Who says all big spaceships need to be covered with greebles to look great? This gorgeous space Destroyer by Dutch builder Red Spacecat employs clean lines and smooth surfaces, and it looks fantastic. Don’t let that fool you, though; it’s still packed with plenty of details, like the hidden torpedo ports.
LEGO Military models on The Brothers Brick | Page 3
Tanks and fighter planes, dioramas of World War II battles, dreadnoughts and battleships — LEGO builders have an obvious fascination with the arms and armor of the military-industrial complex. Find all these LEGO weapons of mass destruction right here on The Brothers Brick.
I’ve noticed a lot of futuristic military scenes made recently and I wanted to give it a go as well. I spent one day to make the olive green tank and two more days for the backdrop. I tried to emulate the urban decay style with what time I had, but my lack of experience Continue reading →
Captain Eugene brings to life a WWII era light armoured reconnaissance vehicle used by the Germans in Western Europe, the Eastern Front and North Africa. This particular variant is an SdKfz. 222 used by the Deutsche Afrika-Korps, built in 1:35 scale. Enjoy tonight’s serving of military history from a talented builder.
Speaking of photographing your LEGO models well, brothers Joe and Will Merzlak do some of the coolest “on-location” LEGO photography around. Their latest, a hulking beast of a vehicle called the Goat, looks prepared to drive through positively any sort of terrain, and actually seems to be doing so.
Tyler (Legohaulic) shows off Lego’s new olive green color in this alternate WWII mech.
At the end of December, Kyle Wigboldy (thirdwigg) posted a LEGO Spitfire fighter plane from World War II that has the most functions I’ve ever seen in a LEGO plane. Kyle spent about six months on his Spitfire, and the finished model has a wingspan of 112 studs and is 96 studs long. Not only Continue reading →
…call in this guy. This mech by flickr user Bockaderunner sports some terrific heavy weapons, and looks great to boot. The posing of the mech is awesome, and gives it a much more dynamic presence than a simple at-attention pose.
I’m a big fan of fictional, yet plausible models. And this ‘Shadow Stealth’ helicopter by Simon T. James is a fine example. Usually compound curves look a little odd to me, but here they perfectly convey the choppy lines of real world stealth vehicles. I dig this.
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 →
I’m always a bit of a sucker for a well-built tank, though I admit to not keeping up specifically with who’s currently got the most accurate LEGO tank and whatnot. I do know a nice-looking tank when I see one, though, and flickr user DutchLego has a hardy-looking M4A3. Before everyone screams it, yes, it Continue reading →
I would not want to be eaten if I were a bird…but I would be slightly more ok with it if I was eaten by legorobo:waka’s TS-21 Birdeater. That would be one heck of a way to go! Check out all the funtastic play features in the full photo set
I think it is a safe bet for me to say that Erik (Lemon_Boy) is one of my favourite builders on Flickr. I have an odd fascination with his work. Perhaps it is his complete lack of fear towards studs, or possibly his courageous use of colour combinations, most definitely his affinity for realistic scale…and Continue reading →
Ralph Savelsberg (Mad physicist) takes his military aircraft in a massive direction with this gargantuan B-52 bomber. Ralph writes, “At 170 studs in length and with a span of approximately 196 studs this is the largest single model I have ever built.” I’m headed back over to his photoset to finish looking at the pictures…
Well, here’s a sweet mech. The Wolverine by flickr user TheBricks has a crazy muscled look, and sports not only a giant gun (naturally), but also some crazy claws of doom.
Here’s a trio of excellent microscale creations by flickr user Commander Hawk. He’s nailed the art of using just enough detail to evoke the shape. Be sure to check out his photostream, too, as it’s full of other great microscale stuff.
