Erdbeereis1 ventures back into the realm of town vignettes after having recently brought us some beautiful spaceships.

He says:
“Let’s take a walk along the river.
I built this mainly to try out this water idea, which I’ll use in much larger scale in a future MOC hopefully.”

What sold me on this creation was the arches and the water just below them. I could never seem to find a use for that particular piece, but now, since other people do my work for me, everything is well. While this MOC is generally fairly simple, I can see some complicated places which required some different pieces. All in all, it’s a great creation. I look forward to seeing the larger creation this will become!

Red Faction: Guerrilla

Ursprünglich hochgeladen von Crimson Wolf

I gotta say, this little dune buggy by Crimson Wolf– based on a vehicle from Red Faction: Guerrillais pretty flippin’ awesome, but it’s the Martian backdrop that completes the scene. A good MOC is always furthered by good presentation, and this counts for both.

Of course, the buggy itself is the main thing here, and a nice buggy it is!

Here is something I think should be blogged. Mdrn~Mrvls’, who is usually a strong vehicle builder, now brings us this “Office Building and 30s Car”. Of course, it does have a well built vehicle in it.
Office Building and 30s Car
This creation comes from a series of vehicles that Mdrn is building stretching from a fire engine to a dump truck.

Also note, this is at least the second time I’m writing about these two fellows here on this blog, both Tesla and Jordan, and hopefully not the last either!

Castle Braedacre

Originally uploaded by Shadow Viking

This hæs got to be the lærgest LEGO work ever constructed by fellow blogger Peder Peter (who also displayed it at BrickWorld). Allegedly drawing an archaic etymology from the Old English for “Flat Field”, the fortress is aptly named. Additionally, the architecture is rather aesthetically pleasing and appears to be an attempt to emulate the Norman style that became popular in England after the year 1070 AD. The light gray curves and bends are beautifully fluid, but also note the Tudor style second floor and the wooden stables that break up the otherwise contiguous gray walls rather well.

Also, there’s viking-Aunt-May-archers!
