My own Lego creations ("MOCs") with instructions and background information.
60th Anniversary Models
Alternative Builds and Modifications
Models built only from old bricks:
TODO list of designs I still want to digitalize:
- Space Van
- Lava Sails (alt build)
- Satellite maintenance mission (mod build, just photos)
- Triple Enforcer BT
- The Shiv
- Biwak Pod
Fictive abstraction over realism
- Playable, functional, robust and can be moved conveniently
- Minifigure scale is preferred
- All designs are open for modification
- Greeble is an afterthought and does not compromise the above in favor of more visual appeal or detail
- Models for children, lore for adults
- Focus on core idea or moving, functional parts first (e.g. cockpit, hatches, engine)!
- Flesh out raw form!
- Improve sturdiness!
All models are digitalized using BrickLink Studio.
Make sure to save regularly, since the software sometimes crashes under wine when making instructions!
