About Josh

Josh is 30+ years old and has more Lego than he has hair. Which really isn't saying much. He builds mostly medieval creations, but dabbles in other genres. He is also a father and uses his kids as an excuse to buy Lego. That justification isn't working as well as it used to, so if you can think of a better justification, feel free to contact him. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Josh's Brickshelf gallery gets messier and messier. Josh also has a Flickr gallery, if you care about such things. He goes by the name "floodllama" there. If you wonder why he goes by "floodllama", you've obviously never owned a llama in flood. Josh feels sorry for you.

Dippy the Diplodocus

Víctor Martínez Nouvilas (MolochBaal) has created a beautiful copy of the copy of Dippy, a diplodocus skeleton found in Wyoming in 1899. Plaster copies were donated to a number of Natural History Museums all over the world. Víctor built this to celebrate the 100th birthday of the Museum of Natural Science in Madrid’s copy of Dippy, which was finished on December 1st, 1913.
