Now taking LEGO model commissions

LEGO model of Newcastle Central Station

13 August 2015

I spend a lot of time with LEGO: building it, supervising the build of Durham Cathedral in LEGO on regular shifts, and dreaming about it.

So, in a not-so-strange turn of events this year, I’ve been asked a few times if I could build a LEGO model on a commission, which is something I’m now offering under my LEGO alter-ego, Bricks McGee.

I can be fairly wide-ranging with my LEGO model building, and have been contacted about some of the ideas below, which has encouraged me to launch the idea:

  • A LEGO model of a local church, to be used as part of a fundraiser for the parish
  • A LEGO mosaic of a favourite family photograph
  • A microscale model of company headquarters building in LEGO
  • Bespoke LEGO models to help celebrate a specific occasion (e.g., an award a company has won)

I’m open to all ideas for commissioned LEGO models. If you’d like to see some more examples of my MOCs (My Own Creations; a bit of a twee LEGO-fan phrase for custom built LEGO models), head over to my Flickr account.

Update: LEGO models I’ve since built

I’ve had a great response to this, and have been involved in some fantastic LEGO model projects, including Little Landmarks, a LEGO exhibition of 11 landmarks in South Shields, which ran for 3 months in 2017. Not a bad result for something that started off as an experiment!
