    Red Squirrel

    created by Vuurzoon on 2011.12.24

    Main Section
    Let me introduce you to this cute squirrel:

    It’s an Eurasian Red Squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris). This squirrel species has, as the name suggests, a beautiful reddish-brown color. The LEGO squirrel is a female and is built in true scale.

    LEGO has produced many great animal sets. They are in general very suitable for playing. The idea is to release an animal set that looks as realistic as possible, without compromising for playability. By building in true scale, it will look even more real. The set must be a challenge to build, also for adult builders. The red squirrel is a good example: the organic shapes and hairy tail are great fun to build. After building, it can be displayed as a sculpture. For instance in your living room or even in your garden?

    I hope you like it!

    Enjoy LEGO building!
