Wawel Cathedral built for Historyland Lego – MOC model of the Wawel castle in Krakow
A representative monument of Cracow is an absolute must-have in my collection of LEGO castle sets buildings and now it can be also labeled as the biggest model I’ve ever made. Only king-size for Polish kings! I’ve built already two models sculpture commissions of the former capital of our country to honor the city, that is Wawel and Cloth Hall.
I assume, that many of travelers ever wondered about seeing the Middle Ages building in one of the most beautiful towns of Poland. Even I was enchanted by the Lego castle sets, so I decided to go into the project proposed by my friends from HistoryLand. How did that end? You can see on your own on my model filled with the spirit of Wawel and its special residents, who are walking around the castle.
Lego moc Dreams are worth fighting for I always believe that. Even now, I focus on them because that can bring you a worthy life, if not financially, so for sure satisfactory. This belief led me to the most wonderful project in my life – building Krakow’s Cloth Hall of LEGO bricks. It was a challenging breakpoint in my life and I can be really proud of this, see for yourself.
Who hasn’t built anything with this bricks, let first throw a rock! I suppose that everyone in their childhood had built some more or less extraordinary buildings. I’m not different but now, heading to my thirties I’m still having fun with LEGO. You can’t just abandon some of your dreams! Moreover, sometimes it’s worth to keep this precious treasure of your youth because you never know whether it can bear a fruit. In my case it did.
It is time to start mass in personalized LEGO advanced models church for all the LEGO fans.
Not only I am an avid fan of LEGO bricks! One of the admirers of this specific architecture wanted a special model, which I obviously gladly did. In the end, what you do not do for your friends for a hobby 😉 This time, as Poland is long and wide, we return to the Catholic roots and take a small church to recreate. I tried not to omit anything that is characteristic of this type of building, which can be found in almost every town or village. So here is not only the church itself from the top but also a small cemetery with a substantial entrance gate. There’s nearly some people who are ready to start masses will gather before the entrance …
The main principle of health and safety at work is order in the workplace is a guarantee of safety for everyone on awesome lego sets
“The order in the workplace is a guarantee of safety.” This kind of slogan could be seen on the boards in every workplace in Poland not so long ago, it is during the PRL period. Now it sounds like a joke with an admixture of historical truth also works on lego sculptures.
Combustion plant and managing of waste is our next big target. We decided to record our first movies featuring LEGO bricks to show our projects to the greater audience. Stop motion movie about LEGO technique perfectly fits to present our custom LEGO kits. During constructing the maquette that displays waste sorting and combustion plant we took thousands of photos to merge them into a movie clip. The effect surprised even us! Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrZB_7tl53M .
Ecology and healthy life is a really common topic (also for Us lego masters) these days which concerns everybody. I’m into this subject, too because I graduated AGH University of Science and Technology for environment protection. That’s why I decided to help in increasing awareness of waste recycling and care for nature.
Waste management – how to do this properly by lego masters?
An important aspect of environmental protection is to deepen our conscience about that, that’s why me and Hewelianum Centre from Gdańsk took up a challenge to educate people about waste management. The Association of Marine Towns and Communes started a project named “Waste under control” which introduced in Google Lego my new maquette by lego masters, simultaneously teaching about basics of ecology. The aim was to reach the largest group of respondents and therefore the model was traveling across the Pomerania to such cities as Koszalin, Szczecin and Gdańsk, where it stayed for good. If you are curious about learning of taking care of mother Earth on living, I invite you to the Hewelianum Centre, where you can see the model with the specific description and tips for working on our environmental quality.
LEGO mini models and the Amber Arena Stadium in Gdansk in the World of Matt Kustra
A stadium made of Lego? Why not! We launched the construction works in our free time. The LEGO mini models of Baltic Arena Euro 2012 Poland was designed by Ideo company and made entirely out of LEGO. It can serve as a perfect decoration of any office desk or living room. Suitable for all those who love sports and – above all – enamor LEGO. The model was created in a Micro scale corresponding to the scale of LEGO architecture.
Unofficial LEGO sets like Lego Jesus and His Roman Catholic Church
Lego Jesus, that is a Roman Catholic Church designed by Ideo using Lego bricks. Who would not want to have a church entirely made out of Legos in their town? Since forever, each small town seems to have at least one Church, placed near the main square and the town hall. It can’t be missing from any model town! Because of that, we have received an order to build a tiny Church from Lego bricks and had to make it fit in a small area. The extra tricky part was to make sure that one of the walls is open, to allow for an easy access to the interior. Additionally, we had to fill unofficial lego sets the building with tiny details, which are our specialty 😉 A few months later we have finished another, much larger Church – Roman Catholic Holy Parish of Saint Margaret the Virgin in Lomianki, just outside of Warsaw.
Forbidden LEGO Pathological tenement on the PRL model on the exhibition of the Museum of Municipal Engineering in Krakow
Forbidden LEGO Pathological tenement on the mock People’s Republic of Poland model at the Museum of Municipal Engineering exhibition
An idea on creating a mock forbidden lego model of Republic of Poland, specially designed for the Municipal Engineering Museum in Krakow. Exhibition arose on the forum of adult LEGO bricks lovers. In those days I did not have many bricks and I was not able to fully show what I can do. However, I just had to add my own three bricks to the mock model of a communist town. I got my own, small piece of mock and I got to work on that. The beginning was quite efficient, yet there was no chance to finish it all up quickly. Every time there were some bricks missing and I just could not finish constructing a building without them (those were the days when there were always not enough bricks). Yet I finally made it and the building was fitted in its place.
Lego bricks constructions exhibition – LEGO buy and sell mock models by Matt Kustra
I just love building Lego bricks constructions. That is why I have been working on my own private collection for several years. My Lego bricks exhibition was enlarged by a new micro mock model. Designed by Ideo from Lego bricks, a micro mock model of the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw. The mock model is ideal as a desk or house decoration. While making the design, 400 Lego bricks were used. The effects of our work can be seen at the visualization at the Lego Gallery.
