Uke's HD 2016

KLUG roared into their summer show season with a return to Uke’s Harley Davidson.  This is our second year partnering with Uke’s and we have expanded to two full show days.  There was plenty of black and orange on hand not only on the bikes, but on the new KLUG members in attendance.

Several new creations were on display from new and old members.  The largest of which was a custom minifig scale city layout by new member Duncan.  The tall buildings, white street lights, and palm trees gave the display a Miami feel.  The city scene was dominated by the Classic Space Headquarters building.  This is the place where minifigs plan their adventure and reach for the stars.  Behind the building was a taste of classic space itself with several sets dating back as far as 1979!!  Now that is some old LEGO.

 Another addition to the show was a 1/60th scale Delta IV Heavy Rocket and Shuttle Orbiter complete with booster rockets and solid fuel tank.  These join John’s already impressive rocket park which includes the huge 8 foot tall Saturn V rocket and mobile launch pad.  That’s right, mobile.  You have to see this thing move to believe it.

 Of course all your favorite KLUG staples were on display.  The Harry Potter Experience has upgraded its Quidditch Pitch.  Now you can watch Harry and the gang fly, dive, and weave their way around while trying to keep those pesky Slytherin cheaters in place.  Stephen was running trains to the delight of fans and included his valley for kid level views.  Here the goats had to tread carefully as there were several hungry dragons about.  The Amusement Park has grown thanks to additional involvement from the club and look for this to grow as more members add to it.  Also look for Geoffrey’s patented Show In s Box (SIAB) to grow as well.  A new module is in the works and should be coming to a KLUG show soon.  There were several more creations on hand, but are just too numerous to list here.

We would like to thank Uke’s Harley Davidson for hosting us.  We would also like to thank them for expanding the show to two days.  One day of Lego is fun, but two is always better.  Look for KLUG to make a pit stop at Uke’s again in 2017.
