  1. For the last month I have been designing skylines for the three "The Lord of the Rings" movies/books! "The Fellowship of the Ring" features the Shire, Bree, Weathertop, Ford of Bruinen, Rivendell, Moria (behind Rivendell), the Doors of Durin, and the Gates of Argonath. Moria is hidden behind Rivendell :) "The Two Towers" features Edoras (with the Golden Hall), Fangorn Forest (with micro Ents), Isengard (with Orthanc), the Dead Marshes, and Helm's Deep. Helm's Deep has a play feature built it that allows you to launch part of the fortified wall into the air to reenact the explosion. Here is a view looking down over the Dead Marshes: "The Return of the King" features Minas Tirith, The Black Gate, Barad-dur, the Tower of Cirith Ungol (with hidden Shelob on the back), and Mount Doom. Mount Doom's tiny play feature allows you to drop the ring into the top and it will come out the backside. And here is a view of all three of them lined up together. Anyone interested in seeing additional views can check out my Instagram page (@BenBuildsLego). Instructions are also available for all three on Rebrickable and via the link in my Instagram bio. Let me know what you think of them!
  2. I hope this is the right forum to post this :) Recently I got challenged by my friend Felix to build a micro-scale steam locomotive. I have never tried building anything like this but I gotta say I was surprised how much fun it can be. The new pieces definitely open the whole another world of possibilities when it comes to tiny builds like this. And I am really quite pleased with the result :) If you want to build your own, I put together building instructions which you can get for free on Rebrickable!

  4. I received a lot of positive feedback on my "A New Hope" skyline, so here is the next installment: "The Empire Strikes Back." I'm currently working on creating a skyline with the same dimensions for each Star Wars film - you can see "Rogue One," and "Solo" on my Instagram and Flickr pages. I also made some slight modifications to the design to make the pieces more affordable. Anyone interested can find the instructions here.
  5. These are two more scenes for my Balancing desk toy project! Lego Balancing Toy Rock Raiders Themed Scene by Sandlot Creations, on Flickr The first is a Lego Rock Raiders scene featuring the Chrome Crusher (set 4970), the Tunnel Transport (set 4980) and a pair of Tunnel scouts (from the video game) flying over head. Lego Balancing Desk Toy (Life on Mars Themed Scene) by Sandlot Creations, on Flickr The second is a Lego Life On Mars scene featuring the Red Planet Protector (set 7313), the Aero Tube Hanger (set 7317) with the flying vehicle from the same set flying overhead. Watch the video below to see it in action! Finally, if you would like this to become an official Lego project, consider supporting it on Lego Ideas here: Lego Kinetic Balancing Desk Toy Thanks for watching and let me know scenes you would like to see built!
  6. Hello there! Even though TLC finally stepped out of using big blocky engines, the newest rendition of fake engines isn't very good. Mostly due to the ugly long brown axles and big "crankshaft". Now, it is possible to use the ovaloid-shaped liftarms as the crankshaft with 2l axles and half-bushes, but the entire assembly still occupies a lot of vertical space, specially the Ø3L crankshaft. Now, making something smaller with Technic pieces wasn't possible, so I resorted to System parts. 1x1 plates with 1x1 round plates were the solution looked for. Even though the "pistons" don't have much vertical movement, the engine still sounds great and both inline and v-shape setups can be made, theorically with infinite cylinders as the crankshaft isn't limited by maximum Technic axle length but by how many 1x1 plates can be stacked together. Advantages: Small volume - 3 studs vertical by 2 studs width Little extra space required - approximately quarter of a stud around the crankshaft (Technic axles can be placed alongside it) Produces sound as well as other fake engines V-shape or Inline engines possible Disadvantages: small vertical piston travel Crankshaft doesn't use Technic pieces so can be difficult to correctly space (stacked plates height vs Technic stud width) and might break if too long or abused too much Here's a video showing both setups and sound (e-motor is very quiet so the engine can be heard)
  7. Here is a little crew! These two models are very compact, so very simple technically. I wanted to do the same type of model as the little LEGO sets. The forklift: The arm can be moved using a worm gear/8t system. The towballs are here to limit the movement of the system. The fork moves when you turn the 12t gear. There is a pin with friction to keep it in position. The truck is even simpler. It has a steering and the dropsides are openable. The LDD file is available on Rebrickable. And here is the video!
  8. From left to right: Oldtown, King's Landing, Highgarden, Casterly Rock, Riverrun, the Eyrie, and Winterfell. I wanted to do a Lego Architecture Skyline of the seats of powers of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. Unfortunately, not all of them have been seen in the show. So Oldtown subbed in for Sunspear and King's Landing subbed in for Storm's End. After reviewing the entire build, I streamlined the parts usage to be more affordable and created instructions, which can be accessed here for anyone who might be interested. You can also find me on Instagram @BenBuildsLego.
  9. Behold the wonders of America's most unique and iconic National Park! Visitors from around the world travel to Yellowstone National Park to experience its unforgettable natural wonders. This microscale set comprised of 550 pieces includes the most celebrated locations of the park, including: The Roosevelt Arch Grand Prismatic Spring Yellowstone Lower Falls Old Faithful Geyser The Old Faithful Inn (the largest log-style structure in the world!) If you love enjoying the beauty of nature and Lego, I would be forever thankful for your support! You can also find me on Instagram @BenBuildsLego

    Micro Space (Microfighter MOCs)

    Hi all, I was inspired by the mini Galaxy Explorer in the DK Great Lego Sets book but felt it was missing its astronaut - that led me to start exploring Microfighter-style sets for classic space - probably the era, alongside Pirates, for which I have the most affection. I'm certainly not the first to do this, but one thing I did want was to include the playability of these sets, so I tried to incorporate, wherever possible, the modular play functions of the originals. The Solar Power Transporter was particularly tricky (wasn't it called Saturn Ranger in UK catalogues?) and I while I did find a way to clip the wheels under the wings as per the original, it wasn't very aesthetically pleasing. I tried to keep to a 1:2 scale of the originals, and not go quite as chibi as the official Microfighters - but it was largely impressionistic. Anyway - I hope you like them! Edited to add a little fun pic at the end inspired by the heyday of Lego Space box art
  11. Specifications: (source: feature video, see above) I do not own the rights for the original design: the ship is created for a hard sci-fi audio drama The Sojourn produced by Spacedock. The model is created using LEGO Digital Designer, rendered in POV-Ray and post-processed in Adobe Photoshop. The Instructions are available on my Gumroad Store FOR FREE: https://gumroad.com/l/sjrn_gvnvr Thank you for your attention!
  12. Celebrate the historic neoclassic home of one of America’s most famous Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson! Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello home began construction in 1768, when he was only 26 years old. America’s third president was never fully satisfied with his design, and the house was continually redesigned throughout his lifetime - not so unlike Lego fanatics constantly reworking their own builds. This microscale Monticello has been meticulously and faithfully rendered to capture the unmistakable appearance of the iconic building, known to all Americans as “that building on the back of the nickel coin.” The 930-piece set would appeal to lovers of Lego’s Architecture series, and would also contain highly sought after dark red pieces that have never before been produced. The design could also be scaled down to remove the some of the landscaping (the house by itself contains under 650 pieces). If you love architecture, history, and Lego, I would be forever thankful for your support on Lego Ideas! @BenBuildsLego | Flickr
  13. Hi there guys, I havent posted in a while but thats not because I haven't been building, I have just been away with work! I have a couple of builds to share with you starting with this... It is my recreation of the final scenes from Revenge of the Sith. As with all my MOCs I have kept this on a 16x16 base. Here it is in comparison to the actual scene from the film... Quite a fun build this, especially making the Death Star look like it is in the early stages of construction. And I loved the fact I could use the new style Vader and Tarkin (From A-Wing vs Tie Advanced set) as I think they are two really good looking mini figs. I took the figures off for these shots to show the detail on the panelling. Finally, It is impossible to resist a selfie! As always I hope you enjoy and any feedback would be greatly appreciated! More builds on the way!

    Kassiopeia Exploration Vessel

    Hey! While working on my Resurgent-class SD I created this MOC. Started as tablescrap and turned out pretty well as microscale spacecraft SO - thats the reason behind the KASSIOPEIA Exploration Vessel. It roughly took me about 10 hours. Source1 Source2 Greetings Kommander
  15. Peter Blackert has made teaser instructions available for his new book: "How to Build Brick Airplanes". See instructions and more details here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-17304/lego911/miniplane-lockheed-sr-71-blackbird/ It is a cute little "micro" plane and perhaps a substitute for the humongous version which the book also has instructions for. It is in scale 1:48! The micro build includes a stand, can be reused for other micro airplanes in the book. With such a small build it is only very few details that can be selected for inclusion. Among these it is easy to spot the red detailing (I believe the red marked "do not step" zones on the original, but I might remember wrongly). The engines are also featuring prominently, and much of the angular detailing of the wings are there. This was enough for me to recognize the model The instructions also show how to add landing gear if you prefer to display models on the ground. I am looking forward to see which of the models from the book I am able to build without too much investment into Bricklink.

    Digital MicroCITY

    Hallo, I've made some digital inspirations for future project of our LUG - MicroCITY. Inspiration comes from existing blocks of flats built in our city in 1950s, modified and adjusted to fit in modules of 32x32 baseplates. Built in LDD, rendered in Bluerender.
  17. CAMPAIGN 6 -- TOOHATI Location: Outside Army Base Oscar, in Xenor Recent satellite images showed a convoy preparing to leave Oscar Army base. It's cargo: believed to be Toohati POWs. Specters 1 and 2 were launched to intercept, and hopefully bring back all POWs, alive and well. [GBW-CP7] Specter 1 "This Specter 1, do you copy? Moving into position, the convoy is in sight." [GBW-CP7] Convoy [GBW-CP7] Specter 2 "Specter 2 copies. Confirm visual." [GBW-CP7] "Engaging..." "Beginning attack run. Confirmed target is here." [GBW-CP7] Fire 1! "One down, acquiring secondary target..." [GBW-CP7] "Acquiring Target..." [GBW-CP7] Fire 2! "No more armed hostiles. Specter 2, you are cleared to move in." [GBW-CP7] Specter 2 Inbound "Cover my approach. Don't need a surprise." "Got your back, Specter 2." [GBW-CP7] Cover Me! [GBW-CP7] Touchdown! "Team deployed.. Wait one... Woohoo! The POWs are here, we're bringing them aboard!" _________________________________________________________________________________________ Micro-scale is really a great way to depict battles. It's so much easier to deliver a detailed fight scene this way! Hope you guys like it as much as I do. Feel free to give C&C! And the overview shot. For the judges.

    [MOC] NCS Micro Spaceship

    Over seven years ago, I made my way out of the last of the few LEGO dark ages I've had in my life. I discovered SNOT and micro building, and I put together this little spaceship dedicated to my favorite LEGO theme of all time: Classic Space. It was simple, but it was also clean and it shifted the way I thought about building with LEGO bricks. I was proud of it, and when I discovered Eurobricks (and Flickr), I decided that it represented me more than a typical minisigfig, so I made it my avatar. I never took it apart and it sat around in my collection undisturbed due to how fond I was of it. Recently, however, I started to feel that it deserved a bit of an update, especially since it represents me as my avatar, as I think I have grown quite a bit as a MOC builder. And so I set about the task of one-upping one of my favorite personal MOCs and this is what I came up with: I am very pleased with build and I believe it better reflects my current building level and style; and thus, it has become my new avatar. Here's a pic of the old one and new one side by side for comparison: And here's a pic just for fun: Additional pics are under the spoiler tag, and as always, comments and criticisms are welcome!

    MOC - Lichtenstein Castle

    My entry for the Fictional Architecture category of Marchitecture. I chose to recreate Lichtenstein Castle, which is a real building, but is also used as the castle in Dornröschen – a 2009 German film adaptation of Sleeping Beauty. The model certainly had its challenges, but I’m very pleased with the end result. Credit for the bridge design goes to John, who helped me out with that portion. Plenty more pictures are available on Brickbuilt. Feedback always appreciated
  21. I’ve always liked the classic Ice Planet theme that LEGO made, and after looking at Chris Perron’s incredible Ice Inspector and Siercon and Coral’s magnificent Ice Planet Base, I wanted to try my hand at a build in the classy blue, white, and trans-neon orange colors. I’m quite pleased with the result, and it was very enjoyable to build. The micro truck outside the main base is supposed to be a rendition of Chris’s monstrous Ice Inspector that I linked to earlier in the post, though unfortunately I wasn’t able to pack in all the details on it that I would have liked to. Hopefully it is still recognizable as being inspired by his masterpiece though! This build was my first time trying to incorporate lights into a model, which was both fun and frustrating at times. I’m pretty happy with the result, but if anyone has tips or suggestions about ways to improve it, definitely let me know! I also want to give huge thank-you to Graham Gidman for helping me out with the edit, I know it wouldn’t have turned out this well without his help! Lots more pictures on Brickbuilt. Thanks for looking, C&C welcome!
  22. Hi everyone! This is a microscale recreation of the Marvel Super Heroes set 76051 Super Hero Airport Battle for the 60th Anniversary of the LEGO Brick contest on Brickset. Here is a pic of the original set for comparison. I tried to include as many details as I could. And here's a back view of the build: I hope you like it.
