    Post-Apocalypse, a small vaccination?

    What do you not understand in an MOC, post-apocalyptic in a dystopia, humorous ? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dystopiahttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apocalyptic_and_post-apocalyptic_fictionhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyberpunk If all the artists on the planet (and whatever the type of art), had to do something that they really mean, and not, from another angle, then the cultural or artistic aspect would be very poor. So stop, your personal opinions to judge a person out of context, because your nerves are on edge because of the health situation which distorts your reality, your impressions, your psyche and your opinions. And in addition, with a disease and humorous fictitious medication from the lego-world, written in full in my text : hydroalcoolbrick. And with a fictional "crazy" & badwoman girl named Harley Quinn. Here, it's fictitious and humorous lego, in a post-apocalyptic dystopia
  2. The Antivaxes ravaged the vaccination center. So with great evils, great remedies. Mecha shot vaccination equipped with 4 syringe Gatling guns, huge vaccine reservoir in the back, retention clamps and giant hydroalcoolbrick gel syringe cannons. And for the runaways, we hired Harley Quinn as our chief anesthesiologist ... who won't miss you ! Apocalypse, a small vaccination? by Horlack, sur Flickr And for humor, in the blink of an eye: - Tile 2 x 2 with Groove with Radioactive Man Pattern (71006), from the Simpsons set, with the dripping green slim. Radioactive Man, the superhero, who "heals" all bad guys. - Tile 2 x 4 with Flowers, Brick, 'MAKE LEGO MODELS' and 'NOT WAR' Pattern (Sticker) of the mythical Set 10220-1 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van (VW Bus) A proper reference to the MOC itself: an apocalypse scene in lego, in the Flower Power period. You will go and ask Harley Quinn for the design of Flower Power who will explain, with all his personalized love. xD - The head of droid R5-D4 in the Mecha's kneepad. Because red is good for medic ! Robot yet just as mythical and which nevertheless goes almost unnoticed in the trilogy. He was on Tatooine in the Jawa Sand Chariot along with C-3PO and R2-D2. It was bought by Owen Lars with the protocol droid C-3PO, but malfunctioned moments later. So the farmer took R2-D2 instead. And yes, without him, no R2-D2 What do you mean, a robot that unblocks/malfunctions ? I am perfectly in the theme. lol

    [MOC] [Neo-Mtron] - Armored Walker

    [MOC] [Neo-Mtron] - Armored Walker -3 crew members. -1 pilot/engine driver. -1 gunner. -1 mechanic. - Double Railgun at the front. - Laser cannon on the tail (brickbuild). - Radar (brickbuild). I used a lot of wheeled vehicle parts to give that rounded look. - The old mythical part N°3787-Vehicle Mudguar 2x4 with Arch Smooth, which we find in our good old classic-space or City. - Part N°41854-Vehicle Mudguar 2x4 with Flared Wings, which I used in the seat backs and the radar.. - Part N°44674-Vehicle Mudguar 2x4 with Headlights Overhang, which I used in the tail. - Part N°41862-Plate Modified 2x2 with grills, which I used in the tail and the radar. Part that we find more for the radiators of City cars. - Part N°98834-Vehicle, Spoiler 2x4 with Handle, which I used in the legs. - Part N°44675-Slope curved 2x2 No Stud 3 Side Ports Recessed, found in the fronts of City cars. [NCS] Neo-Mtron - Armored Walker by Horlack, on Flickr [NCS] Neo-Mtron - Armored Walker by Horlack, on Flickr The canopies do not exist in these colors. But it is a choice by constraint. None of the canopies, but really none, of those Trans-Yellow or Trans-Neon-Green or Trans-Neon-Yellow colors do well. That is to say, they are too angular with respect to the body which is rounded or has curves. The possible canopies in these 3 colors literally break the physiognomy of the vehicle, to the point that it is "ugly" or disturbing. It literally breaks that general aspect. It's rare that I take pieces in a color that doesn't exist. Example during my design / brainstorming tests in alpha version : => the angular front canopy, is too opposed to the general roundness effect of the vehicle

    [NCS] Heavy Mobile Rocket Launcher

    [NCS] Heavy Mobile Rocket Launcher Do with LDD and Stud.io It's a mix that brings together the sets : - 462 Mobile Rocket Launcher - 483 Alpha-1 Rocket Base - 6881 Lunar Rocket Launcher - 6950 Mobile Rocket Transport at the same time, and bigger ! All these sets look more or less alike, or are just different variations depending on the version. Hence the idea of bringing them all together, in a 4 in 1, mastodon version. I used the 90 ° snot technique with the control consoles in the wall, in order to be able to accommodate as many control panels as possible and gain 2 additional horizontal studs. This allows me to put 4 crew members, their seats and a small passageway (narrowly) for them to move between the seats. The roof with the 2 radars unclips and the front canopy swivels, allowing accessibility. My only regret: not being able to put the 2 sides in blue (the back of the 2 console panels), because part N°11203 (flat Tile, Modified 2 x 2 Inverted) does not exist in this color. I had to settle for gray. I was amazed, myself, to have built it in just 3 days! Upon reflection, I think I understood why I did it in such a short time. I put this down to several things: -1/ I already had the basis of my NCS - City Mars Exploration - Heavy Mobile Lab, which had taken me a good 10 days. In addition to the experience of construction / internal arrangement of the vehicle. -2/ I already had the radar and the rocket, of my [NCS] 462-897- Mobile Rocket Launcher, Remastered, which took me 3-4 days. -3/ I already had the seats of my NCS - Heavy Transport -4/ I already had the wall consoles, from my NCS - Heavy Transport. (at least, retained my reverse construction technique) which had taken a hell of a lot of time, because I had to put a maximum of computer consoles in a minimalist space, and above all, at 90 ° and inverted in relation to the wall! (so damn technical difficulty in tearing your hair). Just for that, I had to spend several days there. -5/ My past experiences, which are almost a hallmark of me: the exterior ofmy ships and vehicles (NCS - Heavy Transporter, NCS - City Mars Exploration - Martian Colonization Base, Intergalactic Girl, NCS LL-6929 Starfleet Voyager, Space Heavy Rover, Lunar Space Pod , NCS - City Mars Exploration - Heavy Mobile Lab, etc) are generally stripped down, but on the other hand, the interior is generally quite shielded in every way. Putting a lot of greeblings, in a confined and minimalist space, it almost became my "hobby". So normally, given the size of the mastodon's vehicle, it should have taken me at least 7-14 days well packed. But since I do all my constructions " in modular ", I can easily transplant parts (or modules) to put them in other constructions. In addition to past construction experiences. This is why I only took 2-3 days and saved a lot of time. The images are in HD + (> 4096 pixels) on my flickr to zoom in on them.

    My NCS Series Remastered :)

    [NCS] 886 - Space Buggy, Remastered It is my chassis from [NCS] 6802 - Space Probe by changing the rear of the vehicle. Rear with articulated arm, 2 fire extinguishers, ore box, articulated arm control panel, 1 spaceman's hand tools, one antenna, 1 airtank. Front of the buggy with camera, sensors, binoculars, 2 walkie-talkies, a mini-satellite-antenna and control panel. [NCS] 886 - Space Buggy, Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 6928 - Uranium Search Vehicle, Remastered [NCS] 6928 - Uranium Search Vehicle, Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 6928 - Uranium Search Vehiclen, Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 6842 - Shuttle Craft, Remastered A small remastered 6842-Shuttle Craft. Walkie-talkie, camera/weapon (depending on). On the Shuttle : reactors, engines, jet turbine, cannons, 4 front sensors, radiators, small antenna, 2 horizontal ailerons, 2 vertical ailerons, lifters, steering nozzle, rear computer control panel. Basically, I took a bit of inspiration from the Speeders of the Meta-Universe from Starwars. search keywords for all see : "type = speeders" https://www.starwars-universe.com/encyclopedie/vaisseaux_vehicules.php [NCS] 6842 - Shuttle Craft, Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 462-897- Mobile Rocket Launcher, Remastered The Mythic 462-897 Mobile Rocket Launcher set was too small, so ... I remastered it in 2020 version. I had some difficulty with the Rocket, because I didn't want to use round bricks. I wanted something more elegant with cool building techniques. So I remade the rocket entirely in brickbuild. Ditto for the radar. In short, a little technical originality. I didn't want to be conventional. I used the elements of my old constructions to keep it homogeneous. The radar cockpit rotates 360°, and the radar itself also rotates, 360°. The radar cockpit is quite worked with control screens everywhere, as well as small joysticks. A walkie-talkie, a hammer and an adjustable wrench hang on it. I retake : - The chassis of my [NCS] 6802-Space Probe Remastered - The radar of my [NCS] 452-894-Mobile Tracking Station, Remastered [NCS] 462-897- Mobile Rocket Launcher, Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 462-897- Mobile Rocket Launcher, Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr The goal is to remain homogeneous in the architecture. Which is sometimes not an easy task. All the blocks are interchangeable, between all my creations. It's Modular, on a vehicle scale. Details of the rocket. Use of modified brick, by turning them 45 ° in the central body of the rocket, in order to build it "in hexagon" [NCS] 6901 - Mobile Lab, Remastered Always in the spirit of keeping modules of old constructions to reuse them. Just to swap modules, to make another MOC. Maximum standardization. The forward cockpit contains 2 repair utensils. It opens through doors on the side or through the central canopy. It is a resumption of the cockpit of the "1580 Lunar Scout, Remastered", by adding 2 ladders, and by rotating the roof sensors 180 °. The aft cockpit opens by rotating the canopy, or through the roof by eclipsing the radar. It contains 2 levers and 3 control panels which are in height. The chassis is also a recovery. An excavator entirely made in brickbuild. I did not find any existing parts, adapted to the scale of the vehicle, so a brickbuild is needed :) [NCS] 6901 - Mobile Lab, Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 6901 - Mobile Lab, Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr Well, I'm pretty happy with the look. I was worried that with my history of taking modules from other builds, it would result in a lousy mobile lab. Overall, "no". I had to be inventive on the rear 4x6 module block part. Once the seat and the astronaut were installed, I found myself stuck putting screens on him! And worse, not being able to get it out of the cockpit, lol Yeah, that's bad! Even blowing up the radar which is made up of 2 modular blocks, there was really little room. in fact, I had it kinda on my own, absolutely wanting a seat, which made it worse in a minimalist space. My neurons have overheated! Hence the idea of putting a canopy at an angle, from the top, to gain length space to take out the spaceman, but also to put control panels on the ceiling. And in fact, without wanting to, I took again in a different form, the horizontal rear opening of the 2 doors of the original 6901, but in a single vertical one at the rear. [MOC] [NCS] 6802 Space Probe, Remastered Bigger on a Buggy chassis with double probes. The robot deserved a 2020 update. :) - Head 3626bpb0034 : Minifigure, Head Alien with Copper Skin and Silver Eyepiece Pattern - torso 973pb1061 : Torso Robot with Silver Rivets - Arm 62691 : Arm Mechanical [NCS] 6802 - Space Probe Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 6802 - Space Probe Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 1580 Lunar Scout Remastered I kept the structures of my old creations, to remain homogeneous, and above all to make it "modular". The goal is to make all of my vehicles modular, and interchange the components between vehicles, to rebuild them as they see fit. Structure of the articulated Mini-arm found in, my [NCS] 6841 - Heavy Mineral Detector, Remastered Structure of the bumpers, which can be found [NCS] 452-894 - Mobile Tracking Station, Remastered I put a mini articulated arm at the back, in addition to the 2 mineral containers. The canopy is not green, because I will take over the cockpit structure for another construction. I couldn't put the chassis as low as the original, but overall I stayed in the "spirit" of the little scout utility vehicle. [NCS] 1580 Lunar Scout Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 1580 Lunar Scout Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 6841 - Heavy Mineral Detector Remastered I continue my series. I feel hot and boiling there! ☢️ A little Classic-space 6841 Mineral Detector Remastered, only bigger. I have tried to stay true to the functionality and structure of the original. Then added in all directions: Mini-articulated arm at the back, box to store minerals, box to crush minerals and analyze them, communication antenna, walkie-talkies, various small radars / cameras / front detectors at the front of the vehicle, small rock hammer, hand detector (which can be hung on the mini articulated arm) and various control panels. [NCS] 6841 - Heavy Mineral Detector Remastered by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 6841 - Heavy Mineral Detector Remasterised by Horlack, sur Flickr [NCS] 452-894 - Mobile Tracking Station, Remastered Functional quality, of course :). Radar in tow that turns in all directions. The 2 small folding jacks when the trailer is unhooked. (A radar not horizontal, when the trailer tilts, it works much less well!) Radar on the roof of the vehicle which rotates 360 °. I really thoroughly styled this 2nd radar with sensors everywhere and tried to keep "the best spirit" with the 2 round transparent things.

    [NCS]-Space city under construction,  microscale

    Totally agree. The hexagonal part attracted me, but I didn't know what to do with it right away. Then the inspiration came, 24h after It is not false :)
  13. [NCS]-Space city under construction, microscale I felt inspired. Space city under construction in microscale. It is by doing anything that we become ... uh ....... Afol? :) Let the city under construction, is voluntary. There is 70% empty space. It is to set up the start of spatial colonization. Kind of like a "outpost-city". There are 3 landing strips with gravity generators. A forest in the center, under the dome. LDD and Stud.io.

    [MOC] NCS - Heavy Tranporter

    Thank you all. Now, I do the front half (cockpit, rest / catering room), then finally the base of the airstrip. A small video preview in 3D stud.io, where I am in my work. This may need to change a bit. But let's say, that the main lines of ideas are there. For the airstrip, I think I'll use that kind of concept in medium / dark gray. A lunar thing, with 2-3 craters or mounds, and the trail in the middle. Nothing is defined, I am still thinking about it. SNOT terrain - example by Blake Foster, on Flickr In the meantime I had a little inspiration. I did 3 tests of small drones, which I could perhaps incorporate on the scenery of the airstrip. I made 3 examples to see the possibilities. But it is obvious that we can put what we want: maintenance drone, repair drone, surveillance drone, medical drone, etc ... There are 2 attachment points with the hands, and 2 points rear (sustentators reactors/magnetic reactors). Which leaves some inventive or inspiring possibilities when they come to mind.
