  1. A Peculiar Estalagem da D. Gertrudes 1 by Luis Baixinho, on Flickr After the Mars Rover I was planning to build a fantastic/medieval MOC. Due to the lack of parts, I postponed this project and went ahead with this one. The idea was even to make a small inn of an unusual shape on an island. The main inspiration of the idea (and not the construction itself, since the result was to be quite different) came from a Miyasaki film, Porco Rosso. I liked the concept of "house-island" so much that I intend to return to the topic briefly. A Peculiar Estalagem da D. Gertrudes 2 by Luis Baixinho, on Flickr The construction process was quite linear as I was not interested in abusing with advanced techniques. I wanted attention to focus on the MOC itself and not the way I did it. I was building over several days without any great hurry and, amazingly, I just had to make a big change that led me to "split in half" the MOC to replace a part. Most of the details came naturally, always with some care so as not to break the apparent peace of the place and preserve a timeless air. A Peculiar Estalagem da D. Gertrudes 3 by Luis Baixinho, on Flickr A Peculiar Estalagem da D. Gertrudes 4 by Luis Baixinho, on Flickr ps. I don't know if this is the best board for this MOC, since the era is historical but not defined. The Moderators can change it if you feel better.

    [MOC] Mars Rover

    Build something Martian? Humm, I had never thought about it. But it is still an interesting suggestion. Mainly because it could go in unconventional ways, something like the Bradbury's Martian Chronicles.

    Never saw one of that. Seems very interesting, thank you. Thank you. The cockpit part appears in this set: 60225: Rover Testing Drive I definitely want to do more MOCs on this theme (I even have several Vitruvian tiles), however at this moment I don't have anything planned.

    Thank you. The cockpit and an image from a boardgame (here) was the main starting points of this MOC. Normally I build small things, maybe because i loved to play LEGO in the 80s :D Life on Mars was one of my first loved themes after my dark ages. I'm trying build some vehicles and structures with the Vitruvian logo. Thank you.

It has some features like the robotic arm, steerable lights, interior access, engine access, etc. Hope you like it.
