Bright orange is hard to use in LEGO structures. Sometimes it's just too over- powering and the color just takes away from the model as a whole. However, this building by Naneto, a Portuguese AFOL, is certainly an exception. By blending it with the white bricks and the black outlines created by the windows, the orange enhances the building's look and contributes to a very pleasing aesthetic design. Good work!
This was actually a coincidence, but when I stumbled upon this building I couldn't help but post it here. This is an amazing creation, and best yet, it has a superb interior to go along with it. Who knew a musket could be such a good railing?
His work's been blogged before, and for a good reason. This LEGO model is a tremendous rendition of Japanese architecture. The brown, vertical beams look terrific as well as that finely sloped gray tiled roof.
Very intriguing build. The wall along the sidewalk really catches the eye, as do the red and tan conflicting with each other. However, I think my favorite part is the glass-balcony walk out, great idea there. Keep up the great work!
A very nice model to say the least. The horizontal black rectangle with the yellow dots really stands out against the tan wall. The general black outline of the whole structure really brings everything into focus for me. Very cool!
I don't know about you, but whenever I build something, it is usually based off something I saw while on a trip or something that's been eating away at my conscious for awhile. For example, after visiting Calumet, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, I was inspired to build a church. What inspires you to build?
And then there are the problems faced while building. It can start at any moment. Not sure what to build, how to build it, the lack of pieces, or the sudden change in mind. What problems do you face? How do you fix them?
I would just like to hear your thoughts and comments on the matter.
Just caught this on the CBS evening news today. LEGO is "building up its workforce by 10%" and sales are up 20%. Sounds like great news, hopefully they can keep this up through the holiday season. Thoughts and comments always appreciated!
