• this is the best shot to see the EL Wire that runs throughout the ship, illuminating the inside and the windows

    I will take night shots later in the week

  • What piece is this big red slope? - porschecm2
  • What is the slope on the tops of these turrets? - porschecm2
  • They are scala phones www.peeron.com/inv/parts/x14
  • Just like when i posted the Sobani battleship www.flickr.com/photos/47881312@N04/6106422071/in/set-7215... I cannot seem to find the reference for this piece . I think it is a fabuland part. It attaches to big brown window frames which i cant find either. Iwill see if there is a reference number on them.
  • Thanks for the hint. With a little Bricklink-fu, I got it: www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=678 - porschecm2
  • nice find!

    As you can see this brick doesnt have any regular connection . IT just rests on the studs with some friction... not too fragile but not the best!
  • Modulex part ! Nice - Athanor-Paris

The biggest ship ever built by the Sobani: the 'Tesseract' is a giant space shipyard capable of building or repairing even battleships sized vessels. It features a giant deployable 'drydock' that adapts to the type of ship that needs repairs / or that is planned for building on site.


This is by far the biggest thing i ever built (105cm) , and also the most complex. It's not super clear in the pictures but this build integrates 3m of Electroluminescent Wire which lights up most of the ship's sides (mostly the factory and the hangar). The battery box is held within a compartment and can be accessed and removed easily. I'll write a little more about it later but EL Wire is a great thing to work with : it fits perfectly in a lego clip or minifig hand and doesnt heat up at all.

This project was built just like the most recent 2 for an exhibition at the biggest Toys R Us in Europe, in Paris (La défense) on the 3rd and 4th of november. Other builders are attending with fantastic creations : iomedes xtofcorthay and legodrome

Pics are somewhat mediocre at full resolution ... curse the wobbly tripod!

Picture has been replaced to remove the shadow the ship was casting on .... nothing!

    Every MOC you post I spend a long time looking at and trying to figure out the techniques and the piece use - it's like the favourite concept art I've never seen keeps coming to life in LEGO form. Bravo!

    This is one of the most spectacular MOCs I've seen on Flickr. Brilliant work Pierre!

    You set the bar so high and yet every time you reach it - no easy task! This is yet another beautiful and inspiring moc. I love the fact your creations are so sci-fi yet also appear so functional and grounded in reality.

    Dement aussi celui-ci ! Le truc qui tue, c'est l'utilisation de vieilles portes Duplo (ou Fabuland ???), si je ne me trompe pas. Comme ils disent "Every part is a Space part" lol
    Sinon au dela du MOC je crois qu'on peut pas trouver mieux au niveau présentation, c'est deu grand art !

    This is truly stunning. I actually contemplated what it would take to get to Paris for the weekend. I could drive the seven hours to Calgary and save a bit that way, then fly standby direct. Plus I'd be able to hit the LEGO store in Calgary on the way back. Justifying the expense would be the only problem...

  17. SHR0UD 30 months ago | reply

    Would be a big ask but would you consider making instructions like Jon does?

    "Big ask"? I think I have just found my understatement of the day!
