Blake Baer's Hurricane Irene MOC
Blake has captured a lot of movement in the the trees and the waves. This is an excellent snapshot of a dynamic scene. Check out more pictures and join in the discussion on Eurobricks.
Eurobricks user SavaTheAggie brings us this simply gorgeous little scene consisting of the Texas State Railroad Locomotive #300 crossing a wooden trestle bridge through the Piney Woods of East Texas. There is tons of detail work to check out here from the amazing trestle bridge to the fantastic landscaping. And then there’s the steam engine which uses a steam piston design that I have not personally seen before. Head on over to the Eurobricks thread and check it out!
I’ll start this post by owning up. I’m going to blog a pirate MOC. Now that I have that out of the way, the reason is that I feel the techniques in this particular MOC are quite applicable to Town building and I know that some of our readers have expressed interest in seeing other themes featured here as well. So without further adieu, I give you Eurobricks user Derfel Cardarn’s ‘Renegade Redcoat Rum Runners‘ which also happens to be an entry for the ‘Pillage the Village 2‘ contest on Classic-Pirates.com!
This MOC has a lot of exciting detail including some absolutely fabulous landscaping work! I was really impressed with the use of 1×1 Round Plates to give some shape to the hillside. This is brilliant and really makes the rock hill look more organic and realistic. I just love the extra dimension it adds. This technique is used again in the walls of the ‘hideout’ which have a nice ‘stone’ look. Amongst the other great landscaping work, I’m also a big fan of the fence that lines the upper cliff face in front of the house. There really is so much to take in here that you’ll spend a lot of time pouring over each picture to appreciate all the finer details. Head on over to the Eurobricks thread for this MOC and let Derfel Cardarn know what you think!
