I’ve been playing with this shape for a while. It’s supposed to be one of a number of engine pods for some sort of larger VTOL craft. They mount at each corner and swivel to allow the ship to maneuver. I’ve not got enough Lego to build the whole thing so I’ll have to be content with just building the engine pods for now…

Mk1 mobile laser platform.
More messing about with LEGO. It’s a mini 4×4 scooter thing.
Some kind of LEGO mecha thing.
Fitting the circuit inside a brick
With a bit of help from my Dremel I’ve got my beacon circuit fitted inside a 4×2 Lego brick.
There’s not much to say about it, but there are more photos to see here.
Another Lego Millennium Falcon
This one is a little bigger than the last. I’m not quite as happy with it though as the overall scale isn’t quite right and LDD doesn’t have parts in all colours so for example the cabin is grey whereas I really wanted it to be trans-blue.
Again you can find the LXF file here.
Mini Lego Millennium Falcon
I’ve was playing with Lego Digital Designer and almost accidentally found myself making a mini Millennium Falcon when I happend to drop two wing parts next to a couple of 3×3 rounded corners. Unfortunately I don’t actually own the necessary parts to build it in real life. I’m not certain if it’s that stable as there’s not much holding the middle of it together.
But anyway that’s a good excuse to buy some more parts from bricklink!
The LXF file is here if you are interested. If you build it, let me know and send me a photo.
It’s starting to come together.
I’ve built a new version of my previous prototype that is specifically designed to fit withing a Lego 4×2 block. The software remains pretty much the same but the circuit layout is rearranged.
More information and photos here.
More work on LED police beacon.
I’ve spent some more time building a prototype PCB for my LED police beacon project. Read more about it here.
Lego police beacon prototype
With all the spare bits of Lego I bought the other day, I knocked up a quick frame to support my police beacon so I could make a quick video.
