The Great War – 100th aniversary

July 18, 2014

Ciamosław Ciamek built a wonderful MOC with 3 parts celebrating the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War.


“I: ‘Enthusiasm’ (Paris 1914)
Mobilization in France. The crowd greets soldiers marching, and the recruitment point is popular.”

“II: ‘Awe’ (Passchendaele 1917)
Positional War. The so-called third Battle of Ypres, fought in a sea of mud, in which drowned tens of thousands of soldiers.”

“III: ‘Glory’ (Vaux-sur-Somme 1918)
April 21, 1918 Manfred von Richthofen – ‘Red Baron’ – was shot down on the French territory. Probably by the Australian machine gunner.”

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.

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.

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…”

Airborne in Normandy – 1944

September 1, 2010

Ciamoslaw Ciamek (aka PigletCiamek) has done another excellent layout, this time showing the war scenario of the airborne in Normandy at 1944.

There a lot of cool details that is hard to point out the favorites. I will suggest a close look to the German tank, infantry and the anti-aircraft machinery.

Here is the Ciamek’s description of the diorama:

Diorama shows US airborne troops landing in Normandy.
At night of 5/6 June 1944, as a prelude to the landing in Normandy operation an airborne troops assault was made. The work is inspired by the events from St. Mere Eglise town described in a book and depicted in the movie “The Longest Day”.

It is a “loose” presentation of the subject , as despite the quite “idyllic” atmosphere, there is also an unexpected gathering of German military equipment:
– Tiger tank
– Flakvierling anti-aircraft gun
– Anti-aircaft searchlight with a generator
– Wehrmacht post

Enemy Ace in No-Man’s Land

August 24, 2010

Hound Knight built an incredible scene that shows Rittmeister von Hammer attempting to take out an easy target. The construction has awesome details. I’m not sure, but it appears that the nose of the plane was built with a Bionicle facemask, I loved the way he represented the black cross in the airplane wings, and the ice-cream bricks are a cool representation of the bullets hitting the ground.

Battalion Aid Station

August 7, 2010

Dunechaser presents a MOC of World War II where “Medics provide treatment to casualties at a Battalion Aid Station in early June 1944, as an M3 Half-track rumbles by in a muddy lane behind the bullet-riddled farmhouse wall”.

The amount of details turns this construction into an incredible representation of a war scene. The bullet holes at different levels in the wall, the medic carrying the bandage made with a door piece, the tent made up of skate ramps, and other great details…

1919 T-Bucket/ Fokker DR1

May 23, 2010

I’m trying to go back on track with good historical MOCs. For today post, I would like to present this pair of brilliant World War I MOCs built by Lino M. The first MOC is a representation of a Ford Model-T while the plane is a Fokker DR1 Triplane, the same model as the famous Red Baron.

See more details of theses constructions here.
