Norton74 posted a topic in LEGO Historic ThemesNIBARIKI, Hayao Miyazaki's Citroën 2CV My latest creation is a tribute to Hayao Miyazaki, Japan's greatest animation director and co-founder of Studio Ghibli, best-loved of all the Japanese animation studios. I had already written in the past how his films and his stories often inspired my creations, especially in terms of atmosphere and environments. Back in 1998, Hayao Miyazaki designed and built a house for his production company, called Nibariki. This house is located nearby Studio Ghibli's main building. Nibariki means 2 horsepower in Japanese and the name is a clear tribute to the beloved Citroën 2CV that the artist has been driving for more than forty years. Above you can see both Mr. Miyazaki's new office and his Citroën 2CV. And of course our beloved masterful storyteller too. Miyazaki bought his first 2CV as a university student in the early 1960s. It was a right-hand-drive model, imported from the U.K. and painted bright yellow. A 2CV first appeared in Miyazaki's first feature-length film, 1979's The Castle of Cagliostro. An action-adventure tale involving a mischievous gentlemen thief, the well known Lupin III, and featuring multiple car chases, including the heroine, Clarisse, escaping in her 2CV. Miyazaki's current Citroën is a 1987 2CV 6 painted in light gray and is exactly like the one you see in my latest creation.
Porco Rosso is one of my favorite Studio Ghibli movies. It takes place in Italy between the World Wars, and the hero is a veteran who has closed himself off from the world, only to have it come knocking on his door. It's an adventure, a comedy, and a seaplane fanatic's dream al in one. I built this model over the course of a few years. Although the details are not perfect, such as the nose being too angular and pontoons too blocky, I am pretty satisfied with it. I went for true minifig scale. Tell me what you think in the comments, and be nice!
Hi, For your consideration I present to you my very first MOC. Oh-Totoro from the anime My Neighbour Totoro by Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli. This is a work in progress as mentioned where I will refine the construction and try different poses and I also plan to add Chuu-Totoro and Chibi-Totoro to the company. I am currently building the first physical version of the large Totoro (Oh-Totoro) to check and refine its construction. Also I would like to place the characters in a small environment that will add to the experience. Feedback is greatly appreciated. Stay tuned for coming updates. This little project turned out so promising that I have also published it as a LEGO Cuusoo project as, to my surprise, I couldn't find any Totoro project on Cuusoo. So if you want you may vote for it over att the following link: LEGO Cuusoo My Neighbour Totoro Thanks to sherrycayheyhey for the LEGO ball tutorial (http://www.instructa...ke-a-Lego-Ball/). Earlier sketches, as you can see the smaller Totoros will require a lot more work to get right:
