    MOC - Snow White Cottage

    My LEGO version of the Snow White and the 7 dwarfs cottage (based on Thomas Kinkade depiction). I watched the movie when I was a kid and I vividly remember how I wanted to live in a cottage in the woods after seeing this one! Although I rushed the build a bit, it was fun to build because I haven't build something "castle" for a long time and I wanted to try some new stuff like the roof or the newer shades of greens or play around with the vegetation using odd pieces and parts. Still some things didn't came out as I planned but I wanted to finish this to make room for other projects. Thanks to Markus for coming everyday to my desk and give me some hints and motivation! :D Hope you guys like it! Just like a doll's house

    MOC - Café Shop

    For many years I've been a fan of doozy models and have a bunch of them pinned on my Pinterest account! And finally I was able to build one of them: the little charming European Café Shop! Managed to put a lot of details and tried a few techniques that I had in mind for a while but also some new stuff! What’s your favourite detail? Mine is definitely the small chair and the lamps! Thanks for the millionth time to <a href="#//www.flickr.com/photos/moriartus" rel="nofollow">Markus</a> for all the hints and suggestions! Hope you guys like it Café shop

    [MOC] - Bumblebee (Transformers)

    Thanks! It is only flame yellowish orange!
  4. Hi guys! It’s been almost 9 months since I last posted something here! Been very busy with work and this is been ready for a few months but I was only able to upload it now. Loved the cartoons when I was a kid and really liked the first Transformers movie from 2007, so I decided to build bumblebee, which is by far my favourite Autobot! This was quite a cheral months as it is way out of my comfort zone. For those attending the Skaerbaeck Fan Weekend in a couple of weeks, if you would like to see it, it will be there! :) Thanks to Markus Rollbühler for the incentive and the tips :) And no, it doesn't transform into a beautiful Camaro! Hope you guys like it! Bumblebee Bumblebee Bumblebee
  5. After fulfilling his contracted task on the enchanted forests of the west region, Adam and Terryn started their return trip to Albion. They’ve been riding for 3 days and are now on BlueWater Castle region. The castle and the surrounding lands belongs to Sir Bridger and his beautiful daughter, Lady Melissa. Adam, but specially Terryn, are tired and in need for a resting place. Maybe Sir Bridger would welcome them on his castle to spend the night? Perhaps they could even get a chance to meet Lady Melissa and her legendary beauty… Hey guys, I was going to post these MOC on History Forum, but I thought it would fit well on the West Region of avalonia, my current Guild as it is home to mighty stone castles. Also, can I somehow put the castle on Avalonian map? Is that possible? I consider myself a castle builder, but I have never build a castle in the real sense of the word, so I thought it was about time I build one. As I’m working on a big display to my LUGs expositions (Comunidade 0937) and having access to a lot more parts I could go a little wild. :) This MOC stands on a footprint of 4x3 (48x48) baseplates and is more than 3 feet high. I had a clear idea of what I wanted to do since the beginning, but of course some modifications and adjustments were made along the build, such as the positioning of the various towers on the main walls or the shape of the half-timbered sections. A few facts and thoughts that I would like to share: - Its viewable from the 4 sides and completely modular so it can easily be transported. - Despite having access to more parts, I still had some limitations. So, for instance, I had to use more LBG 1x2 plates and 1x2 masonry dark tan bricks on the walls that I wanted but nevertheless I think it turned out Ok all the same. - The colors used on the landscape terrain are not the ones that I would like to use, but again, due to its size, I had to use more common ones. - I build this at home and took me about 250 hours in 50 or so days to build this MOC. - I have no idea how many parts it’s made off! If someone as a rough idea, please let me now. But I can tell you that just on the landscape alone and on the castle interiors I used around 10000 2x4 bricks of various colors and on the walls I used at least 4000 round 1x1 bricks. - The landscape was not my priority as it will sure suffer some changes and adding’s when integrated on the full display so I spend just 5 days on it and is not yet as I want him to look. - Also, the trees are somewhat simple as I need them to be brickbuild (for easier transportation and also due to time restrictions) but I kind like them that way. - Naturally, I’m a BIG noob in taking good pics and these are total crap (overexposed, poor lighting, poor focus). Taking reasonable ones was a huge #$#/&%$ pain and in my opinion it looks so much better in person :) Hope you all like it. It sure was an immense fun to build these one :) I will try to upload more pics in a few days before I get this huge thing in card boxes :) BlueWater Castle BlueWater Castle BlueWater Castle

    Awesome guys! This was a surprise! Miss building castle...
  8. Hey everybody, this is my last build of the year and the last one for at least a few months as I've said in my flickr account a few days before I'll be moving to Billund on January. This build was actually started a few months ago but I never got the chance to finish it until now. And as I got a big chunk of my collection unsorted and my time is very limited right now, I didn't manage to get the results I wanted. A river was planned as well as a richer landscape and more leaves on the upper part. Anyway, hope you like it! :) Thoryn Arper Tree House Thoryn Arper Tree House Thoryn Arper Tree House
  9. Hey everybody. The 6th Arte em Peças held on Paredes de Coura, the annual exhibition that my LUG, Comunidade 0937, organizes every year took place on the last weekend of May and on the first of June. It was a blast! I was responsible for the Enchanted Forest display featuring my Bluewater castle, Wedgwood House, Morisledge Cottage, Green Lake Tower Ruins and other MOCs that I made for it. Special thanks to Hugo Santos https://www.flickr.com/photos/hugosantos0937/ who build the wonderful green roof church and elaborate the display' s scheme (were all the buildings would be, were the rivers would pass, etc). It has 6 by 14 Baseplates (48x48 studs) and my estimation is that it has more then 500.000 parts. Every single Baseplate has some texture and elevations and many are elevated 10 or more bricks to give more sense of depth. The landscape came out a little poor as I ran out of parts for trees and vegetation. I would have liked to give it a sense of a more thick and full forest, but it was not possible. Also, my intention was to put a lot more minifigs, specially on the village center with more activity situations, but I just didn't have the time I would like to thank my buddies of 0937 for helping me in every way that they could. This was only possible because of the effort of many. Hope you like it! Enchanted Forest Enchanted Forest

    [MOC] Mini Simpsons House

    Hey everybody. Just a quick build from last night. I'm a big fan of the show and since LEGO released the set I've been wanting one. But dont have the space to properly display it, so I build a miniature one. It's a simple build, but it looks quite nice on the glass cabinet ;) Hope you like it.

    Point Dume Residence

    Thanks again guys, it's always nice to read your kind comments :) Well, the transblue 1x1 round plates (water), the 1x2 bley slopes (on the rockwork) and lots of white bricks 1x3 were from PAB cups on my visit to a London LEGO Store ladt year. Since then I've made some more Bricklink orders... well a bit more then some actually :) But keep in mind that this was a commissioned build (only the house, not the beach or rockwork) so I had to buy lots of parts specifically for it. I wanted to give it a sense of a house for rental, hence no minifigs. But I guess I could put one or two on the lounge or on one of the balcony's. I really don't know how many, but several thousands, yes :) Thank you sir. It was an honor to share a front page highlight with you ;)

    Point Dume Residence

    Thanks to everyone for the comments and remarks! Glad you like it! This was actually a commissioned build for an architecture company (only the house - the beach, cliff and palm trees I added later for the sake of a better presentation). They gave me a rough sketch of what they wanted and from there I made this model. But the name, specs, etc was all fictional. But like L@go said, Point Dume is a real place located in Malibu Thanks once again everybody!
  17. Many years ago, Earth passed thru a series of climatic and environment events that led to massive changes on the atmosphere and also on the earth surface composition. Lighter-than-air gases, such as helium or hidrogen became predominant and made some landmasses detached from the ground and start free floating on the skies. Most are huge, stunning and majestic, with waterfalls, rivers and entire towns. Others are small with just one or two houses and a few families. Inhabitants had to adapt and to evolve because huge chunks of the Earth surface were now drifting and floating. These islands are usually free-floating and may be directed by the whim of their inhabitants, whilst others may be permanently anchored. Basic resources like food and drinkable water are becoming scarce. Most people have to travel on rudimentary vehicles that float with the help of balloons so they can look for supplies and other necessities. Some even anchor other small floating islands to use them as crops fields and animal farms or just because they want to increase their property. Todaidh Beag is one of those islands. Holds Triroof Manor, home of Godfrey Morgan, his wife, Bella and his 2 sons, Cyrus and Malcumus. Cyrus and Malcumus often leave the island on their balloon boat to find food and supplies. Most of the times they endure bad weather, air pirates and other dangers. But they still have to do the trips to be able to survive and help their family. So guys, this is my latest build and I think this is a new favorite of mine. Even more then my Bluewater Castle as I think this one fits much more my building style. My latest castle builds were drifting to a more vibrant and colorful style that pleases me very much and this one is no exception. It’s not a steampunk build as it does not fit the bill entirely, but I like how it turned out. Anyway, I’m big fan of floating islands literature and stories and it was about time I made a MOC on that theme. I intend, if time and life allows, to build more on these theme. This thing is huge and it was the most challenging build so far. First I made the base with all the landscape and the house, etc. It was build on a very thick and strong base with lots of plates and 16x1 bricks. Then I made an oval technic frame in the shape of an inverted pyramid (I will post a pic or two of the frame later)with a core center of 2x4 bricks were the all landscape, house, etc stands on top. Perfectly balanced :) Inspiration from Life in the sky by Vladimir Kustuchek and the round tower part was from David Hensel latest build. It has lots of small details like the balloon boat, the harpoon to anchor smaller islands and other random stuff. If you want to see lots of details and small things please take a look at all the photos. I took a bunch :) Hope you like it. PS: yes, this is a Medium Azure roof.

    MOC - The Floating Island of Todaidh Beag

    Hey, thanks for the comment. Well I don't have a clear idea of how many parts I used. But a rough estimate would be maybe 25000, I guess. I tend to use lots of small parts that add up a lot, like 1x2 pltes, 1x1 round plates, 1x2 tiles, etc. For instance, i used all my 1x2 tiles on medium azure (300), all my 1x1 round plates in LBG (200), all my lime parts (between plates, tiles, bricks etc I had over 2000 pieces) and all DBG slopes (over 1500). And this is just a small fraction. This time around I made 2 separate bricklink orders just for slopes and azure tiles and plates (around 65$ ). I have a pretty good collection now and got to stop using bricklink Thanks. Nope, no interior I'm afraid I almost always intend to do interiors on m y MOCs but then I just don't have the time/patient/parts to do it.

    Thanks a lot everybody!! Thanks! I too think that my landscapes are probably the most catchy things on my builds. And it always a pleasure to make them for me.
