    [MOC] Florence Cathedral

    Bravo Giacinto! I've always been your admirer and friend. I supported your project of the Duomo of Florence from the earliest times and it remains your most striking work. Congratulations also to the changes!

    [MOC] The myth of Perseus and Medusa

    Thanks for the comments! Initially I wanted to make the classic spooky trees with pieces the black arms then I opted for the tentacles that gave an even more gloomy appearance. In my order of these tentacles I found other colors available besides black ... or dark tan, dark blue and dark red. So I decided to use them all and they created the right chromatic scene.

    [MOC] The myth of Perseus and Medusa

    Thank you! I will certainly take your advice into consideration, even if I have little free space for a larger and more detailed boat.
  6. When I was a kid I really liked Greek mythology, I read the stories of Greek myths and heroes and I was fascinated to discover the incredible adventures that they faced. Among the most known myths, what has always struck me is the story of Perseus and Medusa. There are various versions of the Perseus myth. But the most acclaimed one is this: "Perseus, son of Zeus, is asked to recover a magical and extremely dangerous object due to a dispute with King Polidette: the head of Medusa. Medusa was one of the three Gorgons, three sisters and monsters who lived in the far west of the world known by the Greeks. She had snakes instead of hair and a terrible power or that of petrifying anyone who looked at her. Perseus must go to the kingdom of the underworld and navigate the river Styx through the ferryman of souls, Charon. To succeed in his arduous undertaking, in this ghostly kingdom he will have to recover magical artifacts from the Graie and then discover the secret place where the temple of Medusa is located. Athena instead gave Perseus a mirror-polished shield telling him that he should look at Medusa only by reflection. Thanks to the shield of Athena, the helmet of Hades which makes invisible and a sickle, Perseus cut off the head of Medusa and placed it in a magic bag. With his head he also succeeded in freeing the beautiful Andromeda, his future bride, saving her from a terrible and huge sea monster freed by Poseidon. Still today you can admire the magnificent bronze sculpture of Perseus in the Signoria square in Florence (Italy)". With this modest work I have tried to recreate the main scene, with the Styx river and the ferryman Charon, the spooky environment and of course Perseus about to cut off the head of Medusa as he left his temple. The moc is embellished with a thread of microled hidden between the bricks to give light in this infernal place. The construction took me a month. The moc is made with about 3,900 pieces and will be presented for the first time at the MEI in Verona 2020 (Italy). Good viewing of the photos Greetings from Sandro Flickr Gallery:
  7. It's my fault. For lack of time I write a little about Eurobricks but know that I often follow the various sections of the forum! I find it one of the most interesting ever and always get new ideas! Thank you!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Whatever it is, I'd love to use one of these colors in large quantities: 1) sand red (!!!) 2) bright light yellow (cool yellow) They are two colors with little diffusion (above all the first one!) and that personally would allow me to make new very interesting moc.
  9. Yesterday my Winter Chalet project reached 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas! It is an important goal for me, a dream that has come true! I want to thank all the friends and AFOL supporters of the project. Without you I would never have succeeded. Now I just have to wait to see the results of the Review ... Thank you all!

    [MOC] Winter Chalet.. Help me!

    In a distant December 2013 I presented here on EuroBricks a moc to which I am particularly attached: the Winter Chalet! This building took part like many others in my winter village which year after year became an ever larger diorama. Given the interest I decided to include (several years later) the Winter Chalet on LEGO Ideas and immediately had a great success! I didn't think I would get that high on the score score. I have never done too much publicity on this project but now there are less than 2000 votes to reach the summit and I need you! Even if maybe it will never become a LEGO set I would love to get up there ... If you haven't seen or known it yet, go and see my video that I uploaded to YouTube: If you like this project, help me support it! Let your friends know about it, help me reach 10,000 votes. Thank you so much for your support! Sandro

    [MOC] Bavarian Town

    Among the many ideas written in my "To do list" this time the project of a town in Bavaria prevailed, a well-known geographical area of Germany that I visited only during my photographic journey in the Black Forest several years ago. The inspiration base is the famous city of Rothenburg; as always I wanted to take inspiration but then re-inventing in my own way. This moc has required me a job of precision above all for the part of the road base. I wanted to create a pedestrian street with curves, inclinations and slopes. I built 6 buildings in all: two houses, a bakery, a toy store, a bar / brewery with the little square, the clock tower. For the bakery and the bar / brewery I also decided to make the furnishings that can be seen well because I left the usual sectioned walls to observe the interior of the houses. Speaking of numbers, the town has required me 6 months of work, based on 6 bases of 32 and is composed of about 13,700 pieces (of which 990 tiles are 1x2 LBG). There are also 35 minifigs and, as usual in every my moc, some quite rare pieces. It will be presented for the first time in two days in Lecco 2019 (Italy).
