Title: Classic Display
Presented by: Will Horner
Usually TexLUG presents totally, or mostly unique creations in the TexLUG display window. This month is a special case however. With Brick Fiesta this month, all TexLUG members where preparing their best works for that event. Will thankfully took the time to display the classic sets Space Shuttle Launch (1682) and Shell Service Station (6378). Here is what he has to say about this selection:
“I picked the shell station because it is built almost entirely of common bricks still available, and reached back to a time when Lego used real world products in the set. these things make it one of my favorite sets ever.”
“The shuttle set i picked because I’m a big fan of the space program. its the first set that really captured the reality of the shuttle/space program for me and still makes me think of the limitless reach of mans potential and how we can get these ideas across to our kids in the simplest of ways. Swooshing that shuttle around is to this day one of the things that always chokes me up a little. that’s what Lego can do.”
I would also like to add that Will and I both received the Shell Station for Christmas when we it was new on the market, as I imagine many of our the AFOLs in our age range did and I am happy to see it on display.
