Docking bay 327

Hi

@Rob I messaged about a year ago regarding a lighting kit for the docking bay, I'm now in the process of buying a docking bay from an AFOL that needs space I believe it is the same design as previous models on rebrickable and was wondering if you ever did come up with a complete kit.

 

Best Wishes

  • Hey Chappy, thanks for checking in.  Yes, we have been working on adding some pretty amazing features to our kit for the docking bay.    I need to finish building my own bay (hope to have it done yet this month) then I'll post a video with more product info.  Sound, remote control, lights, very cool!

  • @Rob, Cheers  for the update so my winter project for this year is the docking bay, I was looking at the ISD Aggressor MOC but managed to secure the docking bay.

    If you can send me details when you have more concrete info I will be buying a kit for the docking bay.

    While I have your attention do you have any kits/designs for the death star 10188

    Best Wishes

  • gary chapman Will do, just finished building our docking bay this weekend so now we can work on testing the new kit functions.

     

    RE: the Death Star, we have been working on some sound/light ideas especially for the main cannon.  Nothing final yet however, sorry!

  • Hi Rob,

     

    Thanks for the update, I have just received all the bricks I need for the docking bay so will start building over the Christmas period. First question how have you hid the wires ?? Do I need to get a second set of base plates to create a false floor to run wires??

  • gary chapman We have two options for the wires.  First is that you make holes in the main baseplate and pass the wires down through to boards underneath-- for that you need to elevate the entire build and create a supporting understructure.  The other option is to run the wires along the docking bay floor, beneath the black tiles, and pass them all to the rear side of the main wall.  We're taking the second option with our setup, but you can do either.  The attached diagram may help show how the wires run.
