New Projects:

A wealthy home. This will take forever to finish!



I am also working on a town courthouse, but it's buried in some bin so publishing it will have to wait until i find the parts i need to finish it.





For Jay Wilson: The two sets we discussed:




As mentioned, i 'stole' the crowbars and added a shorter top stick to the jeep.



The new jet. You actually sent me working to prepare this for photography :-D I have added bombs & missiles in (sort of) matching color - and of course pilots!







Close up of the missiles and bombs. Those took a while to find all the parts for, i had to replace some of them with other parts on a couple of other builds.





The pilots alone. It took a while to find matching torsos that would look right as pilots. Eventually i found out i was so fortunate that i actually had two proper torsos in dark blue :-D

To clarify i use a Canon Powershot A490 - a 10 megapixel typical tourist camera. If i remember correctly, it cost me around 800 Danish Kroner, which is about 115$ at the current exchange rates. It was bought at a professional photographers shop though, so it would probably have been cheaper in stores comparable to Walmart here :-)

Quoting Jay Wilson Good idea about teaming up! OK, but my price for the camera is around 80$ Which should get maybe a nice kind, who knows. Thanks again for your help, your a great guy:)
It probably will get you a nice camera - i don't know if electronics such as cameras are cheaper in the US but they probably are :-) But the thing is that there is a difference between light balance, color, how well the camera digitizes the image and a host of other details in cameras of different makes (e.g. Canon vs Kodak). That means that if you mostly use it to take photos of your builds, you could end up in a situation where your current camera is just as good (or bad) as the new one. I tried that a couple of years ago with some non-descript cheap chinese camera :-( So when i bought a new one, i asked if i could test it first in the shop. They said yes and i took a photo at a couple of yards distance of a shelf in a not too bright area of the shop and used the camera's own photo viewer to zoom in and determine how well i could read small text on products on the shelf - and how bright the photo overall appeared. I tested a Canon first and was pleased, though my next choice would have been a Kodak. Due to price i tested the Canon first but given free choice i think i would still have chosen the Kodak though, since i was very pleased with the one i had before the chinese one :-D And thanks, i'm always happy to help :-)

Quoting Jay Wilson :) Ah yes, perfect find! I love missiles, I'm thinking about getting it much. But it will have to be next year:/ I'm getting a camera at Wal-mart after Oct. 6th cause it's my B-day:) And I get money from people, so then I could either get something or save it, but I need a camera so bad! And who knows I might ask for it from Christmas. :D
Well if you do wait, don't wait too long! Lego uses the formula of creating a need and a sense of urgency to sell more, so there is some risk the jet won't be available anymore a year after release :-/Perhaps you could tell those buying christmas presents for you to 'gang up', then you could receive fewer presents but bigger ones - like the jet :-D Sounds nice about the camera! If possible, you should take a test photo or two in the shop before deciding which model you choose. And if you need tips on photography - or building tips - don't hesitate to ask me or other builders on here, most are very willing to help :-)

Quoting Jay Wilson Hey Allan, thanks so much for this!:D The jet wouldn't be a jet with-out pilots, great find of the pilots:) Good idea with the missiles! I'm surely thinking about getting the blue jet:D Thanks so much! Talk to you later;D
You're welcome Jay! I figured those torsos would be great as pilots. I had to add missiles, even if it is more of a parade-jet :-D I would certainly recommend it if you like jet planes :-)

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 ha, ha, ha, it made me laugh a lot! racing trough the town band, and inside the nuclear facility, lol, cool ride in the forest too, adding to that and narration should be a killer! I can t wait to see the final version!
Thanks Frank, i am really glad that you like what i have so far. I'll keep in the ending then, but i still need some shots to explain their route to the plant, and why they went down a dead-end street in the first part. I have some vacation coming up some time soon (hopefully), and i'll make the rest of the shots and the narration then :-)

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 ahhh, ok, now I get it, xd, great plan, I can t wait to see your new episode, I m very intrigued to see those buildings in the storage bins, I don t think you ever showed them.
Then i'd better start putting my ideas together into a game-plan soon :-D I think you're right about the buildings, except the villa with white walls. That one is in my miscellaneous-folder as a very early build. Most of my other buildings are expanded set-ones, but i have a few more of my own design i'll include in the race :-)

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 I can totally reproduce the plant, I did well not to promise anything for the inside, as, I don t have the specialized red part with the window, have you changed Kirk s face? I had studied your pics before making ep #3, and it did nt seem to be that one.... I have all those bikes and figs, about the funny pic, the guy is reading radiation on the one with the suit? is that the joke? or do I miss something? in any case I m glad you showed the interior of the plant, as it rocks!
Oh, i forgot i changed kirk's face when i stored the bikes after the last race :-O I'll make sure i change it back before i shoot the next part. I need to find the right visor for his helmet again too :-) Cool about the plant, i'll leave it in the background for my ending shots then :-) And about the rad-scene.. I'm sorry, maybe fun wasn't the word i was looking for - i was thinking 'fun' as in "uh-oh, wouldn't wanna be him!" :-) I was planning to use it as a background scene for the race. The guy in the suit is picking up a waste barrel (by hand) that's leaking, while the other guy takes readings at a safe distance.

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 the city scene is great news! I m thrilled to discover those buildings! the nuclear plant must be seen clearly, and by many angles for me to replicate accurately, take a few pics of it to put on your work page if possible, don t disrupt your script of the story for it, for your storage, I have noticed you stacked your containers on top of each other, maybe a plastic rack system like mine could be a good solution, it s cheap, light, and you can use it for a working table or to shoot your scenes when you dismantle a part of it. [cyberjournal 11 check the park!]
Ok, i'll make some photos of the plant soon, i'll add those bikes too :-) I was already planning to use the plant in the race, but this way i can keep it in the story for longer and end my part with outside scenes involving it. Even better than what i was planning :-D The rack system might be a good idea, i'll look into it once i move. The move should also give me more space to set up photo sessions, allowing for more elaborate scenes in the future :-)

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 I don t understand why you build a desert... unless you d like to deliver the letter there... remember you have to go green, I see lots of houses and vehicles you could use in your part of the race in those stacks for a minimum effort and time, as for the plant, I might not be able to reproduce the interior, but, I could for the exterior, I have plenty of yellow and orange elements loose, you really have a lot of sorting on your hands in those bins, no wonder you re discouraged, I like the little forest you made, and interesting bits of infos too, I guess you intend on using it in your part, it will look great, you know, at one point I considered to replicate the exterior of your beautiful villa in my part, xd, but, I was short on time, I can t wait to see your next part now!
Thanks! The desert is a long-standing backdrop for my various desert camo-vehicles, so i always rebuild it if i have had to scavenge parts from it to complete the vehicles. I wasn't planning on using it for the race :-) I actually was planning to go through the bins for builds to use this time around, perhaps for a small town setup before the forest part. If you can replicate the nuke plant exterior, i could end my part of the race with it and the forest bit as backdrop? Then i would just need to think up something for my starter-scene.. Oh, and yep the bin-sorting needed is sometimes discouraging. I am hoping to solve that soon though, if i can find the right place to move to :-)

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 wow! that house is superb! it deserves a post on it s own, the reactor is pretty cool, I don t think anybody did one before, the tanks, well, you really know how to crank em! I d love to see some in the challenge though.
Thanks :-) It most certainly will get one on it's own, i just need to finish two-three rooms before i post it. About the plant: Not a dedicated nuclear power plant, i think so too. I have seen several nuclear-powered buildings and other facilities though, and even a lone Fukushima micro-scale build. About the tanks: Thanks, i think the T-80 needs a bit of work before final posting though :-)

Ok, i'll be patient then :-) The MOCpages problems explain why i haven't received any notifications of comments :-/ I'm glad you like the test race, looking forward to seeing your version of it. And which 'kenny' you choose (and how you choose to dispose of him) :-D I have 2-3 of each of the four basic roadplates (turn, T, intersection and straight road) and they're not in use, so we can extend the course as needed - as long as the desert part is no larger than it is now :-)

Ok :-) I would suggest the red bike for your contestant then, the colors almost match. The faces.. Hmm i am considering the 2nd one on the right but i think i'll end up with the far left one. The other one would make Oppie too old :-D Is there a chance you could match the red fig or that we could find a third fig to add? I was thinking it would be nice to have some Non-Player Characters in the race too. As cannon-fodder perhaps :-D

I m quite sure I have this face, if you could post your faces like my work page, [baseplate heads] it would help in the future.
I'll look into posting a head-plate (haha!), but i only have 6-8 faces left and several are duplicates. All the other faces i have are in use in my various builds :-)
