September 10, 2014

Great work by Matt Base representing Europe’s countries with some of the most iconic monuments. The micro scale work is amazing. Thumbs up also for the map itself!

Back from vacations

August 29, 2014

Finally I was able to take two weeks vacation. Unfortunately they will end today but on the other side I found my Brickforge’s package on the mailbox when I got home.
Stay tuned for the incoming review of some of the Brickforge’s Wave 1 of RIGGED WWII items :D

Does anyone struggle with MOCs?

August 17, 2014

Interesting discussion going on Eurobricks about how to let the creativity flow and start building MOCs.
I struggle myself sometimes to translate into bricks the ideas I have. Most of the times, I’ll use pictures of real buildings (usually historical monuments) as inspiration for my constructions.
How about you?

Here’s the link of the thread:

Granovian Seaport

Granovian Seaport it’s a nice building MOC built by Sir Edwyn. Loved the medieval architecture of the building and the fine details on the walls.

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.

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.

Brick Warriors – Parts reviews (1 of 4)

December 31, 2011

It was a nice surprise for me when I first read the invitation from Brick Warriors to write a review about their custom parts. They would send me a sample of their parts that I could analyse and write down the review.

I must confess that at the beginning I was a bit skeptical about what could I get. But all the doubts flew away after I opened the small bag with the pieces.

The quality of the plastic was near excellent, even better than many official LEGO parts (I’m not a great fan of the soft plastic used in many recent parts made by LEGO) and the overall design of the parts were also rather good.

I decided to divide this review into four parts (counting with this introduction) so I could get into details in each part. Without more delays, here’s the picture of all parts kindly offered by Brick Warriors.

I wish you all a happy and prosper new year!!!

LEGO CUUSOO is the new system from LEGO where users can share their ideas and if they get enough support from the community (10000 votes) LEGO will review it. If they approve your idea, you may have a chance to see it as a new official product.

I was thrilled with the idea, and submitted my project of the small replicas of Lisbon trams. I don’t recall of any LEGO trams sets and this could be a good opportunity for all of LEGO fans to get a new way of transportion in their own cities :-)

Here’s the page for this project. I hope you liked the idea and want to support it –

Thank you very much.
