Sphere instructions

    Newer Older

    This is nothing new to most builders. A young Lego enthusiast came and saw my collection and was baffled by how I was able to make a sphere. I made him instructions keeping in mind his small collection and lack of Travis bricks. I just thought I'd upload it anyway.

      Travis brick is the unofficial name for this piece.

      I'd sort of deduced that a Travis was probably a 1 x 1 snot brick, but why 'Travis'?

      Are there other Lego parts named after long-haul truck drivers? : )

      this needs 24 of the L plates and 24 jumpers! if you have that many of each you likely have a Travis or 8. Though you could have used them all...

      Travis Kunce was a reasonably well known AFOL who used the 1x1 5-stud brick frequently, and in fact if I am not mistaken had a tattoo of it on him somewhere. With his unexpected death some... what, 5 years ago?... the AFOL community named the part the "Travis Brick" in his honor. Actually it may have been known as a Travis brick before then, but it really stuck afterward.

      So if a lot of well known LEGO builders die young, shouldn't there be a health warning:
      -LOOK OUT, MOC building can be hazardous to your health.
      Do not try this at home, leave it to the proffesionals!!!!

      I know a few LEGO builders that all died reletivally young:(
