Dutch Bar & Family Apartment

This Dutch style building made by Barrie Crossan contains a bar on the ground floor and a two-bedroom family apartment on the upper floors. What I like the most besides the overall building and all the details is how Barrie use those Vehicle, Fairing 1 x 4 Side Flaring Intake with Two Pins for the cornice work around the top of the building. Such a beautiful and lovely building!

The Simpsons

There are a lot of build inspired by The Simpsons character which is till one of my favorite cartoon to this day and very suitable for kids…(see what I did there)…hahaha.

This interpretation by SuckMyBrick, who is a specialist in brick character took the character in a more chibi style which I think it gives a fresh breath of air to all the characters! Though all in this lineup are awesome, but what I love the most are Ned, Willie, and Apu that really standout from the rest. Such a great job here!

Stacked Vignette

I actually made this on February for Bhinneka LUG public display at Dunia Bricks 2016. Though it may be small compare to other LEGO con and exhibition around the world, but it’s the biggest LEGO public display in Indonesia which held annually every March.

This was intended as a community build for our local FOL (Fans of LEGO) who interested to join in. This was what we did on 2014 with 52 stacked vignette displayed.

Community Build: Stacking Vignette for Dunia Bricks 2014

 

For this 2016 year, the result was surprisingly beyond expectation with total of 96 stacked vignette on display which I contribute 8 of them.

Here is the guideline rules that I set for this year. It should be on 8×16 plate with 10 bricks height + 1 plate height on the top:

So if you like making vignette and collecting them on your shelves without taking too much space, hope this could inspires you in someway to make your own stacked vignette 🙂
