Wayback Excursion: Kalashnikov

Lenny Hoffman was one of the first builders I came across when I discovered the online AFOL community. One of my favorite MOCs of his is the EBKD Kalashnikov. Looking back on it it's not all that amazing. The building techniques are pretty standard these days, it had an excess of studs showing, and the color blocking is less than stellar. But to me, this ship is timeless. It will always be a reminder of my first experience with LUGNET and CSF, seeing the kind of things they built. So if you haven't, spend the time to go through all the steps he documented in building this ship.

No comments:

Occasional driving force of the blog, self-proclaimed Lukas fanboy, and aspiring engineer, Jacob spends too much time building LEGO, not enough time practicing piano, and not nearly enough time doing school. He also enjoys long sentences. In the instance of blogging, he believes in quantity over quality, wherever quantity can be maintained.
One of the cofounders of YSAB, and the founder of YSA, Observing Mike actually being productive is a rare occasion. Mike enjoys making outlandish claims in relation to actually building, pretending he's actually sorting his collection, and making excuses for why he hasn't photographed his MOCs. In his free time he enjoys learning CSS from Spook, photography and poking badgers with spoons.
Occasional builder, occasional blogger, and full-time procrastinator. That's really the only way to describe Dean. He rarely gets anything done, but is a very active lurker. He's probably seen and liked your MOC, but just forgot he had a blog.
Erik is still a teenager.
Lukas is tall, blond, mildly OCD, and doesn't build nearly enough as he would like to, thanks to school. He has a webpage.
Spook (Tim)
The resident codemonkey and graphics person. If something isn't working correctly, it's probably his fault. Fitting to his name, he doesn't post often, but someone has to do this stuff too, right? Spook does build with laygoes, and has his own blog as well.
