Considering how rubbish we are at writing about anything that’s not a car, you might be wondering why the last six creations to feature here haven’t been cars. We’re wondering that to…
Anyhoo, this ‘not a car’ is apparently a DRAKE Vulture from the video game ‘Star Citizen’, a single-operator salvage ship recreated (rather wonderfully) by Flickr’s Volker Brodkorb in mini-figure scale, meaning it measures eighty-three studs long and over forty studs wide.
A complete interior, working landing gear, and opening loading ramps all feature, and there’s more to see at Volker’s photostream. Click the link above to take a look, whilst we instruct the Elves to find us a bloody car.
Ah SHIPtember, another tenuously-titled sci-fi month within the online Lego community of which we know absolutely nothing. Well, apart from that the ‘SHIP’ bit of the annual wordplay means ‘Seriously Huge Investment in Parts’.
Stephan Niehoff can surely attest to that with this incredible, and absolutely enormous, 118 stud long behemoth, the ‘AC 240 Brutus’ gunboat. Created in stunning detail the Brutus apparently belongs in the Star Citizen Universe, which is sadly another subject about which we know absolutely nothing.
As you can tell, we suck at sci-fi. Fortunately the other Lego blogs are far nerdier than TLCB so you can expect full details and an elaborate back-story to appear elsewhere before long. In the meantime you can check out Stephan’s remarkable build on Flickr – click the link above to go for a good long SHIP.
