    [MOC] UCCS Acclamator

    Here we are! My very first UCS-style model is finally out, and it's a big one: the mighty Acclamator-class assault ship from Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Made of 5,152 pieces, at 72cm (28,4′′) in length, weighing 3,2kg, it's by far my biggest project to date. This 100% SNOT build was painstakingly modeled to accurate reference material, from exact profile dimensions to surface detail on top and underneath. The underside was also full of geomertic challenges due to its numerous angles and shapes. I wanted to include essential functionality like detachable landing gear for landed display, and openable hangar doors with boarding ramps that slide down to reach the ground. The ship also features a removable stand, as well as a hidden handle to make switching display modes easier. In addition to the "standard" version with Republic markings, I also made a "class-II", all-gray version, which comes with its own instructions and parts list. The Acclamator is technically one of my oldest projects: the initial version of the design was made right after the Torment in 2021, but I eventually shelved it as I wasn't truly satisfied with it. Since then I had so many requests for this ship that the idea of making a new version progressively grew on me, until I took the plunge in late January 2024. Starting the new design from scratch, I decided to scale it exactly to Martin Latta's fantastic UCCS (Ultimate Collector Series) Venator, which happens to be in ~1/1000 scale. So I hope my Acclamator will, along with Latta's Venator, form the basis of a bigger 1/1000 scale BrickVault Republic fleet in the future! ► Instructions for the Acclamator are available at BrickVault!

  2. +++ UPDATE 27/December/2016 +++ Happy holidays eurobricks! I have some new pictures of my Venator. You can check out my flickr for more pictures. I will upload more as soon as possible. First post also edited. greetings Kommander +++ UPDATE 3/December/2016 +++ Long time no see eurobricks! Today my Venator enters the sky above the ship yards of Rothana Heavy Engineering. As the project manager I proudly present you the capital ship “ATELLES”- a Venator class star destroyer. Back in 2005 when I saw the Star Wars Epi. 3 starting sequence in the theaters – I was like “I really have to build one of these giants!” Then a few years later and already earning my own money I started the wip. The plan was building a venator bigger than the Lego ISD (10030). While processing the project there were 2 points of massive improvements. Each time I change the size and the new version was bigger than the old one. The building time on the last version of the Venator I´m showing you in this thread was only about 2 years. Now be at university the time has come to finish this ship. Over the whole 7 years I ordered about 100 times at Additional to these orders I used a lot of my own bricks in storage. I don’t know how many bricks I used for the Venator. It have to be something above 45000 pieces with a weight of 65 kg. The construction of the inner structure and the frame is basically like the #10030 IDS. A structure made out of technic bricks carrying the whole ship. This technique is easy to scaling up to big dimensions. The Venator´s of Erik Varsegi and Iomedes were always leaders in supersized star destroyers and a good orientation for my project. At one point my Venator should be one of those as well and I destroyed the old version and made a bigger one. This Venator how hitting the length of 220 cm x 117 cm x 68 cm. A bit smaller than the others. However, the thing was building this ship as accurate as possible. Some details of the origin Venator from the Movie has been changed or replaced with own ideas like the frame structure at the surface. The overall impression has to match and looks smooth. For those they want to know about construction details here we go. In the middle of the ship is a massive string - the ship´s “backbone”. Different sections like the hangar or the thrusters are connected with it. The inner structure mostly consists of technic bricks, pins and plates. Simultaneously I build the “wing”-plating because the wedge-plates with their angles restrict the shape of it. And as you know the plating is a bit bigger so it can overlap the frame. The thickness of the plating is 5 layers of plates. One slope underneath and above the string create the first important angle. Each one has left and right technic bricks as well. On those the wings can be attached. Unfortunately I secured the underneath-plating with some wires because the weight was too much and I couldn´t find any alternative to fix this problem. It is the only thing that isn’t Lego. Glue also never touched this project. In every thruster is also a solid string with technic bricks. Rings consists of 8 hinge-elements are the basement for the use of round bricks for the shape. A unique technique which also looks pretty nice. To counteract a misalignment of the long thrusters I decided to install them with an increasing angle upwards. And as expected it works pretty well. The command tower as well as other sections can be detached easy. Reason behind this is of course for the transport. Next step is to exhibit this giant on events in Germany. Maybe I manage to change and improve some things unstill the first event. Finally the last step is selling this thing dissembled in components or complete as Moc. More pictures: - Kommander +++ Original Post +++ Hello Eurobricks, my name is Philipp and i`m a member of (IdS) and of course german :) Today i`m here introducing my work in progress UCS Venator. Some of you maybe discovered my litte turrents on flickr in various groups. At the beginning of the building progress in year 2008 i started with a size around 150 cm in lenght, but by passing the years i scale up the size to the Venator im showing you now. This ship hitting a lenght of 220 cm and has a width of 120 cm. Dimensions like Erik Varszegi`s Venator. Maybe a litte bit smaller. Btw. here you can see a picture of my first Venatorbuild. Looks kinda cute, isn`t it? Most things are finished...thrusters, guns, superstructure. I really can see the finish line. But this update/post is only for an overview. That means unfortunately no closeup pictures. The next and last milestone is the underside armor. In the meantime i`m going to fill the gaps and there`re still bricks that need to be changed. Before i forget; this is my flickr account: and here the original thread on IdS: http://www.imperiumd...estroyer/page-4 - Kommander
  3. Hey everyone, This is it! After the Torment, the Negotiator proudly joins my Midi-Scale capital ship collection, engineered with the same philosophy in mind: maximizing accuracy, features and proportions of the original model in a moderate size. Made of 3,145 pieces, 68cm (27 inches) long, weighing 1,6kg, the Negotiator is a medium-sized, modular Venator-class Star Destroyer holding on a single, unique Lego stand. This piece of work is the result of weeks of designing, engineering and intense testing. I wanted the Negotiator to be dense, massive-looking, intricate and packed with detail, while being compact and manageable. Building at such a scale, I had to take into account every possible constraint (balance, weight distribution, structure sturdiness) while never compromising any aesthetics (SNOT look, thickness, greeble). The Negotiator features every intricate part of the studio model: turrets, hangar and docking bays, engines, bridge, greeble... with utter attention to detail and proportions of the original ship, as seen in the Clone Wars movie. Hope you like it! ► Instructions for the Negotiator are available at Brickvault. More pictures on my Flickr page.
  4. Hello! -The professional booklet is a HD PDF file with 298 Pages and includes the parts list for Bricklink. -The model is composed of 2849 pieces and measures 80cm x 41cm x 23cm. -The price of the instruction is: 17.50 GBP/20 EUR/25 DOLLARS, to purchase them, please email me:
  5. It feels strange... but it seems to be done :) I don't know if anyone is still waiting for this, but if so, hear me out: The instructions are completed and available! Model Specifications: 1580 pcs./pzs. (1491 without stand) Weight: approx. 1 kg (2 lbs) Length: 44 cm (17 2/8") Width: 22 cm (8 5/8") Height: 13 cm (5 2/8"), + extra 10 cm (4") with stand I tried my best to design a detailed and accurate, yet relatively sturdy and swooshable model. Important (for me anyway) aspect is the exclusive use of currently produced and available parts (as of 2018). The average part cost I obtained during several attempts using BrickLink 'Easy Buy' option applied on the part list was ~ $180 + S&H from 2-5 stores. That's based in central Europe, buying only NEW parts and not optimizing for arbitrary colors of some parts. The lowest cost I have been able to reach was $140 + S&H, when buying all internal parts as 'non applicable' color. Safe to say I was pleasantly surprised by both price and the low number of required orders. Sure I might have been lucky, but over several tries in the span of last month or so, the number of different stores required to get the complete part list stayed consistently low. Building Instructions: 235 page high quality .pdf file Carefully crafted based quality (if I say so :D) step by step instructions Preface containing (perhaps interesting) information about the model development, and helpful build notes and tips for increased building comfort Two part lists in .XML format are included, one for the ship, the other one for the stand I took way more time with this than I should have and a lot of that time was spent on inefficient fiddling with some unimportant detail :) Sorry about that, that's simply how I am. I hope that at least some of the effort was worth it ant someone will appreciate it. I decided to price it at $20 If you are interested in getting the instructions, please email me at Cheers! Kristof

    Custom Venator MOC

    Aloha! Im new here. The end. Just kidding. If you're willing, I'm in need of some help. So I'm attempting to build a custom made Venator Star Destroyer using 2x4 wedge plates instead of 2x3 wedge plates. Ive built part of the frame, however, I noticed when the plates are aligned with the central beam, the frame and plates do not align perfectly on the sides. They are off by a few millimeters, probably 1° or less. Is there a method, pattern or dimensions that would create a more accurate alignment between the 2x4 wedge plate and the frame that I have? Or would it be wise to scrap this and go with 2x3 plates instead? Note: the plates will have a slope when its near completion. p.s. eurobricks wouldnt allow me to submit a photo bigger than 102.4 KB. so i cant show the frame that ive built. Link to show the bow of the frame.

    [MOC] Midi Venator - In Progress

    Post #1 - October 6, 2018 I was originally inspired by @krisandkris12's Venator. While waiting for his instructions, I decided to give the venerable ship a try, albeit at a slightly smaller scale. The ship is currently 37 studs in length, which makes me even more excited for @onecase's ISD instructions as they'll scale very well together. This is a rough pass at it, and a lot still needs to be improved. A couple of future changes include... -Turrets needs to be spread out more -Backside taper of the bridge is too shallow -Trenches are currently hollow -Needs more engine detail -Nose turbo lasers need a hull recess -A myriad of other subtle inaccurate details Update - October 10, 2018 Summary of changes - Fixed tail - Changed bridge from brick build to plate build - Added detail around turbo lasers - Added trans blue 1x2 to side hangar bays and closing doors - Changed engine detail and layout Update - October 14, 2018 Summary of changes - Lowered the top two hull pieces by one plate to make the spine protrude and to make a shallower profile front and back. -Switched to since LDD didn't have the 2x2 corner tiles. Update - October 17, 2018 Summary of changes - Made the tail taller -Changed length of small and large engine - Moved the command tower forward and added tiling on the side - Filled in the trench a little better -Widened the ventral hangar bay
  11. Hello, all! Here is my UCS Venator Class Star Destroyer, I began this project back in 2016 and it is near completion. Instructions will soon be available, look further into the thread to find examples. Here is the old thread if anyone is interested: Update: Here is the current model as of today (15/02/18)! Thanks, Ellis :)
  12. If the lengths on Wookipedia are correct, then it's also in scale with the Acclamator-class cruiser from the Planet set 76007, released in 2013. C&C welcome!
  13. Hello everyone! It's been a while since I made post about my MIDI-Scale starships featuring on LEGO Ideas. Lately, I finished this new image showing them in this epic combat from the very beginning of the Episode III. Considering my poor skills in image editing I'm quite satisfied with the result. You can find more info on MOCpages ( More images and informations about both ships can be found here: MIDI-Scale Invisible Hand MIDI-Scale Venator Star Destroyer Thank you for stopping by and special thanks to everyone who bothers with giving a support! Happy building!

    [MOC] [WIP] Big Venator project

    Hi everybody! I'm Pieter, I live in Belgium and I am a new member here. As all of you, I' have a serious Lego addiction. My main theme is Star Wars, but I also like Castle and Pirate projects. Today I wanted to share my current large scale project which is a 8 foot long Venator. I started this project almost three years ago in september 2013. At first I wanted to do a replica build of Erik Varzegi's/Iomedes version, but along the way I made a lot of special modifications myself :p This included deleting almost all the studs, to get a nice clean and smooth look. Some people don't like this, because it doesn't look like Lego anymore... I like it, especially now that it's starting to look like a giant studiomodel :) Anyway here are some pictures, hope you like it! You can find more pictures on my Mocpage: or visit my page on Facebook:
  15. Pierrick Puchois calls his creation a “Personal interpretation of the well-known Venator”, inspired by a 3D rendering that was also sort of a personal interpretation. I think he’s still nailed many of the elements of a true Venator, especially around the bridge, the main turrets, the engines, and the secondary docking bays. The only elements that at first glance really look like they don’t belong are those exposed greebles behind the Open Circle Fleet emblems, and the slightly thicker gap between the dorsal and ventral hulls. While I think that overall gives it the impression of being just barely bulkier than a normal Venator, which I’m not sure I like better, I can’t argue with the really nice detailing in that gap, and really all over the model. This and other creations which can't be viewed in this forum are...

    MOC: The Nightwing

    Hello everyone! The Nightwing cruiser was an idea I got while thinking of a crossover idea for DC and Star Wars. The Nightwing takes it name from its color scheme, which reflects the colors of the DC character Nightwing. Updates coming soon.
  17. I have always loved Lego since I was a child but never really got into building my own stuff. This was mainly because I am the type of person that builds Lego for display and not for play. I care about how accurate the Lego model is compared to the real thing and don't care at all about how fun or practical it is to play with. I can't afford to have a huge collection of Lego to use to create models up to my standards. I also wasn't skilled enough with creating original physical models to be able to use the various virtual programs made by fans to create stuff that I was sure would actually work in real life. These programs were essentially CADs with a library of Lego parts you would "stick" together. I use the term stick because that's what they were doing. The programs couldn't actually recognize proper or more importantly improper connections. For master builders this isn't a problem. For some one new who didn't have the blocks in real life to test and couldn't afford to spend $100s buying bricks only to realize the model wouldn't hold together structurally in real life this was a huge problem. The only other alternative was Lego's own Lego Digital Designer which was incredibly basic at best. Until now (well for the last few years but I only just realized). The big difference between Lego's own program and the fan's was that while it was still simpler and more restrictive it could actually detect if bricks are connected or not. This was huge for someone like me (sure the program can't tell what the model's structural integrity is like but I like to think i'm skilled enough to do that). The barrier between me and making my own Legos was finally broken. I've spend the last week designing my own Midi-scale Venator-class Star Destroyer. This was because I love the ship's design and Lego only made a Play-set version which looked terrible. is not There have been many MOCs of the Venator ranging from simple 40ish piece models to that famous 35000 parts one and everything in-between. I've found the 4000 piece models scaled like the offical lego Star Destroyer or recent Executor to be the best looking that aren't made from tens of thousands of pieces. There are even instructions for some of them http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=132718. They however will cost at least $500 to make.... so I decided to go smaller. There are many amazing mid scale fan creations but none of them are willing to share building instructions (either since they designed it using real bricks or they just don't want to). There was one that was willing to share Instructions (by Chris Deck) http://sw.deckdesign...tor/venator.htm and I used that as a starting point but it felt restricted aesthetically since the author decided to build it to a scale of one stud to 50m. My first attempts based on the above instructions: After this first attempt which was based heavily on the official Midi-Scale Imperial Star Destroyer I decided the model looked too fat vertically compared to the real thing and started to work on a thin version based on another person's MOC by V1lain. I contacted the author and he said the reason it was never finished was because it was incredibly structurally unsound (as I soon discovered myself while trying to replicate it) In the end I decided to start over and make one completely myself (which took heavy inspiration from Brickdoctor) Around 15-20 hours later and I finally finished my first MOC (after basically going into hermit mode for a week). For my first ever original build I'm quite proud of the final product. I still feel she's way to thick verticaly but that was the only way to ensure structural stability. I am 99% sure this thing will be rock solid in real life and am just waiting for my parts to arrive before building it. I'll make sure to add pictures to this post when i'm done. For reference it cost around $100 to aquire all the parts for this build on BrickLink or around $0.18 per piece (slightly more expensive then an official Lego set). Since I had such a hard time finding instructions I'll post my work in progress and final version LDD files for anyone that wants them. This is how it turned out: 541 Bricks (with stands and no obiwan) More Pictures: *edit* I've finally finished building the initial model. There are a few problems however. First of all some of the bricks were incorrectly shipped (some color and a few wrong pieces). The much bigger problem however are a few structural weak spots caused by the types of bricks (60471) I choose to use for the rigging. They lock in nicely but at the wrong angle. Replacing them with the non-locking hinges (60470) should fix this. I also had to take a few pieces out of the trench to get the close seal i'm looking for (LDD isn't perfect/ doesn't actually simulate physics). I'm going to have to rework the bow's trench near the nose of the ship. There are also a few structural weakness on the "wings" that I need to look into. Still; replacing the rigging should solve almost all the problems. On the bright side (aside from some bricks that are the wrong color) she looks pretty much identical to the 3D model. For my first MOC i'm really happy with the results so far and now that I have a physical model I am confident some minor tweaking here and there should make her nice and durable. Surprisingly making a model entirely in LDD wasn't a total disaster, a testament to how far Lego's software has come. I'll post the version that wont fall to pieces at the slightest touch once my new parts arrive in a week or so. Venator Final NOT READY TO BUILD.lxf
