As you might imagine from my avatar, this is a mecha MOC that is close to my heart. It's also the first one I've tried exclusively in LDD, although I have tried building a small part of it to try and get a sense of scale and it could be pretty big in real life! Dai-X was a big part of the eighties puppet show Star Fleet, originally X-Bomber in Japan. He's a Go Nagai design. Having already completed the show's mothership, X-Bomber, physically and digitally, I had requests to do Dai-X because he's probably better known and more fun! I found two other examples of him around, but I decided to take a microfighter approach to him - so you have three component Dai-X fighters, that merge to form the big Dai-X mecha. I realised I could manage that because of some of the Ninjago mechs my son has - their hip/torso join lent itself to the sort of scale I wanted to work at. I also managed to generate LDD versions of the characters that were reasonably close, which was a real bonus. He doesn't look as slick as modern mecha, and my building technique is probably not the best, but I do hope to build him one day and I'll make the build file available digitally when I have a minute. Here's a picture to have a look at, there are more here too of course: Dai-X on Ideas I'm also on Twitter if you want a word, @StafFleetXBLego This is my first attempt at a mecha design so I'd be grateful for any feedback!
