    [MOC] Neuschwanstein Castle

    I designed Neuschwanstein Castle in the style of the LEGO Architecture series, and it contains about 1,276 pieces. This world famous castle is located in southern Bavaria and was built by Ludwig II (aka "The Mad King"). This Romanesque castle served as key inspiration for Walt Disney's own Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella Castles. Let me know what you think! I don't have instructions for this build just yet, but my other instructions can be found here and on Rebrickable.com.

    [MOC] Federal Hall

    "Federal Hall!" -George Sears Located in New York City, George Washington had his Presidential Inauguration here on April 30, 1779. It's also the finale location in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, and it has a lot of personal meaning to me. Though this is one of my first MOCs, I wanted to try and be as professional as possible in creating something that could look as if it were an official Architecture set in trend with other US Federal Buildings. Though I had the luxury of the back being plain, the main structure is 15×7 studs, and I really had to optimize all space to neatly display the exact details I desired. More details can be seen here: http://imgur.com/gallery/N2wIEFF
  3. Here it is, my newest model, the Woolworth Building. The Woolworth Building is an early American skyscraper located in Manhattan, New York City. Designed by architect Cass Gilbert, it was the tallest building in the world from 1913 to 1930, with a height of 792 feet (241 m). Located in Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood, The 60-story structure consists of a 30-story tower situated atop a 30-story base. Its facade is mostly decorated with terracotta (though the lower portions are limestone) and contains thousands of windows. The skyscraper was originally conceived by F. W. Woolworth, the founder of a brand of popular five-and-ten-cent stores, as a headquarters for his company. Woolworth planned the skyscraper jointly with the Irving National Exchange Bank, which also agreed to use the structure as its headquarters. Construction started in 1910, and it was completed two years later. The Woolworth Building underwent several changes throughout its history. The top thirty floors, formerly used as office space, were sold to a developer in 2012 and subsequently converted into residences. The remainder of the building remains in use by office and commercial tenants. This model stands at 63cm tall and contains ~8,500 pieces, built at a 1:400 scale. There is a lot of techniques I had to come up with to be able to get all of the details in the façade and the roof. The details of the Woolworth Building are so intricate that it would be impossible to include everything at this scale but I tried my best to make it work. Overall, I'm really happy with the way it has turned out and I can't wait to get started on my next build....

    [MOC] Central Park Casino

    Hello everyone! This is my first post on Eurobricks in a while! Located in the heart of Transylvania, Cluj Napoca is the second biggest city in Romania. Built in an Architecture theme style, the Central Park Casino is one of the most representative and well-known buildings of the city. It is the main building of the city's Central Park, and it has served multiple purposes over the years, currently being used as a cultural destination. Being built in the late 19th century, its eclectic architecture is closely resembled using LEGO elements. The LEGO model consists of 1650 pieces that represent as closely as possible the small details, columns, windows and overall shape of the real-world Casino. It was built with a modular design in mind, resulting in 25 different subsections such as the baseplates, arches, corners, sides, roof, etc. The MOC was showcased at the Brickenburg Winter Exhibition of 2019-2020, in Romania, and also at the Skaerbaek Fan Weekend 2019, in Denmark. If you wish to support it, you can find the Casino on LEGO Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/6405c9e0-f7d0-47ef-a075-6fd097deaf52 Thank you very much! Would love to hear your opinions on this.

    [MOC] Technopil City

    Once I have visit city Ternopil (Ukraine), and saw there a nice church. Since that I wanted to recreate it in bricks. It is not exactly that church (and not in Ternopil), but also not bad, as for me. For the second tower I just haven't parts. Also I haven't parts for square in front, so I made just stands for small scenes of citylife and unite all in one with pipes. So free your imagination ;-)
  7. Hi everyone. I hope this is the right place for this. I'd like to present my first real MOC; Downton Abbey! I displayed it at Brick Bash 2020 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It was pretty well received! You can see more about it on my blog if you're interested: http://allaboutthebricks.com/lego-downton-abbey-my-first-real-moc/
  8. Hello, I'm proud to present to you my newest MOC, Willis Tower, formerly Sears Tower, at a 1:400 scale. Pieces - 23,037 Height - 131 Centimetres (51.4") My take on the iconic Willis Tower, formerly Sears Tower. The structure of the tower itself is relatively simple as it is just the same four patterns repeated. That said, The base more than made up for the tower's lack of complexity. Featuring sloped roads and split level entrances it took a lot of trial and error and of course, time, to get to this result. I am really quite happy with how this model turned out. It was worth all the effort. I cannot wait to try my hand at more skyscrapers in the future. The Willis Tower is a 110-story 1,450-foot (442.1 m) skyscraper in Chicago, Illinois At completion in 1973, it surpassed the World Trade Center in New York City to become the tallest building in the world, a title that it held for nearly 25 years; it was also the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere for 41 years, until the new One World Trade Center surpassed it in 2014. While it held the title of "Tallest Office Building" until 2014, it lost the title of "Tallest Man-Made Structure" after only 3 years. The CN Tower in Toronto, which serves as a communications tower, took over the title in 1976. The Willis Tower is considered a seminal achievement for architect Fazlur Rahman Khan. It is currently the third-tallest building in the United States and the Western Hemisphere – and the 23rd tallest in the world. Each year, more than one million people visit its observation deck, the highest in the United States, making it one of Chicago's most popular tourist destinations. The structure was renamed in 2009 by the Willis Group as a term of its lease. More pictures can be found on my Flickr, https://www.flickr.com/photos/186855130@N08/albums/72157713216189008 -TJ

Thus was born this idea with historical consonance of medieval Japan, while being incorporable with Ninjago. I have been looking for a long time: to have a strong iconic and cultural medieval Japanese architecture, and to have a Ninjago aspect. The Soutou Tenshu ! In Japanese, a "Tenshu" is a multi-floor castle tower. A "Tenshukaku" is a Japanese castle. A "Soutou Tenshu" designates a particular architectural form, which is a smaller version of a Tenshukaku. There is no word in English or in Western culture for this type of construction. It’s not just a tower of a castle. It is a scaled-down reproduction of a main keep in a Japanese castle. In the West, this notion does not exist. To date, there are 12 original surviving Japanese castles. So few remain… The Soutou Tenshu are a cultural treasure in Japan; they are emblematic of its architectural sophistication, beauty and functionality. They are classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Soutou Tenshu - LEGO IDEA by Horlack, sur Flickr With my creation, I have not reproduced an existing Soutou Tenshu. I wanted an authentic representation of a Soutou Tenshu, but I also wanted to pay tribute to all the Soutou Tenshu which have disappeared over history. That is to say, I preserved the architectural spirit of the Soutou Tenshu, while allowing myself the freedom of imagination to incorporate playability into its construction for a child. The toy aspect of this for a child is just as important to me as its cultural fidelity to Japan. I have devoted myself to researching and uncovering ancient and long-forgotten aspects of Japanese culture. Whether just forgotten by time or lost in the writings of European historians who “westernized” the Orient too much. Modern history books have erased certain historical facts about Japan which did not agree with their vision of the western (often masculine) world, sometimes so much so that we forget about the Japanese themselves ! For example, today we know that Samurai often had katanas, an iconic and mythical Japanese sword. But we forget that many samurai did not have the financial means to buy such a prestigious weapon, which might cost them years, or even a lifetime, of salary. Likewise, we overlook the fact that there were more modest samurai who fought with axes, spears and bows. More importantly, we are unaware that there were samurai women, called Onna Bugeisha, who could make up 30% of an army. But modern Western feminism ignores the fact that the Japanese, 5 to 6 centuries before the Westerners, already had their feminism. No, feminism is not credited as a gift of our modern world. Thus, I intentionally incorporated into my Soutou Tenshu five powerful elements of ancient Japanese culture, forgotten and passed over in silence by Western reports. Personnagesi-01 by Horlack, sur Flickr 1 / A female samurai figurine with a Japanese longbow, named Daïkyu. Like the famous Samourai woman Tomoe Gozen, whose life gave birth to beautiful poems and tales. Woman of legend, with an extraordinary destiny, who commanded men. (Kimono based on figurine Ivy Walker - set 70620) 2 / A female samurai figurine with a long spear, named Nagamaki or Naginata. Like the famous woman Samourai Nakano Takeko, of the Aizu clan, who ordered up to 30% of samurai women equipped with this weapon, in her army. The length of the handle of the Nagamaki and Naginata, allowed women to keep an enemy at a distance, even if the opponent was stronger. The advantages of this weapon are a bit like the Greek phalanxes under Alexander. (based on Kimono Girl, Series 4) 3 / A male samurai figurine, with a large axe named a Masakari, and a small axe named an Ono. Representative of some samurai from low social class, such as farmers or monks (also named "samurai monk" or "warrior monk"); many of these men rose to the rank of samurai by their courage and loyalty to their lord. They often fought with weapons from their social class (like axes), because the Katana was inaccessible to them financially. (based on figurine Kendo Fighter, Series 15 & Samurai Warrior, Series 3 & Samurai, Series 13) 4 / A male samurai figurine, with a large mallet made entirely of hard wood known as an Otsuchi. This weapon was used by samurai from low social class. It was also effective for breaking down castle doors. Despite its heavy and rudimentary appearance, it was a formidable weapon to crush the leather and metal armor of enemy samurai (based on figurine Kendo Fighter, Series 15 & Samurai Warrior, Series 3 & Samurai, Series 13) 5 / The ōyumi, a defensive ballista. The ōyumi was a complicated type of giant crossbow, although historians are unsure of its appearance, as there are no real examples or illustrations known. Only five medieval texts refer to it. Historians agree that this weapon did exist, but it is one of the forgotten weapons of Japan’s past, and its details have been lost in history. The construction of Soutou Tenshu, with a certain free interpretation to be compatible with the gameplay: Ground floor : -Door with stylized Oni face -Stylized portal (or Torii), with emblem of Japan (wink) -Forge / blacksmith -Well water -Water and sake reserve (wink) -Prison / warehouse room -Ōyumi ballist -Various weapons. -Sakura Cherry blossom tree (emblematic tree of Japan) First floor : -Kitchen -Dining room / refectory -Weapons room / training room Second floor : -Bedroom Base : Folding base with 3 basic hinges (pivots) on the outsides, and a triple system of internal hinges per pivot, to stabilize and strengthen the base, with part number 19954 Hinge plate 1x2. When the base is closed, the stability and structural integrity is increased by the triple internal hinge system, and also by the 4 train magnets hidden in the walls of the ground floor. . Play functions : Everything is playable and functional. You can open the Tenshu by the hinges of the base, or by lifting the building floors like the LEGO Modular sets. Everything is accessible both horizontally and vertically. Working : Make with LEGO Digital Designer and Studio (Bricklink). There are 2987 bricks without minifigurines. The project required around three weeks of working and 72 hours of 3D rendering (calculation). If you love Japan, or your kids love Lego Ninjago, then support me ! thanks you very much.

  11. Hi all, being my first acitivity here (beside my introduction post) I would like to show my MOC design of an iconic skyscraper here in Frankfurt, the so-called "Messeturm". It is located close to the city entrance of the Frankfurt trade fair area, what is the reason for the building's name (German word for "trade fair" is "Messe" and "Turm" is the german word for "Tower").The building was completed 1990 and it's architect is Chicago based Helmut Jahn, the interior concept was developed by Mattheo Thun. The building features an entrance foyer with a height of 15m. The overall height of the building is 257m with 64 floors. That makes the Messeturm the 2nd highest building both in Frankfurt and Germany at present. My personal motivation for this MOC was the fact that I can see this famous building with it's iconic roof pyramid construction from my office as well as from my living room. Instructions for this MOC (stud.io pdf) are available for free on rebrickable.com (search for user Franziska or Messeturm). Hope you like it :-) Cheers, Franziska

    [MOC] Radcliffe Camera

    This is my second major MOC of the year, and in a way it marks my seventh anniversary on this board. If you've ever seen Morse, Lewis or Endeavour, this building is instantly recognizable. The Radcliffe Camera was built in the mid 18th Century as an independent library in Oxford. After approximately a century, the library was absorbed into the Bodleian Libraries and its science collection was moved to what is now the Radcliffe Science Library (although that building will soon be converted into Parks College). The Radcliffe Camera maintains a collection today but is largely used as a reading room. This MOC was built in Mecabricks and rendered in Blender. The building itself comprises approximately 2000 pieces and the base another 1500. Thanks for looking!

    [MOC] "Back to the Future" skyline

    "Please excuse the crudity of this model. I didn't have time to build it to scale or paint it." - Doc Brown This MOC is built in the style of the Architecture skyline series, and it features the evolution of the famous Hill Valley Clock Tower in 1885, 1955, and 2015! Let me know what you think! For anyone interested, instructions for an ever so slightly modified version can be found here and on Rebrickable.com.
  15. Hello everybody! Now we know that next year there'll be skylines of Tokyo and Dubai. So I thought it would be interesting to collect ideas for new skylines. Here are my wishes: Hamburg (Elb Philharmony, harbor with cargo crane, fish market house, St. Pauli, town hall) Rome (Collosseum, Peter dome, remains of Forum Romanum, ...) Billund (Lego house, Lego factory, Kristiansen's house, ...) Cologne (dome, bridge, RTL building, ...) Rio de Janeiro (carneval, beach, Jesus statue on rock, ...) Washington D. C. (Capitol, White House, ...) Moscow (Kremlin, ...) Vienna (castle, Prater with ferris wheel, ...) Athens (Acropolis, remains of ancient Greek houses, ...) What would you like to see?
  16. Hi everyone! I am Angle, a new member from Macau. I'd like to share my latest MOC - the modular building version of 221B Baker Street from Sherlock (BBC). This model is inspired by Sherlock - a BBC drama TV series based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous Sherlock Holmes detective stories. The building exterior is based on the combination of North Gower Street, which is “Baker Street” in the drama and the Sherlock Holmes Museum in London. The interior is decorated with completed furniture to recreate scenes in the drama. In order to increase playability, the model is hinged in a few places. You can either separate it level by level liked any other modular buildings, or just separate it in the middle liked a dollhouse. The model is constructed on a 32 X 32 baseplate. No stickers is applied. Ground Floor : Speedy’s Sandwich Bar & Cafe, The entrance & corridor of 221B, Mrs Hudson’s kitchen The counter and dining area is based on photos of Speedy’s sandwich bar & cafe I searched from the internet. The toilet, kitchen and storage room are all by my imagination. According to the floor plan I got from the internet, Mrs Hudson’s apartment should be on the ground floor just behind the cafe. However, in order to place the whole building onto a 32 X 32 base plate, I kept the kitchen on this floor but had to move her apartment to the second floor . First Floor : John & Sherlock’s living room, kitchen, Sherlock’s bathroom & bedroom This floor is mostly based on the amazing 360° google map of the 221B interior setting in the drama. Sherlock‘s bedroom was moved from the back to the right-front, for the same reason of Mrs Hudson’s apartment. Some easter eggs such as sherlock’s experiment material(s), the yellow spray paint and the persian slipper are hidden in this messy scene. Second Floor : John ’s bedroom & toilet, Mrs Hudson’s living room & bathroom Unfortunately, John’s bedroom and Mrs Hudson’s apartment were always behind the scene, so this floor is completely based on my imagination. John and Mrs Hudson can access to their own private space through separated door-gates. Mrs Hudson’s bedroom is mainly decorated in light purple. (According to the clothes and accessories she wears in the drama, I guess she is a fan of this colour.) Although no kitchen is at this floor, there is an electric stove for her to make tea. Roof : Mrs Hudson’s roof garden I made a small garden for Mrs Hudson to plant her flowers and vegetables. I am pretty sure Sherlock will frequently "help fertilizing" them after finishing his experiments. Minifigures: At this moment I only finished 4 minifigures :Sherlock, John, Mrs Hudson and Mycroft. All minifigures are created from official minifigure parts. Other characters will be completed at the following updates. LEGO IDEAS: I've submitted this model as a LEGO IDEA project. To everyone who likes this model, I would be very grateful if you can head forward to the following link to give this model your support. 221B Baker Street from Sherlock (BBC)

    [MOC] Cliffside Villa

    Well, after a long period of not doing much besides the giant Eleitian Central Command model, I present to you my newest model, The Cliffside Villa! The idea came about last Sunday, I was procrastinating on doing stuff I was supposed to, as one does. I decided to expand on the bridge, which I had been building as a standalone concept but couldn't figure out what to do with. I was going to build a fairytale castle on the cliffs that I eventually made behind the bridge, but then it morphed into an entirely different building altogether! The porches, stained glass window, and other elements of the actual pavilion came about next, after I'd laid the groundwork (literally) in the form of the cliffs. I then decided to make it into a combination of my previous Temple of the Moon Maiden MOC and something more open to interpretation. So it could be used, (it sits on a baseplate totaling 32 x 48) as an addition to a modular city! Perhaps a large city park with a pavilion, or some form of garden! From my official description: It's a fine spring day at the Cliffside Villa! The Moon Priest contemplates the deep questions of life on the porch, while his daughter strolls the elegantly appointed walkways of the garden. Two guards stand sentry by the staircase, protecting the inhabitants of the Villa from harm. Explore all the secret nooks and crannies of this large set, from the bell tower to the fish pond to the stained glass window behind which the statue of the Moon Maiden is placed! Set features: - 2568 Pieces - 7 Minifigures: The Moon Priest, Moon Priest's Daughter, Statue of the Moon Maiden, (2) Garden Statues, (2) Guards - Villa features a large stained glass window, metallic Statue of the Moon Maiden on a raised pedestal, and two spacious porches. Upper story features a movable bell! - Elegant bridge crosses a large frog pond filled with lily pads and other aquatic plants. See if you can spot the frogs hiding down there! - Statuary adorns the garden, which is built onto the cliffs with beautiful brick-built birch and cherry trees in full bloom. - Relax on the small bench set below one of the statues! - Features multiple unique pieces, such as the Ornamental gold fish adorning the roof, the Moon Priest's staff, and much more! - Spacious basement level beneath the Villa is perfect for placing hidden treasure or whatever you need for added suspense! But don't just follow that one story for this model, use your imagination to make it your own! This model, on baseplates totaling 32 x 48, can be placed as a standalone model or a complementary model for your modular city! Use it as a pavilion, a city park, or a historical monument in your LEGO town. This MOC is now on LEGO Ideas! If you want to, please help support it, I'd love for it to be one of the lucky few that makes it! The Cliffside Villa: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/4bfda07a-beb1-440e-bcfe-d9742e9d3746 Feel free to leave any comments below, and keep on building, everyone! :)

    [MOC] Lion Pub

    Hi everyone I'm new here in the forum and like to share my first MOC which I have been working on over the last 3 months. I build the MOC with BrickLink Studio 2.0 and used the new Eyesight Render for my images. I love the modular building sets from Lego but I missed the detail level on the upper floors. According to this I decide to design and build a more detailed modular building with more minifigures than the regular ones from lego. This building represents a classic British pub with a lot of typical details like a British cab, a London phone box, a classical English pub facade with a lot of flowers and much more. The modular style building with 3 floors and an accessible roof is built on a 32x32 base plate and contains 32 minifigures and approximately 6000 parts. Level 1 - Bar The first floor contains the main bar area of the pub and small full-featured restroom with toilet, urinal and lavatory. Outside there are bar tables and a red phone box. Minifigures Craftsman enjoying his after-work beer Bobby (Police Officer) on patrol Barkeeper and owner of the Lion Pub Regular guest who enjoys his retirement Best friends enjoy their free evening Level 2 – Gambling room The second floor features a gambling room complete with a pool table, poker corner and dart board. There is also a balcony on the back side to the backyard. Minifigures Young couple play a game of pool Office worker playing a game of darts Student can't keep his hands off gambling Housewife practices her passion at the poker table Professional poker player Level 3 – Live Music The third floor features a stage for live music, a small bar and a second full-featured restroom. Minifigures Punk who also loves Rock'n'Roll Aging hippie Piano player Elvis imitator and musician Groupie Barmaid Businessman enjoys a cool pint Champagne connoisseur and music lover Level 4 – Rooftop Party The last level offers space for a roof top party with a sitting corner under the overgrown pergola, bar tables, barbecue and DJ. Minifigures Man enjoying the delicious Hotdogs Barbecue chef Security DJane Female dancer Boyfriend of the female dancer Bestfriends start the evening with prosecco Celebrity couple Cab / Taxi Last but not least, the MOC offers a Classic London Cab heavily influenced by the "TFL Classic London Cab Taxi" from bamsham363 Minifigures Businessman treats himself to a pint Taxi driver Thanks very much for reading and I hope you like my first MOC. There are more pictures on Bricksafe and feel free to support my MOC on Rebrickable and let me know what you think. At the moment I am building my MOC with real Lego bricks. As soon as possible I will post any photos of the real lego building.
  20. For the last month I have been designing skylines for the three "The Lord of the Rings" movies/books! "The Fellowship of the Ring" features the Shire, Bree, Weathertop, Ford of Bruinen, Rivendell, Moria (behind Rivendell), the Doors of Durin, and the Gates of Argonath. Moria is hidden behind Rivendell :) "The Two Towers" features Edoras (with the Golden Hall), Fangorn Forest (with micro Ents), Isengard (with Orthanc), the Dead Marshes, and Helm's Deep. Helm's Deep has a play feature built it that allows you to launch part of the fortified wall into the air to reenact the explosion. Here is a view looking down over the Dead Marshes: "The Return of the King" features Minas Tirith, The Black Gate, Barad-dur, the Tower of Cirith Ungol (with hidden Shelob on the back), and Mount Doom. Mount Doom's tiny play feature allows you to drop the ring into the top and it will come out the backside. And here is a view of all three of them lined up together. Anyone interested in seeing additional views can check out my Instagram page (@BenBuildsLego). Instructions are also available for all three on Rebrickable and via the link in my Instagram bio. Let me know what you think of them!

    [MOC] Baseplate Alley

    Head to Baseplate Alley and have a blast! Here it is finally, my tenth modular building! Almost a full year after my previous (Disco 2000 Vinyl Store), I’ve put together enough ideas to fill a whole 32x32 baseplate. Architecturally, I believe this is my most complete model. The designs throughout are not only daring but also well-balanced and complement one another, something I used to struggle quite a bit with. Both buildings are almost identical in shape and proportions and vary in details and colours. In fact, originally there only was one building: the striped one on the right. I loved it so much, but I was struggling to find something that would complement it well. In the end, I thought. “If I love how this turned out, why not repeat the already existing motifs to create a grander picture?” (almost like you would in a song; the chorus and the melodies are often repeated various times). The building on the left is my favourite of the two. The orange and bright blue colour scheme of the model is taken from Henri Matisse’s “The Dance” painting and I think it looks marvellous. Both buildings sit on a rather peculiar angle. I was looking for a way to offset the model from the usual 90-degree grid and found that two of the piece 54384 (https://brickset.com/parts/design-54384) turned at about 20 degrees filled about 12.5 studs and that allowed me to build an angled façade without any seams! Duplicating that didn’t solve the slight error, but some handy trickery helped hiding it. The rest of the model is completed with Medium Nougat façades on top of a Sand Green ground floor. I especially like how the windows in Sand Green (inspiration from my own previous model) work with the façade with yellow windows on the side. My favourite bit to build of modular are cornices and rooflines; it’s quite amazing how they can transform the look of a building. The one for the striped building is one that I’ve wanted to put on a model for a really long time; I think it’s really elegant and that it suits the building nicely (I’ve had it built for roughly a year and a half). The one for the blue building is a brand-new design especially designed to both enhance the other building (this one’s set slightly further back in some areas) and make the blue building have an almost castle feeling. The roofline for the nougat part is the minimum expression of the same concept of the white roofline. Using the new arches from the large Hogwarts Castle and the 1x1 bow pieces also found to top off the black box on the ground floor of the blue building, I’ve created this wave design. It’s rather simple to be honest, only impossible for a very long time. ================== Interiors: Interiors have never been my biggest strength, but I’ve put extra effort to make them really pop in this model (it’s my tenth, I should start getting better, shouldn’t I? ). The nature of the façade makes this modular way more modular than any of my previous models. Both top floors detach into three parts, one for each façade and one for the actual interior. This was not intentional but makes this model way more playable. Beyond that, I’ve also added an open ventilation shaft to add more interest to the interior and more light to all the rooms. Here’s a 3D view of the model with all its sections: https://www.mecabricks.com/en/models/Geje68pxvKX. 1. Ground floor: On the ground floor are two art galleries. They have interpretations of real-life works (I will admit that some of them are not particularly easy to identify), but you can find a Picasso, a Manet, a Botticelli, a Mondrian and a Matisse. I bet you’ll see the last one. They’re telling me that Matisse himself has decorated the façade of the left building using the colours from the piece he’s presenting here… Who knows, maybe it’s the art gallery that is running low on cash! I really like how this rendering turned out, it really tells a story. 2. Middle floor: Both the top floors are dedicated to the publisher of the ABS-famous newspaper “Stud Times”. Today’s edition is a packed one! The Iron Horse is closing because of chef Emma’s death, the celebrity detective Ace Brickman is seen eating in Jim’s Diner rather than at the usual Chez Albert, news about battered leg assemblies and even a front cover advert of face transplants! On the middle floor we have the machine printing out the newspapers with all the needed tools and equipment. There’s also a hidden little play feature, there’s a little rotating crank for extra movement (it doesn’t actually do anything). And before you say it, yes, the windows on the back are copied from Downtown Diner. 3. Top floor: Piles and piles of newspapers, typewriters (the design is the same one @Bricked1980 used in his Police Station), four clocks to check what time it is in the various parts of the globe, phones, coffee mugs to swallow the sweat, a fax machine and, of course, a paper bin to throw away texts with mistakes! ================== To see everything that I haven’t been able to explain in words, feel free to take a look at the model yourselves, many of the “how was this/that made” are visible! From here I encourage all the digital builders to upload their models to Mecabricks, there's hardly anything more enriching as a builder than seeing how others are building! 3D view of the model: https://www.mecabricks.com/en/models/Lkj9DgqB2Ap 3D view of the interiors (+ how the façades are built) https://www.mecabricks.com/en/models/Geje68pxvKX =================== Thanks for reading through and hope you like the model! PD: Please, could you comment on the various things I've changed in presentation. Mainly rendering engine and format of the image (now a squarer 3300x2550 format rather than the wider 3840x2160 format). Please say someone got thejokes in the newspaper

    Olafur Eliasson - Tate Modern

    The artist Olafur Eliasson is currently staging a major exhibition at the state Modern in London, which charges a fee. However, his 2004 artwork The Cubic Structural Evolution Project is free to see in the turbine hall of said museum. The artwork consists of a cityscape constructed from one tonne of white LEGO bricks, and you can tear some down and rebuild the city in your own vision. More info here: https://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-modern/exhibition/olafur-eliasson/olafur-eliasson-cubic-structural-evolution-project Unfortunately, I can't go. But hopefully some EB members can check it out and maybe report on the experience!
  25. I received a lot of positive feedback on my "A New Hope" skyline, so here is the next installment: "The Empire Strikes Back." I'm currently working on creating a skyline with the same dimensions for each Star Wars film - you can see "Rogue One," and "Solo" on my Instagram and Flickr pages. I also made some slight modifications to the design to make the pieces more affordable. Anyone interested can find the instructions here.
