EDIT : Professional building instruction available here : You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org /EDIT Hello everyone, Here is my latest MOC : a UCS AAT. UCS AAT by Anio, sur Flickr UCS AAT by Anio, sur Flickr UCS AAT by Anio, sur Flickr My FlickR gallery for more photos : And My Brickshlef gallery for even more photos : http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=540525 Few words about the model : - it uses a lot of tan bricks and I like that. Still, 2 parts (cones) are painted because not yet available in tan. I thank Nicks, a Belgian AFOL, for his help to paint those 2 parts. - the model has the features you can expect from a UCS model : all cannons rotating, with friction to keep an angle. The cannons on the sides use gears for that. - the model has a realistic interior with seats, controls, periscope, etc. The back door can be opened and the side panels can be easily removed to see more details. - the model is only made out of 1,000 bricks. I think it is a reasonnable amount of parts given the features included. - as usual, the model comes with a display card. - technically speaking, the model is not that complex. You have some SNOT here and there, and few other techniques. - but the design process was still tricky. First, I had to make the model "hollow" to put an interior. But this should not compromise the outside look. - overall, I had to adapt the real model for it to fit the Lego system. If you analyse closely, you will see that I totally redesigned some areas for the model to looks cool with Lego Bricks. It is hard to explain. But for you to get the idea, I would say that is was important to keep both a nice flow and the key lines of the model, in order to catch the spirit of the AAT.
