    [MOC] [MOD] HUMMER H1 - 10265 b-model

    No, i almost every time start build on real. When i'm finished, then i create digital version, piece by piece.
  2. Dodge Challenger is one of my favorite cars. Both, the first generation and the current one, regardless of the edition, always gives me the effect of an uncontrolled wide smile on my face. After Lego released the Technic 42111 Dodge Dom set, which didn't really appeal to me, I lost hope of a 16 stud wide Creator like Mustang. However, in order not to disappoint Dom and faith in the family, the idea was born that it could be built from the 10295 set. In anticipation of your comments, yes I know it is too short. It would be useful to extend it by 2 studs. One on the hood and the other in the cabin. In the middle part it was my conscious choice, but the second one turned out to be an accident at work. Unfortunately it can be seen very much. The second biggest problem with the Challenger is the B-pillars and the roof. I'll not talk about it. Contrary to the Hummer, I tried to make as few compromises as possible and used most of available bricks. There is a steering axle connected to the steering wheel. 16 studs wide. Openable door and hood. A mock-up interior with folding seats. What I am most happy about is the back section, which I had absolutely no idea for when building it. These single-set rebuilds are a lot of fun. It reminds me a bit of the times when as a child I got my first sets and tried to reproduce the models that were presented on the back of the boxes. It seems to me that the fashion for rebuilds came from nostalgia for those times. In my case it is just like that. In addition, creating instructions is something completely new which also gives a lot of satisfaction. The one for the Challenger took me a lot of time and work. Its design is as challenging as the model itself.

    [MOC] [MOD] BMW M1 Procar - 76908 b-model

    I remember a time when 8 studs of vehicle width for minifigs meant that someone built a truck or something that big. Several years ago, this "scale" was not very popular, because of the small selection of tires and windows, although I made a few 8s wide models myself, such as the BMW E24 or the Polonez Coupe. Nevertheless, they were definitely not for figs. Lego once again confirmed its very loose approach to scale by creating the Speed Champions line. Despite the promising start in the form of 6s cars, the series unexpectedly turned into a rash of stickers with strange windows and forcibly added minifigs. When the announcement of the Lamborghini Countach model appeared, for a moment I was fooled that I may still like this series. On the one hand, these models have a lot of charm, they look nice on the shelf, but on the other hand, this huge amount of stickers is a nightmare. It made me think if it is possible to do something sensible by resigning from decals and a minifig. The BMW M1 may not be as iconic as the Countach or Testarossa, but it has its undeniable charm. The silhouette is very similar to the Lambo, so it was immediately chosen this model to build from the 76908 set. As it happens in this game, there was a festival of compromises. Rebuilding with just one set is a big challenge. Both cars are supposed to be the same size, but with about 2/3 of the model I used almost all the white bricks. I started slimming, which had a heavy impact on the rear of the vehicle, but I am quite happy with the final result. This is how the B model of the 76908 set, i.e. the BMW M1 Procar version, was created. Technical info Rebuild of the set 76908 Speed Champions Lamborghini Countach Model: BMW M1 Procar Parts: 221 - also used extra parts Height: 5.5 studs (4 bricks and 2 plates) Width: 8 studs (9 studs with mirrors and fenders) Lenght: 18.5 studs Instruction: 67 steps on 55 pages.

  4. Set 10265 probably needs no introduction to anyone. A fantastic model with a great ratio of the quality and quantity of pieces to the price. Initially, I bought it with the idea of placing it on a shelf. Until the firas popped out with his rebuild version of the Mustang current generation. Despite a few shortcomings, his model definitely makes a wow effect, given that it's a rebuild of this shortcoming. I had quite a lot of ideas for making another car and all of them became a nightmare for me. I completely couldn't reconcile the quick-end bricks with the sensible look. For example, when building a BMW M3 E46, after using about 80% of the parts, I had only half the car. Fortunately, I quickly abandoned Shelby Cobra, discovering that someone had already built a pretty cool one. There was also supposed to be a Dodge Viper, but then it seemed impossible to reproduce them from the available bricks. I am currently doing a second try on the Viper and this time it should wiek. However, I was a bit disappointed that I couldn't make a constructing anything sensible. The smaller scale turned out to be beneficial. Instead of the standard width of 16 studs, I focused on something at 14, or maybe 12. I considered a few off-roaders and finally I choose Hummer H1. A supposedly smaller model should solve the limited supply of parts. Unfortunately not with the car body. Doors and root i was made from rest of scraps. On this scale, it was also a problem to mount a torsion axle. Copied one from set dropped out because it is too wide. I managed to slim it down a bit, but it had a negative impact on the stability of whole the structure, not to mention the visual values. I gave it up and ended up with a dummy engine and shock absorbers. The cabin is also quite conventional. Fortunately, the model itself resembles the original from the outside, and nobody has any problems with recognizing what kind of car it is. The whole thing is stable and the model can be moved forward and backward. Real level expert.

    [MOC] Dragon Hunter

    When it comes to weapons, my first association is chainsaw gun from Gears of War but inverted. I really loved sculpt like this one. Teeth and whole head looks dope.

    LEGO Creator 2022 - Rumors, Speculation, and Discussion

    Viking ship has already official images. Its another set reffering to old series, especially to historical. I hope there will be them more, like Wild West or Adventures.
  10. I'm not sure where i read it about this (probably that was post on instagram), but Eiffel tower will be bigger than colosseum. Maybe even more than 10k pcs. I'll try to find this info.

    [MOC] Airwolf Supercopter

    Hah you reminded me of the tv show. There was even a game for nes. Both of them was a little crapy but your model is just amazing. Great smooth shape.

    [MOC] [Instructions] Midi-Scale Venator - The Negotiator

    I saw it your model already in Flickr and looks majestic even though this is not my fav type of scale. I love how you use 1x1 tile with clip on the edge of lower hangar.

    Hello everyone :)

    I am Marcin and I live in Wrocław (Poland). I've been interested Lego since childhood, not counting the typical dark age, however in recent years I did not have the conditions to build. I have also been a member of Lugpol since 2007 with a few longer breaks. Now I decided to go back, starting the adventure with rebuilding a few sets and make a few digital projects. I have been browsing Eurobricks for many years, but now I have decided to join this huge community.
