  1. Hello everybody! Its been a while since I posted something but today I would like to share with you guys my latest two builds. Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my animated favorite movies so this was a pleasure to build Nightmare Before Christmas Nightmare Before Christmas Sleigh Hope you like it!
  2. Awesome guys! This was a surprise! Miss building castle...
  3. Thank you so much guys for the comments! :) I will certainly try to continue to build MOCs on my spare time :)
  4. Hey everybody, this is my last build of the year and the last one for at least a few months as I've said in my flickr account a few days before I'll be moving to Billund on January. This build was actually started a few months ago but I never got the chance to finish it until now. And as I got a big chunk of my collection unsorted and my time is very limited right now, I didn't manage to get the results I wanted. A river was planned as well as a richer landscape and more leaves on the upper part. Anyway, hope you like it! :) Thoryn Arper Tree House Thoryn Arper Tree House Thoryn Arper Tree House
  5. Exactly! :) I couldn't responded better :)
  6. Thanks again guys, it's always nice to read your kind comments :) Well, the transblue 1x1 round plates (water), the 1x2 bley slopes (on the rockwork) and lots of white bricks 1x3 were from PAB cups on my visit to a London LEGO Store ladt year. Since then I've made some more Bricklink orders... well a bit more then some actually :) But keep in mind that this was a commissioned build (only the house, not the beach or rockwork) so I had to buy lots of parts specifically for it. I wanted to give it a sense of a house for rental, hence no minifigs. But I guess I could put one or two on the lounge or on one of the balcony's. I really don't know how many, but several thousands, yes :) Thank you sir. It was an honor to share a front page highlight with you ;)
  7. Thanks to everyone for the comments and remarks! Glad you like it! This was actually a commissioned build for an architecture company (only the house - the beach, cliff and palm trees I added later for the sake of a better presentation). They gave me a rough sketch of what they wanted and from there I made this model. But the name, specs, etc was all fictional. But like L@go said, Point Dume is a real place located in Malibu Thanks once again everybody!
  8.

  9. Hey, thanks for the comment. Well I don't have a clear idea of how many parts I used. But a rough estimate would be maybe 25000, I guess. I tend to use lots of small parts that add up a lot, like 1x2 pltes, 1x1 round plates, 1x2 tiles, etc. For instance, i used all my 1x2 tiles on medium azure (300), all my 1x1 round plates in LBG (200), all my lime parts (between plates, tiles, bricks etc I had over 2000 pieces) and all DBG slopes (over 1500). And this is just a small fraction. This time around I made 2 separate bricklink orders just for slopes and azure tiles and plates (around 65$ ). I have a pretty good collection now and got to stop using bricklink Thanks. Nope, no interior I'm afraid I almost always intend to do interiors on m y MOCs but then I just don't have the time/patient/parts to do it.
  10. A must have for sure! Thanks Ecc, for the wonderful review. Can't wait to have it!
  11. Thanks to all for the comments. I'm going to build more on these theme, for sure
  12. Thanks a lot to everyone! I'm really glad that you all liked it
  13. Thanks a lot everybody!! Thanks! I too think that my landscapes are probably the most catchy things on my builds. And it always a pleasure to make them for me.
  14. Many years ago, Earth passed thru a series of climatic and environment events that led to massive changes on the atmosphere and also on the earth surface composition. Lighter-than-air gases, such as helium or hidrogen became predominant and made some landmasses detached from the ground and start free floating on the skies. Most are huge, stunning and majestic, with waterfalls, rivers and entire towns. Others are small with just one or two houses and a few families. Inhabitants had to adapt and to evolve because huge chunks of the Earth surface were now drifting and floating. These islands are usually free-floating and may be directed by the whim of their inhabitants, whilst others may be permanently anchored. Basic resources like food and drinkable water are becoming scarce. Most people have to travel on rudimentary vehicles that float with the help of balloons so they can look for supplies and other necessities. Some even anchor other small floating islands to use them as crops fields and animal farms or just because they want to increase their property. Todaidh Beag is one of those islands. Holds Triroof Manor, home of Godfrey Morgan, his wife, Bella and his 2 sons, Cyrus and Malcumus. Cyrus and Malcumus often leave the island on their balloon boat to find food and supplies. Most of the times they endure bad weather, air pirates and other dangers. But they still have to do the trips to be able to survive and help their family. So guys, this is my latest build and I think this is a new favorite of mine. Even more then my Bluewater Castle as I think this one fits much more my building style. My latest castle builds were drifting to a more vibrant and colorful style that pleases me very much and this one is no exception. It’s not a steampunk build as it does not fit the bill entirely, but I like how it turned out. Anyway, I’m big fan of floating islands literature and stories and it was about time I made a MOC on that theme. I intend, if time and life allows, to build more on these theme. This thing is huge and it was the most challenging build so far. First I made the base with all the landscape and the house, etc. It was build on a very thick and strong base with lots of plates and 16x1 bricks. Then I made an oval technic frame in the shape of an inverted pyramid (I will post a pic or two of the frame later)with a core center of 2x4 bricks were the all landscape, house, etc stands on top. Perfectly balanced :) Inspiration from Life in the sky by Vladimir Kustuchek and the round tower part was from David Hensel latest build. It has lots of small details like the balloon boat, the harpoon to anchor smaller islands and other random stuff. If you want to see lots of details and small things please take a look at all the photos. I took a bunch :) Hope you like it. PS: yes, this is a Medium Azure roof.
