Lothan castle and the awesome waves

December 15, 2013

I was looking at some of the Classic Castle Contest entries and found this Lothan castle built by Adam Hollings. I really enjoyed the castle architecture but the main reason I’ve decided to make a post about it was those amazing waves.

The water effect is one of the best I ever seen in LEGO. The color gradient is very well balanced and wave form is nearly perfect! Great job!

soccerkid6‘s little brother has 11 years old and is the author of this gorgeous castle! I was surprised, specially after admiring the wall-work and the details inside the castle.

Collaborative Medieval diorama

October 14, 2013

Jimmy Clynche published a photo of this incredible medieval diorama, collaboratively built by eight people and presented for one weekend only at STEAM 2013. The main castle was presented here at HistoryBricks a few days ago.

The diorama captures most of the main daily activities of those medieval times. The outer walls divide the castle area from the villager’s area. The village has some houses under construction, the street market, the dirty ground, wagons, farming activities, and a lot of other delightful details :)

James Pegrum is building this massive medieval castle. The amount of details is stunning! In his gallery you may find the farmers working, the soldiers inside the towers rooms in their activities, the castle Lord with his personal guard leaving the castle and many more!

Miniscale Neuschwanstein Castle

July 7, 2013

Neuschwanstein Castle is a source of inspiration for many MOC builders. Today’s highlight goes to a miniscale version built by t-brick.

I liked the details and techniques applied in the windows and the highest tower. I think it ressembles the real castle very well.

If you liked the MOC consider supporting it at LEGO CUUSOO.

Today I stumbled in this awesome and giant Czech Hluboká Castle, built by Ryxe and Sanna and published by The Brothers Brick.

Of course, the size not always dictates the quality of the model, but this isn’t the case, where we can find lot of details in the towers and windows.

Guimarães Castle WIP

September 11, 2012

Romão Santos is already a well known builder because of his huge constructions and involvement in the social project “Projecto Construir” (“Building project”). “Projecto Construir” is an initiative in social entrepreneurship aimed at providing support for institutionalized persons, in particular children, providing them unique moments in nature playful and educational, through their involvement in the construction of large-scale models with LEGO® bricks.

His current project consists of building a large-scale model of the castle Guimarães. Guimarães is the first capital city of Portugal and its castle an important landmark of the country. Check how great the castle’s model is turning into to :)

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.

Black Falcon Siege Tower

December 3, 2011

This Siege Tower built by Knight Eklund is a very interesting entry for the CCC IX Siege Weapon. The archers tower are in fact my favorite detail about the whole construction.
