Don't Make a Mess, Messerschmitt

I have a great respect for World War era LEGO builders.  Not only is it a unique theme, but it is (in my honest opinion) one of the hardest and most difficult to pull off well.  All vehicles during that time period had a very distinct look to their features.  Replicating the angles well, along with the overall shaping in order to be accurate, is almost a war all on its own.  My good friend and fellow LEGO enthusiast Matt K. is one of the builders who performs particularly well in this theme.  Normally, Matt recreates accurate model of tanks, occasionally building a different vehicle model such as a German U-boat and WC-52 jeep.  This time, he has branched out and built an aircraft, specifically a BF 109.  I personally have attempted to build this plane before, but have never gotten a completed MOC at this quality.  Every little detail is precisely executed which results in a very sleek model.  Job well done!  Safe flights ahead. . .

     My name is Nathaniel Stoner, and I am an very active LEGO builder.  I mostly build in the themes of castle and science-fiction, but I also dabble in other genres and create occasional random MOC's (My Own Creations). 

     When I was younger, I would get and build small LEGO sets for my birthday, but I was never really into them.  When they fell apart, I would become frustrated attempting to put them back together and would throw them in a box in my closet.  I couldn't stand them!

     Then, miraculously, I became addicted to the LEGO brick later in my teen years.  Ever since, I have continued to build up (pun intended) my collection of bricks and to expand my knowledge of techniques and building skills.  LEGO is truly more than a toy, its an art form and a way to express yourself.

     For the most part, I collect LEGO Star Wars (mainly the minifigs), which is probably my favorite LEGO theme.  I have a fairly decent collection, including some of the original 1999 sets, such as the Snowspeeder, X-Wing, and Naboo starfighter.  I also collected LEGO the Lord of the Rings when those sets first came out.  The minifigs are great, and the story remains one of my favorites ever. 

     My hope is to inspire other young (and perhaps even older) LEGO builders to unleash their inner creativity!  You can find me on my Flikr here
