In my latest Ideas Showcase article, I am promoting several projects which have come to my attention through the designers getting in touch with me.
There is a total of eleven Ideas projects in this article. Support level ranges from a couple of projects over the 5,000 supporter threshold, and there are a few projects that currently sit at a few hundred supports.
Read on as I describe these worthy Ideas projects. Please also consider clicking on the links and pledging your support. The whole support process has been made extremely easy: you won't need to answer any marketing questions anymore.
I am sure the designers would appreciate your support.
This project takes me on a trip down memory lane.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was a musical adventure fantasy film released in 1968. Norders has faithfully recreated the magical car - Chitty Chitty Bang Bang - so named for the unusual sound of its engine made.
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is by far Norders' most popular project. It has been resubmitted and now has substantial support. It is less than 800 supporters from the next milestone: 5,000 supporters.
Measurements is one of three scientific instruments Ideas projects that hackules is currently gathering support.
This project appealed to me as I have used a theodolite and a sextant professionally: I was a survey draughtsman when I left school, and I have trained as a ship's navigator and have used sextants for celestial navigation.
There is just under a year left for Measurements to gather slightly over 400 new supporters for it to reach the 1,000 milestone.
Hackules' Navigation Sextant project has just the sextant by itself along with a micro-built sailing ship.
Real Japanese pagodas have five stories inside and outside. Each floor has these meanings: Earth, Fire, Water, Wind and Sky.
This Temple of Hermit pagoda is three-storied from the exterior but five-storied from the interior due to the size and balance.
The Temple of Hermit is the only Ideas project that Brickfornia has submitted. There is solid support for this project. It has over 1,800 supporters with over a year-and-a-half to reach the next milestone: 5,000 supporters.
The Loud House is an American animated television series.
The Loud House became the top-rated children's animated series on American television within its first month on the air.
The project includes the twelve minifigures of the Loud family.
I like this model as it would make a realistic suburban house in a modular street scene.
Support for this Ideas project could do with a boost. It has nearly 400 supporters, and it has a year to reach the 1,000 supporters milestone.
This is the only Ideas project submitted by Cherry-Rose.
Steam Punk Pirate Outpost is another Ideas project could do with a boost. It has nearly 400 supporters, and it has nine months to reach the 1,000 supporters milestone.
This is the only Ideas project submitted by Lynk.
Surf and Turf has been designed for everybody who likes to make their beach area in the city a more beautiful place.
Support for this Ideas project could do with a boost. It has nearly 400 supporters, and it has over a year to reach the 1,000 supporters milestone.
Sebastiaan Dietz has three Ideas projects gathering support. I particularly like his Microscale Lego Trains Ideas project.
This Ideas Project is something different in that it comprises twenty-four unique animals that you build and collect.
LEGO release themed advent calendars every year.
This Ideas project feels like a Creator themed advent calendar, which hasn't been seen before.
This is DirectorWoollyPencil's only Ideas project. It has 134 supporters with a year to reach the 1,000 milestone.
I'm championing a young builder from New Zealand.
DovesBricks has created A Slice of New Zealand Ideas project. This is a theme known as Kiwiana: a bunch of items and icons from New Zealand's heritage.
This is DovesBricks's only Ideas project. It has over 200 supporters with over a year to reach the 1,000 milestone.
LEGO Insects: A Ladybug, Butterfly, and Dragonfly is another emerging Ideas project.
At just over 200 supporters, this is Railway Enthusiast's most successful Ideas project.
Let's see whether it will reach the 1,000 milestone. It has over a year to reach this target.
I watched the NASA: Mercury and Gemini Ideas project get to the 5,000 supporters milestone recently. This gives the project an extra six months extension.
The project has five months to get an extra 4,500 supporters for it to reach the coveted 10,000 supporters goal.
Gemini's objective was the development of space travel techniques to support the Apollo mission to land astronauts on the Moon.
With the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11's moon landing looming, let's see whether we can get this worthy Ideas project to the 10,000 supporters target.
Vostok 1 (Russian: East or Orient 1) was the rocket program that enabled the Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin to enter outer space and orbit Earth.
Let's not forget that during the late 1950s and early 1960s, the Soviet space program was leading the Space Race during the height of the Cold War.
Vostok 1 - The First Manned Spaceflight Ideas project has over 1,400 supporters with over a year to reach the 5,000 supporters milestone.
