Day #3622Title: 918 Has Landed!
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: This little spaceship brings back so many happy memories. It is the LL918 Space Transport and was released in 1979 as part of the first wave of what is now known as the Classic Space range. I had one as a child and loved it – the height of cool to a space-obsessed 10 year old. But just before I went to university, I decided I had grown out of LEGO and sold all my Classic Space sets to a friend’s little brother. Oh how I berate myself for that, 30 years later! But eBay is a wonderful thing, and my bid on this old friend wasn’t too outrageous, so I was delighted with it arrived safely in the post this morning. It’s in pretty good shape for its age. I might have a little nostalgic swoosh every now and then, but it won’t be played with too much.

Day #3620Title: Tiny Toyshop
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I put together this little Toys ‘R’ Us the other day, it came in kit form. But I wanted to sit it on a baseplate with roads and pavements which means it will clip together with my other Micropolis models, so I added a bit of landscaping and a car park while I was at it.

Day #3618Title: Breakfast Meetup At The Mill
Location: Battlesbridge, Essex
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 7-14mm f/4 Lumix G Vario
Notes: Finally got out of the house today, to meet some geocaching friends for a late breakfast in the café on the top floor of Battlesbridge Antiques Centre. There was a good turnout and an excellent breakfast awaiting. Although it was rather cold and windy, the sun was out, so I enjoyed finding a few caches with friends afterwards.

Day #3617Title: Lever Court Prototype
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: I had another play with the Architecture Studio set today, coming up with this little block which initially came from an idea in The LEGO Architect book, but I gave it a few tweaks and my own spin. I’ve since redesigned it with LEGO Digital Designer to be even larger, I just need to find enough bricks to build it.
