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.
Our Elves almost missed this charming creation from Galaktek, on Flickr. Unusually for a sci-fi build it isn’t covered in guns & missiles and our workforce has a proven penchant for such things. This delivery lorry could easily be from the near future of Lego’s “City” range and features some very neat “wheel” units. Click on this link to see how Galaktek made them.
Just when you thought that you’d seen all of the possible ways to build a wheel from LEGO, along comes F@bz. Whilst he is best known for his unusual spacecraft, we have also his featured futuristic cars and bikes on The LEGO Car Blog. F@bz’s Citroen Epona runs on wheels made from 17 (front) and 16 (back) black minifig helmet visors, according to the Elves who counted them. We’ve no information as to the ride quality this gives but it definitely creates a distinctive style. Click on this link to F@bz’s Photostream to see more, including detailed shots of some of the clever connections used in its construction.
