  1. So I woke up this morning to the news Winter Village set 10308 - Holiday Main Street had been revealed. I like some of it (Trolley FTW!) but the buildings were lacking "something". So, I tried to recreate the music store in LDD to fix what Ii thought I needed to fix. That quickly turned into full-blown MOC only slightly inspired by the set with a back wall and different interior. (All in all, I spent two-and-a-half hours digitally puzzling this out.) I then turned it from a music store into a post office as I still need a post office on my town! NOTE: The big front window, drain pipe parts, and a couple printed pieces are missing. The rear of the building has a service door to give access to big trucks for delivery / pickup of cross-country mail. I'm honestly not happy with the roof, but doing a matching one to the front is impossible. Thus, this version will have to do. The lower floor has got a sales desk with old fashioned cash register, a scale for weighing packages, and a couple safety deposit boxes. The poster on the wall above the boxes will be a "most wanted" mugshot, for a true post office feel. Moving on, the upper floor is the sorting room, with bunches of drawers for route maps / address change requests / etc. and trashcans for dead letters. The table is for where the postal employees do the sorting. Finally, the attic is empty, but I'm tempted to put the lawbreaker mentioned on the poster up there hiding out! I have a mail delivery vehicle built already (technically it's been built since 2018) just waiting for a place to pick up mail from. Sadly, I seem to have never taken pictures of it in real life. So until I find the real model and take pictures, a few older digital screenshots will have to do: This model was modified from @ScotNick's red British Morris Mail Van. (see it here on Flickr) The yellow van MOD features a brighter paint scheme and a sign on the side signifying it's job as a letter carrier. I added backwards-opening doors, a different rear hatch, a new front end for a 20's look and bigger tires. Not much of the original model remains intact, to be honest. This vehicle can seat one figure in the drivers seat and can hold a lot of cargo in the back compartment. Thoughts, anyone? EDIT 9/23/22: added the color scheme of the set back onto the building. Looks better, and it is no more expensive that the drab coloration of before.
  2. Hello everyone! Maybe it's too early, but let it happen. What do you think of the Speed Champions series in 2022? Do you think it will disappear or continue, or will it be under a different name? Anyway, personally, I think they will stay with us for a long time (after all, they have made specially new wheels for 2021). It seems to me that there is a good chance to see in 2022 in the SC series such cars: - BMW M8 (maybe GTE) - Pagani Zonda or Huayra - Ferrari - some F1 car - due to Toyota license can Toyota gr010 (hypercar) - maybe some cars from the DTM or VASC series Post comments about what you think.
  3. Hi everyone, I've been building the past few weeks. For Skaerbaek (event in Denmark) I want to have a small landscape inspired by the catalogs. I've build a Shark Scout. The first module for the landscape is finished as well. I wanted to create the rocks from the catalogs. This module can be taken apart in smaller modules for transport. Feedback is appreciated.

    [MOC] 8pin cars

    Hello :) Topic for placing in one place my self-made products 8pin wide in the scale of Speed Champions. Pleasand viewing! I will be glad to comments with wishes and criticism :)
  6. Hello Speed Champions fans, Black Arrow is a ficticious hypercar which was designed for a "Hypercar building contest" hosted by sfh_bricks on Instagram. I tried to design something really cool inspired by the cyberpunk culture. Building instructions are available on the following links: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-119144/_TLG_/black-arrow-hypercar-concept It is a studless build in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. Some rules had to be followed: only certain types of car bases, wheels, fenders and windscreen are allowed, cockpit have to be closed, fixed dimensions (wheelbase, width, and maximum length), build must fit a full minifig with helmet. I prefer the brick built solutions to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds, and therefore stickers are not used. My intent was to keep the build smooth and to add lots of details: for example the air intakes, the rear wing, the side view mirrors etc. . Maybe the most challenging one was the double headlight. I tried to fill every unnecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. There are two versions of the front assembly : 1) the double headlight version which is a bit more extreme and 2) the simple headlight version which is more solid and sturdy. The model has space for one minifigure. I suggest to use a helmet or small hair. Thanks for visiting, _TLG_ Black Arrow 01 by László Torma, on Flickr Black Arrow 02 by László Torma, on Flickr Black Arrow 03 by László Torma, on Flickr Black Arrow 04 by László Torma, on Flickr Black Arrow 05 by László Torma, on Flickr Black Arrow 06 by László Torma, on Flickr Black Arrow 08 by László Torma, on Flickr Black Arrow 07 by László Torma, on Flickr
  7. This project started about year ago as upscaled version of Dodge Charger R/T 1970 from set 75893 - 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and 1970 Dodge Charger R/T (as you can see looking at it's front) & since then (well since abandoning idea of having red stripe at back) evolved into modular Dodge Charger second generation MOC but can also be viewed as MOD of sets: 75893 - 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and 1970 Dodge Charger R/T 76173 - Spider-Man and Ghost Rider vs. Carnage 76912 - Fast & Furious 1970 Dodge Charger R/T There are some extensions not yet show, I'll update this post with additional pictures as soon as they are finished. Project is 95% finished since only remaining issues are: - better insides (replace invisible from outside bricks [well, mainly plates] to increase integral stability of model - decide which details I prefer most (for example mirrors) - add movie/tv shows/other (popular?) variants of car (for example blade version) - connected to "better insides" because it has to be modular compatible (and that may require small changes in modular system like it happened few times before) So this is (hopefully not too long) intro, let’s jump to pictures of said MOC (MOD?): 1968: 1969: 1970: Old build body - without doors: Openable hood & trunk - tried different variations that would be visually nice & would fit here but I couldn't find any other than cutting three light bluish gray brackets - 99207 - so I didn't: Ghost Rider modification (1969): Additional photos of back (which I'm super proud of) for version 1968: & 1969-70: Color variations: Last minute changes (if we can call two-three weeks ago like that): used 15625 (Slope Curved 5 x 8 x 2/3) part instead of combination of 15068 (Slope Curved 2 x 2 x 2/3) + tiles + plates for better curve at back added 25269 (Tile Round 1 x 1 Quarter) in doors Both changes are inspired from upcoming speed champions set. Old versions of car are still visible in pictures - for example all colored versions (yellow/red/gray or black "Old build body - without doors") What parts are modular? - front - front air intakes with (or without?) lights and also box that contains them (intake + lights part can be replaced inside box between versions or with enough parts whole box can be replaced) - back - whole back panel - lights are different between 1968 and 1969 (1970 is the same as 1969 one) - mask - used to add air intakes or supercharger (or both) - R/T printed tiles (wherever they fit) - wheels (different variations require different wheels) - seats (different variations require different seats combination/colors of seats) Additionally this is my first post here: Hi everyone, have a great day! ------------- Update: Instructions available for free -> https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-119419/thomasanderson/modular-dodge-charger-2nd-generation-1968-70-8-wide/

    [MOC] 5pin trucks

    Hello! I want ot share my car models. Previously designed trucks and cars 4pin wide, I thought that the truck should be wider than the car - whitch means 5pin, since 6pin - its too much :) 4pin trucks can be seen here p.s. If I made a mistake in the section - please forgive me and move the topic to the ride one. Thank you for the attention! Next trucks ( Which is betten - add new models in the first (main) post or in the following comments? ) My topics: micro city + micro village
  9. Hello. I am glad to present you my new project for LEGO Ideas. my model :) I like to build trucks on a scale of about 1:64. Previously, they were mostly single models, but now I plan to add some environment to them. One of the first ideas was to build an automated truck assembly line. The assembly takes place in several stages: at the first stage, a suspension is added to the truck frame, at the second - wheels and engine with transmission, the third stage adds the assembled cabin, and at the fourth stage, glazing and fastening of additional equipment takes place. Next, the finished model is checked, and you can send it to a car dealership. Well, or add some module for cargo :) Trucks can be assembled with different cab and rim colors. As for the assembly line itself, it is automated. The staff only monitors the process. I will be glad to see your comments with reviews, and thank you for your attention!

    Blacktron Droid Factory Lego Ideas

    Back in the 90s I used to think the Message Intercept Base was a Futuron Base diguised as a Blacktron one. Many times I thought how it would look a true Blacktron1 Base. So I designed this project and make something more "mean" more "rebelious" a base with modules which could be used both as rooms in the base and also as parts of vehicles or ships. I wanted to take the interlocking modular concept used by Lego on the Blacktron 1 sets to a new level and giving a fresh look to the retro space subtheme. Also give them droids which actual look like automata units for different purposes like spy units or guards. Enjoy it and if you like it, give it support. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/0f9caab4-1d4a-4207-ae82-60b6cc8b61d9
  11. Let´s start with brand new model for the LEGO Technic Challenge. A 29 cm tall figure of American astronaut with moving wrists, elbows and shoulders. The helmet is equipped with two PF lights and both arms are operated by PF M motors. The model is remote controlled and powered by rechargeable LEGO battery.

    [MOC] Porsche 906

    Hello Porsche and Speed Champions fans, Porsche 906 aka Carrera 6 is a street-legal racing car from Porsche. It was announced in January 1966 and 50 examples were subsequently produced, thus meeting the homologation requirements of the FIA's new Group 4 Sports Car category to the number. The type would also compete in modified form in the Group 6 Sports Prototype class. For the year of the car's debut in 1966, it achieved numerous victories. The main inspiration came from a plastic toy car which I received as a child. Building instructions are available on the following links: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-106735/_TLG_/porsche-906 It is a studless build in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. I wanted to create a sleek model which is as accurate as possible in this small scale. I prefer the brick built solutions to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds, and therefore only a standard vehicle registration plate sticker is used. My intent was to keep the width-length-height ratio of the real car and this size makes it possible. The model contains lots of details: for example the emblematic front, the side view mirrors, the side air intakes etc. . Maybe the most challenging one was the iconic headlight, lots of solutions were tested before the final one. I tried to fill every unnecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The model has space for one minifigure. I suggest to use a helmet or small hair.

  13. I digitally recreated this model on January 30th, practically the day pictures of set 40532 - Vintage Taxi were revealed. I then ordered the six new black brackets + about 295 other parts from Lego Bricks and Pieces (R.I.P.) and the rest from BrickLink. Most of the car was finished February 7th, but the black brackets only arrived today. (March 24th). Here is how I recreated the car without instructions by guesswork: For this model I used Rebrickable's inventory to get a parts list of set 40532, removed all the accessories' parts (taxi stand, mini-fig, etc.) and changed the color of the yellow parts to several other colors to see what worked before settling on dark red. As this was designed / built before the instructions were released, it was just a visible parts field at first. (Nothing but parts laid out in a grid in LDD.) I didn't want to wait for the instructions while part prices could go up and thus I reverse engineered it using only logical part placements from the list. I also used Brickset's review of the set for reference to things official LEGO pictures didn't give... although I did miss a 1 x 2 green plate part doing it this way, and had to get a black one from my own collection. I changed the wheels to be something I already have in the same basic size, and the front grille to be a different style for reasons of cost saving and individuality. (If everyone else is going to have that one-piece front grille, why follow the crowd?) Doing something similar, but yet not the same was a goal in this entire project to begin with anyway. I added a license plate to the rear of the vehicle. The car still seats two with room for some luggage behind the passenger. As for the other 295 parts I purchased that January day, they are going to this house build which you can see more of in it's own topic here. All the parts have finally been gathered, with construction to start VERY soon, possibly Saturday... eight months after I started looking for parts for it! Thoughts, comments, and or complaints welcome!

    [MOC] Ferrari F40

    Hello Ferrari and Speed Champions fans, the Ferrari F40 (tipo F120) is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive sports car engineered by Nicola Materazzi with styling by Pininfarina. It was built from 1987 to 1992, with the LM and GTE race car versions continuing production until 1994 and 1996 respectively. As the successor to the 288 GTO (also engineered by Materazzi), it was designed to celebrate Ferrari's 40th anniversary and was the last Ferrari automobile personally approved by Enzo Ferrari. At the time it was Ferrari's fastest, most powerful, and most expensive car for sale. Building instructions are available on the following links: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-99799/_TLG_/ferrari-f40 https://www.mocsmarket.com/lego-mocs/ferrari-f40-building-instructions/ It is a studless build in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. I wanted to create a sleek model which is as accurate as possible in this small scale. I prefer the brick built solutions to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds, and therefore only Ferrari logo stickers are used. (If you preferred a better shaping instead of a real rear side grill, then 2pcs of parts 61409 could replaced by 2pcs of tiles and some additional stickers, see the picture 3.) My intent was to keep the width-length-height ratio of the real car and this size makes it possible. The model contains lots of details: for example the emblematic front, hood , side and rear intakes, the narrow black line on the front and sides, the front turn signals, the side view mirrors etc... Maybe the most challenging one was the iconic rear side with the vehicle registration plate and the rear spoiler, here there is a half stud offset. I tried to fill every unnecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The model has space for one minifigure. I suggest to use small or middle sized hair.

  15. After a half year of work I present you this bus.The goal was to make as functional bus as possible with least amount of motors.The result is fully RC bus with openable doors, propulsions and steering using only 3 motors. The steering angle is really good. Steered by Large angular motorPropulsion uses XL-motorDoors work smoothly & flawlessly. They are powered by L-motorPowered by C+ hub.Lots of interion & exerior details. Building and programming instructions for $9.99: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-100999 Video:
  16. This racer has rear wheel drive, without a diferential to avoid becoming stuck on slight ground changes. The default gear ratio is 1:1,667 which means it can run really fast if you give it space, but isn’t able to take on slopes, you can change the gears if you so wish when building, there is space for that. It is by no means a mechanical wonder but features what is called a “realistic pivot steering”, which means the front wheels don’t travel back and forth while turning, this allowed me to design the hood very close to the tires without the problem of colliding and causing friction, and it also allows for a very good turning radius. Main functions: -One l-motor powers both rear wheels with a ratio of 1:1,667 to make it run forward or backwards. -One servo motor controlls the ralistic pivot steering mechanism with an excellent turning radius. It's a nice MOC for some quick fun. Please feel free to leave your opinion in the comments. As usual, for anyone interested, building instructions and parts list are available at MocsMarket

  18. Hi, Happy new year! Calling for Lego airplane fans, especially jet plane fans. I tried to build some jet plane for years. But could not find a suitable part for jet plane nose. I tried some ways, but neither looks great. Any one has the same trouble? And any one has any solution? I have something like this And something like this And something like this And something like this But, non of them looks good and can universal.
  19. Hello Big Lebowski, Corvette and Speed Champions fans, do you remember the hilarious The Big Lebowski scene? Walter Sobchak (Dude's best friend) destroys a brand new, red Chevrolet Corvette C4 (1985) with a crowbar. This car, colloquially known as the 'Vette, is a two-door, two-passenger sports car manufactured and marketed by Chevrolet across more than 60 years of production and eight design generations. The fourth-generation was the first complete redesign of the Corvette since 1963 and it is known for its sleek look. It was produced from 1983 to 1996. An other inspiration came from one of my favorite Matchbox as a child, and that color scheme will be built soon too :). This car could be a nice addition to the set 76903 "Chevrolet Corvette C8.R Race Car and 1968 Chevrolet Corvette". A-Team color scheme is possible too :). Building instructions are available on the following links: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-80276/_TLG_/corvette-c4-big-lebowski/ https://www.mocsmarket.com/lego-mocs/corvette-c4-big-lebowski/ It is a studless build in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. I wanted to create a sleek model which is as accurate as possible in this small scale. I prefer to minimize the use of stickers to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds, and therefore this model include only one standard Lego sticker. My intent was to keep the width-length-height ratio of the real car and this size makes it possible. The model contains lots of details: for example the pop-up headlights (the model can be built either with opened or closed headlights), the black stripes on the sides, the gray bottom part, the glass hatchback, the side-view mirrors, the tiltable seats etc.. Maybe the most challenging one was the iconic rear side with the vehicle registration plate, here there is a half stud offset. I tried to fill every unnecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The model has space for two minifigures. I suggest to use small hairs. Without the seats minifigures with bigger hairs can be used too if they are leaned back. (The Walter Sobchak minifigure has a custom torso and head, similar ones are available in some webshops. Its other body parts and the crowbar are standard parts.)

    [MOC] Skoda 105 (Estelle)

    Hello Skoda and Speed Champions fans, Skoda 105 is one of the iconic Eastern Bloc cars of my childhood. It was a rear-engined, rear-wheel drive small family car that was produced by Czechoslovakian car manufacturer AZNP in Mladá Boleslav, Czechoslovakia between 1976 and 1990. Engine sizes were 1.05 and 1.2 liters respectively. The color scheme of this model is based on my father's first car. Building instructions are available on the following links: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-93968/_TLG_/skoda-105/#details https://www.mocsmarket.com/lego-mocs/skoda-105-building-instructions/ It is a studless build in the original, 6 studs wide Speed Champions scale and fits perfectly to the new City style cars too. I have minimized the number of the stickers to keep the flexibility of the parts in further builds, therefore only two standard vehicle registration plate stickers are used. I wanted to build the model as accurate as possible in this small scale, therefore it contains lots of details: for example the front ligths, the front grill with the narrow chrome line and Skoda logo, the side view mirrors and the rear view mirrors, the door handles, the black rubber stripe on the sides etc... Maybe the most challenging one was the C pillar solution. I tried to fill every unnecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The model has space for two minifigures: one on the front seat with small or middle sized hair (the rear view mirror assembly has to be removed in this case) and one on the rear seat without any hair. I prefer the model as it is shown on the pictures, but there are some modification possibilties: a) a rear windscreen can be added (there is a more detailed explanation in the last step), b) many of Skoda 105 cars has side view mirrors only on one side, c) on the real cars the color of the door handles and side view mirrors are sometimes black on the other ones they are chrome.

  22. Hello Lamborghini and Speed Champions fans, The Lamborghini Countach 2021: the supercar is reborn 50 years after the 1970s original. It is futuristic while also paying homage to the legendary 1971 design. The engine, a 12-cylinder hybrid with a staggering 769bhp, growls in a way only a 12 cylinder can do, while an electric motor adds another 34bhp to the output: a glimpse into the future of hybrid and fully electric Lamborghinis. Building instructions are available on the following link: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-93056/_TLG_/lamborghini-countach-2021 ( 20% off coupon on the first week: COUNTACH-FIRSTWEEK :) ) It is a studless model in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. I have minimized the use of stickers to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds, therefore only two ones are used: the Lamborghini logo and a solid black one for the narrow front grill. My intent was to keep the width-length-height ratio of the real car and this size makes it possible. I wanted to build the model as accurate as possible in this small scale, therefore it contains lots of details: for example the side grills, the front ligths, the front grills, the side view mirrors, the exhaust details etc... Maybe the most challenging one was the emblematic polygonal side opening. I tried to fill every unnecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The model has space for one minifigure. I suggest to use small or middle sized hair.

  23. This is my mod of the Mystery Machine. I think LEGO did a great job with the set but I wanted the van to be able to fit all of the gang. The sides no longer open but the van has doors that open in back. The interior is chock full of detective gear and can fit 3 figs in the front and two in the back. More pics can be found here. Let me know what you think!

    [MOC][Futuron] Retro Space Solar Ship

    Futuron - Retro Space Solar Ship [Futuron] Retro Space Solar Ship by Horlack, on Flickr ================================== The beginning/Genesis : ================================== At the beginning of September, I re-watched the old animated as X-Bomber at 43 years old ! It was my birthday this month. Don't ask me what went through my mind at the time, I don't know at all! I wanted to go back to childhood, because I have the impression of having aged. I had to straighten "the bar", lol ! Seeing these old Retro solar boats literally “blew my mind”. I never realized that a lot of anime from that era had a "strange spaceship" conception, transforming old 14-18th century ships / galleons with engines for space. Yet it was so obvious! And it was there, that suddenly, I remembered Jayce, Cobra, etc ... In short, I saw all the ships of the anime of that time scroll through my head, like a comet in front of my eyes (which booms crashing into my head). And no one had done this in Lego. At least I don't remember. In itself, the beginning of an idea or impression that smelled good, and / or had potential. It was the very beginning of the inspiration and brainstorming in my head for Lego Classic Space ! ================================== The concept : ================================== I did something unusual, non-conformism, eccentric, disconcerting and crazy at the same time. I make a double combination and double ration, animated 70-90 which it was the fashion of space ships and Lego Space Futurons 87-90. For a good Retro nostalgia I combined elements of the Azuris ship from « Message from space : galactic wars », the Cephalus ship from Star Fleet X-Bomber, Glory of the universe of Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, and the Solaris of the Mysterious cities of Gold ! 2 periods 70-90 in 1! Fashion Geek powa, total ! ================================== Animated Wikipedia source: ================================== https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Message_from_Space:_Galactic_Wars https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-Bomber https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jayce_and_the_Wheeled_Warriors https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mysterious_Cities_of_Gold ================================== Youtube animated credits for the nostalgic: ================================== Message from space : galactic wars / San Ku Kai https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3a7kge https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jfzb7kndOH8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ev846CoLg1c Star Fleet X-bomber: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=szZisbEQB_Q Jayce and the wheeled warriors : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y9K0SzFIf4A The Mysterious Cities of Gold : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enoK-1CW74Y ================================== I took again in inspiration: ================================== - The front and landing feet of Glory of the Universe. - Sails and propulsion reactors of the Cephalus. - The front spur and the hexagonal solar sail at the top of the Solaris mast. - Part of the sails and the structure of the Azuris. ================================== Remarkable elements, NPU, conversion of parts, techniques : ================================== I converted parts #4346 and #4345, in all directions, with levers, for the machinery. Part #44938 bionicle shield, with a "mechanical" aspect converted into an energy capacitor. Various parts of Droids (starwars) converted in the machinery and on the outer deck. Bionicle Shield #45275 converted into deflectors, on the deck of the ship. Kind of like "Viking ship/longship" shields. Big Trident Bionicle #40339 = excellent for large boat emblems in general. I used a slope technique for the sides of the hull. For the rear canopy in the hull, I used a SNOT technique with part #30249. ================================== Physical information : ================================== - 7,082 parts for 854 lots. - 2 weeks of brainstorming, intellectual reflection or "total blank" ...: passive or empty work. - 3 to 4 weeks of active work. - 60.8 studs width, 101.8 studs length, 78.7 studs height. - 48.7 cm width, 81.5 cm length, 63 cm height. - 5.77 Kg. ================================== Global : ================================== All Futuron figures, including the green Lego City minifigure and the lesser known "Educational & Dacta" minifigures. 9 crew members, 3 teams of 3 watch members. ================================== Exterior/outside: ================================== - Solar sails with 3 intermediate lookouts. They can rotate a bit. - Futuron logo, in stickers, on the sails. - 2 radars at the top of the masts. - Long electromagnetic barrel at the front. - 2 small laser cannon turrets at the front. - 2 large turrets at the rear, pulsed radius. - Wings with stabilizers at the end. - 2 small rotating turrets under the wings. - 4 landing feet. - Various elements of machinery on the deck of the Boat. - 8 deflector shields on the sides (Bionicle shield converted). - 2 large propulsion reactors. - Cockpit. ================================== Wheelhouse: ================================== - 1 captain / watch officer seat. - 1 seat Transmission of orders to machines. - 1 navigation control seat. - 1 communication control seat. - 1 alarm control seat. - Walkie-talkies, fans, fire extinguishers, binoculars, cups, etc. ================================== Interior/inside hull of the ship : ================================== - Small storage room at the front, with a ladder to grab onto the deck of the solar ship. - 6 beds with drawers below. - WC / toilet. - Sonic shower. - Kitchen / Cantina: sink, water, oven, cupboards, cups, bottles of food. - Table, bottles of food. - Machine room: control bar, control panel, turbines, fans, transformer, energy condenser, energy pressurizer, cooling circuit, heat transfer fluid, warning lights, ladder to climb to the cockpit, tool kit, tools behind the ladder. - Rear canopy - SAS by energy barrier. ================================== Conclusion: ================================== I built in a perspective of pseudo-realism, pseudo-likely and pseudo-consistency, with compromises with the Retro concept of the animated ones of the years 70-90's. I wanted something playable and fun at the same time. I had a lot of difficulty and trial and error, because I had never done a Lego boat. I worked several times until 4am ! I often work like this: as long as the inspiration is there, I must not lose it, and I work until I no longer see the time passing. But the opposite has also happened to me several times: several times the symptom of the "blank sheet" for 1 to 3 days, without knowing how I was going to build, find inspiration, think about the logic of the construction, etc. . This feeling of "emptiness", that you feel something is happening, and you have it on the tip of your tongue, but it does not come out! Annoying and horrifying sensation ! :) The inclination of the walls gave me intellectual problems. It took a long time to build the engine room. I had to redo it at least 3-4 times. I wanted a maximum of diversity and complexity at the same time. The confined space of the hull gave me difficulties: how to integrate "likely" elements in so little volume ? I have lost my hair several times. Just those damn shower and toilet, I had to spend 3 hours each, to do, undo and redo in all the sauces. Like a little monkey who tests all combinations. Shouldn't bring me a banana at this time, because I think I would have been screwed to make a monkey cry as a bonus .... lol [Futuron] Retro Space Solar Ship by Horlack, on Flickr (Zoom on Flick, picture Full-HD 9216 x 4608 pixels) [Futuron] Retro Space Solar Ship by Horlack, sur Flickr (Zoom on Flick, picture Full-HD 9216 x 6144 pixels) [Futuron] Retro Space Solar Ship by Horlack, sur Flickr (Zoom on Flick, picture Full-HD 9216 x 4608 pixels) Shiptember 2021 [Futuron] Retro Space Solar Ship by Horlack, on Flickr ================================== Source / reference on my project (progression in the time) : ================================== https://forum.brickpirate.net/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=25577 https://www.flickr.com/photos/horlack/albums/72157720062770130 https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?vanity=HorlackBricks&set=a.495422262040159
