Build a Lego Penguin (Tux the Linux Penguin If You Like)

About: Due to my lack of free time I may take my time to respond to posts/comment etc.

Here's how to build a little penguin out of lego.
It may look pointless but consider these uses
Arctic Diorama/landscape
Decorations
exhibits
just to show how awesome you are

Or it could just be completely useless ;)

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Gather Materials

You will need the parts listed in the photo
I recommend using the same colours as i did first time then try with your own

Step 2: Base Assembly

Place the white 1x2 in the middle of the yellow 2x3 piece.
Then place the second 1x2 on top of that.

Step 3: Back Assembly

This is rather hard to describe
have a look at the picture.

Step 4: Add the Beak

Place half the yellow 4x4 on the white bricks ONLY

Step 5: Add the Head

Place the black 4x4 on the top to cap it all off

Step 6: Finite

Now make more if you want, of all different colours!
or try to make an entire arctic scene.
If you have any trouble notify me and I'll try to send more pics

    Totally cool, I just love it!!!

    I'd call it Tux Jr. Can you make us a Tux Sr. ?
    (dla888's avatar reminded me that Tux is somewhat fat).

    I'll give it a shot but with Year 10 exams coming up I don't know if I'll have time but if I do I'll give it a shot.
