  1. Water Mill Lego MOC - With Power Functions Old german water mill with Steampunk alternate side with Power Functions Special thanks to BricksToGo
  2. Ladies and Gentlemen, Meet Jacek and Placek: Known also as The Two Who Stole the Moon Loosely based on Kornel Makuszyński's 1928 story "The Two Who Stole the Moon".
  3. One of my favourite Disney movies from my childhood was Atlantis: The Lost Empire, I loved the industrial machines and the cartoon art style which was like a comic book and enjoyed the story and its characters a great deal. Set in the early 1900’s, the film follows a young linguist named Milo Thatch who dreams of one day fulfilling his grandfather’s dream of finding the lost city of Atlantis. I recently decided to fulfil my childhood dream of designing a full range of sets based on the movie in the style of official LEGO sets, all in LDD. I have a total of 6 sets finished so far and will be posting them here one by one from smallest to biggest, I hope you enjoy them! 01. Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire, The Shepherd's Journal The hero’s journey begins when he is approached by a mysterious woman called Helga Sinclair who introduces him to Preston Whitmore, a billionaire industrialist who knew his grandfather. In his office Milo is given the all-important artefact to begin the quest: The Shepard’s Journal, which includes maps and clues which only he can read which will guide an expedition to finding the lost city. This small set marks the beginning of the adventure featuring: - Preston B. Whitmore, Milo Thatch and Helga Sinclair minifigures - The Shepard’s Journal book - Printed tiles representing the portfolio papers of the expedition specialists and crew - A miniature model of the Ulysses, the massive submarine which the expedition begins the journey on - The fireplace, fish tank and a globe from the office as well as several small statues and other artefacts in Whitmore’s collection. The model contains approximately 105 pieces. 02. Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire, Sub Pod The expedition starts off aboard the Ulysses, a massive submarine, but is soon attacked by a gigantic mechanical sea monster known as the Leviathan. To defend itself the Ulysses deploys many small submarines called Sub-Pod’s which are armed with torpedoes to battle the monster. Features include: - Gaetan "Mole" Moliére and Vincenzo "Vinny" Santorini minifigures - 8 flick-fire torpedoes mounted on the two main fins of the pod which can also rotate - Opening cockpit which can fit both minifigures - Spinning propeller The model contains approximately 194 pieces.

  4. The mechanical detail is more aesthetic than plausible. Yet, there are elements taken from what an early steam walker should have looked like, besides the vibrant colours. Most of its inhards are shown, there are very few largue pieces of metal, structural elements take over shape design. It is somewhat outlandish, taking a mechanical shape similar to that of many tin toys. Even if it seems to be something rather decorative, there are a few tricks to make it more resistant than it seems. Legs rest directly over the axle pillar and the superstructure it hides. Feet are also anchored to the base to avoid deformation.
  5. Like many people, I regarded steam locomotives as rather dark and monstrouos machines untill I first saw their early iterations. It was a novel technology at the time, so embelishing them for the amazed crowds and potential contractors should have been appropiate. The mechanical detail is more aesthetic than plausible.

    [MOC] Technopil City

    Once I have visit city Ternopil (Ukraine), and saw there a nice church. Since that I wanted to recreate it in bricks. It is not exactly that church (and not in Ternopil), but also not bad, as for me. For the second tower I just haven't parts. Also I haven't parts for square in front, so I made just stands for small scenes of citylife and unite all in one with pipes. So free your imagination ;-)

    Abomirex the Mechanical Terror

    So, here's a MOC that's actually a few years old that I'd neglected to post because I wasn't super satisfied with the photos nor the build itself, but after stumbling across it again browsing through folders I think it has at least some merit, so I now present to you... The Abomirex (or A-rex if you prefer)! A mechanical monster created by one of the most diabolical minds in all the known world as a weapon of terror and conquest. Sporting massive razor-sharp claws, built-in weaponry, and tremendous mechanical strength, only the most skilled and nimble of heroes can hope to stop it. Initially conceptualized as far more overtly birdlike, with wings utilizing the clear orange sail pieces from that one Ninjago set, but I couldn't come up with a decent enough design and thus went in a more saurian direction because dinosaurs are neat. It can't see through walls, however, which could provide our hero with the upper hand. (also sort of inspired by the movie "9" and by extension the short film it was based on) Snout splits open to reveal a flamethrower. Hope your shield spell is up to snuff, or you'll be snuffed out. Get it? Fire jokes. One of its least immediately obvious weapons is its bladed claw tail, catching its opponents by surprise! But if caught, perhaps a lucky swing could bring our hero close enough to a weak point... The conspicuous power source on its back totally wasn't that weak point, why do you ask? At ease, or perhaps scanning the horizon. In profile. Torso construction detail. Full disclosure, I don't remember it being particularly sturdy, and in addition to looking somewhat jumbled overall, it's part of why I'd neglected to share it earlier. But the aesthetic still sort of works for a steampunk/dieselpunk/frankenstein mad sciencey sort of look. (also tangent time: I hate steampunk and think it's super overplayed, or at least the variation of it that everyone falls back on. what part of "british aristocracy in fancy dress with gears glued to it" is "punk", exactly?) Obligatory gag scene. Full gallery here!
  10. This is my 2018 build in steampunk style of a flying rock with a small house on top. It has a dock with airboat moored. The rock houses rechargeable battery which in turn powers an M-motor that drives the windmill. The airboat features two domes right from Johnny Thunder Scorpio Palace set. I have waited several years to use it in this configuration :P when finally I had good opportunity to do so. I hope you'll enjoy it! I only have photos from the exhibition, I'm sorry for lack of clarity due to that. There are some distractions in the background...

    [MOC] Endarmire Iron Mine

    During the 19th century, steam was the primal and most important source for machinery and vehicles. Besides steam-powered vehicles, mechanics developed clockwork machinery. Interesting and very usefull machinery were the result of the developing. The miners are mining in the Endarmire Iron Mine. They’re searching for iron. The mechanics use the iron to build (mining) machinery. The Endarmire Iron Mine is a large mine, which contains lots of iron and other ores. In the workshop, three mechanics are assembling clockwork drones. The drones going mining for iron. A large mineshaft brings the miners and drones into the mine. The conveyor belt brings the crates, filled with iron, outside the mine. The conveyor belt and mine shaft are motorized. In the center of the layout is a ore-cruncher. There are two docks for flying transport vehicles. Pictures: 01_Endarmire_Iron_Mine by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 02_Endarmire_Iron_Mine by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 03_Endarmire_Iron_Mine by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 06_Endarmire_Iron_Mine by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 19_Endarmire_Iron_Mine by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 31_Endarmire_Iron_Mine by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr 18_Endarmire_Iron_Mine by Mathijs Bongers, on Flickr I've took pictures of the individual Steampunk machines, I'll post them soon If you want to see more (detailed) pictures of the layout, see my Flickr album: https://www.flickr.com/photos/mathijslegofan/albums/72157664907370627 I hope you like it
  12. (First off, I want to apologize for these photos: I didn't have an area big enough to handle the four story tall building, so I improvised. It doesn't look very pretty, but it's passable.) I was inspired to create this model from the 2018 Jurassic World set 75930, Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate, with some design cues from set 10228, Haunted House. I made the mansion to replace this other MOC I had made, but don't worry, the other building still exists, it's just empty right now. THE MANSION The dollhouse-style model was built from the set pictures, with the play features removed and opening rear sections added to match the front half. The model also features a round window for letting in moon light in on the mad doctor's experiments, along with lightning rods on top of the house. (for powering his experiments) The rear of the mansion features a back door (perfect for escapes when the locals get feisty about the scientist playing with time travel again!) and the chimney flue. The bottom floor features the living room and dining rooms, while the second floor is the bedroom, study and pipe organ rooms. The third floor features the laboratory for the study of time travel. The rear door to the outside is in this section, while the safe containing the house's title and family paper work is directly above on the second level. This area also has stairs from first to second floors. The left rear quarter features the fireplace and telephone on the first floor and a bed for the second floor's master bedroom. The stairs to the third floor are also on this side. THE ROADSTER The stylish car is heavily modified version of Brick-Link set BL19011 (Vintage Roadster) turned blue. The car model is about 10 studs wide (with a large overhang on each side due to the white fenders on front and rear) and is 36 studs long, front bumper to rear bumper. The car can now seat two mini-figure's in the seating area, and as before feature removable engine cowling sections for a look at the V8 heart of the car. The headlights are now secured more tightly, and the front windscreen glass is now trans-black and not inclined anymore. (it was bugging the heck out of me that it wouldn't stay in place!) The taillights were moved down onto the rear bumper. No real reason for the change, it just seemed like a good idea. THE TIME MACHINE Here is the Scientist's 1920's-period time machine, rebuilt from set 76109 (Quantum Realm Explorers). I fixed the rotating side engines of the original Marvel superheroes set, as these objects are now (mostly) locked in the position shown. THE END? More may come later, I'm not quite sure on what to build next. As usual, comments, questions and comments are always welcome!

    [MOC] Iron

    I wanted to build it for next Shiptember, but its impossible to wait if an idea in your head doesn't want to leave it 24/7. For sure its not 100 studs long but also not so small. I try to realize similarity with early battleships of XX century, added a big headlight like in steam locomotive, some other elements I took from art, I found in internet. And as a result we have this: the corvette bearing the number 04. It is one of Iron-class spaceships from Morgrim squadron. His captain is fearless Quark Quasarsson. I don't know why but I've invented the crew also. There is no space inside the ship to put them in, so they can only stand on the deck. But I just like them. Funny characters with cool names. On the group photo you can see the Captain itself, his helper boatswain Wimp Fuorsson, cannoneers squad an their Corporal Blazar HI, techintians and First engineer Pulsar Higgs. Some details
  14. This weekend I got my hands on some of the new Lego Movie 2 CMFs. As one of them was the "Apocalypse Abraham Lincoln", I decided to create a post-apocalypse version of his rocket chair from the first movie. I went for a Steampunk theme to go with his new look and for a few hour's work, I think the result's not too bad. I give you The Emancipator Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr I also came up with a little backstory for the pilot... Obviously he's not the real Abe Lincoln, he's actually a former history teacher who, following the DUPLO invasion, found himself living in Apocalypseburg. Like most of the town's citizens, he had heard of the horrors beyond the town's walls; the cat worshipping warrior women, the mutant swamp beasts, the rogue biker gangs and worse (not to mention the DUPLO aliens themselves). Unlike many of the other citizens though, he decided to do something about it. Creating a persona based on the original Abraham Lincoln, he set about bringing freedom to all with the help of his steam powered, lighter than air, balloon chair airship (there's a sentence I never thought I'd type!!). Named The Emancipator it takes him out across the desert wastelands in search of the weak and vulnerable who he guides back the the relative safety of Apocalypseburg. I like to try an imagine how such a craft might actually work and this is what I've come up with!! (complete with dodgy Steampunk pseudo-science!!) Lift comes from spherical balloon filled with lighter than air gas.. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr While the rear mounted steam driven propellor provides forward thrust... Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Heat from the firebox (the 2x1 black textured brick) heats the water in the rear most cylinders. The resulting steam is fed into the power unit where it drives a turbine and spins the drive shaft and the prop. The exhaust gases from the fire escape through the chimney while the steam condenses in the forward cylinders for reuse. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr For defence, The Emancipator is equipped with 2 "Faraday Cannons". Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr The specially designed glass cylinder collects and stores atmospheric electricity. When needed this can be released as a powerful burst of lightning. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr The craft is still a WIP, "Abe" hopes to continue to improve on the design (a larger hot-air version using the exhaust gases to fill the balloon is one idea, he is also looking to fit it with searchlights and enhanced vision equipment to allow it to operate at night) but for now, "Abe" and his craft remain a welcome sight for those pour souls trapped in the wastelands... Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr I have to say I really enjoyed this build. Having never built a Steampunk inspired model before it was good fun and we may see more of "Abe" and his adventures!! Thanks for looking - comments are always welcome!!

    [MOC] Steampunk Moon City

    Two years passed since I've built it and now I can show you my old MOC at last... Ehh, don't ask me why so long. At first there was just an idea to build some houses inside a railway ring. The railway circle was the basis of all. And steam rocket should be there of course, because you can see rockets not very often in steampunk plots. When I started to build, the story wasn’t finally formed, and I only had a rough sketch of a project. So I thought: "If I have a rocket, then steampunk city on the Earth is too simple for lore", so it became the Colony on the Moon. And since the Moon is made of cheese ( I think you won't mind about this fact) it should be cheese-mining city. It’s all I knew, when I started to build. But to be true, when I finished it, I can't say I know much more now. I don't know exactly what function of every building is. I think you can find here likely to alchemy laboratory, the old tower of the first colonist Kiba Azzoh, ticket office, observatory, pub, and some combination of post office and power station. There were plans to do a lot of movable mechanisms, but I left only turnable planets, elevator and a tram.Because too good isn't good, too. Video included.

    [MOC] Steampunk CATractor

    Cat-tractor and rat. Friends 4ever!
  17. Hey guys, Some of you may remember the time a few years ago when the first rumours about the Lego Nexo Knights theme began to surface. Some sources claimed to know, that the theme would be Castle combined with Steampunk elements. Some said, the set that we today know as 70317 The Fortrex was actually going to be a giant walking Steampunk fortress. I was really fascinated by those descriptions. Of course, as we all know today, the actually Nexo Knights theme had nothing to do with Steampunk, which really disappointed me. But the picture of a big Steampunk Castle still was floating in my head and so I decided to just build one. What you can see here is the result of that decision: A Steampunk version of the "Fortrex" indeed. It has got everything a proper Lego Castle needs: Drawbridge, Cranes, 2 towers at the front, 1 in the back... and it can walk on four feet powered by a steam engine with giant smokestack! It's pretty cool, isn't it? It took me a long time to build this model but I'm really satisfied with the overall outcome. The biggest challenge for me was designing the legs because I wanted them to be kind of posable but still had to allow them to hold the high weight of the castle above. I also had a lot of fun finding ways to use interesting looking parts and colours in strange "steampunky" ways. For more pictures and information you can visit the Lego Ideas page of this model: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/9bd75f34-22e7-4146-8e02-089cfb9314e4 And if you're already there I of course would be very thankful if you could support the project. ;-) I'm also interested in your opinion regarding Nexo Knights: Would you have had preferred a Steampunk version of the theme or were you happy with what it turned out to be? I'm looking forward to reading you're comments!

    [MOC] Captain Nemo's car

    This is a small build for the Eurobricks 2018 event in Billund. The goal was to build a car in the Speed Champions style, either an actual car or a movie car. Since I'm not a car buff I opted for the latter. The car is Captain Nemo's car, from The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I took some creative liberties to make it more Speed Champions like rather than going for accuracy. Comments are welcome, and check out my Flickr for higher resolution photos! Wasn't quite sure which forum this belonged in, but since it's a steampunk car it ended up here.
  19. The Black Crow is the ideal adventure 4x4 for the discerning gentleman like Lester looking to travel the world in style and comfort. There is ample storage room in both the back and the roof for all life's necessities. The powerful engine will get you over all terrain and is easily accessed and maintained. A fold-out awning provides shelter from sun and rain alike while you examine the treasures of your travels or enjoy a well earned cup of tea. Adventure Awaits!

  21. Hello everyone! we want to share with you our new weekly video on the channel! It is a fully motorized steampunk inspired moc. To build it, it took about 70,000 pieces. The builder is the friend of Dario Tiezzi. Hope you like it!! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCB2Ks_69diJsB1LcMlqONvA?sub_confirmation=1
  22. I've been on a steampunk kick recently... here are the fruits of my digital labors. The building's a WIP in the real world, while the rest will come later. From a WHAM product brochure (circa late 1909): "Here at WHAM (Wayne Highly Advanced Mechanisms) we always have our eyes on the horizon of the future. From our humble beginnings designing our first line of industrial hyper-reactors, to our more recent ideas of regular rockets to the moon, we here at WHAM are always striving to make our world - and beyond - a better place for us, our children, and so on out into the great unknown of the distant future. I should know, because as son of founder of WHAM, Dr. Lucius Wayne, I, Floyd Wayne am here for YOU. Don't believe me? You can see inside this brochure of our upcoming products for 1910 and decide for yourself. If you have any questions or requests for specific machines, please write to our Marketing and Public Relations department as shown on the back page and I'll see your special needs are filled. Remember: Don't buy a scam, buy a WHAM!" Here are the models I've worked on / revised: the giant robot, frog translator chair, laboratory building, automobile, and personal rocket. Because why should you not have a steam-powered mobile translator device for your highly intelligent pet Frog? Oh, and the inventor of this and much more is Lord Floyd Wayne, an eccentric Victorian inventor with whom failure is not an option. (In case anyone couldn't tell I was listening to Pink Floyd songs while creating these as that's where the inventor's first name came from. Oh, and as a fun note, the frog's chair actually began life as Davros' (creator of the Daleks) chair from Doctor Who. ) This rocket (named the Golden Bullet) is designed for atmospheric travel only, as it does not have a complete canopy nor air tanks for outer space travel. (actually, it was inspired by LEGO Universe' steampunk rocket, but with more recent parts and several recolors) The ship is powered three smaller booster motors and one larger main engine. (The rocket's original inspiration was taken from the first LEGO MMO from 2010, LEGO Universe.) The Golden Bullet comes apart in three sections, with the nose cone, cockpit and engines all being removable from each other. (NOTE: This print is missing from the dark tan 1 x 6 tiles on the driver's compartment.) This giant robot (named the Brass Man) was created by Lord Floyd Wayne as an tool for outer space exploration. Everything the robot sees is transmitted back to it's home base via a hyperspace sub-channel to be recorded and viewed for scientific study. The Brass Man is powered by a experimental hyper-matter reactor, which gives off steam as a safe and harmless by-product. (The robot was originally inspired by @hachiroku's Iron Giant, seen here) The monocle seen here is supposed to have this print. as a sort of targeting computer for weapons and for long-distance magnified viewing. The robot's main weapon is this laser pistol that disintegrates on contact. Only Lord Floyd (it's inventor) knows how it works, as he doesn't want any Earth governments to discover it's dark secrets. This device is only to be used for self-preservation and at that only as a last resort. I plan on using my version of the 2018 Marvel Comics 'infinity War" set 76108 (Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown) for a 1920's-flavored steampunk take on a mad scientist trying to open a time doorway into the beginning of the universe. What he doesn't know is that creatures from before our universe began were destroyed at that moment, so they will come through the doorway to the mid-1920's as a way of sheltering themselves from that fate. Unfortunately, being from that time frame, of course they want to end our Universe so they can live again in peace. As this takes place in my Adventure-verse, Johnny Thunder is tasked with shutting down the doorway before our universe sinks back to before the big bang... and Sam Sinister is trying to use the time / space doorway to achieve vast riches by robbing ancient cultures of their valuables using the Time Window, which draws the attention of the giant robot seen next to the building, leading to a cascading domino-like series of events that have not yet been written. The rear of the building has a ground-floor conservatory. The rearmost window on the bottom floor opens up 90 degrees to allow for figure placement in the conservatory. As a side note, the original Marvel model's exploding walls and drop-floors have been removed. The means from getting from one floor to another is a spiral staircase, and a small skylight has been added to the roof. The inside feature the following: The lower floor has a fireplace with clock on mantle, table with a pizza, and lamp on a side table. The middle floor features a marble bust on a printed safe, and a bed. The dark red thing in the greenish jar is a beating human heart. The upper floor features a desk with some sort of electricity storage machinery, several flasks, two bookcases, time portal computer and microscope. This early-1900's automobile was designed with the tan off-road model in set 76003 (Battle of Smallville) in mind, with a bit of 7628 (Peril in Peru) thrown in for good measure. I was aiming for continuing my Steampunk theme, but ran into a mental roadblock with regards to this car, and about four other prototypes that didn't make he cut. (Sadly, they were accidentally saved over and are now gone) The rear of the model with the spare tire, brake lights, and dual exhaust pipes. ...And that's it for now! Any questions, comments, complaints, and suggestions are always welcome!
  23. Long before the Iron Giant began hurtling towards Rockwell, there was a prototype model, which landed on Earth close to 34 years earlier than the Iron Giant's 1957 landing. They were very similar robots, made by an Ancient race of beings that wanted to gather as much information about the Universe as possible. They first created this prototype model which was made mostly of brass, copper, and iron, but was powered by a highly advanced Fusion reactor that was powered by metals the robot consumed, usually uninhabited asteroids floating through space. The Brass Automaton was armed with a unique staff and like the later Iron Giant, would only fire it's weapon as a self defense mechanism which would only activate as a last resort for self preservation. The Brass Automaton was armed with a detachable staff capable of firing immense power blasts, whereas the Iron giant featured built-in weapons that become visible when seriously threatened. Unlike the Iron Giant, this prototype was not able to re-assemble itself as it had a error in it's programming. In the year 1923, the then un-named Brass Automaton landed in the Pacific Ocean near the long-forgotten Dino Island. It created a tsunami and unhinged the island from the Earth's crust and as such the land began to sink. The robot was first sighted by nearby French sailors, who upon seeing the giant being arise from the water, tried to describe the being the best way they could through their wireless telegraph: they named it the Brass Automaton. Johnny Thunder and his Adventurers crew went looking for this great metal being after saving as many dinosaurs as possible from the sinking primeval island, but never saw it, as it was walking along the seafloor towards the South American coastline to gather information on the dominant beings of Earth, also known as Humans. After staying relatively hidden in various secluded places around the globe for around a year and a half, the Brass Automaton was finished reading the minds off local people for information on humans as a species: Our past, our present as of 1924, our origin, and our many languages, along with defenses, politics, and technology. After gathering all that intelligence, the Brass Automaton headed to the North Pole to transmit the required information to it's home planet using a faster-than-light sub-dimensional beacon. (Basically, a fancy radio) That is just about when a major solar storm hit the Earth, with the radiation hitting the atmosphere of the Earth and scrambling the outgoing signal into nonsense. Now the garbled signal was received by the home base, and as a precaution, the Iron Giant version of the Brass Automaton was dispatched as fast as possible to earth. (That would take it nearly 35 years for it to get there at all possible speed, which would require it to refuel once arriving on Earth, which is why the Iron Giant was at the power plant at the begging of the movie, whereupon it's memory was scrambled by the high-voltage electricity) After sending the garbled message and being struck by lightning as a result of the solar storm, the Brass Automaton was temporarily incapacitated. It was then discovered at the northern tip of Greenland by Dr. Harold Wormwood and brought back in pieces to his stately laboratory mansion in rural Louisiana, where he ran test after test on the alien visitor. By 1925, the mad scientist-type Doctor Wormwood had the resembled robot nearly reassembled, and was preparing to restart it when a Lord Sam Sinister came upon rumors of the robot and wanted it for his own nefarious desires, with Johnny Thunder close on his heels... The Brass Automaton is twice as tall compared to a typical BIONICLE figure, which barely comes up to the Automaton's knees. The Brass Automaton features a powerful staff that was given to it by a race of bio-mechanical beings from the planet Bara Manga around 300,000 years ago. This weapon is called the Staff of Ages, and can focus power drawn from the Brass Automaton's fusion reactor to a form a massive power blast or a more finely-tuned laser beam, among other features. In reality, this is a recolored and modified version of @hachiroku Iron Giant model (as shown directly above). I made it into steampunk colors with a giant staff as a weapon and new, larger head. I am also writing a backstory for the model with inspiration coming from the BIONICLE Generation 1 story-line with the Mata-Nui Robot, the Great Beings and so on. You can see the original model's topic by Hachiroku here, in the sci-fi theme forum.

    [MOC] House of the Inventor

    Hi everyone! First post! My name if Filip and even though I have been playing around with Lego for many years both as a kid and with my own kids I'm quite new to the AFOL-scene. I was encouraged to post this to Eurobricks by LegoModularFan who gave me some overwhelmingly nice comments on Flickr yesterday when I posted this so here goes! I created this for Brixtars modular building competition and this is my second attempt at a full fledged 32x32 modular building. My first building, "The Queens Brick" was quite square in it's shape so I wanted to challenge myself this time and put much more round shapes and angles in there. It was a lot of fun trying out different techniques where some worked better than others but I'm quite happy with the end result even though it will for sure not win any prizes for stability ;) Technically it doesn't really meet the requirements of a modular since I didn't put the technical bricks in there and the street is a bit narrow but it would be an easy enough mod to make it legal. Enough words and on with pictures of my steam-punkish house on the hill with a secret lab for horrible experiments on the top floor and a basement where the irresponsible owner pours his toxic waste out in the sewer system. Here is a link to the rest of the images: https://flic.kr/s/aHskuXCmdk It's quite often one sees micro builds of regular sized modulars but this was actually made the other way around. The idea started with an all digital micro build I did for a competition last year that looked like this: The instructions for the building is available on Brixtar but please bear in mind that the digital instructions are not 100%. For instance, the smaller roof used some parts that didn't actually exist so they need to be replace. Also both roofs need some very heavy reinforcing or they will, I know from hard experience, crumble in your hands :) But please use them as a source for inspiration if you wish! Last but not least, cred where cred is due; the fences/walls were created after inspiration from Jonas Kramms fantastic examples and the usage of tan skeleton legs for the decorations around the windows was something similar I saw a while ago but I couldn't find that image so I'm not sure who came up with it in the first place. Please let me know if you are the person who made that and i will of course mention you both here and on Flickr! Thanks for watching and please let me know both what you might like and what you might not like so I can learn and improve!
