LEGO® Modulex® Brick House by YVD

Found this terrific Brick House created by YVD with her Modulex® collection. Great job. Notice the profile pieces used for the shutters. She also has a tile floor in the entryway. I am hoping that YVD (I’m just using her online name for now) comes by and gives us some comments about her building. Check out her other Modulex® items on her flickr photostream (a burger restaurant and an ice cream parlour). In addition to Modulex® MOCs, she has some terrific MOCs created with standard LEGO®.

Paper about the History of Modulex

Recently I found a LEGO Modulex fan who goes by the handle SlyOwl (on the Eurobricks forum) who wrote a paper on the history of LEGO Modulex and the demise of the bricks for architecture modeling. He has graciously given me permission to post his paper here. The information in the paper is interesting and I hope it will spark some more people to come out of the woodwork and help us put together more of the timeline and history of the Modulex story. Enjoy!

“Doors of Durin” Modulex Mosaic for BrickMagic 2011

“The Doors of Durin,” from J.R.R. Tolkien’s illustration in The Fellowship of the Ring. This mosaic is made entirely of LEGO Modulex. The black background derives its geometry and texture from both matte and glossy black tiles, sized 1×1 to 4 x 4. The “drawing” is a layer of trans-clear over Pastel Blue. First displayed this weekend (May 5-8) at BrickMagic 2011 (Raleigh, NC)
