Niek Geurts of MrBrick.nl recently posted a lovely LEGO version of Korben Dallas’s favorite restaurant from The Fifth Element. While I love the boat’s hull and all the details Nieks has included, his technique for adding the background is just as interesting: I wouldn’t have expected that taking a picture in front of a computer Continue reading →
After building a creation that uses real water, Aaron Amatnieks (akama1_lego) sets out to do what no one has ever done – to use fire in a Lego creation, and I’m not talking about flame pieces. Kids, don’t try this at home!
Dutch builder Nieks G. built this lovely paddle-wheeler for a contest on Eurobricks. With a gorgeously curved deckhouse in dark red, it’s a boat on which I’d love to cruise up the Nile. You can see more photos in the photoset on Flickr and on MrBrick.nl. Via Legobloggen.
Niek Geurts‘s modernist house is an architectural feat. The builder created this original design inspired by the Dutch architect Willem Dudok. There are quite a few subtle details you may not notice at first glance such as the diagonal tiling of the sidewalk and the construction of the brown walls using plates. There’s even a Continue reading →
This beautiful Dutch house is the work of Niek Geurts and it is lovely. I have friends in the Netherlands. Until they tell me differently, I’m imagining that they live here.
To Aaron Amatnieks (akama1_lego) that is not really a question (warning! may offend the easily offended). A follow up to the last post.
Aaron Amatnieks (akama1_lego) and I were spending a productive day in a LEGO chatroom yesterday when he showed me a tree he’d been working on. I absolutely loved the concept and went off to build one for myself. I’ve been thinking about gum trees a bit lately so had some ideas to try out showing Continue reading →
Aaron Amatnieks (akama1_lego) had a lot of transparent LEGO, a water pump and some light bricks lying around. This is the strangely mesmerising result. I particularly love ‘ice’ but they both look great animated.
Forbidden Cove’s first major contest, the Jolly Roger, set sail on the 1st of the month and there are some very good pirate creations cruising in. Here is a few of my favorites so far. Dutch Soldier Outpost by Nieks Under the Waves by Elephant_Captain Pirate’s Island by SlyOwl
A neat diorama by Niek Geurts (Nieks www.mrbrick.nl). I don’t know why I get a sense of marshiness from this, but I like it.
It seems that most of the buses we blog are variants of the iconic London Bus (the Routemaster). Today I’d like to introduce you to the more modern buses seen in Europe. Both make excellent use of the new windscreen piece. This bus by Nieks (mrbrick) runs in Breda, the Netherlands. While this one by Continue reading →
Niek Geurts built an interpretation of a post-apocalyptic scene that’s different than most for two obvious features. The first feature is the diagonal road, which breaks up the squareness of the diorama. The second feature involves the abundant overgrowth of plant life, which adds a nice color contrast to the classic rubble colors. There’s many Continue reading →
