This is the latest thing I've made. Cool huh. Took heaps of work. The wheels were the trickiest. If you want to have a go at one of your own have a look at some of these.

I've been posting more pics of my curious creations on my new tumblr site - come check it out.

Down - A Short Story Part 1

I thought I might create a short story were I will post it in parts. Every end of each part of the story I'll make sure it ends with a "cliff hanger". And so I start now with the beginning of a text I wrote for my School Newspaper. 


Luke woke to the thumping sound of the ship's engines and the crunching from the stoker pixies 
lumbering coal into the ever-hungry fireboxes. He got out of bed, and looked at the time on his little Pocket watch, it read 7:44am, he had a good 21 minutes until it was his shift. Luke worked aboard the Sky Prince as a junior engineer. The Prince flies up to 4000 meters in the sky. Luke's cabin was small, but comfortable; he shared his cabin with the junior wireless officer, Jack Mcevoy, who was fast asleep. The two are good friends and when they both have time-off they have fun on top deck.   "Oh! Times getting on" thought Luke. He quickly, without waking jack, got dressed in his engineering guild suit and then Luke Smidmore opened the door, and closed it as quietly as before.

Tinkering with Lego - two new trains

Just before the Summer holidays. I built two narrow gauge Locomotives, I think I modeled this one after a Swedish engine and actually by accident!?! I call it The Stadtz. To start I used the same instructions as this locomotive set here and then I tinkered. . . The other one is total freeform. see below.  

The Chumley V can easily fit two minifigures into its uncovered cab, see Mr H. C. Basil and Mr Thicket steaming up. I like this loco - it looks slightly steampunk. It's got loads of levers, gears, oil lubricators, valves, wheels and stuff. It took time but it was lots of fun to make.
