LEGO – Douro Historical Train

HistoryBricks had the great honour to be one of the first to have access to the new pictures of the LEGO Douro Historical Train masterpiece built by Sérgio Batista!

As usual his most recent construction is full of wonderful details and awesome building technics. He’s well known for using a lot of SNOT and using parts in unusual ways… :)

Sérgio is one of my favourite builders and makes me wish to know more about the trains and engines he recreates so well!

The following picture shows the real train following the path of River Douro, the famous Portuguese region where is produced some of the best wines in the world!
I had the pleasure to make the journey a few years ago and I highly recommend to anyone who enjoy a good experience and wonderful sights! For those you appreciate wine, I also recommend the visit to some of famous wine houses, where you can visit the wine cellars and taste the best Douro’s or Porto’s wine ;)

Video

Using LEGO® to simulate ESA’s touchdown on a comet

Another “giant leap for mankind” was taken this week when Rosetta landed on the comet 67P after 10 years of space travelling.
I would like to congratulate all people involved specially for ESA‘s team who is the main responsible for the project and I would like to share this video that explains the landing procedure using LEGO bricks :)

Colonial Harbor

Maydayartist presented at Eurobricks this gorgeous colonial harbor.
He applied simple techniques but getting a brilliant result in the end!
Among all details I would like to highlight the cobblestone street that looks great.
