Who dares to build this?
Eurobricks is a really great source when you want to find new models. Now here is something that is already rather old, but popped up again in the Star Wars forum today due to new interest. I hadn’t seen this creation in January and it had some serious attention back then. The creator Thomas Benedikt (Fox Hound) made yet another Executor-class Star Destroyer. He claims it is in midi-scale, but that doesn’t say anything here.
This beast is made in LDD and approximately 13ft (~4m) long. The files he created consist together of around 70000 parts, but he hasn’t built the interior. He also estimates this creation to weigh around 100kg, which is quite a lot and would need serious non-Lego support.
Another nice shot Fox made is a battle scene where he used lightsabre blades as effects for the ship turrets. I like it a lot.
A little later in the thread, render-master Blakbird chimed in and offered to make some renders. He also added some lighting and the results are really cool and atmospheric:
I hope you like this one as much as I do. For more details, please follow the links below.

Porsche 997 GT3 from Crowkillers
Paul Boratko alias Crowkillers is already pretty famous in the LEGO community for his ingenious LEGO Technic® cars in the scale of ~1:10. His latest creation is the Porsche 997 GT3. Having his instructions on hand, I decided to fill up my parts collection a bit more and build this great car.
