Advent 2017 Day 3

The third day of the LEGO Advent calendars gives us a nice little fireplace (City), a bunny on a disc sled on a bunny slope (Friends), and some Star Wars spaceship which Jay says is “The Phantom” from that Rebels show. Christmas Build-Up‘s third model is a little puppy I think, and with the leftover parts I made a little red and white airplane.

The fireplace is nice, with two flame pieces and a spare one in case one goes out.

The bunny is adorable, and the little tiny slope looks safe enough … Get it? Bunny slope??? I don’t know if it was intentional, but I think it’s kinda hilarious. But then I love a good–by which I mean bad–pun.

But then when the bunny tries to ride down the hill, a catastrophe results!

The Star Wars calendar seems to be fixated on this Rebels TV show that I’ve never seen. It’s not that great of a model if you ask me, sorry. They should have marked the box “Star Wars Rebels” as a warning not to buy it.

For Christmas Build Up, I think this is a puppy, but it could be any number of adorable quadrupeds.

And here’s the airplane – I was thinking of a Piper Cub mostly. I couldn’t find a good way to model the tailwheel or skid, though.

[Added Dec 13th] Here’s the instructions for the airplane. I guess I forgot to go back and edit this post, though I published the instructions on Flickr on the 4th.
