Legos: small plastic pieces of divine bliss
The uniting theme behind most of my lego creations
is OddJobbers - sort of mercenaries,
mainly "people who get things done". Roughly based on Robert
A. Heinlein's classic "We Also Walk Dogs" which discusses
a general services firm, that will provide any legal service you request,
and are just a phonecall away.
Jon Palmer over at zemi.net had the GREAT idea of starting a .space building contest to make spacecraft inspired by the classic WWII era P-38 Lightning. It's really insired some great desings - CHECK IT OUT!
Crimson Skies - Set up a whole page dedicated to this subset of lego fun :)

Here is a Lego Futron Monorail base and assorted ships I got in a "parts" auction on e-bay. It actually included 95% of TWO monorail bases and something like 6 other sets including a Blacktron Terrax. It was worth at least twice what I piad for it.
A Lego Mosaic attempt. Too bad I picked such a bad scale for this mosaic of Betty Page... ah well.
|Original Lego designs are often called "My Own Creation" or MOC's on Lugnet. I was in a quite a creative slump a while back and decided to reverse engineer other people's creations hoping for inspiration. It was an interesting and often frustrating experience, but definitely worthwhile. I dubbed these rip-offs "My Own Re-Creations". The Zadkiel and Red Streak were the only survivors of a mid winter deconstruction-fest. I kind of miss the Raziel, it sure was pretty, too bad it was so clumsy and fragile.

P.S. All I realy want is a woman
who loves legos too...
Well that may be simplifying matters somewhat, but it would be nice :)
