  1. Hello guys, I haven't posted anythig here for a while. I have been working on this Nissan R32 GTR even before the Mazda RX-7 was completed. I was scared that I would not be able to accomplish a build worthy of wearing the legendary "Godzilla" name. Thats why I did not post any WIP Pictures earlier. But now I feel like the build has progressed enough that quitting is out of the question, and any obstacles have been cleared already. I am fairly pleased with the build now, but it was a long way to get here. I hope you like it too. Yes, I can get these wheels I used for the taillights in transparent red as well, dont underestimate the power of the dark side ;) The Car has an AWD system, hooked up to a 6-Speed manual transmission powered by the RB26 with a single turbo conversion. Sorry for the bad quality pics, black is really hard to photograph. I am looking forward to your comments, improvement ideas and whatever else in the comments. Stay safe out there. Gray Gear

    [MOC] Walt Disney World skylines

    Welcome to "The Happiest Place on Earth!" I designed a skyline for each of the four main Walt Disney World parks - with each park's primary icon in the center of each. The length of each skyline is the same (and identical length to the official London and Paris skyline sets). Any one who may be interested in instructions can find them here and on Rebrickable.com! MAGIC KINGDOM: EPCOT: HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS: ANIMAL KINGDOM: Let me know what you think!

    Boston - Architecture Skyline

    Now that I have your attention, I'd like to present my newest MOC: A custom build of Boston, Massachusetts in the style of LEGO Architecture Skylines series From left to right: Prudential Tower, 200 Clarendon Street (John Hancock Tower), Beacon Hill, Boston Commons and Public Gardens, Massachusetts State House, Boston Customs House, Faneuil Hall, Boston Harbor, Bunker Hill Monument I was in Boston a few weeks ago, and I was inspired to create a skyline of it. It took me three weeks of many iterations to build this skyline. The piece count is higher than the usual piece count of Skylines models (over 900) because of the large scale of the buildings. The Customs House tower was the first one I built, and I could not make it smaller in any way without losing its crucial details. Everything else followed in roughly the same scale, which meant that the Prudential Tower and 200 Clarendon Street had to be extremely tall, but not exceeding the heights of the tallest official Skylines models (~32 studs). Only the Massachusetts State House is bigger than it should be, even like this it was hard to get right. 200 Clarendon Street is angled using a Technic 3-way connector and uses all manners of SNOT techniques to get the slopes on the edge, while connecting one half to the other in the plate-wide gap in the middle. This was achieved in some pieces not available in Dark Azure, such as headlight bricks and the 1x1x2 Pieces of Resistance. The bricks from this tall structure along with all the clear plates in the Prudential Tower account for more than two-thirds of the total piece count. I also copied some of the small row-houses from the new Paris and San Francisco models for the houses on Beacon Hill, as that was too Iconic to omit from a model of Boston.
  8. For the last month I have been designing skylines for the three "The Lord of the Rings" movies/books! "The Fellowship of the Ring" features the Shire, Bree, Weathertop, Ford of Bruinen, Rivendell, Moria (behind Rivendell), the Doors of Durin, and the Gates of Argonath. Moria is hidden behind Rivendell :) "The Two Towers" features Edoras (with the Golden Hall), Fangorn Forest (with micro Ents), Isengard (with Orthanc), the Dead Marshes, and Helm's Deep. Helm's Deep has a play feature built it that allows you to launch part of the fortified wall into the air to reenact the explosion. Here is a view looking down over the Dead Marshes: "The Return of the King" features Minas Tirith, The Black Gate, Barad-dur, the Tower of Cirith Ungol (with hidden Shelob on the back), and Mount Doom. Mount Doom's tiny play feature allows you to drop the ring into the top and it will come out the backside. And here is a view of all three of them lined up together. Anyone interested in seeing additional views can check out my Instagram page (@BenBuildsLego). Instructions are also available for all three on Rebrickable and via the link in my Instagram bio. Let me know what you think of them!

    [MOC] "Back to the Future" skyline

    "Please excuse the crudity of this model. I didn't have time to build it to scale or paint it." - Doc Brown This MOC is built in the style of the Architecture skyline series, and it features the evolution of the famous Hill Valley Clock Tower in 1885, 1955, and 2015! Let me know what you think! For anyone interested, instructions for an ever so slightly modified version can be found here and on Rebrickable.com.
  10. I received a lot of positive feedback on my "A New Hope" skyline, so here is the next installment: "The Empire Strikes Back." I'm currently working on creating a skyline with the same dimensions for each Star Wars film - you can see "Rogue One," and "Solo" on my Instagram and Flickr pages. I also made some slight modifications to the design to make the pieces more affordable. Anyone interested can find the instructions here.

    [MOC] Bilbao Skyline

    It's been a while since I posted a MOC, but I've been working behind the scenes to bring new projects. I'd been wanting to do a model of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao for quite a long time, but had never got around to doing it. A recent trip to the city of Bilbao reignited that idea, but also made me realise the diversity of Bilbao and how well-suited it would be for an Architecture Skyline set. I therefore set off, trying to make the best buildings possible in the finest layout, but making them within a piece margin (none less than 300 pieces and none more than 600), as if I were to be a real designer. The final model has 415 pieces right in between Sydney and Chicago at an estimate price of ~ $40. I've tried to make the buildings like real designers would, but I also added some smaller low-height structures like a metro entrance (a "fosterito"), and two sculptures "Maman", by Louise Bourgeois and "Tall Tree and the Eye" by Anish Kapoor. Here are all the buildings and structures included: By clicking the image, you can find an interactive image in Flickr with links to images of the real buildings. Some information of the structures chosen Guggenheim Bilbao Museoa: A must-have. Gehry is the closest we have today to an artist-architect, so his work in general is something I adore. The Guggenheim is, without a doubt, his finest work. Building this small model was rather tough, because I couldn't pull off all the angles in Gehry's building and opted for a more simplified and less realistic version. I'm particularly proud of the tallest point in the build, the one that, in the real building, gives to the atrium a flower-shaped ceiling, as I've been able to tilt it using a sausage element! This was rendered in Blender using the magnificent Mecabricks material palette. I chose the "Silver Ink" colour, which is one that is applied on other pieces that has sort of a grainy surface. I changed slightly the material of the template to give it a warmer, yellower tone. "Maman" and "Tall Tree and the Eye" are the sculptures located on the side of the Guggenheim that faces "la ría". Both Bourgeois and Kapoor's sculptures have single pieces in Lego that represent them well, one a spider, the other the ice cream cone piece. I wanted to add "Puppy" by Jeff Koons, but I had no space for it as, in real life, it sits on the opposite side of the museum, and I found no good way of representing its flowery surface. Iberdrola Dorrea: This tower is the tallest on the whole Basque Country and is quite imposing. I must admit that I think it's too close together to the Guggenheim, but the tower itself is very pretty and contrasts it nicely. Unlike in official skylines, these two buildings and Isozaki Atea are positioned exactly like in real life. The real tower has the shape of an isosceles tringle with rounded sides, which I translated with the piece 6575 (https://brickset.com/parts/design-6575). Isozaki Atea: These towers are a product of what is called the "Guggenheim effect", architects of worldwide importance building projects around the Guggenheim. I chose these two towers as they have quite an impact on Bilbao's skyline and because the unaligned buildings on the bottom part as just very interesting. Isozaki Atea is comprised of several other buildings of less interest. Carola Garabia: After so many modern buildings, I had to somehow represent Bilbao's industrial past. Bilbao was famous for the iron manufacturing that took place, especially the boatmaking industry. This red crane is located on an old shipyard (in real Bilbao, it would be right of Iberdrola Tower). The crane adds a splash of colour to an otherwise rather dull-coloured skyline. The crane gets its name from a woman named "Carola", who always walked across the bridge in front of the shipyard. She was apparently so beautiful that the workers stopped working just to admire her. "Fosterito" (Bilbao metro entrance): Sir Norman Foster, the architect and engineer is responsible for the design of the Bilbao metro. One of the most recognisable features of his design are the glass curved metro entrances that locals have nicknamed "fosteritos", honouring him. Note: The names are in Basque, the original language of the Basque Country before Spanish became official. Note 2: I promise I’m working on a new modular, it’s been a while since I posted Disco 2000. Note 3: This was built in LDD and Mecabricks and rendered in Blender. A 3D model can be found here: https://www.mecabricks.com/en/models/KZvm9MeQvG6 Hope you like this model, but please, if you don't like something, just say it and be honest; it's the only way for me to become a better builder. Have a nice day!

    [MOC] "A New Hope" Skyline

    I designed a skyline in the manner of the Architecture skyline series for "A New Hope." The design features Tatooine, the Death Star hangar / Death Star, and Yavin IV. Let me know what you think! I made instructions for this build after some clean-up and minor alterations (instructions can be accessed here). You can also follow the fun on Instagram @BenBuildsLego!
  13. This years Building Contest for the 15th Eurobricks-Event in Günzburg was: Build your own town in style of the LEGO Architecture Skyline Series. The idea behind it was to learn even more about each other. The rules were easy and as following: Use LEGO to build a skyline in style of the LEGO Architecture Skylines. Use some nice buildings or interesting sight seeing spots of the town you live in. (If it would be suuuper small and there is a bigger town near by I guess it would be fine to use that town. But e.g. don't build the skyline of Copenhagen if you would live in Billund) Keep it in roughly the same size as the models form LEGO. A nice paper print out with some informations about the skyline would be nice too. Have fun! Here are all the amazing Skylines together in one Picture and some impressions of the presentation Special thanks to CopMike for supplying us all with beautiful printed 1x8 tiles with the city names. And now here we go for all the individual entries: Ravensburg, Germany "The City of Games" (by Skalldyr) for more detailed pictures and some behind the scenes building techniques just click here!
  14. From left to right: Oldtown, King's Landing, Highgarden, Casterly Rock, Riverrun, the Eyrie, and Winterfell. I wanted to do a Lego Architecture Skyline of the seats of powers of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. Unfortunately, not all of them have been seen in the show. So Oldtown subbed in for Sunspear and King's Landing subbed in for Storm's End. After reviewing the entire build, I streamlined the parts usage to be more affordable and created instructions, which can be accessed here for anyone who might be interested. You can also find me on Instagram @BenBuildsLego.
  15. This is my creation of Westeros where the epic fantasy saga “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R. R. Martin and the HBO show “Game Of Thrones” mainly take place. The project fits in the Architecture Skyline theme. Hope you like it, any constructive comments and suggestions are welcome. More photos and instructions I recreated six of the most important locations of the show, going from south to north: Sunspear – The seat of House Martell and the capital of Dorne King's Landing – The capital of the Seven Kingdoms Pyke – The seat of House Greyjoy The Twins – The seat of House Frey Winterfell – The seat of House Stark, is considered to be the capital of the North The Wall – The massive barrier of mostly ice stretching across the northern border of the Seven Kingdoms, defending the realm from the wildlings who live beyond Total parts: 442 Measures: 44 x 8 x 10 studs 35,5 x 7 x 8 cm 14 2,8 3,2 inches p.s. hope this section of the forum is correct :)

Join Harry in his journey in the Wizarding World and: • visit Hogwarts Castle and discover the underground secrets; the snowy Hogsmeade village; the shops of Ollivanders and Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes in Diagon Alley before escaping Gringott's subterranean vaults and the Dragon • meet Hagrid in his Hut and Aragog in the Forbidden Forest • play Quidditch • travel on board the Hogwarts Express with Hedwig from Platform 9¾; the Flying Anglia; The Knight Bus and Hagrid's Sidecar Total parts: 621 Measures: 44 x 12 x 16 studs 35.5 x 9.4 x 13 cm 13.9 x 3.7 x 5.1 inches more images instructions sample of the high quality and detailed 185 pages booklet
  17. This creation is ispired by the Star Wars universe and condensed in the LEGO format of a Skyline Architecture set. There are a lot of scenes, locations and vehicles recreated from the first two trilogies. If you can't spot them all there is a list in the following link. Instructions There are more than 790 pieces so it's jam packed :) Dimensions 792 pieces cm 37.5x 10 x 19 inch 15 x 4 x 7.5 studs 47 x 12.5 x 23.5 weight 388 gr / 13.7 oz The vehicles design have been inspired by advent calendars and other creations in microscale I found around the web. Most (if not all) of them needed to be reduced in size to fit the Skyline or adapted to be attached firmly and integrated in the little scenes that have been recreated. Hope you like it! Let me know what you think about it :) P.S. I know that maybe one for trilogy would be better or even one for movie You can find more images on my flickr page

  24. Thought I'd collect my growing series of six-wide builds into one place as my feed on Flickr is getting pretty dense. I'd struggled to get the Speed Champions cars proportioned to my liking (I ended up with slightly outrageous 10-wide P1 prototypes), meanwhile my Flickr feed has a continuous drizzle of inspiring builds done around the slightly smaller City Scale fenders and tires. Somehow this scale just works. While there are a good many builders on Flickr working at this scale and all their work inspires in some way, I would like to call out ER0L, Tom Netherton and Adrian Barbour aka BrickMonkey in particular as their approaches, shared designs and instructions went a long way to kick-starting this series of building for me. I've adopted the techniques they honed which has given me a great platform to come up with some of my own tricks. Also, there's sort of an easter-egg in all of them; rather than filling the inner spaces of the chassis with big bricks a la Speed Champions, I like to tuck in plate-built details like engines and chassis structures. These are all up on Flickr > Prototyp with plenty of photos of each if you'd like to check them out more closely. Will update here with new builds from time to time. 1972 Datsun 510 A cooler version of my college car (if I weren't so broke the and had actually hopped up my Dime); fat MiniLites tucked into some flares, front and rear skirt work, and a twin-cam engine swap under the hood. Nissan Skyline KCG10 '72 Early work on the 510 ended up developing into the even cooler, lower, sleeker, meaner Skyline GTR "Hakosuka" McLaren P1 Unrelated in every way to TLG's Speed Champions P1; very long, very low, very curvy... Even the color is opposite. Particularly proud of the trick nose build and that TT wing plate as a rear diffuser (which, interestingly enough the new 720S Speed Champions model also uses) Built up in some colorways. Ferrari 458 Italia Distantly-related to BrickMonkey's 'chibi' style Ferrari 458 caricature. Like the McLaren, this one is also quite long and low. There's a plate-built V8 tucked in the mid-rear, too. (will need to build this one in more colors, too) Honda NSX Type R Adapted from Tom Netherton's Acura NSX with a new nose, new tail, and a v6 under the rear glass. Ford Mustang GT350 Another Tom Netherton-based build. His work on the nose and side panels is fantastic stuff. I reworked chassis to move the whole roof/cockpit area back a stud in order to play up the long-hood coupe proportions. Under the hood is just enough space for a hint of plate-built V8 and the GT's strut-tower cross brace. The tail is extended and incorporates a custom exhaust and diffuser setup. Porsche 935 '77 This MOC started out as a build of a 911 street car but got sidetracked by the desire to make something a little more outrageous (and to use the Speed Champions fender/tire combo). The turbofan wheel covers and front suspension camber are small design and technique triumphs. Some good bones here for a series of stickered replicas. And yes, there's a turbocharged, air-cooled flat 6 engine under the rear hood, too.
  25. This is a quick MOC, a Lego custom build of Toronto, a city with a very fascinating skyline. All the buildings are to scale relative to each other. From left to right is the First Canadian Place, Toronto City Hall, CN Tower, Rogers Centre, and Royal Ontario Museum. It's my first microscale build.
