The weather has been putting its oar into plans over the last few days, thanks to the unexpectedly heavy snow. But it had melted sufficiently for me to head to Leicester today for my first visit to the National Space Centre which is hosting the annual Brickish Weekend. It was great to see all the models and chat with their very talented creators. Here is a selection of photos from the day, click the image to see the next:
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?
