Comparison between this gunship and its official LEGO brother


It looks even cooler in a Venator Hangar




The following bricks are on the inside.
Therefore the color does not matter that much:
52107, 88646, 47905, 11211, 99781,
99780, 44728, 99207, 87580, 3701,
30414, 10201, 40490, 32449, 3176.

Part of the following bricks are on the inside:
Therefore the color does not matter much for some:
99206: 4x white + 9x any color,
87087: 2x lime + 4x any color,
63965: 3x light bluish gray + 4x any color,
6632: 2x white + 8x any color.
30374: 2x white + 10x any color.


I made an updated version with some improvements. I hope to post its instructions soon. 
Here is a picture of the improved version.



The improved version has wings that are one stud longer. The wing turrets have been modified.





Also the front door has added detail to it.

    Wow. This is so cool. The original TLG set falters in comparison. I wish I had come up with that. But my mind does not work that way. Thumbs up!

    Hey, great work ! I am currently working on getting all the parts to assemble and wanted to maybe ask a few questions if it is ok ?
    • 2 years, 8 months ago JBB_777 Level 11 Designed this MOC
      Sure, go ahead
      • 2 years, 8 months ago Wilhelmius Level 3
        So following the instructions there a few pieces, that you just have to stick in I assume, which is why at some points they don't connect. Furthermore extremely rare pieces like the raiser tooth parts are also not listed in the inventory or ldd as well I believe.
        Furthermore at some points concerning the raiser tooth beams I think easier to get bricks could be used.
        I just want to make sure, that it is still possible to get all the bricks to assemble.

        Oh and one last question, if you don't mind: In LDD of course you can't for example put the cockpit in, because the programm doesn't allow for narrow fits and such I believe, though I nooticed some things are not connected because of that reason, others also seem to lack the afformentioned rare bricks. Are there many bricks that aren't even in LDD or just the raiser tooth beams ?

        Thanks for the response your MOC is really amazing, best custom gunship I have seen anywhere !
        • 2 years, 8 months ago JBB_777 Level 11 Designed this MOC
          I think you are referring to the LDD file. The LDD file is not complete, bacause not all bricks are available in LDD. Bricks are not properly located in LDD as well like you mention. For these reasons I ended up designing this MOC in MLCad after all. You should buy your bricks using the part list in this rebrickable page. Not from the LDD. And please use the instructions that can be downloaded in pdf format on this rebrickable page. The one that will be generated from the LDD is a mess. The raiser tooth parts are essential for locking of the angles and for strength. So please do use them. I would like to know if you succeed in finding alternatives. I used an extra 3068b on the 15573 (rebrickable inventory numbers) in the forward cockpit. This improves the position of the pilot. Please note that two parts listed in the rebrickable inventory as 30374 are needed on the last page of the instruction pdf to fix the wings. Instead of the 24299 and 24307 I used six double wedges and cut them in half. Unfortunate for the double wedges but far easier to get by.

          Andgood luckwith ordering the bricks andhappy building of course
          • 2 years, 8 months ago Wilhelmius Level 3
            Thanks for the fast reply, yes I got a litle confused with the brick inventory, as it only showed 236 bricks, but I think I forgot there are far more of one type. So all of the bricks needed are listed there I suppose or I hope.

            with the 4442 I mean in places like above the cargo area, the construction that is connected with the second seat and the framework, there are a few of them placed behind the second seat which seem to also be replacable with normal lon tiles, seeing as they don't connect to any tubes or such. I just wanted to know if they were vital or could also be replaced.

            Apart from that I think I should be able to do it and thanks again for the response.
            I am looking forward to finally building it !
    • 2 years, 8 months ago JBB_777 Level 11 Designed this MOC
      The 4442 is essential in both cases. In the cargo area a normal plate would not fit. With the 4442 the stud on the end is missing, so it fits. Below the cockpit a raiser tooth part is needed for the hollow studs. You need hollow studs there because the plates on top are 1/2 stud shifted (little pin at bottom of plate fits in hollow stud)

        That does make sense, well that shouldn't be the issue, the bricks are fairly well to get.

        Anyways I really hope that everything comes together well and just wanted to ask one last thing:
        The Brick inventory lists every brick I will need, right ?

        Thanks again for the great support and for the great creation, it is truly the centerpiece of every collection !
    • 2 years, 8 months ago JBB_777 Level 11 Designed this MOC
      Yes, every brick is listed in the 236 items part list. Except for the 3068b I would get three instead of two if you can. This extra tile must then be placed on top of the 15573 for better position of forward pilot. Good luck building your gunship.

    So nice, I love the design of the moc, especially the trooper bay doors, I like how they are not like the lego ones, which are just plain simple. This is smaller compared to its official Lego brother, but it's far better in its design, If I could add a rating to mocs, I would give this 10/10 right away!
    • 2 years, 9 months ago JBB_777 Level 11 Designed this MOC
      Thanks Captainprice187...Always nice to hear the moc is appreciated. Spread the word to all your friends, so they also can enjoy it.

    All of my parts are shipping and I was wondering if you ever thought of building an AT-TE. I think you could do a wonderful job with how skilled you are.
    • 3 years ago JBB_777 Level 11 Designed this MOC
      Thanks. I might consider it...
      I am curious how much money you paid for all the bricks?
      • 3 years ago FunnierTangent9 Level 4
        About $160 from 16 stores.
        • 3 years ago JBB_777 Level 11 Designed this MOC

        • 2 years, 10 months ago JBB_777 Level 11 Designed this MOC
          I have three sons, aged 3, 6, 9. They all three play with it without to many problems....
          • 2 years, 10 months ago Jameseilers Level 2
            ha! that sounds like a pretty solid test to me!
  • 3 years ago FunnierTangent9 Level 4
    Hi! I'm in the process of ordering all the parts right now. It looks amazing and keep building my friend!
    • 3 years ago JBB_777 Level 11 Designed this MOC
      Great to hear that. Good luck and happy building.

      I used a cut in two halves wedge instead of the 25299 and 24307 by the way, bacause they are very hard to get
