herzlich wilkommen auf meiner seite! That's German for welcome to my page. =) I am actually not German, but I do study and speak it. So feel free to write or say things in German to me if you want. I am pretty much an AFOL, but of the younger variety (nearly 22). Nerdiness is second nature to me and I love all types of Sci-Fi, fiction, games, Star Wars, you name it. However lego was my first true addiction and it remains a permanent one (well until marriage maybe). I have built lego cities, town things, castle (great memories), pirates (also very cool), and of course much of the great classic space lines. Yet, what has really dominated my lego attention and appetite is lego SW. That has been my staple if you can't tell already and I only buy other sets for pieces or novelty.
As for SW lego, I really like to build my own designs and sometimes like to keep official sets. But yes, yes on to my lego MOCs. So far I have done a number of revisions on certain ships like Sentinel Craft which version 3 is due before summer. Also ships like my fav. Moldy Crow has undergone 2 substantial makeovers for a total of 3 variations, each one progressively better. I also did this with the Imperial Shuttle. That's really my philosophy on building, you can always improve what you already have. All you need is some imagination to add.
By now, I have experimented a lot with building techniques and lego has made some very nice pieces so basically my building has improved much in the last 2 years. I also have designed some custom minifigs of the SW variety. None are finished yet for viewing. Some of the episode 4,5, and 6 SW vehicles I am particularly fond of and thus that is mainly the era I build from. However, I like expanded universe things which are very numerous and creative in the SW universe. Plus not everyone has built them- ala the Jade Saber.
I don't much care for Episode 1,2,and 3 although I will say some of the Republic sets are very well made.
One final bit of lasting truth- tremendous thanks is owed to Saber Scorpion and his website of SSLF, where a lot of younger builders have given me great advice on my builds. Here's to you guys!
Ok well this is a long winded intro, so I wish you the best in building and hope you are inspired by my creations. Bitte Schon!
And a long over due thanks is to Crimso Giger who helped find a picture of the Blacktron Interceptor Base for me! What a helpful guy! And he is quite a proficient and amazing space builder too! Check him out.
