  1. I find myself in a weird position at the moment that I'm forced to stay away from work and uni, something to do with the country being in lockdown due to Covid_19. What better a time to neglect what I should be doing and build Lego? Been a while! Here's a quick 1:1 scale Lego OM-1, for some contest where only 1 colour is allowed (the lens element is dark trans smoke or whatever that's called). For fun, the photo was taken with an OM lens. If I had time to wait for my brother to develop the film, woulda done it with the actual camera... Enjoy! David
  2. A quick quick build for the third week of the innovalug contest, the entry needs to sit on 4 studs or less. As a tele player myself, I thought I'd give the iconic butterscotch telecaster a try, heavily roadworn of course. Guitars are difficult to build at this scale I discovered. I've had more luck building Real guitars... Enjoy!

    All Terrain Heavy Transport Unit

    Essentially a glorified galactic dump truck 93% of the finacial year, but everynow and again the guys at MOONBASE 42 find some sort of constructive use for it... right now it's carrying a massive keg of Tangy Orange flavoured Spaceman-ale! (pictured) Everyone who didn't like mars mission clearly never had one of these. my favorite part is definitely the canopy, the rest of the build sorta just happened after that was made, I would definitely love to see it used in other contexts! (simon, start building that dropship!) One of several things that'll be featured in the Moonbase 42 Collab in Christchurch this year! Enjoy :)

    (MOC) 2780 moon rover

    When you're on the moon and adventure calls, what better way to answer than with the 2780 moon rover? Due to an unfortunate build of friction, the wheels take a lot to turn so good luck actually getting anywhere, but hey you'll look like a space explorer! More photos to come tomorrow on my facebook page, but first I need to sleep enjoy! David

    Home to Radagast the Brown wizard, this house was featured briefly in the film "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey". Only the front facade was view-able from the movie, the rest of the creation has been made up based on fan art and whatever I felt worked. With an estimated 20-25,000 bricks and a footprint of a 77cm square, this is by far my largest creation to date, and one of the most complex at that. I have previously built a rendition of the house, but much smaller, only the front facade and without the surrounding landscape, and I've always wished I had done a better job at it, so when I saw the opportunity to do it justice, I decided to go all out with it! This was built for and sponsored by The Christchurch Brick Show 2016, but will be displayed around New Zealand for the next year or so, until it hopefully finds a permanent home (It's too big to fit in my room... too big to fit through the door for that matter!) Some of the challenges I faced with this was the conflicting time with my (very intense) architecture studies, and creating it modular so that I could transport it... just making the house was a headache enough in itself! Check out my Facebook page for more of my creations or to get in touch, and my Flickr for the high resolution images! Hope you enjoy! David

    RPS - Mockingbird

    2 stubby wings, 2 killer thrusters, no landing gear and 2 ornamental lasers makes the 'Mockingbird' one of the cutest and least practical starfighters ever to leave the shipyards. Why should you invest in one? no idea. should you anyway? yes you should. First build of the year! yes the white stripe came from a lego sticker sheet :p a potential entry in my local lugs "spaceship SaceShip! SPACESHIP!?!" contest coming up, though I hve another one in the works that may take its place... Not really sure what I was doing with the presentation but it kinda looks nifty? I might change it if I decide I dislike it all of a sudden. enjoy! David

    Warlord Community Build

    Nocturnus community build time! Nocturnus is the dark part of Historica, and though historical records of Nocturnus’ past are scatted and inconsistent at best, it is widely known the various tribes and regions of Nocturnus were controlled by tyrannical warlords. This challenge is to show these legendary warlords from the past doing their thing! It requires you to build in all 3 of the following stages, once stage 1 is complete; you may go on to stage 2, etc. Here are the stages. Stage 1 16x16 vig - Champion Show us a warlord, give us his/her background and create a vig showcasing him/her! The focus of this stage is figure itself and attention to detail in a small setting. Custom and aftermarket parts are totally and completely allowed. Max size 16x16 or the equivalent 256 studs for those into irregular bases. Stage 2 32x32 scene - Gang Depict a scene of your champion and a gang carrying out mischief! Will they be ambushing travelers? Looting the rich? Looting the poor? Show us how bad your gang can get! This stage gives you a bit more freedom, carrying on the focus from stage 1 with composition and ideas beginning to play a part. Max size 32x32, or the equivalent 1024 studs for irregular bases Stage 3 Unlimited scene - Raid/siege Now show us who’s boss! Take your champion and set their armies free! Show a great battle from the past that really made a name for your warlord. Some ideas include a great siege on a castle, raiding a rival’s villages, or using your loot to buy new friends! It’s really your choice! There’s heaps of freedom in this one, no size limit or restrictions, just make sure that it give your character the look of a warlord. Once all 3 are completed you will receive the title "Legendary Warlord".

    Eldorado Outpost

    Inspired by set 6276 Eldorado fortress, by designer Daniel August Krentz, who passed away last week. Was started some months ago as an entry to my local lugs 'classic set redux' challenge, but my course got in the way and I didn't get round to finishing it. Not too much special in techniques and part usage (the one bit of NPU isn't actually visible in the photo) but some cool colours I think work quite well going on, hope you enjoy! David

    Neo Classic Rover and Starfighter

    tenuous connection is the one unfortunately, I'm not quite technic savvey enough yet to get working suspension in such a tight space! Thanks though, and yes it is very much swoosh-able :)

    The Stargazer

    Yeah I'm still a castle nut guys, I'm not completely lost to space ;) The Mystic Isles of Avalonia house many diverse persons, creatures and landscapes. Wonderful Wallace, Brother of Senneck and Harry the Hallucinating Healer, is one of them. He lives in solitude in the middle of a small cluster of islands in the center of the isles. Unlike his elder and younger siblings, Wallace has deviated from potions and other magic, and found his love in astronomy. He spends his days charting the skies, bartering with the local fishermen, and smoking pipe-weed. Also like his brothers, he has an incredibly awesome beard, which he takes great pride in. potentially more pride than what he has in his astronomical discoveries. Hey guys! Here is my main exhibit for the Christchurch brick show this weekend! it's been an interesting build, my original plan had been different, but then lugbulk didn't show up as early as i'd hoped so it changed :p the roof was a bit of a pain, but i'm pretty happy with the result. I had planned for a different colourscheme on the ground, but this worked too, when bulk arrives I guess I'll just have to build another moc with that scheme ;) Now all I need is for it not to be completely obliterated on the way down to Christchurch! Come see it in the weekend! hope you all enjoy! This build would not have been possible without the support from the coolest canadiasian in the world. you know who you are, and everyone who knows him should know too. Thanks so much Mr Liu. David

    Eldorado Outpost

    Thank you everyone for your kind words, and the front page! In regards to the flag, after quite a bit of digging I did find my old large one, and despite its severe yellowed discolouring (it's aged like a fine milk you might say ) it does look way better, have made that change for when displaying at cons.
