  1. Hi all, The model is Messerschmitt Bf109, the most numerous German fighter in WW2, if not the most famous. I designed it from scratch and did not take features from other creators' work. I spent about 7 years designing and financing this project, and I finally finished it last year. Thanks to the work-from-home policy I don't have to drive as much, and I have more free time to share my creations with the world. You will see that some parts are in the new bluish grey while some parts are in the old grey. There are different patterns of 1x2 jumpers. A few parts even show cracks. This is the testament to the time spent to build this up, so I decided not to replace them with new parts in perfect condition. The 1x2x3 train door pieces and the 1x1 round plate with tow ball don't come in the new light bluish gray anyway. The building technique I used to make the aerodynamic fuselage is similar to the 3D wooden puzzle made out of interlocking thin boards. You can see the vertical and horizontal layers coming together to form a pixelated curvature. The width of the fuselage starts in 4 studs and reduces to 3 studs, then 2 studs, squeezing all the way to 1 stud. The internal connection is achieved with technic pieces, locking hinges and clips. I use it a LOT in my models because it allows you to add complicated painting schemes to the surface while maintaining the correct form and structural integrity. Notice that I still try to use as much slope/wedge/curved pieces as possible. Features: - 2 x 20mm cannons mounted on wings - 2 x 8mm MG on top of the engine (represented by a pair of black 1x4 hinge pieces) - 20mm cannon mounted coaxial with the propeller axle - Ammunition stowage (accepts any 1x2 tile as ammo belt) - Skeleton canopy opens/closes like the real thing - Cockpit has enough space to accept a pilot wearing an aviator helmet and a life jacket (new small type) - Throttle lever tilts back and forth - Instrument panel represented by 2 hollow studs in black - Service doors on wings - Landing gear retracts completely into the wings (VERY sturdy as well!) - Tail gear may be steered - Navigation lamps. (red, green, white) It's an homage to the tradition of Lego's airport sets that always had navigation lamps on the commercial airliners. - Engine cowl opens for inspection; exhaust pipes and ignition system visible - Behind the engine you can see the turbocharger intake and a hole for the hand crank - Fuel tank cap can be opened - Both wings may be detached for towing on road - Fuselage separates into 4 major components (to swap/combine painting schemes easily) - National insignia is made out of bricks; no stickers used. Designed to be visible from all sides. - A jettisonable fuel tank may be attached to the bottom I have posted a video on YouTube so that you can see the moving parts: Pictures: (The wings may look very fragile because they are hanging on the 1x2 locking hinge pieces, but there's another pair of clips inside the fuselage that connect to the top side of the wings. The wings are actually so strong that you can lift the whole thing by the tip of a wing. Details explained in the video.)

    Help with a Lego build

    I’m in the plane stage of a lego project I have the blueprint to make a RC scale model of German Horton 229 from WWII. I thought it be cool to make it out Lego bricks (after seeing someone a very large replica of Air Force One ). The only problem I’m having is how the engine are designed into the plane. I want to be authentic on my design. I’m hoping not to ruffle any feather by asking for help with project. I just think it’s a pretty cool plane. I attached some pics of the real Horton 229 as it sit in the Smithsonian to be restored for the museum.. again I hope it ok to post these considering it still has all the original marking on the plane. I got those off the google to show the design of the engines. again I apologize if I offended anyone

    Your finest hour

    This year, is the 75th anniversary of D-day. This is a tribute moc of mine for those who fought for our freedom. I hope you enjoy it.
  4. OK, I'll play too. I am excited about any reason to build an aircraft, but these last couple of days have been rough. I have drafted four ideas (F-86, TA-183, Air Racer, and DH Mosquito), and I didn't like were any of them were going. Getting the nose right is so tricky. Or I am too picky. So, here is the fifth idea, and we will see what can happen with this. It's not very ambitious, but I'll be able to get it done in time. And it fits with what I like to do, mid sized, no PF, and packed full of features. Dual Rotors Front and Rear Collective control Retractable landing gear Opening side door Rear ramp Which It's not much to start, but I have drafted some of the mechanics off to the side. I'll update again tomorrow. I am stuck on colors right now. Yellow and red is overdone, and I do not want too much white, so I welcome votes.

  5. - Train station 1944 - Finally I can show my new diorama 100% complete. I hope you enjoy my scene. Was so funny to build it. Please, check out my flickr page for more pics. about train wagons, tanks and other WWII veichles. Credits: -My BR23 was inspired by Ben Benekes model. -Panzer III it's a copy of Brickmania's set. P.S. I know, BR23 it's wrong to put into 1944 diorama (it's a 50's train) like the D.236 locomotive (this scheme of colours are post-war) but I love too much these 2 locomotive, especially with this scheme of colours. P.S. 2 Non-LEGO pieces (weapons, helmets etc.) by BRICKARMS, BRICKFORGE, BRICKMANIA P.S.3 Sorry for my bad english, I hope you can understand me
  6. When I was a kid in a primary school I had lot of fun with model-making of tanks, aircraft and armored vehicles from World War II. I also created some dioramas out of gypsum, styrofoam, wood etc. for models I made. Probably that's why I wanted to...

  7. Hello! I'm thinking of building a Balao-class sumbarine to honor a submarine that I spent a night on a few days ago. I'm not sure, however, what pieces I should use or how to design the engines/torpedo rooms; do you have any advice? Thanks!
  8. Hello everyone. This is my last diorama and the bigger one I've ever made, work started last summer. I've spent about 5 months to build it (included all veichles, buildings etc.), in free time. there are about 25.000 pieces, I don't know exact number and I don't care. Diorama are based on 12 bases 48x48, 5 bases 32x32 and 1 base 16x32, approx 210x120 cm. I hope you enjoy it, please leave a comment and follow me on flickr, there are more pictures. Thank you very much to all and sorry for my bad english. Andrea, Kriminal, Italy.

    WWII Steampunk Figbarf

  10. Good evening. This is my first post here in Special LEGO Themes; so far I appeared only in Star Wars department, so... hello everyone! To be honest, I wanted - finally, after so many unsuccesful attempts! - to build an early 76 mm turret (model 1940) for my T-34 tanks family but I failed again and then found some consolation building this - a tank destroyer / self-propelled gun SU-85, also based on the famous T-34 chassis. It happened very quickly (by my standards, anyway ;) ) - in just 5 or 6 evenings and virtually zero Bricklink orders. I'm pleased with the gun mantlet and general proportions of the model. Not so pleased with gap between glacis and side walls. And that's it, I guess. Please take a look at the photos. Comments welcome! P.S. I did not bother building ground plates just for this model - what you see in the last picture are modular plates I created for my ongoing Endor Project. False perspective rules ;) .

  11. Greetings, Today, I'd like to share my Afrika Korps vehicles that I've built over the last few months. I usually build sci-fi or modern military, so it was a nice change to build historical models. I had fun researching each vehicle, and it allowed me to use a lot of my tan parts, possibly my favorite Lego color. The first vehicle I built was a Panzer II Ausf C. It was used for mainly for reconnaissance roles. Panzer II Ausf C - DAK by Tyler, on Flickr I next built a Stug 3 Ausf F/8, which featured a long barreled gun, and excelled as a tank destroyer. Stug III Ausf F/8 - DAK by Tyler, on Flickr For some extra fire power, I built a 10.5 cm leFH 18, which was the standard German light howitzer used during WWII. The legs can be folded inwards to allow a bracket to be attached for towing. 10.5 leFH 18 - DAK by Tyler, on Flickr Finally, an Opel-Blitz; which was used throughout the war. Using left-over fabric from another one of my Lego projects I was able to make the cloth covering for the cargo hold. Opel Blitz by Tyler, on Flickr There are more photos of each model on my Flickr Photostream. Thanks for looking. I hope you enjoyed!
  12. I made a small display of landing in Normandy. I use both of my MOCs; LCVP Higgins Boat and Willys MB. As you see, I also added some soldiers and obstacles on the beach. A few details on the water is missing, but still, here it is. Here is a picture from exhibition. As you see, water is now made with transparent plates. Presentation of other creations you see behind will follow....
  13. Hi all, Here is my contribution to a collaboration we did for our most recent train show. It's supposed to be an occupied French chateau which is under a raid from the Americans. The mountain was a massive pain to build, especially with the train tunnel running underneath. I also have an access point at the back to handle derails. My hat is off to any of you who've built realistic, good looking mountains - it's tough! Enjoy: German occupied French chateau as my part of a WWII collaboration layout at our most recent train show. by Trent, on Flickr More pics in the Sask Lego User's Group Flickr stream (https://www.flickr.com/photos/sasklegousersgroup/25335450303/in/pool-1719412@N23/)

    [Moc] The WWII Museum

    Hello everyone :) I recently completed this MOC, which is, as the title says, a WWII museum. On the left side you can see a variety of helmets and weapons (Purchased from Brickmania). In the corner there is a mini diorama that represents the battle of the bulge with two German soldiers outfitted with Winter camouflage. Two British and American soldiers (manikins) can be seen on display at the right side of the MOC. As a center display, I decided to put a willy's jeep. Anything you like or don't like? Please let me know, I am all for constructive criticism :) Thank you, Luckypat

    WWII MOC Sd.Kfz. 222

    The Leichter Panzerspähwagen (German: roughly "light armoured reconnaissance vehicle") was a series of light four-wheel drive armoured cars produced by Nazi Germany from 1935 to 1944. I don't know about you folks, but in Slovenia we watched in year 1982 TV comedy series called " 'Allo 'Allo! ". On this TV show we can see Sd.Kfz. 222 and "Leftenant Gruber" called him "My little tank". This inspired me to build a creation below.
  17. I prepared this model for Brickworld Chicago couple weeks ago. It is quite playable on a table, and was a great show material. I build a slope with books and make it go up and down. The winter livery was due to limitation of available Lego pieces. However few stickers I made are based on my memories of a monument I saw in Russia, rather than pictures online. The model has 4 motors and Sbrick for smartphone control. RC functions: drive left and right track, turret rotation and gun elevation. Also the model features authentic Christie suspension. Video on youtube
  18. This creation will be part of bigger MOC. First I didn't build the interior, because creation will be visible only from the front side, but later I add some items anyway.

    WWII MOC Sd.Kfz. 251

    The Sd.Kfz. 251 half-track was German armored fighting vehicle. There were 23 official variants. I choose to make the basic one with MG34 mounted on it. You can read more about this vehicle here.

    WWII MOC Sidecar

    This is actually my first MOC for WW2. This side car is German Zündapp KS 750 Gespann. You can read more about this vehicle here (it's in German language) Images are old. Now it has mounted proper MG34 as shown on the last image.
  24. What can I say about this creation? It's just another German WW2 vehicle, made for transporting soldiers. :)
