Hi there,

after a busy half year with many new creations done as an employee of a LCP I start build some own mocs.

In addition, I have joined a group of autors to publish a construction book about knights realm.

Posted Image

The publishing date will be in september and for more information I will start a new topic if it is done.

And for this we need some background material to present some bigger and some little special mocs.

One of this little mocs is a medieval crane.
He should be placed in a harbor scene with some houses, figures and a ship.
The ship was easily done - my Revenge.
For the rest I build some buildings and a heavy time required cobblestones street in one week.
The result was better than expected, so I decided to present it here as well.
The final picture will be highres and professional photoshoped.

My pictures are done after that and photoshoped too. But more quick & dirty :pir-grin:

enjoy

The next two pictures show the photoshoot scene. The final shot for the book will only show a little bit of this but we need the whole build to find
the perfect shot.

What a gorgeous scene! The building techniques seems simple but the end result is brilliant! Posted Image
I'll definitely write a post about it at HistoryBricks.

Great work! I really like your use of the new masonry bricks, and the overall street scene is excellent. And I'm still in awe of your ship!

I can't possibly say enough good things about this outstanding creation.  I have wanted to do something like this for a while, but anything I would do is blown away by this work.  I especially love the realistic wench and the variety of architecture, and the ship at the end of the photos is phenomenal.  Thank you!

Love the crane, these have fascinated me for years. I totally get building a giant MOC around this item!

I will look forward to the book as well.

A colonial harbour!  Just what our Merchants and Haven Guard need!  Got any experience building LEGO sets?

I like how you've gone to the extra effort of removing the background and inserting something far more interesting.   The Imperial Armada also has a very good presence in their need uniforms so that is very pleasing to see.
