I will be taking part in Brickworld Fort Wayne and have already signed up for a three table Medieval Layout. I wanted to reach out to know if anyone is interested in doing a Castle/Fantasy collaboration. I will edit to expand the layout if anyone is interested.
It’s happening… IT’S FINALLY HAPPENING!!! Brickworld Indy will take place at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on October 2nd & 3rd. If you purchased tickets for a previous Brickworld Indy event that was cancelled, you can use them for this event.
Hello all ‘Train Heads’ I just received brand new R104 switches, that I will have on my display during Brickworld Indy. I will have trains running through these switches, so that you can see their performance(no derailing) and how they are assembled and controlled. The switching has been cleverly designed that a ‘rotating element’ is designed to control better moving the switch tracks than LEGO mechanisms, which are linear and usually stiff to operate.
I will have a right & left switch for all to see. I’ll have business cards with me from Scott of BrickTracks(don’t know if he will attend) to give out.
An acquaintance of mine named Bill Sullivan contacted me because his son has a large lot of LEGO to sell to fund his Eagle Scout project. He would prefer to sell it in a single lot to one buyer, but I’m not sure that would be feasible. I will recommend that he brings it to the January meeting, perhaps parting it out into bags with prices on them. I wanted everyone to know so they can be prepared if they are interested. I am attaching pictures he sent.
Being in a user group isn’t just about being a better builder. It is also about collaborating. In an effort to increase our club collaboration, we are introducing a road standard we will use in our cities. Based on the design by MichLUG, we will also be compatible with other clubs. We are excited to get this rolling. Just like our MTron collaboration, standards guide the way to making a much larger, much cooler display as a group than anyone can do on their own (without really deep pockets).
I’m taking all the pics I took this year and making a movie/video. Almost finished but I need ideas for music…. what kind of music do you hear in the background when doing your Lego’s? I need about 5-6 songs because the video is looking to last at least 30 min. I’ll be bringing a rough copy of it to see on my laptop before the mtg. in April if I can get it finished. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated, I’m at a lost for that part. Thanks in advance.
Club Members, I’m looking for more of this part, I use often in my creations. Will purchase any quantity found, thanks.
2018 is the 60th Anniversary of the Lego brick. What a great milestone for all fans of Lego!
