Another day, another microscale build. This time it’s Golden Gate by Lisqr. Like often with microscale there is creative use of parts – this time sausage in the role of ropes holding up construction of the bridge.
I like microscale, i can’t deny,
I like microscale, i cannot lie.
It is no difference with this Grantmaster’s little backyard scene. There is so much detail with so little pieces. The tree, the swing and the lawn mover are works of NPU art. Well, those green hairs were used as foliage before, but not in this way.
Everybody and their dog are writing about new set LEGO has announced today. I will not do that, instead i want to present to you microscale version of it built by Rod Gillies
It is cute, isn’t it? And pretty true version of LEGO 71040 Disney Castle.
It seems it is superheroes week. We have posted some great superhero MOCs already, but this time it is time for a microscale. This version of Harley Quinn by Grantmasters is not much smaller than minifig, but it has some interesting NPUs and has definetely better body shapes than minifigs.
This is one of those MOCs that proves that you do not need a ton of bricks to make something absolutely amazing!
Seems this week is microscale week, so many cool micro builds were posted on the net. One of them is Simon Liu‘s scene where micro AT-ST are guarding some bunker.
Those walker are one of the smallest i have seen, yet they are extremely detailed. That is not first time Simon shows his building skills, and i’m sure there is more to come.
And no. This is not the scene from Empire Strikes back, that would have more green in it. This is Star Wars Battlefront build.
Microscale is something i like to both build and watch. No wonder that this castle by Aido K has drawn my attention. It is not only very beautiful but also historically accurate. This siege of Dover Castle is not the first historical work of Aido, take a look at this map depicting political situation in South East England 1216.
What is interesting about this build is unusual use of baseplate and snot map. In both cases there is a lot of brick stacking – technique where parts are not really connected, just stacked one on another. It works well on a photo, but is a paint to take those models to exhibitions, because even weak shakes of the table can rearrange the setup 🙂 Neverthless i cant stop starring at them both.
GARC by Blake Foster is a perfect example how adding some stickers can bring a lot of details to the model. Without those orange stripes and other ornaments, this model would not look as awesome. On a model that scale it wouldnt be possible to add so much depth and texture.
I feel inspired to try more stickers in my works. Thanks Blake!
