Throwback Thursday: LEGO® Brick Jetstar 787
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 Space Shuttle
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
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 Pompeii
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 MCG
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
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® brick A380
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
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 […]
Saturn V Rocket makes the Guinness Book of Records!
Australia’s tallest LEGO model, Ryan’s massive 6 metre tall Saturn V Rocket and Launch tower, has just been featured in the Guinness Book of World Records- Blockbuster edition for 2017! We thought this was a great reason to look back at the Rocket model itself, which was built way back in 2012, and first displayed […]
Wonders of the World Brisbane Open & Tour Announced!
It’s been an epic first week up in Brisbane for our new Wonders of the World exhibition! It was both exhilarating and slightly frightening to show all the models we’ve been working on for over a year to the public for the first time. But seeing the looks on the faces of the kids ( […]

Giant LEGO Sydney Opera House
My own personal Mount Everest has now been climbed!
Unquestionably one of the hardest shapes to make out of LEGO bricks, my 75,000 brick version shows the famous Australian landmark off inside and out.
(I love doing my trademark cutaway treatment on the big models!)
