The news that Lego designs for the RAF Red Arrows’ iconic jets will be considered for production has sparked a flurry of ambitious suggestions for a number of other Lincoln landmarks and icons.
As reported previously, a petition to bring forward idea of Lego Reds met the required 10,000 supporters in just over a month.
Readers of The Lincolnite were quick to come up with more ideas that they’d like to see in brick form.
The most popular suggestion was the iconic Lincoln Cathedral.
Ellie Wright said: “If Lego make Lincoln Cathedral, I will be over the moon!”
Other historical landmarks like Lincoln Castle, the Stonebow and the Ellis Windmill were also proposed.
In the spirit of the Red Arrows, several readers also suggested the Vulcan Bomber.
The Bombers were Britain’s most high-tech jets for many years and were stationed at RAF Waddington, Scampton and Coningsby.
Rowland Bullimore also came up with several other aviation-themed ideas, including Lancasters, Spitfires and Hurricanes.
James Pearson suggested turning the first tank into Lego. It was built in Lincoln by William Fosters & Co in 1916.
Other readers took a more humorous view of the situation. Craig Way said: “The traffic issues. Maybe the chaps at Lego could find a solution?”
Elsewhere in Lincolnshire, the famous Boston Stump church is currently being built into a two-metre high Lego version which is expected to take over three years to complete.
Some readers wondered if Lego enthusiasts would appreciate miniature versions which could raise money for the church.
Any ideas which are put forward will need to collect 10,000 signatures on an online petition, as the Red Arrows did recently. The acrobatics team is now being conisdered by Lego for release as an official product.
