On a Roll

If I blogged everything Peter Morris builds, there wouldn't be room for anything else. But the Eagle is a fine example of his increasingly refined work.



Back on Sunday.

All kinds of interesting

When jehkay posted this fighter a little while ago, I liked it enough, but the fastpacks he's added have me sold.

A LEGOspiracy




I'm seriously considering the idea that at some point, a bunch of Japanese builders got together and agreed to be better than everyone else.

Ziy-9 Xapuri



Adrian Florea hasn't built Space for a little while, but he still has it.

... Military Mornings!

Have a look at the amazing job Aleksander Stein did with his Kamov Ka-66 'Tiger shark':



My favourite part is how awesome it is. But the mid section was a close second.

Little Plastic Death

TFOL McZargald has whipped out yet another in a line of creations of increasing quality.



This is a weaponized version of Chuck's racing mech

Mecha... mornings.

Let's start off this morning with a mean orange spidertank from scouzy.



I have little doubt that there is GITS influence here, which is a very good thing. This angle not only displays the well-placed hoses and sticker on the underside, but also gives a sense for how big this thing really is.

Chapter 82, in Which Jacob Finds a Dead Weasel on the Side of the Road and Breathes Life in it Anew

Check out this battle trike by martinbb:



I've always liked Martin's creations, and this is no exception. I especially like that he included the steering.

If you're looking for some spacey inspiration, check out the CSF Concept Art Gallery... -pool on flickr. Because he was having difficulties with their built-in gallery, Dan Rubin set up a flickr group and invites anyone with science fiction- or steampunk-related inspiration images to add them to the pool. Take a look!

And the blogging starts... NOW

There are nearly two hundred of you still checking here, so thank-you. My internet is better, I'm back from Brickcon, and most of my collection is sorted. Now feels like a good time to post.


(F40PH By Bill Ward)

Brickcon 2008 was great. I met a lot of really cool people, and I saw a lot of neat models. I had some interesting conversations with anyone unfortunate to acknowledge me, until they successfully shook me off during public hours. Some tidbits I learned at my first con:

- The public hours are total chaos, and should be avoided by ducking into one of the "Private Badge Areas" to listen to an interesting presentation.
- The best way to get around during public hours is by striding behind the tables, or, if you're feeling really cocky, in front of them.
- It is much easier to take pictures as a registered attendee than trying to get them from the visitor end of the stick.
- For that matter, consider taking your pictures five minutes before the doors open to the masses. That way, everything will be as ready as possible.

As I sort of promised, and way behind schedule, here are the galleries for the Space and Mecha layouts. Some of the pictures are a bit fuzzy, but I made a point of trying to get a picture of every single model in those categories. Enjoy!

Nnenn builds Sky-fi...again


And it's really quite beautiful.

 
Jacob
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.
Mike
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.
Dean
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
Erik has been through the desert on horse with no name. As a result he has all sorts interesting things to say, and you are welcome to listen if you can understand the somewhat inane babble that sprouts from his mouth. He owns a microwave oven, a custom kitchen, a refrigerator, and even a color TV. Along with his laygo, he spends his time with the people who have been able to tolerate him up to the point where he can call them his friends, as well as this blog. Erik maintains the lifestyle of yesteryear; he still plays his Nintendo 64 and even reads the newspaper (as in the kind printed on paper) from time to time. What a loser.
Now someone get these mutts away from me, you know, I don't find this stuff amusing anymore.
Lukas
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.
