  1. Hi all. This is my first time posting in the town forum. I just wanted to share a MOC I built for our local Lego show "BrickExpo" in late July 2016, which I only recently had the chance to photograph properly when it was part of a recent LUG collaborative display at the Bricks at Woden School show, and then again when I set it up at home a week or so back. I wanted to build a formal park that was in scale with the Modular buildings, with the aim of having a larger display piece that could be used in the LUG's collaborative layouts. I had already prototyped corner and side modules when LEGO announced the Fun in the Park set, and that set inspired me to proceed with it. So over the course of several months in early 2016 I built all the rest of the park modules. I realised later on in the build that I needed to provide wheelchair access for the new fig, so I turned a side entrance into a ramp and made it the focus of an "opening" scene for the new access ramp. I bought the Fun in the Park set on day one of release and had an entertaining time posing figures (I did use all of them from the set, but one is out of sight on the far side), and thought up a few more minifig scenes as well. The Park also gave me the chance to try some different techniques, especially with the trees, which I made from techniques I saw online and with some variations of my own. Jokingly I refer to it as "UCS Fun in the Park". In the following two overview shots taken at the show, one LUG member built the brick-built roads, and another built the multi-coloured row of town houses in the back. Various members contributed sets etc. Overview 1 Modular City Park Overview 1 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr Overview 2 Modular City Park Overview 2 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr The Opening of the access ramp Modular City Park 3 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr Close up of the Statue end of the Park - a tribute to our founders Modular City Park 4 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr I guess I am a romantic at heart...

  2. Hi fellow EB members Here is a MOC I've just recently completed called 'Haymarket'. It's taken several months to complete and was originally just going to be the building on the far right, but as I had too many ideas I carried on with building another and it made sense to put them into a bigger feature. I've taken elements of many styles of European architecture rather than focus on one style relating to a particular country. Anyway on with the pics, only 3; If you wish to view them on flickr the link is here https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/ Any comments or feedback welcomed. Cheers!
  3. Hi guys, I currently have a small city/train layout. It is currently getting to small for my trains and modulars. (if you are interested you can find it here: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=554588). This made me think over a redesign of the layout where I have more space for the trains and the modulars, and where I have more "track-space" to move the trains on the layout (with the current design I can move 4 trains independently on the layout). I have now to describe what you can see in the image above: First you see the whole visible track of the layout. You can also see that it consist of three levels: gray baseplates = level 0 green baseplates = level 1 (20cm above level 0) tan baseplates = level 2 (only streets and houses, 20cm above level 1) All blue baseplates are placeholders for modular houses. You can also see, that this layout only works with modified points. The tracks on the red baseplates are the ramp where the train can go from level 0 to level 1. In the picture above you can also find the dimensions of the layout. In the pictures below, you can find the track layout of each single level (for reference the track ramp is shown in all thee pictures): Level 0: Level 1: Level 2: Now my Questions are: What do you think in general of my layout? What would you change/ what didn't you like? Do you think the given ramp is doable with PF-Trains (height difference = 20cm) BR, Guenther
  4. These are various alternate models I have made from the LEGO City 60150 Pizza Van set 1st- Sportscar & snack bar 2nd- airplane & air gates 3rd- Cargo truck 4th- JUNGLE off road car Thanks for watching!
  5. Batman: "Not that I don't want to get involved, but its really more of a licensing thing..."
  6. This past week, the local LUG, Cactus Brick, put on a display at the Phoenix Comicon. The display contained a new pirate section, a large town with an enhanced railway system, and a large Star Wars collection. Here is a video highlighting the various builds.
  7. My second build for ABS Round 2.1 The seed part is the red bucket, which I used 19 times (once in another color) in this build, see if you can find them all! I have wanted to try some builds in the city theme for a while, and a fire truck offered some nice possibilities to use the seed part. Then I decided to add the actual fire station, and a smaller fire truck after coming up with some other ideas for the part. The build is complete on all sides, and even has a bit of interior. The trucks feature various compartments for fire fighting supplies. See more pictures on my website. Thanks for looking, comments and suggestions welcome
  8. This is a fictional space-themed LEGO shopping mall complex named "The Spaceship" due to the shape of main building resembling a spaceship. If that naming idea had come sooner I would probably have designed something that actually looked more like a spaceship, but the idea only came to me more than halfway through the project when I saw what shape the building was taking so I just used the idea to name and style numerous parts of the model. The model uses approx. 175000 parts and 258 custom sticker designs and measures 3810mm x 3493mm x 519mm (13.3m² footprint). It features 30 shops, 218 car parking spaces, 500 minifigs, bank, post office, library, cinema, amusements, restaurant, foodcourt, admin/security office, service access, maintenance areas, escalators, functional elevators, toilets, ice rink, gymnasium, boating pond, custom brick-built road layout, and real LEGO lighting in most of the main building and ice rink. The design attempts to be as functional as possible by providing convenient car access, separate rear public transport access, and separate rear service vehicle access to all shops on the first two levels, as well as multiple entrances and fire exits. It also attempts to be wheelchair/buggy friendly as much as possible using a mixture of stairs, escalators, ramps and a glass elevator. The main glass roof can be removed in two halves, as can the roofs of the gym, the wing shops, and the rear section, the latter of which reveals the battery packs for the LEGO lighting. There's also manual cable winders on both the customer and service elevators. I managed to get the water tank in too but had to forego the boiler room - despite the size of the build I found myself running out of space. The massive size of the model caused numerous problems, especially due to buggy software and PC limitations, so I had to reduce the intended length of the mall and forego a few other features too, but it's still by far the biggest model I've built. It probably should have taken around 6 to 9 months to complete, but due to personal and technical issues it ended up taking more than 2 years. This virtual LDraw model was built using MLCad software and rendered with LDView (sadly it's too big to render with POV-Ray), with additional construction, graphic and animation support via the use of PHP, LDraw Sticker Generator, LDraw txt2dat, LDraw LSynth, ImageMagick, Paint Shop Pro, GIF Movie Gear, IrfanView, PNGOUT, AviSynth, VirtualDub, and ffmpeg. Even had to use Excel to write macros to compute the precise angles needed for the curved window walls on the wings, which were too difficult to compute on paper. And no, I don't intend building it for real! Links: Flickr (lots more images) YouTube (looks better at 720 resolution) The video contains still images and many flyby sequences which give a better impression of the model by restoring some of the 3D visual cues lost due to the non-raytraced renders containing no shadows. Excuse the length of the video and number of images. It's a REALLY BIG model, and 25 images just wasn't going to do it... This is my first post here, and may well be my last! - during the uploads of the more than 200 images the PC terminally died and the remainder of the uploads and this post had to be done from a Raspberry Pi.
  9. Armored Mercenary Van A while ago i was surfing through the Internet and was kinda curios what other Brick / Clone Brands have to offer. My Eyes fell on an interesting looking SWAT Van from the Clone Brand Enlighten. I really liked the overall Design of the Vehicle and so i started searching for better Pictures to pull off a daring Move: Cloning a Clone Brand Set :D Of course without actual Instructions i only could guess what`s underneath but i think i did a pretty neat Job.I added some Details here and there like Clips in the rear Compartment that hold two Guns and a working Driveshaft / Rear Axle with Technic Pieces. Towards the End of the build i noticed that i don`t have 3 black Roof Plates so i used one with a cool looking Sticker. So now it`s a Lego Mercenary Truck completely made from danish Bricks that are compatible to most Clone Brands :D 20170515_130533 20170515_130601 20170515_130615 20170515_130634 20170515_130656 20170515_130714 20170515_130825 20170515_130837 20170515_131048 20170515_130853 So,how do you like my Version?
  10. Lego City Future - Hoverbike Chase Teenagers tuning their Scooters to be faster and louder is still a Thing,even in the Future.And like in the old Days,you can still get in Trouble for that. Lucille is an ambitious Mechanic and spends her Freetime working on her little Hoverscooter and racing it in every possible Location.No matter if the bustling Downtown,the dry Concrete Canals in the industrial Zone or the Scrap Fields outside Lego City. Of course she prefers the Scrap Fields since she grew up there in a small Street and she`s working in Beekerz Garage. But it looks like she has met her Master today when one of the Police Interceptor Bike Units noticed her. These are no ordinary Bike Cops.They are well trained and perfectly equipped for the rougher Terrain.... Let`s just hope Lucille only gets a Ticket for speeding. 20170513_221414 20170513_221421 20170513_221432 20170513_221442 20170513_221501 20170513_221523 20170513_221541 20170513_221554 20170513_221619 20170513_221643 20170513_221655 Hope you like my tiny MOC. Comments are welcome.
  11. Dunno if the mods wanna merge the other thread with this but Sports is coming next summer. Looks like we were right!
  12. Hi all, long time lurker here but I keep plugging away with my own creations while being inspired by all of yours. This is the first one I've felt comfortable unleashing on the forum. There are aspects of it I'd like to improve, but it's my first big MOC so I committed to finishing it first, and refining it later. Any suggestions regarding the circular stacked roof on the transept portico would be welcome. I deliberated over a brick-built dome versus a hinged, petal affair and went for the latter because I felt it better suited the other techniques on display. Let me know what you think! Oh and because it all got a bit serious. Here's the Cathedral with the Occupy London protest camp for a little colour. Please forgive the banners, I cheated them in photoshop! As per Rufus's suggestion: here's an aerial reference photo for comparison: And this is the book that helped enormously in deciphering the overall structure:
  13. Hello, I decided to praise my work. This is my first post, first photo sharing on such a large scale. I know that my building is not perfect, but I would like to hear your comments. I hope they will be useful in the future and help me lift my skills. Probably the shopping center looks better in reality. I have some problems with proper lighting. What's more, the center is relatively large, but the interior is quite cramped. I had some trouble shooting some of the shops. It's very hard to show all the features and details.

  14. Hi, All! Here are some alternate models I've made with pieces of lego city 60121 Vulcano explorer set. At first I thought that it's going to be really hard to make any alternate from this city set but after some playing with bricks I came up with several designs. 1. Off road racer 2. TT truck 3. SUV Thanks for watching!
  15. In the interest of trying to compile one location, (and also a place for people to ask for new ideas) I figured this post could serve as the one stop shop for people looking to purchase instructions for non-official Lego Modular instructions. [For the record, this isn't a For Sale topic, but a place for people to most places for instructions to be purchased.] So with that being said, what are the places for people to purchase Modular Instructions? ______________________________________ www.brickcitydepot.com www.brickbuilderspro.com
  16. I haven't posted topics on Eurobricks for a long time (Sorry!) I have make a new MOC, T6W-MC: The 6 Wheeled Muscle Car... T6W-MC by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr T6W-MC by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr It's my first Speed Champions MOC, hope you like it! More Information in My Website... Note: The wheels can't actually turn in Real Life. It's just to make it more realistic.
  17. https://mobile.twitter.com/LEGO_Group/status/801078089417687040?p=v LEGO City Undercover is re-releasing on Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. Also, notice Chase's new uniform in the picture. Logo's slightly different too. Guess there's some slight differences. Great for people who don't own a Wii U! Guess this explains Chase's appearance in LEGO Dimensions and a 2017 City set.
  18. I finally took the plunge and bought my first PF train set. And I'm not ashamed to say I'm now addicted to making train things in LDD and Stud.io. Here's my first completed train car. A passenger car to match the colors of the Cargo Train set engine. As always (well most of the time), the build guide is available at charlesp.org
  19. Hi, I would like to show you my wip moc of a ferris wheel for my winter village. I got inspiration from this one, expecially for the gondolas, but i spiced it up a little bit (6 instead of 4, top cover, etc...). Of course i still have to develop everything around it, this is just the wheel for now (and still need to add some more decorations). As I'm new to this forum and I'm back on track after a long dark age I would like to know your impressions and suggestions to get it better before ordering the pieces i miss.For example i have some difficulties to attach more firmly the white plates to the black technic rotor plate. Any ideas? The gondolas are connected via turntables, i guess that there is a little bit too friction on that but it's the easiest way i found.

  20. Hello Eurobricks community. I've been reading Eurobricks for quite few years and have been collecting LEGO for a while. (mostly starwars) Anyhow, I have a question to the community: I need some advices on how to plan and start making a... lets start from small urban town. So the current resources I have now are: I have a lot of townsfolk, 2 houses, and some handful of bulk parts for sure. Few city vehicles if I remember it properly too. I have some green plates and plenty of old grey giant plates.
  21. My latest modular is a townhouse with a shop of the first floor. There is no interior for this one yet. I have a few modular buildings in the works and I don't know when I'll get back to this one to fill out the interior. I'm thinking of making it an Optometrist office, but I'd be interested in hearing if you have a better idea! :) Close ups of the shop and balcony: And here it is next to my candy stop for comparison: Thanks for looking! I'll post again when I have an interior.... one of these days.
  22. This model was originally inspired by two sets: 7498 (Police Station from 2011), and two police cars from set 71016 (Kwik-E-Mart from 2015). I modified the station to have modular floors so you can access the inside easier. (these sections are all grouped separately in LDD as well) I also combined parts of set 7744 (2007's Police Headquarters set) into this model to make it like even better. However, their are three of this part in black missing from the model for the slanted windows. The bottom floor features a waiting room with a large TV, receptionist's desk and the garages for the two patrol cars under the jail cells. The second floor is the booking office and what will be desks / evidence containers. The third floor features a water cooler and coffee machine, along with detective offices. It will eventually feature a interrogation room. The jail cells open up both at the same time via a sliding panel. Their are also two escape routes via the toilets as seen above. The car is from set 71016, and all but for two differences is stock from the set. The roof has and light-bar been modified to allow for the cars to fit in the garage, and a licence plate added to the front of the each vehicle. The car features room for two officers side-by-side and one detained criminal behind the security barrier. The roof is removable, plus the doors and trunk open. The reason for building these models as they are is my town needs a police station, but I don't like the 4 wide cars they have in the CITY theme. I found an file of a police station sitting on my hard drive from 2013, just waiting for a car to be added to it. Then I remembered the Simpson's police car that was released a couple years back and the rest kinda fell into place.You can download the LDD file for the station and two patrol cars at this link here. As usual, comments, questions and complaints are always welcome!
