Imperial Petting Zoo

As some of your may be aware my theme for the coming months is Galactic Elections. I this MOC is of the latest attempt by Vader to get votes. An Imperial petting zoo. The idea behind this was just a bit of a silly to use some of my LEGO and some of my Daughter's. The deli in the background was to just help fill out the space. I really like the Storm troopers in ordinary clothing but still with their helmets on. additionally the Bunny Trooper made me chuckle. Around the MOC I

LEGO CREATOR Deli.

The thing that I love about the LEGO CREATOR series is the level of detail. The fact that there are often instructions for 3 different models from one set is good too. This set was fun to make and didn't take long at all. In fact 1 hour and 10 minutes. This is the back of the box that demonstrates the different possibility of the build. One nice idea is that the instructions are in 3 different books. Here are all the sets blocks in 5 different bags. This version of the set ha

Police Called to Break up Underground Rave on.... the UNDERGROUND.

This MIC is fully inspired by the great news story from last night that Police were called to break-up a “fully-fledged rave” on board a packed Tube train, featuring flashing lights, a sound system and an MC. Here is the link to the Evening Standard. I started with what I thought would be the hardest part. The slope into the roof of the tube car. Actually this turned out to be easier than expected. The standard blue TFL fabric on the seats. As it turned out the hardest bit of

The More You Put in the More You Get Out

So true of so many things. This was one of the many motivational sentences that came out of the fitness instructor recording theup coming Sky Sports Fit in 5. I have just spent the last 2 days working with a great crew and enjoyed the day job this week. The set it's self is really well made and a pleasure to work with. Made by talented inderviduals it is superb. The brick work has been individually hand painted. Unfortunately I don't have the quality of bricks in the desired

Look who's back

Right I feel an apology is needed. So my day job can be very demanding at times with "shifts" happening any time day or night. Lately they have had me in work on overnights and long late shifts. Especially this week I have been to Australia, England and the USA in mind that is not body. Put the good news is that I have a week off work and some of that will be with my daughter but it dose mean I have time to get my Brick ON. #Sorry #lego #work
