I've been contemplating this question for quite a while. In the great tradition of this site I felt this needed practical verification. I decided to make a ruler based on scaling up set 5005107, LEGO Buildable Ruler to measure the Saturn V myself.

There's a part on the front of the model named Wedge 10 x 3 Right with White Stripes, Yellow Triangle and Gray Lines Pattern (Stickers) - Set 8093
This piece was available in a single set - 8093-1 Plo Koon's Jedi Starfighter:
The model in question is not the same as the set which means it is someone's unique creation (MOC).
I personally would steer clear of a "cookie jar" setup. The very suggestion of it's inherent qualities suggests something that wasn't meant to transport, but rather sit on a solid counter. The rubber bands aspect seems potentially problematic as well. Finding one that perfectly fits could prove difficult, and their elasticity would likely try to pinch in-...
Welcome to BricksSE! No question is silly (Maybe duplicitous), but never silly.
Go to Bricklink.com
Create an Account.
Go to "Want" drop down menu.
Click "Wanted List".
Look for the blue box that says "+ Created Wanted List".
Important: Create and give the new list a meaningful name other than
"default" or all future uploads will be merged into one list ...
It's MODification, "My Own Design" is silly.
Also used quite extensively outside of the LEGO community, e.g. in gaming a MOD is altered game code you execute, either to cheat or too change graphics for fun.
So an existing set where you altered things to is a MOD.
A MOC is created from scratch.
I have several places to offer for you to share your MOC.
Eurobricks - here we have a forum, split into several subforums based on the primary topic. Don't be afraid of "Euro" in its name - there are members from all over the world.
Flickr - photo hosting website, however there is still a strong LEGO community. You'd upload an image and add it to related ...
Other answers seem to be focused on stage dimensions, rather than engines as asked in the question, so I'll address that.
Scaling is a pretty easy math. Stud is 8 mm and brick height is 9.6 mm. Given that the entire 100 cm (1000 mm) Saturn V rocket is 125 studs or 104 bricks and half plate high (104.166667).
The real Saturn V is 363.0 ft (110.6 m) tall. ...
The largest truely round base plates in the LEGO system fit in a 8x8 square. You can build them from two LegoPlate, Round Half 4 x 8 or from four quarters.
For a bigger (and thicker!) base plate there is a Duplo version of the above mentioned base plate, fitting into a 16x16 studs LEGO system square: LegoDuplo, Plate Round Corner 4 x 8 Double
EDIT: For a ...
I found BrickLink Studio quite good, but only worked with LEGO Digital Designer (LDD) before. Has also the ability to create instructions as PDF, though the process of creating all the steps is manual. Missing parts can be added by exporting them from LDD or placing additional LDraw models in a specific program folder. Comes also with an additional program (...
I think the key here is if you are trying to profit from it. If you are doing this as a hobby, aka for fun, you have nothing to worry about. If you are trying to sell the model and/or instructions, then you risk a friendly "Cease and Desist" letter from the Lego Group.
Here is a paragraph from their "Fair Play Brochure":
"For this reason, certain ...
In case you have all your sets as well as additional/spare bricks added to Rebrickable you can upload your digital model file and identify just the bricks you are missing. Custom list can be created in the following place:
Main page > My LEGO > My Custom lists
Once you upload the file you can use "Build this List" feature. And then "Buy parts". This would ...
For the time being, it would be smart practice to mark any videos related to LEGO as "for kids," even if that is not your target audience. At the current moment, we know very little about what quantifies as "for kids," but "toys that appeal to children" most definitely includes LEGO. I suspect that we will learn more in the coming months as literally ...
I believe I may have found a workable solution and the "best" solution based on the criteria:
I still wasn't able to find the rubber Technic connector part I wanted, so I kept looking at other connectors and how they fit together, taking special care to note how much space they would take up.
I looked more closely into the "Pop-Up Book Clasp" option (in ...
I see this sort of thing done regularly and never heard of anyone being shut down. Even really famous builders like JKBrickworks publish modifications for official sets and he would definitely be on Lego's radar having had two sets created through the Ideas program.
I know this is an older question but, for anyone else who might be looking for a good way to plan/design/refine a MOC idea, I wanted to throw in my 2¢. For the past week or so I've been working on refining my own MOC idea using Mecabricks. It's taken me a little while to get familiarized with the toolset available and there are probably some features I haven'...
