The Gutenberg Press
Tue, Apr 21st 2015 5:43p   Warren Elsmore
I get asked for instructions for many of the large diorama models in my books all the time. Usually, it's a fairly simple answer and I'm afraid that answer is no! With models like St Pancras (yes, I've been asked for instructions for that) using 100s of thousands of bricks - it's simply just not practicable to create instructions. However, this week I was asked on email (my details are on the contact page) about the Gutenberg Press model - which is actually a pretty small build. Now, I'd lo

Whilst we crack on at the orbit, I'm continuing to post videos to my Youtube channel - Episodes 6, 7 and 8 are all now available. However, I interrupt this exciting news story to bring you something even cooler. I've been waiting a long time to post this! Let me tell you a story....About 10 months ago, I received an email from the British Antarctic Survey. They'd seen a picture of my Aurora Australis model, with a micro antarctic station in front. This one in fact, from Brick Wonders:

Occasionally we get to park Mia in some rather cool places...After opening in Woodhorn this morning, it was straight down to London to install 'Bricks in the Sky' into the ArcelorMittal Orbit. An exhibition 80 meters into the sky and a real building challenge. Yup, that's just a part of the structure that needs to be built from 2x4 bricks. It's going to be interesting at least and hopefully I might see some of you there!

What better way to spend a couple of minutes on a Friday afternoon than watch the next episode? Remember, tickets for Bricks in the Sky are on sale now if you want to see both the sculpture itself, the exhibition and a 2m high model made just from LEGO bricks!

Bricks in the Sky!
Fri, Jan 30th 2015 7:40a   Warren Elsmore
I've put models into museums, shopping centres and corporate events - why not up in the air?This coming half term weekend, I'll be at the ArcelorMIttal Orbit in the Queen Elizabeth Park (aka the big red swirly sculpture next to the London Olympic Stadium!) for Bricks in the Sky. Londonist have pictures :-)Over the course of 9 days, I'll be live building a model of the sculpture in LEGO bricks - 2 meters tall! Not only that, but we'll also be bringing a selection of models from Brick City, Br

It's not there for long, but if you're in Edinburgh right now my Christmas window is still visible on South Bridge in Blackwells bookshop until Christmas Eve. If not, sit back, enjoy the video and Merry Christmas! Warren

Sat, Dec 6th 2014 9:03a   Warren Elsmore
It's been a bit busy here in the studio. Not least due to BRICK 2014 which happened last weekend. Just in case you didn't have time to be there for all 8 days (but thanks to those that did!), here it is - in 4 minutes...

Last weekend was the annual Brickish club show at STEAM - The Museum of the Great Western Railway. If you missed it, then what better way to review it than replaying the live web tv broadcast that happened on Saturday? (I'm in it quite a lot including the VT!)

The Forth Road Bridge - in LEGO bricks!
Mon, Aug 25th 2014 6:33a   Warren Elsmore
This morning, I've been based in the National Museum of Scotland, unveiling this - the Forth Road Bridge: We've been working on this one for a while! To celebrate the bridge's 50th birthday there are a host of activities going on as part of the Forth Bridges Festival - this being just a little part of it. The bridge is possibly one of the most technical models that I've ever created. Not least because it has to look right - it will be 'inspected'

Adult night at the Manchester LEGOLAND Discovery Centre
Tue, Aug 12th 2014 8:20a   Warren Elsmore
No, not that sort of adult night! If you weren't aware, the LDC in Manchester doesn't usually accept unaccompanied adults - ie, those without kids. But, they've let me know that for one night they are! Details below. Sadly, I can't make it but if you've not been and would like to see the Manchester miniland, then this is a great opportunity! Adult Fans of LEGO® Night at LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Manchester 3rd September 2014 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmHave you wanted to visit the LEGOLAND® Discove

Tue, Jun 24th 2014 5:10a   Warren Elsmore
Yes, it's finally here... Sorry for the very long wait but it's been a really busy year. A Really, REALLY busy year! Anyway, here we are - episode 8, the final episode, of how to build an airport. I hope you've enjoyed keeping track of these over the last few months and it's inspired you to have a go at building something yourself. Now the only question left is "what next?" ;-)

J.K Rowling explains why she is supporting the Better Together campaign (politics again)
Wed, Jun 11th 2014 8:20a   Warren Elsmore
I don't think I could have put it better myself. I have exactly the same concerns about the lack of verifiable facts and, well, I personally just think it's the wrong thing to do.J. K Rowlings' Full statement here.PLEASE read it through if you live in Scotland as even if you don't agree with her stance - there are important questions to be answered.The only way in which my views differ from hers is what might happen if Scotland did vote yes.

Dander Supporters update - day 3
Wed, Jun 4th 2014 7:03a   Warren Elsmore
Well, it's day 3 of the Dander support now. I may break out the camera this afternoon again ;-)A quick update on where we are though. Here's a quick map from trackme, which is tracking the support van - not the walkers: Why the van? Well, this is set to update about once a minute. See the long straight lines? Well, the roads aren't that good - it's just the poor reception we're getting uploading the data. Not just bad phone signals (lots of them),

Tue, Jun 3rd 2014 6:50a   Warren Elsmore
This week, Kitty and I are in the far west coast of wales - supporting 6 good friends of our on a walk for the charity Medecin Sans Frontiers. It's a big challenge - 100 miles in 5 days! So of course, we're brought the van with us to support them. This will explain the challenge ahead: Expect lots of 'dandering' (British slang for walking) updates this week. And if you enjoy them, then PLEASE DONATE!

LEGO Multistud Watch review
Sat, May 24th 2014 2:00p   Warren Elsmore
I've had my eyes on one of these for a long while, though never got around to really doing anything about it... However, with full disclosure, the very kind people at Clictime unexpectedly asked me if I would like one to wear! There haven't asked me to do anything other than give them a little feedback on it, so I thought what better way than do that than a review? The box Gorgeous or what? OK, unboxing videos are usually fairly unin
