One of my intentions when selecting builders for the NEXOGON parts festival using LEGO® part 27255 was to risk including people I'd never heard of. Kevin Levell used to build but that was eight or so years ago. However his renewed enthusiasm and ideas were so infectious, I just had to put him on the list! I'm already glad I did: here's his first bunch of creations for your enjoyment.

How I got there...I had awoken from near hibernation, very nearly a second "dark age" when I found New Elementary. I had been looking for a way to kick-start my own MOC building again when I saw Tim's initial Nexogon post and, after his subsequent call out for new contributors, I knew I wanted to be a part of it.
I initially wanted to see if I could build a ball and I couldn’t wait to start experimenting. I had quite a store of Plate 1X2 W/Holder, Vertical (or Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with Clips Horizontal (Design ID 60470b) and Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with Handle on Side - Closed Ends (48336), so I found one of the NEXO KNIGHTS™ blind bags 70372 Combo NEXO Powers and also made a semi-pre-emptive BrickLink order. I knew it wouldn't be with me for a while and at this stage I didn’t know whether Tim would choose me for the parts festival, but in my excitement I got a bit carried away with a parts experiment.
I started along the globe path and made three different sizes and whilst I was happy with them, I felt they lacked something, even when I added greebling, so I turned them into three spaceships.
