Barbed wire

Post by DarthPineapple on Mon Sep 08, 2008 4:26 pm

I was disappointed with the barbed wire Lego came up with, so I had to make my own. I needed a roll for my WIP WWII MOC.

See here. The quality of the pic is poor since I once made this to show off at ABL some time ago. I've put a German BA fig with BF helmet there as well, for comparison. The edges still need some work, this barbed wire is still in WIP progress. IT WILL BE ABLE TO PUT ONTO LEGO AFTERWARDS.

I'm also planning to make a 'City' version.

EDIT: Dang, sorry, I placed this in Other MOCs instead of WIPs. MOD, please move? Thanks. Smile

Awesome idea! I think your barbed wire looks much better than Lego's. Good luck! Smile Blue Arc

Ahhh, yes, I was wondering when you'd reveal this to the world! This really is great DP, the way it looks, the scale, it's perfect! Smile Blue Arc

Nice! Looks very realistic! Now all you need is a high grey wall to put it on...

Or line a battlefield with it! Smile

wait, Lego released barb wire? I don't recall that...but barbed wire can still be brickbuilt quite easily. Just get a few black rods and stick some black hands on it close together and overlapping.

You won't get a 'tube', like I have now. Indeed, Lego released barbed wire, in light bluish gray, and it were circles.

In an Agents set, it's on a gate. Thenon-modder in me says no to this, for a number of reasons. The main one is this. Casting is okay because it's still made out of plastic. This is just steel. I don't think it will fit in with Lego as well.

Yea, I really wish they had long stands of barbed wire. That would be best.
