Fans of Leica cameras will want to check out these sweet LEGO models of classic rangefinders. A real Leica camera will cost you thousands, so this is a more affordable way to have one on your shelf, even if it doesn’t work.
These were recently selling these at the Leica Miami Store, though it seems like they’re out of stock for now. Hopefully, they will get it back in stock soon. Each model measures 3 x 2 x 1.25 inches (7.6 x 5 x 3.2 centimeters) and weighs just 2 ounces (57g). These “cameras” are not 1:1 scale but on the tiny side. These aren’t official LEGO sets, but they look pretty cool.
The kit does not come with build instructions, but it appears the Leica Miami Store has just packaged the bricks together based on LEGO master Chris McVeigh’s building guides, so you can follow those instructions.
It’s too bad these are out of stock, but if you want, you can build one for yourself by getting the necessary LEGO pieces yourself over at the LEGO Pick a Brick site, and just follow along with McVeigh’s PDF build guides here and here.
