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® Sydney Aquarium models

Created on June 15, 2017 12:48 pm

In 2009 Ryan had one of his first big LEGO company jobs as the newly minted Australian LEGO Certified Professional helping the LEGO build teams from Enfield LEGO Workshop in the US install and repair a huge number of massive LEGO models for Sydney’s Aquarium and Wildlife World. There was a MASSIVE 4+ metre tall […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® Brick Brisbane Hospital

Created on June 8, 2017 4:29 pm

Here’s a Throwback Thursday especially for our Queensland fans! Back in 2011 Ryan was commissioned to build models of the planned new Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, later renamed to Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital​. At the time Brisbane had 2 aging Children’s Hospitals and both were to be closed and replaced by the new hospital, so […]

Throwback Thursday: LEGO® brick Banana Heist

Created on June 1, 2017 11:47 am

For this Throwback Thursday we’re focusing not so much on some Banana models we built as what happened to them- they were stolen! Back in 2015 we were invited to display as part of Townsville’s Strand Ephemera festival, where sculptures from local and international artists are displayed along the Townsville beachfront around the trees. We […]

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 […]
