  1. Hello everyone 1- I hope this subject is in the right place. 2- Sorry for my bad english I think you all have at one time or another during a construction, wanted to have a room that does not exist to carry out your project. So, you've probably imagined several over the years. 1- I imagined myself to create several in recent days (others to come) You can find them on Flickr HERE you can react on what you see. 2- Would you like to propose some already, in 3D or other? I opened a group for: - the techniques, - tutorials - new coins 1 month ago on Flickr HERE 3- Do you have any ideas? => Could you describe by embellishing an image that you would like to have? I can try to create on request if my limitation 2D (photoshop) allows it. By the way for your information, I also realized baseplates that are on Flickr. I would like your opinions, your reactions, your proposals ... TYVM Some exemples:
  2. If you remember those little clockwork robots, which used to be toys and are now prized collection articles, than you will surely recognize my representation! I've been working on this for some time now and I'm proud to say that this robot walks as well as the real thing! It uses two pullback motors, a couple cogs (gears) and 623 LEGO elements to achieve (I only hope you agree ) both good looks and great functionality. The mechanism with the incorporated motors is made to fit exactly into the case and the case comes off all in one piece (I like my modularity). The mechanism for the legs is the most simple thing ever but making it was as complicated as any of my larger MOCs, because balance played such a vital role in all of it. You can still see it wobble as it walks (I find the wobble quite indearing though ) and a lot of work went into keeping it from falling when it does. I like to think this is my best work yet, so I hope you like it just as much enjoy!!! My Flickr gallery
  3. 'Dannebrog falling from the sky'. According to legend that's what finally happened after the Danes had long been praying for victory during the Battle of Lyndanisse, Estonia in 1219. It also holds the record as the oldest continuously used national flag. Religion and nationalism aside it's my birthday tomorrow and since we Danes fancy to display our flag on such occasions I thought I'd give one of my older LEGO building techniques another run with a bit more context. As most of you already have gathered, it mainly consists of the piece 'Technic, Axle 2 Notched' in red and white, framed by SNOTed slopes, both inverted and not.
  4. Hi Community, I'm trying to resolve the construction of a pyramid type corner without using slopes, with each layer in two directions only stepping back either 1LDU or 0.5LDU whilst maintaining vertical alignment of face tile joints. Photos show what I'm trying to do but failing to keep the vertical tiles in alignment. Ahhh. This is doing my head in.

    SNOT Roads - 45 degree angles

    I've been looking at Mike Gallagher's SNOT roads, in particular this one because it joins two roads at a ~45 degree angle: http://gallaghersart.com/gallery/view/category/roads However, as you can see in the image I made below, it is not *exactly* 45 degrees. Has anyone come up with a working method of joining SNOT roads at regular angles? Thanks.

    Fort Bow

    <p>Hello Everyone, I am pleased to share with you my latest MOC. It was a very challenging build as I used for the first time a lot of SNOT techniques, including the base. This was the best solution to have the log bricks of the tower alligned horizontally and for the build to be sturdy. It is inspired from the Belgian comic "Les Tuniques Bleues" (In English, The Bluecoats"). Fort Bow appears in half a dozen albums at least. It is also the first time I am using photoshop to edit the background of the pictures.Let me know if you like this mean of sharing pictures. Anyway, here is my version of FORT BOW: The back of the fort: And here is a page from one of the albums where Fort Bow is appearing: You can go on my Flickr to see more unedited pictures.

    MOC City of Copenhagen

    [Edit: September 2nd 2016] I have finally gotten around to extending this model in the direction of Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn which are two very popular destinations of Copenhagen for both tourists and the citizens. I'll put a picture both here and also with a comment later in this thread. Lots of close-ups of the extended part in the Flickr gallery [Edit: 2014] I have now added a whole bunch of pictures both here and on flickr. If you want the historical, explanatory discription for the different buildings you will have to visit the flickr photo set. And feel free to leave a commend here or there :) Original message 2014: I'm a member of Danish LUG Byggepladen and I'm a bit of a rare poster in this wonderful forum, but here's my short story: Over the last few years one thing let to another and much later I'm finally done with my model City of Copenhagen (Denmark). It is a microscale, sporting a really twisted micro snot mosaic road system. For lack of better I have chosen to call it OAMR System — Oblique Angle Micro Road System. You won't get a more LEGO System compatible micro snot road system for this scale. I would personally love to see some different micro's (just as a contrast to those otherwise beautiful Micro Skyscraper Square Grids), perhaps depicting one of the many awesome city plans of the world or just something you make up yourself :) And once again, here is the whole photo set on flickr. The photo from LEGO World Copenhagen 2014:

    MOC: The Sideways Building

    It's finally time for me to present to you my newest MOC: The Sideways Building Designed between September 2016 and January 2017, this MOC has roughly 4500 pieces. The building's name is a bit tongue in cheek and references the fact that most of the frontal facade is built using elaborate SNOT techniques. 1x1 bricks are used sideways and offset by exactly half a brick's height to the ones above and below to create a new kind of masonry effect. The basic idea was this: This technique was not easy to pull off and made the design and build very challenging. But without further ado, here are the pictures - More images are, as usual, available at flickr. The intensive snotting on the facade also leads to the absence of the usual 'stripes' that separate the individual floors of modular buildings (where tiles and plates are used at the top & bottom). Still, my building is fully modular, as this picture shows. The floors can also be interchanged freely (except for the roof, of course). The only parts of the front facade built with studs on top is the bottom-most layer of bricks, all windows, and most of the roof. Everything else has studs facing left, right, towards you or even downwards. This also creates weird offsets - the left and right windows on the upper floors are offset by 2/5 the width of a stud! (or 3/5, depending which way you look at it...) A closer look at the masonry detail. View from the back - this is built the old fashioned way with studs facing upwards. Let's take a look inside. The left hand part of the ground floor is taken up by a pizza parlor. It has two tables for patrons to sit, but it is mostly aimed at take-away (and possibly delivery). A young couple is enjoying their pizza. Pizzas are baked in a stone oven. On the other side, there is a travel agent. As usual, the walls are decorated with posters showcasing possible travel destinations. Moving up to the first floor. A couple lives here. Behind the living room, there is a small kitchen (the wall inbetween was removed for this photo). A look inside their bedroom. The green door leads to the bathroom. A picture of that can be seen on flickr. Moving up to the second floor...The owner of this flat had the wall separating kitchen and living room knocked down to create a combined living room and kitchen. The center counter with two bar stools looks very inviting. Seems like the cat found something on the floor... Note: More pictures of the second floor apartment are available on flickr. Moving up one final time, we take a look at the stairwell... As attics go, this is actually still pretty orderly...except for the giant cobweb in one corner. Apparently, someone also used the attic for his painting at some point. That's about it Again, more pictures can be found at flickr. Looking forward to your thoughts & comments! Cheers!
  9. 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.
  10. Two weeks ago I finished an article about modern train fronts and their LEGO-interpretation in Hungarian, now I finished with translation to English so I want to share it with the community. Please note, that my English is not the best since it is not my native language, and the building techniques and part usage in this article can't cover every solution, different trains may need different ideas. I hope this article helps beginner to get started with their own designs. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2pGVpZyXf5hdDBDMnJFOVlkeDg/view
  11. Hello everyone! Today i present you my latest and most complex MOC: the AC Cobra 427. The challenge was to create a medium sized car with a complex body structure and add as many technic features as possible making it look good, functional, playable and robust. After going through lots of difficulties i have finally managed to get it done. Here is the result: It features the following: 1. working steering via steering wheel + adjustable steering wheel angle 2. front and rear independant suspension 3. rear differential 4. working V8 piston engine 5. a lever that opens the hood 6. opanble doors 7. openable trunk 8. solid structure -Images removed- More photos on Flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/27805688@N05/ P.S sorry for my bad photographing and editing skills.

    HMS Reckless (WIP)

    Presenting my latest “master work” His Majesty’s Sloop Reckless. She has been built and commissioned to replace the aging Ramcat. The new design takes inspiration for HMS Alert and other such cutters. She remains a 10 gun sloop but is now in a more appropriate fashion for a commissioned man-of-war shedding her stern gallery and overly large bowsprit. Her scale has also increased to something much more like Mini-fig scale. This renewed effort was brought on when an opportunity to participate in an exhibit of “Toys as Art” at the Morris County Museum, NJ came along. Before committing, I made a thorough inspection of my fleet to determine readiness and completion. After careful consideration I simply found Ramcat wanting. She was a prototype that just kept going and was never intended to be finished. What started as an attempt to correct a few issues, quickly turned in to a complete tear down and rebuild. The second version was about as hapless as the original though and that too wound up scrapped. For this latest iteration I went back to concept and found new inspiration. Models of Alert captured my interest and I found a lot of useful and free information to help me make a most accurate interpretation. Alas, limitations of the scale and medium have caused me to deviate from an exact replica, as is quite typical. The wealth of information on Alert and sloops of her type though made finding reasonable alternatives simple and easy. At the time of this posting, we are about two weeks from our deadline and thus two weeks from completion. She is as brick built as all considerations can make her until her rig is in place and any subsequent needs become apparent. Because she is a replacement for Old Ramcat, Nick and crew will be shifting into Reckless to resume their normal duties. Her construction technique is the same I’ve been touting for some time. This time around, however, I was able to further refine my method and take into account needs and limitations previous versions did not. Though I did try to keep the “illegal” stuff to a minimum there are still a few element which may make purists cringe. Sometimes that’s just what it takes when you’re trying to force the system to do things it was never intended to do. Thanks for taking an interest. Do check back as updates with greater detail, better images, and perhaps a bit of story worked in, are forthcoming. Go ahead and talk her up, share her around and ask me anything. If it’s not obvious I’ll tell you, I love to talk about this stuff. For more images check out Reckless here. To take a look back at her predecessor, Ramcat, click here.

    [MOC] Boxfish

    In the depths of the ocean lives a little yellow cube. Not Spongebob, nope. It is a Boxfish! I love weird fish and when I was playing around using SNOT techniques, I just had to build a little fish. A bit of forced perspective to hide that the lime green "frond" is holding up the fish, just to add something else I've not tried before, and I was done. I hope people also like this, my return to MOCing really. I've not posted much in the last year or more and I hope to turn it around in 2017.

    Mitgardian Bear Paw Sigil

    This wass my 9th entry to Colossal Castle Contest XIV. At first I wasn’t sure if I would build anything for the Historic Illumination category, but then decided it would be a good opportunity to try my hand at a mosaic. The design is based off of this image. It was quite a challenging build process, more frustrating than rewarding really. I've done a smaller version of this before: One of Mitgardia’s most iconic sigils, the bear paw represents the guild’s courage, strength, and ferocity. C&C welcome as usual, this was quite a change from my usual minifig scale buildings and landscapes

    MOC: Tiny Cargo Ship

    Hello. Quite some time ago I posted a MOC called Tiny Ocean Liner. Now I have completed another vessel that I call Tiny Cargo Ship.

    Belial

    The Belial is an advanced alien spaceship, inspired by Tibor Bedats. This one has been a slow burner...I had an enforced Lego break for over 2 years, but thankfully now I'm set up in my new house. Hope you enjoy!
  17. Here is my Barracks Phase 3 build for Age of Mitgardia. It was actually made in 2015, but it took me forever to get around to making the other barracks phases. I used SNOT 1x2 tiles for the stone walls, and quite like the stone block texture it gives. Daydelon barracks is a prominent barracks in Mitgardia, and houses from all over the guild send their sons there to be trained as warriors. In fact, it's not overly unusual for citizens of another guild to train for a time in Daydelon. Thanks for looking, your comments are always welcome
  18. One small capsule for the Series 15 astronaut, and one giant build for their continuation. Finally finished my continuation of the build from the CMF Contest. Just in time as I got 60052 today. And I really want to build it, ( maybe make a review of ) and start to MOD it ! Comments and questions appreciated as always.
  19. Its finally here! After more than two years of blood sweat and tears I bring you Hyrule Castle! This MOC has been completed for a few months but I neglected to post it here. Hope you all enjoy. More pics on my flickr!
  20. Here's my build for the third Gatehouse Phase, it is an 'old' build, in that I built it late last year, but I thought it was worth saving it to use as the final gatehouse phase, as I'm really proud of it. This is my first Castle model entirely based off of a real castle: Bodiam Castle in England. I built only the front wall, and it isn’t scaled perfectly, but I think it’s close enough to be quite recognizeable. Also I changed the bridge layout, because of space limitations. See a picture of the real Bodiam castle here: Link There’s no interior this time, though the portcullis and main doors are functional. Fun fact(s): this build weighed over 17 pounds, and used more bley tiles than any of my previous MOCs. Bodiam castle rests on a lake in southern Mitgardia, and is well known for its impressive round towers, and large gatehouse: See more pictures, here. Thanks for looking

    MOC: Tiny Ocean Liner

    Tiny Ocean Liner is my next micro MOC project for the Bricklink MOC Shop. This rendering is temporary and not for the final product (missing part is in the mail). Real photos and building instructions are in the works. Anyway, this MOC is inspired by great passenger ships of the early 1900’s, from before aviation took over. It may be tiny but this building challange is great
  22. Hey everyone! Normally I post in the Train Tech forum. I wasn't sure if this MOC belonged here, but Commander Wolf insisted that this was the correct forum. The Lombard Steam Log Hauler was the first commercially-produced vehicle to use caterpillar tracks. They were essentially a small saddle-tank steam locomotive mounted on a frame with a transmission driving a short pair of treads. The front of the vehicle was supported by a pair of skids or small wheels, which were steered to turn the vehicle. Operating the vehicle required a team of three: the engineer, the fireman, and the steersman, who sat on the small platform in front to steer the vehicle. This model uses the same general SNOT-based boiler as my narrow-gauge single Fairlie locomotive. As was the case for that model, I mostly freelanced the design while looking at reference images (this one in particular), rather than scaling an engineering drawing as I usually do (engineering drawings for both vehicles were hard to come by). The end result is approximately the same scale as my other models. Another angle. The interior of this model is identical to the Fairlie. I'd like to have a crew to operate it, but I don't have any lumberjack minifigs! Full Brickshelf gallery here (pending moderation). Let me know what you think!

    Santas Sleigh

    This is a SNOT built model of Santas Sleigh, the only non snot pieces are the seat, presents and runners. I built this to go in conjunction with my Rockmonster Who Stole Christmas Scene (http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=117240) I hope you like it and comments are welcome as always.

    [MOC] The Doors (Band)

    Hello! This is my tribute to the one of the most cool bands of all time, The Doors the most challenging part was the lettering, its not perfect, but i'm satisfied The drums are simple, and i try to make the minifigs real close to the original band, its a simple MOC, but i Like it :) LEGO - The Doors by SergioBatista, on Flickr
