If you are a regular reader of my blog, and of my reviews in particular, you might have noticed that I abolished the numeric score in my reviews. Whilst I found it a good idea when I started writing them (quite a number of moons ago already – how time flies!), but now it feels… Read More Reviewing and Stuff!
Starter sets are a typical gateway drug. Ideally they represent the very essence of the theme and offer an instant and quite appealing, low-price access to it. And – ideally for Lego – making you crave for more. This year above ideal has been very much reached if you ask me. Quite easily actually. You… Read More Review: Jungle Starter Set (60157)
Lets start off the new year with some MOC-content. More to follow in the coming weeks! This cute little car is inspired by the 2014 polybag Mini Cooper.

Strange how things work out sometimes. I was for over a year on and off writing on a post… Read More Hitting the Limits of Growth?
I found my Sky Pirates were missing one thing: a really evil looking, dieselpunk propeller fighter plane. Something that spells aggression and power, and fits to their fleet of (quite ramshackle looking) contraptions… a flying hotrod! I combined the front area and cockpit from an S.E.5a biplane with the wing shape and silhouette of… Read More The Queen of the Aces
