Throwback Thursday LEGO® Brick Shell Refinery Ship

Created on October 12, 2017 9:00 am

In this week’s Throwback we’re going back to one of our biggest and most complex models- a huge nearly 5m long Shell LPG Refinery ship! We built the ship in separate sections for ease of transport and construction. This model was built back in the old workshop and was so big it filled the entire […]

Throwback Thursday LEGO® DUPLO train

Created on September 14, 2017 8:00 am

This week we’re talking DUPLO! Earlier this year we built a super-sized DUPLO train from this year’s new sets so big you can sit in it. Or even ride in! We built the train based on the new 2017 DUPLO numbers train set and it was used to showcase the new DUPLO range at a […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® Brick Jetstar 787

Created on August 24, 2017 8:12 am

Throwback Thursday is back! This week we’re going back to Ryan’s LEGO​® brick Jetstar 787 from 2014. As much as Ryan loves building planes, there was a very specific reason he chose to do his Jetstar 787 the way he did;  Jetstar actually lost his luggage full of LEGO on a flight to Rockhampton so […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick Shanghai Tower

Created on July 27, 2017 9:37 am

In this week’s Throwback Thursday we’re going back to another skyscraper model and our LEGO​® brick model of the world’s 2nd tallest building- the 632m tall, 128 level Shanghai Tower​! Apart from the sheer height of the building (over 3m in the 1:200 scale that the entire Towers of Tomorrow exhibition was built in) the […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick Tokyo Skytree

Created on July 20, 2017 9:32 am

For this Throwback Thursday we’re going back to Japan and probably the hardest model Ryan had to build for Sydney Living Museums’ Towers of Tomorrow exhibition- a 2m+ version of the Tokyo Skytree tower! The skytree’s distinctive white latticework was hard enough to build, but it was made even tougher thanks to the fact it […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick Space Shuttle

Created on July 13, 2017 10:14 am

The Space Shuttle is one of those iconic vehicles that captures the imagination and Ryan had always wanted to build one, but was at a bit of loss at first as to how best to do it. Ryan normally likes to build in “minifig-scale” so he can feature LEGO minifigures, but at that scale the […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick 101 Collins St Tower

Created on July 6, 2017 12:37 pm

When Ryan built his version of 101 Collins St Melbourne in 2011, it was Australia’s tallest LEGO brick model at over 2 metres tall! Ryan chose to build this particular skyscraper mainly because he used to look at it all the time in his old job! It was also very square and relatively LEGO friendly […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® Brick Ferrari

Created on June 29, 2017 8:59 am

This week we’re throwing back to probably Ryan’s coolest LEGO® models ever- his 1/4 scale 1961 Ferrari 250GT California! The car features in Ryan’s favourite ever movie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and he’s wanted one ever since, but at over $10 million each, he figured building one out of LEGO® bricks will be the closest he’ll […]

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 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 […]
