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.
Angel Of The North – Micropolis Block #82
This delightful little Micropolis module depicts the inconic Angel Of The North, a huge sculpture by Anthony Gormly which sits on top of a hill on the outskirts of Gateshead in the North East of England. It wasn’t actually built by me, but by my LEGO buddy Richard Carter, aka The Bricks McGee. It arrived mysteriously in my Micropolis layout after I had set up for the Discovery Brick show in October. Richard said he doesn’t really do other microscale builds, and I was welcome to have this lovely model as long as I took it to shows with the rest of my stuff. It’s a deal!
Haul #1: WordCamp Manchester
I’ve been attending WordCamp Manchester today, and one of the event sponsors was giving away pseudo-LEGO mugs with a little bag full of real LEGO plates and tiles to play with. I managed to snag one which now holds pens and other bits in my LEGO den.
One of the event’s speakers, Richard Carter has another persona as Brick McGee. He was giving out a few custom Minifigures after his talk, and I managed to get hold of one for my collection. Yay!
