I don’t know what else to say about this MOC by vitreolum except that one thing you should not underestimate when it comes to pianos is fire safety. Clearly this gentleman did to disastrous results. I don’t know if he just had his nerves shook and brain rattled, nor do I know if it was purely the friction of the hammers on the strings or if an accelerant was involved, but this piano will never be the same, and that’s just a shame.
When most people think of battle mechs, they often imagine a huge and clunky war machine made to take a pounding. But Chokolat Shadow envisions something much more agile and graceful but that packs just as much of a punch! Think of this mech as the assassin of mechs! A beautiful, firey, mechanized assassin that is.
Since humans got smart enough to build houses, we've been dumb enough to set them on fire. And going way, way back we've had groups of brave individuals willing to risk their lives to combat those fires. Eventually we built vehicles to help with the task, like this fire truck from the oldest fire apparatus manufacturer in America, Bickle Seagrave. Builder Nouvilas does this classic justice in this build.
We've featured the amazing emergency vehicles of builder sponki25 here on BrickNerd before, but they've always been single vehicles on blank backgrounds. Seeing these heroes all in a more realistic setting, gathered to combat a crisis situation is really impressive. Speaking of impressive, that fire and smoke effect is absolutely brilliant.
This month's LUGnuts challenge has certainly been eventful. It's not hard to imagine why since it's the 100th (!) and they're doing it up right. Builder Moritz drew "fire engine" and as you can see, he ran with it. Inspired by FDNY's iconic lime green engines, this beast looks as capable as starting as many fires as it puts out, but it would certainly be awesome to see in action.
