    [MOC] Barber & Bakery City Building

    Hello there, after a short break I wanna present you my new MOC Building. This time I build 2 houses side by side on a 32x32 baseplate. In the first floor a small bakery and a barber find it´s place. The floor with the stairs to the upper floors is in between the two. In the second floor I placed an apartment and a small doctor´s office. In the top floor is another small apartment with a big roof terrace. Let me know, if you like the building or tell some points of improvement. If you like the pictures below, feel free to watch the building video on YouTube: The bakery with a big sales counter and 3 round bar tables. The floor upstairs in the mid with the yellow entrance. In the right building you can see the barber salon with the chairs and a counter in the mid. The doctors office on the right with a waiting room and the treatment room. The apartment is empty because the residents are moving. There are only a few moving boxes left in the apartment. The apartment in the top floor with a dining area, a kitchen, the bed in the corner and a small bathroom. Also on the top floor: The big rooftop terrace. You can see a lot of plants, outdoor furniture, a bbq grill and a raised garden bed.

    Build my own LEGO city

    Hello LEGO city friends, I started my own LEGO city last Christmas and made a YouTube series out of it. It´s a city with a retro style, I use my old childhood sets from the 80´s. I am already 12 Episodes in and my city has grown a lot. There are also some story elements around my citizens'. Unfortunately it´s in German language but that shouldn´t stop you to come and visit. So please feel free to come by and watch some LEGO from a long long time ago. And here is the link to my channel:

    [MOC] Micro city

    Hello! A year and a half ago, I saw somewhere on Flickr a building assembled on something like that. The idea came up to assemble an entire city from such buildings. At first standart basis were used, then doubled and quadruplet, and sometimes more. During this time two cities were built. I will share renders for those who are intrested. First city Original here I will continue to add buildings in the comments. Thank you for attention :)
  5. Hello Brick friends, today i started a new project. A microscale city. come by and see how the city grows from the first building to a brick new World full of ...... yes, that´s for you to find out. In this youtube series i will build on my city every week and bring you new videos for you to enjoy. Be a part of it and watch it now! Have a lot of fun! Cheers

    [MOC] Levels of Coruscant

    Welcome to Coruscant. It's a build of playsets that stack on top of each other for practical, space-sharing reasons. We will be going from the tip of the penthouse down to the base of the megastructure, far underneath the surface where the seedy Underworld lies. This vertical build has been tinkered with since 2015. It started with Padme's apartment which was meant to sit alongside Palpatine's Arrest - but then I made an Outlander club and felt it might be worthy to have both builds combined in some way, since those scenes flow together in AOTC. The Federal district (Jedi Temple, Sheev's office and the Senate Building) could be a part of this, but to the side. This area is for civilian life. The recent TCW episodes which took place in the Coruscant Underworld gave us more of a sense of what life down there is like for the poorer Coruscanti residents. It compelled me to complete the vertical build, celebrating the glory that is this ancient urban city-planet at the heart of the Star Wars galaxy. Ordinarily I'm not into using too much rainbow color, but this is supposed to be a cyberpunk city, allowing for lots of light and billboard images where possible. I have a couple of light bricks but unsure where to place them to best effect. There's a few trans pieces in place that need Aurebesh, although I am unsure how to get them in transparent sticker format. Anyone have suggestions for printing onto transparency? Let's look closer at each of the sections. At the top of the tower we have the elite tier, political-class lodgings. Padme's balcony is a place she and senator Jar-Jar can gaze out and enjoy the perpetual sky traffic. This build was originally bigger with another room for the bed and an action feature to blow the window out (so Obi-Wan can chase the worm-droid) but action features seems unrealistic as the tower isn't probably sturdy enough for that kind of play. I don't see many Senator Padme MOCs and I think it's amusing to recreate the scene where she packs to go back to Naboo in a huff. Anakin is missing from this build - his speeder would be parked at Sheev's office. I did have CW era Anakin+Padme posing, maybe that looks better? Here's how it was before: Below this penthouse is the parking area, as well as another lodging area for wealthy or connected Coruscanti. A couple of space dudes wait for a bus or a taxi. This is the practical part of the build, the one that allows Bounty Hunter Pursuit a place to sit on the shelf. I realize that the Aurebesh is inverted, it's an old PSD file I can't locate but I am in the process now of creating new artwork for billboards to include in this build later on. Is TLG ever going to give us another AOTC speeder chase? If so, a little part of the scene (like below) would be such a welcome addition. This red block is meant to represent the Uscru entertainment district of Coruscant. This nightclub is inspired by the Outlander Club of AOTC. The space above the bar is an area for private dancing (CW face Secura standing in for a pole dancer. Need some Oolas for this room). Outside we see a shady character selling death sticks quite fearlessly. Bane looks to be waiting to meet up with some roughs for a job. The back panel pops off for access to the bar and club area. Tried to maintain the light fixtures look from the CW series along the handrails. We're going down below the surface now to the Underworld. Here we'll see a number of lower-income apartments, there's a tunnel/sewer type passage between the buildings with some rats. This prevents space to build any interior areas, but it allows for a hand to reach in a grab the whole tower (minus the base) for moving. There's a holophone around the corner. Around the back there are colored signs waiting for Aurebesh, billboards etc. and an improved Bith face advertisement. This also makes a good location to stage Ahsoka/Ventress duels. The lowest level wasn't something I'd planned to build, but the Blacktron baseplate screamed Cyberpunk to me so I had to. I had a big bin of parts from taking apart an old Slave-1 and a few other kits that I didn't have display space for, and started assembling what ended up being the 'base level' of low-rent vendors, who live a hardscrabble life among criminal gangs, rust and destitution. There's a Hutt down here, not Jabba or Ziro, just a commoner of the depths who loves deals on creap fruit. There are four businesses and one private residence, and I strongly suspect at least one is a criminal front. I did pull apart my Police Gunship for part of this build, but the plan is to make a Coruscant police speeder at some point. For now, police cam droids will have to do for law enforcement. Check out the conduit worm under the rusted panel! Gross. Once again, front and back together without the speeders from the classic set 7133-1 parked in place. Coruscant is a tricky location to try and reproduce. I've been coming back to Eurobricks for years getting ideas and inspirations from builds around here... there are some fantastic creations, and although I'm missing some, I just want to shout out to some members who have provided inspiration with these terrific builds. [MOC] CORUSCANTBy EtelEnzos. I doubt TLG would try and make a Betrayal at Bespin like attempt at Courscant, but this in an incredible interior/exterior playset. The tall foyers really capture the atmosphere. [MOC] Coruscant Pursuit By o0ger This entry proves how important it is to place the Bounty Hunter Pursuit at the Outlander club location - it helps to give a context to the build instead of just 2 speeders. Coruscant By Gerechtigkeitsliga The amount of detail and the sheer size of this monster is staggering! Look at the gap in the building for the air traffic to flow through - it's incredible. [MOC] Coruscant Hi-Rise, by Finnmoses. This one stretches beyond the imagination. It is so incredibly huge and tall it is simply mind-boggling the level of detail and content in every scene. Truly this is a Coruscanti masterpiece to behold. I hope it's still being proudly displayed by Finnmoses.

    MOC: Theo's Tailoring

    Hello all. I've recently just completed my latest building - Theo's tailoring. It's an Art Nouveau influenced building housing a tailors. It's taken about 2 months in all to put together and I've incorporated many elements of the time. Sadly not quite as weird as some real life examples I've come across but hopefully I'll be able to recreate them too someday! Onto the pics; You can view them at my Flickr here if you wish: https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/ Happy to answer any comments or questions on the way its been constructed! Cheers!
  8. Hello to the community. The last weeks, I had finally a bit more time for LEGO, so I started a new small digital project: (digital) modern redesign of the classic LEGO Set 4554 Central Station (also known as Metro Station) from the LEGO Trains Theme from 1991. These have been my first steps in the Lego Train Theme, maybe you like the result. ;-) Picture 1: 4554 Central Station Revisited Picture 2: 4554 Central Station Revisited I also created some building instructions for the train station. You can download them (PDF File, 125 pages, for free, no registration) under the below URL: https://bit.ly/revisited4554 Ok, this is now a bit offtopic, but may I ask you however, as a sort of recompensation, to vote for my LEGO Ideas Project Princess June's Castle and share my project idea in social media. You can vote for my project here: https://bit.ly/junescastle. I would really appreciate. Happy Building, stay safe and keep healthy. :-)
  9. Hi all! I'd like to share my atempt of making an exact as possible rebuild of the historic castle of the city of Thun in Switzerland, made with LDD and stud.io. I tried to implent as much details as possible(i.e woodwork in the roof and ceilings, or the chimneys that are connected from the rooms up to the roof). My mainfocus was set on the castle, the surroundings I made just because it looked a little naked in the fotos, and the big trees are actually not mine, but some modified versions of other stud.io users, will replace them later on. I also want to keep building the old city wall, including towers and gates, and maybe the city church, so it's still a work in progress. I'm no pro at MOC-ing, it's actually one of my first buildings, and it was born because of a lot of sparetime in theese weird times. So let me know what you think, what you like and what I could or should improve. Thanks for reading. A big part of the beauty of this castle is its surroundings, so I photoshopped/gimped it into my brothers picture, which got the 3rd place in "Wiki loves monuments 2018 Switzerland", below is the original photo for comparison: When the pandemie is over, feel free to visit this beautiful place, which is considered by many one of the most beautiful on earth... Some more pictures: various outside views: (trees all on stud.io: sakura by timmeyh / Big Tree by bb1061366 / tree by SMS) exploded view: Some pictures of the interior, here the attic: circular stairs in the tower, and chimney shouldn't miss out: Knight's hall:
  10. This is my LEGO Ideas Rivendell project. You can support it here! You're support can help make this a real LEGO set! :D Description Rivendell, a collection of beautifully designed buildings, built by Lord Elrond in the 2nd Age of Middle earth. Nestled, almost hidden, among the trees of a deep gorge to the west of the Misty Mountains, Rivendell is the home of the Elves. Rivendell is one of the very key and more well know locations in Middle Earth, having many places named after it in real life. It plays a key role in both the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings, as a safe haven and place of comfort to the characters in both stories. Build This highly detailed, architecture style model is built in roughly trophy figure scale (the same scale as the micro Hogwarts Castle set). I have tried to capture the architecural style and granduer of Rivendell as well as possible in such small scale and with LEGO bricks. I based my design on Weta Worksop's model of Rivendell, which you can view here. Although there is no particular right or wrong for how Rivendell looks, Weta Workshop was the company that designed all the props for the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies, so I thought that their model would be a good place to start. Pieces This microscale model is actually quite a large set, containing 2578 pieces exactly. This number will obviously change a bit as I make changes to the model based on suggestions made by the community, but I will update it when I can! Would love to here what you think, and even more would love your support! Thanks for checking this out!

    Hello Eurobrickers

    Hello there, my name is Simon from Simons Brick World. I´m happy to see so much Lego fans in here and also such pretty and awesome builds. I started a small YouTube Channel in 2020. Since this time, my passion for building MOC´s cannot be stopped. My plan is to show people without space or capabilities that there is a good way creating Lego buildings and MOC virtual. I show them what is possible and try to give them some ideas to start their own online projects. Since the launch of my channel, I try to upload a new video every week. I would be very happy if you visit my YouTube Channel and maybe support me and my plan with a subscribe or by promoting the idea. You can also visit my brand new Instagram Account, named: simonsbrickworld Tell me if you want me to post my new MOC´s here too. Thanks for your time Happy Building Simon from Simons Brick World

    [MOC] The Village Post Office

    Hi everyone It's been a while since I've posted a MOC on Eurobricks, in fact this is my first new MOC for over a year and the first building I've designed for almost 2 years. Anyway this is my latest creation "The Village Post Office". The model represents a typical British Post Office from the early 1930's and also features a vintage mail van. At first glance it may look like a modular but it is not. The model features an open back design and the different levels can't be separated. The base is also much different in size and design to a standard modular building. In total the model contains 2262 pieces. Here are some shots of the exterior... Notable features include an iconic red phone box, pillar box a bench and a tree. A series of steps at the side give the minifigs access to the first floor. INTERIOR DETAILS As mentioned earlier the building has an open back to give access to the interiors. On the ground floor is the main Post Office itself. I've tried to give this a rustic, vintage appearance with wooden floorboards and wood panelled service desk. Details include a cash register, lable dispenser, a set of weighing scales and shelves behond the desk for sorting all the mail. Opposite the desk is a parcel wrapping station. The idea for this was stolen borrowed from the Elf Clubhouse set. On the first floor above I've added an apartment which is home to the couple who run the Post Office. This is packed with everything they need including a bed, fireplace, kitchen and an antique gramophone. I didn't have space to include a toilet - but at least they have a bucket. VINTAGE MAIL VAN The mail van is a traditional red style truck as would have been used in Britain during the early 1930's. It is 6 studs wide and features opening rear doors and a removeable roof. The emblems on the van and postman are bespoke prints I created for this model. MINIFIGS AND OTHER DETAILS The model contains 4 mnifigs, a postman, customer and the husband and wife who run the post office and live in the appartment above. I've also included a bike and several animals. LEGO IDEAS My reason for designing this with an open back and with a unique style base was to try and distance it as much as possible from the modular buildings and hopefully give it a better chance of success on LEGO IDEAS. My hope is that if this was lucky enough to reach 10K then LEGO would view it as a standalone building in a similar way to The Old Fishing Store, and not something that would conflict with the modular building series. Anyway I hope you like the model. I had a lot of fun designing this one.. Feel free to let me know what you think. I'd also be massively grateful if anyone would be kind enough to support it on LEGO IDEAS as well. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/16ae1e95-cf30-41dd-ae23-36e07668df05 Thanks very much.

    [MOC] Vintage Bus

    [Updated] This bus was not selected to be final 15, but I submitted it to Lego Ideas. Please support it if you like it: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/e9b3598f-db12-4b90-aca9-206872843695 This moc is for LEGO Ideas contest "BUILD A VINTAGE CAR TO CRUISE THE STREETS OF LEGO® MODULAR BUILDINGS!" . I will design several more for this contest :D https://ideas.lego.com/projects/e9b3598f-db12-4b90-aca9-206872843695 In the old days, not many people owned a car. Bus was important transportation for people. So a vintage bus should be included in every Lego city. The vintage bus I designed has many playable features. The engine hood, passenger, driver, and back door can be opened. I also added a luggage rack on the top of the bus. Some passengers' accessories were placed on the rack, including two cute pigs. The vintage bus dimension is 6x18x8 bricks.

    REVIEW: 60291 Family House

    Here is my review on the new lego city family house: THE GOOD: The house looks good Good varieties of rooms decor New Dog New Dashboard print Lots of space to pose minifigures even without the road plates Good parts selections for expanding similar style building THE NOT SO GOOD: Road plates not necessarily needed in my opinion Overall, I do like this set. It looks nice and great to get new dog which is a golden retriever! The new dashboard print also a nice addition. And it's always nice to see CMF parts being utilised in normal set (the video game controller). I don't really like the road plates though and to be honest, it didn't really add much to the set. I guess it's really depended on individual's preference. I got this set with discount so the price was not that bad for me but in RRP the price does feel a bit on the high end. I will recommend this set if you cant wait to get the new dog or does not have similar sets before and of course if you are into the new road plates =)

    [MOD] My digital City vehicles

    Hi all. Until recently I resided only at the EB Technic subforum. For several reasons (which I won’t elaborate here) I’m taking a break from Technic. Instead I found joy in building City vehicles in LDD and improving them as I like. My main motivation is the nostalgia for the times I had a Lego city and some of the vehicle I had a fascination for as a kid. Small disclaimer: This all just for fun, I have no plans for building any of the following vehicles with real bricks. I would like to kick things of with the first series of vehicles: some utility trucks inspired by the cherry picker in the upcoming 60306 Shopping Street set. l liked the proportions, colors and general look of the original, but missed some play value. So I tweaked the nose, modified the cherry picker for bigger range, added outriggers and some tool storage. This is the result, next to its source of inspiration: The ball got rolling and I built two version of this vehicle, a contractor truck towing an air compressor and one featuring a snowplow. When the cherry picker and the contractor are at work it looks something like this: I hope you like them, I'm currently working on another series of vehicles
  19. As some of you may know, I already have a topic for my sport cars. Why not have another one for regular city cars? The latest LEGO Ideas contest "BUILD A VINTAGE CAR TO CRUISE THE STREETS OF LEGO® MODULAR BUILDINGS!" was a perfect occasion to get back to building after a break. After all, 6-wide cars is what I mainly build, so why not take a shot at a contest? Choosing a subject matter for an entry was the first step. In the end, I (like many others) decided to build a delivery truck. I was able to complete it in about a week, and looking back at it, I think I may have overcomplicated things as I tend to. Anyway, I am really pleased with the end result, especially with the shaping of the fenders. It fits one minifig, 3 crates and a hand truck. The roof and the hood are detachable, and there's a brick-built V engine. Comments and critique are welcome. The model is available at Mecabricks, or you can download an .lxf file. UPD: PDF instructions are now available at my Bricksafe here.

    [MOC] Small Art Gallery - Modular

    Hi everyone, I present to you my very first modular moc . For this little project I mainly focused on the outside as that is where most of the appeal of a modular building is (for me at least ). For the outside I wanted to try and make someting that you could see here in The Netherlands and my main inspirations where the buildings in Amsterdam. I did want the outside to be colourful tho, as to make it fit with the official modular sets. As the inside so small I didn't know what to with it for a long time. As an art gallery is mostly decorated on the walls, I thought it would fit well. Also because it's an art gallery, I wanted to make it look like the building has been expanded on the backside and thus make it feel more "modern". You can see the full album on my Flickr. Hope you all like it!
  21. Merry Christmas to all of you in this weird year, i hope all of you stay health and safety! Well, i hope you enjoy this cars....or at least you get some smiles.... As usual questions, and criticims are wellcome.Like past year im make some cars for some minifigs. This one is a litle "bizarre", but no one saids that greek goddes can,t be badass :P I like this minifig, like her "ugly" face, so i made this, it´s old schooll, and was nice go back to basics... This rally car is inspired by the iconic Renault 5 copa turbo, so i make it 5/4/6 wider to try to chatch the spirit.... This is the last car i made this year ( 2 days ago......yeah im very lazy.....) im looking at my minifigs collections, see this cowboy girl and boom.....big jeep/bronco 4x4 off road car...horns (i wish i have bigger horns) and patriot pattern tiles... Once again Merry xmass, and happy (couldn´t be worst.....) new year.

    Soltown - video tours

    What's the upside, dear AFOL's? ((I don't dislike modulars, I just don't feel I have the space for them, but I do build MOCs inspired by LEGO's official modulars.)) Anyhouse, here's a video where I showcase my custom LEGO town, Soltown, as it is in January 2020. I hope to post updates in this thread if it's allowed.

    [MOC] House of the Inventor

    Hi everyone! First post! My name if Filip and even though I have been playing around with Lego for many years both as a kid and with my own kids I'm quite new to the AFOL-scene. I was encouraged to post this to Eurobricks by LegoModularFan who gave me some overwhelmingly nice comments on Flickr yesterday when I posted this so here goes! I created this for Brixtars modular building competition and this is my second attempt at a full fledged 32x32 modular building. My first building, "The Queens Brick" was quite square in it's shape so I wanted to challenge myself this time and put much more round shapes and angles in there. It was a lot of fun trying out different techniques where some worked better than others but I'm quite happy with the end result even though it will for sure not win any prizes for stability ;) Technically it doesn't really meet the requirements of a modular since I didn't put the technical bricks in there and the street is a bit narrow but it would be an easy enough mod to make it legal. Enough words and on with pictures of my steam-punkish house on the hill with a secret lab for horrible experiments on the top floor and a basement where the irresponsible owner pours his toxic waste out in the sewer system. Here is a link to the rest of the images: https://flic.kr/s/aHskuXCmdk It's quite often one sees micro builds of regular sized modulars but this was actually made the other way around. The idea started with an all digital micro build I did for a competition last year that looked like this: The instructions for the building is available on Brixtar but please bear in mind that the digital instructions are not 100%. For instance, the smaller roof used some parts that didn't actually exist so they need to be replace. Also both roofs need some very heavy reinforcing or they will, I know from hard experience, crumble in your hands :) But please use them as a source for inspiration if you wish! Last but not least, cred where cred is due; the fences/walls were created after inspiration from Jonas Kramms fantastic examples and the usage of tan skeleton legs for the decorations around the windows was something similar I saw a while ago but I couldn't find that image so I'm not sure who came up with it in the first place. Please let me know if you are the person who made that and i will of course mention you both here and on Flickr! Thanks for watching and please let me know both what you might like and what you might not like so I can learn and improve!

    REVIEW: 60250 Mail Plane

    Here is my review on 60250 Mail Plane: THE GOOD: Cheap way to get another white bird. Uncommon minifigure included. The plane turns out to be pretty good than originally expected. THE NOT SO GOOD: To be honest, there isn't any. If I have to pick one, it will be the limited availability. Overall, I think this is great. It's perfect as a small gift for Christmas. The plane turns out to be looking better than expected. And it's a great way to get an extra white bird (this is the main reason I bought it). Now this can be hard to find for some as it is limited to Lego store and selected retailers depending on the region you live in. Anyway, totally recommended!
  25. Hi everyone I'd like to present my latest MOC, a new modular building called Bricks & Blooms. I hope you like it. Bricks & Blooms is a modular Garden Centre built over 3 levels on a 32 x 32 base plate. in total it uses 2587 bricks. The facade is supposed to give the impression of being 2 buildings side by side but it is of course just one single building. The front to back measurement of the building is quite narrow, similar to Parisian restaurant. This is because I wanted to maintain plenty of space at the rear of the building for the main outside garden centre / plant sale area. THE MINIFIGURES I've included 6 mini figs and a cat with this MOC. Left to right they are: 2 customers (a father and his daughter), The garden centre shop keeper and gardener, the chef and the Aquatics shop assistant. THE GARDEN CENTRE AND GROUND LEVEL DETAILS The main garden centre area of the store is situated on the ground level. Outside on the street, I've included a tree, bench and lots of plants and flowers for sale. The garden centre also has a fruit and veg stall that sells it's produce directly to passers by on the street. Inside the shop I've included the cashier desk and more plants and gardening tools for sale including a little lawn mower side-build. Here is the interior of the fruit and veg stall that is accessed through a door at the back of the cashier desk. A door at the back of the shop leads out in to the main outdoor gardening area. Here I've included a large glass canopy covering rows of tables holding bedding plants. There are also more flowers, pots and other gardening products including a water feature. The stairs at the back of the building lead up to level 2. LEVEL 2 - CAFE/RESTAURANT No garden centre would be complete without its own cafe/restaurant. The cafe on level 2 has a fully equipped kitchen with serving desk and tables and chairs for the minifigs. There is also a small balcony in the cafe that looks out on to the street below. LEVEL 3 - AQUATICS Many garden centres here in the UK also have departments that specialise in pet fish and Aquatics. Bricks & Blooms is no exception and has it's own dedicated Aquatics section on level 3. The Cat below seems to have its eye on the goldfish. The door behind the desk leads out on to a small roof terrace area. FLOWER CART The model also includes a flower cart. THE FINISHED MODEL The picture below shows Bricks & Blooms combined with my other modulars and vehicle MOC's. Left to right they are.
