    He cut up Lego for this, that’s kind of lame.

    If you can’t build it with existing bricks, think of another way to solve it.

    I can’t approve any model that contains cut-up pieces unless it was used for lighting.

    That’s your prerogative. Personally I think it’s clever and looks nice. My only criticism would be a suggestion to sand the edges of the teal parts a little more smoothly.

    Hooray for brickmodding.

    And while I’m thinking about it: I obviously don’t have anything against modding Lego, but this mod in particular is arguably purist: it’s two segments of 7mm ribbed hose, the cutting of which is actually /required/ in at least one Lego set.

    Every single model at LEGOLAND parks ever contains butchered, drilled, sawed, twisted, mangled, glued, speared, skewered or otherwise destroyed LEGO pieces. Doesn’t stop many people marveling at their ingenuity.

    You’re right (all of you). I actually didn’t see it was ribbed hose, just the cutting, should have looked better. It is supported by instructions so I guess that would make it ok.

    Legoland park models are different, they are mostly scuptures and meant to be in rough weather. For some reason I expect the rest of the world to keep it ‘pure’. Nathan Sawaya also cuts pieces, but mainly because it’s easier chopping off parts with a chisel than tearing a model apart brick by brick.

    Fair warning: don’t ever peek in my photostream. ;)
