Lego Building Instructions

Eolian lego fan artThis page contains lego building instructions that I've made for a few of my models. Each one has a part list at the back so that you can prepare all at once before you build.  In most cases I have provided a part list file in XML format which can be cut-and-paste into the Wanted List page within Bricklink for easy ordering.  (I am not affiliated with Bricklink, it is just a reputable lego reseller marketplace, and it is now officially owned by The Lego Group.)  The Bricklink color guide (to match numbers to color names) can be found here.  If you wish to use Bricklink to buy the parts, first make an account on Bricklink, then navigate to the wanted list upload page, click on "Upload BrickLink XML format," then cut-and-paste the entirety of one of my parts list pages.

Almost all of these instructions were made using Stud.io from Bricklink.  Stud.io is free to download.  A few of the older instructions (Chull, Keep Venture, Waygate) were made using Ldraw, MLCad, and Lpub.  You may download all of the instructions on this page freely and use them for personal, non-commercial purposes, but please do not re-post them online.

 

Chasmfiend (from Brandon Sanderson's works)

Update: there was one part missing from p88, step 382: a black 2x2 plate, part 3022. I've corrected the step and the parts list.

I recently updated the Poco design to fix an issue with the acclivity ring. In v1, the ring eventually started sagging, so v2 adds a single clear part to the underside to support it, and v3 is an improved design that does not require such support. If you built v1 or v2, the only new parts you need for v3 are two additional 4081b (modified 1x1 plate with thick ring, light bluish gray).
