Building Challenge #1: Space Vehicle Microbuild

Welcome to the inaugural Building Challenge at The Brick Collectors Building Challenge Blog!  New challenges will be announced on Fridays. Anyone of any age is welcome to participate – we’d love to see AFOL (Adult Fan of LEGO) models as well as those from teens down to toddlers – KFOLs (Kid Fans of LEGO)! 

To enter, post your model to your personal blog or other online gallery. When you submit, please indicate AFOL for adult entries, or KFOL for kid entries (up to age 16). Once a challenge is open, it will remain open for the remainder of the month. That way, you have more opportunities to play along. The "like" with each entry is just for fun & feedback.  Positive comments are always encouraged.

At the end of the month, we will select our favorite submissions to appear in the Builders' Spotlight for that month. We will select one KFOL entry and one AFOL entry for each challenge. In addition, if you have a blog, we will send you code for a special blog badge for your winning entry. 

Challenge Rules 
1. Be creative and have fun! 
2. When in doubt, see Rule #1. 

If you only have a few minutes to spend working on a submission, don’t let that stop you from joining in. If you want to spend a week working on something, you can do that, too. And if you are so in the zone that your model ends up straying from the challenge a bit, don’t let that stop you from participating. It’s all about rule #1!  If you need any assistance with posting a model, click the Challenge Guidelines tab for more info.

So let's get to it!
Building Challenge #1:  Space Vehicle Microbuild
This week's challenge is to build a microscale space vehicle.  Here are some inspiration models to get the ideas flowing:

Cargo Hauler by LEGOBoy, Age 7

Flying Saucer by LEGOMom
(The top of the model actually spins!)

Starship Enterprise by LEGODad
We can't wait to see what you contribute!  Don't forget to tag your entry AFOL or KFOL!


  1. I forgot to say in my entry (my star crusier) that I'm an afol and since coming out my dark age this is the first MOC I have done.

    Also let me know if you want me to add a link to the site from mine ;)

  2. Feel free to add a link. I'd be happy to add your site here, too! And welcome to the world of LEGO again. It's a great place to be. We really appreciate you joining our challenge - my son was thrilled to have someone play along! There's a great new challenge coming up Friday, too...

  3. Thanks, I have added the site to the links page. it was something I could enter as I don't have a lot of spare parts as I only get sets to be displayed so never take them apart except to clean, so my ship above was made from the spare pieces you get in new sets.
