The travels of Sir Wilfred Sutherland

Recommended Posts

Allow me to introduce one of my favourite minifigs, Wilf.  He started off life as a normal CMF explorer who I thought looked good with the Lego camel so I started taking the odd picture of him while out and about when I was living in Oman.  While road tripping round Oman with my best friend Wilf soon developed a personality of his own as the classic late 19th/early 20th century eccentric British gentleman adventurer with a love for travel, exploring and above all gin.  I have finally got round to starting an Instagram account to document Wilf's travels in Oman the United Arab Emirates and beyond.  As well as outdoor photos I am hoping to make some MOCs of Wilf's life, adventures and the other characters in his life.  Check him out at wilf_the_lego_explorer, I will try and update his travels here as well.  That's enough from me, I will allow the great man to properly introduce himself.


"Good evening people of Eurobricks, my name is Sir Wilfred Sutherland, 13th Lord of Strathbottom, late of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.  It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance, please feel free to call my Wilf.  I would also like to introduce you to my faithful camel Omar who is my constant companion as we travel the deserts of Arabia in search of the native people, a bit of excitement and wherever possible a good gin.  I hope you will join my friends and I as we go about our adventures and maybe one day I will introduce you to my beloved wife Penelope and the great Highland estate of Strathbottom.  I wish you all a pleasant evening and I shall bid you good night as I believe my manservant has found a nice refreshment for me."
