X-29 CGI LEGO Model

I’ve completed a LEGO-CAD build of the X-29 Fighter I made a couple months back. Here’s a couple of shots of it, one from inside MLCad and the other from inside LDView. There’s no step-by-step instructions (WAY too many pieces!) but I’ve constructed the model in step-by-step sequence so if you do wanna check it out or build a version of your own you can pretty easily.
You can download the .MPD here and from the LEGO Instructions pages link on the right.

    Yo Eric, that’s just a screen grab from LDView, a cool little free app that just displays LEGO models in realtime 3D. It’s got some nice lighting and wireframe modes too…

    Having worked at LEGO and having done models like that (but all the elements modeled ourselves too…) I have to say that this looks great. In general it’s really nice to see LEGO finally going digital with their core business since a couple of years.

    I see that this is over 11 years old, but would love to build this model. What do you recommend for how to proceed?

  7. Naughty Says:

    Hey Douglas, if you can find an application that opens .MPD files (MLCAD or LDRAW – https://www.ldraw.org/) then you can download the MPD for this model (at the top of this post) and dismantle it digitally. That’s about all I can suggest as it only exists as in that format! Good luck.
