Febrovery 2018
While contests can provide plenty of motivation to get building, themed months are also a great way to have fun creating models with a bit less pressure.
February brings the return of Febrovery - a themed month where various builders come together to create space rovers.
The requirements are simple: create a sci-fi exploration ground vehicle, with wheels that should have one minifig as a driver minimum. Small builds are actually encouraged, with builders being challenged to try and make a rover with 150 or less parts. Though using more pieces is allowed if you would rather go big.
Check out all the others rovers that have been built so far, and share your own, in this flickr group.

The rover and train shown here, were built by Frost.

The Story of Moses
The baby in the basket. The parting of the Red Sea. The Ten Commandments.

One man's life weaves together 120 years of Israelite history - the life of Moses.

Fifteen InnovaLUG builders bring together fifteen builds telling his story. From his amazing rescue from death at an early age, to his bold stand before Pharaoh, to his death on mount Pisgah, Moses' life is replete with interest and instruction. Take a minute to refresh your memory and enjoy the builds!
