Today is the 16th day of the LEGO Advent Calendars and Christmas Build Up set, and we get a nice little airplane (City), a table with some scissors (Friends), a silver C-3PO (Star Wars), and a cute micro scale castle (Build Up). I built an owl with leftover parts.
The City model is a cute little airplane, continuing the micro aviation subtheme.
The wings are made using this 3-way piece which I thought was a brilliant idea … the OCD in me wants to rebuild and reshoot the photo with the piece aligned more symmetrically, but the lazy in me seems to be winnning the battle.
For Friends, we get a table with scissors and a baby bottle?
Star Wars gives us C-3PO in his silver/grey color from before he was gold plated.
Here are the three Advent models together.
For Christmas Build Up we make this lovely little castle – one of my favorites yet.
[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 17 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!
I used leftover parts to build an owl.
Just like the real thing his head can rotate around to face back.
