Re: Back from Vacation

For Lego fans, here's a video someone made from Brickworld Chicago - it has maybe 10% of what was there.

Back from Vacation

I've been out of town visiting my wife's family in Michigan. We took a trip to Chicago and went to the Museum of Science and Industry. Here's a picture of us in front of an actual captured WWII German U-boat (yes, it's inside the building!): image_1.jpg We took a tour (the inside is roughly the size...

Re: Polar Lights coming out with ST:DIS ships in 1/2500

So this is the "official" 1/2500 release for the next year or two? I remember a survey that had a number of other options. I was kind of expecting movie era, Voyager or Enterprise subjects. While Discovery is the new/exciting kid on the block, it seems to be a limited audience (those that are forkin...

Re: 50x50=2500, 8 Light (pic heavy)

Here's some weekend updates: update2.jpg The left half of the floor is Main Mission. There are 4 types of figures, which I have 6 copies of each. I will need to cut up/reassemble limbs to create additional variations of figures. There's unmodified desks and chairs, but I will add an additional desk ...

Re: assimilated uss enterprise ncc-1701

I too like the Borgified Federation ship, but my heart says "Kirk's ship, no way!"
