About this creation
Lego Miller Park Version 8: Current Model

This model is the latest version of a personal long standing project. To get more history on this project please click HERE to learn about it from the beginning.

After utilizing MLCad to plan one last set of major changes it was time to temporarily take Miller Park off display to implement them. I removed the model from display at MSOE's Walter Schroeder Library and began changes on Saturday October 24th, 2010. Since I was working around my work schedule, I had all the bricks I thought I needed and began construction on the key feature, landscaping, before I even had the model back. I finished the model just in time for display at TrainTime 2010 at MSOE. Due to tight time constraints and software problems I only partially updated the MLCad model and thus don't have an accurate updated parts count for Version 8. My estimated brick count would be 35,000 with a Lego brick value of $7,500.
Version 8 includes the following changes:

  • Complete landscaping and building surroundings within the current model footprint

  • Addition of tile to entire building roof surface for smoother roof operation and easier dusting
  • Addition of ~30 working Lego concourse lights so building hallways and visible detailed rooms light up

  • Expansion of the "LED" panels between the Loge and Terrace Levels

  • Added Service Level rooms

  • Added Fire Protection piping and sprinklers

  • Two additional powered Mindstorms for enhanced lighting and more accurate roof control (Model now has 6 Mindstorms total)

I believe the resulting Version 8 model is the best Miller Park representation I can create with the size limitations I have. I have no future plans to update the model with the exception of the scoreboard and repairing a Mindstorm electrical lighting overload.

Future Display Information

I'm excited to announce the next major display will be "The Lego Americana Roadshow" located within Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, WI. My display will be one of a few local themed Lego models to join several large scale Washington D.C. landmarks built by Lego Master Builders. This show features the following buildings but other displays are available as well:

  • White House
  • Statue of Liberty
  • U.S. Capital Building
  • Lincoln Memorial
  • Supreme Court
  • Washington Monument
  • Old North Church
  • Jefferson Memorial
  • Independence Hall

The main show runs from Thursday June 11, 2015 to Sunday June 28, 2015. My stationary model can be found on the 1st Floor at the Northwest corner of Center Court in a storefront window with some Brewer's apparel displays.
Please note that Miller Park will only be on display at Mayfair Mall from Wednesday June 17th - Wednesday June 24th even though the main show runs longer.

The model will be removed from the Lego Americana Roadshow early to be featured at the Neuroscience Group Field at Wisconsin Timber Rattlers Fox Cities Stadium in Appleton, WI as part of their 2015 "LEGO Night" themed game. The game will be Thursday June 25th at 7:05pm at 2400 N. Casaloma Drive Appleton, WI 54913. Unlike 2014's LEGO Night game, I will be at the model during the entire game and will be available to answer questions and operate the roof. Please note that you will need to purchase a ticket for the night's game in order to see the model. If I'm located in the same spot as last year, the model & I will be just inside the main entrance in the covered area.

There is a slight possibility the model will return to the Louisville Slugger Museum in 2016 or 2017 for another display. Check back for more details once we get closer.

Past Display Information

Due to repeated requests and disappointment from not being at TrainTime 2009, the model reappeared at TrainTime 2010 at MSOE on March 6th and 7th. The newly revised model proved to be a big hit once again and drew consistent onlookers.

A fellow student in my MSOE Senior Design class told someone at the Milwaukee Art Museum about my model and I was called about a display. The model was displayed at the Milwaukee Art Museum on Friday 2/11/2011 from 5pm to midnight as part of the "MAM After Dark: Mr. Wright" event. Waves of people stopped by to see the model and all were impressed. This event also proved how beneficial carts can be; I don't foresee moving the model again without one! While I don't have any Lego projects in the works, I plan to create a model of this museum at some point in the future.

The model reappeared at MSOE's TrainTime 2011 on March 5th and 6th. It drew constant attention even though it was the same model shown in 2010. Using a newly purchased cart proved to be a big back saver once again. I have no idea why I didn't think about that sooner!

In December 2010 I was approached by an MSOE professor about helping create a Lego Leaning Tower of Pisa. I lent some of my Legos to the MSOE Architectural Engineering Institute student group to create a mock up for the model. This was done so they could determine the type and quantity of new bricks to buy. While my involvement with the Leaning tower project was minimal, I was invited to display at the Italian Community Center and Festa Italiana as a result. The model was displayed at the Italian Community Center at 631 E. Chicago St Milwaukee, WI 53202 prior to Festa Italiana 2011.

Following the Italian Community Center display, the model was moved to Festa Italiana July 21st to 24th 2011 as part of the Piazza di Lego. Unfortunately, I was only able to attend the event on Friday of the Fest but being able to show the model to another diverse crowd was a great experience. After kids were done being amazed with the Lego Leaning Tower model and Miller Park they were able to particapte in Lego building and contests set up by the ICC.

From March 2, 2013 to September 2, 2013 the model was displayed at the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory in downtown Louisville, Kentucky as part of their "Big Leagues, Little Bricks" exhibit. The roof was operated 1-3 times daily during this display and worked almost flawlessly for the 16,000 visitors who visited. A big thanks goes out my brother Kurtis, Nathan Stalvey, and the rest of the Louisville Slugger team who helped make this display happen! The new black base contribution is a great addition to the model!

On Wednesday July 16, 2014 the model was displayed at the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers Fox Cities Stadium in Appleton, WI as part of their 2014 "LEGO Night" themed game. Up until this display request I had never heard of this MiLB minor league baseball team but was excited to learn they feed players to the Milwaukee Brewers. While I was personally unable to attend the game night itself I was happy to arrange the display so a new group of adults and kids could see it.

Enjoy looking and feel free to e-mail me at if you have any questions or comments. If you like my project and are a MOCpage member, please take time to rate it or write a review.

Thank You to everyone who has helped make this project a continued success!

Interior Pictures

Infield: Notice the roof pillar and hinge is now Blue, the closest I can get to the olive green steel color with Legos. (The Lego Statue of Liberty has the perfect green, but I have to be economical and realistic here)

Outfield: Notice the cleaning crew in left field waiting to open the gate and get on the field for touch ups.

Field & "LED" Lighting Only. The room would be completely dark if these Lego lights were off!

Press Stories

To increase attendance at MSOE's annual TrainTime show, I was interviewed by Gus Gnorski from FOX 6 on Friday morning 3/5/10 for a short "teaser."

Display Pictures

TrainTime 2010 (3/6/2010 & 3/7/2010)

Most of the pictures on this page are actually from this event as I didn't take many at home due to time constraints preparing the new model for this show.

Milwaukee Art Museum (2/10/2011 to 2/12/2011)

I left half the case off during this display since I was present and the crowd was easier to handle compared with other events. Spectators appreciated getting a better look inside.

It was really hard to miss the model in the surrounding whiteness of this great Milwaukee landmark.

TrainTime 2011 (3/4/2011 to 3/8/2011)

It was great talking to new and returning guests. This show marked the third anniversary the model was on display.

Italian Community Center (6/16/2011 to 7/16/2011)

The model was hard to miss due to it's location right next to the main entrance and main banquet hall. The skirt proved to be a nice addition.

Festa Italiana (7/16/2011 to 7/25/2011)

It was great speaking to the waves of people that heard about the Leaning Tower of Pisa or my Miller Park Model. Everyone was impressed with both models but loved the fact Miller Park moved!

Note the green signs on the side of the model. They contained a list of interesting things that could be found in the model and added another dimension of interest. Many people took the time to find all of the items of interest and found things they wouldn't have noticed with a quick look.

Louisville Slugger: "Big Leagues, Little Bricks" (3/2/2013 to 9/2/2013)

This front view of the model is my favorite picture of the project thus far. Large scale pictures of the real stadium and the racing sausages were great added touches are a great representation of the whole stadium experience!

Back side of the model with a better view of the famous racing sausages in the background.

As you can see this was a big hit for the museum. I was told this picture represented almost every day! It was great to hear that so many people were able to see the model as I'm sure it encouraged a lot of kids who visited from all over the United States.

Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (7/16/2014)

Picture coming soon.

This was the display location in February 2011.

This is looking great! Im just wondering, how many studs is the field from home plate to the fence and how many minifigs does it seat?
