Advent 2016 Day 21

Happy Winter Solstice everyone! Day 21 gives us a Christmas Tree (City), something weird (Friends), a stormtrooper (Star Wars), and two little birds (Christmas Build Up). I built a larger bird with the leftover parts.

The City model is a nice Christmas tree.

I have no idea what the Friends model is…. propane cylinder and fire extinguisher maybe to go with yesterday’s BBQ? Plenty of leftover parts too.

Stormtrooper. I’ve seen nothing to dissuade my Life Day bloodbath prediction.

Here are all three models together.

For Christmas Build Up we build two tiny little birds. Cute, but this exact design has appeared in a number of LEGO sets, and it’s not using much of the parts available.

[EDIT 12/23] I realized today that I had accidentally started building models off by one day, starting at Day 14. I accidentally built model #15 on the 14th, and continued off by one until today when I discovered myself building the final model! This should have been the Day 22 model, but I built it a day early. To make up for it, I’m building the Day 14 model on the 23rd and posting a correction on each of the days from 14-23. Sorry about the mistake!

To prove they didn’t use the parts very effectively I built a larger bird using the leftover parts.
