Warren Elsmore - All books by this author

With video games, theme parks, a hit movie, and more, there’s no denying that LEGO is more than a toy…it’s a cultural icon! And no one demonstrates the power and versatility of LEGO better than master modeler Warren Elsmore. In Brick Vehicles, Elsmore puts the “GO” in LEGO with an exploration of the history of transportation. Starting with the humble wheel and rolling through centuries of land, sea, and air travel innovations, Elsmore showcases 40 fantastic vehicles in LEGO form. Includes full scenes in stunning detail, plus step-by-step projects for some of the smaller models. Readers are in for a treat with four fun chapters that cover:

  • Road and Rail—From the horse and carriage to the freight train and Mini Cooper
  • Rivers and Oceans—The HMS Victory, a speedboat, and cruise liner are included
  • Flying Machines—The Wright Brother’s first airplane, the Concorde, and more
  • The Final Frontier—Tesla electric car, Curiosity Mars rover, teleporter
More than 400 full-color images throughout. Enclosed with the book are two dramatic 17 1/2" x 24 3/4" posters featuring stunning models of LEGO® transportation scenes.

From the Reviews:
“What I like about Brick Vehicles as well as Warren’s other books is that they have a lot of building instructions for various vehicles. There’s at least seven builds per chapter so there’s a variety things that you can create and add to your city.”

“… No one demonstrates the power and versatility of LEGO better than master modeler Warren Elsmore. In Brick Vehicles, Elsmore puts the “GO” in LEGO with an exploration of the history of transportation. Readers are in for a treat … This has become my 6 and 8 year old’s favorite book. What they love about it is it not only features tons of transportation vehicles made of LEGOs, but there are also instructions for building them as well as facts on each page. My boys love vehicles and they love LEGOs so this book has been a huge hit with them. There is so much jam packed into it and the illustrations are full color photographs. So much fun and the book is nice and thick, definitely providing hours and hours of fun reading and building!”
