The best Battlestar Galactica built out of LEGO bricks

1 Share

All of this has happened before and will happen again – While there have been many worthy builders to attempt both the classic, modern, and “inspired-by” incarnations of the famed sci-fi vessel Battlestar Galactica at a variety of scales the latest iteration is a wondrous thing of beauty. Brandon Griffith‘s labor of love is 47 inches (1.2 meters) long and took almost 300 hours to build. It debuted this past weekend at BrickCon 2018 in Seattle.

Brandon even has a wicked custom carrying case for the ship:

The final model as presented is a bit of a joint effort: photos are by Tommy Williamson and Leander Rappmann while the model features working lights from Brickstuff. Additionally, the Galactica includes custom printing by Citizen Brick, one of The Brothers Bricks’ sponsors.

You know how Einstein figured out that the speed of light was constant, and everything else had to change for consistency? My theory is like his, except not smart or good.

I don't think this is what the song "Sunrise, Sunset" from Fiddler on the Roof meant.

Sounds like the time system that was used in the Arabian peninsula. Midnight was when the sun set, you adjusted your clocks to midnight when you saw the sun go down.

I think the 6-6 convention was from medieval Europe.

Yep. They're called "variable hours" in Jewish law, and I'm hardly surprised Arabia as a whole used that system. I honestly think Rome did, too, but I forget.

Attention, cet article REGORGE de jeux de mots extrêmement débiles (je ne sais pas ce qui m’a pris). À part ça, vous apprendrez peut-être deux trois trucs (ou pas). Dans tous les cas, amusez-vous bien 🙂

Activate strategic reconnaissance : Codename SR-71

1 Share

It never ceases to amaze me that the Blackbird SR-71 was an invention of the 1960s. One can only wonder what flight technology exists today that we will only learn of decades from now. The sleek body and shape of this black beauty are captured well even it is brick form. Builder and designer Plane Bricks even made sure it fit the two required flight crew for operation with a pilot in the front, and reconnaissance systems officer behind complete with flight panelling details.

Check out some of the other detailing where the bird is also designed with a proper landing gear and storage during flight and flaps that tilt.
