  1. Hi friends, You know me for my big scaled one of a kind ship models that i build in commission for ship onwers and shipyards and have build many of them, but the most time i create and design and liver very exclusive construction kits for my clients. The last 3 year i have created more than 10 different kits and sold a couple of Thousand of them. My designs with the construction kits are nothing, without the great work from my great friend JunkstyleGio for all the renders and instructions and Jaap Technic for his sticker sheets. This year is a very busy and the first 4 sets are ready to deliver out and here is the first sneak previeuw of the first construction kit that is gona be deliver to a client in Brasil this week. It's a Tugboat that is build at the scale 1/87 and have 1457 pieces and is for my client a new build tugboat that is liver by Damen shipsyard design 2412, build in Brasil and is sailing in the second week of August. Here are the first pictures of the construction kit and later on more news of her. I hope you like it, and this is a set and not a one of kind model where i can go mad in details. And JunkstyleGio and me make a joke in the disclaimer and the client must laugh very much on it and have to stay in the final printart. Regards, Edwin

    Brickton harbour

    Hello All, For the last 1,5 year I've been building on a habour scene. I called the town Bickton Harbour. In this 1,5 year I have built 5 buikdings and several ships. It started with Harpers baitshop. A small wooden building on a pier. After this model I designed and built Gilbert. A fuel and oil company: But what is a harbour without ships. I had a few ships around but they were all to big in scale and size to fit this scene. So I built a LEGO City style trawler and somewhat later an American style tugboat. Brickton harbor is taking shape by Arjan Oude Kotte, on Flickr Tugger 1 is also on LEGO ideas, so....... when I put this all together it looks like this: And then the following problem: the catched fish needs to be brought to land, so i needed some fishing company. When I had built that I thought that the green trawler was somewhat small. And again I built a ship. This time a Shrimpboat. One ship let to another and now the company Patterson Seafood owns 2 shrimpboats. This piece of my harbour scene was on display at Skearbeak 2017: The last 2 buildings I have added are a shipchandler called O'Donnell Brothers and a small railway Freigt Depot from BR (Brickton Railways) Last week I connected everthing together and this is the result. The train in my harbour is a modified copy of the EMD model 40 from commander wolf. The darkblue fishingboat is a modified copy of a model from Mr.Zumbi.
  3. A large shipyard like mine needs its resources split to be ready for all eventualities! So I decided to have part of my shipyard in Elysabethtown (coming at some point) and in Quinnsville (more coming at some point too). For today we are showing you around in the outfittery in Quinsville - we are installing the masts, installing the rigging, and, in the case of a Warship, installing many guns. Let's take a look at my new Heavy War Brig being outfitted! Hey you guys! We need to wait with the last 4 guns for the forecastle and Quarterdeck! We need to get the gundeck filled first! (guy in the grey suit) Why do we have to scrub the sidewalls again? You were the one being stupid, you ...! (guy with the beard and no hair) ROW ROW ROW YOUR BOAT, ROWADY ROWADY YOUR BOAT (guy rowing the green boat) YOU CAN'T SING, SHUT UP! (guy steering the boat) PULL! PULL! (guy holding the rope to pull up the upper foremast) You are almost there, just a few meters more! (guy with the green pants on top of the mast) Holding it! (guy holding onto the mast not helping) Stop this! (guy with the beard) Are you allowed to build a ship here? (one of the Corrington Soldiers) Yes, here, check the papers. (Jerome Monezterell) Total area. I'm not sure if I should license this as a medium artisan and finish the brig or use the hull for another ship (tear this one down) and license this as a large artisan, as this build covers 64x48 studs, more than enough for it. I'll add some pictures of the Heavy War Brig (that doesn't fit into any definition, as it has 10 24 pounder carronades (the classical cannons you can see), 6 9 pounders on the upper part as well as 4 9 pounder chase guns. I feel like it is to small for a 5HA, and 5LA wouldn't fit as this isn't exactly a fast ship, and a 4HA doesn't exist. Oh well...) once my upload works again. A total of 56 minifigures are participating in this build:D

    Falkenstadt - my LEGO world

    Dear Eurobricks friends, I've decide to start this topic in order to show you the layout of Falkenstadt, which is my LEGO world. Unfortunately, I don't have the physical space needed to have it set permanently (this layout measures a humble 11 x 4.60 meters), yet, most of it is already built and waiting in containers till I have it. I've been collecting LEGO since I came out of my dark ages, about 10 years ago. During this time, I focused on getting those sets I drooled over in the catalogues of my childhood, MOC building and getting many of the newer sets that appealed to me. I've collected Castle (mostly from the 80's), Classic Space, Classic Town, City, Pirates, modulars and trains. My main goal was to try to combine all this different themes into a single layout and that it would still be "believable" and coherent. During my childhood I did quite a bit of travelling through Europe and the one thing that really stroke me was how some cities managed to keep mostly intact buildings and whole areas of their medieval ages (I'm from Argentina, and the oldest thing here isn't older than the 1700's). Nuremberg, Rothenburg, Prague and Budapest are just some of the examples that struck me most. So, when thinking my layout, I decided to try to combine all the themes and give them a fictional historical frame, defining areas in it that went along with the different time periods, architectural styles and the blending between them. Another thing that was important to me was how to keep relative scale between sets. If you lay a 80's town set just right to a modular, it simply gets dwarfed and looks ridiculous. That's why I also tried had to come up with an intermediate scale which I call "semi modular", which helps with the blending. Most of my MOCs are in that scale. I'll be updating this topic as regularly as I can, taking pictures of the different MOCs for each area or uploading rendered images of those which still haven't been built in real bricks. So, after this brief (????) intro, let's start with the History of Falkenstadt and the general plan of the layout!!! History of Falkenstadt The history of the territory over which today sits Falkenstadt (Falcon's City) is extremely rich and dates back to the seventh century AD. At that time the region was inhabited by barbarian tribes of relatively peaceful character. In 676 AD, a group of Benedictine monks sent by Pope Donus, settles in the area in order to evangelize the barbarians and build the monastery of St. Stud, which's remains, repeatedly rebuilt, today stand in the outside of the city. In the year 890 AD the monastery is attacked by Viking raiders, burnt to the ground and all its occupants are killed. Horrified Pope Stephen VII decided to send a new mission in 930 AD, but this time with the support of King Johan Der Platen, who sends a contingent of knights under the command Knight Of Chevron. This new mission not only reconstructs the monastery, but builds a nearby fort. It is built with limestone from a nearby quarry, characterized by an intense yellow color, so it will be known as the Golden Castle. Around this fort will bloom the first city in the area. The prevailing peace is interrupted again in 960 AD. A new Viking raid, not only destroys the monastery, but also manages to capture the fortress and destroy most of the city. A few people manage to escape to the north and into in the woods. According to chronicles of the time (known as the Monastery of St. Stud Chronicles), among them is a young hunter (a falconer), who in his escape, and after bloody combat with the brutal Viking raiders, manages to free several of the monastery's monks. The chronicles do not mention his full name and just refer to him as Bern The Falconer or simply as "The Falcon" (Der Falke). The group of refugees settles in the forest and from there wage a re-conquest campaign led by Der Falke, harassing the small Viking garrison which had established in the monastery ruins. In 990 AD the now old Der Falke leads his troops into a fierce attack which definitely expels the Viking invaders. Thus began the reconstruction of the Monastery of St. Stud and construction of a new city. It was decided not to use the ruins of the Golden Castle as the superstitious people considered them cursed. Land was then elected to the south of the Monastery of St. Stud, considering them the most suitable. Aware of the re-conquest, King Oleg Der Platen (Johan's son and successor) convenes the septuagenarian Der Falke to his cohort, knights him and gives his family the coat of arms o the black and white eagle over inverted background. Also, he and his successors are appointed as protectors of the Monastery of St. Stud and made lords of the land surrounding it in "an extension of 50 baseplates". Der Falke returns to his new domains and decides to undertake the construction of a fortress at the entrance to the fjord, in order to protect from and prevent future Viking raids. He selects a rocky promontory at the entrance to the fjord which he names Falkenstein (Falcon's Stone), name that will take not only the fortress, but his descendants too. According to the chronicles of the Monastery of St. Stud, Bern Falkenstein dies the night of December 24th 1000 AD, at 80 years of age (age unusual for the time) without seeing finished the fortress he began to build. The location of his grave is unknown, but recent archaeological studies suggest that his remains rest under the main arch of the tower of the fortress of Falkenstein. He is succeeded by his son Ludwig von Falkenstein. Little is known about the Ludwig's mandate, beyond the not at least important fact that he completed the construction of the Falkenstein Fortress and that he fathered twin sons Otto and Gunther von Falkenstein in 1050 DC. On his deathbed, Ludwig calls his offspring and requires them to swear not to fight for his succession. They solemnly swear and Ludwig dies within hours. Gunther and Otto then decided to divide the family domains, swearing loyalty to each other ad eternum. Otto keeps the family's coat of arms and the Fortress of Falkenstein (as well as the title of Protector of the Monastery), while Gunther chooses for himself a new emblem with a winged sea serpent. Despite maintaining the same surname, Gunther is known hereafter as the Black Knight because of the color of his favorite armor. Given his adventurous spirit, Gunther chooses the lands to the east and on the opposite shore of the fjord, which is still unexplored. There he builds his castle, which still exists. The brothers also divide productive tasks. Otto dedicates the work of his servants to agriculture while Gunther is dedicated to livestock. In 1090, to commemorate the feat of the Re-conquest led by his grandfather, Otto formally names the city as Falkenstadt. He instructs to build a large building to officiate as Court and Council Chamber and in front of it he starts building a cathedral. Both buildings are preserved today, serving the first as Parliament. He also builds the first city walls. Of them, the only remaining section is Falcon's Tower, now recycled and transformed into a train station. The region will undergo a period of peace and prosperity for the next 10 years. But in 1100 everything will change. The grandson of King Oleg Der Platen, Olaf II, decides to ignore the land titles given to the Falkenstein family and requires Otto and Gunther to pay exorbitant taxes. They both refuse and Olaf II invades the region and sets city of Falkenstadt under siege. Before this takes place, Otto and Gunther manage to retreat to their respective strongholds. The siege of Falkenstadt lasts two years until in 1102 eventually falls, victim to famine and plague. The population is reduced to a few hundred, who are expelled from the city. Most of these refugees, like their ancestors, seek shelter and subsistence means in the forests north of the Fortress of Falkenstein. A small group, led by Hans Wolf will settles in a former guardhouse and begins a guerrilla war against the invader. The group will be called the Wolfpack. For the next 20 years the area will witness countless battles between the royalist troops of Olaf II and the coalition of Otto, Gunther, the Wolfpack and the People of the Forest. During this period the current city gates erected as part of a new defensive system. This is why they still bear the Lion's Coat of Arms, as a reminder of the presence of the invader. Olaf II also builds a fortress on the northwestern edge (to ensure his supply chain) and a new bridge over the River Schön (both still remain). By 1124 the Coalition has managed to besiege the royalist troops behind the walls of Falkenstadt. This siege will last one year, until finally the city falls after a fierce assault led by Otto Von Falkenstein. During the assault and having already freed nearly all of the city, Otto found his death when struck by an arrow fired from the tower of the City Council (where his statue now stands). Otto dies without heirs and without seeing the completion of the Cathedral and is buried on the spot where he fell. After the Otto's death, the population asks Gunther to assume the mandate on all family land and in a strange fact for the time, proclaim him King. Gunther is crowned in the unfinished Cathedral on December 3, 1126 and establishes his throne in the ancient fortress of Falkenstein. His reign, however, did not last long. In 1135, he dies at age 85, leaving as legacy the foundations of a legal system and having completed the Cathedral's construction. His remains rest in the south chapel of it. Whit this the Chronicles of the Monastery of St. Stud come to their end. For the next 500 years, the city will enjoy peace and prosperity until in 1652 it is ravaged by British pirate raids. Significant events of this period include the construction of the El Dorado Fortress on the opposite side of the fjord in 1690, which worked in conjunction with the Falkenstein Castle and the Black Fortress guarding the entrance to the fjord and therefore the port of the city. From this period a small pirate base on an island at the entrance of the fjord still remains. Of this period is also the museum ship now anchored near El Dorado Fortress. In 1860, with the emergence of larger vessels, it was decided to move the port to the north shore of the fjord, as this has deeper waters. Over the next 20 years, the transfer of goods between the two sides of the fjord (from the New Port to the Old Port) will be done in barges. Aware of the complications of this method (impossibility to make the crossing during storms, delays and its inherent danger), King Grunwald III instructs the engineer Gustave Studffeil the design and construction of a bridge to ease the crossing of the fjord. However, it must continue to allow the entry of vessels to it. Studffeil chooses the narrowest point of the fjord and designs a revolutionary piece for its time. He proposes an elevating bridge with two sections, controlled and managed from an tower set on an artificial island. This tower, in turn, complements Meinhard's lighthouse, built in 1765 at the entrance to the fjord. Despite receiving criticism and having his ideas laughed at, he begins construction of the bridge, which is finished in record time and inaugurated on 16 November 1886. To this day, the Bridge of Grunwald, as is known, remains in operation. During the decades of 1870-1890 many of the most emblematic buildings of the city are also built. Unfortunately, few of them remain, as bombings suffered by the city during Second World War , wiped out most of them. However, half a block remains almost intact near the Lion's Gate and the now abandoned (and according to many haunted) Grand Hotel opposite the apse of the Cathedral. During this period the village of Schneedorf, atop mount Weißen Berg is also erected. In 1898, Manfred II, Grunwald III's successor acquires the first steam locomotive and lays the first railways in the region. This locomotive is now located in the front yard of ​​the Central Station. In 1905, seeing the potential of trains as transportation and cargo means, commands his engineers to build two workshops in the northern part of the New Port to serve for the manufacture and maintenance of locomotives. He also instructs the already old Studffeil the construction of a railway bridge over the fjord. From these workshops, on May 14th 1920, will roll the Emerald Night, iconic locomotive that even today still runs (only tourism purposes). By this time is also built the Central Railway Station, the first movie theater that is still preserved and the Municipality of the city. The Kingdom of Falkenstein will remain on the sidelines of the First World War. However, it cannot remain neutral during World War II. It will first be invaded by Germany and by the Soviets later. The King Carsten I will be deposed and imprisoned. Large sections of the city will be demolished by bombings (including almost all of the old walls and many large buildings constructed during the second half of the nineteenth century). However, by 1945, after waging a guerrilla war, the kingdom regains its independence. In memory of those unsung heroes today stands a monument in the Central Station Park. After the war and during the 50s the city was rebuilt. The wealthiest families choose to move to the outskirts of the old ruins of the Golden Castle. This area of the city is known as Goldorf. During the 60s the new Central Hospital and the Airport are constructed (the city formerly had only an airfield) and railways extended to link the different sectors of the city. The remains of the Old Port are also recycled and converted into a yacht club. Also, during this period, the first goals of the Space Program are achieved, when astronaut Neil Studstrong sets foot on the moon and pronounces his famous words "just a stud for minifgs, but a giant leap for minifigkind". This Space program continues till today, with permanent bases on the moon's surface. In 1990 and as part of the celebrations of Falkenstadt's Millennium a new railway station near the airport and the Otto von Falkenstein National Stadium are built. In 2010 a monorail line that connects the city center with the airport and Goldorf opens. At present, the Kingdom of Falkenstein, with its capital at Falkenstadt, has as form of government a constitutional monarchy. Its economy is based mostly on trade through its thriving port, agriculture and livestock. Another important source of income is provided by the always present tourist activity, given the rich history of the city. The Layout: Sector A: This is the Castle area of the layout. The idea is to have this table detachable, in order to play with this layout in a different time period. Sector B: Historical Port Sector C: New Port, cargo transfer and rail yard Sector D: Old port, recycled into Marina Sector E: Airport and Space Center Sector F: Stadium Sector G: Main city Sector H: Goldorf area Sector I: Rural area Sector J: Schneedorf Village Comments are greatly appreciated! Enjoy!
  5. We all go through dark ages, and another is fast approaching and I have decided to considerably downsize my collection of models. Before listing them all on Ebay I wanted to give Eurobrick Members / LUG'S the opportunity to acquire them as they would make a sizable diorama for someone willing to have the space. In all cases please assume the models are 98% complete, i.e. there may be occasional part changes but these should not effect the appearance of the model. Not all mini-figs are present, and assume no instructions. Where possible I link to photos for your viewing pleasure. Please be aware that shipping from Switzerland is not cheap. There is an online price calculator from Swiss Post. There is an automatic limit of 2cm package thickness which is generally not possible to keep for any model. E.g. a 12V wheel in padded envelope is already larger than 2cm. Consequently most postage to Western Europe will be over 15 CHF. Maxi-Brief parcels have to have a weight under 2kg and Length + Width + Height under 90cm, with no single dimension of more than 60cm. This can be achieved for small models, otherwise it will via Small Packet Post. Some recent examples: 3.5kg parcel to Belgium: 45 CHF: Incuded Tracking and Insurance 4 kg parcel to Holland: 49 CHF: Included Tracking and Insurance 500g parcel to UK: 15.50 CHF: No tracking, no insurance For addresses in Switzerland it costs between 9-15 CHF depending upon weight, or we can arrange a pickup from Zurich-Oberland. For addresses in Germany I can be persuaded to take the train to Konstanz and post the parcel using DHL prices is then about 6-10 Euro (up to 10kg). The prices are based upon average selling from bricklink in the past 6 months, and ebay (tends to be cheaper). I am always open to sensible offers, or multiple set discounts. However we both know the realistic prices so please, nothing silly. This list will appear in subsequent posts so that I can easily edit the items. However as a flavour here are the harbour and cargo sets

    Seaside Town

    Hi all, Here is a layout I did recently. The front section was custom built for this event. It was inspired and supposed to loosely resemble Neuhoff in Denmark. I used over 40 different colors and fun trying to make as many different styles. It was a great exercise in using many of my random windows, doors, and roof slopes, and rare colors that I have acquired over the years but didn't have enough to do anything large scale with. Most of the boats were also recently made and came out well for what I was aiming for. The back section has some of my larger town buildings some of which are somewhat new. Total layout is about 8x8 feet. Enjoy! More pics on my Flickr stream
  7. Hello! Seems I am newbie, Anyway First topic RC lego boats Seems Very interesting, you can do that easy with many kinds of lego Boat Hulls. But that was a bit hard to buy (I don't know it is only happen to me ) So, I tried to make boat without boat hulls. In april, I made something, which is Very Slow, Just float a bit, Also Can't turn. And, I just tried to make something turn, But with NXT, that was So Slow, just Turning... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zr5MtfozOL4 (first part of this video) Now, Starting again, I wonder you can give me some tips, and suggestions. Thanks!
