Displaying items by tag: Vote for ferry in Lego

#VoteLegoFerry - A Scottish teenager, Luke Ball from Kilmarnock, has a dream to see his design of an iconic Calmac ferry produced in Lego.

Luke who turned 16 on Wednesday, writes Largs & Millport Weekly, has spent the last 18 months gathering support for his Lego version of CalMac’s Forth of Clyde ferry MV Loch Shira that serves between Largs and Isle of Cumbrae. 

His model design has so far gained a great following of 3,450 supporters on the Lego Ideas site – but to keep the dream alive the project must reach 5000 supporters before today's deadline of Friday 30th September for it to be considered for production.

Luke’s ferry design was inspired by happy family journeys on the Firth of Clyde and took him many hours to put together.

Without a final push and sudden rush of support, his design won’t make it onto the desks of the Lego executives.
