Monkeying Around in the Arctic

Tammo S.‘s colourful sci-fi hovercraft has run into some problems in the snow. Indeed snowflakes from the crash-landing still spatter its windscreen. Fortunately the pilot has found a nicely-shaped chunk of Lego ice floe to land on. He’s come prepared with a cooking stove and tools to fix the fault too. If he really gets stuck, he can always shelter in the well appointed cockpit that has been provided with lots to read and unusually, a potted plant.

The clean lines of these simple but nicely designed Lego models take us back to the calmer, happier days of our youth.

Tones of brown, black and grey will predominate, with the occasional beige camper van. Fortunately Flickr’s Karf Oohlu has decided to cheer everyone up with a pair of brightly coloured post-apoc vehicles. Click this link to his Photostream to enter his weird world.
