Treasure Island

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.

A motorized windmill is the last addition to Matija Grguric’s western layout. The details of the mill are great, specially the way he built the blades.

Medieval Cafe and Market Street

February 3, 2011

Could you imagine how it would be the Cafe Corner and The Market street during medieval times? Kris kelvin could and made a brilliant MOC based in these two classical LEGO sets.

The Outer Wall

January 15, 2011

Castle and Medieval MOCs are two of my favorite theme’s and today I found this outer wall MOC that captivated me by its technique of using tiles to bust the effect of stone bricks and the farmer working in the cotton field.

Ye Old Forge

November 8, 2010

The blacksmith’s shop is the newest MOC of Derfel Cadarn, one of my favorite builders. The overall design is great as well as the lot of incredible details. The technique to build the stone walls using small round parts isn’t new but, once again, proofs that works very well to get the desired effect.

Micro Abu Simbel – Egypt

October 13, 2010

Jonathan Gilbert (aka Shmails) built a micro Abu Simbel, the famous temple carved into the side of a mountain in Egypt for the MCCVI over at Classic Castle. These micro constructions always fascinated me. I love the techniques to get those great details, such as the dozen of levers to represent the boat’s oars.

Indian trading port

September 8, 2010

Swash buckler built a nice and uncommon Indian trading post. The buildings are nicely integrated into the Indian architecture, the daily tasks of the natives and English settlers turns the construction very dynamic but I still think that the MOC wins by the originality of the chosen theme.

Crownie Blacksmith

Discovered by The Brother Bricks, Peter deYeule built a cool blacksmith shop that follows the style of the market village very closely.

Chinese Junk

July 23, 2010

Arzlan built an amazing Chinese junk. The hull of the sailboat is very well design and I really liked the way he built the sails with a mix of black and red plates.

Arzlan gives an interesting historical introduction of this kind of boats in his flickr gallery:

“A junk is a Chinese sailboat design dating from ancient times and still in use today. Junks were developed during the Han Dynasty (206 BC–220 AD) and were used as ocean-going vessels as early as the 2nd century AD. They evolved in the later dynasties, and were built and used throughout Asia for extensive ocean voyages. They were found, and in lesser numbers are still found, throughout South-East Asia and India, but primarily in China, perhaps today most famously in Hong Kong. Also, found more broadly, is a growing number of modern recreational junk-rigged sailboats.”

Medieval Inn

May 22, 2010

After being away for a few days, History Bricks comes back with a Portuguese MOC of an interesting medieval Inn built by NoroPT.

It appears to me that he used the Medieval Market Village as reference to this construction but with better details. I must say that I really liked the way NoroPT built the roof. Good job!
