17th Annual Mount Cheam Lions Train Show

AbbyLUG & VLCThis was the second year of AbbyLUG participation at the long-running Train and Hobby show benefiting the Mount Cheam Lions. We had as much fun as last year getting our displays ready for the viewing public.

Castle, Space, Post-apoc, and Christmas Village sections were full of detailed custom models and sets.ArkhamPost-apocManor HouseClassic M-TronChristmas VillageThe two day event attracted thousands of attendees, both young and old and we had a great time talking about our hobby and answering questions. It seems that people are always amazed at the shape Lego bricks can take in the hands of a dedicated builder.Riders of.. the white hand?Who ya gonna call!?Last Minute?Especially popular was the Mad Max section built by our member Lee. Those old enough to recall the movie enjoyed picking out the various details added to the vehicles and characters.So much orange!Well dang!MaxSmaug made a special appearance atop one of the castle keeps, an early glimpse at the famed dragon from the new Hobbit sets.
