Yep, bigger is better! It's funny that as you get older, people look at you odd if you say you build things with legos. BUT... much like the guys that build huge railroad sets in their basements, the bigger you make it, the more acceptable it becomes.
I was once told that I am an artist with a different than normal medium. We are all artists, creating sculptures as wonderful as any of the ones in Museums.

Working large in Lego seems to be almost an addiction. For me it's definitely one of those "you won't ever go back" kind of things.

When I did the Invisible Hand, it seemed massive. Now I'm like, "pssssh...should've made it twelve feet." Goldman's latest MOC was 4 x 8 feet (and probably every bit of 3 feet high), and it seemed about right to me. A couple of years ago, I would've collapsed at the thought. Now it's kind of the next goal.

Of course, my collection will need several thousands of dollars invested before I'm able to achieve that goal, but now that I've worked large, going bigger is all I can think about...God help me!

I am honoured by your invitation. I am a French builder of big space ships.

The space cruiser Balmung is a 5,8foot. And, the next one will be a little smaller, 5foot only.


Welcome Mindrunner! I really like your ships, very cool. Isn't it great to have an idea in your head, then to have it become a real thing you can touch? I don't know how many times I had stopped just to look at one of my ships ( I think I've built around 10 4 foot or better). There's always a new angle to see it from, and the itch to build a newer, bigger, better one comes along... and you just hate to tear the old one apart, but, the new one will have this, and that... ya know?

I cant wait till I am done with college and I can afford to buy more Legos. Every ship I build now has to be bigger than the last.

hey any good techniques for building a big ship (4 ft and over) I don't have very many large structural pieces, mostly a couple types of bricks and plates.
