We try to keep as far away from politics as we can, but when famous Freedom Fighter, Nobel Prize Winner, former President of Poland Lech Wałęsa takes a photo with our models, it is something to be proud of.
Lech Wałęsa was invited to the 50th anniversary of Legoland, and Lego made special surprise for him – his own brick build Miniland scale figure.
During the visit, he and his grandsons also visited LEGO House, where he took photos with models of Polish Builders that are being presented in Masterpieces Gallery. Here is he with Jetboy’s creations:
Maria Skłodowska-Curie was one of the most outstanding figures in the world of science. Born in Poland, she studied and worked in France. Together with her husband, a French physicist – Pierre Curie – she discovered two radioactive elements – polonium and radium. She was the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize and the first person in the world and the only woman to receive this award twice – in two areas – chemistry and physics. She was friend of Albert Einstein. As one of the first women she made a driving license. She was not afraid to break old rules in the world where woman were just starting to fight for their rights.
I am very impressed by the achievements of Maria Skłodowska-Curie and therefore I decided to honor her in a way that I am the most familiar with – with a LEGO® creation. By voting we can make the scene an official set. Let’s do it!
How do we transport our models? Is the question we often hear on our exhibitions. Today i have 2 videos showing hour our models are transported:
If you wonder, the boxes are made out of 5 layer cardboard in a international standard FEFCO301. We ordered them here: http://www.cart-pack.pl/fefco.html but i would recommend finding local producer, as the boxes have to be sent folded, and that would be quite expensive.
As you see on video we have one of the sides unstapled so you can easily open it and remove the model. Cover is fully stapled.
If you have any more questions, please leave them in the comments, either here or on facebook.
