Crossing the Danube

Post by Fithboy on Fri Jul 13, 2012 12:25 pm

UPDATED! I took you comments into account and fixed up the MOC. Thanks to everyone who gave advice.

Log entry 258-

This is it. The final push to Berlin. We're crossing the Danube today, Jack has found a place to cross where the river thins, though we'll have to look out for the Nazis who are patrolling the viaduct above.

Meh, it's good, but the bridge is kinda blocky looking and the water is a bit plain.

I do like the little swampy area though, it's nicely done.

Bridge is blocky. Fix with inverted slopes. Random plant on bridge is odd. Maybe use tiles for the "Metal" part of the tracks. Sand doesn't look natural. Light blue water is oddly placed. Maybe put it in a circle of light blue in the middle? Seriously? You can't layer anything under the bridge? Swamp is my favorite part of this MOC, but shows no importance. Hope that helps.

Needs less blockyness, the ground needs to be above the water need more grass pieces on the MOC, and some more details overall would look nice.

I warned you to use inverted slopes twice. xP The bridge is far too blocky without them. Also, the layering should be raised above the water line, or it looks more like a puddle than anything.

I need the parts from this MOC to continue with some other projects, but I didn't want to shred it just yet. Everyone has told me to put inverted slopes on the bottom of the arch. I wanted to do them all in dark bley, but I don't have enough and I don't want to make another Bricklink order just for inverted slopes. So I thought, why don't I mix the greys?



It does look awesome with inverted slopes, but I'm not too sure about the mixed greys. Shall I fix the river and update the first post in the MOC, or just leave it?

Mix the Greta together in a pile and then put them on randomly so you don't just have the one side one color and the other side another. Or take the picture at an angle that only shows the one color.

Ok, thanks, I'll try that.

Also where the 1x4 arch brick is, Replace it with a 2x4 or something.. It doesn't flow with the curve...

It looks much better, but I'm still disappointed at the lack of detail under the aquaduct. Mad
