more pictures thanks to
a FB friend sent this to me from the BrickFair convention in Virginia going on this weekend by Dulles (http://www.brickfair.com/). I would love to have the time and skill to build this.
The ship took 750 hours, and most of it was translating the blueprints to the finished product. Quite amazing.
update from who talked to the builder
It was made by Adrian Drake of Ohio. It is seven feet long, weighs 135lbs, is made of 70,000 bricks and took 21 months to build. Total build time 475 hours. The builder only had to buy $800 worth of bricks for this build because his collection was so extensive that it covered the rest. It has all of the compartments of the original set except the engine room, which he said he could not make while maintaining structural integrity. It debuted today at Brickfair in Chantilly, Virginia, and was pretty much the talk of the show.
Oh, and the cargo bay and firefly drive light up, the shuttle detaches and the wings swing out, and the engines do rotate.
Missing 5 year old girl: Police search in Machynlleth, POWYS, WALES.
A five-year-old girl called April Jones has been missing in Machynlleth in mid Wales since 7:30 yesterday evening.
April was last seen playing her bike with friends near garages at her home in Machynlleth. Her friends say they saw her get into a light coloured van which then drove off. Local police are now treating this as an abduction and a team of mountain rescue volunteers are in the area to help search the town and mountains.
Dyfed-Powys Police says "indication is that April Jones got into the van willingly, she got into driver's side", The van had small front and large back and police believe the van may have been a Land Rover or Ford Connect-type vehicle.
