    Hey all! Here is a thread devoted to my LEGO-esuqe building brick projects!

    My first building brick starship is the Galaxy-class USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D!

    I also take requests, so if you have any starships or props you'd like me to build, let me know! :)

    I almost feel guilty to admit this, but they aren't actual legos. They're a Dollar Tree equivalent. LOL I can't afford brand-name legos in the quantities I need to build things like this.

    I couldn't tell the difference. And that's a pretty good facsimile of the E-D considering the limitations of working with square-cornered pieces. :techman:

    Cool!

    Reminds me of my pixel art of the E-D during TNG's first season that I did on my Apple IIc. :) I took a (bad) picture with my 110 camera, but I seem to have lost it. :(

    I was once on a quest to build a Klingon BOP from bricks after TVH. The problem was that the bird I had in mind would have been far too expensive and we did not have generic LEGO pieces in those days.

    You know what, looking the size (not big) and the choice of medium (fake-Lego) that is damned good! I can tell that's the E-D man, and that's pretty fucking cool!

    My dad used to think that the LEGO sets that he was buying me allowed for me to build the picture on the box and nothing more. He didn't get it until I started showing him my own ships, etc.

    Nothing I did came close to this!

    And yes, it's obviously a Galaxy!

    Here's some older pics of a Danube-class runabout I built months ago. This was done with LEGO brand bricks. :)

    I miss LEGO

    I promised myself that when I get classroom of my own, I'd buy a few boxes to second the classroom...

    SNOT means Studs Not on Top.

    The undeside of the nacelles have wing pieces with the studs visible on the ventral view meaning that for whatever reason you've rotated them 180 degrees compared to the other bricks in the build.

    OH, I get it now. Sorry, I'm not up to speed on Lego lingo. :)

    Yeah, some problems can only be solved by using SNOT. LOL
