  1. So, I had a lot of ambition, and good ideas for my studless remake. Originally, I was going to do a studless version of set 6957 Solar Snooper, a set from my childhood. Unfortunately, my mental illness kicked in, and I was left at a week before the original deadline with no model to enter. But, I wanted to build something, so I looked at Technicopedia for inspiration, and landed on set 858 Auto Engines. This set is unique, because as many Technic sets feature an engine, only this one is dedicated to engines. The model I chose was the 'Boxer" engine, as that is one that I could improve on, without adding any functions. Now, the original engine is not actually a boxer, as the pistons do not reach top dead center at the same time. In addition, a 6 cylinder boxer should have the pistons clocked 120 degrees apart, which would have been impossible to do with the parts at the time. With all of the advanced parts introduced since 1980, I was able to correct both of these issues. Now, the engine is a proper boxer, with the pistons clocked 120 degrees apart. Aside from that, there is one other major functional difference. On the original model, the distributor is just a rotating shaft that does not actually do anything. On my model, I was able to add a rotating contact piece that connects to each of the spark plug wires in sequence. The engine also has a belt driven fan, just like the original. My model also features the detailed exhaust pipes and spark plug wires. As for scale, I think my model is about 50% larger, given that I used 3 stud diameter pistons, versus the 2 stud pistons of the original. But, the scale increase allowed me to make the crankshaft and pistons much more realistic and functional. Believe it or not, the fan was actually one of the biggest sticking points for me in terms of what to use. No brick built fan felt right, so I used the fan tail from 8068, which is actually a repurposed wheel cover. Unlike the original, the belts are configured in such a way that they can be added easily, without any bent paper clips. Size comparison with 42123. My engine is roughly the same width, and about 2/3rds the length. LDD cutaway to show the crankshaft. Video:(No Sound) So, that's my entry, a new version of the 858 Boxer engine.
  2. It's finally here - my studless remake of the very first Technic helicopter: It's been a bit of a long journey to get here, not only because of the work put into this model, but also because of the many failed TC15 entry ideas... Originally, I had planed on building a replica of the Hoversurf S3 2019 Hoverbike (which is basically a quadcopter you can ride on), but the small size of Lego propellers restricted me to such a small size, that I just couldn't fit any functions into it. Next, continuing the idea of some sort of quadcopter, I did some googling for other quadrotor aircraft, and although I managed to find some (in particular, the Curtiss-Wright VZ-7 and X-19), that idea also failed... Then, after a few days of thinking, I decided to just make something completely different - a flight simulator, based on the 8485 Technic Control Center. With this idea, I actually managed to make enough progress to post a WIP topic, and stuck with it for a several weeks, until I sadly had to abandon that as well... Finally, after trying and abandoning a few other ideas, and with only a few weeks left before the contest deadline, I stumbled across the idea of making a modern studless version of set 852 - the very first Technic helicopter, and one of the original four Technic sets released in 1977: Fast forward 3 weeks, the contest deadline has thankfully extended by 2 weeks (thanks @Jim ), and I've finally finished building... Features: Full studless construction - not a single stud in sight! Near perfect 3/4 scale (relative to the original set). Accurate collective rotor pitch control - unlike the original, where the rotor pitch is decreased when the swash plate rises. Manually powered drive train - can also be motorized, as seen in the video.

  3. I really liked Nexo Knights, and I really liked all the little nods towards older castle themes without established locations potentially taking place in its world. So, I decided to try and create a Nexo Knights-refurbished version of two classic sets from the Fright Knights using LDD: Witch's Magic Manor & Night Lord's Castle, albeit combined into one, so that the Magic Manor serves as a sort of hideout/base under the Night Lord's Castle. The bit that I am currently stuck on is a suitable castle gate. The simple wooden doors of the official Knighton Castle set looked a bit weird, and as such I am trying to create a more sci-fi looking portcullis structure or portcullis alternative, in tr. neon orange of course. So far, I have tried using a bunch of 30064 stud/stick pieces (difficult to create a suitably sized structure without running into difficulty connecting the two sets of bars into a structure that can move as a single piece), the large sword pieces from Clay's mechsuit (as with the original use, strange-looking due to the lack of depth combined with the pattern and width) and finally the 4218 rolling gate pieces (serviceable, except the only source of these in tr. neon orange is over two decades old, and I'd like to actually be able to build this thing in real life at some point). If anyone has any recommendations, I'd be glad to hear them.

    Black seas barracuda rebuild

    Hey guys, iv always loved the black seas barracuda, and last year decided to try remake the kit from my childhood. I got as far as bricklinking the the hull and masts before realising that to have an original would be financially unviable because I wanted it in mint condition. Thus I realised that if I was to have one, I needed to reimagine it. With the brick bounty having redbeard at the helm of his new ship, I tried to imagine how the ship would look many years later, with a newer more tenacious crew. (Note- two surviving crew members looking s little different) anyway, hope you all like, comments and criticisms appreciated.
  5. Hi there, I'm barely active anymore but i finally finished my old WIP from the 4011 "Cabin Cruiser" remake from 1991. Its completely brick build without using hull elements. Fits about 6 Minifigs inside. For a scale comparisson i included a 1/43 scale model car i recently finished aswell. Hope you like it, comments and critics welcome, more pics will follow...

    Alienator Redux (MOC)

    Internal report: Alienator-type Units Organization: Blacktron Its purpose is causing an unignorable distraction so as to allow the strike force it carries to sneak into secure locations while local forces are occupied dealing with the vehicle. Its heavy armaments are capable of dealing significant damage to most forms of armor, and its thick plating and layered reinforcement makes it difficult to damage. Usually crewed by one armored trooper and two pilots, one of which is redundant and as such is usually part of the strike force. Equipment contained on an average Alienator-type unit is wire cutters, grappling equipment, welding tools and a hand-held circular saw, along with a variety of weapons and in units planned for long-term deployment (although it must be stated that due to their large and noticeable appearance, long term in this context refers to periods of at most 1-2 days), rations. The displayed example's armory included one small plasma pistol, one recoil-neutralized handheld railgun, a blade suited for underhand wielding, and a bashing/disarming ring upon recovery. Play features: removable roof, windshield opens, classic shuffle-walk mechanism, deployable ladder and ball joint mounted stud shooter turrets. This one was rather fun to make. I stole the foot design from Nexo Knights' Stone Colossus, and while I initially planned to make the legs flexible enough to walk normally, once I realized that I could actually use the classic mechanism I just had to. Of course, this is entirely unbuildable in real life due to the fact that I built this with little to no regard for the availability of certain pieces in certain colors. I just really wanted to make something focused mostly on aesthetics. Gallery LXF download (once public)

    [MOC] 60117 alternate mocs

    Hi, I've made several alternates using just the pieces from Lego city 60117 set. 1.Dump truck. Euro style dump truck with balanced color scheme. 2. Convertible. Some neat SNOT windscreen positioning and other stylish details. 3. SUV and trailer. Sleek looking SUV with a functional trailer. 4. Explorer VAN. Same like in the original design a VAN but this time it has higher clearance is more suitable for off road exploration 5. Cabrio. Dialing in some wild snot segments in the construction so that the lady has herself a cool and fast cabrio car. Thanks for watching!

    [MOC] Lego city 60121 alternate models

    Hi, All! Here are some alternate models I've made with pieces of lego city 60121 Vulcano explorer set.

SUV Thanks for watching!

    LEGO Remake

    Hi! I'm not sure this is the right forum, so feel free to move this topic. But i found news about "LEGO launch Remake". The purpose is to provide instructions for building alternative models from official sets that have been designed by fan builders (Like Rebrickable), there are (Attila Baranyai, Bertrand Lequy, Jason Allemann, Nicola Lugato, Peter Szabo, and Tomas Vit. 6 Builders for now). There's not much content there now, about 30 builds from 7 or 8 sets (all City) and unfortunately the standard of photography is pretty poor, also building instructions were created by an independent LEGO fan (Not LEGO standard instructions design). Here is the screenshot of the site:
  10. Ahh, the magnificent Lord of Skull Spiders. Many thought he was a rather weak set, sacrificing playability and some aesthetic appeal for fairly boring function. Recently, I've been playing around with system-based action figures, and, after seeing all these skull army creations pop up again, I decided to make my own version of him. I decided to make him more spiderlike, with the face of a jumping spider, the horns of a jewelled spider and of course, all eight legs, two spinnerets and two pedipalps. I made the pedipalps the smaller, female morph because I figured that, if they're too small to even be depicted in the actual set, they shouldn't actually be bulky in my MOC. Features string-shooting stud blaster spinnerets, 41 points of articulation and a stand which is supposed to hold the golden mask of skull spiders, although LDD lacks it. As far as I can tell, he's fully buildable. A better look at the stud shooter spinnerets and back. Ventral view of the big spider and his shiny. Comments and criticism appreciated!
  11. Built for the 2016 MOCAthalon, the category this time was “Classic Update.” I chose to update the Black Falcon Fortress #6074. The original featured a working drawbridge and hinging walls to allow for multiple building layouts. I kept both those features, and added a dual catapult, jail with break-away wall, great hall with fireplace and table, and a stables with working gate. There are 6 minifigs included: 4 Black Falcons, and 2 Crusaders, plus there are two horses, some extra weapons, and a treasure chest. There are 2 ladders to allow minifigs to reach the walls, and they can fold up out of the way so you can reach into the interior. See more pictures on brickbuilt Thanks for looking, I hope you enjoyed this remake of a classic set. I admit to rigorously play testing this model
  12. I finished this one recently for a change! This is also my first redux MOC, which meanse It's based on LEGO set 6897 - Rebel Hunter. The prison hatch system remains and is closely reproduced. I had to settle with trans. black instead of trans. green, because of relying on what I had at the moment in my LEGO collection. I think darker windshields are a cool alternative for Space Police 2, don't you think? I also tried to get the picture as natural as possible, without too much Photoshop effort.

    Blacksmith Shop

    What does every castle need? Obviously it's a blacksmith. maybe even two. Really depends on how quickly your knights are blunting their swords trying to kill make belief dragons. CCC XII - Castle Building A remake of the classic (is it classic yet?) set I tried to keep the character of an angular house, without making it look like its decaying, along with keeping the simple retro feel of the set. Unfortunately it doesn't open up, but I did try and replicate as many features of the house as I could. Theres some things I'd have liked to differently with more time/parts (that stone technique is parts intensive!) but as i'm heading off for about 11 days this month i figured i'm a little rushed for CCC :P One day I may rebuild it better.... maybe... Enjoy! David
  14. Hello fellow Eurobrickers, Have you ever wondered how set 10228 Haunted House would look like if it was to be renovated into a brand new home with a garden all around? Well, I did. Which is why I started to build this renovation about a year and a half ago. However, life got in the way of the building process and the renovation got shelved until an unspecified date. However, it was only 2 weeks ago that I wanted to restart the renovation and got to building, with the following result (click to view larger image): However, that was when I realised there were a lot of bricks I didn't have in my collection that I needed for this renovation, so I got to Bricklinking. Ultimately, I ended up with 12 Bricklink orders with a total amount of 200 euros. And even then I wasn't done with ordering parts yet. There are still some parts that need to be ordered, but I'll only order them when the build calls for it. For example, I've already ordered quite a lot of blue slopes for the roof. Yesterday, I continued the build and ended up with the following WIP (click to view larger image): I won't be able to build much due to life getting in the way, but I'll try my best to keep you guys updated once or twice a week. Anyway, enough for my rambling. Please enjoy and let me know what you think of this Haunted House Makeover. See my Brickshelf for more photos.
  15. During March i took part in the MocAthalon over at MocPages (kinda using it as a spur to get out of a building slump, really) One of the catagories i was handed was to remodel a pre-2003 set of my choice. I decided to remodel the classic space set "One-man spaceship" (set # 918) from 1979, as I had this set as a child and it was always one of my favourites - i can't count the number of times i pulled it apart and reassembled it. :) I tried to keep the relative size, shape, colours and functions of my version similar to the original, whilst also adding more curves and detail. I am not really much of a space builder (haven't built a spaceship in years!), but i've recently been perusing the excellent "Lego Space: Building the Future", by Peter Reid and Tim Goddard, and i guess i've been trying to channel some of the excellent models in that book. I do like the front-on angle of the ship - it gives a good view of the major design change i made in placing the engines under the wings. I also wanted the cockpit to sit low in body of the ship, just like the original. It worked out well i think and is one of my fav aspects of the build. :) I also wanted to add storage doors at the rear of the ship, just like the original model. Overview, showing all the detail i managed to fit on the surface of the ship. As the original was a perfectly symmetrical model, i made the detailling on my version symmetrical as well. The yellow stripes on the wing are my small nod to the ship's bigger cousin, the "Galaxy Explorer" (set # 928); which i also had and loved. :) Here we see the revamped 918 delivering some much-needed Bricklink supplies to a far-flung outpost of the galaxy! ;) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Btw, if there are any space builders out there that might have some constructive criticism for me on this build, it'd be muchly appreciated! (I'm not much of a space builder and i'm always looking to improve) Ta for looking peeps. :)
