2018 Skærbæk Workshop: wheel hub

Two or three times a year, New Elementary run building workshops at AFOL conventions. Attendees use new LEGO® parts with general brick stock to come up with quick, interesting ideas. We’ve fallen a little behind at presenting the results to you so it’s time to play catchup! Just wind your clocks back to last September at Skærbæk Fan Weekend in Denmark where 70 builders spent a good couple of hours exploring some elements released in summer 2018. Here are some of our favourite creations and interesting techniques they came up with.

Hub Cap, dia. 24, No. 1 (Element ID 6227156 | Design ID 37195)

The Metallic Silver [TLG]/ Flat Silver [BL] hubcap is still only found in one set at present, 10262 James Bond Aston Martin DB5. Especially interesting are the illegal connections some people found.

Anne Jeppesen “Drone”


Erik Kraan “Compass"

Markus Rollbuhler “Creepy Carousel on top of a music box with lights on top"

Bartlomiej Huetter “V Wing Luxury Fighter with detachable fuselage"

Marco Mormasio “Window Castle”

David Eaton “Seven sided cage"


Erik Smit “Face"



Skærbæk Fan Weekend occurs on the last weekend in September and the registration period for 2019 closes on 30th June. Any AFOL from anywhere in the world is welcome to attend – and believe me, hundreds and hundreds of them do! Read more about Skærbæk Fan Weekend
