Welcome!


We love our Lego and we want to show you some fantastic stuff we've been creating over here in Perth, Western Australia. 

In late 2007, a small group of like-minded adult Lego enthusiasts met up Sunday mornings to create a train and town layout for the 2008 Model Train Show.  We won Most Popular Exhibit and had a great time running the display.  A few more people have joined the group since then, allowing us to build bigger and better displays filled with unique creations.

We've been adding a few more images of the latest layout and a few other models.  More is coming in the following months leading up to June, when we pack up and head to Claremont Showgrounds for the Model Train Show.  Lots to do still so keep checking back.

January 2011

Happy New Year everyone!  Well, the guys here at PALS have been getting stuck into it already and have been producing some great Lego creations at The Art Gallery of Western Australia.  Take a look at some of our work here.  We're really proud of what we've done with such a limited palette of parts (around 20 different elements) and colours (well, just white actually!)  

These models and more are part of the LegoArt event which runs from the 17th - 23rd of January.  Inspiration was taken from the Peggy Guggenheim exhibit which is on until the end of the month.

New footage of our 2008 Kylie Minogue concert is up.  Check out all the Kylie goodness here.

around 10 000 people attended and not all of them voted.  It was a landslide!

Congratulations to everyone involved in making a fantastic Lego display! 

Dismantling and sorting of our winning layout is mostly done now, so it's on to planning and building the next layout.  Stay tuned...

The Model Railway Show has come and gone!  Take a look at how our display came together here

Click HERE to see a great video of the whole Train Show with a few cool shots of our layout (Click on Model Rail once there) .

The Bridge was a fantastic success! The structure held itself up while ropes prevented any sideways motion.  Other highlights included the Live 8 concert which always drew a crowd, the huge cruise liner and the theme park with all it's moving rides.

Lots of fantastic comments from the public with crowds often 3-deep around our display.
