    Glad to see this in Western Australia, if a few more people take up the calling it could really be something.

    A few pics to share.

    Amazing. Some people are extremely talented.

    That big cruise ship is immense. wonder if it's just a shell or if whoever it was bothered to make all the rooms in it...

    A couple of notes from someone who was there on friday evening setting stuff up (although not on the lego :upset: )...

    That bridge is free standing, and it's my understanding that it was decided late on friday to secure it to the roof because of the temptation for little(and big) fingers to poke at it saying "oooo, how strong is that bridge". Whilst spectacular, that much lego crashing to the ground would NOT be pretty.

    I hope the OP got some photos of the rest of the exhibition, there was some great modelling there, although not as good as last year I think.

    that bridge looks like its being supported by the rope right where the kink is :wired:

    it must have been a real "OH SHIT" moment to realise it was at risk of collapsing

    I also imagine the rope stops in topping sideways, sure it's not quite 'self-supporting' but damned impressive nonetheless.

    1 further thing to add, someone asked about the ship (the 'Fantasea' - I think it was called) in pic 15.

    In front of the ship there was a digital photo frame cycling through some interior shots of the ship (taken I assume during the building of it). The ship is a fully decked out ship, inside and out, with cabins and restaurants etc.

    A beautiful piece of lego engineering.

    Added:
    "sure it's not quite 'self-supporting' " It's not totally rock solidly stable, according to the guys building it they would need to make it wider to get more stability out of it, but for a long time on Friday is was completely self supporting with no ropes or any other type assistance.
