    New Century Corner III

    The third block of my series of Art Nouveau/Jugendstil modulars: The yellow building is called Kotiharju house. It is inspired by Eol in Helsinki's Katajanokka. It was work of Gesellius-Lindgren-Saarinen studio in 1903, when they were the most renowned architects in Finland. I took the form of strong, malleable plasted building by rounding the corners with gapless SNOT techniques; it took quite a lot of parts but looks clean and is very stable. My version is not exact copy, though. I wish the bay window on the left looked more solid, but it's hard to make compact bay windows with angled window panels. The olive green building is called Kallioperä. The main inspiration is work of Gustaf Estlander who is more famous as a yatch designed, but was very active architect in Helsinki between 1901 and 1910. The round double portal is straight from Estlander's work. The grey natural stone details are inspired by famour works of Gesellius-Lindgren-Saarinen: Finnish National Museum and Pohjola Insurance Company. The shaping of the robust bay windows refers to Grahn-Hedman-Wasastjerna's works around Helsinki and the triangular "stone church" portal to Von Essen-Kallio-Ikäläinen's Norma in Katajanokka. This modular was made in two parts, the corner in spring 2019 for Hupicon exhibit, and the rest this spring. The third building, Primrose building, is more international. It is inspired by Viennese Secession and its applications that were well known in Finland at the time. The main source is Jungmann Square 1 building in Prague, but most of the neo-baroque details are left out to capture simpler, more elegant feel akin to Otto Wagner's work. Female masks with flowing hair were usual in Prague Art Nouveu but rare in Finland. They make a mental connection to my character builds. This one is quite complicated technically; especially the turrets are interesting complexes of SNOT techniques. There is more on my blog, including my own source photos of actual buildings referred. Thanks!
  2. I am writing a 4,000 word IB Extended Essay research paper on LEGO. I am examining TV adverts, catalogs and the latest website. However, I have to run into the dilemma of finding 4 more catalogs IN FINNISH from the past 5-10 years. Would someone be able to help me out with some of their own or redirect me? Preferably digital pathways to be used as I am running on short time. Thank you.

    MOC: Finnish hobbies

    Sauna and an ice hole in the lake. Finnish people have some strange hobbies. One of these is swimming in the ice hole. After the short visit in freezing water it’s time to go to sauna, where usual temperature is about 70-100 degrees Celsius. We crazy Finns…
  4. Hello people of EB, this is my first post here. So, this is an army truck used by the Finnish military. The building process took about a month for me. The drive motor is of course an XL-motor, which is hooked up to Sariel's 2-speed trial truck gearbox. I'm sure you can find it on his site. Shifting gears works with remote control, and so do drive and steering of course. Inside the gearbox are the gears 12/20 and 16/16. One XL-motor has plenty of torque to drive this thing, especially with the V2-receiver. Both axles have 3-link live axle suspension. Front axle has hard yellow shocks, and rear axle has soft red shocks, for obvious reasons. The real truck has leaf springs, but as you all know they are rather silly to do with Lego. The steering M-motor is sitting on top of the front axle and is geared 8/40. The doors can be opened and the 5-cylinder engine in the cabin is attached to the XL-motor. The real Sisu has a 6-cylinder engine, but I couldn't fit that. At the rear of the truck you can find a spare tire, which is a lot smaller than the other tires due to lack space and saving weight. Sorry for the bad pictures :/
