BrickCon 2013 Review, part 2

October 15, 2013

In the previous post about BrickCon 2013, we mentioned that some of the best history-related MOCs have little or nothing to do with warfare.

One of my personal favorites was this gorgeous display of the Paro Taktsang (aka “Tiger’s Nest Monastery”):

Another fantastically detailed series, this set of MOCs displays “old” Anaheim, California.

 I don’t recall the official title of this MOC, but the scene reminds me of stories about Port Royal, Jamaica during the 16th and 17th Centuries.

And, for the heck of it, here’s a gratuitous shot of the humongous Rivendell MOC:

Treasure Island

Treasure Island

Incredible finding from TBB of this street inspired on the Treasure Island romance and built by Matthew Hurt. Every house has its peculiarities and fine details, with close historical allusions with pirates and the age of discovery.

Today I stumbled in this awesome and giant Czech Hluboká Castle, built by Ryxe and Sanna and published by The Brothers Brick.

Of course, the size not always dictates the quality of the model, but this isn’t the case, where we can find lot of details in the towers and windows.

Colonial Outpost

August 31, 2012

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.
