  1. MOC: Pop Up Restaurant

    Thanks for the comments and suggestions. Yes, I was debating whether to include a front window for serving purposes, but my original intention was to mechanise it so that the toast rose and fell. It was geared down and used a large cam to control the movement, but sadly it only worked for a few cycles before it destroyed itself. The insides of the MOC still include the gearing, the motor and structure and I tied the support for that to the walls and so I don't have any room for an interior. Last night an alternative method of driving the toast occurred to me. I'll try that over the next few days and see if that's more robust.
  2. MOC: Pop Up Restaurant

    MOC: Pop Up Restaurant I had a vacant city block in my run down Lego town and I decided that a temporary restaurant would fit in the space nicely. And because I can resist a bad pun I thought that a good theme for a pop up restaurant would be one shaped like a toaster. So here's my Restaurant MOC. I hope you enjoy it! Criticism, ridicule and comments most welcome!
  3. MOC: Toontown Modulars

    MOC: Toontown Modulars I belong to Kansas City BrickLab and as part of our Who Framed Roger Rabbit display at Brickworld I contributed a couple of modulars. I wanted to build a series of cartoon-ey buildings for the Toontown area of the build. So, these are all sloping, non-parallel buildings that used Technic pins and bricks to hold the facade on at 'interesting' angles. I hope you like them. This one was based on a heavily modded Palace Theatre (that had already been morphed into a Discount Carpet warehouse http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/96512-mod-palace-carpets-for-all-your-flooring-needs/) And finally here's an image of Roger in the Kitchen If you'd like to see more images of the entire display then please head on over to https://www.flickr.com/groups/kcbricklab/pool/ More of my stuff and nonsense on https://www.flickr.com/photos/eurotrash48903/ Comments, criticism and ridicule most welcome!
  4. HA(ppy) (mo)UNT(ain) Abandoned Theme Park

    I was at Brickworld in Chicago with KC Bricklab's Who framed Roger Rabbit display. Your display was fantastic and you guys were worthy winners. Congratulations
  5. EB Xmas Raffle 2016 - Your ideal Snow entry thread

    Manatee A made good time swimming across the Atlantic and up the Missouri River. Thanks CopMike for organizing this!
  6. MOC: Foosball Table

    MOC: "Don't worry Lads. I'll get the ball" The Black Pearl was gathering dust so I decided to mod it into a MOC of a Clyde Puffer, but that wasn't much of a challenge and the end result looked underwhelming so I started looking at what else I could turn the Hull pieces into. Fifteen minutes later and we have a Foosball Table.
  7. MOC: Astrid and Associates Architecture firm

    Another stunning build from you! Clean and elegant with a great color-combo. Nice one.
  8. [MOD] Palace Cinema (10232) after the fire

    I like it! But then again I've always liked half-burned ruined Lego buildings and especially the Palace Cinema http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/96512-mod-palace-carpets-for-all-your-flooring-needs/&page=1
  9. EB Xmas Raffle 2016 - Your ideal Snow entry thread

    Thanks Copmike for organizing this again! [img=https://c6.staticflickr.com/6/5532/31117219245_879574624f_c.jpg] And clearly I'm struggling with embedding an image!
  10. MOC: Private Detective's Office

    Thanks for all the comments! [i edited the image to remove the distracting background]
  11. Film Noir We've all seen the films; a smokey set, a dame in distress, a henchman called Shuggsy, a hard drinking embittered detective with one foot either side of a fine line between the criminals and the police. Here's a MOC using black, white and grey pieces (and one tiny blue Technic pin holding the gun together.). I hope you enjoy it. Comments, criticism and ridicule most welcome.
  12. MOC: Scooby Doo Tiki Monster

    Here's the Tiki Monster from 'A Tiki Scare is No Fair'. Don't worry though - it was just the Journalist in a scary outfit who was trying to poach pearls. And he would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for those meddling kids.... Comments, criticism and ridicule most welcome.
  13. MOC: Bob's Burgers

    I've been on a Bob's Burger building kick for a while now and I have images and posts and reposts scattered all over the interweb so I thought I'd create a single thread for them all. I started with the titular restaurant and then quickly built the two adjacent buildings - Mort's Funeral Home and Butt Stuff Underwear Shop. These have already been shown in an existing thread in the Town Forum (but for the sake of completeness I've included them here) Then I built the Food Truck. Here's how they looks altogether during one of our LUGs displays. Complete with a cast of a bunch of rats and the collapsed power pole. Then I started on a Tina silhouette (and yes the wooden deck needed staining). Then I attempted a maxi-sized Louise and Tina. Here's Louise. I wasn't happy with Tina - she was too fragile and looked like a very poorly executed child's Toy and so I put her to one side for a while. Then it occurred to me! Why not embrace the craptitude and turn her into a Tina Inaction Figure complete with gaudy packaging. Comments & ridicule most welcome.
  14. Behind the Folding Fan

    Interesting roof technique - I hadn't seen that before.
  15. [MOC] Modular Palm House

    It looks excellent! Great job and it looks stunning in the display. I did have one idea about the roof though - have you considered building a SNOT curve (using various Curved elements attached to the plates/glass) for the edge of the roof to replicate the sinuous wall shape?
