  1. FIAT 500 F

    Thanks for the kind words. :) I have to admit at the current time the car has no working steering as there's only about 1mm space between the front fenders and the wheels on either side. We were able to make it look like it's steerable because clipping is allowed in Blender. :P The car's design will definitely evolve over time and I'll make sure to take your suggestions into consideration. :)

    Hello and thanks a lot for checking out our latest collaboration! This project features a highly detailed replica of the iconic 1968 Fiat 500 F! Produced from 1957 to 1975 the Cinquecento is considered one of the first real city cars. Read more here. Consisting of 1157 pieces (all add-ons included) this model would be the ultimate for any fan of the Italian legend and definitely a great addition to any Lego collection. The major features are: -detailed exterior with custom prints such as the fiat logo and several prints on the back end -openable hood, trunk and doors -sun-roof (closed and opened) -removable luggage-rack on the back end -suitcase with a bottle and a glass inside -detailed trunk with spare wheel, fuel tank, car jack and a toolbox -engine compartment with a detailed 500cc straight twin engine -detailed interior with movable seats, pedals, handbrake as well as custom prints for the dashboard and the speedometer As mentioned above the proposal for the set includes two sun-roofs which can be interchanged to have the roof either opened or closed. Furthermore, it also includes a removable luggage rack with a suitcase. Now enjoy this beautiful video and make sure to share it! So what are you waiting for? Head over to Lego Ideas and hit the support button to make this become a Lego set! This model was built in Mecabricks and rendered using Blender. Special thanks to zanna for making the awesome pictures and the video! It doesn't only need a good model to make a great project but also a cool way of presenting it. Make sure to check out his Flickr account for more amazing images! Thanks for checking out our post. Make sure to support, comment and share!
  6. Very cool idea! :) However I have a few questions: Are you allowed to compete as a team of two people? And finally why exactly can we only use bricks that are available in the right colour in real life?
  7. The De Havilland DHC-2 often called Beaver is probably the most famous and beloved bush plane ever built. With its distinct look, flight characteristics and sound it's instantly recognizable. It was produced from 1947 to 1967 by De Havilland Canada. Despite being out of production for many years now a lot of planes are still in use. If you want to find out more about the real plane click here. With the help of gabriele.zannotti I built the DHC-2 out of Lego. Features: True to original plane with details such as exhaust, floats, decorated cockpit, nice looking and fresh colour scheme, window prints on the fuselage, radial engine print, antennas and lights on the wings Retractable landing gear that folds into the floats Accessories namely first aid kit, a mail package, a letter ,a fuel canister, a safety buoy and a rope to tie up the plane A small piece of land with a wooden dock, a fir tree and an air sock 2 minifigures, a pilot and a hermit who lives in the wilderness with his dog So what are you waiting for? Support this project on Lego Ideas and with some luck you can soon take your plane and deliver the hermit's mail into the wilderness! This model was built in mecabricks and rendered using blender. Special thanks to gabriele.zannotti for making the awesome pictures! It doesn't only need a good model to make a great project but also a cool way of presenting it.

  8. 'My name is Sherlock Holmes. It is my business to know what other people don't know.' -The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle Hello and thank you very much for checking out this post! Make sure to support our latest project on Lego Ideas! This project depicts the iconic entrance of Baker Street 221B as well as a Hansom cab with driver and three minifigs. A victorian police constable, Homes' assistant John Hamish Watson with his revolver and the master himself Sherlock Homes with his iconic deerstalker hat and a magnifying glass. This project is not based on any Sherlock Holmes movie or TV series but the original stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and with less than 400 bricks it would make a fantastic Lego Ideas set. Now it's up to you. I've you're a Sherlock Holmes fan make sure to hit the support button and spread the word. Also make sure to leave a comment if you have any suggestions. Thanks a lot to my fellow collaborator gabriele.zannotti for making the beautiful pictures of the model. On flickr you can have a look at his other masterpieces! Thank you for your attention.

  9. Airbus A380 Micro Model The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner manufactured by European aircraft company Airbus. It is the world's largest passenger airliner, and the airports at which it operates have upgraded facilities to accommodate it. It was initially named Airbus A3XX and designed to challenge Boeing's monopoly in the large-aircraft market. The A380 made its first flight on 27 April 2005 and entered commercial service in October 2007 with Singapore Airlines. -Wikipedia Now I present to you the biggest passenger plane out of Lego! I tried to include as much details as possible at this small scale and I must say I'm quite pleased with the result. The project features: Detailed plane Decals Removable landing gear Display stand in various colors It's built out of 365 bricks which seems quite reasonable for a Lego Ideas set. Here're some more pics: Thanks a lot to Anduin1710 who made the beautiful renders. Make sure to check out his projects. Especially if you're a LotR or Hobbit fan! Do you like my MOC? Please consider supporting over at Lego Ideas to make it become a real set! Your help is greatly appreciated!

  13. Misprints and Other LEGO Production Oddities

    In my 15 years of building with Lego I never had a missing piece. The only oddity was a technic piece from the Unimog which was a little bit mis-molded but still useable. :)
