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 …
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.

Bricks city and LEGO custom order Church in Łomianki near Warsaw – everything from Lego bricks
When I was small I used to have a Lego bricks city. And as you know, in every big city or a town there is a town hall, a market, a shop and of course a beautiful church. The one in Łomianki is an extremely interesting modern building, that is why we started our construction works straight ahead. LEGO custom order of the Roman Catholic Parish of St. Margaret the Virgin and Martyr was our first serious order. The project was extremely satisfying for us, mainly due to the fact. That we could add some interesting scenes around the church. For instance, there is a wedding taking place in front of the church accompanied by a band playing for the young couple.
Buildings made of mini blocks lego because sometimes it takes just a few hours and there’s the Cistercian Abbey in Sulejów.
Buildings made of mini blocks lego, one of them is the order of the local government from Sulejów, precisely the Church from the Monastery of the Cistercian abbey in Sulejów – located in Podklasztorze (currently the district of Sulejów), one of the best preserved Cistercian groups in Poland, which is a monument of Romanesque architecture. On October 22, 2012, the facility was added to the list of Historical Monuments. Thus, since it is an important Polish facility. Saint Thomas of Canterbury church is a three-aisled basilica whose date of building completion is assumed to be the year of consecration of the church i.e. 1232. The structure of the church has been preserved intact. The front of the church is decorated with a Romanesque portal and a rosette. The equipment of the temple comes from the Baroque and Rococo period. Because of the fact that it is a very old facility with an interesting shape, we have found that we can present it in an interesting way using Lego bricks. Nevertheless, such a model is one of these models easy to build from Lego bricks.
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.
