And now for something completely different. I seldom build anything Pirate and I’ve never tried anything quite like this before. The goofy look on his face appeals to me, so I may have to leave it together for awhile…at least until Talk Like a Pirate Day.
By the way, this was built for Forbidden Cove’s June Seedpart Contest.
I do believe the Iron Builder competition is heating up just a tad. Guy Himber posted a still photo of his brilliant Orrery, to compliment its moving counterpart. It’s just as lovely stopped as it is moving.
An orrery, to quote Guy, is “…a mechanical device that illustrates the relative positions and motions of the planets and moons in the solar system in a heliocentric model. They are typically driven by a clockwork mechanism.”
This completely fits that description.
Lolino packs some serious detail into his latest creation, Lovneur Castle. Forest and all sits on an 8×8 base, and just holds so much charm.
Big difference from his most recent creation!
Chris McVeigh (powerpig) has posted instructions to build a Pokéball. Maybe it’ll catch a Lego Pokémon.
Brian Williams (BMW_Indy) yet again shows his expert vignette craftsmanship in his build of the Battle of San Juan Hill. Everything from the custom-built horse, the explosion, the grass field, the sloped hill, and the display base separate this creation from the ordinary.
Sorry if I suckered any baseball fans among our readers, this post is about a big green tank by Jason Heltebridle (Moctagon Jones). The smooth curves of this creation, coupled with the unusual gun certainly push this well into the sci-fi realm. Some of the details on the turret are also quite nice, in particular, the work between the wheels.
What’s more, it has taken me long enough to write this post, that it seems Jason has posted ANOTHER interesting tank.
Carl Greatrix (bricktrix) has a habit of building the impossible. But this A4 Pacific has to be his most extreme example. Some of the drivers, stickers and pipes are custom but the rest of the build is 100% LEGO
Sam W. (-infomaniac-) presents the Temple of the Tan Tiger complete with an interior, a backstory and his thoughts. It’s also a surprise to see a sci-fi builder build castle. Even among castle builders, it is rare to find a Japanese castle of this size and quality.
Wami Delthorn successfully channels both Pete Reid and Alex Eylar for a wonderful photo of a wonderful LEGO model.
For reasons lost in the mists of time, my brother and I split LEGO themes growing up, resulting in no Futuron for him and no Blacktron for me. But I still appreciate a great LEGO model in the Blacktron theme, like this formidable tank by Evan B. (Lego Junkie).
Though a bit on the slow side, the tank moves under its own power and the turret spins.
