    Hi everyone, there are just a few hours left to cast your votes in the LEGO IDEAS "Do You Want To Go To The Seaside" contest. If you've not voted already I'd be very grateful if you could check out my entry and give it your vote if you like it. The model is called Seaside Memories and is inspired by my childhood trips to the seaside.

    Glad you like it. Thanks a lot. The minifigs will be having an even happier time by tomorrow if this one gets the most votes and wins the contest.

    Thanks very much, I'm glad you like it. Yes these kind of traditional beach huts seem to have had a resurgence in popularity over the last few years and apparently there is a waiting list for people desperate to buy them. They certainly do have a lot of charm and character. Anyway thanks a lot, I'm glad you like the model.

    Hi everyone I wanted to share my latest creation called "Seaside Memories". It's a little beach scene inspired by my childhood holidays at the British Seaside. The model contains less than 250 bricks and is built on a 16 x 16 plate. I've included 2 traditional beach huts and striped deck chairs, sandcastles, a picnic on the sand and much more. Everything you need for a fun day out at the beach. The beach huts both feature simple interiors details. I entered this model in to a recent LEGO IDEAS contest to design a seaside themed set. I'm really pleased to say that today it has been chosen as one of the 15 finalists in the contest. It's now down to a public vote to decide the winner and if this model wins it will be made in to a future gift with purchase LEGO set. If you like the look of the model then I'd be hugely grateful if you could give it your vote on LEGO IDEAS. Voting is open until 25th May. Anyway thanks for checking out my latest MOC and feel free to let me know what you think.

    Leaks of the new creator Ferris Wheel and Space shuttle are now online. They look pretty good, especially the shuttle. One of the alternate builds of the ferris wheel looks as if it is a fairground dodgem car ride. Can't make out what the third build is.

    Thanks a lot for supporting it on Ideas. Thanks very much. I was really pleased it made it to 5K so quickly. Actually it's almost at 6000 now. Thanks. I have thought about designing a railway station before. Maybe that will be my next project.

    [LEGO Ideas] Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

    A great design. But why has it vanished from Lego Ideas?

    There was a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory project on Ideas. It was doing well with over 6000 votes I think, and was close to the top on the homepage. Just noticed it has vanished from Lego Ideas. Anyone know why?

    Thanks very much snaillad, I agree open back designs can work well to show off the interiors. My main reason for doing that was because I didn't want this to be associated with modular buildings. I'm hoping that might give it a better chance on LEGO IDEAS. Thanks very much. Thanks a lot for supporting it. It's almost at 5000 votes now. I put it on exactly 2 weeks ago so I'm really pleased with how quickly it's gaining votes. Thanks very much. Glad you like it, and no I won't stay away so long in future. Thanks.

    Looks really lovely. I love the colouring and the tiled patterned floor. Also as other have mentioned, using the backs of of 1x1 tiles for the wall texture gives a very nice effect.
  15. Looks great. Just proves you don't need a huge amount of space to create a decent city display.
