  1. Hello everyone,This is our latest project, the Main Square of Crema, a town in the Northern part of Italy. We represented the Cathedral (2016, see Discussion), the facade of the Palace of the Bishop (2018, in yellow), part of the City Hall (2018, with the tower and some interior). We are aware that the buildings need lots of improvements, concering both structure and quality details, but for now we didn't want to devote all of our time to this work and so this is a beta version which we hope to improve in the next years. We decided to add a Christmas atmosphere to the layout (forgive some improper clothes :P), but the idea is to transform it in a rainy layout, something quite uncommon. The whole MOC is made up of about 17.000 LEGO bricks. I add to this post some pictures of the city, so that you can compare them to the model. More pictures on Flickr.I will add some better when I have time to organize an adequate photo setting. Every suggestion is definitely welcome; we hope you will like our MOC! :)Thanks for reading,FBros

    [MOC] Athletics Track

    Hello everyone! :) This is a project begun in 2016, freely inspired by an athletics track in the north of Italy. It's populated by friends and people - some of them are ordinary, others are so odd - that used to train or work there. As now, the MOC is in a minifig scale. The track combines bricks in different orientations and some techniques (e.g. the numbers before the finish line) to make it detailed and realistic as much as possible. It's also modular to make it easy to transport and, above all, easy to continue. The current version consists of about 3700 bricks, but we're already designing the curved section. We hope this MOC can interest you and, in case you like it, keep updated following us on Flickr! FBros

Nowadays, we're working on the adjacent square, with the goal to complete it in a few years. We will be posting updates very soon. As for the MOC itself, we chose a 1:75 scale, so that it could be populated with minifigs, without being too huge and expensive. The Cathedral consists of about 9600 bricks. Some techniques were inspired by others' works, while some were developed for the purpose of maintaining the most possible similarity to the real Cathedral. Hope you will enjoy! Every suggestion is welcome! FBros

    [MOC] A Summer In Tuscany

    A Summer In Tuscany Hello guys! I've been fairly present in the forums lately, but haven't released a MOC in about seven months, so it's about time! A Summer In Tuscany by Pau Padrós, en Flickr This is “A Summer in Tuscany”, packing 4497 pieces, mimicking the sizes of Assembly Square and towering 33.6 cm (13 inches) tall. There’s a certain je-ne-sais-quoi that some wonderful modulars capture, and I wanted to capture some of that in mine as well. What better place to look for it than Italy, then? Inspired mostly on the buildings and summery atmosphere of the Emilia-Romagna (I know the name doesn’t say that…) – Piacenza, Parma, Modena and Bologna, to name a few. A Summer In Tuscany Side by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Another point of view on the two façades. Vines climbing up walls and fences, flags being blown by the soft breeze. Gelato signorina? Have one at Giolitti! Have fun looking for references hidden throughout the whole model! PD: Genie’s lamp as decoration on the yellow building The Orange Building: A Summer In Tuscany: Orange Building by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Fun and reckless! Orange isn't the safest colour to build a modular out of, and even less when you decide to stick a 45-degree façade on it. Nevertheless, I feel this building is the crazier part of the model and brings that needed extravaganza to make a great modular. The rooftop detailing is subtle but one of my favourites Ground Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Giolitti Gelati by Pau Padrós, en Flickr “Giolitti Gelati” has all the ice-cream flavours one can ask for: Lime, Orange, Olive Pistachio Green or Flame Vanilla Yellow, all wordplays on Lego colour names. Middle Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Le Lampade di Roberto by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Roberto has any lamp you might need in stock. From a Luxo Jr. studio lamp to a cinema focus. Many of the lamps are from Lego’s official modular (not just Palace Cinema's) Top Floor: I'm sorry I didn't take a picture of this, but rendering took way too long and stopped it. Inside is a stained glass artist studio. Fairly cool, huh The Yellow Building: Didn't take a specific shot for this one, as it would be too similar to the second one. It feels like the anchor of the model. (Call me crazy for saying this), but it's the building I played it safest with -and I know it's yellow! . It works as a harmonious counterpart to the Orange building. Adding as shallow dark orange roofing is something I'd been wanting to do since I finished Italian Villa. Desires one by one fulfill themselves, don't they? Ground Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Bike Shop by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Hard at work, trying to fix a greasy bicycle. Through the back door, it leads to a little garden. He’s so concentrated in fact, he hasn’t seen somebody peeking through the window… The same "somebody" who's been secretly placing flowers on the man's outiside bicycles! Middle Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Puppet Theatre by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Shush! The play is about to start. Suitable for kids and adults alike. Curtains closed, phones off. Oh! Forgot we're not in the present! Top Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Astronomers' Club by Pau Padrós, en Flickr As night falls and stars start sprinkling all around the sky, seeing planets is the new black for our ABS friends! One final picture: A Summer In Tuscany's Best Friends by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Magic Shop and Sweets & Co. hugging their new friend and compainion to the modular street. Hope you enjoyed my little tour around my newest model. Drop in any comments (hopefully praises ) or dislikings, of course if you feel like so. Thanks again, have a very very nice day wherever you are in our wounderful world!

    My Modular Buildings - Pau Padrós

    I've, for some time, been making modular buildings. But I feel they haven't ever been posted as a whole, so I thought, why not do it. I'll try to give to background information and all. This might be updated if I create more! Hope you enjoy! My Flickr, just in case!!: https://www.flickr.com/photos/138575523@N07/ 1. Magic Shop Magic Shop was my very first trial at a modular building, believe it or not. If you take a closer look, the first floor could be the base for any other building above, that's because I had no idea what to build on top of that first floor. About a month later, (while in Ikea for some reason) I remembered a trip to the Black Forest, Germany and all its houses, and that's the result. This Magic Shop is absolutely perfect and that's what I love about it. In my first attempt, I nailed shape, proportions and colour. And that triangular roof is incredibly iconic. Such a wonderful modular! Building Period: Nov 2015 - Jan 2016 Pieces: 2598 on a 32x32 baseplate 2. Italian Villa Oh, god this one's exciting! The Italian Villa (or better said: The Tuscan Villa - that doesn't sound as catchy, does it?) is an ode to the highly underused Flame Yellow colour. The design for this beast mostly comes from a scale model of a Vineyard Villa I own - shape and colourwise, but the detailing and the whole rooftop is absolutely original and wonderful. As a fact, I had this design stopped for some weeks as I didn't know how to make the windows on the middle floor right. While visiting a univeristy campus, I found the solution! This has to be one of my two favourite modular buildings of mine, as a funny note, on a Chinese Lego enthusiasts fan page they marked it as Spanish Villa. As I am techinically from Spain I found this rather funny. And Unikitty's tail in white at the roof! Building Period: Jan 2016 - Feb 2016 Pieces: 2148 on a 32x32 baseplate 3. The Iron Horse My dear Iron Horse... I totally adore this modular. After two highly-successful modulars, this had to at least match the others' quality. Not only I think I managed it, but I also created (again) a very unique modular. By the time I designed this thing, I had all the tools and techniques mastered (no weird bricks showing and all) and I could make this trully the result of my imagination. Although its name and basic structure comes from a restaurant in PortAventura theme park, I translated it to Lego and made the façade even more striking than it was in real life. I also took Brick Bank's colour scheme and exploited it at the max. Not many people know this, at the porch's roofline there are rollerskates used in sand green. A detail I've kept for myself for a long time. Building Period: Mar 2016 - May 2016 Pieces: 1886 on a 32x32 baseplate 4. Old Ben's Gallery Old Ben's Gallery, the Lego version of Barcelona's Casa Amatller and Casa Batlló is my most bizarre approach to a modular. I tried to exploid Pet Shop's concept as much as I could, and this was the result. Although a great looking modular without a doubt, it still is my least favourite of them all, there's so much competition though! This was my first trial at making custom printed pieces for completing totally the façade. This was also my first attempt at making smaller windows with porticos, if you look closer at my previous modulars, they all have insanely huge windows. It's good for a change! Building Period: Aug 2016 - Nov 2016 Pieces: 3148 on two 16x16 baseplates 5. Sweets & Co. Oh my!! This absolutely beautiful 45-degree corner modular is the favourite of mine. So many nice shapes, nice colours, nice piece usages. You can tell I adore this thing, don't you? The idea of a 45-degree building came from seeing the corner buildings in Barcelona, where two houses share the corner. The one on the left is inspired by Casa Batlló's patio (see that gradient going up in Aqua against Royal Blue background, so cool right!?) The building on the right went under four rebuilds. Initially is was supposed to be Venice's Palazzo Ducale. When I noticed it didn't fit, I built a white thingy which looked terrible. Next some sort of castle-like thingy, also terrible (thanks brother for pointing out is was terrible!). And finally I created this pattern, so good! Btw, yes, on the pattern the darker blue is the sorta discontinued Dark Turquoise, why not!? On this modular, I snuck some nice part usages, for instance, Indy's whip as dragon tail on the right door's wrought iron fence. Also the dragon head is a discontinued piece from 2003 which only found its way in some Orient Expedition and Knights' Knigdom II sets! Btw, that fence is in copper, also a discontinued colour. I also got to experiment a lot with rooflines on this bad boy. The one on the right is directly inspired by Venice's Palazzo Ducale, a reference to what the building was supposed to be! I would love to build this thing one day, but you know it's hardly impossible with all the discontinued colours and non-exisiting parts in certain colours. Building Period: Jan 2017 - Mar 2017 Pieces: 2994 on a 32x32 baseplate 6. Piazza San Marco Once I finished Sweets & Co., I went on a trip to Italy and one of the stops was Venice. The fact that I couldn't turn the Palazzo Ducale into a modular was still rattling my mind, so I set to build the most faithful recreation of the Campanile and the Palazzo in the modular form. Said and done. This is a huge over-the-top crazy piece of architecture. In fact the tower of the Campanile is 76'8 cm or 30' 2" tall! About the same as the Disney Castle for comparision. Although not my favourite modular it definetely is one of the dearest to my heart. All the details throughout the porch (something I'd wanted to revisit since I finished The Iron Horse, but with arches) are absolutely wonderful, in fact each capital is different from the other. As a reference to the original Italian Villa, the section inside the porch is Cool Yellow. Although hard to see in this picture, the whole façade is covered in a printed pattern (best seen in the section in-between the tower and the palace). Btw, two Sand Green gold ingots are there representing marble, so cool! The rooftop details are incredibly fun to build, surprisingly, and these were the best to build! Building Period: Apr 2017 - May 2017 Pieces: 3700 on a 16x32 and a 32x32 baseplate (same as Assembly Square) 7. A Summer in Tuscany Summer holidays are long, the desire to build a model are high. But what? Something daring, interesting, but with a warm feel to it (the heat was striking hard then!). Heck, I like italian architecture (easy to say... erm... out of eight models, three are entirely dedicated to the country ). So off I went trying to build something in the lines of Assembly Square (that year's modular), but closer to my heart, and let's be honest, less of a mix-match. The model came together pretty quickly, but then DISASTER! While rendering, my computer stopped, and dumb me had not made a copy of the file! Summer was long gone then, but the high spirit made me plough on to finally have it all wrapped up by Februrary of 2018. Having to do the modular all over again obviously means I had extra time to snuck details even the most eagle-observers fans won't find. Has any of you seen a little statuette representing one of those little virigins on the streets? I bet not! (Checks if it's actually there in any of the pictures). Yes. Building Period: Aug 2017 - Feb 2018 Pieces: 4434 on a 16x32 and a 32x32 baseplate (same as Assembly Square) 8. Klee Corner Klee Corner! Pop! A collage of hundreds of different buildings glued together by the man behind the keys (yup, me). If The Iron Horse was a result of my imagination over two years ago, this is me jumbling up together Berlin, Hundertwasser, Bilbao, Gaudí and the "modernist" architects with him and U2. Can you turn music into architecture? Ermmm... Sure! No official 32x32 modular has ever had three buildings. Did that stop me? No. No official modular has ever had a curved façade. Did that stop me? Of course not! As a fun fact, I messed up the colouring of one brick of the model and realised the issue after rendering. I edited and covered it up in Photoshop. Can you even spot it? Very difficult, btw! Building Period: Feb 2018 - May 2018 Pieces: 4481 on a 32x32 baseplate Why Am I Writing This? I've always wanted to have my modulars be seen as a unit, as something that one builds upon the other. Just another way of unifying. I finished another modular recently, but I've only been able to render a picture of it and my computer will just stop if I render another picture. That means that I probably won't be able to do many more modulars and make them look super cool. I will post the new modular when I can, don't worry about it though!! <- This is outdated now! Hope to hear from you guys! Leave your comments, please note this is the work of over 1,5 years, so take this into consideration! Thanks!! Pau
  6. Hey guys! Hope you like this modular/landmark mash-up of Venice's Piazza San Marco! It sits on two 32x32 plates, so it's double a modular building and 16 studs larger than Assembly Square. The most prominent feature definetly is the Campanile. The Campanile stands somewhere around 80cm/20 inches -about the same size as the Disny Castle!-. Next to it sits the Palazzo Ducale, the palace of the dukes, but here it houses a library. This model is so huge I had to cut down on interior space and back walls. The back walls are now just some panels to save pieces. Even though, it still has some 4700. I did overuse a bit the flower stud in white... Aside from that, note that I made specific capitals for each column and I used the ingot in sand green, which looks awesome! The rooftop details are ALWAYS the most fun to build, so here's what I did for this building: window pieces with one of the new pyramid tiles on top! Easy but very effective. Also see the Christmas tree as tile decoration on the street! Hope you like this project as much as I do, and check out my Flickr account for extra pictures! https://www.flickr.com/photos/138575523@N07/ Profile https://www.flickr.com/photos/138575523@N07/35673433765/in/dateposted-public/ Extra Picture

    [MOC] Italian Villa

    Hey it's me, Pau Padrós, you may know me from my Ideas account: https://ideas.lego.c...padros/activity Anyway, I'd like you to be completely honest with what you think. Please don't hesitate to comment. Italian Villa The follow-up to the very successful modular Magic Shop. Designed from January 2016 to February 2016, it resembles a stand-alone villa which was adapted as a townhouse to the ever-expanding city of Paunia. Welcome everyone to the Italian Villa! This is my second modular after Magic Shop (also on Eurobricks: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=133706&hl=). Facts: 2148 bricks 30.5 cm tall (about 12") Flame Yellowish Orange clour scheme Nice vegetation on the side wall Beautiful open area on the top Minifigues & Interior Highlights: All five minifigures with a rather nice street sign, grandfather clock and modern painting You know how I am, suggest new ideas, and of course feel free to write anything you like/dislike about this modular! Thanks for reading! I really appreciate it!
  9. Hello everyone from north Italy (Milan). I'm a fan of LEGO since I was a child and I own some sets. About one month ago I started to design some sets using Lego Digital Designer software and I'm fascinating about it ! As soon as I will finish something I will share with the community !

    [MOC] iveco 480.12 bus

    Hi everyone ! Here is my first MOC, not built yet bust just made with LDD. It is taken from this real bus that has worked all around Milan in 80's years. Well, it is quite a big model but thanks to the big size I could make the opening doors and the steering wheel. It has 4 seats at the back, 3 on the right side (where there are doors), 6 seats on the left side and one driver seat. Before building it I wanted to make the roof opening. Every suggestion is welcomed !
  11. Welcome to the Colosseum in Italy. I fully understand that some AFOLS have already built it and they did a fantastic job. I also love the Colosseum. I would like to build my own but rather I try not to follow the footsteps of my predecessors. Therefore, I try to build it small. To the best of my knowledge, perhaps this is quite original. Only several pieces of basic bricks are used. Instead, the major parts I used are technic bricks, hose, jumpers and binoculars. The building process requires exceptional patience. I have to look for a good curve which finally turns to be imperfect, but I am afraid that is the best I can do. This MOC won't be a LEGO IDEA project. I think TLG won't allow it to become an official set simply because the set is not sturdy. Yes, pieces won't fall out when I move it from one place to another, but it will change shape. I need to readjust the positions of binoculars...
  12. Someone in my LUG asked me to try Urbino - so here it is - dedicated to all Italianos who are on Eurobricks. Ciau!
  13. Hello all, I wanted to share with you my work in progress. I want to build a minifig scale Caserta Palace from Caserta, Italy. The palace looks like this: http://www.visitnapl...rta-990x300.jpg And this is what i've come up with until now (about 15 hours of work). https://www.flickr.c...08/15518544693/ https://www.flickr.c...08/15950826528/ Thanks!
  14. On the 8th-9th of March, in Verona, the Model Expo Italy 2014 will take place; it's an important international exhibition of both static and dynamic model-making. The last year the organization of the fair allowed LEGO bricks to participate, with a test exposition that CLV (the FOL group of Verona) successfully passed, thanks also to other italian AFOL that helped us during the event, with MOCs, sets and their presence. The organization judged that the quality of the showed material was in line with the spirit of the fair, and this year gave us lots of space. We of CLV want to make up something great, and so we need help from all italian AFOLs with their LUGs, groups and associations! The idea is to divide the space into these subthemes: - city diorama with buildings, parks, roads, railroad, harbour, rural zone and a big logistic center - technic exposition - star wars exposition - dynamic zone - vintage city zone - vintage castle zone - classic space zone - various-other-LEGO-stuff zone :D We don't know opening hours with precision yet; in 2013 they were: friday - set up; saturday - open to visitors from 9 AM to 6 PM; sunday - open to visitors from 9 AM to 6 PM and then dismantling time from 6 PM till we finish. Further info will arrive! For more details: http://www.clvbrickteam.org/ info@clvbrickteam.org
  15. ItLUG is proud to organize once again: Ballabio 2013. All information can be found at the Official Site of the event.

    Hello from Italy

    Hello from Italy I'm a fan of lego, lego technic in particular. I love build trial trucks and rock crawlers, try to improve them and make them similar to the real models. I have a blog where there are many articles dedicated to my most beautiful creations..
