A while back, New Elementary put out a call for participants in one of their Festivals of Parts. They are one of my favorite LEGO blogs and a solid influence on the way that I write about my hobby, so I jumped at the opportunity.

This hover-tank by KANICHUGA is sweet.
So many awesome details packed onto this pair of walking tanks by Carter.
Two weeks ago, I attended my fourth Bricks Cascade. I was really excited going in, with 29 models registered and my first year as a volunteer theme coordinator. We were going to have a huge hall, twice the size of the largest hall we’d had in the past. It felt like a lot was riding on making this a great convention. Continue reading Bricks Cascade 2017
Vince_Toulouse has a distinct, streamlined style, so evident here in this massive dieselpunk flier.
This near future space fighter by P. B. has an intense crunchiness that I just love.
