Hey everyone... I am not the first to do this I know, but I have not found others who have posted pics of doing this. What I have done here is built a wall mount for my Millennium Falcon, no, not a UCS version but my own (it is listed here on my pages). The mount itself is actually from a local electronics store, but as you can see from the photos, I built a LEGO mount on top so that it could hold my MF. The LEGO mount-part is all LEGO, no glue, no screws, no hardware to hold the model on the mount. Technic pieces can be very tough, and utilizing their strength (and engineering) is how I made this happen. Note my previous posts on this guy. When it fell it was not because a lack of strength of the mount, rather, a miscalculation of this blockhead (me) to put in wall anchors (I thought I would be fine, it is only LEGO after all. I guess 3200 pieces or so is heavy enough to rip screws right out of sheetrock).
About this creation
And now..... a pic of my whole office. Doesn't it look great!
Great idea, and well executed, too (at least the 2nd time around). Ran out of counter and table space for my MOCs long ago and about to run out of floor space as well. Never once thought about filling up the walls, too! One of the great benefits of building with LEGO -- especially in my case -- is the ability to recover from blockhead moves with no one the wiser -- unless you choose to let on. I never cease to be amazed at the strength of TLG's proprietary ABS.
Nice work, I like that you make practical things too. So far, I've done a small electronics stand that folds flat for travel and a laptop stand. My favorite of your pieces so far has to be the lego "office" I want one! lol
