    @basty I really like how you did the end of the counter so it lifts up to let the workers get through

    Been working on the Harry Potter #75953 ... most of the build is great but IMO the tree comes out really stupid looking. I suppose I should take pictures? Certainly before I deconstruct that tree! The rest is pretty neat.
  • GrannyLEGOGrannyLEGO FloridaMember Posts: 146

    This is the stupid tree in the Whomping Willow #75953 set. The car is supposed to be able to br snatched up into the branches but it won;t stay up there worth diddly. The tree itself is ugly and not very tree looking. It will almost certainly be deconstructed soon.

    I've been building a MOC based on a certain robot from Disney Infinity. He's not quite done, but he looks quite...huggable, and non threatening. He's also got the most detailed articulation of any MOC I've ever done, and is scaled for minifigs(to hug, natrually.) V1 is floating around here, if you look, V2 has removable armor added, no pictures yet.

    I finally found a fun use for the little action stand bits from the DC CMF series. Now the little cloud kids can float about Troll Village:

    The cockpit canopies are supposed to be Transparent Light Blue to match the turrets, but I can't find them! I saw them three days ago when I started this. I'm trying to put teeth on the mouth (without paint). This is from the 2003-2005 Clone Wars micro-series.
    This has to be one of the more daunting Star Wars MOCs to take on. I've seen it attempted a number of times, but unfortunately the elements just are not around for it to be 100% accurate. Personally I would love to see it in the form of an official set, as unlikely as it may seem right now. All the same yours looks awesome!

    Just cracked open #10218 Pet Shop. The youngest was jealous after Grace had her Newbury High School finished and wouldn't let Ellie play with it. Having access to pet shop should stop the moaning. We've lots of animals to supplement those that come with (various Lego dogs, cats and a rabbit).

    @GrannyLEGO, this is why I've gotten into the habit of building test assemblies when I'm suspicion of part of build I'm working on, in the early days I'd find the occasional design idea would have issues & have develop a work around. These days, I'm pretty good at spotting a potential issue as I design, I build a mock-up of the potential issue, test for structural integrity & then figure out what's stopping it from working. This is why all my Microfighter designs now are 100% build-able & most are up to the same rough play standard I figure TLG has for the official ones (for such small builds they can stand up to five year olds swooshing them & losing grip). There are actually some good methods in the Star Wars Microfighters for compacting & reinforcing builds, could be worth your time downloading a few of the instructions to see some of techniques used.

    @tr100, just looking at your chev logo, could the 61409 slope with slots be a more streamlined method to achieve the result you're looking for? Overall, nice build, love the colour scheme.

    @VorpalRyu I'm still trying to build my parts collection and seem to have more workarounds because of part shortages. Now if the budget would just cooperate I could simply order all the missing ones! Would sure be nice if life worked that way. More designers should do test mockups! Do you recommend any in particular of the Star Wars Microfighters for reinforcement techniques? I'm not a big Star Wars fan so I don't know much about those builds.
  • monkeyhangermonkeyhanger Member Posts: 2,939
    Finished the pet shop and pleasantly surprised how robust it is - apart from knocking off the chimney pots a few times, it has stayed intact in the hands of a 5 year old. One missing part - a 1×1 LBG plate with horizontal clip for the guttering down pipe on the house half of the set. Sure I have loads somewhere but could not find one.

    Hadn't thought about that, like the idea! I'll have to play around with it.

    Just finished my first Architecture set - US Capitol Building. Absolutely love how it looks! I’m a huge fan of the architecture series but my budget generally always goes to City/Creator Expert. Saw this on sale for 20% off at a local store and couldn’t resist. 

    Found a tiny mistake in the instructions - It says you only need 1 of each pieces but then asks you to build it 4 times haha. First mistake I have personally noticed in a build. 


    Can’t wait to get more architecture sets (now I just need to find space to display this).

    I recently built a futuristic city (inspired by Jeff Friesen’s book “Lego Micro Cities”)...
    My wife bought me the book last year. The designs are amazing and I'm planning a MOC using the concepts from it soon.
    Tonight after tea we built Lucky Cat. Not a massive Brickheadz fan, but the cat looked brilliant.
    Little Miss Speedy was on build duty once more.

    I had a lot of fun building #70814 - Emmet's Contruct - O - Mech this last weekend. I saw a few pieces in a bulk lot I purchased several months ago that I never fully sorted out. After a quick search of the part and realizing what set it went to, I had the rest sorted in no time! A quick BL order to finish off the two Robo Skeletons and a handful of other parts, I have a 100% complete set! 

    I've wanted this set ever since seeing it on display at a friends house a few years ago. I was just getting back into Lego around the time of the first Lego Movie, so the set wasn't on my radar then. I'm thrilled to add it to my collection now!

    I've just built the new Speed Champions Audi Quattro. It's a beast.


    Seriously, it's a massive car. I can't believe Lego is promoting 10yr olds driving, because surely that's a child next to it!


    In fact it's so big that I dug out a few of my old Speed Champions cars to compare it with.

    Specifically, this Audi:


    And here are the comparison shots:




    The new ones aren't just wider, they're on a completely different scale.

    It's like the old ones were play toys, and the new ones are display models. There's a huge difference.

    Also, I might have to get the others now...

    Agreed. 

    & I had to line these up after I finished mine too.

    I've been enjoying a bit of diversity with my building of late.
    First up was taking apart #42077 to build the 'B' model.

    l actually like the 'B' model finished build more than the 'A' model despite the lower piece count.

    Next up was #76124.
    I love the design of all the Hulkbuster variants but this is the first version I've actually built (I do have the other three versions to build at some point).

    Despite the lack of articulation in the elbow joints, I really liked this build and looks great when displayed.

    Finally #75240 (big thanks to the heads up by @brickedin pointing out this was half price on Amazon a short while back). Another fun build and really nice to get a Star Wars ship that's a different colour scheme especially with the slope usage on the wings as it looks quite striking. I prefer the design of this to the Sith Tie fighter from the Rise of Skywalker subtheme.

    Sooooo pleased I didn't pay full price for it though as when it's finished it definitely doesn't feel like a £65 set.

    Next will be to tear them all down so I have space to build something else.

    Not quite sure the hairpiece belongs on the outrider! Almost did a double take when I saw this picture!

    It was left over when the other figs had their helmets on so stuck it on the outrider because I found it amusing & being a person thats easily pleased that was all that mattered.  :)

    I spent some time last night tinkering with some flex track sections attempting to create a 90 degree cross over track piece. Not perfect but I think it will do the trick. Gonna give it a trial run tonight.

    Very nice! You should add a person staring at their phone so intently that they walk right into the hole! ...Well, it would make me laugh, anyway! And no one would actually get hurt.

    I love this scene @GrannyLEGO
    I would try to recreate something similar in my city if it didn't mean raising all of the modulars by 3 bricks! Very realistic

  • GrannyLEGOGrannyLEGO FloridaMember Posts: 146
    Ahhh, a good reason not to attempt a city. I've gotten off into these little mini-builds and am having a lot of fun. It is also interesting when I don't have some of the pieces!

    i agree with you about this model, but i have the A model displayed because i didn't really want all the extra pieces lying around waiting to be lost.

    Just finished putting some of the dots together. Not bad. Not my thing but my daughter likes them.

    Fortunately it's not an issue for me as the whole thing is now dismantled bagged up and stored.
    One of the very few advantages of having absolutely no room for displaying more than 1 or 2 sets at a time. 
  • GrannyLEGOGrannyLEGO FloridaMember Posts: 146
    Taking a break from making myself crazy. I am not sure whether my current build would be a MOC or simply an alternate build ... I am building the #40305 LEGO Store set with changes. The major being instead of two floors of store open at the back it is one floor twice as big with a hinge to open it. The base is a bit more raised than the original and I have stuck a mouse with some cheese under there to be seen only when it is opened out on the hinges.
    You can see the hinge to the right and the water tap from the pipe that goes through the mouse space. The interior of the front half of the shop is like the original (so far anyway). I think I need to go get some sleep and maybe come back to it in the wee hours!

    More or less finished ... I see the steps in front need a little improvement and that dark gray strips around the walls in the back should go all the way around. I see I managed to knock the pennants around when I was taking the pics and probably needs a little tweaking here and there ... thoughts/ideas anyone?

    Made a start on my birthday stash with the new GWP train. Very basic, but looks just right.
    Little Miss Speedy built a Dots bracelet first so she could model it!

    I had a little down time yesterday and pulled out #75259 20th Anniversary Snowspeeder yesterday. I had a lot of fun putting it together and was able to theme it a bit more on my shelf with a few tauntauns and a wampa.
