It's been a few months since my last Ideas Showcase article.
In this article I take a look at seven Ideas projects. Four of these projects are quite dynamic so I have embedded their videos to enable you to have a chance of making a judgement of their value when they are moving.
Read on as I Showcase seven varied projects.
I have a soft spot for clocks and when I saw this project being promoted recently I knew that it would feature in my next Ideas Showcase article.
Mr Kleinstein has several projects underway and I have promoted some of them in previous Ideas Showcase articles.
This project is at 1600 Supporters and has over a year-and-a-half to reach the 5,000 Supporters milestone
Here is a three-minute video showing how this clock works. It is self-winding and uses the battery box as the pendulum weight.
Pursuit of Flight
In the Update to this project the aeroplane's spinning propellers have been represented using transparent dishes.
This is the only project of
JK Brickworks that is gathering support. The Pop-Up-Book has been approved.
This project needs 120 more Supporters to reach the 5,000 Supporter milestone.
Here is a four-minute video showing these two planes in their dog-fight as they fly through the clouds over an unsuspecting village.
As everyone must know, I like LEGO ships. I promoted this project seven months ago.
RV Calypso was the ship used by the French oceanographic researcher Jacques-Yves Cousteau. She was converted from a Royal Navy minesweeper and had served in the Mediterranean during WWII.
I grew up in the 1970s watching the TV show The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau.
LuisPG has really captured the overall look of the RV Calypso. Take a look at the other images on his project page.
LuisPG is a prolific project submitter. Have a look at some of LuisPG's other projects.
This project has had solid support and is on track to reach 5000 Supporters.
Antique Sewing Machine
The Antique sewing machine captures the essence of the foot-pedal powered sewing machines of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
This is pixeljunkie9's only Ideas Project.
It has nearly 1,200 Supporters with about a year-and-a-half to run to the next milestone.
This short, one-minute video shows the manually powered antique sewing machine operating.
Mitsuru Nikaido has several mecha type Ideas projects underway but the Mecha "T-Rex" is by far his most successful.
The project has just passed the 1,000 Supporters milestone and has 270 days to reach 5,000 Supporters target.
Pirate Ship Ride
This project would easily form part of your carnival theme park.
This is LeeYungChiu's only Ideas project.
It has 1380 Supporters with over a year-and-a-half to run to reach the 5,000 milestone.
The Pirate Ship is a motorized LEGO swing ship powered by only one LEGO PF XL-motor and a LEGO PF battery which can accommodate maximum 16 mini-figures.
This five-minute video shows the Pirate Ship Ride in action.
This is FlancrestEnterprises' only Ideas project.
The kakapo (Strigops habroptila) is an iconic flightless, nocturnal parrot that is endemic to New Zealand. The kakapo is critically endangered with a population of only 149 individuals.
It needs about 200 Supporters to reach the 1,000 Supporters milestone which I think it will easily achieve.
It's good to see that this is another Kiwi based Ideas project that is trending as Popular This Week.
So here are seven projects to have a look at. Four of these projects are very dynamic so please look at their respective videos.
I am always interested in your thoughts. Which projects do you like? Do you agree with my selections?
