    Thanks :)

    [MOC] Medieval Tavern

    Ok, seems like I haven't thought enough while designing the tavern. Actually I first wanted to place the cothesline behind the building. That was when I built in the ladder. Later I changed the location for the clothesline but forgot about the uncomfortable way upstairs :D But, what should I say, the middle ages were rough ;) @frumpy @Padlix Thank you both :)

    @Sam SinisterI see what you mean. Actually the initial thought was to build the stairs this way to save bricks, otherwise I would have had problems in other parts of the building. Any surrounding walls, roof or arches would have used too many bricks.

    [MOC] Medieval Tavern

    Thank you all a lot, I'm glad you like it :) @AanchirThanks a lot. I think you're absolutely right. The toilet would be better located outside behind the tavern. Actually, as I designed the wooden extension on the first floor, I didn't know what it would be used for. Then, later, I had the idea to implement a toilet, and I thought it would be funny to build it into the extension especially because it would empty not just directly under any window, but even under the kitchen window ;) And regarding the burning oil lamp in the attic, this is for sure absolutely careless. But without the flame nobody would have recognized that this shall be a lamp ;)

    [MOC] Medieval Tavern

    This is my new moc of a medieval tavern with inn. It was created to be presented together with the 21325 LEGO Medieval Blacksmith. In order to stay as close as possible to the blacksmith's style, I had to borrow some of the building techniques and optical elements that were used in the blacksmith, especially in the roof area. In general the Medieval Tavern moc nevertheless is a completely independent construction. On the ground floor there is the tavern and a kitchen with an open cooking area. In the kitchen, mostly vegetarian food is prepared, since meat was a luxury item in the Middle Ages - contrary to what is often shown. I couldn't help putting some meat on the table, since these clichés simply must not be missing in a medieval tavern. In return, I kept the lighting as close as possible to reality and didn't use candles, but tried to build oil lamps. There are two guest bedrooms on the first floor. I also tried to keep them simple and, in my opinion, even deviated from reality upwards. In fact, for the mostly not affluent guests, there were only straw beds rather than real beds. A straw bed can be found in the attic, in addition to some stuff, which could be stored there, and a clothesline plus laundry basket. The matching wash tub is down behind the building. In the back corner of the attic a giant spider has moved in. There it guards a small treasure, which is located behind the chimney. Of course I have again created some building instructions for the moc, which you can find here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-72838/ More pictures can be found following the link to rebrickable or on flickr: This way Medieval Tavern by Versteinert, auf Flickr Medieval Tavern by Versteinert, auf Flickr Medieval Tavern by Versteinert, auf Flickr

    LEGO IDEAS Vintage car contest, failed submission.

    @DazzzyFirst of all, I don't think that I'm more talented as you are. I only had more luck in the contest ;) You found the right word to describe your car. It is charming. And yes, it is more charming than the wider version, maybe because of it's small size. Regarding my own classic car: This isn't a secret ;) I own this one for about 15 years now and discussed it quite intensively in a classic cars forums in the past as well (if you should ever search for a german speaking classic car forum, then try out forum.hecktrieb.de ;) ). It's a 1972 Ford Taunus Coupé. Stylistic this hasn't much in common with 50s US cars, but of course my interests also reach out to these older american cars.

    @jimimThen you should hurry up. It'll for sure not last long till the next great sets show up ;) @4beeNice to hear. Are they settled next to each other? Can you easily see their relationship?

    [MOC] Santa is on its way

    This was the original name of the moc that the 40448 vintage car is based on. Or do you mean where the word Aedelsten came from? This is a creation of mine. I took the danish (ædelsten) and swedish (ädelsten) word for gemstone and made it a bit more writable ;) I chose gemstone as name to underline the deluxe classification of the car.

    [MOC] Classic Police Car

    Shame on me. I never answered on this thread. I'm really sorry :( Thank you all very much. I'm glad you like the car. @street87I guess the mudguards don't exist in dark blue. If you have any pics of the Aedelsten with the swords, I would like to see them. That could really look great @JintaiZI have to disappoint you. The steering is fake. The wheels are stuck in this position and I even had to change the angle-point of the attachement to create this look, so you even are not able to "turn" them manually left or right.

    Modular Pub – alternate build for 10264 Corner Garage

    Sorry for my late reply. Thank you all. @jimimActually I built this alternate of the Corner Garage because I didn't like the original set either. Have I written this before? - no, I don't think so.. :) @SvendpFor now I'm not planning to build alternates for these two sets since they both are art nouveau buildings (or at least they are what I think it's art nouveau ;) ) and for to build something different from them, I had to build a later building style and therefore something that I personally don't like very much ;)

    [MOC] Santa is on its way

    Thanks. @Bornin1980somethingThe new element would not fit in the front of the Aedelsten. It only fits in the front of Santa's car because of the other grille I used. The front of the Aedelsten only has space for some one-plate-thick element.

    LEGO IDEAS Vintage car contest, failed submission.

    Seems like I haven't looked into this forum for too long, since I missed this thread. This was one of my absolute favourites in the contest. And you definitely would have deserved to win the contest, too. You managed to combine the 50s style with a great and innovative feature in a unique and imo mainly new way. Your entry could have been some kind of a prototype or concept car in the 1950s. Although your approx 7 studs wide version is also great, I like the original 6 studs wide version better. And actually I think the small wheels fit the car very well.

    [MOC] Classic Police Car

    Since there was a police car missing in the new LEGO 10278 Police Station I had to design one that - in my opinion - fits well to it. This one is not a cheap copy of Santas car, but actually Santa stole his car from both, the poor late 50s police officer (and repainted it in classic christmas colors) and the red Aedelsten version I built about one year ago. As I built Santas car, this police car was already fully planned and I only was waiting for some parts to complete it. I again created building instructions for this one (with other wheels), available at rebrickable. Classic Police Car by Versteinert, auf Flickr Classic Police Car by Versteinert, auf Flickr
