Meet the Newest Executive Member

Let me start by introducing myself. Some of you may already know me and some people do
not. My name is Chris Mitchell. I currently live in Corner Brook. I have been living here for
16years. I moved here to give my two girls a better life while they grew up.

I have always loved LEGO. When I was a child my parents would buy me LEGO for
birthdays and Christmas. However, I was only allowed to build the kit and then display it. I
was never allowed to play with it. Well that has changed.

Fast forward 40 years…

During the pandemic I was looking for something to keep busy as I waited to go back to
work. My first real “Adult” kit was Dom’s Charger. It took me the better part of three days to
put together. When I had finished I started to look at other kits. Mostly I would build larger
vehicles. The Harley Davidson, Land Rover and the Extreme Adventure are to name a few.
The Extreme adventure was the most difficult. This was the first advanced kit I have ever
seen that did not come with number bags.

There are many other themes that I do enjoy. Things such as the LEGO art, Ideas Kits and
the Modulars are some of the top themes that I am drawn towards.

In the last year I have moved from the standard LEGO kits to building more custom designs
and sculptures. I love to build “pop culture” related items. I find this is satisfying and
relatable to both young and old. I am currently looking to do more life-size builds. My latest
build of Thor’s Stormbreaker is the 3rd life-size build that I have done in my Marvel weapons
series.

There are also my custom underwater displays that I build inside fish tanks. In this series of
builds I use elements in ways that one wouldn’t think of. Things such as carrots , ice cream,
cheerleader pom-poms or even street sweeper brushes can be used to create beautiful sea
corals. There is no actual water involved. However, these builds do fascinate all who see
them. Lit up, these tanks will take you on a trip to an undersea adventure.

I have been a member of NewfoundLUG for approximately 2 years. I am committed to growing
the LUG here on the West Coast. I do encourage anyone who wants to join in the fun to
contact me either on FB or Messenger.

Let’s do this..
Chris
