Upper Case “Y” Wing

.Tromas has obviously been seduced by the Dark Side or something, because he seems to have developed an uncanny knack for cracking out Star Wars MOCs which spectacularly nail the Star Wars style in all sorts of exciting new forms. Exhibit Y: the Koensayr YT-T3 Invader. https://www.flickr.com/photos/tromas/27916647301/in/album-72157669405200560/ Basically it’s a supersized Y Wing with two pilots up […]

To Boldly Tank

I don’t have any bulk liquids I need to haul through the icy vastness of space, but if I did this space tanker by Gamabomb would be ideal. I applaud the use of those big blue curve pieces and I love the contrast between the smooth surface of the tank and all the greebly bits around the edges. […]

Kessel Run in 12½ Parsecs

First up the Vagyr Corvette is a zippy little number that flies around shooting things. The Vaygr Missile Frigate lives up to its […]

Decloaked and Delightful

A while back a colleague of mine suggested I could build a D’deridex Class Romulan Warbird from Star Trek: The Next Generation. I took a look at some photos, noticed the complex curves and hollow structure and lost interest.  Fortunately however Jon Munz was undaunted: This is an incredible model, and Jon has really nailed the distinctive shape with […]

Support the Classics

I’m remiss in not sooner sharing this wonderful LEGO Ideas submission from billyburg. Why? CLASSIC SPACE. The Lunar Exploration Geological Outpost is a fantastic little playset featuring three main models: a 6 wheeled Lunar Utility Vehicle for driving about the lunar surface, a Lunar Surface Skimmer for zipping across and mapping the lunar surface and a larger Galaxy […]

Brick 2.0

This latest build by ska2d2 makes a bold design decision: it’s basically just a box with details. There’s literally almost no shape to it whatsoever apart from this big vertical box and the interest really lies in the detailing the builder has covered it in. I’ll be honest I’m a bit confused about the scale of the […]
