“The sword in the stone” was one of my favorite Disney’s movies when I was a child (it still is). Derfel Cadarn build this incredible scene from the movie, with the Merlin’s tower (with Merlin and Archimedes at the window), Kay’s training and little Arthur.
The overall wall-work is amazing but I’ll highlight how he managed to build the round tower.
maydayartist presented today at Eurobricks Pirate Board this outstanding piece of art! The construction is so smooth and with an incredible amount of details that I can’t stop going back and forward between the pictures here.
The author took some time with his workmate (a wooden ship modeller) to choose the right ship. The selected ship was an English warship named “Revenge” from 1577 that was built at minifigscale in the proportion of 1:50.
Today’s highlight goes to this battle between the British and French forces, represented by Mattius Xavier in this MOC. The buildings techniques are simple, but the photo perspective and placement of figures gave life and action to the scene.
Fort Saint-Frédéric was a French fort built on Lake Champlain to secure the region against British colonization and control the lake. It was located in modern New York State across the lake from modern Vermont at the town of Crown Point, New York.
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.
MOVE! MOVE! MOVE!!!
Since 2008 I didn’t show up at an exhibition like Brincka 2013 and was a nice surprise to found a set of historical MOCs from WWII of high quality, specially after knowing that most of them were built by a TFOL with 15 years old!
The landing craft carrying the troops towards the beach is a classical scene, specially since the success of “Saving Private Ryan” movie. The above picture is my attempt to capture the emotion of that stressful moment! The MOC, however, is authored by Nuno Taborda and is a perfect replica of the Normandy’s landing crafts.
The infantry is well supported by an amazing army of vehicles and artillery built by Luís Pedro, the TFOL I mention earlier. Starting with this gorgeous Light M5 Stuart, Luís presented 25 highly detailed vehicles, including tanks, trucks, medical transport and cannons.
The soft top of the trucks were one of my favorite details. Luís get those from a vacuum cleaner bag. Great idea, I must say!
And finally, an overlook picture of the battalion:
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.
