  1. This is a container crane which can load freight from train waggons onto ships. It is part of a larger dockyard which I am in the process of building. More photos on my Flickr Page.

    [MOC] Neo FX Star Patroller

    I haven't posted anything on Eurobricks for quite a while (Sorry!)– I've moved from building mainly Town and City models to Space models over the last couple of years. This is a re-interpretation of the 6931 FX Star Patroller from 1985, but quite a bit larger and in the 'Neo-Classic Space' style. Neo FX Star Patroller by Alec Hole, on Flickr The spacecraft was completed just over a year ago: there are some more photos in this Flickr album and I've just got round to writing a blog post with some more information.

    [MOC] Neo FX Star Patroller

    LittleWorlds, ikba, BrickJagger -- thanks very much! BrickCurve -- thank you, yes it is swooshable. I did quite a lot of work to make the structure strong enough. You can pick it up by the neck close to the rear section and carry it. Most of the weight is in the rear section, so the neck is designed to support the front section. The angled wings on the rear section are braced underneath so they don't flap about. The most fragile part is the blue tower at the back, if you tip the ship from side to side too quickly it can unclip and fall off, but apart from that she is pretty solid. I forgot to mention the dimensions of the ship: 88cm long x 50cm wide x 31cm tall, I believe this counts as a 100 stud 'SHIP' although it was originally intended to be a medium-sized model.

    MOC Enlarged Maersk Ship

    Here is an enlarged Maersk Ship which carries containers from the Maersk train. It also fits minifigures on the bridge. Maersk Ship 11 by hhcBrick, on Flickr Maersk Ship 7 by hhcBrick, on Flickr More about the build on my Blog.

    MOC Enlarged Maersk Ship

    Thanks! As I said earlier, I have 3 Maersk ships and some additional parts, but I was able to build another smaller model using all these pieces. You might be able to get away with 2 Maersk ships, some extra Maersk blue parts and some extra windows and white bricks for the superstructure.

    MOC Enlarged Maersk Ship

    Thanks! I used 3 sets, plus a Bricklink order, but I was also able to make a smaller ship that carries classic 4 x 8 containers from these pieces. I think it might be possible to make the large ship from 2 sets but you would need some extra 1 x 10 Maersk blue bricks.

    Thanks very much everyone!
  11. A few weeks ago I took part in a Brickish Association display at the Egham Royal Show in the UK. I've posted some of my harbour MOCs before, but here are some pictures of the harbour display featuring some classic Town sets as well. There are more pictures and descriptions on my Blog.

    Voyage to Planet X

    That's super! Lovely retro feel. Hope you'll do some more images/MOCs in this style. An evil professor would be great.

    Q's Eternity

    Nice ship, it has a very purposeful look about it. Not sure I’d like it dropping out of the sky at me!

    [MOC] Executor-Class Super Star Destroyer

    Amazing model! This is one of my favourite Star Wars ships, it's nice to see such a good Lego model of it-- if only TLG would release it!

    MOC Catamaran

    The robot has been working hard recently so he decided to go on holiday. After applying anti-rust coating he is enjoying a relaxing cruise on the new catamaran. He is lounging on a sunbed at the back, and while he won't be getting a tan he can top up his batteries using his solar cells. More harbour creations on my Blog.

    MOC Catamaran

    Thanks for all your kind comments! Cadder: glad it looks realistic to a professional! mookage: If I get hold of a series 2 minifigure lifeguard she'll probably be too busy tanning on the sun deck to keep an eye on safety!

    MOC - Target Country store

    The interior is looking good. I haven't come across this creation until today, I really like how you have done the curved glass windows.

    MOC Catamaran

    Thanks everyone! I will try and post a picture of the interior at some point, it's not that interesting, lots of seats and a console for the captain and crew.

    MOC: 4554 Train Station

    Here's a version of the classic 4554 station in medium blue and white. I've doubled it up and it hinges open to access the waiting room, ticket booths and first floor café (Replacing the control room in the original.)

    MOC: 4554 Train Station

    Thanks for all your comments. There is one area of empty space in the station, due to the fact I haven't finished the vending area which serves people outdoors and indoors. This will probably turn out similar to the vending bar in the original set. I notice that the title of my post has changed from 'MOD' to 'MOC', which is very flattering, but I don't know if this counts as a 'MOC' as it is a redesign rather than a completely new creation. Cheers Alec

    MOC: Volvo excavator and Mercedes truck

    Great models, I like how you've made the wing mirrors on the truck, and the ridging on the tipper.

    MOC: Garbage truck

    Nice truck! I like all the detailing, like the spare tyre and steps.
