I’m Adrian Croshaw, live near Bristol. Currently I work as a postman and previously worked in a toyshop before that.

I have an interest in trains and trams and occassionally volunteer at Crich Tramway Village www.tramway.co.uk in Derbyshire.

Q&A

What was the first set you bought?
I remember playing with Lego alot when I was a kid, but don’t remember what my first set would have been. The oldest sets I can find in Brickset’s database that I know I owned appear to be a couple of small vehicle and pirate sets from 1990 when I would have been four.

How long have you been making custom MOCs?
I remember building custom models as a child, but as an adult, I returned to Lego from my Dark Ages in 2005 when I had the idea to build a model of a theme park for minifigs. I never got very far with that project, but have continued as an AFOL ever since.

What themes do you build in?
I dabble in a lot of themes, although a lot of my MOCs seem to be City based. I have plenty of ideas of things I’d like to make, but a lot of them only get half started and not many get finished. I pretty much build whatever I feel like at the time though, so as well as City, I’ve also built a bit of Sci-Fi lately.

What is your best creation?

My best creation would have to be either my model of a scene in part of a small warehouse or my model of a Blackpool Coronation Tram. The warehouse scene has a forklift truck which has accidentally reversed into some shelves, knocking them over and was displayed in the Cardiff Lego Store’s LUG Showcase in October 2012. When I built it, I tried to put in as much detail as I could to give it a degree of realism I’d not really acheived before. The Blackpool Coronation Tram was my first attempt at trying to build a real life object as near to scale as I could.
