Well, finally, after just under a month, I’ve managed to find enough time to complete box 1.  Still another 3 to go yet.  For those with good memories wondering what happened to the 5th box?  That’s just wheels and tyres.  They’ve been fitted and balanced already and are awaiting the […]

More investigation showed that it was going to be a highly detailed kit with over 2500 pieces.  I’ve always liked the Technic kits and this one appealed […]

Lego Porsche

I had this bright idea to start a blog to document some of my adventures and hobbies. Mostly for my own benefit, but if, along the way I end up entertaining others and creating some interest then that’s an added bonus. I’m Geoff and I’ve been photographing under the MotorDrive […]
