    Japanese Castle

    Hi there! Long time, no see. I've been inactive for a couple of years, not posting or anything. I haven't stopped building LEGO though, so I present to you my latest MOC! It's a Japanese castle, as you can see, inspired by a certain real life castle (can you guess which one?). Sorry for the shitty pictures. I don't really have the tools or know-how to take good pictures. I might try to take some better pictures eventually, but for now I just want to share my MOC with you guys. :) It's not completely finished since I want to expand it by adding more baseplates, but this section is done. You can remove a couple of the floors but it's kind of a hassle.
  2. The recent Brickmania magazine featured instructions for a Type 97 Ke-Te Tankette from WW2. I did a bit of research into this obscure vehicle and discovered it spawned a couple of variants which I decided to try and recreate using the chassis of the original vehicle. The Original Brinckmania Type 97 Tankette (the real life version performed reasonably well against the Chinese but was no match for US and Soviet forces) Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Type 98 So-Da Troop/Ammo carrier The first variant was a troop and ammunition carrier. The turret was removed and the engine relocated to beside the driver freeing up the rear to carry troops/cargo.

It also had a towing hook and could pull artillery pieces. Type 98 So-Da Troop/ammo carrier by g.nat, on Flickr Type 98 So-Da Troop/ammo carrier by g.nat, on Flickr The original could carry up to 10 troops!! My LEGO version... not quite as many!! Type 98 So-Da Troop/ammo carrier by g.nat, on Flickr Type 98 So-Da Troop/ammo carrier by g.nat, on Flickr Type 100 Te-Re Artillery Spotting Vehicle Almost identical to the Type 98, this variant was intended for use by artillery spotters to direct long range fire. The troop/cargo section was equipped with radios and a rangefinder could be mounted on the engine deck.

Accessories are mainly Brickarms and Brick Warriors. Thanks for looking - comments always welcome.
  3. Alright, now that LEGO has announced 21311 Voltron, the first ever LEGO set to be based on an anime series originally from Japan, I can imagine LEGO doing an anime adaptation of their properties. My pick would be Bionicle: The Mata-Nui Saga! Based on the Mata-Nui timeline, Season 1 could cover the 2001 storyline, Season 2 covering 2002, Season 3 with 2003 and onwards. If LEGO ever decides to remake their classic Bionicle sets as a tie-in, I think it'd be pretty interesting to see. Oh, and believe it or not, the word "Bionicle" can also be translated into Japanese! バイオニクル - Baionikuru Does anyone think Bionicle could work out as a Japanese anime as long as it stays true to the source material?

    Tabashii's Tea House

    Tabashii's Tea House While not originally created by the Skudae, the art of the tea ceremony is most significantly associated with them, and a number of tea houses exist in their capital of Civus Skudae. One of the most famous tea masters is Tabashii, who moved to the Western Isles to seek his fortune amongst the new Loreesi nobility. The nouveau riche of Port Valiant are frequently seen in his establishment, soaking up what they see as Skudae culture. This experience does not come cheap, and Tabashii himself has amassed considerable wealth from their desire to seek out new experiences and cultures. More pictures on Flickr.

    [MOC] Rivergate

    I built my first Japanese themed MOC tp try out some ideas. It's just a smal scene, I hope you like it: Full album: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=568715
  6. I don't get a chance to delve into traditional Japanese subthemes very often, but when I do, I enjoy it! I built this for the set revamp category of the Tourney. The set I revamped was 6093 Flying Ninja Fortress. The Samurais are under attack! Under the left tower I added a bit of functionality with a shooting jewel rack... not that there's really much point to a shooting jewel rack, but - well... The build also has an interior: Without minifigures: Thanks for looking!

    Obashi Mist Dragon

    Hey all! Here's a dragon I designed recently as a prize in my Second Dragon-Building Contest. He's my first Asian-style dragon, and I'm pretty happy with how he turned out! Meet Obashi the mist dragon. All the above images link to their larger versions on my Flickr. You can also check out a few more pictures over there. Thanks for looking!
  8. This project started last December and progress were averaging at one bot per month. After 7 months of gruelling yet challenging efforts, Liokaiser is finally done. However , back then (end of June) ... I was given a chance to showcase my LEGO transformers at a local store , so Liokaiser was whisked there for a month (video link below). After a month , he was put in storage as I was busy with another LEGO TF project. I'd guess I better put a closure to this now .So there :) >> As a LEGO combiner of this size, (more than 1.5 feet tall)... he is top heavy, so he can't be posed in more elaborate manner. Too much stress were imposed on the hinges . :| >> Due to complexity of individual bot , merging them to form Liokaiser caused a few weak points in connections. I'm forced to apply extra scaffoldings in a few areas to reinforce these connections, so that posing him about would not topple him over . >> Yes, it's SEVEN breastforce members I mentioned just now. In the original cartoon, Deathcobra was the 7th member of Breastforce (forming the arm) but was killed early in the show. So here, I decided to pay homage to this character by having him as a helicopter that transforms/separates into components for the combiner: Hands, head and a gun. If you wish to view more photos of Liokaiser and the whole breastforce team (more than 200 photos!) , the following blog link is a good starting point: http://alanyuppie.blogspot.com/2016/09/lego-breastforce-combiner-liokaiser.html As a LEGO TF builder, this project really pushes my limits and skills (and patience.. gawd... finding ways to merge the upper body was simply taxing). OK now I need find ways to outdo myself again. Lemme think what else I can build next. Thanks for viewing!! :)
  9. After consulting with the late monk Osamu, Daiymo Hayato left for Tagashima Castle to plan out his next move. He has heard from his spies that enemies are plotting against his life, and that the safest route would be through the mountains. The main roads would be far too dangerous. So, after several days of travel, Hayato and his bodyguard, have arrived at a safe haven, the monastery of one of Hayato's close friends, the monk Satomi. And that is that! :) This is my entry for the Colossal Castle Contest's small category. ​Criticisms, questions, and comments are welcome! Thank you for viewing my creation!

    Need Japanese Webpage Translated

    There's a Japanese website that I need a page translated off of. I've tried Google, but it's only resulting in "Google-Speak," If there's anyone on Eurobricks who can read kanji, and wouldn't mind translating one of the pages for me, I would appreciate your PMing me. As for payment(due to the fact that it's a longer page, and a bit beyond the 'brief favor' mark), I'm a bit broke, but I could likely whip you up a nice sig-fig render in Blender*, or something like that, in return. Thanks, ~Lind Whisperer *An example of my work. (Request mirrored on RRU.)
  11. Can anyone tell me what do the Asian characters on this part mean? It is a glass piece from Ninjago sets. I am using it on a creation to give to a Japanese teacher, so I would like to confirm what it means before presenting it. Thanks.

    Hi Everyone! I would like to share my latest MOC, the title of this MOC is Ito Sushi Bar. I tried to put in more Japanese culture and foods in the sushi bar.

  13. Following the Bushido honor code, a disgraced Samurai is carrying out the Seppuku ritual. The Seppuku act consists of the Samurai warrior performing a ceremonial self-disembowelment in front of spectators. After the samurai is finished, he stretches out his neck for his kaishakunin (assistant) to decapitate him. The ritual is extremely violent. Blood is spilled all over the site of the act, even the white flowers have turned red...

    [MOC] Japanese garden

    I recently competed in a seed part challenge called Duel of Pirates on the french forum brickpirate.net. The seed part was a modified 1x2 plate with ladder in dark tan I had two ideas for the part that both fit in a Japanese setting, but in different scale, so I went with a bit of forced perspective on this one.

    Oni 鬼

    Oni are demons in Japanese folklore. I've wanted to build one after seeing the awesome version made by Stuart Delahay fro the 2014 MOColympics on mocpages (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/401094). Here's my take on the iconic creature. Yes, it does stand on its own, no bricks are removed with photoshop or anything. Enjoy!

  16. B-RV-15E Hey all, I'd like to share my Latest MOC of the Hidamari apartment building from the popular Anime series "Hidamari Sketch!" It is an almost exact replica from the series, everything down to the colors and even the electric boxes are built. Hidamari Apartments by ChrisR18t, on Flickr Here you can get a glimpse of the building in the background: It was actually rather tough to model because the building changes in slight variations in color and details per episode. I focused on the details and colors that appeared the most throughout the series. Hidamari Apartments by ChrisR18t, on Flickr Another screenshot to show the colors of the doors, note that there are no electrical boxes like my MOC, but in many other shots in the anime, they are there. The big variance that occurs in the anime is the colors of the back windows, in many shots the colors of the frames are dark blue for all the windows, while other times they were matching colors to the front doors, I went with the colorful option as it gives the building a more "pretty" look to it. Hidamari Apartments by ChrisR18t, on Flickr Hidamari Apartments by ChrisR18t, on Flickr I also put in some lightly detailed interiors so you can at least see there is something on the inside versus just a hollow shell. Hidamari Apartments by ChrisR18t, on Flickr I have some more pics on my Flickr, comments welcome!
