Virtual Bricks 2020

Starting on 24th March 2020, the UK was locked down because of the coronavirus.  A lot of shows have been cancelled or postponed, so we thought we’d host a virtual event – you can still build your MOC and let people see it here.

But first – a word from our sponsor (well, some of our members, actually) about us and our Lego User Group.  We’ve had a good time making the Lego models (MOCs) you will see in the pictures and videos below.  If you’d like to know more, click here.  And you’re welcome to join us!

A selection of stunning MOCs by Tim – click through for his commentary starting with this bridge over untroubled water:

Here is Darren with his Wizard of Oz MOC.  It’s Hello, Yellow Brick Road!  Click the picture for video

It’s time for trains!  From our friends in LNUR, here’s some video.  Lego *and* trains, what’s not to like?

Here is a very busy pit lane from Tim GP.  There’s a zombie holding the starting pistol…

And here’s another view of the pit lane, plus some smaller vignettes.  Go, Sonic!
