Tim Goddard’s microscale viaduct shows how something beautiful can be compacted into a tiny scene. The techniques used on the train engine, waterfall, and even the stone columns all add up to make this an enjoyable vignette.

Some say “Go big or go home!” but it takes real talent to compress something down to just a few studs and still keep it recognizable. Of course, many of the micro models we feature here aren’t so small after all, whether it’s a vast cityscape or starship.
Devid VII brings to life one of Japans highest-rated anime series of all time with his outstanding micro-scale rendition of Mazinger Z (Tranzor Z in America). Mazin Go! Mazin Go! Mazingaa Z!
Eurobricks Micro Sci-Fi Contest is barely off the ground and is already yielding some great results. Submitted for your approval is a sprawling mountain science lab (well, as sprawling as a 16×16 base allows) called “Research Base Kappa” by England’s own .Jake.
Eurobricks is holding a Micro Sci-Fi Contest this month (the trophies themselves are noteworthy examples of the genre), and at mid-month we’re already starting to see some really nice entries. Ryan H. (eldeeem) enters the fray with this gorgeous biodome on an ice planet, complete with a resupply ship hovering above. Notice the Modulex bits Continue reading →
I’ve always thought that the majestic locations of Middle-earth would make for a great set of microscale dioramas. Last week, we featured George G’s Helm’s Deep, and today I’m pleased to highlight this beautiful Minas Tirith by diegoboy. I love the angling on the great stone outcropping in the center of the city, and parts Continue reading →
This miniature Helm’s Deep from Tolkien’s The Two Towers is impressive in its level of detail. George G has captured the towering might of this mountain stronghold, and it looks ready to be defended until dawn. All it needs now is a retinue of Rohirrim to guard its walls, and a few ten-thousands of miniature Continue reading →
Tonight’s skyline brought to you by Paul Wellington, and the fine citizens of Brickville.
It’s always hard to take (and for me to choose) shots of large LEGO buildings, especially shots that show them off in all their glory. With Jonathan Lopes’ (BKNY Bricks) latest model, I chose the angle that I though best demonstrated the fun parts (see below) and you’ll just have to follow the trail to Continue reading →
Flickr user Legorobo has built a gorgeous microscale rendition of the mighty fortress at the heart of the White Comet Empire in the classic anime Space Battleship Yamato. Legorobo has taken it an extra step, though, and added both lights and motors to complete the fantastic effect.
I once tried to build a microscale LEGO version of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but never got very far. Bart Willen has certainly been more successful, with a LEGO rendition full of spires and columns atop a cliff. Via MicroBricks.
In the distant future, when humanity has spread to hundreds of habitable planets in the galaxy, when good little boys and girls live thousands of light years away from the North Pole on Earth, how does Santa Claus deliver their toys on Christmas? Why, aboard SCSS Rudolph, the jolly old elf’s Candy Cane-class space corvette, Continue reading →
With a small assortment of parts Fedde (Karf Oohlu) has created a microscale castle that is both adorable and also quite detailed for it’s size. You gotta love efficient parts usage like this!
I had posted Pierre’s wonderful ship last week, but this is simply too beautiful of a photo to not do this update. The only thing edited in this shot is the background and engine glow. The glow of the ships lights is achieved by using electroluminescent wire on the interior of the vessel.
I think the first comment on Pierre E Fieschi’s latest photo sums up how most of us feel about him. I can honestly say that I am absolutely blown away by every build that he posts. His ability to create incredibly complex, yet truly fun, spacey creations is second to none. There are a lot Continue reading →
I was looking through flickr user’s Sydag’s new aircraft models earlier, and was shocked to discover that we’ve never featured any of his stunning airplanes here before. Sydag has been building some of the best small aircraft to be found, including this latest pair of Hawker Sea Furies, decked out for the Reno Air Races. Continue reading →
