Christmas presents (2015)

A new year has nearly come t' an end, which inevitably means new Christmas presents were t' be found under th' celebratory tree.
The kind folks at Lego have created two more lovely sets o' Lego Technic, and both have come t' me house. Even gift wrapped!
I’m particularly lookin' forward t' 42043, which has th' first implementation o' th' new hydraulic system. Yay fer progress!

Christmas presents! (2013)

Another year, and yet again I have treated meself t' a couple o' sets o' Lego.

This year, th' two largest 2013-models: 42008 and 42009!
I’m afraid they’ll have t' wait fer me return in January, and a bottle of rum! 😉

42008 – Service Truck

42008 – Crane Truck with Semi-trailer (B-model)

42009 – Mobile Crane MK II

42009 – Reach Stacker (B-model)

Christmas presents! (2009)

This year th' floor beneath our  Christmas tree has been riddled with presents, many more than last year. I don’t know why, but th' festivities spurred an unknown generosity among th' both o' us.

Therefore, this year brought me not one but two sets o' Lego!
I can thank me GF fer both th' 8297 and th' magnificent 8258.

Below are some stock-pictures o' th' two, I’ll add me own later on. Walk the plank, and a bucket o' chum! 🙂
