Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick Hot Air Balloon

Created on May 25, 2017 8:39 am

This week’s model, Ryan’s beautiful rainbow coloured hot-air balloon, is a bit different in that Ryan built it purely for himself and just for the challenge of it! Building a pattern into a complex compounding curving shape like a balloon in LEGO is about as hard as it gets. Ryan started by getting the shape […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick Pompeii

Created on May 18, 2017 8:14 am

mrkFor this week we’re flying back in time to the 3rd LEGO® build we have done for Sydney University’s Nicholson Museum- LEGO® Pompeii! Being a museum piece we couldn’t show the city being destroyed, because we wouldn’t be able to show the history of the city, so we chose to depict the city the moment […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick Ming Vase

Created on May 11, 2017 12:56 pm

For this week’s Throwback Thursday we’re looking at a very different type of model – a model Ryan had to build live! Ryan was exhibiting a few of his big models at the Brisbane Ekka show in 2012 and they wanted Ryan to build something while he was there, so he chose to build a […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® Brick Didgeridoos

Created on April 27, 2017 10:11 am

Back in 2012 LEGO Australia celebrated it’s 50th Anniversary in Australia with the “Festival of Play” which included a visit to Australia by LEGO’s CEO. It was decided to build something distinctly Australian as gifts to the LEGO group VIPs and Ryan chose to build LEGO brick versions of the iconic Aboriginal instrument -the Didgeridoo! […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® Brick MCG

Created on April 6, 2017 8:31 am

To celebrate the opening of Wonders of the World in Ryan’s hometown of Melbourne we figured we’d throwback to one of Ryan’s most memorable Melbourne models- the legendary MCG! Ryan’s huge version of the Melbourne Cricket Ground actually holds the Australian record for the most number of LEGO minifigures in one model – at well over […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO brick Love Boat

Created on March 23, 2017 2:32 pm

  For this week’s Throwback Thursday we’re going back to one of Ryan’s biggest and most enduring models: The LEGO brick Love Boat! Built back in 2010, the Love Boat was actually built from the same bricks Ryan used in his first big model, the A-380 and came about when Ryan tried to think of a […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO​® Elvis Firefighting Helicopter

Created on March 16, 2017 7:04 am

This week’s Throwback Thursday is probably our most infamous model- The giant firefighting Erickson Skycrane named “Elvis”! Elvis is actually a Canadian skycrane that the Australian firefighting service borrows each summer to help contain and fight bushfires. It was Ryan’s twin boys who told him he had to build Elvis when they saw it flying […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick A380

Created on March 8, 2017 10:25 am

This week’s Throwback Thursday takes us right back to 2009 and one of Ryan’s most important models- the A380 model which set Ryan on the path to become Australia’s first LEGO Certified Professional! Long before he became an LCP, Ryan was a long-time fan of both planes and the cutaway books, so when it came to […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO Sydney Opera House

Created on March 2, 2017 12:06 pm

Considering the construction of the actual Sydney Opera House was started in 1959 on 1st March, it seems appropriate that this week’s Throwback Thursday is all about Ryan’s versions of this Australian icon. Of course it’s even more appropriate that Ryan build the Opera House from LEGO bricks, because the original architect of the Opera […]
