  1. Hi everybody, today I present you a series of small animals, which some of you might have seen on my flickr photostream already. The idea for these little mocs was born just by chance and I think especially younger kids will love it. By using less bricks I kept the models simple, but tried to capture the real things as effectively as possible. Here we go: That's it for the moment... don't know, if it's to be continued! Feel free to leave a comment and thanx for your interest! So long, Jens
  2. Hey People! After a longer stage of inactivity on EB I present you my latest MOC. This microscale model is my execution of the world-famous statue of christ in Rio de Janeiro. It's also well-known as "Cristo Redentor". Though the model consists of only 122 parts, it took me a couple of weeks to get over it! But in the end I made it and here is the result: I'm very curious about your opinion. So feel free to leave your comments! Thx & so long, Jens

    [MOC] In nomine patris

    Hey everybody, today I'm comin' up with my latest creation, which is equally my second moc of a church. My 1st one was built in 2013 and it was designed as a mini modular. This one is much bigger, but it's also executed in microscale: You may find some similarities to any real examples of archtecture, but there is no original one for it - it's a freestyle model. The model consists of round about 3.500 pieces and overall it took me around 9 months to get it complete. In this case I could'nt resist, doing a little photo editing, to get an old-styled look ... ... and when it's getting dark, I turn on the interior light : That's it for now. So, feel free to leave any comment and tell me, what you think about it! Thx & so long, Jens

    [MOC] In nomine patris

    Yes of course, that was me! No, I think that the the tan macarones in comparison actually got a bit cheaper. I paid round about 0,27 EUR per unit (on BL) and for this model I needed 32 pieces. However, I'd like to thank you everybody again for your kind comments and your smashing feedback - it means a lot to me!! Thx & so long, Jens

    [MOC] In nomine patris

    First of all I'd like to thank you everybody for your kind words!! I'm very proud of being front-paged with this model and all the positiv feedback on EB and elsewhere on the i-net is really stunning! @Flea: I think, you've already seen a rear side photo. The 3rd picture in my presentation is taken from the back! Thanks again guys & brick on!

    [MOC] Cristo Redentor - Rio, Brazil

    Thanks Eggolot! @rodiziorobs: Thanks for your suggestion! A german LEGO-mate suggested, to use the screwdriver tool, which is also a good idea in my eyes: http://www.bricklink...D=86&itemID=767 But I think, I'm gonna leave it well enough alone, especially it was posted on TBB a few days ago. So, I think the technic pins were the right choice! Thx & greets, Jens

    [MOC] Cristo Redentor - Rio, Brazil

    Thank you, guys! I'm happy you like it! Which parts would you suggest to use as hands? Thx & so long, Jens
  9. Eurobricks and Rebrickable were challenged by LEGO to make alternate models for current year city sets. The builds had to only use the pieces in available in the official LEGO model, be made in LDD, digitized, tested in real brick and be a model a 7-10 year old could build!! I received set 60004 "Fire Station" This is a big set with more than 700 pieces. With it's great quantity of red parts I decided to build some alternate "fire stuff". Here is what I have executed the last two weeks: Alternate Fire Truck Alternate Fire Station Alternate Ensemble Rendering of the Ensemble Thx for watching & so long, Jens
  10. Hello Everybody! About 2,5 years ago I created my last (classical) LEGO Architecture model. Inspired by the inclusion of my MetLife Building model in Mike Doyle's Beautiful LEGO 2, I finally executed another architecture MOC. For sure the great reference of Spencer_R was an inspiration as well. Here is my execution of Chicago's Lake Point Tower: Find more pictures on my flickr photostream and feel free to leave your comments! Thx & so long, Jens

    Congrats to all the winners and thanks a lot to all, who made this great competition gonna happen - great event, guys!! In my humble opinion an announcement of that initial shortlist would have been nice, though.
  12. Don't know, if it's already stated anywhere: How many entries will be placed on that shortlist to be jugded by the LEGO experts?

    Contest Turtle Contest - Entry Thread

    The "Sea Cop Turtle" is my 1st entry in this great competition: Check out my flickr photostream to find another picture of this creature. Good luck to all participants!
  16. Yeah, right and that's why I asked for it. Others would be happy about it as well, I guess ... I'm looking forward to see your decision ( ) soon!
  17. Congrats to the winners! You guys did a great job and I'm happy a german compatriot won the micro category - well done t-brick! Thank you everybody voting for #20 (micro cat.) - - and off course many thanks to EB for organizing this great challenge, it was really fun to participate!! No problem in my eyes, moreover it was pointed out at the very beginning of the contest! But, in which cases/competitions are those special tags (icons) like "MOC Expert", "LDD Builder", ... awarded to top ranking user profiles? It would be nice, to get one in this case!!

  19. My dream home is that kind of baroque architecture's building, you see below. It's a (my) manor house and I'd really like to live there. I imagine to have plenty of rooms with high stuccoed ceilings inside. Outside a large garden (in this case limited to 30x30 studs ) with trimmed hedges and of course a fountain. With my entry I focused on the execution of the exterior view. So I did no interior which especially is caused by the complex construction of the facade respectively the doors and windows. Anyway - I hope you like it though! First of all I give you some LDD screenshots of the model. I think I can also uplaod some renderings the next few days. Edit: Here are some renderings of the model: micro_manor_house.lxf
  20. Thanks for your quik answer! Here is what I found about "midi scale": "Midi-scale sets are sets that are between miniature and minifigure scale. As such, the sets do not include minifigures, but have considerably more details than miniature models." Source: I only want to get sure, that this scale, which is definitely smaller than minifig scale, accords to rules for the 'micro-build' category! Can you give me green light?
  21. I totally agree in this case: Though we don't have to order missing parts, it would be very nice, to have a few weeks more for working on our digital concepts, yes! Any way - I got a question regarding the category "micro": I'm a bit confused about the scale of "micro". Do you differentiate between "nano", "micro" and "midi"? Or does every scale, which is smaler than minifig-scale and not larger than 30x30 studs base accord to the rules for that category? Great contest by the way!!

  23. Hello Everybody! After four weeks of hard work on the design, some delivery delays and the final construction, I'd like to present you with my creation of a traditional german christmas pyramid. Here we go with a few pictures: I'm particularly pleased with the gear mechanism at the back of the pyramid, that allows it to spin! I'll try to post a video in the next few days, to show that function. Find two more pictures of the model on my flickr photostream. Good luck to every participant, thanks a lot to EB for organizing this great competition and merry christmas to all of you! So long, Jens
