  1. Hi everyone! I designed an extension for my model in the BrickLink AFOL Designer Program. The Science Tower City Site extension gives the tower a nice square plot to sit on and the possibility to integrate it into a LEGO city. It has a small garden and the pavement is plastered with a reference to the Pythagorean theorem. The tower model can be put on it and taken away easily without modifications. Instructions and parts list for the extension can be downloaded here for free: https://www.thilo-schoen.de/sciencetower.html The Science Tower itself is available as a complete set until July 1 here: https://www.bricklink.com/v3/crowdfunding/designer-sets-for-adult-fans-of-lego/59446/Science-Tower (It includes a nice box with included background image, all necessary parts plus an exclusive part and printed instructions.) Hope you like the extension and maybe it helps you to find a place for the tower.

    Casualties of War

    Casualties of War Chapter I: The Tranquil Meadow Chapter II: Old Bagshaw's Residence Chapter III: The Poacher Chapter IV: Making Camp Chapter V: Solitary Council Chapter VI: Escaping Home Chapter VII: Waylaid Chapter VIII: Archery Practice Chapter IX: Honour the Fallen Chapter X: Casualties of War Bonus Landscape: Avalonian Countryside - 'I don't see why we can't just make camp like usual', Harlon argued. 'Never had anything good coming from meddling with the locals.' - 'That's because you treat common people like dirt', objected Nyle. 'People don't generally want to help anyone that thinks of them as a nuisance. If you could just play nice for once we might even have a shot at some nice homecooked food and some indoor sleeping.' Sir Darby didn't quite share Nyle's optimism. Like Harlon, he preferred to not involve more people than necessary when on the road. But he was also conscious that Nyle might be needing a break from everything, if only for one night. - 'Well, it won't hurt to ask', he stated. 'Why don't I go over and check if anyone's home and if they happen to have some spare food and perhaps someplace to sleep?' - 'I'm coming along', Nyle stated. - 'Fine. I'll just stay here so my unpleasant personality doesn't ruin your prospects', Harlon said wryly. - 'You do as you please', Nyle replied and urged his horse towards the small cottage. Sir Darby sighed. Somehow, getting these two to get along seemed harder than keeping up the morale in a camp full of soldiers. - 'We will be right back', he told Harlon and moved to catch up to Nyle. As Sir Darby and Nyle approached the cottage an old man came out to meet them. Sir Darby could also spot a younger woman in the doorway, peeking out at them with a worried expression. Sir Darby dismounted. - 'Evening sir. We are travellers on our way to Newquay. We were wondering if you might...', Sir Darby started. - 'No, we do not', the old man interrupted. Sir Darby took a moment to recover from being cut off. - 'All we're asking is...', he continued. - 'But you're not asking, are you?', the old man interrupted again. 'You are obviously men of importance, and men of importance never ask men of no consequence like me for anything. You demand and you take.' Sir Darby assessed the situation. There was obviously nothing for them to gain here and they should head back and look for a proper campsite. Still, he felt himself sympathise with this old man. Anger and hurt were no strangers to Sir Darby, though it was long since he had let them touch him - a man in his position could not afford to. Yet these feelings were clearly recognisable on this man's face. This house had experienced loss, most likely on the battlefield in service of Avalonia. Probably the husband of the young woman peering out at them, which would make it the man's son or son-in-law. - 'I'm sorry for your loss', Sir Darby offered. The man's face betrayed a short moment of surprise, before pain and determination again took over. - 'What does that do for us?', he asked sternly. 'Is that going to bring our family back to us? Men like you came and took my son away without warning! One moment we were plowing the fields and the next I watched him march off in a long row of dirty young men.' The man continued. - 'Would that all you did was take something away from us though, but your pack of filthy recruits brought something to us as well. The plague.' The man began to tear up. - 'My wife caught it, but she didn't tell me, and I was too busy making up for my son's absence at the farm to notice. Then one day she showed me her blackened foot and told me she had to leave. I told her she couldn't leave, that we should go see Mr. Oates, that he would help us. She agreed, but the next morning when I woke up, she was gone. Gone, never to come back. In a matter of weeks our family had destroyed, and for what? For you to have one more person to throw away in your little game of war?' The old man sighed, the anger giving way to dejectedness. - 'In the beginning we held out hope that Thom might return, but months turned to years, and we knew he was not coming back. Not that anyone had the decency to tell us, but we knew. When I saw you coming I thought that maybe... maybe we would get word of what had happened. To have confirmed what we already know. But you are just another person here to get something from us. I'm sorry, but all that we could possibly give has already been taken away from us. You took it from us. We have nothing left.' Sir Darby looked at the man for a moment. There was nothing he could do for him. His son might even have been under his own command. Perhaps he had sent him to his death. He had had a number of Thom's serving under him, but there was no way to tell if it had been this man's son. He could not offer him the closure that he needed. One thing he knew though, that he was responsible for this man's suffering. Perhaps not directly in this case, but how many more like him were suffering for the choices he had made as a commander? In this moment, that burden weighed heavier on his shoulders than it had ever done. Sir Darby mounted his horse and started back to Harlon. Nyle followed suit. - 'Life has dealt you a poor hand', he thought to himself. He was not sure whether he was referring to the man or himself. *** Been quite a while since I last built for Avalonia, but the Swedish Lego Maffia gave me an offer I couldn't refuse, so here I am ;) Seriously though, I have had this cottage (minus the roof) standing around for over a year, trying to figure a good way to make thatch for the next episode in this story line. It finally clicked about a month ago, and so here is the finished product. Feeling a bit rusty with the story telling, but whether it's good or not, writing is fun :) Ironically for such an old build, I actually ended up having a deadline for its completion as the LEGO Store in Copenhagen wanted to display it, so a few details that could have used some extra work had to be left as is. Hope you enjoy the build either way :) Happy to be back in any case!

    X-Wing Crash On Endor!

    Photography fun in the garden... https://flic.kr/s/aHsmrfBUyN
  5. Willem Guilder took his evening stroll through the garden. Here he could almost imagine he was back in Weelond, but for some reason he was still in King's Harbour. However, his ship was on its way, and his extended stay on the Corrish island was nearing an end. Just then one of his aides caught up to him. "Here you are, Gov'ner. I was lookin' all over for you. I was told you needed me, but they failed to mention where you was." "Well, you've found me, so all is well." Guilder let the man catch his breath for a moment, then continued. "Please see to it that these orders are delivered to the Secretary of the Navy. We need to commission the sistership of the Long Beard into service." "Aye, sir," replied the aide. "I heard about her. 'Twas a shame the Long Beard went down, but I hear she gave Zublius Von Wreck what fer, taking the pirate's ship from her. Better than a fair exchange if you ask me." "Indeed, the men made good with the capture of Hades' Hangman. The crew of the Long Beard have had quite the summer. But there is no rest for them, as the Long Beard II awaits." --- Just a quick build for the sistershipping requirements, and it gave me a chance to play around with a brick-paved walkway. The sand green tiles may seem like an odd choice, but I think they work well. All C&C welcome.

    MOC - Garden Toy Train - 12-wide

    Hi all, some days ago I was watching some videos of LGB G-Gauge trains running in the garden. They're big and very well done...and really out of budget for me. So I wondered if I could replicate such a big locomotive using Lego. And trying to be cheap!!! A big train like that needs: an XXL PF Motor; a simple PF battery box; a PF receiver; a PF remote control. All in all we're at about 50 Euros from Lego Shop. 4 large flanged wheels from Lego or BBB (3 Euros each - 12 Euros) - our total increases to, let's say, 65 euros. Then, it's time to think about a body - it must be as simple as possible, sturdy, and without too many special parts. Since I was not particularly inspired (in these days I'm playing a lot with the new Lego Boost set) , I used a well known Lego model. Yes, it is what is seems - a 7720 multiplied by 2 - 32 studs long, 12 studs wide. Even the Voltage is doubled . This was painted blue, otherwise the two red "lights" would disappear. Since track is now quite small - I chose to draw only one central buffer, suggesting this is a narrow gauge model. As you can see it is simple as it can be. I think I can try to stay below the 100 euros limit. Then, this weekend I began to prepare the mock-up to test how heavy it could be, if everything fits inside and so on. Here below you can see the yet unfinished 7720 on steroids . In this photo I used a 45mm track from G-gauge - it is actually a part of LGB track. This big girl will be able to travel on both tracks. Reasoning in studs, the L-gauge puts 4 studs between the wheels, while the G-gauge requires exactly 5 studs. Since wheels will be mounted internally respect to the fake suspensions, both gauges can be achieved by adding or removing two half Technic bushes between the wheels (one per side, so 4 studs + 0.5 stud + 0.5 stud =5 studs). But we want to be cheap - and LGB track are not - so we'll keep the standard Lego track. You cannot see it from the photos, but the black part is all made by 3x2 and 4x2 parts - too small - but I had only those around. Inter-axle is 15 studs - BBB wheels can handle the R40 radius, but this is an heavy locomotive, so I think I'll shorten the inter-axle to 13 studs. Now I'm studying how to transmit power to the wheels - I was tempted to use a chain-driven system based on lego 3711 parts, but it costs a lot and I'm not sure how much weight and torque it can handle. I'll end using the Lego 32702 gears - they seem right and are cheap enough. Let's see how this develops!!! I personally am very curious to see it in action! Ciao! Davide
  7. Hello there, sharing my latest MOC, here is a story about young master WU and his lair. It's built on 4 pieces of 48x48 baseplate. Hope you like it. Thanks!
  8. The Brickwall Memorial Park : The Tropical Garden As a part of the Brickwall Memorial, just next to the Courthouse there is an area left for the gardens to enjoy peace and tranquility. Through those gardens, the Tropical Garden has been designed to better the knowledge of the local Flora of Isla de Victoria. This is a place to chase some colourful butterflies flying around splendid flower beds. This is also a place to study some strange vegetal species the gardener in chief is commisionned to collect. But it's also a great place to rest and to enjoy its beauty and siting around the Brickwall statue is something the Eslandolan citizens are pleased to do. After this Tropical Garden there is an access to the Greenhouse and a short path is leading to the Flower Garden, also parts of the Brickwall memorial.
  9. This pagoda scene was created for display in the upcoming Cactus Brick display in September. This MOC won first place in the club competition for creating Ninjago related creations. It also tied for most eye catching of the creations entered into the competition. Enjoy!

    Essence Of Japan

    Hello, id like to share my latest moc its 4 small scenes featuring some of the more traditional parts of Japanese culture, any feedback and suggestions would be great More images and a better description can be found here - https://ideas.lego.com/projects/19577b3f-6bb5-4103-8cd3-d5e1134c6878
  11. Somewhere in New Terra, in Eltina to be precise, the local taverns and inns are suddenly crowded by seamen and marines of la Royale. This inflow of seamen is not unfamiliar to the residents of the town, each time when a naval vessel or a Terraman anchors at the bay, the sailors would always seek consolation in these establishments, but this time, the locals are suprised by their opulence, spending their doubloons like kings! However, not all of them prefer to throw their doubloons in taverns, some of them choiced to seek a moment of peace, for example to take a rest in the garden of the town, to have a walk with the lady, or to do some gardening. After a long voyage on sea, a marine rifleman takes here a well-deserved rest, an officer of la Royale talks about his latest inter-faction mission to a lady, and we can also see a dude doing some gardening behind the bushes. Misinformation He's hiding gold! Looks like someone has "made" a small fortune during the last voyage, and he's not ready to share it. But why hiding the gold in a garden? Maybe he doesn't know that the BOC is a safer place. Thanks for viewing. Vive le Roi!

    Swedish Cottage

    A typical Swedish cottage that I made for a competition over at Swebrick. Dark red cottages with white corners is as traditional as it gets over here :) Was very frustrating to work in such a small space, but happy with how it turned out in the end. Hope you like it

    MOC Modular villas with garden

    This time I went for a different approach in modular building. Heavily inspired by the Haunted House, I wanted to create a stand-alone building with garden. From the start of the project, I was working in parallel on both of the houses, hence I am presenting them together. At the back of the house, there's lots of space that wasn't filled with details. The plan is to build a railway track in the back for the town layout of our LUG's upcoming exhibition. However, I wanted to add details to the back to see more life in town. There's a small barbecue at the back of the grey house, and a small siting area with wooden table and benches. The houses were built in similar style. It's obvious the sand green one is a MOD of Haunted House, while the grey one followed in style. My favourite details of both houses are the entrances. It's obvious, again, they were made by the same 'architect'. Both of the houses were made in modular fashion. The floors can be lifted to see furnished interiors. To start with the sand green house, there's a lovely corner just under the roof, in the bedroom actually, where the floor is in different levels, to make an easier access to the window, as well as to create a sitting area or just to make room for extra decorations. In the middle floor, there's a reading corner, to enjoy afternoons with a great book and relaxing in a quiet space. The other side of the floor is a bathroom - probably the most challenging build in the house. As it's crammed in a tight space, there's not much room for details. It has the basics (a bath, toilet and a sink) and a few pinkish decorations - it's a girls bathroom. The ground floor is the main area, there's a kitchen partly hidden under the stairs, and on the opposite site is the dining area. I'm quite happy with the kitchen, as I tried a ''different'' look. It gets hard not to repeat yourself with details. The dining area is parallel to a sitting area with a small couch and TV. There's also large glass door to the side porch and a view of the garden. The garden is small, but green. Also, it's facing away from the neighbouring house, so it's a nice and quiet place to relax. On the side, the grey house is more lively, with both colours and life. There's a similar floor arangement, with kitchen, diner and living room on the ground floor. This time, a TV set is hidden under the stairs, and a nice view of the garden can be enjoyed from the couch. The terrace is more open, and is only partly covered by sun shades. From the terrace, the garden is easily accessible. The terrace itself is one of the two favourite parts of the house. My other favourite part of this house is the daybed on the middle floor. It's next to a large window to enjoy the view. It's easy to imagine myself lying there, reading a crime novel, enjoying a hot cup of tea and watching snow falling down (or just daydreaming). There's a bathroom on the middle floor as well, a small one, and similar in style to the bathroom of the sand green house. The top floor is modestly furnished. It's a bedroom, so there's not much to see. My favourite detail is the bed with a book shelf included, that was inspired by one of the Ikea's models. If interested, a few more pictures can be seen on my Flickr.

    Solar Porch

    A replica of the solar porch on the front of my house. It's where all my LEGO MOCs have been photographed, so it has a special significance to my LEGO hobby: See more pictures on my website: http://www.brickbuilt.org/?p=3903 Thanks for looking, C&C appreciated.
  15. Not shure about B model, but A should be garden tractor. B could be simple lawn mover. I'm also thinking about some dragster. Some teaser picture
  16. Hi everyone! My name is Eraman, i'm newbie here. This is my first contest, I'm very excited The idea of my mini lawn tractor came from my older creation. 2 months ago I built a bigger lawn tractor. I thought, it is enough good to try to publish on lego cusoo(lego ideas). https://ideas.lego.com/projects/62241 When I saw this contest, I knew, it will get a "little brother:)" Function: 1. Front wheel steering 2. Rotating blade 3. Openable hood It's not too much function, but it meets the requirments(i hope so ) Rather I tried to create a good-looking tractor. Number of parts: 200 pieces Dimension: length: 18-19 studs width: 9 studs (with wheels ~12studs) height: ~9studs Tyres: lego 42008 (43,2x22), 9390 (30,4x14) Some thoughts about the development: My vehicle was designed in LDD, I worked a lot on it. It's always being under development. Tomorrow I share my first LDD rendered pic and maybe the first real shot. Unfortunately I do not have all color of parts, what I imagined, but LDD pic will show my conception. If i have enough time, i will share some previous and coming problems/moments of the improvement. The promotional picture (black edition): More pic here! Part list: An LDD picture of the final version(green version): (All parts and their colours are official!) LDD file: ver.7.6final Building Instruction here Thanks for reading! ps: sorry for my poor english

    [MOC] Japanese garden

    I recently competed in a seed part challenge called Duel of Pirates on the french forum brickpirate.net. The seed part was a modified 1x2 plate with ladder in dark tan I had two ideas for the part that both fit in a Japanese setting, but in different scale, so I went with a bit of forced perspective on this one.

    MOC Garden Railroad

    Here's my newest creation - a mini railroad diorama! Since this is a diorama of a house and since there is a train in the forum banner, I hope this is the right place (and not train tech). A render of the concept: The finished scene: Without the train: The train in detail: The carriages can hold up to three minifigs each if the hair piece doesn't need too much space. The train is pretty unstable but it is not meant to be played with. The whole train is connected to the scene at two spots. I hope you like it!
  19. Hey guys, I'm new here and would like to present you the WIP of my lawn and garden tractor. At the moment, it features RWD, a turning blade and a V2-Engine. Both are connected to the RWD, which has a differential. The seat is variable, it moves in one stud steps. The front wheels are steered by the small steering wheel. Things I'm having on my to do list at the moment: - I'll have to optimize the partcount to give the lawn and garden tractor a nice body (194 parts at the moment). - Building the model in real life (this will happen next weekend). And I have a picture of the actual virtual model for you, which shows the drivetrain and the frame. In the model above I made the wrong picture, so you can't see the steering. My second picture shows you my virtual model with body parts. I'll use silver and black or red and black. I'll see which plates I have at home and use them in one of the two colour combinations. The basket isn't ready, when playing with the lawn garden tractor the player can remove it. Another small update: I changed the body design, because the first version of the body was too "fat".

    Dwarven Garden

    Even dwarves love flowers. This powerful Dwarve lord is no exception. Deep in the mountains of Mitgardia lies his private magnificent private garden. Today he goes there to reflection on if he should aid the men of Mitgardia in the upcoming battle against Revolword. So this is my entry to the Garden mini-challenge. I think it came out pretty well. Another picture. I really like the dwarven feel that the big columns give off. The waterfall flows out of a chamber above. I used slopes for the base and I love how it came out! The dwarve lord. He looks a bit like a character in The Hobbit... Hope you enjoyed this MOC!
