M.O. Round 2 - George G. vs David Wang . . George G. vs David Wang in the 2012 MOCOlympics category: "Famous historical figures: Abe Lincoln? William Wallace? Sir Edmund Percival Hillary? Who is your favorite historical figure? Give us a moc showing us your choice doing what they’re famous for." As soon as I read my category, I knew exactly which Famous Historical Figure I wanted to do... Isambard Kingdom Brunel! Brunel is my favourite historical figure as he was the father of the Industrial Revolution of Britain and was born ever so close to where I live :) He was a genius inventor/engineer, whose projects never always successful but the ones that were changed the country! He constructed the Great Western Railway, built many bridges, dug loads of tunnels (including the first under-river one!)and invented lots of revolutionary steam ships. In my model, I wanted to represent most of his feats in one scene, and I did so by creating a ship building dockyard, featuring a railway bridge. Look on and enjoy! Brunel himself riding on his personal micro steam-paddler. In the ship building hall 2 new steam-paddler boilers are being lowered in ready to be installed into a brand new ship. The paddling wheels of the ship are also constructed at the yard. Someone really should have got the chimney sweep out of the funnel before they lit the blast furnace up :P "I" for Isambard ;) I tried to spell out "IKB" but the letter "K" was not playing along... In the blast furnace room they're smelting some iron to form the inner sections of the paddle-steamer wheels. The steam engine is based of Brunel's 2-2-2, "The North Star". Please take notice of the tyres used for the chimney, the C-3PO head used as a dial, the helmet used for the safety valve and the red heads and hair used for the front buffers. "Paddle-steamer away!" ______________________________________________________ The final word: I found it quite funny how I just finished a LEGO model depicting the life's work of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, creator of the Great Western Railway, and tomorrow is the UK's largest LEGO event - The Great Western LEGO show - held in STEAM, the museum of the Great Western Railway which holds lots of Brunel's items including The North Star...... ...... and I can't attend! Good luck David!
