Macsen Wleidig, an excellent historical builder, has built this epic confrontation between Romans and Etruscans, and actually historical event. Click on the photo to see a wealth of information about the battle in the description. What I enjoy about this MOC is the beautiful architecture, with the worn stone, the half-Lowell sphere used to create a domed roof, and the sense of action conveying the fury of battle, expertly portrayed by the minifig posing and the rushing water effect. Well done!

...no, wait, that's not forced! James Pegrum, the master of historically-accurate MOCs, has amazed us once again with this scene based in London in 1874. The rough stone street is very well done, but for me it's the look of the houses that perfects the build. The buildings on the right look especially good.

Way to finish with a bang! With just a few days left in SHIPtember, Lego Junkie made this beautiful SHIP, the USS Matal. The shaping, colors, and presentation are all top notch. I really like those white missile launchers on the side; they really add an eye-catching splash of color.

BricksBen LEGO Creations, a superb double act, uploaded this brilliant Formula 1 racer to Flickr. I love how the simplicity of the design only complements the overall look - it's instantly recognisable. Sure, these guys were featured the other day, but when you build like they do you deserve to be featured more than once!

Yep, that's how I feel about this year's SHIPtember! This incredibly sweet SHIP from Rphilo004 is detailed yet still simple enough to be able to appreciate how good this thing looks. My favourite feature is the use of the bley cones in between the top and bottom layers of green on the sides, a simple detail that adds a lot.
