    Current WIP is a modernized #6646



    I still need to add the side pipes and printed tiles that the set came with. Those are in an incoming BL order.

    Finally finished:

    Lovely jet, good size and accommodates minifigs very nicely.

    I like the jet. Very cool.

    After seeing @bandit778 Speederbike piloted BMW and having gained a constraction Jango Fett in a recent FB bargain haul. It seemed the perfect solution to a cramped display shelf....
    [snip]
    Surely the endgame here is a constraction fig of Obi Wan on the BMW 1200 for that true Long Way Round/Down vibe? Maybe if someone has the skills they can make a custom Ewan McGregor fig using Obi Wan's head and other parts?

    The head from #75109 and the body and legs from #75116 would do the job and would probably look quite good. Not sure how you would do Charlie Boorman though.

    ^Do the parts exist to make the motorcycle in red?
    As for Charlie himself, the best feasible head might come in the form of an old Luke figure I guess!

    Ran out of space to store unbuilt sets, so building Star Wars ship this week and taking down other built sets to make room to display the new ones.

    Also, found out there is enough space under the living room sofa to store several sets in Ziploc bags.

    Forgot to enter my brickheadz into the competition, but they would've stood no chance.  I made the barbarian and archer from clash of clans.

    #5004932 My Travel Companion is a minifig with a few accessories, but I did snap something together. The passport booklet has a lot of cute minifig in real world photos. Most of it's beach or fishing themed so I put it with my Ocean collection. Looking forward to getting #60153 Fun at the Beach to go with it.

    #5004936 Iconic Cave is 2 figs already assembled. Not sure how to classify that. Cool little set but the figures look a bit cheap.

    --

    @sid3windr I don't think brick separatators would work on tiles. Is the flat end enough of a wedge? Sometimes I've used a non sharp letter opener for tiles.

    I use brick separators on tiles regularly. That's what the thin tapered end is for.

    ^^ Yep, that's exactly what the other end is for, works wonders, and fits into the "with groove" part of the tiles ;)

    I had a good birthday recently, so got a buncha stuff after a dry spell of rebuilds and mocs.

    Just finished 60160 Jungle Mobile Lab and 60161 Jungle Exploration Site, as well as the 75902 Mystery Machine (part of my 'Iconic Vehicles and their teams' collection) 

    Working on 42043 Arocs B-version build (finished the cab, working on rear axle assembly), and a Lewis and Clark vignette using a Tribal Girl for Sacajawea, a red canoe, a brown bear (Lewis was the one who officially described the grizzly bear), a revolutionary war soldier for Lewis, and a modified Wiley Fusebot for Clark. I wanted to do the keelboat but don't have the right parts.

    Built #60151 that I picked up a couple of months ago in a Sainsburys sale and had forgotten about....

    ....its nice, but I was comparing it to some of the other City trucks I have and its lacking a little in details. Compared to the cab of #3221 it feels a little basic. But it was a fun build and gave us a chance to watch some Top Fuel drag racing to explain the Christmas  tree starting lights. The dragster is hopefully going to get stretched out by a stud in length to make it a V8 as well. And that wheelie bar needs some work as I can't get the front wheels high enough off the ground from a hard launch!

    Does an A4 sheet count as a plaque?


    You're gonna need a bigger boat.

    (But to answer your question - no.  It must be a black sticker that is susceptible to that one frustrating crease or bubble.)

    Part 1 of a replica of #4000001 done. I knew I had to start building it after seeing it at the LEGO House. Even if I'm still missing 4 pieces... better get on that Bricklink thing again.

    I bought GE on eBay a few months back and was of mixed emotions when it arrived fully assembled.  I haven't had a chance to disassemble and experience the build yet, but it looks beautiful with my modular setup.  One of my favorites.

    Corner Deli modular starts this weekend...

    Built the Kylo Ren TIE Fighter last night. I bought it on Force Friday 2, but waited while I wrapped up putting together a 2000 piece Star Wars puzzle. I completed the puzzle, fearing that I was missing pieces, but turned out to be fine. The TIE Fighter is decent sized, but looks very cool when assembled.

    Knocked over my modified S16 Rogue army. rearranged the figs as I picked them up and put them back. also inventoried my list of modifications. I had spears/pikes sticking out for a more realistic look, but standing them up allows me to fit more figs more neatly. only a few more and I can fill a 32x32 baseplate.

    @Boardshorts85 For official sets, I'm more interested in displaying and playing than building, so I'd consider that a bonus. Was it disassembled at all? Sometimes I take apart a few things for more compact storage.


  • Boardshorts85Boardshorts85 ChicagoMember Posts: 175
    @KingAlanI - a few pieces like the ice cream stand up front fell off in transport, but everything else was fully assembled and bubble wrapped by level.  Hats off to the seller, it was brilliantly packaged.  Eventually I'll take it apart and learn from the build techniques.... eventually.

    @Boardshorts85 about accessories falling off - @SumoLego sold me a #10234 and left it assembled, but took down the lampposts - like that but unintentional?

    I had problems keeping those silly lamppost on the set when it was stationary!

    After spending most of the last week breaking down and sorting I was allowed to build 2 bags from my son's Turbo Tank. Putting on the wheels got a bit repetitive but bag 5 was fun. Looks very sturdy!

    I was going to wait until I had a few more of The Lego Ninjago Movie sets before I built any of them but I had a dragon itch that needed scratching and I cannot remember which box I put the older Ninjago sets in (more like I couldn't be arsed to move boxes about to find them) so as it was near the top of the pile #70612 was it.
    One bag and four stickers in, what I thought was going to be a fairly relaxed build is taking ages as all the stickers are highly visable and I really don't want to mess them up. Lots of lovely sand green pieces though.

    Picked up the Temple of Airjitzu (I like the Japanese architecture), The Old Fishing Store and the Winter Train Station (as well as three halloween sets). I hadn't purchased much for a while but that Old Fishing Store will look great in a Halloween/Scooby Doo type display.

    Anyone know of any custom Scooby Dumb or Scrappy Doo figs? Also looking for Simpsons customs.

    I don't, but I'm with you on looking for more Scooby Family members. Keeping my fingers crossed for a Hanna-Barbera CMF line somewhere down the road. Probably get arthritis...

    @KingAlanI The lampost may have been one that was taken off intentionally, but the rest was just misc pieces that came dislodged - one of the two planters by the entry, the ice cream stand, the mailbox, a couple of the flags at the second level, and a few of the interior assemblies came dislodged.  But all in all, everything was there so its all good!

    @bandit778 you forgot sore fingertips. I'm feeling the pain because I was working on disassembling 10234 tonight. :P
  • MaffyDMaffyD West YorkshireMember Posts: 2,531

    ^ Disassembly is always harder than assembly - it's like the bricks 'want' to be together.

    That makes me a little sad about the sets I put back into boxes... :-(

    Why not just let the Scout Trooper ride the dragon?

    Give the boy a chance, they look silly enough being made to wear bright white armour in a forest environment without looking like he's pushed the kids out of the way on a funfair ride. :)

    City Hall for my Winter Village. Was inspired by the decorative lantern in the background of a pic I send a friend of the Winter Village Trainstation:
