  1. Heddal Stave Church is the largest stave church in Norway. It was constructed at the beginning of the 13th century. I visited the church in 2019. Since then, I have been thinking about building a LEGO model of the church. But I had many other things I wanted to build. So it was only this year that I got time to build it. Here are some photos of the real church:
  2. Norwegian stave church from the Middle Ages Inspired by: Heddal Stave Church in Norway (built around year 1200) Borgund Stave Church in Norway (built around year 1200) This building is a part of a series of 21 buildings built in different architectural styles. Each building is built on one 32x32 baseplate: https://www.flickr.com/photos/66344850@N06/albums/72157708211032315

    [MOC] The Edge

    This is another model of a real building from my home town Tromsø in northern part of Norway. Clarion Hotel The Edge was opened 1.may 2014. When they started building it, there had already been some pictures in the local newspaper of how it was supposed to look when finished. And I liked the shape. The architect was inspired of some other spectacular buildings in the town: Ishavskatedralen and Polaria that I have made a model of in LEGO before. I like this type of architecture. I also like some challenges and thought all those angles looks fun and interesting to build. I settled on minifig scale (1:42) just to get as much details of the buildings as I could (there are not many). I used photos that I took myself and some floor and facade drawings to help me plan this out. This is my first LEGO MOC in this huge size so I tried to plan as well as I could. I had a few criteria beside the scale of the building, that I wanted to follow: * It needs to be easy to set up and taken down. * It needs to be stable enough for a public exhibition. * It needs to be as compact as possible when packed down. Used LEGO Duplo bricks as support columns inside. Used LEGO Technic for structural support rack/scaffolding inside to hold up the brick built walls. And it can be dismantled and packed down as a IKEA furniture set (without the umbraco keys) :) The pictures is taken on the first exhibition it was on. PKH2015 in Trondheim, Norway. Not 100% complete yet. Missing some parts that had to be substituted with the closest part I could find until the new parts arrive. The new parts has now been placed and the model is again ready for a new exhibition. PKH is short for "På Kloss Hold" that translates to "at close range" but the word "kloss" could also means like a LEGO brick. So it is a play on words. PKH is the Norwegian LUG Brikkelaugets annual meeting and exhibition. Right front facade: Left front facade: Right rear facade: Front facade: Top View: The Real Building: More pictures here. Some numbers: Real building: 42m high Model = 100cm high Number of bricks: more than 20.000 And here is a video from when I was setting it up for the first time at the first exhibition it was shown at. It was on "På Kloss Hold 2016", the Norwegian LUG Brikkelauget's yearly event. I have fixed a few things on the building since those pictures was taken: Swapped the black bricks with trans-black panel and bricks in the front where I ran out of bricks before PKH. Made the sign on top of the building. Made one of the huge air conditioning units that sits on top of the first floor in the rear right corner. Fixed some of the gaps on the roof where I had trouble finding a wedge plate that matched the angle of the wall. Fixed some other small gaps here and there. Fixed a little low wall on top of the roof of the first floor. I will maybe set out some more minifigs with bags and suitcases and a taxi in front of the hotel. But that depends on how accessible the parts are for small fingers ;) There are also a few other things that I may do with the model in the future: Around on the facade there are some vertical glass panels on the real building. But since they are made of glass they are not very visible in the day. But in the night they are lit up from behind with some cold white-bluish light. But I have not found a good way to implement this feature so it is not very visible in the day. The small posts in the front has a trans clear round 1x1 plate in every second post. On the real building those post are lit up at night. I have already made the model so it is possible to put in light here, but I have not put in the LED here yet. There are also some cranes here and there on top of the building. Those cranes lower down a basket so they can clean the facade of the building. I may put in those at a later time to. I have to find a nice way to build them in the right scale first, and here I only have pictures from below to look at.

    MOC: Long distance coach Volvo 9700

    Hello Building a coach was something I wanted to do for a long time, but now after several digital attempts I managed to build one with real bricks. The prototype was a Volvo 9700 from Norway. I chose this bus because I traveled two and a half years ago with such a bus on this route. The line is called Lofotenekspressen, Lofoten is a group of Islands in the North of Norway, Ekspressen means express in Norwegian. I tried to replicate the typical shape of the Volvo with the sloped windows and the curves on the front. There are also openable doors on the bus. Lofotenekspressen 1 by StefanEris, auf Flickr Lofotenekspressen 2 by StefanEris, auf Flickr Lofotenekspressen 3 by StefanEris, auf Flickr The doors are quite fragile so they are just for show and not made for playing with. Lofotenekspressen 4 by StefanEris, auf Flickr Just as cars in the north, also busses have additional headlights, here they are on the roof. Feel free to comment Stefan
  5. Hello all! I live in Bergen on the Norwegian west coast. It's the second largest city in Norway, with about 270,000 inhabitants (yes, really, it's tiny...) and, since I'm not originally from here and not too biased, I think I can say that it's certainly one of the most, if not the most beautiful city we have up here. At least when the sun is shining, which sadly isn't too often - Bergen has a reputation for being the rain capital of Norway... Anyway - the arguably most famous landmark in Bergen is Bryggen (Norwegian for The Wharf), which is - I quote from Wikipedia - "a series of Hanseatic commercial buildings lining the eastern side of the fjord coming into Bergen. Bryggen has since 1979 been on the UNESCO list for World Cultural Heritage sites. (...) Today, Bryggen houses tourist, souvenir, and gift shops, in addition to restaurants, pubs and museums." I first attempted to build a version of Bryggen in MLCad a couple of years ago, but gave up after I discovered that the 40 or so 1x1 dark green plates I had used didn't actually exist in any set. They still don't, and although they probably will in the near future I didn't know that when I heard about the Architecture contest at the Eurobricks Event 2014. So for this new version - which I eventually managed to finish for the contest - I worked my way around the problem. There's still a fair few rare bricks in it, but nothing that I couldn't get hold of. Typically, the 1x1 trans-clear tiles were very rare when I built this - but they're just about to be released in larger quantities in the Trevi Fountain set... I wanted to avoid making the buildings too similar, so I built them one by one, from left to right, using mainly this Wikipedia picture as my reference, trying to pick the most easily recognisable details from each building and translate them into microscale. I started with all the facades, then filled them out to four studs deep, and finished the base last. And then I had the Norwegian Certified LEGO Professional Matija Puzar engrave a tile for me, to make the MOC look as much like an official set as possible. As I don't normally build this small, this whole thing was a challenge, but a fun one, and I'm very happy with it. It didn't do particularly well at the event, but I had fun making it anyway, and I especially enjoyed moving outside my comfort zone for once. I might just do that more often - which I believe, in general, is an absolute necessity to improve as a builder. Hope you like it - thanks for watching! More pictures in the Flickr set. The finished product along with the picture I used for reference. Some of the details: And, finally, a little presentation I made to go along with it:
