  1. Great job, it has the looks of an official set! If I had to be nitpicking, I would've taken a different approach to the minifig stand though. It looks a bit flimsy (although it does its job well I reckon) and takes away from the overall aesthetic imho. I agree ! Personally, I'm not the biggest fan of the Art line(all those logo's and gate residue that 'need' to be put in the correct position/turned away triggers my latent OCD) and the fact they do not provide a minifig adds to that. Are you planning to do more like this? (either work from Lichtenstein or other artists or perhaps some comic frames?)

    [MOC] White Eagle Knights

    Nice job Ayrlego, I’m amazed at how many MOCs you manage to produce with such constant quality! I think you’d have to be quick, I know 2 of the 3 stores in my vicinity have already sold out. Hahahaha far yellow extremist! I used to be in your camp as well but find more and more reasons to let go of yellow heads every now and then.

    [MOC] TriPerron - Nomad Class Explorer

    Oh snap that is one-two-three nice space SHIPs!! Will this live long enough for us to see it in person somewhere? Or does it use so many useful and irreplaceable parts it will be torn down within a couple months? Woehahahaha @ZCerberus stop trying to steal the show because you're about to succeed if you keep this up! on the real though I'm plotting Sci-Moc's assassination in order to steal his building skills and internet presence, who's with me?

    [MOC] Lightning has struck!

    So many great things! From the SNOT base of the technic gear collumns, to the little guilded cage, the chess board and the hammock made of minifig capes, I'm loving it! Hope you get a good shot at the prize, because the build deserves it!

    MMV 2.0: José's Inn

    Jose's Inn by Jip Kempers, on Flickr Welcome to José's Inn! The owner is a grump, and his past a bit shady, but it's the only place on the market where you can get black barrel beer! More pics here Thanks for watching!

    This MOC killed you! Lovely build, though, with a lot of npu’s ( and techniques Base is nice too, even the (I’m just gonna put it out there) phallic charms around the edge. Only thing (sort of) missing is a good ole bottle o’ rum!
  7. When I saw the title, at first I thought ”Did someone just complete the Summer Joust group challenge in under 9 days...by himself!?” Evidently this is not the case, but that makes this MOC no less amazing! Lots of great little details. I especially like the different stages of ripening, the brick built chicken coop and blackbird(raven?), and also how you made a nice slot for the seeds.I also like how you put the historically more plausible grape pressing method in it, as well as the romanticised “stomping with the feet” Really the only thing that struck me as a bit odd is the width of the tree in the first and fourth picture, although it looks lovely again in the second Also gave you my support on the Bubble Scouts!

    [MOC] Mushrooms!

    Thanks! Yeah me neither, apparently they were in two sets. The Incredibles Underminer Bank Heist and the Townhouse Pet Shop & Cafe. I happened upon them while searching for the yellow leaves.

    Copenhagen Kiosk, free instructions

    Why? You can buy a set of those pieces for less than a dollar on BL? Like I said on LowLUG, another wonderful design!

    I gotta be more attentive of this thread lol... Most of you will have seen these wander around on Flickr but as a formality I'll add them to this post as well. You can scroll down for the latest updates Big WIP Bridge Studio Render by Jip Kempers, on Flickr Gatehouse/Keep Module WIP Studio by Jip Kempers, on Flickr Big Mystery WIP Studio 18/05/2020 Bley by Jip Kempers, on Flickr Sooo.. Today I haven't been able to do much work on Studio so I decided to break down the tower as I've gotten more and more disturbed by the gaps. Also I still wasn't completely satisfied with the silhouette of the Wolf. So after taking in some of the advice I'd received here and there (more modularity=less destruction to change things, close the gaps, lose the wooden floor) I broke it down and started anew. The result is slightly bigger(it used to be 12x14 it is now 20x20 but unintenionally the dimensions work out much better for the Wolf Silhouette and the fact that the back can be taken off now.

    [MOC] Voyage of the Fyrdraca

    Like I said on the LowLUG forum: another beautiful boat and a nice story to go with it I also love the use of the little shell on the beach and the crow(or raven? ) in the tree to add a little life to the island!

    The Big Mystery WIP

    I see that I missed out on a few updates here.. So after a few nights cursing and searching I’ve decided to stop working “on the fly”. Big Wip Layout by Jip Kempers, on Flickr Even though I’m spending roughly 80% of my Lego time on sorting, my collection is still too chaotic to keep building for more than a few minutes before I get stuck because I couldn’t find enough of the next element, switch the game plan and replay the loop. Big Tower WIP by Jip Kempers, on Flickr I got tired of this and so, after adding a few cheese slopes, I decided to leave my bricks alone except for sorting and some smaller projects, and mainly focus on the design for now. Wip 2 by Jip Kempers, on Flickr I roughly know what I have in stock (I have more elements that I don’t know of than elements I know of and do not have so that’s a plus) so it’s possible for me to continue working in LDD/Studio. bigwipstudio by Jip Kempers, on Flickr I do not consider it the same, though. I’ll never get used to not having bricks in my hands while testing out new connections, but (at the moment) a much speedier development process for the rough sketches.

    Noticed I haven’t done an update in a while, so here’s a few new pics! Wip 4 by Jip Kempers, on Flickr Haven’t progressed much on this module as I too often find myself in doubt about what to do and/or searching for the right elements. I am currently in the middle of sorting my collection so I lack the time(and space) to take proper photography precautions. I used to have an “organised chaos” not unlike some of you might have had in the past but 5 bl orders and 20 big sets later I realised it might not work so well anymore. I did get to mess around with some old and new furniture...
