MOC: N.W.E.F. ‘Hawk’

Formerly a member of the long-gone New World Explorer fleet, the Hawk-class fighter jet soared through space on many a scout mission. The single-engine fighter was the fastest and most versatile fighter in the fleet, but was lightly armed and armored. It does have a large fuel tank and powerful engine, plus twin blasters tipping the wings. The wing ends are also reinforced, so that only one extending landing gear leg (located under the main power converter) is necessary to land the craft and balance it perfectly on flat surfaces.

The construction of the ship itself is quite unique, employing multiple advanced building techniques. Not only that, but the wings rotate with perfect friction, and the cockpit opens to seat a minifigure at the controls.

This was one of Brickster_Tim’s LEGO Ideas projects, first released Summer 2016. While it never received much support, it is still worth posting here.

MOC: ‘The Intrepid Trio’: Build your own Story

Explore the depths of the mysterious cave with the Intrepid Trio! In this “Build your own Story” set, you can construct a unique adventure for you and your minifigures. Ride up to the abandoned property with the cute red car, examine the old rickety fence and leaning ‘Keep Out’ sign, and marvel at the beautiful trees. Step into the highly detailed mountain pass as you approach the cave threshold. And once you enter, who knows what you’ll find…

To see inside, easily remove the tops of the cave to explore all the possibilities. Constructed using an 8×8 modular system, you can build your own exciting details–even traps! In the examples included, you’ll find a giant spider web, hidden treasure, cave formations, and crumbling rock (pull the pin to drop your minifigure into the rock). There are 12 total 8×8 sections–who knows what the adventurers could find!

Features:

  • Stylish red car
  • 3 unique minifigures
  • Leaning ‘Keep Out’ sign
  • Rickety fence with “broken” pickets
  • Colorful, natural elements
  • Highly detailed mountain pass
  • 12 8×8 modular sections

MOC: BrickTop PC

Scroll down for a chance to get your own FREE copy of this set!

Introducing the BrickTop PC, the latest masterpiece in Brickster_Tim’s popular NerdTech Series! Created solely as a LEGO Ideas project, this brick-built laptop is the sleekest, smoothest, and one of the most realistic laptops on the site. It is constructed with over 900 bricks, and is 23.6 studs x 33 1/6 studs x 9 1/6 bricks, and weighs only 1.46 lbs. The laptop’s hinges are built just right, so that there’s enough friction to keep the laptop closed or open, but not too much so that it’s easy to open, revealing the features inside. The fully customizable screen has plenty of space to build whatever images you want, the printed and custom-colored keys are actually pressable (via the incredibly clever use of rubber bands), the mousepad has two buttons and a scroll bar, there are two speakers, and 7 extra buttons toward the top. On the outside, you can place the included brick-built thumbdrive in the snap-in USB ports, or place your headphone connection in either of the headphone jacks.

The model is full of tricky techniques and building styles that could put any builder to the test. The most difficult part is suspending 33 rubber bands between tiny stud plates, hidden between the keyboard and the 8×16 tiles. Besides all of that, there’s quite an assortment of light and dark bluish gray parts, as well as the lettered and numbered 1×1 tiles. The set is perfect for display, honing building skills, and even playing with!

MOC: Forest Chapel

The beautiful Forest Chapel is from a bygone era of architecture, evidenced by the arches, windows, doors, faded gold bell and rope, worn pathways, vine-clad tower, and lanterns. The sturdy structure of the chapel has both a well-built, angled roof, and smooth walls. Under its removable roofs, it contains rows and rows of pews inside, pulpit, decorative cross with crown atop, doors, desk with chair and candle, and bookcase. Surrounding the building are pretty trees, fountain, chain fence with opening gate, and the tall tower topped with a stony cross. This is an example of ancient European history, when church buildings such as this were commonplace in villages and towns during the 16th and 17th centuries. If you are a LEGO fan, history expert, or a lover of ancient architecture, this is a creation for you.

MOC: 1955 Ford Fairlane Victoria

Cruise the streets with style in the highly-detailed, minifigure-scale 1955 Ford Fairlane Victoria! This old-fashioned classic from the 50’s was a member of Ford’s brand-new line of vehicles: the Fairlane models, produced to keep up with Chevrolet’s new and very popular Bel Air automobile. The Fairlane cars were the first Ford vehicles to feature optional seatbelts, factory-installed air conditioners, and panoramic windshields.

This brick-built version has everything a car lover could ask for: chrome bumpers and grille, opening doors, accurate color styling, smooth design from the front to the back, roomy interior with a steering wheel and gauges, and (coming soon) opening trunk. The complex building techniques employed in this model account for its near-perfect recreation of the original using 182 parts. The entire model is 17 studs long, 6 2/3 studs wide, and 4 bricks high.
