Warp Nacelle troubleshooting
Join to comment
I see that many people have different ideas on how to make the pylons that hold the nacelles up, primarily on the ones during Kirk's era. When I built the 2009 Enterprise, though, The click- hinges that I used didn't work very well. So how do you build stable, good looking warp nacelle pylons that work?

I use various bricks and slopes to get the right look and angles of the pylons. I connect them to the ship and nacelles with the rocker bearing 1x2 and the 1x2 plate (rocking). Look them up in LDD. Its basically a hinged 1x2 brick. I've used those in almost all of my real lego ships. They are very sturdy. I just reuploaded pics of my recent ship designs. Check them out for ideas if you need to.
