Finnians Shipyard

OK, this is clearly not a car. But it is gorgeous, and contains so many wonderful Town scale vehicles it’s sure worth publicising here at The Lego Car Blog. Built by previous bloggee Konajra this is ‘Finnians Shipyard’ that forms part of a much larger – and ridiculously impressive – ‘Brickton Harbour‘ build, which contains […]

A Super Yacht

This is the M/Y Scout, a brand new twin-screw ocean going superyacht designed by H2 Yacht Design and built by Hakvoort Shipyard for a discerning billionaire. Measuring 209ft/63m long and with a 1,400 gross tonnage the Scout is only fractionally smaller than TLCB’s own superyacht, the Seabricscuit, paid for via the ads for Disney World, clickbaity […]

Dig Big

This stupendous vehicle is a Caterpillar 7495 HF electric rope shovel and it can carry 120 tons up to 9m high in its ‘dipper’ (or bucket to you and us). Well this one can’t obviously, as it’s made from Danish plastic, but it’s rather impressive all the same. Built by previous bloggee Arjan Oude Kotte (aka Konajra) it […]

Shipping Forecast

TLCB Towers is located in an island nation (over 6,000 islands in fact). This means that – if we so wish – we can listen to a uniquely crap bit of radio. The Shipping Forecast can be heard four times a day courtesy of our state broadcaster and the Coastguard & Maritime Agency, updating the […]

Floating Bricks 2017 | Hamburg – Reader Report

TLCB staff don’t often get out to LEGO shows. Partly because our mysterious identities may be revealed, but mostly because the Elves have a habit of sneaking into our luggage, and our insurance is nowhere near that comprehensive. Luckily our readers can be more mobile than us, and one such reader contacted us with an offer to cover a LEGO […]

Big Tug

This incredible recreation of a 1960s tug boat, the ‘Smit Steenbank’, comes from nautical extraordinaire Konajra. Featuring some of the best detailing that you will ever see in Lego form and measuring 80cm long, Konajra’s latest ship shows just how far Lego can be taken as a modelling medium. We highly recommend visiting Konajra’s Flickr account […]

What’s in the Box?

We don’t often blog ships here at The Lego Car Blog, but when we do they’re big. This astonishing polar transport ship is the work of TLCB favourite Konajra, whose latest model has been commissioned by Red Box Energy. Two of these heavy module ice-breakers are currently under construction for the company, and when complete they’ll be […]

Pedal Power

Not that you’d know it from recent posts, but we are supposed to be a car blog. However, we do have a soft-spot for anything pedal powered – they were our first wheels after all. These two unusual builds come from Konajra on Flickr, and Stephan Niehoff of Flickr and MOCpages. Konajra’s drift trike looks like a […]

Boat Party

This one is big. Like, really really big. Konajra has clicked approximately 100,000 LEGO pieces together to create this 3.25 meter long replica of the 1934 MS Jutlandia. It’s big enough that we lost more than a few Elves for several hours (you can come back any time Konajra). His latest commissioned piece is available to view now on […]

The Lego Boat Blog

We don’t just do cars here at The Lego Car Blog. See, here’s a boat! You can see more of Konajra’s beautifully detailed Serco Marine SD tug boat by clicking here.

Rainbow Warrior Picture Special

This astonishing ship comes from Flickr’s Konajra, who appeared here last week with this, and who has now reconstructed one of the world’s most iconic vessels in Lego form. It is of course, the Greenpeace Rainbow Warrior. This is Greenpeace’s third Rainbow Warrior ship and the first to be purpose-built for the charity. As you would expect […]

Photo Like a Pro

The very best Lego vehicles in the world feature here at The Lego Car Blog. But the quality isn’t limited to just the build – the standard of presentation must be exceptional too. If you’re here wondering ‘How do I get my stuff to look that good?’, Flickr’s Konajra gives us an insight into the easiest and most […]

Big Bucket

This enormous Caterpillar 7495 HF bucket excavator was uncovered by a group of very excitable Elves on Flickr (a few weeks ago actually, when it wasn’t quite finished, so this is an updated post). It’s the work of LEGO-building genius Konajra, a man who’s featured here on TLCB a few times in the past with […]

Brave Heart

This astonishing creation is a 1.25 meter long replica of the Northern Star rescue boat ‘Grampian Don’, built by the immensely talented Konajra on Flickr. Konajra designed the ship in LDD, before building it for real from over 15,000 LEGO pieces. Based in Aberdeen, Scotland, the Grampian Don supports the North Sea oil exploration platforms, […]

Restoration

The Lego Car Blog Elves haven’t found any decent cars today, so to keep them fed we’re diversifying slightly with this charming garage workshop scene from Flickr’s Konajra. More known for his huge ships, Konajra’s mini-figure scene is full of superb details. See if you can identify the four post lift, engine trolley, unpainted cab […]
