    LEGO Technic Supercar Auction

    Congratulations on the achievement of this wonderful project! Everything about it is brilliant; involving Grum, the choice of the car to model, the involvement of Pagani, the modelling itself (Jeroen Ottens, you've outdone yourself!) and last but not least, the charity auction... You both are amazing people, thank you for sharing this real-life fairy tale with us!

    [BSBA] Cat B - The Space Bar

    Thanks Grum! The spaceship could be improved a lot, but even more than time (this was built in one night, the last day of the contest) I had to make do with the parts I have. This is about all blue/grey parts left that I have: For example, I wish I could have used more blue, but almost all the blue went under the body, and I even had to build a rib cage-like structure because I got carried away and the ship ended bigger than expected. The upside is that it is quite light! So it has flaws, but not in terms of playability. Which is my priority: my kids have to be able to play with my MOCs. Thanks for reading!

    [BSBA] Cat B - The Space Bar

    Chill, ain't it? Thanks! Yes, there were no other entries with that classic space color theme and style, so I felt I had to! It was 4AM CET on the initial deadline day when I finished publishing the spaceship pictures. So they were quite dim and most notably, the transparent yellow parts lack their fluorescent shine in the absence of UV. Since the deadline was pushed, I thought it was okay to post better pics with acceptable lighting. It's not a huge build, but it is tough enough to let my kids play with it, plus it has nice play features. Tested and approved!

    [BSBA] Cat B - The Space Bar

    This time, Benny and his friends were called on duty as they were enjoying themselves at their favorite spot; the Space Bar! It's a nice place to hang out. Gino the bartender is most friendly. He can synthetize any drink you like. And the primitive components' kegs can be replaced easily. Be sure to test the lounge area too. Quite the deal, after a few drinks from outer space. Then, Benny and friends had to go on mission without delay. They borrowed Gino a few parts. In fact he was left with almost nothing but the promise they will come back and pay for their drinks... and the rest. Being a bartender is not an easy life! And it was spaceship building time. This is what Benny came up with using parts from the Space Bar: Spaceship! I felt I had to put it an entry for Cat B. With not much time nor parts, each one of these MOCs are one night builds. I started sorting out all parts in the classic space color scheme that were more or less usable in a spaceship and built something that was not a spaceship with them. The Space Bar appeared. Then, the following night, I dismantled the bar and started building a spaceship. It was a very fun experience, even if the result is quite modest. It's now very late, I think I need some rest. Too bad the bar is gone...

    [MOC] Ski resort cafe. Alternative build from the LEGO set 60222

    Nice one! Using the tracks to build spaceship engines is a cool idea.

    [BSBA] CAT B- Benny's Space Transporter/Hovercraft

    On the main BSBA Topic, Bob said that. So I guess either you consider this build the is bennification of another and you'll have to build a new MOC that would in fact be the model this build is based on (a blocky bunker/landing pod maybe?), OR you consider this model is the base and you build an actual spaceship out of this one. The choice is yours, but you'll need two MOCs for cat B, I'm quite sure. Hope this helps!

    [BSBA] CAT B- Benny's Space Transporter/Hovercraft

    Excellent blocky, old school looks. Highly improbable, lots of fun, I like it ! Will you build a spaceship based on this, or is this the bennification of another MOC ? I think you need to have the before/after thing... Maybe ask Bob to make sure.

    [BSBA] Cat A - Benny's Space Groomer

    Thanks! With a small model to work on and thus not a lot of parts, I wanted to make the most of them! À propos… - Edited main post to update pictures after a small upgrade:

    [BSBA] Cat A - Town Hall Spaceship

    I just thought of something.. Isn't it missing a door ? Especially, the door to a town hall is something symbolic, it's usually imposing. You come in a bachelor and get out a married man. Or the opposite. But still..
