Abandoned Lot

The theme for Swebrick’s Masterbuilder competition was ‘Park & Nature’ this time around, and as that is what I love to build the most, it was pretty natural for me to join 🙂 At first I had quite a few ideas of different kinds of undulating landscapes, but as some of the rules were clarified…

The Foothills

Landscapes is one of my favourite things to build in Lego which is why I tend to gravitate towards microscale builds, as you can create larger landscapes with fewer pieces. Of course, with smaller scale there is also a loss in detail, so there is a balance to be struck. This build I was testing…

Spruce

Two spruces that I built for a larger build that I’m working on for a competition. I rather liked how they turned out so I built a little base for them and took some nicer photos. The trunk is made with the same technique used for many of my minifig scale trees – the axe…

Brick Bonsai

It’s been quite a while since I built my first bonsai, so it was time for another try. Though, this build is more the result of testing out two different techniques, rather than an attempt at creating a complete piece. The first technique is the brick pattern of the pot, which is something I’ve been…

Micro Cottages

I really like building micro scale landscapes, and most of the time my focus is on the nature part of a build – how to make it look natural and organic. Most of the time, however, nature builds center around something, often something man made. For this reason I decided to do some experimentation with…

The Ascent

A micro landscape build inspired by the Swiss alps which I had the privilege to do some hiking in a while ago. I was fascinated by the change in vegetation with altitude and I thought it’d make a nice theme for a build. The effect is, of course, greatly exaggerated in this build for aesthetic…

Ninja Horn Tree

Micro scale trees are something I really like building, and I’m always looking for new designs in order to get some variety in my micro landscapes. While tinkering a bit with new tree designs I came up with this new design, which consists of ninja horns stuffed into a flotation devices. It’s a pretty odd…
