However, I can say that the model (if it were complete) would be 660M x 660M x 330 Bricks high, and is designed to split in 2, so that the interior can be displayed. Any minifigs that enter, will have to crawl along the passages, for thats the case with the real thing.
....both turned out pretty well.
A great build, and some clever techniques used. Defiantly learnt from this one!
shame the stand doesn't allow to see the UCS plate when displayed on an angle!
Thanks MAGNINOMINISUMBRA, I appreciate the comment. I do take a few liberties with the livery, especially with the ambulance service. The ones here are completely different on a white back ground.
Here's some samples and the link to my Flickr account if you want to see more.
Some buildings now.
Thanks. The middle one is the first modern one I've tried so thanks, glad it turned out.
Abominable Snowman !
....the pod is the best one so far for me. From the cool changy image on the front to the brilliant Tantive V corridor build. Love it!
I think I'm going to have to stop by to see this in person.
Will you be around this weekend and the next as well?
The Brick Live show is from tomorrow 20th untill the 29th, in Basel, Switzerland.
Just the excuse I need to go to Basel!
but today i plan on Building #70613 with the open all bag's in to a box build type.
thats right who needs numbered bag's..... :p
i am going old school lego building.
you lot remember them days right. when there was no numbered bag's and no cheat sheet in the top Left of each step...
well i ingor the Cheat Sheet most of the time.
~a building i will go, a building i will go, hi ho and lego go, a building i will go.~ :P
My modular street is getting more populated. Some rearrangement will have to occur shortly, as well as finding some suitable jumper plates to fix the figures down.
I got a couple of the master falls for some future pirate moc, but before parting it out I had to build it. Very enjoyable build. Liked the use of the tank tracks for the bridge and the small incidental details. Was surprised that the cage was not hanging from the branch, but instead on the ground. Had not noticed that before.
As I have 2 sets, I am having a go at building a larger structure using only the parts from the sets. First task, figuring out how to build a trap with the available pieces.
This works quite nicely. Next to make it look a lot better.
I have started opening all bags in one go on smaller sets. I am tempted to get another tray so I can have more pieces out, but I wonder at what point I will find their are too many pieces and searching becomes tedious. I have also seriously considered opening all the bags in one go on the UCS Falcon when I eventually build it....
Thought to combine it with some nano-figures. The nurse is asking the 'bobby' for the time (but the bell isn't there yet...) while someone is taking the water-route to sneak up on them!
And yes, I did harvest some parts from the Mountain police while I was at it!
I think the pair of 2x2 round tiles with the fan print on are my new favourite printed piece!
I was going to add that I especially like the "collapsing bridge" feature, the SNOT work on the sides and the trans-orange features, which are lit up with a light brick, for that realistic flame-effect.
The only part which is a little annoying is the tops of the archway, which needed a jiggling to extend the centre Technic axles up slightly, so that the "Hinge Cylinder 1 x 2 Locking with 2 Fingers and Axle Hole on Ends" would grip on sufficiently but, otherwise, the model is very robust and possibly isn't too far off what LEGO might have designed themselves, if they had made this set.
I'm looking forward to receiving the final BL order, which contains the remaining parts for The Prancing Pony.
Almost posted this in 'What is your Lego statis today?' topic, and then I thought: 'nope! isn't there an other designated topic for that!?'
Anyway this is a small set that just arrived, and I immediately build just now:
I love the minifigs, just wish TLG would give the troopers different faces for a change. The angry clone trooper face is sooo tedious, besides I find it difficult to believe that all troopers are human. Also no proper minifig SW blasters are included in these little battlepack sets which is a pity.
The speederbike is actually a really nice little good looking build. Only thing I changed are the way the handlebars are attached. Now the minifig piloting the swoopbike can actually hold on to them. I also used some tiny extra pieces lying around on the table to pimp it a little further.
All in all a nice little set, and i might buy a second copy for both the figures as well as the repulsor-lift bike.
Just finished bag 5 of the UCS Y-Wing and still feeling a bit "meh" about it.
