Back in June 2018, my LEGO User Group the London AFOLs put on a display as part of the Caterham Festival. We made various life-sized objects from LEGO to put into local shop windows. The models stayed there for a month for a competition where local kids were encouraged to see if they could find them all to win a prize. I contributed four builds, three of which I still have made up. There was some jewellery (which got taken apart soon after the event), a light switch, a framed picture and my favourite – a tray of delicious-looking petits-fours which were placed in the window of the local bakery.
It’s time to do a recap of all the nice models I’ve built from the two Advent Calendar sets I’ve had. The Star Wars one had a model behind each door, so after building them all I have a nice set of Star Wars related minifigs and miniature builds. I may well break a few up but I like some of the Microscale spaceships enough to keep them for my Micropolis Space Port, to be built someday! They all look good posed together on the flap of the box.
Unfortunately because many of the bricks are re-used for multiple models, you can’t see all of the 24-in-1 builds side by side. But here are a handful of my favourites from the set – I really enjoyed building all the models and with the odd exception, it was easy to see what they were, even if they were only tiny.
Star Wars has given us several “baddies” so far, and here’s another – a rather serious-looking Imperial Officer, gun-totin’ and he means business. Let’s not get him angry!
I would much rather engage with this tasty-looking plate of cakes from the 24-in-1 set! They look good enough to eat.
