I am working on a historical train MOC that is 15 MILS BP in size. It's based around an early Stevenson's Rocket train which will be good for train shows, but I'm also making a Thomas train so that I can use that same display as Sodor for pop culture conventions that have fewer train nerds :)
It's been nice to get a bit of the backlog built this weekend!
I'm going to build a Blacktron set each day until then!
"Oh... It's... beautiful!"
Absolutely love this set, takes me right back to my childhood, much more than #10497 Galaxy Explorer did, as this actually felt more like classic space - my biggest gripe with #10497 was that it felt over-engineered, more akin to a UCS model than classic space) and even if some techniques were updated and stickers needed applying rather than printed parts it feels like classic space when handling the completed model.
A certain amount of swooshing will occur this evening, purely to test structural integrity and any pew pew sounds will be entirely coincidental!
The white rabbit is delightful! The alternate builds look great too.
Tusken Raider is awesome.
The Clone Troopers are standing on cool yellow 1x3 plates from PaB- or are they skiing?

Gibbs Rule #9: Never go anywhere without a knife.
Three careful slits to cut the glue joints and you're in... :)
I think my only criticism of #40580 is that I think they should have used yellow plates under the 1x2 trans-red tiles.
@560Heliport So do I, plus two 2" folders, two flashlights and enough crap to give Batman a backache. LOL
Glued them to 4x4 tiles:
The paper instructions do include instructions for the alternate build pictured on the back of the box.
