LEGO Navy Town on display at Maritime Museum

A     LEGO Navy Town, built by members of
      the Nova Scotia LEGO Users Group
(NovaLUG) is on display at the Maritime
Museum of the Atlantic until April 30, 2010.
    “Every time we come to the Maritime
Museum of the Atlantic, we like to put more of
the Navy into our displays,” said Owen Grace,
a member of NovaLUG.
   “This year, we’ve increased the footprint of
the Naval contingent and we even have some
Army men in it as well.”
   The elaborate tabletop display contains
approximately 300,000 pieces of LEGO and
features not only buildings, but a train and a
monorail running through it. Tiny figures of
people abound, as do trees and flowers. The
structures range from houses, fire stations and
a power plant, to stores, a hotel, wind turbines
and a Tim Hortons outlet. A quick glance at the
scene reveals details ranging from a chim-            A submarine, HMCS Sackville and several other ships are alongside in the LEGO Navy Town display at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.

W      hile most Canadians
       were watching the
men’s Olympic Hockey final
game on Sunday February
28, a work crew at 12 Wing
was busy cleaning up debris
from a severe wind and rain
storm that damaged several
buildings at the Wing.
  “Those guys didn’t get to
see Sydney Crosby score
the gold medal goal,” stated
Col Sam Michaud, 12 Wing
Commander.
  He emphasized he was
grateful that the crew was
there to deal with the large
amount of materials torn off
buildings during the storm.
  “We started picking up the
debris at 6pm that day and we
kept on until midnight,” said   Several 12 Wing buildings were damaged by the wind and rain storm on the weekend of February 26.
