Hello and welcome to my nightmare...Along with my meth-like addiction to all things LEGO, I am also cursed. Since childhood I have bled the silver and black; that's right, my name is Hans and I am a Raiders fan. Unlike my love for LEGO® and VW buses, I have passed the curse on to my lovely wife Lisa. When the Raiders lost in the Super Bowl to the Buccaneers, she got extremely intoxicated and , well, it wasn't pretty. So in honor of my curse(aka Al Davis) I have decided to do a couple of dioramas, this being the first: ROAD TRIP!
About this creation
The camper is set #7639, heavily customized to fit my needs and of course the Raiders colors. Below are some detail shots of the interior cab (notice the GPS, essential for any trip to Oakland), the extra cars and of course the pond and nature scenery.
I hope you enjoyed my little tribute and that you will stay tuned for the tail-gater and look at the Black Hole...Until then, thanks for stopping in.

Raiders fan - oh man, I'm right there with you buddy. My Lions will be back....some day. Cool series you have here - great humor.
The Lions have long been my second team, as Barry Sanders was my favorite football player growing up, after Bo Jackson went down. So, I know all about your woes. It could be worse, we could be Cleveland fans! LMAO~H
HAHAHA, Raiders? HAHAHAHAHA. Oh, sorry. I live in the Bay Area and half my fun is making fun of the Raiders and Niners. I do feel your pain for being a fan though. I am a Laker fan, we don't have the same problem as you. As for this creation, I love it! You did a great job on the whole thing.

Wow, that's awesome! This is hilarious, I am cursed from the Giants vs. Pats superbowl. 18-0 down the drain... I blame Eli Manning... jerk XD
Awesomeness, NEVER expect a Raiders fan to sympathize with a Pats fan! I give you the 'Tuck Rule'...X^P Just jokin', I have nothing but respect for any true fan. Just remember, you have to take the good times with the bad, even if it is 18-0 down the drain! P.S. I blame Randy Moss! LOL ~H
Awesome tailgate rig! Worthy of envy from any NFL fan! I, however, have been a fan of the Black and Gold and owned a terrible towel since a small child. GO 6 TIME WORLD CHAMP STEELERS!! (Sorry, had to do it.)

Nice tailgate rig! Worthy of envy from any NFL fan. I, however, have been Black and Gold for as long as I can remember. Go Steelers!
Thanks, I have nothing but respect for the Black and Gold, they have quite a history with my beloved team.(and Jerome Bettis was a bad ass) As long as your not in the AFC west, a Niners fan, or worst of all, a Cowboy fan!(you HAVE to hate the Cowboys) Because the Raiders are, well, the Raiders, I end up cheering on my fav player, Peyton Manning and his Colts. Thankfully, I also have my Oregon Ducks! Top ten and BCS bound baby!(irony would have us playing Boise State) Go Ducks! Quack, quack, quack!~H
