  1. This really is old school, a nice way to remember the 90's and appreciate the parts selection of 2010's. Looks like you had a good time.
  2. You wouldn't be the only one. I remember my parents brought us once a box of red bricks from a trip to Germany in early 90's. I wonder what kind of parts will be included in these boxes. If the colour pallete is extended, I'm sure some of the colours would fly off the shelves.
  3. I've been too busy to build much in the last couple of months, so my latest build is actually pretty small. Due to space restrictions, I limited myself to build something modular on multiple baseplates, so I could built on one or two baseplates at the same time, and keep the rest in storage. Another problem was my semi-sorted brick collection, which affected building time a lot. The biggest challenge was to find all the small parts needed. And despite the small size, there is a lot of parts used in the display. I started experimenting with some houses first and then built the rest. Then I continued with the outskirts, the river, the train tracks and a lonely farm on the other side of the river. At this point, I was running low on most of the parts needed to add more details, so I round it up. Some of the details are not in the perfect scale with others, but I think they're still recognizable. This is how the display looks like from a distance. The idea is to extend this display further. While this part was largely unplanned, I need to plan more for the extensions, and most importantly order some of the parts I almost run out. If you're interested, you can find high-res pictures on my Flickr.

  5. The use of boats in combination with the round windows is fantastic. Definitely not something that comes to mind easily. While I'm not a fan of the arched overhangs above the doors on the back of the house, this MOC stands out mostly for the great colour scheme and interesting building styles. Very inspirational to try something new and extraordinary.
  6. These are really incredible MOCs! I find it challenging to replicate a real life building in minifig or microscale, yet you did just that. Some of the architectural details are really interesting, and there seems to be a few interesting building connections. I was intrigued by the angled half round structures on the basilica. It's hard to say which is my favourite, but the basilica and the train model are close to the top. It's not easy to build in microscale with so many details. I was also impressed by some parts. You used white windows with rounded top, which I didn't know existed in white, as well as horses in sand green.
  7. This is beautiful. I am surprised how the combination of white and medium blue with a hint of dark blue looks like. For sure, I wouldn't expect the blue to have such a nice effect. Moreover, there are many interesting details on the facade. The patterns created on the facade are really interesting, and not too similar to the Haunted house. It's also great to use the hinged wall to show the interior details.
  8. This is my contribution to the EB event 2016 sig fig vignette competion. Since my sig fig is in front of the PaB wall filling cups, the next (logical) step is to sort and store the bricks appropriately. The interior is inspired by my own LEGO corner in my bedroom. Luckily, my sig fig has more room to store her bricks.
  9. This was one of my favourites at the event. I love the floor design. All in all, the wall panelling, the large floor-to-ceiling mirror and the floor design are done really well. For sure I got some ideas to try out.
  10. That's interesting. MstrofPppts and I checked them in the morning, but saw no discounts. But then again, we were also confused with the numbers on the clock. At 5.20 am it's not easy to have a clear head.
  11. I think all the happy faces say it all - we had a great time. Thanks to Tom and Stefan and everyone else who contributed to this event. I had a great time seeing some of you again, and some of you for the first time. It's nice to see the faces behind the nicknames. Although tired from the extra short night (3 hours) and a too early flight home, I got a couple hours of sleep, and luckily I get two extra days off to enjoy the new bricks. See you again next year (if not sooner).
  12. I made mine today while prepàring lunch. Had to be careful not to make too much noise while my toddler was asleep. The vignette looks fine, just the pasta was overcooked.:-( I'm sitting at the airport on my way to Frankfurt, still have 6 hours of travel ahead of me. I made mine today while prepàring lunch.

  13. I have an idea what to build for weeks now, but haven't yet started on it. As it seems, the Friday off work was well spent (sleeping in after early morning workout), and now it's almost time to pick up the baby and entertain him for the rest of the afternoon - which means no building, just messing up the bricks.
  14. Thanks for the great countodwn, Holodoc. I wasn't able to follow it in real-time, but I enjoyed it anyway. I can't wait to start the trip tomorrow.
  15. The part usage is fantastic. You made two completely different MOCs with one rather unusual and unsightly part. The planet looks perfect as a domed roof. The architecture of the building is nice. I like how you did the palm trees, with dry and newly grown leaves in different colours. On the other hand, the turtle is incredible. If the domed roof is something that can be expected, you completly surprised me with the turtle's shell. It could easily be sold as a Creator set. Well done.
