LEGO Medevac / Air Ambulance Helicopter MOC

As promised. Am I completely happy with it?  No, definitely not, but it will have to do for now.  There are a lot of things about it that seem obvious to change to a casual observer's eye, that physically cannot be corrected due to the limitations of structure & proportions beneath the surface.

I'm doing something a little different with this MOC, though, in letting viewers directly decide a final detail!

Edit:  I forgot to consider that many viewers probably have never seen the style of helicopter I'm going for.  It's not supposed to look like a standard, long-fuselage, large-tail heli :)  The MD NOTAR air ambulances have a very plain cylindrical tail with a fuselage that terminates quite prematurely compared to the "norm."  A couple examples: https://www.flickr.com/photos/futureshape/6341986788/in/pool-medicalhelicopters https://www.flickr.com/photos/last_lightning/6729410789/in/pool-medicalhelicopters

Ionix Tenkai Knights Granox & Slyger figures reviewed!

Two more for the Tenkai Knights fans out there.  I'm so glad the Beast Master story diversion is finally gone from the TV show in the US!

LEGO custom Hospital MOC progress - Step 1

It begins... again!  You followed the build of my zoo, you followed the build of my mall, and now you can follow the build of the hospital I've been talking about since at least early March of 2013.

I have no idea how long this will take, but when there's progress, you'll see it :)

LEGO City custom Ambulance MOC

Hey, I'm 2 for 2!  Here's another vehicle MOC that I actually really like. It's not intended to be any sort of direct replica of a specific real life vehicle, but it takes inspiration from a few and represents a conversion of that inspiration into a constrained LEGO form.

Blog viewers get to see this a day before it's publicized on YouTube :)

LEGO custom Redneck Off-Roader MOC + Bonus

Breaking the mold!  This wacky thing is one of those creations that almost built itself.  I just brought a few pieces in close proximity to one another and the rest practically grew in from thin air.  Much fun.

LEGO Creator 40106 Toy Workshop reviewed!

What a nice freebie from LEGO!  This one's an October bonus for large purchases directly from LEGO stores, and it goes nicely with the Santa's Workshop set as well.

Nothing fancy here, just six small custom vehicles for the streets of my city.  Yes, I did say six :)

LEGO Hobbit 79018 The Lonely Mountain set review

It's all about that big red dragon in this one!  This is a set that could have gone horribly wrong in a number of ways.  I think LEGO actually pulled it off, though.

They sell this one under the "Battle of Five Armies" subtheme, but obviously it's quite usable within the Desolation of Smaug segment of the story timeline as well.

LEGO Hobbit 79016 Attack On Lake-town set review

I really had low expectations for this set, just looking at the main picture, but it pleasantly surprised me with its many little play features and very good minifigs.

LEGO Friends 41033 Jungle Falls Rescue set review

I continue to make my way through the second wave of LEGO Friends sets for this year.
