  1. Hi everyone! This is my first MOC post, and second post to Eurobricks after my welcome post. I was inspired to make this train from an image on Google of a "CRRC Dalian CKD7B" Chinese locomotive. Apparently these were designed specifically for use in Myanmar, and are very difficult to find any photos of them in the wild! As said in the title, this was inspired by the locomotive- the proportions are a little off! I'm glad with how it came out. Original: http://www.dloco.com/LISTS/product/_MAINPAGE/EProducts/default3.aspx?id=1118 Glad to hear thoughts and comments! Matt

    Fresh Fish!

    My 8th entry into the CCC XIV, for the Traveling Salesman category. I’ve wanted to try an Asian themed build for quite some time now, and this category seemed a great opportunity to finally actually do it. I’m very pleased with how this build turned out, though there were definitely some challenging parts. It was inspired by several of Disco’s excellent Asian builds. A friendly fish vendor peddles his wares on a busy street. See more pictures on Brickbuilt Thanks for looking, C&C welcome
  3. Hey all! For round 3 of The Tourney, I had to redesign a castle set, and I went for set 6089. Here's my version: TT17 R3: Stone Tower Bridge TT17 R3: Stone Tower Bridge When I saw the categories of this round of the Tourney, I really liked it, but I totally didn't know what set to choose, as I don't really have a set I really liked from my childhood.(because I'm quite young, and haven't owned the classic castle sets...) So I took a look at the list of castle sets, and came along this set. And from the first look, I liked it. I really like the composition and the overall look of the set. But I think the top part of the tower and the part beneath the roof of the arch is a huge mess, and looks like some random bricks are put together... But hey, that makes for a perfect set to revamp! There are a lot of choices I made while redesigning the set, from wich I'll describe the most important ones below: The horsecart is a complete rebuild, but isn't that interesting for the revamp imho, but I wanted to add it, as I liked it in the original set. As for the arch, I really liked the roof or the arch, and wanted to keep the same design for it, but after all I changed it too, as I wanted to use the same roofstructure as on teh main tower. this way, it complements better together. The columns of the rch I totally changed, as I really hated it in the original set. I changed it to the red poles and beam, inspired by asian architecture, to give it a more 'ninja-style' look. I made the ramp longer, so it's less steep. The second reason for it is, that I now have 2 16x16's as a base, which I prefered over 2 different sizes. The bridge is, in looks, quite similar to the set, as the only 'big' change is the addition of the red poles in the border of the bridge. The biggest changes are in the main tower of the set, As the top is a complete change from the set. I sticked with the shape of the roofs, and the 'watchtower' in between, but used completely different techniques for it, what resutls in a, in my opinion, way better look. I decided to co for the red beams, where in the set, you can find black ones. The 4 pillars are also changes, but I sticked with the red parts at the top and at the bottom of the pillars, as that made it look like the walls in the set itself. The biggest change I made at the bottem of the tower, as I removed the huge rock, and changed it to the same angled wall, as beneath the arch. I think it capture the look of a 'fortress' way better than with the rocks. The second reason is that in the set, some lbg slopes are used to make it look like the angled wall is behind the rock. But it doen's look that great in my opinion, so I decided to do it this way. To keep the feeling that it's build on rocks, I changed the ugly green base for the dbg base, and added some small rocks beside the ramps. I think these are the biggest choices I made while building. If you have questions about another part, feel free to ask! While redesigning the set, I also looked to te functions and I think I got all of them! On the photo below you can see them: list of functions: 1. The cart can be opened, to hide some katana's 2. beneath the arch is a bar, to let the gray ninja hide from the samurai 3. If you take out a bar, in the top part of the tower, some dangerous flighing axes will come down. 4. If you take out a bar from the side of the bridge, a trap will open and you will fall down to whatever is beneath. 5. at the bottom of the tower is a secret storage place, where I put some silver... 6. The Tower, bridge and arch can be separated into 3 seperate parts! TT17 R3: Stone Tower Bridge Bonus shot of the roofs: TT17 R3: Stone Tower Bridge I hope you enjoy my revamp of this set! C&C always welcome! Have a nice day, Jaapxaap
  4. High in the mountains sits a small temple above a serene lake. Disturbed only by the sound of the falls, the mountain is home to a peaceful tribe of monks. This is a very large piece that I've worked on for several months now. See the flickr for more information: https://www.flickr.com/photos/nxtquy/31952169970/ Other side and overview shots:
  5. Following the Bushido honor code, a disgraced Samurai is carrying out the Seppuku ritual. The Seppuku act consists of the Samurai warrior performing a ceremonial self-disembowelment in front of spectators. After the samurai is finished, he stretches out his neck for his kaishakunin (assistant) to decapitate him. The ritual is extremely violent. Blood is spilled all over the site of the act, even the white flowers have turned red...
  6. This is my 9th and final entry to this years Colossal Castle Contest. The category was "Miscellaneous - Large Creation". Bushido is a japanese word for the way of the samurai life, loosely analogous to the concept of chivalry. Samurais have been trained in outlying academies to learn this way of life and of course fighting with the sword. I hope you like my asian style and thanks for your comments and criticism !

  7. Here is another entry for the CCCXII, this time I tried to build something a little bit different. Maybe I got the time to build some more entries this year, hope you enjoy. The Japanese have been cultivating rice since thousands of years. In the medieval age they began to build terraces at the northern mountains of Honshū, to take advantage of these surfaces' agricultural potential. Thanks a lot for your C&C
