    [MOC] Modular Clock Tower Square

  3. Thank you very much!
  4. Winter Village Chalet (Restaurant and bedrooms) This is my second great moc for my new Winter Village 2014. A MOC that are also very fond of because it took me a remarkable job. Unlike the Farm, which could have an architectural orientation of American type, this chalet is very European indeed very Italian! The building is a little bit smaller than the farm but has a large number of small items, and then brings the piece count to about 2600. The chalet is structured with a restaurant on the ground floor which is accessed from the main doorway and offers its customers the cozy bedrooms upstairs which is accessed by a wooden staircase on the front. The restaurant has tables set up with tablecloths, plates, glasses and candles to create the right atmosphere. We also find the classic crackling fireplace, a Christmas tree, and on the right side there is a corner with little bar, cash, coffee maker and a small sink. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, one single, one double bed and two twin beds in the attic. On the same floor I made a small bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. I tried to make the building in a rustic stone walls wooden beams between a floor and the other, a sloping roof and wooden floors with double color in the bedroom and more stone tile floor in the restaurant. The roof is only supported, but thanks to a precise interplay of connections it allows good stability and at the same time a high speed of removal in order to better observe the interior of the bedrooms and the bathroom. The interior upstairs is also removable to be able to see more easily the restaurant. To change a little bit the predominant color that could be the gray of the stone I decided to make the walls of the central part of the Chalet with a valuable but very rustic sand-green Thank you all for watching and for your comments.

  6. As we are close to Christmas, I wanted to present some photos of my Diorama Winter Village in the full 2018 version, never presented before. This landscape completed in 2016 is the result of 5 years of work. Each building from the smallest to the largest has been built with a continuous search for quality and study in the details of the interior furnishings. The diorama currently consists of 42 bases of 32x32 studs with 300 minifigs and over 62,000 pieces. I was fortunate to have been called to exhibit my complete work at the "Palacio de Gaviria" art museum, Madrid, Spain for a period of 3 months from 10 December 2018 to 24 February 2019. On my Flickr profile you can see some other photos as a whole and in the other Albums you can see the details of each individual building that make up the village. Thank you all for your comments and for the vision of my project! Greetings from Sandro Flickr Gallery: https://www.flickr.com/photos/sdrnet/albums/72157676542427648

    MOC - Winter Pub & Cafè

    Hello everyone, today I want to present my last building constructed: The Winter Pub & Cafe. It is a new building that will be part of my new diorama Winter Village 2015 that will be presented for the first time at the fair in Lecco 1 and 2 August. I wanted to put a lot of internal details even if the interior space was very small. The interior is very comfortable as it should be in a pub. There is the bar, the coffee maker, the tapster pumping beer directly from bins placed in the foreground. There are some strange customers sitting at the tables, bottles and glasses, paintings, lamps, the crackling, the clock, a carpet. A staircase leads upstairs where there is a small bedroom that serves the manager when he wants to relax after a hard day's work. The interior of the building are clearly visible, but to make them even more visible the entire roof is detachable dividing into three parts. The insignia front was made with photoshop, printed in color and then glued. I hope you like it! See you next time Sandro More images: The complete gallery on Flickr: https://www.flickr.c...157654202144468

    [MOC] Post Office & Art School

    Bravissimo Giacinto! another modular very impressive, good colour and techniques!
  12. Hello everyone! After a constructive stop of a couple of months at the beginning of the year I decided to try my hand at building a medieval mill. I like to think of this mill set in the Middle Ages, inhabited by a simple family that lived in an era where today's technology did not exist yet, without cell phones, computers and the Internet. Only a stone and wood house built with the toil of the hands and a life led to produce flour for bread and to grow vegetables and products of the earth. All surrounded by a luxuriant nature without the traffic and the polluted air of today. A life that is certainly very difficult but much simpler and built on basic concepts like family, land and food. The construction of this moc took a couple of months and made up of about 5,200 pieces and it took two months of construction. The blades of the mill are powered by a Medium Lego motor and can be turned over with a button on the back of the house. Moc presented for the first time at the MEI in Verona 2018 (Italy).

    [MOC] Tuscany cottage

    Hi everyone, today I present a MOC that I just realized recently for a specific occasion: the Lego Event in Florence (Brick in Florence Festival 2017). Tuscany landscapes have always been in my heart, in the last 15 years I have traveled several times in spring and summer in a specific area of Tuscany that is the "Crete Senesi". In this geographical area that starts from the south of Siena to the town of Pienza there are landscapes formed by sinuous hills with cottages and cypresses. For years I have been photographing these areas and I could not miss creating a MOC dedicated to this land. As an inspiration I used a picture of mine that you can see here: http://www.unafotoalgiorno.it/portfolio/visgallery.php?cat=paesaggi&id=11838 Between design and construction it took only one month, I think it's one of the MOCs I've made faster in my story than AFOL! I had little time but the ideas clear enough of what I wanted to accomplish. With just 4 Bricklink orders made all the same day, I did nothing but wait for them to come home and then all the construction took place within a couple of weeks (in time scraps). It is a very simple moc, it is not composed of special techniques. I still had a lot of fun building it because I partly resumed my memories of photographic travels I did in the past. flickr gallery: https://www.flickr.com/photos/sdrnet/albums/72157690184763535 Hope you like it and if you have questions I am available! Bye, Sandro

    [MOC] Tuscany cottage

    I do not know what you know about Tuscany, but in Tuscany the hills are covered with sunflowers. Lavender is certainly more typical of Provence, France. This creation is an almost real reproduction of a piece of Tuscan landscape. Thank you for vision!

    MOC: Weekend at the Sea

    Here is my new MOC. After doing for 5 years with the winter season I wanted something summer! On the first day of Spring, however, this moc came to my mind. I imagined drinking a good coffee sitting at the coffee table at a seaside bar. So I decided to design this moc very different from my usual themes but just as fun to build. The moc is built on four 32x32 bases. As an inspiration I chose the Riviera Ligure where I occasionally make a turn, but all that was invented without relying on real scenes. The four colorful buildings you see in the background are (starting from the left): a bar, a souvenir shop, a grocery store, a florist. At first I wanted to do only the part of the facade and then I decided to make simple interior embellishments (as always) from the back. The cobblestone part is a classic walk through the seaside villages with benches, lanterns, flower beds ... The beach is still not crowded because I imagined a pre-summer period in which there are still few people around. The entire moc was built in 3 months (in time scraps) employing about 5,500 pieces. Hope you like it. Will be presented live in a few days in Italy - Lecco 2017. Hello everyone! Very welcome comments!

    MOC: Modular Space Centre

    Hello everyone! Today I have the great pleasure to introduce this new MOC. It marks my final transition to new themes beyond the Winter Village that kept me engaged for 5 years. For some time I thought of building a modular building but at the same time about a year ago are back thoughts about my past, from my first time playing with LEGO, and were rekindled in me the memories of the Classic Space 80s. The idea came by itself... build something that united the two themes: a modular classic space! The modular is divided into 3 levels, but is arranged to be possibly raised "potentially" of other planes. The ground floor consists of a garage space of ground transportation and a sort of workshop space where they can build models of spaceships and repair vehicles and robots. The first floor is composed in part of a laboratory, beds for the rest of the crew and a special bed in order to make the analysis and hibernations subjects. In the central part of the hall there is a table for meeting space and also the panels with some bodies of hibernating aliens. The top floor consists of the space control center with computers, radar and a rocket for space exploration. It 's also an airstrip with a ship in the neo classic space style. The modular is very playable, first of all because it has three means and then have various other movements operated with levers technic. It has an elevator that goes from floor to floor with a system already seen in various moc (with gears) by operating a hand lever. There is also the possibility of including a PF motor with battery compartment, but by the time I liked to leave everything manually. Also in the ground floor two red levers allow you to open the main door (opening side-scrolling) and the two gates (simultaneous opening front / rear tilting) of the space garage. Aloft a third lever allows you to run the big radar. A further radar satellite can be manually rotated with the minifigs on board. I think that would really like children and not only! The modular is composed of about 3200 pieces and 10 minifigs (9 classic space and one child). I hope that this new moc you like it, I enjoyed it a lot to build it and I hope you will also appreciate my effort to begin the production of moc of new themes!

    MOC: Modular Space Centre

    On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the LEGO Modular buildings I wanted to honor my first modular with new pictures imprinted with the tenth anniversary of the LEGO Modular Building Series logo to be distributed to the LUGs. I also wanted to support the modular inside a mini-diorama formed by the new Assembly Square 10255 + my favorite 10243 Parisian Restaurant. So I could prove to many of you that despite being a completely crazy modular I do not mind the end result! Surely many of you continue to be skeptical about this choice, but it does nothing ... certainly it was an experiment to make up a maximum of imagination! There are 12 new photos on Flickr ... enjoy! https://www.flickr.com/photos/sdrnet/albums/72157676146045750
