Leica M9

Newer Older

I found myself in the peculiar postion of having to build a Lego Leica very shortly after Mr. Attaki had published pictures of his own stunning Leica M8. In order to prevent any sort of duplication of his build, I purposely avoided referencing his photos during the development of my M9.

Happily, my build would go in a slightly different direction. The M9 I patterned my build on has soft brown body and a different lens, which gives it a distinctly different look.

I'm rather proud of this build, especially given the short development time. The only regret I have is that there aren't any curved slopes in nougat/medium dark flesh, as it's a much better match for the actual color of the M9.

I'll upload a few addition photos of it over the next day or so.

    Yes! This is probably my favorite thing you did out of the lot. It's so classic and the color you chose for the background is perfect.
