  1. Thanks, glad you like it!
  2. I am a huge fan of the artwork from the card game Magic: The Gathering. One piece that inspired me in particular was this panoramic painting by Mark Tedin for the cards Urza's Mine, Urza's Power Plant, Urza's Tower and Karn Liberated. I decided to build a LEGO model based on the art for Urza's Tower. Since the above image was my only reference I had to to some improvising, especially for the backside of the tower, but I am really happy with how the model turned out. Here's a side-by-side comparison: Here is a picture from the backside and an interior view: Another small challenge during the design of the model was the color choice. I knew I wanted to use medium nougat as the main color for the build, which is a bit limited in regards to parts availability, but in the end it all worked out. If you have any input or suggestions I would be happy to hear your thoughts!
  3. Thank you for the kind words! I love building at this scale. The models only take up half as much space as if they were built in minifig scale, but it still lets me include a reasonable amount of detail as well as some interior.
  4. I have added a new model to my collection of MOCs from The Legend of Zelda video game series. After the Temple of Time from Ocarina of Time (left) and the Clock Tower from Majora's Mask (middle) I have now built the Tower of the Gods from The Wind Waker (right): I started designing this model about two years ago (using Studio), but never got around to finishing it. So I decided to make some good use of all the free time I had during lockdowns and over the Christmas holidays to finally get this project done. I am pretty happy with how it turned out and it's nice to finally be able to put it into my shelf. Here are some more pictures: The top of the tower houses the boss room where Link has to defeat Gohdan: Another look at the interior: The tower splits into three sections and one of the floors can be taken out in order to access the room below: If you are interested in my next projects, here is my Flickr account. If you have any feedback or suggestions, I would be glad to hear your thoughts!

    [REVIEW] 75301 Luke Skywalker's X-Wing Fighter

    I am mostly excited for the new pieces in this set for custom building. Since I have not been able to find this information anywhere else yet, can you tell me how many of the 1×1 brick with a Technic axle hole are included in the set?
  6. I'm a huge fan of The Legend of ZELDA. After the Temple of Time from Ocarina ot Time (see my last post) i also built the Clock Tower from Majora's Mask. To stay as true to the game as possible i included two functions: The clock is connected to the gears on the side as well as the tip of the tower with a mechanism that can be activated by turning a knob in the back of the tower to make the clock "tick". You can find a video demonstration here (unfortunately I couldn't figure out a way to embed it properly). The clock can be lifted up and tipped over for the final showdown on top of the tower against horror kid - see video here. As an additional tiny detail I included the owl statue next to the tower that functions as a save point/warp point in the game. My next project will be the Tower of the Gods from The Wind Waker. If you are interested in how it will turn out, you can follow me on Flickr.
  7. Thank you for the kind words - glad you like it! The only thing that bugs me a bit is that the interior is so dark because it does not let much light in. I was playing with the idea of putting some LEDs in there somewhere, but that's something I have never tried before.

    [MOC] IT - Pennywise the Dancing Clown(2019)

    I love how you managed to get the facial expression to look so perfect! What technique have you used for the eyes? Is there actually some black insid the yellow parts?
  9. Hi, this is my micro scale version of the Temple of Time from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I've been working on the design on and off for probably more than a year using LDD and Studio until i finally ordered the pieces from Bricklink to actually build it. This is what the temple looks like in the game: The Lego model opens in the front and in the back to reveal the interior including the three Spiritual Stones, the Door of Time and of course the Master Sword: I am currently also building the Clock Tower from Majora's Mask (including moving clock faces and the transformation function) and working on the design for the Tower of the Gods from Wind Waker. I will share pictures of those as soon as they are built! Flickr PS: I wasn't sure which forum to post this in. If it would better fit somewhere else please let me know - thanks :)

    Steampunk Millenium Falcon

    Really amazing! I love that your creation has an interior as opposed to the UCS falcon. Also great job on the steampunk style!

    [MOC] Goblin Pirates (79010 Alt Build)

    Looks awesome! I love this idea of alternate builds for existing Lego sets. Is there a place where I can find more creations like this? For example I have already seen someone create an amazing Ent from the Ewok village set. I would love to see some more creations that only use parts from any other set out there. Can someone point me in the right direction of where to look?

    What are you listening to?

    Mostly Rock and Metal for me. And I have a thing for medieval music and especially Folk Rock/Metal. I also enjoy some other cross overs, like with music from video games, movies or TV shows. There's some very interesting things out there in the musical world :D
