For the first 24 days of this month, I posted my Advent 2017 posts with images of the three Advent Calendar models as well as that day’s Christmas Build-Up model. Also each day I built a MOC (My Own Creation) using the remaining parts from the Christmas Build-Up set. I made directions for each of these models and posted them in each day’s post, but in case you want to see them all in one place, here you go…

Today’s models are a very clever airplane (City), a snowboard and slope to ride on (Friends), and a micro scale First Order Transporter ship (Star Wars). From the Christmas Build-Up we build a ladybug, and I designed a snowman out of the leftover parts.

On the fifth day of the Advent calendars we get a cute little gingerbread house (City), a pug dog (Friends), and a man with a gun (Star Wars). Meanwhile the Christmas Build-Up model is a little windmill, and with the leftovers I built a tropical fish.

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.

For the Christmas Build-Up model, we get a baby peacock, and I built a MOC of a snowplow.

The time has come once more for my daily series of posts featuring the LEGO Advent calendars! This year we have once more the same three themes – City, Friends, and Star Wars – and like last year there is a 24-in-1 “Christmas Build-Up” set 40253. The latter was a freebie that you got in November for making a $100 purchase from LEGO – it’s no longer available from them, but you may find them on Amazon. (The Advent calendars may be sold out at your LEGO store as well, but using the Amazon links above helps support this blog and is most appreciated.)
