The London AFOLs held their annual Great Ball Contraption display last weekend at the London Model Engineering Exhibition at Alexandra Palace in north London. As usual, the adults loved it and the kids were entranced. Here you can see the complete layout.
The LNUR LEGO Train layout was looking very impressive at the Shildon Brick Show this year. Thanks to builders Isaac, Jamie, Pete and Richard for letting my camera get a passenger’s eye view of the goings on around the track. They have made some awesome engines, rolling stock, freight wagons and scenery. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.
I normally exhibit my Great Ball Contraption models with my LUG, the London AFOLs. But recently I was invited by friends in the Brick Alley LUG to take my models to their Shildon Brick Show in the North East. The line kicked off with a series of my GBC builds, which then fed into some really nicely themed models from the Brick Alley members, many of whom were first-time GBC builders. There were some familiar designs on show, but also a few which were original concepts, so it’s great to see how much they achieved for their first GBC lineup at a show.
One of the many brilliant things which happened during my trip to Denmark, and in particular my visit to the Skaerbaek Fan Weekend, was that I got to meet so many fantastic friends – new and old. One of them was Jakob from the Brick Bakery YouTube channel. Here is his inteview of me showing off my Micropolis models at the convention. Thanks Jakob, it was great talking to you!
Here is a compliation of trains and Great Ball Contraption models which were on display at Bressingham Bricks recently. Enjoy.
