    Inspirational Modular and Non-Modular Building MOCs

    The cathedral won't be able to fit in his attic anymore when he has finished the north tower. The tower of Antwerp cathedral is 123 m high, which means 240 cm at this scale.

    Inspirational Modular and Non-Modular Building MOCs

    A couple of weeks ago I cycled by this house in Heiloo, Holland and immediately thought it resembled the formementioned house. Funny how reality imitates fantasy

    LOWLUG train layout at LEGOWorld Utrecht

    Not all trains in the background are our mocs (oocs ), by the way. Some are mocs that you can buy as a set in the Netherlands, and some are sets like the 4511 visible.

    MOC - The church of Saint Leonore

    I updated the spire of the church, not so much because I was dissatisfied with the old one, but because I wanted to give the church a new look voor Legoworld 2017 in Utrecht: My city / train layout as part of the Lowlug Train Club layout at Legoworld Utrecht by ¢НЯ15Т1ΑАИ Ð€ ЯОΟ, on Flickr
  6. My car is 59,5 studs long over the buffers. Can I round it up to 60 or am I not allowed to enter it?
  7. I really like this tram. I live in Arnhem, so I see this model tram once in a while while visiting the Openluchtmuseum (although the 274 Arnhem is a little bit blander in colour than the 265 you made in Lego). I don't think it is motorised, is it?
  8. I will also be there, bringing with me a part of the LOWLUG Train Club Layout that will connect to UrbanErwin's part. For an Afol there is enough to see in the fanzone, I think, and for the afols themselves is is still very much ab afol event, with an afol evening on saturday and dinners together in the evening. But it is so large (almost 100.000 visitors) that the afol part is obscured by all the playground/fairground activities for children.

    Creating a 'track-less' layout

    Is this what you mean? This with the existing track pieces and a lot of snotted slopes.

    I'm afraid all I've left of this MOC are the pictures...

    Best years of Lego sets Discussion

    The years 1977-1986 were of course the best years. The introduction of Technic and the minifigure and new themes like space and castle opened so many new possibilities for playing that is is hard to see which other era could be better. Only the years from 1955 on, when the System of play was introduced, can be compared.

    MOC Modulars Inspired by real buildings

    My three most recent buildings next to each other at the Lowlug meeting last week: The one on the left is modular standard but completely made up. The one one the right side is modular standard and modeled after this building in Dordrecht, Holland. The middle one is not completely modular standard, although with a width of 48 studs it would fit in. But it's also much deeper than a modular, and doesn't come with a sidewalk. It is modeled after this building in Vianen, Holland.

    MOC Museum of Civilization

    Isn't the Tower Bridge a set that just screams for moccing? The first 10214 I bought I never even built, I immediately used all those really useful bricks for my mocs.

    [MOC] Modular Book Shop

    Lovely house. And Amsterdam is the only city/town I know where one can find black houses, so it is instantly recognisable.
  15. It is not a trademark. TLC likes to present it as a trademark, but the brick design was ruled out as a trademark in court.
