The models featured on The Brothers Brick are here because we think they’re cool, but most of them share one thing in common, they make use of advanced building techniques. These techniques range from Studs Not On Top (SNOT) building to strange parts use and connections, or as the star above demonstrates, making use of part geometry to achieve something interesting.
While nothing can beat practise and experiment for learning about these techniques there are a few useful guides and the likes out there to help you along the way. I’ve collated a list of some links for those who want to improve their building technique or who are just curious.
- Didier Enjary’s Unofficial LEGO Advanced Building Techniques Guide (click Télécharger document)
- Flickr LEGO techniques pool
- LEGO Techniques library
- ILTCO library (contains links to a number of train specific and more general technical guides)
Perusing any of these should prove illuminating and help hone your building techniques.
Of course there are plenty more out there so if you know of any then please post a link and description in the comments section.
