I just moved out from my parents home and found a lot of Duplo Lego bricks, so I decided to make a centre mount for my TM Warthog biggrin
Glued all bricks together, drilled the holes, finished!

Sadly, the base plate is not heavy enough, so its not very stable...
But if you would mount everything on a wooden plate it should work.

Add a metal weight on the inside and just glue the bricks together. Then spraypaint the whole thing and you've got a winner! wink

Cool idea for sure, but if Lego bricks do costs a lot as they cost here you should consider to sell them e and build a better base with the money wink .
