The 14/15th May saw SydLUG attend the Sydney Aviation Model Show at Bankstown Airport. The show featured various model aircraft shops, exotic cars and of course, our Lego display. The 9×9 baseplate layout was based on a country airfield in the Asia Pacific region. All who attended were amazed by the amount of Lego and the Easter eggs littered through the layout. How many can you see? (Try to find a soccer ball, Australian WW1 troops, Australian Special Forces, a Star Wars Droid plus many more).
SydLUG members have been busy lately preparing for a couple of upcoming shows.
The Sydney Aviation Model show is on next weekend (14/15th May) at Bankstown Airport and BrickExpo is on in 3 months at Canberra. If you are a Sydney Lego fan and keen to see some great creations, head on down to Canberra to check it out.
Other news is that we are busy organising a Sydney Show, “The Sydney Brick Show” which is planned for around Easter 2012!! Watch this space 🙂
The 15th and 16th January saw 13 SydLUG members drive, fly or train down to Melbourne to display various MOCs at Brickvention 2011. The displays included town, western, pirates, interesting architecture, trains, robots, technic, sci-fi MOCs and even Hogwart’s Castle. The Western layout “El Bricko” won the people’s choice award. The public turned out in force queuing for up to 2.5 hours to enter the display area. A brilliant event with most of the big builders from the eastern Aussie states in attendance.
SydLUG members were invited to display some MOCS at BrickExpo in Canberra, Australia in August 2010. Nine of us made the trip and took a stack of Lego to display.
Matt, Rod and Robb made a Pirate display with a fort, island and multiple ships:
David (Mr Offset) displayed his first version of Hogwart’s castle:
Tim and J.P. made a street layout with their owns MOCs plus some Lego models:
Pete had some of his buildings on display:
Darrell made a Star Wars inspired SHIP:
Anto took some of his Stargate inspired stuff:
Looking forward to BrickEXpo in 2011!!!
