  1. Lack of original themes

    Anybody can think up a new Lego creation and build it. Imagination is a wonderful thing.
  2. General MOC-Discussion, WIP-Help, and Teaser Thread

    I was thinking about how much fun participating in the Shiptember event is. Would others be interested in building water based craft (don’t have to be any particular size) over the course of a month just to share with one another. It doesn’t have to be a contest, but it would definitely be a motivation to build. I think it would just promote more building and sharing. I am finding that getting that nudge helps me build faster. Anybody else interested? Obviously I can simply build a ship and share it anytime, but simultaneous group building seems like more fun
  3. Thick vs thin base plates

    The 8x16 and 10x20 bricks are the biggest square ish thick baseplates (technically bricks) I can think of. There are also some big quarter round pieces...12x12 and 16x16. I really like these huge bricks. Once they are 3 plates high they qualify as a brick
  4. Your worst lego injuries?

    As a young teenager, I made a giant firecracker and lit it off inside a lego rectangular creation I had made. I tried to run away, but didn't get far enough and had a nice piece of lego scrapnel stuck in the back of my leg. Pulled it out with a little blood but no medical treatment. I think that was the last time I "played" with any legos for almost 30 years.
  5. I just slapped this Charlie Brown together to get us started
  6. Nice Pirate SHIP MOC...horrible photo

    I wish I had taken decent photos after I finished it too. It really was a fun thing to behold. There were like 300 pirates on it and funny little details everywhere. I promise to take good photos next pirate ship I do. I realize all the details are lost in my photo
  7. Nice Pirate SHIP MOC...horrible photo

    I only snapped a couple of horrible photos of this before taking it apart earlier this year, but just stumbled across them and thought I would post. This ship received additional work after the photo and was really fun to build.
  8. [MOC] Frankfurt class patrol cruiser

    It is brick built, isn't it?
  9. What UCS has not been done? (MOC or SET)

    Hailfire Droid tank
  10. Missing Slopes

    tan 45 degree corner slopes ARE available for super cheap if you aren't a purist. If one searched on aliexpress one would find what one needed.
  11. [MOC] Cinderella Castle

    WONDERFUL!!! I have been working on a significantly larger version of this since visiting the Magic Kingdom in March. I wish I had taken your approach to size.
  12. Tiling an oval-shaped building

    There is a new 2x2 macaroni tile piece. You could use 2 of those in conjunction with straight tiles and see how it looks flush mounted. You might be able to raise the tiles up so they overlap that roof(floor) piece for a nice finished look too. You would have to use a couple of the pie slice tiles inside of the macaroni tiles of course i just discovered there is a 4x4 macaroni tile. Didn't realize that even existed. That won't work for you, but good info to know. Thanks for making me look at bl.
  13. Tiling an oval-shaped building

    you could make a nice flat floor by making a semi circle with bricks and curved slopes, studs not on top.
  14. The Hooked Fang MOC Pirate Ship

    Various whale bones and Narwhale horns would have been used IMHO.
  15. EB Tech Help

    I can't see photos in new posts, just url numbers
