    MOC : Super-Dad is Coming to Save the Day!

    Hi Kristel! Thanks for the nice comment! Greetings!
  4. @Ross Fisher Great choice for the minifigure, great pose, and great little vignette. Man that’s what I’m always aiming for with my little builds. Way to go sir!

    Food for thought

    Nice! I saw the title and thought it’d be a rules/meta thread or a BoBs loophole... Instead I’m hungry.

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors and discussion

    Actually I’m mistaken the wings are much bigger than the thestral

    It is a shame you can't @ link her on that comment! :P Yeah, Bob was certainly the main contender for needing work in the original.

    Harry Potter 2019 - Rumors and discussion

    So guys I’ve just been sent an image of Expecto Patronum and man it’s 10x better than I imagined, it has 2 Dementors (yes 2), Harry, Sirius, and the stag as said. It comes with 2 trees, different from the ones in Aragog. The leafs are sticking up now. There’s also a small plate to represent the lake. Okay so I just saw the first task as well! This one was an instruction manual pic but it shows everything and man you won’t be disappointed. The figs are the same but the Horntail is fantastic, it looks amazing regarldless of the Head reuse. Fleur’s hair looked different (I wasn’t aloud to screenshot this one) but I may be wrong, There’s also a tan tent build and something else small. Also for those who are curious the Horntails wings are an Existing mood. I think it was the same on they used for the Thestrals. And if you’re wondering, from the angle I saw the Dragon is not robotic
  9. Thank you for the compliment and the inquiry into my older X-Wings! Answers to your questions are below: ** Laser cannon parts from front to back. There are a lot of parts : 27 per laser, +10 more required to mount aesthetically and sturdily to each wing. Some of them are hard to find or relatively expensive to acquire: (The laser tip was 100% copied from an idea first posted by dmaclego) Laser Tip - Train Axle Bricklink part x1687 (idea from dmaclego) Tip fits into a 5102c08 4mm D 8L Pnuematic Hose (idea from dmaclego). Most people cut a longer hose to whatever length they need (which is fine - some of the older Lego set instructions ask the builder to cut hose). I'm a purist and just ordered an 8L from Bricklink. The curved flashback suppressor is a minifig Hockey Mask 93561 (idea again from dmaclego, this guy is a creative genius) (The build for this next part is pretty common/standard for X-Wings) Another train axle on the other side of the 8L hose to give it stiffness Some round 1x1 studs with open holes Then 5 round 2/3rd L pin connectors (18654) that need internal connection to hold them together many models just use a super long hose slid through everything. I wanted something absolutely stiff and non-wobbly - so I went with the below: These connectors are held in place internally by a couple 3/4 pin part 32002 (NOT the half pin with stud 4274 - those will crack the 18654 connectors, every. single. time.) Inside the 3/4 pins is a 3L bar and then a 4L bar exending past the 3/4 pin - leading to the round stud that eventually fits in the saucepan this leads to the spoked wheel with pinhole 30155, an expensive and difficult to find part on Bricklink. There is unfortunately no substitute as both sides of this wheel have the next part that fits in perfectly 2x 4143 Technic Gear 14 tooth bevel (Starting at this point, these are my specific new techniques) This leads to 4x 4529 saucepans, only in white or black, which pretty much dictated my model would be primarily white The 4349 Loudhailer is near the end of the laser, and fits into the open saucepan nicely, filling in any gaps - as you can see from my rear shot of the X-wing The very tail end of the laser is a 42610 11mD wheel with Center Groove The attachment points to the wing use the handle end of the saucepan - these slot from top to bottom into a white minifig utility belt 27145, then into half of a 35480 rounded plate with open studs, then finally a 35459 1x3 inverted tile (or a 11203 2x2 inverted tile, I had to alternate them to give the wing tip structural stability) am x151 white rubberband is then wrapped around the 4 saucepan handles, between the utility belt and the saucepans, to hide the remaining handle part You actually have to slide in all 4 saucepans at once into the slots - a somewhat advanced task as these tend to slide around while you try and hold all 4 in place. But it can be done. That's a lot of words, I'll try and post a picture sometime. *** This old Brickshelf link from 2001 shows an X-Wing build that was considered among the best at that time - even getting copied to one popular webpage list of "top ten" cool Star Wars items. It was creative enough given 2001 parts and building techniques, but it is a very primitive build by today's standards (and the lasers are too long). You can see my use of the 4213 roof hinge plate on the inside wings even back then - a technique I copied in today's model in a different portion of the wing. http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=2562
  10. LEGO now has MicroPython for the EV3. Supports multiple platforms. You'll need a micro SD card for the EV3. https://education.lego.com/en-us/support/mindstorms-ev3/python-for-ev3 Edit, just noticed it's already been posted. Mods please delete this thread.

    Pirates Mafia - Conclusion

    I think everyone thinks they suck after hosting a game... at least that's how I felt when I hosted Red Menace (though it was objectively not well thought out). I hope one day to be a true Loyal Pirate breaking Captain Redbeard out of Ford Eldorado.
  13. Thanks for sharing @markhchan! This model looks really slick - I particularly like the canopy and the greebles behind R2. What part did you use for the laser cannons? They look vaguely like the minifigure epees, but not exactly. Do you happen to have any photos of previous X-wings you have built?
  14. Hi, I am new so I am not sure who to ask. I searched the LDraw Topic Thread of files (which was amazing!). I noticed that Lego Kit 7242 (Lego City Street Sweeper 2005 release) was not showing up in the index, or searches. So, I am a Linux user, and run LeoCAD, I am eventually getting around to trying LDCad, but one hurdle at a time. So, I made an LDR file of the 7242 using LeoCAD. I did some quick screenshots below. Who do I ask about where to and how to submit to the KEY topic area? I don't want to interrupt the threading with a silly post, so I thought I would ask here. Any help would be appreciated. Here's the model as show in LDraw. Any help would be appreciated. Zeeverse
  15. Thank you for the kind words! I have some more photos on my Flickr page (click on link below), in 4K Wallpaper Resolution 3840x2160 for free download. If anyone wants any higher resolution images, just ask. The originals are 6000x3164. https://www.flickr.com/photos/7876498@N07/albums/72157704643424412

    [MOC] SPACEship

    This is beyond awesome. Great job!
  17. Exciting to view your post! Both MOC and photographic are beautiful, delight to stare at them for quite a while. And the application of many MF attachment piece part, does help the MOC to capture the design features very well, good to learn them.
  18. A few more notes and pictures: 100% Lego, no modifying of any sort on any parts. No cutting of hose pieces No stickers. No painting of parts No illegal joins except for the half end of a 3/4 pin into 2/3 round pin connectors x2 on each laser, and two 6587 3L axle with stud sides into a 6536 pin hole inside the model. This starboard angle picture shows a few more details. The proton torpedo launcher/gap has a modified tile 1x1 with clip (15712) inside it to create the illusion of a recessed round torpedo tube. You can barely see a portion of it in this picture below A straight on rear view showing the engine placement in a perfect (and movie accurate) square when in attack position, as well as a better angle of the rear greebles. The smoothness of the inside of the S-Foil wings, and the recessed 3/4 plate open panel (inverted 4213) is prominently noticeable even with the wedge plates. You can also see the full length of the exposed engine inside the wing.

    Thanks, I felt it necessary to include that scene!👍

    I can see the new motors being the basis for Technic-style Powered Up motors. I can also see the new Technic elements being created in more neutral colors for future Technic sets. Overall, seeing this is making me more optimistic of the Powered Up system. I feel that the wire clippers will also help a lot in MOCs that require lots of wire management.
  21. Awesome! Right in under the buzzer! Thanks for joining, Fangy. I've got the cups out and will start assigning characters and roles! Hooray! It's Mafia time!
  22. Emmet 's ..AND Benny.. SPACESHIP Thricycle! Emmet's Thricycle! (70823) is the original set this set was chosen because it use both technic and regular parts and is also a very special design. we wanted to keep the triple wheel design, so we made a triple engine ship. Each engine is can be oriented independently, each wheel still can turn. the frame is also equipped with red and green position lights. Planty protective bubble , with a healthy supply of soil and air. the other side of the ship is equipped with an articulated arm for the radar dish. The bubble can also be detached and be used as Planty's own mini spaceship The base/gas station had to be enlarged to compensate for the extra width and length of the vehicle. the catapult is replaced by a giant communication dish and the gas pump is now equipped for rocket fuel. The entire set

    Pirates Mafia - Conclusion

    Sorry townies. I did somehow screw up early in my Day 2. So this resulted somehow I got myself being targeted for attempting to fly under the radar.
  25. That's a hell of an introduction. An incredible version; worthy of a top three contender. The nose and fuselage are especially well done. Very slick.
  26. This is a masterpiece, absolutely beautiful
  27. by the way, does anyone know a good way to make rocket's guns from trailer 2 without using the overwatch pieces?
