Everyone loves an awesome Blacktron build. Ok, maybe it's just me. But I get a sense of immense joy seeing cool LEGO builds decked out in the distinctive black and yellow colors of the original LEGO bad guys, the Blacktron. I especially like when builders do mash ups with iconic things from other "universes" done in Blacktron style. So it is in that spirit that I present to you the Blacktron Imperial Shuttle. Head on over to the YouTube channel and let me know what you think. What other things should I Blacktronify? Is that even a word, "Blacktronify?" If not, it should be.
One of my recent projects has been building a scale model of a World War II battleship, the Roma. I have always wanted to build a large navy ship and decided to go ahead and embark on the build. I chose the Roma because of the distinctive markings on the ship, especially the bold red and white diagonal strips on the deck of the ship. The ship is over 47 inches long, nearly as long as the UCS Super Star Destroyer I took photos along the way and decide to do a series of episodes on the PittBrickyard YouTube channel to showcase interesting things about the build. Episode I was posted. I also did a very quick #Shorts video with a quick preview of the finished build. I will be doing more of the longer build episodes. So stay tuned for that.
