Tiny Guitars are Finger Pluckin’ Insane

Tiny Guitars are Finger Pluckin’ Insane
I’ve tried playing the guitar on a few occasions in my life, but I always got frustrated with proper fret placement that I like to blame on my fat fingers rather than my lack of coordination. So when I saw these miniature guitar models from Japan, I realized that things…

Hard Drive Starship Enterprise: Disk Space, The Final Frontier
Between its circular bridge and oblong warp nacelles, the Starship Enterprise is one of the most iconic spaceships in the history of science fiction. Whether you love the NCC-1701 in its original or its many other variants, they all share these common elements. But if you ask me, the NCC-1701-A…

Tickle the (Plastic) Ivories with This LEGO Grand Piano
LEGO sells all kinds of kits but they don’t currently make any which let you build a musical instrument. That could change if this LEGO Ideas grand piano model gets enough fan support. Eduard Reynolds designed this nifty LEGO replica of a concert grand piano, and it looks fantastic. The…

Bandai Millennium Falcon Model Is Nearly Screen Accurate

Bandai Millennium Falcon Model Is Nearly Screen Accurate

USS Enterprise Rebuild Underway at Smithsonian Space Dock

USS Enterprise Rebuild Underway at Smithsonian Space Dock
Fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation and later Trek productions know that computer graphics were used extensively, meaning there generally aren’t models of the Enterprise from Picard’s reign on.

Titanic Disaster Model in LEGO: I’m the Minifig of the World!

Titanic Disaster Model in LEGO: I’m the Minifig of the World!
Some artists work in clay, some in paint, but I think the ones that work in LEGO probably have the most fun. LEGO Certified Professional builder Ryan McNaught recreated the Titanic’s final moments in this impressively detailed model. This build took about 120,000 bricks and over 250 hours of free…

R2-D2 Gets Pumped up: Swole2-D2
Do you think R2-D2 gets mad that everyone writes him off as a little guy and makes him stay behind? Sure he saves the day a lot, but I bet he would rather be in the thick of it fighting with his friends. What if R2 decided to get pumped…

Bandai Y-Wing Model Kit Can Go Return of the Jedi or A New Hope Style
Growing up, I vividly recall getting $20 for my birthday and heading straight to the Star Wars toy aisle at the store. I really wanted a TIE Fighter or an X-Wing, but didn’t quite have enough money. I ended up with a Y-Wing fighter that was on clearance and spent…
