Picture 001 - Welcome to Project: Endor

In October 2004 I began working on virtual LEGO model of the Lambda-class shuttle (Tydirium) from 'Star Wars: Return of the Jedi' in minifig scale. By virtual I mean designed in MLCad software, because I didn't have all the necessary bricks. I took me six months to finish the CAD model, complete with internal mechanics. My Lambda, just like the "real" one, would fold its wings and have retractable ramp and landing gear. The picture of my model you see above was rendered by my colleague and LUGPol's fellow admin Shaggie.

But back then I never even dreamt about Project: Endor...
