Rogue Recon: A Star Wars Coaster

Postby chaos » Thu Apr 05, 2018 2:06 pm

Steelworks is gone now, and I'm building my most daunting project yet. It will be heavily themed (even for my standards) and highly technical.

The plan is to have a story line, multiple trains, and a fully functioning block brake system, as well as scenes where the train stops and the story develops in a more visual manner. I have begun work on the launch, which is the first of many different methods of propulsion.

The launch construction continues. It can get very frustrating at times, but at least it's progressing. Getting a lot better at working with the Lego EV3.

The trains are (mostly) done! And so is the launch!

I'm finally starting to get into the fun part . . . the theming! Also did a little track work as well.

Didn't have much time to build this week, but here's another update anyway. Got the final drop (mostly) complete.

Special Update this time . . . I got the little brother I'm mentoring to help me out with one of the main support towers. He was really good for never having played with K'nex before!

Looking good!!! I really enjoy the update videos. It's cool to see how it's progressing along. Keep up the good work!!

- On a side note... I hate how k'Nex stopped making the "good" sets, and went to the "nano" pieces/sets. :cry:
Bigger is not always better.

^Thanks! And I hate the new tiny sets as well.

I am now building a hub-less Ferris Wheel lift!

How much time do you have on your hands? This is way too detailed for a K'Nex model. I love it. :lol:

In regards to ^ and ^^, from a casual fan's standpoint, I love the new tiny sets. Not as detailed, sure, but easy to put together and the results are pretty satisfactory. On the bright side, you can still purchase a Son of Serpent model for a thousand bucks. :p
