The mosaic is finished! Brian Pilati, ULUG’s president, sent this message out after the build:
The project turned out awesome!
I really appreciate everyone who came and helped … we could not have done it without everyone!
This was a really great project. Thanks to SelectHealth for giving us this opportunity! 😀
As usual, the time lapse is after the break.
Ok, apparently the whole thing collapsing was an April Fool’s Day joke and the mosaic is still intact. Very funny guys. 😉 We’re getting really close to finishing up, and it should be done tomorrow. See today’s time lapse video after the jump.
Today was the second day of the build, and the model is coming along nicely. Tracy said:
The build was going really good today, until the thing crashed and we lost about 400 bricks off it. but hopefully we will be able to make headway on Wed.
The mosaic is still looking great. Watch another time lapse video after the break.
So… I suppose it’s about time to start updating the website again! We’ve been very busy for the last 7 months displaying at train shows and holding club meetings, along with a couple special projects for SelectHealth, a local health insurance company. In February we built a large LEGO cake to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of their logo, and today we started on a week-long project to build a large mosaic of the logo. The finished mosaic will contain over 11,100 LEGO bricks and will be about 4’x4′. Click the link below to see a time lapse video of today’s progress.
