:lol: We are not britons ...British Summer Time or BST is the civil time during the summer months in the United Kingdom during which the clocks are advanced from Greenwich mean time (GMT) by one hour. It was first established by the Summer Time Act of 1916, was amended by subsequent acts and is now defined by the Summer Time Order of 2002 which laid down that it would be

Thanks. So it's basically GMT/UTC (ATM as Summer Time AKA DST is in effect) just to come up with a bunch of other abbreviations. :o

BST = Basic Sketchucation Time = Each Sketchucation mod or admin chooses a random time and date and implements it at various times during the competition. The Speed Modeling Challenge #13 was a good example of BST in action.

Here's my tribute to a great site and even greater contributors :D

I was gonna add some red bricks to spell 'I' ( do you spell 'I' ? :?: )

Anyway, it took me 32 minutes but i hope i'm allowed a little time as i used to love to play with LEGO ;)

Are these all individual entries? Did you start and complete all of them in the 30 minute time limit? But that, I mean did you start from scratch by building the lego bricks in each one and then putting them together. Or did you start from scratch and build them all in the 30 minutes?

Well I thought I would try this out for the first time - failed miserably!! :)

Speed modelling is not my strong point!

I could not finish my helicoptor in time. Probably needed another 15 mins!

combined time for all 5 was 2.5 hours = 30 min. per model.

once the basic lego blocks are created, it's easy to build with them.

… did you make the blocks again for each one, or did you re-use them from one model to the other :|

I know that this is just a fun contest and the rules aren't particularly rigid, but IMO there's no way that your models qualify as entries to this comp.

This is a simple speed modeling contest. 30 minutes, start from nothing, don't include components - go. Coming up with 5 models in 2.5 hours and then averaging them out to 30 minutes just doesn't work. Just as an example you could have spent one hour modeling the blocks and then 15 minutes each in arranging them. Averaged out you come under the 30 minute time limit, but in truth each model has taken the modeling of the blocks (1 hour) + the fifteen minutes of arranging to create the lego item.

Attempt 2!

This time I completed in 27 minutes.
Made all the difference, I actually found out the dimensions of a single block, therefore my pieces fitted together correctly this time!

I don't think making the blocks should be considered as we can all make the blocks. I think it is the way they are put together that is the challenge.

By the way Dylan...that's is pretty cool!! :thumb: :thumb:

Doesn't matter, the time given is the time to make the model from scratch. The bricks are part of the model. We're not playing with real lego here :bounce:

I am afraid of Legos. It goes back to my brother hitting me in the eye with one when I was 4. Can I do my entry out of Lincoln Logs? :mrgreen:

This was fun. Like Dylan, I found the dimensions so building it was pretty easy, after I planed it out on paper. 29 min. Cheers.
