New Brickmania Digital Instructions (11/10)
Brickmania has released new digital instructions for sale on their website. The digital instructions they have added this week are the WWI British Armored Car (designed by Cody Osell) and Black Bess + Mark IV “Male” Conversion (designed by Daniel Siskind and Yitzy Kasowitz). Both of these models are really impressive and stand out for different reasons. The WWI British Armored Car has a cool shape that is really distinct and gives an interesting perspective on how vehicles like this have evolved over time. The Black Bess also has an interesting shape with some cool features built into it including a detailed interior with seats for driver/gunner, engine and transmission cover, and rotating starter crank. I also found it interesting that according to the Brickmania product page the female version of the tank came “fitted with air-cooled Lewis machine guns and smaller side sponsons” while the male version had “larger sponsons to accommodate British 6-pounder guns that replaced some of the machine guns on the female variant”. If you don’t already have these awesome models in your collection it is definitely worth checking them out! In addition to the instructions there are also sticker packs and special parts (BrickArms and otherwise) available for purchase so you can complete these models in all of their glory.
