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

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…
