About this creation
Finally got away from a couple other projects that I was doing and was able to get around to photographing, editing, and posting a ship that’s just been laying around the house collecting dust, literally collecting dust, for a little better than a month. For this one, I decided to go after a ship that I’ve had sitting on my hard drive for a very long time. I don’t really make a habit of replicating, and this one isn’t a perfect replica itself, but it’s the closest to a replica I’ve done.

A couple new things on this one. This is the first ship I’ve built that’s predominately white. I like the look. It’s also the most elaborate brick built windscreen I’ve ever done. TLG doesn’t produce the proper windscreen for the shape I needed, so I took matters into my own hands. Not exactly what I was hoping for, but it didn’t turn out too badly, I suppose.

The photo editing is not quite up to par with my usual work, so I apologize for that. I’m also not going to go on for paragraphs giving a back story on this ship. That’s just laziness.

May I present, Juggernaut.



This MOC was blogged on: The Brothers Brick,
and: BrickNerd,
and: The Lego Car Blog.

That's a hat trick, y'all!


My dutiful, "This ship is flying so fast that the stars are blurred behind it," shot.






The underside.






Got a bit lazy on the photo editing.






More laziness.




Lazy, lazy, lazy...

These next shots are some looks at some of the details of the underside of this build.









Bonus pics!

This is the reference photo that I used for this MOC.


My Uncle is an Army man, and has been for most of my life. He asked me to design a tattoo for him, and this is what I sent to him. I found the silhouette on the internet and drew it out many times until I got the shape right. The flag I drew from memory. I took photos of both, transferred them to my computer, and edited them both together on the same file so I could make the lines sharp and the colors correct. Pretty proud of my Uncle, as well as how this work turned out.


This is the other thing I was doing while I was away from my LEGO collection. This is a paper craft of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. Turned out pretty well and challenged my craftiness greatly, but the payoff is not really worth the cost. I found this thing in my store on clearance and bought it for $2.00. Figured it would be a nice project for my daughter and me to work on together. That, my friends, was a mistake. There is no reason on this earth that an eight-year-old should be submitted to such agony. I was thinking, “Insert tab A into slot A…how hard can it be?” When I opened it, I found that there were almost twenty sheets of thin cardboard with pieces covering each one. The materials needed included: an exacto knife, glue, tweezers, and thread. The thread was used to guide four LED lights into small holes in the model. The instructions don’t even give you a single word of warning regarding how very frustrating that stage of the build is. I tackled it alone, and dumped better than three week’s worth of free time into its completion. There was a lot of rolling pieces up and holding the resulting cylinder together until the glue dried or else it would just separate. A lot of rubbing my fingers together to get all the Elmer’s off. A lot of wondering why I wouldn’t just stop. You might be looking at the picture of this and wondering why one of the flags is lying on the shelf next to the castle. It was knocked off a couple days after I placed the castle there. I haven’t been able to bring myself to glue it and hold it in place until it can stand on its own again.

So here’s some advice. If you see this thing in a store and you think, “Insert tab A into slot A…how hard can it be?” I want you to find something sturdy and sharp, and as you’re having that thought and focusing on the box that contains this evil model, stab yourself through the meatiest part of your foot. You’ll be tempted to go to the doctor, but fight the urge. The doctor will want to fix it. You don’t want that. What you’re looking for here is excruciating, lasting pain. That way, the next time you look at that box, you’ll remember the pain in your foot and forget all about the need to build this useless thing.


Thanks for having a look, my fellow FOLs. Let me know what you think.

Superb looking ship! Love how sleek every detail is done! 5/5, your not one of my favorite builders for nothing!! Brick on! Lucky for that castle, after reading the story of it... it would have ended up in the fireplace with me! lol!!

Woooow! A space-ship tank!! What a stunning and fierce design. I'm fan of the concept. Terrific!

Quoting matt rowntRee Completely awesome in every detail. Love the shape and the color blocking. The midsection is appropriately beefy and the flags are a nice touch. The space thing is nice too. :D I half expect to see an edit of the Juggernaut strafing Snoozin' Beauty's pad with glorious flames and wonton disregard for the clutch power of Elmer's glue. Might even expect the tattoo to be reworked for yourself with the castle instead of the rifle/helmet/pack combo. XD Excellent vessel with impressive fiah powah. Trick canopy BTW. And the grey of the castle makes up for the lack of bley in the ship. Thanks for that as my sensibilities were a bit shaken. XD Stellar!
Hahaha! Thanks, Matt. It will be a cold day in...you know...there, before I get a tattoo of that cursed thing on my body. An edit of the Juggernaut blowing the snot out of the castle, now there's an idea worth exploring. Thanks for the shout out on the canopy, it was definitely what took the longest on this work. Also, those struts turned out way better than I expected them too, and such a small detail, I'm stoked, yet unsurprised that you would be the one to notice that. Thanks, man.

Quoting Jacob Lyman I like the lazy editing, with that I realized this is real Lego and not some L-Draw thing. Very well done model. Also we'll done, excruciating, castle.
Excruciating. Yes...good word for it. Not the best reason to neglect my favorite hobby for nearly a month, but I guess it turned it alright. Thanks for the compliments on the ship, Jacob.

Quoting KW Vauban Great MOC. The shape of the Juggernaut is interesting and clever built. And I really like the wings on the wings.
Ah, yes. The wings on the wings. It's an idea I've pulled out before, but it was in the reference pic, so I used it as a fine excuse to bring it out again. Thanks, KW.

Quoting Tirrell Brown I'm going to say that this is my new favorite from you. I love the overall concept, but I have to give special credit on how the wings came out. Excellent work!
It's a toss-up between this one and Scallywag for me, but I'm pretty thrilled with how this turned out. Glad you like it. Thanks, Tirrell.

Quoting Philippe Moisan Nice touch of red.
Thanks, Philippe. Not sure if red was the intended color in the reference pic, but it looked right to me. Glad you like it.

Thanks, Kira! Glad you like it. Gotta support our troops, especially if he's one of the best Uncle's ever.

Quoting Elk Guard Great looking ship, just like the reference pic! Nice castle too, the things we do for our kids, hey!
Yep, better than three weeks on something that could fall apart at any moment. I'm definitely starting what I'm expecting will be a lengthy papercraft dark age;) Thanks for the compliment, good sir.

Thanks, Mihe! Definitely a challenge to achieve some manner of duplication.

Quoting Stephan Niehoff A ship as if from a computer game. Very very Elegant and simple built just fantastic. The wing character is really awesome. The dark gray deposits knock my socks off .... wow. For me, the engine is at the rear, the absolute highlight of this vessel. Very impressive Tim.But also your castle is soooo awesome.
Hahaha! Glad you like the castle, Stephan. Thanks for the compliments, there, man. I consider it the highlight of this post;) I'm glad you like the engines. I haven't done the cluster like that in a while and decided it was high time I went that direction again. Thanks again.

It's a brilliant ship, and the windscreen looks ace. Now, about your photo editing... no-one is lazier than me when it comes to such things and you've got a long way to go before your photos are down to my level! As for your Uncle, give him my regards; maybe he and my son will meet in a desert soon. On the same side, you understand... And I'll be sure to give paper castle models a wide berth although it does look nice.

So smooth! So sleek! So studless! So, so, I could go on... XD This is so alike to the original, it is hard to tell the two apart! The background is gorgeous, and you need some lazy pics to add some variety, you know, to bring the viewer back into reality for a moment, and realize that the model that they are looking at is LEGO, not a pre assembled model or a piece of sci-fi art. Than as they scroll through the photo's, they are taken in by the detail, and struggle for words. So some will just leave 5 yellow heads, or a fave. Spectacular work Tim! This is a flawless model.

Wow Tim, I'm doubly impressed! What a patience you must've had doing that castle :D And that ship is just phenomenal. The colors, the cockpit, every angle is covered and worked out thoroughly. One of my favourites for sure!

Yeah, that paper-craft stuff is whack, to be sure...that spaceship though! I echo Barto's feelings: at first glance (and perhaps even second) it looked very much like a kit-built model and not even LEGO at all. A superb job! Fantastic pictures as well...I don't understand why you call some of that editing lazy...it actually looks like the model was sitting on a table or some such covered in cloth...it must have been a lot of hard work to make it look so realistic!

I like the styling of this one. The red stripes bring it to life and the brick-built, opaque canopy works very well. The whole thing reminds me of some of the Warhammer models that I've seen. It has a feel of bulk but speed, I think thanks to the blurred background in one of the photos. I wonder how well it steers? Another classic ship from you, with your usual nice greebles too. Excellent!

Brilliant epic spacecraft! Most I like the welldone cockpits, the wing-wing-emblem, and the whole coloursheme, with intermitted greeble-sections. There are so many likely building-solutions to find out. And- I know that paper-castles.... when I was young i built one by myself...:'... Excellent Work, Tim!
