  1. Here we go! Was late to the party so I had less "choices" and lack of blue. I ended up picking the 8448. Not sure which body style to do, as the set has the option to build different styles. This set is large enough to be able to add modern touches. Like an 8 speed transmission, paddle shifter, and a smoother body. It's easier when you can make the original. In trying to keep it close to the original design and layout while adding the modern features is still proving hard. I had remake the transmission like six times to fit in the original chassis layout. This was the third to last transmission. But so far it's coming together! Still lots of work to go, but it's been raining in Florida so I got time to work on it.
  2. I couldn't sit this contest out. It pulls on my nostalgic strings too much, so know I had to participate. I started with a list of 32 sets that I wanted to consider. Some were immediately thrown out for lack of interest (6537, 6615, 6524, 6590, 8836, 6698, 6669, 8835, 5541, 8286, 5935, 6331, 8839, 6646, 6334, 6670, 8840, 8872, 8280). I had a top thirteen, and started throwing more out for various reasons (How do I do the canopy of 6887, 6542 and 6541 would be too big to do them justice today, 8880 is too sacred to do well, how do I do the motorcycle of 6354 or the cars of 6337 and 6335 (I'm watching you close @mpj)). Some I would like to do at another time (6344, 8858, the helicopter of 8062). Finally I came down to three that I created a MOC up for: 6357, 8855, and 8854. I may still do one of the others at another time, but for now I am going to focus on 8854, unless I run into problems. The set is iconic, well loved, and the right size. I am going to keep the scale pretty close (1.07:1), and I'll keep all the features. At this point, I plan to add a fake engine and suspension to the features 8854 already has (steering, outriggers, boom slewing, boom lift, boom extension, winch). I was hoping to have more done by now, but I guess it took me a while to decide on which set to do. It's pretty rough right now, but I have the size set, and a schematic of where all the mechanical parts are going to go. We'll see how this goes....
  3. Hi everyone, this is my going to be entry to the studless rebuilding contest. I’m too young to remember the classic Technic sets, so I chose one of my oldest and favourite sets, 6774 Alpha Team ATV from 2001. The scale is going to be as close to 2:1 as possible, using the larger track links. I am also going to try and match the colours and shapes of the bricks used for the internal structure. The originals functions will be replicated, with opening cockpits, hidden lights, winch, and removable ladder/catapult thing. Imitating the cockpits will be tricky, I’ll probably just do an outline with technic connectors due to a lack of trans-dark blue pieces in the right shapes. Below is a comparison between the original set and the chassis so far.
  4. I have started building the 8846 Tow truck studless remake for the "[TC20] Technic Studless Recreation Contest" I have started with the front axle: As you can see, I will use a bit wider tires, also It will be one stud wider, so it will be 13, not 12 studs wide. Then, I have built the rear axle, and almost finished the chassis. This is all progress for now, more in next post.
  5. Deadline extended to 6th of June, anywhere in the world. May the 4th be with you, always! Celebrate the unique Star Wars universe with us by entering the Eurobricks SW Concept Art Contest. One of the things that makes the Star Wars universe so recognizable is its visual style. Artists like Ralph McQuarrie and Doug Chiang set the stage for the galaxy we know and love through their concept art sketches that have caught the eye of George Lucas, Jon Favreau and other Star Wars film makers. For this contest take a Star Wars concept art piece or a specific scene from a movie or show and turn it into a Lego MOC! You can take a large scene like this famous one from Ralph McQuarrie: Or you can go simpler like this cargo ship built from a rough sketch by John Giang: You can also do a cut-away shot of a vehicle or a freeze-frame recreation from a specific moment! You can use one of the "Art of Star Wars" books like those pictured in the background of the announcement photo. Or you can find a picture online to use as a reference. Googling Ralph McQuarrie and Doug Chiang will give you a lot of results. But you can also look up articles like these from StarWars.com or these. If you want to recreate a scene directly from a movie/show you can use the Visual Guide or Visual Dictionary books like this one or this one. Please include a link or picture of your reference material in your entry. Rules Only one entry per person. There is no maximum or minimum size limit. The contest will run from 4th May to 4th June 6th June, 2021. As long as it's still June 4th somewhere in the world, you can still enter. Entries posted after the deadline will be disqualified. This contest is open to all EB members, even if they joined EB after the contest has begun, with the exception of the Star Wars staff, who are not eligible to win prizes. All entries must be new creations, not posted anywhere else prior to being entered in the contest. You may be asked by a staff member to change your entry if it is too similar to an earlier creation. All entries must be built from real LEGO. No clone brands, no third-party custom parts. Digital entries will be allowed. All digital entries must use only existing pieces in existing colors. All entries must be posted as a new topic in the Watto’s Junkyard forum, the title prefixed by, "[Concept Art] - entry name". (For example, "[Concept Art] – Street Showdown".) A link should be included in this thread for your entry to count. You may do a 'full-blown photo edit' with all the text, effects, background compositing, support erasing, and other effects on one picture. All your other pictures may have no editing other than color adjustment or background removal for a solid-color background. For obvious reasons, any photo editing that changes the shape, functionality, or color (not tint or adjustment, but actual color) of a LEGO piece is prohibited. It is also prohibited to use the Lego logo in any picture. All entries are considered WIPs (Works In Progress) until the deadline passes. Until the deadline has passed, you are allowed to change and improve your MOC. The winners will be decided by EB members voting. Prizes First place will win their pick of 75306 Probe Droid or 75305 Scout Trooper Helmet or 75304 Darth Vader Helmet Second place will win their pick of the 2 sets remaining Third place will win the remaining set

    [MOC] SEASIDE MEMORIES

    Hi everyone I wanted to share my latest creation called "Seaside Memories". It's a little beach scene inspired by my childhood holidays at the British Seaside. The model contains less than 250 bricks and is built on a 16 x 16 plate. I've included 2 traditional beach huts and striped deck chairs, sandcastles, a picnic on the sand and much more. Everything you need for a fun day out at the beach. The beach huts both feature simple interiors details. I entered this model in to a recent LEGO IDEAS contest to design a seaside themed set. I'm really pleased to say that today it has been chosen as one of the 15 finalists in the contest. It's now down to a public vote to decide the winner and if this model wins it will be made in to a future gift with purchase LEGO set. If you like the look of the model then I'd be hugely grateful if you could give it your vote on LEGO IDEAS. Voting is open until 25th May. https://bit.ly/Legoseaside Anyway thanks for checking out my latest MOC and feel free to let me know what you think.
  8. Hi everyone, On LOWLUG is a Castle contest from beginning of March till the end of April. There are 5 categories in this contest. Vignet Flora Battle/Duel Village life Headquarters I've build several MOC's for this contest. I'll share them in this topic. Vignet - Classic Castle This is the only Classic Castle minifig I have. It was suitable to use for a vignet. Vignet - Knights Kingdom II A young Vladek is at the small gate of the Black Fortress. Duel - Knights Kingdom This is the duel between Cedric the Bull and Princess Storm. Flora - Fantasy Just a small scene with more focus on plants and trees. For this build I used a Magenta baseplate. Inspiration for this build came from the album cover of a Melodic Death Metal band called Black Forest with the album Dream. Flora - Forestmen Of course I've had to build a Forestmen MOC for this contest. The Forestmen are in the forest for hunting. They have spotted a deer. Headquarters - Lion Knights Photo is a bit too bright. Sorry for that. Lion Knights are leaving the city. Some people are in the street getting the usual stuff. In the alley are a few spies of the Dragon Knights. For more pictures, please look into my Flickr Album. Feedback is appreciated.

    Undead bonsai tree

    Here is my vision for the official Lego bonsai for the competition organised by Brickset : Zombillénium Bonsai Tree by Stephle59, sur Flickr No leaves here, just the dead trunk, in its pot, decorated with a few graves. The support consists of the white horns, which gives a small insectoid shape to the dark purple semi-rounded pot.
  10. **EDIT: New images here ** This is my entry for the LDD/LDraw Contest 2014 free build category. Since I always dreamed of traveling the world in something like this I created a LEGO version: the roof can be lifted while the truck is parking. The truck carries a motorbike on the back. The roof is walkable and can be used as a terrace =) Of course it has a comfortable interiour. The truck has two bedrooms (one in the roof). In case of a zombie apocalypse it has some flick fire missiles hidden behind the front bumper ;-). Here is the LDD File. Best regards marv

    [IDEAS] [MOC] multi sports set

    This is my first LEGO Ideas contest submission. Concept: one set to create multiple sports (more than shown here) so you can always build any sport you and your friends like with just one set, and start playing. The field is modular so you can I hope you'll love it, and will vote for it if you like it. Thanks! https://ideas.lego.com/s/ca:68a77abdd25247acb9f590a999774b55
  12. It's been ages since I've joined a contest here on EB. Luckily, seems the time and other circumstances are just right and I've never built a motorbike MOC before, so this contest realy tickled me. I am not much of WIP topics guy, but it seems that people here mostly like WIP topics, so here is what I've managed so far... who knows where and what this will end up to be... we'll see I guess. Not sure if I'll be able to cram something soficticated in its belly... not to much space I'm affraid. Best regards and Merry Christmas everybody!

    Kalmar Nyckel - LEGO Contest, ends in March 2021

    Hi, yesterday i was searching for pictures of the "Kalmar Nyckel" for my WIP Moc "Parrot". There i a website of this Ship, the "Kalmar Nyckel" https://www.kalmarnyckel.org/Index.asp On this website i found a page with a Lego Contest ending on March 1st 2021. https://www.kalmarnyckel.org/dy.asp?p=227 There are 3 Categories: 1. Build a ship with bricks in real. 2. Build a ship with the Studio 2.0 Software 3. Build the Kalmar Nyckel or the USS Delaware Attack Submarine. This Ship will then be used by Kids on all Shipbuilding Days. (Only Summarize, more info on the Website) There is also the opportunity to build spaceship on the first 2 categories. Dont know how active the Space Theme is on eurobricks. Maybe i also post it there. I myself will try to build a Ship on Studio, maybe not the Kalmar Nyckel. Would be a bit too advanced for me, at this point. Would love to see some Models made by you. And i think there is some who could make an awesome representation of the Kalmar Nyckel.
  14. The Colossal Castle Contest 18 (CCC XVIII) has been announced. Check out the categories and prizes. The contest is open from now until January 10, 2020. I am not affiliated with the CCC, just a fan. Mods, let me know if this post violates the "Selling, self promotion and promoting" rule.
  15. Hi, all my friends here! I just posted a contribution on Lego Ideas. That's a cute and creative Lego jet- plane set. Check it out! If you like it, please support it on the official Lego Ideas website https://ideas.lego.com/projects/8f441604-87c1-4768-a5d7-cad0c014fb6a to help me make it real. For getting this set actually into the Lego market, I need to gather at least 10,000 supports. Thank you for your interest and support, and don't forget to share it to your friends!
  16. May the 4th be with you! The galaxy is a big place. Beings and cultures of every shape, size, and flavor exist everywhere you go! And while we've seen either too much of the politics of Star Wars (Ep. 2) or too little (Ep. 7), we've barely scratched the surface of seeing the ways various cultures manage to survive from day-to-day. We've seen moisture farmers, Cantina bar-tenders, blue krill farmers, Klatooinian grog makers, Kessel miners, coaxium refiners and many others. But there are so many other ways an economy thrives in the Star Wars universe! Show something we've already seen or come up with something new that fits within the Star Wars universe. There is only 1 category this year. But there will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. We had some challenges getting Lego to sponsor prizes this year so they are a little smaller. There is a chance that the prize pool could increase so check back for updates! To enter you must build a MOC that shows economy happening within the Star Wars universe. Your build should showcase something that helps a group of people survive from day-to-day. This needs to involve more than just an average citizen at his 9-5 office job. Beyond that it's up to you! As always, if you have questions feel free to ask. Rules Only one entry is allowed per person. There is no maximum or minimum size limit. The contest will run from 4th May to 15th June, 2020. As long as it's still June 15th somewhere in the world, you can still enter. Entries posted after the deadline will be disqualified. This contest is open to all EB members, even if they joined EB after the contest has begun, with the exception of the Star Wars staff, who are not eligible to win prizes.

  18. Hi Here is my dream Porsche. It features and combines 3 of my favorite things of Porsche: The front V8 TT engine and front bumper of Panamera Turbo S The 911 shape The RSR look and feel The result is this. Hope you (and judges ) like it Features. 1:10 Scale RWD and Fake V8 engine 4 Speed Gearbox with remote stick Independent suspension in the 4 wheels Working Steering Wheel (No HOG) Openable hood and doors (With lock system) Adjustable seats with gears Big Spoiler (Like the RSR models) Miscellaneous things like hand bag, lights etc. *Surprise feature* Removable V8 engine and transmission like a car About the last feature, well, I'll show it later in another pics and video. (I haven't had time to take more pics) Here are the pics of the last feature Making this function was the most difficult of the model, because it must be work smooth in every gear and I must find the proper joint points in the gearbox to the chassis. Also it must be easy to remove without bending or forcing the rest of the car. After many tests, I achieved it. More pics of the car This photo scream for the bigger Steering wheel (Sadly I don't have it yet) More pics and video will come soon The full gallery https://www.flickr.com/photos/137229326@N08/albums/72157668154949314 Video. The car was completed some days ago, but I decided to post it as my 100 post here, in the greatest Lego community

  23. This model was the result of a choice I had to make. I could either come up with an entry for the Eurobricks small car contest, or I could enter the TLCB Lockdown Competition. I really didn't feel inspired to make a small car, so I went with making a C model. I chose 42098, largely because of the fact that it was the only set I hadn't started to mix into my large collection. Initially, I was going to build some kind of wheeled vehicle, but then I hit a real builder's block. At that point, I was looking at the small wheel arches, and thought that it looked kind of like the bottom parts of an attack helicopter cockpit. After I realized that, I made the cockpit section, and got going from there. This helicopter is ultimately a nonesuch, and combines design elements from a number of real and fictional helicopters, including the Hellhound helicopter from Patlabor 2, and a design I found on Deviantart called the Fujin, which was designed by MeganeRid, The rotors spin, obviously, but they also have collective pitch control, which was very hard to implement given the parts available in the set. 42098 includes a shockingly small selection of gears and other technical bits, so I had to get very creative. The rotors are at their lowest position in this picture. The collective does not use a turntable, but instead uses a brick built solution that hearkens back to the very first Technic helicopter, set 852. The actual control for this function is a lever with a red bushing, on the right of the photo. This is the blades at maximum pitch, which better shows the collar that is used to simulate a swash plate. The second most major function is the complex landing gear. A 12z gear at the end of both wings controls this function, which uses worm gears to prevent the gear from collapsing. The first pic shows the gear retracted for flight, the second and third show the gear down for landing. The last set of functions relate to the gun pod, mounted under the fuselage. The pod can be traversed 90 degrees to either side, and will clear the landing gear towers. This is controlled by a 12z gear located behind the air intakes. The gun will also elevate from horizontal to almost vertical, using a knob on the back of the pod. An underbelly view, showing the gun pod, as well as part of the rotor drivetrain. The rotor is spun by the 2 12z gears on the tail. The gun pod, up close. The rubber connectors on the forward fuselage are actually a travel lock, and can hold the gun in place when not in use. Maximum elevation. Or is this depression? I can't decide how you'd define this. On the tarmac. The landing gear do work, but I also built a stand so that this heli can be posed as if in flight, with the gear retracted. Some up close pictures: This detail is actually important. As most of you have probably noticed, this helicopter has no tail rotor, and is not coaxial, so what gives? My vision is that a real version of this helicopter would use a NOTAR system, which uses a ducted fan to effectively replace a tail rotor. That's what the large vents on the tail are supposed to be for. Now, in terms of scale, this model is quite large. CamelHog the hedgehog and Spam for scale. One last beauty shot: The color scheme may not be very military, but I'd chalk that up to this being an airshow/display team livery. All in all, I am quite happy with this model, it was a real challenge to make in the limits of the parts I had, so much so was actually running out of 3L pins, but it came together nicely, and the color scheme actually worked out a lot better than I expected it to. Now, on to the contest. Stay safe out there, folks. P.S. I'll give a shout out to the first person who is able to guess where the manufacturer's name of this heli came from.
  24. Y'monoce Market is a bustling bazaar in the Outer Rim. Located on a desert planet, it serves as a central trading outpost to the surrounding worlds. No matter whether you're looking to buy or sell, whatever it is you're looking for, you'll likely find it here. Walking down the cobbled streets, you'll see fruit, BBQ Porg, Mon Cala seafood, Toydarian toys, antiques, slaves, droids, spice, and everything in between. Many credits and goods are exchanged here every day, keeping the economy going. Here you can see a typical day at the market, circa 3-4 ABY. On the left, there is a slave seller with attractive females from different species and males from species that the Galactic Empire has classified as "primitive". Bib Fortuna has come to the market looking for a prize for his master Jabba the Hutt and he has set his sights on Oola. He says: "This one!" as he points at her with a devious smile. A Kaadu carrying new wares passes by as the Klatooinian slaver approaches Oola with his lightwhip. Meanwhile, a shrill voice can be heard from the back: "Disa big misunderstandins! Mesa bombad senator, mesa no slave!" Next to the slave stand, a Jawa is having an argument with a stormtrooper. He is trying to convince him that the Imperial droid that he is selling was acquired through completely legal means, though the trooper remains skeptical. It's quite ironic that the Empire is concerned about their own droids being stolen, but not that there is slavery going on right next door. Next to them, a Gamorian is roasting porgs and womprats over a pit. On the other side, you can see a Toydarian toymaker selling action figures and balls as well as a scavenger selling Jedi relics she found. Remember when Maz made a big mystery out of how the heck she ended up with Luke's lightsaber in her possession? Well, turns out she simply found it at a bazaar and just decided to buy it on a whim. In the midst of the crowds, some stormtroopers are looking for a rebel spy who is hiding in a barrel nearby. A cloaked figure tells the troopers where the rebel is hiding in exchange for some credits. Nearby, a Nautolan is buying some seafood from a Mon Calamari fisherman. Speaking of rebels, Hera is also here. She has come to buy some "Meiloorun fruit" from Hondo - which is actually code for "smuggled weapons". You see, Hondo's latest scheme involves smuggling contraband weapons inside of fruit crates and selling them at the market here. The back of his store is loaded with blasters and other equipment that will be useful for Hera and the rebellion. Above Hondo's shop is a cantina where the merchants can come up to relax at the end of the day and spend their earned credits on food, drinks, and entertainment. The cantina owner, who you can see pouring drinks at the bar, can then spend those credits at the market below to keep his fridge stocked, and thus the the economic cycle continues. The guests on the patio are enjoying food and drinks while a dancer is a earning her credits performing for a Devaronian inside the building. A bridge connects the cantina building with a small shop on the other side which is run a dug and sells different kinds of spice. He who controls the spice controls, well... the spice. Over the spice shop, a certain Mandalorian is earning his credits by getting ready to shoot his latest target who had come to the market in hopes of losing the bounty hunter in the crowds, but no such luck. I hope you like it, and may the deals be with you!

    [MOC] The Bear's Fortress

    Hi everyone, At LowLUG was a member, who wanted to see more Castle at the forum and he wanted to build Castle. He started a contest on the forum. The rules were simple, build a Castle on a 32x32 baseplate. This fortress is located in the mountains. There is a small tunnel that leads to the tower. The knight known as 'the Bear' is preparing the men for an attack. Sorry for the background, I am looking for a replacement. For more pictures please look into my Flickr album. Sander
