Your first 50....

So, what was your first creation to reach 50 likes, and when? For me, it was my USS Enterprise, CVN-80, back in early August.

Mine was "The Ecosse" back in March or April. The funny thing was that I posted it and MP went down for a week. When it came back up, my moc was down in the "fire truck" pages. That was before I was in any groups. I joined some groups, posted it there, and then MP went down again. Oh well.

Man, what a rough ride! The day I posted my carrier, Sariel came out of hiding, and posted his Helicarrier. I was surprised I got any comments that day :-0

Mine was my first episode Island Locked II, the sequel to my first series on MOCpages. I worked really hard, then posted it. I checked it again a day later and it only had 14 likes. I was so disappointed. So I joined like 11 groups and added them their and commented on every MOC on the homepage, and eventually it got to 55 =)

Nice! I find interesting that it takes a while for people to get up to fifty, but once they get there, the likes get sky high!

That may be the case for most, but I quit MOCpages for a while. I joined back recently, none have gotten over 20 since I joined back =/

My first MOC to get to 50 was Castle Dalradae, I'm still quite proud of it.

One of my first was my Rohan Sword, and I am very proud of it! Although, I have built a better version of a sword, the Sword of the Spirit.

Mine is the Flying Tank/Mi-54 Oleni. It is still on the homepage. I never thought it would make it this far. Also, it was blogged by TBB, my second to be blogged.
The first was my Grasshopper mech, a mech that looks like a grasshopper. Yeah xD I think if I post that here, it will just as popular as the Oleni.

My first 50+ model was the 4-wide VW T1 Camper: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/329631

It reached the 50+ last winter and it's still one of my personal favourites, too.

My first 50 was also my first 100, my Saleen S7. I don't actually even like it that much anymore, it looks very rough now.

My first was Weathertop. It was on the most discussed for quite a while, made it to the top three on my page, and then grew from there. I still like it, and it was tons of fun to build!

My first (and only) 50 was for the 2013 MocAthalon, No Gravity. No others of my MOCs have come close. :P I hope to change that for the M.O. R2. I'm actually going to try to spend a few hours each day and make an impressive MOC.

Same here. Mine is still together but it's so large that just going to take better pictures is quite the task. I've actually planned to disassemble it and "rebuild" the rooms to start a story. I've already got about 10 episodes roughed together. No idea when it will happen though. But I will get better pictures before it's decommissioned.

Actually, the cool part is that I told the story to my wife and she thought it would make a great novel. Hope to do both and share it in Lego with everyone here.

My first 50 was a spaceman falling out of an airlock. It was a shockingly simple build. It think that it became popular because it was a competition entry and so a more varied audience got to see it. It was also a novel take on the competition theme and pushed the rules a bit. This caused some controvesy and discussion, which attracted more views and likes. Lastly it had an eye catching title: In Classic Space No One Can Hear You Scream.

My first 50 was my BrickBattle Games entry, my Defenses at the Gates of Bendrick. I am very proud of it and seriously wasn't expecting so many people to like it, even though it's definitely one of the best I've ever built. It got to 50 on 10-9-13, I was so happy!

I think it was my ICBM launch vehicle.. It made 50+ relatively fast - within a week or so - but i think that has to do with it being the biggest of it's kind on the pages at the time.

The two other ones that made 50+ did so much more slowly.. And i currently have a build that has been posted for about a year and is stuck at 47 likes :-D

I hit 50 about 30 hours after I posted my build. It was a castle my friend Eli and I built for Brickcon 2013, we wound up getting "best castle building" there and posted it afterwards. Glad to finally join the ranks here :D

woke up this morning to find my rendered stratos at 50....odd, as the normal MOC (exactly the same, just normal LDD screen shots) only fetched 12 likes. rendering makes a bigger difference than i thought...

Took about 6 months but my Self-Moc X finally reached 50 likes, making him my first 50.

My first 50 was my Pershing, which is my best LDD model so far. It reached 50 likes in around 3 days, which was pretty extreme (all the emails!) The 50+ that I like the most is my Aquanaut Barracuda, which is my most perfect RL creation to date. My Tiny Roller is also getting dangerously close to fifty, which I never intended to happen, but I guess it is really creative.
All in all, it's an honour to finally be here!

Hey guys, glad to be here! I actually don't remember which one was my first 50. My World Financial Center shot up there in about two days after posting in May 2012, but my World Trade Center has slowly gained likes since posting it in 2010.

My first (and only) 50+ is my giant convair B-36. I checked to see who liked it, and it appears that many people who do not have MOCpages accounts rated five stars. It took a long time to reach this; it was not an instant hit (and I would say it is still not a hit :) I added it in March? and it only became a 50+ creation in late May. Well, I finally have a 50+ after five months on MOCpages!

Took me about two months! My only 50+ has about twice as many likes as my next most popular MOC (my Bf-109, which I am actually pretty proud of) and only a handful of my other MOCs have over 20 likes. Most of my others are stuck at like twelve and some little ones that I posted while just screwing around with my part collection have only four or five.
