A Catablog of Tools, Tips, and Techniques for building with LEGO®

This is an Ice Bridge posted on Flickr by rongYIREN. Lots of great stuff going on here. Love the use of the 1×2 trans blue tiles for water, this is becoming a popular technique these days. And the contrast of that with the white makes the whole scene feel very cold, but is very effectively done. Notice the chunk of ice that has broken apart at the front right, as well as how the water is undercutting the ice a little to the left of that.

The Surfer created by Tiberium Blue and posted on Flickr.

So many awesome techniques going on here. The water appears to be based on white plates connected with joints to get the curving effect of the wave. The white is then covered with trans-blue tiles and highlighted on the break and splash with 1×2 trans clear plates.

Notice the use of the slopes for the surfers feet.

The title of this one from Brickshelf is Field Kitchen by Pepik … don’t know if that’s a synonym for “outhouse”, but to me, that’s essentially what this is. I really like the use of tile for wood planks. Notice the cheese, too.
