On this day in 1973, the first portable cell phone call was made in New York City, USA. I absolutely love these models by Chris, particularly the use of the lime green bricks as screens in contrast to the greys. Wonderful stuff.


Hello, I'm Séb, your friendly neighbourhood AFOL. As a child, Lego was always my favourite toy and now as an adult it appears nothing has changed. I emerged from my dark ages in 2011 after rediscovering my old sets in my parents' attic and haven't looked back since. I'm a big fan of the licensed themes particularly DC/Marvel Superheroes & Lord Of The Rings, though Creator Expert provides the more challenging & technical build I'm rather fond of.
