A Patriotic Ford Mustang GT – 2011 Independence Day

July 4, 2010

Happy 4th of July to all my fellow Americans. 🙂

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. 😀

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. 😉

“All But Four”

December 1, 2008

Okay, so I’m in a group called LUGNuts on Flickr that is devoted to all things automotive. Each month they have a different building challenge that has to do with building some kind of vehicle. This month’s challenge “All But Four . . .” is a fun and unusual challenge, it asks us to make a vehicle of some sort, but it can’t have four wheels. Any other configuration is fine, just not four. I immediately thought that this was a cool idea and threw the Trio 1 together.

Trio 1

I look forward to see what other cool concepts will come out of this.

Christmas Contest at

November 29, 2008


Well, I knew it was about time for someone to have a Christmas-themed contest. FBTB, one of the best well known LEGO Star Wars sites announced their Christmasification Contest.

There’s two categories for you to build in-

Christmasify a Star Wars vehicle! It can be a starfighter, speeder, or even a capital ship. Size matters not. As long as it’s minifig scale and captures a Christmas feel (or other holidays of the season, if you want to Hannukaficate or Kwanzadizzle it). Maybe it’s a reindeer drawn A-Wing, a festive TIE Fighter, or a snowman AT-AT (Frosty the Planet Wrecker) or a sleigh-style landspeeder. Have fun!

Holiday vignette! Include at least one movie character, no bigger than a 12×12 base, and a height limit of 1 foot. The vignette needs to capture a Star Wars and holiday feel, and can be as serious or as humorous as you like. Again, HAVE FUN.

The last day for submissions is DECEMBER 20th, and judging/voting will occur immediately afterwards.

It will be interesting to see what comes out of this one. Reasonably Clever’s Spooky Star Wars contest garnered some really cool Halloween models. One of my favorites was Raxor’s Imperial Candy Corn Destroyer.


Hopefully there will be some really cool models that come out of this contest. To find out more information check out their contest thread. 😉
