    Happy Shiptember to all. I have had a flurry of large bricklink orders arrive and at least one still on the way in the past couple of weeks. I now look forward to this month more than any other as far as lego building goes. I sort of get a pass in keeping the house more lego dirty than normal (parts everywhere all over the house where they shouldn't be). I have a concept ready to build which has transformed greatly over what I thought I was probably going to build. I like the free form nature of SHIP building more than trying to build a real ship. It is hopefully going to be fun seeing what I totally produce beyond my basic shape. I am really excited to get building today and couldn't contain my excitement. Enjoy your own ship building. You can justify all the money you spent that you shouldn't have by this one contest. Have fun. Build big
  2. Alternating white as a minor color splattered in with brown may achieve the look of those shingles. You know maybe 10 percent white and 90 brown I have been mixing tan and light bluish gray with some old light grays in there too to make wood shingles that look like our weathered houses where I live. I am using layered 1x2 tiles instead of cheese slopes most of the time

    How to create a Flat Top wing element ?

    Tiles are the obvious solution

    Legos become brittle after storage

    Bricks of all kinds exposed to lots of sunlight absolutely become brittle over time
  6. it seems like it is working. just cover the corner up with a long trim piece connected with hinges so the fit and finish looks good

    I need hints to buy retired Lego sets

    Is there a "fake" version of that set? I haven't seen it before if it is out there. Ebay and Paypal really stand behind the consumer so there is no risk of being scammed without recourse by whatever means. That being said, Bricklink is a fantastic resource.

    REVIEW: 71021 LEGO Collectable Minifigures Series 18

    Most fun set ever as costumes are our favorites. Definitely getting a whole box. Splurging and opening a whole box with your loved ones is a great experience. I think the single cop is marketing genius. More people than ever will bite the bullet to buy a whole box. They need to do it more.

    Need advice for bamboo blinds.

    One way I can think of to get the bars to work would be by using lego string on each side individually tied around each bar. The tracks sound easier for sure

    LEGO Pet Peeves

    Perseverating on negative aspects of legos instead of focusing on all the glorious positive parts of the hobby.

    Lack of original themes

    Anybody can think up a new Lego creation and build it. Imagination is a wonderful thing.

    General MOC-Discussion, WIP-Help, and Teaser Thread

    I was thinking about how much fun participating in the Shiptember event is. Would others be interested in building water based craft (don’t have to be any particular size) over the course of a month just to share with one another. It doesn’t have to be a contest, but it would definitely be a motivation to build. I think it would just promote more building and sharing. I am finding that getting that nudge helps me build faster. Anybody else interested? Obviously I can simply build a ship and share it anytime, but simultaneous group building seems like more fun
