I used the "Shut Up and Build Week" for including backlights into my X-Wing.
First I needed a hole directly in the middle of the big white bricks. Because we don't have such a small driller I did it with hammer and nail. Worked pretty well.
Image

The wires from the leds were a bit short, so I decided to use two batteries. The one connection I hided in the "Lightsaber closet", the other one above the wing mechanism.

The end result:

I built this:

This was the culmination of my month-long (so far) Starcraft II project. This is composed of:

Terran Marines, Terran Hellions, Terran Banshee, Protoss Zealots, Protoss Immortal

The scenery was borrowed from my roommate's Jurassic Park display.

Some sort of space car thing, I scrapped something similar to make this, but I think this came out better. More, and better quality, pictures sometime soon.

With only four sets at my disposal, I wasn't going to build anything, until Collin threw down the guantlet. Unable to decline, I built this thing. I call the colour scheme "alien camo", but it's really a side effect of the two creator cars I have being green and yellow. The other 2 sets are both versions of the Clone BP, in case you're wondering. Anyway, enough talking, I give you the Clone Rainbow Road Warrior, or CR-RW, for short.

I've also been busy on LDD, with my mini Colonial Vipers:

Pics are links, they'll take you to my Flickr.

I've been working on this:

Image

Colonial Viper from Battlestar Galactica, it's almost finished, waiting on another BL order and that should be it :D

Also got a couple new sets, Vader's TIE and the Assassin Droid Pack:

Image

No picture of the Assassin Droid Pack but it's a great little set, lots of cool pieces in it.

Wow, looks like everyone has been busy this week. As for me, I finally got around to building my 8081 AAT. I had come in the mail three weeks ago, and I really didn't have any time to build it until Saturday. Overall, I really enjoyed the build and the final result.

I don't really know if I count, considering that I was gone for pretty much the whole time, but I did build a lot in the past week. My camera's not working for some reason, but I'll take pics soon. I can tell you that I built an UT-AT, an Acclamator, and a Munificent-class frigate. Sorry there aren't any pics yet.
I'm back! Kinda...

I attempted to put together my V-19 Torrent. I say attempted because when I was building, I found that one of those really long white axles that basically holds the entire wing assembly together was missing. Lego.com has happily sent me a replacement, but it hasn't arrived yet.

So, while I was waiting for that to arrive, I downloaded the building instructions for Darth Vader's Tie Fighter and scrounged all the parts (with a few exceptions ie the new clip) from my stockpile and built that. I didn't have some of the parts in the correct colour, so I used similar ones temporarily until I can order them from Bricklink. I think it looks pretty good even with the colour change. I will upload pictures to my brickshelf account soon.
