  1. HI guys, I want to share with you this interview we did to the builder of this MOC. As it is in Italian, turn on subtitles in English. Let me know if you are interested in other MOC videos exhibited in Italian events.
  2. This loco is a 1926 oil burning 4-8-2 "Mountain" type, (4 leading, 8 drivers, 2 trailing) that was made surplus in 1951, donated to the Museum of Transportation (of St. Louis, Missouri) in 1959, and restored to working order in 1988 for it's excursion career. It's new lease on life lasted until 2002 when insurance costs and a failing boiler made the engine enter it's second retirement, while will be probably be forever. This may not be the best interpretation of the Frisco 1522, but it seems to be the one of the few I've seen built out of Lego. (this loco is the only other 1522 I've found and it really blows mine away. ) The model you see here has been my dream ever since I was 5 or six years old and rode behind the steamer on one of it's last public trips. (I don't remember much of the trip, but I do remember the sense of awe and respect for the power of steam after seeing the loco pull past us on it's journey back to the museum and into what looks to be permanent retirement.) The cab walls on both model and real engine have the name of the railroad (Frisco) on it's side, while the number of the loco (1522) goes on the tender sides. The way to do this is using printed 1 x 1 tiles. The real engine is publicly displayed at the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis, Missouri. The Lego model of the loco is sitting on the front of the loco, just above the cowcatcher. Here is the most recent LDD file for the engine and tender. NOTES: Hopefully next year the Frisco 1522 and Milwaukee Road Bi-Polar will be built in real bricks, ready to be displayed beside the Southern Pacific 4460 and the GM Aerotrain that I already own. Please, if you have any complaints, praise, questions, or anything like that, please post it below. Feedback is always welcome, and I would like some advice on things I could improve on. Thanks in advance! EDIT 9/28/17: Updated ldd file and added new pictures. The device in between the two domes (I forgot it's technical name, "feed water heater" maybe?) is now more like the real engine, with two cylinders instead of none like I had before. This engine should be built by early next year. EDIT 10/6/17: the parts for the Frisco 4-8-2 steam loco + '57 Plymouth Fury parts are finally here! NOTE: Two tender wheels and all the letters / numbers are not here because I need to place that order separately later on by myself. So it's really not all here, but it's about 99% arrived. EDIT 10/27/17: Here we can see my newest brick-built model, Frisco 1522 (4-8-2 "Mountain" type) meeting my long-built Southern Pacific 4460 (4-8-4 "Northern" type). More close-up pictures of the 1522 model coming this weekend! UPDATE: Real life pictures added! Above you can see it next to my other already-built Museum of Transportation models.
  3. This was built for the Colossal Battle Contest V, specifically the Dread Ambushers category. I have always enjoyed building dwarven style creations, and had wanted to do another for a while. The tower was somewhat influenced by dwarven towers in skyrim. This also gave me a great opportunity to use the polar bear in a build. The dwarves of Staor have many small outposts around the mountain that serve as defensive bastions, and gates into their underground kingdom. Some unfriendly neighboring trolls have planned an ambush and scaled down the craggy mountain slopes in an attack on the dwarves. Little do they realize that they too may be on the receiving end of an ambush. More pics. Thanks for looking, comments and criticism welcome
  4. I wanted to create some different areas based on the four elements represented by the four main elves, I've mixed parts from all kinds of different sets to create these places. This one is the earth themed home for Farran the Earth Elf. I wanted it to be part cottage, part treehouse. It's mostly parts from The Elves Treetop Hideaway and the Ewok Village sets. I attached my waterfall cave alongside the treehouse I also made a fire themed volcano cave with a tall treehouse/tower neighbouring it. It's mostly made from a Lego Friends set that has a cabin and a waterfall. I kept the cabin and built the tower above it and changed the waterfall into a volcano. I've created a workshop for the Air Elf Aira in one section of the tower with a bedroom above it, an observing platform with a telescope above that and a turret room on the top. The webisodes show that Azari the fire elf is homeless and just crashes with the other elves, but I've given her a warm place to sleep inside the volcano. I kept the camp beds in the cabin for the humans to sleep in when they visit Elvendale. And here's some random pictures..
  5. Hi guys, after doing a large build for the SJ17 I did not have much motivation for a new large project immediatly. Then I remembered how I have many uncompleted Age of Mitgardia builds left to do :P Here is my take on the tower phase one! My first focus was on the rockwork, and when I started the tower I had no idea where it was going, but im quite pleased with the result.
  6. The Samurai Code represents an ancient Japanese village in Feudal Japan. The courtyard on top of the grand stair case has a samurai dojo, shinto shrine, and Japanese bell. Stunning waterfalls, ponds, rivers, caves, rice fields, volcano, and Japanese characters throughout. Play features like power functions and zip line. Illuminates with LED lights. Please support my Idea project! Thanks for viewing! :-) Lego Samurai Code by Ben Pitchford, on Flickr Lego Samurai Code by Ben Pitchford, on Flickr Lego Samurai Code by Ben Pitchford, on Flickr Check out my Idea project: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/142449 More High Res Pics: https://www.flickr.c...57668066439040/ Time Lapse Video:
  7. This past week, the local LUG, Cactus Brick, put on a display at the Phoenix Comicon. The display contained a new pirate section, a large town with an enhanced railway system, and a large Star Wars collection. Here is a video highlighting the various builds.
  8. So this has been a REALLY long-term project of ours but we're finally making some progress. Godwins Hollow was originally conceived as the place that the LEGO Agents would defend from the menacing henchmen of INFERNO! All respectable evil-doers need a secret lair and this is the start of theirs! Once it's completed we're hoping to have two full levels underneath the mountain, trap doors revealing weapon systems, launch bays, and all of the other despicable stuff an Inferno HQ should have. Once you scroll thru the pics below you'll be able to see we've made some significant progress on the base level both inside and out. The main hover jeep garage, mountain exit, and repair bay are all in place. There is a personnel elevator to take you to the command center and eventually on to the next underground level, and two mech bays for the Inferno mechs. So please take a look at what we've done so far and feel free to leave any feedback you'd like. Enjoy! As always, there are more pics on our Flickr page and over on MOC Pages. Thanks for checking it out.
  9. [GBW] - CP 1 - EROTEMA – HOW TO PREPARE FOR AN INVASION There is a meeting at the Erotema´s Army Headquarters. Two officers of the Army Staff give instructions to prepare Erotema against an invasion from Briolui, and there is an officer of the Combat Engineers Brigade and another from the Mountain Brigade. There are also orders to improve Refnor´s and Filace´s land defenses. PREPAR1 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Combat Engineers have many main functions: provide protection for their own troops by building shelters and other useful structures; provide mobility by clearing mine fields or building roads or bridges; and impair enemy movements by laying mines or preventing the use of bridges, roads, etc. This is what our 4-strong Combat Engineers squad is doing today. They have to prepare explosive charges in a bridge that leads to the capital town of Erotema, located in grid D4. It will be not the only bridge being prepared for an eventual invasion, of course. All the main bridges are to be prepared for an invasion (in grid E4 also). IMG_20170401_095522 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr IMG_20170401_095541 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr This bridge can hold the weight of a 70-ton MBT at a time (no more than 70 tons at the same time), so it is strategic for the defense of Erotema. Here we can see the squad leader discussing where to place the charges and the amount of TNT to set. dialogo ingenieros by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr They decide to go down rappelling. The bridge is completed and ready to be blasted if necessary. This other bridge is easier to sabotage, and they use the zodiac to set the charges. ZODIAC1 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr They are struggling with the water to complete their mission. zodiac2 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Beaches must be prepared too, in grids C3-C4-B4-B5-B6-C6. They are laying an anti-tank mine. The Erotema Army has 2 types of anti-tank mines. Those which blast by pressure and anti-handling land mines. The latter can´t be moved and will blast if a heavy vehicle passes by very close. IMG_20170329_205909 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Walls also provide protection. These group of builders have selected a place close to the border with BRIOLUI to raise a wall, in grids E4-E5 and in the borders of REFNOR with other RON nations (grids E5-E6-F6-F7-E7-D7). The wall also covers the borders of EROTEMA with the allies FILACE and REFNOR (C3-D3-D4-E4-E5-D5-D6). IMG_20170401_113817 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr The wall is very high, more than 3 metres, and has machine guns, grenade launchers and detection devices all along it. IMG_20170401_114058 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr In another part of the country we have a brave squad of the Mountain brigade. They have the order to set up an anti-tank sites in a hilltop, and this is only one of many. Grids G3 and E5 in Filace, Erotema and Refnor. HILLTOP1 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr HILLTOP2 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr One of them must climb first and secure the way for his comrades. HILLTOP3 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Of course, it is a hard climb. HILLTOP4 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr It´s a hard work. Why? HILLTOP5 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr After a few hours they have finished. HILLTOP6 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Another view. HILLTOP7 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr And they show us how to deploy in case of a threat. HILLTOP8 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr Close up on the Anti tank missile launcher. Inspired on the TOW, it has the same features, with a Night Vision sight and possibility to engage slow helicopters. The other weapon is a more conventional grenade launcher, with two types of warhead: HEAT and fragmentation. The first one is against “hard” targets (tanks, not able to destroy but able to cripple; APCs can be blasted) and the second is for “soft” targets (HUMVEES, trucks or similar). Without wind, they can target a slow helicopter too. HILLTOP9 by green helmet spanish AFOL, en Flickr
  10. For the last KockeFest exhibition, I really wanted to try something new and not just bring along modulars buildings. I had fun building this diorama, although I admit the initial plan was much bigger than this. But then I ran out of bricks and space, and left it like this at 48x96 studs size. However, there's still a chance of continueing this MOC further as planned. I got the two Elves' sets with the dragons mostly for the parts, but then I really enjoyed playing with the dragons (thanks to my 2-year old son), that I saw a bigger potential. That's when the idea started forming, and the MOC was slowly shaping. In addition, I wanted to try different approaches building the vegetation and water features. This was my first attempt at building a waterfall, and I'm ok with this version, although it was challenging mostly because a lot of my bricks is currently unsorted, and finding the right parts (knowing I have them) was taking a lot of extra time. I recently got some trans-clear Technic bricks, and I thought of using them as support for a flying dragon, that's why I set the green dragon up in the air flying above the forrest. Another challenge of this MOC was taking pictures. Since it takes up the width of my kitchen table, it was not easy to set up a white background (the wall) and get the right light from the window on one side. I want to expand this to include also an Elven village, and perhaps add more dragons, and improve the display further, so any comments are welcome.
  11. High in the mountains sits a small temple above a serene lake. Disturbed only by the sound of the falls, the mountain is home to a peaceful tribe of monks. This is a very large piece that I've worked on for several months now. See the flickr for more information: https://www.flickr.com/photos/nxtquy/31952169970/ Other side and overview shots:
  12. This train was originally pulled by a smaller 2-6-0 "Mogul" type steam loco for the last three years , and after that the duty has passed to more powerful a 4-8-2 "Mountain" class you see below. In my fictional universe, the train starts at Chicago (Illinois), with stops at Springfield (Illinois), St. Louis (Missouri), Memphis (Tennessee) before terminating at New Orleans (Louisiana). The Emerald Express started in 1917 with a 2-6-0 Mogul, which was quickly overworked with the heavy four-car train. To solve this problem, a 4-8-2 Mountain type was built in 1935 to take over the train as a third coach was being added and the little steamer couldn't handle the job anymore. The loco you see here was cobbled together from my 2-6-0 and a lot of extra parts. This loco has a fictional backstory: This 4-8-2 (4 leading, 8 drivers, and 2 trailing wheels) Mountain – type locomotive numbered 6437 was built in the mid 1930's by Baldwin Locomotive Works. The type 6437 belongs to was designed for both freight duty and passenger traffic and as such were not streamlined. This type are basically enlarged versions of the Mountain types of 1926, and are same mechanically though the heavier weight cuts the top speed down to about 95 MPH. The Emerald Express, pulled by a overworked 2-6-0 since 1917, was upgraded with 4-8-2 number 6437 in 1936 when another coach was added to the train, and was painted a dark green to match the heavy-weight rolling stock. The detailed cab features many gauges and the firebox door. The name of the railroad (Brick Railway Systems) goes on the tender walls, while 6437 goes on the cab sides. Combination baggage and passenger car, which I call an "express baggage", though it is actually called a combine in real railroad slang. Three identical coaches. Can you guess which one is the newer one? The observation car of the Emerald Express. The letters BRS stand for Brick Railway Systems, the owner of the train. EDIT 11/5/16: Added newer engine pics and ldd file for engine and tender as seen here. EDIT 12/9/16: Put in pictures of version three of the engine, with the placement of the domes on the boiler revised and the headlight moved to atop the boiler. Comments, questions, and complaints are always welcome, so please give feedback!
  13. I was on vacation some time ago and I stayed with my family. They had some old LEGO from the 90's, mostly City and Western. Of course I had to tackle this mass of plastic to see what can be done :) So, it's not my usual build, but it gave me a lot of fun and some appreciation for the parts palette we have today :) I'm sorry for the picture quality, I did not have any whote background save for the table cloth with lots of patterns on it ;) Full gallery is here: http://bricksafe.com/pages/Mestari/mountain-hut---retro-style
  14. Life in Nordheim

    The completed collab that John and I built for Brickfair VA 2016 where it won Best Castle/Knights. The base is 130×98 studs making it our largest build ever, and it weighs a whopping 87 pounds! Which is 56 pounds more than our next largest build, which was our big collab build last year, Katoren. Every building has a full interior and all the doors actually open. We tried to include tons of little details, and there are some interesting easter eggs to look for: sig figs, thieves, snowball fights, goats, dragons, fishermen, and custom weapons. You can see more pictures of the 7 individual modules on their own build pages: Nordheim Docks, Nordheim Paddock, Nordheim Harbormaster, Nordheim Farmhouse, Nordheim Armory, Nordheim Greathouse, and Nordheim Fjall. Nordheim is a bustling city in Mitgardia. Its harbor and Dwarven mine make it a center of commerce, while its strong walls offer protection from the Northern wilderness. There are more pictures on brickbuilt. We hope you enjoy our latest and biggest collaboration
  15. Nordheim Fjall

    The 7th and final section of my Nordheim collab with Isaac. You can see the others here: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th. This module especially was a collab effort, with Isaac doing a lot of the rockwork, while I built interiors, and some of the windows/entrances into the mountain. Creating a dwarven look was quite fun, and allowed for some interesting parts use. All the doors open and close, including a sliding door that serves as the entrance to the treasury. Fjall mountain houses a large house of dwarves that keep busy mining new metals and refining their smithing techniques. They have several trained dragons which serve as a scout force. Their rumored wealth is a matter of some debate among the Nordheim townfolk, as none have actually entered the secret treasury. Lots more pictures on Brickbuilt The full layout will be revealed sometime next week. As always, C&C is very welcome
  16. All my "painted" LEGO photos go in this thread. Here is a link to the flickr page with bigger versions of the pic (If anyone wants them!): https://www.flickr.c...s/55973205@N08/ NOTE: All the effects were done in the (free) Google photos. Locomotive Breath A new locomotive joins the group of built LEGO projects. To commemorate this event, I turned a simple photo into what I think looks like a painting with both 4460 (a 4-8-4 GS-6 Daylight) and the new loco, 6847 (a streamlined 4-8-2 Mountain type). The Sound of Silence Night time at the railroad yard sometime in the late 1960's, and it is almost as quiet as a graveyard. The railroad industry is on life support and yet sill bleeding money at this point in time, with lines of badly maintained and to-be-scrapped engines growing longer every month. Even Brick Railway systems is feeling the pain, and has sidelined streamlined steam locomotive 6847 in order to have it be "eventually" replaced by diesels. (this decision would late be reversed) Elsewhere, Penn Station in New York City is being destroyed and Amtrak is being set in motion while the giant railroad Penn Central is in it's death throes. "and the words of the prophets are written on the station halls, loco walls." Up around the Bend The Emerald Express (headed by 2-6-0 'Mogul" 4613) rounds a tight curve as it heads out of the city of Saint Louis and onto the south-bound mainline track between the Gateway to the West and New Orleans sometime in 1923. The train has stopped here for just a few minutes (long enough for a picture!) as a switch was misaligned and needed to be hand thrown. "Their's a place up ahead and and I'm going, just as fast as my feet can fly!" This photograph was taken at Fort Legoredo station in 1893 and features Engine number 1 (a 4-4-0 American type) and it's crew of three. The crew are as follows: On track: Leroy McCoy - fireman On platform: Sylvester Rhodes - road foreman On cow-catcher: Alex J. - locomotive engineer The 1870's vintage steamer had just been to the company machine shop and had it's balloon stack removed and the engine converted to burn coal when this picture was taken. These modifications were later backdated in the 1920's to allow to the engine to star in Wild Western movies until being retired and donated in 1967. In 2016, the balloon stack was removed again and the engine returned to steam once more with coal as it's fuel. Break on Through (To the Other Side) Here we see engine streamlined 4-8-2 "Mountain"-type 6847 roaring through the eastern end of the Raindance Ridge Tunnel sometime in the early 1960's. This tunnel was a bottleneck for traffic for many years, but land ownership issues concerning the Native American tribe who originally owned the land on which it sits caused many issues. The land was apparently never sold to the railroads but was stolen and the law requires all railroad land not proved to be owned by said railroad goes back to the previous owner: the Native American tribe. So, after a decade of legal wrangling, the tunnel was sold to the railroad for a quite large sum of money in 1975. This allowed the second tunnel to be built for eastern traffic about a half mile downstream of the original 1880 alignment, with the original tunnel is used only for West bound trains. Take the last train to Clarksville The date is sometime in Summer of 1965, the place is Clarksville Grand Central Terminal railroad station, just after the last train has left. The usually busy station tracks are now deserted except for a lone tank engine used for getting coaches ready for their next journey and pulling passenger trains through the washer and onto the servicing tracks. At this midnight hour, the station is quiet and even the steam engine seems to have gone nearly silent, with just a wisp of smoke coming from it's stack. Soon, however, the first sun rays and early Monday morning commuter trains will be arriving and the station will hustle and bustle with the little steam loco running to and fro once more. Dream Weaver "I've just closed my eyes again, and climbed aboard the Dream Weaver train..." I was actually deciding what to call this photo when this Gary Wright song came on the radio. Coincidentally, it features a train in it's lyrics and so the choice to use it was easy. I edited the picture using the free Google photos service, and made it look like it was taken place at night. The engines featured are the General Motors Aerotrain, Southern Pacific 4-8-4 "Warbaby" Daylight, and my fictional Brick Railways Systems streamlined 4-8-2. Mind the Generation Gap Here we see my 1920's Steam locomotive (a 2-8-2 Mikado) meeting it's replacement in freight hauling, a 1950's Diesel engine (MRS-1, to be precise). The Mikado is pulling it's last train before retirement and eventual scrapping while the MRS-1 has just been delivered factory-fresh from ALCO. In reality, no one is getting replaced / scrapped,, as both engines will be still used in their respective railroad eras, which do not overlap much. (I should be building the diesel later this year!) Also, the MRS-1 was a military model, and was not sold to civilian railroads until it became surplus to the US Army's needs in the mid 1970's. Enjoy! I hope this was okay to post here....
  17. Hello everyone . A week ago I made a new castle wolfpack and I've added things lately . I hope you like it.
  18. A rare snow day here in NC has allowed me to catch up and post some pictures of my second real attempt at a MOC. I built the landscape first, focusing on the small ridge and the carved staircase. I wanted to add some ruins next, but they looked pretty bad since I had no real idea of the original structure in my mind. Ended up building a small fortress. The idea is that this is high up in a pass, so resources were limited and its not the most imposing barrier ever built; just something to keep small raiding parties from using the pass to enter the Kingdom. Long term I would love to actually build the mountain walls on either side as well as some space behind the fortress for the garrison (which may prove cost prohibitive); for now, you will just have to use your imagination and trust me when I say its in a pass Front: IMG_2864 by John Compton, on Flickr Back (to be filled in later) IMG_2923 by John Compton, on Flickr Passage in IMG_2932 by John Compton, on Flickr Watch out for Rocks!

  20. MOC: A Castle... in town!

    Hello everybody going against any reasonable regolutation for construction, I decided to build a castle near my volcano. The Castle is also near the beach. Here some pics: There is an external wall and an inner garden with an old tree: You can see a video of my layout here: Hope you like and have suggestions for improving it
  21. Hello everyone, about a year ago I finally got my hands on my favourite childhoods castle, the King's Mountain Fortress (set no. 6081). If I remember correctly it was the 1990 Lego catalouge, and I remember drooling over it and trying to rebuild my sister's Rock Island Refuge 6273 into it. That ugly raised plate actually made the castle look that much more fun in my childs eyes than other castles that were available at the time. So as I was saying about a year ago I begoten the set 6081, the King's Mountain Fortress but in the same time I got my hands on a great deal for the Black Falcons castle the 6074 set. After all those childhood's hours and days daydreaming of it and finally building it, I was actually a bit dissapointed with it. The Black Falcon's castle was far prettier to me now. So decided to uncostruct both and try to make my vision of the classic King's mountain fortress. All the parts used are those two sets and the big ugly raised plate (added the iron railing gates and some minor pieces later), plus I partially used for inspiration one poster I admired when I was a kid.. a huge scene of "what you can do with castle lego", so this is what it turned into. Nothing special, just a classic rework of a classic lego castle. (btw, I really hate the raised plate, but it's good for something when you don't have enough legos to build the "mountain" yourself) That's it folks :)
  22. Hello everyone I think my layout is now at a stage that I can present it as a whole to the community. As you will see I have still some space to expand it and there are quite a few buildings that I wish to rebuild/redesign to make them better. My layout has a classic 80/90 inspiration and that's why most of the new sets I have are from the creator/expert line. here it is a video showing the whole layout with the trains and the new ferris wheel motorised: As you can notice from the video, since I love trains, a large parte of the table is covered by rails. There are three stations. 1) Legoland C.le (C.le stands for Centrale in italian, the main station) 2) another smaller station, located on the sea-side and near the vulcano called Lego Ville: and another station that serves the airport: The town centre of Legoland features a square with a Market, a Pizzeria, and a Carrousel, the ruins of ancient abbey, always crowded by visitors, the town-hall (the yellow-brown building) and - of course - a police station: There is a residential area, which is mostly restaurant and country-side with a small beach: The main Harbour of the town, with a bridge for the trains, and a restaurant in an ancient mill: Finally there is the city area, with two main tall buildings: well, there are more ideas to develop my city but I want to hear what do you think so far
  23. I love the work of H.P. Lovecraft, so I decided to build a diorama inspired by his story "At The Mountains Of Madness" after recently re-reading it. Here you have some more views of the "Elder Thing" and some artist's paintings of how they imagined it to look like...
  24. Here is a fun way to make epic scenes using a very few number of pieces! Micro castle is awesome. Wade through danger Side Back That's MY treasure Side Microscale is really fun since you can build huge scenes with only 1/10th of the pieces! Helps on space and budget ;) I submitted this to LEGO Ideas, so it may even be made into a set one day! You can help make it happen if you vote for it here! Thank you for your time!
  25. [MOC] Elvin Manor

    Hello, everyone, here is my most recent MOC which I will be adding to the CCC XII. A clan of elves live in a beautiful manor protected by the natural surrounding mountains and cliffs. They are currently being confronted by members of a friendly clan to settle a dispute. More pictures on my Brickshelf page.
