Ginormous Circular Spacecraft

Building something huge in LEGO Digital Designer (LDD) is somewhat unusual. But sometimes there’s a people who still doing it. This gigantic Spacecraft by Max is an example of it and it’s truly beyond awesome! Just from the shape and size of it you may already think that it is awesome, but it also had full interior for “minifig” worker and that very nice detail. If you see a creation like this you may already asked for the parts count, the answer is it is made up from a whopping 12113 pieces!

If you already curious with the interior, here’s the interior of it. The interior offers all of the spacecraft and the workers’ needs including control panel and power system.

You can see more detailed view and the previous color of this giant in his Flickr album!

Splitting the Outer Space

There is no limit when you create a LEGO Spacecraft, you can use your big imagination to create anything – in LEGO form. This Starfighter spacecraft by Umbra-Manis is completely a wild design. What makes this so unique than any other LEGO spacecraft is the uses of a dozens of sharp ninja sword as somekind of wings. The selection of the color is also unique but simple, those are white, gold, and the trans-orange as the wind-shield color to complete the model.

Crazy High-Speed Chasing

High-Speed Chasing is a tough job for police officers. Also for this render made by NGCHunter2, it’s a tough work to create this realistically scene and all the detail in a Tiny Turbo scale. The scene packed up with vehicles that you normally see on a real High-Speed Chase, they are a car, some Police cars and a Helicopter also the virtually created scene.

Blender 2.78 - Tiny Turbos Vignette

The whole scene aren’t made all of LEGO, the only thing that made of LEGO is all the vehicles, the other were created in the Blender itself as the rendering software. Though not all of them made up of LEGO, but still has to be proud of, designing in Blender is not very easy.

Books of the past

Just read books in the library might be boring, what if it added something more about book? It could be much more interesting. So it came up as a book museum. But not seem as old as a museum to be meant. As an innovative building, this museum is environment-friendly, the whole building is powered by solar panel and on a sunny days you don’t need to power a lamp, because it has a huge windows. And not just a boxy building, I even added a little smooth shaping on the building to get even more architectural design value.

Drifting skills matter here

As you can see, downhill drifting skill is matter here, you don’t want to fall off from the hill. This downhill drifting scene by Alice Dee. remind us of Tokyo Drift, night drifting on the hill. Anyway, the scene captured all the details of the real downhill drifting and looks so real because the road not reflect to other object, composition, and many more. The only thing that make this scene not so real is how could a car driving above a clouds. Beside from that, the hill shaping is beautiful and the car is so small but it has so many details even fit a minifig inside of it.

I wonder, are there any car have fall down from there, because the road barrier almost fall off, looks like it have been hitten and it’s so dangerous. Rendered using Blender via Mecabricks.

Downhill Drifting Fun with Drift Trike

I’m in love with bike again, so I’ll do a Throwback or something like that of my old creation (not so old). It’s not regular bike, it’s a Tricycle but modified for drifting downhill. I see that using this trike is super fun, sadly I never try it.

LEGO Drift Trike by Kamal Muftie Yafi (KamalMYafi/Kamteey)

Sadly, this creation is unbuildable in real life. This creation is originally inspired by this LEGO creation and the shape was inspired by this real Drift Trike. As I like Orange, so I used it for some of my creation (also this creation). You can see more creations that I’ve built in Orange in my Flickr. This model was rendered using Bluerender.

It’s Boxy, but not a bad shape for racing

February has ended, but not for FebRovery. Recently I add a photo of this creation below in FebRovery group and still can be accepted. Main idea of this model is to use a car mudguard (Design ID 98282) at that placement below. You may think of a minifig Crutch (Design ID 24077) but not that part. And to add more model for FebRovery (DUH).

Downscaled Ford GT Race Cars

About a year ago, LEGO revealed a “Ford’s Return Celebration” animation video on their Youtube channel and LEGO has says that it wouldn’t coming out as a Set in their Facebook post, but what a surprise I think they changed they’re mind or just because many people requested to made that as a set, now it has been made as an Official Set, number “75881: 2016 Ford GT & 1966 Ford GT40” in this month. A micro car builder, Ron Dayes has completely remade both of the cars into a small scale, precisely 1/42 scale from the real car. Though it’s so small but it doesn’t lose any detail, even more precise shaping than the set.

LEGO 75881 Downscaled/Microscaled by Ron Dayes

I just love with the car shaping on a micro building. The amazing thing about this is, no parts that float or not connected. Rendered using Bluerender which is rendered directly from a LEGO Digital Designer (LDD) file. You may want to see more of his micro cars in his Flickr page.

Small doesn’t mean it can’t explore the Huge Space

I don’t know why, but now I just really like to create a Space themed thing. There’s also a WIP space vehicle I am going right now, I will probably post here. But for now it’s just a micro spaceship and my it’s own design, not inspired by a movie (like my NEO Fighter).

About the Render:
This model is rendered using Blender via Mecabricks and LDraw. I usually just use Mecabricks, but this Creation (MOC) used a LEGO “Back to the Future” Hoverboard (Design ID 21271) that not has been added yet in the MB database, I have requested for this but hasn’t been responded/added. As I don’t want to take a long time, all the parts except the missing one are using Mecabricks and the missing one using LDraw, imported using LDR Importer. And to match the color I still use the Mecabricks material for the LDraw parts. The LDraw part doesn’t have any LEGO logo on the studs…

Beautifully abandoned FIAT 500

No one like rusted out car, even the rust itself. But this rusted out FIAT 500 F model and render by Gabriele Zannotti may already change your mind about rust in LEGO. I wonder how did he make that? Because there’s so many details in it, from the scene, the color combination of the model, the atmosphere, and many more…

You can see the clean and shiny new FIAT 500 F in this other render and to see more render and version in his Flickr album.

This model is created by a collaboration of two builder, Gabriele Zannotti himself and saabfan. What make this so highly detailed is because they’re using real car and scaled it down in LEGO. Rendered using Blender via Mecabricks.
