August Update

Friday, August 28th, 2009

Ugh… sorry that it’s been over a month since my last post here. I have not touched my bricks lately because of a hectic, super-busy schedule (work, life, etc.). That’s just how it goes…

Plus I’ve got a load of stuff to break down and sort. I’m not looking forward to that so much :-)

But hey, I built some trees for the train show last month. That’s something new here on the blog.

The big tree makes use of a bunch of different brown Technic connectors. These brown parts came mostly from all the old Starwars Technic sets I got years ago, and until now, I haven’t found a good use for them.

I also have a small back-log of ideas that I need to photograph and post here. Yep, I have plenty of house-keeping work to do!

On the side of serious building… I’m stuck in a rut. I cannot decide what to do. I’ve been wanting to build a new, very large crawler crane. I’ve built crawler cranes in the past, but I want to build the ultimate crawler crane MOC now that I have a lot of lessons learned and experience. The trouble is that everyone and their dog has built crawler cranes.

Sometimes I can’t get motiviated to build a MOC if there are too many similar ones out there by other builders! :-)
