LEGO Orchid

May 29, 2013


My fellow LUGOLA member Tim Inman is usually known for his car or minifig scale building models. So when I saw this, I just had to post it.

I love how he took the purple minifig cape (okay, lots of minifig capes ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) and turned them into flowers.

He’s not the first person to do this, but I think its the first orchids I’ve seen done like this. I think what really makes it for me is how the stem bends and the technic ties to the “wooden” pole.

Miniland Scale Giraffe

November 11, 2010

When Tim Goddard decided he’d try his hand at Miniland Scale building he didn’t make a simple person or build a car in that scale. No, he decided to do a Giraffe.



Creating something of that detail and complexity with wonderful articulation to boot shows that even a Miniland “novice” can create something awesome on his first try. Of course he is a great builder, so its not really a surprise. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Great job Tim!

A Patriotic Ford Mustang GT – 2011 Independence Day

July 4, 2010

Happy 4th of July to all my fellow Americans. ๐Ÿ™‚

Peter Blackert, who is known for his skill at building vehicles, has created a very patriotic Ford Mustang GT especially decorated with stars and stripes for America’s Independence Day. The funny thing is that he is Australian. ๐Ÿ˜€

Happy 4th July to all in the USA.

Greetings and God Bless on the anniversary of the Independence of your Nation.

My gift this year is a 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 Coupe decorated with the Stars and Stripes.

Even if you are not American, you can appreciate Peter’s design and LEGO model building skills. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A Galaxie of Holiday Cheer!

A Galaxie of Holiday Cheer!

Somehow I forgot to post this last month and even though it’s a tad late I couldn’t pass up on Lino Martins’ Christmas Galaxie

You may remember a bike featuring Santa Claus and Natasha, his sexy Russian mail order bride, from last Christmas. Well this year theyโ€™ve acquired a new custom ride; a 1966 Ford Galaxie 500 convertible. Close the hood and red lights will illuminate the engine compartment and can be seen through the unique hood window. A spacious trunk and back seat can be loaded with holiday gifts (or mischievous elves) and gold grille and rims, plus a dark red and dark green color configuration makes this Galaxie Christmasy, yet more sophisticated than your usual bright holiday colors. A classic white interior ties the whole Christmas theme together. The top can be used when transporting holiday cheer in the dead of winter…or it can come off when bringing toys to all the good boys and girls living in warmer climates. Either way, this is one classy cool custom ride! This was built for the Galaxie of Possibilities challenge over at LUGNuts.

A Galaxie of Holiday Cheer!

Both the car and the Galaxie of Possibilities challenge were really clever. The car for its simply elegant color scheme and pure awesomeness, the challenge because LUGNuters were restricted to only one type of car — a โ€™66 Ford Galaxie.

My favorite other entry was Peter Blackert’s Ford Galaxie 1966 Convertible (Modified)

I love the use of the Bionicle blue flame element.

And, if you are interested in it, the 27th Build Challenge…Blockbuster Mission! is currently going on at LUGNuts on Flickr right now. Trust me, its worth a read even if you don’t build cars. ๐Ÿ˜‰

“LEGO” Car

October 29, 2009

As I was scanning the various pictures on Flickr I found this little gem. It’s pretty cool. I don’t know what the story behind this is, but it would be pretty cool to drive around it. ๐Ÿ™‚
