Let’s take a look at some W.I.P. photos of the craziest Bus all around!
The C/Bus is composed by 4 single modules, you can easily separate them and choose the ones you want to connect, it’s easy and fun! Do you remember the Mini C/Bus? it was composed by the first and last modules that actually were the front and back of the Bus.

Scroll through the images and find out the 4 modules the Crazy|Bus is composed by. Have fun!

A few days ago I showed you my latest and strangest creation, the Crazy Bus.
With a few simple steps you can connect Module 1 with Module 4 to create the MINI CRAZY BUS, which is even more bizarre in this way.
Hope you like it!

The Crazy Bus is the funniest, weirdest, and strangest bus out there.
I built the Bus these days when I was forced to stay at home alone (!) and the thermometer touched 40 degrees, I felt like I was in hell!
I was probably a little “dazed and confused” when I thought about it, however here it is.
It is a sort of post apocalyptic refuge where two survivors, after yet another environmental disaster caused by human beings, find shelter to spend their days waiting for a new era.

In some ways it can be considered as a continuation of my previous Floating Dystopia, they have many things in common (and also some parts of the MOC itself).

The front and the back of the bus can be connected with two simple technic pins thus forming a mini bus. This way it’s even more bizarre! In the next few days I will show you the Mini Crazy Bus with some new brand photos, stay tuned!

There are a lot of tools, objects and weird parts, check them out and have fun spotting them all. Enjoy!

Crystal Mill extra pics

Crystal Mill extra pics

Let’s take a look at some extra-pics of my latest super fresh build: the Crystal Mill.
The double shack is built using my classic lifted-up tiles style, and it rocks!
While it’s my very first waterfall, rocks and trees come from my previous builds such as the A-Frame Cabin and the Blue Cottage.
I used more or less 2,500 plate round 1X1 trans-light blue to create the water effect.
There are many other hidden details and very interesting tecniques here and there, hope you have a good time spotting them all.


Crystal Mill (Colorado)

Crystal Mill (Colorado)

The Crystal Mill, or the Old Mill is an 1892 wooden powerhouse located on an outcrop above the Crystal River in Crystal, Colorado, United States.
Although called a Watermill, it is more correctly denoted as a compressor station, which used a water turbine to drive an air compressor, and was originally built with a horizontal wheel. The compressed air was then used to power other machinery or tools.
The building is built on a mining claim named “Lost Horse”, it fell into disuse in 1917 when the Sheep Mountain Tunnel mine closed.

I spotted the Crystal Mill while browsing in search of new rural houses to build and it caught my eye.
For the first time, I built two blocks of rocks and a waterfall made from hundreds of 1×2 trans-clear plates. Many other builders have tried their hand at this type of build so thanks for inspiring me.

The story goes that an old gold digger* accidentally discovered the now disused Crystal Mill, and immediately decided to live there isolated from the rest of the world. One day an explorer* on a small boat while sailing on the Crystall River came across the old shack…What will happen when the explorer and the gold digger meet?

*Mainly based on the CMF Prospector (Series 12), without a doubt one of my favorite Minifigs.
**Probably the explorer was part of Johnny Thunder‘s Adventures team 😉

“When it comes to beautifully constructed LEGO cabins, Andrea Lattanzio is in a class of his own. Whether you’re looking for perilously perched adventure or a little holiday magic, odds are good Andrea has you covered. Andrea’s latest build is the Crystal Mill, a real-life Colorado landmark as it might have looked back in the 19th century. The realistic trees and gorgeous waterfall catch your attention right away, but don’t overlook the smaller details of the cabin, like the minifigure wand elements on the front-door and the creatively crafted ladder.”
