Ramadhan Kareem

Ramadhan has come again. Ramadhan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, it’s a special month where every muslims are fasting (know more in Wikipedia). As a celebration, last year I created this interior creation and for this year I created something different, which is a big lantern with Islamic shape. The built itself looks plain and nothing special, but the inner part of it used a unique technique I found. There are some flying parts or not connected parts, but as it is a digital model, it don’t bother me because it is not seen in the final render.

Rovers for mighty little explorers

Space is for everyone, no exception for these cute little explorers. To follow their curiosity, they are using their own small rovers. The models are based on Mighty Micros set. The left rover is inspired by or as a tribute of 886: Space Buggy and the right one is my own design. Both of them are built with similar width and length, large parabolic antenna, also classic-space color. It is sure a real Mighty Micros rovers.

Bring on the gas!

Gas is an important thing for rover. Because the spacemen sure don’t want to explore the planet only by walking with their legs. And this is the job for this tanker, bring the gas to the spaceman’s base. The model is built with classic space livery, completed with red wheels and retro-futuristic look.

The actual features for this model is articulated manual steering, suspension by the rotation of ball socket connection, and fits one minifig in the cabin. Read More…

Space racing duel

Space racing vehicle concept in LEGO is always cool. But for this scale with much detail is more awesome. This spacecraft by Victor is so compact. Even though the scale is small, he already mix technic with system in one build and even built with NPU, the heart of the vehicle is done with Axl’s torso (Design ID 24128).

Hot Red Hatch

Hatchback is a compact car with less capacity than sedan, you can use it anywhere, unless you are a race addict. My latest build is a modern sport hatch, the body is sleek, the ground clearance is low, with big rim wheel, and with dual exhaust which mean it has a big engine. It is sure a great sport hatchback.

Getting ready for 2018!

Long time no post here. Sorry, because I’ve been very busy these days and I just came back from a vacation. I wanted to post something before 2017 ends, so here’s what I came up with a special build. I usually made renders and models with hidden meanings, and so for this build, the opened door represent we’re going to 2018 and the bright light in front of it means a bright future which I hope we all have it.

Happy New Year all!

Rapper Raptors

What if raptors could act just like a human? I think that they would like to rap from it’s name. To realise that idea, I created a trio raptor models (Blue, Charlie, and Delta from Jurassic World movie) which is based from dimensions set (71205: Jurassic World Team Pack) model and completed with full LEGO desert-like scene, except for the mountains and ground. It looks like the raptors also following the modernization, look at those clean teeth and shiny claw! The raptors were also use headphone and caps to make it looks like real rapper from Jurassic era.

It is actually my first most complicated render I’ve ever made, I also made bush, trees, rocks and added surface imperfections to the bricks. That’s why the memory consumption is large because of them. Effort won’t betray you, the result is no doubt, it’s like a photorealistic one for me.

Can’t Rollin’…

Yes, the LEGO version of BB-8 can’t rollin’ because of the stud (except if you use this crazy technique)! This is an old idea from me and I have created the similar post one year ago, but since the quality of the image is low, I had to recreate it into a high-quality and photorealistic render since it was a great meme idea.

And to get the job done, I try to edit and composite the raw image to a more realistic one. The result is worth it even though it’s just a render of a two parts figure.

Happy Eid al-Adha 2017!

There’s another celebration again! Today is Eid al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice). It is the second of two Muslim holidays celebrated worldwide each year. It honors the willingness of Ibrahim to sacrifice his son Ishmael, as an act of obedience to Allah’s (God’s) command. Before he sacrificed his son, God intervened by sending his angel Jibrīl who then put a ram in his son’s place. In commemoration of this, an animal is sacrificed (know more in Wikipedia).

As a Muslim, I celebrate it too in real life and in LEGO. The model I’m gonna show to celebrate this occasion is a Minecraft scene with a pen, some animals, a house, and completed with Minecraft style background.

I’m not a Minecraft gamer. The model is done by searching for a reference on the internet, so I’m sorry if I made some inaccuracies in the render. Anyway, it always fun to create a model in a selected theme that you haven’t make or know about it.

No obstacle is too hard for this truck

When you’re on a military job in the middle of nowhere, you need a huge and durable vehicle. And that’s what I made for now. A huge and durable transportation, it also packed with many unique features that specially made for that environment. The model I built is a Half-Track Truck since tank tracks really help to drive over rough terrain and I mixed it with truck which has a large capacity.

See more of this badass truck!
