    Inspirational Modular and Non-Modular Building MOCs

    Wow! This builder seems to have found an ideal scale, big enough to make things shine, but small enough to be able to work in "modules" and have that Manhattan vibe to the layout.

    [MOC] House in Vilnius

    A complete model. You've faithfully recreated this Lithuanian little beauty! A thing I noticed (don't know if intentional) is the fact the tower over to the left feels slimmer, more striking, more "juvenile" than the real one. I love it, and the topping is very beautiful.

    [MOC] A Summer In Tuscany

    Thanks @Ogist! Italian piazzas and vias are very beautiful indeed. The perfect balance between shameless buildings and a heck of a mess covering them. Very much glad you like the atmosphere, what would you say is your favourite part about them? I'll tell you mine, the yellow building's rooftop, the feathers represent prison iron bars and the shallow roof, a prisoner

    [MOC] A Summer In Tuscany

    First off, million thanks! I'm genuninely glad you like my work! I've mentioned this sometimes, my style of building is chaotic, I don't look whether a piece does or doesn't exist in the colour I want it to be in my models, as they're digital. Therefore, I don't make instructions becuse they would highlight pieces which may not exist currenly . But, A Summer In Tuscany is out of my models one of the most feasible to build (which has the least amount of part mix-matches), so just send me a Personal Message here on Eurobricks with your mail and I can send the LDD file.

    Congrats for both this article (the blog is really cool and the writer has been good enough to post some of my MOCs, as well as other EBs) and the frontpage! Very much deserved!

    Inspirational Modular and Non-Modular Building MOCs

    I followed that beast's progress on Reddit. I really like the fact that even this being a huge build, it feels daring like an experiment done in LDD. Sometimes with bigger builds, that daringness is set aside for the hugeness of the build to shine on its own. Here it's both daring and huge which is really outstanding

    How to Design a Modular or a Non-Modular Building?

    Just remebered the article I wrote for HispaBrick, might be adequate for this topic. It's not per say 100% a tutorial, but it exemplifies my way of building very well. It's here, if you're interested.

    MOC: The Brixton Hotel

    Kneel to the master! Your interiors always tend be be unique, but nevertheless have a cozy factor to them. For this, the first things which caught my attention were the 2x2 round plates on the top of the main wall and the round design on the flooring. Both of these look splendid. Then some finer details I saw later, like the bottom of the turntables as the lift's round window, the lift doors using fences or the "zebra" pattern right before it are beautiful and make this an overall appealing, well executed and very clean desing. I love it!

    How to Design a Modular or a Non-Modular Building?

    Huh, interesting @peedeejay. I've both begun a model from the ground floor and from the roof, but never from the mid levels. For me, the overall effect is most important, so I center most of my efforts making the roofs sparkle. Once I've done that (or have it certain in my mind it can be done), then I do the rest.

    Very nice! It sometimes happens to me that renders make buildings "fat". What in a render looks like big enough, then in real bricks (or the tests I do in Architecture Studio) look tiny in comparison. The dark red building for me appears skinnier than in the rendering, which it not entierly a bad thing! Looking foward to the overall picture of your layout

    I entered EB and saw you'd posted a new MOC. I wanted to hold on a little bit, so meanwhile I entered @LegoModularFan's inspiration topic. But heck, I saw a comment there with the newer signature. At first glance it looks properly amazing. Two buildings, well balanced in terms of colours and shaping (the left one's roof shape is just blindingly pretty!), nice details overall, and my favourite... an alleyway! I know a 32x32 is indeed a small modular that's hard to make stand out and not looked to cramped. You've achieved a stylish pair of buildings and a pretty great atmosphere surrounding the build. I think your pub was a huge step up form the convinience store, and this is another step forward in the right direction, although QB's Pub overshadows it a lot (this is perfect size, the pub was a little bit too big to my liking ). The spaces are well resolved overall. If you allow me just a single little criticism, the Post Office's ground floor exterior details are a bit bland to my liking. Maybe it's done on purpose so it doesn't overshadow the rest of the build. Nevermind, a great modular.

    Creator Expert Car 2018 Speculation

    I've wanted an 80s McLaren or Williams for a very long time, but that involves stickering it with tobacco companies' logos, a move I seriously doubt Lego would make. As for some other racing cars I'd love, the Mazda 787B is a clear favourite, but I doubt there's much love for it for the non-hardcore fans. As a non-racing car a good DB5 with all sorts of gadgets might be fun or a really old 1910-20 car, an Alfa or a Mercedes.

    MOC: Modular Bookstore

    Good shaping, good colouring and especially, amazing storefront. I love first floors which are built solely out of a single colour, to make shapes shine somewhere in the build, instead of colours. Yours in black goes straight to one of my favourites. On the rooftop, the effect created by the "t" Technic pieces is very subtle and pleasing to the eye. The chimenys are always a welcomed touch. I like it very much!
