  1. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, thousands of immigrants in pursuit of the American dream moved inland to the west. They loaded their few possessions into bulky horse-drawn wagons and set out on the arduous journey with their families. On their way, they encountered deserts and mountain passes, wild animals and Indian tribes lay in wait for them. And very often such wagons became the coveted prey of bandits. There was only one law in force here: the right of the strong, or "Rule of the gun," as the locals called it. In the event of an attack, one could only rely on the strength and endurance of the horses, on the carbine, and a little bit of luck.

    [MOC] Bodyguard

    Princess Kaguya is the daughter of the head of a powerful corporation and a member of an influential clan. She goes to a closed high school where no one knows about her background.A cyborg was assigned to escort and guard her. In this model, artificial intelligence (AI) was replaced by the formatted consciousness of a living person. It is believed that human intelligence shows better cognitive abilities compared to AI, and formatting saves it from unnecessary memories and emotions, which makes cyborgs of this type ideal machines. As a result of the error, the formatting did not occur completely and the cyborg "remembers" his past life as Ryuichi the leader of the youth gang who died in a street fight. An emotional connection is established between the girl and her bodyguard.Terrorists kidnap a girl to put pressure on her father. At the same time, the cyborg bodyguard was seriously damaged. When the kidnappers decide to destroy him, the princess shields him with her body and threatens to kill herself if anything happens to him."I'll be your bodyguard from now on, Ryuichi..."

    This MOC is one of the most popular on my flickr. Many people asked for the instructions of the warrior. At last I have restored the design and make the instructions.

    MOC Elf Archer

    I continue to build a series of toy soldiers. Meet the new figure - Elf Archer. Elf Archer by Dmitriy and Anna, on Flickr In the beginning, the hero did not have a concrete prototype. But during the construction process, it began to seem to me more and more that it was Legolas. So I believe that you like this tribute to The Lord of the Rings trilogy. At last I would like to try some new experience and have made instructions. I think that this archer will look great on your shelf and you will have some pleasant time building it and learning new techniques. The instructions are avaliable on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-47916/vir-a-cocha/elf-archer/

Let it be some sort of costume decoration Good qwestion @Anio thank you! The light yellow will be the nice fit for the hair! The light gray color was determined by the use of this part as the braid
  15. This MOC is based on my favorite winter cartoon “Father Frost and the Gray Wolf” One of the most memorable episodes when farther Frost easily slides on skis through the winter forest. And to make it more interesting, I decided to build not just a figure, but a kinetic sculpture. In general, kinetic art in Lego is very widely represented and I have long wanted to try myself in this area. After a short search I have found skier by JK Brickworks However, the style of movement of the Canadian skier is fundamentally different from the style of father Frost. The first one's movement of the arms and legs is short and rhythmic, then the second one's is more in amplitude. And this means that it is impossible to take and repeat the finished mechanism - it is necessary to develop a fundamentally different way. After several experiments, I drew attention to this detail Fortunately, I had two of them, and the mechanism acquired its final form: Father Frost: Kinetic Sculpture by Dmitriy and Anna, on Flickr Here, the rotation of the handle, through a system of gears, sets in motion the elementary mechanism for converting rotational motion into translational, which moves the rack and pinion gear. The main idea is to synchronize two racks through a gear, which simultaneously transmit rotation to the upper gear system, simulating the movement of the hands. Gear ratios were selected in such a way as to closely match the movements of the hero. Below you can see the result. Father Frost: Kinetic Sculpture by Dmitriy and Anna, on Flickr To hide the mechanism, the figure is placed on a stand decorated with a primitive Christmas tree and a gift. A figure of a Snowman is attached to the pen. In the cartoon, he worked as a driver for father Frost, but here he “sets in motion” the sculpture. Father Frost: Kinetic Sculpture by Dmitriy and Anna, on Flickr Below is a video of the sculpture, the music is taken from the original cartoon.

    Chort

    Chort by Dmitriy and Anna, on Flickr Chort is considered to be a demon of total evil, with a human body, goat legs and a beard, covered with black hair, he has horns and a long tail. These demons have tremendous magical powers. Their favorite activity is to seduce people and drive them crazy, forcing them to renounce righteous life. Chorts rule people when they decide to act dishonestly. Gambling, alcohol, drugs, cigarettes - these are the tools that evil use to destroy a person. Ultimately, the goal of the chort is to get the human soul. For this, a contract is made and signed in blood. According to the contract, the demon fulfills a certain desire of a person; in return, the person voluntarily surrenders his soul after a certain time has passed. In the performance of their part of the contract, the demons show remarkable ingenuity and talent. They are sensitive to human weaknesses and are able to grope an approach to any person, offering wealth and power to ones, health and longevity to the seconds, fame and recognition to the others. There is no way to terminate the contract with the chort. Usually they are arriving to the people in a state of altered consciousness when the human mind is most vulnerable. Therefore, to avoid encounters with demons will only help a healthy lifestyle and the rejection of alcohol and drugs.

  21. Christmas Eve. ... The opposite of New Years: It is the time of year for family reunions, for Yule logs and trees blazing for gifts, and for the eating of special foods and the drinking of special drinks. It is the personal time, rather than the social time; it is the time of focusing upon self and family, rather than society at large; it is the time of rimed windows, star-coated angels, of burning bushes, captured rainbows, of fat Santas with two pairs of trousers (because the youngsters who sit upon their laps are easily awed); and the time of cathedral windows, blizzards, carols, bells, manger scenes, season's greetings from those far removed (even if they live but a short distance away), of broadcast Dickens and holly and candles, of poinsettia and evergreen, of snowbanks, firs, spruces, pines, of the Bible and Medieval England, of "What Child is This?" and "Oh Little Town of Bethlehem," of the birth and the promise, the light in the darkness; the time, and the time to be, the feeling before the realization, the realization before the happening, the trafficking of red and green, the changing of the year's guard, of tradition, loneliness, sympathy, empathy, sentimentality, singing, faith, hope, charity, love, desire, aspiration, fear, fulfillment, realization, faith, hope, death; a time of the gathering together of stones and the casting away of stones, of embracing, getting, losing, laughing, dancing, mourning, rending, silence, speaking, death, and not speaking. It is a time to break down and a time to build up, a time to plant, and a time to pluck that which is planted... Roger Zelazny

    MOC: Hussar

    Thank you! Glad that you like it! Thanks! To be honest I have a couple of tan skeletons but can't remember where I've got them. May be you mean pelisse, a similar coat as dolman but with fur trimming, usually worn slung over the left shoulder. In the base I have used brackets like this.
