This is my fourth modular building and first one that really got me angry at LEGO. I'll explain that at this end of my post. This is a Jewellery Store at the ground floor, followed by an apartment on first and second floors. What I wanted to achieve with this build was to have a living space that was complete. Eventually I missed the bathroom having only toilet there. What I did crammed in there is the living room, kitchen and toilet on the first floor and two bedrooms on the second floor (the little boy has blankets made of reindeer skin ;) ). There is also a storing room on the ground floor and a swing for the boy (where he left his teddy bear). I have also made a little area surrounded by foliage overgrown stone wall. The entry to the apartment is through the gate and at the side of the building. So, let's have a look at all of the modules together: First let's have a closer look at the ground floor: and a view from the back: and a front with LOVELY dark green bricks. Each in different version of what was supposed to be the same colour: Now for the first floor with living room, kitchen and toilet: and the last floor: Here is another view of the building: and now I'll tell you what made me angry (apart from those dark greens, that is). First, it was also DBGs and bright pink that were all over the place with colour accuracy. Have a look at that: Then, much more serious trouble. This is what happened when I tried to build with 1x2 bricks: Nice, isn't it? It was even worse if you kept on building like that so I had to disassemble everything and start again, but this time I had to use 1x4 bricks as much as I could to avoid warping the baseplate and rising the whole building. Pathetic. But it's not all. Later came 1x2 plates. This is what those do: Same thing, but here I need only one layer of them and was albo counter fight this effect with 1x4 bricks on top. Lastly, cheese slopes. I have 2x6 of them on the front. You guessed it right. On the left side 4 out of 6 cracked. Because. I was rather displeased, to say the least as those are all new bricks and I have more similar stories to tell lately so I contacted LEGO service via e-mail. They politely told me to sod off. Only after me calling them I was able to get replacement for broken and cracked pieces. Shame on you LEGO... :/ PS. Full gallery for this modular is here: http://bricksafe.com...jewellery-store
leoparder posted a topic in CommunityAfter many months of work, I am happy to present you Hint lab ! I would love to get your input on my work :) Why ? You know it better than anyone, many people have a strong emotional attachment to our little bricks. They remind us of our childhood, they represent creative thinking etc. Lego bricks can be found in almost every home around the world. They come in many shapes and colors that make them ideal for customization and assortment. I realized a lot of people like to match their accessories to their outfits. Matching shoes to shirt, bag to watch... I wish to associate these ideas together. So I present you : Hint Lab. Hint lab is a range of jewelry in precious metal and nylon that allow you to wear Lego bricks and match them to your outfit. More HD photos here. What do you think of it ? Do you think there is a market for this kind of products ? I want to improve the range, do not hesitate to tell me if you have any suggestion :)
The most famous jewelled eggs are the Fabergé eggs made by Peter Carl Fabergé between 1885 and 1917 for the Russian Tsars Alexander III and Nicholas II. The Tsars presented the eggs as Easter gifts for their wives and mothers. I always liked jewelled eggs, but unfortunately they are just unaffordable (well, the real ones at least...). I just had to make a LEGO version! Like many jewelled eggs, it has a theme and contains a surprise inside: it’s a wedding egg! This egg is dedicated to my dear brother and his wife whom recently got married! Hurray! Do you have something to celebrate as well? Or do you want to give something pretty to your best friend or beloved? (or treat yourself) ... make sure to support this project on LEGO Ideas to turn it into an official LEGO set!
