My name is Pascal Parent, and I am a self-confessed “Adult Fan Of LEGO” (AFOL).
Had you told me that I would be doing LEGO models and tutorials in 2016, I would probably have laughed at the notion and dismissed it just as fast, I was head deep in creating large scale IT solutions for big corporates. In retrospect this was conceptualy not diferant to puting LEGO blocks together.
Though I started with LEGO as a toddler, and my interest in mechanics drove me to continue building LEGO Technics set throughout my life, I may have done one Technics set a year at most.
Today, I have a dedicated site on the subject and I shifted from the Technics sets to modular buildings, these present an architectural chalenge that appeals to me.
After my neurological event in late 2016, I started building in earnest as a learning tool to use my left hand and improving my left co-ordination as my right was all but gone and still is. I suffer from a condition called CRPS or RSD, and unfortunately, I am at a point where all treatments have failed. Building LEGO sets has been a good form of therapy. In the process of therapy, the bug bit, again. I started building modular buildings in early 2018, and I can’t seem to stop.
In early 2019, I started building in Briklink Studio and thought I’d share these with you.
I am still a beginner at designing buildings and interiors and draw a lot of inspirations and techniques from various places on the internet.
As a matter of interest, there are a few good AFOL groups worth following on Facebook:
- Custom LEGO Modular Buildings administered by master builders Barrie Crossan and Paoko Sánchez (a.k.a. Bricky_Brick on LEGO Ideas)
- LEGO Modular Buildings & Dioramas
- LEGO MOC Building Inspiration & Ideas
Youtube is another great resource with channels such as Small Brick City and many more showing how to build not just the finished build.
