    [MOC] Kv. Öfvre Garnisonen

    The copper roof looks fantastic. The architecture remins me of Amsterdam School's brick expressionist social housing projects from 1910s and 1920s. The colour scheme seems well balances, except maybe those lime green roof bits (but it's okay because it's cool piece use and they don't come in sand green or completely dark green). It's sometimes hard to use reddish brown as main wall colour, as everyone thinks its unpainted wood - even though wood is rarely brown. I suppose it's brick here, and I think it looks great with white window frames. And, bit of a nitpicking, but I think the sides of the roof would be better if they'd be made of tan or brown bricks. It's not much use putting expensive roof cladding material to load-bearing walls.

    Telephone building Modular

    Well composed monumental facade. I like the colour change on the side wall and the main face, reflecting how more representative material is used on the public side. The stair box looks also very nice. Telephone exchange buildings are interesting genre of architecture from turn of the 20th century. Helsinki has one that looks like a medieval fortress, having a big contrast with the modern invention, telephone. But it's an excellent building.

    Rotting Leviathan

    It's a great idea, and well executed with parts from large variety of themes. Well done, hermit crabs are cool.

    Lego Licensed Parts available from Bricks & Pieces

    It has been open to Finland for several years. At least from 2015, I think. I've been using it. The old direct link to B&P doesn't seem to work. It might be due to the major site update.

    [MOC] Orc Character Build

    Cool ruthless design, I like how the spiky minifig weapons on the helmet have similar motif with those ridiculous sword crossguards. The model overall uses plenty of weird and unusual pieces and that's a thing I enjoy in MOCs myself. The yellow stare is also striking.

    [MOC/IDEAS] The Mole

    The Mole - originally Krtek - is a cartoon character created by Czech animator Zdeněk Miler. He has appeared in 50 animations between 1956-2002. The mole is curious, friendly and caring. The animations vary from couple of minutes to half an hour in lenght and apart from the debut, "How the mole got his trousers", do not feature any narration or dialogue. Character's non-figurative exclamations were voiced my Miler's daughters. This was to have the cartoons understandable in every language without need of dubbing. The mole cartoons have been very popular in several countries, including many Central European countries, Russia, India, Japan and Finland. This is also my first IDEAS project. You can find it here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/96873418-a994-42b5-a8d8-ecfd3ba1af8a Support is appreciated. The model is rather sturdy - my models usully are not - as the Mole is quite a cylinder-shaped animal. He is also very round, which took plenty of SNOT connections and curved slopes to get right. The 3x3x2 curved corner pieces were the key parts. Another challenge were the arms, as I didn't want them to be just couple of tubes. More pictures can be found on my blog, Cyclopic Bricks.

    [MOC] The Blue Angel of Hallow

    The angelic overseer of the new digital age, guiding lost souls through the binary paths of ether networks. I wanted to build a character using blue, as I rarely use it as the main colour. Magenta worked nicely as the secondary colour. One trick that was on my short list was those solar panels, inverted; the sticker has a print on both sides, so the underside gets enigmatic blue glitter pattern. The halo is a Clickits wristband.

    [MOC] Tea ceremony in Japanese garden

    Thanks for your kind words everyone! Making the samurai's legs be fitting to both standing and sitting pose was a new challenge. Luckily those 2x2 round plate/TECHNIC connectors joints enable 180 degrees to start with.Then I just had to make the backsides of the upper legs quite empty. Fortunately the dress part of the armour hides it nicely.
  10. I wanted to build a geisha in vibrant kimono, and an another samurai character to accompany her. A tea ceremony scene felt natural way to do it. It was going to take place in a tea house or a pavillion at first, but as I didn't have parts for the walls in this scale, I changed the setting into a garden. The geisha also became a maiko, an apprentice geisha, as they wear more detailed attire. Vibrant and rugged colour scheme and details on two different sides of the creation reflect the character's nature and class; the maiko is surrounded by flowers, and the samurai's swords rest on the rocks beside him. More pictures and talk on my blog.

    Ninjago Legacy Contest

    Here's my entry, refurbished 9448 Samurai Mech:
  15. My entry to Legacy Contest, new version of 9448 Samurai Mech. It has been made as an official Legacy set, 70665 THE Samurai Mech, but the retake felt inferior compared to original. I wanted to enhance the samurai armour feel of the original's silhouette, keeping some key elements like round, kabuto-like cockpit, spinner crown on chest, cowcatcher shoulder pads with cannons and the weapons, while re-imaginin completely the blocky legs and making the helmet more helmet-like. I felt actual grim face on the cockpit would look imposing and unsettling on a huge mech, striking fear to enemies. The hinged cockpit opens, revealing Samurai X piloting the mech. Her katana is stored under the mech's plate skirt armour. And yes, the mech has knee joints. Thanks for watching and thanks to Peppermint_M for organizing this inspiring contest! -Eero/Pate-keetongu
