This is my latest creation. It has some flaws (e.g. the engines), but it was sometimes very hard to find the right pieces etc. Otherwise I chose this scale,

because it was a challenge to build a smaller version which contains lot of details too.

pieces: 5320 (aargh, so many small pieces^^). My newer version has 5297 pieces (I eliminated some smaller flaws and exchanged smaller parts with

bigger ones to reduce the brick count).
building time: hmm, maybe 30 to 50 hours
scale: not exactly 1:8 but very close to it (~1:8,25) (compared to my 1:1 scale version of the LMS Explorer, which is 975 studs long)
construction program: LDD (but I have converted the model into ldr (MLCAD) and lcd (LeoCAD) files, too)

dimensions:
Length: 116 studs/ 91,36 cm/ 35,97 in.
Width: 17 studs/ 13,49 cm/ 5,31 in.
Height: 16 studs/ 12,70 cm/ 5,00 in.

 

Note: I've also uploaded this model on Mocpages: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/306994, flickr: http://www.flickr.co.../in/photostream and Lego Cuusoo: http://lego.cuusoo.c...deas/view/38716

On Lego Cuusoo it needs 10.000 supporters to get into the review stage and with some luck it could become a real lego set (probably a smaller version, because the 1:8 model is still very big).

Freaking amazing. Fantastic work!

Yes, this is brilliant! Although I was expecting an actual micro scale... This is more like the Midi-scale Millenium Falcon and Imperial Star Destroyer.

But still, great work!

Amazing work,

I really like this size model.

Thank you for your comments :) . A even smaller version would be interesting, too (e.g. 1:18 etc.).
Hmm, how big would be the smallest model you could still recognize as the LMS Explorer :lol: ? *building a version with one or more bricks ;) *

I built a 1:16 model. Can't find it atm, but I'll get the pictures if you want me to.

Do you the mean the ship from this thread?: http://www.rockraide...lms-mini-model/

The brickshelf link is brocken there but I have found your model on Lego Universe. Maybe you could upload it here again, please.

PS: When I compared my 1:1 model and your 1:16 model I discovered that your version is a exact 1:9 version :) (975 studs / 138 studs = 9 (1:9 scale)).

How about not?
Maybe for a mini version like this, but a full version would be over 25 feet long.
