Mercedes-Benz SLR Mclaren 722 Edition by Alexander Paschoaletto

LEGO fan and MOCpages user Alexander Paschoaletto who is known for his great brick-built car models shared this beautiful Mercedes-Benz model in his page. The car is smaller than the Technic scale cars and larger than the usual creator size cars. It is approximately at the same scale with the official Ferrari F40 set and the builder used the windshield piece from that set. The detailing both for interior and exterior is amazing. There are lots of features on this car. The hood, the trunk and the doors can be opened. Even the seats are adjustable. I also liked that the Mercedes-Benz sign in front of the car was made with a steering wheel piece instead of a sticker. The look of the car is very detailed and resembles the real car very much with all the signature textures and curvature.

Futuristic Military Aircraft: Bell V-35


This futuristic military aircraft model, Bell V-35 is shared by LEGO fan and flick.com user Sunder_59 in his photo-stream. I like the overall design and the color blocking on this vehicle. Actually this is a very high quality computer render picture rather than not a physical model but it deserved to be blogged with his impressive design. You can find the original 3d model of the vehicle in this mecabricks page. Custom figures with camo uniforms fits the vehicle very well. Rotating engines/propellers and the cockpit are the most beautiful sections in my opinion.

LEGO fan and flickr.com user d' Qiu Brick a.k.a. dennis qiu who was recently blogged here with his Transforming Sci-Fi Fighter Plane: Terror R-17 built amazing alien creatures called Zerg from famous PC game Star Craft. The details of the alien monsters are incredible and resembles the models from the game very much. I especially like the Zergling. It's face looks really scary with all those teeth and red eyes. Zerg devourer in the photo below has also a nice and accurate shape and the vibrant color choice for the wings and the body fits the MOC very well. The terrain underneath the creatures were also built beautifully matching the details from the game including crystals and skeletons.

This weeks guest of honor is a very talented TFOL from USA, John Snyder a.k.a. jsnyder002. His impressive MOC's were blogged many times in various blogs around the net including tilesorstuds. He is well known for his great historical vignettes but his Sci-fi creations are amazing as well. Photos from the work of our guest will be presented between the questions.

John: Well, I definitely don't consider myself one of the best MOC'ers; there are lots of builders more talented than I. I'm a TFOL from the USA and work part time on a dairy farm, though my main occupation right now is school. My main activity besides building with LEGO, is playing soccer (football for all of you outside the US), either in a local league or just for fun.




K: Do you remember your first day when you get your first LEGO set?

J: I don't really remember the first set, as all my siblings had LEGO growing up, so it was always around me. But the first set that I recall getting is 7236.

The base was also built nicely with the stone statues etc.

Sorry for the long wait bu here we are with another interview. Talented creator, SungWan Kim from South Korea is this weeks guest of honor. You know him and his team with the username OliveSeon from flickr.com. He and his team were known for huge dioramas built using both official LEGO sets and incredible MOC's.

SungWan Kim: Hello, my name is SungWan Kim from South Korea and I am 42 years old. :-) Honestly, I don't think we are one of the best LEGO MOC'ersThere are many awesome creators than us in the world. I guess the strong point of our works is that our MOCs are in harmony with other lego official sets in a diorama.

I have organized the team named as OliveSeon (or hobbyinside) with two good creators for our creation works in 2008. All my fellows are members of brickinside LUG which I have founded by myself. With their helps, it seems like the quality of our MOCs is maintained above average.



K: Do you remember the day when you got your first LEGO set? Which set was it? And How old were you when you started playing with LEGO bricks?

S: Yes, of course. It was lego technic 8448. I used to play with lego sets owned by my friend at his house in my childhood. Actually what I have firstly owned is a technic 8448, when I was 26 years old.

In addition to his building talent, the builders photography and photo-editing skills are also incredible. The golden ornaments in front of the building were built nicely. Usage of air-baloon pieces for building the cannon is also a good idea.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/tromas/27916647301/in/contacts/

LEGO fan and flickr.com user .Tromas who was blogged multible times in our blog with his outstanding space ships like "Draygon" and "Novafire", shared this great MOC, Koensayr YT-T3 Invader in his photo-stream. The shaping of the ship obviously resembles the Y-Wing from Star Wars but this one has a different tactical function than the original. As you may now the original Y-wings serve as bomber and heavy fighters in the Star Wars universe but this ships primary role is troop transport. The top of the back-section could be removed to revealed the interior which I like very much. With the smooth shaping of the hull and with the design of the engines this ship is very impressive in my opinion.
