BrickWorld 2015 – Part One

I’ve just arrived home today from BrickWorld Chicago and I must say it has been one of the most memorable experiences of my life.  It was fantastic to meet everyone and see the amazing MOCs.  Truly inspiring!!

My individual layout was called The Promenade:

From left to right, there is a new sand blue building (yet to be named), Trilogy, a 16-stud version of Sugar & Spice, Blooming Blossoms, 16-stud version of Black Velvet, remodelled Psychiatrist’s Office, Coveted Clutch and a new tan and black building (yet to be named).

You can find some more images of these buildings on Flickr.  A big thank you to Pete (RedCoKid) for taking these shots for me.  That’s his Aerial Arena you can see in the background.  I don’t think it is possible to fully appreciate the scale of the Aerial Arena until you see it in real life.  It is simply huge!

I also had an absolute blast being part of the EuroBricks collaborative layout (more on that in Part Two).

I can’t wait for BrickWorld Chicago 2016!


Sneak preview

I am currently practising the ancient art of procrastination.  In just over a week I will be making my way to the airport to jump on a plane headed for Chicago for Brickworld 2015.  This means that I really should be packing up my two layouts.  Instead, I am finding any excuse to avoid it.  The reason is simple – once it’s packed, that’s it. No last minute finishing touches.

Here is one of the things I have been doing instead of packing – it’s a micro scale version of one of the layouts for BrickWorld, The Promenade.

The Promenade includes a mix of old, remodelled and new buildings and I can’t wait to show them to you!

The other layout I am involved in the EuroBricks one, which has taken me a little way out of my comfort zone.  No sneak previews of this one, but I am bringing a little starfighter!
