An Advent Adventure – The Advent Strikes Back

Last year Sysdev were given a Lego Star Wars advent calendar by a long-standing colleague and friend, who sadly passed away shortly after Christmas.  However, in memory of him, and because the team enjoyed the process, we have acquired another advent calendar this year.

Again, we will be opening a door every day, building the model and adding a picture to the blog.  Please note that practicalities at weekends may mean that some additions won’t appear until the following working day.

1st December (Michael) – R5-F7 is ready to help pilot us through a busy month
