    [MOC] Custom Boat

    172D Inspired by "Shipwreck Defense" I have created a complete (custom) boat: C&C welcome!
  2. A nice Sunday to everyone! I am starting a new MOC series under the title "Updating the Classics". Having been inspired by a similar post in the "town" forum, I thought it would be interesting to apply modern bricks and building techniques to a few classic castle ships that we have seen in the 90s. The challenge for me in there is twofold: First I have to try to rebuild the original (which is not so easy due to lack of "historic" bricks), second part is to come up with a new version. 6018 Battle Dragon (Revisited & Original): 6018 Battle Dragon: The Battle Dragon is not one of the biggest ships for our knights... I was lucky - I (almost) had all the necessary bricks. In an updated version it might look like this: 6018 Battle Dragon (Revisited): The sail has the "dragon" on it. The dragon gallion is actually a very fine creation, so I kept it, just changing the colour and a few smaller parts. I thought that a sail and a rudder were useful additions. And that the crew could grow by 50%. More to come - C&C welcome! Edit: Part 2 can be found here: MOC: Updating the Classics (2) - 6049 Viking Voyager Part 3: MOC: Updating the Classics (3) - 6057 Sea Serpent Revisited

    MOC: Dunehill Castle

    Hi Everyone, I would like to present a recent project: "Dunehill Castle". Dunehill Castle is located in the northwest of the Siccus desert in Kaliphlin. The castle's guards have sworn to protect caravan routes through the desert against rogues and robber bands. Major Sirius Artanc leads his men into battle (if need be). You can find Sirius on the fourth picture, on the right. The idea to "Dunehill Castle" was threefold: First to create a cubic castle (similar to Coltherstone Castle Keep by frumpy), secondly to avoid my usual light grey/dark grey slopes but to use tan/dark tan for the rocky bits, thirdly to try some decent glass windows. And fourthly I needed to add a monkey because many people have asked me where my "iconic figures" have disappeared. So, let us move to the glass windows: I don't know whether you are familiar with "La Sagrada Familia" in Barcelona. I saw it a few months ago and was overwhelmed by the colours and lights. So this is why I used a red/orange and a blue window for the castle. .. and I have used all light grey legs I could find I hope you like this and I am awaiting your feedback! Edit: I would like to claim UoP credits for: Architecture wall techniques advanced windows and window frames Landscape Design sand dunes Anthropology life in Kaliphlin
  4. Hi 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) Some of you may know the great "Sea Serpent". The set came out in 1992 and for some strange reasons, which I cannot reproduce, I happen to have bought the set (although that was the time of my dark ages). Therefore I was lucky to still find much of the original parts, including the sail. Some, of course, have disappeared over time. 6057 Sea Serpent (Revisited & Original): 6057 Sea Serpent: Once again, I have added Mitgardian colours. The gallion had to change from yellow to blue due to absence of the two smaller bricks. It is still a very charming ship. Small but efficient. 6057 Sea Serpent Revisited: My new version applies some of the new techniquesin hull design and my brick-sail-approach. Colour-wise I have tried to stick to the original. So far, this is the "revisited" version which I like the best. C&C welcome!

    [MOC] Enterprise (first try)

    Hello Space-Travellers! The MOC I will present today was built some time back together with my children, who wanted to have a model of the USS Enterprise to play with: So we decided to re-use an old Millenium Falcon to build the main part of the space ship: We managed to get the basic shape alright, but in terms of stability the ship was a nightmare... The weight of the main part was a challenge. The ship was supposed to be able to stand on the ground without tipping over. (Don't worry, I'll show the crew in a later post) As counterbalance the back of the ship also had to become heavy. I.e. I had to use as many bricks as possible to add weight. (And this is why it does not look so good...) The front part of the ship could be separated from the back as you can see by means of technic bricks. That was reasonably stable. A lot of SNOT technique was used for the engine room. There was also room for a small shuttle: So, for a while, my kids were happy (and I had actually dreamt of a playable Enterprise since I was a kid myself). However, after a while I felt I had to redesign the ship because of the mechanical strain on several parts of the construction. (And I did not like the drives). This is why what I present to you is actually no more. Yet I thought it was worth while presenting (even if it has a kind of "this is not how to do it"-idea to it) as my 2000th post in this forum. Thanks for watching!

    [MOC] The Apple Watch - Freebuild

    The boy stood, watching, waiting. Autumn had come with a promise of ripe fruit and sweetness. The day passed by and so did grumpy carrot farmers from nearby Thorshaven. But the boy did not move. He stood in front of the tree and watched the apple. His apple. He waited for it to fall down. I would like to claim UoP credits for: - Anthropology: countryside scene. - Agriculture: harvest time. The scene is set in Mitgardia (when it is not covered with snow). Builder's note: I often struggle in finding good titles for my MOCs that help to draw attention to my creations. Maybe it will work out this time...

    Comic: The Curse of the Simian God (Part 4)

    Comic Hi, here is the fourth part of The Curse of the Simian God So, this part ends the "prelude" to the story. To continue I will have to build a lot of MOCs and to take a lot of pictures (which has not happened yet). BTW: "simia" is Latin for "monkey". Thanks for watching! Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 I hope you like it - C&C welcome!
  8. A New Hope Home for the City Watch Last week Samuel Marron and his men were able to move to a new headquarter: The captain was quite happy about this. The new place offered a secret exit through a rock piece in the foundation. Inside in the cellar were some installations said to be of "Elven origin". (Note: Well, it does not come out in this picture but it has got something to do with barrels...) C&C welcome!

    Comic: The Curse of the Simian God

    Comic Hi, I have been working on a new comic for the pirate section for some time and now I am able to start with the first part of The Curse of the Simian God (end of part 1) I hope you like it - C&C welcome!
  10. Hello, some time ago dwarven attack boats had been sighted in Tradewind Bay. Noone but the dwarves knew where they were heading. Their destination was a secret dwarf mine on a smaller island in Tradewind Bay. The mine was founded by Gangrosh (The Hammer). A statue of Gangrosh can be found near the entrance. A mechanism to open a secret door is included: What makes this mine special are the long railway paths leading into the mountain. This allows easy transport of mithril. ... and gold. Builder's notes: Building was fun, but photo-editing was an hour-eating nightmare. This is the largest display I have tried to capture. Was not so easy. So this is what has finally become of MOD: 7036 Dwarves Mine. C&C welcome!

    MOC: Monkey Statues on Pirate Island

    Hi, having seen vitreoleums reference to Monkey Island, I would like to present a Monkey Statue myself: I hope you like this - C&C welcome!
  14. Hello world! I would like to continue (and close) 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 part 4:MOC: Updating the Classics (4) - 1752 Crossbow Boat Revisited part 5:MOC: Updating the Classics (5) - 1547 Black Knights Boat (Revisited) ) I think I have "updated" most of what could be found in 1980s and 1990s. So (drumroll) here it is, the final chapter: 6017 King's Oarsmen (Revisited) 6017 King's Oarsmen: This is a charming little boat, with two dragon heads. And with two brave knights. Sadly, I did not have any more of the originals. So I have chosen some of my oldest knights. The boat had a sail - so I could (once more) use my brickbuilt-sail-approach! 6017 King's Oarsmen (Revisited): This time I wanted to create something special... .... with a monkey in it... Monkey is sailing away happily... As you can see I have found a counterpart for the original two dragonheads. I am very happy to be able to close this with something funny. Thanks for watching!
  15. Hello world! 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 part 4:MOC: Updating the Classics (4) - 1752 Crossbow Boat Revisited) I am running out of original castle ships - but here is one more and one more will follow and close this series. 1547 Black Knights Boat (Original & Revisited): 1547 Black Knights Boat (Original): As you can see I do not have the original knights. What is best about this boat is the dragon head as a gallion. That TLG designer at that time was really good. 1547 Black Knights Boat (Revisited): So, it was key to keep the dragon head - I have only modified it slightly and changed the colours to have less contrasting colours. The new boat seems to come from Mitgardia. One more to come! I hope you enjoyed it. C&C welcome!
  16. Hi 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!
  17. Hi 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

    Hello, 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!
  20. Hello 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

    Callenge 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

    Hello, 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

    Hi, 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

    Hi, 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
