    [Moc] Looking for the Holy Chalice

    I'd ditch the custom parts and the white fuzz, but beyond that its a great looking MOC. Steve

    EB Xmas Raffle 2017 - Winners per day calendar

    Dang, I don't remember what prize I won and don't think I sent that info with my address. More of a surprise when it comes in the mail, I guess. Steve

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    I wonder if you could put it with the Parisian restaurant to lessen the impact of that weird stair. Steve

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    A lot of people don't like the 1950s US style diner motif. I am not particularly fond of it either. I don't, however, think it is entirely out of place in the modular street. The time periods are played pretty fast and loose in the modulars, so you can just assume it is a 50s nostalgia style theme restaurant put into a run down building. Steve

    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

    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
  11. Quite lovely. I am definitely going to appropriate some of those details for my Japanese castle I'm working on. Steve

    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

    Well... $#!&. Guess I'm not going to go true minifig scale... Steve

    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
