Rainbow Bricks visits the South Pole!

March 5th, 2017
Real Pistenbully
This is the real Pistenbully with a downward-looking radar to check for hidden crevasses in the snow that vehicles might fall into.

Rainbow Bricks visits the South Pole!

Well not exactly. We have two Brothers (Tim and Jeremy) who are Rainbows Bricks members and they have been fortunate enough to have one of their builds taken to the South Pole for the Winter!

Here is their story which they have kindly shared with us:

"This year we had a unique opportunity for one of our creations to be taken to the South Pole to spend the winter there. We only had 2 days notice to design, build, and pack this vehicle to be taken on its epic journey.

The vehicle is a called a Pistenbully and this one features a radar mounted on a tire that hangs out in front of the vehicle. This downward-looking radar looks down into the snow and checks for giant hidden crevasses that the South Pole vehicles might fall into.

We created a Lego replica as best as we could in only two days, and we're thrilled with the photos that have been sent back. The people at the South Pole are locked in for the winter so we won't see this again for another 8 months, but when we get it back, we'll take it to our Lego exhibitions to teach kids about the South Pole.

I've put some details in the comments for each photo. Enjoy!"

Great work guys and we look forward to seeing your South Pole display at our Rainbow Bricks events when the LEGO model returns in 2018!
