#67 TECHNIQUES - Damaged wall
So why am I starting on post #67? This post was one of the first where I am still happy with it in terms of quality.
Like everything when building with LEGO, the possibilities are endless no matter what you're making. Anyone can make a wall, but only some can create one that is visually stunning and pleasant to look at. This concrete wall was created by Marin Stipkovic in April 2013, and remains my favourite build for walls to date.
He has used a combination of technic and regular bricks to create a damaged wall, with wooden supports being visible. This is achieved as some bricks have indents in them, which allows you to place elements in them such as poles. This creates the vertical wooden supports, while the cross in technic bricks normally used for technic axles has been utilized to hold the poles at a vertical level.
He incorporates lots of parts you wouldn't normally use for walls to create the damaged look, with studs, slopes and even cylinders and technic pins all adding to the destroyed effect.
