    It flyeth, it flyeth!

    (FB2, Eslandola, April 2016) Alberto da Pontelli was carrying out his experiments in the basement of his house, which functioned as his laboratory. He was experimenting with the hot phlogiston that was created by setting fire to what came out of a good bottle of old Oleon wine. He thought that this would be enough to make some old cotton underskirt fly (which he had borrowed from his fiancé). It worked! "It flyeth, it flyeth", Alberto exclaimed. "The ball of cotton flyeth". He and Natasha were delighted as the cotton-structure (weighted by a stick) hit the ceiling. .. and they were too happy and distracted to notice other, less important events in the laboratory. (Where would this invention [named: "The flying ball of cotton"] lead him? ) C&C welcome!
  2. "It carries a bucket of water", Alberto da Pontelli exlaimed! (Some parts of his laboratory looked a bit sooty as results of the previous experiments...) "And the extract of rat liver is also working as a possible replacement for the Oleon wine! Both produce fine phlogiston when burning" "And the Royal Society has invited me to Arlinsport. This is so exciting. I need to build something bigger out of this!" And so he created the first Eslandolean airship, the "Spirit of Eslandola", which spent some time hovering above his house. (The cat was needed for balance purposes) In fact, it was just hovering and Alberto realized that he just could not tell the thing where to go. He was completely depending on the winds. No way he could make it to Arlinsport with the "Spirit of Eslandola". He would have to take a (normal) ship. "How shall I name my creation?" he pondered. It is lifted by two cotton balls and it hovers above the ground. "I shall name this invention a Ballhover" He had also added a new element (a Phlogiston-Catcher) to ensure that none of the created phlogiston would be missed. After having parked the ballhover, Alberto returned to his basement laboratory to complete his letter to the Royal Society. Alberto would debate with the monkey later to find ideas how to make a ballhover dirigible. C&C welcome. (and the pictures are much larger on flickr) Builder's comments: As for the photography, the reflections on these hemispheres are terrible... And the whole thing is utterly fragile and broke down and crashed several times .... (for those who want to try for themselves). Otherwise this was fun
  3.

    House of the Scientist

    In a beautiful yellow villa there lived a young man by the name of Alberto da Pontelli. He had developed a liking for something that was frowned upon in Eslandola: science. His family strongly opposed his plans but Alberto was slowly but surely making progress: Having modern books sent to him from Corrington, he started to equip his home with devices that would allow him to experiment.... This is the start of a new character, but today I will only show the beautiful house he is living in. I'll add more pics of details and interior later (when the weather allows better photography again). When I started building this I wanted to find out how good or bad a yellowish building would look and I also had some ideas of how to apply bits and pieces in white and grey. Then some things turned out different than expected (I had planned for different corners of the building) but I liked it. (Some pics started to look like LDD but this is actually made of real bricks). As I said, I will add more detail photos at a later point in time. C&C welcome. Here are the detail pictures: The house can be opened at the back: (some interior has also been added)

    [MOD] One More Brick Bounty MOD

    Ahoy, many people have already updated their Brick Bounty. Now, here is my modification (My Own MOD = MOMOD) of the Brick Bounty: Fully rigged, Three masts, 21A I have lengthened the hull to allow space for a third mast. The other modifications are minor. Carronades were added: And the cook is a friendly guy: Overall, I tried to keep style and design of the original. A compass was also added: More pictures and the larger versions can be found here. Have a nice weekend - C&C welcome!
  7. Colonel Brickinson was in a bad, bad mood. It was not that he was supposed to visit Major Capaldi and inspect the southern fort. He liked Capaldi and the fort was in great shape. It was the fact that they had made that scientist the Mayor of Pontelli. And that scientist had started to give him orders! Colonel Brickinson was in a bad, bad mood... Behold the bad tempered Colonel: and Major Capaldi: At least, Colonel Brickinson thought, they have a monkey... Modular build: (One attempt to do something with a raised baseplate) C&C welcome.

    Letter to Hawksbrugh

    Delighted by the success of his latest experiments, Alberto da Pontelli writes a letter: Dear Mr. Hawksbrugh, I am very thankful for the book you sent me on the possible existence of phlogiston. This has enabled me to achieve an unbelievable breakthrough: When you set fire to the gas that comes out of a bottle of old Oleon wine, the resulting phlogiston is powerful enough to lift objects. (edited) I can only encourage you to carry out some experiments for yourself. It would be interesting to find out whether other substances besides Oleon wine do also possess the same qualities. Your friend Alberto da Pontelli .. science has a tendency to spread ...
  11. We are close to running out of pictures, but ArchitectureFan and Captain Braunsfeld proudly present the next chapter of the Golden Age of Chicken Aviation: (in this case it is a chapter of chicken ballooning) The lava has been designed by ArchitectureFan.

  12. ... it was said that the Stubborn Stern bravely managed to outrun a dreaded pirate... here's what it looked like: So, Colonel Brickinson can celebrate .... ... while Captain Cookie and his team are not so happy: (I tried a different way of clouds on this one - and I have added small flags ) C&C welcome!
  13.

    [ESL-FB4] Banana Shop

    As you have seen how bananas are being shipped, you may wonder how the bananas are being sold. Here's the answer: The Banana Shop of Pontelli: The monkey ads have raised the popularity of the shop. The bananas in the shop are not cheap, but very sweet! Monkeys, men and women love the shop! As this is a surplus freebuild, I kindly ask for approval by Sea Rat, Oleon and Corrington visitors. C&C Welcome!
  20. Hi, when I did the "Fortify the Fortifications of the Fort" entry for Challenge II, I was struck by the thought that other uniforms than the Eslandolean green ones would look much better in that MOC. So, not linked to the challenge and not as a free-build, I have played around with the different teams we have in BoBS: As you can see, white and blue makes a fine contrast. ... red, white and black is working out fine too! Sea rats are colourful! Oh, sorry, this has turned into some sort of desaster... But I am sure that Captain Cookie and his gang are having fun! (The pirate on the ground is sleeping, if you were worried.) And here's how it started: Hey, this is the first MOC to feature all factions of BoBS - I apply for being frontpaged! ( larger pictures and a few more on flickr) C&C Welcome - Happy Easter!
  21. I present the 4115th Eslandolean Artillery Regiment under the command of Colonel Brickinson: These guys are tough - and hard to detect in their bright green uniforms. They are preparing to protect and defend Pontelli against all possible attackers. Colonel Brickinson is utterly determined! I wanted to show that the heavy guns have been moved across the grass but it doesn't come out so well on the pictures. The artillery battery has been fortified (with plans to build a stone defense in the near future). C&C Welcome.

    [ESL-FB5] Fields of Gold

    Wheat Field: Saturday night, I feel the air is getting hot ... I'll start again: It is Saturday afternoon and Colonel Brickinson is paying an inspection visit to a Pontelli wheat plantation: He has come to meet with the supervisor of the field The golden field is in excellent shape ... and well-protected: Thanks for watching - and, btw. approvals from Sea Rats, Corrington and Oleon are very welcome (this being 5th free-build)
  23. .. after sighting Hurricane Helga.. Here you can see the "Stubborn Stern" turning around... No chance against the wrath of Poseidon. On the left you can see the saddened figure of Captain Braunsfeld (holding an ETWC flag). On the right: Victorious Poseidon. C&C Welcome.
  24. Bardo has a famous brass band: Bardo's Lonely Hearts Club Band must have been around for some twenty years now. .. but they are still guaranteed to raise a smile ... or two. Here you can see these guys performing for the Musician’s Talent Fair.
  25. Here is my third free-build for this month, so I kindly ask for approvals from Corrington, Oleon and the much-feared Sea Rats. Little Shop of Parrots I have shown some Pontelli houses before, but, of course, in Eslandola everything is about commerce! With the size of fleets constantly expanding, the growing number of captains is triggering an extremely high demand for parrots. Percy, the parrotmonger, is the first address in Pontelli if you are looking for a Norwegian Blue. You can easily find him: Main road 5, open from 9 - 6 every day, except for Sundays. C&C & approvals welcome!
