Team Valley Trading Estate

My Team Valley model for UK Land Estates is now complete – shown below with aerial shot of the real site at the top. Model is 60×25 inches, scale 1:2000 to represent the 3km long site. A very challenging project at this scale – hard to get detail for individual buildings so this was more about overall feel of this very large site.

See it at my North East Lego Landmarks exhibition which opens at The Centre for Life, Newcastle, on January 14th…

I’ve had this build on my mind for a couple of years. I wanted to be able to capture as much of the detail as possible, including the curvy nature of the body, whilst maintaining strength and stability in a free-standing model, with no non-Lego framework or glue. I’m pleased with the result! The model is just over 70 cm wide and about 30 cm high.

Lego store display

Really excited to have installed a few of my smaller models in the Lego store at the Metro Centre, Gateshead. They will be there until July, as part of the community display box organised by the Brickish Association.
