MOC: N.W.E.F. ‘Hawk’

Formerly a member of the long-gone New World Explorer fleet, the Hawk-class fighter jet soared through space on many a scout mission. The single-engine fighter was the fastest and most versatile fighter in the fleet, but was lightly armed and armored. It does have a large fuel tank and powerful engine, plus twin blasters tipping the wings. The wing ends are also reinforced, so that only one extending landing gear leg (located under the main power converter) is necessary to land the craft and balance it perfectly on flat surfaces.

The construction of the ship itself is quite unique, employing multiple advanced building techniques. Not only that, but the wings rotate with perfect friction, and the cockpit opens to seat a minifigure at the controls.

This was one of Brickster_Tim’s LEGO Ideas projects, first released Summer 2016. While it never received much support, it is still worth posting here.

MOC: Space Launch System Block 1 Rocket

Nasa’s Space Launch System, or SLS, is the most powerful, advanced space vehicle that has ever been created to visit planets of our solar system.

The Space Launch System Rocket will launch crews of up to four astronauts in Nasa’s Orion spacecraft on missions to explore multiple, deep-space destinations. Including more payload mass, thrust capability, and highspeed energy than any and all rockets that came before it.

SLS is designed to be flexible and evolvable and will open new possibilities for payloads, including robotic scientific missions to places like Mars, Saturn and Jupiter.

The Space Launch System team continues moving full speed ahead with production and engineering of the first exploration-class rocket since the Saturn V. They continue to make progress aimed toward delivering the first Space Launch System rocket in 2018 to Nasa’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida for its first launch.

Now The SLS is finally made in LEGO[Or at least its close, it needs to get to 10,000 supporters first], so you can take your bricks to the red planet too. The set is built to 1/100 scale so it is built a bit smaller than the current LEGO saturn v rocket on shelves.

Please watch this video to see what scientists think lift-off will look like.

Includes:

563 pieces[Includes minifigs]

Three minifigures [note: Paul and Karl are actual workers on the rocket!]

two solid rocket boosters,

and four RS-25 rocket boosters

MOC: Octan HPL Drill

Based on the Andromeda’s Gates forum on the Eurobricks fan site, the Octan High-Powered Laser (HPL) Drill is used for drilling for much-needed resources on tough terrains for the Octan Corporation planets in the Andromeda galaxy. It has an opening dome cockpit with controls, unique tri-legged design, Octan color scheme, and extendable legs, and is foldable into a compact mode.

“I lost most of the photos in an unfortunate hard drive accident; but since I was able to salvage this one (though not very high quality), I figured it was worth sharing anyway.” – Brickster_Tim

MOC: Three Moons Starship

“This ship has taken me a long time to perfect and I’m very happy with how it turned out. The main photo has been edited to enhance it.  This is a very stable set and is hard to break.  The wings are tilted but fit to the body tightly and with small gaps. Continue reading

MOC: Octan Epsilon-class Cruiser (mini)

At only 8 inches long, the miniature version of the Octan Epsilon-class Cruiser is easily recognizable and masterfully crafted. Almost every detail is represented well in mini fashion.

MOC: DX39 Assault Craft Phase II

“In my opinion, this creation marks the beginning of the employment of unusual building techniques in my works. It was created for a sideways-building contest (where you have to build a spaceship using the sideways-building technique). I built the main wings, then constructed the cockpit using sideways building. With a main engine, secondary thrusters, blaster cannons, missiles, landing gear, and more, this one remains one of my favorites.” – Brickster_Tim Continue reading
