Just inside the door were two bridges, this one is Kings Bridge, over the South Esk River at the Gorge.
And this very long one is Tasman Bridge, Hobart
Most of the displays were kits, and not that different from last year, except there was a continuous layer of people around the tables so it was hard to get close enough to see anything, or take photos. Mostly it was disappointing.
Village Cinema. That’s not a kit.
I think this was supposed to solve the cube, but mostly it was running for a few minutes then stopping with an error. The arm on the left was turning the cube and the one on the right was scanning. There’s a very short, squished up by Youtube video of it.
There was this train layout along one side, with a really long train running around it.
I tried to get some photos of the running train but camera said it was too fast 🙁
At one end was a little display entitled “A Brief History of Lego Trains” but most of the mdoels were from 2000 or later. The blue one is from 1966.
This is the really long train that was running around the outside. It starts at the red arrow on the left, goes off the photo, comes back along the bottom of the photo, goes off the photo again, and comes back onto the photo to end at the red arrow on the right.
These are kits. The Death Star at left back is available in shops.
These next ones are custom made. The guy there says he looks at a photo and then makes them up. This one is a “1972 Mercedes Benz 280SE”.
Didn’t get a complete photo of this one’s information but from the bits, I think it’s “1964 Ford F100”
This is bl_ank designs who make customised Lego jewellery.
Public Buildings in Launceston.
And awful flash photo the post office. I think I have a better one from last year.
The Great Ball Contraption: the balls go up and down, and through all the bits. Is rather cool. There’s a very short vidoe that didn’t get anywhere near YouTube.
When I arrived the end of the queue was just outside the door (where those people are on the right, just outside the cafe). There was just one guy taking the money. When I left, the queue stretched back towards and park and then doubled back on itself. Bad organisation there.
A dragon to guard the end.
