  1. [quote name='Wodanis' timestamp='1471462163' post='2638133'] You are talking about this piece are you not? [url="http://brickset.com/parts/6094069"]http://brickset.com/parts/6094069[/url] On BnP it is listed as: Brick Color Description BR.YEL-GREEN Category Bricks, Special Element ID 6094069 Design ID 2423 Regular green is [url="http://brickset.com/parts/242328"]http://brickset.com/parts/242328[/url] Brick Color DK.GREEN Brick Color Description Category Bricks, Special Element ID 242328 Design ID 2423 [/quote] Like Aanchir already said you are talking about a different color: Lime green [quote name='Peppermint_M' timestamp='1471506947' post='2638596'] I might be mixed up, but I thought they may have come in some Friends sets? Possibly the small ones that were stuck to the magazines. Then again, I am yet to finish the first coffee of the day and could be talking nonsense. [/quote] Same here. Several [url="http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=2423&colorID=34&in=A"]Friends sets[/url] contained Lime Green 4x3 Leaves. The specific part could be only from the Holiday Train set and only from a very special version. All people I know who bought that set got green leaves instead of bright green ones.
  2. Hello, The search results here on EB weren't that satisfying so I just ask you: Do [b]bright green[/b] 4 x 3 Plant Leaves (2423) really exist? [url="http://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=2423#T=C"][img]http://www.bricklink.com/P/36/2423.GIF[/img][/url] Of course they are listed on [url="http://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=2423&idColor=36#T=C&C=36"]Bricklink[/url], but only as an alternate part of the [url="http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemInv.asp?S=10173-1"]Holiday Train[/url]. And on Brickset they are not listed at all. [url="http://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?S=10173-1#T=S&O={%22rpp%22:%22100%22}"][img]http://img.bricklink.com/S/10173-1.gif[/img][/url] Currently there are four BL-sellers who have them available in their stores, but at least the German seller had to confess that his leaves are in fact green. I have never seen someone using this piece. So does it really exist or is it listed wrong on Bricklink? Hope there is someone who can clear this up. Best Jonas
  3. I know, I'm late. Hopefully not too late. While looking through some photos I discovered some snapshots I made while destructing the boat. Maybe it's still of interest for someone: [img]http://www.1000steine.de/de/gemeinschaft/forum/img/8238-1464026885.jpg[/img] [i]The structure under the wave. (Pretty basic.)[/i] [img]http://www.1000steine.de/de/gemeinschaft/forum/img/8238-1464026959.jpg[/img] [i]Picture from below. Here you see how the planks bend.[/i] [img]http://www.1000steine.de/de/gemeinschaft/forum/img/8238-1464027015.jpg[/img] [i]Fiction points for the planks and the metal bar at the rear. (The holes in the studs of the technic bricks allowed working with 1/2 brick offset.) [/i]
  4. Hey everyone, I'm really glad you like it. Thank you for your comments and your pleasant words!
  5. Hello, Almost 30 years ago the first Predator movie came in the cinemas. Since then he appeared in three own films and even in two crossovers. A character contest on [i]Imperium der Steine[/i] was the perfect chance to try my hands on this guy: [url="https://flic.kr/p/Hj4jMU"][img]https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7577/27114972966_867bce0a92_c.jpg[/img][/url] Tell me what you think! Best Jonas
  6. Thanks a lot for your kind words, I'm glad you like it. To be serious, I have no clue of ships. I just looked up some pictures. So the sailor is no rebuild of an existing ship, but more a ship of my imagination. Due to that, there are several points you found that doesn't fit perfect. [quote name='Cousarmy0001' timestamp='1456162608' post='2480258'] What pieces did you use to make the bottom level of the hull? [/quote] I used [url="http://alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?id=91346#T=C"]2x4 curved slopes[/url]. [quote name='kurigan' timestamp='1456178521' post='2480558'] Ha-ha, awesome! Three major points here, the ship, the wave and the monster: Love how the monster’s tentacles wrap around the hull. Very articulate and convincing. Technic connectors for suckers is clever too. The wave is just a whole creation on its own. The clear-trans really conveys “foamy” and “cold”. The whole thing, shape and color, is fantastic (am I mistaken or their gray under the clear?) I can’t imagine pulling off something like that myself. The ship: I agree, the application of several techniques and varying bricks worked out just excellent. I can get pretty excitable over technique and this has me intrigued. Would you be so kind as to show us some WIP shots or perhaps just an image of her underside? She really does look like a Tea Clipper aside from a lack of masts. The narrow drawn out bow, the low freeboard and flat sheer, suggest a late 19[sup]th[/sup] or early 20[sup]th[/sup] century vessel. Only that raised stern gallery seems, a bit out of place perhaps. I do like the SNOT windows there though. It’s going to take several more times looking her over to grasp all the little details. Had to squint to figure it out but I like that anchor made with mini-fig hands. All in all, I love what you have here. You’ve definitely made my personal list of interesting builders. I’d love to see more of this technique and hope you intend to peruse developing if even further. Thanks for sharing! P.S. come to think on it, that size and shape hull would make a great schooner. [/quote] Thanks for you comment. You are right, I used dark bluish grey to fill the wave. In the upper part I also used white bricks to make the wave a bit brighter. I didn't took the ship apart, so you have to wait for your WIP pictures, but I will show them here for sure! [quote name='Tokru' timestamp='1456328860' post='2482195'] Fantastic color scheme. The lack of bright colors makes it look very realistic. The flag with the bull does look a bit out of place though. [/quote] Unfortunately I didn't found a better flag in my collection.
  7. Ahoi! [url="https://flic.kr/p/Eo3Nut"][img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1515/25191066715_f415c3de0b_c.jpg[/img][/url] Inspired by some old paintings, I have built a sailing ship that is attacked by a sea creature. Here are more shots of the ship: [url="https://flic.kr/p/EcA3T9"][img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1496/25072682142_bd5e593990_c.jpg[/img][/url] [url="https://flic.kr/p/DMoeQV"][img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1507/24798781769_ed65937cc1_c.jpg[/img][/url] I hope you like it!

  8. Hello folks, I present you my latest build, a flying steampunk kiosk. It's a collaboration because I got visited by the talented [url="https://www.flickr.com/photos/60604487@N03/"]Brick Vader[/url] on the last weekend. Unfortunately he is not that much in lego anymore, but my collection and some brainstorming about steampunk inspired us to build something together. [url="https://flic.kr/p/D8U7zG"][img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1694/24374583850_f799303a81_c.jpg[/img][/url] [url="https://flic.kr/p/D2rMwD"][img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1623/24301547869_b3d247d92d_c.jpg[/img][/url] We had limited time, but I'm happy how it turned out. I hope you like it as well. Best Jonas and Jonas
  9. Wow. Your commendation overflows me. I'm glad you like it that much. :) Thanks a lot! [quote name='Dutchiedoughnut' timestamp='1452285850' post='2433377'] Amazing! I love it :). Is it in Minifig scale? I'd love to see a figure riding the swings! [/quote] Yes, it's minifig scale. (Only the ladder is probably a bit too big.) [quote name='Kristel' timestamp='1452373470' post='2434209'] Awesome! The tree is amazing, but it's all the small details that make this extra special. Love the planter boxes under the windows, the woodpecker, the telescope and stool, the bird's nest and the use of the printed slopes for the curtains! [/quote] Thanks for the time you spent in looking at the pictures to catch all the details. That makes the work of building and shooting worth it!
  10. Hello, With so many great winter creations in the last weeks, it's feels a bit frosty on EuroBricks. So I will try to bring you a bit spring feeling with my newest creation: My Tree House [url="https://flic.kr/p/CKRNb5"][img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1608/24125168792_a961ec29f5_z.jpg[/img][/url] Tree houses always had something magical for me. The symbiosis of the home and the nature has something very idyllic and charming. I wanted to reflect this peaceful atmosphere and the feeling of security in tree houses in my build. Also I had the chance to try my hands on a bigger tree and the challenge to build it sturdy enough so it holds the home. [url="https://flic.kr/p/BXTFd1"][img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1481/23604976764_f5432b5806_z.jpg[/img][/url] I'm glad Oscar posted his amazing [url="https://www.flickr.com/photos/o0ger/23849547995/in/dateposted/"]roof technique[/url] before I build my tree house. It's so great, I had to copy that. Thanks for your inspiration, Oscar! [url="https://flic.kr/p/CmRHhc"][img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1609/23864872919_c206f88cc8_z.jpg[/img][/url] To give the tree a sturdy base I build its roots and a bit of the surrounding landscape. [url="https://flic.kr/p/CTJiie"][img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1502/24214237835_d7b320395b_z.jpg[/img][/url] I hope you like it! Jonas
  11. Hello, [i]It's that time of the year again when the snowflakes fall and everyone is looking forward to christmas.[/i] Maybe somewhere else, but in Germany we had 16,5°C / 61,7°F today. Feels like summer. To compensate for the Christmas stress and the inappropriate weather I built this "dream winter scene".

  13. Big Hero 6 is probably the most underrated SuperHero-Movie. I really liked it, so I wanted to build something inspired by all the detailed scenes. With a SuperHero-Hideout Contest on Imperium der Steine I got the perfect opportunity to build Hiro Hamada's workshop. [url="https://flic.kr/p/zX7iBL"][img]https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5653/22283410558_f034dca059_c.jpg[/img][/url] This is the screenshot my version is based on: [img]http://www.1000steine.de/de/gemeinschaft/forum/img/8238-1445803907.png[/img] More pictures from different angles can be found [url="http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/420956"]here[/url] or click on the picture: [url="http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/420956"][img]http://images.mocpages.com/user_images/91695/14458040915_DISPLAY.jpg[/img][/url] Best Jonas *fist bump*
