Noddy strikes the cord of love

Karwik (aka Noddy) conjures the romantic atmosphere of a small intimate cafe called the Two Hearts Cafe, complete with bikes as expected.

This is the third time I blogged Noddy in what seems like such a short time frame, but his recent vignettes are so sentimental and nostalgic. It’s soft of me to say that, but one’s gotta take a break from all the space shooters and war-bots once in a while.


Grave Digger model by Misterzumbi

The highly familiar Misterzumbi has brought out another great vehicle (car? truck? monster???), the famous Grave Digger. The model is 100% pure LEGO, even the stickers (although they may be pushing the definition). It’s worth noticing the high level of detail in the shock absorbers and the rod and hand structure for the base.

I think this model also has the best photography I’ve seen from Misterzumbi and possibly the best I’ve seen of LEGO ever.

...the greatest form of flattery?

Lately I’ve been having a bit of trouble getting myself motivated to build (mainly due to a highly messy Lego room). In order to remedy this I decided to make a couple of projects broadly imitating other builders’ styles. So…

Pigeon gunship

The Iron Reich-esque “Pigeon” was my attempt to imitate Keith Goldman’s amazing Reich style.

NWAAF Gannet

NWAAF Gannet was an attempt to borrow stylistic elements from Peter Morris and Nnenn to make a starfightery starfighter.

Neither are quite “cover versions” but both were fun to try. I may even continue it to three…

The Ballad of Reading 060L

0-6-0 LEGO steam train by Cale Leiphardt

Well since Josh trumped me on “Lady” I better respond… Cale Leiphardt presents this lovely Reading B4a steam shunter. The stickers are very high quality too. I’m not sure I’ve blogged Cale here before but he has an impressive range of 8-wide steam trains made out of Lego. His style is quite original and highly successful.
