well that we are searching for a crew member here! Commander, the transport ship will pick you up shortly. You will either make the drop, or you will be stranded on Mynderis. Your crew will perish and die with you. But what about the Lieutenant? She is dead, Commander. You know this as well as I do. People don't just vanish without a trace without sending out distress signals. She is gone, and you are going to make the drop. What if I refuse? Sir, we can't get stranded. I have a wife and a son. The Vice Admiral is right, Miss Okura is probably beyond rescue. Certainly, she is not here, the droids are very thorough. I don't like this at all. But I won't force you to stay. We will make the drop. ~~~ He has a wife?
