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.
Hillel says, “Some details include presents, our three cats, all five family members, the menorah, the lit shamash (the candle you light the other candles with), soufganiot (jelly donuts – a holiday tradition), and a lit fire (thank you light brick). Enjoy!”
Hippotam‘s vignettes are always fascinating to look at. His latest shows off the barber’s new hair dryer along with a clever use of the Friends hairpieces.
The death-rays that Daleks use to EXTERMINATE! make sense. The plungers? Not so much. Pascal (pasakuru76) helps me to understand the purpose of that singular device.
This expressive vignette by Chris Maddison shows how much effect some simple posing and a bit of ingenious landscaping can impart. This scene reminds me of a re-imagining of Wall-E, featuring a fantastic humanoid robot. Good stuff.
Flickr user iridescent nohow has been quietly filling his photostream with delightfully ingenious little microscale vignettes. His clever parts usages are par excellence, and they often come at a scale a great deal smaller than most LEGO microscale creations. It’s well worth your time to peruse his photostream and ogle the magnificent miniatures he’s created, such as the scene below of Alice’s rendezvous with a certain infamous hatter of dubious sanity, followed by a terrific mountain temple.
Almost shockingly, I have managed to build something. I’ve been having quite a lot of fun lately playing with Neo-Classical architecture in microscale, and the recent abundance of good microscale pillar pieces, like the telescope piece, are conducive to that. Anyway, here’s the Temple of Ehlonna, goddess of the Forest, who makes her home in a great ancient tree.
