  1. [MOC] Who wants to play tennis?

    Hi everybody, This is my new moc. I tried to be the most reallistic as possible, with a lot of details, electric cables, old walls. there is an outside tennis court, two squash courts and a ping pong table on the 2nd floor. I hope you'll enjoy my first MOC of the year.... Brick on!!!

  2. RULES CHANGED, PLEASE REFER TO THIS POST. Hey guys, I decided to create this topic and the main idea came from this and this post (so special thanks to @danth and @Digger of Bricks!). Here, I’ll post three or more great MOC’s regularly as I started to do in the Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion thread. If there’s enough interest, I’ll post everyday, and if not this topic will unfortunately be abandoned so it’s to you to encourage me and keep the topic active and alive I would like to highlight three things before I start: In every post, there will be different architectural styled MOC’s, i.e. one day Art Deco another day Gothic. You’re free to post your favorite MOC’s, but please don’t post different architectures in one post without precising it. Last and the most important: Have fun admiring and taking inspiration from those great MOC’s Here are the ones I already posted in the Modulars Rumours and Discussion topic. Starting from tomorrow or Sunday, I’ll post new ones. Top three MOC’s IMO in Baroque architecture: 1. This incredible Baroque Church by @Jellyeater: 2. This amazingly detailed MOC by @pj_bosman: 3. This great shaped modular by @cimddwc: Here are the three best Baroque MOC’s IMO! What do you think about them? Would you buy modulars like those if TLG made? Here are the Steampunk ones (idea by @Nexogeek): 1. This incredible layout made together by @castor-troy and @domino39 (they also made one MOD of the PR and the MS and two MOD’s of the CC included in this layout. But they look so different that they are more MOC then MOD): https://www.flickr.com/photos/lego-castor/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/76884750@N03/ https://flickr.com/photos/140096277@N02/sets/72157665461184619 2. These great steampunk modulars by @adde51: https://flickr.com/photos/124068149@N02/sets/72157677981987356 3. These very interesting modulars by @Zilmrud who as well made great MOD’s of the PC and the BB: https://flickr.com/photos/136715026@N08/sets/72157680169877316 Here are the three most gorgeous Steampunk MOC’s IMO! What do you think of them? Would you buy modulars like those if TLG ever made? Cheers!
  3. MOC, Modular Building: Cozy Pub

    Pub by Thomas van Urk, on Flickr I recently made an interior for a moc that I had made a few years back, and finally photographed it. The facade is inspired by a real building in Leiden. interior by Thomas van Urk, on Flickr interior by Thomas van Urk, on Flickr interior by Thomas van Urk, on Flickr cozy pub by Thomas van Urk, on Flickr The inspiration: Breestraat Leiden by Thomas van Urk, on Flickr
  4. [MOC] A Summer In Tuscany

    A Summer In Tuscany Hello guys! I've been fairly present in the forums lately, but haven't released a MOC in about seven months, so it's about time! A Summer In Tuscany by Pau Padrós, en Flickr This is “A Summer in Tuscany”, packing 4497 pieces, mimicking the sizes of Assembly Square and towering 33.6 cm (13 inches) tall. There’s a certain je-ne-sais-quoi that some wonderful modulars capture, and I wanted to capture some of that in mine as well. What better place to look for it than Italy, then? Inspired mostly on the buildings and summery atmosphere of the Emilia-Romagna (I know the name doesn’t say that…) – Piacenza, Parma, Modena and Bologna, to name a few. A Summer In Tuscany Side by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Another point of view on the two façades. Vines climbing up walls and fences, flags being blown by the soft breeze. Gelato signorina? Have one at Giolitti! Have fun looking for references hidden throughout the whole model! PD: Genie’s lamp as decoration on the yellow building The Orange Building: A Summer In Tuscany: Orange Building by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Fun and reckless! Orange isn't the safest colour to build a modular out of, and even less when you decide to stuck a 45-degree façade on it. Nevertheless, I feel this building is the crazier part of the model and brings that needed extravaganza to make a great modular. The rooftop detailing is subtle but one of my favourites Ground Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Giolitti Gelati by Pau Padrós, en Flickr “Giolitti Gelati” has all the ice-cream flavours one can ask for: Lime, Orange, Olive Pistachio Green or Flame Vanilla Yellow, all wordplays on Lego colour names. Middle Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Le Lampade di Roberto by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Roberto has any lamp you might need in stock. From a Luxo Jr. studio lamp to a cinema focus. Many of the lamps are from Lego’s official modular (not just Palace Cinema's) Top Floor: I'm sorry I didn't take a picture of this, but rendering took way too long and stopped it. Inside is a stained glass artist studio. Fairly cool, huh The Yellow Building: Didn't take a specific shot for this one, as it would be too similar to the second one. It feels like the anchor of the model. (Call me crazy for saying this), but it's the building I played it safest with -and I know it's yellow! . It works as a harmonious counterpart to the Orange building. Adding as shallow dark orange roofing is something I'd been wanting to do since I finished Italian Villa. Desires one by one fulfill themselves, don't they? Ground Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Bike Shop by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Hard at work, trying to fix a greasy bicycle. Through the back door, it leads to a little garden. He’s so concentrated in fact, he hasn’t seen somebody peeking through the window… The same "somebody" who's been secretly placing flowers on the man's outiside bicycles! Middle Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Puppet Theatre by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Shush! The play is about to start. Suitable for kids and adults alike. Curtains closed, phones off. Oh! Forgot we're not in the present! Top Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Astronomers' Club by Pau Padrós, en Flickr As night falls and stars start sprinkling all around the sky, seeing planets is the new black for our ABS friends! One final picture: A Summer In Tuscany's Best Friends by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Magic Shop and Sweets & Co. hugging their new friend and compainion to the modular street. Hope you enjoyed my little tour around my newest model. Drop in any comments (hopefully praises ) or dislikings, of course if you feel like so. Thanks again, have a very very nice day wherever you are in our wounderful world!

  8. Hey guys, I know that several people before me created similar threads but here, there are some specific people from whom I would really like to learn how they design modulars or non-modular buildings, from where they get inspiration, how do they start to design and which techniques they use to create their incredible buildings - so I mention them here.

  9. Lego 10260 Downtown Diner XL MOD

    Here is my take on modifying the Downtown Diner. I used two sets, and sort of mirrorbuild one set. The footprint is 56 studs. I widened the stairs on both sides with one stud to reach the 56 studs.
  10. Hi dear EB members! I'd like to introduce you my latest MOC, Mr. Groove's Pet Shop, which is a 16x32 corner modular building. I used only the pieces from the 10218 Pet Shop set to build this one. I'll only post one image of it here, because the main reason I've built it is the video: I needed to make a video animation of it for a contest. Let me know if you like it! :) Image: Video:
  11. MOC: Kahuka's Koffee

    Hello all. I've finally completed my last build of the year with Kahuka's Koffee. A building influenced predominantly by neo-classical architecture. It has taken about 3 months to complete. I've wanted to try my hand at more varied styles of architecture. It's been 4 years since I last had a go at a classical style. The problem I find with this style is that it tends to be all one or very few colours and it makes picking out details more difficult so I've opted to vary the colours of floors and put highlights in where I could. I wanted to include a rounded roof mainly to finally use the PAB cup full of 1x4 slopes in black I got a while back. I also was keen to incorporate balconies and many arches - common in classical architecture. There is an interior but only for the ground level floor (Said here in the UK), but I've not chosen to build upper floors as it would take too long and frankly I just didn't have enough plates to build another 5 floors If you're wondering why it's called Kahuka's Koffee, there is a subtle hint of the Islanders theme in the facade. I've included a slightly updated version of my streamlined delivery van which I made some years ago to give some busyness feeling to the street. Anyway here's all 9 pics; If you wish to view them at flickr my stream is here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/ If you have any questions about techniques I used or any comments please feel free. Cheers!

  15. [MOC] Tuscany cottage

    Hi everyone, today I present a MOC that I just realized recently for a specific occasion: the Lego Event in Florence (Brick in Florence Festival 2017). Tuscany landscapes have always been in my heart, in the last 15 years I have traveled several times in spring and summer in a specific area of Tuscany that is the "Crete Senesi". In this geographical area that starts from the south of Siena to the town of Pienza there are landscapes formed by sinuous hills with cottages and cypresses. For years I have been photographing these areas and I could not miss creating a MOC dedicated to this land. As an inspiration I used a picture of mine that you can see here: http://www.unafotoalgiorno.it/portfolio/visgallery.php?cat=paesaggi&id=11838 Between design and construction it took only one month, I think it's one of the MOCs I've made faster in my story than AFOL! I had little time but the ideas clear enough of what I wanted to accomplish. With just 4 Bricklink orders made all the same day, I did nothing but wait for them to come home and then all the construction took place within a couple of weeks (in time scraps). It is a very simple moc, it is not composed of special techniques. I still had a lot of fun building it because I partly resumed my memories of photographic travels I did in the past. flickr gallery: https://www.flickr.com/photos/sdrnet/albums/72157690184763535 Hope you like it and if you have questions I am available! Bye, Sandro
  16. MOC: 505 Wasabi (Skyscraper)

    More than 42 inches tall, More than 6000 pieces, this hip, modern apartment skyscraper is my second tallest and second biggest MOC, located in the heart of Wasabi District. 505 WASABI Includes amenities such as a rooftop swimming pool up top and Wasabi District's first Dunkin Donuts. (Competitor to my Starbucks!) More interior pics coming soon, I'll keep you guys posted! But for now, enjoy the pics, and let me know what you guys think. Thanks for looking!
  17. Wasabi District 2017

    Hey guys! Have you been following wooootles on Flickr? Or @wooootles on Instagram? Well, you guys should. Something big is coming to Wasabi District. I have been updating my progress log. Check it out! Full build coming soon!
  18. Hi there. I'm kind of new here, so if my post here is wrong somehow, let me know. I'd like to share a MOC with you, an alt build of 21310 Old Fishing Store. I love the Old Fishing Store, but I also love the Creator 3-in-1 sets because I like taking them apart and building something new later (I don't tend to leave sets up on display for more than a couple of weeks - I just don't have the space). So I made a smaller little lodge or store (there's a bedroom in the loft). The roof is partially flat and partially angles down, and you can lift the roof on the hinges to see into the 2nd floor. There's a tower with the telescope (and a storage area in the tower) and a swing hanging below it. I've got a pond (or at least part of one) with fish, with the boy trying to catch one, and the cat and bird also hoping for some fish. The captain is at a campfire with a lady friend toasting marshmallows. (boy it was hard making a fire with so few red, orange and yellow pieces... I did cheat and use one flame piece from another set). If you want to see more photos, or download the LXF file, you can do so here: https://bricksafe.com/pages/CathyVT/cathysfishinglodge . The step by step instructions that LDD creates when you click "building guide mode" are terrible (doing things in an impossible order, like framing the windows all around, then putting in the window) but I'm working on a solution to that...

  19. 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.

  20. Hey all, I recently compiles this list of building tips and tricks on how to make more advanced Lego trees. The video includes ways to build sturdier trees, ideas for adding different angles to the branches, and ways to increase the foliage of a branch. Check it out on my YouTube channel.
  21. Help in improving tank suspension

    Hi all, So recently I have been building a T-90A at 1:25 scale. I solved a lot of problems but i am stack with an under performing suspension system. The problem lies at the road wheels, the way they are attached to the suspension, and the traction between them and the tracks, not the mechanism itself (which is fairly responsive). Let me explain: (sorry for the picture quality, it won't let me upload better ones) There are two sets of 4185 wheels, attached to a 30374 light saber blade (which acts as the spinning axle). The light saber blade is itself attached to a 6632 1x3 thin lift arm, which is then attached to a 15462 5L axle with stop that acts as the pivoting axle of the suspension. The suspension is made of orthodontic rubber bands, but the smaller Lego rubber bands should work as well (i tried to explain the poor quality pictures as best as i can). The problem: The light saber blade creates a lot of friction with both the wheels and the axle socket of the liftarm, so when the tank moves, the wheels won't spin (which is a problem). I am asking here for help, does anyone more experienced than me has a better solution (note that the overall dimensions of the suspension, must not change in order to keep up with the scale). Thanks in advance!
  22. [MOC] Bricksfield Public Elementary School

    Here's my upcoming MOC, the Public Elementary School! With the Roman History Museum and the Fountain, this is going to complete my central city square..It contains 3090 bricks. Let me know what you think! P.S. If someone were interested in building this, you can check it out HERE
  23. The Glacier Falls Lodge!

    This was one of my first large-scale MOCs, that came before the Orient Express Thriller or Winterfield Academy were even conceived! (back in 2014) I had watched the miniseries for "The Shining", and I've always been enamored with National Park lodges. So, the product was The Glacier Falls Lodge, the official lodge for Brickler Mountain National Park! A perfect getaway destination/luxury hotel catering to any minifig's vacation needs! This MOC went through at least six different iterations, before finally being pared down to a (very) downsized version fit for LEGO Ideas. At its prime, though, the Lodge contained an enormous lobby, full dining room and kitchen, and several guest rooms upstairs, with two bathrooms per floor (kind of in the style of Chico Hot Springs in Montana). The first iteration was built in 2014, during that summer we had a major fire that caused us to evacuate. This hotel was thrown in a box and taken with us in a car at night fleeing to Seattle. Later, when the fire season was over and we returned, the hotel sat on the desk for several months without being worked on. The Second Iteration had a change to the tower, it was more octagonal and separated from the roof. And I used the Town Hall Skylights for the Lobby. The Third Iteration sadly has no pictures, as my computer had crashed and we lost them. But it was pretty ugly. I had the idea to try and make octagonal towers on either side of the main doors, with the idea not turning out very well. That iteration was fragile, and fell apart easily. The Fourth Iteration was a HUGE model, with an upgraded, fancier porch and a sign out front! This was also when I made it into more of a Victorian style hotel, with a large wrap around porch, and the two towers on either side. These were half-octagonal towers, which made it a lot easier to stay together. (I had actually figured out how to build them, and gotten the pieces for it). The roof was a major challenge, but we made it work! This iteration also had an enormous, well thought out and beautifully built dining room, as well as a large kitchen with three to four walk in freezers! The Fifth Iteration was downsized in terms of length to make it fit through the door, lol! The basic hotel structure remained the same, however, with the exception of a large rearranging of the rooms inside. This was the first project that I submitted to LEGO Ideas, before having to downsize it again for it to be accepted. This was by far the best iteration of the six, and the only one we have interior pictures of. 5th Iteration furniture and Grand Fireplace 5th Iteration First Floor Porch Detail Lobby Facing the Dining Room Lobby picture 2 Piano Music Room Lobby Picture 3 The cool part was that the interior walls of the 5th Iteration were removable! 1st/2nd floors This was also the first iteration to have major interior decorating and fancy chandeliers! The 6th and Final Iteration of this MOC kept most of the basic structure, subtracting much of the width, in order to make the 3000 piece LEGO Ideas limit. This unfortunately was at the cost of sacrificing the entirety of the interior minus several pieces of furniture. This iteration currently, sadly does not exist anymore. It was torn down and the pieces used for Winterfield Academy (pictured below) However the 6th Iteration is still up on LEGO Ideas right now, and currently has 2036 Supporters! If you would like to give your support as well, I'll include the link here. We would really appreciate any support given! :) https://ideas.lego.com/projects/66655f37-9622-4836-a2cb-797e916f4e2b Anyways, that's the whole story on the MOC! This was by far (not counting my disastrous attempt at a county courthouse when I was 15) my first successful MOC that I thought looked relatively decent! Please tell me what you think, anything you like about it, etc., in your replies! I'll finish with a couple shots from last December and our promotional Winter Photoshoot! :) Thanks for reading! :)

  25. MOC Rural timbered house

    My latest MOC is part of community winter-themed build. The goal was to brickbuild houses from Faller's catalog (or mimick their style for a unified look of village houses). I chose this house specifically for the timbered look. I found it attractive with the angled timbers, but had many diffuculties building it. In the end, I made some compromises, mostly due to easier transport and setup at the exhibition. The floor plan is 40 x 26 studs with the entrance sticking out a bit. The height of the building is 23 bricks. It is large for a minifig scale, but it was not possible to include all the hallmarks of the original. So just imagine the rooms inside with multiple beddings for hikers and climbers somewhere high in the Alps (there's no interiors, so let your imagination go wild). The original model has a much more detailed entrance. I intentionally built just a small porch, with steps covered with snow on the edges. The back and the sides of the building are similar with the repeating pattern. Since it's a winter-themed build, there's snow on the roof and window sills are empty. The flowers will be planted in the spring. My favourite detail are the horns just bellow the roof. It's not so clearly visible on the photos. Considering the size of the buildings, I am satisfied with how it turned out. There's definitely many shortages, such as the angled timbers (secured on the back with tape), a bit wobbly roof on Technic base (not an expert, so it's not as sturdy as it should be). I wanted it light and easy to transfer, so I awoided thicker walls to secure the angled tiles. However, I'm sure it will survive the transport to the exhibition.
