  1. Hello everyone! Maybe it's too early, but let it happen. What do you think of the Speed Champions series in 2022? Do you think it will disappear or continue, or will it be under a different name? Anyway, personally, I think they will stay with us for a long time (after all, they have made specially new wheels for 2021). It seems to me that there is a good chance to see in 2022 in the SC series such cars: - BMW M8 (maybe GTE) - Pagani Zonda or Huayra - Ferrari - some F1 car - due to Toyota license can Toyota gr010 (hypercar) - maybe some cars from the DTM or VASC series Post comments about what you think.

    MOC: Mediterranean town square

    Hello users of EB! Here I present my latest build, a Mediterranean town square with a trio of intertwined buildings. A restaurant, a shop and various apartments fill the scene. I can't say its any one particular European style, more a hybrid mix of styles. Anyway onto the pics; They can also all be view on my flickr stream here Andy comments or queries about techniques are welcome. Regards!
  3. What do you think will be coming out of the Speed Champions series in 2021? Personally, I think there is a chance for something from IMSA. There may be such sets: Corvette C7.R (small set) Koenigsegg Jesco (small set) Porsche Taycan (small set) Toyota Ts050 Hybrid (double set) Aston Martin Vulcan or Vantage GTE (double set) And maybe something else with hypercar because of the WEC season 2020/2021

    [MOC] Micro city

    Hello! A year and a half ago, I saw somewhere on Flickr a building assembled on something like that. The idea came up to assemble an entire city from such buildings. At first standart basis were used, then doubled and quadruplet, and sometimes more. During this time two cities were built. I will share renders for those who are intrested. First city Original here I will continue to add buildings in the comments. Thank you for attention :)

    Vehicles in my town: updates

    Hello people! This summer I've updated several MOC vehicles in my town. Hope you'll enjoy! first, the taxi: now converted to 6-wide and a few more realistic touches; The TV van has been updated too; Tow truck totally rebuilt; more realistic look for the hot rod; total rebult for the ambulance too; Mail delivery van converted in a 3-wheeled van (like an Ape Piaggio) so it can move with more agilty into narrow streets; and finally the car transported, with updated mechanism: Hope you liked these vehicles and if you want to see more check my flickt gallery: Salvatore | Flickr

    [MOC] Microscale Speedboat

    Racing Speedboat microscale vignette.The "sea" part is made in a way that the hull of the speedboat seems submerged as in reality.It contains 235 pieces and throws a lot of water...I also made an alternative front end in parts designer that can be made if you chop the ball of a 4131 party hat and glue it to the cone and one with a 24482 spear that you can easily make if you dont like the front part to be only the 2x2x2 cone.Enjoy and comment if you like it. https://www.bricklink.com/v3/studio/design.page?idModel=245825

    [MOC+WIP] Modular micro castle

    Hello! I'm opening a new topic. I'm slowly running out of ideas for my microcity. Now a new direction - is the modular micro castle. The base is still the same - 16x16 plate. Thanks for attention! I will be glad to receive your comments :) Fortress wall with a main gate, a rising bridge and a traditional moat :)
  12. Welcome to my Brick World and welcome to the City of Brickgate! A project from Germany... Since August 2020, I've been working on a large and, most importantly, realistic LEGO city whose progress you can follow several times a week on my YT Channel. The feedback of my community plays a big role Here I show you some current pictures of my work. There are more than 100,000 bricks on the table so far and there will be many more to come. Also extensions of the area are already planned. Big highlight is the station, which takes an area of 10 plates with 48x48 studs each, is completely modular and is built on three levels. In addition, there is also the old city wall and an old town is also planned... In addition, the entire project will also be gradually illuminated. You can also visit YT and leave a subscription, if you always want to see the latest from Brickgate and Brick World! City Tour from May 2021: Current pictures from today:
  13. Hi everyone! I´m happy that I can present my newest creation! It´s the next piece of my minifig scaled RC collection. This time I decided to build a Flixbus. After Flixbus bought the rivalry Eurolines, it became maybe the cheapest way for poor students from Hungary (or not only from Hungary) to travel across Europe. At least for me it was the perfect method at that time! Hope you like it! Unfortunately the last time I travelled somewhere by a Flixbus was in August 2019. But hopefully it will change in the near future! Flixbus came often in the middle of the night, just as the Knight Bus did in Harry Potter. That´s why it stands on the destination screen Before you start reading about the boring technical facts and irritating things during the building period, please watch the video! It took approx 4 months long to build the bus. It´s not the first tiny RC I build. Despite of it I can´t say it didn´t challenge me. Yes, I´m speaking about the lettering and arrows on the sides. Maybe you still remember of the Milka Truck. That lettering has only vertical or horizontal building techniques. That´s why it was possible to do the lettering on each side only 1 stud deep. It was important, because it allowed to put the battery box (the biggest and most inflexible element) between the two walls and staying with the width in 6 studs at the same time. But “FLIXBUS” is more difficult. It is also not always possible to have stud connections (for example letter X, or the diagonal arrows). In this case the letters have to have inside some bigger parts on them, which simply doesn’t allow them to fall out. It means it stays only a two-stud wide space in the middle. That’s enough for the technic chassis, but not for the batteries. And also not for the motors… So only the half of the lengths stayed for the functional parts. For the steering and propulsion I stole the method from the Milka truck (with vertical motors), where they´ve already proven, that they work really well. The only possible (long enough) space for the battery box was at the back. Fortunately right above the driven wheels. They need the weight on them to increase the friction between the tires and the street. Another positive feature is, that the Sbrick is small enough to be above the letters, so I didn´t have to make the whole bus longer. Another part of the challenge was to create the diagonal white lines on the front. There was almost nothing inside, which they could be attached to. The reason is, that the moving parts of the steering are there, so it´s simply impossible to put there any other parts without disablement of the steering. Other reason is, that the upside-down parts of the front have already used the space there. At the end I decided to use the rubber bands, without being irritated by the fact, that it´s possible to see them outside, too. The bus has three axles. The third one is again an axle with some kind of fake suspension. It is just hanging there and doesn´t hold anything, so in theory it can never happen, that the driven wheels leave the ground. Please notice the detail that there are brackets instead of plates on the top of the third mudguards. It creates a bit bigger space in the mudguard for the wheels with the fake suspension. It means, that the bus can win against bigger obstructions. All in all I really enjoyed working on the bus. Hope you like the result, too! Thanks for watching and reading! Feel free to visit my Photostream on Flickr, to see some of my other creations: https://www.flickr.com/photos/gabor_horvath/
  14. Finally got this set built, and tried to mod it to fit minifigs, I didn't really do any designing beforehand. Just a quick build, transparent 1x2 plates help fitting the windows together, and had to add a space for the figure helm/hairpiece to fit, while trying to maintain the shape and colors, also added turn signals and steering wheel. As for the race cars/karts, it was very simple mod of moving the nose 1 stud forward and adding a steering wheel, really got some Town vibes. Orginal set : Mod for minifigs:

    MOC: Bank

    Hello all. I've just recently completed a new bank as its been over a decade since my last one https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/5873042040/in/dateposted-public/ - hopefully it shows I've improved - at least in my photography skills! Its still of an art-deco style like the former but with some more geometric touches and a sharper finish. It was inspired by the Bank of Ireland building in Belfast which was built in the late 1920s and still stands today; I've also included an interior for the ground floor which is not based on any bank interior in particular as the material from that time is very hard to come by for a smaller bank. There is an elevator, patterned floor, teller booths and a relief on the wall to capture the period. As usual you can find them on my flickr stream here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/ Regards!

    [MOC] Lidl Grocery Store

    Hi everyone! What you can see on the pictures is the end of a story, which began in 2017. At that time I studied on a university in Hungary. All in all that was a horrible time, but it had also some advantages. One of them was, that in Hungary it is really easy to find a job as a student. The companies need always people, and of course the students need always money. That’s why there is a very good system there for finding a job or finding employees. In my current place in Austria, the marketplace for jobs is completely different. As far as I experienced, people don´t need so much money and companies also don´t really need employees. That´s strange… (Maybe it´s necessary to add, that these jobs I´m speaking about - in both countries -, are bad jobs, like cleaning, working on the fields, factory jobs, etc. So jobs you can calmly do parallel to the university and don´t need your whole brain capacity.) It doesn´t matter. Much more important is the story. Because of the facts above I could try during the school years more that 15 different workplaces. Including better ones, like being a guide in a very old monastery. And including Lidl. Actually Lidl was a better one, too! It was also interesting. So I decided to build an exact model of it. I started to build the model immediately, but after that a lot of things happened. I went to Germany for a year, after that I came to Austria, I always found something more interesting to build, etc. So the model was always at the background. But now, finally it became ready! Before I started working in Lidl I had to read the product placing strategy. This is something you never forget. That´s why the interior is completely detailed. Because of scale reasons it has not so many things in it, as a real store, but the different groups of products are exactly there, where they have to be. After the entrance there are chips and stuff like that, after them the fresh things, like bakery products and vegetables. At the back there is the non-food part and the refrigerators (mopro). On the way back to the cashdesks are the drinks for example. Notice the two different sizes of the pallets. The 3x4 stud variation is the Euro pallet, the other one which´ size is the half of the Euro pallet is the Düsseldorf pallet. It is also very important in Lidl. It was also said to me, that there are only shopping carts and no baskets, because the parents always allowed the kids to sit in the baskets. And it´s not hygienic. Well, the kids are sitting in the shopping carts as well. And not on the seat, actually in the cart. Another things you never forget are also on the model. For example a student, who is cleaning the floor with a pushbroom. In Lidl it is really taught you, ho you have to use the pushbroom. Let´s see what a customer doesn´t see. The warehouse and the offices. The machine near the garage door is for the empty paper boxes. It presses them, you put cables aroud them to keep it together and after that you can bring the package out on a pallet. That´s a cool thing. Which is not cool is that there are no place in the warehouse. If you want to bring out pallet “A”, you often have to bring out pallet “B”, “C” and “D” before. After that you can bring out pallet “A”. After that you have to bring back pallet “B”, “C” and “D”. After that you can start to fill the shelves from pallet “A”. That is also a mission impossible scene about it in the warehouse with a pallet jack and an employee. The most interesting thing outside is maybe the big Lidl sign. It contains more that 100 parts and is of course completely without glue and stickers! You can read the word “Lidl” on both sides. Another thing is the parking spot for disabled people, which I posted a bit earlier. Here you can find details about that. What I like on the building is the roof. I guess it turned out great with the angles. The different chimneys and the parts of the ventillation systems are also designed after the real ones. Hope you like the model! Thanks for watching and reading! You can find more MOCs from me on my Flickr page!

    RES-Q sets reimagined

    The 1998 Res-Q theme was one of my favorite line of sets growing up. Just for fun I decided to rebuild the sets digitally and imagine how they would look nowadays. I startet with the four smaller sets. What do you think? Would you like to see more sets? Do you think it would be realistic for TLG to recreate a theme like RES-Q nowadays? Your feedback and ideas are always welcome. 6451: Res-Q Jet-Ski The smallest set of the line. I didn't put too much work into this and just redid 30567: Police Water Scooter in RES-Q colors. 6431: Road Rescue The 1998 version was too simple in my opinion. I added an enclosed body to the SUV so all the tools could be transported. The SUV seats two minifigs. 6445: Emergency Evac I had so much fun with this set playing with the rope and the ambulance. I tried to keep the beefy looking off-road truck look and the possibility to load a stretcher in the back as well es the little trailer. 6451: River Response I changed the little vehicle a lot. Now it's an atv seating two minifigs. I kept the shape of the boat but added a proper cabin.
  19. Hi everyone! It happened to me earlier as well, that I worked on a part of a MOC so much, as on the MOC. In such a case this part deserves an own picture! So here it is, the parking spot for disabled people. Downtowns are problematic places. At the city where I spent most of my time during the school years (Győr, Hungary), these spots were only signed by a road sign. But it was often not clear, which spot, or how many spots are actually for disabled people. And the downtown has in general too many sings with too many information on them. So it happened often, that people parked their cars not on purpose there. A few years ago the city decided to paint the whole spots blue to make it easier to realise them. It looks really cool! So I decided I recreate it with Lego bricks. I build the first version in 2018 I guess. I didn´t published it because it looked like a man sitting on a toilet and not on a wheelchair. A few month later I went back to the model and changed it a bit. A few month ago I could travel back to Hungary despite of the COVID-rules. And I took the BIG Brother picture. Hope you like it! The MOC in which it is will come a bit later! Thank for watching!

    [MOC] Apartment building of the future

    For a contest last year, I created a 'construction of the future'. I built the 'apartment building of the future'. I didn't win anything of course, but I'm quite happy with the result, so I thought I share some pictures here. The building This 'building of the future' consists of several economical tiny houses stacked on top of each other. Each tiny house is equipped with a kitchen, shower, toilet, elevated bed and dining area. Each tiny house has a balcony, suited for enjoying the sunshine of growing your own vegetables. The lower two floors house a bar, where locals are enjoying a drink and a performance by an upstart local band. The building is powered by solar panels and a windmill on the roof. Transport in the future is by way of bike, flying car or personal jetpack and mail is delivered by drones. This means there is no need for stairs As the original design was far too big to build in real life (over 7000 pieces and over 1 meter tall), I have also created a somewhat downscaled version and made it compatible with the modular building format. This version can be found on Rebrickable: Apartment of the future modular. Pictures And now for some pictures: And more in the 'spoiler' section: Enjoy!
  23. This is my creation for Brickstory 2017 contest, for the "Age of Piracy" category. This is my biggest creation so far.. and it came with a theme that I love.. Pirates!! This inspiration came from one of my favorites series.. Black sails!!! :D And because i didn't like the end of Vane.. I decide to change it a little bit!! And the story starts..: Year: 1715 Place: Nassau Mission: Free Vane and burn Nassau to the ground! Vane is shuttled to the town square of Nassau where he will be executed. Bones and those loyal to him join the crowd, intent on a desperate rescue attempt. However, Vane makes eye contact with Billy and gives him a silent order to stand down.. But Captain Flint has a different opinion than the movie series.. Free Vane and kill them all!!! Nassau it's ours again!!! I hoped you like my creation! C&C are welcome!! :D

    MOC: Village Grocers

    Hello all! I've made my own grocery store after being inspired by the real Lego modular version and also small display holiday village models that are usually exaggerated in colours/shapes/signage and more. In this case I chose not to light it but in the future maybe! I've tried a couple of techniques that were new to me here, such as the windows made up of trans plates and also a deep sloped roof. Anyway, a couple of pictures this time; They can also be viewed at different resolution and all my other creations on my flickr page here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/ Cheers!

    [MOC] The Diamond Theatre

    Hi Everyone, I’ve been a member here for a while, but this is my first post. I thought I would share my first MOC modular building: The Diamond Theatre. I’ve always loved the modular buildings, and I started to create one when I discovered Lego Digital Designer a while back (this project has taken quite a few years!). I wanted to try to build something a little different, but which also kept the nature and character of the modular buildings, so I decided on three rules to try to follow. First, I’ve seen loads of amazing MOC modular buildings here on the forum with great colour schemes, but that skill level is rather beyond my capabilities, so I decided to try a building with a colour scheme similar to real life structures. I remember visiting Legoland (Billund) as a kid and seeing the London section, so I wanted my modular building to loosely replicate the Legoland large-scale “landmark” replica buildings. Second, I wanted to use a 48x48 baseplate as I felt it would provide more space and scope for details to capture the architectural features of a typical old London theatre; grandiose exteriors, cramped staff spaces, (very!) outdated toilets, and a dimensionally (vertically) imposing auditorium. Having a larger footprint also meant a better chance to avoid some of the building experience criticisms of some modular buildings (such as the first and second floors of the Grand Emporium being very similar/repetitive). Third, I wanted to find a way to include all the Lego themes I loved in my childhood. I came up with the idea of a “modular insert” section inside the modular building which could be used to recreate any past (or current!) Lego theme which interested any potential builder. In part, this led me towards building a theatre as the stage would be the ideal modular section to achieve this. I designed a classic castle stage set, a classic pirates stage set, and a stage where The Beatles are performing (as a nod to the Yellow Submarine set, although I understand this is artistic license given the live performance history of The Beatles!). Of course, other modular stage sets such as classic space, or perhaps a set replicating a famous real-life musical could also be designed as the “modular insert”. A sort of model-within-a-model. I really have no idea whether I made the most of these three ideas, but it was really fun to try (albeit completely digitally). I’ve put some captions about each of the images below, but any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks for looking, and thanks very much to all those who build, maintain, and develop Bricklink Studio – it’s a great free program and given this project started in the old Lego Digital Designer, I’m grateful I was able to continue it after support for Lego Digital Designer was ended. Anyway, enough talking!... (Please click for larger photos) THE COMPLETE BUILDING: The design is loosely based on London’s Piccadilly Theatre, which I focused on as I wanted to see if I could create a curved façade. I also used the building’s colours as a reference. Also, I tried to make the street furniture as “Londonesque” as possible – the bollards, signpost, postbox, and bicycle: THE GROUND FLOOR: The gap behind the stage area is for the “modular insert” section(s). I’m not experienced enough with Bricklink Studio to know how to show the inside details, so I simply hid some of the bricks and rendered the model again to show areas of the inside. Above is the ticket desk/booths, the stall to purchase programmes, entrance to the auditorium, and the stairs. Below is a close up of the ticket desk/booths. The above image is the dressing room and the rear access to the ticket desk/booths. Below is the view of the auditorium and the stage (with the rear wall “blank” installed, rather than a “modular insert” stage set). THE FIRST FLOOR: The first floor features a brick-built advertisement, the upper circle (though not really a "circle"!), box seats, the patron’s bar, toilet, catwalk/bridge, spotlight platform, some old promotional posters (a nod to the Palace Cinema), a chandelier (a nod to the Grand Emporium), and an award display. The above view shows the walkway, upper “circle”, spotlight platform, box seats, and patron’s bar. Below is a view of the catwalk/bridge from underneath also showing the stage lights. The above view is from the front just above the stairs on the ground floor showing the entrance to the upper "circle", the bar tables, and the award display. Below is the area in front of the bar showing the old promotional posters (the nod to the Palace Cinema). Another image below of the patron’s bar, this time from the side above the stairs, showing the position of the chandelier (a nod to the Grand Emporium) and the entrance to the box seats. The two below images show the details of the patron’s bar and the chandelier: Below is the old-fashioned toilet in the front corner of the first floor: THE ROOF: The access doors on the left in the above image don’t lead anywhere, it just seemed to be a feature on the rooves of a lot of older London buildings, so I included them as an additional detail to make the roof a little more interesting to look at and build. There is also space for a 2x6 counterweight brick to be added should it be required if I ever do build the model in real bricks. THE “MODULAR INSERTS”: The first image below shows the ground and first floors stacked together, the gap in the rear wall into which the “modular inserts” can be switched in and out, and some exposed detail of the catwalk/bridge of the first floor. The second image is of the very basic wall “blank” which can be installed to create an empty stage. Each of the modular inserts is built upon a 10x16 stud base. First is the classic pirates insert/stage: I also made a classic castle modular insert/stage (my apologies if I have a mix of shields here!): There is also a Beatles modular insert (a nod to the Yellow Submarine set). I took a little bit of artistic license here of course as obviously The Beatles hardly performed live in their later years, and I also had to swap George’s hair as I couldn’t find the 18858 part used in the Yellow Submarine set: Below is the detail of the piano. Again, there’s some artistic license here as this piano design is from more recent shows Paul has done, but I liked the art design on the piano, so I thought including it would make for a nice detail: THE MINIFIGURES: Below are the minifigures which I would include if this were a real set. The first image is of the theatre staff. Two ticket sales/bar managers and a stage technician: Next are the patrons (these aren’t chosen specifically for any reason): Then the actors from each of the sets; classic castle and classic pirates: And, of course, Ringo George, Paul, and John (sorry for the render not being the best): CUSTOM PRINTED PARTS: At first, I didn’t want to create a modular building which would need any custom parts – be it shape, colour, or printing. I planned this as I believed it would be best should I ever get the chance to actually make the building from real bricks. However, as I developed it, I thought some custom printed tiles would actually add a lot to the character of the whole project, so I changed my rule. I did however make sure I would only use tiles and only the known colours in which those tiles have been produced (I guess these could be stickers if needed, but I figured printings would be better). I used Adobe Illustrator and the Part Designer in Bricklink Studio to create the custom prints/tiles. Below is the complete set of custom printed tiles that would be required: Finally, an image of the whole building from above: I guess the only other things to mention are that all the bricks and parts are available in the colours used (with the only exceptions being the custom printed tiles mentioned above), and that all connections are “legal” Lego building techniques. All moving parts are completely functional, and I ran a stability check in Bricklink Studio which showed it was very solid. Excluding the minifigures, the total parts count is 5227. There are of course a few details which I’m sure better and more experienced builders could improve, and there are a few untidy areas here and there. Anyway, any comments would be much appreciated. Thanks!
