Day 5 Christmas build up

This year, I have noticed a number of blogs aiming to make their advent posts spoiler free.

While I have not done this until now, I can see the virtue in this, given that in Australia we are so far ahead of the rest of the world. Eight in the morning here is still six o’clock last night on the west coast of the USA, so I shall aim to minimise spoilers until you jump past the break.

So today, I shall give you this cryptic clue:

Round like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel.

It’s not that cryptic, but might help you guess the nature of today’s micro scale marvel

The Build Up is Almost Over

Well here we are… Christmas Eve. Have you been naughty or nice?

A post a day is certainly challenging!

Today we pull apart our snowman, and our sleigh to build the Jolly Man in the Red Suit.

Yes: it’s Santa Claus.

I have nothing to say about this other than this is a terrific ‘mini- miniland’ build. The detail of his beard and the arms, as well as the buttons on his ? Belt. ??coat?

And so many presents!

I have enjoyed the Christmas Build Up as an alternative to the standard advent calendar. I like pulling the models apart and building a new one. I hope you have enjoyed the ride!

We at Rambling Brick Headquarters would like to wish our readers a Merry Christmas, happy holidays or seasons greetings as you so choose.

We will take a few days off, and probably be active on instagram over this time.

Enjoy your break if you have one.
Play well.

Building up a snowman.

It’s the day before Christmas Eve.  If you are in the Northern Hemisphere (or indeed on Cradle Mountain in Tasmania), and it is cold and snowing, why not build a snowman.  Built around a SNOT Core, the head is rotated forty five degrees to the body and has two coal eyes and a carrot nose (well, an orange cone anyway!)

We have only one more build left after this one… Who could you possibly be hoping to see on Christmas Eve?
