In my first update from New Mars, I showed you the foundations, monorail and cargo train tracks being laid. This time we will take a tour around each of the areas of the base, including an on board view from the Monorail train!
The London AFOLs were sharing a stand at the London Model Engineering Exhibition with Brickish at Ally Pally over the weekend. Several of our members had built GBC modules and they were all put together to make a ridiculously pointless ball-carrying contraption, including two of mine. The punters loved it! Here’s a video of the circuit:
I was helping to run the machine all day, and heard many complimentary comments. The two best ones were:
This is the best LEGO model I’ve ever seen!
This is the best model in the whole show!
High praise indeed… Anyway, here are my two contributions merrily shifting balls.
And the public clearly loved it – there were loads of questions from young and old alike.
I was allowed out for a little while to look at the rest of the LEGO on display, here is a selection of photos of other builds:
So all in all my first experience at exhibiting was a good one, great fun and excellent company. When’s the next one?
