Mods

Welcome to my mods page. Here is where I take existing models or rather, Lego® kits and change them to my own designs. Sometimes, the change is subtle. Other times, you can’t tell what the original model was. Part MOC (My Own Creation), part official kit. It’s all part of the fun.

Below you can see my latest Lego® mods and I’ll talk about each one; why I made the mod, if you can do it from just one kit or need extra parts etc. Have a good rummage through, let me know what you think. I hope these inspire you and I’d love to see what you build too.

 

Why mods?

Once upon a time, every model’s box had pictures on the back of alternative models you could build just from that kit. Every box. The whole point was to build the model (1 hour’s play), then make your own models from it after (many hour’s play). The alternative models were usually made up of part or most of the original. Maybe they were concept ideas that led to the finished model. The point of these alternatives was that you could keep most of the model you’d built, but stylise it or add cool new features quickly and easily, at any age or skill level.

 

Getting into Lego? Want to?

Starting new Lego® projects can be daunting, especially if you haven’t had much experience in building things three-dimensionally. Buying a model, then modding it bit-by-bit is a great way to get comfortable expressing your own ideas and getting used to how the actual Lego® set builders make strong structures and complex shapes.
