Nightfall: Version with hydraulic platform/Version mit Ladebordwand

Alex Sonny: Flatbed truck with Cromwell tank/Tieflader mit Cromwell-Panzer

Since the tank is clearly meant to be a museum object this might be the only military MOC you’ll ever see on BW./Da der Panzer klar als Ausstellungsstück zu erkennen ist, machen wir eine Ausnahme, was das Bloggen militärischer MOCs betrifft.

Many thanks for the submissions. We’d love to see more of this stuff. To be continued …

Search Function: Low 2-seater/Niedriger Zweisitzer

E Squeezing minifigs into cars is often a tough job. Either the car looks good, but the fig doesn’t fit. Or the fig does fit, but the car looks like it’s owned by some giants from another dimension. Some people even mutilate their figs to get them seated – they just take off their legs. Horrible! Now Search Function has found a way to fit the figs into very low cars which even don’t look out of scale if the fig is standing beside them – which is very nice. It’s quite refined and requires some sophisticated SNOT work (see below).

D Minifiguren in Autos quetschen ist ein hartes Geschäft: Entweder das Auto sieht gut aus und die Figur passt nicht. Oder die Figur passt, aber Continue reading

Boise Bro: “Full House” Victorian/Wohnhaus im San-Francisco-Stil

E Another amazing house builder is Boise Bro, completely unknown to us till to date. This victorian building  (one of the typical “Painted Ladies” of San Francisco) is inspired by a TV show named “Full House”. Now this is really top-notch building: nice techniques, a lot of great detailing, but not over the top, all in all well balanced and very stylish at the same time. There’s a fantastic interior, too. This is a building style we really love, also because of the sheer size which meets quite well the scale we’re aiming at, too. We’ll surely keep track of this builder.

D Boise Bro war uns bis dato völlig unbekannt. Dabei gehört dies sicherlich zum Besten, was es derzeit im Bereich Häuserbau gibt. Bei diesem “viktorianischen” Wohnhaus im San-Francisco-Stil ist praktisch alles erfüllt, was uns besonders freut: Continue reading

Ben: Li’l Red Express Truck

E Ben has already featured on BW with his amazing Lotus Esprit. Now, after a long building process, he delights us with his great 7w Li’l Red Express Truck, a 1978 Dodge pick-up truck – in fact a hot rod straight from the manufacturer. They don’t build them like this these days … We love the muscular shape and the colour combo – and those pipes, of course. Stephanie wants one!

D Ben hat schon mit seinem starken Lotus Esprit auf BW beeindruckt. Heute Continue reading

Jebbo Bouhuijs: Farm Village/Bauerndorf

Wonderful farm by Jebbo Bouhuijs

E Jebbo Bouhuijs is a very talented allround-builder from the Netherlands. He is actually building a diorama of a rural area in the style of Kamerik, a village in the Netherlands. This highly detailed diorama is filled with sweet vehicles and other great stuff. Take a look at those swans and the great tile work! We highly recommend to visit his MOCpages account and review his awesome  MOCs.

D Jebbo Bouhuijs ist ein sehr talentierter Allrounder aus den Niederlanden. Er arbeitet an einem Diorama der ländlichen Gegend rund um Kamerik, ein Dorf in den Niederlanden. Dieses sehr detaillierte Diorama enthält viele tolle Fahrzeuge und einige andere Features. Sicher eine Besonderheit ist die Art und Weise, wie hier Fliesen eingesetzt werden, auch die Schwäne sind eine Klasse für sich. Wir empfehlen einen Besuch auf den MOCpages von Jebbo, um seine tollen Kreationen in Augenschein zu nehmen.

E Andrew Tate aka snaillad is surely one of our favourite LEGO architects. His buildings go far beyond the usual CC style, he’s a specialist in terms of Art Deco, and he’s a great car builder, too, a combination which is rather rare. Here you can see his lovely Riverbank Cottage, together with a nice scenery. Very british! The interior is worth a look, too (see below).
