Flickr user 2 Much Caffeine has created a compact little fortress for the Jolly Roger Competition over at ForbiddenCove. It’s simple, and that’s why it’s so successful. The white really contrasts nicely with the dark rock and brings out the structure as a whole. The courtyard in the middle is just like the real thing—the well, cannons, and door leading to the inside. I’m hoping this is part of something bigger…..
Tim Gould and Mike Pianta have created a terrific rendition of the Australian town of Ararat back how it was in 1972. Complete with angled city streets, train tracks, and very well-detailed terrain features such as the sand dirt and brick built trees, it’s easy to get lost in its detail. Check out more pictures on Brickshelf!
This was posted a long time ago on Classic-Town.net, but after looking around on through Misterzumbi’s Brickshelf images, I figured that this diorama deserved to be shown again. The house, barn, cornfield (with accompanying crop circles), pond, tractor, and abandoned truck are absolutely fantastic. The amount of detail in this is astounding, and just proves how much one can do with LEGO. Awesome work on this one!
Everything in this model just screams professional. The gate has a wonderful style to it and I especially like how the church is set at a slight angle to the otherwise parallel surroundings. The retaining wall is a brilliant idea and really complements the diorama quite nicely. Remember to check out the fountain area and the graveyard too!
Some very intriguing roof techniques on these structures. Although, my favorite aspect has to be the basements. It’s the only viable way of doing them with LEGO, and avante did a superb job pulling it off. I could just imagine these sitting on the hillside of some small European town. Very cool!
It looks like purple finally found its use! This amazing structure (which can be found in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince) by Joel.Baker is a solid 1000 pieces and a good three stories tall. The giant man out front actually tips his hat too! So what’s not to love! Great job on this one.
A tiny little newsstand to complement any modular building. It is creations like these that rarely get built; the ones that are meant to supplement a major model and capture the day-to-day situations in life. I really like this model, I wish it was set all on its own! Good work, LG!
