  1. G%$ #@&% it. Thanks to Akiyuki, The Rebricker, and the rest of you &%$*ers, I've now caught the GBC bug and it is going to cost me a lot of time and money. It all started with Akiyuki. Well, GBC didn't start with Akiyuki, but I was more or less "meh" on the whole concept until he came along. His ingenious mechanical solutions are mesmerizing, perplexing, and wonderful. Although I admired them from the start, I figured there was more or less no chance of me replicating them from the videos, especially since the one I was most interested in was also the most complicated: the ball factory. My involvement therefore remained stagnant (and non-existent) for a couple of years until The ReBricker showed up and proved that you really could reverse engineer the Ball Factory and then went one step further and posted video instructions for the whole thing. "Fine", I thought, "I'll just build that one." A few months of LDraw modeling, part collecting, building, testing, and display case building later I was hooked. It was one of the greatest building experiences I've ever had. This forum has repeatedly wished for a comprehensive set of instructions for the GBC modules of Akiyuki, and I've decided it is my responsibility to help make your dreams come true. With that in mind, I've compiled a list of all of Akiyuki's 28 non-Mindstorms modules with the goal of creating and/or finding complete PDF instructions for as many of them as possible and compiling the resources here. I've made a lot of progress already. Here is the list along with whatever I know about building material available.

I'm a stickler for accuracy, so I'm trying to get as close to Akiyuki's originals as possible. I already have PDF instructions ready for 4 of them and just need to test them out. As I build each model, I'll post a mini review about what I've learned and then I'll post links to the instructions and parts lists so anyone else can build them too. (Update: See bulleted list above for which instruction files are currently available.) As always, help is welcome. If you have successfully built any of these modules and are willing to share your information, please let me know here. In particular, I need LDraw files to make instructions. In a pinch, I can make them myself if you have detailed photos. In an even tighter pinch, I'm making everything myself from the videos, but it is slow going. Enjoy!
  2. Hi Eurobricks, I am a blind Lego fan. Mhy sighted friend and I have invented a system that enables blind people to build Lego sets independently! You can see it in action at: and you can find our text-based instructions at! Thanks! If the video link does not work, you can either paste into your address bar, and remove any spaces, or type Lego For The Blind into Youtube. Thanks! Oops, I thought that the previous link wouldn't work, but it does. No need to paste anything, just click on the link to watch the video.
  3. 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? ______________________________________
  4. From the designer of fantastic UCS-scaled MOCs comes a Hammerhead Corvette. The MOC contains 3,606 pieces in total, and measures 35 inches long, 13 inches wide, and 14 inches tall. Take down Imperial Star Destroyers with a UCS-scaled Hammerhead Corvette from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Despite the fact that the scale of this model is unknown, the model itself does not disappoint in terms of both accuracy and detail. There is an instructions bundle available for this MOC which includes a 480 page pdf instruction manual, a parts list, and LDD files. All we ask is an exchange of 35 U.S Dollars ($35) for the entire bundle. For more details about purchasing the bundle, please either PM me or contact me at via email. As for sticker, The manual includes a plate to where the sticker will go, but until more information is learned about the Hammerhead, a sticker will not officially be released. Here are some images from the manual that show the design and completed model: Parts list: Please use this topic to discuss anything about the MOC including the building process, questions, part substitutions, etc.
  5. Wished I posted this sooner......... When I was originally had the model normal it couldn't go over an half inch actual brick tile :(. Due to that I spent a long time modifying it to barely go through grass about as tall as the pretend sticker grill. This thing can go over an emaxx tire with its 2 not one xl motors and it had an l motor for steering (only do if your not using 3rd party tires) if using 3rd party tire use an xl motor for steering (I only had 2). I'm now building a a25E tanker to spray weed killer for me so I don't need to sweat to death. Since its super easy to detach the bed I could be able to switch the tanker and soon changed bed be swappable maybe? Picture from very first successful time. Version 1.0 instructions: Video as just a quick demo of some average grass: This is what I'm building while doing Ingmar Spijkhoven 6x6 truck and stay tuned!
  6. 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 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
  7. Last year I stumbled across Marshall Banana's massive, and exquisitely detailed Millennium Falcon MOC. I was quite impressed by the model as it makes Lego's official UCS appear quite pitiful in comparison. I had always felt Lego's UCS was a bit blocky looking (even for Lego) to begin with. After discovering Marshall Banana's custom, my first thought was "I'm going to build this one day." I tossed it into my browser's bookmark folder and didn't think about it for another four months or so. It was then that I decided to open a new project in LDCad and "just mess around with it." A couple of months and 200 hours later, I had a complete digital model. 60 hours after that, I had a complete real model. Finally another 70 hours and I had a complete instruction manual (available here if you're interested). Youtube | Ultimate Lego Millennium Falcon | Timelaps Build My model, while a very near twin of Marshall Banana's masterpiece, also boasts a number of upgrades and improvements throughout. I did succumb to using some "cheater" moves to avoid some techniques I didn't like. Most notably, I didn't like the technique used for the rear engines that involved bending stacked 1x2 plates. It put way too much tension on the bricks that would inevitably lead to cracking. My solution was to use 1/8 brass hobby rod as a 3mm rigid hose alternative and arrange the greeble and engine details into clip-on sections. This lead to another fix for the upper and lower edges of the engines. MB seemed to achieve a slight angle by attaching the pieces unevenly on the studs (assuming I interpreted correctly from the pictures). I really didn't like this, so I added another 1/8 rod at the correct height to allow the pieces to clip in and rest at the correct angle. I've made numerous other modifications including a number of shape adjustments to the shell plates to allow them to fit more evenly. View full Flickr album here.
  8. Those of you with good memories may remember this gondola: It first appeared in the thread for @Commander Wolf's T18, and has since appeared in various videos of our locomotives. The gondola is a relatively straightforward design, being a modernized version of the body from 4543 Railroad Tractor Flatbed mated to trucks from the My Own Train series of cars (10013, 10015, 10016, 10017). Besides being pleasantly "official" in style, the design is fairly international; we liked it because it looked decent when paired with locomotives from various parts of the world. I've gone ahead and made instructions for this model: You can get them in PDF form below: International Gondola (PDF) In exchange, would you mind giving me some feedback on the instructions themselves? For example, are they easy to follow? What don't you like about them? etc. Enjoy! P.S. If you prefer images to a pdf, there is a Brickshelf gallery here (pending moderation).

  10. From the designer of the most famous AT-AT MOC comes a UCS Tie Defender. The MOC contains 1,676 pieces in total. Despite being a relatively simple design consisting of a base with 3 identical wings, the model itself does not disappoint in terms of both accuracy and detail. There is an instructions bundle available for this MOC which includes a 162 page pdf instruction manual, a parts list, and LDD files. All we ask is an exchange of 20 U.S Dollars ($20) for the entire bundle. For more details about purchasing the bundle, please either PM me or contact me at via email. For the sticker, I recommend printing it at 122mm width by 61mm height after downloading the original file in the bundle. Here are some images from the manual that show the design and completed model: The Rebrickable listing will be approved soon for an easy to access parts list. Please use this topic to discuss anything about the MOC including the building process, questions, part substitutions, etc.
  11. This was really hard. The pieces were quite hard t use, just like the a-model functions ;) But I spent $40 on this set, so I thought I would do something with it. Video at the bottom also contains Instructions. Thanks BrickbyBrick ;)
  12. Searching for instructions for nice MOCs was mostly fruitless, so I turned my attention to official Lego instructions from sets that had something cool in it. 75000 has instructions for a relatively simple droideka, but I don't have all the necessary parts yet. 76051 had Ant-Man as jumbo Giant-Man. Still need to order a few more special parts like the face and hands and connectors. 30611 is the buildable R2-D2, again with special parts.
  13. Hello Eurobrickers! I have a great announcement for you guys, especially those who are interested in Cavegod's UCS AT-AT. Over the past month or so, I have worked a countless number of hours in order to bring all of you guys something that this MOC deserved ever since its creation, a proper instruction manual. Yes, that's right, the famed issues of LDD will no longer be apart of this project thanks to this manual. Now I'm sure you're wondering, how big is a 6000+ piece manual? Well, to answer that question, the manual is a massive 1,089 pages. No that is not a typo, ONE THOUSAND AND EIGHTY NINE PAGES!!! In order to receive this manual, it is available for a price of $35 per copy. For information or to talk to me about purchasing a copy, please PM me or email me at . If it is a common question and not one specific to you, please feel free to comment it here, and I will answer it, unless you want to PM or email me. A special thanks goes out to both Cavegod and drdavewatford. Cavegod designed a masterful MOC, one of the greatest ever, and drdavewatford was kind enough to allow me use of some of his photos throughout the manual. This could not be achieved without you guys! Enough of me talking, here are some images directly from the manual:
  14. Hi Guys, been a while! Just thought I would drop a quick line letting anyone know that instructions are available for my GTHO, only 4.5 years after I first started building! hahaha. I have received a lot of enquirers about the instructions and its those people that keep me at it, through to completion. Please check out Rebrickable. :) Now I can finally start on something new! YAY ;P
  15. I'am looking for an instruction creator that works good with LDD. I'am trying it with blueprint, works great with LDD but big moc's are hard to manage. LIC is ok but leaves out parts, not very compatible with LDD. That's the same with Lpub and not very user friendly. Any ideas? Regards RobenAnne Ps my website My website
  16. Taking a few critical looks at my original A-wing MOC, I decided that a few important improvements were in order to get the shapes and proportions right. So I spent a few hours during the past few weeks to revisit the built, and a lot has changed - quite a lot, especially with the internal frame and the way this model is built. The changes were neccessary to accomodate the more correct outer shape, and to retain the sturdiness of the original MOC. Now Ahsoka's ride was finally finished, and after a few intelligence missions into imperial territory and a daring escape, Ahsoka asked Chopper to check her A-wing for imperial transmitters in an abandoned facility from the Clone Wars before returning to Phoenix Squadron. "What have you done, Chopper?! When I told you to take this thing apart to check for transmitters, I meant it figuratively, not literally!" "Badoop, ba ba. Arrrrrh!" "Ach, okay. Now let's check these sub-assemblies, and then help me put this thing back together, understood?" "Woop, woop!" If anyone would like to create an lxf-file - be my guest! Enjoy and have fun!
  17. Hello Train Tech, I have seen some people selling instructions/plans for train MOCs. Out of curiosity, I have some questions for those of you who have bought or sold such things: BUYERS Why do you buy MOC instructions? Which instructions did you buy? Why did you choose those instructions? Do you prefer printed or digital instructions? Why? Could you share some particularly enjoyable or frustrating moments from using the instructions? SELLERS Why did you start selling instructions? How do you choose which models to offer instructions for? Are there models you started working on with the intent of offering instructions for them, rather than as an afterthought? Could you share some particularly enjoyable or frustrating moments from making and selling instructions? Many thanks to anyone who answers -- I'm genuinely curious to know!
  18. I watched a bunch of nice HD YouTube videos of a guy in Japan giving tours of the Odaiba Lego Store and LEGOLAND. There was a room with a city layout with a giant Tokyo Tower and a giant Tokyo Skytree and various other landmark buildings like the Fuji TV building, Tokyo Station. Does Lego ever make available instructions and parts lists for these showcase creations? One day I would like to build one of these landmarks in mini figure scale. Even a smaller scale Tokyo Tower would be nice if I could find instructions and parts lists.
  19. So.. I started trying to assemble some of my older lego sets from my giant box of mixed pieces from various sets i got throughout the years. I knew i had the pieces to the Mobile Defense Tank from Lego Exo-Force. So i looked up the instructions booklet on the interwebs and came across something pretty confusing. First look at the front box image. Now look at the finished version in the instruction booklet from LEGO's official site. Notice something? Yes. The Bar between the tracks is missing from the actual build. The bar can be slightly be seen on the rear tracks also, on the box image, but they are not in the actual build. There's more... Things got even more weird, because it turned out that i have been following two different instruction booklets... On this website: I found the instructions in the image below. These instructions show, that the bar between the tracks is put into place. But on the instructions you can download as PDF on top of the page, the bar is not included. The bar is not included in the instructions on LEGO's official site either. Looking through both instructions, there are actually a few more things that is different. The build of the canopy varies also. Even the parts list in different. Now... Can anyone explain what is happening? I have been browsing the interwebs for hours, trying to figure out if there is more than one version of this build but i cannot find any evidence. Did they change the build over time or what is happening? I really hope someone can explain this to me.
  20. The Next Generation Scania was presented in August, and I knew that I was going to build it. I was hoping to be the first in the world to make this Next Generations Scania out of lego, and I think I am! Instructions is available at my site: Video is on youtube:
  21. Hi, My name is Miguel, and im new to this forum. I like to build sets from loose parts, so, i depend a lot from downloaded instructions. But i have some problems with some pdf, that doesnt clearly notes the contour of the pieces, i.e. 7048 and 7781. I have tried looking at de ldd, but its not the same. any idea how to solve? Thanks in advance and sorry for bad english.
  22. Hi everyone, First things first, let me re-introduce myself. In the past, I used to use the name 'erelender' here, mainly because I wasn't aware that my account name would be my display name while signing up 2.5 years ago. I haven't been very active lately, but if you've ever heard about me, it would be thanks to my TC9 entry, Manitou Telehandler, which won 3rd place. Thanks to @Jim, I'm now able to use the name I'd like Now that re-introduction is out of the way, I can present you my latest models: Mini Construction Vehicles Series One day, while I was sitting on my lego desk, thinking of what to build, I found myself building a small bulldozer. Then I kept building and rebuilding it for the entire weekend. In the end I quite liked the little chap, so I went ahead and built a number of other construction vehicles in the following couple of weeks when I found the time. They are definitely not modeled after any real-life ones. There is also no set scale for the group, but I'd say they are somewhat close to each other mostly. Bulldozer This was the first to come, and my favourite, with angle-adjustable and liftable blade, and liftable ripper. PDF Instructions Rebrickable Link Excavator This one was the second, but I rebuilt it from scratch after the others because I wasn't satisfied. Includes rotating super-structure, arm movement, and liftable front blade. PDF Instructions Rebrickable Link Mining Truck The third one built, but my second favourite. I just love how tough it looks with those tyres, even though they are much sportier than they should be. This one was probably the most challenging one of the lot because I just couldn't get the size of the cabin&bed as I liked, but I'm satisfied with it now. It only features tipping bed, but hey, it's something :) PDF Instructions Rebrickable Link Skid-Steer Loader with Forks The fourth one, and the smallest. Even though it's not as heavy-duty as its siblings, it wins in the area of being cute and still functional. It's also white because at this point I was beginning to run out of small yellow parts, and I just couldn't build it in yellow. PDF Instructions Rebrickable Link Road Grader Number 5. Nothing special about this one other than that the blade height is so nicely fit that it would really grade if I put it on some soft sand :D PDF Instructions Rebrickable Link Road Roller The last one. I was basically out of yellow parts, so this is definitely not the best of the bunch, but it still resembles the real thing and it works. PDF Instructions Rebrickable Link For the Full-Size images, please check my Flickr Photostream. After finishing all 6 models, I thought they were good excuse to learn LDCad and LPub, so I went ahead and created instructions for all of them. I must say I really liked LDCad after switching from MLCad. Some things are much easier to do in LDCad. In the end it was a fun project spanning around a month or so for everything. Thanks for reading, I hope you like them. Cheers
  23. LEGO was kind enough to provide us with detailed models of the JTO model so that it should be easy enough to build it now; at some point I might myself go and create step-by-step instructions, but this will more than suffice. On my Flickr Courtesy of LEGO (obviously), credit to the designers: Nicolaas Vás (Brickthing), Corvin Stichert (Vezok's Friend) and Niek van Slagmaat (who I believe took the photos, so an extra thanks!) Sorry if this does actually belong on the contest page, but I felt at some point this was a big enough issue on its own =)
  24. My former LEGO Ideas project Medieval Micro Modulars seems to have gained some popularity on Pinterest (although it has expired some time ago). I created instructions for it now so anyone can build this although it hasn't become an official set! The Medieval Micro Modulars are a line of detailed microscale buildings in a medieval setting. This can be expanded any time with new buildings or maybe a market place, a town wall or even a castle! Each of the five parts I designed consists of a building based on an 8x8 plate and an equally sized street piece. The streets are populated by trees, wells, market stalls, animals like donkeys (can pull hay carts), sheep or goats and colorfully clothed microfigures (including a guard with a lance)! Each building consists of about 200-250 pieces (including street and accessories). You can download the PDF instructions (for free) on my website Hope you like it! Also feel free to design your own additional buildings and post them here if you like!
  25. I need a LEGO program that alows me to create building instructions for my models, but not LD, not only because the building instructions aren't good, but also because my build have an RC buggy motor that is not on LDD, and I'm making a car contest in which the winner get building instructions for a LEGO bmw Isetta, and I want to give high quality stuff. The builder who suggest the program that works better for me, will also get BUilding instructions of it for the collaboration. Please help me with this, it would be really appreciated!
