    Being in my shed building with my 3 beautiful Grandchildren. Life gets NO better.

    The challenge of building a decent MOC of my own.

    Should you be having trouble sleeping you'll find reading about my journey into LEGO will almost certainly help. You'll find it in About Me.

    Sweet Dreams.

  1. Awesome build. The level of detail of the engine is very impressive.
  2. STUNNING! Your attention to detail is amazing as is the quality of the chromework. Excellent work.
  3. That's very kind. Thank you. I'll PM you a pic or two.
  4. Beautiful. Could this be what the official set should have been all along...
  5. Really cute and full of character. Great work.
  6. What a wonderfully romantic build. Gilly and I have been married 25yrs in August and, with your permission, I'd love to build this to have as a centre piece on our table at the celebration party.
  7. Very cool. Very interesting. Pleased you used Storm Troopers rather than hamsters
  8. Oh Boy. What a beautiful build. And that from a man who dislikes pink with a passion.
  9. Thank you. It took a while for me to get the jist of the Brickheadz look and whilst I'm still not entirely sure they completely adhere to the Brickheadz aesthetic I'm happy with them. I just hope they do both PAW Patrol and the Brickheadz theme justice.
  10. This wouldn't be out of place in an art gallery. It's a beautiful build. I've long been an admirer of your work and have alway looked on, envying your building skills. Oh well, I'll just keep chugging along hoping (albeit a forlorn hope) that one day I might be this good.
  11. Nice build Bart. Thank you for posting the instructions.
  12. Hi I've recently built some of the characters from the hugely popular childrens television programme PAW Patrol. In case you're not familiar with PAW Patrol, each of the puppies has a PupPack in which they carry various gadgets unique to that character which they use on there many adventures. I've tried to incorporate these, or at least my interpretation of them, into the build of each character. The inspiration to build these came from our beautiful 4yr old Grandaughter Penelope who, when asked what she'd like me to build for her, said Skye, her favourite PAW Patrol team member. As the build came out pretty well, Penelope loved it, so I thought I'd build (stud.io) the rest of the team. Shortly after thought I'd have a go at building them Brickheadz style and it's these I'd like to show you. The characters are: Ryder Ryder is a young, precocious 10 year old boy. He is the 1st member of the PAW Patrol team and is the team's leader. During an emergency, he uses his PupPad to summon the pups on missions to help the citizens of Adventure Bay. Chase Chase is a German Shepherd puppy and is a Police and traffic dog. He helps keep the peace and in the event of problems on the roads uses his PupPack megaphone to warn drivers & his torch to help direct the traffic. He also helps find missing people and animals. Marshall Marshall is a Dalmatian puppy and is the teams firefighter. His job is to put out fires using his PupPack water cannon. The water comes from the tanks on top of his Pup Pack. Rocky Rocky is a mongrel puppy and is the PAW Patrol team's Eco Warrior. He collects items to recycle, reuse or repair to fix broken objects. To help him in his endevours he uses his PupPack grabber claw and screwdriver. One pups rubbish is this pups treasure. Rubble Rubble is a Bulldog pup and the PAW Patrol team's construction specialist. He helps with work such as repairing roads and fixing damaged buildings. To do this he uses his PupPack digger meaning no job is too big. Skye Skye is a femail Cockapoo puppy who uses the jet pod tipped wings in her PupPack to enable her to fly and provide an aerial view of emergencies. With the binocular-like lenses in her goggles she can keep an eagle eye on things from high above the ground. Tracker Tracker is a puppy whose large ears give him excellent hearing. With such good hearing it's no surprise he can locate & rescue lost people especially those who venture too deep into the jungle. To help him during rescues he carries a multitude of small tools in his PupPack. Zuma Zuma is a Chocolate Labrador puppy who, with the help of his PupPack scuba tanks, carries out underwater rescues in the event of an emergency. Everest Everest is a female Husky and is the teams mountain rescue pup. She uses her PupPack grappling hook to help her scale the trecherous mountain slopes. I'd appreciate your comments and constructive criticsm.
  13. I've just heard the sad news that Brian Cant, the voice of Camberwick Green and of a generation, passed away today. Thsnk you Brian for being a specisl part of my chidhood. You'll live on in the hearts of adults and children for generations to come. May you rest in peace my friend.
  14. Yes, I agree with you, you've got everything right. If you don't mind I may well borrow a few of your ideas for my 'bug. Great work
