  1. Hello guys! Finally I added English subs to my ww2 stopmotion "Battle of Berlin" So, last great battle of ww2!
  2. This diorama shows a scene from Fury movie. It's a moment before Sherman tank crew attack approaching German infantry. In the movie this was the last battle where damaged Sherman tank defends the crossroad.
  3. Hello guys! As far as you remember May 1945 was the last month of ww2 in Europe. So I decided to make a lego ww2 stop motion about the battle of Berlin. The stop motion itself is not ready yet but I 've made a trailer.
  4. Hi all, It has been a long time since I presented my project Dora: German railway gun 800mm. I have now completed the diorama (or at least the first section), I hope you like the result. E 'it completed by 2 SDKF-Z, 1 panzer TIGER, 1 Raupenschlepper. I really like the final outcome, and I hope it's the same for you Full View: Front view: Panzer Tiger 1: Raupenschlepper: Opel Blitz destroyed by aviation: SDKF-z Units:
  5. Hello, I am Franck from France ! after my darkage, I fall again on bricks since 2012, and I begin to expose since 2015 (some small scenes and mocs) I am interested by History, so many scenes I make are about military history : as old ages (Greek or Roman), XIXth century (I begin a 1870 war scene), and essentially WW2. As I like some SF or apocalyptic scenes, I try to make some scene about StarWars or Metro 2033
  6. Hi all! I'm mostly a technic moc builder, and during the last few years, I didn't post about anything except technik, but now I'd like to present my mini tanks and self propelled guns. The theme is the first world war, except a few, there will be posted mocs only about real tanks. Prototypes, which were built in relality (but never seen combat), also can be found here. My concept: all tanks (no SP guns, because there was one-two prototypes only) are built in more or less microfig scale, my reference is the Tiger1 german tank, it's 6 studs wide, so 6 stud is 3,7 meter. So 1 meter is eqaul to 1,62 studs. The width is determinative, the smallest tanks are 3 studs wide, the small ones are 3-4, the mediums are 4-5. The heavy and super heavy tanks have 6 or 7+ width. All mocs in this topic are built only digital so far, but I'm planning to make them in reality, too, as my financial status and time allows. All tanks were made in LDD, and rendered with Pov-ray. I will update this topic frequently, as a new tank is done. Sooner or later I'll post also real pictures beside renders. Some tanks requires special stickers and thchniques (like covering a part to be in the requested color, or connect the tracks with strings), I will write that in these cases. I tried to use only real colored parts (except few cases, where they are covered with stickers). I tried to catch the characteristics of tanks, instead of being 100% proportional, but I tried to make them as proportional, as possible in this size. Sometimes there aren't a lot of possibilities to make proportional, for example: the tank should be 4,5 studs wide. Width can only be a round number, so a tank which should be 4,5 w, is disproportionate already. Main folder of all tanks: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=548239 I render one picture about one tank, if you want to see more, ask for it, I can make more in LDD, or render about the requested part/viewpoint. There will be a lot of mocs, so I also opened a topic for WW2 tanks, see here: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=100891 The tanks: 1. Renualt Ft-17: French light tank, mother of all modern tanks, the first one with 360° rotatable turret. Was quite fast and effective. Info: http://en.wikipedia....wiki/Renault_FT Big picture: http://www.brickshel...nualt_ft-17.png It's a typical 3 studs wide very little tank, but thanks to it's individual shape, can be recognize easily. 2. Mark IV (male version): The first british tank in combat, very iconic and famous. Had no suspension and was pretty big with more than one guns. Info: http://en.wikipedia....ki/Mark_IV_tank Big picture: http://www.brickshel...-IV/mark-iv.png The front shape around the tracks is very special, angled and rounded, I think brick technique is better here than plates. There isn't a lot of variations from hoses, the big cannons standard 3mm wide (like in most of my tanks), the smaller machine guns are screw drivers. I'm planning to make all significant ww1 tanks, like K-wagen, Tsar tank, A7V, Gun carrier Mark 1, Whippet, Saint Chamond, etc... to be continued...
  7. The Battle of France, also known as the Fall of France, was the German invasion of France and the Low Countries in 1940 during the Second World War. In six weeks from 10 May 1940, German forces defeated Allied forces by mobile operations and conquered France, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, bringing land operations on the Western Front to an end until 6 June 1944. Italy entered the war on 10 June 1940 and attempted an invasion of France. I wanted to start creating some mocs with WW2 theme and Brickwarriors with their amazing new figs, gave me the inspirastion !! I created a diorama with the Germans after a fight.. in the roads of Paris! The main moc.. The squad.. The buildings.. I hope you like it!! C&C are welcome!! P.s. The Panzer IV Ausf. G Tank is a design from Brian Fitzsimmon with a little upgrade in some parts from me for stability and to move turret around and up-down.
  8. To kick off the new year, BrickWarriors just released even more WW2 accessories! Following gains on the Pacific front of World War II, the US, Britain, and other Allied nations launched a strategic takeover of the Italian island of Sicily, grabbing control from the Italians and Germany to open up sea lanes in the Mediterranean and disrupting German campaigns on the Eastern Front. Today, BrickWarriors introduced the British Sapper accessories in honor of the success of this major European gain: -Allies Grenade -British Rocket -British Rocket Launcher -British LMG -British Revolver There were mass atrocities committed during World War II. But one of the most egregious was the Commando Order issued by Germany, in which any Allied forces be killed on sight even if they surrendered, completely contradictory to the laws of war. The Germans felt this necessary after countless raids on their territories and subsequent perceived mistreatment of German forces taken by these raiding Commandos. Today, the new British Commando accessories land on BrickWarriors: -Commando Cap -Commando Knife -Harpoon Gun -Oxygen Tank -Commando Carbine With the Americans now landed in Europe, Operation Torch was carried out on Northern Africa to fortify the Allies position from the south before taking Germany head-on, helping to alleviate the pressure on the Soviets on the Eastern Front. This campaign cleared the Mediterranean more completely in combination with the taking of Italy, a strategic move to keep supplies flowing as the Allies advanced on Germany. Today, BrickWarriors is excited to release our US Mortar Man accessories and torso: -Mortar Tube -Mortar Shell -Binoculars -Mortar Man Torso
  9. here my U-boat, hope u like it, people asked me for some images, i made a video for lego ideas, i will put soon the link here and into yt video for voting, im waiting for approval Thanks!!! Omar
  10. Hi please see the prototype that I made. The color of the body is a bit too dark that the shadow drawn on the cloth is invisible. Also I have to draw the lines of textures in white. Are they too thick and bright? Something is wrong with the printing on the legs and hips. And the color of the hips should also be dark green but I couldn't find one. I also attached some photos of scenery that I made from other minifigures. Any suggestions will be welcomed! http:// http:// Some dioramas that I made: http:// http:// http:// http://
  11. hello, im selling all my legos, need some money so i will keep my mocs, so i builded a huge one, to use all parts that could be nice to put in use into a future moc its a pre ww2 based plane, i already put the wip step into another topic, here i will put the final version, if you guys have ideas to improve, you all are welcome!

  12. Good evening. This is my first post here in Special LEGO Themes; so far I appeared only in Star Wars department, so... hello everyone! To be honest, I wanted - finally, after so many unsuccesful attempts! - to build an early 76 mm turret (model 1940) for my T-34 tanks family but I failed again and then found some consolation building this - a tank destroyer / self-propelled gun SU-85, also based on the famous T-34 chassis. It happened very quickly (by my standards, anyway ;) ) - in just 5 or 6 evenings and virtually zero Bricklink orders. I'm pleased with the gun mantlet and general proportions of the model. Not so pleased with gap between glacis and side walls. And that's it, I guess. Please take a look at the photos. Comments welcome! P.S. I did not bother building ground plates just for this model - what you see in the last picture are modular plates I created for my ongoing Endor Project. False perspective rules ;) .

  13. Hi all, let me introduce last MOC. Year 1944, september, Holland. Small village near Nijmegen. Scouts from 82. airborne division discovered hiding german tank from 10. SS-Panzer-Division „Frundsberg“ at the beginning of the operation Market Garden.

  14. Hey guys, Never posted in this topic before so here we go... I was inspired when playing World of Tanks to recreate a tank from the game and behold... Lego Jagdpanzer 38(t) 'Hetzer' by Tom Gray, on Flickr (sorry for pic quality) Those tankers among you may have noticed there is a pair of wheels missing. Is this too obvious? Any criticisms welcome
  15. I'm usually only posting in the Star Wars forum, and I love to build all sorts of vehicles. From time to time though, I want to build something from the real world, and I'm particulary fascinated by the look and design of military vehicles from WW2, which brings me back full circle to Star Wars, since the design of Star Wars is significantly inspired by WW2 military vehicles. So I set out to build an iconic tank - the Tiger 1. Granted, there are lots of Lego-versions of this vehicle out there, and a quick google-search immediately makes it obvious from which creations I took cues on how to build certain elements - because why re-invent the wheel? Still, I did many things differently and on every step referenced an accurate model of the vehicle. The turret is my own take, because I felt that none of the turrets I saw in other creations truly captured the characteristic shape in a clean, uncluttered way. You will notice that I simplified the gun to keep the overall look uncluttered and avoid unnecessary texture where should be none. Last but not least, I also built the model with a detailed interior to make it more interesting as a whole. I hope you like it, and feel free to comment.
  16. This is Kfz.301 called Funkmastkraftwagen I don't know what is Funkmastkraftwagen, But I think it must Radio Truck. this truck is based on Mercedes-Benz LG3000 truck. that giant thing Looks like Cannon(?) can stand.
  17. This MOC is very fragile. Lots of SNOT technique were used when I built it. But still, the cockpit cabin can be opened and the propeller is rotating too.
  18. I made a small display of landing in Normandy. I use both of my MOCs; LCVP Higgins Boat and Willys MB. As you see, I also added some soldiers and obstacles on the beach. A few details on the water is missing, but still, here it is. Here is a picture from exhibition. As you see, water is now made with transparent plates. Presentation of other creations you see behind will follow....
  19. The M4 Sherman, officially Medium Tank, M4, was the most numerous battle tank used by the United States and some of the other Western Allies in World War II. The crew. We salute you!
  20. The Volkswagen Kübelwagen was a light military vehicle based heavily on the Volkswagen Beetle. It was prototyped as the Type 62, but eventually became known internally as the Type 82.
  21. The M3 Half-track, known officially as the Carrier, Personnel Half-track M3, was an American armored personnel carrier widely used by the Allies during World War II. Since this is a personnel carrier, there's room for more minifigs. Next to the driver, there's seating for the soldiers in the back. Three soldiers in the back have more than enough room. Considering the monochrome structure of the Carrier, the backpacks and the soldiers' uniforms provide some colour distraction. The soldiers mount the Carrier through the back door, which can be opened and closed in this LEGO model.
  22. Somewhere on the Western Front a young sailor fell in love with a beautiful "lady of the night". While he was leaving her, he met a civilian going in her house with flowers and a bottle of wine. Jealousy was stronger than wisdom and the sailor punched him. Fortunately, the MP and the Medics came quickly. For this diorama I used the demolished building, the Willys MB and the Dodge WC54.
  23. Every Army needs an ambulance. I hope that enemy will see all this Red crosses. Medics are on the way. Plenty of room for injured soldier.
  24. After watching James Cameron's documentary on the underwater expedition to the wreck of the battleship Bismarck and a few other documentaries on World War 2 naval warfare, I wanted to build some of the warships of that period with Lego. I decided to build these models in scale to each other and in a size resembling common model kits of such ships - small enough to be a challenge to build with Legos, yet large enough to allow for detail and characteristic shapes and features. Since I never built ships with Legos, I searched the net for examples of World War 2 warships built with Legos at the size I had in mind. My first build, the Bismarck, was at first a reverse-engineered build based completely on the MOC Operation Rheinübung by Locutus 666, which you can find here: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/377978 I especially liked the accuracy of the complex superstructure, which was fun to re-create and taught me a few neat building-techniques for achieving lots of detail at this 'small' scale. When I was done, however, further research into the short but dramatic history of this battleship led me to improve quite a few things. First of all, I wasn't very pleased with the hull, and built a completely new one using SNOT and stacked plates and tiles to achieve a correct shape, size, and the characteristic wooden planks on the armoured main deck. I also changed some details on and added a few more to the superstructure to make it more accurate. For instance, the funnel is much more accurate now. The changes I made which are readily apparent deal with the colouring. I chose to build the model according to the paint job the battleship actually wore during Operation Rheinübung. The Swastika inside the red banner on the bow and stern sections of the main deck have been painted over with grey, as were the black and white stripes on the side of the hull. The Bismarck only retained its white fake waves on the sides of the bow. The masts and radar installations had been painted a very dark grey which almost appeared black. Also, the funnel top was silver throughout the Bismarck's lifetime. The dark red parts resembling the boats are a bit of an artistic choice. The real boats had dark red-brownish elements, yet were mostly a light grey, but in order to make them stand out and not have them look like some other part of the superstructure, I chose to use dark red pieces for them. Here's how my model looks: Since building this model was fun and I'm very pleased with the result, I decided to have a go at another ship, this time of another type and with its construction stopped after the Bismarck was destroyed. It's the german aircraft carrier Graf Zeppelin, the first ship of this type in the german Kriegsmarine. The most notable feature of this ship were it's two steam-powered catapults, at the time said to be by far the strongest to be found on any aircraft carrier. Since the real thing was never finished and we will therefore never know how the superstructure and armament would have finally looked, I chose to base my model on detailed drawings by the U.S. naval intelligence from that period. Note that the armoured flight deck would most likely have been covered with wooden planks, but I went for a grey finish with a few markings to indicate the two lifts, the catapults and the rear edge of the flight deck. Here's the model: Last, but not least, I built a smaller support vehicle, namely a 1936B-Type Destroyer. Here it is: What better way to end this post than with a photograph of the whole tiny flotilla? Here it is. As for scale, the Bismarck is almost 46 cm long, and the Graf Zeppelin is 47 cm long. It's quite possible that I will build more ships from that period, maybe the german pocket battleship Graf Spee, or one of the fast battlecruiser of the Scharnhorst-class. The Mighty Hood (HMS Hood) is a great candidate to be turned into a model as well. Wheteher you like or dislike what you see, have suggestions, ideas, or something interesting to add, please comment!
  25. Hello everyone :) I recently completed this MOC, which is, as the title says, a WWII museum. On the left side you can see a variety of helmets and weapons (Purchased from Brickmania). In the corner there is a mini diorama that represents the battle of the bulge with two German soldiers outfitted with Winter camouflage. Two British and American soldiers (manikins) can be seen on display at the right side of the MOC. As a center display, I decided to put a willy's jeep. Anything you like or don't like? Please let me know, I am all for constructive criticism :) Thank you, Luckypat
