Part Two I've been working for Green Banthas for some time now. I got used to Wellcity and I liked it. My missions weren't hard, I had to drive a lot, but since it's my favourite thing I couldn't complain. I also got some other skills, as locating the target, disarming a person and other things. This was all part of my training for Alliance SpecOps. But it seems I'll have to take a pause - I was called in to the base, because I'm needed for a new mission. I'll learn more about it when I get there. Just a small freebuild to continue the story. Please, judge this.
Alliance was once again defeated by the Empire. Our forces had to flee from Kuat. But, I was also promoted to the SpecOps. They sent me to one of the neutral planets, where I would locate a small hangar. There is waiting a group of mercenaries, who are cooperating with the Alliance. I have to join them and then wait for further orders. Wellcity is just another of billion metropolas in space. But it wasn't hurt by the war so it still looks clean and peaceful. But the group I have to find is waiting for me in the old part of the town. Which is not that clean and peaceful. But still, being on a neutral planet is great. Computer says that the target is just beneath me. Time to land! Please, judge this freebuild.
2014 sees the Isle of Man celebrating it's culture and heritage through a series of events and projects involving the creative arts. This "Island of Culture" theme has inspired me to create a series of Lego models representing places, people and themes linked to the Island's rich history. The models will be small (fitting on a base no larger than 8 x 8 studs) and I hope to create at least one model a month during the year so watch this space!! JANUARY - The Tower of Refuge This is actually an older model that has already been posted on EB so please check out the original post http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=69582 for the background info. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr FEBRUARY - Traditional Manx Cottage A typical Manx stone cottage from the 18/19th century. These can be found all over the Isle of Man and were generally thatched with straw held down with ropes or fishing nets. Inside there were usually 2 rooms; a main living/cooking area and a bedroom, with perhaps more sleeping or storage areas in the roof space. While those cottages still inhabited today have been modernised, in the village of Cregneash (which was the British Isle's first open air folk museum) you can see preserved examples and learn what life was like living in them.

The national dish is said to be "Spuds and Herring". Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Thanks for looking and feel free to comment...
