2018 building contest - April: Lester's Travels

TheOriginalSimonBTheOriginalSimonB Felixstowe Member Posts: 945
Another month, another chance to get those creative juices flowing...

As we know from Series 18, the minifigures are throwing an anniversary party in Billund and Lester has been invited.  But how is he going to get there?

He has to get from London to Billund, so your mission this month is to help him on his way.  You can build whatever you like so long as it relates to his journey.  A brick built map, a vehicle to get him all (or part of the way), vignettes from different parts of the trip, his passport photo, tickets...  Whatever idea grabs you.

Hopefully there will be something to suit every style of builder and we will see lots of different entries.

The Rules:

As usual, this should be a new creation and not something you have posted online before.

Size does not matter this month, so long as you have time to finish your entry by the end of April.

You do not have to own a Lester figure to enter - he doesn't need to feature in the entry (especially if you don't want to build in mini-figure scale) or stand-ins are just fine.

Max two pictures per entry (but feel free to link to others hosted off-site).

Multiple entries allowed, but each to its own post please.

I will announce the winner as early into November May as I can...  Obviously the more entries we see the longer it will take me to judge.

The prize will depend on the winning entry and what the winner happens to own already (keep those "owned by" lists on the main site up to date folks!) but suffice it say that if you don't already have him there will be a Lester available...

Good luck, and have fun building.

    Ooh, this'll be fun! Plus I have a Lester thanks to @BooTheMightyHamster, so I'm all set. :)

    ^ I like how you did the cliffs, simple yet effective!

    Will definitely be taking part now that the Easter hols are almost over.

    Just a heads up as I was browsing last night then saw this thread today: For anyone who doesn't have a Lester he's available at bricks and pieces, minus his face(good enough for me).

    As someone who has recently rediscovered her childhood love of the wonderful brick I thought this sounded like fun (hopefully I have mastered adding photographs).

    I took inspiration from often the most overlooked part of a journey but as a person more comfortable with both feet on the ground this is actually the part I find most fun.

    Here we can see lovely Lester as he travels through the airport. From making sure his luggage is within regulation, through check in and into the inevitable HUGE queue. Next it's a stroll via security with a quick stop at passport control and back out the other side at the baggage claim carousel.

    He had such a fab time at the airport that he didn't want to leave. (Unfortunately the present he put in the hold got diverted to Luxembourg, so he has to leave the airport to find a gift before he can finally make his way to the party. :D)
