  1. Beautiful shapes and colors. The dirigible core is a work of art! I'm curious about it's geometry, are the roll cages (windscreen 64450) fixed at 45 degrees or a 3 4 5 triangle?
  2. Hmm, that's strange. I searched up those parts you mentioned and they appeared in Stud.io for me. Have you tried checking C:\Program Files\Studio 2.0\ldraw\parts to see if the aforementioned parts are there? If not, then perhaps you might have to reinstall or somehow download the latest parts library.

    MOC: Container House II

    お久しぶりです Eurobricks 🙇 It's been so long since I've shared any new MOCs over here. Life got in the way for a while, and I haven't had much opportunities for personal LEGO projects. But today I have something that hearkens back to an old MOC of mine that I posted here during the end of 2018 (gosh it feels kinda nostalgic already ) Container House II A follow-up to it's predecessor, but with fully legal construction and much less fun to look at! Gone are all the cool angles and playful colors, instead I have opted for rigid shapes, a monotone black and white color scheme and a heavy emphasis on realism. Almost representative of transitioning from a high and optimistic TFOL to an A F O L too bogged down with the "realities" of life... pics are worth a thousand words etc etc so I won't bother you all with more text lol. enjoy the pics :) Back to more text!!! As a sort of post-mortem, here is a pic of the older and younger container house siblings. I love them both in their own aspects and have put a lot of thought and care into designing them. But I can't shake the feeling that despite the latter being a more successful and better executed LEGO model, the core idea is inherently weaker than it's predecessor IMO. Not to mention the amount of ideas that were copy-pasted from the former model. (very apparent when you view the interior of both models.) I came into this build hoping to completely outdo myself from the past, but it seems that the 4 year old model will still remain as one of my landmark models. As a footnote, I should add that I built this second Container House for the Bricklink Designer Program Series 1. I don't feel good in commodifying my creations all the time (even though that's pretty much the case now). But if it weren't for the program I wouldn't have pushed myself to bring this model into existence and I'm just happy to have made something new. (Not because I NEED THE MONIES or anything.) As well, though it may seem like the limited palette resulted in the restrained color scheme, that is not the case. It was a conscious decision of mine from the start that just happened to work well with the palette's availability. Thank you very much for viewing. 🙇
  5. In the instructions maker? From my use, I haven't found a way to do that, so I just have to keep clicking. Yeah, Studio uses the internet. It has to connect to the Bricklink marketplace to display the latest $$$ for each brick. Can be used offline, but the $$$ of the bricks won't appear.

    Aaaah, sorry I didn't mean for it to look that way!! I made the pic myself just to tease ya'll on this being an actual LEGO set. (Nokturn did a great job on the design after all.)

    [MOC] Florentine Palazzo

    Ah I see, no wonder this one has some Giacinto Consiglio vibes to it! Thanks for sharing some additional background on your model, interesting to know that the similar composition to PR wasn't planned. It was cool seeing the building techniques that went into those windows from the instructions (big props for making them free), although they may be chunky, the whole is definitely greater than the sum of it's parts. Yeah it's nice that drawings tend to simplify things too. I love seeing photos of real buildings as well, but in real life there's different materials used with different textures which are often essential in it's design, while all we have to work with are shiny plastic bricks. On the other hand there are also super detailed paintings and sketches. As a result, I have to depend on colors and shape as a crutch when looking for references to work with, and drawings do stick out more in that aspect. I'm currently working on a couple of MOC commissions, haven't had the time to work on personal projects as a result. Though with a full year almost passing already, I hope I can start cooking up designs for my next modular soon.

    So good to see another Modular Building from you! (Can't imagine it's been two years. ) The choice of composition is quite inspired! Mixing the Parisian Restaurant layout into a corner building is certainly something I haven't seen before, and it works well! (With the staircase, it almost looks like the tan building trying to hug the front one. I think that helps blend the two buildings together.) The color blocking is thoughtful as well, they both accentuate or mask details appropriately. Man, you've also got a knack for building in all four directions, those windows looked like a technical challenge to fit into the building (not to mention the whole chunk at the top built upside down), although maybe at the cost of the interior in some places. As well, can definitely agree with preferring drawings over photos , perhaps there's also something with them being more vibrant and colorful compared to real life, which is easier to picture with the bright colors of LEGO bricks. But overall, it's been very cool to see how your modular designs continue to evolve over time!
  12. Nice! Wish I could've been there to see them in action up close
  13. It's so satisfying to watch in action. Really cool build!
  14. This looks like so much fun! (Perhaps even more so than the A-model) For such a big and sleek design, I can't believe this has more posing ability than the Samurai-X mech from the same wave.

    [MOC] Tiny Island House

    Came for the house moc, left with a wholesome story. (rip house though...) The story is hilarious, nice way to show a MOC. The tiny house is charming and the little fellas (along with the cannons) are adorable!
