    [MOC] Building site

    I started this a little into the new year and let me say the good thing about a building site MOC is it doesn't have to look finished to be so. Woohoo! I realised then that I had never made a building site MOC which seemed a dereliction of duty considering building buildings is what us AFOLs do right? Being firmly stuck in the past when it comes to LEGO dimensions (the mathematical measurement method, not the game console games) I like to build 4-wide vehicles and so generally build buildings to a slightly smaller height than is common these days. Way back in 2007 or thereabouts I picked up the Tower Crane set (#7905). Looked great on the box but to be kind to it it looked terrible when included into my city at the time (like the Eiffel Tower did). Size of course was the big problem, too high and too wide, detraction. Conscious that the scale needed to fit be appropriate to the style of my city and also that the road needed to connect to another road the building site area was quite restrictive at 24x34 studs. This made it a little tricky to fit in everything (actually I didn't include any external scaffolding or portable cabin as a result of having no space to put it but in the end I added a further 16x48 baseplates to accommodate the roofed hoarding and side lane) but I find the restrictions made the build overall more enjoyable as there a little challenges here and there. The tower crane is 5x5 studs which itself introduces a few problems mainly related to the attachment of the ladders and boom. Two counterweights for the boom are used, one the official weight black brick but seeing that in reality you usually see grey concrete slabs (or things that look like concrete slabs) being used I tried to replicate this look. The big problem here was the simple fact that my counterweights combined were not heavy enough to support the boom with any significant load. So off I went to raid the tool box and filled a revised hollowed counterweight with nails (see here). Speaking of booms, the builders built this in record time to cash in before the next crash. Hope you Town fans and 4-wide loyalists out there like this build. Happy to hear people's thoughts or comments on it! I will look to replace these waste shoots with a white or another colour version at some point, just to add a splash of colour, not that too much LBG is bad or anything. Would like the 1x1x2 cylinders used for the streetlights not to have cutouts. Got the calculator out and the office area is accurate. Made a little microscale version of the 'finished building' for this billboard. The construction company logo is the jumping frogs. Maybe because they jumped legal hoops to avoid being prosecuted on health and safety grounds? Finally can get that Welder to work! Also you can look down the dry riser. Someones's not happy. Fact. All tower crane operators end up with glasses due to eye strain despite in cabin cameras. Just made that up.. The view from above. Please make sure your figs are not afraid of heights before looking down.

    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?

    MOC Modular Construction Site

    My Name is Ryan Taggart. I design my modulars using LDD, and source bricks through Bricklink & Brickowl. This is my third completed MOC Modular. The Crane is a redesign of the 2006 set 7905-1 (the tower, controls, and rear end are new - the boom is like the set [hard to improve on] ) It also features a home for the 'portaloo' from Service truck 60073-1 The custom printed elements were done by FAB Bricks UK. For details and for the design and thought process visit me @ MOC Pages. http://www.moc-pages.../moc.php/424271 NOW LIVE ON LEGO IDEAS https://ideas.lego.com/projects/129250 UPDATE - 18th Feb 2016 24 DAYS IN 5000+ SUPPORTERS! THANK YOU EVERYONE I've added more images: hope you like it.

  6. So I've been back in Lego for just over a year. I originally got back into when I purchased a few sets for my daughter, and discovered Bricklink. My intent was to sell enough to pay for my daughters sets. So over the last year I've grown from 0 pieces to just over 50,000 in my store. Hasn't really worked out that way I was hoping it would, sales have been kinda slow and random at best. I now find myself wanting to pull from my own inventory and start building sets and creations. I figure I'll still keep the store because I know there's lots of pieces I won't be using and sets I don't want to build. I figure just pull what I want to start a city of my own. So naturally I was curious if anyone else got back into or started into lego with the intent to resell and changed to building and collection with an emphasis on selling second. I'm sure pulling and updating my inventory with pieces I'm removing will be time consuming, but none the less I believe that is direction I'm heading.
  7. I have been really thinking about this lately. Do the Chima animals really think that the biggest battles are between 35 animals? I want to know this so I know which set I should get multiples of (and also so my wallet will beg for mercy.) IMO Crawley and Rascal are the most generic, but seriously, I need more input then just my mind.
