The first photo on this page shows the model Andrew Lipson made. The photo is taken under a such angle in respect that the different parts line up in the photo, to get the desired effect. "Waterfall" used a combination of specifically angled photographs, coupled with some post processing to remove the overlapping elements: OK, let's come clean. We ...

I will sometimes take another piece, i.e. a 1x4, next to the row I'm about to place so it helps align it. Then use the brick separator's flat end to adjust the 1x1 as needed. But I'm a little ocd about the tiles being lined up...

Using a cut-pipe into a clip-with-tube will let you build a secure and precise angle. If you have a solid brick behind the headlight bricks you can fix the angle by cutting the pipe at the right length.

I have 2 Banbao set from before the lawsuit with Lego (minifig style minifigs) and they are more and less compatible with lego, the pitch between the studs is the same. But there are some remark I noticed within comparing both brand for a few minutes. Studs are higher, a Lego plate on a Banbao brick will leave a small gap between both bricks Plates are ...

The best piece to represent a round belly is the "Plate, Round 2 x 2 with Rounded Bottom" (part 2654). The "dome" pieces are way too big. Connect the rounded bottom plate to the bottoms of two "Brick, Modified 1 x 1 with Headlight" bricks (part 4070), also known as the Erling brick. Use short legs to get the total height right. Note that the pegs on the ...

This answer will by definition have a lot of links, but here we go. Since you're looking for instructions there are a few sites that you should consider visiting. The first is Cubiculus, which specializes in creating LDraw versions of custom and official instructions. The creator of the site adds plenty of his own (basic) instructions. The second is ...

For a number of sets that I've had these in (the Minecraft Mirco-worlds and the Scientists Ideas set) they've also come with one of the new orange Brick tools. You can use the edge of the tool to run along between the sides of the tiles and the next row of studs - I find this works better than using another plate or brick because the tool has more play over ...

How to fix it depends on how broken it is - if you've got a few large sections that need to go back in it might be easier than if they have been broken down to the individual elements. The first step is to ensure you still have the instructions - if not, they should be available on LEGO's site: Building Instructions and search for "75025" (there are two ...

My method is to use a 2x8 (or longer) plate like a pry bar. Put the 2-stud end on the studs next to the tiles and pry up a little and they line up like a charm.

So I've been referring to this post for a long time and I figured it is time to put in my experiences. One thing that many answers don't talk about is that different glues are good for different purposes so my input will revolve around that. A little background. I've been building Lego for multiple decades though only recently started using glue as I've ...

Note that LEGO Digital Designer can also show you building steps, but the results have been known to be a little odd. I'm not entirely sure what you're asking here: Can I export models from LEGO Digital Designer as LDraw files? Yes, although you will probably need to update the LDraw.xml file that LDD uses to export the parts. Once you've completed your ...

Another option is the LEGO Club Magazine - available online and through the post in some countries too - they have three editions: Green Brick - Junior builders, probably what you're looking for at this stage Yellow Brick - Mostly Friends/Elves focused, but with some City/other Red Brick - Mostly City/Chima/Bionicle, but with some others as well All of ...

They used an adhesive of some sort. You can see from the side that the piece is attached flush to the body of the minifig, and there is no additional gap between the torso and legs pieces to account for any sort of bracket.

One alternative is to use an appropriate decal rather than trying to construct something. Image courtesy Flikr.
