Rebel Assault Frigate by Carter Witz


When we see micro-scale capital ship models from Star Wars universe, they are often modeled after imperial ships. This one is a great exception. This greatly shaped micro-scale Rebel Assault Frigate was recently shared by talented builder and flickr.com user Carter Witz in his photo-stream. Check out the original vehicle to see how accurate the MOC actually is. I really like the greebling in the middle and the addition of star fighters.

1968 Dodge Charger R/T by Firas Abu-Jaber


These awesome Dodge Charger model vehicles were recently shared by flickr.com user and LEGO fan Firas Abu-Jaber who is known by and multiple times blogged with his amazing car MOC's. The shaping and details are beautifully accurate to the real cars. Chrome details add extra flavour to the look too. I especially liked the exposed engine details.

Special Interview with Beat Felber aka Engineering with ABS


After a long break, we continue our series of Special Interviews starting with a very talented model builder. This weeks guest of honor is Beat Felber a.k.a. Engineering with ABS from Switzerland. He is known for his amazing realistic and huge vehicle model MOC's. Photos from the work of our guest will be presented between the questions but you should check the builders Flickr photo-stream for tons of amazing creations


Kaplan: We already know you are one of the best LEGO MOC'ers in the world. What can you tell us about yourself other than that?

Beat: First of all I would like to thank you for the opportunity to share some of my thoughts with other LEGO fans out there. Rather than being a top MOC'er, I consider myself to be an avid scale modeller. My name is Beat Felber and I live in the northernmost part of Switzerland, close to the border with Germany. I am aged 40 and work as an engineer at an electric power plant.When not building LEGO models, I tinker with and drive a 1984 Land Rover 110, do some photography and I am also a firefighter with the local volunteer fire department. Back in 2001 I decided to share my LEGO creations with other like-minded people on the internet. It was the birth of my homepage www.engineeringwithabs.ch. I called this site Engineering with ABS because I thought it describes what I am doing: building models of technical stuff using LEGO bricks made of Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS). In the meantime, I switched over to Flickr. The original homepage is still online but not maintained any more.





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?

B: The first sets must have been Duplo sets. Of course, I don’t remember them exactly any more. But I do have fond memories of my very first Technic Set: Technic Universal Building Set 8030. I got it as a gift from my late granddad when he was celebrating his 60th birthday. I just turned four years old that day! My first City set was the Shell ServiceStation 377.



Y-wing Evolved by Ted Andes


This great modified version of the Y-Wing star fighter from Star Wars was recently shared by flickr.com user and talented LEGO fan Ted Andes. I personally not a big fan of original Y-wing design because of the exposed mechanical parts etc. but this version is absolutely beautiful. Studless design combined with incredible color-blocking and smooth cockpit design makes this creation great. I like the use of X-wing wind-shield piece too. Check out the builders photo-stream for many great MOC's from different themes.

Cube-Robo, a LEGO transform mech


Talented LEGO builder and flickr.com user LEGO DOU Moko whose creations were blogged in here multiple times before has recently shared another amazing creation. I personelly like the transformer style LEGO robot MOC's and the builder did a really great job on this. Clever use of different tile shapes including the triangular one on outside of the cube enables the the builder to give he robot a great posture. It can be said that the introduction of the small ball joint piece several years ago made these kind of aestehic robotic creations possible yet its still quite a challenge to create such beautiful MOC's. The builder also shared a lot of detail photos of this creation in his blog as well.

A-10 Asimov, An amazingly shaped Starship MOC


We do not often blog gdigital creations, and when we do we try to share extraordinary good designs. This one is absolutely one of them. The shaping and detailing of the vehichle is really amazing. Some of the pieces are non-production colors in my knowledge, other than that small detail this MOC is flawless. I especially like the piping details and incredibly detailed engine design as well as the color blocking on the stripes. The builder, noblebun is a very talented Ship designer and his flickr.com photostream is full with great MOC's.

Terex 33-19 Titan by Beat Felber


This amazing and huge mining truck MOC was recently sahred by talented LEGO model builder and flickr.com user Beat Felber in his photo-stream. The builder has shared a lot of amazing construction and industrial machinery in the past. So this truck is only one of them. The design of the vehichle is incredibly accurate to the real vehicle in terms of both shaping and coloring as well. The truck is not only aethetically perfect its also full with power-functions as well. According to the description the tires used are non LEGO 120 mm tires that fit 1.9 inch rims. So seeing this much awesomeness, be sure to check out the builders other MOC's in his photo-stream.

Father Frost: Kinetic Sculpture


This wonderful kinetic sculpture, named Father Frost was recently shared by talented LEGO builder and flickr.com user vir-a-cocha. If you are interested in building kinetic sculptures like this one you may want to check out this digital model of the function mechanism of this MOC. The builder also shared a youtube video featuring the movement action of the scupture.

Aurora Train from Metro Exodus by Hasan Kabalak


We don't blog digital creation very often in this blog but when we do we select the best ones to share with the readers. This wonderful and huge creation is a model train named Aurora from the game Metro Exodus. This MOC was created by talented builder Hasan Kabalak who is also the creator of the great Golf Mk1 GTI model in LEGO Ideas, which was reached the necessary numbers in first stages in Ideas incredibly fast but not selected by LEGO at the final stage. The MOC contains increadible amount of details both in the interior and exterior as well. The MOC also contains lots of the characters from the game. I haven't played the game myself but checking out the game photos from the internet the characters also portrayed in LEGO form as close as they could. I lşke the use of the new Star piece in front section. The builder also made custom rails as the basic LEGO rails are not suitable for a monster train. I also liked the extra details like the containers, boxes, wooden supports etc around the vehicle as well.

Happy Lunar New Year!

This wonderful diorama celebrating the Chinese new year was recently shared by flickr.com user and LEGO fan Galaktek in his photostream. Different style big puppets from LEGO are combined in this diorama greatly. The Gate itself is also designed very nicely decorated with various pearl gold details. Additional buildings on the sides are also nice addition to the MOC. Together with the minifigures and street-line printed baseplate in the middle everything in this creation is how it is supposed to be in a real life new year celebration.

Kraggship by Scott Wilhelm


This spaceship MOC was recently shared by talented builder and flickr.com user Scott Wilhelm in his photo-stream. The builder made a detailed description about the shape and story about this unusual space vessel underneath the picture in flickr. The texturing and details on the top section are looking really cool. The organic look of this vessel is really uncommon among the micro-scale ships.

The Painted City


This awesome MOC was recently shared by flickr.com user and LEGO by Grant Davis. According to description this creation is a collaborative MOC built by three builders Grant Davis. Eli Willsea and Micah Biedemen. The Color combinations and irregular building techniques together with amazing textures on buildings makes this MOC amazing.
