I LUG NY members were challenged to come up with Rovers for our first Monthly Building Challenge of 2017…Febrovery!
FebRovery is a themed building activity hosted over on flickr. To learn more visit https://www.flickr.com/groups/1841195@N22/discuss/
Back to our building challenge. Members were given very “loose” parameters (build a rover, 150ish parts, and rovers must include at least 1 wheel). We had 8 members build a total of 26 rovers. Our entries were all varied in size, color and usage.
Members in attendance at February’s LUG meeting voted for their favorite rover by placing a 1×1 orange brick in front of their selection.
We hope you enjoy looking at the rover gallery here.
Stay tuned next month for our next building challenge (construction).
BrickFair Virginia was a great opportunity for ILUGNY to show off our “8x” NYC Skyline. Watch our interview with Matt Kay of Beyond the Brick and then stick around to watch us assemble the skyline (for the third time).
We discovered when we set the skyline up initially that it was heavy enough to curve the table, and make the tops of the buildings noticeably closer. So, this is the third attempt, with a giant (improvised) wooden base under the whole thing.
