Death Star Trench Run

Post by Si-Mocs on Wed May 23, 2012 1:05 pm




Well, the Empire doesn't consider a small one-man fighter to be any threat, or they'd have a tighter defense. An analysis of the plans provided by Princess Leia has demonstrated a weakness in the battle station. But the approach will not be easy. You are required to maneuver straight down this trench and skim the surface to this point. The target area is only two meters wide. It's a small thermal exhaust port, right below the main port. The shaft leads directly to the reactor system. A precise hit will start a chain reaction which should destroy the station. Only a precise hit will set off a chain reaction. The shaft is ray-shielded, so you'll have to use proton torpedoes.


This was built for Star Wars Day - Toronto - and will be at Brick World and Brickfete - it also serves as ToroLUG's giant name plate Laughing

And of course the trench swoosh video:

Very cool. I like how you SNOTed certain bricks on the bottom like the hinges. And 5 stars for not using TLC mini sets!

Also this was blogged by Eurobricks if you didn't know.

Thanks all!


We actually thought about adding a midi falcon ... but the angle would have been wrong - would have to be like 3 feet in the air...



V - yes this will be at Brickfete. I might even let you swoosh the fighters through it.
