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. πŸ˜€

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.

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! πŸ˜€

Off to the Northern CA and Bricks by the Bay

Well my model is finally done! I still can’t post pictures until after tomorrow’s ceremony but the 6ft x 3 ft building is completed. There are a few minor finishing touches I need to do, but I will do those in the morning. Right after the ceremony I’m heading up to Bricks By the Bay. Yay! πŸ˜€

Pending internet service (well actually the cost of the service) at the hotel I will attempt to do some on-site blogging. That is if I’m not too busy hanging out with all my friends. πŸ˜‰

Building a big model

March 28, 2010

If you’ve probably noticed I haven’t been as diligent in doing my daily posts. I try to keep up with all the LEGO news around the world, sharing my favorite models and explaining new techniques. But for the last month or so I have been a little preoccupied with my current commission. I can’t tell you what it is right now, but I will show you a teaser pic:

This is just a small corner naturally and not much for you to go on. One thing I will say is that this model is big, really big. In a couple more weeks, once this is all over I’ll be doing a proper post on what I’ve been up to. I just ask that you be patient with me. As my deadline gets closer I’ll be pretty busy. I won’t be able to post quite as regularly for the next week and a half or so.

And if you are wondering what the saran wrap is for here’s a model building tip for you: its there to keep the glue from getting on the baseplates. πŸ˜‰
