  1. Thanks guys. Those are both good solutions as well. I love having some different options in the back of my mind for possible MOCS.
  2. That's a great solution Gnac. Thanks for taking the time to share!
  3. Thank you. That's an interesting solution. I don't have many of those round tiles, but I think I could find enough to do some tests and see if I like the results. Thanks for your suggestion and for the photo!
  4. Hi All, Forgive me if this is an easy solution. I've been racking my brain trying to come up with how to make this work, but I'm still pretty inexperienced at designing my own models. In the example image the red bricks are the platform, and the green bricks are a column. These just represent an example, and not necessarily the dimensions of a finished model I'm planning. I was wondering what would be the best way to attach the column to the walkway. I've tried some different techniques, mainly using things like technic pin bricks within the core of the column. The problem I'm running into, is I can't get the outside of the column to line up flush with the underside of the platform. The closest I could get is having exposed studs on the column flush with the underside, however I was hoping there would be a way to get a flush meeting while capping off the studs with tiles.

    Thank you both for your input. Welfycat I think you've helped me settle on getting some of the Elves sets.

    I have a large collection of bricks, but it's mostly from sets like Castle, Star Wars, and Lord of the Rings. So lots of earth tones, not a lot of interesting bright pieces. Maybe it might be more worth while to get some of the friends and Elves sets instead of the Creative Buckets?

    I've recently been checking out the Lego Classic Creative Boxes. I'm wondering how good of a deal these boxes are, and if it's a good way to get pieces in interesting colors? If so, is there any specific box that I should get over the others?
  8. Hi All, Any idea what dark bley part is being used for the top of the head, and upper shoulders, on this mecha? Here's a link to the Flickr so you can get a better look:https://www.flickr.com/photos/garry_rocks/16623405268/in/photolist-rjXieE-5LNKu8-5LNLgg-5LNJJg
  9. Personally I think it's awesome. I haven't liked the proportions or details on any of TLG's AT-AT's or AT-ST's, but this one is just great. The build itself is very fun, and the completed model is quite stable. The only thing that might make the model a bit cooler would be more articulation points, but that could take away from the stability.
  10. Amazing amount of detail. It takes a long time to soak it all up. I especially love the technique you used to suggest tiny rolling sand dunes. Just wonderful!
  11. These are just brilliant. I especially love the Ghost. I didn't want to pick up the official Lego version since the angles and details didn't quite look right to me. If only they had released something more along these lines. Wonderful job!
  12. Thanks for the comments guys. I appreciate the feedback. I'm already working on a better redesign. I've been checking out the SoNE stuff and it sounds like fun. Hopefully I will have sometime to contribute in the near future.
  13. Hi all, This is my first real MOC, which I've been working on as I sort out my Lego collection into proper organized work station. It's still a work in progress, and I'm not completely satisfied with it. I still need to sort out some other pieces so I can create a proper display base for it, and tidy up some of the details. I was eager to take some photos of my progress though, so I decided to share it. Please let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions. http://www.flickr.co.../raptorbandito/
  14. Excellent work! Lovely details in here. I especially like how you did the floor. I will definitely be book marking this one for inspiration reference.
  15. Very nice small scene. I especially like your trees and bushes. Those are techniques I haven't seen myself. I like it a lot.
