Brick Fiesta 2011 – Part 2

IF you want to see the first part, here is Part 1 of my Brick Fiesta pics if you want to see the other photos published so far. This is the full set at flickr.

As I said in part 1, the lighting was not optimal for photography without a nice flash, but I tried. The quality does get better.

If you click on the photo below, it will take you to a larger version of the photo.

While I can’t read all of the cards, and apologize for missing many, on the right is the “Chesapeak & Ohio Engine #1602 from a 2009 MOC by Anthony Sava, which is a 2-6-6-5 class steam engine.”

This was by far one of my favorite MOCs that I saw, and one of the largest, if not the largest. It is a 2011 MOC called Mirage, by Nannan Zhang and Tyler Clites. “High above, the guardians of the seven virtues protect the worlds below from sin and corruption.”

The larger MOC on the left is “Blacktron: Mission Atlantis” (2011) by Ethan Balmer, a unique take on merging Blacktron and Atlantis.

The red creation you see in the upper right is titled “Red is Fast”, a 2010 MOC by Nathan Jones. “Jimmy spilled his drink in his new shiny hotrod. Because red is fast.”

The green and white one below is titled “Spearmint” and is another 2010 MOC by Nathan. “Short range anti-cruiser starfighter with a powerful laser that takes up the entire length of the new.”

Many of these old school Space and Lunar-themed creations and sets are from William “Pat” Hough who came up from Houston. On the right of the monorail system, you can see a 2010 MOC, Kepler Condominiums (2010) by William “Pat” Hough “Here at the Kepler Condominiums, we take the doldrums out of lunar living. Whether you prefer upscale viewing entertainment, the latest technological innovations, or an unparalleled view of the lunar landscape, Kepler is the place for you!

To the lower left is the “Big Red Shuttle”, a 2010 creation from Bryce (not sure of the last name), who states “I designed this MOC to inspire young builders all across the world so they will know you don’t need an instruction book to create with LEGO. All you need are some random bricks, a good mood, and a little imagination.”

The garden/greenhouse in front of the communications dish is another MOC by Pat, “Hydroponics Garden” (2010) which is a “domed hydroponics garden containing flora and fauna from several worlds, including the fabeled Earth. Here, moonbase inhabitants can take in the scents of the forest and visit wild creations in their natural habitat”

The large spaceship on the right is also another MOC from Pat, a recent 2011 creation. The CSS Indomitable. “The CSS (Classic Space Ship) Indomitable is a frontline assault cruiser and the last ship of the older Invincible class. The Quasar class replaced the Invicible line in 2788. The CSS Indomitable is due to revert to training vessel status in 2814.
