Ben Smith is an 80s throwback based in Bristol. When he is not herding children or making animated films for theme parks he makes spaceships out of LEGO. He often does this while shouting “Spaceship!” over and over.


What was the first set you bought?
I have fond memories of 497 Galaxy Explorer as a child, and I still have it on my shelf at home. As an adult I bought 10191 Star Justice and got sucked back in to the retro spacey goodness.

How long have you been making custom MOCs?
I pottered about somewhat aimlessly for 3 or 4 years. Then I discovered LDD at the start of 2015 and since then I’ve been obsessed!

What themes do you build in?
Space! I just build spaceships. I literally AM Benny from the lego movie. Spaceship!

What is your best creation?
I just finished this neat space speeder based on a film we did at work. Generally the last thing I did is the best thing.
