  1. For me when a model is finished i am done with it and glad that i only build the last years only in commission and never got a change to upgrade my models.
  2. MOC/WIP Iskes Towage & Salvage Telstar build in scale 1:40

    For this ship I have chosen to make the superstructure with wheelhouse modular to the hull. Because there is also a visible engine room at once coming. Do I have to be able to access it.
  3. Dear friends, I got a new commission and is a tug again for the tug owner Iskes Towage & Salvage and is a EDDY design tug. The scale will be around the 1 to 40, with lighting and an open visible engineroom. This is again a strange tug with two bow's and two enginerooms, also the trusters on this ship stands on the front and end of her. I started on the superstructure and hope you will like again the WIP stages.

  4. MOC/WIP Iskes Towage & Salvage Telstar build in scale 1:40

    The week was very busy with new requests, quotes and also a repeat project for a set of Royal IHC. Today I was finally able to continue with the tug, Telstar for Iskes Towage and I made the lighting of the superstructure and was again a lot of fiddling and soldering. Because the real ship as the first tug has the gangway lights with built-in LED spots that are under the railing, that I have been able to convert a nice translation into LEGO. Tomorrow I am going to work on the mast and the work lighting and hope that I have enough parts in my house to continue well. IMG_7548 by VFracingteam, on Flickr IMG_7546 by VFracingteam, on Flickr

  11. [REVIEW] 42077: Rally Car

    Great review Milan and very good pictures. I have seen the A, B and Pauls C model at @JunkstyleGio place and are indeed big, good looking and specialy for kids, great for playing and for a € 90 to €100 good as parts pack. What i can't tell if it's was fun to build, because i did not build any official set in years.

    I can't still belive it , all that efford you put into your builds buddy.
  13. MOC/WIP Fairplay IX en XI TUGBOAT in scale 1/60

    Many thanks for your great and kind words. I learn so much from every trip onboard a vessel i have build and this trip was no exception. The captain Henk and i had many questions and conversations how the real ship works and he wanted to know how i have build it and translated in Lego. He have told me that all the 4 captains on the IX and XI have follow the progress from the begin and where overwhelmed what's possible with Lego in scaled modeling. Because it was so good weather on Saturday, that between the towing jobs i stand on the deck and enjoy the view and weather and my father take some picture of me i did't know. 30265022_218577225562364_6483856889749700608_o by VFracingteam, on Flickr 30516617_218577965562290_5420570188674236416_o by VFracingteam, on Flickr

  15. MOC/WIP Fairplay IX en XI TUGBOAT in scale 1/60

    Thank you Buddy for your great comment. Today me and my dad got a great trip on the Sister vessel Fairplay XI in Rotterdam as thanks for building the LEGO model of the Fairplay IX. We wanted thanks the Captain Henk and his great crew for the great day, good polska lunch and nice weather. What the day makes for me complete, that the other tug which also assited, i build 3 years ago the Brent from the Iskes Towage company.Today the tugs have to assist two towing jobs, with one bulk carrier and one Maersk smaller container ship.This is what my hobby and job makes me complete happy, that i can also see what i must build can do in real and that not only the head of board, but also the crews onboard loved the details of my builds.

  18. MOC/WIP Iskes Towage & Salvage Telstar build in scale 1:40

    Thanks, and because LEGO builds are a part of my proffession, that i don't have the time to take a break. Also my orderbook is already booked complete full to the end of the year.
  19. MOC/WIP Iskes Towage & Salvage Telstar build in scale 1:40

    Even for me i got boring to build tugs Ludo. Lucky this tug have a real challange below the waterline a got two open enginerooms. The next commission is lucky not a tug again and will be my biggest ship ever.
  20. [MOC] Mack LMSW - GVB 1:16

    Amen to that Eric.
  21. Wow, what a stunning creation you have build again. Love the effort you put into her.
  22. Finished MOC Fairplay IX tugboat in scale 1:50

    Thanks Bart for your great comment and the smaller harbour tugs are more difficult to build than the bigger offshore tugs. Details are the most important thing on a tug and thank you for the nice words. I have build in the past big offshore tugs, but the ALP Striker is not from me, but a digital design from Konajra and know that he have no interest to build her in real.
  23. Dear Friends, I build this commissioned model for the Tug owner Fairplay in Hamburg (Germany) in 150 hour and just above 12500 parts and is 60 cm long x 28 cm wide and 56 cm high. Many thanks for the great reactions at the WIP stage and i hope you like the progress how to build. I have great fun to build her and their are so many SNOT techniques that 85% is build side ways, also create all the details and lighting at such small space, was great to do.
