Blocks magazine gets a fresh new look with Issue 43, launching the new LEGO Family Tree feature and checking out a detailed LEGO cruise liner.

Having spent a career at sea, David Wardle uses his know-how to construct an exacting replica of the Queen Victoria Cruise Liner and explains how this fascinating build project came to fruition. Top ten short-lived LEGO sets counts down those releases that had an exceptionally short shelf life, while Updating the Classics looks at a fun build project.

The first instalment of an all-new feature, the LEGO Family Tree, takes a walk through 40 years of LEGO Castle sets. In the reviews section an eye is cast over new releases from The LEGO Batman Movie and Star Wars themes, with one set getting the lowest ever score in Blocks magazine.

Technique makes waves, showing how to add an extra level of realism to choppy waters. For those looking to up-skill when it comes to brick photography, this month’s guide explains how to use lighting effectively.

When fans buy a set as huge and time intensive as the UCS Millennium Falcon, it is a shame to just have it sat on an oversized shelf – so Daniel Konstanski continues to tweak and improve the ship, this month adding smuggling compartments.

As well as all of that, regular features Brick Wife, Month in LEGO, BrickPicker, This LEGO Life and Month in MOCs round out another issue packed with LEGO fun.
