7066 Nnenn Tribute

by

Nate “Nnenn” Nielson passed unexpectedly away last year. It was a tragic loss for the whole AFOL community.

Nnenn as he was enigmatically known created fantastic space ship models. There have been many tributes to Nnenn since his passing but he has now been honored in a truly unique way: Alien Conquest set #7066.

The sticker on the vic viper style fighter in the set shows a viper head and “nnenn.” It is a wonderful tribute that only a very few are honored with.

Update:I just found out from my LEGO set designer friends that this set was designed by Mark Stafford and that he is most likely the one responsible for the tribute.

    Do you know who the lead designer happened to be on the Alien Conquest line? Was it Mark Stafford?

    A really amazing tribute and recognition of Nnenn and the AFOL community.

    Indeed Mark and I found that this amazing builder needed to be honoured. We got the green light from Laurence (Creative Lead on Alien Conquest) and LEGO and the rest is history.
