Kurt Vinnedge (vinn) has posted a few great spaceships this week and these two are well worth sharing. The first is this A-8 SSIC Cobra, which features a very functional looking cockpit and sensor/weapons array as well as lovely angling up and back toward the engines.
The second, the ASSIN-9 Tiger Moth, is an equal beauty with similar livery, but its highlight for me is the way he’s built the engines in a ‘V’ going off to the sides from the cockpit. The most subtle, yet effective, feature is the little bits of red peaking out from under a radar dish covering the cockpit. Angry beady little red eyes.
If you want to see these in person, Kurt will be taking them to Brickfair near Washington, D.C.
I love the nostalgic feel of this rendition of the stereotypical New York City train car diner. The esthetic that Nathan has worked out is perfect. I want to go in and order a burger. Gotta love those curved windows too!
I love well-crafted interior and I have been a Sherlockian since I first read the stories as a kid So this scene by Peter Reid grabbed me in a big way. The use of sand-red for the walls was an excellent choice and the room simply oozes Victorian charm. I haven’t gotten one of the Sherlock collectible figs yet but I can’t wait.
After building a creation that uses real water, Aaron Amatnieks (akama1_lego) sets out to do what no one has ever done – to use fire in a Lego creation, and I’m not talking about flame pieces. Kids, don’t try this at home!
Seasonal LEGO sets can be hard to find if you miss the narrow window in time when they’re available, so it’s nice to get a chance to pick them up again if time got away from you the first time around. Thankfully, Amazon.com seems to have found a batch of 10199 Creator Winter Toy Shop sets buried in their warehouse.
Sure, we’re four months away from Christmas, but I doubt you’ll get a chance to complete your LEGO holiday town again, so pick them up while they’re still available online.
