Chateau Saint Bernard

Well, I just remembered that I haven't posted anything for a few days, so I quickly scanned through some Brickshelf folders, hoping to find something worth posting. Sure enough, up popped this neat little chateau with SNOT battlements, made by Emmanuel Bernard. Check it out!





I would sure like to know how the Forestmen got across the moat for this picture. ;)

Amoskeag Motorized Fire Truck

Here is Count Blockula's turn-of-the-century fire truck. It has loads of nifty SNOT, and a few other unique techniques as well. Does anyone know what the ribbed piece that forms the upper part of the water tank is?

Animals by Reed Anderson

Reed Anderson's animal gallery is full to the brim with great building techniques (and great animals, too!).




His birds make great use of the minifig head rag usually seen on pirates.




His dragonfly is made out of feather parts and a skeleton hand.




And his elk puts droid arms and minifig hands to good use.

Also check out the rest of his gallery for more cool animals!

Small Plane

Take a little peekeroo at this small fighter plane.


Some things I noticed:
  • SNOT construction-almost everything in front of the wings is oriented the studs front. There is also some SNOT under the wings.

  • The Technic connectors used for the loooooong nose piece.

    Guppie

    LUGNET user Elroy Davis's Guppie makes great use of a seemingly "useless" Alpha Team part.



    Net Illumination

    Brickshelf user ezehogan has built a Black Falcon Keep. The keep is well constructed, but the thing that caught my eye was the SNOT chandelier made from the firefighters catching net and a large flower.

    Goats Galore

    Jens and Jojo have created two cute little goats. Both of them make use of the new Viking horns, new small slopes, and control sticks. Jens also puts some minifig binoculars to good use.
