Bricklive at MUBA, Basel

Tuesday was spent pottering around the Bricklive event in Basel as part of MUBA (which is a bit like the Ideal Home Exhibition). It is basically a scaled down version of Bricklive that is held in Birmingham and the ExCel in London – and I have to say that I was relived not be fighting…

LEGOLAND SPACE

LEGO 886 – Space Buggy

This is more my thing. A while back I bought a whole load of vintage LEGO Space sets as I never had them when I was younger. Set 886 is LEGO at minifigure scale at its purist. Such is the simplicity of this set, one could set a target to build this in under 30…
