Review of Lepin 05083 Redemption Nebulon-B Escort Frigate


There is no shortage of MOC designer that Lepin could steal the ideas from. Lepin 05083 Nebulon-B Escort Frigate is a direct rip-off of LDiEgo submission to Lego Ideas. The project failed to achieve 10,000 supporters, but LDiEgo is kind to share the LDD file so the fans could build it themselves. That create opportunity for Lepin to steal the work and release the set as commercial piece.

Lepin 05083 came with 1736 pieces of parts, 6 minifigures and a medical droid. The parts are sorted in 7 batches of Numbered bags which corresponded to the instruction manual. Also there is a bag for minifigures and another bag for replacement parts.

To be frank this is not recommended for inexperience builder. The overall structure is very fragile and it would be best to Kragle it! Though some builders would balk at idea of super gluing the work but it is necessary to make the Nebulon-B Escort Frigate stayed in one piece. You may order Lepin 05083 from Aliexpress.

  1. Hi,

    thanks for sharing your review of the Nebulon Frigate. I am just curious how you managed the step 85? Somehow I am stuck at this point because of the upper studs colliding with the top part while trying to get the pins stuck in.
