    I am now blaming my sister to re-introducing me to Lego. She found a 7745 complete train set in her loft of her old house and now it is sitting on my desk. <br /><br />When I'm not trawling through Ebay and Bricklink, I can be found doing some photography or riding a Ducati Monster. NICE!!!

    Review: 8099 Midi-scale Imperial Star Destroyer

    So far I think I've picked the thrusters up about ten times off the floor. But then again, the thrusters on the mamouth ISD don't hold together that well either.

    Review: 8099 Midi-scale Imperial Star Destroyer

    Excellent review. I bought 8099 today and just spent the last hour watching Ferris Bueller and making it. Just thought I would add this picture of the two ISD together.

    Lego picture-taking background/backdrop

    All the above are excellent techniques. I have an infinity curve, photography tent with different coloured backgrounds but no decent flash. I'll have to save up the pennies and not buy and Lego for a month and get a 580EX II flash for the old Canon, or a couple of spotlights. Best thing about taking photos of Lego (or anything you can just adjust without it running away screaming), just experiment with different backgrounds and camera settings until you find the right one for you.

    The what I did today thread ......

    Today I boxed up my train and town lay out. Time to redesign it. My brother appeared this afternoon on his new Yamaha Fazer so I had to take the p**s out of him for buying it!

    LAYOUT: New train Set-Up

    Thanks Beer. I'm down to a half full 50ltr box of bricks now. As Beer said, the Shell service station is set number 6378. I keep finding lots of bricks with those Shelll stickers on from the Idea Books

    What did you buy today?

    Today I have again spent too much money on the dreaded, evil compulsive addiction I have gained every time I go into Tesco, or as in todays case, Tescos did not have much of a choice of Lego so I went into TrU next door and bought; 7195 Ambush in Cairo 3179 Repair Truck 626 & 628 green and grey baseplates

    Good call The police station and petrol stations have both arrived today, so I will knuckle down to some building tomorrow and also find a bigger dust sheet.
