Katie Walker is the undisputed ruler of the cheese slope. Give her a random pile of them and the odd handful of 1×1 plates, tiles or bricks and awesome things start to happen. You have to check out her latest. I keep thinking that she is going to run out of new techniques or ideas but it ain’t happening.
Alexandre Bigeard’s (V1lain) Starfox Arwing makes me just want to say that.
I never thought I’d see a space ship with a slim waist, but the Feros by Stijn (Red Spacecat) is just that. This thing is all smooth curves, synched in by a belt (in this case the bridge) in the center. He’s scattered a few interesting details throughout, which stand out starkly against the otherwise smooth figure.
As always, Stijn goes the extra mile in photoshop to bring us a nice presentation, as well.
We don’t normally feature works-in-progress here on TBB, but Mark Kelso has been working on his next massive SHIP, and this photo captures the inevitable frustration of designing and building a large-scale LEGO model that we have to share. It’s also nice to see the LEGO workspace of one of our favorite builders.
Mark says, “After the first wing section slipped off the SHIP and crashed to the ground for a second time, I realized another solution was going to be necessarry.”
Don’t worry — Mark didn’t actually smash his next masterpiece, so we’ll look forward to featuring the finished model here when it’s done.
This is Monster’s Machine and don’t you forget it. I can’t say that I would fancy wearing clothes made from mummy wrappings, but to each their own. Matt has really been turning out the creations lately and I’m loving it.
I love a good micro freighter. I can just imagine all the interesting things being carted around the galaxy. Lazer Blade uses pattern repetition and a wide variety of colors for the cargo containers to make a potentially boring freighter really rather awesome. My favorite detail is the ship number in red and gray near the back.
Hat tip to Evan B. for the suggestion (and photo editing, apparently).
It took me a few seconds to recognize a Lego part on Adrian Florea‘s newest creation. Either I’m a noob or Adrian used some really obscure pieces to good effect. The only non-purist element is a painted canopy.
I admit to being a sucker for Disney; I was 23 when I made my first trip. There’s a certain joy in seeing Mainstreet USA for the first time.
So with that in mind, this creation by Fat Tony brings me to that point, of being at Disney for the first time, and the sheer joy of riding the rides and seeing that magic.
More shots on this glorious creation, check out the flickr gallery!
Nathan Proudlove hits the road with this lovely, yellow Dodge A100. This smooth build and excellent use of parts are just what we except from Mr. Proudlove!
