Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

I know, it's a pain. I don't know if logging in through another social media account would be a better option for you, although I know some people struggle with it? I can't say I've noticed increased spam off the back of it, just the LEGO stuff you might expect obviously. I've mentioned it to them, ...

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

By way of a brief update, my LEGO Idea Bluebird now has over one hundred supporters well within the initial 60 days allowed, which means it received an additional 365 days to gather support. Still a very long way to go, but it's the fastest start any of my own projects has had and very respectable. ...

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

Much as I enjoy a bit of therapeutic Lego in my old age, I don't think there's a hope in hell of Lego picking up a Bluebird set idea and producing it - it's just too much of a niche interest. And perhaps it's just me, but I think it's a tad 'off' to immediately be thinking about earning from such a...

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

I'd not seen this version of the K7 in Lego before but I thought you'd appreciate the attention to detail with the markings etc - I started looking at ways to do it last night and it's going to be a challenge which is why the models so far all have a degree of compromise. https://www.flickr.com/phot...

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

Nor indeed be able to store it anywhere. I've spent a great deal of time recently constructing Ikea furniture to house Lego and from the pictures I've seen that thing is massive.

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

Sorry, I was attempting to underline the fact that I'm not actually thinking about money by addressing that up front. I just thought some people might be thinking "what's in it for him" so I was trying to be transparent about it. I'm actually thinking that given that there are a lot of engineers who...

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

Ah, I can see the images now I've logged in to post! Hadn't hit "remember me". Anyway. A year or so ago I found out about an official Lego site where you can post set ideas up, the idea being for people to vote for them with a view to their becoming manufactured Lego sets.

Re: New Members

Hello, thanks for letting me in! As I'm sure is true for many others, my association with the Lakes started when it became the family's staple summer holidays location for many years. Up hills, on lakes, reading rings off swans' legs. Decades later I married in the Lakes, and we had part of our rece...
