  1. I was looking through my Lego today, and I came across this: It's part of one of my oldest MOCs, which was originally the back of this Lego seat, which I built in 2009. So I was thinking 'do other builders keep their MOCs together this long?' And that's my question: what is the longest time you have ever kept a MOC together, and why? Oh, and if you're wondering, one of the reasons why I kept it is because it's part of some very strange illusions... (not to mention I don't need the bricks it's made of)
  2. Click here for the full gallery. A mighty Viking warrior wielding a magic sword infused with the power of Odin himself. Built for round 2 of the 2017 Bio-Cup. Thanks for taking a look!
  3. Hi! Since this is my first post on Eurobricks a small introduction would be desirable. As a huge Star Wars collector I have followed the posts on this forum for about 6 months now. I recently decided I wanted to fix all my vehicles to minfigure scale (hard to determine). There were a lot of great designs of certain starfighters and walkers out there already so I decided to take those as a starting point. Mentioning Psiaki's X-Wing, Raskolnikov his AT-AT and Larry Lars' Snowspeeder! The new Millenium Falcon uses lots of olive green, dark tan and dark red to make it appear battle-worn and rusty. It inspired me to make all my models more ''universe accurate''. Anyway, I started off with the Snowspeeders I had built already and just went ahead and tweaked / replaced parts to my taste. You can expect every major vehicle from the Original Trilogy (including Rogue One) to be featured here in the next few months. Shall I update this topic or create individual topics for each of those? I was thinking about starting a ''Complete Minifigure Scale Guide for Star Wars'' to bundle all of those designs, since I found lots of posts mentioning a few official LEGO sets that are minifigure scale but none of them listed all of the amazing minifigure scale models designed by the community. Sorry for the long introduction, I had to go in big! Enjoy and thanks for your input!
  4. First of all, its only a joke, I'm fan of 4, 5 and 6 Star Wars Saga. But the first time i Saw the movie, I was a little child and I though, "...why that spaceship looks like a toilet lid?" I try to compete on rebrick with this, but obviously it was not approved... :P LEGO - Star Wars 800€ Toilet Lid by Sérgio Batista, no Flickr LEGO - Star Wars - 800€ toilet lid - U.C.S. by Sérgio Batista, no Flickr
  5. The first MOC I want to present on Eurobricks was an entry for the MOC Olympics contest on www.imperiumdersteine.de (German LUG). The task for the second Round was to build a ship or an iconic scene of the Empire or the First Order. A base of 32 x 32 was the limit. As you can see I decided to build an iconic scene of the Empire. My MOC shows the meeting, which all the high members of the Imperial Military attended and where they debated whether to use the death star immediately or not. The meeting also resulted in Darth Vader briefly strangling Motti with the Force after the latter insubordinately retorted Vader's warning that the abilities of the Death Star were miniscule compared to the Force. I hope you like it. Bye for now Boba ****** my flickr
  6. Arr mateys, it is Talk Like A Pirate Day 2017! It seems even Batman is taking to the Seven Seas, to plunder and drink rum: Batman in full pirate regalia, aboard his trusted "Black Bat". Who needs more than one sail? Who needs cannons? He's Batman! It is a rather simple construction, aye. Loot is aplenty, and you need some room for your batarangs. So celebrate todays most piratey holiday, and may your rum bottle go never dry!
  7. Hello, I start this topic to share with all my work with Lego : MOD MOC Reproducing your MOC Bargain on buying/selling The Lego convention I participated on To begin, please find a MOD of the mystery machine. I modified this nice and gentle van into a Carmaggedon version : I like the thumbler tyres, they fit very well to the Mystery Machine ! Hope you enjoy
  8. Greetings, Train Tech! Here's a model of the BR24 steam locomotive from Germany, built at my usual 15 inches / stud scale: The BR24 (or "DRG Class 24") were a standard class of German locomotives built in the 1920s and 1930s. As was the case with most standard German designs, plans were drawn up and orders were placed from various manufacturers. They served through World War 2, and continued to serve into the 70s in West Germany, East Germany, and in Poland (as the Oi2 class) Most photos of the locomotives show them fitted with the larger Wagner smoke deflectors (the "elephant ears") -- I've chosen to model the locomotive with the smaller Witte deflectors, which were fitted on a few examples later in their life. I was motivated to build this locomotive for two reasons. First, I wanted a suitable locomotive to go with the Umbauwagen I had built. Secondly, I hadn't seen many new takes on this model since Ben Beneke's version from the early 2000s! There are many builders who have modified Ben's design, often substituting BBB medium wheels for the rare large wheels from the set 7750. However, my typical scale is larger than the scale of Ben's model, and I also wanted to leverage some new parts that have come out since. Like most of my locomotives, this model features Power Functions. A single M-motor beneath the cab powers the drivers at a 5:3 reduction ratio. The locomotive is fairly light but pulls adequately, and there's room in the boiler for additional weight if needed. In a way, this model helps to understand and demonstrate how little weight and torque you can get away with; I see a lot of builders cram extra motors into their locomotive, when the torque can't be transmitted due to a lack of weight. The tender houses the Power Functions receiver and battery box. The 3-axle tender has a rigid frame, with the center axle sliding to negotiate curves (I used a similar geometry on the TP56 locomotive). The body of the tender lifts off for access. The battery box is mounted sideways to better take advantage of the shape of the tender. Coupled together, the locomotive has decent reception from all angles except the front, where the cab blocks the receiver. Incidentally, my model of the 2MT, which exhibited similar reception characteristics, happened to fall off the table during prototyping of this model. About 60% of the 2MT's parts wound up in the BR24, which is actually a pretty good recycling rate! I took the model to Bricks By The Bay 2017, where it spent many hours pulling the Umbauwagen around BayLUG's display. It also won "Best Machine" in the "Scale Models" category: Thanks to anyone who came by to see it, and the rest of the display! Here's the full Brickshelf gallery, along with some Work-In-Progress pictures. I've also brought you some footage of the locomotive in action: Thank you for reading! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- One final note: Ben was one of the builders who had been active around the time I first started buidling Lego train MOCs -- so in a way, this model is an homage to him. A few of the design techniques used in this model are based on techniques in his models -- the hinges angling the sides of the cab, the 11-plate-diameter boiler, and the way the smoke deflectors are attached. If you're still out there in the hobby, Ben, thank you for inspiring me and a whole generation of builders.
  9. [MOC] Classic Spaceheadz

    I just finished doing my Classic Spaceheadz. More pictures to follow once yellow's and blue's air tanks have arrived.
  10. Hey everyone! This is the topic for my all-new "theme" of MOCs, a series of creations designed to emulate LEGO's official set style. I'm excited because it represents quite a stylistic/genre shift from my last project like this, Dragon Lands, which was a fantasy series. Welcome to "Body Battlers," a retro-futuristic sci-fi adventure set inside the human body! Two 1950s teens—Roy and Tara—have been shrunk down to microscopic size to help a body's white blood cells fight off a dangerous infection, led by the evil disease Infekto. In this (openly pseudo-scientific) imagination of the fight that occurs constantly inside all of us, germs and antibodies are armed for battle, piloting cool machines and bouncing from one organ system to the next in their struggle. It's all ray-guns, pulse lasers, and niftyness! I really enjoyed playing around in a new genre, exploring the intersection between 1950s pop culture, retro-futurism, and human biology. MOCing in vibrant/"rare" colors, trying to create curved lines and distinctive silhouettes, and coming up with satisfactory set concepts were my most engaging challenges. Clicking the pictures below will link you to their larger versions. If you'd like to also see play feature videos, check out my Flickr stream. 52016 Gastro’s Diner 712 Pieces Resist the evil Infekto at Gastro’s Diner!

  11. Inspired by the Speed Champions cars. Last year I built a car showroom to show them off. Al's Autos is built on 3 large baseplates. On the left baseplate the blue and white sign has doubled sided brick plate writing and rotates on a Technic turntable. The showroom has a roller door entry behind the office on the left. It is fully tiled inside and lit with PF LEDs. On the right baseplate the brown turntable also rotates on a Technic turntable. The footpath is designed to match up to the Modular footpaths. My own creation cars are a Pick Up truck with removable Camper. A Ford GT40 reverse engineered from a LEGO YouTube movie. The black Pontiac is a KITT replica and has a working red LED scanner in the front. Next was a service centre / workshop for the showroom.The back section is a parts department. On the right are two service bays. The front one has a working Technic pneumatic hoist. Also PF LED lighting. The shipping containers can fit a Speed Champions car or spare parts. To keep the cars clean I next built a car wash. This has a working Technic based linear actuator to move the brushes back and forward over the car. So after a long day. It's off to the Drive In movies. The diner has a projection room, kitchen, counter, seating and toilet. My own creation cars are two NYPD police cars with working light bars. A yellow NY taxi. The two Porsche 911's are modified with brick headlights and door handles. The ambulance has working LED light bars, headlights and taillights One day I will get around to doing close up and interior photos.
  12. [MOC] Taiping Lake Garden

    Hi folks, today we are glad to present to you another great MOC of a lake garden in Taiping, Perak, Malaysia by Mr. Ng WY from LUG of Malaysia (LOM). The Taiping Lake Gardens was originally a mining ground before it was established as a public garden in 1880. This 64 hectars site is an abandoned tin mine made for recreational use. There are about 10 man-made lake and ponds throughout the gardens and its a very nice and peaceful place to visit if you have the chance to visit Malaysia. Let's have a look at this Lake in LEGO. The lake garden is easily accessible by the North South Highway, and look at these crowd of tourists here! I suppose its weekend here. The leaves and branches gave the peaceful feeling of this garden. But believe me, this MOC is so much more than this. A nice gazebo! I love the green and red color scheme of this small hut. All the bamboos here are the special attraction of the garden and you can peep through them to see a groom is posing for wedding photographs as they do that in the real garden. Tadaa! This is the whole picture of this magnificient MOC! The lake is built with trans clear tiles rather than trans blue tiles. I like it that Mr. Ng WY brilliantly use blue and grey under the trans clear pieces to show the depth of the lake! At the other side of the lake, there is a canoe activity going on. The gazebo is actually a bridge and the walkway is decorated with all the leaves and plants and bamboos along the way. Look! There is a wedding photoshoot going on! Every now and then couples are here with their hired photographers to take pre wedding photos for the beautiful scenery in the lake garden. A beautiful walkway. Let's keep this place clean. Nice clear water here. I think I've seen the swan some where.. hmm. Its a great addition in this MOC! There is actually swans for ride in the Taiping Lake Garden. This swan is moving by the pedaling motion of the riders. Our independence day is coming on the 31st of August. So Malaysia flag is waving on the boat. The trees have very nice and big trunks. Taiping is a very peaceful place for those pensioners to live in and you can see old folks sitting at the benches, talking about the good old days. Fishing. The artist is struggling for her new masterpiece. Maybe she can rest and have an ice cream first. There are monkeys too! They are feeding them bananas. This is the top view of the MOC and its very eye catching. Side view. I hope you enjoyed the MOC. Thoughts and comments are welcome. Thanks!
  13. (Picture links to Flickr) A concept for a Nexo Knights pack for Lego Dimensions. It includes Clay Moorington and a Rumble Blade that can be rebuilt into two other vehicles. I've done a fair number of Dimensions concepts largely because I adore the little microscale builds, but I'm still learning! This is the first model I've successfully designed two alt-builds for, and a big part of that was figuring out what sorts of parts are conducive to that. In this case, lots of SNOT parts were a must, 3x1 plates were preferred over even-numbered lengths due to the odd-numbered width of all three models, and I ended up using the CMF weightlifter's weights as wheels due to needing them to be bounded on both sides (for the bikes) and wanting to be able to use them as building elements themselves. I wasn't really conceptualizing this from a gameplay perspective. Presumably, the first two would be ground-based vehicles (possibly with flight capabilities as well) while the third would be purely a flying vehicle. The second vehicle could probably use tow bars as well. Beyond that, I'm not sure how their capabilities would differ specifically. Clay, for his part, could probably reflect lasers with his sword and maybe could have some tech-related skills as well (such as using techno-panels like Benny or maybe even using his Squirebot as a drone like Doc Brown or Cybermen). In future models, it might be worth my while to consider adding parts to the base which can be used for elemental effects, like the 1x1 "electric" studs in the Delorean model from the Back to the Future level pack. As I said earlier, I'm still learning! Obviously, there are some parts that could not be placed due to the limitations of LDD. The minifigure is almost entirely bare, but would include Clay's normal helmet, armor, sword, and shield in an actual product. I'm not actually sure what Nexo Power the shield would have—maybe a blue one with Clay's falcon emblem (possibly functional in the app, possibly just ornamental). If all the parts were included, the pack as a whole would be 47 parts, which is a fairly typical piece count for a Dimensions pack. Comments? Questions? Feedback is much appreciated!
  14. In the past few weeks I've been busy on this beauty: Edificio Metropolis Madrid. The roof was a real pain in the #!@$, but I think it's done nicely. I've only used Google Earth and some photographs of this tourist hot-spot building in the capital of Spain. The only thing not being LEGO are the stickers with the word METROPOLIS and the Golden Arches sign of McDonald's. To watch these pictures in a larger size, please visit my folder at BrickShelf
  15. [MOC] Crow

    My flickr page: https://www.flickr.com/photos/122198785@N06/
  16. Hello everybody and nice to meet you, I'm a new member on Eurobricks, I presented myself a few days ago here! Today I try to open my first thread, and doing so I would like to show you those creations of mine. They are not exactly mocs, as they are based on official sets, but they are sort of modifications I considered necessary to improve the original Lego models. Down here you can find the pictures of the Tie Fighter, a couple of posts below you can see my modded U-wing! So, let's start: [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr There are more modifications than you can probably see at a first look. First of all, the wings: black stripes have been placed on the inner side of the wings, and the outer black plates has been replaced with tiles. Inner and outer stripes has practically the same angle, so they blend easily in the model. Horizontal lines are realized by using 1x2 jumpers, diagonal lines with longer tiles, and are kept in place only with a 1x1 plate that allows the rotation of the elements. They are not very sturdy, but are more than enough if your plan is to show the model only on the pedestal. There were also some dbg plates in the wing panels, I replaced them with lbg to uniform the color. Moving to the cockpit, a big part of the curves have been redesigned to improve the sphere effect. Lego designers were clearly forced to create a playable solid model (and to include the horrible springload shooters), limitation I didn't have, so I could replace some pieces to improve the geometries and collocate the red parts in a more trusty way. I also used two small red stickers to create the right angle, but it hasn't been a so good idea, probably. The front printed round element has been rotate by 90 degrees to blend its joint with the red section. In the future I will probably replace the whole piece with another withound the joint (does it exist?) and in a different color, because I don't like the choice to use a transparent red piece. Another modified part is the joint of the cockpit with the wings, where I used some grill 1x2 tiles instead of simple 1x2 black tiles, as the real model shows far more lines than the actual set. Also the antenna has been simplified with smaller pieces to respect the right proportion with the ship. [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr The rear of the model has been totally redesigned, as you can see in the previous pictures. The engines on the side are definitely bigger and more protruding than the set's ones. Take a look at the end of the post to see a comparison with a toy model. I'm not sure about the red wake I included, but it's definitely nice! There were also some visible technic parts that have been covered with black tiles. In the following pictures you can see the shape of the edge lines, more rounded both in the lower... [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr ...and upper side: [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr To achieve that, on the upper side of the cockpit I replaced part of the plates with tiles or slopes because I personally don't like visible studs. Lastly, here it is the pedestal I created with spare technic parts. It is not adjustable as the one you can find in the UCS model, but keeps the fighter in a good angled position very nice to be exposed. The minifig will be replaced with the special forces pilot as soon as I will buy the new Kylo Ren's Tie Silencer. Another possibility would be to place, insted of the pilot, the characters who used this ship in the movie, Poe Dameron and Finn in the stormtrooper suit. [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr [MOD] First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter by SpaceBrick, on Flickr Thanks for reading, if you want to leave a comment you're welcome! I will listen carefully to every advice and possible improvement you wanna share! p.s.: Down here, instead, you can find a couple of pictures of the toy model I used as reference and the actual Lego set:
  17. Hi folks, I am not only new here, but also currently trying to get my Ideas project to become the first ever DUPLO submission reaching 100 supporters. There have been thousands and thousands of projects submitted, but only a handful of DUPLO ideas. I actually like DUPLO bricks better than LEGO bricks... are there other people around, having the same "disorder" ? And of course I'd really like to know what you think about my project: DUPLO Mysteries of The White House: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/865fd7d2-ac55-4162-a098-80fa99d458cb If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them - I mean, obviously there are not too many adults around building MOCs with DUPLO bricks, so don't hesitate to ask.
  18. Orient Express Thriller!

    Well, here it is! My first train MOC that I've ever made, the Orient Express! Including a large Pacific class style locomotive similar to the Emerald Night, a tender, and a passenger car, I cobbled this together from several Bricklink orders and the LEGO Constitution Train Chase. ( I was very sad to take it apart, but it was for the greater good!) The passenger coach features opening doors, and I was able to put two lights into the roof, so it can light up at night! Here's the official story on this MOC: -Oh no! There's a Mummy on the Orient Express! Join dashing, adventurous Arthur Rutledge as he travels across Europe with several priceless artifacts to be delivered to the Louvre Museum in Paris. But be careful, his evil nemesis Cad Goldwater is also aboard, and will stop at nothing to acquire the relics. Will Rutledge be successful, or will the Orient Express be stopped by the nefarious plans of Cad? It's up to you! You can also see more photos of this MOC on the Orient Express Thriller page on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/150692089@N03/albums/72157676895085431/with/31865151642/ This project is also on LEGO Ideas to support! https://ideas.lego.com/projects/162979 We would really appreciate the support! Thank you. :) A couple extra pictures!
  19. The Glacier Falls Lodge!

    This was one of my first large-scale MOCs, that came before the Orient Express Thriller or Winterfield Academy were even conceived! (back in 2014) I had watched the miniseries for "The Shining", and I've always been enamored with National Park lodges. So, the product was The Glacier Falls Lodge, the official lodge for Brickler Mountain National Park! A perfect getaway destination/luxury hotel catering to any minifig's vacation needs! This MOC went through at least six different iterations, before finally being pared down to a (very) downsized version fit for LEGO Ideas. At its prime, though, the Lodge contained an enormous lobby, full dining room and kitchen, and several guest rooms upstairs, with two bathrooms per floor (kind of in the style of Chico Hot Springs in Montana). The first iteration was built in 2014, during that summer we had a major fire that caused us to evacuate. This hotel was thrown in a box and taken with us in a car at night fleeing to Seattle. Later, when the fire season was over and we returned, the hotel sat on the desk for several months without being worked on. The Second Iteration had a change to the tower, it was more octagonal and separated from the roof. And I used the Town Hall Skylights for the Lobby. The Third Iteration sadly has no pictures, as my computer had crashed and we lost them. But it was pretty ugly. I had the idea to try and make octagonal towers on either side of the main doors, with the idea not turning out very well. That iteration was fragile, and fell apart easily. The Fourth Iteration was a HUGE model, with an upgraded, fancier porch and a sign out front! This was also when I made it into more of a Victorian style hotel, with a large wrap around porch, and the two towers on either side. These were half-octagonal towers, which made it a lot easier to stay together. (I had actually figured out how to build them, and gotten the pieces for it). The roof was a major challenge, but we made it work! This iteration also had an enormous, well thought out and beautifully built dining room, as well as a large kitchen with three to four walk in freezers! The Fifth Iteration was downsized in terms of length to make it fit through the door, lol! The basic hotel structure remained the same, however, with the exception of a large rearranging of the rooms inside. This was the first project that I submitted to LEGO Ideas, before having to downsize it again for it to be accepted. This was by far the best iteration of the six, and the only one we have interior pictures of. 5th Iteration furniture and Grand Fireplace 5th Iteration First Floor Porch Detail Lobby Facing the Dining Room Lobby picture 2 Piano Music Room Lobby Picture 3 The cool part was that the interior walls of the 5th Iteration were removable! 1st/2nd floors This was also the first iteration to have major interior decorating and fancy chandeliers! The 6th and Final Iteration of this MOC kept most of the basic structure, subtracting much of the width, in order to make the 3000 piece LEGO Ideas limit. This unfortunately was at the cost of sacrificing the entirety of the interior minus several pieces of furniture. This iteration currently, sadly does not exist anymore. It was torn down and the pieces used for Winterfield Academy (pictured below) However the 6th Iteration is still up on LEGO Ideas right now, and currently has 2036 Supporters! If you would like to give your support as well, I'll include the link here. We would really appreciate any support given! :) https://ideas.lego.com/projects/66655f37-9622-4836-a2cb-797e916f4e2b Anyways, that's the whole story on the MOC! This was by far (not counting my disastrous attempt at a county courthouse when I was 15) my first successful MOC that I thought looked relatively decent! Please tell me what you think, anything you like about it, etc., in your replies! I'll finish with a couple shots from last December and our promotional Winter Photoshoot! :) Thanks for reading! :)
  20. Introducing the Ultimate Collector's Series AT-ACT! Since it appears that Lego will not be releasing a version of the vehicle, and MOCs have not exactly captured the scale of it, I have decided to take matters into my own hands. Using Cavegod's AT-AT as a base for the build and a final size, I was able to modify certain sections of the MOC to recreate an AT-ACT! As many of you may know, Cavegod's AT-AT is slightly too big for minifigure scale, however math has shown that this size is in fact minifigure scale for an AT-ACT! With a redesigned head, side modifications, and technic legs, this MOC surely takes the original design and reinvents it into a behemoth from the battle of Scarif. The final MOC measures 6,882 bricks in quantity and matches up in size with Cavegod's AT-AT. (High Quality) Pictures are still in development for a finished build of the MOC, but I am still willing to share what I currently have with the community. I have completed a 345 page instruction manual for this MOC, and have prepared to share that with AFOLs. The manual comes in a bundle with the LDD files and a parts list for the MOC. Since the manual is currently 99% done and not final (Just need to put in the pictures), anyone who receives a copy of the bundle will receive a new copy of the manual when the front cover picture is put in. All I ask in return for the bundle is $35 as a contribution toward all of the work that went into the final product. If you are interested in receiving a manual, please contact me at chrdvorak@hotmail.com and I will give you the necessary information to receive your own copy. Here are some screenshots from the manual:
  21. Hey Everyone! Here is the successor to my Lego Technic Chili Crawler, the Cactus Crawler It took about half of a year of design and revision to reach its current state, of which I am proud of. THE VIDEO: youtube Features: - 3 L-Motors for drive (two in the rear axle, one in the front) - M-Motor and a small linear actuator for front steering - Rigid, triangulated 4-link suspension for the front axle, with large, soft, black shock absorbers - Extremely rigid 2-link rear suspension with ball-joint pivot point on top of the axle, similar to that found in the RC "Mantis" crawler - 100% Lego-legal custom curved rear links that, with how the main cab is shaped, provide exceptional ground clearance towards the rear of the crawler, allowing it to climb up relatively large vertical structures such as street curbs - Very minimal, light bodywork - BuWizz for extra power and SBrick for a great, custom control scheme Note: By the time I finished designing the cab and it's battery enclosure, BuWuzz had not yet come out with the update for their iOS app that allows a single joystick/slider to control multiple outputs, so I was forced to use an SBrick with the BuWizz, providing the extra power from the BuWizz, but with the ease-of-use and great custom control profiles of the SBrick. When used with the SBrick, the BuWizz does in fact still provide more power than the standard Lego 8878 LiPo battery box. - RC4WD 1.9" Krypton scale tires - Two green pieces so that I can call it the Cactus Crawler ;) LXF hopefully coming soon, the tires can easily be found with a quick google search of their name. YES, I know, there is no body. This is meant for performance, meaning I made the cab as small, light, and rigid as possible. I will be able to reply intermittently throughout the day. I figured I'd put this up now anyway! pt
  22. This pagoda scene was created for display in the upcoming Cactus Brick display in September. This MOC won first place in the club competition for creating Ninjago related creations. It also tied for most eye catching of the creations entered into the competition. Enjoy!
  23. MOC - Godwins Hollow Overview

    Well, it had been over a year since we'd taken stock of Godwins Hollow as a whole. So, we went to town, took some pics, and thought we'd share. If you're interested there are more pics on our Flickr page. Hope you enjoy. 170901 Godwins Hollow Overview by Stewart & Sydney, on Flickr
