This is an older build by the talented Damien Labrousse, but caught my eye for its really daring design. It’s entirely asymmetrical, with one side dominated by a big fin and the engine block; whilst the other has a smaller fin and gun/sensor pod thingy. I know from experience that these asymmetrical designs are harder […]

Bird of Obsession

My wife frequently tells me I am obsessed with LEGO. But believe me I’ve got nothing on Kevin J. Walter, who has spent the last 15 years trying to build a perfect LEGO model of the Klingon Bird of Prey from Star Trek. He’s recently achieved that goal and the results are astounding; so rather than […]

Bird of Cuteness

We’re having a Bird of Prey themed weekend here at; and we’re starting at the small end of the scale with this teeny-tiny offering by foxprimus101. What’s not to love about this palm-sized chuck of adorable Klingon war machine? The overall shaping is superb, the details are spot-on for the scale and it all captures […]

Colony! Colony! Colony!

I love the idea of a gigantic starship sailing through space to colonize a new planet; but what exactly are you going to DO when you get there? Sunder_59 knows the answer – you’re going to deploy all the specialist colonisation equipment the big starship brought with it, of course! Behold the Patriach Class Colonial Ship. Firstly, this […]

Economies of Scale

If I’m building a LEGO spaceship I generally think “is this going to be minifig scale or microscale” and get on with it; but Tim Goddard isn’t constrained by such rigid concepts: he’s built his Tigress Zero Gee racer at an even bigger scale entirely of his own invention! Meet Octana, the pilot; entirely brick built and standing […]

A Harrowing Tale

Every now and again a MOC presents itself which I try to blog and realise I’ve got nothing to say other than “Oh my god that’s AMAZING!”. One such case was the Harrower Class Star Destroyer model by Koen Zwanenburg (Koen on Flickr). Not quite a SHIP at 75cm long and consisting of about 5,700 elements; it […]

Defiant and Reliant

You know I’m a sucker for a good Star Trek MOC; and foxprimus101 has served up two. I’ve never been a massive fan of the USS Defiant, because whilst I really dig the role it played in Deep Space Nine and the idea of a purely combat driven starship is really cool; I think the design is a […]
