UT-60D U-Wing E 'was love at first sight .. a design that has deliberately mixed the style and characteristics of the most iconic starfighters of the saga. X-wing, y-wing and SnowSpeeders seem to gather here in the sinuous lines and calibrated this ship. The brilliant idea to give him a soul of its own, making it not only a starfighter attack but also a transport landing troops. Ladies and gentlemen, here is the MOC LEGO SB00101 - UT-60D U-Wing Starfighter / Support craft. After nearly four months of hard work I can finally present my creation. I started working in October 2016 on the basis of the few pictures that then you could find online. The fundamental prerogative for me was to respect as much as possible the proportions and create a scaled moc UCS. At the same time I studied and perfected the structure to make it solid, handy and completely disassembled into blocks to be able to assemble and disassemble easily. The lower doors are sliding and can be opened using a technique that to my knowledge has not yet been used, or at least I have never seen used. Inside the cargo area they are arranged the "benches" for the troops and the guns attack. The cockpit has the double glass .. top and bottom. To the top glass I realized the extent of adhesives inspired by those of the set 10240. Wings, studied and modeled with a sinuous shape and tapered, can be opened and can be placed in a "attack". Because of their weight, to avoid distorting the structure of the engine body to achieve a suitable system to support them, I opted to create two small "props" that support them and securing them perfectly parallel to the supporting plane. I am particularly proud of the engine body, which was the first block to be studied and planned. I made several versions before reaching the final one that I find well sized and proportioned. The design phase has been completed a week before the film and before proceeding with the BL orders I wanted to wait for the release of the film for checking compliance of the details that I had been impossible to grasp from the few available images. About 80% of the pieces I had at home but it was still necessary to perform six orders to find everything you need. In mid-January came the last order and I was able to finally give "life" to my creature. I say .. it in hand and to admire it in its massive proportions has been worth the effort to achieve it occurred. Are you wondering how many pieces consists .. 3324 brick and 6 minifigure. Jyn Herso, Cassian Andor, K2-SO, Bodhi Rook, Chirrut Imwe and Baze Malbus. The fearless rebels fled the planet Jedha after the destruction of the city by the terrifying new weapon empire. The dimensions for folded wings are 90 cm long, 35 cm wide and 18 cm in height. With wings spread measuring 80 cm long, 135 cm wide and 18 cm in height What about ... already liked on paper this ship but the definitive consecration took place after seeing it on the big screen piloted by two pilots brave Cassian Andor and K2-SO. It was unthinkable not to achieve a UCS version of this icon. Hope you like it.. A special rigraziamento to my friend Corrado Rosson which gave me great advice to make the photo shoot. Album flickr
This has been my main project pretty much since Rogue One came out way back last December and I'm glad to say its finally done! My main goal with this was to make a U-wing that is closer to the actual size it appears in the movie and to have a cockpit that's connected to the troop bay unlike on the Lego set. In these respects I think its successful but I think it still needs some work, especially in fixing the proportions which were off from the beginning due to the wing design I chose. However, for now at least I'm just happy to call this finished but I'll no doubt return to it sometime! I have to say a big thanks to Kit Bricksto who let me use his great cockpit area design but also gave me lots of advise throughout the build once we both realised we had been working on our own U-wings. Sadly he hasn't finished his but you can checkout a WIP photo of it here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/kit_bricksto/34815561821/in/dateposted/ More pictures and info about the build is up on Flickr. Any and all comments on the build are very welcome especially ideas for improvements!
