Lego model I've built for my son

Postby karx11erx » Tue Feb 08, 2011 12:57 pm

My (6 year old) son is totally crazy about Star Wars. My weak apology is that while it's my fault in the sense that I allowed him to watch the Star Wars: The Clone Wars CGI movies, I am not giving a questionable example by being totally crazy about Star Wars and running around on cons every second weekend in a Darth Vader outfit (which would, as without a doubt not only most forum members wouldn't hesitate a millisecond to agree with, naturally fit my sinister and power hungry nature :mrgreen: )

So I've built Anakin Skywalker's personal ship 'Twilight' for him using the Lego bricks and parts we had bought over the time (mostly on flea markets). I admit that I used the official Lego Twilight model as an example (buying that one I couldn't find a reasonable justification for since I am not a millionaire, and the kit costs around 100 Euros). I added some detail for the heck of it, so no need to bother telling me the original ship wouldn't sport this or that extension. ;)

I have to admit that I found it quite entertaining to build a rather complicated Lego model, and that it wasn't the worst way to spend a sunday (and, if you are honest, isn't too different from playing computer games, or creating code, models or levels for them).

You bet that he is flying it around in our apartment all the time, and even prefers my company over my wife's now (hah!). ;)

Indeed that is some pretty nice way to spend a sunday (I also have some car lego models that I like to built) :)

And you made the model so cool-looking! that's some great work!! :thumb: (much like D2X-XL is ;) )

And yeah, I agree and vote for seeing you in a Darth Vader outfit! lol :bounce:

Awesome!

There is some lego Pyros out there on the net.
One of them was the Black Pyro from D3. It looked very much like it too!
They guy who made it said it took months to do because he had to search and buy the parts from all over the world. Some even off ebay.

Anyways, I've seen several over the years. Will have to look thing up again and see if they are still out there.

I'd be interested to see these. You can buy all bricks you need in the Lego online store, btw (quite expensive, but actually not too far from the price of complete kits if you wanted to buy all needed parts in that shop).

This is lovely Diedel :) very nice and accurate too :cheers: :clap: Great respects from me mate :mrgreen:

Starwars is in your vains like me hehe, I have 18 StarWars Starfighters hanging in my room with 4 G.I.JOE's, the large scale ones of course :) BTW the ship you made is what evolved to the B-Wing, which was seen in Episode VI: Return of The Jedi 8)

Which something I always wanted to show you and the rest of this board.

My mother canme to the idea to use Curtain rails to hang up these Scale 1/32 Starwars and G.I.Joes to my flat 2,65 meter tall ceiling, i took usage of 25 pound Australian fishing line to hang these behemoths up there 22 in total, 18 Starwars starfighters and 4 G.I Joe aircraft, they form my Gold Squadron, Gold Leader flies the red labeled Koensayr BTL-A4 -Wing Star Fighter, Green leader has the green A-Wnig escorting Gold nd Blue Squadron as you enter my room, Blue squadron are them B-Wings.

Gold Squad is mainly the Y-Wings.

Just made these today, since my collection that is airbourne is complete hehe... for now rofl :lol: :mrgreen: 8-)

And these hang above my bed, the B-Wing is Dagger Leader from Dagger Squadron, which is from the exanded universe from the Dark Saber books:

There you have them all :) No room for more either, just been collecting these along side my Descent / Freespace games, VGA cards and Dino-Riders 8)

Bringing back an old thread here but I just found something in my closet that I made many years ago and never shared.

Hi Diedel and others,

these are really great models. My son is also 6 now and LEGO is his favourite toy and I have build some small models from the other side of the universe...

Hi Yoshimitsu,

absolute brilliant work. I see a LEGO MOD for D2X-XL somewhere in the future... Just imagine, if you destroy a robot, all single parts of it could fly around in a level.

There are some really cool LEGO sites:

Have fun

Yoshi,

very nice Lego models! :thumb:

If you made them with the digital designer, do you have parts lists and detailled construction plans for them? I might be able to build a Lego Pyro GX out of parts we already own.

I could generate the parts lists and instructions for you, Karx, but it might be simpler to just send you the Digital Designer files so that you can inspect them more easily. I don't know if you have LDD or want it but I would be happy to send you the models.
