[MOC] Gothic Cathedral
_TLG_ posted a topic in LEGO TownHello modular building and City fans, I design usually but not exclusively Speed Champions style car models, but I also love gothic cathedrals and therefore I decided to design one to Bricklink Designer Program series 1. It can be supported by a vote here: https://www.bricklink.com/v3/designer-program/series-1/376/Gothic-Cathedral It is not actually based on a real building, but it contains many typical details: lancet arches, double lancet arch windows, a ridge turret, flying buttresses, portals with series of receding planes, rose windows etc., and there is a matching street lamp too. The roof assembly can be removed as one piece and in this case the internal details are visible: there is an altar with a cross, a candle holder, a church tabernacle, a brick built bible, there are benches, an organ, a holy water stoup etc.. The middle door on the facade and the side doors open outward, and work perfectly, the side doors on the facade open inward and they can be opened if the door handle pieces (the taps) are removed, but it is not se easy to close them in this case. It is a studless build, the unnecessary studs are hidden by tiles. When I started the design, the first version included appr. 4600 parts, so I had to optimized and simplified it a bit, but I am still really satisfied with the result. For example it could be very nice if there was trans color plates in the holes of the window fences, but it would mean too much additional parts (and I am also not sure if it is a legal technique). The building instructions guidelines have been followed. It is built from the palette "BDP Series 1", so there are some color and part restrictions. The part 15744 could be awesome as rose window on the facade, but unfortunately it is not available in black or light bluish gray. However, the technic gear 40 tooth works too. The bells could be pearl gold or something similar, but the best available option is the black which is ok. I hope you like my design, I appreciate any feedback.

[MOC] The Black Falcon Embassy
Sarophas posted a topic in LEGO Historic ThemesMy latest MOC, dedicated to my grandfather who recently passed away. Hope you like it. It was custom for the four kingdoms to have an embassy in each others capitals. This made diplomatic work much easier than sending a traditional diplomatic contingent. These embassies quickly became important status symbols for their respective rulers. What had started out as simple townhouses, meant to house a couple of diplomats had since turned into mansions worthy of the wealthiest city-dwelling nobles. This was especially true for the embassy of the Archduchy of Rabenfels, also known as the Black Falcons due to their heraldry depicting a falcon on a blue or yellow background. Rumor has it that the bird is actually a raven or a crow, referring to the their ill-gotten wealth. The embassy is currently governed by the archdukes nephew Alexander Raben, who notoriously neglects traditional diplomatic duties in favor of knightly sport and diplomacy by the sword.
gothic-style Police Station (10217 MOD) with 1940s patrol car MOC
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO TownThis gothic-style building is inspired by 2011 Harry Potter set 10217 - Diagon Alley, specifically the Borgin and Burkes shop. Before I get started, thanks for these rendered pictures of my model goes to my brother for converting them all into Stud.io for me. They look really awesome with the printed / missing parts from LDD added back in! Anyway, this building will serve as my town's 1940's-set police station. It was heavily expanded from it's original form to have a second story and back wall. It also has hinges (like in the old Medieval Market Village - set 10193) to allow for it to open up to 90 degrees to access the inside. The building's design also features a tower, three fireplaces on one chimney flue, and staircase to the upper floor. Sadly, the attic has no room for any staircase leading to it. This model will serve as my police station on my town, and as such has a jail cell, "wanted" board, two desks and a weapons storage area by the back door. There is also a breakaway exterior wall section in the cell to bust the bad guys out! The patrol car model is heavily modified from this Rebrickable MOC's free instructions. I will have two of these cars to go with the police precinct. I plan on buying three regular 1940's-style officers and one Chief from the Police Station modular building - set 10278 for these models as well. The inside seats two figures: one officer as the driver, and one suspect in the back. That's a bout all for this building for now. I've found about 680 of 1,092 parts for the project, (minus the vehicles and figs) so it could be built relatively soon. Thoughts, anyone?
[MOC] The Great Temple of Ulric
Sarophas posted a topic in LEGO Historic ThemesMy latest creation, The Great Temple of Ulric. It's not 100% accurate to the description, but I still think it turned out alright. also included Ar-Ulric Emil Valgeir. Hope you like it Ulric's holiest site is the legendary Fauschlag, known also as the Ulricsberg. In ancient days, the greatest of the gods were Ulric and Taal; the mightiest and most widely worshipped. Yet Ulric was troubled, for it seemed that his elder brother came before him in all things. To Taal he voiced this concern, and the Lord of the Forests asked his brother what would put his mind at ease. Ulric replied that he desired a domain that he could say that belonged to him and him alone. Taal considered this request and decided to grant his younger brother's request. He gifted Ulric with a great mountain surrounded by harsh forests filled with fierce beasts. Pleased with this, Ulric thanked his elder brother and smote the mountaintop flat with his mighty fist. Here, he declared, would his chosen people, the Teutogens, abide and build a mighty fortress and temple, where his fires would burn eternally and men would journey far and wide to pay him tribute. Thus was born the Fauschlag, which in the tongue of the Teutogens, means 'Fist-Strike.' <a href="https://warhammerfantasy.fandom.com/wiki/Cult_of_Ulric" rel="noreferrer nofollow">warhammerfantasy.fandom.com/wiki/Cult_of_Ulric</a>
[MOC] Brussels Town Hall
Lasse posted a topic in LEGO TownI have built this LEGO model of Brussels Town Hall. Brussels Town Hall is built in 1401-1455 in Gothic style. It is located on the famous Grand Place in Brussels, Belgium. It is the only remaining medieval building of the Grand Place and is considered a masterpiece of civil Gothic architecture and more particularly of Brabantine Gothic. Here is a photo of the real building from when I visited Belgium last summer:

[MOC] Chartres Cathedral
soccerkid6 posted a topic in LEGO Historic ThemesThis was built for a college assignment, where we had to make some sort of visual art. Of course I chose to do something with LEGO, and used it as an opportunity to recreate Chartres Cathedral. The Abbey of St. Piat was not included in my rendition. It took 16 hours to complete, and weighs 4.6 pounds. This is my first cathedral, and it was quite a fun project. You can see more pictures on brickbuilt. Thanks for looking, feedback always appreciated
[Figurine/Render] Bloodborne - Hunter
The Mugbearer posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesArise from the deepest dream A haven in a haze The howls and the sickly screams they fade… Pale blood will guide your way Embrace the changes and be consumed Bleak bells that chime dismay Echo the cries of the paleblood moon! —Miracle of Sound, “Paleblood Moon” (source) [Render] Bloodborne - Hunter by Artemiy Karpinskiy, on Flickr The Hunter is a main protagonist/player character from an action RPG "Bloodborne" developed by FromSoft Gaming studio. I took inspiration from one of the basic Hunter outfits, using this image of an official Bloodborne statue as a reference. The weapon they wield is a so-called saw cleaver that, as all weapons in the game, can be transformed from a hacksaw-like weapon into a massive two-handed blade. * * *Now folks remember, if you like what I do and you want to see me create your OC, a favorite Bionicle Character, or something else, feel free to look up my Commission Info!

City Police Precinct - 10937 / 76057 modular MOD
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO TownI decided to turn Arkham Asylum (set 10937) into my town's police station by adding a back half to the building and a bunch more regular City stuff, not just Super-hero related items. It features a police car (inspired by the Taxi in set 76057: Ultimate Bridge Battle) and two modular-style floors full of normal police station stuff, from detective desks and the commissioner's desk on the second floor and dispatching center and jails cells on the first floor. Even a coffee machine is included in the break room! The top floor is supposed to feature a clock with this print where the blank 4 x 4 dish is: clock 4 x 4 dish link while the front of of the station is supposed to say POLICE PRECINCT in printed 1 x 1 tile letters above the front door. The rear of the station features the chimney flue for the fireplaces on each floor. The bottom floor features a waiting room with secretary desk in the middle of the room, with jail cell on the right. The left features a dispatching center and equipment locker. Also, next to the stairs is a "most wanted" board. The upper floor features the detectives desks with their computers (and coffee cups!) while the middle of the layout features the break room with coffee machine and table + chairs. The far left of the floor features a private office for the police chief. This car is inspired by the Taxi in set 76057: Ultimate Bridge Battle. The 80's style patrol car features a light bar on top and can seat one figure as the driver. The rear of the car features some pretty cool SNOT work for the trunk and rear brake-lights. I will be building this eventually if I can keep the costs down. Until then, here is the LDD file for the car and station: LDD file link I grouped everything separately in the file, so it should be easy to modify.
Small Railway Headquarters building - Gothic style 10217 MOD
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO TownThis building is inspired by 2011 Harry Potter set 10217 (Diagon Alley), specifically the Borgin and Burkes shop that is technically not on Diagon Alley in the HP universe. (it is instead of a neighboring street where evil wizards / witches dwell) Here is the front of the building. The number "1887" goes on the four studs above the middle second floor windows using printed number tiles. That year was the year the building was built, by the way. The new rear half of the building features a back door and a couple windows. This model will serve as my fictional railroad's headquarters on my town, and as such has a miniature model railroad inside. (just for the heck of it) The building also features a tower, two story fireplace, and staircase to the upper floor. The lack of other interior furnishings is intentional, as I haven't been able to think of a single piece of early to mid 1900's furniture for the offices of the railway president and the accompanying secretary. The building has hinges to allow for it to open up to 90 degrees, but no further due to the wall ornaments being in the way. As usual, the building is locked together by a friction-less Technic pin to allow for easy opening and shutting. The original building from set 10217 has 14 dark green windows I need for a updated train (seen here: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=138020 ), so this building will be built sooner rather than later, probably next month, if possible. (I really don't know, as I'm juggling about five possible next-builds at the moment. All will be built eventually, but whatever's next I don't know for sure!) Comments, Questions, and Complaints are always welcome, plus the LDD file for the entire model is available here: http://www.moc-pages.com/user_images/80135/1471631763m.lxf Thanks for viewing! UPDATE 8/19/16: The buildings was an odd number of studs long, which was causing problems. I have since fixed that, and as such the LDD file and pictures have been updated.

WIP MOC: modular gothic cathedral
Martin_B posted a topic in LEGO Historic ThemesHey, all. It's been a while. I moved during the summer and my Lego collection sat in a cupboard for a while, so I only just got the bug again. After a Technic scale futuristic jet plane last year, I decided on a more 'traditional' architecture-related project this time around. It's early days but I'm doing a minifig scale medieval cathedral in the European gothic style. My main source of inspiration is the Kolner Dom in Cologne but for obvious reasons I'm having to make a few compromises - even at minifig scale, it would be physically too large to fit in my living room! I hit on the idea of doing it in a 'modular' fashion: minifig scale, with more detail than the commercially-produced Castle-era Lego sets but still smaller and made in sections. I reckon it'll be around a third of the size of, say, Notre Dame or Cologne from a minifig's point of view. Photos so far are on Google Plus...I'll add them to Flickr or something when each phase is completed. So far I've worked out the general floor plan, the cross-section shape of the nave and side aisles and the general shape of the buttresses outside. Apologies if any of the technical terms go over you head - I've had to give myself a crash course in architecture and engineering! The question I have right now is about the side-aisles (Re: the cross-section pic below). Church buildings of that era have a big span across the tall central area, but in the larger ones the lower side aisles are each divided into pairs of arches like this. I'm currently working to a simpler design with the side aisles made up of just one arch each, so I'm torn between a more conventional 'three arches' layout that's easier to build, or a more complicated arrangement of five, as in Cologne or Notre Dame. It's something I need to decide before going any further. Thoughts? Advice? Is this thread even in the right forum?? Anyhow, it's good to be back and feeling inspired to build something again!
MOC - Bakery
Bennemans posted a topic in LEGO TownHi all! JUST WANTED TO QUICKLY SHOW YOU ALL… oh geez, caps lock… ahem…. Just wanted to quickly show you all my bakery, THE place to get your cookies, cakes, jams and breads in my town. I've just rebuild it seeing as I wasn't completely happy with the previous one. In advance I apologize for the quality of the photos, I don't have a good camera. So here we go! The (to me) most important part is the bakery shop of course. I'm gonna order new (non-scratched) transparent curved panels to replace the ones in this window. Lots of shades of browns in here! Stuck a pretzel to the sign with a piece of tape, but just temporarily; I hope to find a nice sticker to take its place soon. I love how the table of homemade jams turned out! The top of the building has a heavy, almost gothic feel to it, with dark colors and lots of ornaments. The roof is based on Dutch stepped gables. Inside the bakery we have lots of baked goods on display, and a semi-open kitchen with a large oven and everything the baker needs to create his delicious plastic goodies. There is a restroom under the stairs. Upstairs is the apartment. First we have the kitchen and lounge. Second is a kids room and bathroom. Top floor is the main bedroom, with a balcony. Some more overviews: Thanks for having a look!
