  1. Thank you very much.. I like to make different stuff just to see whats possible with alternative mediums.
  2. Its been a while since I build a car, and posted it here, but something new is ready, so I thought I share it. This time it's a Duesenberg, once more fully made out of genuine LEGO bricks. My LEGO model is based on the SJ type Dual Cowl Pheaton, by LaGrande from 1935. It is a one-off build in scale 1:8.5 (derived from the availlable wheel size that fitted this built), and consists of roughly 5000 parts. I have put in a lot of detail, like the engine (it was always painted green in a Duesenberg as far as I know), and added some retro-chromed parts as well. These parts have been industrially pla
  3. Recently I have built a few custom Harley Davidsons and a Cadillac lowrider, all in bigger 1/10 scale. My latest addition in this scale is this 1932 Ford Tudor Hot Rod. Completely built out of genuine Lego; It has suspension, steering, engine wiring and hosing, and a lot of retro-chromed parts and a few custom stickers as well. The model also has working doors, full interior and fully detailed chassis. Hope you like it!
  4. Hi all, Some on this forum might know me as the guy with the Lego stuff from The Netherlands. Scale modeling with Lego has been a hobby for me for many years (besides the many Revell and Italeri kits I have done as well), and a while ago I was approached by American publisher Nostarch to make a photobook coffeetable style around the theme. I did this with a friend of mine and being something fresh and maybe out of the box I would like to share it with you. The book is called 'The Art of Lego Scale Modeling' and it shows that Lego can be a serious scale modeling medium. We contacted 20 builders
  5. Thnx all! In a few weeks my first book on true Lego scale modeling will be released worldwide. People who are curious to what extreme level things can be modeled withLego might like it. It will be cool 200 page full color and hardcover coffeetable piece. https://www.nostarch.com/legoscalemodeling
  6. Thnx a lot all. Here are some fresh shots (including ghostviews):
  7. Thnx! Glad that regular scale builders like it as well!
  8. @ Ryan: It takes about 3 months to do a thing like this. I try to put in as much detail as possible, so the research takes some time as well. @Lunajammer: You might not believe it, but I am not a Lego freak as such. I never buy sets. I just like modelbuilding and with Lego it works best for me. Nowadays I have the proper contacts to get the parts I need, and that helps a lot.
  9. Hi modeling friends, Haven't posted in a while but just dropped a Cadillac lowrider in the cars forum, and want to share this bike with you: I have a big passion for customized trucks, cars and bikes. I especially love the Harly Davidson Cali style lowriders, as featured by this model because of the awesome colors and extreme customation. This Harley Davidson Road King,scaled 1:10 is built out of genuine LEGO bricks, in sand and dark green rare colors. Many parts were industrially chromed (plating on plastics), or gold spray painted. Hope you like it!
  10. It has been a while since I have build something, and posted it here. After some motorcycles and trucks, it was time to build a car, which I do rarely. Not that I don't like cars, on the contrary...I love em, especially the heavily customized ones. A tricked out Cadillac Fleetwood Le Cabriolet lowrider in 1/10 scale had been on my wishlist for a while. As some of you who know my work from the truck and bike sections might recall: I build with Lego bricks. Not that I am a particular Lego freak as such, but I just like the stuff to build something unique. Out of the box thinking instead of out o
  11. Well, I can do that. At the moment I am updating a few of my models for the 2014 events. I attend a small mix of the bigger modelbuilding events and Legoshows in Europe. These models (most of them can be found on this forum as well) are existing ones that just get a small revamp, but after that there is new work scheduled, and I can take some WIP pictures along. There are no building instruction, I use refference material from internet only, and brochures from manufacturers, but you could get a nice impression from the bricks used during the WIP. ooh.. yes the cat... well he's quite fond
  12. Thnx all, and chukyr... I thought about some options, but i bought a package of rabbit food, and pressed the bales myself :-)
