Yesterday pictures of the new sets for next year popped up
Please Note: This post took me a long time to finish. Not the writing. That usually goes pretty quick. As it did here. But the photos… I finally got them in a quality I can approve. Mostly! Enjoy! Hardboiled detective stories are an all-time favourite of mine. Novels like Raymond Chandler’s The Big Sleep or… Read More Review: Detective’s Office (10246)
What do you do when you have too many old white bricks, that have yellowed to a point where they are really more tan like white? Yes, of course you could use hydrogen peroxide to whiten them again… but apart from that, if you don’t really want all the hassle? Build something that looks suitingly… Read More Oldschool MOC: Ulf’s Garage

I like Star Wars (especially the original trilogy), but my true sci-fi love belongs to Star Trek. This spirit of discovery and a… Read More Space – The Final Frontier
As promised, today I show you the current version of the Flying Boat. While the original one was in the style of the 1910s and early 20s, with the tan and sand pieces hinting a wood-and-canvas-construction, the new one is all clad in shiny white painted aluminium skin typical for the 1930s! Aviation progressed rapidly… Read More Flying Boat MOC, the 2nd!
One of the most memorable smaller town sets I have is the Screaming Patriot (6646) from 1991 (of course in American colours!). I always had issues though with implementing it’s cool exhaust pipes into one of my own creations. As cool as they look, they limit your options according engine-layout and wheelbase quite significantly, but at the… Read More Mean Machine
