Dreaming in White LEGO


Did you know that if you work with only white LEGO bricks for a couple of days, you start to dream of a room built in white LEGO? At least that’s what I did last night. 😀

This is a teaser pic of my latest project. Now of course the final model will not be a giant white globe, but its easier to prototype all in one color and then draw the pattern design on LEGO brick paper.

Using the same basic techniques I teach in How to Build a Round Ball with Square Bricks! I started this globe with only line drawings and lots of white LEGO bricks. And here’s a Model Building Secrets tip for you — by starting with the smallest curves first I slowly built the curves one at a time using the mirrors as reference to see if the final globe looked correct. These are the same kind of techniques used in the Model Shops at LEGOLAND and the LEGO company.

I’m not sure when I’ll be able to post pictures of the final project, but at least this gives you a taste. 😉
