PLEASE SUPPORT THIS PROJECT here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/158145
  3. Inspired by the Speed Champions cars. Last year I built a car showroom to show them off. Al's Autos is built on 3 large baseplates. On the left baseplate the blue and white sign has doubled sided brick plate writing and rotates on a Technic turntable. The showroom has a roller door entry behind the office on the left. It is fully tiled inside and lit with PF LEDs. On the right baseplate the brown turntable also rotates on a Technic turntable. The footpath is designed to match up to the Modular footpaths. My own creation cars are a Pick Up truck with removable Camper. A Ford GT40 reverse engineered from a LEGO YouTube movie. The black Pontiac is a KITT replica and has a working red LED scanner in the front. Next was a service centre / workshop for the showroom.The back section is a parts department. On the right are two service bays. The front one has a working Technic pneumatic hoist. Also PF LED lighting. The shipping containers can fit a Speed Champions car or spare parts. To keep the cars clean I next built a car wash. This has a working Technic based linear actuator to move the brushes back and forward over the car. So after a long day. It's off to the Drive In movies. The diner has a projection room, kitchen, counter, seating and toilet. My own creation cars are two NYPD police cars with working light bars. A yellow NY taxi. The two Porsche 911's are modified with brick headlights and door handles. The ambulance has working LED light bars, headlights and taillights One day I will get around to doing close up and interior photos.
  4. 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... Hope you like it!
  5. 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!
  6. [MOC] MOONEYES headquarters

    My latest build matches my passion for motoring culture: it's the MOONEYES headquarters located in Santa Fe Springs, California. MOONEYES was founded by Dean Moon in 1950, the Santa Fe Springs-based hot rod shop was originally titled Moon Speed Equipment. The Moon crew was a prominent group of go-fast pioneers through the ‘50s and ‘60s, working hand in hand with the likes of legends such as Carroll Shelby — in fact, the first AC Cobra was constructed in the Moon garage. Inspired by the Dean Moon’s history I've recreated the MOON HQ, both the interior and the exterior of the building. In the garage there’re a lot of tools: a roller cabinet, a workbench, the pendant lights, a sink, the column drill press and a lot more. Everything in bright yellow of course. Remarkable the American flag hanged on the wall and the electrical outlets and conduits. What about the surfboard displayed on the wall? The exterior is enjoyable and it features many details. The two rolling shutters and the electricity poles are the ones I prefer. To complete the work I've built the well known and famous MOON pick-up, a ’68 Ford F100, and a Hot Rod based on a ’32 Ford model B. More info and pictures on my flickr. Thanks for stopping by.
  7. MOC Modular Construction Site

    My Name is Ryan Taggart. I design my modulars using LDD, and source bricks through Bricklink & Brickowl. This is my third completed MOC Modular. The Crane is a redesign of the 2006 set 7905-1 (the tower, controls, and rear end are new - the boom is like the set [hard to improve on] ) It also features a home for the 'portaloo' from Service truck 60073-1 The custom printed elements were done by FAB Bricks UK. For details and for the design and thought process visit me @ MOC Pages. http://www.moc-pages.../moc.php/424271 NOW LIVE ON LEGO IDEAS https://ideas.lego.com/projects/129250 UPDATE - 18th Feb 2016 24 DAYS IN 5000+ SUPPORTERS! THANK YOU EVERYONE I've added more images: hope you like it.
  8. 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. Read and see more about the set you can here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/b7c711d8-4e15-4b1f-9d8e-8d71fb5c3824 Please SUPPORT this project on LEGO IDEAS web-site!
  9. I like to present you my Lego town Steinbruck. The name is from Stein=brick & bruck(old German)=bridge. This is my current layout: My MOC and MOD buildings (more detail pictures in the albums; just click the pictures to get there): I'm planning a car wash for the Service Station and will build it in the next months. I also build digital, but can't afford all of them to build with bricks. Click to album.
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. In the past few weeks I've been busy on this beauty: Edificio Metropolis Madrid. The roof was a real pain in the #!@$, but I think it's done nicely. I've only used Google Earth and some photographs of this tourist hot-spot building in the capital of Spain. The only thing not being LEGO are the stickers with the word METROPOLIS and the Golden Arches sign of McDonald's. To watch these pictures in a larger size, please visit my folder at BrickShelf
  13. 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! :)

  15. My Modular Buildings - Pau Padrós

    I've, for some time, been making modular buildings. But I feel they haven't ever been posted as a whole, so I thought, why not do it. I'll try to give to background information and all. This might be updated if I create more! Hope you enjoy! My Flickr, just in case!!: https://www.flickr.com/photos/138575523@N07/ 1. Magic Shop Magic Shop was my very first trial at a modular building, believe it or not. If you take a closer look, the first floor could be the base for any other building above, that's because I had no idea what to build on top of that first floor. About a month later, (while in Ikea for some reason) I remembered a trip to the Black Forest, Germany and all its houses, and that's the result. This Magic Shop is absolutely perfect and that's what I love about it. In my first attempt, I nailed shape, proportions and colour. And that triangular roof is incredibly iconic. Such a wonderful modular! Building Period: Nov 2015 - Jan 2016 Pieces: 2598 on a 32x32 baseplate 2. Italian Villa Oh, god this one's exciting! The Italian Villa (or better said: The Tuscan Villa - that doesn't sound as catchy, does it?) is an ode to the highly underused Flame Yellow colour. The design for this beast mostly comes from a scale model of a Vineyard Villa I own - shape and colourwise, but the detailing and the whole rooftop is absolutely original and wonderful. As a fact, I had this design stopped for some weeks as I didn't know how to make the windows on the middle floor right. While visiting a univeristy campus, I found the solution! This has to be one of my two favourite modular buildings of mine, as a funny note, on a Chinese Lego enthusiasts fan page they marked it as Spanish Villa. As I am techinically from Spain I found this rather funny. And Unikitty's tail in white at the roof! Building Period: Jan 2016 - Feb 2016 Pieces: 2148 on a 32x32 baseplate 3. The Iron Horse My dear Iron Horse... I totally adore this modular. After two highly-successful modulars, this had to at least match the others' quality. Not only I think I managed it, but I also created (again) a very unique modular. By the time I designed this thing, I had all the tools and techniques mastered (no weird bricks showing and all) and I could make this trully the result of my imagination. Although its name and basic structure comes from a restaurant in PortAventura theme park, I translated it to Lego and made the façade even more striking than it was in real life. I also took Brick Bank's colour scheme and exploited it at the max. Not many people know this, at the porch's roofline there are rollerskates used in sand green. A detail I've kept for myself for a long time. Building Period: Mar 2016 - May 2016 Pieces: 1886 on a 32x32 baseplate 4. Old Ben's Gallery Old Ben's Gallery, the Lego version of Barcelona's Casa Amatller and Casa Batlló is my most bizarre approach to a modular. I tried to exploid Pet Shop's concept as much as I could, and this was the result. Although a great looking modular without a doubt, it still is my least favourite of them all, there's so much competition though! This was my first trial at making custom printed pieces for completing totally the façade. This was also my first attempt at making smaller windows with porticos, if you look closer at my previous modulars, they all have insanely huge windows. It's good for a change! Building Period: Aug 2016 - Nov 2016 Pieces: 3148 on two 16x16 baseplates 5. Sweets & Co. Oh my!! This absolutely beautiful 45-degree corner modular is the favourite of mine. So many nice shapes, nice colours, nice piece usages. You can tell I adore this thing, don't you? The idea of a 45-degree building came from seeing the corner buildings in Barcelona, where two houses share the corner. The one on the left is inspired by Casa Batlló's patio (see that gradient going up in Aqua against Royal Blue background, so cool right!?) The building on the right went under four rebuilds. Initially is was supposed to be Venice's Palazzo Ducale. When I noticed it didn't fit, I built a white thingy which looked terrible. Next some sort of castle-like thingy, also terrible (thanks brother for pointing out is was terrible!). And finally I created this pattern, so good! Btw, yes, on the pattern the darker blue is the sorta discontinued Dark Turquoise, why not!? On this modular, I snuck some nice part usages, for instance, Indy's whip as dragon tail on the right door's wrought iron fence. Also the dragon head is a discontinued piece from 2003 which only found its way in some Orient Expedition and Knights' Knigdom II sets! Btw, that fence is in copper, also a discontinued colour. I also got to experiment a lot with rooflines on this bad boy. The one on the right is directly inspired by Venice's Palazzo Ducale, a reference to what the building was supposed to be! I would love to build this thing one day, but you know it's hardly impossible with all the discontinued colours and non-exisiting parts in certain colours. Building Period: Jan 2017 - Mar 2017 Pieces: 2994 on a 32x32 baseplate 6. Piazza San Marco Once I finished Sweets & Co., I went on a trip to Italy and one of the stops was Venice. The fact that I couldn't turn the Palazzo Ducale into a modular was still rattling my mind, so I set to build the most faithful recreation of the Campanile and the Palazzo in the modular form. Said and done. This is a huge over-the-top crazy piece of architecture. In fact the tower of the Campanile is 76'8 cm or 30' 2" tall! About the same as the Disney Castle for comparision. Although not my favourite modular it definetely is one of the dearest to my heart. All the details throughout the porch (something I'd wanted to revisit since I finished The Iron Horse, but with arches) are absolutely wonderful, in fact each capital is different from the other. As a reference to the original Italian Villa, the section inside the porch is Cool Yellow. Although hard to see in this picture, the whole façade is covered in a printed pattern (best seen in the section in-between the tower and the palace). Btw, two Sand Green gold ingots are there representing marble, so cool! The rooftop details are incredibly fun to build, surprisingly, and these were the best to build! Building Period: Apr 2017 - May 2017 Pieces: 3700 on a 16x32 and a 32x32 baseplate (same as Assembly Square) Why Am I Writing This? I've always wanted to have my modulars be seen as a unit, as something that one builds upon the other. Just another way of unifying. I finished another modular recently, but I've only been able to render a picture of it and my computer will just stop if I render another picture. That means that I probably won't be able to do many more modulars and make them look super cool. I will post the new modular when I can, don't worry about it though!! Hope to hear from you guys! Leave your comments, please note this is the work of over 1,5 years, so take this into consideration! Thanks!! Pau
  16. [ MOC ] The Grand Mall

    Hi everyone, just a few days before 2017 arrives and I managed to get this building done! As the economy of V City (my LEGO world) is going strong, the old Grand Emporium needs an upgrade too. Unlike many people who would buy more of the set and stack the stories up, I took a different approach from an architect's point of view. I got the inspiration from the book shelf of mine, and thought what if I added more books to the shelf? I would push the books aside and insert the new ones. And I got the idea for the new annex of the department store. The new building is just like new blocks inserted into the old one, and the expansion is not merely an increase of volume or floor area, but also a re-establishment of the icon. The new shop becomes a new landmark in the city (again). The design is clearly an insertion, but not invasion of the old. The new wing has a larger entrance, while the old revolving door is still kept. Let's start with the G/F. This floor is the supermarket, with one side having a double-volume space. You can also see that I kept some iconic features from the old emporium, namely the gift deco and escalators. All these link to the old memories... There is also a little information counter, if you are lost or if you have lost something. Going up to 1/F is the kitchenware section, and you can find the fashion section next to it. Wait, is that...Scarlet Witch? Further up is the 2/F kid section, with a fully stocked LEGO shelf! You can also find other toys here. The other side of the kid section is a book section. Mums can play with their kids too there. Snack corner is near the escalator, while you can find the restroom too. The roof originally was not used for anything (or a rest area for the window cleaners?), but after the renovation, you can enjoy a drink at the sky bar. Sometimes you can find the Avengers too. The model is also "slice-able", as you can open it up to reveal all the different sections inside. So the new Grand Mall is in business, and you can start getting some new things for the new year. Enjoy!
  17. 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.
  18. Hello everyone, I would like to present a project that I submitted on Legoideas.

  19. [ MOC ] Mail Box at V City

    Finally! This is the Mail Box! I took quite some time off from my last creation, and now I finally realized what was in my hand for quite some months. This yellow building is my latest modern architecture creation, and clearly, it is the place where you post your letters and get other mailing services, the post office! Many people would use up most of the inches for a corner building design, but I want to reclaim the space for the people. How about a negative building? I decided to remove the walls along the pavement, and create a nice, welcoming semi-outdoor space. Then the building will start to "climb" onto the remaining walls, as if they are inserted into the planes. I used grey for the horizontal box indicating that this is the public area. You can do your mailing at the counter or get help. You can also buy postcards and other mail products. The above is the black box, which is the office, the staff-only place. You can post your letters outside. Note the local and air mailboxes! The blue one is stamp vending machine. Buy, stick and post! On the other side of the yellow wall is the loading bay, and you can see things are just scattered around, with parcels pending delivery...the other side is the lift shaft, with a workable lift! The mail car parks here, and ready to be loaded and go! The first floor is the office where the postmen sort the letters. Looks like they need to have OT today... The second floor is where the manager sits. You can also find special delivery section here. They are brainstorming about how to deliver these silver bricks. Who is that artist? He is the designer for the post products, like the first-day-of-issue! The computer? For the drones! Yes, the drones! With these little robots, speed delivery will be really...speedy. No need to wait for any man or car to send your urgent letters! Hope you enjoy this! Now start posting!
  20. [MOC] Machu Picchu

    History: The legendary Peruvian citadel of Machu Picchu is the most familiar icon of the Inca civilization. Located in the Sacred Valley, which is 80 kilometers (50 miles) northwest of Cuzco, it was constructed around 1450 at the height of the Inca empire. Most archaeologists believe that Machu Picchu served as an estate for the Inca Emperor Pachacutec (1438-1472) and was abandoned just over 100 years later in 1572 because of the Spanish Conquest. Machu Picchu was rediscovered in 1911 by American historian and explorer Hiram Bingham. In 1983, UNESCO designated Machu Picchu as a World Heritage Site. Model Features: This microscale model of Machu Picchu showcases several key architecture features of the iconic building: Model Info: The model has 511 pieces and measures 20.8 x 19.2 x 11.5 centimeters, (8.2 x 7.6 x 4.5 inches). Instructions and part list for the model are available for download here. Motivation: As a fan of the LEGO Architecture series, I was surprised there were no official sets from South America. UNESCO described Machu Picchu as “an absolute masterpiece of architecture and a unique testimony to the Inca civilization”, making Machu Picchu the perfect landmark to build, learn, and explore. Without a doubt, the perfect candidate for a great LEGO set! I have been lucky enough to visit Machu Picchu on several occasions and my goal was to capture the beauty and splendor of this Wonder of the World. I hope you enjoyed my interpretation of this famous landmark. You can learn more about this creation on my LEGO Ideas site. Thank you for your comments and support!

A manhole will also lead you to the attic to blow the cobwebs away and, who knows, sport a new IDEAS creation! This whole house will be just 1590 pieces including furniture! The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr You may ask yourselves: ‘No bathroom? A bed? Kitchen?’ Nothing to worry about, a hardcore AFOL doesn’t need any of these and even so there will be some other modular building next to this one where you would seek help. As we said, the model will be of 1590 pieces. Just because you can’t split it like conventional modular buildings, it will have hinges to open the rear all in one piece. The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr All floor can be pulled out to ease playability and to make changes to the layout. This innovative modular building fits to any other existing LEGO products, and gives a touch of color to your city theme. The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr Just try now to visualize it the real word, or your city. Would it be awesome, don’t you think? How colourful any city would be, or more beautiful? I would personally buy it, if only LEGO would produce it. Who ever dream of a place where you could express your passion for bricks to the best? For now, it’s only possible to vote for this project, who knows where the future leads.. My first proposition of the model is red, a real classic color for LEGO. The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr On a unrelated side note, the story behind my nickname. ‘VedoSoloLEGO’ means ‘I see only LEGOs’ in Italian, my native language. Reason behind that is anything i look at I try to picture it in brick shape. I hope you enjoy it. Technical notes: The model has been created with Mecabriks and rendered via Blender. Special thanks to gabriele.zannotti for the wonderful pictures and support; without his help, it wouldnt even be possible to show you this project with thee lovely hires pics. If you would like to keep in touch with the project you can subscribe to my Ideas profile, including my other projects, or on Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, Mocpages, by looking for my username ‘VedoSoloLEGO’.

  22. Service Status: Still looking for somebody to perform this task. Hello, as the title states; I am for looking for somebody who can digitally design me a imperial base with a budget of $300 in total as well as create a list of bricks to purchase from bricklink so I can build it myself. I expect the model to be detailed, high quality, and look good. I never made any builds digitally so I'm not sure how I would be able to rebuild it from a online model but I'm sure you can help with that. Total build budget is $300. You get paid the remaining amount after cost of bricks. So for example, if the build costs $200 from the bricks, then you get $100 as payment. You may use any software as long as it can be easily reproduced physically. I think stud.io would be a good software to use as it links with bricklink to buy parts easily. Here are the specifications and features of the build. Also includes picture examples from similar MOCs and feedback on them. This document has been recently revised with more detail on 7/24, https://pastebin.com/9FDgvCRB Post here or PM me if you are interested in doing this service.
  23. I spend long periods away from home and my Lego bricks due to my work, so I end up doing a lot of design in computer with the likes of LDD, LDraw/bricksmith, and mecabricks. The problem is that none of these have any "physics" in them, I can't ever see how strong or stable the model is. So I end up spending hours agonising over the way the bricks are stacked, worrying over whether or not they will lock together solidly enough in real life. I also spend ages checking brick link and Lego bricks and pieces to make sure the pieces I use are available in the colours I choose, but that's another story. When I finally do treat myself and buy the bricks for one of my creations, they invariably fall apart. A couple of years back it was a 50 piece micro-scale particle detector that took 2 hours to get together and exploded at the slightest touch (and I do mean that literally, bits went flying all over the room!). My latest fiasco is a model of the Mercury-Redstone rocket, which I designed to go with the Lego Ideas Saturn V. It's just a stack of 2x2 round bricks with three axles inside due to it's height, yet despite my best efforts to put the axle transitions well inside bricks, the rocket easily falls apart into three neat chunks (one for each axle). So, what's the secret? When you design in computer do you care at all about how the model would behave in real life? And if you do care, do you have any tips on making sure that the model holds up well when physically built?
  24. The Tribunal

    DSC_0479 by Marc Irion, sur Flickr How can we imagine a city without justice? No more problems now: the thieves will be tried before being locked up in the prisons and police stations of the city! Here is the tribunal: a grand building in which a judge and a clerk take care of all criminal cases! DSC_0486 by Marc Irion, sur Flickr Admire the facades of this immense building immersed in a small park with a pond. The court staff will be able to take a break in this small green area, surrounded by small pine trees and many flowers. DSC_0477 by Marc Irion, sur Flickr The facade has several peculiarities, and the most important is probably the fact that it consists of "flat tiles 2x2 tan". You can also see a clogged window as well as climbing plants. The windows are equipped with small black roofs and edges containing flowers. DSC_0481 by Marc Irion, sur Flickr On the other side, a small access door allows to enter the courtroom otherwise than by the large double main door. Now let's go inside ... Inside the building DSC_0464 by Marc Irion, sur Flickr On the ground floor, there is the large auditorium. Here take place trials. The judge and a clerk may be placed before the accused, and behind them are witnesses and families (and friends and visitors, etc.). DSC_0465 by Marc Irion, sur Flickr The floor is entirely tiled. Several small details are visible on the ground floor: a globe as well as the judge's office, an armor on display, several paintings hanging on the walls, a clock, indoor plants, flags, and of course benches and Wooden barriers. DSC_0494 by Marc Irion, sur Flickr The columns are the most impressive thing in this court. They start on the ground floor and finish under the roof. Numerous details are visible on these, and one can also see a kind of fresco supported by these white pillars (with some yellow bricks on the floor). The floor consists of two small rooms with access to the trial room. There are gold and white barriers. These two rooms are obviously fully equipped: small furniture, jewelry (those stolen by thieves), beverages ... But the most visible and impressive object on the floor is the chandelier. This enormous light fixtures the large room on the ground floor. DSC_0474 by Marc Irion, sur Flickr Other information: The set includes 13 minifigures (the judge, the clerk, the photographer, a thief, two policemen, a gardener, two children and two couples attending the trial). The whole is composed of more than 2000 pièces.
