Hello everyone! After a constructive stop of a couple of months at the beginning of the year I decided to try my hand at building a medieval mill. I like to think of this mill set in the Middle Ages, inhabited by a simple family that lived in an era where today's technology did not exist yet, without cell phones, computers and the Internet. Only a stone and wood house built with the toil of the hands and a life led to produce flour for bread and to grow vegetables and products of the earth. All surrounded by a luxuriant nature without the traffic and the polluted air of today. A life that is certainly very difficult but much simpler and built on basic concepts like family, land and food. The construction of this moc took a couple of months and made up of about 5,200 pieces and it took two months of construction. The blades of the mill are powered by a Medium Lego motor and can be turned over with a button on the back of the house. Moc presented for the first time at the MEI in Verona 2018 (Italy).

Hi everyone, today I present a MOC that I just realized recently for a specific occasion: the Lego Event in Florence (Brick in Florence Festival 2017). Tuscany landscapes have always been in my heart, in the last 15 years I have traveled several times in spring and summer in a specific area of Tuscany that is the "Crete Senesi". In this geographical area that starts from the south of Siena to the town of Pienza there are landscapes formed by sinuous hills with cottages and cypresses. For years I have been photographing these areas and I could not miss creating a MOC dedicated to this land. As an inspiration I used a picture of mine that you can see here: http://www.unafotoalgiorno.it/portfolio/visgallery.php?cat=paesaggi&id=11838 Between design and construction it took only one month, I think it's one of the MOCs I've made faster in my story than AFOL! I had little time but the ideas clear enough of what I wanted to accomplish. With just 4 Bricklink orders made all the same day, I did nothing but wait for them to come home and then all the construction took place within a couple of weeks (in time scraps). It is a very simple moc, it is not composed of special techniques. I still had a lot of fun building it because I partly resumed my memories of photographic travels I did in the past. flickr gallery: https://www.flickr.com/photos/sdrnet/albums/72157690184763535 Hope you like it and if you have questions I am available! Bye, Sandro
