Rebel Blockade Runner - Custom . Custom Rebel Blockade Runner in grays and black . This is my custom Rebel Blockade Runner. It is strongly based on #10019 with some structural changes, but most of the changes are cosmetic. I did not care for the largely white base of the original ship, preferring to use gray and dark gray (blay actually) with some black and trans-red for good measure. I am pretty sure there isn’t one white piece on this ship. It certainly took some time to build as I made it through Season 1 of Battlestar Galactica (new series) while I worked on it. Once it had been built, and I lamented the loss of many trans-red pieces that are buried inside and out of sight, I worked on the finishing to make it look ‘pretty’. The model went through many changes as greebles went on and came off until I was satisfied with the results (as much as I can ever be). Things I would change: 1) make the ‘body’ of the ship more substantial 2) go studless 3) have the delivery service work faster so I wouldn’t have had to work so hard digging through my unsorted bins for the parts I needed (I’m lazy) 4) how to have vivid day-dreams like Dr. Gaius Baltar (off of BG; without being schizophrenic and having to learn how to do the Haldol shuffle) This is my first custom Star Wars ship. My son and I have built most of the smaller ships with all the bigger sets still in boxes waiting for our next move. So what is in the future: 1) LOTR battle scene – Helm’s Deep. Parts and armour are rolling in to make this a reality as I am trying to make it about 1/10 scale as far as minifigs go. I have also been raping Bricklink of blay and dark-blay. ETC – Christmas (hopefully). 2) Moria/Balrog scene – need something to use my old gray/dark-gray on. 3) P.O.A. – based on Stephen L.’s drawings, which he has kindly shared with me, as well as pictures of his model. It will be to the same scale at about 1.2m long. I will likely make this one in stages and keep a running log similar to Mark Kelso’s log for his Invisible Hand. 4) Rebuilding the landscape – easier to build new models than rebuild one accidentally damaged. 5) Build the last two Pimm Industries tanks and vtol Parts are from Bricklink , if you haven’t been to this site yet, then you should be careful. It is like crack to a junkie. There is a C.A.G.E. questionnaire for alcohol addiction (not great, but useful): C = Have you ever thought you needed to cut down? A = Have you have been angry/annoyed at someone who suggested you should cut down? G = Have you ever felt guilty about your consumption? E = Have you ever had an ‘eye-opener’? If you can answer yes to any two of these, then you are high risk of being a ‘Lego-holic’. I am sure I can answer yes to all of them ;-) Shameless plug for a couple of great sellers: Lego Lady BrickExchange These sellers both offer a wide variety of parts, great service, fast shipping, and fair prices. www.leejones.ca More pics at Brickshelf
