    [MOC] Medusa's Lair

    Finally completed my largest creation to date.This MOC depicts the legendary Medusa defending the temple ruins of Minerva. The build is 20” wide, 30” deep, stands 19.5” tall, and consists of 14619 parts. Medusa herself measure 5' 8" if fully expanded. The spartan warrior and statues posted earlier were created for this diorama. This was a fun creation involving lots of hinge bricks and round end plates to create those curves. The 1x1 tooth parts are turned around 15 degrees off center in order to create that layered look of snake scales. Would love to hear what you think of it. Check out my other projects on Instagram and Flickr.

    [MOC] Olympic Gardens

    Welcome to the Olympic Gardens! I'm by no means an engineer, but I started out wanting to create a beautiful domed European-style modular. There was going to be a tower, and a balcony, and an arcade along the front, to enhance my city layout. I got to the bottom of the dome and it did NOT translate well to the tower portion. The angles were terrible! So instead, I pivoted and turned it into a garden pavilion. And I like the result so much better! Some of my favorite parts are the planters holding the cypress trees. The main portion is a technic piece that makes a really cool textured planter. I'm a big fan of gardens and fountains, so there's tons of flowers and greenery in the finished build, and a main fountain up on the level with the pavilion. The cow horns near the bottom of the model (under the arches) were originally supposed to be teacups, but I didn't realize until too late that the pieces were too big for the gaps until later. So it's just a cool bit of statuary now. I plan to try and recreate this MOC in real bricks soon, as soon as I can order new bricks. It has more of a diorama style footprint than I normally do in my MOCs, so I can display the finished model on my shelf. There's tons of little details hidden in the scene as well, such as animals and lost coins, and bees everywhere. The flower bushes in the planters at the top of the stairs utilize a cool little piece with three studs, where I inserted the vines and green wolverine claws. The koi tiles are my absolute favorite, so I knew I had to include some in the build. I also like to make up primary stories to go with the MOCs I build, and for this one, the lady gets a text to meet her friend the artist at the park for a portrait painting. I also like the little grapes in the garden pavilion, they give it more of a pastoral atmosphere that I like to see in real-life gardens. The only thing that's really silly is that the balustrade on the side is a bit off center compared to the main balustrades, but that's something I can tinker with more when I build it in real bricks. Thanks for reading, and I appreciate any comments! :) Edit: I've created a time-lapse of the digital build, you can see it below: It took a lot longer to edit than to take all the photos, video software likes to keep crashing when you add 2,766 photos to it and try to shorten the frame length all at once!
  4. Hi guys At first, we want to introduce ourselves: We are three excited Lego builders: Budo, Paliason and Bedo. Each of us has built many of our own MOCs in the past. Before the recent, we decided to do something together. The main condition was to do something untraditional, original and with many details. This is the Lego project, which we will introduce to you now. It is the scene from the PC game Command & Conquer: GENERALS and its expansion ZERO HOUR. Three factions fight against each other: USA, CHINA and GLA. USA: CHINA: GLA: Our common goal is to make a large map of approx. 6.25 square meters and on it the combat scenes of vehicles and the infantry of all three opponents. The map will also include several civilian objects (farm, houses), industrial buildings (Oil derricks) but also large USA base. The model will be dedicated to exhibitions and commemorations of the great PC game C&C: GENERALS, at this year's 15th anniversary of this masterpiece.

    [MOC] Midi-Scale AT-AT Diorama

    Discovering the Battle of Hoth on screen is one of those childhood moments I'll always remember. So my first ever walker MOC had to be the AT-AT from Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back. And for such an iconic scene, making a diorama-style build was mandatory. At only 19cm (7,4") high, this Midi-Scale AT-AT consists of 924 pieces (1,317 in total with the diorama base & T-47), and is accurately Nanofig-scaled. It features a movable head and fully articulated legs, allowing many different poses. Working at such a compact scale, capturing fine surface detail and smooth, gapless angles for the body required a great deal of unique techniques. My main goal was to make the model feel deceivingly heavy and massive despite its small size, and of course achieve that prop / toy vibe I'm so fond of. The most challenging parts of the AT-AT were definitely the head and legs: the head for its subtle angles and challenging shape, and the legs for proportions, joints, feet, and very slight width differences as you go towards the bottom. Nanofigs (or trophy figs) scale perfectly to both the AT-AT and T-47, which also scale accurately to each other. The diorama base allows the AT-AT feet to be connected in various positions, and can accommodate two flying T-47s. This 358-piece base is optional and comes in a separate parts list, for builders who prefer displaying the model solely (picture 7 in the Flickr album). Parts list also include a string piece that can be easily added to reproduce the harpoon scene (picture 5 in the Flickr album). ► Instructions for the AT-AT are available at BrickVault. More pictures on my Flickr page.

    [MOC] Temple of the Golden SunDisk

    I wasn't sure where to put it exactly, but since it's related to Transformers I guess it can go here. [MOC] Temple of the Golden Sun Disk by Admiraltyphoon, on Flickr Millennia ago, a civilisation witnessed the wars between beasts over a mysterious golden disk, an artefact said to contain secrets of ancient past…and far future. They safeguarded the shining “disco del sol” in a temple deep in the jungles, hidden from the tyrannical jaws of evil. With it, they carved into its walls the legend of these brave and fearsome beast machines. [MOC] Temple of the Golden Sun Disk by Admiraltyphoon, on Flickr With the passing of time the civilisation fell, and with it the whereabouts of the temple. [MOC] Temple of the Golden Sun Disk by Admiraltyphoon, on Flickr Now, it has been found again, and various faces of good and evil are on the verge of clashing for its power again… [MOC] Temple of the Golden Sun Disk by Admiraltyphoon, on Flickr This is the first of my shelf dioramas made for my Transformers! My idea started when I was quickly running out of space for the few shelves in my Kallax unit I’d allocated for transformers when I got back into them some years ago - what started as a raised platform eventually got to the idea of a diorama scene that works for photoshoots as well. The recent Rise of The Beasts was the main inspiration because I liked the idea of mixing the Beast Wars story with the various Mesoamerican civilisations, most notably integrating the Golden Disk from the show with the Mayan/Inca disks, and carved/built wall murals of the maximals and predacons (can you guess which ones are on each column?).

    Garage Dinner

    While I should be building castle themed MOC’s for Summer Joust, here I am in the post-apocalyptic future 😆 My latest MOC, hope you like it. Day 839: John and I made some ground today. Still a long way to go. Found some corn, not the good kind though. We’ve made camp at an old auto garage, decent enough but the water’s no good. No company today, let’s see how long it lasts..
  10. Instead of just presenting the 2023 edition of Desert Wars, I prefer writing a kind of retrospective about a specific element of our layout: the cliff, located inside the Imperial outpost. For those who still want to see the full layout, the below video is available (10m long last month but we went up to 11.3m last weekend already). Desert Wars 2023 - April edition by Veynom, on Flickr So, let's start by the beginning: why a cliff? I had already been participating to multiple Lego exhibitions In Belgium since 2015 with Star Wars as theme. In 2017, I've had my first collaborative Star Wars layout using Tatooine as main theme. One detail that hit me back then was a characteristics shared by most of the Lego tables: they were quite "flat", sharing some similar heights, mainly driven by the displayed models and creations. Vehicles of the same scale are similar in heights, cities have 1 or 2 floors max (maybe 3 with modulars), and so on. Globally, these monotonous landscapes looked boring to me. (and this is only my personal opinion) Based on the above impressions, I wanted to provide a small cliff to the layout that would later become Desert Wars. Initially, I had a triple goal in mind when starting it. Providing some higher landscaping to please the visitors' eyes. Breaking the monotonous desert flat shape and omni-presence of tan as color. Supplying a background for pictures taken by visitors. (In fact, I still consider having a Lego background behind MOCs is probably better than the beer belly of their creators behind the table) As in 2018, I had considerably fewer bricks than today, I started the cliff by re-using parts of existing MOCs, like my old Scariff bunker attempt as seen below. A motorized radar (using a 12V motor) was quickly added on top of the cliff. The base idea was to re-use some metabricks. Today's, the radar still exist, with lights, and reaches 1m in height. Desert Wars 2018 - Cliff Evolution by Veynom, on Flickr In 2019, the main idea was to integrate the train deeper into the layout and to have it go through the cliff. A 32x32 tunnel section was added, the cloff was rotated by 90 degrees, and an Imperial hangar was built on the other side. A Batman projector that layed on my workbench was slapped onto the tunnel top and it stayed there for 3 years. Another improvement from 2019 was the upgrade to the standard MILS system. It clearly solidified our landscape (which is useful for assembling/disassembling/transport) while solving connectivity issues between participants. Desert Wars 2019 - Cliff Evolution by Veynom, on Flickr In 2020 and 2021, there was Covid. No Lego exhibition in sights but time for more MOCs. By the end of 2021, I had decided to include another of my old MOC into Desert Wars. This time, I wanted to include an Endor-like landing platform and connect it to the rest of the Imperial outpost and with the cliff. As the upgrade was a bit more sophisticated than usual, I made a very accurate and detail plan of what I had in mind. I'm sharing it below. . Desert Wars 2021 - Cliff Evolution by Veynom, on Flickr Construction could then start and ultimately, the bunker did not move. Desert Wars 2022 - Cliff Evolution by Veynom, on Flickr The first row of the cliff was also enlarged by reusing part of the FLAK section from the original cliff. Cliff module - section 1 by Veynom, on Flickr In the end, it was a good start... The cliff of Desert Wars 2022 by Veynom, on Flickr Desert Wars 2022 by Veynom, on Flickr However, like righteously commented Xavier (Vice-champion LegoMaster S1 - France), the cliff really looked rachitic when seen from the side. He advised me to make it larger by 16 studs.. Believe me, when a a Legomaster friend suggest you something, you just shut it up, nods, and go back to your bricks. Desert Wars 2023 - Cliff Evolution by Veynom, on Flickr This 16-stud enlargement upgrade was also a good occasion to improve on some details that were a bit neglected and to reinforce the underlying structure which was very fragile at first. Now, it is respecting the "Duplo Inside" concept. Among the other improvements, I can list in no particular order: exhaust vents, various detectors of all kinds, antennas .... The alignment with the hangar corridor was adjusted, with a door opened on an inside battle. Light in the Dark by Veynom, on Flickr A small turbolaser turret was also added, on the hangar side. Turbolaser Turret by Veynom, on Flickr The Batman projector was upgraded (and permanent light added). Light projector roof area by Veynom, on Flickr The front of the cliff was also modified to include a small MOC built by my son. I made it fit under one of the landing platform supporting pillars. It helps to modify the global shape of the background while offering more details to the eye. Bunker entrance by Veynom, on Flickr And so here is the current situation ... until the next upgrade. The cliff of Desert Wars 2023 by Veynom, on Flickr The cliff of Desert Wars 2023 by Veynom, on Flickr The cliff of Desert Wars 2023 by Veynom, on Flickr The cliff of Desert Wars 2023 by Veynom, on Flickr The cliff of Desert Wars 2023 by Veynom, on Flickr So what about these future upgrades? At the moment, lights are being added. The radar was the first one. The tunnel has just been completed for ComicCon Brussels. More ideas about the evolution of the platform and the last row with the train are also in the pipe. Ideas are not limited. Bricks can be sourced but transport is becoming an issue ... I need a bigger car (or a truck ;) ) This is it for today. I hope you enjoyed this type of post. It covers 5 years of evolution of a MOC, which is itself just a small part of our Desert Wars collaborative layout. For the record, our layout is blessed by the Force. Last year, Paul Blake (Greedo) visited us at Ch'tar Wars in France. Last week-end, we were lucky to be visited by Giancarlo Esposito (Moff Gideon) and Tait Fletcher (Paz Visla). Luckily, we had minifigs of each of them on our layout... Can't wait for the next ones.... Comments welcome! Thanks for reading!

  12. If I had been more daring, I would have posted this before voting ended! Here's the Shifting Subway, a diorama I built for the Bricklink Designer Program Series 1: And in the brick: Turning the crank moves the subway car back and forth. When it passes the station, the scenery at the station changes: The mechanism is fairly straightforward: trip pins on the subway car catch the scenery as it goes by, moving it. As a result the size of the platform is limited: Some notes from the design phase: I built this because I didn't enjoy working on the original idea I had. I threw this together in 3 or so weeks, scaling down an idea for displaying a future model. The hope here is to enjoy working on something I like, even if it's less popular. I might redo the concept later at a larger scale with a more sophisticated mechanism. Full Brickshelf gallery, whenever it gets moderated.
  13. Hi! I just finished the last MOC of this year. I made a total of 41 MOCs in 2022. It was a productive year. I wanted to make an Abandoned Theme diorama/layout/Module that matches the quality of the LLMTC folks. It was the first time that I use MILS, it consumes a lot of non-visible parts, but it allowed me to set up this 1x0,75 meters layout in less than 5 minutes. I tried to make it as realistic as possible, it's based on some buildings/rail way in my country Portugal. I have no clue how many parts I use on this :P

    [Moc] STOP WARS!

    As usual in recent years I present a new Christmas moc. The war that broke out between Russia and the Ukraine has touched the collective world soul a lot and so this year I wanted to give a message of solidarity by saying Stop the Wars! To do this I decided to create a nice diorama taking up the Star Wars theme of which I am a big fan. For once the Empire and the Rebellion in a famous scene of Hoth (from the movie "The Empire Strikes Back") decide to make peace and sit down at a decorated table to celebrate Christmas! All weapons have been laid down, speeders and tools of war like the AT-ST have stopped, and everyone celebrates together. Some peculiarities of the diorama are the spit-roast chicken that can rotate thanks to a side knob, R2-D2 and C1P8 in a Christmas version, a custom printed sign of "STOP WARS". A side housing also allows you to turn on small LED lights to illuminate some parts of the diorama. I hope it is appreciated and Merry Christmas to all!

    MOC: Music Dioramas

    Hello Eurobricks! I have for you 6 "music dioramas" that I like to make whenever I get really into a band or musician. Basically they're constructed on an 8x16 plate, they're 7 bricks high with tile on top, and they're either based on an album cover or just on the musician. Also, I'm not afraid to paint minifigures and parts occasionally for these. Anyway, enjoy! 1. The Beatles: Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band 2. Metallica: Master of Puppets 3. Green Day: 21st Century Breakdown 4. Nirvana: In Utero 5. Jimi Hendrix (Loosely based on his early "Purple Haze" era) 6. The White Stripes And here they are all stacked together for a display piece. Thank you for viewing! Questions and comments welcome.

    Winter Village diorama 2017

    Hi all, this year I expanded my collection of winter village sets buying the winter train station and the winter train, so I realized that I had to make a new diorama to integrate them in my diorama. This is the old one: Now, after a lot of work, I'm happy to present you the new one! I used a lot of pieces building three independent modules to make the structure more resistant and easily transportable. Hope you like it!

    Suggestions for city diorama

    Hello Eurobricks community. I've been reading Eurobricks for quite few years and have been collecting LEGO for a while. (mostly starwars) Anyhow, I have a question to the community: I need some advices on how to plan and start making a... lets start from small urban town. So the current resources I have now are: I have a lot of townsfolk, 2 houses, and some handful of bulk parts for sure. Few city vehicles if I remember it properly too. I have some green plates and plenty of old grey giant plates.

    [MOC] Havana 1717

    I present to you Havana 1717: I took inspiration from the Havana of the PC Game Assasins Creed Black Flag, set in the Golden Age of Piracy. For the blue building in the centre I disassembled my 10252 VW Beetle and used many of the parts to achieve the rounding of the building. I plan on using these buildings as part of a much larger port town layout for future episodes of my stop-motion animation series Being Pirates, So look out for more. Let me know what you think! Check out a current episode of Being Pirates if you like:
  24. "Into the Wild" Snowy Magic Bus A few months ago I built the most iconic scene from the movie “Into the Wild”, directed by Sean Penn in 2007, with the Magic Bus standing in plain sight in the wild Alaskan woods. It was early spring. With the cold season coming it was taken for granted I'd be tempted to build the snow capped Bus as it appears in some scenes of the movie. The sand green/white Bus stands on a big snowy base now built with many weird parts to create the snow-covered foliage effect. White pines are placed behind it. Chris McCandless's story is well known and sadly it didn't end well. And the Bus itself, seen as a danger, has been recently airlifted from the Alaskan wild to a secure site after two hikers have died and at least 15 have had to be rescued while trying to reach the bus in the remote Alaskan wilderness. Abandoned on the Stampede Trail near Denali National Park, the bus had become a pilgrimage site. It was revered by travelers around the world who had read the book or seen the movie. But it had also become a hazard, luring hikers into forbidding territory. Here my first version of the Into the Wild diorama with more info about the story of Chris. Few photos: Hope you like it :) Thanks for stopping by!
  25. Hello Lego fans, I am happy to join this forum. I am playing with the colored plastic bricks since over 40 years now and my favourite theme is Star Wars. After buying sets from Lego I started to build up MOCs since 2 years and my living room fills up with it. This year I started to build up complete scenes in dioramas and mix Lego also with natural materials. Now it´s time to start up next stage and I have downloaded the Lego Digital Designer to my notebook and will try my first steps on it. Maybe some of you can help me to work with it if I have any questions. CU
