LEGO Sleigh Ride

Sleigh

Jordan Schwartz constantly comes up with unconventional ways to make a model. Who else would combine Duplo and Bionicle in the same model and manage to make it look like neither of them? 😀

This is just a little rustic 19th century sleigh; I built the runners first, using lots of little bits of hose, the PoP/Ringmaster whips and some bars. From there, I built the body… or, more appropriately, stuck the body on [using minifigure hooks.] I’ve struggled with this shape for a long time, and in this case, I found this particular Bionicle mask to be effective. And for a finishing touch, I added what is quite possibly my favorite element, the DUPLO bearskin. I think it adds a nice, warm texture to compliment the minifigure’s fur-wrapped torso and hat.

Here’s hoping his unique building skills will show up in LEGO sets once he starts working as a set designer in Denmark. 😉
