Recycled Brick Mission Statement:
"A Good Foundation Starts With Little Plastic Bricks."
It all started way back, with the Galaxy Explorer and Classic Space, the fascination with LEGO. Taking random pieces, stacking them together, and making something. Then I grew up. Not for long. After digging out the old sets from storage, putting them back together and realizing I am missing pieces, I discovered a huge online community of people of all ages building things with LEGO. I am back.
I have a lot of Classic Space sets, enjoy the space theme, but haven't recently built anything space. I always wanted to build something very large, years ago, but never could because of the amount of pieces I had. Now I have the pieces but needed a subject. After driving by the Space Needle in Seattle everyday, I found the subject. After taking it to BrickCon 2008 in Seattle. I found that I needed to change a few things. The elevators needed to work more consistently and the top looked a little too small. It would be great that I could make it overall taller and bigger. 15-17 feet should be the correct height if it was scaled to the minifig. I want it to actually fit inside and not have to keep it disassembled.
There are not any other Seattle landmarks that interest me so I am building an original project. DeAlynn Towers. There will be three towers. One will be for corporate office space and retail. The two side towers will be residential. They will be around 6 to 8 feet tall. There will be a green space and a lot of other surprises. The construction site is being prepared and going to break ground in 2009.
There is another large project that I really want to build but it would be large but very spectacular. That is all I can say for now.
Someday I may get back into space. I completed one of the two large projects that I wanted to do. A large structure. A very large space ship is something I have always wanted to build as well. Maybe someday.
Or I could change my mind and do something from down the street or something no one has ever seen before. Check back to find out.
