Colonial Harbor

August 7, 2014

Maydayartist presented at Eurobricks this gorgeous colonial harbor.
He applied simple techniques but getting a brilliant result in the end!
Among all details I would like to highlight the cobblestone street that looks great.

Remake of #6265-1: Sabre Island

July 23, 2014

What a wonderful remake of the classic LEGO set  #6265-1: Sabre Island :)
Among all details of the MOC I would like to highlight the sea waves approaching the beach.

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.

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.

The Princess Ceinwyn

August 9, 2011

Hi everyone. I have been out for some time but returned for a new season of historical posts :-)

I would like to open this new season in History Bricks with a MOC of one of my favorite builders – Derfel Cadarn. Just look at this princess and how beautiful she is with those incredible details. The whips are definitely my favorite building technique.
