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: 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.
