Cool Duplo Project #53 – Supply Train

Rushed editing before the week end ends

The main attraction is this massive structure supporting an elevating spiral for the train to reach desk level. Such spirals I had done in the past were wobbly and without much pattern. I wanted to figure out the algorithm this time. You don’t want to drop it on your feet.

Seed Dissemination

There’s a bazillion dandelions this year. It’s been fun year after year to get the surprise of what nature decided to boost. One year there’s a bazillion fireflies, another it’s acorns, you never know and it’s always cool to observe and sometimes interact with the phenomenon. We had fun with dandelion seeds this year.

Robin’s style, force over grace

Bouncy RC

She’s old enough to have her own RC car now. We built it, and it ended up a thousand times faster than mine and Robin’s. It’s absurd how fast this thing can scream across the grass. So I got 2 more of the spiffy motors to upgrade our cars.
