MOC: Updating the Classics (2) - 6049 Viking Voyager
Captain Braunsfeld posted a topic in LEGO Historic ThemesHi there! I would like to continue my MOC series "Updating the Classics". (part 1: MOC: Updating the Classics (1) - 6018 Battle Dragon Revisited part 3: MOC: Updating the Classics (3) - 6057 Sea Serpent Revisited) This time I will try to do the "6049 Viking Voyager" some justice. The set goes back until 1987 (and I did not have it). 6049 Viking Voyager (Revisited & Original): 6049 Viking Voyager: I have added Midgardian colours to distract from the key point that I do not have the original shield Also the "cover" for the treasure had been designed in white - I only have similar bricks in black. There they are, rowing away happily... 6049 Viking Voyager (Revisited): A new model required the usage of the "real" vikings. The treasure "cover" was enhanced - and created in white. Overall colour scheme is meant to be close to the original. And then I thought that I need to do something special for the gallion (the original gallion is - frankly speaking - quite poor): .... and I think I was very successful! That was fun! I have used oars - they were not available when the original set came out (we are talking about pre-pirate times!). So, after this overhaul, the new vikings may row away in peace into the sunset! More to come - C&C welcome!
MOC: Updating the Classics (4) - 1752 Crossbow Boat Revisited
Captain Braunsfeld posted a topic in LEGO Historic ThemesHi there! I would like to continue my MOC series "Updating the Classics". (part 1: MOC: Updating the Classics (1) - 6018 Battle Dragon Revisited part 2: MOC: Updating the Classics (2) - 6049 Viking Voyager part 3:MOC: Updating the Classics (3) - 6057 Sea Serpent Revisited) Dubbadgrim has thankfully pointed me to 1752 Crossbow Boat (1996), a really small boat with one knight and two crossbows. I thought that the crossbow would have to be bigger for the new version. The set was also released as 1804 Crossbow Boat and and 2892 Thunder Boat. 1752 Crossbow Boat (Original & Revisited): 1752 Crossbow Boat: The original is one of the smallest boats put out by TLG. As I have run out of the correct black bricks I have rebuild the model using (old) dark grey. It possesses a certain charme: 1752 Crossbow Boat Revisited: For the new version, a good crossbow was available I also thought it would be better to differentiate between the oarsmen and the crossbow men. So it got a bit bigger than the original. I could not stick to the colour scheme as I wanted to use some spare boat bricks. Then I was satisfied with the new edition. (No brick-built sail this time.) But still I think that TLG might have seen this as the "modern" version of the set: The series will continue! C&C welcome!

MOC: Eagle - Space 1999
Captain Braunsfeld posted a topic in LEGO Sci-FiHello, as a kid I was a huge fan of Space 1999 (Mondbasis Alpha 1 in German). This led me to trying to build an Eagle out of bricks: The colours are not correct, as the enthusiasts will know, but my kids needed white & others so only red and blue were left for me at that time. Basically this was an exercise in stability & design, as I can lift the whole thing in the middle - and it does not fall apart. Also, it does not bend. These two modules are also not 100% like the original (there is only one module underneath an eagle) - I tried two for playability reasons. However, as you can see on the in- and outside they were never finished. Reason: My kids showed no interest in this model at all. So it went to sleep .... Still: I like those Eagles. Looking at the pictures right now I'd say the "legs" need some more improvement (too small). ... and the two modules look too bulky (but they can relatively easily be attached and taken off). The different parts of the Eagle are linked by sliding doors. Unfortunately for me, I have seen some other "Eagle-creations" here on the forum and I liked them much better than mine (both design & choice of colour). In any case: Your comments are welcome!
BII Cg. III Cat A - Statue of Bofur Silveraxe
Captain Braunsfeld posted a topic in Guilds of HistoricaHello everyone, this is my first participation in a challenge. The MOC is part of the dwarf quest - A: Ancestors and Heroes. Three dwarves are visiting the statue of famous Bofur Silveraxe. They pray for strength in the battles to come. (One of them is the commander of the attack boats I presented recently) This is also the first time I have tried some mosaic technique for the floor. This is why the result is so "modest" - other builders are already much more experienced in this sector. All the best for you for 2015! edit: Can someone correct the typo in the headline?
Challenge III Cat C: Inventions
Captain Braunsfeld posted a topic in Guilds of HistoricaCallenge III, Category C - Dwarves Side: The dwarf commander looked at the model of a fortress, deep in thoughts. Dwarfardo, the inventor, approached him: "Sir, I can present to you a model of a siege engine. It will bring us victory against the Drow." The commander turned, unconvinced: "You have come only with a model? How long will it take to build the real thing?" Dwarfanardo smiled: "Oh, the real thing was finished before the model. We can move it back in here in no time." This assistants helped to move the large siege engine. Dwarfanardo applied last touches. Then he was satisfied. So was the commander. "How do you call it?" he asked. "Well", said Dwarfanardo, "Wallbreaker came to my mind." "So be it". The next day saw the "Wallbreaker" in action against the Drow: (Ok, a bit of a "rush build" to make the deadline...) edit/addition: But Dwarfanardo had actually created two more deadly machines: The commander was impressed!
MOC: Three Scientists Meet
Captain Braunsfeld posted a topic in LEGO Historic ThemesHello, due to some miracle or very advanced future technologies three famous scientists (physisists) have managed to meet at some point in the Age of Discovery to discuss physics and personal matters: Question: Can you guess their names? (Well, if not, I need to redo the minifigs )

MOC: Fortress on the Rocks
Captain Braunsfeld posted a topic in LEGO Historic ThemesHi, here is some more of my work for our little dwarven friends: The Fortress on the Rocks (I am always bad at titles for my MOCs ) I hope you don't mind the black background, but as some snow has fallen, white wouldn't have worked out (and red would have been strange). This is the "left side" of the rather large MOC. My aim was to create a mountain which is inhabited below and on its top: The guards seem to be happy: There's a traveling salesman approaching: .. and a few guarded stairs lead up to a secret door There is the entrance to the fortress: .. .and the entrance to the mountain: A view from the right: Please don't pay attention to the landscape around the mountain. This was just added for the picture. The MOC is intended to be "just the mountain". And then this is all very modular: The mountain consists of three parts. The upper fortress is made up of four modules + draw bridge tower. I have included the Harry Potter secret door, to allow escape from the fortress' prison, but that is more on the funny side of things. I hope you like this and I am happy to receive your comments!
MOD: 7036 Dwarves Mine
Captain Braunsfeld posted a topic in LEGO Historic ThemesHi, I am about to modify my modification of the 7036 Dwarves Mine (I think I can do better now) which I have actually done some time back before all of the LOTR stuff started. Therefore I wanted to capture it before its gone. I was really fascinated when the dwarves mine came out. It was actually the first set which I bought several times. ... and now it needs some re-work
[MOC] Jungle Adventure
Captain Braunsfeld posted a topic in Pirate MOCsAhoy, I am still struggling to keep up to the goal of "one MOC per week", but I have something which is somewhat presentable: A Walk in the Park The Jungle Adventure! This is actually a part of the storyline I am working on. I fear I need to retake the pictures for that purpose - the lighting has not worked out as intended (and I probably shouldn't mention this not to spoil it for everyone... ) It has been quiet comment-wise on this forum, so I will be happy to read your comments! --- update ---
