    [MOC] The future is bright - part I Hybris

    I like the view inside the rings :-) Here is a naked ring that shows you the idea how everything was build 20180929_181532 by Ralf Langer, auf Flickr Looks weird but this moc really needed special techniques :-) Here you can see how I fixed the position of the "tracks".

    [MOC] The future is bright - part I Hybris

    This gives an overview over all the segments. They were not quite finished then. You can see that some of them are quite rough, cause you cannot see them anyway. But I will soon take part in an exhibition and then I have to rebuild the whole model. I will also do a closed half-circle (eliminating the gaps) so that you can look inside it from the front. Here you can see how large it is! For the exhibition I will lay it down. I had to photograph it this way because of reflections. Its 150 Studs high, or long...

    [MOC] The future is bright - part I Hybris

    Na, it's far from perfection but thanks :-) I would give it 70%. There are quite a lot of things that should be changed :-) Anyone interested in more photos?
  5. Shiptember Men will conquer the stars. Live long and prosper. The future is bright. The picture shows some kind of spaceship that contains a world to live in. No glue, stickers or dirty tricks. Leave a comment or a like to help me keep up my motivation for part II: the future is dark I'm so sorry cause I had planed something much more epic but the time for the Shiptember Entries is runnning out. I will add much more photos soon. The whole tube is longer than 1,50 meters. For all the Dr. Who fans: It's kind of a reversed TARDIS - it's bigger from the outside. Space magically disappears when looking inside the tube. As you can see there are 4 support rings and three segments. While the first segment looks large the last segment is hardly visible. I will present it at the Fanworld (16-18 November) in Cologne and then disassemble it. I will do a rebuild so that you can have a look from the side. I will add many details, sky scrapers and space ships for the exhibition that I couldn't use in the picture. It's not the prettiest MOC but I had to face severe building restrictions. i) Every two studs the ground bends, so I could only build on a 2 studs wide base. In other words I couldn't build anything wider than two studs. ii) The "ground level" is the level, where the bricks perfectly align to each other. I could build higher on one of those two studs wide tracks, but I couldn't build something next to it. Building below ground level is possible, but then there are small gaps. So my building range was limited to a height of exactely 3 plates most of the times. iii) No parts availlable in the colors I used. My colour scheme is mainly medium green, bright green, green and dark green. Medium green - which is ironically a very light and damped color and not medium at all - is a rare Scala color with almost no availlable parts. There are no small plates, no tiles and I had only the 3004 bricks. Bright green has a few more parts but is still very limited. The only tile is a 1 x 4 for example. There are no plates either. iv) Because of this extremely flat angle I had to use much space so that the result would not be a total mess. v) The bends between all those two studs wide tracks is done with my beloved mixel hinges (other hinges would have worked better, since I only needed one direction the bend should be in). So I had to fix everything in a way, that adjacent tracks stay together and do not open up. This is only possible on certain hights. I have to show a photo to illustrate that. Apart from that I had to incorporate those 4 rings to hold all the segments together. Somehow I had to provide light. I couldn't just build a full circle. That was in fact something I tought about a long time before I began building. How to get light into a tube? But what would a real station like this would look like? They also would need light. Some lights in the middle of the circle? I doubt it. There has to be some kind of sky. I had - more or less - two options: building a half circle only or leaving spaces.
  6. Awesome! Thanks, mate!

    [MOC] Don't climb on trees! Run!

    I didn't manage to do the whole ting in time. The shell would be extremely complex.
  8. Thanks again! If I ever do this I will mail them and ask!
  9. Thanks for the info! I would have liked to give the painter some credit when adopting his work to Lego.
  10. Oh, I thought I already would be quite established since I did some well received MOCs the last few month I don't meant that I do not feel technically ready... I just want to finish some of my own ideas before. But again: Can anybody tell me who did this great artwork below the map?
  11. For a brief moment I considered joining, but I think I'm not ready yet. There's a couple of things I have to build before :-) Who did the art just below the map? I'm not doing medieval stuff right now but I have to build something like this! Or has anyone done this yet?

    Overview of Lego Contests?

    Ok, I haven't found anything yet, either. So I don't need to look out for it right now.

    Overview of Lego Contests?

    It seems ages since I opened this topic. The summer joust was pretty ok for me though I mismanaged my time and couldn't finish the remaining three categories. Next stop Colossal Battle Contest?

    How to build a medieval priest minifg?

    I didn't do the intended priest MOC after all, because time was running out. But at least I took this scary shot with the priest an some random background IMG_7028 by Ralf Langer, auf Flickr

    [MOC] The Wood Tryptichon

    Thanks! Jonas used a fog/smoke machine to achieve the light. Take a look at the bold man in the third picture. Looks like he has a wooden arm. Maybe he was a former carpenter (or axemen). Those times were hard back then... @all Thanks for your kind words!
