Road of Bones

The R504 Kolyma Highway, also known as the ‘Road of Bones’, is one of the grimmest construction projects in history. It’s not some distant relic either, being completed in 1953, with the bones of those that died building it (who were forced to do so under Stalinist Communism) laid underneath.

Chris Perron‘s ‘Ridge Ranger’ rover is far from grim, being a brightly-coloured homage to the concept art of Darren Bartley. It does however feature some ingenious (but rather grim if you’re a LEGO mini-figure) wheels, constructed from dozens of dismembered mini-figure arms. Yuk!

We genuinely can’t figure out how Chris has built said wheels, but they mean his rover drives upon a road of bones wherever it goes. See if you can work out how he’s done it via the link above, although we bet your mini-figures are hoping you can’t…
