My parents tell me that in my childhood I have made some amazing LEGO creations. I don’t know about that, because apparently my creations were not amazing enough to take pictures of. All of my creations were limited to what we today refer to as the City Collection.
Things changed dramatically when I received my first Technik set; a red sports car with a mid-mounted engine and pop-up headlights. Everything was different about it and how it came together, and frankly after I assembled it I was very limited as to what I could do with it. I ended up turning it into a super tank for CITY people but that was about it. Technik and I never really took off. Even today, I still haven’t finished my Unimog which I got for Christmas two years ago – caveat being that I’m working on it with my little daughter.
People who create original Technik pieces get my respect. When they make something is rather unbelievable, such as this amazingly detailed radio-controlled Caterham Seven with a working, uhmm, EVERYTHING… I just watch, sit back, and realize that I will never amount to much.
