    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 or if viewing on a mobile Activity - About Me.

    Sweet Dreams.

    I'm not surprised you and the owner are happy with it. If it were for me I'd be doing cartwheels! (Oh the irony )

    MOD McGregor Replica from 21307 Caterham

    Good job. I like the blue & grey far more the the set's original yellow & black. Looks great

    [MOC] Hagrid Brickheadz

    That picture of Hagrids internals is amazing. It’s almost a travesty that the finished model gives no clue as to the work that went into creating the complexity beneath.

    You've gotten a lot done in 3 days Edwin but as for what she's going to be, the mystery continues.....

    Thank you for the explanation Erik. After I read your post I watched a few 8258 videos on YouTube and can see what you mean. Watching the linkage doing its thing, it seems it’s brilliance lies in it’s simplicity. So, with cooler weather building can now resume. With angles correct of course.

    It seems we’ve gotta get those pesky angles right. I had an idea that might be the case but thought it best to ask anyway. Thank you for your very kind offer to show the results of fitting the part at the incorrect angle but really, there’s no need to go all that trouble. I’ve got it now. Yes, I did mean 90°. My bad. Thank you for taking the time to help. Much appreciated.

    With much cooler weather forecast towards the end of the week it’s time to start preparing for building to restart. Whilst looking ahead through the instructions I came to a stage that when I built this last time took almost two days (it’s that stubbornness thing again ). Not wanting history to repeat itself I thought I’d ask for a little advice. This may stupid question but does the angle of the 2853 Crankshaft (arrowed) and black assembly have to be at the exact angles shown? I had the devils own job last time trying to get it as shown but kept getting it 45° out. If I do the same this time is it going to cause problems later on? I don’t want to get the build completed only to find out that the range of movement is restricted. Any advice would be very much appreciated. You just might help me keep my sanity. Thank you.

    LEGO BrickHeadz Wishlist and Ideas

    I’ve always thought the characters from Paw Patrol would be rather nice in Brickheadz form

    [MOC] Brickheadz PAW Patrol

    These have now had their time on LEGO Ideas. Although they didn’t do very well they did better than I expected them to so a very big thank you to those of you who took the time to support the project. When I get time I’ll take another look at them an see where they can be improved. I’d welcome any suggestions. Thanks again.

    Like pagicence, I thought yacht and research vessel. Whatever they are I'm very much looking forward to watching them evolve.
  12. Thank you Jim for more excellent reviews. I'd only got the 42082 on my 'to buy' list but you've convinced me to add the 42081. One thing though. Your photos are outstanding but please just once can one be out of focus, badly framed or have other such defects. Your're making my already bad pictures look as if they were taken by a 2yr old with their first toy camera .

    Great to hear. I know you've had your struggles over the last few years but this is really great news. They couldn't have gotten a better person for the job. Hope all goes well and you enjoy your new role.
