  1. 1:3 7:1 13:1 14:1 Lots of cool models!
  2. This is a great model with many nice and realistic details! Extra thanks for sharing the car instructions!
  3. Hi, The OpenSource software BrickStock allows you to import set inventory lists from BrickLink (for official sets) and from LDraw files (which can be exported from your own design in LDD). You can then subtract the parts of another set from the ones of your model which leaves you with the missing pieces (ignoring negative numbers). Hope that helps!
  4. I'd like to present a small scale version of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City respectively of its (newer) LEGO rendition in the set 21035. My micro model is half the size and uses 228 pieces (vs. 744). Its similar in size to the old LEGO version (21004) but more detailed thanks to new parts and colors. This design is a small counterpart to its bigger and much more complex sibling I presented a few months ago, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. If you are interested in instructions for these and other models you can make a find on my web site (http://www.thilo-schoen.de/lego.html). Hope you like it!

    [MOC] History of Apple

    Nice Job(s)! The computer models are perfect, just the big white apple could use a round piece or two maybe. Supported!
  6. I found the file here but I'm not sure if it is of much use: /Users/<USERNAME>/Library/Application Support/LEGO Company/UnplaceableBricksDump.lxfml
  7. This is probably the most complex model I've designed (and built) up to now. The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is one of the most spectacular buildings of the recent decades. Its style of deconstructivism and seemingly random but also very organic curves make for a magnificent view. It was a real challenge to build this in LEGO. I decided to use white bricks for the titanium surface - metallic parts are too rare in LEGO and grey seems too dull for the highly reflective surfaces. The building is surrounded by water and some large works of art, most noticeable the tulips (represented by violet cherries in the model) and the puppy by Jeff Koons.

    [MOC] Dashing Banshee - YT-1300 Mod

    Thank you! I used the color Nougat/Flesh because it was the best one available in LDD to represent copper.
  9. Hello everyone, This is my design for the LEGO Rebrick Freighter Wars contest (building your own YT Corellian light freighter). Here's a link to the entry with additional pics: https://www.lego.com/en-us/rebrick/view-entry. The Dashing Banshee is named after the Corellian Banshee bird and upgraded with everything available in terms of speed and concealment. The YT-1300 light freighter was refitted to be used as a courier ship. It is equipped with technology to escape, elude and hide from any pursuer. Sporting no visible weaponry helps to keep a low profile. The model was designed from scratch in LDD and consists of 5173 parts. I went for a smooth design based on the original YT-1300 with some distinctive modifications. Hope you like it!

    [MOC] Dashing Banshee - YT-1300 Mod

    Thank you for your kind comments! There isn't that much to see in the interior. The core is a 16-sided circular polygonal frame build with locking hinges. The shell panels are clipped on (clips and plates with handles). Additionally, a technic frame connects the orthogonal sides and supports the bottom and top covers. Since I don't want to build it right now and it wasn't the focus of the competition I didn't spend a lot of time on the interior, so it's a bit rough now and probably would need some additional strengthening. Glad you like the colors, I spent some time to try out different combinations and find the best look! Also I wanted to try something different than the usual plate based construction and show less studs. So this is how the design evolved!

    REVIEW: Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum

    Well-done review for a very interesting set! The many curves and subtle details really make this model stand out. The "big change" seems to be that the base is formed by black plates directly at the bottom and not with dark grey plates one level above? That's probably because now there is also a light grey sidewalk level.

    MOC: Astrid and Associates Architecture firm

    Great design and colors! The ground floor windows are especially awesome.

    MOC: Tow truck Volkswagen Crafter

    Looks great and has a lot of functionality packed in a small model!
  18. The completion of the Elbe Philharmonic Hall in Hamburg was celebrated with a big opening concert and light show just a few days ago on January 11. Reason enough for me to design a small architecture style LEGO model (262 parts)! The building by Herzog & de Meuron is 108m high and unifies old and new architecture with a modern construction on top of an old warehouse brick building. It includes a concert hall, apartments and a hotel. It is build on a small peninsula of the Elbe River and is considered to be one of the largest and most acoustically advanced concert halls in the world. You can download the PDF instructions (for free) to build this model on my website http://www.thilo-schoen.de/lego.html. Hope you like it!

    MOC: Pixar Advent Calendar

    Nice! My favorites are the Pixar lamp (maybe the PIXAR letters could go with it?) and the little Wall-E.

    [MOC] Paris Skyline

    Great! I thought about doing a Skyline of Paris too after the one of Munich, but I can't see how it could get any better than this! :-)
  25. OK, the windmill is difficult but the house makes a nice MOC for in between. :-) Here you go: You can download the LDD file here (and expand it somewhat if you like): www.thilo-schoen.de/files/Netherlands.lxf
