  1. Trouble in Vulture Creek Here is my take on an Old West Town, called Vulture Creek. A few bandits have helped themselves to the contents of the Town Bank's Vault. Local sheriffs and the US Calvary do there best to restore order to this frontier town.

  3. Villa Del Balbianello is a lakeside villa in Italy built in 1785 expanding on an existing structure from the 13th century. With later additions added throughout the years such as relics added from an explorer. It was also featured in films such as Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) and James Bond: Casino Royale (2006). Also a set on LEGO Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/85ec2902-0e20-40a8-9b18-4a79c9f560af
  4. Hi guys BrickHammer here, as a part of my ongoing journey to build all the things I would have loved to build as a child, I have just created a Forestmen MOC on LEGO Ideas. I tried to capture all the classic elements of the old Forestmen sets while giving the whole thing a brand new look! I hope you like it! I would really appreciate your feedback (and your support)! If you have any question about the MOC, the design choices or the building process, feel free to ask! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/1dab75ef-a79a-4dbd-ad63-8c9433be0c5c/comments_tab#content_nav_tabs

    Lego WW2, Winter war 1939

    My recent history brickfilm about war in Finland in 1939
  7. Here it is! Refinished and redone, with a couple of added bits and bobs, the Mountain Oracle! Ascend the steps of her mountain sanctuary, and just maybe she'll speak to you of the future. This is a MOC I created a while back, I've made some upgrades since the first version. The fountain down in front, as one, as well as that waterfall coming out of the mountain. And a second partial tools up on the hillside to the right. And yes, that staircase is a lot more sturdy than you'd think. It's supported from underneath the platform landing as well as by several clear supports that are hidden behind the staircase itself. This is the original MOC, that's been improved. This MOC (the resubmission) is now gathering support with blazing speed on LEGO Ideas! If you like it and wish to support it, please consider doing so! Thank you! :) https://ideas.lego.com/projects/f31174e5-f828-4ea8-858b-9014d457cbfc You can check out more pictures here on the Flickr page!
  8. Hey guys, BrickHammer here, I have recently created another historic themed MOC for Lego Ideas: the "Legoredo Stagecoach". I tried to combine the historic aethetics of Wild West stagecoaches with LEGO's more colourful classic Wild West look. I originally had intended to include 6 minifigs (2 employees and 4 passengers) but LEGO moderates forced me to reduce the number to 4. I hope you like the build and I appreciate both your feedback and your support :) https://ideas.lego.com/projects/e066297b-7595-4064-a4a8-344fb8abc988
  9. Hello, I own a 070 universal building set from 1967 or so (photo1), but this one has cardboard inlays instead of the plastic ones you can commonly find (photo2). Does anyone has an idea whether it is an older type, or some transition box? I cannot find more info on this. Except: the set 050 from 1964 has similar inlays (photo3)... Thanks for helping me out!
  10. A Castle designed by me for my Kids i such a way as to be as playable as possible. Detailed description and more pictures You'll find on my entry on Lego Ideas. I'll be grateful for Your comments. If You like it, please support on Lego Ideas leave Your comment and don't forget to share with Your Friends :)
  11. Support a LEGO Idea? Submitted this idea to LEGO, but built it to fill a need for more steam punk builds in general. Anyone who's familiar with steam punk have some details they would add to this that could make it more appealing? In 1865, a time traveler came to Abe Lincoln and told him his gruesome fate. Wanting to avoid this, Abe agreed to come aboard the time traveler's vessel and live his best life: treasure hunting through time! Along the way, he gathered a crew of history's most adventurous people. Along with Abe came Cleopatra, Sun Tzu, Socrates, Robin Hood, and Blackbeard. He persuaded these celebrities of history by offering fame and fortune beyond their wildest dreams. The vessel itself is a hardy steam-powered copter ship that can travel on water or through the air. It is driven by a lightning rod device that uses static electricity in the clouds and lightning to power its fuel cell attached to the wheel. That wheel is connected to a helm clock and an engine clock where the crew can set a course for any time throughout history. One can remove the rear deck in order to stow helpful items and treasure! A rear propeller thrusts forward movement while side propellers affect the yaw. Heavy chains keep the rotor and engine assembly stable while in flight. Get ready for adventure and fun as this all-star crew wets their feet on this maiden voyage tea party! Support this time machine idea!

    A Skirmish at North Bridge

    A Skirmish at North Bridge April 18th, 1775 British Redcoats engage in a firefight with local Militia on the outskirts of Concord. This small battle marks the first day of the American Revolution. (I figured as the Revolutionary War took place during the Age of Sail this was a good forum for this build) A Skirmish at North Bridge by Nicholas Goodman, on Flickr A Skirmish at North Bridge: Redcoats by Nicholas Goodman, on Flickr A Skirmish at North Bridge: Mlitia by Nicholas Goodman, on Flickr
  13. I ve being thinking for a while to share with you my Lego Ideas Mocs... and I ve being hesitant. Well I decided to go ahead and do it!!! These is my latest moc and I m planning to upload the others too :) https://ideas.lego.com/content/project/link/3c993b46-9c04-400b-a633-86dd613463cc Based on several Japanese Traditional Watermills, this modular structure works both manually or with added Power Functions. It is made from 2073 Lego bricks, 3 minifigures and PF are also included in the count. When I began my research into Japanese Traditional Architecture I became fascinated with its Watermills... Such simple structures but at the same time so intriguing mechanisms that perform a simple task of grinding! My Working Watermill With Interior & Power Functions consists of the roof, a ground floor and a basement. The big Mill turns either by turning the crank on the rock in the river or by power functions that can be added in the basement. It creates movement in the mechanism found on the ground floor. If PF are not added the basement works as a storage for the seeds that are harvested and awaiting to be grinded. This would make a great set as I feel a working watermill is something missing from Lego sets. Its is very playful and could be easily added in a modular landscape. I m currently in the process of gathering bricks and hopefully before the end of the year I will be able to make it a real-life model! I would like to thank my dear friend @Patgeo for helping me work out and simplify the gears and power function mechanism!!!
  14. I was looking for LEGO Concorde designs but not very much came up in such a small scale so I thought I might as well give it a try. It comes complete with bendable nose cone, retractable landing gears (front and back), moveable back wing flaps (thanks again, mini fig pants...!) and the optional flame FX for... historical accuracy... . . .!? And as always you can find more pics here and if interested in a cutesy little Concorde to swoosh around the full set & instructions are available here. I hope you like my small sized interpretation of one of aviation history's most iconic aircraft. Thanks & have fun! (And many thanks to ukbajadave for explaining to a noob how to implement more pics here!)
  15. IMG-20200718-WA0037 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr Apologies, I am still getting my head around adding photos or hotlinks to Eurobricks. Now on Youtube https://www.flickr.com/gp/189396852@N04/M022um The Royal Albert Hall is situated in South West London and is one of the most internationally recognised buildings. Designed to promote the arts and sciences it has since 1871 maintained its hectic schedule of rock gigs, classical music concerts, community and school concerts, comedy, circus, lectures, film premieres and sports, including tennis and even boxing. It is the Rolls Royce of village halls! IMG-20200718-WA0035 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr The base hinges to split the hall and reveal the auditorium with organ and a grand piano. 20200718_210753 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr 20200718_210544 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr The detailed roof (including the ceiling 'mushrooms' to improve the acoustic) can be lifted as can the auditorium. Each half of the hall can be lifted out to access a basic representation of the loading bay, car park, backstage and arena bars. 20200718_210251 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr 20200718_211952 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr 20200718_211130 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr Further details include the south steps with John Durham's statue of Prince Albert presiding over representations of the four continents and the tree outside stage door planted in tribute to Mario Lanza. IMG-20200718-WA0041 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr Part dolls house, part Russian doll this basically consists of 5 components (base, both halves of the exterior, auditorium and roof) slotting inside the other. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/183167bd-8302-4cbc-bf1d-42f26e96a9dd/comments_tab#content_nav_tabs Please support on Ideas if you like. Many thanks. 20200718_211001 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr I had been stockpiling dark red and tan Lego for some time even though I was too busy to contemplate building the Hall. Then with Covid 19 and the lock down I suddenly had no excuse. The Royal Albert Hall is very close to my heart: I work there and to see it shut and empty is beyond heart breaking. IMG-20200718-WA0032 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr I finished this just as the 2020 Proms started and this is a model to celebrate not just a venue but live music the world over. Wherever you are please look after your arts venues. They will be the last parts of the economy to be reopened and need our help. 20200718_205647 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr 20200718_214133 by Barney Rayfield, on Flickr Please do go to the Royal Albert Hall's website if you want to donate but in the meantime I hope you like the model. Please tell your friends. I am barely on social media so fee free to share photos of it. I might need a piggy back to get this seen. IMG-20200718-WA0038 by Brney Rayfield, on Flickr
  16. Part II: ‘The Serendipitous Gift of Language‘ On the Island of Cozumel, Cortés and his forces readied to set out for the mainland of Mexico. It was March 12th, 1519 and the conquest of the New World was about to begin. As they prepared to leave, a canoe was seen approaching the island from the mainland. A Captain named Andrés de Tapia was dispatched to investigate the strangers. The canoe was manned by several indigenous people but as it reached the shore only one stepped on to the beach. In shaky spanish the stranger asked Tapia “Brothers, are you Christians?” The man was a Spanish priest, named Jerónimo de Aguilar, and he had been shipwrecked 8 years earlier in 1511. During his time on the Yucatan this man had become fluent in various native languages. Cortés immediately employed Aguilar as his interpreter and it would be this ability to communicate that would grant Cortés his first advantage vital to the success of his expedition.

    [MOC] Homeric Galley

    Here is my take on a Minifigure Scale Ancient Greek Homeric Galley. A predecessor to the Bireme and the more widely known Trireme, the Homeric Galley was a rowed warship that sailed the Aegean Sea around the 12th century BC. This ship specifically is based off of the Epic Poem The Odyssey and its protagonist, Odysseus' ship.

    [MOC] Jackal Staff Oasis

    Welcome to the Jackal Staff Oasis! Deep within the sands of a long lost desert, the glittering oasis beckons. Rising amongst magnificent date palms and tranquil, lotus-covered pools, is a fabulous temple containing the vast treasures of the surrounding kingdoms. Young Amata has been sent to retrieve the fabled, powerful Jackal Staff contained within this lush paradise, to bring back to her kingdom in need. I built this MOC digitally about a year and a half ago, with the intention of using it as a contest entry, but then ended up not using it. Later, I revived the design and built it in physical bricks. The model has 1522 bricks total, and measures 12" long, 15.6" wide, and 8.9" high. My favorite part about the whole build is the garden in the front with the water features and the palm trees. A close second would have to be the columns for sure! More pictures can be found in our Flickr album! https://www.flickr.com/photos/orientexpress24/ This MOC is currently up and running on LEGO Ideas! Any support would be greatly appreciated!

    [MOC] Cliffside Villa

    Well, after a long period of not doing much besides the giant Eleitian Central Command model, I present to you my newest model, The Cliffside Villa! The idea came about last Sunday, I was procrastinating on doing stuff I was supposed to, as one does. I decided to expand on the bridge, which I had been building as a standalone concept but couldn't figure out what to do with. I was going to build a fairytale castle on the cliffs that I eventually made behind the bridge, but then it morphed into an entirely different building altogether! The porches, stained glass window, and other elements of the actual pavilion came about next, after I'd laid the groundwork (literally) in the form of the cliffs. I then decided to make it into a combination of my previous Temple of the Moon Maiden MOC and something more open to interpretation. So it could be used, (it sits on a baseplate totaling 32 x 48) as an addition to a modular city! Perhaps a large city park with a pavilion, or some form of garden! From my official description: It's a fine spring day at the Cliffside Villa! The Moon Priest contemplates the deep questions of life on the porch, while his daughter strolls the elegantly appointed walkways of the garden. Two guards stand sentry by the staircase, protecting the inhabitants of the Villa from harm. Explore all the secret nooks and crannies of this large set, from the bell tower to the fish pond to the stained glass window behind which the statue of the Moon Maiden is placed! Set features: - 2568 Pieces - 7 Minifigures: The Moon Priest, Moon Priest's Daughter, Statue of the Moon Maiden, (2) Garden Statues, (2) Guards - Villa features a large stained glass window, metallic Statue of the Moon Maiden on a raised pedestal, and two spacious porches. Upper story features a movable bell! - Elegant bridge crosses a large frog pond filled with lily pads and other aquatic plants. See if you can spot the frogs hiding down there! - Statuary adorns the garden, which is built onto the cliffs with beautiful brick-built birch and cherry trees in full bloom. - Relax on the small bench set below one of the statues! - Features multiple unique pieces, such as the Ornamental gold fish adorning the roof, the Moon Priest's staff, and much more! - Spacious basement level beneath the Villa is perfect for placing hidden treasure or whatever you need for added suspense! But don't just follow that one story for this model, use your imagination to make it your own! This model, on baseplates totaling 32 x 48, can be placed as a standalone model or a complementary model for your modular city! Use it as a pavilion, a city park, or a historical monument in your LEGO town. This MOC is now on LEGO Ideas! If you want to, please help support it, I'd love for it to be one of the lucky few that makes it! The Cliffside Villa: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/4bfda07a-beb1-440e-bcfe-d9742e9d3746 Feel free to leave any comments below, and keep on building, everyone! :)
  22. Hi, there is my contribution to 2019 Summer Joust Collaboration Category. Brother Stud has arrived to the New World, but his endeavour has only begun. He makes his way across the unexplored forests, unmapped rivers and impenetrable mountains. He is not yet aware of the silent company of the local tribes, observing the newcomer with suspicion...
  23. Hello everyone! The first couple of AFOL Designer Sets from BrickLink have arrived to the people who pre-ordered them, so I thought it's time to make a review of my design, The LEGO® Story (which now has a set number too, BL19008). The postman gave me a classic brown box, with the BrickLink logo on it. After I opened it, I was finally able to see the beautiful, high quality box design. It has a white sleeve, with a couple of images of the four vignettes, the BrickLink logo, the 60 years anniversary logo from LEGO and a nice sticker, with "Exclusive LEGO element included" label. When you remove this white part of the box, you can see a nice backdrop photo for the model (on the inner side of the white sleeve), and of course the matte black box, with the BrickLink logo, and a nice brick pattern. The box is closed with a special shiny sticker, which includes the set number and name, and the (user)name of the AFOL who designed it. Let's open this black box! You can see here a thank you message from BrickLink and The LEGO Group, the exclusive element, the numbered bags, and the building instruction: Here is the exclusive element! - 39789pb01 The set contains 9 bigger, and several smaller bags (inside the bigger ones, for the smaller LEGO pieces), which are numbered similarly to the official LEGO set bags. A1 and A2 contains the pieces for the old workshop, B1 and B2 for the old moulding machine, C1 and C2 for the designer's office, and finally D1, D2, and D3 contains the pieces for the modern factory with the big moulding machine. The building instruction booklet is really high quality, just like the ones which you get with the bigger Creator Expert sets these days. I believe most of you have already seen the set on different sites, but here are some photos of the final model, and an official unboxing video made by BrickLink! Official unboxing video:

    [MOC] Battle of Nagashino, 1575

    Hello! I'm happy to present you MOC about Japanese history! The Battle of Nagashino (長篠の戦い Nagashino no Tatakai) took place in 1575 near Nagashino Castle on the plain of Shitarabara in the Mikawa Province of Japan. Takeda Katsuyori attacked the castle when Okudaira Sadamasa rejoined the Tokugawa, and when his original plot with Oga Yashiro for taking Okazaki Castle, the capital of Mikawa, was discovered. Nobunaga's skillful use of firearms to defeat Takeda's cavalry tactics is often cited as a turning point in Japanese warfare; many cite it as the first "modern" Japanese battle. Seeking to protect his arquebusiers, which he would later become famous for, Nobunaga built a number of wooden palisades in a zig-zag pattern, setting up his gunners to attack the Takeda cavalry in volleys. Forces of Oda Nobunaga and Tokugawa Ieyasu. Forces of Takeda Katsuyori. Thanks for watching!

    [MOC] Clovershire Castle

    This is my latest Castle MOC: The Clovershire Castle! Built entirely within the Stud.io program, I began the model with a completely different model in mind. Below is a picture of the Temple of the Moon Maiden, a MOC I had submitted to the LEGO Ideas platform. I wanted to take the bridge you see in the background, as well as the water, and the staircase on the right, and create something totally different with it as a baseline. This was the result: My inspiration came from pictures of old misty castles in Scotland and Ireland. I wanted a ruined castle feel, but one that was also partially restored. The bridge was framed by a ruined window, and the mountainside to the right became a rocky buttress to the crumbling castle wall. And of course I left the lanterns in because I thought they were cool. This model got submitted as a contest entry to the AFOL Designer Program with Bricklink, and became a finalist! Below is the MOC after a couple changes were made by the Bricklink and LEGO teams. It's currently in the crowdfunding stage and accepting pre-orders. If it makes it to the funding goal, it'll become an actual set! At the rate it's going, it seems a little doubtful that it will make it, but there's still hope! If you like it, you can head over to the site and check it out! :) https://www.bricklink.com/v3/crowdfunding/designer-sets-for-adult-fans-of-lego/57599/Clovershire-Castle Stay tuned for my next MOC post! :)
