  1. The Church of Our Lady is a famous medieval church in Kalundborg, Denmark. The church is built around year 1220. With its five distinctive towers, it stands on a hill above the harbour, making it the town's most imposing landmark. The architecture of the church is inspired by the New Jerusalem in the Book of Revelation. In the Middle Ages, the New Jerusalem was imagined as a fortified city with five towers. The central tower of the church collapsed in 1827 but it was rebuilt in 1871. The LEGO version is built in scale 1:100.

    Østerlars Rundkirke is a church on the island of Bornholm in Denmark. The church was built around year 1160 and it is the largest of the four round churches on Bornholm: One theory says that the Østerlars Church was built by the Knights Templar: At the cemetery I placed some fun texts on the gravestones: The real church: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Østerlars_Church Link to my flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/66344850@N06/albums/72157666475969449
  3. MOC - Tree Lorry Danish Edition

    Hey guys! Today I'm going to show you my latest LEGO(R) creation/MOC. It's a "pre-christmas". I'm prepairing my LEGO(R) city for the Christmas time and this is a good add to it I think. It is a version of the danish tree lorries that carry the trees to put in the familie's houses. I hope you like it!
  4. Roskilde Cathedral (Roskilde Domkirke) is one of the most famous churches in Denmark. The cathedral is the burial site for the Danish monarchs and is known as the church in the world where most kings and queens are buried. Since 1995, it has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These 7 LEGO models show the history of Roskilde Cathedral during the last 1000 years. The 7 LEGO models are built in scale 1:200. Roskilde Cathedral, year 980 According to the legends, Roskilde was founded by the legendary King Roar back in the 6th century. The name Roskilde means Roar’s spring. In the beginning the village had no church because Denmark was still pagan. Around year 965, the Danish king Harald Bluetooth (Harald Blåtand) converted to Christianity. When Roskilde became the new capital of Denmark, there should of course be built a church in the town. Around year 980, Harald Bluetooth built a small wooden church on the site where Roskilde Cathedral is today. The wooden church was named Trinity Church, dedicated to the Holy Trinity. When Harald Bluetooth died around year 986, he was buried in the church. So did his son Sweyn Forkbeard (Svend Tveskæg), who died in year 1014. Around year 1020, Roskilde became the seat of the Bishop of Roskilde and the church became a cathedral. No one knows exactly how the wooden church has been like. Therefore, I had to use a some imagination when I built the LEGO model. Roskilde Cathedral, year 1080 After the church had been recognized as a cathedral, it was decided to replace the small wooden church with a larger travertine church. It was completed by Bishop Svend Nordmand around 1080. The Danish king Svend Estridsen was buried in the church when he died in 1074. The travertine church was built in Romanesque style, which was the dominant style in Europe in the early Middle Ages. Roskilde Cathedral, year 1230 In 1160, the art of firing bricks was brought to Denmark by monks from the south, and the new material was employed. Around year 1170 Bishop Absalon decided to build a new, Romanesque brick cathedral around the existing one, allowing services to continue during construction. In 1191, Absalon's successor, Peder Sunesen, embracing the new French Gothic style, made significant changes to the plans. The choir was completed and inaugurated in 1225, allowing services to begin there. Some of the stones from the old travertine church were used to build a Gothic arch that connected the cathedral with the bishop's palace. The arch was built around year 1200. It is still standing today and connects the cathedral with the current Roskilde Palace from the 18th century. Roskilde Cathedral, year 1280 After year 1230 the front of the old travertine church was now demolished to make way for the construction of the rest of the brick cathedral. Around year 1280, the brick cathedral finally was completed, but only with one tower. The cathedral was built so it looked like a cross seen from above. However, the cathedral already had got its first extension: Kapitelhuset. The construction of the last tower was slowed by a fire in 1282. Roskilde Cathedral, year 1465 Around year 1400, both towers were completed. When Queen Margrethe I died in 1412, she was buried in her family's chapel at Sorø Klosterkirke. But the following year Bishop Peder Jensen Lodehat, who had been the queen's chancellor and religious advisor, brought her body to Roskilde Cathedral. Here her grave was given a central position in the church. Above her grave the Margrete-Spire was built, named after her. When King Christopher III died in 1448, he was also buried in Roskilde Cathedral. Around year 1460 King Christian I built the Chapel of the Magi, where he was buried in 1481. Since the 15th century, the cathedral has been the main burial site for Danish monarchs. The Chapel of the Magi, Oluf Mortensen's porch and all the other additions from the 15th century were all built in Gothic style like the rest cathedral. Roskilde Cathedral, year 1635 During the Middle Ages, the cathedral was a Catholic church. But after the Danish Reformation in 1536 all Danish churches including Roskilde Cathedral became Evangelical Lutheran. However, this did not change the exterior appearance of the cathedral. But the exterior appearance of the cathedral was changed a lot during the reign of King Christian IV (1588-1648). The Gothic style had become out of fashion and was replaced by the Renaissance style. Around year 1635 the church got its two iconic spires, which today is one of Roskilde's landmarks. And around the same time, the old entrance portal was replaced by a new Renaissance entrance portal. Christian IV also built a large burial chapel in Renaissance style, where he was buried in the 1648. Roskilde Cathedral, year 2016 Roskilde Cathedral function as a burial site for the Danish kings have meant that there have been built many additions in various styles. In the period 1774-1825 Frederik V’s burial chapel was built in neo-classical style. In 1871, the entrance portal was replaced with one that matched the rest of the cathedral, while the old Renaissance portal was donated to the Church of Holmen in Copenhagen. In the period 1919-1924 Christian IX’s burial chapel was built in neo-Byzantine style.King Frederik IX loved life at sea. Therefore he wanted to be buried outside the cathedral with view over Roskilde Fjord. Therefore, a burial chapel for him was built outside the church in 1985. This is the newest addition of the cathedral. The current Roskilde Cathedral appears as mixture of many different styles built in the period 1170-1985 in Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Neoclassicism and even Byzantine style. Since 1995, Roskilde Cathedral has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. More photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/66344850@N06/albums/72157673701943970 .
  5. Rasmus Klump is a Danish comic created in 1951 and still very popular. The series tells the adventures of the bear cub Rasmus Klump and his friends: Pingo (a penguin), Pelle (a pelican), Skæg (a seal) and others. Always dressed in red dungarees with white polka dots, Rasmus Klump travels the world on board his boat Mary, which he builds with his friends in the first episode. At home Rasmus Klump's mother always bakes pancakes to Rasmus Klump and his friends. Rasmus Klump is known as Petzi in Germany and many other countries. In Sweden he is known as Rasmus Nalle. This LEGO layout is bulit by 5 Danish LEGO fans in 2015: Anne Mette Vestergård, Helgi Toftegaard, Henrik Kunz, Jakob Hestbæk and Lasse Vestergård. Video: Anne Mette Vestergård has built: Rasmus Klump's house and the haunted castle. Jakob Hestbæk has built: Egypt, the boat Mary, the train in the rail wheel and the brown ship house. Henrik Kunz has built: The North Pole Helgi Toftegaard has built: The pink house with the mill and the hot air balloon Lasse Vestergård has built: China, the lighthouse, the whale and some of the small islands. Movement and Mindstorms programming is made by Helgi Toftegaard and his students from Specialisterne. The Music in the video is the song from the Danish Rasmus Klump cartoon from the 1990s. The layout is not the first time I have built something from the Rasmus Klump comics. In January 2015, I built these large figures of Rasmus Klump and his friends:
  6. Hello from Denmark

    Hey there. I would just like to introduce myself. I am a guy from Fredericia in Denmark. The birthplace of LEGO. I am a eager LEGO builder and my favorite sets are Star Wars, Mindstorms, Technic and anything with cars and motorsports. I would like to start a small group of people who are keen on creating new sets on the ideas.lego.com site. Anyone up for this? Please write me :D Together we can do more. And in the words of one of my friends father Jørgen Knudstorp. - Everything is awesome!!!
  7. St. Bendt's Church is a church in Ringsted, Denmark. Red brick is one of the most common building materials in Denmark. The technique to produce red bricks arrived in Denmark around year 1160. St. Bendt's Church in Ringsted was one of the first red brick churches in Scandinavia. In year 1170 the church was dedicated with great ceremony to Saint Bendt (Benedict of Nursia). The church is built in Romanesque style and houses the tombs of Saint Knud Lavard and many of Denmark´s earlier kings, queens and noblemen. This layout shows the dedication of the church in year 1170. Saint Knud Lavard was canonized during the dedication of the church in year 1170. Saint Knud Lavard (1096-1131) was a very successful and popular Duke of Schleswig. He was the son of King Erik I of Denmark and a an obvious successor to the Danish throne. But he never became king because he was killed by his cousin Magnus. His death provoked a long and bloody civil war. A week after his death his son Valdemar the Great (1131-1182) was born. In year 1157 Valdemar won the civil war and became king of Denmark. The fate of Knud Lavard and his son’s victory formed the background for his canonisation in 1170. During the dedication of the church Valdemar the Great's oldest son Knud VI (1163-1202) was proclaimed co-regent together with his father. Therefore the 7-year-old boy is sitting on a throne with a crown on his head next to his father. The real church can be seen here: More photos of my MOC can be seen here: https://www.flickr.c...157659941927972 .
  8. Rosenborg Castle is a renaissance castle located in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was built by the famous Danish King Christian IV. The construction started in 1606, and after several expansions the castle was completed in 1633. My LEGO model of the castle shows it in the 1630s when the castle was new and Christian IV lived there. Christian IV is one of the most famous Danish kings. He was born in 1577 as the oldest son of King Frederik II. At the death of his father in 1588 the 11-years-old Christian became king of Denmark and Norway. He is frequently remembered as one of the most popular, ambitious, and proactive Danish kings, having initiated many reforms and projects. Many of the most famous buildings in Copenhagen was built during his reign. But he also engaged Denmark in numerous wars which undermined the Danish economy. He also had more than 20 children with 5 different women. Christian IV died in 1648. His reign of almost 60 years is the longest of all Danish monarchs.

  9. [MOC] Tivoli Main entrance

    Together with 6 other members of my lug we made a LEGO edition of Tivoli in Copenhagen. My Friend Lasse Vestergård has already presented the complete layout. Here a few days before I start to take it apart I think it deserves its own presentation. An overview from the streetside. The TIVOLI guards. These guards are musicians dressed as Royal danish guards.. From the inside of the park The left side building with the ticket and season-pas office. More photos and details at Mocpages Google Streetview for comparison Let me know if you think I've missed a detail.

  11. Presenting another Danish shunter...DSB Litra MH 322 History: The Danish State Railways (DSB) diesel shunter Litra MH were built in great numbers by Frichs in Denmark from the year 1960 to 1965. In all 120 shunters were built to replace the steam shunters still being used. The shunters were repainted in the 80's to black and red from the original dark green. The last shunter was decommissioned in 2001. ©Hans Stückler My model: Scale: 1:45 Lenght: 26 bricks Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 455 Motortype: PF Model built: 2012-14 The stickers are homemade with self-adhesive labels printed by a copy shop and then cut by myself to fit. The upper part is primarily constructed with plates and tiles, in general only a few standard bricks are used in the construction. The model is run by PF and requires one 9v battery connected by custom adapter to the Power Functions M-Motor. Pull and speed are acceptable. The shunter pulling a white Litra Gs wagon.
  12. This is my secret project WIP for TC6. This is not a joke, construction is almost complete. I'm just waiting for some additional parts to arrive because I don't want to show incomplete work. You may ask "Why creating a topic then?" - So you could expect one more TC6 entry of course ! While I'm getting camera and parts I will update this thread with some info. Here's something to start: Technical specifications: 2 RC units 2 M-motors 1 L-motor 1 Servo-motor Manual gearbox. 7-9 functions. Some awesome lights. Maybe pew pew pew capabilities, dunno yet. To keep you interested I made a comics about the creation of this MOC. Enjoy.
  13. Presenting another Danish shunter... The Danish State Railways (DSB) first radio controllable shunter Litra MK was built in Germany by Siemens from the year 1996 to 1998. 25 were built in all. All but one shunter were transferred to DSB subsidiary Railion in 2001 and DB Schenker Rail in 2007. My LEGO model is my second attempt at the Litra MK and is the DSB Gods version. Scale: 1:45 Lenght: 26 bricks Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 410 Motortype: PF Model built: 2013-14 The stickers are homemade again. Lots of somewhat fragile greebles. No room for the driver in the cap Only PF can be used to run the model and requires one 9v battery connected by custom adapter to the Power Functions M-Motor. Pull and speed are acceptable.
  14. MOC: Roskilde

    Roskilde is the 10th largest city in Denmark with a population around 48,000 and is located 30 km west of Copenhagen. Roskilde is a historic city and during the late Viking Age and Middle Ages it was the capital of Denmark. This layout shows the city center of Roskilde. I got the idea for the layout back in November 2012 when I was exhibiting some of my MOCs at LEGO Fan Welt in Cologne. At the exhibition I bought “The Big Unofficial LEGO Builder's Book” written by Joachim Klang and Oliver Albrecht. The book inspired me to build something in scale 1:100. At the same exhibition a large model of the Cologne Cathedral was exhibited. It inspired me to build the cathedral in my hometown Roskilde. When I came home to Denmark I started building Roskilde Cathedral and its surroundings in scale 1:100. It took 16 month to build the layout. In May 2014 the layout was exhibited for the first time at a LEGO exhibition (Klodsfest) in Roskilde. The most famous building Roskilde is the Cathedral (Roskilde Domkirke). The cathedral is the burial site for the Danish monarchs and is known as the church in the world where most kings and queens are buried. Since 1995, it has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Roskilde Cathedral contains architecture from the last 800 years. There has been a church on the site since year 980. The current cathedral was built between 1170 and 1280 in the Gothic style. But since then many extensions have been added: The two large west tower was completed around year 1400 The Margrethe Spire is built around 1420 Christian I’s Chapel is built around 1460 Christian IV’s Chapel is built in the Renaissance style around 1620 The two characteristic spires on the towers is built around 1635 Frederik V’s Chapel is built in neo-Classical style around t 1775 Christian IX’s Chapel is built in neo-Byzantine style in 1925 Frederik IX’s Burial Site is built in 1985. More information: http://en.wikipedia....kilde_Cathedral The Former Town Hall of Roskilde was built in neo-Gothic style in 1884. But the tower is much older. It was built in Gothic style around year 1500. Originally it was part of St Lawrence Church. But after the Danish reformation in 1536 the church was demolished. The tower were allowed to stand and in 1884 the tower became part of the new neo-Gothic Town Hall: The real town hall can be seen here: http://en.wikipedia...._mpazdziora.jpg The Yellow Mansion (Roskilde Palæ) was built in the 1730s in Baroque style: The real mansion can be seen here: http://en.wikipedia....ce,_Denmark.jpg The “Absalon Arch” was built in the Gothic style around year 1200 and connected the cathedral to the Bishop's Palace, which at the time was where the yellow mansion is today: The real arch can be seen here: http://en.wikipedia...._(Roskilde).jpg Roskilde Gymnasium is a Danish high school lactated next to the cathedral. There has been a school on the site since year 1020. But no buildings are left from that time. The high school's oldest building is the “Rector Residence”. It has a north wing which dates from around 1770. The rest of the residence is built around 1820: The main building of the school is from 1842: During the last 100 years many additional buildings have been added to the school. The newest building is the blue “Science Building” from 2012: This is how Roskilde looks like in real life: More photos of my layout can be seen here: https://www.flickr.c...57646580719978/
  15. We are a group of AFOLs in Denmark who are planning a new tourist attraction in Denmark called World of Bricks With large landscapes and locations from all over the world. It will be a must for all LEGO fans. You will also be able to se big displays from LEGO themes like Star Wars, LEGO Friends, Harry Potter and many more. The AFOL community is very important to us and therefor there will be many ways for you to have your work display or even work with us. We are in the early stage of the process, but we would like to know what you thing of the project and if you would travel to Denmark to se it. World of Bricks will be located near Copenhagen. So please support us on https://www.facebook.com/worldbricks
  16. VW Transporter Ambulance

    This one has been sitting in my basement too for a couple of years, and though it is not yet completed, i thought it was time to post it. It is a VW Transporter, standard ambulance of the Copenhagen Fire Department. It needs an interior and some stickers, then it will be done.
  17. Mercedes Sprinter ambulance

    I have had this moc as a project since 2010, annd it is still not done... It started out having the old 6x2x2 windshield before the 6x3x2 came out, thank god for that one Now i just need to change the tail lights so the top one is a cheese slope and add some stickers, then i think i will be done. But i thought it was about time to post it
  18. The Church of Our Lady (Danish: Vor Frue Kirke) is the cathedral of Copenhagen and the National Cathedral of Denmark. There has been a church on this site since the 12th century, but the church building has burned and been rebuilt several times. The present day version of the church was designed by the Danish architect Christian Frederik Hansen in the neoclassical style and was built between 1817 and 1829. A while ago Copenhagen Cathedral asked me if I could build a model of this church. This resulted in this MOC. The church is built in scale 1:100 and it took around 37 hours to build it. The real church can be seen here: More photos of my MOC can be seen here: https://www.flickr.c...57642444211364/
  19. Located in Copenhagen, Denmark, the Gemini Residence used to be two seed silos. Here's my interpretation as a LDD MICRO MOC. Although this MOC is fairly simple, you may click on the image to download the LXF file.
  20. Tivoli in Copenhagen

    Since Tivoli was founded in 1843 it has been one of the most popular tourist attractions in Copenhagen. In October 2012 we were 7 members of the Danish LUG Byggepladen who decided to build Tivoli. The construction started in January 2013 and continued for the next 14 months until February 2014. Last week our layout was shown at LEGO World in Copenhagen. Jakob Hestbæk has built The Main Entrance: Pjerrot at the Tivoli Main Entrance: The Danish fairy tale writer Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) liked to visit Tivoli: Anne Mette Vestergård and I have built The Tivoli Castle (Tivoli Slottet): Anne Mette has also built "The Kissing Benches" (Kyssebænkene). Jørgen Pedersen has ensured that there is light in the lamp posts: Jakob Hestbæk has built the pirate ship and Tine Gudiksen has built The Japanese Tower (Det Japanske Tårn): Tine Gudiksen and Trine Jensen have built Nimb: The path between Nimb and The Roller Coaster. In the background Tine's model of The Japanese Tower: Anne Mette has built this restaurant, located below the roller coaster: Anne Mette and I have built the stands under the roller coaster. "Is" is the Danish word for ice-cream. Anne Mette and I have built The Ferris Wheel (Ballongyngen) and The Roller Coaster (Rutschebanen) with The Mine (Minen). Henrik Christian Grove has built the carousel and The Vintage Cars (Veteranbilerne): When we built the ferris wheel (Ballongyngen), we had to buy technic liftarms at bricklink . I had never thought that would happen. Anne Mette has also built the fountains: Anne Mette and I have built The Camel Trail: Trine Jensen has built the Tivoli Lake with Færgekroen and the boats which can move. Jakob Hestbæk has built the Monsoon, which can be seen in the background. The 7 builders are: Jakob Hestbæk, Henrik Christian Grove, Jørgen Pedersen, Lasse Vestergård, Anne Mette Vestergård, Trine Jensen and Tine Gudiksen. More photos of our layout can be seen here: http://www.flickr.co...th/12615335445/
  21. MOC City of Copenhagen

    [Edit: September 2nd 2016] I have finally gotten around to extending this model in the direction of Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn which are two very popular destinations of Copenhagen for both tourists and the citizens. I'll put a picture both here and also with a comment later in this thread. Lots of close-ups of the extended part in the Flickr gallery [Edit: 2014] I have now added a whole bunch of pictures both here and on flickr. If you want the historical, explanatory discription for the different buildings you will have to visit the flickr photo set. And feel free to leave a commend here or there :) Original message 2014: I'm a member of Danish LUG Byggepladen and I'm a bit of a rare poster in this wonderful forum, but here's my short story: Over the last few years one thing let to another and much later I'm finally done with my model City of Copenhagen (Denmark). It is a microscale, sporting a really twisted micro snot mosaic road system. For lack of better I have chosen to call it OAMR System — Oblique Angle Micro Road System. You won't get a more LEGO System compatible micro snot road system for this scale. I would personally love to see some different micro's (just as a contrast to those otherwise beautiful Micro Skyscraper Square Grids), perhaps depicting one of the many awesome city plans of the world or just something you make up yourself :) And once again, here is the whole photo set on flickr. The photo from LEGO World Copenhagen 2014:
  22. LEGO Fan Weekend 2013 Date: September 27th to 29th One of the greatest LEGO events in Denmark is again on schedule! Who will be there ? Hope to see you... further information at fanweekend.dk
  23. Danish Friends House

    When I saw the many new Bright Light Orange bricks from the LEGO Friends theme my first thought was that the colour looked like the colour of a typical Danish “yellow” house. Therefore I decided to collect Bright Light Orange bricks in order to build a house in that colour. Like many other young girls Olivia dreams about a tall broad-shouldered guy. None of the Friends boys could live up to that. Therefore she found him in another LEGO theme.
  24. Together with my mother Anne Mette I have build the Adventist Church in Roskilde, Denmark. The church was built in 1963. The LEGO version was built to celebrate the 50 years anniversary in 2013. Photos of the real church: More photos of our MOC can be seen here: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=532249
  25. Hi everyone. A new building is available for download. This time it's the Ferring International Center/Pharmaceuticals in Ørestad City, Denmark. Just like the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel I made a while back, the logos on the building is made in Photoshop, since custom decals is unavailable as you all know. Picture of the real building In case of LDD is crashing upon loading the model, follow these three steps. 1. Go to the settings in LDD. 2. Uncheck "High-quality rendering of bricks placed in the scene". (If it still crashes, try uncheck "High-quality of bricks in the Brick Palette in the settings.) 3. Restart LDD and then load the building. Download Contains 13178 bricks, just a heads up for you guys with a slower computer.
