This spinning LEGO blacklight show is really meant to be seen in person. Video hardly does it justice, and phone camera stills aren't much better. But what you do see here is entertaining enough that I'm sharing it anyway. In person, the tree colors change with spin rate, which here reaches 550 RPM in 7 steps. Around 300 RPM, the orange and green start mixing to yellow. By 550 RPM, you see a completely yellow tree encircled by blue and white rings -- the white coming from mixing the yellow with the blue. (Additive color-mixing rules apply.) The small 3-bladed propellers are worthless for boat propulsion, but they really shine for their size under blacklight. Minifig heads emit the blue. The tree holds its shape and balance reasonably well at top speed. The tolerable wobble peaks at intermediate speeds. I'd love to report that the inverted tree works as a spinning top. But centrifugal force would surely rip it apart long before it reached operating speed. Besides, air resistance would quickly bring it down.
Since oil has proven to be an effective weapon against the Algus, the Council of Barqa has decided to set fire to a number of tar pits despite the economic implications. The black oily smoke has proven to be effective in deterring the Algus and reverse the effects of their weather manipulation, of which one effects are that it has been snowing in Kaliphlin. Together with the other measures used throughout Historica to fight the Algus, the hopes and prayers of the people of Kaliphlin is that these frosty invaders will retreat to their frozen hell in the north once again. I would like to claim the following UoP credit for this build: Forced perspective [General Building (Other Techniques)] Photo spoilers: The lighting of the fires was accomplished by using a blacklight and a long exposure time, as you can see in the photo below. Since using only the blacklight makes all the other colors strange, I also mixed it with a bit of flash illuminating the other parts. The hard part was to find a suitable mix between enough blacklight to light the fires and enough flash to not make all the other bricks too purple or blue.
