Trusty Rusty

Lego Lightship

The Royal Yacht Skytanic is steaming through the skies en-route to Belleville. Soon she will reach the Northern Floating Icefield and the welcome sight of ‘Trusty Rusty’, the twenty-year old floating lightship and its accompanying beacons, stationed to guide air travellers through the perilous sykcicles.

The four-man crew of Trusty Rusty spend over a year on board at a time, facing huge winds and temperatures that drop below -40° in order to keep the sky traffic traversing the route safe.

Flickr’s Markus Ronge has photographed the old lightship beautifully and you can see more of his stunning imagery via Flickr, plus you can remind yourself of the Skytanic’s grand departure from the Maersk Pier and the other boats from the ‘Full Steam’ universe previously featured by clicking here.

The Skytanic

Lego Skytanic Steampunk Ship

She’s finally ready! Departing Maersk Pier on her maiden voyage to Belleville, the Royal Yacht ‘Skytanic’ is the largest, fastest, and most luxurious skyliner ever built. Five stories of cabins, restaurants and bars, the world’s first on-board heated pool, and – of course – the Royal Pavilion, there is surely no finer way than the Skytanic to sail the skies.

Masterminded by Flickr’s Markus Ronge, the Skytanic is deemed to be indestructible. The favoured ship of the Royal family, super-rich industrialists, and the highest of society, she’s sure to have a long and illustrious career navigating the clouds between Ninjago and Belleville. Take a look at all of the glorious photographs from the Skytanic’s maiden launch at Markus’s photostream, whilst we await her successful arrival in Belleville in a few weeks time.

Sky Boats

Lego Sky-Fi Airship

Markus Ronge‘s spectacular sky-fi world ‘Full Steam’ continues here at TLCB. Following the epic Maersk Pier featured earlier in the week Markus has now released individual images of some of the weird and whimsical sky boats that accompany it, including the Cargo Transport above and the Hercules Airtug below.

Head to the skies via the link above for the complete (and expanding) ‘Full Steam’ Flickr album to see more of these builds and the incredible world in which they inhabit.

Sky Sailing

Lego Air Ship

One of our Elves returned to TLCB Towers today with this, prompting an ‘uh oh’ (or words that mean ‘uh oh’ which aren’t suitable for type) to ripple around the office. Mark of Falworth’s ‘Bellonatus’ is clearly a work of Lego art, bursting with incredible detailing, ingenious build techniques, and glorious presentation. But… we are so out of our depth with models like this.

Is it Steam Punk? Sky-Fi? Pirates? Probably none of those, but we’ve still included them all in the tags to be safe. Whatever this is, it is definately worth a closer look – and you can do just that at Mark’s photostream. Click on the link to head to the skies.
