Young Lego champion moves on
EVAN Brown has already made a profit from his hobby at the tender age of 12.
The Gracemere boy scored himself a $50 voucher to spend on Lego at Rockhampton's Toyworld store after competing in a national competition.
The Lego enthusiast was rapt with his prize.
“I spent it on the second day that I had it,” Evan said.
Evan entered his spaceship creation into the National Lego Building Competition and won the prize for best entry at Rockhampton Toyworld.
The intricate design was complete with two small firing missiles, an airport underneath and a walkway on top.
He didn't keep his prize-winning piece long though, too eager to use the pieces for other creations.
“Soon after I made it I demolished it to make other things,” Evan said.
“I build all sorts of things, from pirate ships to space ships to bridges.”
Some of Evan's other favourite creations were an elevator for a mining base and an underground bridge with a lava stream below.
Evan had a tough choice of what to send in for the competition.
“I thought the bridge underground was a bit absurd so I went for the space shuttle.”
