  1. This is a MOC I designed during spring 2020 and originally published in the Bricks in Space Facebook group (original post) and on the Bricksin.space web page, but I want to publish it here as well. Inspired by all great 1:110 scaled space moc's in the Bricks in space group, I realized that there were no accurate scale model of the Space Shuttle's Launch Complex 39 so I decided to give it a try myself. During my research I found that there is basically no construction blueprints published for the Launch complex, making scale modeling very hard, but after much searching I managed to track down a demolision plan which accurately described the complex open frame structure and it measures. These plans gave me the opportunity to model the MOC with all major beams in the right place and get the model accurate in scale down to (most of the time) +/- one stud. To make sure that there was a Shuttle, MLP and crawler available to use together with the launch complex, the MOC is designed to match KingsKnight's excelent 1:110 scale Space shuttle and Eiffelman's Crawler transporter and Mobile Launch Platform. Together the four models form a nice display with almost 20000 pieces. About the MOC I’ve been aiming at the look the complex had around 1980 concerning colours and equipment level. The model consists of the Fixed Service Structure, the Rotating Service Structure, The WSC Tower and 9099 building, the Northern Pipe Bridge and the East access towers. Everything is placed on a base representing the top of the launch pad and flame trench. The FSS is inspired by Nathan Readioff's LUT and the Hammerhead crane on top is his design, which he kindly let me use in this model. The RSS was a really complicated thing to design. The open frame structure is hard to do in Lego and right now there is some weak spots in the design that must be resolved, especially the connection of the support legs and the main structure. There are a few angels there which is not easily handled with LEGO. But overall, I’m quite happy with the design, even if all the catwalks and staircases were driving me crazy for a while. The RSS will rotate around the hinging column just as it did in real life. This is still a work in progress. Whenever I get some time, I plan for doing two additional versions of this MOC. One 1990's version which will be gray and the orbiter weather protection system, hurricane lock, and other modifications, and one 2000's version without the hammerhead crane. We'll see when those will be ready. More pictures, .io-files and instructions can be found on the Bricksin.space web page. I hope you like this model. Part count: 13672 bricks, 576 lots. Width: 92 cm, 36.2 inch, 115 studs Length: 115.2 cm, 45.4 inch, 144 studs Height: 97.8 cm, 38.5 inch, 122.2 studs

    [MOC] C&O K4 2-8-4 #2716

    Hey guys! I have a new MOC to share. This was a commissioned build that will be turned into a full kit for bricktraindepot.com. Will be doing additional full kits for Nickel Plate #765 and Pere Marquette #1225 as well. Pre-orders for all three kits will open on September 1st! If you purchase the C&O kit, $100 will be donated to Kentucky Steam to help with the restoration of #2716. Anyways, about the engine. The Chesapeake and Ohio Railway's K-4 class were a group of ninety 2-8-4 steam locomotives purchased during and shortly after World War II. Unlike many other railroads in the United States, the C&O chose to nickname this class "Kanawha", after the river in West Virginia, rather than "Berkshire", after the region in New England. During the 1940s, the C&O K-4's were being built to haul heavy freight services and were used mostly for high speed freight and passenger services throughout the north-eastern regions of the United States and part of Ontario, Canada by the Pere Marquette Railway. C&O Class K-4s were one of the few recognizable 2-8-4 (Berkshires) classes in North America along with the Pere Marquette Class N (road numbers 1201-1239), and Nickel Plate Road Class S (road numbers 715-779). Both the PM Class N and NKP Class S were manufactured by the Lima Locomotive Works in Lima, Ohio. NKP 779 was the last standard-gauge Berkshire to be built in the world, and the last steam locomotive built by Lima Locomotive Works. My model features 2x L motors in the boiler with custom battery box in the tender and all specialty wire custom finished, 3D printed XL drivers, BrickTracks wheel in roller bearings, custom side rods by TrainedBricks, and decals by OkBrickWorks. I've finished the physical build and have been doing testing while waiting for OKBrickWorks to print my decals and wheels. Hope you enjoy the renders for now. More pictures will be coming soon! Left Front by Jeffinslaw, on Flickr Right Front by Jeffinslaw, on Flickr Getting close! by Jeffinslaw, on Flickr Additionally, be on the lookout for other train cars from BTD such as the AAR 50 ton hopper in C&O livery as well as an update to our TOFC to include a C&O flat car and some Railway Express Agency trailers. Let me know that you guys think! -Jeffinslaw

    The Car Wash

    Hi! I´m Bricky_Brick and new on EB hope I have chosen the right forum, if not, I would appreciate it if someone instructed me. I wanted to introduce you to this model that I have shared in Legoideas and I think and I hope you like it. I leave the link here. receive a warm greeting https://ideas.lego.com/projects/8999c95a-f144-4dce-9e69-651ae3b5f9bb?fbclid=IwAR0PpF43ywb6lLpOjMZQawWK_TaO49RKp7HK7I7vdlKGBqsL4JF1eOfsii8

    [MOC] Castle of Lord Afol

    Hi All! I'd like to share with you my latest take on the Castle theme. It's called Castle of Lord Afol and the Black Knights. I tried to keep it classic in general appearance, modern in detail, playable and sturdy. The latter features are yet to be proven, as it's still only a digital MOC While it may look a bit modest compared to some contemporary MOCs, it is so for a reason - it contains "only" 3000 pieces, which is a limit for Lego Ideas entries. And while some of the MOCs around boast insane shapes, this one is quite solid and, despite the name, I think it could be built without a big problem by a 10-year-old with some practice with Lego. Tell me what you think about it and if you like it, please comment and support this project also on Lego Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/f588abaa-4dab-4a56-b7bc-a7e38d018711 Enjoy!

    The Big Mystery WIP

    Tall Black Tower WIP by Jip Kempers, on Flickr So yesterday I started uploading my latest WIP Project to its own Flickr Album I decided to upload every day or two depending how fast it progresses to get some feedback and tips while I build instead of having to alter a thousand things in the end. Which’ll probably still occur lol! I also decided to make a little guessing game of what it will be and to spice it up a bit I upped the ante by asking what the full title of the finalized project will be. (I have it in my head since brick one) Winner will get a nice memento once the project is finished, and the rules are in the descriptions of today’s upload and if you don’t have a Flickr account you can send me a pm here or on the LowLug forum. C&c welcome, wanted, needed!
  6. Hi everyone, I'm Arthur, but my friends generally call me Thur. I'm a 38 year Dutch guy, married and father of 2 (boy and girl). Since my son reached the age of 4 a few months ago, his interest switched from Duplo to Lego and specifically City. He might me a bit stimulated by his dad ?. This re-ignited a long lost love for Lego within me, something many of you will recognise. In daily life I'm a purchasing manager for a wholesale group in beverages. I love to practice speed cycling to empty my head and keep my body in shape. I've become member of this forum to fuel the fire in me and learn more on to makee nice Lego buildings and cities. I'd love to make a nice city in the near future and hope to instill the love for Lego in my son and daughter ? I haven't got much experience in building MOC's, as a kid I was a real instructions builder. So I've got a long way to go to create buildings similar to the ones I see around. I'd love to go on that journey with some of you! Greets from the Netherlands! Thur
  7. This is my very own Tantive IV Main Corridor with Airlock Doorway MOC built of LEGO bricks: Served as an Alderaanian Diplomatic Cruiser, the CR90 Corvette TANTIVE IV played a central role in the events at the beginning of the Galactic Civil War, serving as Princess Leia Organa's personal starship in the leadup to the Battle of Yavin ... Tantive IV Main Corridor features the iconic round shape design for the walls, including very accurate wall-cubes and the iconic shaped side columns, as well as a smoothly sliding Airlock Doorway, that reveals an indicated Imperial Hallway behind to recreate the Borading Assault by using a pretty clever technique. The Hinge-mechanism allows you to get better access to the Corridor, and serves as a switch, so you can either close the Corridor, or open it which makes it easier to take shots of scenes with minifigures and reenact moments from Star Wars: A New Hope or Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. The entire build is extremly sturdy which allows you to grab the whole build without falling apart, and every detail is securely locked in place. You can follow me on flickr or take a look at more Star Wars MOCs of mine: https://www.flickr.com/photos/the-creatorr/ What do you guys think?

    Inspirational Modular and Castle MOCs

    Hey guys, I decided to create this topic and the main idea came from this and this post (so special thanks to @danth and @Digger of Bricks!). I would like to highlight three things before I start to post inspirational MOCs: I’ll post three staff picks everyday! Please feel free to post your favorite MOCs! Have fun admiring and taking inspiration from those great MOCs Top three MOC’s IMO in Baroque architecture: 1. This incredible Baroque Church by @Jellyeater! 2. This amazingly detailed MOC by @pj_bosman! 3. This greatly shaped modular by @cimddwc! Here are the three best Baroque MOC’s IMO! What do you think about them? Would you buy modulars like those if TLG made? Here are the Steampunk ones: 1. This incredible layout made together by @castor-troy and @domino39 (they also made one MOD of the PR and the MS and two MOD’s of the CC included in this layout. But they look so different that they are more MOC then MOD). EB topic here and Flickr albums with more photos here, here, here and here. 2. These great Steampunk modulars by @adde51! 3. These very interesting modulars by @Zilmrud who as well made great MOD’s of the PC and the BB! Here are the three most gorgeous Steampunk MOC’s IMO! What do you think of them? Would you buy modulars like those if TLG ever made?

    Ginetta Akula

    Sometimes all the pieces seem to fall into place...I wouldn't know, this was another brain-bending build. The interior is mostly hollow for now, and I need to nudge some parts into place, but it's 99% done. I think only a few stickers would be needed; vents on the sloped nose, headlights, and the Ginetta logos. Ginetta Akula by Henchmen4Hire, on Flickr
  10. Who are some of your favorite train/locomotive AFOL builders, and what are your favorite creations of theirs? Anything and everything relating to trains amongst fan creations and builders can be discussed here, including Locomotives, Railcars, Trolleys, Monorails, Train-centric Architecture, LEGO Ideas Projects, Techniques and whatever else that may fit within the context of this subforum!
  11. Navy Cannon Transformer Mech. This is a multiple transformer which can transform into multiple forms (Cannon combat car, human type robot, antitank gun and so on).
  12. I designed a Lego Space Shuttle to scale with the recent Lego Saturn V set. Since I get this question a lot, it is more proportionally correct than the 10231 and 10213 Shuttle, and is also accurately scaled to the Saturn V :) I posted a version of it on here before, but this one has been adjusted and finally submitted it to Lego Ideas. Please share with friends and sign up and support if you like it! Click to see more images and support if you like it! Lego Ideas - NASA Space Shuttle (Saturn V Scale)
  13. This is a theme inspired by LEGO's decision to create Stranger Things LEGO which is probably their most mature (age-wise) theme ever! This topic is for discussing what other more AFOL/adult oriented themes you wish/hope/want LEGO will make. We can also share any customs/MOCs based on more mature themes that we think would make great sets, like Game of Thrones or the Marvel Netflix shows. Or any TV and movies. This is more specifically geared toward ideas based on shows and movies that are rated TV-14/PG-13/15(UK)/R-Rated and above
  14. This shows an office in the early 80s where the traditional Christmas party has just started! You can see more of my MOCs on my Instagram - http://instagram.com/legobyjalex
  15. Hello my name is Andrew! I am a collector and HUGE FAN of LEGO! Recently I started my AFOL YouTube channel where I create animated stop motion LEGO reviews! Due to the law of COPPA it is now very difficult to attract new viewers. I would like to find my audience who will inspire me to my work, give good advice and just good friends! These are links to my best videos, what do you think of this? LEGO Marvel - Hulk Helicopter Rescue Stop-Motion Review LEGO Overwatch - Junkrat & Roadhog Stop-Motion Review I will be very happy if you follow me on YouTube if you liked my work! Thank You! :3
  16. Hi All, Long time collecter, first time poster from Geelong Australia. I've recently begun collecting Lego again as an AFOL (with my kids as the excuse!).. At the moment i'm mad about Lego City Trains, and started the collection with 60197 and 60198. Hoping that lego will bring out some new models soon. I've also setup a new track at home in the dedicated lego room.. And sometimes I even let the kids play too. I'm currently collecting track, so i can build an outdoor layout. Anyway, below is a vid of my 60197 taking it's first spin on the home layout. Cheers Dave.

    [MOC]: Lifeguard's Shack

    Hi everyone! Dedicated to all those who's looking forward to meet summer! :) I'm not that great in MOCing, but I'm really happy how this thing turned out and I'll be more than happy to hear your thoughts and suggestions on this little build. (it's 540 pieces). If you like how Lifeguard's Shack looks you may also find it on Lego Ideas website :) https://ideas.lego.com/projects/93574c09-16cd-4076-98c1-996224fa7e9c
  18. While browsing around Pinterest the other day, I came across this one amazing microscale city skyline creation by Instagram user Jeff Friesen (a.k.a. jeff_works), who has build a few other micro cityscape MOCs which are all just as extraordinary. Instagram seems like the only place he has posted his work, and, since I've never browsed around Instagram for MOCs before, I started searching around the site via some the hashtags attached to his posts. Unfortunately, I really couldn't find anything at all, since many of the posts under the hashtags mostly consisted of minifigure photography. So, does anyone here know of some great and/or noteworthy fan builders who only post their work on Instagram?

    Big fan of Lego ninjago movie

    I think the Lego ninjago movie is pretty good for its designs. The story is meh and I didn't really care for the father and sin aspect of it.
  20. The Castle of Captain Sabertooth is our contribution to a larger Captain Sabertooth (Kaptein Sabeltann) layout built by Scandinavian AFOLs. The whole layout will be on display at LEGO World Copenhagen, Denmark next year. Illuminated using the Brickstuff lighting system, which can be seen in the YouTube video below.

    [MOC] Southern Pacific 4-10-2

    The 4-10-2 wheel arrangement, often referred to as the Southern Pacific for the railroad which put it to use most successfully, was a unique design that utilized three-cylinders instead of the traditional two. In terms of steam locomotive evolution, it followed the 2-10-2 Santa Fe but the American Locomotive Company's (Alco) desire to advance three-cylinder technology proved somewhat problematic, at least for the Union Pacific (which referred to its roster as "Overlands" for its Overland Route main line). The SP on the other hand found their fleet quite useful and reliable in regular service and continued to use them for nearly 30 years until diesels finally took over. Hey guys! I wanted to share my completed model of Southern Pacific's 4-10-2 steam engine. I designed this model myself taking inspiration from brass models of the engine and techniques from various builders here on EB and Flickr. This model took me several months to design, build, and test but it is finally completed! The best part? You can purchase your own set of instructions to build the same model! Yes, that's right. Have all of those amazing BMR rolling stock and maybe one or two of my SP & UP PFE cars but no engine to pull it? Well now you can build an expertly modeled steam engine that will fit in with your rolling stock perfectly. Instructions can be purchased here: https://www.bricktraindepot.com/product-page/southern-pacific-4-10-2 The model is powered by two XL PF motors, and a AAA battery box in the tender. An SBrick is housed in the tender as well. Features side rods by @zephyr1934. This engine can haul a LOT of rolling stock. Was going to test with all 45 of my train cars here soon but I am positive it will work exceptionally well. Let's get on to some pictures!

  22. 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:
  23. This is my latest MOC! The idea for this creation simply came from memories when I was a kid (the 80s) and the exciting moment when my family came home with a brand new TV. The design of this room however is meant to be from the 70s and is mostly made up in my mind, with the help of some reference photos to get the right 70s feeling. Can you recognize what painting I have tried to recreate on the wall? You can see more of my MOCs on my Instagram.
