Big Wheel Keep on Turnin’*

“That’s not a car” we hear you thinking to yourselves. Er, well no, it isn’t. But it is probably one of the few vehicles on earth that – along with the Cozy Coupe Coupe – almost all of us have had a go driving. The primary coloured ‘Big Wheel’ tricycle is the shared beginning for countless lifetimes of automotive journeying, and Jacob sadovich‘s Lego recreation is so perfect we can almost hear the trundling of the wheels and feel the knee strain in getting it up the driveway. Go for a pedal at Jacob’s photostream via the link above – It may have been decades, but we bet you already know exactly how it drives.

*Today’s title song.

Fortunate Son

If there are two things associated with America’s involvement in the Vietnam War more than any others, it’s the incessant use of Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Fortunate Son’, and the Bell UH-1N ‘Huey’ helicopter.

Fortunately we like Fortunate Son, and we like the Bell UH-1N Huey too, at least in brick form from Flickr’s [Maks].

[Maks]’s USAF Twin Huey captures the real military helicopter brilliantly, with flex hose skids, brick-built camo, and accurate decals.

There are more superb images of [Maks]’s build to see at his ‘UH-1N Twin Huey’ album – click the link above and start humming Fortunate Son on loop.
