Hello and welcome to ozbrick.com. The purpose of this website is to document my time with LEGO. After the “dark ages” (the time not enjoying LEGO) between 1988 and 2015, I have rediscovered how much fun LEGO can be as an adult.
Furthermore, after finding so many interesting resources on the Internet about LEGO, I thought it would be fun to share my time with you out there. So if you like it, great. If you don’t – there’s plenty of other sites to visit.
OzBrick will be updated randomly, so there could be ten new posts a month – or none, depending on how busy life is.
Please note that I am located in Australia so will be referring to prices in Australian dollars, using the Queen’s English (for example “colour”, not “color”), and it would seem that Australia gets new sets later than other countries.
We also drive on the left-hand side of the road.
In the meanwhile, have fun and make something… first, tables. Ordered a few large folding tables from Alloyfold. Apart from good-value tables – they’re a non-profit that does some charity work.
After dragging them into the home-office-LEGO room, they were larger than first imagined…
And that’s only two tables! One more will be added later when I shift around some other furniture. The plates are just an experimental layout at the moment, much more planning to come.
Notice the grey and green felt – easily obtainable from Spotlight or elsewhere, and provides a cheap method of creating a base surface. I’ll use some dark blue later on to create a water area, ideal for a port and somewhere to put Prison Island and a lighthouse.
Well that’s all for now, stay tuned for the next update which should show some basic layout progress and perhaps a set review.
