  1. 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.

  2. 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.
  4. 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! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/849c03ee-e2ae-41d5-9450-6efa53808340

    [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! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/849c03ee-e2ae-41d5-9450-6efa53808340 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).

    Wonderful work, great colors and details! Your modular buildings are always more beautiful, congratulations! greetings from Sandro :-)
  9. I want to sincerely thank all the friends and supporters of this moc. I am very fond of this work and I hope that it will continue to collect new votes because I would like so much to realize the dream of getting to the end of the voting reaching 10,000! If you really like it and want to continue supporting this project, spread the word among the people you know. Thank you all!

  10. 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!

    [MOC] Post Office & Art School

    Bravissimo Giacinto! another modular very impressive, good colour and techniques!
  16. 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 - Medieval Windmill

    Thanks to all those who wanted to leave a comment! I had to build this moc quickly but I'm glad I did it and I had a lot of fun. During the Verona fair (MEI 2018 Italy) it was a great success!

    [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!
