  1. Winter Village 2017

    This is my first Moc after coming out of the Dark Age. I have always loved winter and Christmas and I am very happy to have spent two years building this village; unfortunately the time available is always little and I can put some bricks only a couple of times a month. The photos are a bit old and a new version of this village is already under construction _DSC2659 by Alessio Stebel, su Flickr _DSC2611 by Alessio Stebel, su Flickr Link to the complete gallery: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmbqiRwn
  2. Wanted to add the Lego pickup set 40083 to my winter village. Was not into Lego when was available and the aftermarket $50 plus price is bit high IMO. Recently purchased 40 lbs of bulk Lego for $200. Was able to create this truck from these bricks. Now have to find a use for 39.75 lbs of Lego. Good problem to have. Think for my first moc came out pretty good. Grill is almost exactly like 40083. Believe the truck bed side rails are not Lego (Mega Blocks). Everything else is (Bulk bricks were about 5~10% Mega Blocks. Like the flared fenders. Only had parts to build in white, would have like to have the truck body a contrasting color. Was torn between building a bed for the truck or just making it a flat bed. Planning on getting the winter cottage some day, as it has a flat bed truck thought I would build something different.
  3. HI guys, I want to share with you this interview we did to the builder of this MOC. As it is in Italian, turn on subtitles in English. Let me know if you are interested in other MOC videos exhibited in Italian events.
  4. [MOC] Wolf's Watch

    So... I'm not the world's biggest believer in enormous, Windsor-scale castles. Call me unambitious, but A) I like to design something that might be in the realm (for me) of building one day (given my finances, even small MOCs are ridiculously tough to swing), and B) I like isolated, somewhat forlorn fortresses located in the wilderness, as opposed to city-encircling mega-citadels. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to build the starter keep from the Kingdom's and Castles PC game, and while I was happy with the final result, I didn't like that it was based on someone else's IP - I wanted a "castle of my own," so to speak. So, three days ago, I started putting together Wolf's Watch. Originally, I didn't plan on doing anything nearly this ambitious, but the project kind of expanded as I built - I wanted to add a dungeon, and then once I had raised the keep up, it needed additional terrain to give the elevation context. But I am very happy with the final design - it really encompasses the heart of what I was shooting for: an English/Welsh-style small castle with heavy play features and a (relatively) low part count (okay, 5,000 isn't low, but when you're talking about projects like this, you can quickly see the numbers explode into the tens of thousands :P). First, some overview shots of the exterior: The keep itself features three floors, plus an accessible roof. The top two floors lift out over the first (which has a kitchen inside, but I didn't bother taking a picture of it since Bluerender's interior lighting is so shoddy), and are accessed via a swinging side panel. The second floor is a reception room which will showcase a few suits of armor and a throne (not going to cram the suits into the digital model); the third is the King's (and I say "King's," but I never intended this to be a full time royal residence - I am thinking more along the lines of a Baron or poor Viscount) bedroom, and features a bed, chamber pot, crown, fireplace, tea kettle, and so on. The castle has an extensive subterranean area which has limited access via the keep lifting up. Unfortunately, as mentioned previously, Bluerender's lighting for this kind of thing is downright poor. However, the left-hand side of the underground section is an area of haunted caves, with still drip pools, stalactites, stalagmites, and so on. The right side is a split scene, with two jail cells and a brick-built spiral staircase, plus the Forgotten King's Tomb. I intended for the tomb to be accessed via the caverns and not the stairs directly (some imagination is necessary), to give the basement a kind of adventurous, exploration-oriented design that hearkens back to Taran and Eilonwy mucking around under Spiral Castle in The Book of Three. The only independent non-castle-related structure within the outer wall is a blacksmith. I ripped off the mill wheel-powered auto-hammer design from 6918. The bone is part of some exterior scenicking which, along with a buried skull, is intended to represent a fossilized beast. There are hints of the caverns embedded in the sides elsewhere on the model. And that's pretty much it! As always, any questions, comments or critiques are most welcome!
  5. Winter Village diorama 2017

    Hi all, this year I expanded my collection of winter village sets buying the winter train station and the winter train, so I realized that I had to make a new diorama to integrate them in my diorama. This is the old one: Now, after a lot of work, I'm happy to present you the new one! I used a lot of pieces building three independent modules to make the structure more resistant and easily transportable. Hope you like it!
  6. Thinking of a scenic winter wonderland MOC train under my Christmas tree. Built exclusively with elements from Shop at Home Pick a Brick, except for one piece, the transparent window inserts on the earth green passenger car which can be had at Shop at Home Bricks and Pieces service. So, if you like it, you could buy it and build it. I caveat, that I haven't built these trains... yet, so I highly recommend that if you think you might try to build them, please critique the LDD lxf file and use your good critical judgement, make your own assessment and any changes you like or find necessary. If you do, it would be awesome if you followed up with your results both LDD lxf file and pics of the bricks. you can see more pictures, the LDD files, and PDF part lists generated from the LDD instructions "HTML" instructions generator here at my Brickshelf account Inspired by Swiss Rhaetian Railway Inspired by Glacier And Bernina Express If you were to buy parts-- in full or to augment from your personal existing parts collections-- from Shop at Home to build a train, I wonder if you could notify them at time of purchase that the bricks are going toward this train build? thanks for looking, maybe building, and possibly your own inspiration to design within the Pick a Brick palette.

  7. Steinn Fortress

    Micro castles are always something I enjoy building, and this one was especially fun due to being set in the winter. I incorporated quite a few technic parts into the castle itself and was really pleased with how well they fit in. One of Mitgardia's stronger citadels, Steinn Fortress is built into Mount Mitgard and features many soaring towers. Even during the Algus invasion, Steinn Fortress wasn't breached. More images on brickbuilt. Thanks for looking, comments and criticism always welcome
  8. [MOC] Snowcat

    Snowcat building instructions
  9. Solitary Existence

    This secluded shrine is one of many in a large monastery complex nestled into the Heavenly Mountains of Mitgardia. Also, if you didn't already see my post in the New Member Guide, this model is part of a giveaway. You can see the full details and more pictures of the model here. Comments and criticism welcome
  10. Ice Fishing [MOC]

    Hey guys this is a quick moc I wipped up that turned out quite nicely I'd like to think. I know there's much more I can improve on so I'd like your feedback on my latest moc. Thanks! DSC_2125 by Movie Mocs, on Flickr DSC_2127 by Movie Mocs, on Flickr DSC_2126 by Movie Mocs, on Flickr
  11. This was built for the Colossal Battle Contest V, specifically the Dread Ambushers category. I have always enjoyed building dwarven style creations, and had wanted to do another for a while. The tower was somewhat influenced by dwarven towers in skyrim. This also gave me a great opportunity to use the polar bear in a build. The dwarves of Staor have many small outposts around the mountain that serve as defensive bastions, and gates into their underground kingdom. Some unfriendly neighboring trolls have planned an ambush and scaled down the craggy mountain slopes in an attack on the dwarves. Little do they realize that they too may be on the receiving end of an ambush. More pics. Thanks for looking, comments and criticism welcome

  13. [MOC] Train Engine Shed

    Another creation for diorama on incoming event - in winter edition. No interior has been made. I also try to put on some icicles, but I didn't like them at all. When I'll put it on diorama, some utensils, decorations and accessories will be added. For now it is, what it is. Credits for "Stop buffers" goes to Karwik. I like the idea, but I made my own version of it.
  14. LEGO Seasonal sets the NEED to be made. This list is will be composed of seasonal sets that haven't been made or are bigger remakes of previous sets. There will be 3 sets on this list. 1: Christmas tree truck with Christmas tree lot. This set would be loosely on set 40082 and 40083, but be a much bigger set. The truck's cab would be green and the trailer would be red The truck would be like a logging truck and would be around 200 pieces and the lot would be around 50 pieces, and it would come with 10 trees, 5 molded, and 5 built up, with ornaments on the built up trees. The price would be $30.00 USD 2:A remake of the Winter Village Cottage.set 10299 and 10222. We need a set like this that is on the cheaper end, but has good builds and fun building experiences. I don't have any of these sets, but it would be nice to see these sets in a remake mash-up. The set would have 500-550 pieces. The Mail Truck would be 50 pieces, and it would be red and green. The Snowplow would be 80 pieces, and be green vehicle and orange snowplow. The buildings would be a snowplow shed, 75 pieces, and would use the brick-like LEGO bricks in dark red and tan and have a door that you can put down, a LEGO store that is 115 pieces and will be made of red and white pieces with a "mannequin" LEGO minifigure on each side of the door, a Coffee/ Hot Chocolate stand that is 15 pieces and that is made a brown bricks and a white sign, and, for a final building, a town square that is 200 pieces and would have a tree made of 100 pieces and would be like the tree we got a few years ago and the square would have 2 snow-covered benches. The figures would be a male LEGO worker, a mailman, 3 kids, a female LEGO worker, a snowplow driver, and 5 adults, one of the adults is an older worker. the set would be $50.00 USD. It would also have a light brick and snowy backdrop. 3: The final set is Christmas Square Fun! This set will have 450 pieces and will have mostly minifigures, kind of like the Fun at the Park set, except only bigger. The main builds would include a snowmobile, a Christmas tree, Santa's Workshop where you can meet Santa, and a snowy Christmas night backdrop. The minifigures would be Santa, an Elf, 6 adults, 10 kids, 2 dogs, and a marching band with instruments. The set would retail for $35.00 USD.
  15. Hi, i was looking for the set in the lego online shop in Italy but it can't be found. Is it being retired?
  16. [MOC] Small Ferris Wheel [updated]

    Hi, I would like to show you my wip moc of a ferris wheel for my winter village. I got inspiration from this one, expecially for the gondolas, but i spiced it up a little bit (6 instead of 4, top cover, etc...). Of course i still have to develop everything around it, this is just the wheel for now (and still need to add some more decorations). As I'm new to this forum and I'm back on track after a long dark age I would like to know your impressions and suggestions to get it better before ordering the pieces i miss.For example i have some difficulties to attach more firmly the white plates to the black technic rotor plate. Any ideas? The gondolas are connected via turntables, i guess that there is a little bit too friction on that but it's the easiest way i found. FRONT VIEW REAR VIEW Comments and suggestions are welcome
  17. This project started about one year ago, when I saw this machine in real life. Previously I wasn't impressed at all, but seeing it ignited a spark. I abandoned it because of the lack of snow that particular winter to return to it later. It is inspired by PistenBully groomers, but it is not a scale model. Here is the final outcome :) As you can see, it uses Sariel's custom tracks. I'm happy to publish the (probably) first model using them (apart from his models, of course). It was however not the best use for them. They are really bad in snow. While they are OK in fresh snow, they can't propel the model on the ski slope - I was only able to drive downwards. There was also one thing I didn't consider - since the drive wheels are located so low, snow would quickly get there and melt, which caused the loss of traction. Oh well. Ready-made tracks would perform much better, but it was an interesting experiment. It's also unstopable on carpet - the model was succesfully tested by a 7-year-old :) It was designed to be failproof and it does its job very well. Other functions work without any problems. The middle wheels have simple pendular suspension. On the rear it features two easily interchangeable tillers. The one above is very detailed and its sides can swivel down. I don't know all the technical terms. It works fine, I like that I can control both sides with a single gear. The moving parts stay in place because of worm gears and friction pins. It doesn't have a razor, but it is also an optional equipment on real machines. The second tiller was designed to be light and simple, just in case the lifting mechanism doesn't function properly. I was actually surprised by how much a single small linear actuator can lift. It required a bit of experimenting with angles, but at the end it would easily lift the heavy attachment or press it down, because the whole thing was suspended on two shock absorbers. Everything can be seen in the video. I'm very happy with the front shovel. It's very sturdy, angled enough to actually flip through the snow, just like in real groomers. It is lifted by an L-Motor with two small actuators. It has the power to lift the entire model. The blade can also be rotated with the use of a worm gear. It's similar to Designer Han's Leitwolf, but functions better. I installed two shocks, which effectively reduce the backlash, but still allow for some movement and act as suspension. At first I wanted to use pneumatics, but they would look messy and not be able to keep the angle. The guide wheels on both sides help a lot when driving through carpet. The sides don't move to be more sturdy, so I added some fake cylinders. They took me well over an hour of experimenting :D Cab can be tilted and doors open. The interior is modest, but it doesn't lack anything essential. Under the cab there's a battery box for the lighting - I use LifeLites LEDs. I absolutely love them, because they have 25 pre-programmed sequentions - here we two blinking orange lights on the roof. The building of the cabin was a challenge even of itself, because the width had to be even. In the base two XL-Motors (geared 3:5) need to sit side-by-side , so I had to use bricks and plates to create very strong sides. You can't really do it with a single layer of connectors, and at 13 studs it was way too wide. At the however the use of classic bricks turned out to be a good thing. It was also my first model to use the 8878 rechargeable BB. One interesting small thing is, the on/off switch is controlled by a hidden lever with a rubber connector, which makes it comfortable to control. Overall I'm happy with the model. Performance on snow could have been better, but it is a beast when on carpet. Functions have more than enough power and the looks are also fine. I managed to hide all the electric components in the base. Some previous Technic groomers had more functions, but usually at the cost of a huge battery box behind cab or some motors inside tracks. I managed to keep my model clean and sturdy. A lot more pictures on my bricksafe: http://bricksafe.com/pages/kubic5/snowgroomer Here is the video: Thanks for reading!
  18. Winter Village: Filling Station

    Welcome to the Winter Village Filling Station, where you can fill your gas tank and fill your belly at the same time! This creation features the main building, a pair of vintage-style gas pumps, and a retro gas truck. Here's the main building, with tire rack and vintage road sign. It's been decorated quite nicely for the winter holiday. Inside, you can stock up on supplies and chat with the friendly staff. The pumps are shielded by a canopy. And here's the truck, which I had the most fun designing to give it a mid-century diesel look. More images available on Flickr. Thanks for looking! Comments and suggestions welcome!
  19. Lego New Year Special

    Happy New Year everyone! Here is our New Stop Motion Animation.
  20. Harburg Castle

    This is my 5th entry into the Colossal Castle Contest XIV, for the Ice Castle category. Burg Eltz castle in Germany is one of my favorite castles, and that castle was my main inspiration for this build. My model stands 84 studs tall, and features a full interior via 2 hinging walls sections. Harburg Castle is located in the mountain range near the Nocturnus border in Mitgardia. The lord of the castle, Karsten Storrar, receives an unexpected visit from his brother Sir Glorfindel. Inside the castle the cook prepares some fresh baked goods while a few guards take their mid-day meal. "Karsten! It is good to see you again!" "Likewise, but what brings my famous little brother and Dedan the hunter to Harburg?" Karsten asked jokingly, though his tone soon shifted as he posed another question, "New tidings of the Algus in the North?" "No, the Kylma Katsella and new fortifications seem to be holding back those foes. It's danger from the east that brings me, as we've heard many reports of the Black Spire's influence in Nocturnus growing stronger. Naturally, Harburg's location on the Nocturnus border makes it an important position to have well defended. We've come to warn you and other towns and villages that their defenses should be strengthened in the face of this possible threat," Glorfindel answered. "Yes, I've heard these rumors myself and tried to prepare accordingly. Unfortunately, many of the neighboring lords and jarls feel that these rumours are unfounded." "Which is why we've come to you first," Dedan interjected, "we hoped that your influence in this region of Mitgardia might help to convince the others." "Well I'm happy to do what I can, though of course you understand the difficulty of the situation. The recent Algus threat has already weakened most towns and villages, as they sent supplies and men to fortify the North. But enough of this gloomy talk, come! The twins will be thrilled to have a visit from their uncle, and I'm sure Karin will be pleased to see you as well." And with that, the group headed into the protection and welcoming warmth of the keep. On a white backdrop: There are plenty more pictures on brickbuilt. I'm quite pleased with how this turned out, and am looking forward to developing more stories with Glorfindel's family. C&C always welcome
  21. Good day! Today I present to you my newest MOC - a Snowmobile! This MOC uses my Heavy Duty Track cocept , which looks to perform really well on carpet. There's not much to tell , it is under-powered by 2 m-motors and steering by another m-motor. The drive motors can be changed to l-motors without any problems , it should perform much better with them. There's no snow where I live , so I wasn't able to test it outside Here's the LDD file ( click! ) and Bricksafe gallery Any remarks or opinions are welcome
  22. [ MOC ] The Winter Express

    Hi everyone! A little while since I completed and posted my creations. Winter is here, and Christmas is coming, and I think it is time to do something for my winter village. Here is my first try on making a train MOC, and it is an interesting building journey. I have looked at different beautiful locomotive engines online and created my version with a little seasonal deco. I don't want this to be a funny, cartoon Christmas tree, but a formal and decent express train going between the city and the winter village. The engine is the part that took me most time to create. I had the basic form in my head, but the mechanism and details actually required quite some understanding of the actual old locomotives. Luckily, the green Emerald Train gave me much hint and so I ended up with this: I added some interesting details to the front bumper part, using the claw pieces. I also tried a "tilted bottle" arrangement for the chimney part. The engine probably runs on diesel as there is no coal section. The wagon car follows the engine, and that is how you get your presents at the winter village! Freshly delivered from the city center! The passenger car is a simple one with all you need: doors and windows, and a streamlined profile. It looks like it has warm air supply already for your long journey through the winter: The last car is a mail car. Of course, you need to deliver a lot of parcels and Christmas cards to the villagers from the city. So, have we arrived yet? Yes, this is it! Hope you guys like it! :D Have a merry Christmas! ;)
  23. An early Winter Village

    I built a Winter Village which contains most of the Lego Winter Village sets and a Winter Station, which I will be submitting to Lego Ideas later on (the station is easily converted to a non-winter station). Here are some pictures: And ofcourse I made a winter themed video too! The video is also the reason why I already built a Winter Village this soon: I want the video to gain some watchtime on Youtube so more people will find it around Christmas :)
  24. Last year I found pictures of a really cool Winter Village display that had a ski mountain. In a cut away of the mountain you could see inside and there was a cave with the Yeti mini-figure and the Ice Fisherman mini-figure. It was really cool, the cave had a small pond that the Fisherman was fishing in. Does anyone remember this display and have a link or pictures of it? Or has anyone else built a Yeti's cave they'd like to share?
  25. I have posted this in the Town Snow contest thread, but I feel like it deserves it's own thread as well. This is first of many wildlife sculptures I am working on, for an ultimate purpose, a coffee table book. I have also created a Flickr group named Bricks of Wildlife for curating Lego creations of wildlife from the Lego community. Feel free to join, browse and add your wildlife Lego creations. I hope for it to be a great resource and an inspiration. https://www.flickr.com/groups/bricksofwildlife/ Winter Fox Hunt by Miro Dudas, on Flickr Miro
