Happy 150th Anniversary Canada!

To celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Canada, SLUG embarked upon a large-scale collaboration.  The idea of the project was to create a large topographical map with micro-builds representing landmarks from different regions of the country!

Brick requirements of the map designed by Jim Jo.

Members from the group chose 32x32 stud sections of the map to recreate with different heights of bricks and plates modelling the landscape.  These all came together for the first time at our first show of 2017.  As well, a series of  micro-builds were selected to represent a significant landmark or historical pieces from a region.  These too were chosen by the members to build and be placed on the map.
