    Help indentifing

    Hello! Most parts are from set 21205: Battel Towers. It looks like it had been manually expanded with more elements. Cheers, Chris

    15 years of Brickville (my Lego city)

    Hello! The shelf behind your town layout on the fourth image looks still pretty empty. With a layout that large I would have guessed it's filled up with brick boxes. Cheers, Chris

    [MOC] Racer 42

    Hello there! A real combination of strength and endurance! I like the two-seated cockpit. And you managed to make the color scheme of yellow/red looking good (which is one of the most difficult combinations in my eyes). Cheers, Chris

    Along the coral road

    Hello! That's a very harmonic look of a foreign planets plant life! It's always difficult to design shapes and colours in your mind to give it the right space touch. You did perfectly fine here! Cheers, Chris

    [MOC] boat spaceship

    Hello! A very original and unconventional part use! I like it when this works and turns out really well. In particular, it's quite smooth how the large golden weapon pieces slide between the fins of the boat hull. Cheers, Chris

    [MOC] Space Champions - Xenon X2-Craft

    Hello! I like that the classic space spirit is kept alive here while we are still waiting for a new proper space theme. Good job! Cheers, Chris

    Billy Goat's Steamboat

    Hello! What a lovely boat! It immediately brings you back to your Fabuland memories. Very clever construction of Fabuland-styled shapes and forms! Cheers, Chris
  8. Hello again, and thank you for your comments! Of course instructions are available as usually. We're just waiting until the BrickShelf gallery with the instructions has been moderared... Meanwhile you can drop me a personal message and I will send you a file with the instructions. Cheers, Chris
  9. Hello everybody! It's been a while since my last creative input here, my apologies. Thus I am very happy to share something with you again. Besides mini model building, I am also a great fan of alternate building with the 3in1 Creator sets. These often come with a great parts variety and are a great source of inspiration. I very much like building alternate models with the whole parts of these sets to go beyond the official builing proposals, but not so this time! Today I would like to show you what can be done with the leftover pieces once you built one of the official building proposals. The set 31066 Space Shuttle Explorer was released in the year 2017 and unfortunately already disappeared from the market. However it is still widely available via online shopping. The set contains 274 pieces plus 12 extra parts, and has instructions for 3 main models: Space Shuttle (no leftover pieces) Surface Station (97 leftover pieces) 6-wheeled Rover (127 leftover pieces) Looking at the big number of leftover pieces, a new idea comes to mind: Additional models from the leftover pieces instead of new alternate models! The idea was to create an entire small space theme becasue there was none in the year 2017. Of course this entire project seems meaningless with regards towards the new official city space theme released in the new catalogue 2019. But I will share the general idea with you anyway. Image 1: Primary model - Space shuttle, no leftovers. Image 2: Secondary Model - Surface Station, 97 leftover pices! Image 3: Space Hopper built from the leftover pieces of the official surface station model. Image 4: Space Hopper and Surface Station. Image 5: Secondary Model - 6-wheeled Rover, 127 leftover pices! Image 6: Communications Antenna built from the leftover pieces of the official Rover model. Image 7: Communications Antenna and Rover. Image 8: The complete space theme consisting of 3x set 31066. So when you build a different model besides the primary model, have a look at the leftover pieces, there's lots of potential in them! Have a good time and happy building! ~ Chris
  10. Hello again, and thank you very much fopr the kind comments! This shows me my intention was successful. That's exactly my mission with these creator alternatives. To build the unexpected out of it. Cheers, ~ Christopher

    MINI Y-Wing Starfighter

    Hello everybody! It's been a while since my last Star Wars mini model has been posted here, thus I think it's time that we move along. Today I'd like to share an Y-Wing Starfighter with you. Due to the complicated engine fuselage, this is a particular hard to build model with increasing difficulty the smaller you get by maintaining all details. I hope you will enjoy the following images. See you soon with more new mini models! Cheers, Christopher

    (SK MOC) Beluga Whales

    Hello! Very realistic modeling of those whales! What impresses me most is the motion you can see in the tail and fin. It was very clever to build two of them, each of them exactly in the turning point of forward propelling position of tail and fin. This way you can really "see" them swimming forwards. Cheers, Christopher

    MOC: Mini Modular #6

    Hello there! They're all looking fantastic! As a fellow micro builder I always appreciate to discover new building tricks and techniques! Well done! Christopher
  14. Hello everybody! Sometimes the question is raised why there is no Star Trek™ LEGO®. I would like to present a possibility to you how you can go to your local toy store, buy an official set, but go home with a Star Trek model, instead. This works out in form of an additonal alternate model of Creator Set 31006 - Highway Speedster. It's a model from this year, so you will have no difficulties aquiring this one. It consists of 286 pieces. Building instructions can be downloaded of course! When building alternatives I usually have two rules in my mind. - Don't let it look too much of a patchwork - Use as many pieces as possible The result this time was a Starship Enterprise model with clear deisgn lines, and an appropriate stand. Unfortunately it only uses about half of the pieces available. Sometimes that happens but usually the two official alternatives to the main model also use much lesser pieces. So here we go! Building instructions can be donwloaded directly from my homepage: http://st.deckdesigns.de Thanks for your time and interest! Yours Chris.
