Cuusoo of the Day: The Spyder

Lego News

This Link will take you to an analysis of the new Lego servomotor.

Very cool stuff for those into that Lego automation.  

Pick of the Day

Can-Am Sunoco Porsche 917/30 Spyder
by Detomaso


Detomaso, famous for his excellent birds is actually one of those well rounded builders who dabbles in a bit of everything.  You can see a collage of a  year of his works here

This vehicle is no exception to his clever use of brick.  The car "sports" interesting curves and is not afraid to utilize inverted brick as the "display side".  I really like the removable engine and I am still trying to figure out how Detomaso curves those cheese wedges. 

Honorable Mention

LEGO BIKE Mk2
by Aonizi


This was a very unusual day.  There was one stand out set and several quality offerings. For the most part, the "Bike" is first among equals with the Living Room, Light House, Brick Truck and Fifth Wheel.  The fact is that each of these are variations on previously existing projects or actual sets...all very good but none really standing out.

After much though I realized that I like Aonizi motorcycle a bit better than the others.  The technic elements are well used in modelling the engine.
