Brandenburger Tor

Okay, I have a complaint. LEGO Design by Me is absolutely impossible to search. Max Niebling has gone and uploaded his great Brandenburg Gate design and then ordered it as a custom set, but I have no idea how someone else could order this for themselves. The administrators of the Design by Me section of Lego.com should really come up with a way to highlight some of these great designs, rather than make you wade through random MOCs. Anway, enough grousing, check out this great rendition of the Berlin landmark.

Max has a number of additional landmarks designed in microscale. I hope he goes on to produce many of these in true ABS form.

Maybe their search is broken? Right now I can't search for anything in the DesignByMe public gallery at all.

Regardless, I wish LEGO would facilitate direct-linking (perhaps even through an embeddable preview widget, complete with download and order buttons) to DesignByMe creations. I'd get that Brandenburger Tor design in a heartbeat.

If you zoom way in on the photo of the open box, there's a glimpse of the Packing List with the address of the creator. Write them (in German) and see if you can get their Lego Digital Designer (LDD) .lxf file sent to you: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/sheep/LEGO-Produkte/LEGO-Factory/LF000001915692/lf000001915692-110-brandenburger_tor.jpg
