Henrik Hoexbroe has created a lovely diorama of a French town – Royville – in the 1960s. It features – among others – an art-deco style petrol station, a Citroën car dealer, a hotel, and a train station. It’s very much ‘alive’ because of the many little scenes and Henrik’s brilliant car MOCs.
Eurobricks Fellow, alex54 is back to share with us on his latest creations and this time, he is inspired to create a Rockland Bus of its own. However, this minibus is not meant to ferry Rock Stars but is mainly used as one of the affordable mode of transports to travel together with your friends during the long summer vacation with a sense of fun and adventure.
Here comes the minibus and the hunks and babe are ready for their holiday trip at the sunny beach, but where is everyone? It appears the beach is deserted and it is not going to stop the trio from enjoying themselves in this secluded beach.
We have arrived
This year, our Eurobricks member, 74louloute dreams of going for such wild vacation.
lcon21 builds this 6-wide coach that – in my humble opinion – fits in much better with the official City theme than many of its bigger MOC counterparts. So, people, make sure your luggage is in the storage compartment, climb on board, and take your seats, so the bus driver can fire up the engine. Bus driver, move… that… bus!
That’s the question that TheBrickster asks in the Eurobricks Town Forum. It seems like townies TheBrickster (Trains) and MetroiD (motorcycles) have already made up their minds. But… how do you prefer to travel? What Lego MOCs or sets to you prefer?
Ralph S (madphysicist on flickr) shares his insights into minfig-scale vehicle building in an interesting article in the Eurobricks Town forum. Whether you’re building a truck, bus, van or pickup or you’re just trying to make your own (or your dad’s) car suitable for a minifig, Ralph has some useful tips on choosing the appropriate scale. Don’t feel bound to 4- and 6-wide vehicles and make sure you don’t fit all your vehicles with the same size wheels. Head over to the Town forum and use this unique opportunity to share your thoughts on minifig-scale vehicle building or pose questions to experienced builders.
To create smooth transportation in Eurobricks member, Nexus7 town, he decided to design a public transport bus that is similar to the Polish Jelcz 043 bus which was developed in the mid 1960s and many different variations came along as we progressed. This 8-wide bus has a white top with red finishing by the side. You might want to note that it even include a trailer at the end.
What sort of amazing combination will you possibly get when you placed Eurobricks MOC Expert, Ralph S together with London Routemaster Bus? The results? You are likely to see a magical City expansion in his British High Street tabletop display.
Brickshelf member, maciejer has once again designed another ingenious public bus and this time it is a Bus 44 creation. Check out the opening mechanism of the rooftop as it allows the builder to place the passengers easily inside. With the rapid expansion of public transportation, it’s not unusual that town builders are building towards this trend!
Summer may be officially over, but that doesn’t prevent LEGO fan Marisa from enjoying some sun and surf with this neat little beach scene and yellow Volkswagen Van. What a great little bus! It would be nice to see LEGO offer a set like this, especially the bus as part of a collection of classic automobiles.
