Nathan Proudlove says his latest steampunk creation was inspired by Dark Cloud 2, a Christina Aguilera song, and the steam spider by Crabfu Steamworks.

I just discovered Maciej Drwiega‘s flickr gallery today and was really impressed by both the models and photography.

The windscreen is also particularly nice.

Kris Kelvin rebuilds 6276 Eldorado Fortress for the modern age

6276 Eldorado Fortress is one of those classic LEGO Pirates sets that we’ve grown to love over the years. Released 20 years ago, the set arrived in the phase when my parents thought I should give Technic a try instead of all those sets marked “Ages 7-12”.

Kris Kelvin applies modern techniques and uses current LEGO elements to refresh this classic set.
