Ok, here is the idea: We make this thread a collection of useful websites for people to use to find buidling reference pics, or sites to find inspiration / things to build on.
Well known site I know but if you are looking to build something just search “lego *****” replacing the stars with what you want to build; For example “lego space tank” etc. People have built some frankly cool things with lego, and can show how they made the overall form from basic lego units.
I use this a lot!!
It is by far my favourite - I mean I just made up the “lego space tank” search example, I just searched it now and there are atleast 3 very cool designs on the 1st page.
I will be very annoyed if one of you builds something from my “to build” folder which I have mainly filled with lego things from flikr
This originally came from Simple/Mc-Haddock
Provides detailed walk-arounds for pretty much every modern military vehicle, even WWII vehicles. Tanks, Helicopters, jets what ever takes your fancy.
Great for finding ref pics in HR from all angles or just to browse to find something to build
These are three very good blueprint sites, the first and thrid only being for cars, the second for pretty much all vehicles including sci-fi !!
Good for finding detailed blue prints for that tricky contraption
*Note the second site needs a membership for higher res images (they are scaled without 1)
This is a car modeling forum, where one you are a member there are many cars in various states of completion; Often cars are shown in parts so constructing them can be easier
2nd is a blueprint section of the forums with many many cars
That is all I can think of for now, though I’m trying to find another awesome site for military vehicles and variants with plenty of detail that I used to use. Hopefully 1 of you post it
Please add your own sites
oh and wiki etc go without saying.
3rd link is a post with many HR car picture sites
same deal as flikr but purely lego. Lego can give you some great ideas.
