    [MOC] BDP Mountain Fortress

    @Follows Closely I'm pretty sure it was like that all along At least I didn't change anything it in recent months.

    [MOC] Sikes Guns n Ammo

    The gun shop is an interesting cover for Sike's main business. Of course it's just a nice detail on top of his choice of location.

    [MOC] BDP Mountain Fortress

    Impressive Looks like you need a few Technic axle connectors at this point.

    [MOC] BDP Mountain Fortress

    @Follows Closely Not bad! You may lack patience, but you make up for it with perseverance This is the original floor plan (I hope I won't be sued by Bricklink for contract infringement).

    [MOC] Lagoon Lockup Revisited (once more)

    @BrickCommander9 Thanks! It's surely a good idea to add a boat and bring some more life to the scene! One day I'll do it ;) Recently I added one more house. The story behind it is that after a long and successful career, Cpt. Redbeard decided to finally settle down. He bought a cozy blue house, right next to the port authority building, where, thanks to the frequent patrols of bluecoat soldiers, he didn't have to worry about the safety of his treasures If you like it, instructions are on Rebrickable:

    Hi, Everyone! At first I want to apologize, this topic is about my entry in Bricklink Designer Program and I'm pretty sure there is some place dedicated to this stuff but somehow I couldn't find it - so please let me know or just move this post where it belongs Now, to the point. Of course there are far too few Lego castles around, so I decided to build one more: Here are some photos of the actual build, proving it's buildable : And yes, I like Ninjago

    [MOC] Castle of Lord Afol

    Hi, thanks for your interest! All is not lost - I have submitted another project to Bricklink Designer Program, the voting has just begun, so you're very welcome to support it: Something more similar to the original Lord Afol's Castle may follow at a later date.

    Some thugs decided to allocate their shady assets in real estate... Of course they built it all without construction permit!

    There's no justice in this world... Well, I've just made some! I should take proper pictures of the actual thing. Maybe I can do it this weekend if only someone takes the kids away

    [MOC] Sabre Island Anno Domini 2021

    It's just made of 1x4 tiles attached to a sigle black 1 x 1 modified brick with studs on sides (so it's fragile but it's in the interior, so it's not a problem); and the gold plate is just attached to a "headlamp" piece. And of course everything sits on a jumper plate. The cabinets are actually more interesting

    Well, I interpreted it as an officers' mess and placed something slightly similar on the second floor of my build And yes, 30 years is a lot of time!
  13.   Ahoy! Some time ago I thought it would be cool to have a modular pirate-era town. I also wanted to remake one of the all-time best Lego sets, namely Lagoon Lockup. And so this project came to being. I found normal Modulars too large and incompatible with a harbor setting, so I went for a 6x6 module, where each building's width is a multiplication of this module. So there are 12-stud wide and 18-stud wide buildings, with an option for 6-, 24- or 30-stud wide as well. The same building can be placed in a row or on a corner and it still works, because side walls have enough detail. Floors and back walls can be removed for better access. I also invested heavily in tiling, because I heard that studs are outdated Like with my last year's Sabre Island, I put instructions on Rebrickable: I will add real photo as soon as I get it right... if I manage before my kids unleash a proper tornado. Please share your thoughts!

    [MOC] El Puerto de Cartagena (Anno 1585)

    Super cool! I particularly like how it's full of detail and texture, while apparently not using excessively many pieces. Looks very playable too. Great job!

    Thanks again You're right about the 2x3 plates. You can generally substitute dark orange for nougat and vice versa, it will work just as well, it's only important that you do actually use both colors, not just one of them. Another particularly rare piece is dark orange 1x4 plate with two studs, I only had 4 of them and used nougat for the other 4 when I was building it and it looked ok. I could use 4 dark orange and 4 nougat in the instructions (but not 8 nougat, as it would look dull), but I assumed as a rule of thumb, that it will be easier to collect 8 items of the rarer color than two different colors. I tried to use as few color variants of each brick as possible without compromising the looks, just to keep the inventory list shorter. Maybe it was the right approach, maybe not...
