2019 Parts Fest #2: Yvonne Doyle's marine research

Posted by Elspeth De Montes
Our next Parts Festival participant is Yvonne Doyle, a UK-based Irish builder who likes to dabble in the different scales offered by Belville and Scala. She also has the rare honour of having been immortalised as a green Classic Space minifigure, in LEGO® Ideas 21109 Exo Suit. While other participants have seemingly battled with using the Friends marine multipack parts, Yvonne has flourished!

Biff is Buffing

Biff is buffing his quarter scale model car. The new pieces from Mini Accessory, No. 11 in Silver Metallic ( 50018 | 6266977 ) are interesting and great for attachment points, while the little Octopus from Accessories, Marine Life, No. 1 in Vibrant Coral (6262127|49595) reminded me of some cleaning cloths.

Belville Beachcombers

Shell hunting at the seaside uses the Vegetable, No. 1 in Medium Nougat/ Medium Dark Flesh (6233214|37681) for the coconuts in the tree and the shells from the marine accessories.

Safe 'n' Sound

That huge wheel - Motorcycle Rim Ø 75 Solid in Medium Stone Grey/ Light Bluish Gray (6268590|46334) - just looked like a reinforced safe door when I first saw it and the Fabuland Ship Wheel in Medium Stone Grey (6278555|52395) was the correct scale to match.

Tropical Plant

The tropical corona flower is a rare and exotic jungle flower that again utilises the Octopus.

Crooked Table


A chic little conservatory table with the crooks - Tool, No. 10 in Medium Azure (6256157| 49492) - used to make stylish furniture legs.

Anatomical Fish

Anatomy class. It is quite difficult to use the brightly coloured fish from the marine accessoriesas something different, but they just looked a bit like lungs, intestines and pancreas to me! [Ed - those of you with anatomical knowledge will note that the conical shell shaped pancreas is actually not quite in the correct position - back to class Yvonne!]
