Grey Day

Lego Volkswagen Golf GTI Mark 1

It’s mid-winter here at TLCB Towers, and whilst those from warmer climes are probably picturing piles fluffy white snow, the reality is at the moment everything is an unremitting sea of Grey.

So in recognition of the boring palette at work outside, here are two decidedly grey Lego creations*. First up is MortalSwordman’s brilliant little Volkswagen Golf GTI. The design of the first generation of Wolfsburg’s ‘Peoples’ Hatchback’ was so successful it is still defining the styling direction of the entire Volkswagen range today. You can see more of MortalSwordman’s near-perfect Lego recreation of the Mark 1 GTI on MOCpages here.

Lego Skoda RSO Truck

Today’s second grey creation was suggested to us by a reader. It comes from Brickshelf’s myszomor, and it’s a World War 2 Skoda RSO truck.

Skoda built the RSO under force from the occupying Nazi’s, who wanted it for their war effort. Luckily the RSO had a few design flaws that were never rectified, so the truck wasn’t as useful as the Nazi’s wanted it to be. Good. You can see more of myszomor’s intriguing Town-style version of the wartime Skoda on Brickshelf via the link above.

*Smarties don’t come in grey for today’s successful Elf, so one of the office staff sucked a red one until the colour had come off…
