For once the answer is yes.
Ronald Vallenduuk (Duq) has recently added a couple of sets of instructions to Flickr and kindly showed me how to get LPub working again. I actually reverse engineered the seat gondola many years back after seeing a picture of it and coveting it so it’s great to see Ronald making it available to all and sundry.
I used to make more instructions but had to stop for a while due to a problem I had with LPub. With Ronald’s fix I’m back and running so did some instructions for my latest.
Athos just posted pictures of his chateau, and it’s rather striking. The contrast of the walls really jumped out at me. You also have to check out the detailed interior.
Mike Psiaki continues to churn out great additions to his Jurassic Park layout.
His latest is actually inspired by 5935 Island Hopper, from the Adventurers “Dino Island” series.
Here’s Mike’s current lineup of terrible lizards:
In a similar attempt to distract from the ongoing drama, here’s Piglet‘s CSS Turtle:

If you’re not a frequent visitor of MOCpages, then you’re missing out on a fun game called MOCtag invented by Shannon Young. Basically, a builder makes a creation to depict part of a story, then he tags another builder to continue the story with another creation. The game is currently in its fifth installment, with Mark Kelso presenting a humorous comic called Tribal Trouble.
In response to the animals cave racing contest, SlyOwl creates a scene of cave racing in the jungle where animals take part in the precarious game.
Alan Saunders illustrates the moments after Antarctic explorer Lawrence Oates spoke his famous last words. I love the miniature camp in the background.
This could all just be hearsay, but a short article on CoolToyReview.com claims LEGO will be producing sets based upon the upcoming Indiana Jones IV film. Does this mean Johnny Thunder’s adventures are over?
I’m a sucker for archaeologically themed LEGO. As Bruce says, Barbara Werth gets credit for being the first to incorporate the new skeleton horse into a LEGO vignette.
Dennnis Coh is participating in the FBTB Forums R-Wing contest, but what caught my eye was his minifig pilot:
With a great brick-built weapon and excellent color coordination, Dennis’ version of Pippin Reed is smokin’ hot.
(Only after typing up the Technorati tags below did I notice just how much of a mashup this minifig is: With a name and head from Adventurers, built for a Star Wars contest, using an old Spyrius torso, Pippin makes an excellent Space minifig.)
There’s no question Mike Psiaki builds cool stuff. I just wasn’t expecting what I found when I clicked the thumbnail for this Adventurers-inspired truck:
I won’t say anything more so as not to spoil the surprise. ;-)
I blogged Izzo’s ninja mecha a few days ago, but he’s continued posting new mecha since then. Here’s the latest, a steampunk mecha titled “Tin Machine,” driven by none other than the Adventurers theme’s archvillain, Sam Sinister:
