Chateau Saint Bernard
Bruce N. H. 18 X 05

Emmanuel Bernard is an AFOL from Lyon, France, who has been building with LEGO for the past 28 years or so. In the past few years, though, he's become much more active. His LEGO tastes run across a range of themes, from boats to trains to castles. When he was a kid he had set 6080, King's Castle, and he always wanted to improve on it. Well, now as an adult he has, and the result is Chateau Saint Bernard. Check out all of Emmanuel's creations at his website or his Brickshelf gallery.

Asgard and Viking life
Bruce N. H. 3 X 05

Lino Martins has been a LEGO builder since he was a kid, but around the age of 12 or so he largely entered his Dark Age, in which he didn't build much and kept his LEGO interests to himself. About 18 years later, though, he learned about the larger AFOL community. In particular, he teamed up with a group called Brick World, who create LEGO exhibits for museums and other public display. In that capacity he created these displays of Asgard and Viking life, that are currently on display at the Nordic Heritage Museum in the Seattle, Washington, area. If you are in the Pacific Northwest, or if you plan on attending NWBrickCon, you should plan a side trip to check it out. More details about Lino's creation can be found on the Brick World site.

In addition to being a member of Brick World, Lino displays his creations in his Brickshelf gallery. He hasn't been a big castle builder in the past, but he said he had so much fun with this display that he may do some more.
