Bletchley Park

A very simple model, but a very special place.

This is the last of the Babylon stations...

An epic TV show. An epic colour scheme for the model ;)

LEGO Caterham

Elegance and eloquence, together in one model.

Gear Guide

Here's a handy reminder image for the relative sizes of various gears.

I used it in the model I shall show on Monday. Unfortunately, I don't have the gears necessary to make my model 100% accurate :(

But that's no the fault of a PNG... obviously.

Casino Royale Movie

When it comes to re-creating classic movies, Star Wars is the obvious one that springs to mind. Which makes it more interesting/impressive/strange that someone would go for the Bond film, Casino Royale.

At least their effort wasn't wasted on something like Die Another Day...

LEGO Hat

Mmmm... LEGO apparel is one thing. A LEGO hat is... well.. weird...

I think the only reason models are pretty is distract from the fact that the clothes are BAD!

(even LEGO ones, sometimes..)

Phoning home - LEGO Punk, before LEGO Punk

Back in 1989, apparently, there were punks. And LEGO punks, who made this working telephone.

Personally, I can't see how the buttons were connected and made to work. But they're resting on the keys below, then it should work.

LEGO Stress Test

37,112

I wanted to post this last week, but got highly distracted, which meant everyone else and his dog has linked to this blog.

But, for those that haven't seen it, here's a machine that plugs (and unplugs) LEGO bricks repeatedly until they no longer cling to each other.

It's a good first draft of a machine, but I suspect that we need a lot more tests, from a lot of different machines, until we get a true figure.

LEGO TARDIS (again)

Tim Fegan built this version of the famous blue box that appeared recently on LEGO Punk. But he had enough bricks to build the whole thing.

Lovely!

Commodore 64

So.. here's the second best home computer from the early 1980's ;)
