Rod Gillies‘ entry to Classic-Castle’s Mini Castle Contest is simply fantastic. The techniques he uses are wonderful–the Exoforce hair as a deciduous, Technic pins as crops. But what REALLY catches my eye is the mini tudors. They just…work.
Sam W. (-infomaniac-) answers that question with a brick rendition of the folding city from Inception. He built the model in three scales to achieve three levels of forced perspective. It’s like the dream in a dream thing but with Lego, yea.
Really good Micro-scale is hard to do, but Crises_crs did it. I love the dragon and the Bionicle baseplate fits perfectly.
Jon Walker posted pictures of his SHIP that won Best in Space and People’s Choice awards at BrickCon 2009. I love the unique donut-shaped cargo containers. The lack of gaps between the wedges reflects the perfect technique that Jon used to create these shapes. The sand green spine adds a hint of color and the inclusion of two microscale escort fighters completes the setup.
I have no idea what the name means, but that doesn’t make this ship any less awesome. Robb (Dasnewten) has graced us all with another fantastic creation.
It crams in myriad angles, as well as nooks and crannies. There’s also some great surface detailing mixed in, not too much, and not too little. The overall effect is quite believable as a functional space craft.
