[OL-FB] Phred's Enchanted Villa
Capn Frank posted a topic in Brethren of the Brick SeasAs mayor of Fatu Hiva, I needed a beautiful, enchanted villa to show the natives how awesome I am. Well, I'm happy to say. The house is complete. It only took three months to build the house and property. One month to build the house, and property, and two months to make the roof of the house. I'm really happy with the results. The roof is fairly rugged - as long as you know where to grab it. This house encompasses two 30X30 octagons and two 18X18 squares for my Pirate collaborative layout. There will be another 30X30 octagon at the side doorway. Below are a couple shots of the stables. My daughter really likes this house too. You may have two questions in your head right now. Why does a little girl like this house SO much? Does this thing have an interior? Unfortunately, these questions are not for the faint-of-heart who fear strange horizons and for those who are by now... bored. So, I used a Spoiler. Thanks for looking.
[C-MODEL] 42000 - Bootleg Belle
Immo posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingComin' in quite late, one year after discontinuing of the original set, but still quite hot - I give you the Bootleg Belle, a monstrous desert hot rod on steroids. Forget the stance, omit the channeling, leave out the chopping. Stacking a classic 1930's coupé on top of a 1940's truck's slanted chassis, adding 9' diameter wheels and a monstrous supercharged mountain V8 created this pinnacle of Kustom Kulture. Bootleg Belle is a moonshine hauler at a size of a small mountain that gives you a nice sense of superiority, even if you are a modest bloke. With two meters of metal framework under your butt you know who is the king of the desert now. Features: ► mountain V8 cammer engine with moving pistons ► blower with rotating pulley + Enderle-style bugcatcher & twin carb ► radiator with reinforced grille ► ribbed hose headers and shotgun exhausts ► working differential and transmission ► working steering connected to steering wheel and a rear facing HOG ► detailed cockpit with a steering wheel, dashboard, gear shifter and two seats ► opening, functional trunk ► rear hinged ("suicide") doors with shaved handles ► individual suspension for each wheel ► reinforced bumpers ► rear view mirrors, desert safety flag 42000 C-model, uses around 92,5% of set's parts (loose assumption). Sorry for the quality of photos, still can't afford a decent camera.
