  1. This is my entry for the Bricklink Designer Program Series 1. It had to be created from bricks within a set palette. So after looking at the bricks available I was inspired towards the idea of a fantasy/adventure airship/blimp. I started with the challenge of the blimp and how to create the correct shape (the easy part) while making it stable and without making it too heavy to be supported by two masts (the hard part!). To stay away from the weight of too many technics and plates as support structure I went with the roll cage (windscreen 64450). And a structure that I think is quite a pretty geometry. I liked it so much I wanted it to be a feature rather than an interior support, so this changed the blimp to a dirigible. The ship body has an interior cabin with Murphy bed and kitchenette, front wheelhouse and back luggage compartment as part of the build. It can sit on the table both on or off the stand. The bricks used in the built model are accurate to the Studio design however the colours of them are about 95% there. Mostly due to inability to source them (rare or above budget). And of that 5% the majority of it is in the interior. In the final design you will not be able to see colours peeking through from lower levels. The most noticeable exterior colour difference is that the 64727 spike around the ship body is light blue grey here but navy in the studio design. Not included in the rendered pictures are 12 stickered pieces (7 unique). Including the title sticker on the 4x4 tile at the base, and stickers upon the 2x4 white oval tiles at the center of each area of the dirigible. There are flexible hoses (part no. 27965) on the brick-built model of which only one is in the Studio model, in an approximate position along the panels of the dirigible. This is due to the part stretching in Studio. For more photos and renders of The Cloud Chaser please visit my Flickr stream: Recreating something built in real life in Studio was a learning challenge! But this has now been built, taken apart and rebuilt so many times to condense the steps and little submodels that I really hope other people will have the chance to build it.

    The Adventure Galleon

    This is a MOC that I designed for Lego Ideas, inspired by the 2009 wave of Lego Pirates sets. The major inspirations behind this set were the new Balloon pieces that were introduced last year in 2016, as well as the fun compact ship that came in the Lego Spongebob set 3817-1, The Flying Dutchman, Circa 2012. However, I did not get past the first 100 votes that I needed to advance to the 6 month grace period to advance. This has not discouraged me from refining the idea for the set, and I plan to re-submit a newer version of the model soon, hopefully with new play features. Since I've last submitted this MOC, it has gone through several major revisions, which I am very eager to share with you in the following weeks.

    Make Love Not War

    This MOC was done by my wife (anabanana) for the contest. She asked me to public this on EB. She will be glad to read your comments. Year 1967 United States under pressure after the Vietnam War. Young couple Judith and Ray travels everywhere on their painted minibus "Volkswagen» (T1 Sumba bus). They are making friends and discovering new cities. The world for them is limitless! Especially because they have their own ... blimp! They deliberately rejected the choice of their fellow students of the Purdue University in Indiana to work for military defense. Instead, they decided to build an airship and go by it, bringing peace to the world. And what should it be? Of course freight! After all, where they can go without their "Volkswagen"? It would be great to control the airship from the bus then the gondola is not necessary. Judith and Ray found many like-minded people, and together airship rose skyward. This cargo airship can lift Judith, Ray and their minivan. The balloon has 4 stabilizers and two propellers. The platform is attached to the four beams that are connected in pairs holding tank with two black wide wire ropes. And there's an interesting feature: the minivan on the flight becomes cockpit. Ray made the controls of Volkswagen to be the controls of the airship by the radio waves.

    Postman (Dirigible)

    This MOC took second place on Zeppelin Battle mini-contest on the site in 2013. Contestants were allowed to use paper for the balloon. Text is taken from the Contest Work: "How can dirigible is being used?" - You can ask me. "To deliver the mail!" - I will answer you. We have got many mail & we will deliver it with style! Let's get chains all over & load the mail! Clear windows to look outside: We have a super-power-engine to pull us: We have got TWO! Here are the tail & wings: They are completely independent & can rotate in any direction: (Everybody want to look "What's inside") Front & middle parts are quite simple: Tail: Tail ropes: Nose is "minimalistic": So it look like with paper on it: I Like this picture! It is like "In motion..." Thank you! P.S. Name "Postman" appears when i began to chain all over. Before chains it was like parcel in the post...
