The models, which are displayed in Lego exhibitions, are designed by professional Lego artists. I was amazed by the attention to detail in the models at the Bricks in Time exhibition at Rheged. This summer exhibition tells English history in Lego models and ends on 4 September. If you have missed it, perhaps there will be a chance to see it somewhere else. (Brick City at The Beacon, Whitehaven continues for another week.) The wonderfully decorated Herdwick sheep are going to be at Rheged soon prior to their auction in aid of the Calvert Trust. I spotted a few in various locations in Cumbria including one at Rheged. (Actually hubby spotted this one!)
There are lots of pictures of the Lego models of The Flying Scotsman online. Although I took lots of photos, I am only going to post the ones I took of a Victorian street. The details impressed me. Look out for the people’s hats. The milliner on the street must be doing well. There was a child with a hoop – a popular game. The pavement alone was a work of art.
