  1. [MOC] MARTIAN

    That's inspired!! I love it!! Nice work!
  2. Mausoleum at Halicarnassus

    Nice build!! At first glance it looks pretty simple but then you start to spot all the little details and clever techniques you've used (as others have said the roof ornamentation especially is brilliant!!) Excellent work!!
  3. [MOC] Edificio Metropolis Madrid

    That is a stunning piece of work!! Comparing it to the real life photos, I love the attention to detail you've put into the walls and that dome is a work of art!!! Beautiful!! Excellent stuff!!!
  4. MOC: Pop Up Restaurant

    That's really cool!! I agree with others about the need for a window and an interior would be nice too but if you manage to get the toast to move that would be great!!! Nice work!!!
  5. [ MOC ] Mail Box at V City

    That is really cool - I love the modern "inside out design" and all the little details are spot on!! (The drones are a nice touch!!) Excellent work!!
  6. Ballabreek 2017

    Well, following the PR disaster that was the last update, the local mining company are now trying to rebuild trust with the local community by pointing out the good they've done for Ballabreek. Obviously there's the jobs they create but they've also put a lot of effort into projects such as the walking trail, constructed on old waste ground belonging to the mine... Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Most recently the mine owners have invested in an advanced drainage system to prevent the trail flooding during bad weather. Part of this has included new water storage tanks under the mine itself. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Here workers finish inspecting the storage tanks. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr While the decision to work with ACE Chemicals may have been a mistake, the company is proud to have worked closely with other local businesses. One such example is the neighbouring Space-Tech company which they provide with areas for testing newly developed equipment. Here a new manned rover that one day could be exploring the Moon or even Mars is being put through its paces. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Today's test is of the rover's laser drill, designed to vaporise rock so it can be analysed by an array of sophisticated sensors. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr While the rover is the work of local scientists, the laser itself has been developed by the Garmadon Institute of Technology (G.I.T). This institute, based in the far off land of NInjago, has recently made great strides in laser technology and the testing is overseen by a G.I.T scientist. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr The mine owners hope that sharing this work will improve the company's tarnished image but many locals still aren't convinced and as a precaution, following the recent protests, security at the mine has been stepped up. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr This week I finished getting the Ninjago Movie CMFs and thought I'd try and use a few... in the next few weeks we might learn more about the links between Ballabreek and Ninjago!! (I also wanted a reason to use the Creator 3-in-1 Space set... I especially like the rover - once I'd tweaked the colour scheme and got rid of the yellow pieces) Anyway, thanks for looking - comments are always welcome...
  7. [MOC] Roman History Museum

    Awesome stuff!! I really love that fountain and the bulding itself is perfect!! I really like the exhibits too!! I'd love to see a museum like this released as an official set!! (If only!!) Thanks for sharing!!
  8. Rome - Forum of Nerva - 962 A.D.

    Fantastic stuff!! I love the way you've captured the idea of a fallen Empire. Great attention to detail especially the vegetation gradually taking over and I really like the castle/fort built in the ruin of the grand pillared forum building!! Excellent work!!
  9. Well this worked for me . (I'm in the UK) I needed 4 more to complete a set; Misako, Great White, Jay and Kendo Kai and as I'm hopeless at accurately identifying them by touch, I found a recently opened box in my local Toymaster store and picked nos 5, 15, 18 and 19 and got exactly what I wanted!! Anyway, many thanks to Legofrik for posting this info - it's saved me a lot of time and money!!
  10. (MOC) Constitution Bar WIP

    Great looking bar!! The interior details are perfect - the exterior's sweet too!! I like the design of the door way and the way it curves inwards. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the building!! Nice work!!
  11. Ballabreek 2017

    Thanks for the comments... I've toyed with the idea of stop-motion but to be honest it takes long enough to set up the stills photos (and I guess I'd need proper lighting - space for sets etc) so for now at least it's just pics on my phone - but I do like setting up scenes/stories (makes me feel like a kid again!!) Speaking of which... what's been happening in Ballabreek today? Well it seems the locals have taken to the streets in protest!! But what's got them so cross? Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Here's our answer... a consignment of potentially deadly toxic waste due to be stored in a disused part of the mine!! Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr ACE Chemicals, the company behind the plan, claim that it poses no risk as the waste will be closely monitored and is transported/stored inside concrete cylinders tested to withstand a direct hit from a tank shell. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr The locals are unconvinced however and fearing the effect the plan could have on public health, the environment and the local tourist industry they launch a legal objection to the plan. Fearing they might lose the case, ACE Chemicals bring forward the first delivery of waste and so to buy time for their lawyers to do their thing, the locals are left to resort to direct action!! Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr The original protest group (in the skeleton outfits) block the entrance to the mine site and are soon joined by many other locals keen to lend their support and defend their community against the "Corporate Bullies"!! Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Like all good protests, they have signs and chants - "What do we want?" "Ace Out" "When do we want it?" "As soon as possible!!" and of course a protest song "We shall not, we shall not be moved..." Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr The local police are soon on the scene Officers manage the traffic around the demonstration. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr A negotiator talks to the protesters... Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr While another officer talks to the transport driver to avoid him escalating the situation. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr As the protest is noisy but peaceful, the police allow it to continue but when a protester armed with a hammer tries to damage the transporter she's quickly dealt with!! (despite claiming that she was an eco-warrior standing up for the rights of Planet Earth, Pamela Isley was later found guilty of criminal damage) Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr The protesters understand the importance of the media - here one of the leaders is being interviewed Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr The protest attracts residents of all ages!! Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr After a stand-off lasting most of the day, the protesters finally hear that their legal challenge has been successful and the judge has overruled the original planning decision. ACE are left with no option but to withdraw - a victory for people power!! Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Later, the head of Octan, ACE chemicals parent company, releases a statement criticising the police for their response but accepting the court decision - ending by saying that they are now looking at an alternative plan for the waste but giving no further details... Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr This update was inspired by the recent Lego Batman Movie Bane set... I love the truck but decided to lose the heavy weapons and use it to transport toxic waste... it should also lead into a future story... Anyway, thanks for looking... comments are always welcome...
