I would like to present my two latest MOCs that I have submitted to a contest organized by PLUG  :-D
The rules of the competition were simple. The theme of the contest was "Industry" and we had a size limitation of 16 x 32 studs.

This is my first experience building in micro scale.
I really enjoyed the challenge of building tiny little things. Sometimes it's hard finding a good solution to represent small details.


I hope you enjoy  ;-)

Sweet moc ! I especially like the use of the tubes ! What kind of string did you use as electrical wires ?

I forgot to say.
The red building, was inspired in a real power plant.
The old Lisbon Power Plant transformed into an Electricity Museum :-)

Nice moc!
I never ever try the micro scale. It seems too hard for me...
But you have captured the things very well! I like your construction site a lot! (even if the direct link to your gallery don't work well...).
Good job for your cement mixer, vey well done! *y*

Yes - mixer for president! :-D

Awesome work.  *wub* Thank you very much for sharing.
I think this has to be the size fitting to my microscale hospital. Great!

Two beautiful MOCs with a great arrangement of neat vehicles, some distinct landscaping, a smart dam and a fine industrial building, a cool cement mixer and
a well done overhead roadway construction. A fascinating micro world that is indeed! Power to the Lilliput side of the brick on!  *y*   :'-)

Thank you all for your kind replies  :-D
I'm glad you have enjoyed them.

I've a third, but stills a work in progress. I didn't have time to finish it before the competition's deadline.
Perhaps this weekend I'll end it  :-)
