  1. I've always found something interesting about airport architecture from the mid-century and have wanted to do some other parts of an airport since my first class lounge a few years ago as seen here https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/26143957214/in/dateposted-public/ so I guess this is something of a follow up. It was all originally centered around the baggage carousel which went through several revisions. I went with a circular one which I think were quite rare from all the source material I looked at. I included a shop, information desk and toilets between the columns for some interest all based on a 60's style. I've used various patterns and mid-century elements in the structure walls and ceiling. No one single airport was the inspiration but a mix of many. I started this project just before a recent trip to NYC of which I visited the TWA terminal, If I'd started it after my trip my ambitions may of gotten the better of me! :D What an inspiring sight it was though! 4 images in all this time; You can find them on my flickr is if so prefer here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/ Regards
  2. My entry was selected to the Fan Vote phase of "Build a Vintage car to cruise the streets of LEGO® Modular Buildings!". If you like it, please vote it before Dec-4th, to be an official "LEGO Gift with Purchase" set: https://ideas.lego.com/challenges/bafd4186-bb49-4eb0-903f-910415f04391/application/080bc359-fa49-4bd9-894c-2b627ba2abc7 More details: The title came from the movie "Jailhouse Rock" because of the striped T-shirt of the "bad boy". It is a late 50's muscle car tuning. On the main picture the couple is watching the freshly installed supercharger and on the last one the first try is visible :) One of the most interesting thing about this car is the brickbuilt flame decoration which was inspired by one of my Matchboxes from my childhood. Some tricky solutions were used to build the flame decoration on the hood especially without the supercharger which is visible on one of the pictures. I prefer this solution instead of stickers to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds. It is (mostly) a studless build in Speed Champions style which means a 6 studs wide car with a 4 studs wide windscreen. However the front wheels came from a City set to make them similar to the rear ones which are a bit bigger Creator wheels to make the car more dynamic. I hope you enjoy this car. Many thanks for your votes and comments!

    [MOC] Vintage Flatbed

    My first mundane not-sci-fi-or-fantasy MOC, an old-fashioned flatbed truck of nonspecific make, year and model. Initial concept for it was somewhat more specific—something along the lines of a 50s Chevy—but the design quickly mutated wherever available parts (and building inexperience) necessitated, into the odd copyright-dodging Frankenstein's Monster you see before you. For instance, trucks of the era didn't typically have such prominent bambi-bashers. Okay, this bit wasn't really necessary, I just felt like it needed a bit of ruggedness. Still managed some decently evocative shaping, I thought. (also the mirrors can of course be adjusted, as per my moving joints rule) It's generally good practice to tie things down, though. Oh well, Garry is usually a careful driver. Now it's actually flat, sans railings and cargo. (but the most important railing remains: the guard that keeps Garry's perilously unsecured cargo from crashing through the rear window and into his head. If you've ever wondered what those were for on real trucks, now you know) Underside, not much to see here. Interior, with an old printed piece for dashboard/instruments. The most LEGO kind, really. Garry's buddies relax after a long day of... hauling crates full of random grey machine-looking parts to the mill, or whatever it is you use flatbed trucks for. I'm not much of a Town person. That's all for now! Full gallery can be found here.
  4. Hello, My name is Danny, build in 1977 and i live in Belgium. I've been lurking for some years now on Eurobricks, mostly in the Star Wars and Sci-Fi sections, and everyday I check the frontpage for news. When I was young I loved playing with Lego, it stopped when I grew up. Three years ago I rediscovered Lego when I bought toys for my son. And in 2014 I bougth my first set, the Imperial Star Destroyer (75055), since then I'm collecting Star Wars, classic space sets, some of the architecture sets and Lego Idea's sets. I have a soft spot for the old garage sets from the 50s -60s, I'm collecting those old garage parts and building replica's and moc's with them. Groeten, Danny
  5. ^ Traditional 1929 Ford Model A-V8 hotrod on 1932 Ford deucerails build circa 1959, featuring fullhouse blown Mercury flathead with open headers, dual exhaust for streetuse, red tuck'n'roll vinyl upholstery, steelwheels painted red, skinny bias ply Firestone tyres up front, Firestone dirtrackers in the rear, Pontiac taillights, chopped windshield, clubplaque hanging from the spreaderbar. ;) ^ Loosly based on this car. ^ I got inspired by the cab-piece that came with the icecreamtruck or RV-camping and canoeingset. I thought that would be the perfect Ford Model A rearend: ^ I build it with a regular red interior, but really want it with ^this^ dark red to give it a more authentic look... I'm just missing a vital piece... And just for fun: ^ Meet Woody. The happy new owner of a hip model A-V8 hotrod. :) ^ Just to compare it with the Charger But to really appreciate this hotrod you've gotta listen to this Jack Baymoore recording: A-V8 Boogie! And please, play loud... ;) [media] [/media]

    MOC: Octan Luxe - 50's car

    The Octan "Luxe" was launched in the late 50's as Octan Motors first official car to try and take a slice out of the growing market; it was met with lukewarm feedback but due to its luxurious interior its sales went through the roof. Unfortunately, not many of them have survived to this day and are extremely hard to get hold of nowadays. You can find more images on my Flickr photostream. Enjoy!

    MOC: ER0L's Garage

    Hi all, some of you might have seen this already on Flickr or on Brick Town Talk but I thought it might be of some interest so I decided to upload it here, too. This is the first step of a bigger project which is meant to feature the cars. This part (I've called it "ER0L's Garage 1.0") consists of a 50s style Diner with a sign and a small gas station (rather part of it). And there is a new Rod, too, which is called Baby Blue. The project will be continued, but since this part took such a long time (being my first non-automotive stuff) I rather won't tell any details. I'll add it here when there is a "2.0 version" or something There are some traces of different stuff ("Cars", "Friends Park Café") in it which I tried to melt into something new. It's not meant as a design study, but as a functional thing - something being used by minifigs. That means that if there is a barstool they must be able to sit on it - even if more beautiful barstools can be imagined. The diner has a detachable roof and a detachable back. The main point here might be the slanted columns to get a 50s appeal. Surprisingly this can be done without stressing the structure in any way. Some details: Wurlitzer (refers to several known designs, but the upside-down front is probably a new aspect) “Cars” Bar with snotted napkin dispenser (own design) some "Cars" furniture which I designed some months ago V8 Diner sign (own design, the V8 idea is taken from 8487 Flo’s V8 Café, but modified) another sign above the entrance door gas pump (bracket-based, rather looks like something already known, but I couldn’t find an exact reference) The fridge is taken from 10197 Fire Brigade (slightly modified, I couldn't think of a better design), the bubble-gum machine from 3061 Friends Park Café, just like some of the little things a diner needs. Some more pics: The Rod named Baby Blue is based on the Vintage Truck (see http://www.eurobrick...25#entry1416045), but turned out to something quite different. The main point here is the sun shield which is fixed with some upside down technique inwards. Using the red crowbar as an exhaust might be a new aspect, at least I haven't seen it before. That's about it so far, thanks for looking, C&C welcome as usual. Pics are linked to Flickr, some more pics of the rod you can find here.
