Whatever else you may think about Rogue One, you’ve got to agree they did a nice job putting in references to the other films and TV series. One that got fans of the Rebels TV series purring like kittens was the scene where a Hammerhead Corvette rams a Star Destroyer. Cue this LEGO version by […]
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 […]
Star Trek Discovery hasn’t even aired on TV yet, but that hasn’t stopped me making a LEGO model of the titular USS Discovery. Back in the late 70’s, Paramount developed several projects intended to bring Star Trek back to the screen. One of these was titled Planet of the Titans and went as far as […]
Like all self respecting nerds I went to see Star Trek Beyond last year and thoroughly enjoyed it. Being also a LEGO nerd, I rushed home and designed a model of the USS Franklin in LDD (whilst listening to the Beastie Boys, as I recall). I was really busy at the time, so unable to […]
I’m pretty sure this is the first post I’ve done about a virtual spaceship, created using LEGO building software and rendered in 3D. This is odd because a) I build all my MOCs in LDD as well and b) I run a CGI animation studio, so I’m very familiar with 3D, rendering and such. The Antares […]
It’s shameless self promotion time again. Behold the Requin Alpha: Having built the Classic Space Carrier some months earlier, I set out to build a Blacktron themed microscale ship loosely based on 6894 Invader, and somehow wandered into making a pirate gunboat in dark bley and dark red! However I was really pleased with how it turned out: […]
Carrion? Carry-on? Get it?! Oh never mind. MEANWHILE over on Flickr BobDeQuatre posted this lovely little KH-1 Vulture Bounty Hunter ship. This is one of those groovy designs that has to swivel and fold up in order to land – like this: Vulture… Carrion? CARRY ON Bounty Hunting. Nobody?! C’mon!
This is our second virtual build – and it’s a doozy. I love the slick shaping of this little Scrapper Shuttle by tsower; with its neat blue/grey colour scheme and really impressive white markings. But it was the intakes on those big engines that caught my eye – there’s a really nice use of the tapered […]
