USCSS Nostromo - LDD completed
After a long time of headscratching (about 2 months) - it's done. The first big step in this project is closed... The LDD file is complete! This big Lady consists of 9023 parts. It messures 89 studs long,57 studs wide and 31 high. First i wanted to reach 10.000 parts, but now i'm completely happy with this result... ;-)
About this creation


Update 08.12.2012 : You can check it out in real bricks here





the reference material:






and here is my version, i hope you all like it ;-)
I'm not the man of many words - so go and have a look ;-)


































in the last pic you can see the Narcissus which Ripley used to get away...






The next step is to make the partlist and the plan (i have no idea how i should do this... - If anybody have one - please let me know ! )
=> than it's just to get it into real ;-) !!!


Update:
how i start making the partlist


an example of how the instructions will look like - i know... a crazy way to go with this partamount

Quoting Stephan Schumann For an Alien-films-lover this is the heaven! Your skills are impressive and respectfull! for the case nobody has written this yet ( I didn't read all comments): For creating the partlist an building instructions, you can create in the instructions-mode an html-file with the botton in the left-upper-corner, then you have it both. But check it before perchuasing the bricks, sometimes it lists only the half amount of bricks, then you should close LDD, open it again, and create the html-file again.
many thanks for such kind words Stephan! to create the partlist isn't the problem... i did what you said, and wrote them in a excel-list to get together what i have, what i need and what it will cost ;-) The mainproblem are the instructions by itself. LDD creates things you would never ever could follow... many pins put anywhere in the air and than 5-10 bricks are putted on, so that you can't see anymore where the pins are... So i decided to dismantel this lady in LDD and make screenshots - a hard work - 9023 pieces...

Quoting Clark Morningstar Hey Mihe, Congrats on a job well done! It is never easy dealing with the angles like are on this model, and you did a great job with the greebling, especially above the nose. Now we want to see it in Minifig scale! No, just kidding, I wouldn't wish that torture on anyone but myself. So again, Congrats! It is always nice to have a project be done!
thank you! yeah - minifigsize; this would be really a BIG PROJECT !!! i'm sitting on the instructions for that lady. Sometimes i don't know how i've done a section... :-)

Quoting Daniel Brilliant Man alive! That is a true beauty, no detail left undone, no facet unembellished. This has been such a massive effort from the beginning and I'm excited to see the end result. Since I work a lot in LDD and I know how much effort you must have put forth already, you could stop here and I would count this one of the best SHIPs on MOCpages. The fact that you are going to build this thing in bricks shows a crazy level of dedication. This is an amazing feat of engineering on a difficult and dynamic design. My hat is off Mihe.
Thank you so much for such kind words and following this lady Daniel ;-)! Yes i know i'm a little bit crazy in my head - but i have a dream... I'm waiting now for my orders to get this in real... ;-) ! transitionally im working on a real smaller ship to be on bricks - look for it - it's Novvember... ;-)

Quoting Dave Benson 9000 parts are a lot! If you think 2 months is a long time scratching your head, try 2 years it took to design my Cora (which soon will be built for real) ;) It's hard to judge from the pictures how good the structural integrity is but with so many parts it will be a tough challenge making it stay in one piece. Good luck building it!
many thanks to someone, who uses LDD like you ;-) ! I really hope this lady will stand. I made a technic brick frame, which i hope that is strong enough...

haha :) !! your not bad David... ;-) sure, i like Blacktron, but this was only a second thought made for the future projects which maybe follow. I thought - if i must by so many pieces, what else can i do with them in the future ;-) Thank you for that different, but very kind words !

Quoting Locutus 666 Awesome!!! Respect! A very detailed moc! Easy 5/5 I can recommend you to use the LDD-manager. Search via google for "ldd manager". Its an MS access tool which creates you a parts-list and check if the used parts are in form and color existing. It also creates u the wishlist for bricklink. Very useful tool! Instructions? Build it with LDD at your computer.
thank you ! also for the tip! the part list isn't the problem. I've done it so far in excel - to check also what i have and what i need... The problem is that i built this with LDD, but LDD creates stupid plans, which you can't really follow... For example: it shows in 10 steps all the pins you need first and than the technic-bricks...

Hi, this is absolutely amazing. The LDD instructions are a crime, when it comes to big models. I tend to rebuild a LDD model in Ldraw, that way you can add logical steps to the build. It is even possible to generate authentic looking build instructions. This means a lot of (double) work for you and sometimes it's just less time consuming to try the LDD instructions. But once again, really terrific model and I hope we'll get to see it in actual bricks.

Quoting David Roberts You must very statisfied (and relieved!) to have finished this epic build. It looks great and is packed with details, down to the landing gear and strangely angled intakes at the front. I think that it would work better in LDD if the bricks were different shades of black & grey, so that the detailing stands out more. Nonetheless, this is a beautiful and impressive use of Lego & LDD. Will you be making it in real bricks? I imagine that it would be quite expensive!
Many thanks to you David ;-) ! put together all the angles was hard work... I really was thinking about to give it different colors to see better the angles and textures, but one colored ships look better i think. And yes! i will do this in real bricks... the first order is done, but some other parts want to be ordered ;-) !

Quoting David Alexander Smith Quite amazing, I can understand why it took you so long. It's worth the wait. The angles and accuracy are spectacular. Out of interest, was their a reason you built it in black rather than the light grey of the original source images?
Thank you David ;-) the reason why i built this in black is easy => therefore i already have the most parts... and my money doesn't grow on a tree... :)
  November 9, 2012
Yeah i know what u mean. :) But all other options come with hours of additional work! Maybe you can devide your ship into smaler sections and build them seperatly?
