Save Ferris!

For those old enough to appreciate the movie “Ferris Bueller’s day off” you can probably remember this car.
I certainly will never be able to afford a real one (they are over $10 million bucks!) i figured id build myself a real one.
At over 1.8m long and 50,000 bricks, I think you will agree that it is “soooooooo choice”

I’ve always wanted to fly a plane, but I never did manage to get my pilots license, however that didn’t stop me from building the Pilatus P-9 from the RAAF’s acrobatic Roulettes.
(Complete with working propeller!)

Up, Up and away!

Whilst this colourful hot air balloon looks pretty it certainly was no easy build, its crazy shape along with colour changes made it one of the more difficult things we have ever built.
(Combine that with the fact that it is designed to be hung from above!)

Giant LEGO Sydney Opera House

Created on January 19, 2014 1:41 pm

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!)

LEGO Melbourne Star

Created on December 22, 2013 3:28 am

Here’s my LEGO Melbourne star observation wheel. At just over 3m in diameter it is unquestionably the most difficult thing I have ever built.
It is fully motorised using LEGO power functions using just over 30,000 bricks.
The hardest part was the maths and process in doing a 7 pointed star held by a flying buttress while being powered.

(I have no idea if there are bigger LEGO wheels around, if there is I’m yet to see one)

The model is mounted on permanent display in the gift shop after you ride the observation wheel.
The kids and I are in this shot just for scale!

The Melbourne star opens tomorrow (the 23rd of December, check it out!)

Airbus Work in Progress

Created on October 19, 2009 12:46 am

I’ve been asked by a lot of people to share my progress on my latest large MOC, my Airbus A380. Normally i am loathed to take and share pictures of Work in Progress, as so much can change and may not have finished parts or certain details. Which is the case here, i have just […]
