    [MOC] The peculiar inn of Mrs. Gertrudes

    Thank you Louis and LEGO Train.
  2. 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.

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.

    [MOC] Mars Rover

    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.

    [MOC] Mars Rover

    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.

    [MOC] Casca

    Casca (1) by Luis Baixinho, on Flickr I made this flying boat to a challenge at LUG Brasil (you can read about it - in portuguese - here). Basically said to make a MOC inspired by the draws of flying boats by Ian McQue. Casca (2) by Luis Baixinho, on Flickr More two pictures in this gallery.

    [MOC] Byblios

    Byblios (02) by Luis Baixinho, on Flickr This is Byblios, the house of knowledge in Ahrídus, Elgarvel. I made this MOC for Lusitanis, an activity of my LUG (Comunidade 0937) similar to the Guilds of Historica. Byblios (01) by Luis Baixinho, on Flickr A google translate of the portuguese description: In this building works the mythical library with the same name where scholars of all Lusitanis research on various subjects and write books. Because of its functions, Byblios has always been a haven of peace and has never raised a gun within its walls. Its origins are lost in time, but have performed some research on the appearance of this strange building .. but with little fruit. It is known that the building was built using the stones coming from strange ruins nearby; the first structure was a great tower of square base and later that other structures were added making the building a style amalgam; The choice of this location due to a small supply of water which is at the center of the tower; if it suspects that the construction of the building was already thought to his current role as the desert climate helps in conservation of books and papyri.
