WW2 in LEGO Starts Sunday – Note NEW Kansas City Location!
Brickmania will be taking several of our large displays on a mini tour around the country in February 2015. These include the 11 foot long World War II destroyer USS Nicholas, plus several World War II and other historic military dioramas. We will also have many of our kits, BrickArms weapons and other products available for the historic LEGO building enthusiast.
Here are some of the things you will see this February at WW2 in LEGO:
- An 11-foot replica of the World War II Destroyer USS Nicholas, one of the most decorated US warships in the US Navy.
- Battle of the Bulge Diorama 1: Spearhead to the Meuse – German armor on the attack!
- Battle of the Bulge Diorama 2: Relief of Bastogne – Patton’s Third Army
- North Africa campaign: British Outpost in the Desert, armor and aircraft refit and refuel for the impending clash with the Deutsches Afrikakorps.
- Pacific Beach Assault Diorama: US Marines storm a tropical beach held by the tenacious Japanese defenders.
- Soviet Tank Repair Depot: An urban tank repair facility
In addition to the World War II models, we will also have the following on display:
- Vietnam War Diorama: A montage of iconic scenes from the Vietnam War
- “Black Hawk Down:” A recreation of the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu
