When it comes to using odd parts like the faces from the Cars sets, Gilcelio Chagas is certainly a heavy-lifter. This awesome strongman may look a little wobbly in the knees, but he knows how to heft the weight when it counts.
LEGO Town models on The Brothers Brick | Page 3
Towns in the world of LEGO have everything cities in the real world do — police stations, fire engines, trains, hairdressers and veterinarians. Check out all the beautiful buildings and vehicles we’ve featured here on The Brothers Brick.
Arjan Oude Kotte’s (Konajra) Fireplay 33 tugboat is a stunning creation that combines large-scale sculpting with advanced detailing techniques. The model contains more than 20,000 pieces and took more than 250 hours to design and build. All that work should warrant a visit to the gallery on Flickr for more pictures!
I had to blog this little sports car by “de-marco” to make sure enough people see his cleverness. Especially on the bonnet and indented doors. Magnificent. And it’s the correct 5-wide ;)
Continuing our coverage of great LEGO models debuted at BrickCon 2012, Paul Hetherington just posted his FUN HAUS! building, which won “Best in Town.” (Paul has a serious winning streak going — he also won Town trophies in 2010 and 2011, and won our “Best Apocafied Building” prize during Zombie Apocafest 2009 for his Turns Continue reading →
According to flickr user Tikitikitembo, there’s a whole city in there. This awesome microscale municipality fits neatly into the bowels of a brick-built 2×4. The blue lining on the box is a touch that works magnificently, and there are lots of neat pieces in the structures, ranging from the super old-school to the brand new.
It must be the season for Unofficial LEGO books, as hot on the heels of The Big Unofficial LEGO Adventure Book comes The Big Unofficial Lego Builder’s Book: Build Your Own City (auf Deutsch) by the talented Joe Klang (-derjoe-) and Oliver Albrecht (*Olly*). The book includes some beautiful cars and micro-city designs, along with Continue reading →
Very quick blog post to share this yellow hot rod by Calin (_Tiler). Sweet ride.
The industrious RAILBRICKS team recently brought us yet another issue of their excellent magazine. This time it features layouts, and is thus probably more relevant to non-train builders, with its demonstration of landscaping and detailing. Highlights in this issue include articles on the excellent layout of Alban Nanty, the collaborative layouts of Mike Pianta (scruffulous) Continue reading →
What may look like a farm barn by Mike Yoder is actually an engineering bay for a mecha. Covert? Yes. Clever? Definitely. Check out the video for some functional elements of the build.
Anyone who’s looked at my photostream in any detail would have noticed I’ve slowly but surely been collecting English trains, vehicles and buildings from the pre-WWII period. Ultimately I have a goal of assembling it all into a single layout, and this street is my first demonstration. I’m really, really hoping to make it to Continue reading →
Dark-Alamez has built us a Chicago street section. Two of the buildings are based on real ones, while the third one is out of his imagination. It took me just a glance at the thumbnail to recognize the city this creation represents. Aside from beautiful buildings my favorite is the Chicago Loop railway segment.
A while back, I reviewed Olivia’s House for the Friend’s line. I mentioned then that I might just have an infatuation with the new line, and I’m pretty sure that’s still true. At the time I reviewed the set, I enjoyed the functionality of it, and was inspired to build something similar. What came of Continue reading →
I’ve been somewhat less than diligent in my checking of Brickshelf lately, so I count myself very fortunate I caught the Eurobricks thread for this wonderful train station. Unlike art deco, which is lends itself nicely to LEGO bricks, the art nouveau style of Rochefort’s main station is quite a challenge to represent in LEGO. Continue reading →
Gilcelio Chagas from LUG Brasil is known for his miniland scale cars, but his recent model is something much different – a desalination plant made for an electrical engineering project. There are numerous details in the elements and custom decals, which you can appreciate in the Flickr set.
Well, if they do, there’s a lovely barber shop on the ground floor of this terraced apartment building by Christer Nyberg. The building has a complete interior, so don’t miss all Christer’s photos on Flickr. Via Brick Town Talk.
