A Cross and a Moon

Classic-Castler wunztwice has put two interested parts to good use. Check out the use of this part as a Christian crusifix, and a minifig wrench as an Islamic moon.

Green Antique Truck

Wunztwice built this beefy antique truck. Notice especially the mirrors, the back bumper, and the suspension for the rear wheels.

Oh, and by the way, this truck is way to nice for Joe Vig. ;)

The Stadoerfla Station

I checked Brickshelf for the first time since last fall (school has been voraciously gobbling up my time since) and what did I find on the front page but this wonderful, SNOT-crazy Stadoerfla Station!

The first thing that I noticed was the slanted timbers, created with tiles and 75 degree slopes. Nifty, huh? Also notice the SNOT doors, corners, and other decorations (such as the ones around the window) in the same picture; and check out the roof support and edge created with brown hinges. How did they attach the slanted beam to the wall?

A ramp of radar panels

Linus Bohman's Space-Ninja vignette includes a clever ramp made out of these parts.

Special thanks to Dunechaser for bringing this vig to my attention, and another thanks to Nathan "Sly Pig" Cunningham for indentifying the mystery piece (I sure couldn't figure it out).

Brickshelf user izzo's Bone Suit is a neat little powersuit, and it's use of the prefab pirate skull piece is quite cool.

Yes. Bionicle parts do have their uses. And sometimes they can look wicked cool. Check out Gary McIntire's palm tree, which uses Bionicle Kraatas for fronds.

Special thanks to Linus Bohman, who came up with his own use for kraatas, for pointing this out to me!

Some Smooth Spacey SNOT
