My name is Colin Redner, and I am the newest member of the RAILBRICKS blogging team. I live in the U.S., in rural Michigan. I am not an active member in any LUG, because of my location far away from any large city. I have been a by-stander in the LEGO community for 5 years, but have only become active in the last year.
I come from a long line of Model Rail-Roaders, but I am the first to use LEGO as a medium. The models I build are mostly realistic fiction, but always based on something true. For example, I recently finished an Unstoppable series, and I am currently working on a large scale industrial complex.
I have always been inspired by RAILBRICKS and the LEGO community in many ways. When I first went to the NMRA convention in Detroit in 2007, I was amazed at how far LEGO has come, from the vague shapes of steam engines to the amazing details of what I am now seeing.
I am always willing to help anyone with CADing or building digital models. Just send me a message; I would be happy to help.
I look forward to helping out in the RAILBRICKS community. I have been reading the magazine since the second issue, and have enjoyed every word since.
