  1. This ship was designed to replace my original micro scale ocean liner from 2011. It's not intended to represent any real liner per say, though I was inspired a tiny bit by the Queen Mary (located out in Long Beach, CA) and a lot inspired by the Olympic / Titanic / Britannic sister-ships that were sadly scrapped / sunk by iceberg / mined in WW1. Here we see the RMS Allemann at sail at night in the mid-Atlantic sometime in the late 1920's. (this LDD picture was edited to give it a night-time feel. If only the portholes glowed!) The font of the ship (also called the "bow".) features three printed 1 x 6 tiles should spell out the name ALLEMANN on the left and right sides, and along with the stern. The light gray "hatches" at the fore and aft sections of the ship are for loading cargo into the various holds. Statistics: Ship Name: RMS Allemann Ship Type: "Gigantic" Class passenger Liner Owner: Red Star Line Ship Built: 1919 – 1921 Capacity: 400 Crew, 270 First class, 630 Second class, 1,000 Third class Lifeboats: 20 regular boats / 4 collapsible boats with 80 people per boat each (1,920 people total capacity) Builder: Strong & Steele Shipbuilders of London Propulsion: 24 Boilers, 2 turbines, 4 steel propellers Top Speed: 30 Knots Fuel: Diesel (originally Oil) The rear of the ship. (also called the "stern".) The raised portion of the deck is for the docking bridge when the ship is backing into port. The ship features a modular approach to it's construction, allowing for separation of bow and stern for storage ease... and in case I want to build a wrecked version in the future, I just disconnect the four Technic pins to remove the desired section from the rest of the vessel. Also, I thought about Gateway LUG holiday displays, which usually include light-up models in some form, usually modular buildings. These potential lights are now addable via the open bottom of the ship for a neat effect through the portholes. The pennant flag of the Red Star Line as originally used on the RMS Allemann. The RMS Allemann was first proposed in 1914, but World War One prevented it's construction by Strong & Steele Shipbuilders to start until 1919. The ship was modified from it's original proposed engine design to burn oil, and was completed in February 1921. The ship could hold 1,900 people total, with 400 being Crew, with 270 being First class, 630 in Second class, and 1,000 being the steerage, or Third class. The ship sailed it's maiden voyage in July 1921 from Southampton to New York City. The ship was English-owned, and as such, was immune to the new American anti-alcohol laws of Prohibition. The ship took off-peak season sailings (informally known as Liquor Cruises) around the Atlantic, returning to the American port of origin within a couple days. The ship managed to hold a steady service record, and remained relatively full-up until the Great Depression really took hold in 1931. The ship's owners, the Red Star Line, managed to stay financially afloat long enough to get the ship through the worst of the Depression, until the ship was requested by the English Navy as a troop ship in late 1939 for use in World War Two. The Allemann's fancy woodwork was put in storage and the ship was turned into a troop ship relatively quickly. The ship was strafed several times by enemy aircraft during the war, and narrowly missed being torpedoed in 1943, but it survived the war not too much worse for wear. When it was handed back over to Red Star Line, it was given a complete overhaul mechanically and electrically. The whole ship was rewired, and the oil burning engines converted to diesel. The Acadia's woodwork was painstakingly restored to it's original grandeur, and she was ready for for sailing by 1948, almost a year after being handed back to it's original owners. In the early '50's the ship began sailing luxury cruises to the Mediterranean from England and the United States, in addition to it's usual scheduled Atlantic crossings, and had it's third class re-designated as Tourist class. This was because the decline of the Atlantic immigrant traffic pattern was nearly complete. The ship began showing it's age by the late 1960's, when it's original glass dome began to leak badly. A handful of cracks in the reinforced glass caused the ship to be dry-docked, but before it could be fixed the huge dome collapsed in on itself, causing the grand staircase to be heavily damaged. Luckily, the accident happened in the middle of the night, and no one was on board at the time to get hurt by all that broken glass. The ships' dome was replaced, but only because the ship's owners knew of the ship's heritage and couldn't bear to see the old girl scrapped. (Not to mention it would have cost more to scrap the ship than fix the dome) By 1975, she was last four-stack ship in existence, and the owners were planning the grand lady's 55th Birthday for the next year. The Allemann celebrated July 1st, 1976 as her fifty-fifth birthday, and as part of the celebrations she was given to a preservation group dedicated to keeping the ship sailing as an "ambassador of history", as a peek into the way things were and how the men and women visiting and working on the Allemann went about their lives through each period of this ships stoic history. Many former passengers and crew detailed their experiences on the ship in writing or on film for the beginning of what later became known as The Allemann Living History Museum. Today, the ship features a feature-length film that chronicles the story of the ship and it's many passengers and crew through out the ships commercial and wartime lives. The film is shown in the Second Class movie theater, built into the ship in 1947 after World War Two, flowing seamlessly into the 1920's flavor of the ship. The ship still sails, making stops in New York and London (substituted for Southampton) at least twice a year. NOTES: The bow is either a bit too long or the stern too short, but I can't seem to fix that correctly to be "in scale". In fact, it's pretty much assured there is NO scale used with this ship, as I just built what looked good to me. The model will have to be bought sometime in Autumn of this year, as even though it has most of the parts from the 2011 ship inside it, (these have been removed the from the parts list to save money) it still will cost almost (US) $200 to purchase the remaining needed parts to have it done by the Christmas-time show later this year. Any thoughts, comments, suggestions, or complaints on this ship?

  4. Here, it is set in the 'Turn Of The 1990s' when they first bought their floral print lounge suites, a mahogany bookshelf and cocktail buffet but before the fireplace had a stone surround built and when the brick arch/skirting were painted peachy pink! The 1x1 headlight brick makes a great TV set! I really do miss these good times at their former residence! Dating from the Late 19th Century, it also had three bedrooms, a small kitchen that had a swing out counter that allowed access to underground wine storage, a large backyard and a swimming pool! Here's what the living room looked like prior to my day of birth! And after the refurbishment:

    [MOC] Brick Bridge

    In 2017, when LEGO presented the world with set 70922 Joker Manor, almost the entire AFOL community was crazy about the new coastertracks in this set. Finally, people could build the craziest rides for their theme parks. As I didn't see any other applications for these parts, I didn't dwell on them for long. Until images of 75889 Ferrari Ultimate Garage leaked and I got to thinking: if these rails can be used to make a finishline, can you also build other bow-like things with them? Could be a fantastic MOC if done right. So I ordered a tan baseplate, 4 railcurves, 3 roadtiles and a lot of dark tan slopes in different sizes and I got to building. What ultimately led to this MOC. I hope you like it as much as I do. Brick Bridge by TAFOL, on Flickr You can view more pictures on my Brickshelf and/or on my Flickr. And please like and share this MOC on Facebook.

    [MOC] Tornado

    This is MOC of May 2012. This is the most unusual using of Lego parts I ever made. Inspired by TV programmes at Discovery channel "Storm Chasers" and "Tornado Alley", and also by a film "Twister". My tornado and a small house. The real tornado (photo from Wikimedia). Don't worry, tornado passes by the house and its owners hid in underground cellar. View from another side. Thanks for watching and any comments are very welcomed)
  7. While working on another fire department truck, which I will present you soon, the idea for a neat small vehicle came to my mind. So I interrupted the other building process for ten minutes and created this fire department turntable ladder. http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=572608 I consists of 24 parts (26 parts with nozzle and "water" as shown on Picture above). Maybe we can renounce the mandatory video this time... The picture with the bottom view will reveal all the intricate mechanisms ;-)
  8. Hi! Recently I came up with an idea for a bridge in Micro scale, and the rest "built itself" pretty easily and quickly. The whole idea is to show a current countryside with a big road "ruining" the view... The model needs some cosmetic touches to the river, but overall I think it looks pretty good. Hope you'll like it! Pictures: A couple having a nice picknick Flickr Gallery Video:
  9. Space... vast and endless as time itself, yet filled with many lifeforms bound by Creativity. The Odyssey project was designed to protect life from the forces of Chaos and Destruction, no matter the cost. But it serves another purpose too, as a gathering place of aliens races' leaders and a meeting of the great inventive minds in the universe. From times of war to times of peace, the Odyssey space station has stood proudly as a beacon of light to the many worlds darkened by the forces of evil. Now that beacon is threatened by mysterious forces from beyond our dimension, plus old foes that have resurfaced in this time of peril. The plea has gone out for help to save Imagination... Will YOU answer the Call? Fictional info: This space station (named Odyssey II) orbits the ice world of Beta Polaris, pointed at the direction of the trans-dimensional rip in space-time that leads to Lego Universe, ready to report any threat that may emerge from the space between spaces. Odyssey II is both an advanced weapons research platform and a forum for great minds and leaders from throughout the universe.The station is the headquarters for the Neo Nexus Force, (in cooperation with the Norsta race, of course) and the home of Nexus - Polaris University. This school focuses on the meaning of time and space itself, plus performing experiments on hyper-space streamlining, artificial gravity production, theoretical physics, and sports. (Let's go Nexo-nauts!) (this picture has a description of the areas of the station. See here for a bigger look at the picture so you can read it!) Their are meeting rooms on one of the half of the two arms of the station, which provides the gravity for this section like a centrifuge. As such, this section is laid out so that the "ground" is towards the ends of the arms, with the center having lower gravity and the non-public front and back of the station have none and you can float weightless in. The other one of the arms features a large research facility, with many libraries and even a small university focused on the study of space, time and the many mysteries therein. The station also has "the wheel". This module provides living quarters for all the university staff, visitors, and station crew, and gravity is provided by the "ground" being the outer wall of the arms. The engines on this station allow it to move if need be, even through hyper-space, though this has never happened on a large scale beyond course correction and maintaining balance in it's orbit of Beta Polaris. Here we see one of the Neo-Nexus Force ships (the cruiser Bright Hope) docked on one of the four "gravity locks". These allow for the ship to sync up with the station and crew / passengers to disembark the ship. The solar panels on the station are actually detectors of chaos energy, which would mean the breach between Universes is open once more and the evil of the Maelstrom is coming through. This would mean the station would be evacuated of civilian personnel and the military forces bolstered, ready to attack the swirling mass of darkness. The Bridge Hope in miniature scale. (This was designed by my brother to be a counterpart to the Odyssey II space station. It is based off my mini-figure scale ship of the same name: Bright Hope) This vessel is included in the LDD file. (In reality the space station model was inspired by this model by DcotorSpock888: https://www.flickr.com/photos/dr_spock_888/20558633496/in/dateposted/ plus the Babylon 5 and Star Trek TV series', the Star Wars universe, and the old LEGO Universe massive multiplayer online game.) As usual, Comments, Questions, and Complaints are welcome! EDIT 3/9/17: The model has been updated, and the pictures retaken and uploaded.
  10. Hi all, Here comes a micro build of a crusing yacht. I wanted to do something with very few bricks, like a 8 - 15 piece challenge. To present it, i wanted some brick build water in a "wave" formation, to give it some realism. Instruction pic included. enjoy :D Feel free to ask, comment etc... micro yacht by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr micro yacht instructions by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr

    Hogwarts Castle (Lego Architecture)

    Hi everyone! There's a contest going on over at the German forum Imperium der Steine challenging us to build our own Architecture style models. There are three categories, the first two being Skylines and Actual Buildings but for the third one we are to build fictional skylines or buildings! As I am a big Harry Potter fan Hogwarts was the first thing I could think of. Lego Architecture: Hogwarts Castle by Kit Bricksto, on Flickr I am really happy with how it turned out but I'd love to hear your opinions and I am of course open to criticism too!
  12. Here is my take on a Incom T-70 X-wing fighter from the Force Awakens in a micro(ish) scale, here in Poe Damerons colours I thought LEGO's original version (30278) was a bit low on details, so decided to try a version of my own... I know there are still details that are not completely correct (like the halfmoon engine intakes), but there are several limitations working with micro scales. And I'm far from being an expert. Actually I'm a beginner... But anyway, I hope you like it. I'm actually quite happy with the result myself Incom T-70 X-wing 2 by Kenneth, on Flickr Incom T-70 X-wing 3 by Kenneth, on Flickr

    B-Tron Research Base

    Hello Eurobricks Sci-Fi community, i want to share my latest space creation with you. This creation was something completely new for me as I have never built someting in Micro Scale before and for my first try I am quite pleased with the outcome of this creation. I hope you like it too. This MOC is inspired by the "Ice Planet 2002" and "Blacktron Future Generation" themes from the early 1990s. I first started with building the micro spaceships as an entry for my LUGs christmas raffle/advent calendar, I liked them so much that I decided to build a MOC for them. I also showed this MOC at a LEGO exhibition in Austria last weekend next to the very inspiring Ice Planet 2002 - Battle Tank from my fellow LUG member markus19840420.

  15. This space station orbits the ice world of Beta Polaris, pointed at the direction of the trans-dimensional rip in space-time that leads to Lego Universe. The station is really an advanced weapons platform, capable of vaporizing any enemy fighters or heavily damaging Maelstrom star-cruisers. The station features a large ionic plasma cannon at it's nose, with re-purposed solar panels (they are now giant chaos-energy sensors) taking up space just behind it. The next section is the crew quarters. This section rotates to provide gravity, but the battle computers and command bridge are further towards the nose and do not rotate, thus they are in zero gravity. The space behind the crew quarters is the engineering department, which also lacks gravity. This section contains the nuclear fusion reactor power plant, which provides power to the station, while also powering the ionic plasma weapon at the other end of the station. The name of the platform is Space Station Odyssey II, after the near-identical first station was destroyed in a freak accident involving the ionic plasma weapon. NOTES: This build was heavily inspired by Doctor_Spock_888's brick separator hyper-drive model, seen here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/dr_spock_888/20558633496/in/dateposted/ Also, two of this print should go on the slopes on the crew section: http://alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=15068pb004#T=C&C=4 The ldd file is here, if anyone wants it: http://www.mocpages.com/user_images/80135/1439821376m.lxf Any thoughts, complaints, questions and / or comments are welcome!

    [LDD MOC] Brikwarpg World Map

    This is just a project I've been working on for my weekly brikwars game. It's a micro-scale world map of the setting! Currently it includes the spaceport, the village, and a big ole mountain. I really enjoy working in micro-scale, but rarely find a reason to, so this has been a lot of fun. (Edit: Could a mod add 'WIP' to the title of this thread?)

    LDD Micro MOC - Bulldozer

    Hi, This i my first ever micro scale MOC. I don't know if this is the right forum, and if it isn't, I would appreciate if it was moved to the right forum. I got inspired by this great little MOC on cuusoo. As it is my first time building this kind a model, I tried a few different techniques. You can see the terrain is very different from one side to the other, and the level of detail is varying around the whole model. I plan to build it in real life as soon as I can order some more parts of bricklink (which may take some time as Technic models are prioritized, and January generally is an expensive month with insurance, taxes, and so on...). And, it's time for a couple of pics: I would very much like to learn more about techniques fore building on micro scale, and would appreciate if anyone could point me in the right direction. -ED- The .lxf file can be found in my Brickshelf folder as soon as it's approved.
