  1. Just a small build of scenery for a Panzer IV L/70 Advance through the Ardennes, December 1944 by Nicholas Goodman, on Flickr
  2. Operation Stalemate II, September 1944 Marines of the 1st Division attempt to reach the sea wall under heavy enemy fire following an amphibious landing on the Island of Peleliu.

  3. Another go with a WW2 action scene. Here is a small vignette showcasing a German Nebelwerfer in action, probably on the East front. Nebelwerfer 41 in action by Veynom, on Flickr Nebelwerfer 41 in action by Veynom, on Flickr The model is mostly based on the BrickMania design, except for the wheels and ammunitions. The Nebelwerfer - literally "smoke launcher" - was originally designed as a rocket launcher with a name purposely chosen to deceive its true nature. Rocket researches in Germany started during the 1920s and were fruitful in the late 30s. The "Nebelwerfer" name was used to go around the restrictions from the Versailles treaty preventing Germany to develop and produce weapons. In reality, the Nebelwerfer could launch smoke, of course, but also combat gas and highly explosive rockets. It was used during the entire WW2 conflict on all fronts. As I do not like to simply "copy" an existing model, I also built a light blueish grey version which has a different undercarriage and mounting system. The undercarriage is based on a modified plate 2x2 with pins while the mounting system relies on a technic connector. It allows for larger and more realistic wheels and a lighter mounting system. Nebelwerfer 41 by Veynom, on Flickr Here, the rear view of both Nebelwerfers shows you the loaded one firing its first rocket (left) and one without any ammunition in it (right). Nebelwerfer 41 by Veynom, on Flickr Hope you like these. I have been contemplating to build a white-ish version representing the winter paint job used on the East front as well but I lack the necessary bricks. And I have no winter soldier as well. ;)
  4. Ju-87 Stuka in Tmimi (Libya) - 1941 by Veynom, on Flickr This small scenery depicts a typical German Ju-87 R/2 (tropical version) in the Tmimi airfield in Libya during summer 1941. Historical photos show that at least 2 planes from the II/St.G 2 unit received this very particular paint scheme and only during summer (and maybe fall) of 1941. Reasons for this paint scheme remain unknown but it appears on multiple photos with 2 different plane markings for sure. I've built this for the "1941" contest of BrickMania. Ju-87 Stuka in Tmimi (Libya) - 1941 by Veynom, on Flickr The model - Junkers Ju-87 Stuka The Stuka is based on BrickMania JU-87 G-2 with quite a lot of modifications: The paint scheme is changed from DBG to tan and dark green. (and believe me, this can be tricky and costly) The nose and propeller are significantly different. The wings angle is slightly higher on my model to match with the real one. The landing gear has been changed (after 20 different trials, at least) Armament has been converted to a 500Kg bomb + fuel tanks under the wings (the bomb drop system is fully functional) Wing tips are different Tail and rear fuselage underwent significant changes to accommodate the paint scheme (and available bricks) The canopy is quite different Markings comes from various 1/32 scale models The bomb loader is custom and looks quite well like the original tool developed specifically for the Stuka The engine crane is classic. A few accessories are spread around, depicting typical working conditions in North-Africa. The Stuka was quite a challenging build, particularly given the limited available parts in tan and dark green. In the end, I like the results even if I think a couple of areas could still be improved. All bricks are 100% Lego except a couple accessories (some crates and 2 machine guns). The Stuka antenna is just a non-Lego black wire. Zoom on the bomb loading tool, developed specifically for the Stuka. Ju-87 Stuka in Tmimi (Libya) - 1941 by Veynom, on Flickr Ju-87 Stuka in Tmimi (Libya) - 1941 by Veynom, on Flickr Ju-87 Stuka in Tmimi (Libya) - 1941 by Veynom, on Flickr Ju-87 Stuka in Tmimi (Libya) - 1941 by Veynom, on Flickr Note: I have also designed a DBG + yellow tail variant of the Stuka that served on the Bulgarian front in 1941 but the model is not yet built. Note 2; No photoshopping was involved. The pictures with the desert background were taken in front of a PC screen with a desert wallpaper being displayed. The desert is actually from Libya of course.

  6. Hi all, It's a Soviet light bomber used in WW2. You will see the building technique similar to that applied in my last model, Bf109E. Enjoy! Features: - 2 x 23mm cannons on wings - 2 x 7.62mm MG on wings - 1 x 12.7mm Berezin defensive MG (can be aimed freely) - 6 x 100kg bombs (4 carried inside the wings, 2 mounted below) - 8 x 82mm anti-tank rockets (laser shooter bricks) - Cockpit accepts 2 minifigs - Throttle lever tilts back and forth - Landing gear retracts completely into the wings (VERY sturdy as well!) - Navigation lamps. (red, green, white) It's an homage to the tradition of Lego's airport sets that always had navigation lamps on the commercial airliners. - Engine may be separated for repair - Intake and exhaust slits for the radiator and oil cooler - National insignia is made out of bricks; no stickers used. Designed to be visible from all sides. - All white winter camouflage - Retractable skis for landing/takeoff on deep snow (optional) I have posted a video on YouTube so that you can see the moving parts:
  7. HMSS Kristján [BD-45]"Aðmíráll-class" Coastal Defense Monitor Royal Svallbjardian Navy Commissioned February 1939, launched June 1940.Armament as Launched:Two dual high-angle fifteen-inch main guns with an effective range of 30,000 meters.Four 3.5-inch secondary-defense guns.Six 20mm anti-air mounts.Three dual 40mm anti-air mounts.Three five-inch dual HA/DP anti-ship/anti-air guns. One Aviastar AR-350 scout seaplane.General Information:Top Speed 22.3 Knots. Compliment of 450. An operational range of over 6,000 kilometers. The HMSS Kristján was an Aðmíráll-class Monitor built-in 1940 to protect and patrol the expansive water borders of Svallbjard. Designed to defend against both air and ship targets, the Kristján was well-armed with two dual 15-inch high-angle turrets and three dual five-inch dual-purpose guns. In addition to this primary armament, the warship also carried various 20mm single AA guns and four three-inch ship defense guns. With a seaplane launch, Kristján was very effective as a reconnaissance vessel and supported Arctic exploration operations and winter joint-training operations. She also held a fairly speedy top speed of 22.3 knots, allowing her to hastily change location and keep up with supporting ships easily. Throughout her career, which spanned 23 years, Kristján outperformed most of her foreign counterparts. She never sunk a hostile warship, yet did participate in many joint-exercises. She was widely regarded as one of the most modern Coastal Defense Ships when she was launched and was well-loved by her crew. Serving in the navy well into the 1960s, Kristján was the final Coastal Defense Monitor to ever serve in a modern navy and her retirement was bittersweet for those who had spent time on or around her. Alas, the days of slow floating bunkers were over, and Svallbjard was looking to the future of anti-ship missiles and guided-missile destroyers. After serving for 23 years, Kristján was transferred to Tórshavn, where she became the second museum ship in the fleet since the founding of the navy. She stands there today, her imposing superstructure and mast inviting young guests to explore her many decks and corridors. Since the first crew was assigned to Kristján, the departing complement would sign the bridge, welcoming the new blood to the family. The signatures, although faded, still sit in the bridge, protected by a layer of plexiglass. HUGE HUGE HUGE THANKS to Admiral_Plackbar for sacrificing his CPU to allow me to do this render. The muzzle-flashes and water base were made by him, the ship and the editing were done by me. First time doing this, I am absolutely going to do it again. All built in

    [MOC] Focke-Wulf FW190A

    Features: 2 x 8mm MG 4 x 20mm Cannon Canopy slides back to open Throttle lever Cockpit accepts a minifig pilot Naviagation lamps (red, green, white) Retractable landing gear National insignia built in bricks; no stickers used Camouflage painting applied on all sides using bricks Engine can be separated for inspection
  9. Hi all, This is a German jet fighter in WW2. Features: - 4 x 30mm cannon barrels visible on the nose - National insignia made in bricks; no stickers used - Canopy opens backwards - Accepts a minifig pilot - Retractable landing gear - Navigation lamps (red, green, white) - Fuselage can be broken into 2 parts - A transparent support is required when the gears are extended because the tail is heavier than the nose. In the real fighter the nose would be way heavier because of the cannons and the engines, but my model is all ABS plastic so the weight difference cannot be put into practice.
  10. Hi all, The model is Messerschmitt Bf109, the most numerous German fighter in WW2, if not the most famous. I designed it from scratch and did not take features from other creators' work. I spent about 7 years designing and financing this project, and I finally finished it last year. Thanks to the work-from-home policy I don't have to drive as much, and I have more free time to share my creations with the world. You will see that some parts are in the new bluish grey while some parts are in the old grey. There are different patterns of 1x2 jumpers. A few parts even show cracks. This is the testament to the time spent to build this up, so I decided not to replace them with new parts in perfect condition. The 1x2x3 train door pieces and the 1x1 round plate with tow ball don't come in the new light bluish gray anyway. The building technique I used to make the aerodynamic fuselage is similar to the 3D wooden puzzle made out of interlocking thin boards. You can see the vertical and horizontal layers coming together to form a pixelated curvature. The width of the fuselage starts in 4 studs and reduces to 3 studs, then 2 studs, squeezing all the way to 1 stud. The internal connection is achieved with technic pieces, locking hinges and clips. I use it a LOT in my models because it allows you to add complicated painting schemes to the surface while maintaining the correct form and structural integrity. Notice that I still try to use as much slope/wedge/curved pieces as possible. Features: - 2 x 20mm cannons mounted on wings - 2 x 8mm MG on top of the engine (represented by a pair of black 1x4 hinge pieces) - 20mm cannon mounted coaxial with the propeller axle - Ammunition stowage (accepts any 1x2 tile as ammo belt) - Skeleton canopy opens/closes like the real thing - Cockpit has enough space to accept a pilot wearing an aviator helmet and a life jacket (new small type) - Throttle lever tilts back and forth - Instrument panel represented by 2 hollow studs in black - Service doors on wings - Landing gear retracts completely into the wings (VERY sturdy as well!) - Tail gear may be steered - Navigation lamps. (red, green, white) It's an homage to the tradition of Lego's airport sets that always had navigation lamps on the commercial airliners. - Engine cowl opens for inspection; exhaust pipes and ignition system visible - Behind the engine you can see the turbocharger intake and a hole for the hand crank - Fuel tank cap can be opened - Both wings may be detached for towing on road - Fuselage separates into 4 major components (to swap/combine painting schemes easily) - National insignia is made out of bricks; no stickers used. Designed to be visible from all sides. - A jettisonable fuel tank may be attached to the bottom I have posted a video on YouTube so that you can see the moving parts: Pictures: (The wings may look very fragile because they are hanging on the 1x2 locking hinge pieces, but there's another pair of clips inside the fuselage that connect to the top side of the wings. The wings are actually so strong that you can lift the whole thing by the tip of a wing. Details explained in the video.)

    Help with a Lego build

    I’m in the plane stage of a lego project I have the blueprint to make a RC scale model of German Horton 229 from WWII. I thought it be cool to make it out Lego bricks (after seeing someone a very large replica of Air Force One ). The only problem I’m having is how the engine are designed into the plane. I want to be authentic on my design. I’m hoping not to ruffle any feather by asking for help with project. I just think it’s a pretty cool plane. I attached some pics of the real Horton 229 as it sit in the Smithsonian to be restored for the museum.. again I hope it ok to post these considering it still has all the original marking on the plane. I got those off the google to show the design of the engines. again I apologize if I offended anyone

    Your finest hour

    This year, is the 75th anniversary of D-day. This is a tribute moc of mine for those who fought for our freedom. I hope you enjoy it.
  13. OK, I'll play too. I am excited about any reason to build an aircraft, but these last couple of days have been rough. I have drafted four ideas (F-86, TA-183, Air Racer, and DH Mosquito), and I didn't like were any of them were going. Getting the nose right is so tricky. Or I am too picky. So, here is the fifth idea, and we will see what can happen with this. It's not very ambitious, but I'll be able to get it done in time. And it fits with what I like to do, mid sized, no PF, and packed full of features. Dual Rotors Front and Rear Collective control Retractable landing gear Opening side door Rear ramp Which It's not much to start, but I have drafted some of the mechanics off to the side. I'll update again tomorrow. I am stuck on colors right now. Yellow and red is overdone, and I do not want too much white, so I welcome votes.

  14. - Train station 1944 - Finally I can show my new diorama 100% complete. I hope you enjoy my scene. Was so funny to build it. Please, check out my flickr page for more pics. about train wagons, tanks and other WWII veichles. Credits: -My BR23 was inspired by Ben Benekes model. -Panzer III it's a copy of Brickmania's set. P.S. I know, BR23 it's wrong to put into 1944 diorama (it's a 50's train) like the D.236 locomotive (this scheme of colours are post-war) but I love too much these 2 locomotive, especially with this scheme of colours. P.S. 2 Non-LEGO pieces (weapons, helmets etc.) by BRICKARMS, BRICKFORGE, BRICKMANIA P.S.3 Sorry for my bad english, I hope you can understand me
  15. When I was a kid in a primary school I had lot of fun with model-making of tanks, aircraft and armored vehicles from World War II. I also created some dioramas out of gypsum, styrofoam, wood etc. for models I made. Probably that's why I wanted to...

  16. Hello! I'm thinking of building a Balao-class sumbarine to honor a submarine that I spent a night on a few days ago. I'm not sure, however, what pieces I should use or how to design the engines/torpedo rooms; do you have any advice? Thanks!
  17. Hello everyone. This is my last diorama and the bigger one I've ever made, work started last summer. I've spent about 5 months to build it (included all veichles, buildings etc.), in free time. there are about 25.000 pieces, I don't know exact number and I don't care. Diorama are based on 12 bases 48x48, 5 bases 32x32 and 1 base 16x32, approx 210x120 cm. I hope you enjoy it, please leave a comment and follow me on flickr, there are more pictures. Thank you very much to all and sorry for my bad english. Andrea, Kriminal, Italy.

    WWII Steampunk Figbarf

    From Left to Right: English Guerrilla Soldier, Nazi Solder, German Rebel, American Soldier, and a Russian Commando. Let me know what you think!
  19. Good evening. This is my first post here in Special LEGO Themes; so far I appeared only in Star Wars department, so... hello everyone! To be honest, I wanted - finally, after so many unsuccesful attempts! - to build an early 76 mm turret (model 1940) for my T-34 tanks family but I failed again and then found some consolation building this - a tank destroyer / self-propelled gun SU-85, also based on the famous T-34 chassis. It happened very quickly (by my standards, anyway ;) ) - in just 5 or 6 evenings and virtually zero Bricklink orders. I'm pleased with the gun mantlet and general proportions of the model. Not so pleased with gap between glacis and side walls. And that's it, I guess. Please take a look at the photos. Comments welcome! P.S. I did not bother building ground plates just for this model - what you see in the last picture are modular plates I created for my ongoing Endor Project. False perspective rules ;) .

  20. Greetings, Today, I'd like to share my Afrika Korps vehicles that I've built over the last few months. I usually build sci-fi or modern military, so it was a nice change to build historical models. I had fun researching each vehicle, and it allowed me to use a lot of my tan parts, possibly my favorite Lego color. The first vehicle I built was a Panzer II Ausf C. It was used for mainly for reconnaissance roles. Panzer II Ausf C - DAK by Tyler, on Flickr I next built a Stug 3 Ausf F/8, which featured a long barreled gun, and excelled as a tank destroyer. Stug III Ausf F/8 - DAK by Tyler, on Flickr For some extra fire power, I built a 10.5 cm leFH 18, which was the standard German light howitzer used during WWII. The legs can be folded inwards to allow a bracket to be attached for towing. 10.5 leFH 18 - DAK by Tyler, on Flickr Finally, an Opel-Blitz; which was used throughout the war. Using left-over fabric from another one of my Lego projects I was able to make the cloth covering for the cargo hold. Opel Blitz by Tyler, on Flickr There are more photos of each model on my Flickr Photostream. Thanks for looking. I hope you enjoyed!
  21. I made a small display of landing in Normandy. I use both of my MOCs; LCVP Higgins Boat and Willys MB. As you see, I also added some soldiers and obstacles on the beach. A few details on the water is missing, but still, here it is. Here is a picture from exhibition. As you see, water is now made with transparent plates. Presentation of other creations you see behind will follow....
  22. Hi all, Here is my contribution to a collaboration we did for our most recent train show. It's supposed to be an occupied French chateau which is under a raid from the Americans. The mountain was a massive pain to build, especially with the train tunnel running underneath. I also have an access point at the back to handle derails. My hat is off to any of you who've built realistic, good looking mountains - it's tough! Enjoy: German occupied French chateau as my part of a WWII collaboration layout at our most recent train show. by Trent, on Flickr More pics in the Sask Lego User's Group Flickr stream (

    [Moc] The WWII Museum

    Hello everyone :) I recently completed this MOC, which is, as the title says, a WWII museum. On the left side you can see a variety of helmets and weapons (Purchased from Brickmania). In the corner there is a mini diorama that represents the battle of the bulge with two German soldiers outfitted with Winter camouflage. Two British and American soldiers (manikins) can be seen on display at the right side of the MOC. As a center display, I decided to put a willy's jeep. Anything you like or don't like? Please let me know, I am all for constructive criticism :) Thank you, Luckypat

    WWII MOC Sd.Kfz. 222

    The Leichter Panzerspähwagen (German: roughly "light armoured reconnaissance vehicle") was a series of light four-wheel drive armoured cars produced by Nazi Germany from 1935 to 1944. I don't know about you folks, but in Slovenia we watched in year 1982 TV comedy series called " 'Allo 'Allo! ". On this TV show we can see Sd.Kfz. 222 and "Leftenant Gruber" called him "My little tank". This inspired me to build a creation below.
