    The Man With The Golden Gun

    Thanks. I am trying to turn this into a series. I will run out of lettered tiles though
  2. After "You Only Live Twice" I am following up with the next JB micro - featuring: Scaramanga's flying car Scaramanga's junk James Bond's airplane Those famous rock islands... The movie was released in 1974. For some reason the villain had a car that could turn into a plane. The hero did not have anything that nice... Well he had this "standard" plane. And then the survivors sail away with that junk (is it really spelt this way?). Hope you enjoy this!

    You Only Live Twice

    Thanks. The vehicles were challenging. (And they might be a bit too big for the rest of the scene... )

    You Only Live Twice

    I tried to shoot some, but they did not turn out well. YOLT is a classic Bond movie but very flawed in terms of the storytelling... Just like the latest Star Wars flicks Anyway, I still have a crush on the 1960's Bond films, they had some sort of "style". Next? Let's see Thanks. Once you get to see the movie, you will understand those 4+1 helicopter thingies As by 1960s standards, the film is "high paced". They needed that to cover the plot holes.. On the other hand: When do you get to see a villain located in a vulcano base? (Yes, ok, Austin Powers maybe...)

    [ESL-FB] Cookie's* place

    Nice place! (... except for that one special animal..) (And good, that there is no confusion with "Captain Cookie" ) All the best to you for 2020!

    You Only Live Twice

    You're right. Unfortunately the series seemed to have started and ended with the Aston Martin. Thanks for your comments and your decision. Tracey Island - let's see. I have a few more Bond sets on my mind

    You Only Live Twice

    Oh, right. How could I forget that? Still, to me it does not feel like a licensed theme. Let the moderators decide. Thanks for the positive comment. Did I mention that the MOC is partially lit by some light bricks hidden underneath?

    You Only Live Twice

    Thanks I started with the one helicopter in the volcano base and then it seemed to be better to have four of them. ? James Bond is not a TLG license theme.

    You Only Live Twice

    I've been thinking about doing a James Bond MOC for some time. And Blofeld's vulcano from the 1967 "You Only Live Twice" adventure was my first choice. Yet I feared that it might get too large, take too long and might turn our less interesting than expected. So I decided to try it out on a micro scale: That has worked out quite well IMHO (I don't think I would have had the bricks for a minigure-scale MOC.) So here are the things required for the set: The vulcano base, the four black helicopters, the spaceship (it should have been silver but red looked better amongst all the light and dark grey), the giant world map, the funny cars, ... Blofeld's private cave rooms. And there is "Little Nellie", of course. ... and there is also that cave entrance. I am quite happy with the result. I hope you like it too. (Pictures can be found on flickr.)
  10. Marvellous, both in its grand scale but also in the many details, especially the automobiles. That is a great start for a new member here at Eurobricks. I hope we do not have to wait 18 months to see your next creation.

    Castle Birlinghoven

    I had to switch the browser. Chrome is fine, my firefox doesn't like those picture links anymore.

    [OL-FB] 36-gun frigate "le Hussard"

    I don't think this is mediocre by all means - or were you just fishing for compliments?

    Castle Birlinghoven

    Thanks! I have used new sticker sheets and spent some time in cutting our those little pieces... As to the event: Most of my photos unfortunately haven't turned out too well. So maybe, the other members of the pirate gang will put up something. Nevertheless, here are a few links/pics: Thanks man!

    Castle Birlinghoven

    This is my attempt to MOC an existing castle (the small one of the two in Birlinghoven, Germany). This is how the castle was presented at BrickMania Antwerpen earlier this month. The windows have been created with the help of many many small stickers/decals... Have a nice weekend! CB
