  1. Land of Adventure

    I think I must have been unclear. I understand why you did not use slopes. I was curious about the angle of the slopes. It looks not as steep as if you stacked brick on top of brick and then put tiles on the brick. Particularly it looks like there is a bend in the angle on the back corner. Is that just an illusion of the photography? Steve
  2. Land of Adventure

    Very nice. Your pyramid looks like it has a smaller slope. Is that right or just an illusion from the angle of the photo? Do the spears in the trap room move up and down? If not, motorizing them could be a cool effect. Do you have any more photos of the interior? I love the sphinx over the entry to the pyramid. Just a minor nitpick -and I might be wrong about it- but I do not think the Egyptians had arch technology. Steve
  3. Quite lovely. I am definitely going to appropriate some of those details for my Japanese castle I'm working on. Steve
  4. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I saw a post that they are re-releasing the CC and GG, but I can't find it again. *EDIT*: Never mind, it appears to be a false rumor, now that I found it again and was able to actually read it. Steve
  5. Scale Modeling Building Help

    Well... $#!&. Guess I'm not going to go true minifig scale... Steve
  6. Scale Modeling Building Help

    This may have been answered already, but I am curious, assuming a minifig is a properly scaled down person (which I know it isn't), if you scaled up one brick to human size, how tall would that one brick be? What I am really trying to get at, in the end, is: how many bricks high would a pyramid have to be to be a minifig scale replica of the Great Pyramid (~146 meters high)? Steve
  7. Ice Bear Train

    I would lower the head and make the claws right beneath the head, like a cow catcher. Steve
  8. Ice Bear Train

    I was thinking more steam train. But what I was really getting at is the front is really blocky. Steve
  9. Ice Bear Train

    I think you need to make it more Train shaped around the front. Keep the bear head, but fit it into a more Train like shape. Steve
  10. I wish I was better at photographing large MOCs, but here is the gallery: The pyramid is 60 bricks tall. The table I was given for the display was uneven, so it looks like there is a big crack in the pyramid. It actually fits together nicely with technic pins though. Be sure to check out the gallery, as the pyramid has an interior. Steve
  11. I've been working on a new large Egypt layout. I plan to debut the first draft of it at a community Halloween party on Friday, where I should have some better pictures. In the meantime, here is a teaser picture. Steve
  12. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I would love a museum. Or a library. Or hospital. Or school. Or anything really... Steve
  13. The Greatest CMF 2 (Revenge of the Ninjago) ROUND 3

    I wonder if you should find a metric to take the increasing cost of the figures into account? Steve
