Austerlitz Palace

A post from our co-blogger, Krzysztof:

Welcome everyone.

Not so far ago, LUGPol - Kris Kelvin, made a monumental MOC. It's made of 4792 bricks and looks like an Exclusive set.

And, behold, this is it:

What can I say... It's simply great. ;-) Like CCC tenements, this construction also consists of three segments. I like flowers in national France colours, the building's elevation and the gate with the arch. The fence is also beautiful.

More photos in Kris Kelvin's gallery are here.

Lego Castle 2010 - Kingdoms!

Kris Abel's blog gave us good quality photos of new Castle subtheme for year 2010 - it has to be called Kingdoms. There aren't many new parts (from what I see), but minifigs enchanted me. Well, why I'm telling you this, take a look at photos:

I like the castle, this wooden tower and impulses. What do you like the most?

Rolls-Royce Phantom II


Brickshelf user, carl, builded a model of Rolls-Royce Phantom II in minifig scale:

MOC has got a chassis builded with SNOT:

More photos in the gallery.

Please compare it with a real car:

When it comes to similarity to original, I can't stick to anything. When it comes to accomplishment, I don't like mirrors, which are painted with some kind of silver marker. :/ Although other chrome elements (mainly from ChromeBricks) are used good, like wheels and mask elements.

This vehicle is surely would be a good addiction to some elegant town. I also recommend other carl's MOCs, (mainly virtual, but although they look good).

Finally we have photos of 10211 Grand Emporium!

Late, but never mind. :P

I'm sorry I post so rarely, but winter is a period of intensive work. :) I promise I'll post more often next days (at least one post a week).

Anyway I present you a set 10211 Grand Emporium (photos from The Brothers Brick):

There are few new parts and few parts not seen in sets for a while. Tiles 1x3, DarkGreen windows, awnings above the display windows, bowls next to the entrance, DarkBlue, short minifig legs, saleswoman's torso, parts of cornice at the roof and probably some more belong to that first group. A ribbon at the present, curved railings, old flower (this grey ornament at the second floor), regular letter (not this like in Green Grocer), "rounded" glasses, which have appeared only in Belville so far (they can be seen in a window at first floor) and a tan baseplate. I also probably missed a few. :)

I will write a part of the description soon, when there will be more photos. :)
