I think one of the best things about the online LEGO fan community is the amount of inspiration we give each other. I can think of countless times where upon seeing a model by another builder, I was inspired to have a crack at something similar.
A perfect example of this is Chandler Parker’s 1/100 scale AH-64D Apache, which he posted last week. The amount of detail he achieved at such a small scale is quite frankly amazing.
Upon seeing Chandler’s Apache, Mike Yoder (Phat Mike el Fabricante) decided to build a few for himself. But then in typical Mike fashion he has since gone on a run of building and has now also made a squadron of A-10 Warthogs and some tanks to blast to smithereens.
I am very much looking forward to where Chandler’s influence on Mike takes him next. I think he mentioned something about an AC-130 Spectre Gunship…which would make me a very happy boy :D
EDIT: Just realized I should also point out that Mike’s tanks were somewhat inspired by Pierre E Fieschi’s…this just keeps getting better and better!!
