It’s with great pleasure and satisfaction that I come to announce that History Bricks has a new author. Sérgio Antunes agreed to participate, and I have no doubt that his skills as an historian and his past as AFOL will be of great value in the growth and promotion of the blog.
The idea came up during a conversation while commenting his work in PLUG’s event Brincka 2013 at Porto Salvo. He participated with an incredible Napoleonic Army.
Welcome to History Bricks, Sérgio. I look forward to read your posts

I came across this wonderful layout of a world war II battle in Normandy, made by Lugpol members Pit Mrutek Rasch Glaz Pimpur dmac Borys Misiek Axel Nexus 7 Matix Szarik Kris Kelvin and many other water helpers.
The amount of detail is incredibly vast that is difficult to enumerate and where to start. I will mention just a few details that caught my attention: the notion of movement in the water, the explosions, the detail of the studless vehicles and mainly the many scenes with minifigs that give life to this scenario.

James Pegrum is one of my favorite “historical builder”. Today he presented us a wonderful creation of a Roman theater.
The applied techniques are rather simple, however he managed to capture with great detail the grandiosity of the ancient building.

Romão Santos is already a well known builder because of his huge constructions and involvement in the social project “Projecto Construir” (“Building project”). “Projecto Construir” is an initiative in social entrepreneurship aimed at providing support for institutionalized persons, in particular children, providing them unique moments in nature playful and educational, through their involvement in the construction of large-scale models with LEGO® bricks.
His current project consists of building a large-scale model of the castle Guimarães. Guimarães is the first capital city of Portugal and its castle an important landmark of the country. Check how great the castle’s model is turning into to

The Colonial Outpost is a great construction from The Brick Time Team. It caught my attention because of the elaborated techniques for building the water, the fine detail of the rocks and most important the micro-detail using round bricks on the walls.

TheBrickMan is the author of one of the best historical recreations I have seen lately. The LEGO Colosseum has a huge amount of details and the mix of the past and present is phenomenal!

Till.Uwe.Marwede managed to capture really well the essence of the old Carris Tourist Tram. The chosen scale let him to share incredible details.
I always got fascinated with these means of transportation. In fact, I’m the author of another version of the Carris trams at a smaller scale, as you can see in the next picture
