Sintra’s tram

Sérgio Batista is a great train builder, which I had the pleasure to meet in person a few years ago. His latest (virtual) MOC is a representation of the old Sintra’s trams that took people from the town’s historical center to the Praia das Maçãs (Apple Beach).

City Tram at LEGO CUUSOO

May 20, 2013

Trams are an iconic mean of transportation of several cities across the globe, just like the ones we can find at San Francisco or Lisbon.

In my opinion, LEGO is missing these wonderful vehicles so I had proposed at LEGO CUUSOO a new city transportation set, based on my Lisbon tram MOCs.

I hope I can count with your support by approving the project at http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/1079. Please, help me share it on facebook also by visiting History Bricks facebook page.

The project is gaining more and more supporters each day. Than you very much! :)

Till.Uwe.Marwede managed to capture really well the essence of the old Carris Tourist Tram. The chosen scale let him to share incredible details.

I always got fascinated with these means of transportation. In fact, I’m the author of another version of the Carris trams at a smaller scale, as you can see in the next picture :)

Window of the Chapter House

July 22, 2010

Hello everyone! I’ve been very busy lately due to professional reasons but I’m back and to celebrate I would like to present one of the great constructions I’ve seen lately. Romão ans his students built the window of the Chapter house that belongs to the Convent of the Order of Christ at Tomar – Portugal, classified by UNESCO as World Heritage.

The Convent of the Order of Christ was originally built in 12th century as a Templar stronghold. After the Order of the Knights Templar was dissolved in the 14th century, the Portuguese branch of the order was turned into the Knights of the Order of Christ, which supported Portugal’s maritime discoveries of the 15th century.

Romão is, in my opinion, one of the best Portuguese builders, his portfolio includes the Cathedral of St. Macario.
