Chinese New Year Dragon

On

My first created and second most popular project the "Chinese New Year Dragon" needs support! It includes a dragon dance display complete with brick-built dragon, display base and lion dancers!

It only has 57 days left and it needs only 93 more supporters to get an extension!

Please support it here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/76375

As always thanks so much for all the support we've had so far! Please spread the word for this project and indeed all my projects on social media!


Darwin update

On

After a few comments, I have decided to add something to Darwin's vignette.

A younger minifigure of Darwin could be added in addition to the old one. Minor changes can be made to the vignette so it suits both Darwins. In the picture above Darwin is observing a finch, much like the ones he found in the Galapagos Islands. The only major difference between the two vignettes is the branch, so the set would include pieces allowing the owner to display either old Darwin or young Darwin.

As always, thanks for the support so far!

Can we get some help from social media! Twitter and Facebook are everything when it comes to getting to 10k, so let's get some help!


Franklin update

On

I have decided to upgrade Rosalind Franklin's vignette, as I felt it was kinda dull.

Now wooden floorboards have been added. Also, a small desk with a drawer and two jars is now at the back.

Thanks for the support so far!

George Washington Carver

On

After some comments, I have decided to add George Washington Carver, inventor and botanist.

Known for his innovations in agricultural science, Carver revolutionised farming with his discoveries relating to the uses of peanuts as an alternative crop to cotton, finding ways to produce plastics, dyes, gasoline and many more products from peanuts.

Included in this vignette are:

  • A minifigure of Carver
  • A microscope with a small sample of peanut
  • A potted peanut plant
  • A small flask containing a peanut extract

Thanks for the great support so far, let's try and push to 1000 for an official Lego comment!
