    LEGO Ideas. Caswell Point Turned down.

    Lego Ideas... more like Lego Space. It started off pretty good with the first 10 or so sets, which actually looked like the idea that was send in. They change it up way too much nowadays.
  2. Yeah, that's not too hot looking, very stubby.
  3. Can't find it, guess it will be revealed soon anyways.

    [RESTORED] LEGO 6286 - Skull's Eye Schooner

    She's looking for a display case, but sadly enough i can't find a size, as she measures 66cm x 23cm x 49cm My current display cabinet has room on top, but it's limited to 76cm x 37cm, and i don't want the display case on top to overhang. doesn't have anything i'm looking for. They either have a really large one 78cm x 26x x 52cm, which will overhang on the side If i mod a little hoever and remove the rowing boat and lower the highest flag, i can get the size down to 63cm x 23cm x 46.5cm, which means can work. It's a shame they don't offer something like 70cm x 26cm x 52cm.

    Cheers! I guess then they only have for it. Which would overhang by 2 cm on the front on my current display cabinet...dang it :(

    Does anyone have measurements (in centimeters) of the actual ship build, because it looks really tall and i want to see if has a case for it.
  8. After more than 20 years being a shipwreck in storage bins she's finally restored into her full glory! The white and grey pieces had a hydrogenperoxide bath for roughly 6 hours, including the printed pieces. The sails are in great condition as they had been stored in between the manual at the bottom of a pile of other manuals. Funny how i found this harder to build than a modern set, because they don't tell you which pieces you need, and you basically have to compare the previous image for differences ^^
  9. Does anyone know the dimensions of the actual ship build.

    Your First Pirate Set!

    Mine was either the Shipwreck 6296 or Eldorado 6276. Still own them both, but scattered across multiple boxes with parts. I did find some pieces related to them the past days, as i been getting the Skulls Eye Schooner together, which i got back in the 90s when we were on a holiday elsewhere in the country with the entire family.
  11. Been getting the pieces together for Shooner and Wild West sets, been great zoning out and forgetting what's happening outside my walls.

    Resurrecting the Black Skull

    Been in the process of resurrecting her myself, found all the parts except one of the Blue Laterns, which i had to order on Bricklink. Found that some pirates had cracked arms and torso pieces, but i was lucky the Black Skull wasn't my only pirate set, so i had some duplicates to replace them with. Next step is to wash all pieces and giving the White and Grey pieces a peroxide treatment. Also ordered a salad spinner to get rid of most water before letting them dry naturally. Lucky my sales are in great condition, as i had them stored between the manual underneat a truckload of other manuals, so they're super flat. (On another note, i also found all my Wild West (Cowboy Tag on Bricklink) sets from 1996. Seems i own all of them except the small 6790 polybag. They're in GREAT condition still, just need a wash as well) I got Eldorado Fortress as well, which i may restore as well, but i noticed i need some more replacement parts for that, nothing that's not available today though.
  13. I would like this for nostalgia reasons, but i have no space for it. Instead i tumbled over my boxes of Lego to build 6286 again, which has been in pieces for over 20 years, and once rebuild i have no space for xD

    LEGO Creator Expert 10271 Fiat 500

    Finished mine yesterday, cute little model. The roof and basket are really nice details to give the car more visual interest. I did have some scratches on the hubcabs which is a little annoying, so i ordered some new ones via Bricks n Pieces. Another thing i noticed is the 1x8s in light yellow (in the doors) are a bit darker in shade than all other bricks. You don't really notice this on display, but it's definitely visible in close range during broad daylight.
