2017 Skærbæk Parts Festival: the SNOT column

Posted by Admin
Welcome back to our Parts Festival where we gave 60 LEGO® fans an hour to make whatever they liked using a range of new LEGO elements as 'seed' parts for their constructions.

Today we look at models containing Brick 1X1X1 2/3 W/ Vert Knobs in Bright Red [TLG]/Red [BL] (Element ID 6187620 | Design ID 32952) - except that being such a functional piece, it usually gets buried in the build!

Such as within this spectacular geometric form which makes use of the Nexo Knights pentagonal shield tile (Design ID 22385).

Another geometric form, and the builder also made half of another one to reveal a core made entirely of the seed part! Of course you could use any number of other SNOT pieces to create the same effect.

That would be trickier in this instance, but still possible. Note also the use of the Plate 1X3 W/ 2 Knobs in Black (Element ID 6199908 | Design ID 34103) to create additional detail.

The compact cube in this scene would have been very fiddly to make out of other SNOT bricks.

And finally, the seed piece used decoratively! Combined with those 1x1 round plates they resemble lanterns.

Come back soon for more; we are posting every day.
