  1. Alex Pendable

    Hello from Paris, France

    Hello everyone, My name is Alexandre, I'm 31 and I live near Paris in france. I'am found of lego and space (I work for a space compagny in France). I like to create MOC's and I try to animate some of them! My favorite theme is, so , star wars and paticulary the UCS collection! See you soon on the forrum! Alex
  2. Do you feel it? Feel these smells? In the air there is a quaint mixture of flavors of fresh baked bread, strong coffee, young cheese, spring flowers and of course the most fashionable perfume. Dear friends, welcome to Paris! I invite you for a walk along the Parisian pedestrian streets. In this set I decided to recreate a little piece of this beautiful city. A wide pedestrian street is divided into 2 narrow streets to simulate the winding streets of Montmartre. This project is called "Parisian alleys" This is the continuation of my modular pedestrian street. Like the first set this set has its own interesting story and plot for the game. This time the plot is related to with magic and dark forces. Behind the gloomy door there is the office of Madame Brochant, the famous fortune-teller and witch. Get ready to meet with ghosts and evil spirits! Inside the three buildings of this set there are: Bakery; Artist's workshop; Shop of paintings; The room of a young writer girl; Cafe "Green Windmill" Cheese shop; Fashion boutique. This is a very detailed set with beautiful interiors and buildings.

  3. I've built almost every set in the LEGO Architecture series, and I'm always excited when a new set is available for the first time. While I really enjoy the variety that the new "Skylines" sets have added to the Architecture range, I don't like that we haven't been seeing quite as many sets based on a single standalone buildings since they were introduced. That's why I was pleased to here that we would be getting three new standalone models this year. I admit that I was a bit underwhelmed with the photos of the Arc de Triomphe set when they were released - I didn't like that intricate carved details were reduced to a single statuette.OVERVIEW:The model contains 386 pieces, and has an MSRP of 39.99$. (This seems too expensive since it contains small and basic parts, and we have been seeing well under .08 cents per piece in recent additions to the Architecture series.)BUILD: I built about half of the model using only the photo on the front of the box. I was unable to complete the model in this way for two reasons... 1) There is an error in the photo on the front of the box. 2) There is a lot of clever SNOT construction techniques used in the upper half of the model.Before getting into the details of the mistake on the cover and in the instructions, I do want to call out a few of the more interesting techniques. The arches slide over the 'Carved' sections containing the statues, which are offset from the rest of the model.I like how you assemble the panels containing the statue which are 1/2 stud offset from the base as a single assembly. This makes the construction process simpler. Assembling the top section of the corniced roof.I also liked seeing how the final level of the roof came together. Brackets and headlight bricks are used to good effect to ensure everything lines up correctly.THE MISTAKE:When trying to build a model using only the photo on the cover, it's critical that the model was assembled correctly before taking the photos. There should be a gray plate beneath the white plate in the tiny sliver of the photo which you can see behind the archway. The same error is reflected in the instruction booklet. They ask you to assemble four identical modules and attach them to the baseplate built on previous steps. The module which goes in the rear-left corner is shown without the layer of gray plate on the bottom. (My guess is the software they use to design the instructions doesn't prevent you from placing one brick on top of another - the module was probably copy/pasted and accidentally pushed one plate too deep.) As you can see, the left module is missing the gray plate. To be fair, it's not a major mistake in the instructions, and people who follow the instructions closely probably won't notice this mistake as they would simply snap all four modules into place as indicated.Closing Thoughts:I have enjoyed visiting Paris, and I agree that the Arc de Triomphe is an important landmark and a great example of Neoclassical architecture. Unfortunately, this is not my favorite recent addition to the LEGO Architecture series (especially since most of the recent sets have been excellent.) I would have liked to see them make the model a little larger so they could have included additional detail in the carved panels surrounding the building. Further, the set is overpriced at 39.99$ for less than 400 pieces. To make matters worse, the set doesn't include any especially large or interesting parts to add to your collection. If you can find it for a steep discount, it's not a bad model, but I'd strongly recommend other models in the series (Louvre, US Capitol, etc...) if you haven't tried them already.What do you think of the model? I'd love to hear your thoughts!Thanks,---Tom AlphinP.S. For additional photos of the build, and more involved discussions about Form vs Applied Decoration in Architecture, feel free to read the longer review I posted to http://brickarchitect.com/2017/review-21036-arc-de-triomphe/
  4. Hello everybody, a long time ago I was lucky enough to have my Millennium Falcon kindly blogged on these pages...

  6. Bonjour à tous - greetings from Paris, and the start of my journey towards 10 posts!
  7. Support France and say no to terrorism. This creations is driven by the sad news of the terrorist attack in France. It turns out to be rather late for me to publish it here. I have to wait for the arrival of red fence in order to complete my creation. Hope you agree with me -- the wait is worthwhile. Fences are the best LEGO parts to be used in this creation. In my first idea, I would like to build the MOC in the iconic tre-colour of red, white and blue. However, the blue fences are too costly. ^^" After all, I want a peaceful world so that I can concentrate on my creation....

  10. Hello everybody ! I wanted to share with you my first modular MOC; La Poste Du Louvre ! [EDIT] You can now find the lxf files here : http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/samlr/PosteDuLouvre/floor_1.lxf http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/samlr/PosteDuLouvre/floor_2.lxf http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/samlr/PosteDuLouvre/floor_3.lxf http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/samlr/PosteDuLouvre/roof.lxf http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/samlr/PosteDuLouvre/complete.lxf Try to find the skeleton ! [/EDIT] For a big city project, I wanted to have parisian type buildings buildings. I first thought about La Poste Du Louvre because every city needs a post office and because it's typically the kind of building you'll find in Paris. It's known by everyone how live in Paris because it's the only post office opened 24/7. It's life saving when you forgot to send you university inscription form or your income tax declaration :D The architect who designed the building in 1878 is Julien Guadet. It inspired me for the front of the building. The roof and the interior are from my imagination. You can find more picture on my flickr gallery : And this is a link to wikipedia article about La Poste Du Louvre : http://fr.wikipedia....trale_du_Louvre It's made of 4500 parts. I plan to add two side wings to bring it to 96 studs long, and correct some details. Before I do this, I'd really like to know what you think about it and what you believe could be improved ? Best regards, SamLR
  11. I built this for the Sydney Brick Show running this week. It's my first MOC since I was a teenager. I have always loved Paris, and always loved this scene in the book and movie of Les Miserables, thought it was time to make a LEGO version. But as I love Star Wars and super heroes I thought it needed a few touches. :-)

    MOC: Avenue Saint-Jacques

    Hi everyone. This is my latest build named Avenue Saint-Jacques. It is a Haussmann styled building which are found in central Paris in abundance. I have wanted to do a 'Cafe corner' in a grand scale for a long time! It's not a build based on any real building that I know of. Most of these buildings have diagonal corners which I could not perfect to the point of being happy with. Also typically most buildings are seven stories high, this is only 6 as I ran out of bricks! Its about 76cm to the top of the chimneys. Part of the reason it is not a typical modular which I have done before was the fact I wanted to make an 'Art Nouveau' style Metro station and had to raise the street level to make steps down to the platform and also since it is an avenue the pavement had to be wider. In all its taken a couple of months to complete. The most difficult part of the build was incorporating the hinge into the side of the building for easier access to the apartments. I probably have not accurately portrayed the interior details and fittings so most of it is made up! I felt the building would have been quite sad without any interior details. On the ground floor there is a Cafe with street facing kiosk for pastries on the go, a clothes shop selling fine ladies wear and finally the Metro station entrance. The first floor has an office and a dental surgery. The four upper floors have apartments, with a top floor penthouse with a full balcony. Some apartments have kitchens and bathrooms which I have tried to get decent photo's to see the details. A central staircase allows access to all the rooms. The whole scene is based sometime in the past, not quite sure when but before the comforts of technology! I have added several exterior and interior pics for now. All others can be found at the link at the bottom of the post. There are 22 rooms in all. More photo's can be found on my flick here: http://www.flickr.co...s/52656812@N04/ All thoughts welcome!
