BrickCon 2013 Review

October 7, 2013

Fantastic Lego creations abounded at BrickCon 2013 in Seattle, WA. Amongst the mini-fig scale recreations of Hogwart’s Castle and Rivendell, between the micro scale Battle of Hoth and the homage to Red. vs. blue, an attending history fan could find much to delight.

I’ll start by one of the collaborative builds produced by BattleLUG, titled “Battle through the Ages.” The sequence of displays follows the evolution of warfare from ancient history to the modern period. Here are a couple segments of the display.

The Pelopsonnesian War

The Crusades

Several different battles from World War II were displayed, all collaboratively created between several AFOL and TFOL builders. Behold Operation Brickarossa :

Brickinawa:

The Allied advance through Normandy. Note the hedge rows!

In the next post, we’ll review some of the other, non-warfare related history entries at BrickCon.

B-17 Flying Fortress

September 8, 2013

Recently featured on TBB

B-17 Flying Fortress

The iconic Boeing B-17 “Flying Fortress” returns to the skies with this model by Brian Fitzsimmons. The nose turret and bombardier’s station show considerable detail, including two smaller windows aft of the nose. The sculpting of the wings, in particular, stands out for its elegant shapes.

As impressive the model, Brian’s Flickr feed includes LDD renderings of is model that are also worth checking out.

M4A4 Sherman RC

Do you remember the post about WWII MOCs from Brincka 2013 and the great work of Luís Pedro?

Now he surprised us with a new version of his Sherman motorized with Power Functions.

Awesomeness!

Normandy 1944

May 15, 2013

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.

WWII Micro airport

November 4, 2011

I’m passionate with micro constructions and this small world war II airport built by Henning Birkeland ia a delight.

I also suggest that you take some minutes and appreciate all other his work. It will be a time well spent.

 

Go, go, go!

Look at this great World War 2 scene created by Schneider for Bricks Adventure 2011 in Hong Kong, and shared by Arzlan.
Suddenly I feel like to see again The Rescue of Private Ryan…

Todeslager the Nazi death camp

November 21, 2010

Yoshix built Todeslager, his representation of one of the many Nazi death camps. It’s always a delicate subject to talk about but in my opinion it’s positive to remember the facts. History should not be forgotten.

Concerning the MOC, the overall design is good, such as the tower, but the fence is my favorite detail!

See more pictures here.

In his post, Yoshix refers to the most controversial LEGO sets of all time, the Nazi camp‘s built by an artist – Zbigniew Libera – to the Jewish Museum in New York.

Commemorating 70 years since the Battle of Britain

October 24, 2010

The Wings of Brick didn’t let the chance pass to pay a tribute to the men that fought in the Battle of Britain 70 years ago. At first glance the Bf-109 appears to follow the LEGO Creator line even the techniques are far from being the same. Let’s join the author in “a moment of silence to remind the brave men who fought for their countries, both Allied and Axis…”

You may see more pictures here.
