Party in the CIA . Agents got swagger...In the CIA, it's a party everyday! . Listen to Weird Al's "Party in the CIA" (copyright 2011, Volcano Entertainment) while you view!
Building notes: I just had to get that out of my system. With moving to the new house, and then some much needed sorting (can you say MocOlympics?), it's been too long. I got Weird Al's new album, Alpocalypse, for Christmas (thanks, Mom) and this song got stuck in my head...So now, I pass on the disease to you!
Here's the main scene. I was pleased to be able to use those huge skate ramp pieces I got recently. Along with the airplane in the first scene. Jealous, Chris? (My brother has wanted that airplane for years, and now I have it! Ha-ha!) By the way, thanks to my wife, who let me set up a Lego area in our new house. A Lego table! She's the best.
This scene highlights a fun technique: using brown boxes for various wood textures. I've used in several times, but this is the first time I've shown it clearly.
I built the van first, about four weeks ago. Yes, it's been a slow project. My favorite part is that it is about 75% studs down, with studs out and up as well. Why studs down? So I could make the fenders the way I wanted, of course!
Lastly, thank you to everyone who sent kind wishes to me and my family. I posted in October about buying our first home, and now I can happily say that we are moved in and comfortable in our new home. Thank you God, for the wonderful blessing of providing for our every need!
