Beatiful school ship Sagres of the Portuguese navy

Jorge Reis built this wonderful tall ship representing the school ship Sagres of the Portuguese navy. It is the third ship with this name in the Portuguese Navy, so she is also known as Sagres III and is on service since 1961.

The ship was available to the public during the Braga Brincka 2014 event, a LEGO exhibition organized by the Portuguese LUG – PLUG. I wish I could attend the event and closely observe the MOC, including the wonderful small details in the ship’s deck!

I wonder if the pressure on the hull parts isn’t too big to cause some deformations…

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 :)

Collectible Minifigures Series 6 and 7

Toys N bricks had publish the first official pictures from the upcoming series of Collectible Mifigures. Like previous collections, these new series presents new historical figures that will delight many LEGO fans.

The 6th series presents a roman warrior. Personally I’ve been waiting for ages for the LEGO roman empire. This figure and the new rounded bricks of the Atlantis sets will make a beautiful  combination :-)

This collection also presents a barbarian warrior, which is nice for the battles against the roman army, and a cowboy that will fit perfectly in any western MOC.

 

 

The 7th series presents a Viking warrior (girl?), a cool hippie that will fit nicely 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van and, my favorite, the Aztec warrior (or at least, what I think that it is). The mermaid man will also make a cool Neptune roman god of the sea.

Riverside Boathouse

Who wants to live in the country side? This is another cool MOC by Derfel Cadarn.
