  1. Imperial Armada Layout

    Hi everyone, Not that long ago I posted my ship on Eurobricks. Now my layout is finished and just in time for Bricks am Meer this weekend. For more pictures visit my Flickr album. Feedback and questions are appreciated. Sander
  2. So, I'm trying to design a set of docks to add to my Winter Village, and also want to add a river that feeds through part of the town and into the docks, and I'm wondering, what are the best (preferably cost-effective) techniques to design water for rivers and docks? Does anyone have suggestions?
  3. Hi everyone In the past I used LEGO pneumatic tanks as water container for my models. Like this it is possible to build working LEGO fire trucks with 100% LEGO parts. However, there may grow fungus in the wet pneumatic tanks since there is always residual water in the tanks after draining them. Therefore, I decided to create custom water tanks with my 3D-Printer. It worked quite well, and I was able to build a 100ml tank with the dimensions 9x9x5 studs and pin holes: And it looks like this in action: Cheers FT
  4. MOC - Derelict House

    Based on visits to derelict buildings; not based on any building in particular.
  5. Bottled water delivery truck building instructions Parts list
  6. After a year of thought, weeks of work, and a failed debut at Brickworld Chicago 2017, I am proud to finally be able to share this creation. Inspired by M. C. Escher's "Waterfall", watch as a stream of crystals flow upstream and cascade back down. My ideas for this project began to swirl around in my head a couple weeks before Brickworld 2016. The idea of manipulating small particles in a GBC like fashion sounded like an interesting challenge, and a fountain or flowing water affect seemed like the best approach. While at the one of the stores in Chicago, I saw an open case of Trans-Blue Rock 1 x 1 Jewel 24 Facet. Obviously the logical conclusion was to go ahead and purchase about 4-5 cups of the stuff! The trickiest part of working with such as small element is avoiding ways for them to get stuck in the mechanisms. The elements that made the whole thing work were also the bane of its existence! Trial and error, and identifying pinch points was the key. The entire model is ran off of two Power Functions L-Motors, one at the base, and one on the 3rd ladder from the top. Each ladder is connected to each other through 40t gears, to ensure even transfer of power. I step away for one minute and look who I find fooling about in the fountain! Thanks for taking a look at my model, I hope you enjoyed it!
  7. [MOC] Modular City Park

    Hi all. This is my first time posting in the town forum. I just wanted to share a MOC I built for our local Lego show "BrickExpo" in late July 2016, which I only recently had the chance to photograph properly when it was part of a recent LUG collaborative display at the Bricks at Woden School show, and then again when I set it up at home a week or so back. I wanted to build a formal park that was in scale with the Modular buildings, with the aim of having a larger display piece that could be used in the LUG's collaborative layouts. I had already prototyped corner and side modules when LEGO announced the Fun in the Park set, and that set inspired me to proceed with it. So over the course of several months in early 2016 I built all the rest of the park modules. I realised later on in the build that I needed to provide wheelchair access for the new fig, so I turned a side entrance into a ramp and made it the focus of an "opening" scene for the new access ramp. I bought the Fun in the Park set on day one of release and had an entertaining time posing figures (I did use all of them from the set, but one is out of sight on the far side), and thought up a few more minifig scenes as well. The Park also gave me the chance to try some different techniques, especially with the trees, which I made from techniques I saw online and with some variations of my own. Jokingly I refer to it as "UCS Fun in the Park". In the following two overview shots taken at the show, one LUG member built the brick-built roads, and another built the multi-coloured row of town houses in the back. Various members contributed sets etc. Overview 1 Modular City Park Overview 1 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr Overview 2 Modular City Park Overview 2 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr The Opening of the access ramp Modular City Park 3 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr Close up of the Statue end of the Park - a tribute to our founders Modular City Park 4 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr I guess I am a romantic at heart...

  8. I wanted to create some different areas based on the four elements represented by the four main elves, I've mixed parts from all kinds of different sets to create these places. This one is the earth themed home for Farran the Earth Elf. I wanted it to be part cottage, part treehouse. It's mostly parts from The Elves Treetop Hideaway and the Ewok Village sets. I attached my waterfall cave alongside the treehouse I also made a fire themed volcano cave with a tall treehouse/tower neighbouring it. It's mostly made from a Lego Friends set that has a cabin and a waterfall. I kept the cabin and built the tower above it and changed the waterfall into a volcano. I've created a workshop for the Air Elf Aira in one section of the tower with a bedroom above it, an observing platform with a telescope above that and a turret room on the top. The webisodes show that Azari the fire elf is homeless and just crashes with the other elves, but I've given her a warm place to sleep inside the volcano. I kept the camp beds in the cabin for the humans to sleep in when they visit Elvendale. And here's some random pictures..
  9. Built for the 2017 Brickstory contest. I’ve been wanting to do some more pirate themed builds for a while now, and the Brickstory contest provided a great opportunity with its ‘Age of Piracy’ category. The island can split in half to reveal a path, cannon, and other details inside, and the winch holding the boat is fully functional. This paradise of a pirate island serves as the base of operations for Captain Hookey Hand and his crew. With everything from canons and lookout towers, to sun-bathing boats and planks to walk, the island is incredibly popular with his band of compatriots. Lots more pictures on Brickbuilt Thanks for looking, C&C welcome
  10. The Observer-Tree

    Hello fellow humans! Here is a build that i completed very early this year, after dedicating many, many hours to it over last year. When I was a kid, I always wanted to build a large tree house out of LEGO but never had the parts or the disposable income.. Now, I have both of those things, I thought it was time to get it on the drawing boards. I would have posted it heaps sooner, but these pics were taken for Bricks CULTURE magazine #6 and wanted to do the right thing by them and hold off until the next edition was out. As I'm still getting used to uploading images and yet to tweek the RAW ones to a usable file size, this is all i have for you to check out here.. Though if you'd like to check out some of the finer details and the rear side, please jump over to my Flickr account here and have a squiz! There is quite the philosophical story behind it all, but I'll leave that for the pages of BC. Thanks to Cristian Brunelli for the great photographic shots, as my camera, if you could call it that, wouldn't stand up to the task in the state of my studio. Oh yeah, just by the by, the chairlift, waterwheel and waterfalls all move thanks to the Power of a single XL PF Motor and a string of gearboxes.. And I'd be more than happy to prove it to you, if someone has some footage.. I was lucky enough to get these shots! haha! Anywho, Enjoy.
  11. Hi all, Here comes a micro build of a crusing yacht. I wanted to do something with very few bricks, like a 8 - 15 piece challenge. To present it, i wanted some brick build water in a "wave" formation, to give it some realism. Instruction pic included. enjoy :D Feel free to ask, comment etc... micro yacht by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr micro yacht instructions by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr
  12. Hello. Last weekend we had our major exhibition at the North of Portugal, PLUG Braga BRInCKa 2016. Me and my wife showed this LEGO aquarium, "As Sereias e a Cidade Perdida" ("The Mermaids and the Lost City"): Water (near 15l) of course, is not LEGO. All other parts are LEGO except some nuts I used: - 2 small M3 nuts inside the shell to force it to go down when air escapes (I'm also not sure if pneumatic tubes are LEGO or not, I got them at bricklink some time ago). Those 2 nuts could probably be replaced with LEGO magnets but I don't care much for purism. - near 140 M5 nuts inside the large green bricks at the bottom to increase weight and prevents all bricks from floating around (could use boat weight bricks, have enough for that but would take lots of space The air compressor is from Sariel - two pumps generate the curtain's bubbles, one pump is for the shell movement and the fourth pump is for the pyramid. There's also a Power Functions Light - one LED inside the pyramid and the other near the shell, behind the dolphin. The idea came after Paredes de Coura Fan Event, in June, where I attended Oton Ribic "Water" presentation. All those blue slopes came from Paredes de Coura and I had to do something with them. For the exhibition I used a few drops of a sodium hypochlorite solution to prevent algae and other micro-organisms to grow. So no real fish could be shown but I used a small Nemo electro-mechanical toy fish that swims a few seconds each time someone knocked the aquarium glass (sorry, forgot to record).

  13. [MOC] Watermill Assault

    Good morrow to you, Eurobricks! The present day I giveth thee a 378-piece model formulated off of a watermill from medieval times! It includeth three minifigures- two evil knights and a miller who eke worketh as a blacksmith. The setteth itself includeth an assortment of interactivity and functions! This is the exterior of the watermill. As thee can see, tis very fusty and worn, with much of its structure appearing through the outer stonework, and foliage of various sorts adorning the walls. The back of the model. Hither thee can see the outer defense which comprises of a minuscule catapult, and the second floor's blacksmith shop. Thee can eke see the mill wheel and a very-poorly guarded hatch of sorts. I ponder what 'tis hiding? Aye! The panel swings upward to reveal a rare and most precious chest holding the mill's treasure. Thither beest a spider looking to maketh its home within the dank cellar! Hither we eke see the gear system that is hath used to rotate the mill wheel. The activator resides at the apex of the tower aside o' the catapult. I asketh thee to giveth me any thoughts, comments, criticisms, and appraisal that thee wish to giveth! I wilt fain lend mine ear to it.
  14. Nordheim Docks

    This is the first module of a large collab build that Isaac and I are building for Brickfair, Virginia. We’ll be posting one new module a week. The warehouse has a full interior and working doors. I would like to claim UoP credits for the following: Landscape Design: snow and ice Hydrology: still water Anthropology: life in Mitgardia The docks of Nordheim are a busy and bustling place during the summer, but once winter arrives and the ice forms, things quiet down considerably. Still, ice fishing is a popular past time, and dock workers still inspect the warehouses to make sure all the goods are where they belong. More pictures on Brickbuilt C&C very much appreciated

  18. Solid Hull that floats?

    Hi everyone, I don't post much on here but I wanted to get some feedback on something that has been 'floating' in the back of my mind since I was a child. I'm a huge fan of the Lego pirate ships and all lego boats for that matter. Particularly the series of boats that float with the use of one solid plastic hull piece. In the beginning these hulls were rather small and have grown larger over the year; the "City Lines" cargo ship being the largest solid plastic hull piece made by Lego. Now I've been a long time fan of the grand lego ships since the Black Seas Barracuda and as a child I always wanted to be able to have the grand ship float along side me while swimming in our family pool. I know many lego builders would shun at having their lego get wet but Lego is a near indestructible toy and it would be fun I think! kids would get a kick out of it. So I was thinking of something similar to this: As you can see the hull would be a rather large solid plastic brown piece but compatible with Lego bricks. I have never seen anything accomplished with this and I may have to make a prototype myself. What does everyone think of this idea? Would you be interested in a solid lego galleon hull? Perhaps the float-able hulls could be sectioned into pieces thus allowing the creator to make the hull shorter or longer depending? I just think there could be a lot of fun with this if only it existed.
  19. Riverwatch Falls A watchtower protecting a bridge over a wild river, situated just above a small waterfall. Semaphore tower with signal engineers, signal fire and drawbridge included. Built as part of a Local Challenge for the Lands of Roawia. More images in the flickr album.
  20. Halixon had been deployed down to the ocean planet F10. The deployment shuttle dropped him onto the water surface on a Water Hovercraft. He'd use this to maneuver the vast ocean. Now, to find a small piece of land to set up a water pump... Top: Back: ------- Just a vehicle build. I would have built some water, but i don't quite have enough blue plates to set the hovercraft on. C & C welcome! Note: This is my first build in AG, so some helpful comments are appreciated.
  21. And I've finally caught up to my Flickr posts...
  22. Hi, This is my first MOC. Don't be to critical! All bricks courtesy of my wonderful girlfriend. M. Detail 1
  23. [M-B06] Sorn Supply/Science Station 28 Junali 3815 Lady Kianna, Engineer’ Log: Water, water everywhere. I have found a shallow slow moving current of Awesomnium flowing with the mineral rich waters of Sorn. The only land available is sharp small islands (rich with Awesomnium) but very difficult to build on. I have chosen a site above the current to build a platform supply and science/research station. Big Sal arrived as I was finished so I left him to set up his supplies and experiments while I went back to the supply ship for more stock items. One of the perks of this particular job is I get to be the first to test the M.A.N.T.I.S. RHIB 2000. With a large area for supplies and even larger super charged turbo fan engines made to deliver heavy supply loads in a quick amount of time, I returned to the base in time for a shocking sight. Big Sal had his experiments set up and things are……growing quickly….too quickly…I’m not sure I want to know what is in those two tanks on one of the platforms, and why is there a glowing spider sitting atop a vial of something?…… As I unload the supplies, Big Sal waves and heads up the ladder to the roof. I follow and immediately feel concerned……carrots are not supposed to look like that, there is large disturbingly green leafy things and a good portion of the metal I had used on the roof and equipment has turned the color of the Awesomnium (note to self…eat MREs this week even though they really are Made Rarely Edible). I suddenly remember I have forgotten something important back at the resupply ship and take the RHIB 2000 out to deep sea……empty cargo space with full throttle I can at least temporarily forget what I saw and what I will probably have to eat next week……. Hope you enjoyed B06 Sorn. C&C Welcome.
