One small step…

November 6, 2013


This awesome model is by Tyler Clites. I always like to see Tyler’s creations and this is no exception. I can almost see the Earth reflected in the astronaut’s visor. 😀

And the 1×1 round gray tiles are a perfect moonscape!

Apparently this was a commission and it was also a more realistic variation of a model he made last year for MOCathon and Iron Builder competitions.

Houston, We Have a Problem

Its hard to say which one is better. The top one is more dramatic, but the bottom one is playful. But the great thing is that we don’t have to chose, we can like both equally! 😀

The Challenger Seven

the Challenger Seven 01

Like many school children on January 28th, 1986 I was sitting in a classroom watching the Challenger Shuttle as it started its journey into space. Sadly it was not to be a happy ending. Even now, twenty-five years later I can remember that moment like it was yesterday.

Dave & John Xandegar, that father and son model building team, have created a tribute to the seven astronauts that lost their lives that day.

Great job Dave and John for sharing this with us.

Trick or Treat

Somebody had to do it sooner or later, but Matthew Hurt got to it first. 🙂

He used several of the Collectible Minifigures as trick or treaters hunting for candy on all hollows eve.

Trick or Treat

I like how he used the tiles and pumpkin’s heads as candy bags. And the house isn’t too bad either. 😉

Great job Matthew!
