About this creation
2014 MOCathalon!

Team BrickLock

Category: Pair dare: Select two specific kinds of pieces (for example: the 1x2 brick and the jumper-plate) and then create a MOC using ONLY those two specific parts. Feel free to use multiple colors of those bricks but they must be ONLY those two bricks. Choose wisely!

Pieces: 1x1 brick w. 4 studded sides and cheese slope.

This was a bit of a stroke of genius for me. When trying to do this category I was playing around with a bunch of the 1x1 bricks with the studs (aka 'daleks') and I found that when sticking a bunch of then together I could create a branching network to create pretty much any kind of structure I wanted, (but weak admittedly). I also had a bunch of un-used cheese slopes in that olive green clor and one thing led to another and I ended up with a pine tree.



[Here a couple of pictures of an early design of the internal structure]





[The underneath gives you a good idea of how it`s built.]



At some points when building it I thought it might look a bit too orderly and un-natural, but I managed to stretch the limits of the system and come up with this.

That`s all, and I hope you guys liked it. BRICK OUT!

A very creative & alternative approach! The tree looks great - too bad it's so part-consuming, though:-)

Excellent. I bet a forest of your pine tree would make a great Moc too.

I see why you wanted the category... this is a whole margin better than anything I could have come up with. I have a tip for you though: Use the curves tool on this website: http://pixlr.com/editor/ (under "Adjustment") to balance out the white background. It will make your presentation a bit better. Again, great job on this!

Quoting Chris Phipson Someone's been to the PAB wall I see... Was gonna go with a strong three for the build but after thinking about it a bit, the use of those 1x1s was really a stroke of genius! Score of 4. ~ Chris.
