Well, its Massive!

When we were contacted by Shell last year, we had no idea just how big a model can get, until we heard about a thing called the 'Prelude"
At just over 483m long it is simply massive, its a floating Liquid natural gas refinery, extractor and storage facility all in one!
It will be stationed off the north west coast of Australia when it is finished and is a huge feat of engineering.

So here is our LEGO version unveiled at APPEA in Perth:

Sometimes, just sometimes we get to have some fun, this poor guy is simply called "Oh Noes!"
The LEGO Movie
- Created on Sunday, 16 March 2014 22:19
Here's a couple of builds we have recently finished for the upcoming release of the LEGO movie.
The LEGO Movie logo is one of the biggest builds we have ever done, weighing in at a massive 360kgs!
It is 5x the size of the original logo used in the movie. As you can see the model had some very special challenges around building it!
The minifig Emmett and Lucy were also a lot of fun to build.
Giant LEGO Sydney Opera House

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!)

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!)
