My own personal Mount Everest has now been climbed!
Unquestionably one of the hardest shapes to make out of LEGO bricks, my 75,000 brick version shows the famous Australian landmark off inside and out.
(I love doing my trademark cutaway treatment on the big models!)

Bond, James Bond.......

From Boxing day until January 27th I'll be at the Melbourne Museum building some huge James Bond themed LEGO mosaics, come down and help build them with me.
The Designing James bond (50 years of 007) is also at the museum where you can see some amazing sets and props from the movies.
Here's the first, gotta love that car!
LEGO Melbourne Star
- Created on Sunday, 22 December 2013 03:28
Here's my LEGO Melbourne star observation wheel. At just over 3m in diameter it is unquestionably the most difficult thing I have ever built.
It is fully motorised using LEGO power functions using just over 30,000 bricks.
The hardest part was the maths and process in doing a 7 pointed star held by a flying buttress while being powered.
(I have no idea if there are bigger LEGO wheels around, if there is I'm yet to see one)
The kids and I are in this shot just for scale!
The Melbourne star opens tomorrow (the 23rd of December, check it out!)
Sidney Nolan's Ned Kelly in LEGO

Up at the Perc Tucker Gallery in Townsville my latest mystery mosaic has just been finished.
I've always wanted to do this picture in LEGO, and with 23 different colours and just under 50,000 bricks, it was unquestionably one of the most complex ones I have ever done! (Here is the original next to it for reference!)
Pop by the gallery to check it out and enjoy the lots of other activities there.
