I’ve added the Deep Sea Creatures kit to my Pirate ship Lego Scene. It was nothing planned but, since we’re both vaccinated, we’ve visited the new Lego store that was recently opened in Brussels and I couldn’t help myself… At the store, they had a pirate scene and the boat was surrounded by small blue and white pieces to imitate the waves around the ship and I’m wondering if I shouldn’t order a few (hundreds) as well… As always, the kit was fun to build, especially the great white shark with all its teeth.
The build continues… We’ve now completed the 8th step on 17. The model is getting big and heavy, I’m very glad that we’ve purchased a 3D printed stand that can hold it vertically because we don’t own a table that could hold it horizontally, except our dining table, unfortunately we still have to eat. We also continue to record timelapses of the build and I can’t wait to see the final video.
We’ve completed the second step of the Millennium Falcon. Instead of a picture of the build, we’ve tried something new: we’ve recorded a timelapse. I won’t publish the next videos until the process is complete, so I can make one that will cover the entire build. It will take a while though, since the build is divided in 17 steps and we only work on it once a week. I’ve recorded the video with an iPhone 11 Pro max and a Neewer holder mounted on a Vanguard photography tripod.
We’ve had a very comfy Sunday. Brussels was under the snow, and we were all cozy, completing the first step of the Millennium Falcon. The build is already massive and I don’t think that our dining table will be big enough to hold the Falcon, the instruction manual and the parts for the next steps. We’re probably gonna have to use our coffee table as well.
Something else that will change in the next steps is that I’ll be able to capture a time-lapse of the build… I’ve just ordered an iPhone stand that’s compatible with my photography tripod. So, expect to see us hard at work next week.
We’ve completed the Lego Hedwig that Soforah offered me for my birthday. It was a bit different from the other builds as it contains Technic elements, the wings move when you use the small handle on the side.
We’re now ready to start building the Millennium Falcon.
We’ve opened the box of the Millennium Falcon that we’ve offered ourselves for Christmas. The Instruction Manual is huge (Harry Potter minifig for reference), 466 pages to assemble the 7541 pieces. We’re gonna be busy for a while…
We’ve completed the Lego pirate ship, it was a nice build with a lot of funny details, like the sailor forced to walk the plank.
We’re already looking forward the next one, which will probably be Hedwig from Harry Potter.
I don’t think that anyone would be surprised to learn that we’re Lego fans. We’ve already built a few Lego sets in the past, including the Death Star.
A few weeks ago, we purchased the Elf Club House to add a bit Lego fun to our Christmas decorations. Well, that’s how it started… We now have a pretty nice winter village that’s over the 4000 pieces, we also have Lego tree ornaments and a Lego Christmas wraith!
I’ll post more pictures as we complete the builds.
