LEGO Ideas 10K Club interview with FlagsNZ

Posted by ,

One of the latest inductees into the LEGO Ideas 10k Club is Brickset's very own staff editor David Wardle (FlagzNZ), whose excellent Queen Victoria Cruise Ship project achieved 10,000 supporters in December last year.

While we wait patiently for the results of the third 2018 Ideas review, in which the ship is battling it out with four other projects, you can read more about David, the ship, and his project on the Ideas blog where he is the latest subject of a 10k club interview there.

Hopefully we will learn the results of the review soon: last year they were announced at the end of May and it's entirely possible that the announcement will be made during the Fan Media days this week.

As I've said before, as a regular cruiser, I'd buy the set in a heartbeat. Best of luck David!

I think it looks fantastic, really hope Lego picks it as one of the winners.

If we get it on the shelf, I'll be buying one.

Good Luck

This is the most impressive model of a ship I have ever seen, so it would be a real shame if it would not pass. Come on Lego!

David Wardle seems like an awesome genuine guy. Its exciting to see the project he was so passionate about reach 10,000 supporters. Congratulations David, best of luck.

It looks terrific, I'm not a cruiser and I'd buy it on day one. Fingers crossed, David!

I'd buy it... or more likely hope to get it for Christmas as I'm saving my money for a better computer right now.

Nice article, TLG could have proof read it before publishing though.

FlagsNZ shares his name with my father and grandfather, so on that basis, I think his creation should be the winner. :)

Shame it’s up against some strong competitors: the chemical plant looks sick and the piano, although I think it’s boring, will probably be a set. Still congratulations and I hope it gets made into a set.

Absolutely fantastic scale recreation!!! Certainly to buy!!!

When do you plan to build a Costa Crociere ship model?

The QE is the only ship I might have been interested in, as it is the only ship to still run trans Atlantic passenger ferry service. You had some strong competitors. Sorry to see your set did not make it.

Now, Here is hoping that LEGO can actually figure it out how to build an actual working playable (and properly tuned) piano. That was the set that I wanted to see win, and of all the sets, the one I was least interested in was the dinosaurs.

Again, sorry to see your set did not make it. Good luck with your next project/submission.

@FlagsNZ: sorry to hear about the results. Can't fathom why TLG decided to go with those boring skeletons in favor of your awesome ship.
You wouldn't by chance have made instructions for the ship which I could buy from you?
I have built Anio's Venator class UCS Star Destroyer so I am quite used to Bricklinking my way through larger projects :-)
