Build whatever the hell you like, Lazer. The Higgins Boat, build-wise, is pretty good. True, it's not masterpiece - it's all a bit square and the interior is pretty rough - but it's nowhere near "horrible", as our resident anal fruit would have you believe. Just keep building the way you want to build, and maybe throw in Space General Patton for extra flavour.

Just imagine.

Hey, Mr. ***hole, I didn't say the build was horrible, I said it was horrible because it's barely accurate to the real thing. If you don't care about accuracy, fine, but then don't comment saying how I am wrong pointing out how inaccurate a WWII model is, because that's all about accuracy.
And now you'd better change your tone, because you're going out if you ever harass me or any other member on this site once again.

My only complaints are no driver for the boat and legless minifigures in the gun turrets. Sad

Don't cry Rook. You look funny when you cry. Surprised This was my first Second Fantasy WWII I have built. And reference pictures where not that great. I did not spot a drivers seat, for I thought it was self driven. And for the legless guys, it was a lack of curved bricks. Sad Roll Eyes

I'd say he is both befriending and inspiring in that post. Telling a guy to do what he wants opposed to telling him that a model is awful becuase it does not look the way you feel that it should look sounds positive, not negative to me.

Who ever said a WWII-themed model has to be "all about accuracy"? Do castle builds have to be precise replicas of real-life medieval castles? No. Then why shoud WWII builds need to be precise replicas of real-life WWII vehicles? If Lazer added a few rocket launchers, painted go-faster stripes on it and replaced the crew with pirates, it would only make the model worse if he made it look like crap. If he pulled it of with some style, it wouldn't be automatically bad because it's historically innaccurate.

If your preference is for accuracy, that's wonderful. Really, it is - you probably derive much more pleasure from scale modelling and the like than I ever could, and that's great for you. But please don't tell someone that their first build outside their comfort zone is horrible simply because it does not meet your personal expectations. You're hardly inspiring or befriending when you do that, are you?

Incidentally, does anyone remember when LEGO's slogan used to be 'Just Imagine'? Yeah, those were the days.

It's been said before, but I'll say it again. Jinja has won this thread.

It's a nice build LB, I have no knowledge of this WWII stuff so it looks nicely built to me. Wow this thing looks

I agree with Jinja, all WWII models look the same to me, most are copies of PhiMa's builds. The thing I love about LEGO is there's no limits, no rules. You can just get a pile of bricks and make your own rocket, tank, speeder, car, anything! Sitting at your computer screen for hours trying to figure out how to do the turret, headlights, cockpit just doesn't appeal to me, especially if on my first go I get told it's all wrong. What's the difference between WWII LEGO and SW LEGO? If the Republic can have over 1,000 different multicoloured speeders, then the Americans can have whatever they want. I've never cared 'bout accuracy in an MOC and probably never will.

If you enjoy it Lazer, keep building WWII.

WWII = real life = accurate models. If you add those stripes and cannons and stuff then it's not WWII. Don't act like you know a lot about it when you don't.
Also, castle is a really bad example. Lego completely makes up their castle line (dragons, orcs, undead, etc) and the more 'real life' creations are based on real life things. You don't know how it used to look as there are no pictures from that time, but castle builders do not add laser cannons to their towers. If you don't like WWII, then fine (I couldn't care less) but then don't go whine about how you don't agree with me, while I'm the expert here and not you. (Oh hey, now you can whine about me calling myself an expert! Woot! Roll Eyes )
It's as if I would post comments on how something classic space, something I barely know anything of, isn't following the theme's guidelines.

And just so you know, I've already explained what I meant to Lazer in a PM, and apologized if I offended him.

That is because they are all based on the exact same thing. If someone figures out something nice, lots of other people copy that. Not all MOCs are the same as PhiMa's, they include bits of various models.
As I said, WWII is about accuracy, so if someone comes up with a brilliant idea, why not copy it? Wink

Great work, Lazer! The "inverse-studs" on the interior are a bit ugly, but it's hard to remedy that...

Keep it up! You're breathing new life into the WWII MOCing line. Thumbs up

@LazerBlade Although this may not seem to be the most accurate I would advise that you continue to edit your design.
I personally think that if you sit down with a picture for a little while you could make your Jeep better.
