Hornreach Keep, an amazing castle MOC collaboration.


This amazing castle MOC was built as a collaboration of flickr.com user and LEGO fans Ben Cossy and Eli a.k.a. É.Ɓ. for Brickvention 2017. The detailing on the wall is done greatly and there is also lots of impressive rock formations and vegetation on the diorama as well. Two shades of bluish-gray gives the wall a nice look together with black colored roof on top of the towers. There is also a small town inside the walls where you can see a lot of small interesting details. 


The smoke out of chimney is built using white snake pieces which is something I haven't seen before. I also like how the pavement around the tree was done. The 1x1 tile pieces are not fully stacked to the ground which makes it look more realistic for a historical scene. The river that flows through the village and the outer wall is also a great addition to the creation as well. Inside the keep there is also a hall full of figures and details as well. Check out Eli's photo-stream for more photos.

Doof Wagon from Mad Max Fury Road


LEGO fan and flickr.com user speedyhead a.k.a. speedyhead79 recently shared this awesome Doof Wagon as it was seen in Mad Max Fury Road which is really great post-apocalyptic movie. The vehicle is very accurate to the vehicle in the movie as you can see the here. The acoustic equipment and detailing on the vehicle are really impressive. I also like the texture of the desert ground which is simply built using small sized plates and tan colored bushes. 

Standing in the Sea by Sergeant Chipmunk

LEGO Fan and flickr.com member 'Sergeant Chipmunk' created a very neat MOC named Standing in the Sea with three colorful watchtowers. Designer use very special technique to create column of the towers with using plates. His rocky grounds and water effect is also brillant. I really liked shades of the blue to white. Transparent 1x2 tiles used successfully. Also brick built ship has unique sail technique. 

Porsche 911 RSR by Malte Dorowski


This amazingly realistic Porsche 911 RSR model was recently shared by flickr.com user Malte Dorowski who is well known for his great car models and for his  Porsche 911 GT3 Ideas Project. The shaping of the car is really impressive. I also liked the red+gray brick-built trim lines. The doors could be opened and there is also a fully detailed interior as well. The air-intake on the front and angles of the upper body are my other favourite sections. 


I think the back of a Porsche 911 RSR couldn't be built better for this scale.  the curvature achieved on top of the car is amazing as well.
